Giveaway Rules

PwcMoms.com frequently runs giveaways or contests with sponsor companies or entities.  The following rules apply to all giveaways unless otherwise specified. 

Kristina Schnack, PwcMoms.com, and its contributors are used interchangeably as “PwcMoms” in the following rules.
1. Eligibility. Giveaways are open to readers worldwide, unless otherwise stated. Readers are responsible for knowing local eligibility requirements. Entrants must be of legal age to enter, presumed to be 18 or older, unless local rules require an older age. 
2. How to Enter.
Entry is typically made by leaving a comment on the giveaway post, but please follow post’s instructions for specific details. A limit of one entry is allowed per valid Facebook Account. You may not enter more than once, regardless of whether you use a secondary Facebook Account. Subsequent entries determined to be submitted by the same individual using multiple accounts may be declared ineligible. You may, however, obtain additional entries on a particular giveaway through other channels when applicable and prompted (i.e., by performing an action such as posting to Facebook, mentioning on Twitter, or blogging about the giveaway).
3. Disclaimer.
PwcMoms will not be responsible for: (a) any late or lost entries; (b) telephone, electronic, hardware, software, network, Internet, or other computer or communications-related malfunctions or failures; any giveaway disruptions, injuries, losses or damages caused by events beyond the control of PwcMoms or by unauthorized human intervention; (c) any printing or typographical errors in any materials associated with the giveaway; (d) unforseen changes to prizes made by the sponsor when unavoidable circumstances require an equal and adequate substitution
4. Entry Deadline Date.
All entries for giveaways through this site must be received on or before the given Entry Deadline Date to be eligible to win a prize.  See individual posts/Rafflecopters for details.
5. Winner Selection—Random.
A prize number will be assigned to your entry upon receipt of your entry. A winning number will be generated using Random.org on or shortly after the Entry Deadline Date. If your Prize Number matches the Winning Number, and you meet the eligibility requirements and otherwise comply with these Official Giveaway Rules, you win the prize.  Rafflecopter may also be used to host contests.  In this case, Rafflecopter will assign the numbers to entrants and select random winner(s), whose entries will then be verified. PwcMoms reserves the right to pick a second winner if the first winner's entry is not valid. 
6. Winner Selection—Contest.
Entries are reviewed solely at the discretion of PwcMoms and its judging process and personnel stated in the post. PwcMoms reserves the right to determine the standard of judgment of each entry. By this standard, winner(s) will be chosen.
7. Winner Notification.
Winners are announced in a timely manner, typically within 24 hours of closing, but may be announced up to a week after the contest closes.  Winner names will be posted to the Rafflecopter, if applicable, as well as to Facebook and Twitter, at the discretion of PwcMoms.  Email notification will be sent using the email provided in the entry.  
8. Claiming Your Prize.
Winner must respond within 3 days of announcement, or another winner will be chosen.  In cases of last-minute giveaways or contests where the prize is time-sensitive, winners may have less time to respond, which will be noted in rules on the individual post. PwcMoms is not responsible for winners not having access to email, not checking their email, or using an email address to enter that they do not regularly check. 
9. Taxes.
10. Prize Substitution.
Winner may not substitute the prize for any other prize or for cash, however, PwcMoms or the sponsoring company may substitute the prize for any other prize of equal or greater value, in its reasonable discretion, in the event the prize is not available for any reason outside of sponsor’s reasonable control.
11. Publicity.
Acceptance of prize constitutes permission to use winner’s name and prize information for promotional purposes in any medium, except where prohibited by law, without further payment or other consideration.
12. Errors and Disputes.
In the event of a dispute as to the ownership of any entry, the person whose name appears on the entry form associated with the prize number for the winning entry will be deemed to be the winner. It is your responsibility to control access to your email account. In the unlikely event that the winning prize number is duplicated, or a similar error occurs, PwcMoms may conduct a random drawing among such inadvertently duplicated numbers or apply another equitable remedy in its discretion to determine the winner. Decisions made by PwcMoms are final. By entering the giveaway, you agree to be bound by the decisions of PwcMoms and these official rules. You and your entries may be disqualified if you attempt to circumvent these official rules.
13. Technical Problems.
The giveaway may be canceled, suspended and/or modified, in whole or in part, if in the opinion of PwcMoms any fraud, technical failure or other factor beyond its control impairs the integrity of the giveaway.
