Contest Guidelines / Disclaimer

Who doesn't love a giveaway? Here are a few basic rules that must be followed in order for your entry to be valid.

The Rules (unless otherwise specified in blog post)
1. Enter giveaways by commenting on each specific giveaway post. Please leave a comment valid to the giveaway. Vague and spam comments will be disqualified. (i.e. "Great giveaway!", "Love to win!", "Awesome!") The sponsors have kindly offered a giveaway. Helpful comments related to the product are appreciated.

2. You must leave some way for me to contact you. If you are a non-blogger or your email is not accessible in your blog profile, please leave a valid email address within the comment section.

3. Winners are selected via random integer generator at, unless otherwise specified. Winners are notified by email and have 72 hours to respond; if no response, the prize is forfeited and an alternate winner is chosen.

4. Giveaways open to U.S. addresses only unless otherwise specified.

Giveaway Disclaimer
Giveaways prizes are nearly always shipped directly by the sponsor. Please contact me if you have not received your prize within a reasonable time frame. I will contact the sponsor to find the reason for the delay.

That said, I cannot be held accountable for sponsors actions regarding giveaways. I expect them to honor all promises and send winners their prizes; failed delivery of the giveaway item lies solely on the sponsor. I am also not responsible if discrepancies occur between the stated prize and actual item shipped by the sponsor.

Additionally, I cannot be held responsible for problems incurred by entering giveaways at other sites (the ones mentioned in my "Full to the Brim" postings.) I mention these giveaways only as a courtesy to my readers.

Thanks for visiting Brimful Curiosities! Good luck and hope you win some great prizes.
