You must register for a Gallant account to use the Gallant Services (a “Gallant Account“). By using a Gallant Account you agree and represent that you will use Gallant only for yourself, and not on behalf of any third party unless you have obtained prior approval from Gallant.

During the registration for your Gallant Account, you agree to provide us with the information we request for the purposes of identity verification and the detection of money laundering, terrorist financing, fraud, or any other financial crimes and permit us to keep a record of such information. You will need to complete certain verification procedures before you are permitted to use the Site, Marketplace and Services.

We may require you to submit additional information about yourself or your business, provide records, and arrange for meetings with Gallant staff (such process, “Enhanced Due Diligence“). Gallant reserves the right to charge you costs and fees associated with Enhanced Due Diligence, provided that we notify you in advance of any such charges accruing.

Any attempt to do so or to assist others (users or otherwise), or the distribution of instructions, software or tools for that purpose, will result in the Gallant Accounts of such users being terminated. Termination is not the exclusive remedy for such a violation, and Gallant may elect to take further action against you.
You are also responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your Account information, including your password, safeguarding your own Digital Currencies, and all activity including Transactions that are posted to your Account (including all Instructions to Gallant). Any actions on the Site, transactions, orders, Instructions and operations initiated from your Gallant Account or using your password are (1) considered to have been made by you and (2) irrevocable once validated using your password or made through your Account.

You are required to notify Gallant immediately of any unauthorised use of your Account or password, or any other breach of security, by email to [email protected] Any User who violates these rules may be terminated, and thereafter held liable for losses incurred by Gallant or any user of the Site, Marketplace and Services.
WALLET AND CUSTODY
As used throughout, “Digital Currency” means only those particular digital assets and cryptocurrencies listed as available to trade or custody in your Gallant Account (also referred to as “Supported Digital Currency”). We engage with third-party custodians in order to hold Supported Digital Currency on your behalf, except that Gallant acts as custodian for your benefit for Athlete Coins (as defined herein) which may not be withdrawn from the Gallant platform. Your Supported Digital Currency will be held on your behalf in a wallet in the name of Gallant together with other users’ Supported Digital Currency. They may also from time to time be held in the wallet together with Gallant’s Supported Digital Currency which reflect Gallant’s fees, but which are recorded on Gallant’s ledger as belonging to Gallant, and which you instruct Gallant to collect by withdrawing them from the wallet from time to time. We will maintain detailed records of all Supported Digital Currency which users hold with third-party custodians appointed by us.
Except with respect to Athlete Coins, Gallant’s role is limited to providing you with a platform via the Site, Marketplace, and Services under which we act solely as a service provider, as your agent and in accordance with your Instructions for the management and transfer of Digital Currencies. Except with respect to Athlete Coins, we do not store any Digital Currencies directly, but where you Instruct us to arrange for any Digital Currencies owned by you (including any bought on your behalf) to be held until we receive further Instruction from you to sell or transfer them (with any deposit of Digital Currencies being deemed to be such an Instruction), we will, acting on your behalf, appoint a third-party as a custodian and to hold the relevant Digital Currencies as a custodian in accordance with our agency authority (see below). The custodian services will be provided on terms that apply directly between the custodian and you, and which will be made available to you. Any issues you have relating to custodian services should be taken up by you with the custodians, however, we may, on your behalf, provide assistance in accordance with our agency authority (see below).
Except with respect to Athlete Coins, Gallant will act only on your instructions in respect of Supported Digital Currency, and does not otherwise acquire any right, title or interest in them. Whilst Gallant uses reasonable care in the appointment of third-party custodians, in the event of a third-party custodian becoming insolvent or entering into an insolvency process in a relevant jurisdiction, you may have only an unsecured claim against the third-party custodian, and users’ Supported Digital Currency may be at risk subject to any protections provided at law in the relevant jurisdiction.
Notwithstanding the direct custodial relationship between the custodian and you, if for any reason Gallant is held or declared to have any legal or beneficial interest in your Digital Currencies, Gallant will hold on trust for you all such right title and interest which Gallant is held or declared to have and will not transfer or sell any Digital Currencies other than in accordance with your Instructions (which includes any instructions mandated by law, regulatory authority or enforcement agencies).
In order for us to manage the Site, provide the Marketplace and Services and create a direct relationship between you and the third-party custodian to hold the relevant Digital Currencies as custodian on your behalf, you appoint Galant as your agent with a perpetual and irrevocable (other than in the event of Gallant Account termination) agency authority to act as your agent to:
- Create a direct legal-custodial relationship between you and a third-party custodian for the custody of your Digital Currencies, as well as appointing authorised persons within Gallant to instruct such third-party custodians on your behalf;
- Access and/or transfer Digital Currencies as required for the operation of the Site and provision of the Services, including:
- Storing and keeping confidential private keys in respect of Digital Currencies;
- Transferring cryptocurrencies to third-party custodians (who are entitled in turn to appoint sub-custodians and provide the custodian services to you through such sub-custodians or other nominees or agents); and
- Moving cryptocurrencies between hot and cold wallets held by these custodians to allow sufficient hot wallet liquidity to support trades on the Site whilst at the same time providing the additional security of cold wallet storage;
- Share your information with third-party custodian-service providers so that they can be engaged to provide custodian services to you (see below);
- Undertake the following events that act, or could act as restrictions, or impact your rights:
- Freezing of Ripple accounts in accordance with Ripple Labs policy;
- Termination of our relationship with you and/or your Account;
- Suspension of our relationship with you and/or your Account;
- Prohibiting wash trading and other activities;
- Requiring minimum trade sizes;
- Blocking Accounts in certain circumstances;
- Applying service downtime and unavailability restrictions;
- Complying with enforcement-agency orders or regulatory actions; and
- Otherwise act only on your instructions in respect of any Digital Currencies, including in respect of:
- Any buying or selling of Digital Currencies;
- The accessing or transferring of Digital Currencies between wallets; and/or
- Any other purpose or action as instructed by you.
- Instructions received or directed via the Site or as received directly from you in any medium other than via the Site, where Gallant has expressly agreed in writing to accept such instructions from you;
- Instructions mandated by law, regulatory authority or enforcement agencies.
As a result of this limited agency relationship, we do not, and you agree that we do not, have or acquire any rights, title or interest in any Digital Currencies that are held on your behalf by the third-party custodian.
We are not an intermediary, do not acquire any rights, title or interest in, and do not assume and have no rights or control over any Digital Currencies or any other User assets other than in respect of actions taken in accordance with our agency authority and your Instructions. As a result, we will not transfer or sell any Digital Currencies other than in accordance with your Instructions (which includes any instructions mandated by law, regulatory authority or enforcement agencies).
Your Digital Currency wallet allows you to store, track, transfer, and manage your balances of Digital Currency. Services and supported assets may vary by jurisdiction. Your Gallant Account is intended solely for proper use of Supported Digital Currencies as designated on the Site. Under no circumstances should you attempt to use your Digital Currency wallet to store, send, request, or receive digital currencies we do not support. Gallant assumes no responsibility in connection with any attempt to use your Digital Currency wallet with digital currencies that we do not support.
Unless specifically announced on the Gallant Site or other official public statement of Gallant, Supported Digital Currencies excludes all other protocols and/or functionality which supplement or interact with the Supported Digital Currency. This exclusion includes but is not limited to: metacoins, colored coins, side chains, or other derivative, enhanced, or forked protocols, tokens, or coins or other functionality, such as staking, protocol governance, and/or any smart contract functionality, which may supplement or interact with a Digital Currency we support. Do not use your Gallant Account to attempt to receive, request, send, store, or engage in any other type of transaction or functionality involving any such protocol as Gallant is not configured to detect, secure, or process these transactions and functionality. Any attempted transactions in such items will result in loss of the item. You acknowledge and agree that supplemental protocols are excluded from Supported Digital Currency and that Gallant has no liability for any losses related to supplemental protocols.
We do not own or control the underlying software protocols which govern the operation of Digital Currency supported on our platform. Generally, the underlying protocols are open source, and anyone can use, copy, modify, and distribute them. We assume no responsibility for the operation of the underlying protocols and we are not able to guarantee the functionality or security of network operations. In particular, the underlying protocols may be subject to sudden changes in operating rules (including “forks”). Any such material operating changes may materially affect the availability, value, functionality, and/or the name of the Digital Currency you store in your Digital Currency wallet through Gallant. Gallant does not control the timing and features of these material operating changes. It is your responsibility to make yourself aware of upcoming operating changes and you must carefully consider publicly available information and information that may be provided by Gallant in determining whether to continue to use a Gallant Account for the affected Digital Currency. In the event of any such operational change, Gallant reserves the right to takes such steps as may be necessary to protect the security and safety of assets held on the Gallant platform, including temporarily suspending operations for the involved digital currency(ies), and other necessary steps; Gallant will use its best efforts to provide you notice of its response to any material operating change; however, such changes are outside of Gallant’s control and may occur without notice to Gallant. Gallant’s response to any material operating change is subject to its sole discretion and includes deciding not to support any new digital currency, fork, or other actions. You acknowledge and accept the risks of operating changes to Digital Currency protocols and agree that Gallant is not responsible for such operating changes and not liable for any loss of value you may experience as a result of such changes in operating rules. You acknowledge and accept that Gallant has sole discretion to determine its response to any operating change and that we have no responsibility to assist you with unsupported currencies or protocols.
Title to Digital Currency shall at all times remain with you and shall not transfer to Gallant. As the owner of Digital Currency in your Digital Currency wallet, you shall bear all risk of loss of such Digital Currency. Gallant shall have no liability for Digital Currency fluctuations. None of the Digital Currencies in your Digital Currency wallet are the property of, or shall or may be loaned to, Gallant; Gallant does not represent or treat assets in User’s Digital Currency wallets as belonging to Gallant. Gallant may not grant a security interest in the Digital Currency held in your Digital Currency wallet. Except as required by a facially valid court order, or except as provided herein, Gallant will not sell, transfer, loan, hypothecate, or otherwise alienate Digital Currency in your Digital Currency wallet unless instructed by you.
For the avoidance of doubt, any action taken by Gallant to suspend, delay, cancel or freeze any instructions and/or to suspend your Account will not affect your rights, title or interest in respect of your Digital Currencies which are held by a third-party custodian on your behalf (or with respect to Athlete Coins, held by Gallant), but may affect Gallant’s ability to execute your instructions, which you hereby acknowledge and agree.
You control the Digital Currencies held in your Digital Currency wallet. At any time, subject to outages, downtime, and other applicable policies, you may withdraw your Digital Currency by sending it to a different blockchain address. As long as you continue to custody your Digital Currencies the custodian (and your Athlete Coins with Gallant), Gallant and the Custodian, as applicable, shall retain control over electronic private keys associated with blockchain addresses operated by Gallant, including the blockchain addresses that hold your Digital Currency.
Due to regulatory or legal or related reasons, Digital Currency (including Athlete Coins) on the site or the trading of such Digital Currency may be cancelled or suspended indefinitely. Gallant reserves the right to take any action it deems necessary or advisable in order to comply with regulatory or legal concerns. In the event that such a cancellation or suspension occurs, Gallant shall have no obligation or liability whatsoever to you. In such circumstances, Gallant will use reasonable efforts to notify customers in advance to provide users time to exchange such cancelled or suspended Digital Currency for other trading pairs on the Site
You acknowledge that Digital Currency is not subject to protections or insurance provided by any government or self-regulatory body.
In order to more securely custody assets, Gallant may use shared blockchain addresses, controlled by Gallant, to hold Digital Currencies held on behalf of users and/or held on behalf of Gallant.

PAYMENT SERVICES, PURCHASE & SALE TRANSACTIONS
When you purchase (buy) Digital Currency on Gallant Exchange, this transaction is intended to effect a sale of Digital Currency. You can purchase (buy) Digital Currency using Digital Currency held in certain Digital Currency wallets, as permitted by Gallant (each a “Valid Payment Method“). Your purchase must follow the relevant instructions on the Site. Gallant reserves the right to cancel any transaction not confirmed by you within five (5) seconds after Gallant quotes a transaction price. A purchase of Digital Currency using a Valid Payment Method generally will initiate on the business day we receive your instructions. Purchased Digital Currency will be deposited in your Digital Currency wallet as soon as funds have settled to Gallant. Digital Currency purchases and sales are collectively referred to herein as “Digital Currency Transactions”. If Gallant cannot complete your Digital Currency Transaction for any reason (such as price movement, failure to respond, or an order exceeding the maximum order size), Gallant will reject the order and notify you of such rejection. You will not be charged for a rejected transaction.
In general, Gallant makes money when you purchase or sell digital currency on our Site. A full list of Gallant fees for your Gallant Account can be found on our FAQs page https://gallant.exchange/faq/. By using the Site, Services and Marketplace you agree to pay all applicable fees. Gallant reserves the right to adjust its pricing and fees and any applicable waivers at any time. We will always notify you of the pricing and fees which apply to your transaction when you authorize the transaction and in each receipt we issue to you. We may charge network fees (miner fees) to process a Digital Currency Transaction on your behalf. We will calculate the network fee in our discretion, although we will always notify you of the network fee at or before the time you authorize the Digital Currency Transaction.
When you give us instructions to purchase (buy) Digital Currency, you cannot withdraw your consent to that purchase.
When a Digital Currency transaction occurs using your credentials, we will assume that you authorized such transaction, unless you notify us otherwise. If you believe you did not authorize a particular transaction or that a transaction was incorrectly carried out, you must contact us as soon as possible either by email free of charge at [email protected] It is important that you regularly check your USDC Wallet, Digital Currency wallet balances and your transaction history regularly to ensure you notify us as soon as possible of any unauthorized or incorrect transactions. We are not responsible for any claim for unauthorized or incorrect transactions unless you have notified us in accordance with this section.
You will be able to see your Digital Currency wallet balances using the Site. You can also see your transaction history using the Site, including (i) the amount (and currency) of each Digital Currency Transaction, (ii) a reference to the identify of the payer and/or payee (as appropriate), (iii) any fees charged (excluding any spread, or margin, over the prevailing market rate on Gallant Exchange), (iv) if applicable, the rate of exchange, and the amount (in the new currency) after exchange (where you are the payer) or the amount (in the original currency) before the exchange (where you are the payee), and (v) the date of each Digital Currency Transaction.
You cannot cancel, reverse, or change any transaction marked as complete or pending. If your payment is not successful, if your payment method has insufficient funds, you authorize Gallant, in its sole discretion, either to cancel the transaction or to debit your other payment methods, including your Digital Currency wallet balances or other linked accounts, in any amount necessary to complete the transaction. You are responsible for maintaining an adequate balance and/or sufficient credit limits in order to avoid overdraft, non-sufficient funds (NSF), or similar fees charged by your payment provider. We reserve the right to refuse to process, or to cancel or reverse, any Digital Currency Transaction or Transfers in our sole discretion, even after funds have been debited from your account(s), if we suspect the transaction involves (or has a high risk of involvement in) money laundering, terrorist financing, fraud, or any other type of financial crime; in response to a subpoena, court order, or other government order; if we reasonably suspect that the transaction is erroneous; or if Gallant suspects the transaction relates to as set forth below. In such instances, Gallant will reverse the transaction and we are under no obligation to allow you to reinstate a purchase or sale order at the same price or on the same terms as the cancelled transaction.
DIGITAL CURRENCY TRANSFERS
If you have sufficiently verified your identity, your Digital Currency wallet enables you to send Supported Digital Currency to, and request, receive, and store Supported Digital Currency from, third parties by giving instructions through the Gallant Site. Your transfer of Supported Digital Currencies between your other digital currency wallets (including wallets off the Gallant Site) and to and from third parties is a “Digital Currency Transfer”.
Once a Digital Currency Transfer is submitted to a Digital Currency network, the transaction will be unconfirmed and remain in a pending state for a period of time sufficient to confirmation of the transaction by the Digital Currency network. A Digital Currency Transfer is not complete while it is in a pending state. Pending Digital Currency Transfers that are initiated from a Gallant Account will reflect a pending transaction status and are not available to you for use on the Gallant platform or otherwise while the transaction is pending.
When you or a third party sends Digital Currency to Gallant Account (“Inbound Transfers”), the person initiating the transaction is solely responsible for executing the transaction properly, which may include, among other things, payment of sufficient network or miner’s fees in order for the transaction to be successful. Insufficient network fees may cause an Inbound Transfer to remain in a pending state outside of Gallant’s control and we are not responsible for delays or loss incurred as a result of an error in the initiation of the transaction and have no obligation to assist in the remediation of such transactions. By initiating an Inbound Transfer, you attest that you are transacting in a Supported Digital Currency which conforms to the particular Gallant wallet into which funds are directed. For example, if you select an Ethereum wallet address to receive funds, you attest that you are initiating an Inbound Transfer of Ethereum alone, and not any other currency such as Bitcoin or Ethereum Classic. Gallant incurs no obligation whatsoever with regard to unsupported digital currency sent to a Gallant Account or Supported Digital Currency sent to an incompatible Digital Currency wallet. Erroneously transmitted funds will be lost. We recommend customers send a small amount of Supported Digital Currency as a test prior to initiating a send of a significant amount of Supported Digital Currency. Gallant may from time to time determine types of Digital Currency that will be supported or cease to be supported.
When you send Digital Currency from your Gallant Account to an external wallet (“Outbound Transfers”), such transfers are executed at your instruction by Gallant. You should verify all transaction information prior to submitting instructions to us. Gallant shall bear no liability or responsibility in the event you enter an incorrect blockchain destination address. We do not guarantee the identity or value received by a recipient of an Outbound Transfer. Digital Currency Transfers cannot be reversed once they have been broadcast to the relevant Digital Currency network, although they may be in a pending state, and designated accordingly, while the transaction is processed by network operators. Gallant does not control the Digital Currency network and makes no guarantees that a Digital Currency Transfer will be confirmed by the network. We may refuse to process or cancel any pending Outbound Digital Currency Transfers as required by law or any court or other authority to which Gallant is subject in any jurisdiction. Additionally, we may require you to wait some amount of time after completion of a transaction before permitting you to use further Gallant Services and/or before permitting you to engage in transactions beyond certain volume limits.
We have no control over, or liability for, the delivery, quality, safety, legality or any other aspect of any goods or services that you may purchase from a third party (including other users of Gallant Services). We are not responsible for ensuring that a third-party buyer or a seller you transact with will complete the transaction or is authorised to do so. If you experience a problem with any goods or services purchased from, or sold to, a third party using Digital Currency transferred using the Gallant Services, or if you have a dispute with such third party, you should resolve the dispute directly with that third party. If you believe a third party has behaved in a fraudulent, misleading, or inappropriate manner, or if you cannot adequately resolve a dispute with a third party, you may notify Gallant Support at [email protected] so that we may consider what action to take, if any.
In the event that there are outstanding amounts owed to us hereunder, including in your Gallant Account, Gallant reserves the right to debit your Gallant Account accordingly and/or to withhold amounts from funds you may transfer.

Where legal, both entrants and winner consent to the use of their name, voice, and likeness/photograph in and in connection with the development, production, distribution and/or exploitation of any Contest or the Website. Winners agree that from the date of notification by Gallant of their status as a potential winner and continuing until such time when Gallant informs them that they no longer need to do so that they will make themselves available to Gallant for publicity, advertising, and promotion activities.
Gallant reserves the right to move entrants from the Contests they have entered to substantially similar Contests in certain situations determined by Gallant in its sole discretion.
CONTEST PRIZES AND PROMOTIONS
Guaranteed prizes are offered in connection with some of the Contests offered by the Website. Each Contest or promotion is governed by its own set of official rules. We encourage you to read such Contest and promotions Rules before participating.
We make every effort to display as accurately as possible the colors, features, specifications, and details of the Marketplace (including prizes and memorabilia) and Services available on the Site. However, we do not guarantee that the colors, features, specifications, and details of the Marketplace and Services will be accurate, complete, reliable, current, or free of other errors, and your electronic display may not accurately reflect the actual colors and details of the products. All Marketplace and Services are subject to availability, and we cannot guarantee that Marketplace and Services will be available. Certain Marketplace and Services may be available exclusively online through the Site. Such Marketplace and Services may have limited quantities and are subject to return or exchange only according to our Return Policy.
We reserve the right to limit the quantities of the Marketplace and Services offered or available on the Site. All descriptions or pricing of the Marketplace and Services are subject to change at any time without notice, at our sole discretion. We reserve the right to discontinue any Marketplace and Services at any time for any reason. We do not warrant that the quality of any of the Marketplace and Services purchased by you will meet your expectations or that any errors in the Site will be corrected.
Users may win prizes in various competitions on the Site from time to time. Many of these prizes include sports memorabilia, such as autographed images and gear. Gallant obtains these prizes from third party sites and businesses. Although Gallant (i) believes the memorabilia sold by such third-parties to be legitimate, authentic, and credible and (ii) seeks to obtain certificates of authenticity, Gallant makes no representation as to the legitimacy, authenticity, credibility, and condition of such memorabilia. IN NO EVENT WILL WE OR OUR DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES, OR AGENTS BE LIABLE TO YOU OR ANY THIRD PARTY FOR FRAUDULENT MEMORABILIA OR PRODUCTS OR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, CONSEQUENTIAL, EXEMPLARY, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES, INCLUDING LOST PROFIT, LOST REVENUE, LOSS OF DATA, OR OTHER DAMAGES ARISING FROM MEMORABILIA PRODUCTS OR YOUR USE OF THE SITE OR THE MARKETPLACE AND SERVICES, EVEN IF WE HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.

CERTAIN STATE LAWS DO NOT ALLOW LIMITATIONS ON IMPLIED WARRANTIES OR THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF CERTAIN DAMAGES. IF THESE LAWS APPLY TO YOU, SOME OR ALL OF THE ABOVE DISCLAIMERS OR LIMITATIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU, AND YOU MAY HAVE ADDITIONAL RIGHTS. THE MATERIALS IN THIS SITE ARE PROVIDED “AS IS” AND WITHOUT WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED.
Contest prize payouts will be published with the creation of each new contest. Gallant reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to cancel or suspend the contests (or any portion thereof) should virus, bugs, unauthorized human intervention, or other causes corrupt administration, security, fairness, integrity or proper operation of the contest (or any portion thereof) warrant doing so. Notification of such changes may be provided by Gallant to its users but will not be required.
CONTESTS OF SKILL
Contests offered on the Website are contests of skill. Winners are determined by the objective criteria described in the Contest deadline, roster, Rules, scoring, and any other applicable documentation associated with the Contest. From all entries received for each Contest, winners are determined by the individuals who use their skill and knowledge of relevant sports information and fantasy sports rules to accumulate the most points according to the corresponding scoring rules. The Website and Contests may not be used for any form of illicit gambling.
CONTEST STATISTICS AND LIVESCORING
To the extent that we offer ‘live’ statistics during gameplay, all ‘live’ statistics and other information provided through the Gallant Website and related information sources are unofficial. Live sports statistics and their respective components are offered for informational and/or entertainment purposes only and are not used to determine the results of our Contests. While Gallant and the third parties used to provide the Gallant Services use reasonable efforts to include accurate and up-to-date information, neither Gallant nor its third party providers warrant or make any representations of any kind with respect to the information provided through the Gallant Website and related information sources. Gallant and its third party providers shall not be responsible or liable for the accuracy, usefulness, or availability of any information transmitted or made available via the Gallant Website and related information sources, and shall not be responsible or liable for any error or omissions in that information.
Contest results and prize calculations are based on the final statistics and scoring results at the completion of the last professional sports game of each individual Contest. Once Contest results are reviewed and graded, prizes are awarded. The scoring results of a Contest will not be changed regardless of any official statistics or scoring adjustments made by the leagues at later times or dates, except in Gallant’ sole discretion.
Gallant reserves the right, in its sole and absolute discretion, to deny any contestant the ability to participate in head-to-head contests for any reason whatsoever. Further, Gallant may, in its sole and absolute discretion, invalidate any head-to-head contest result for the purposes of preventing abusive and/or any unfair or potentially unlawful activity, or in the event that there is a risk of any such abusive, illegal, or unfair activity.
Winners are posted on the Website. Before making any payment, Gallant may require that an entrant complete and execute an affidavit of eligibility in which, among other things, the entrant is required to represent and warrant that the entrant is eligible to participate in a Contest, is otherwise in compliance with this Agreement and, potentially, is required to provide documentation or proof of eligibility and compliance. If Gallant requests that an entrant completes and executes such an affidavit and the entrant fails to do so within seven (7) days, or Gallant otherwise determines that the entrant does not meet the eligibility requirements or is not in compliance with these Terms, Gallant reserves the right to terminate the entrant’s account and withhold or revoke the awarding of any prizes associated with such account. In such a situation, Gallant may pay out any withheld or revoked prizes to the other entrants in the relevant contest in a manner consistent with the Rules of the Contest.
