GIVEAWAY TERMS AND CONDITIONS
Before you enter a giveaway on Fairfax Family Fun, be sure you read, understand, and agree to the terms specified below.
GENERAL INFORMATION: Occasionally Fairfax Family Fun will host a “giveaway” on its website with one or more prizes. These giveaways are run solely at the discretion of Fairfax Family Fun. Giveaway entries are always free but require complying with the terms and conditions set forth for each prize. When you enter a giveaway, you agree to abide by all the terms and conditions set forth here.
Fairfax Family Fun often provides items such as tickets to live shows, plays, musical concerts, and festivals, as well as goods including toys, household items, or other gifts. These items are provided at the discretion of the giveaway sponsor and/or Fairfax Family Fun. In return for the time and effort it takes to conduct these giveaways (and the promotion resulting for the sponsor) usually Fairfax Family Fun receives an equal prize of at least the same value, or in some cases financial compensation. Fairfax Family Fun readers understand that any giveaway is a marketing promotion. Fairfax Family Fun makes no guarantees of any product or prize nor can we provide additional prizes or substitutes if an announced prize turns out to be not to your liking. For any giveaway, Fairfax Family Fun and/or the sponsor or prize donor reserve the right to substitute the advertised prize with another one for any reason.
WINNER SELECTION AND NOTIFICATION:
Winners are randomly selected, often through Rafflecopter or a random number generator (both random.org applications), a similar third-party application, or (less commonly) simply “drawing a number out of a hat” (strips of paper with each entrant name or comment number). Winners are then notified using the email address they provided when entering the giveaway. All giveaway entrants must provide a valid email they check frequently to receive prompt notification, if selected as the winner, to avoid possible forfeiture (winner could be disqualified if he/she does not acknowledge the prize within 48 hours of award notice).
All giveaway entrants must be at least 18 years old and reside in Virginia. Giveaway winners agree to comply with any applicable laws.
REDEMPTION OF PRIZES:
For prizes that are redeemed directly from the sponsor, the giveaway winner is responsible for claiming the prize (Fairfax Family Fun will notify the sponsor of the winner’s name). For prizes that Fairfax Family Fun will ship directly, shipment will be via regular U.S. Postal Service mail. Fairfax Family Fun is not responsible for lost, mis-delivered, or damaged items.
Usually a winner will be congratulated on Facebook (with the official prize notification going through email). For giveaways that are announced or promoted on Facebook, please note that these promotions are in no way sponsored, endorsed or administered by, or associated with, Facebook. Giveaway entrants or participants complete release Facebook of any claims.

WEBSITE UPTIME: Fairfax Family Fun makes strong efforts to remain “live” on the Internet continuously. However, occasional outages, crashes, storms, and Acts of God may affect uptime.
