by Snippet & Ink from emails received. The manner chosen by Snippet & Ink is at Snippet & Ink’s sole discretion.

Entrants must send entries using the correct contest entry email address,
subject line, and any other specific entry information requested in the contest

Entrants may also mail entries to Snippet & Ink, Attn: Contests, P.O. Box 651, Larkspur, CA, 94977. Mailed entries must include the contest name, subject line, a valid
email and postal address, and any other specific entry information requested in
the contest announcement and are subject to the same entry period and rules as
emailed entries.

Snippet & Ink is not responsible for and will not consider incomplete or
incorrect entries, or emails sent or entries mailed, but not received by Snippet & Ink for any reason, as potential contest winners.

Winners of all contests will be contacted at the “sender” email used to enter the
contest, and the person receiving and replying to the winner announcement
email will be considered the winner unless they specify another person within
the reply email as the winner. Snippet & Ink will mail the contest prize to the
address supplied by the recipient of the winner announcement email.

Only one entry per email address used to send the email or per postal address,
if entry is mailed, will be considered for contest entry, unless multiple entries
are specifically allowed in the contest posting. Unless otherwise specified in an
individual contest post, no person may enter any contest more than once using
multiple email addresses or postal addresses.

Claiming of prizes requires an email to Snippet & Ink from the winning
sender email address within 15 days of being notified of winning at the email
used to enter. Failure to respond shall mean that the winner forfeits the prize.
