Bariatric Foodie blog contests are sponsored by either Bariatric Foodie or a partner company. By entering any Bariatric Foodie contest, you are accepting the terms of condition for entry into a Bariatric Foodie promotion, as set forth below.
Eligibility & Entry
All Bariatric Foodie contests, promotions and giveaways are open worldwide, however exclusions apply. Prize eligibility is contingent on country and local laws. If the physical prize awarded cannot be shipped to a winner’s country of origin, Bariatric Foodie will transfer the retail value of such prize to an Amazon gift card or the like. Bariatric Foodie giveaway prizes have no cash value and otherwise cannot be transferred. Please read individual giveaway or promotion eligibility rules carefully.
Except where indicated, each Bariatric Foodie promotion or giveaway will have unique entry options and qualifications. Please read those options and qualifications carefully and follow entry directions exactly to ensure your entry is valid.
Each Bariatric Foodie promotion or giveaway will have a start and end date which will be noted in the blog post announcing the giveaway. All valid entries made during that period are eligible for the prize associated with that giveaway. No entries will be accepted before the entry start date or after the entry end date.
Except where noted, winners will be chosen by random name generator (random.org/lists). In cases where more than one prize is offered, the list of entrants will be randomized three times to choose a winner. All announcements of winners will be made on Bariatric Foodie at least 48 hours following the end of the entry period (see PRIVACY for when/how winner’s information is shared).
In addition, once a winner of a Bariatric Foodie contest or promotion is chosen, Bariatric Foodie will attempt to notify the winner using any contact information provided in the contest entry (see PRIVACY for more information).
Prize Notification: Prize winners have 48 hours following the publishing of the Bariatric Foodie blog post announcing their name as the winner to claim their prize using the instructions in the blog post.
Inactive Forfeiture of Prizes: If the winner does not claim their prize in that period of time, they have inactively forfeited their prize and Bariatric Foodie reserves the right to redraw a name from the pool of eligible entrants. Redraws will be made by re-randomizing the eligible entry pool through the random list generator.
Active forfeiture of prizes: Prize winners may also actively forfeit their prize by notifying Bariatric Foodie within 48 hours of the prize winner announcement on Bariatric Foodie. If a winner inactively forfeits their prize they will be ineligible to win a prize from a Bariatric Foodie contest or promotion for a period of 30 days following the contest or promotion. If a winner actively forfeits their prize, they are immediately eligible to win future prizes as a result of Bariatric Foodie contests and promotions.
Bariatric Foodie contest and promotion prizes are non-transferrable.
Winners of Bariatric Foodie contests and promotions shall be ineligible to win additional prizes for a period of 30 days following their win.
Bariatric Foodie values your privacy. No contest entry that requires contact information will be mandatory in a Bariatric Foodie giveaway or promotion, however, such information may be required for that particular entry method to be considered valid.
By entering any Bariatric Foodie contest or promotion, you give your permission to use your name and/or contact information in the following ways:

up with you directly to arrange for the delivery of a prize.
- With the except of The Bariatric Foodie Pledge (see below), sponsoring companies do not have Bariatric Foodie’s permission to contact you following a contest or promotion without your expressed permission. In some cases, entry into a contest or giveaway constitutes permission for the sponsoring company to contact you via email. In such cases, this provision will be explicitly stated in the contest entry information for that particular giveaway. In such cases, you may unsubscribe from sponsor communications at any time and this will not affect your status in that or any future prize drawings.

Winners will receive a confirmation of shipment of their prize, if arriving by carrier, by either Bariatric Foodie or the prize sponsoring company. If prize winners do not receive their prize within the time outlined in the confirmation, they should contact Bariatric Foodie at email@example.com.
Bariatric Foodie often requests that prize winners provide a picture of the prize and, if comfortable, the winner with their prize. This is not mandatory nor does it have any bearing on future prize eligibility. By providing photos or testimonials related to a Bariatric Foodie contest or promotion prize, winners give Bariatric Foodie permission to share that information via social media including, but not limited to, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and the Bariatric Foodie blog.
