Placed may remove or require You to remove any materials relating to Your Incentive, or suspend or cancel Your Incentive or account at any time and for any reason, including if Placed determines that You violated these Terms of Service, or if we believe that the continued marketing or administration of Your Incentive may be unlawful under applicable laws, regulations, industry rules or guidelines, or may cause an unreasonable risk of liability or harm.
Placed reserves the right to review and approve Your Incentive at any time, but we are under no obligation to do so, and You agree that You are solely responsible for such Incentives, including for the selection, description, legality, and payment thereof.
