- If a player spots a Beat Box in a location that they think is unsuitable for safety or other reasons, please report this to our helpdesk team via the Help? widget who will investigate the issue further. When selecting Beat Box locations, we always try to consider the potential impact on safety and carry out a risk assessment for each location. In the instance that a player reports a location as being unsuitable, we will carry out another review of that location accordingly.
- Gems have a 50 metre diameter so players should not have to travel anywhere that is inappropriate or unsafe to collect a Gem.

- This is our policy on adding points to an individual or team account. Unfortunately we cannot award points deemed to be lost from non functioning Beat Boxes. The only time players can earn points individually or for their team is for certain events or promotions run by Beat the Street.

Any points that are added to an individual or team account will be at the discretion of Beat the Street.
