  • Fill out the Rafflecopter form on the giveaway post. Be sure to follow and complete each task you’d like to for extra entries.
  • Prize will be drawn using Rafflecopter’s generator. This is drawn at random and I have no way of influencing the outcome.

OTHER IMPORTANT INFORMATION:

  • Please be sure to read my PRIVACY POLICY for any other additional and important information before entering the giveaway.
  • VERIFICATIONS: Since Rafflecopter offers you multiple entries for completing different tasks, I do verify the winning name and entry type to ensure it is legitimate. For example, if the winning entry was for following a site or author on twitter or tweeting, I will check Twitter to ensure the tweet or follow is there before confirming the win. If it is not there, I have the right to dismiss the entry and choose another winner at random.
  • SPONSORED/EXTERNAL GIVEAWAYS: Many of the giveaways on this site will be of my own hosting. However, there may be the rare case that the giveaway is hosted through another party, such as an author, publisher, or other marketing, publicity, or entertainment-industry personnel. These giveaways will be labeled as a sponsored giveaway somewhere on the post it is featured on. I will forward your name and e-mail to the external hosts and they will carry out with asking for your mailing address, confirming, preparing, and shipping your prize. I cannot be held responsible for any failure, delays, or breaches that occur on their account.
  • WHAT IS RAFFLECOPTER? AND WHAT DOES IT NEED?: Rafflecopter is a tool utilized my many blogs and websites to conduct giveaways or contests. It will only ever ask for your name, e-mail, and some social media links to complete tasks in exchange for entries. This critical information will not be distributed in any way.
  • ADDRESSES: Do not ever post your mailing address, e-mail address, or other identifiable and sensitive information in the comment section of my blog. I cannot be responsible for you revealing your own information, but will try my best delete these comments. I will only ask for your mailing address if you are selected as a winner, in which case, I will e-mail you to ask for it and congratulate you. The e-mail containing your address will be permanently deleted after your prize is shipped. If it is a sponsored giveaway, your name and e-mail will be forwarded to the external giveaway hosts. They will be responsible for asking for your mailing address (unless otherwise specified), confirming, preparing, and shipping your prize. I cannot be held responsible for any failure, delays, or breaches that occur on their account. How they handle or dispose of your information upon receipt is beyond my control or responsibility.
