Disclaimer, Privacy Policy & Terms of Use

While the FBGs do have extensive experience working out and hold a fitness certification or two, they are by no means medical doctors and are not qualified to give individualized recommendations or guidelines regarding fitness, nutrition or life in general. So, use your common sense, and don’t get hurt doing anything silly. This site and our social media accounts are intended to motivate, to provide general fitness education and to encourage fitness fun!

Product Posts

As journalists, the FBGs value their integrity. While we often receive samples from manufacturers so that we can review their products, we are never paid for these articles (and we often give these freebies to you, the readers) unless explicitly disclosed and labeled as a sponsored post. And no sneakiness here: In the event that we review an advertiser’s product, we will disclose the relationship in our review. On the rare occasion that we do write a sponsored post, you can be certain that we stand behind the product or service featured 100 percent. Otherwise, we wouldn’t agree to promote it! Bottom line: readers always get our honest opinions, without influence by outside parties (although, for the record, we do love a good party).

Void in Quebec, Puerto Rico and where prohibited by law.

2.    SPONSOR:  The Giveaways are sponsored by Fit Bottomed World LLC or other specified company (“Sponsor”).

3.    AGREEMENT TO OFFICIAL RULES:  Participation in the Giveaway constitutes entrant’s full and unconditional agreement to and acceptance of these Official Rules and the decisions of the Sponsor, which are final and binding. Winning a prize is contingent upon fulfilling all requirements set forth herein.

4.    ENTRY PERIOD:  The start and end dates/times of each Giveaway (the “Entry Period”) will be posted on the applicable Giveaway.

5.    ENTRY:  To enter a Giveaway, follow the instructions on the Giveaway.  Submission will result in one (1) entry.  You may only enter a Giveaway once.  The use of any agencies or automated software to submit entries will void all entries submitted by that person.

6.    DRAWING:  At the conclusion of the Entry Period, FBG will select the name(s) of the potential winner(s) in a random drawing of all eligible entries received during the Entry Period (unless otherwise specified in the Giveaway).  The number of winners to be selected in a specific Giveaway will be posted on the applicable Giveaway site.  The odds of being selected as a potential winner depend on the number of eligible entries received during the Entry Period.  Potential winners will be contacted via email and will be asked to provide their full name and mailing address within a specified time period.  If a potential winner does not respond within the timeframe stated in the notification email, the Sponsor may select an alternate potential winner in his/her place at random from all entries received during the Entry Period.  Limit one (1) prize per household per Giveaway.

7.    REQUIREMENTS OF THE POTENTIAL WINNERS:  Except where prohibited, the potential winners may be required to complete and return an affidavit of eligibility and liability/publicity release (the “Affidavit/Release”) within seven (7) days of being notified.  If a potential winner fails to sign and return the Affidavit/Release within the required time period, an alternate entrant will be selected in his/her place in a random drawing of all entries received.  Acceptance of a prize constitutes consent to use winner’s name and likeness for editorial, advertising and publicity purposes without additional compensation, except where prohibited by law.

8.    PRIZE(S):  The prize(s) available to be won in a specific Giveaway will be posted on the Giveaway site.  No cash or other substitution may be made, except by the Sponsor, who reserves the right to substitute a prize with another prize of equal or greater value if the prize is not available for any reason as determined by the Sponsor in its sole discretion.  The winners are responsible for any taxes and fees associated with receipt or use of a prize.

9.    GENERAL CONDITIONS:  In the event that the operation, security, or administration of the Giveaway is impaired in any way for any reason, including, but not limited to fraud, virus, or other technical problem, the Sponsor may, in its sole discretion, either: (a) suspend the Giveaway to address the impairment and then resume the Giveaway in a manner that best conforms to the spirit of these Official Rules; or (b) award the prizes at random from among the eligible entries received up to the time of the impairment.  The Sponsor reserves the right in its sole discretion to disqualify any individual it finds to be tampering with the entry process or the operation of the Giveaway or to be acting in violation of these Official Rules or in an unsportsmanlike or disruptive manner.  Any attempt by any person to undermine the legitimate operation of the Giveaway may be a violation of criminal and civil law, and, should such an attempt be made, the Sponsor reserves the right to seek damages from any such person to the fullest extent permitted by law.  The Sponsor’s failure to enforce any term of these Official Rules shall not constitute a waiver of that provision.  In case of a dispute as to the owner of an entry, entry will be deemed to have been submitted by the authorized account holder of the screen name from which the entry is made.   The authorized account holder is defined as the natural person who is assigned to an e-mail address by an Internet access provider, online service provider, or other organization responsible for assigning e-mail addresses for the domain associated with the submitted e-mail address.

10.    RELEASE AND LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY:  By participating in the Giveaway, entrants agree to release and hold harmless the Giveaway Entities from and against any claim or cause of action arising out of participation in the Giveaway or receipt or use of any prize, including, but not limited to: (a) unauthorized human intervention in the Giveaway; (b) technical errors related to computers, servers, providers, or telephone or network lines; (c) printing errors; (d) lost, late, postage-due, misdirected, or undeliverable mail; (e) errors in the administration of the Giveaway or the processing of entries; or (f) injury or damage to persons or property which may be caused, directly or indirectly, in whole or in part, from entrant’s participation in the Giveaway or receipt of any prize.  Entrant further agrees that in any cause of action, the Giveaway Entities’ liability will be limited to the cost of entering and participating in the Giveaway, and in no event shall the Giveaway Entities be liable for attorney’s fees.  Entrant waives the right to claim any damages whatsoever, including, but not limited to, punitive, consequential, direct, or indirect damages.

11.    DISPUTES:  Except where prohibited, entrant agrees that any and all disputes, claims and causes of action arising out of, or connected with, the Giveaway or any prize awarded shall be resolved individually, without resort to any form of class action, and exclusively by the appropriate court located in the Commonwealth of Virginia.  All issues and questions concerning the construction, validity, interpretation and enforceability of these Official Rules, entrant’s rights and obligations, or the rights and obligations of the Sponsors in connection with the Giveaway, shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of the Commonwealth of Virginia, without giving effect to any choice of law or conflict of law rules (whether of the Commonwealth of Virginia or any other jurisdiction), which would cause the application of the laws of any jurisdiction other than the Commonwealth of Virginia.

12.    GIVEAWAY RESULTS:  To request the name of the winners, email contact@fitbottomedgirls.com.  Requests must be received within fifteen (15) days from the end date of the applicable Giveaway.
