Limit one entry per person and household per Giveaway. Prize(s) will be fulfilled by the Sponsor. Prize(s) will either be delivered by BookGems.com or one of its affiliates or by the Sponsor using the shipping address you select for the Giveaway. Each winner will be responsible for paying any taxes and any other expenses incurred, including any income taxes, sales or use taxes, value added taxes, goods and services taxes, Quebec sales taxes, or harmonized sales taxes. Throughout the term of this Giveaway, you will provide Book Gems with any forms, documents, or certifications as may be required for Book Gems to satisfy any information reporting or withholding tax obligations with respect to any payments related to this Giveaway.
Each prize will be awarded “as is” and without warranty of any kind, express or implied (including, without limitation, any implied warranty of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose). If you win a prize, you may not transfer, assign, or redeem the prize for cash. The Sponsor or Book Gems may substitute a prize with a prize of equal or greater value.

If any errors occur in the selection of a potential winner, or if more prizes are claimed than specified, Sponsor or Book Gems may award the prize(s) by random drawing from among all eligible claimants.
