  18. The Promoter reserves the right to verify all entries including but not limited to asking for a winner’s identity details (which they must provide within 14 days but which will not be retained following verification by the Promoter) and to refuse to award a prize or withdraw a prize entitlement and disqualify the participant where there are reasonable grounds to believe there has been a breach of these terms and conditions or any instructions forming part of the entry requirements or otherwise where a participant has gained unfair advantage in participating in the promotion or won using fraudulent means.
  19. The Promoter is not responsible in the event that a winner fails to receive their prize as a result of having provided an incorrect email address to which it is sent, the winner deletes the email prior to using the Apple Store Gift Card or does not redeem the Apple Store Gift Card prior to it expiring.
  20. In the event of circumstances outside the reasonable control of the Promoter, or otherwise where fraud, abuse, and/or an error (human or computer) affects or could affect the proper operation of this promotion or the awarding of prizes, the Promoter reserves the right to suspend the promotion or amend these terms and conditions, at any stage, with no liability to any entrants or third parties, but will always endeavour to minimise the effect to participants in order to avoid undue disappointment.
  21. This promotion and these terms and conditions shall be governed by and construed in accordance with English law and the parties to any dispute or action shall submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the English courts.
