The following policies govern the activities and events of the Romance Gems Blog.

Notifications to Winners

1. No winners’ names will be announced or published on Romance Gems Blog until said winners have been notified and entries verified as legitimate.

2. Entrants must leave an email address in order to enter. Be sure to enter the email correctly.

3. Using the email address the entrant entered, an official with Romance Gems Blog will make a good faith effort to contact all winners within 3 days of the giveaway closing whether it is a weekly giveaway or a monthly giveaway like a Rafflecopter.

4. Notice #1 is our first attempt to notify you of your good fortune. It is sent on or before Monday following the closing of the Giveaway. Entrants should check email and Spam filters for the notice. If you receive an email, please contact us promptly so we can verify your information and make arrangements to send you your prize.

5. Notice #2 is sent 2 days after the first notice, on a Wednesday, if we have not heard from you.

6. Notice #3 is your final notice and is sent 2 days after the second notice, on a Friday, if we still have not heard from you. This is your FINAL NOTICE in which we tell you that you have until noon, Saturday, the next day, to contact us to claim your prize.

7. At the deadline time and date—noon, Saturday—if we still have not heard from you, we will make another random draw and award the prize to someone else.

If you have any questions regarding these terms, please use the Contact Form on the blog to get in touch with us.

Awarding Physical Prizes

Due to the prohibitive cost of international mail, if a Winner is outside the Continental United States, Ebooks will be sent instead of "physical" prizes such as Tshirts, journals, coffee mugs, etc.

Awarding Amazon Gift Cards

Every effort will be made to send a Winner an Amazon Gift Card when called for. However, it may not be possible for us to send Amazon Gift Cards from the United States to some countries. In that event, an Ebook will be sent in lieu of the Amazon Gift Card.
