The MiniDisc Giveaway format:
- I will post a specific MiniDisc Giveaway video on YouTube
- In the YouTube video, the video's description, Instagram, and this blog, you'll see a link or an embedded Rafflecopter entry form. I will be using that to collect and choose a winner.
- At the [end of auction]* I will screenshot/record all comments and put all usernames into a list
- ChatGPT/Google Bard/CommentPicker/Rafflecopter or some other tool will randomly choose a winner from the list
- I will contact the winner by emailing them based on the entry info (so check your notifications!) and we'll verify you and your shipping information
- If I can't communicate with the chosen winner within 72 hours, I will choose another one randomly
- repeat previous step if needed
- I will ship out the package to the winner
- Winner is in charge of any local customs or duties
* [end of auction] will be stated in the YouTube video and will be listed in US Pacific time, currently GMT -8
I need to create this as a reference for my video which will describe the giveaway. I want this to be as simple as possible, but I need to make sure I'm complying with all local and international rules!
- This giveway is just for me to share my love for MiniDiscs with other MiniDisc-loving people!
- This giveaway is not associated/affiliated with Google nor YouTube. I, the owner of this site and YouTube channel, want to spread the love of MiniDiscs. =)
- This is a FREE giveaway that will run for a set amount of time (start and end date will be in the video and in the video's description).
- When the giveaway ends, I will randomly (using an app or ChatGPT/Bard) choose one of the commenters on that specific giveaway video.
- I will then attempt to contact that commenter to obtain shipping information and send the MiniDisc device as a "gift". See Privacy Notice below
- International winners outside of the USA will have to take care of any customs or duties, if needed.
- These devices are about 20 years old and no warranty is given, nor implied. They will be tested and working before shipping, but unfortunately, I can't be responsible after it ships.
- I must adhere to YouTube community guidelines and any comments that don't comply will not be accepted as entries
Reference YouTube's policies here:
- Any personal information collected for the giveaway will not be used or displayed on blog posts nor videos.
- I can (and would like to) announce your first name and Country of residence, if acceptable. I will ask the winner when chosen.
- Any information collected for the giveaway will not be stored by me (shipping address, real name, etc.) after shipping.
