!Change it Promotions Guidelines


These Promotions Guidelines, along with the Statement of Rights and Responsibilities and all other applicable !Change it policies, govern your communication about or administration of any sweepstakes, contest, competition or other similar offering (each, a "promotion") on !Change it. A "sweepstakes" is a promotion that includes a prize and a winner selected on the basis of chance. A "contest" or "competition" is a promotion that includes a prize and a winner determined on the basis of skill (i.e., through judging based on specific criteria).


In addition to our other remedies, we may remove any materials relating to the promotion or disable your Page, application or account if we determine in our sole discretion that you violate any of our policies.
