Raflbot Terms of Service
Hi! We (the folks at JosephLCameron, LLC) run a text message sweepstakes service called Raflbot.
Raflbot is available through the Apple App Store & Google Play but please note:
Apple is not involved in any way with any sweepstakes created with Raflbot.
Google is not involved in any way with any sweepstakes created with Raflbot.
Raflbot is 100% General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) compliant. This means you will never receive a text message or email you didn’t explicitly opt-in for and your information will never be sold.
Full access to the Raflbot mobile app and all of its features is free with signup. We offer paid subscriptions to increase the maximum amount of entries your sweepstakes can receive every month. We hope you find our service fun and easy to use, but we ask you to become familiar with the terms of service below. Please contact us if you have any questions!
Raflbot’s Terms Of Service
Acceptance of Terms | This Mobile App, Raflbot.com, (collectively referred to as “Raflbot” or the “App” in these Terms of Service) is owned and operated by JosephLCameron, LLC (“we”, “us” or “JosephLCameron, LLC”). Raflbot provides free and paid services to you subject to the Terms of Service (“TOS”) below. By using and accessing our App, you (“you”, “user” or, “end user”) agree to these Terms of Service.
At any time, we may choose to update these Terms of Service by posting an update to this page. We encourage you to frequent these TOS as your continued use of any of Raflbot’s services will mean you accept those changes, whether you’ve read them or not. In addition, you and Raflbot shall be subject to any posted guidelines or rules applicable to such services, which may be posted from time to time.
Our Description of Services | Raflbot is a smartphone application that allows event coordinators (referred to as the Admin”) to run sweepstakes promotions by setting up a Raflbot phone number where they’d like to have individuals (the “Entrants”) enter the sweepstakes through text messaging MMS. Raflbot helps provide the tools that allow the Admin to moderate, verify, and automatically chooses instant-winners for their sweepstakes (collectively referred to as the “Service”).
You understand and agree that the Service may include communications from Raflbot, such as administrative messages and service announcements. These communications are considered part of the Raflbot membership. Unless explicitly stated otherwise, any new features that augment or enhance the current Service, including the release of new Raflbot properties, shall be subject to the Terms of Service. You also understand and agree that the Service is provided “AS-IS” and that Raflbot assumes no responsibility for the timeliness, deletion, mis-delivery or failure to store any user communications or personalization settings.
Raflbot is 100% General Data Privace Regulation (GDPR) compliant and does not send communications that were not explicitly opted-in for and we do not sell your information.
Raflbot Software License Rights & Restrictions | We hereby grant you a non-exclusive, non-transferable, worldwide right to access and use the App, solely with supported devices for your own internal purposes, subject to the Terms of Service.

Pricing, Billing, Cancellation, & Refunds | Full access to the Raflbot mobile app and all of its features is free with signup. We offer paid subscriptions to increase the maximum amount of entries your subscription can receive every month. If you elect to use paid aspects of the Service, you agree to the pricing and payment terms below. Raflbot may add new services for additional fees, or amend fees and charges for existing services, at any time in its sole discretion. Any pricing changes or payment terms shall become effective in the billing cycle following notice of such change to you as provided in these Terms of Service.
By choosing to add paid services, your account will be converted to a paid account (the “Paid Account”). Paid services a single Paid Account are non-transferrable. Raflbot accepts credit cards and will automatically charge your credit card monthly or each time you purchase a promotion depending upon which payment option you select. If any fee is not paid in a timely manner, or Raflbot is unable to process your transaction using the credit card information provided, Raflbot reserves the right to suspend or revoke access to paid services.
The fees for your Paid Account will be billed from the date you elect, or convert to, a Paid Account and on each monthly or yearly renewal thereafter unless and until you cancel your account. Raflbot will automatically bill your credit card each month or year on the calendar day corresponding to the commencement of your Paid Account. In the event your Paid Account began on a day not contained in a given month or year, Raflbot will bill your credit card on the last day of such month or year.
If your Paid Account began on January 30th, February 28th is the next time your credit card would be billed. You acknowledge that the amount billed each month or year may vary for reasons that include, differing amounts due to promotional offers, differing amounts due to changes in your account, or changes in the amount of applicable sales tax, and you authorize us to charge your credit card for such varying amounts. Raflbot may also periodically authorize your credit card in anticipation of account or related charges. Refunds for all fees and charges are governed by our Refund Policy.
Should you elect to upgrade your Paid Account to a more expensive add-on service, the commencement date for your next renewal period will be reset and you will be billed for the first month or year of the upgraded level of service on a pro-rata basis. For example, if you begin your monthly billed Paid Account on April 25th, your next payment would be due on May 25th. On May 28th, you upgrade your Paid Account to a more expensive add-on package and pay the new amount associated with the upgraded Paid Account you have selected, less the amount equal to 7 days at your previous Paid Account rate. Your next payment would then be due on June 28th.
Raflbot may change the fees and charges in effect, or add new fees and charges from time to time, but we will give you at least two weeks (14 days) advance notice of these changes by email. If you want to use a different credit card or if there is a change in your credit card validity or expiration date, you may edit your information by accessing your Subscriptions page. If your credit card reaches its expiration date, your continued use of the Raflbot constitutes your authorization for us to continue billing that credit card and you remain responsible for any uncollected amounts. It is your responsibility to keep your contact information and payment information current and updated.
Unless you notify Raflbot before the end of the applicable subscription period that you want to cancel, your subscription will automatically renew and you authorize us to collect the then-applicable annual or monthly subscription fee (as well as any taxes) using any credit card or other payment mechanism we have on record for you. Your subscription can be canceled at any time in your account dashboard.
Raflbot strives to maintain a reliable and secure environment for your data and promotions. Security and availability of our Service is of utmost importance to us. However, the reliability of hosting services, internet intermediaries, your internet service provider, and other service providers cannot be assured. When you use the Raflbot App, you accept these risks, and the responsibility for choosing to use a technology that does not provide perfect security or reliability.
The Raflbot mobile app and all of its features are free to use. It’s a great way to try out the Service free of charge if you’re thinking about adding additional paid services. Because of this, there is a refund policy in place for Raflbot Paid Accounts. We believe the policy to be fair and hope you find it fair, too. Contact Raflbot directly for refund inquires.
Raflbot is an mobile-based self-service. Mobile-based Self-services are a subtype of services driven by self-service technologies which provide technological interfaces allowing customers to use services independently of the involvement of direct service employee. While our Service hopefully makes it easy to launch a successful sweepstakes, much of the success of your Raflbot sweepstakes depends on your ability to promote your campaign. Raflbot does not provide refunds or credits for a sweepstakes deemed as ‘poor performing’ by the admin.
CANCELING RAFLBOT PAID SERVICES MAY CAUSE THE LOSS OF CONTENT, FEATURES, OR CAPACITY OF YOUR RAFLBOT.COM ACCOUNT. RAFLBOT DOES NOT ACCEPT ANY LIABILITY FOR SUCH LOSS. FULL ACCESS TO THE RAFLBOT MOBILE APP WILL STILL BE PROVIDED FOR FREE.
