  • How do I make sure the College Basketball 3-in-1 no longer appears for our users to access?

If you have embedded the contest, you will need to remove the embed code from that page, or un-publish that page from your website entirely. It may be helpful to speak with your web or IT team if you are unsure of how to do this.

If you just added a link to the contest on your page, you can simply remove that link from your page. Again, it may be helpful to speak with your web or IT team if you are unsure of how to do this.

You can also deactivate the contest by switching it to Test Mode within the partner tool by clicking on the three dot menu next to the contest name within the Contests tab. Users will then see that the promotion is inactive if they do happen to click on a link to the contest.

Here is where you can switch the contest to Test Mode:

  • Is Second Street sending an email to users who registered for the College Basketball 3-in-1 bracket letting them know the bracket is not available this year because the tournament was cancelled?

We will not be sending an email to registered users. Instead, when a user visits the contest, they will see the message that appears on all pages of the contest letting them know that because the tournament has been cancelled, there will be no contest this year. Here is a screen shot of that message:
