Updated November 2, 2013:
Contests and Giveaways are presented on THE ROCK FATHER on a regular basis. These are posted as, and meant to be, fun and engaging opportunities on behalf of my sponsors. There's few things that I enjoy more than bringing some joy to a family or child by being able to provide some cool prizes from time-to-time. Happy families and happy kids is what THE ROCK FATHER is all about.
What I'm not about is providing opportunities for those who choose to abuse or make an attempt to game the system through fraudulent entry methods, multiple "dummy" accounts, or for those who do not follow simple rules. I am also not here to provide income-fueling items for the so-called "professional" sweepers. While most of my promotions feature winners chosen at random (via Rafflecopter and Random.org), each winner will be vetted for authenticity and to see if they've followed the rules. THE ROCK FATHER reserves the right to cancel or void any and all entry methods, and will choose an alternate winner at his discretion.
By participating in a contest or giveaway on THE ROCK FATHER, you are agreeing that you understand and will abide by the posted rules and regulations within the individual call for entries that you are responding to, in addition to the following:
- You may only enter promotions on THE ROCK FATHER using genuine, authentic user accounts that are not set-up for the sole purpose of entering contests and giveaways or "sweeping."
- You may only enter promotions on THE ROCK FATHER using one user account per platform when it comes to social actions. You may not enter using multiple accounts from the same social service.
- Twitter "Egg" users will not be eligible for entering promotions on THE ROCK FATHER. Additionally, Twitter "Egg" users that attempt to follow The Rock Father will be blocked.
Please be aware that Rafflecopter and other entry devices employed by THE ROCK FATHER do log IP addresses. Bottom line: If I see six different accounts with the same IP addy - you're out.
The Internet (and the World in general) is not a very fair place. These checks and balances have been put into place to ensure that THE ROCK FATHER - my corner of the World - is as fair to all as possible. No promotion will every be 100% perfect, but I'd certainly like to try. Real Fun. Real Readers. Real Human Beings.
