Once you’ve stopped accepting entries on a campaign, there are a few items to wrap-up before you can officially close the book on your successful giveaway. One of the biggest to-dos is selecting a winner and then sending the prize to the winner. After you’ve selected a winner, you’ll need to make sure you send them whatever prize was promised in the giveaway. It is really important that you complete this properly, in order to protect your brand from any legal issues.
Having your giveaway winner return a signed and notarized affidavit can protect your brand from fraud and other damaging legal issues. It is considered legal best practice to have the winner sign the two legal documents below before actually receiving the prize. You must always make sure that the winner also submits a copy of a legal U.S ID, like a driver’s license or passport.
Affidavit of Eligibility and Release of Liability
This document affirms that the prize winner has read and understood the Official Rules of the giveaway campaign. It also assures that the sponsor brand is free of any liability after transferring the prize.
Release and Waiver of Liability
This legal document allows the sponsoring brand to use the likeness of the prize winner as a marketing tool. It also releases the sponsoring brand from any liability that could possibly be associated with transferring a prize to the winner.
