Compensation does not affect my opinions in any way. I strive to provide honest feedback.

As the owner of the blog I do receive free products or services. I may accept financial compensation on posts which will be noted at the bottom of the post. Most products/books received are donated or given away after a review is completed.

I am not responsible for the actions of the giveaway sponsors.

I am in full compliance of the FTC rules concerning Bloggers. I disclose on all posts where a product was received for free and/or if there was any kind of financial compensation involved.

Older posts dated prior to August 15, 2009 do not have the individual disclaimers. None of the reviews, giveaways or posts were ever compensated for prior to that date and all products reviewed were either received free to do the review or were purchased on my own.

*** PRIZE/GIVEAWAY DISCLAIMER ***

When I offer prizes for giveaways on my blog She Scribes I do so on good faith that the sponsor will honor our arrangement and send the winner/winners their prize/prizes.

If for some reason you are a prize winner and you do not receive your prize in a reasonable amount of time please contact me directly at SheScribes@Optonline.net. I will contact the sponsor to try and find out about the status of your prize.

In the event the sponsor does not reply to my e-mails or fails to send the prize I am not to be held responsible or liable in any way. Failure to produce a prize falls souly on the sponsor. I cannot be held accountable for the actions of the sponsor.

Please note that sometimes prizes take a while to process and ship. Please allow for a reasonable amount of time to receive your prize. If you do not receive anything within 3 weeks please feel free to contact me. Prizes can take from 1-8 weeks to be shipped out, depending on the prize and the company. Please do not wait months to contact me about a prize not received because by then it could be too late.

All rules of the giveaway must be followed or entries will be voided. Failure to comply with the main entry requirement will null and void all extra entries.I have the right to remove entries if I feel they are in violation of any rules (Twitter and Facebook rules included) or considered SPAM. I also check all extra entry options to make sure they are legitimate and follow the rules.

Occasionally a sponsor might have rules set up as to how many wins a single person can have each month. If a sponsor does not want to award multiple prizes to a single winner during a specific time frame I have no control over that and is an issue the winner must take up with the sponsor. Sponsor has the right to refuse filling prize for duplicate winners from other blogs.

Any giveaways found on this site are no way sponsored, endorsed or administered by, or associated with, Facebook and Twitter.

Giveaways are open to U.S residents and occasionally Canadian residents, unless otherwise noted. You must be 18 years or older to enter.

Winners are chosen using Random.org. Winners are contacted via e-mail and have 72 hours to reply or a new winner will be chosen in their place. Please be sure to check your SPAM folder. I am not liable for e-mails that end up in your SPAM folder and are deleted by you.

When using the Twitter “tweeting” option you are allowed a maximum of three tweets per day. All others will be disqualified.

Please refer to Twitter’s rules on SPAM http://help.twitter.com/forums/26810/entries/68877.

Entering any giveaways on this site means that you have read and acknowledged all points in this disclaimer.
