Bloggers work hard to gain the privilege of offering giveaways on their blogs. It’s hard work promoting the giveaways in addition to ensuring that prizes don’t end up in the hands of cheaters.
Here are my basic guidelines:
1. I will run my giveaways for a minimum of two weeks, unless otherwise requested by the sponsor. The giveaways will be promoted primarily on Facebook and Twitter.
2. I will not tolerate cheaters. Please give me enough information to validate your entries. If you are trying to manipulate the system, you will be banned from my giveaways permanently. It is a frustrating experience to continually draw winners who did not complete the task they claimed entries for.
3. Please understand that if you do not respond to the winner notification within 48 hours, I reserve the right to choose an alternate winner. Sponsors sometimes have strict deadlines and I like being able to notify my sponsors without delay.
4. If you do not receive your prize within 30 days of accepting it, it is your responsibility to notify me so I can help you communicate with the sponsor. I will do my best to assist you. However, by entering my giveaways, you are agreeing that you will not hold me responsible for prizes that are not fulfilled. Such an occurrence is rare, but it does happen.
