IMPORTANT INFORMATION re REGULATIONS! was created by The_Cpt_FROGGY

Hi everyone,

We have been made aware that a few members have been entering giveaways in rapid succession, suggesting the use of scripts or macro, which is against our rules.

It may also be an attempt at key farming.

Our system will automatically notify us of this type of activity and record the evidence; the result of this is a permanent ban! There is no "if" here , you will be caught!

I run a fair and respectful website with great competitions for members to enter. It is very important to me that all members respect the rules so that every aspect of Zeepond is fair to everyone.

My Warmest Regards,

THE CPT FROGGY

Hi Everybody,

In the last few weeks, we have banned several users for re-gifting keys they have won here.

I just want to make clear to old and new Zeepond members to understand the following:

90% of keys are given by developers and publishers to promote their titles (current, new or upcoming) and are exclusively for personal use! The other 10% are provided by myself with my own money!

What this means is that they (Developers and Publishers) didn't make any money out of them and they hope winners will enjoy the game and perhaps talk about it to their friends and family!

We have strict rules on Zeepond which I will post below or can be found on the following link:

www.zeepond.com/zeepond/legal-information/giveaway-rules

You are not allowed to re-gift or re-sell a key you won on Zeepond on any other websites! All winners and the key they won are recorded as we hold a government promotional licence issued by THE NSW Government of Australia!

The rules are in place to protect us and the winners! Don't forget, By re-gifting or reselling a winning key you are not only breaching our rules, but also the requests of developers and publishers!

Anybody who is found to be doing this will be issued a permanent ban instantly!

To the loyal and fair Zeepond users, please feel free to send us a message if you suspect that one of our users is breaching the rules by using the contact tabs next to your avatar and click on the general enquiries and provide a link for us to investigates.

We are always on the lookout but we might miss a few offenders here and there. However, must of them are being caught and removed!

So, if you are re-gifting or re-selling our prize keys. STOP IT NOW, be fair and play fair or we will open the exit door for you!

Pretty straight forward and to the point.
We have our rules and regulations for a reason.
It is for the best user experience and in the best interest of the developers we who support what we do. We do ask all users to familiarize themselves with the rules. If you happen to win a game you have already purchased please post in the Giveaways thread and we will give the key to another user.

Thank You and keep having fun,

Hi everybody,

From time to time, a winner might receive a duplicate key.
It happens, and we are more than happy to contact the developers/publishers for a replacement key.
However, a lot of our members haven't ticked and agreed to our privacy policy, or our terms and conditions, and haven't provided a Steam account with a minimum of 50 games.
Therefore, from now on we will only help members who have ticked these two boxes, which can be seen on their profile, and have provided a Steam ID.
Let's play fair all around.
Cheers,
THE CPT FROGGY
