By leaving a comment, performing entries, or participating in any other way to enter in any giveaway that MeasuringFlower.com holds, you are agreeing to the following terms. These terms are effective beginning 11 November 2010.
- Any item being given away based on chance (i.e. random selection) on MeasuringFlower.com is a sweepstakes; however, for clarity to others, they will be entitled and referred to as “giveaways.”

- TJ, Tiffany, and MeasuringFlower.com are not official representative(s) of the companies for which the giveaways come from.
- Winner cannot return a giveaway to TJ, Tiffany, or to MeasuringFlower.com. If winner has any issues with their prize (including damage or no delivery), they may contact the company that sponsored the giveaway as they deem necessary.
- Most giveaways are run utilizing Rafflecopter forms.
- All winners in a giveaway are selected using Random.org (usually through Rafflecopter) unless otherwise noted.
- Odds of winning any MeasuringFlower.com giveaway are based on number of entries.
- In abidance with law, giveaways run solely by MeasuringFlower.com are open only to United States residents 18 years or older.

- All giveaway items coming from TJ’s or Tiffany’s home will be mailed as soon as possible after receiving the winner’s address. For these and sponsored giveaways, please allow up to 6 weeks for your prize to arrive.
- Once a giveaway is over, winner will be contacted via email to obtain the best possible address (and possibly phone number) to mail their prize. Entrants should regularly check their spam in case the email was sent there. The email will be coming from the MeasuringFlower.com domain.

Filling in their email address in the email field (either on the Rafflecopter form or the email field in the comment section) does not publicly display the email address; filling it in the actual comment field does.

- Winner’s name, mailing address, phone number (where applicable), and email will be passed on to the sponsor of the giveaway so they can mail their prize. Since only trusted companies are selected to sponsor giveaways, the winner’s information should be kept safe.
