Policies & Disclosure

Giveaway Rules:

When participating in any of our giveaways, you must follow the following rules or your entry will be disqualified and deleted:

  • You must complete the mandatory entry before any extra entries

  • You must have an email address in EACH entry. Entries without an email address will be deleted immediately as they are received.

  • Each entry must be a separate comment

  • If the action counts for more than one entry, you alone are responsible for leaving the appropriate number of comments. If you leave more than the required number of comments, all comments in that vein will be disqualified and deleted

  • Where appropriate, you must leave a permalink (ie to a tweet, blog button, or blog post)

  • If you are a Facebook Fan, leave your ID name

  • If you are a Twitter Follower, leave your Twitter @name

  • If you follow with Google Friend Connect or Networked Blogs, leave the name you follow with if it is different than the name you are commenting with

  • Each entry will be verified as it is being posted. Entries that do not follow any of the rules will be deleted as they are found to be invalid. The final winning entry will additionally be rechecked upon being drawn and can still be disqualified at that point if the entry requirements have not been met.

    Prizes: Prizes may be negotiated with me or directly with the sponsor, depending on the arrangement for that giveaway. All prizes will be mailed to you directly from the sponsor unless otherwise stated. This blog is never responsible for shipping costs or lost or damaged parcels.
