Promotions Guidelines

Just wanna share what I read over, well, Facebook.

Promotions Guidelines
Date of Last Revision: May 11, 2011
These Promotion Guidelines, along with the Statement of Rights and Responsibilities, the Ad Guidelines, the Platform Policies and all other applicable Facebook policies, govern your communication about or administration of any contest, competition, sweepstakes or other similar offering (each, a "promotion") using Facebook.
If you use Facebook to communicate about or administer a promotion, you are responsible for the lawful operation of that promotion, including the official rules, offer terms and eligibility requirements (e.g., age and residency restrictions), and compliance with regulations governing the promotion and all prizes offered in connection with the promotion (e.g., registration and obtaining necessary regulatory approvals).  Please note that compliance with these Guidelines does not constitute the lawfulness of a promotion.  Promotions are subject to many regulations and if you are not certain that your promotion complies with applicable law, please consult with an expert.
  1. Promotions on Facebook must be administered within Apps on, either on a Canvas Page or an app on a Page Tab.
  2. Promotions on Facebook must include the following:
    a. A complete release of Facebook by each entrant or participant.
    b. Acknowledgment that the promotion is in no way sponsored, endorsed or administered by, or associated with, Facebook.
    c. Disclosure that the participant is providing information to [disclose recipient(s) of information] and not to Facebook.
  3. You must not use Facebook features or functionality as a promotion’s registration or entry mechanism.  For example, the act of liking a Page or checking in to a Place cannot automatically register or enter a promotion participant.
  4. You must not condition registration or entry upon the user taking any action using any Facebook features or functionality other than liking a Page, checking in to a Place, or connecting to your app.  For example, you must not condition registration or entry upon the user liking a Wall post, or commenting or uploading a photo on a Wall.
  5. You must not use Facebook features or functionality, such as the Like button, as a voting mechanism for a promotion.
  6. You must not notify winners through Facebook, such as through Facebook messages, chat, or posts on profiles or Pages.
  7. You may not use Facebook’s name, trademarks, trade names, copyrights, or any other intellectual property in connection with a promotion or mention Facebook in the rules or materials relating to the promotion, except as needed to fulfill your obligations under Section 2.
  8. Definitions:
    a. By “administration” we mean the operation of any element of the promotion, such as collecting entries, conducting a drawing, judging entries, or notifying winners.
    b. By “communication” we mean promoting, advertising or referencing a promotion in any way on Facebook, e.g., in ads, on a Page, or in a Wall post.
    c. By “contest” or “competition” we mean a promotion that includes a prize of monetary value and a winner determined on the basis of skill (i.e., through judging based on specific criteria).
    d. By “sweepstakes” we mean a promotion that includes a prize of monetary value and a winner selected on the basis of chance.

The 30 day blog challenge - Day 16

something you could live without

janjararaaaaaannnnnnn!!!!!! A credit card!!!!

pic is from here
Don't get me wrong, it's not that I can buy anything I want in cash.  Well, it's partly that (haha) but there are a lot of reasons why (I think) I can live without it.

1.  I am not the bread winner of our family.  I do help in some of the expenses, but it definitely makes a big difference that I am not shouldering the whole of it.  Cheers to all you bread winners! Most especially you, ate! :)

2.  Although I am a very impulsive shopper, I too am a kuripot one.  Since I was a kid, I've never been used to having signature (not to mention, expensive) clothes or shoes or bags. So growing up, I didn't become so attached to them.  In fact, I squawk at blouses that cost more than 300 pesos. Haha!

3.  I am a tsangge type of gal.  While most girls boast how much their shopping finds cost, me, I boast how less it is! :)

4.  I have a boyfriend that is soooo reliable when my magastos button is switched on.  It helps too that he's always with me when I buy things. :D

5.  I think long and hard before I finally decide to buy a new gadget.  That's why after almost three years of employment, I only have two that I can really call my own. :)

6.  I don't like the feeling of paying for something that is already used up.

7.  I don't want to buy things that I can't afford, even if I could afford it through monthly installments.  ;p

8.  Lastly, (reemphasizing my point number 1) I think I can live without a CC because I am not obliged to buy things that I don't have the means for. :)
