Each entrant acknowledges and agrees that any failure to comply with the Rules could lead to that person being disqualified, without Churchill Central giving any reason for such disqualification or granting any opportunity for challenge.
Any person that is: (a) an employee of any company involved in the Treasure Hunts (including Bloomsbury Publishing Plc); or (b) a family member of such employee, is not eligible to enter the Treasure Hunts.
