Giveaway Policy

I do host giveaways from time to time on my blog and I know, they are super fun but please before you enter, take the time to read through this page as there are some important things to know:

  • Entrants must be 13 years or have parental permission.
  • All giveaways will be hosted using Rafflecopter.
  • Winners are randomly chosen and will be promptly notified by email AND Twitter.
  • Winners have 72 hours to reply with their name and address. If I receive no reply in that amount of time, a new winner will be chosen randomly.
  • I reserve the right to delete any invalid entries at my own discretion without warning.
  • Duplicate entries will be deleted.
  • Prizes will be shipped approximately one week from the end of the contest. If, for some reason, I cannot ship the prize in one week, I will notify you with an estimation of when I can / when you can expect the prize to arrive.
  • I am not responsible for items lost in the mail. 
  • Personal information will be kept private through the duration of the giveaway and then deleted from my records as soon as the prize has been mailed.

These are just general things to keep in my mind for all giveaways but there may be specific guidelines for each individual contest as well so be sure to always read the giveaway post clearly too! For example, I may not always be able to ship internationally for each giveaway so that's something you may need to keep an eye out for in the post itself where I'll list the more specific details.
