At Emily’s Reading Room, we have some fun and exciting giveaways. When holding giveaways, your information is always kept private. I will never sell or give away your private information to anyone.
I can not guard against people taking information from the comments section of this blog. So, if you post your email address in the comments, I can’t prevent someone from taking it and then selling it.
Emily’s Reading Room is not directed to children under the age of 13. I do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from, anyone under 13.
Note to Parents. If you have any concerns about Emily’s Reading Room or your child has provided us with personally identifiable information, please contact me. I also urge parents to instruct their children never to give out their real names, addresses or phone numbers without parental permission when using the Internet.
If you win a contest on the site, I will request a physical address to which I send the prize. If you are under 13, your parent will have to confirm and provide the address. (I have no way of confirming your age, so I am expecting everyone to be honest, please.) No one’s address will be shared or distributed in any way, not rented or sold, nor is it kept on file.
All contests winners are announced on the blog. None of your personal information will be posted in the contest announcement, beyond your first name and last initial. If you have any discrepancies with this arrangement, please specify so in the contest entry form.
Unless otherwise specified, I do not ship outside the United States. However, if you live outside the US and either want to pay the extra for shipping, or have a US shipping address, I can make arrangements to do so.
Many of my contests are hosted by myself, which means I ship them out myself. This is costly. I try to have all my prizes shipped out within 8 weeks of winning. Usually they are shipped out within 1-2 weeks, but when you’ve got a baby and a husband in school, sometimes funds are tight. Once your prize is shipped, I will provide you with a Delivery Confirmation number and will email you on the date that it is sent out. I can not be held responsible for items that are lost in the mail.
Giveaway Eligibility and Deadlines
I can disqualify entries as I see fit. This will usually happen if I get 5 of the same entry from one person, or if it is apparent that one person is entering under multiple pseudonyms.
I may end a contest early or extend a deadline without prior notice.
