Each promotion has its own terms, which will be made clear at the time it’s issued to you (e.g. what products, single/multiple use, when it can be used etc).
We will try to avoid it but if a promotion can’t run properly because someone or something is suspicious – e.g. fraud, tampering, technical errors or anything else that is beyond our control that affects the running or fairness of the promotion – we can cancel, modify or suspend the promotion at our sole discretion.
