TERMINATION OR SUSPENSION OF THE Vibrance SERVICES & MODIFICATION OF THESE TERMS.
We reserve the right in our sole discretion, at any time, to modify, discontinue or terminate the Vibrance Services or to modify or terminate these Terms without advance notice. Modifications to these Terms or any policies will be available on Vibrance Services. If any modification is not acceptable to you, your only recourse is to cease using the Vibrance Services.

Without limiting other remedies, we may at any time suspend or terminate your account and refuse to provide access to the Vibrance Services.

SWEEPSTAKES AND CONTESTS.
We may operate sweepstakes, contests and similar promotions (collectively, “Promotions”) through the Vibrance Services. You should carefully review the rules (e.g., the “Official Rules”) of each Promotion in which you participate through the Vibrance Services, as they may contain additional important information (including, but not limited to, information about our rights to and ownership of the submissions you make as part of the Promotions and as a result of your participation in such Promotion).
