7. ERRORS AND ANTI-FRAUD POLICY
The Company monitors the conduct of this competition and reserves the right to determine whether any of the results obtained do not reflect the actual performance of the participant, through the exploitation of design errors, fortuitous features and / or operational bugs due to the use of equipment in an inappropriate manner or by malicious intent / fraud in order to obtain an advantage over other players. We also endeavor to detect and prevent the use of any software that would enable any artificial intelligence device to play on the platform, including but not limited to fraudulent software or any other procedure which we believe gives the player an unfair advantage over other players who do not have access to such software ("AI software"). The player agrees not to use any AI software or any of these programs.
