  3. In entering the Promotion, you confirm that you are eligible to do so and eligible to claim any prize you may win and you confirm that you accept these terms and conditions. You accept, understand, and acknowledge that we may require you to provide evidence or proof that you are eligible to enter the Promotion (and, if we do so, you agree to provide us with that evidence or proof promptly upon our request). Delay or failure to provide that evidence or proof to our reasonable satisfaction may result in an entry being void or a prize being withheld or forfeited. Our decision as to whether any participant is eligible for the Promotion is final and, so far as applicable laws allow, we are not obliged to provide any reasons for disqualification.
  4. We will not accept entries to the Promotion that are: (i) automatically generated; (ii) completed in bulk or entered by someone else on your behalf; (iii) from trade or consumer groups; or (iv) which we deem in our discretion to be incomplete. If it becomes apparent that you are using a computer or other device to circumvent these terms and conditions by, for example, the use of ‘script’, ‘brute force’, masking your identity by manipulating IP addresses, using identities other than your own, or any other automated means to increase your number of entries into the Promotion in a way that is not consistent with the rules or spirit of the Promotion, all of your entries will be disqualified and any prize awarded will be void. You may not enter the Promotion using anonymous email services such as, but not limited to, GuerillaMail, Dispostable, and Mailinator.
  5. We reserve all rights to disqualify you from the Promotion if we believe that your conduct is contrary to the spirit or intention of the Promotion.

Of these, one winner (the “First-Place Winner”) will be allocated first place, another winner (the “Second-Place Winner”) will be allocated second place, and another winner (the “Third-Place Winner”) will be allocated third place. The allocation of these places to the winners will be determined randomly.

  6. No trading requirements are needed to withdraw the prize; however, you will need to have successfully completed our ‘Know Your Customer’ (KYC) identity checks before you can withdraw the prize.
