The Baltimore Harbor Guide Giveaway(s) Official Rules:
Sponsor: The Sponsor of The Baltimore Harbor Guide Giveaways is Impact Associates, 841 East Fort Avenue, #289, Baltimore, Maryland 21230, USA, hereinafter referred to as “Sponsor”.
NO PURCHASE NECESSARY. A PURCHASE OR PAYMENT OF ANY KIND WILL NOT INCREASE YOUR CHANCES OF WINNING.
- Eligibility: Giveaways are open only to those who sign up at the appropriate online Giveaway page on The Baltimore Harbor Guide website only. No other companies, websites or entities are authorized to take any entries or award any prizes. Since there may be more than one Giveaway offered at the same time, you must sign up for each Giveaway individually. Because many of the Giveaways are for restaurants and bars which serve alcohol, you must be at least 21 years of age as of the date of your entry. (Under Maryland law you must be 21 years of age to consume alcohol.) The Giveaways are open to legal residents of the fifty (50) United States and the District of Columbia who are planning to visit Baltimore, Maryland within one year of winning the prize or within the time frame that the Giveaway prize won is valid. OR if you are planning to visit Baltimore, Maryland from outside of the United States of America, we do not mail or ship prizes outside the United States of America. Therefore, if you win and do not reside in the United States, you will have to pick up your prize at the Baltimore hotel in which you are staying when you come to Baltimore or at a mutually agreed upon location in Baltimore. (This must be within one year of winning a prize, or the prize will be null and void.) You must be planning to visit Baltimore because we want the prizes to be used. The Giveaways are subject to all local laws and regulations and are void where prohibited. Also void outside the USA where prohibited. It is your responsibility to know your local laws. Employees of Impact Associates (the “Sponsor”), their respective affiliates, subsidiaries, advertising and promotion agencies, suppliers and their immediate family members and/or those living in the same household of each are not eligible to participate in the Giveaways. Employees, owners, officers, and their immediate family members, of the business whose gift card, certificate or prize is being given away may not enter to win their company’s prize. However, they may enter to win any of the other prizes given away by The Baltimore Harbor Guide on this website. The Giveaways are subject to all applicable federal, state and local laws and regulations. Void where prohibited.

Winner of a Giveaway prize will receive the prize that they enter for and win. There will be no consolation prizes. If you do not win, you will not receive a prize. Sponsor reserves the right to give a substitute prize of equal value for any reason. (For example but not limited to, a $50 gift certificate to Restaurant A is won and Restaurant A goes out of business or changes ownership. Sponsor may at their sole discretion substitute a $50 gift certificate to another Baltimore area restaurant.) Actual/appraised value may differ at time of prize award. The specifics of the prizes shall be solely determined by the Sponsor. No cash or other prize substitution permitted except at Sponsor’s discretion. The prizes are non-transferable and may not be sold. For each prize won, the winner’s full name and address may be provided to the merchant who will be fulfilling the prize given by the Sponsor. For some prizes, if required by the merchant or the Sponsor, you may be required to show your identification at the time of redeeming the prize to prove that you are the winner. Any and all prize related expenses, including without limitation any and all federal, state and/or local taxes shall be the sole responsibility of the winner. No substitution of prize or transfer/assignment of prize to others or request for the cash equivalent by winners is permitted. Acceptance of prize constitutes permission for Sponsor to use winner’s name, town and state of residence, and entry to verify that the prize was awarded and also for purposes of advertising and trade without further compensation, unless prohibited by law.
