Rules

To edit or customize your Rules, simply click within the text editor on the screen.

  • Minimum Age

On this step, you’ll need to set the minimum age requirement for your contest to the right of the text editor. Once you’ve set your minimum age, click Save and Approve, and you’ll see a green check mark appear next to Rules.

  • Winner Restriction

Winner_Restriction_ScreenshotYou have the ability to set the winner restrictions so that previous winners can be eligible to win again immediately after this promotion, or you can set the number of days until they are eligible to win again.

 

Heads Up! Restricting when a user can win again will prevent the user from winning in future rounds of the promotion, as well as for any other sweepstakes within the organization.

Terms of Service

To edit or customize your Terms of Service, simply click into the text editor and insert your own text, or make adjustments using our templates as a starting base. Make sure to click Save and Approve after entering your own edits.

Privacy Policy

To edit or customize your Privacy Policy, simply click into the text editor and insert your own text, or make adjustments using our templates as a starting base. Make sure to click Save and Approve after entering your own edits.

 

When all of these steps have been completed, you should see a check mark next to the Rules & Legal step on your contest Dashboard.
