B. To protect ourselves from seen and unforeseen issues we reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to withhold rewards and/or reward payments, including for any reason at any time. By participating in the Shop and Earn Rewards Program, you accept this condition. Additionally, we may choose in our sole discretion to institute a limit on how many times you can receive each type of reward. These limits may vary from program to program. We reserve the right at any time to cancel, modify, or restrict any aspect of the Shop and Earn Rewards Program and we reserve the right to apply such changes retroactively to any rewards which are accrued but not yet paid
C. Whether you are the sender or recipient of a Shop and Earn Link, we may use information we have collected about you from any source to most effectively generate a Shop and Earn Link and select the Merchant to which the Shop and Earn Link directs.
ii. We use commercially reasonable efforts via a variety of technologies designed to infer (from within the content that you input) the product, service or Merchant which you are referencing. The Shop and Earn Link and the Merchant to which it directs may or may not accurately reflect your original intent. You acknowledge and agree that we shall not be responsible or liable, directly or indirectly, for any damage or loss caused or alleged to be caused by or relating to your use of or reliance on any such Shop and Earn Link.
iii. You should not edit, remove or modify any element contained in any Shop and Earn Link. Changing the Shop and Earn Link may invalidate it, remove tracking/attribution or cause it to be inoperable.
iv. Certain third-party communication platforms may block, alter or otherwise disable a Shop and Earn Link, in which case the tracking and attribution may be inoperable and you may not earn a reward which would otherwise have been earned for a resulting transaction.
v. You may or may not be compensated for transactions where you or your agent are the user of a Shop and Earn Link which you generate.
vi. Some Merchants may place cookies (or other tracking method) on your device to recognize your device during a subsequent visit. This may enable the sender of the Shop and Earn Link to earn a reward for transactions which occur after the initial click on a Shop and Earn Link.
vii. We reserve right to add or remove Merchants, change commission rates from Merchants, and determine to which Merchant we direct a Shop and Earn Link.
viii. FTC Endorsement Disclosure Guidelines. Since you may earn a reward by recommending a product or Merchant using a Shop and Earn Link, the FTC Endorsement Guides require you to reference that fact within your message when you send a Shop and Earn Link. Learn more at The FTC’s Endorsement Guides.
D. Rewards and Payment Terms.
i. We are able to provide rewards for using Shop and Earn Links by sharing with you a portion of a marketing fee paid by a Merchant to us. Merchants may have holdback periods during which they place on hold a pending payment for a specified period, for example, until the expiration of a return policy and/or until a service is consumed. As such we can only provide a reward to you when a transaction is successfully completed and tracked and after we are paid by a Merchant. If for any reason the Merchant pays less or more than expected, we reserve the right to adjust the reward and/or payment to you.
ii. If we are not paid for a transaction by a Merchant, we shall have no obligation to provide any reward to you for the associated transaction. If there are any difficulties or failures in tracking a transaction for any reason we may not be able to pay out a reward. We partially rely on third party tracking systems and if we cannot track a transaction or if it was not properly attributed to you we will be unable to pay out a reward.
iii. Rewards are based upon marketing agreements which we have in place with many Merchants. The terms, conditions (including commission rates) associated with these agreements are constantly changing. The amount that you may earn is influenced by the then-current commission rate for a specific Merchant when a conversion occurs.
iv. Reward Share. Any reward amount due to you is determined by Shop and Earn in its sole discretion. We reserve the right to adjust the proportion of a commission which we share with you (the Reward Share) at any frequency and at any time without notice to you and which may be effective for all unpaid rewards.
v. Pending Rewards. If a recipient completes a transaction with a participating Merchant using a Shop and Earn Link, this may result in a Pending Reward, which is conditional until confirmed as described herein and below. Any information sent to you as a notification, email or account message or displayed within your Dashboard regarding a Pending Reward shall be conditional and shall not create a contractual obligation on behalf of Shop and Earn. We may subsequently alter or cancel the Pending Reward. The Pending Reward may change for any reason, including, but not limited to, the Reward Adjustments listed below.
vi. Reward Adjustments. Reasons that a Pending Reward may be changed or cancelled include, but are not limited to: charge-backs, product returns, duplicate entry or other error, non-bona fide transactions, non-receipt of payment from or refund of payment to the purchaser by the Merchant, our inability to contact you using the account contact information you provide in order to validate transactions as described below, your distribution of Shop and Earn Links via Unapproved Channels, your failure to comply with Third Party Merchant and/or Affiliate Network Terms and Conditions or where any prior payouts subsequently transpire to be more than the amount that was actually due to you. In addition, we may be required to nullify certain rewards due to limitations established by certain Merchants which prohibit payments to users who reside in certain states due to tax nexus considerations. After we receive payment from a Merchant for a transaction, we will calculate the actual amount due to you for a reward based upon the amount we receive from the Merchant and the then-current Reward Share.
vii. Validation. In order to prevent fraudulent use of the Services, we may contact you if you have multiple Pending Rewards for a specific Merchant, in order to validate your account and confirm that you are performing acceptable promotional methods.
viii. Ready to Withdraw. Rewards remain in the Pending state until (a) we have received payment from a Merchant for the associated transaction and (b) your balance meets or exceeds the Minimum Payment Threshold. When those conditions are met, the reward status changes from Pending to Ready to Withdraw. At that point you may elect to withdraw your funds or leave them in your account for the time being. At times we may push such funds automatically to your selected payment method prior to your manual request.
ix. Payment Periods. Payment of rewards will be issued in batches (for example once monthly). We reserve the right to change the frequency and timing of reward payments without notice to you. We may issue payments automatically, or we may provide an interface for you to manually elect to withdraw funds which are Ready to Withdraw. If you elect to manually withdraw earnings, the earnings will be distributed either in the next upcoming batch payment or sooner.
x. Minimum Payment Threshold. Reward payments are subject to a Minimum Payment Threshold of $20.00. Rewards will remain in the Pending state until your account reaches the minimum payment threshold, after which they will be reclassified as ‘ready to withdraw’. If the sum of your Pending Rewards is less than $20.00, your balance will roll forward to subsequent payment periods until the Minimum Payment Threshold is achieved. We do not issue payments for rewards until the Minimum Payment Threshold is reached.
xi.From time to time, in our sole discretion, we may choose to make a payment to you prior to your account reaching a Minimum Payment Threshold. If this occurs, it shall not set a precedent or alter the payment terms herein.
xii. Promotional Rewards. From time to time, in our sole discretion, we may choose to issue a promotional credit to you. For example, we may issue a reward for your first-time use of the service. Promotional rewards are generally limited to one reward per authenticated account, regardless of the number of devices associated with such account. Promotional Rewards are subject to the Minimum Payment Threshold described herein and may not be distributed in the event that you do not reach the Minimum Payment Threshold.
