seriously and there will be consequences for anyone found to be cheating.
Club TDs or Online Managers should endeavour to ensure that all players are aware of what actions as acceptable and which are
definitely not – e.g. providing explanations in the chat area for partner to see as well as opponents is NOT acceptable, the alert
area only should be used
