Contest Disclaimer

Legal Disclaimer:

VeggieGardener.com, its staff and its owners reserve sole and final judgment as to all matters concerning contests and interpretation of contest rules. By entering any contest on VeggieGardener.com, you agree to abide by the following terms.

Eligibility. No purchase is necessary to enter our contests. Winners under the age of 18 (as of win announcement) must have their parents’ and/or legal guardians’ consent to accept prizes. You should keep your email address current — if we cannot reach you by email, you forfeit your winner’s status. Contests are open to anyone in the United States except employees of VeggieGardener.com and the families of those employees, as well as any employees of sponsors (if any) and the families of those employees.

Contest Deadlines. All deadlines are listed in the contest and are subject to change

Winner Selection and Notification. The decisions made by VeggieGardener.com regarding each contest are final and binding. The odds of winning vary from contest to contest due to the number of entrants and the quality of entries. We will contact winners by email – and only by email to confirm winnings. (we will use the email address you used when registering in the forum)

Winner Disqualification. If an email returns undeliverable or if, for any other reason, a winner cannot be reached after a reasonable amount of effort has been made to notify the winner of the prize, the winner forfeits all rights to the prize. If a winner does not get in touch with the prize sponsors within 14 days of winning, the winner forfeits the prize.

General Conditions. Contest void where prohibited, regulated or restricted by law in a manner inconsistent with the purposes and rules hereof. Entries deemed irrelevant, potentially libelous or inflammatory will not be posted or will be removed from posting. All taxes on any prize won are the sole responsibility of the winner. All prizes will be mailed to United States participants free of charge. We reserve the right to cancel a contest at any time, to modify contest rules at any given time, and to substitute a prize or prizes as we deem suitable in the event that prize is unavailable for any reason whatsoever.

Contestant Assignment and Releases. Entry into contest constitutes explicit permission for VeggieGardener.com and its affiliates to use the winner’s name, city, state and entry photos for exhibition, distribution and promotion without restriction or compensation. Contestant unconditionally releases VeggieGardener.com and its affiliates from any liability in respect of the publication of submissions, and the value and use of prizes.

Limitation of Liability. By participating in a contest, you agree to release and hold VeggieGardener.com, its owners, its staff, its affiliates, its advertisers and any prize donors harmless from any losses, damages, rights, claims and actions of any kind in connection with or resulting from (a) participation in any contest and/or acceptance, possession, or use of any prize (including personal injuries, death, property damages and any claims by third parties or otherwise based on publicity rights, defamation, or invasion of privacy) and (b) any technical or human errors, malfunctions, failures, etc. relating to participation in any contest.
