Tickets are non transferable or redeemable for cash. For details of the terms and conditions of travel, please refer to the documents we will send to the winners. Please note that the winning right is only valid for customers who maintain accounts with the HSBC Premier at the time when we notify the winners. The gift of air tickets does not cover the passenger service facility charge, passenger security service charge, airport tax, insurance surcharge, and fuel surcharge. Winners will be notified of the details separately. Air tickets given as a gift are for ANA's economy seats. The air tickets will be valid for flights returning to Japan by 31 December 2011, and they cannot be used between 29 April and 8 May, between 17 July and 31 August, between 17 September and 19 September, between 8 October and 10 October and on or after 23 December.

Important notes of CNY deposits
Foreign Currency Deposits carry foreign exchange fluctuation risks. Due to foreign exchange fluctuation, the actual yen equivalent amount received in foreign currency could be smaller than the original amount in yen at the time of foreign currency deposit contract (i.e. there is a risk of loss of principal on a yen basis). Please note that the CNY is a currency subject to exchange control. There is a risk that the exchange rate may fluctuate considerably due to the currency policy of the Chinese government or changes in the economic and political environment. It is also possible that, depending on the situation, exchanging the CNY to another currency may not be allowed. If you convert yen into CNY at the time of deposit, or CNY into yen at the time of withdrawal, a one-way foreign currency exchange fee is levied (0.18 yen per 1 CNY at maximum). Cancellation of CNY time deposits before maturity is not allowed. Certain restrictions on CNY transactions will apply. For example, there are limitations to transaction amount and CNY remittance. Before applying for a CNY deposit, please be sure to read and understand the full product features and risks and the terms and conditions that apply. The Product Fact Sheet is available at HSBC Premier branches. Deposits in HSBC are not covered by Japan's Deposit Insurance scheme.
