To provide fair and equal chance of winning any Fresh Fiction-sponsored contest on our site or in our daily emails, we provide these official rules. Please review these rules before entering any Fresh Fiction contest. Where there is a discrepancy between the official rules below and any contest details provided with a specific contest, the specific contest rules apply. If you have questions, write to email@example.com for assistance. NO PURCHASE NECESSARY TO PARTICIPATE OR WIN. PURCHASE WILL NOT IMPROVE YOUR CHANCES OF WINNING. All winners must be 18 years of age or older, unless otherwise stated and/or posted.
How to participate in a contest: Winners of contests will be chosen at random from the entries received via the contest page at Fresh Fiction. Only one entry per email address used to send the email will be considered for contest entry, unless multiple entries are specifically allowed in the contest description. Unless otherwise specified in an individual contest description, no person may enter any contest more than once using multiple email addresses. Fresh Fiction is not responsible for and will not consider as potential contest winners any incomplete or incorrect entries. Forms sent but not received by Fresh Fiction (for any reason) are also not eligible to win.
How we choose winners: Winners are chosen at random from all entries received by the contest closing date specified in the contest description. All closing dates and times are described in Eastern Standard Time (EST) unless otherwise noted in the contest description.
How we contact winners: Fresh Fiction will email any winners of contest or contests a "winner confirmation email" to the "sender" email address used to enter the contest, and the person receiving and replying to the winner notification email will be considered the winner unless that person specifies another person as the winner. Fresh Fiction or designate will mail the contest prize to the address supplied by the recipient of the winner announcement email. The winner must claim the prize by email response to the winner notification email within 20 days of the date Fresh Fiction sent the winner notification email. Failure to respond shall mean that the winner forfeits the prize. Fresh Fiction is not required to award elsewhere any prizes forfeited by the chosen winner(s).
Each prizewinner must supply Fresh Fiction with his/her legal name and mailing address.
Winners may not request substitutions of prize winnings. All winners are solely responsible for any and all taxes and/or fees, and all such additional costs that may be incurred.
Neither Fresh Fiction, Fresh Fiction sponsors, nor employees of Fresh Fiction or individual sponsors may be held liable for any warranty, costs, damage, injury, or any other claims incurred as a result of usage of any winners of a prize once winner has taken possession of the product. Fresh Fiction is not liable for any loss arising out of or in connection with or resulting from any contest promoted by Fresh Fiction.
If the specified prize becomes unavailable due to unforeseen circumstances, Fresh Fiction may substitute a prize of like or equal value.
Management, employees and families of Fresh Fiction are prohibited from winning any prizes awarded by Fresh Fiction.
