Review and Giveaway/Sweepstakes Policy

The following policy applies to this blog. Policy is subject to change.

Review Policy
  • Reviews require a full-size product to allow for adequate evaluation.
  • You must provide the product free of tax and shipping charges.
  • If the product is damaged upon receipt, I will contact you.
  • Products will not be returned after the review.
  • I will send you a link of the published review.
  • I only post positive reviews on my blog. If for any reason I cannot endorse your product in a positive way, you may decline the review.

Giveaway/Sweepstakes Policy
  • Giveaways/Sweepstakes with an accompanying product review are free.
  • Giveaways/Sweepstakes without a review are considered sponsored posts and will incur a fee.
  • For optional entries, I will include following your social networks, except Google+. Note: Google+ has a policy against using Google+ or the +1 button as entries. Additionally, people can "Like" your Facebook page and it can count as an entry into the giveaway. BUT, Facebook has a rule that fans can not post pictures  or comments on your wall saying that I sent them to you.
  • I will not ask entrants to make a purchase (or spend money) for entries as this violates FTC regulations.
  • Giveaways/Sweepstakes will run a minimum of two weeks unless it is for a blog event.
  • Winners will be chosen using www.random.org. I will notify the winner by email and ask for their contact information, which I will forward to you.
  • You are responsible for shipping the prize, free of charge, to the winner. This includes items purchased with gift certificates but does not meet your minimum value for free shipping.
