Terms & Conditions
1. YOUR ACCEPTANCE
You affirm that You are either more than 18 years of age, or an emancipated minor, or possess legal parental or guardian consent, and are fully able and competent to enter into the terms, conditions, obligations, affirmations, representations, warranties, and indemnification set forth in these TOU, and to abide by and comply with these TOU. In addition, You affirm that You have not been previously suspended or removed from the Service.
We reserve the right to modify or discontinue the Service (or any portion of the Service), temporarily or permanently, with or without notice to You, and are not obligated to support or update the Service. YOU AGREE THAT ALLTROO SHALL NOT BE LIABLE TO YOU OR TO ANY THIRD PARTY IN THE EVENT THAT WE EXERCISE OUR RIGHT TO MODIFY OR DISCONTINUE THE SERVICE (OR ANY PORTION OF THE SERVICE). Unless explicitly stated otherwise, any new features that augment or enhance the current Service shall be subject to these TOU.
BY USING THE SERVICE, YOU AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THE MOST RECENT VERSION OF THE TOU. We may change these TOU at any time. Please review the TOU each time You visit the Service. If we have Your email address, we will notify You of material changes to the TOU via email. If we do not have Your email address, we will update this page to reflect any changes to the TOU.
These TOU include a disclaimer of warranties, a limitation of liability, a class action waiver, an arbitration provision, as well as a release and indemnification by You, in Sections 1, 5, 6, 9, 10, 13-18, and 22. Please review those sections (and all other terms) carefully.
3. THE SERVICE
The Service provides sweepstakes for a chance to win experiences or other rewards (“Sweepstakes”). You may enter as described in the Alltroo Standard Sweepstakes Terms and Conditions and each individual set of Sweepstakes Rules (collectively, the “Official Rules”) and Your participation is subject to those Official Rules. In the event of conflict or inconsistency between these TOU and the Official Rules, the Official Rules will govern. In the event of conflict or inconsistency between the Standard Sweepstakes Terms and Conditions and any individual Sweepstakes Rules, the Sweepstakes Rules will govern.
In addition to free methods of entry, each Sweepstakes allows You to support one or more causes (“Charity”) by making a monetary donation (a “Donation”) to Change Starts With Me, a U.S. 501(c)(3) tax-exempt public charity, federal tax ID # 85-1322019 (“CSWM”). CSWM has partnered with Alltroo to raise Donations from members of the public to fund grants to other Charities, including the Charities featured in the Sweepstakes on the Service.
For most Sweepstakes on the Service, approximately two weeks following CSWM’s receipt of Donations, and so long as the Charity continues to qualify as an eligible recipient of CSWM grants, CSWM will make a grant to the Charity equal to the net proceeds received as part of the Sweepstakes.
The net proceeds distributed as grants are generally equal to the total Donations received in connection with a Sweepstakes less the costs and expenses associated with that Sweepstakes, which include advertising, payment processing, prize fulfillment (other than prizes that are donated), and the costs of running the Sweepstakes. In addition, as part of the net proceeds calculation, approximately 15% to 20% of every Donation goes to Alltroo to cover the cost of providing and maintaining the Service.
While CSWM takes all reasonable steps to grant donated funds to the Charity listed in the Sweepstakes on the Service, including pre-qualifying the Charity for a grant, CSWM retains exclusive legal control over all Donations. In the unusual situation when a Charity fails to meet the requirements of CSWM’s policies and procedures, CSWM reserves the right to reassign funds to another organization of its choice and will attempt to support a similar Charity.
If You donate through the Service, You are making a donation to CSWM and You will receive chances to win prizes, however, no Donation is required to enter to win a Sweepstakes, and a Donation does not increase Your chances of winning a Sweepstakes. Because a Donation is not required to enter, and because CSWM is a U.S. tax-exempt charity, all Donations made by U.S. donors through the Service are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law. If You have tax questions, You should consult with Your own tax advisor. If You need a receipt for tax purposes, You can contact RallyForChange@Alltroo.com.

Should You do so, You will be ineligible to win the Sweepstakes in connection with which the Donation was made, and Alltroo may, in its sole discretion, refuse to honor pending and future Donations or entries made from all credit card accounts or online accounts on which such chargebacks have been made and may prohibit all persons in whose name the credit card accounts exist and any person who accesses any associated online account or credit card or who otherwise breaches this provision from using the Service.

19. EQUITABLE RELIEF
If You violate these TOU, we may seek injunctive relief or other equitable relief.
20. SUBPOENA FEES
If Alltroo has to provide information in response to a subpoena related to Your use of the Service, then we may charge You for our costs. These costs may include attorney and employee time spent retrieving records, preparing documents, and participating in a deposition.

22. ARBITRATION CLAUSE AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER
IF ANY DISPUTE ARISES BETWEEN ALLTROO AND YOU RELATING TO THE SERVICE, SWEEPSTAKES, TRANSACTIONS, EVENTS, ADVERTISEMENTS, OR REPRESENTATIONS CONCERNING THE SERVICE, DONATIONS, OR PRIZES, WE BOTH AGREE THAT THE DISPUTE WILL BE SETTLED ONLY THROUGH ARBITRATION. This means that neither Alltroo nor You will sue in court before a judge or jury, individually or as a class member. Instead, one neutral arbitrator will decide the dispute, and the arbitrator’s decision will be final except for a limited right of appeal under the Federal Arbitration Act. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only for the individual claims between Alltroo and You.
The arbitration will be administered by American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), in accordance with its Consumer Arbitration Rules. The arbitrator will be bound to follow applicable federal and state laws and regulations in deciding all issues and in rendering any award. The parties will be entitled to invoke the rules of discovery applicable to state court proceedings. The arbitration proceedings will be conclusive and not appealable, and any party to any award rendered in any arbitration proceeding will be entitled to have judgment entered on that award. Arbitration will take place in either Minneapolis or, at Your election, in the county where You are located. Each of us will pay our own attorneys’ fees and expenses and one-half of the arbitrator’s fees and expenses.
You may reject any change we make to this arbitration section and class action waiver by sending us notice within 30 days of the change. You may also opt out of this Arbitration Clause and Class Action Wavier by sending us a written notice so stating within 30 days following any transaction with us and retaining a copy of that opt out notice as well as proof of mailing of Your opt-out notice within the prescribed period. Either notice must be sent to Alltroo at P.O. Box 270522, St. Paul, MN 55127. If You do not provide notice and retain a copy for Your records, this Arbitration Clause and Class Action Wavier will apply.
ALLTROO AND YOU AGREE THAT ANY PROCEEDINGS TO RESOLVE ANY DISPUTE, INCLUDING ARBITRATION AND LITIGATION IN COURT, WILL BE CONDUCTED INDIVIDUALLY ONLY. Neither of us will seek to have any dispute heard as a class action, a class-wide arbitration, a private attorney-general action, or any other proceeding in which either of us acts or proposes to act as a representative for others. Alltroo and You also agree that no arbitration or other proceeding will be combined with another arbitration or proceeding without the written consent of Alltroo, You, and every other party to that arbitration or proceeding.
We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone for any reason at any time. These TOU constitute the entire agreement between the parties and supersede all other agreements, statements, and other arrangements between the parties in relation to the subject matter hereof. If any provision of these TOU is held by a court or other tribunal of competent jurisdiction, to be invalid, void, or unenforceable, such provision shall be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary and replaced with a valid provision that best embodies the intent of these TOU, so that these TOU shall remain in full force and effect. Each party acknowledges that it has not relied on or been induced to enter these TOU by a representation other than those expressly set out in these TOU. Alltroo and You do not intend to confer, and these TOU will not be construed as conferring, any right, remedy, obligation, or liability of any kind on any person other than Alltroo, You, and each party’s successors and assigns. No modification, alteration, or waiver of any of the provisions of these TOU will be effective unless in writing and signed on behalf of each of the parties.
