Any use of robotic, automatic, programmed or the like entry methods will void all such entries by such methods. 

FTX US may disqualify entries if the entry and related tag includes inappropriate, offensive, or other derogatory language or information.

If a selected potential winner cannot be contacted, is ineligible, fails to respond to the email in the time allotted and/or where applicable an affidavit of eligibility and publicity/liability release is not timely received, is incomplete or modified, their prize may be forfeited and an alternate winner may be selected from remaining valid, eligible entries.
