Agreement to Official Rules
Participation in the Community Rewards constitutes entrants full and unconditional agreement to and acceptance of these Official Rules and the decisions of Rockstaff, which are final and binding. Winning a prize is contingent upon being compliant with these Official Rules and fulfilling all other requirements set forth herein.
How to Enter
The Community Rewards must be entered by submitting an entry using the methods outlined in the Community Rewards. The entry must fulfill all Community Rewards requirements, as specified, to be eligible to win a prize. Entries that are not complete or do not adhere to the rules or specifications may be disqualified at the sole discretion of Rockstaff. You may not enter more times than indicated by using multiple email addresses, identities or devices in an attempt to circumvent the rules. If you use fraudulent methods or otherwise attempt to circumvent the rules your submission may be removed from eligibility at the sole discretion of Rockstaff.
Rockstaff will select potential winners in a random drawing from among all eligible entries received. The odds of being selected depend on the number of entries received. Rockstaff will attempt to notify the potential winner via telephone or email. If the potential winner cannot be contacted within seven (7) days after the date of the first attempt to contact him/her, Rockstaff may select an alternate potential winner in his/her place at random from the remaining non-winning, eligible entries.
The potential winners will be notified by email or phone. If a potential winner cannot be contacted, the potential winner forfeits the prize. Potential winners must continue to comply with all terms and conditions of these Official Rules and winning is contingent upon fulfilling all requirements. In the event that a potential winner is disqualified for any reason, Rockstaff will award the applicable prize to an alternate winner by random drawing from among all remaining eligible entries.
Prizes will be advertised clearly in Community Rewards and may be adjusted over time. Some Prizes are redeemable via earnable ‘Gems’, while others may be specific to individual campaigns as advertised.
Eligible referrals require a referral to use a referrers discount code to make a website purchase. Gems will automatically be credited to the referrer’s account after purchase. Referral rewards are currently limited to the referral’s first purchase only, and does not carry forward to future purchases.
On receipt of a reward that represents monetary value, you will be solely responsible for managing your own tax liabilities in the country of receipt. Any prizes provided as a result of a raffle or sweepstake will not be subject to tax in the United Kingdom, but Rockstaff cannot guarantee this is the case for every country.

Rockstaff 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 Community Rewards or to be acting in violation of these Official Rules or in an unsportsmanlike or disruptive manner.
