Giveaway Rules and Disclosure Policy

Giveaway Rules

1.  Giveaways are open to Canadian and American residents over 18 years of age unless otherwise stated.  You may enter giveaways that are open for countries that you do not live in, provided that if you win, you will have the giveaway prize sent to a friend or family member residing in that country.  Please ensure that you have that person's permission to give their contact information and that they are willing to receive the giveaway prize.  (see #8)

2.  Participants must follow the instructions provided for each giveaway by visiting the sponsor's site and leaving a relevant comment.  Comments that fail to follow the instructions (ie: comments that state only "count me in" or "I'd love to win") will be considered void and deleted.  Comments that are clearly copied from someone else will be considered void and deleted.  Please play fair by visiting the sponsor's site yourself and coming up with your own relevant comments.

3.  Please leave your e-mail address in this format:  sowingdandelionseeds(at)yahoo(dot)ca  if it is not public in your profile.  If I have no way to contact you, you will not be able to win!

4.  There is only one set of entries per household allowed so do not enter multiple times via multiple e-mail addresses.

5.  The winner will be selected randomly.  The winner will be contacted by e-mail and the winner will also be posted on Sowing Dandelion Seeds.  I will make at least two attempts to contact the winner.  Once the winner has contacted me I will e-mail you back to confirm that I have received your e-mail.  If you see on the blog that you have won a prize, but have not received my e-mail for whatever reason, feel free to e-mail me to clarify.

6.  Winners will have 72 hours to claim their prize.  If the winner does not get back to me within 72 hours, a new winner will be chosen and the original winner will lose all rights to the giveaway prize.  Sowing Dandelion Seeds will not be held responsible for e-mails that are lost or end up in a junk folder.

7.  Any contact information submitted to me will never be sold to third parties.  The contact information will only be given to the sponsor of the giveaway for shipping purposes.

8.  Giveaway participants are expected to know and abide by the customs regulations for shipping to their country.  Sowing Dandelion Seeds will not be responsible for any duty or brokerage fees that may be incurred through receiving the giveaway prize.

9.  Unless otherwise stated, it is the sponsor's responsibility to send the winner the giveaway prize.  However, if you have not received the giveaway item within 8-10 weeks, please contact me and I will look into it for you.

10.  If you have any questions or concerns, don't hesitate to contact me at
Thanks for entering the giveaways!
