Privacy Policy: I will never share your information without permission. I will reply to comments through my blog & will only contact you directly if you ask me to. If you win a prize, by entering the giveaway, you agreed for us to have your information (for us to send you the prize) or to forward your information to the sponsor who is hosting the giveaway. Other than that, we will keep any information you enter on our blog safe.

 

Copyright Policy: You may reference and/or link up to my posts whenever you’d like but please ask permission before or if you plan on using any photos. I'm usually okay with it as long as you ask me first & credit me. 🙂

 

Giveaways Policy:    All giveaways will be specific with the starting date & time and the ending date & time. All giveaways are DIFFERENT so be sure to read carefully & follow all rules specified in each giveaway.

  • Eligibility: Legal residents of the United States (excluding Puerto Rico, Guam and all other U.S. and foreign territories and possessions not otherwise mentioned) & Canada (excluding Quebec) are eligible to enter (some giveaways are only open to U.S. Residents so please read ALL of the rules to the specific giveaway). All Canadian resident winners may have to answer a simple question in order to comply with international regulations on sweepstakes.

In the United States, entrants must be 18 years of age or older as of the date of entry. In Canada, entrants must have reached the age of majority in the Province or Territory in which they reside as of the date of entry. We may ask you to verify your age. Void where prohibited by law.

By entering in any of the giveaways, each entrant is agreeing to comply with the giveaway policy, rules, terms & conditions.

  • Prizes: Each giveaway & prize value is different. We will be specific & will be sure to post the cash value of each prize in each giveaway. Winner is responsible for knowing and understanding their individual state and/or federal laws regarding high-dollar value giveaway prizes as they may need to report their winning as taxable income. PLEASE NOTE, depending on the sponsor, prizes may take 4-6 weeks to ship.
  • Choosing a Winner: Unless otherwise stated, winners will be chosen by random draw using Random.org or Rafflecopter.  Odds of winning depend on the number of eligible entries received. Winners will be announced on our Winners Wall. ALL winners are confirmed!
  • Claiming a prize:  Winner will be e-mailed (we will use the e-mail provided by entrant when they entered the giveaway) & will have 48 hours to reply or we have no choice but to pick another winner. A winner's prize may be forfeited and awarded to an alternate winner at our sole discretion if the winners don't respond within 48 hours, the return of a prize or prize notification as non-deliverable or the determination that winner is ineligible or otherwise not in compliance with these official rules.

By entering in any of our giveaways, the winners grant us, where permitted by law, the right to use and publish (via the Internet) winner's name, likeness, and comments without notification, review, or approval, and without additional consideration. BY ACCEPTING A PRIZE, EACH WINNER, RELEASES AND AGREES TO INDEMNIFY AND HOLD US HARMLESS FROM ANY AND ALL LIABILITY FOR ANY INJURY, LOSS, OR DAMAGE OF ANY KIND TO PERSONS, INCLUDING DEATH, AND PROPERTY, ARISING FROM OR IN CONNECTION WITH ACCEPTANCE, POSSESSION, USE OR MISUSE OF ANY PRIZE, PARTICIPATION IN THIS SWEEPSTAKES OR ANY SWEEPSTAKES-RELATED ACTIVITY (INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION ALL TRAVEL).

  • Please let me know if you haven't received your prize (within a month of being told prize was shipped) & I can try & see how I can help you but we are NOT liable for any lost, stolen, damaged or unsent items from sponsors.
  • Disclosure:  We may receive a product from a sponsor free of charge in return for hosting the giveaway on our blog (we will disclose) but that doesn't change our opinions on the product. All opinions stated on our blog are our own. Sponsors hosting a giveaway on my blog are required to give rules for their specific giveaway that follow all FTC rules and regulations. Sponsors are also required to handle all shipping costs. With giveaways hosted by various bloggers, the bloggers who helped sponsor the specific giveaway are ineligible to enter. PLEASE NOTE, for any review items, what may work for me, may not work for you.
