Romance: B(u)y The Book, LLC. may elect from time to time to hold regular online sweepstakes (each, a "Sweepstakes") on its website - www.romancebytheblog.blogspot.com (the "Website"). In each such Sweepstakes, a random drawing is conducted to select prize winners from among all eligible entries received. The available prizes and the number of possible prize winners will be set out on the Website. Entry into one Sweepstakes does not constitute entry into any other promotion, contest or sweepstakes. In addition, if a promotion on the Website has a set of rules that apply specifically to that promotion, the terms of those specific rules (as opposed to these general Official Rules) will govern that specific promotion.
By participating in any of the Sweepstakes that are offered, each entrant unconditionally accepts and agrees to comply with and abide by these Official Rules and the decisions of RBTB, [ 3 Golf Center; PO Box 298; Hoffman Estates, IL 60195] ("Sponsor"), which shall be final and binding in all respects. SWEEPSTAKES ARE VOID WHERE PROHIBITED.

HOW TO ENTER: Submit a post on the Website and you will automatically be entered. Entries will be accepted between those days and times listed on the Website. All entries must be received before the applicable entry deadline in order to participate. You can post as often as you'd like and a winner will be selected at random amongst posters to the Website. The Website's database clock will be the official time keeper for each Sweepstakes.
NOTE: Internet entry must be made by the entrant, only at the Website. Entries made by any other individual or any entity, and/or originating at any other web site or e-mail address, including but not limited to commercial sweepstakes subscription notification and/or entering service sites, will be declared invalid and disqualified. The use of any device to automate the entry process is prohibited.
WINNER NOTIFICATION: The winner(s) of each Sweepstakes will be randomly selected from all eligible entries (blog posters) received before the applicable entry deadline. The potential winner(s) will be notified using the e-mail address which is used by that member when they register as a member of the Website . The notification email will ask the winner or the winner's parent or legal guardian to provide any additional information so that Sponsor can send the prize to the winner. Sponsor shall have no liability for any winner notification that is lost, intercepted or not received by the potential winner for any reason. If a potential winner does not respond within 72 hours of the first notification attempt, or if the prize or prize notification is returned as unclaimed or undeliverable to such potential winner, such potential winner will forfeit his or her prize and an alternate winner may be selected. If any potential winner is found to be ineligible, or if he or she has not complied with these Official Rules or declines a prize for any reason prior to award, such potential winner will be disqualified and an alternate winner may be selected.
In the event of a dispute as to the identity of the entrant, any online entry will be deemed submitted by the authorized account holder of the e-mail account from which it was sent, provided such account holder must still meet the eligibility requirements for the Sweepstakes. The authorized account holder shall be the natural person to whom the applicable email address has been assigned by the Internet access provider, service provider, or other online organization responsible for assigning e-mail addresses for the domain associated with the submitted e-mail address. A potential winner may be requested to provide the Sponsor with proof that the potential winner is the authorized account holder of the e-mail address associated with the winning entry. If a dispute cannot be resolved, the affected entry will be deemed ineligible.

No cash alternative or substitution of prizes will be allowed, except Sponsor reserves the right in its sole discretion to substitute prize(s) of comparable value if any prize is unavailable, in whole or in part, for any reason. Odds of winning a Sweepstakes depend on the number of eligible entries received for that Sweepstakes.
