Rules and Disclaimer

Disclaimer: This is for both of my blogs, Byhandgiveaways and Tagsandbuttons

This blog is in no way affiliated with Etsy or any other venue. I am not compensated with items or anything for this blog or the features. The only thing I get is whatever is earned from ad spaces, and that revenue goes right back into running and advertising this blog so that it can grow. The compensation I get is how happy I feel knowing that I am helping people in the handmade community :)

For listed giveaways:

Pictures shown on each individual giveaway listed on By Hand Giveaways do not belong to me. If you prefer to have your picture and/or giveaway unlisted, please send an email to byhandgiveaways [at] yahoo [.] com

It is free to list a giveaway, I have not accepted anything of monetary value for posting a giveaway unless otherwise noted. The only thing I receive is anything paid to run advertisements. I am merely collecting and posting things that others send in so that the reader of this blog can find handmade giveways.

Further rules for giveaways HOSTED on By Hand Giveaways (Formerly HMgiveaways)

For sponsored giveaways:

Prize winners will be notified via e-mail address provided. Winners must respond within 48 hours of being notified with their valid shipping address. If not, the prize will be forfeit and a new winner will be chosen. Winner must be a US resident, age 18+.

Winner will be chosen using random.org to generate a random number from the amount of entries received. The random number generated corresponds to a comment number and whoever holds that number will win.

Comments found to be fraudulent entries will be removed without notice permanently.

Odds of winning depend on the number of eligible entries received.

Prize winners are responsible for all federal, state and local taxes.

By accepting a prize, all winners agree that the By Hand Giveaways may post his/her name on the Winners page and in any and all media, including future advertising or publicity, without further consideration or compensation, unless prohibited by law.

By accepting a prize, all winners agree that the By Hand Giveaways will be held harmless by winner for any liability for any injury, loss or damages of any kind, to winner or other persons, including (without limitation) injuries, loss or damages arising out of or relating to death, and, injuries, damages or losses to property, due in whole or in part, directly or indirectly, from the acceptance, possession, use or misuse of the prize or participation in this promotion.

By Hand Giveaways is not responsible for shipping the prize(s) to the winner. Sponsor is responsible for shipping the prize(s). Sponsor is not responsible if prize is damaged or lost in mail transit.

If the giveaway that being featured is a personal giveaway for my shop, Tagsandbuttons, then I am responsible for shipping that prize. But, only the personal giveaways I am responsible for.

Winner will need to agree to the above rules in order to accept any prizes, and agree that the decisions of the judge are final. Leaving a comment to enter for a prize is stating that you agree to these rules.

I have not accepted any monetary value for hosting giveaways, unless otherwise noted on specific sponsored giveaway. This is a free service.
