  4. Ooredoo reserves the right to cancel or amend the Competition or the Rules without notice in the event of a catastrophe, war, civil or military disturbance, act of God or any actual or anticipated breach of any applicable law or regulation or any other event outside Ooredoo’s reasonable control.

    Qualifying Entrants

     
  6. Employees (or members of the families or households of employees) of Ooredoo, Starlink and any company involved in the Competition are not eligible to enter the Competition. Ooredoo reserves the right not to award a prize (and to select an alternative winner) if Ooredoo is aware or has reasonable grounds to believe that a winner is not eligible.

  9. Where a Competition is open to all age groups, Ooredoo assumes that by using the website and entering the Competition (and you warrant that) you are aged 18 or over or, if you are under 18, that your parents have consented to your entry into the Competition and these Rules. If a Competition is only open to a certain age group (e.g. 18 and over), this will be set out in the Competition Notice and Ooredoo assumes that by entering the Competition (and you warrant that) you are the appropriate age to enter the Competition.
     
  10. Ooredoo reserves the right to disqualify any entrant if it has reasonable grounds to believe the entrant has breached any of the Rules.

    Competition Entries

     
  12. Competition entries must be made in the manner and by the closing date and time specified on the Competition Notice. Failure to do so will disqualify the entry.

If more than one prize is awarded only one prize per entrant will be awarded. Competition winner(s)’ names may be published on the website.
