CBS Interactive reserves the right to refuse or cancel your acquisition of CBS Interactive Coins or Goods at any time in CBS Interactive’s sole discretion.
(b) Account. You are responsible for maintaining the security of your account and password and making sure that no one besides you has access to them. In the event of a breach, you must notify CBS Interactive immediately here. You are responsible for all activities that occur under your account.
(c) Taxes.

2. CBS INTERACTIVE COINS
(a) General. CBS Interactive may offer you the ability to acquire CBS Interactive Coins and redeem those CBS Interactive Coins for use on the Sites through its online redemption center (the “Rewards Center“). CBS Interactive provides the CBS Interactive Coins to you without charge on a promotional basis. CBS Interactive may restrict your acquisition, use, and redemption of CBS Interactive Coins as follows: the number of CBS Interactive Coins that may be credited to your account balance at one time; the number of CBS Interactive Coins you may obtain or redeem within a given period (for example, within one day); the number of CBS Interactive Coins you may obtain in a single event; and other features and uses determined by CBS Interactive in its sole discretion. You may redeem CBS Interactive Coins solely through the Rewards Center. You may not sell or transfer CBS Interactive Coins to any other user or third party and may not redeem them for cash. CBS Interactive may restrict your ability to obtain or redeem your CBS Interactive Coins based on your place of residence. CBS Interactive reserves the right to change the acquisition of CBS Interactive Coins or to discontinue CBS Interactive Coins program at any time in its sole discretion.
(b) Redeeming CBS Interactive Coins. CBS Interactive Coins are redeemable for certain Goods as determined by CBS Interactive in its sole discretion from time to time. We may provide you with the opportunity to redeem CBS Interactive Coins for either Virtual Goods (as described in Section 5 of these Rewards Terms) or Tangible Goods (as described in Section 6 of these Rewards Terms).
(c) Expiration and Transfer of Unused CBS Interactive Coins. CBS Interactive reserves the right to expire or otherwise dispose of your CBS Interactive Coins if you do not use them within 90 days after acquisition, except if otherwise required by law.
(d) Voluntary Account Deactivation. If you voluntarily deactivate your account with CBS Interactive and have a remaining balance of CBS Interactive Coins, then you will not be able to use them until you reactivate your account. We will maintain your CBS Interactive Coins balance during the period of voluntary deactivation, subject to the expiration and transfer terms specified in Section 2(c) of these Rewards Terms.
(f) Posting Errors. If we post CBS Interactive Coins to your account for an activity that is subsequently voided or canceled or otherwise reversed, then we will remove those CBS Interactive Coins from your account. You are responsible for reviewing your account periodically to ensure that we properly post your CBS Interactive Coins. If you believe that you have validly acquired CBS Interactive Coins that we have not posted to your CBS Interactive Coins account, you must contact us within 90 days after the date you claimed to have acquired those CBS Interactive Coins or you will waive any claim. We may require reasonable documentation to support your claim.
(b) Leaderboard. CBS Interactive provides a leaderboard that details the users who have acquired the most CBS Interactive Coins and provides your ranking relative to other users. If you are listed on the leaderboard, it will display your first name and last initial, and if you are logged in using Facebook Connect, it will display your Facebook profile photo. If you are eligible to appear on the leaderboard and do not wish to appear on the leaderboard, you must deactivate your account.
5. LICENSE OF VIRTUAL GOODS
(a) License. In CBS Interactive’s sole discretion, CBS Interactive may offer you the opportunity to redeem CBS Interactive Coins for access to certain Virtual Goods through the Rewards Center. As part of this service and subject to these Rewards Terms, CBS Interactive grants you a limited, personal, revocable, non-transferable, non-sublicensable license to use the applicable Virtual Goods that you redeem through the Rewards Center. Even though we use words such as “acquire,” “redeem,” and “order” in these Rewards Terms and on the Site, you do not own any Virtual Goods and may only use them as licensed by CBS Interactive.
(c) Subject to Change. CBS Interactive may revise, discontinue, or modify Virtual Goods at any time without providing you with prior notice. CBS Interactive does not guarantee that any particular Virtual Good will be available. CBS Interactive will have no liability if a Virtual Good that you order is unavailable. If necessary, we reserve the right (i) to substitute items of equal or greater value when a Virtual Good is unavailable, or (ii) to cancel your acquisition and refund your account balance with the CBS Interactive Coins redeemed for the Virtual Good.
6. ORDER AND DELIVERY OF TANGIBLE GOODS
(a) Redemption and Shipping. In CBS Interactive’s sole discretion, CBS Interactive may offer you the opportunity to redeem CBS Interactive Coins to acquire certain Tangible Goods through the Rewards Center. You may be required to pay shipping and handling costs for Tangible Goods. In most cases, Tangible Goods will be shipped within 4 to 6 weeks of your order, but there may be circumstances when it may take longer. CBS Interactive does not guarantee delivery of Tangible Goods within a certain period. All orders are shipped FOB shipping point, and we are not responsible for any shipping delays, losses, or problems after any Tangible Goods have been shipped.
(b) Availability. Tangible Goods may only be available in limited quantities and are available on a promotional basis. CBS Interactive does not guarantee that any particular Tangible Goods will be available. CBS Interactive may revise, discontinue, or modify Tangible Goods offered through Sites at any time without notice. CBS Interactive will have no liability if Tangible Goods become unavailable after you order them and reserves the right to refund your account balance for any unavailable Tangible Goods.
(c) Item Descriptions. CBS Interactive provides fulfillment of Tangible Goods through a third party and does not warrant that product descriptions, photographs, pricing, or other content regarding Tangible Goods displayed on a Site is accurate, complete, reliable, current, or error-free. All weights and size dimensions are approximate.
(d) No Guarantees. All orders of Tangible Goods are final and non-refundable. CBS Interactive does not provide any guarantees regarding Tangible Goods. If you have any problems with Tangible Goods, you should contact the manufacturer. CBS Interactive reserves the right to cancel any order of Tangible Goods at any time at our sole discretion.
(e) Shipping and Taxes. If you choose to redeem CBS Interactive Coins for Tangible Goods, you must provide us with valid address where such Tangible Goods may be shipped. In certain circumstances, you also may be required to provide us with your payment information to pay for any applicable shipping and handling costs and applicable taxes.
Although CBS Interactive attempts to be as accurate as possible, CBS Interactive does not represent or warrant that any product, service, description, photograph, pricing, or other information is accurate, complete, reliable, current, or error-free. In the event of an error (whether on a Site, in an order confirmation, in processing an order, delivering CBS Interactive Coins or Goods, or otherwise), CBS Interactive reserves the right to correct such error. This correction may entail revising your order as necessary (including charging the correct price) or cancelling the order and providing you with a merchandise or service credit (including issuing, at our option, CBS Interactive Coins as described above), with a value at least equal to the amount charged to you. CBS Interactive reserves the right to determine and modify the exact nature of any such merchandise or service credit, including conversion into one or more different types of merchandise or service CBS Interactive Coins. Your sole remedy in the event of such error is to cancel your order and obtain a credit as set forth above. To request a credit, contact us here. You must report all errors within 60 days of when they occur, and if you fail to do so, you hereby release CBS Interactive from all liability and claims of loss resulting from that error.
