- The Prize must be taken as offered and cannot be varied by the winner(s). Prizes are not transferable or exchangeable and cannot be taken as cash. Any change in the value of a prize between the advertising date and the date the prize is claimed is not the responsibility of the Promoter.

- Entrants must only enter in their own name. The Promoter reserves the right to request the winner(s) to produce (within a nominated time period) appropriate photo identification or other documentation (to the Promoter’s satisfaction, at its sole discretion) in order to confirm their identity, age, residency and/or eligibility to enter and/or claim a prize and any information submitted by the entrant in entering the promotion before issuing a prize.

Any part of a Prize that is not taken for any reason is forfeited and will not be substituted.
