All material modifications will apply prospectively only. Your continued use of the Services following any such modification constitutes your agreement to be bound by and your acceptance of the Agreement as so modified.

2. Earning Points
Program terms will vary depending on several variables, including the promotion, the associated property, and/or the Partner involved. You can earn points by posting messages on a Skybound website or social media page, liking Skybound facebook pages, and other activities that will be determined by Skybound and announced from time to time. Skybound will impose limits on the number of points that a Member can earn with a specified period of time.
As a condition of earning Points, you agree to comply at all times with the terms of all applicable Skybound and Partner offers, promotions, and programs, which terms are hereby incorporated by reference.

The number of Points required to redeem for a reward is subject to change at any time without notice. Points will be subtracted from a Member’s account once the redemption order is placed by the Member and captured by the Skybound system. Once used to claim a reward, Points will not be reinstated to the Member’s account. You agree to confirm that all information in your personal profile is up-to-date and accurate as of the time of any redemption.
4. Expiration; Inactive Accounts
As of the launch of the Program, Points do not expire over time. However, Skybound reserves the right change this policy in the future.
