Contests & Sweepstakes - Staying Legal With PerkZilla
There are many different laws and regulations related to the running of giveaways (sweepstakes) and contests depending on where you live, where your business operates and the type of contest or giveaway you plan to hold. Different countries and even different states have conditions and laws you must follow to stay safe and legal.
PerkZilla can't offer "one size fits all" advice here so we highly recommend you seek professional legal advice and/or research your local laws first before commencing any contests or sweepstakes campaign. We also recommend you include written rules and terms/conditions of entry with all your campaigns. Fortunately, you don't have to draft these rules yourself from scratch, sites such as
offer many customizable documents and forms that you can use and these go beyond 'templates' as they use an automated, step-by-step online interview process to create the right rules for you.
