Official ATTW4 Giveaway Guidelines

{for Sponsors and Readers}

And Then There Were 4… is committed to following to all FTC rules and regulations concerning blogs, websites, and promotions and/or giveaways.  In order to comply with these rules and regulations, I have written up the following guidelines into all ATTW4 giveaways and contests for our potential sponsors and readers to view:

Eligibility: All entrants and winners must be 18 years of age or older at the time of entry.  All non-US resident winners may have to answer a simple question or series of questions in order to comply with international regulations on sweepstakes.  (Per Canadian law, all Canadian winners must comply with this rule before they can receive their prizes.  Due to the stringent laws that Quebec has placed on sweepstakes, residents of Quebec will not be allowed to enter ATTW4 giveaways.) All giveaways and promotions are void where prohibited by law.

Entry Methods: No purchase is necessary to enter our giveaways but there will always be the option of obtaining extra entries for a purchase made from the sponsor site. There will be one or two Mandatory Entries into each giveaway. If for some reason you cannot complete the required entry, please email us within a timely manner for an alternate means of entry. Optional extra or bonus entry methods may be offered for tasks such as “liking” a particular FaceBook page or following a website or brand via Twitter. ATTW4 is not responsible for any lost or delayed entries or technical errors. All entrants that do not adhere to these rules, or are not truthful when entering will not qualify to win and all entries will be deleted.

Prizes: ATTW4 will make an effort to describe all prizes and their approximate values to the best of their knowledge.  All prizes worth over $600 might require that winners supply sponsoring brands with their social security number for tax purposes.  Please note that ATTW4 will not collect that information (for security and legal purposes), and that it is the sole responsibility of the sponsoring brand to file the appropriate 1099 tax forms when needed.

How Winners are Chosen: Unless otherwise stated, winners will be chosen by random draw using Random.org or Rafflecopter, upon the individually stated official closing date of each giveaway.  Odds of winning vary upon the number of entries in each giveaway.

Winner Notification and the Claiming of Prizes: Winners will be notified via the email provided at time of entry and also published in the Winners section (found in the drop-down Giveaways menu on the Home Page).  The winner will have 48 hours to respond to the winning notification email or another winner will be chosen by random draw.

Prizes Not Received: ATTW4 will not be held responsible for winners not receiving their prizes.  However, we will make every attempt to assist winners in securing them.  It is the winner’s responsibility to make contact with a ATTW4 in a timely manner (within 30 days after the close of the giveaway) to report that a prize has not been received, or the prize may be void.
