Official Candles Off Main Giveaway Rules
Rule #1: If you're cool, we're cool and there's no need to read. But, if the *blank* hits the fan, here's our backup plan:
NO PURCHASE IS NECESSARY TO ENTER OR WIN THOUGH WE WOULD LOVE FOR YOU TO BUY SOMETHING! WE'RE ALWAYS A FAN OF THAT. OFFICIALLY, A PURCHASE WILL NOT INCREASE YOUR CHANCES OF WINNING, IT WILL JUST MAKE US LIKE YOU A WHOLE LOT MORE. ALL FEDERAL, STATE, LOCAL AND MUNICIPAL LAWS AND REGULATIONS APPLY. VOID IN RHODE ISLAND (THE NO-FUN STATE) AND WHERE PROHIBITED BY LAW.
This giveaway is open to legal residents of the Continental United States (excepting Rhode Island, boo) and the District of Columbia who are at least eighteen (21) years old at the time of entry. Employees of Candles Off Main and other companies associated with the promotion of the giveaway, and their respective parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, and advertising and promotion agencies, as well as the immediate family (spouse, parents, siblings, furry pets and children) and household members (that means you - cousin Joey living in the basement) of each such employee, are not eligible. Here's the important part: The prize packs will be mailed via UPS to any CONTINENTAL UNITED STATES address.
The giveaway is sponsored by Candles Off Main, located at 2017 Renard Court, Annapolis, MD 21401.
3. Agreement to Official Rules
Entry in the giveaway constitutes entrant's full and unconditional agreement to and acceptance of those Official Rules and the decisions of the Sponsor, which are final and binding. Winning a prize is contingent upon being compliant with these Official Rules and fulfilling all other requirements set forth herein, wheretofor, whereartnow, whereswaldo and/or required by applicable law.
4. Giveaway Period
The giveaway begins on the date and time specified in the specific giveaway (go back from where you came from and look it up, we can't re-write this each time). Entries that are submitted before or after the giveaway will be disqualified, sorry. Submissions will be accepted for the duration of the giveaway.
5. How to Enter
Go to our Facebook page can find the Enter to Win tab. It should be here if I did my tech stuff right: www.facebook.com/CandlesOffMain/app_143103275748075
By entering the giveaway, you understand that you will be automatically subscribed to our mailing list (yay!), and may (will) receive communications from us from time to time in the future, and you expressly consent to agree to such subscription and communications.
6.Prize Drawing; Odds of Winning
After the giveaway ends, we'll select the potential winner(s) in a random drawing (how exciting!) from among all eligible entries received. The odds of being selected depend on the total number of eligible entries.
The potential winners will be notified by email. We'll attempt to notify each potential winner via email within 24 hours after the giveaway ends. If any potential winner does not respond within five (5) business days after the date of the first attempt to contact him/her, or is disqualified for any reason, we may select an alternate potential winner in his/her place at random from the remaining non-winning, eligible entries. If you win (*fingers crossed*), after you receive and try the products we'd love for you to post something fabulous on our Facebook wall at http://www.facebook.com/CandlesOffMain. That's the funnest part. Sponsor will take reasonable steps to ensure that all prizes are fulfilled within approximately fifteen (15) calendar days after the conclusion of the giveaway.
Each prize pack contains whatever it said on the giveaway page (go back to where you came from and read the description). While you're there, also checkout the value of the prize and how many winners we'll select because you probably want to know that too.
Let's just hope everything goes smoothly and everyone plays nice. If not, here's a bunch of ugly situations:
In the event that the operation, security, or administration of the giveaway is impaired in any way for any reason, including, but not limited to fraud, virus, bug, worm, unauthorized human intervention or other technical problem, or in the even the giveaway is unable to run as planned for any other reason, as determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion, the Sponsor may, in its sole discretion, either (a) suspend the giveaway to address the impairment and then resume the giveaway in a manner that best conforms to the spirit of these Official Rules or (b) terminate the giveaway and, in the event of termination, award the prize at random from among the eligible, non-suspect entries received up to the time of the impairment. The Sponsor reserves the right in its sole discretion to disqualify any individual it finds to be tampering with the entry process or the operation of the giveaway or to be acting in violation of these Official Rules or in an unsportsmanlike or disruptive manner. This reserved right is in addition to, and not in lieu of, any other rights and remedies available to Sponsor either in equity or at law. Any attempt by any person to damage the website or undermine the legitimate operation of the giveaway may be a violation of criminal and civil law, and should such an attempt be made, the Sponsor reserves the right to seek damages (including attorney fees) and any other remedies from such person to the fullest extent permitted by law. Failure by the Sponsor to enforce any provision of these Official Rules shall not constitute a waiver of that provision. Let's just hope none of this happens and we can go back to smelling flowers.
10.RELEASE AND LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY
Ok, honestly, I don't know what any of this means or how/why it would happen, but since it's in ALL CAPS, I'm going to leave it in here should the situation arrives and I have to get a lawyer I don't need him/her screaming at me for not keeping it in.

14. Damages and Loss
Each prize pack will be packed with care and shipped via UPS or the fabulous yet expensive and inefficient US Postal System to any Continental US address.

If you don't like the products or fragrances of anything you win - regift.
