  2. We may declare your entry invalid or disqualify you if you tamper with the entry process or otherwise act in a way that jeopardises the fairness of the competition.
  3. Prizes are not exchangeable or redeemable for cash, except at our reasonable discretion.
  4. We will announce the winner(s) within the competition post and notify them by commenting on their winning post. Winners will be required to send us a private message with their contact details, so we can arrange provision of the prize.
  5. Subject to any rights you may have under any applicable law, we are not liable to you for any loss or damage, including the loss of business or profits or any other indirect loss, which is suffered or incurred in connection with the competition and we will not be responsible for any technical, communications or other errors in the course of conducting the competition, nor failure of safe delivery of a prize.
