2.2 If we will become aware of any fraud, deceit, misconduct, dishonesty or similar action concerning your participation in the Promotion or where you breach these Rules or the Special Terms, then we reserve the absolute right, to our sole discretion and without prior notice, to automatically disqualify you or invalidate your entry. If the fraud, deceit, misconduct, dishonesty or other action is only discovered after any prize has been awarded to you, then you shall be required, upon demand, to return the same (or provide compensation) to us forthwith upon notification to do so by us. Any failure to enforce any term of these Rules shall not constitute a waiver of that term.
2.3 Throughout the duration of any Promotion, strict rules regarding the behavior of all Entrants will be enforced by us and/or our designees. We reserve the right to take any action we deem necessary against any Entrant found to be in breach of these Rules or the Special Terms and/or acting deceitfully or dishonestly with respect to the Promotion and such action may include but shall not be limited to exclusion, suspension or disqualification from the Promotion, the confiscation of any prize or of any rewards that have been allocated and/or that would ordinarily have been awarded to that Entrant.
