TWITTER PARTY POLICY

On a less legalese note: Twitter can act odd during parties at times. What one person sees on their screen may be different than what someone else sees due to differences in twitter clients, api factors and other issues. We do our best. Twitter parties can be very chaotic and issues can and do arise. We will always do our best to make the best decisions we can given the information we have available. That being said, here is the official word(s):

Official Rules

NO PURCHASE OR MOBILE TWEETING IS NECESSARY TO ENTER OR WIN. A PURCHASE OR MOBILE TWEET WILL NOT INCREASE YOUR CHANCES OF WINNING. ELIGIBILITY: Promotion is open to legal residents of the fifty (50) United States and the District of Columbia, who are at least 13 years of age. Eligible minors should obtain the permission of their parents or legal guardians prior to participating. Employees of TravelingMom, LLC and their respective subsidiaries, affiliates, promotion and advertising agencies and members of their immediate family (spouse, parent, sibling or child and their respective spouses, regardless of where they reside) and persons living in the same household of such employees, whether or not related, are not eligible to enter or win unless otherwise designated. Void where prohibited by law. Promotion is subject to all applicable federal, state and local laws.

HOW TO ENTER: During the Promotion Period, you can become a follower of @Travelingmoms, @KimOrlando and @CindyRichards on Twitter where @TravelingMoms will send questions in the form of tweets to the Twitter community on behalf of the sponsor asking them to “tweet” answers via Twitter for the opportunity to win prizes (each, an “entry”). You can also follow #TMOM for most parties and join the party that way. Respond to tweets from @TravelingMoms including the hashtag to participate. All entries must be received during the party time to be eligible. If you choose to tweet using your mobile phone, standard text messaging and data fees for text messages sent and received may apply. See your wireless provider for pricing plan details. Entries generated by script, macro or other automated means and entries by any means which subvert the entry process are void. Multiple entries received from any person or Twitter handle in excess of the stated limitation will be void. A Twitter account is required to enter and can be opened for free at http://twitter.com. All entries become the sole property of the Sponsor and will not be returned.

WINNER DETERMINATION: Persons to tweet the correct answer to the posted question for the applicable question, when required, or who follow the directions as stated, will be eligible to win the corresponding prize for that question, subject to verification of eligibility and compliance with these Official Rules. Sponsor’s determination on correct answer received is final and binding. Sponsor reserves the right not to award a prize for any question if, in its sole discretion, it does not receive a correct answer from an eligible entrant for that question.

WINNER NOTIFICATION: Judges’ and Sponsor’s decisions are final and binding on all matters relating to this Promotion. The judges and Sponsor will monitor tweets to @TravelingMoms using the hashtag assigned for that party on Twitter and notify the potential winner for the applicable question via direct message. The potential winner then must direct message @DebMomof3 and/or @TravelingMoms their full name, date of birth, complete mailing address and e-mail address within a time period specified by Sponsor or prize will be forfeited and Sponsor will have no further obligation to such winner. Potential winners may be required to execute and return an affidavit of eligibility, a liability release and, where lawful, a publicity release within 30 days of date of issuance. If such documents are not returned within the specified time period, Sponsor is unable to contact a potential winner within a reasonable time period, prize or prize notification is returned as undeliverable, or a potential winner is not in compliance with these Official Rules, prize will be forfeited and, at Sponsor’s discretion, the runner-up for that question will be notified. If any potential winner is an eligible minor in his/her jurisdiction of residence, prize may be awarded in the name of his/her parent or legal guardian, and such parent or legal guardian will be required to fulfill all requirements imposed on winners set forth herein.
