INACTIVE MEMBER ACCOUNTS

REWARDS PROGRAM

Points

The Points will be credited to your account only through your participation in activities authorized by RewardsMate.

The timing of credits for points depends on the Survey. For some Surveys, credits are applied very quickly or within a few days; for others, the credits are applied after the Survey has closed.

RewardsMate will maintain a record of the Points credited to and debited from your account and allow you to check the status of your account online by logging in and checking the sub-tab “Redeem Rewards” under “Your Profile”. Although RewardsMate makes every effort to ensure that accounts are credited correctly, it is your responsibility to verify that your Points have been credited properly. If you feel the incentive amounts credited to your account are incorrect, you must contact RewardsMate by email within sixty (60) days following our alleged error and explain in full the basis of your dispute, attaching any relevant information which offers evidence of the discrepancy. Upon receipt of your notice, we will investigate your claim and notify you of our decision to adjust or maintain the amount of Points credited to your account, as we consider appropriate, within thirty (30) days. If we need additional time to decide your claim, we will notify you and will make all feasible effort to render a decision as soon as reasonably practicable. Any decision by us with regard to such a claim will be final.

Vouchers

If you redeem your Points with paper vouchers, RewardsMate will send the paper voucher to the mailing address you provided to us on request via e-mail. RewardsMate will only mail one paper voucher. If you do not receive the paper voucher and we reasonably determine that you are entitled to a replacement, such replacement voucher will be an electronic one. A member must request resending of a missing voucher within a time limit of 6 months from when the voucher was first ordered. RewardsMate will not process any orders made after this 6 month time limit.

Transferability

The Points have no cash value, and may not be assigned, transferred and/or pledged to any third party. You have no property rights or other legal interests in any Points granted pursuant to the Program.

Program Duration & Changes to Rules

Any revisions may affect your ability to use any Points you accumulate. If the Program is terminated or your membership is terminated by RewardsMate other than as a result of your breach of these Terms, you will only have 30 days from such termination date to redeem all of your accumulated Points. If there is a modification to RewardsMate Points, we will endeavor to notify you; however, RewardsMate will not be responsible if you do not learn of the modification. The rewards offered and point levels required for specific rewards are subject to change without notice. All rewards are subject to availability.
