Unless stated otherwise on the contest/giveaway page, contests and giveaways are giveaways of items in which basic entry can be gained by simply filling out a form or leaving a comment with contact information and prizes are always drawn at random using, either manually or through the Rafflecopter service. Information gained from basic entries are never added to a mailing list and are only shared to the extent necessary to facilitate fulfilling the prize. Additional optional forms of entry may be provided which may require liking a page on Facebook, following and entity on Twitter or Google plus, or signing up for an email newsletter or list. These forms of entry are always optional and in addition to the simple base entry method.
The approximate value of the prize is listed in the contest/giveaway post and/or Rafflecopter widget, along with the time the contest/giveaway will run. There is no purchase necessary to enter or win.
All prizes are non-transferable and there will be no cash substitutes or other substitutes except that we reserve the right to substitute a similar prize of equal or greater value should the originally planned prize become unavailable. The winner or his or her parent or legal guardian is solely responsible for all federal, state and local taxes with respect to the prize. The prize will be mailed to the winner’s mailing address that they provide and, in the case of sponsored giveaways, may be mailed by the company giving away the price. Please allow six (6) to eight (8) weeks for delivery. When we host a giveaway on behalf of a company, we do not accept responsibility for prizes that are not properly mailed by the company either directly to the winner or to us for fulfillment. We act solely as a host on behalf of the company for their giveaway. We are not responsible for damage during shipping or for prizes that are lost after they enter the shipping process.
By entering or accepting the prize in any contest or giveaway the winner agrees to be bound by these official rules, terms, and conditions and to conform to all federal, state and local laws and regulations. Entries are void where prohibited by any law.
Contests/Giveaways are open to all readers unless prohibited by their local state/country. Our contest and giveaways are open to US residents only, ages 18 and above, unless stated otherwise. Prizes won by minors will be awarded to their parent or legal guardian on their behalf.
In the event that the prize winner does not meet eligibility requirements or forfeits the prize, the prize may be awarded to the next randomly drawn eligible participant. Winners will be notified by email and given one week to respond. Failure to respond within the that time frame will result in forfeiture of the prize and a new winner may be randomly drawn.
