Keep up with and understand the rules around entering official MalwareTips Giveaways and sharing a giveaway or a deal you find on the web with our Community.


Giveaways and Promotions forum on MalwareTips is divided into 3 individual subforums for easier navigation and content categorization. Those are :
  1. Giveaways, Promotions, and Contests
  2. Discounts & Deals
  3. MalwareTips Giveaways
Note: there is an additional subforum of Giveaways, Promotions, and Contests named Giveaways Archive where all expired giveaways and offers are stored.


[JUSTIFY]All giveaways, promotions, offers, deals, and discounts are organized, conducted and shared in terms and boundaries of our Forum Rules. We are a Security-oriented forum so our giveaways are and should be no different. Everything posted on this forum must, in a way, be connected to a field of Security, Privacy, and System Maintenance. Only software giveaways are allowed, so abstain from posting anything else. Everything you win on this forum is stored in a digital-only form. We reserve the right to change this in the future. All giveaways and deals on MalwareTips can be internal and external. Internal giveaways or Official MalwareTips Giveaways can only be run by staff members. Staff members in charge of the giveaways are @BoraMurdar and @Exterminator.[/JUSTIFY]


[JUSTIFY]This forum contains official giveaways from Events secured by official members of the Staff Team. Hosted by; BoraMurdar, exterminator20 or Jack.[/JUSTIFY]
  1. [JUSTIFY]The MalwareTips Giveaways section is for sponsored giveaways only. Members should not post a new thread in this section. This is only open for replies by members wishing to enter a particular giveaway. Only those members wishing to enter should reply to these threads.[/JUSTIFY]
  2. [JUSTIFY]MalwareTips staff in cooperation with the vendors are in charge of conducting the giveaways.[/JUSTIFY]
  3. [JUSTIFY]You are allowed to participate with one post and one account/IP address. Having multiple accounts on our forum is against our rules and will disqualify you.[/JUSTIFY]
  4. [JUSTIFY]Posting multiple times inside the thread is not allowed.[/JUSTIFY]
  5. [JUSTIFY]Only a valid entry will be considered! Any questions that might arise can be answered in the original post.[/JUSTIFY]
  6. [JUSTIFY]After the giveaway ends the giveaway is usually locked for further replies except in a case of need.[/JUSTIFY]
  7. [JUSTIFY]Discussing the product which is on promo on MalwareTips Official Giveaways is not allowed.[/JUSTIFY]
  8. [JUSTIFY]Replies should be posted only by the members who want to participate, other posts and replies that don't meet proper participation will be deleted.[/JUSTIFY]
  9. [JUSTIFY]Sharing the giveaway links on social media is a requirement of the giveaway. If you do not have a social media account then you are not eligible to enter. If you are concerned about your privacy, you can share the link and then PM to the staff member in charge of that giveaway so he may verify it. A note will then be placed on your entry that you have complied.[/JUSTIFY]
  10. [JUSTIFY]Replies such as "Hi"," Count me in","Thanks","I don't have Facebook or Twitter but thanks anyway", etc. or questions will be deleted and that member banned from replying for the duration of the giveaway.[/JUSTIFY]
  11. [JUSTIFY]If you are interested in and post an entry to a giveaway make sure you take note of the date in which winners will be chosen and log on to check on that date(too many winners have missed out on a winning license because of this reason). Winners not responding to their winning PM in a 3 day period and having to then select alternate winners and send out PM's to them just becomes too time-consuming for staff members.[/JUSTIFY]
  12. [JUSTIFY]Posting incomplete, protected or links leading to somewhere else than what is clearly stated in the giveaway requirements will disqualify you. There will be no PM's sent reminding you to post and or edit these required links.[/JUSTIFY]
  13. [JUSTIFY]Those entries not meeting the giveaway requirements will not be considered and will be deleted. It is not the responsibility of MT staff to contact that member and tell them they need to post a new entry.[/JUSTIFY]
  14. [JUSTIFY]Members that are using VPN Services or Applications, programs that hide/change your real IP address are asked to temporarily turn it off when posting a reply (participating) in the specific giveaway. If we detect activity from VPN Service, Proxy Server, Suspected Proxy Server, Known Proxy Sharing Device, Tor Network etc. specific post will be deleted and the member who posted it will be disqualified from current and banned for all future MalwareTips Giveaways![/JUSTIFY]
  15. [JUSTIFY]Those members with a +1 and above reputation (not likes) are no longer required to post their Introduction and Security Configuration links to enter the giveaway[/JUSTIFY]
  16. [JUSTIFY]Any member that wins a giveaway and tries to run a personal giveaway with a winning license or try to sell the winning license will be disqualified from current and banned for all future MalwareTips Giveaways![/JUSTIFY]
  17. [JUSTIFY]Be considerate of your fellow members and only enter those giveaways that you are really interested in. Many members are winning multiple times and then trying to trade away winning licenses for something else.[/JUSTIFY]
  18. [JUSTIFY]Do not try to cheat in any form as MalwareTips reserves the right to blacklist all licenses you won from Official MalwareTips giveaways in cooperation with product vendors.[/JUSTIFY]
  19. [JUSTIFY]Members who didn't fill all the asked requirements, or broke any of these rules will not enter the draw. Take these rules seriously as breaking some of them may result banning from all MalwareTips Giveaways and if repeated may result banning from the MalwareTips completely.[/JUSTIFY]
  20. [JUSTIFY]Other rules may be specific for each giveaway as details about them are arranged between the staff of MalwareTips and a sponsor or a vendor's representative. A thorough read of the giveaway requirements and rules is recommended and should be done every time and with every new giveaway as some details may change.[/JUSTIFY]
