Hottest TrendSetters Official Rules
NO PURCHASE NECESSARY TO ENTER OR WIN. PURCHASE OR PAYMENT OF ANY KIND WILL NOT INCREASE YOUR CHANCES OF WINNING. VOID WHERE PROHIBITED OR RESTRICTED BY LAW.
THIS GIVEAWAY IS INTENDED FOR VIEWING IN THE UNITED STATES ONLY AND SHALL ONLY BE CONSTRUED AND EVALUATED ACCORDING TO UNITED STATES LAW.
(“Promotion Period” will be listed in each different promotion, as all sponsors have different time frames for their review/giveaways. Participation in this Giveaway constitutes entrant’s full and unconditional agreement to these Official Rules, and Sponsor’s decisions, which are final and binding in all matters related to the Giveaway. These Giveaways are sponsored by said sponsor of each giveaway post, located within each giveaway rules and disclosure, (“Sponsor”) who is solely responsible for all aspects of this Giveaway. I regulate entries and do not ship prizes to winners, unless stated otherwise.
In the event the prize does not show up, I will contact the company, representing you, but I cannot and will not be held responsible if the prize isn't delivered. By entering the giveaways on Hottest TrendSetter you are releasing me from liability from harm, damage or injury of prize, responsibility of shipment and responsibility for lost prizes. Hottest TrendSetter Blog/Blog Owner is also not responsible for giveaways, contests, reviews, or any content on any other blog or website.
I will expedite communication between the sponsor and the winner to the best of my abilities.
This Giveaway is open to legal residents of the fifty (50) United States and the District of Columbia, who are at least eighteen (18) years old as of December 9, 2011. Employees, officers and representatives of Sponsor, and members of the immediate family (mother, father, brothers, sisters, sons, daughters and spouse, regardless of where they reside) and household members of each such employee, whether or not related, are not eligible to participate. Winning a prize is contingent upon fulfilling all requirements set forth herein. This Giveaway is Void in Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, U.S. Military installations in foreign countries, and where prohibited or restricted by law.
Since recently learning of Canada's restrictions of turning giveaways into skill contests in which entrants must answer a skill question, the residents of Canada are no longer eligible to win any giveaways written AFTER this date Dec 9th, 2011 on Hottest TrendSetter, or any other country as well, unless otherwise stated. I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
HOW TO ENTER

The Giveaway may require commenting on the active giveaway post with the mandatory entries listed on the particular Giveaway post. You may also receive extra entry options for social networks "likes", "follows" and "subscribes". Number of entries are limited to each giveaway as they each may have different entry tasks. One mandatory entry will always require (and may sometimes be the only required entry) you to leave your name, email and a Facebook follower of Hottest TrendSetter.
Failure to complete mandatory entries of Giveaway will deem you ineligible. Failure to provide information that allows me to confirm your entries will also deem you ineligible. I reserve the right to refuse your entry if the entry is non-verifiable or incomplete.

Upon winning, you must reply to the confirmation email in the allotted time given, which is within 24 hours unless otherwise stated. Confirmation email will require you to provide a full name, mailing address, phone number and email address, unless otherwise stated in the confirmation email.
Failure to reply/confirm in the allotted time given, or failure to provide required information, will result in a forfeiture of win. Another winner will then be selected and allotted the same amount of time given to reply/confirm.
Blog Owner also reserves the right to disqualify or refuse persons an entry into the contest when said Blog or Blog Owner/Writer has been violated; which includes, but is certainly not limited to, theft of personal or blog content (posts, articles, pictures, reviews, contests, etc...) abuse/misuse, tampering, defamation, slandering, threatening or harassment.
