If you do not agree to all of the terms of this Agreement, then do not enroll in Upromise.
You also acknowledge that you have had an opportunity to review the Upromise
Privacy Statement or that it has been made available to you.
This Agreement constitutes a legally binding agreement between Upromise,
Inc., a Delaware corporation ("Upromise"), and each individual
who registers with the Upromise Rewards Service, as described below
(the "Service"), by completing the registration form on the
Upromise website ("you" or the "Member").
As used in this Agreement, the terms "we" and "us"
mean Upromise, and the term "our" means Upromise's.
Registration. You represent that you are a person of legal age
in the state in which you live (generally at least 18 to 21, depending on the state)
and are a U.S. citizen or residing in the United States or its territories.
You agree that it is your responsibility to keep your Member information current,
complete and accurate by periodically updating your information in the appropriate section of our website.
License. Subject to this Agreement, we hereby grant you a non-exclusive,
non-transferable license (without the right to sublicense) for so long as you
participate in the Service and adhere to this Agreement, to access, participate
in and use the Service. You agree that you obtain no rights other than the
rights and licenses expressly granted in this Agreement.
Fees. We do not charge a fee to join Upromise.
Some of the businesses that will participate in the Service by
rebating a portion of Members' purchases at or with those businesses
(each a "Contributing Company") may charge fees with respect
to some of their offers related to the Service. Any such fees will be
disclosed in the description of those Contributing Companies' offers,
and each Contributing Company reserves the right to change such fees or
institute new or additional fees in the future.
Policies. You agree to comply with this Agreement,
and all other policies, rules and terms and conditions as set forth in
Service materials, including materials of Contributing Companies,
either in print or on our website (collectively, the "Policies").
The Policies, including any amendments which may be made from time to time,
are hereby incorporated by reference into this Agreement.
We may modify this Agreement or the Policies at any time in accordance
with Section 17 of this Agreement. You acknowledge and agree that any information
you provide to a Contributing Company is subject to that Contributing Company's
own privacy and data collection policies.
No Unauthorized Use of the Service. You agree that you will not,
and will not permit others to:
provide any unauthorized third party with access to the Service or any
information, data, text, links, images, software, chat, communications
and other content available through the Internet and proprietary to
Upromise (collectively, "Content") by any means;
modify, reverse engineer, reverse assemble or decompile any of the
software applications used by you in connection with your participation in the Service;
engage in any activity that does not comply with U.S. law or other applicable
law and regulations or otherwise engage in any illegal, manipulative or
misleading activity through the use of the Service;
introduce into the Service any code intended to disrupt the Service,
alter or delete its Content, access confidential Content on our website
or interfere with the operation of the Service, including, but not limited to,
distribution of unsolicited advertising or mail messages and propagation of computer worms and viruses;
post any material in any form whatsoever on our website or within the Service that is defamatory,
obscene or otherwise unlawful or violates any third party's right of privacy or publicity; or
infringe any third party's patent, copyright, service mark, trademark or other intellectual
property right of any kind or misappropriate the trade secrets of any third party in
connection with your use of the Service.
Security. You will maintain the confidentiality of the user IDs and passwords by which you
access the Service, and will allow access to the Service only by authorized persons, and not by any program,
expert system, electronic agent, "bot" or other automated means. If you desire, you may authorize
an account guest to contact Upromise customer care to take certain actions on your behalf with respect to your account.
The Upromise website will set forth our Policies regarding account guests.
Any use of your assigned user IDs or passwords will be deemed to be your use.
If there is a breach of security through your account, you will immediately change your password and notify us of such breach.
You agree that, unless you have first notified us immediately of any such breach,
we should assume that any instruction transmitted using your user ID and password is yours and has been authorized by you,
and we will have no obligation to inquire into the propriety of such instruction.
In addition, you agree that we should assume that any instruction by an account guest that
is in compliance with the Policies has been authorized by you, and we will have no obligation to
inquire into the propriety of such instruction. You will not permit any use of the Service that would damage,
interfere with or unreasonably overload the Service. You acknowledge that Upromise will not contact you to solicit your user ID or password.
Discontinuation or Suspension of Use. We may at any time and without prior notice except as set forth below:
discontinue transmitting all or any part of the Content related to the Service;
change, discontinue or limit access to the Service or any functionality, feature or other component of the Service; or
suspend your use of or access to all or part of the Service upon giving you notice of such suspension.
Contributing Company Offers and Contributions
Contributions. Subject to the terms of this Agreement, you will earn rewards denominated
in U.S. dollars on all Qualifying Transactions made at, from or with Contributing Companies,
or upon redemption of points or other awards of certain Contributing Companies as applicable
and credited to your Upromise Account, in the amounts or percentages set by those Contributing
Companies and subject to those Contributing Companies' terms and conditions. You acknowledge and
agree that you have no right to a cash withdrawal of your Contributions until you have accumulated
the minimum withdrawal threshold set forth in Section 15(c)(ii) of this Agreement, and until such
time all Contributions in the Rewards Account shall remain the property of Upromise unless and until
otherwise distributed in accordance with the terms of this Agreement. For the purposes of this Agreement,
(i) a purchase or activity is a "Qualifying Transaction" once all conditions in a Contributing
Company's offer with respect to that purchase or activity, including any waiting periods, have been satisfied,
and (ii) the rewards you earn on Qualified Transactions are referred to as "Contributions".
Some of your Qualifying Transactions may be made at grocery stores and other retailers that are not
Contributing Companies ("Pass-Through Retailers"), but that have agreed to provide us with
information about your purchases so that Contributing Companies whose products are sold by those Pass-Through
Retailers can provide Contributions on your Qualifying Transactions made at such Pass-Through Retailers.
Pass-Through Retailers shall not be responsible for the refusal of any Contributing Company to make Contributions
in accordance with the terms of that Contributing Company's offer. Solely as a convenience, we may provide a
promotional page or other description on the Upromise website of each Contributing Company's terms and conditions.
Contributing Companies may impose conditions or restrictions different from, or in addition to, those described
on such promotional pages or in such descriptions. Neither we nor our agents are responsible for setting or maintaining the amount or
percentage of the Contributions offered by any Contributing Company or for requirements of any Contributing Company's
program or offer. Each Contributing Company has reserved the right to change at any time, and without notice,
the amount or percentage of any Contributions it offers as well as the terms and conditions of any qualifying purchase.
Your continued use of the Service thereafter will constitute acceptance of such terms and conditions.
Neither we nor our agents represent or warrant that any particular Contributing Company or Pass-Through Retailer will participate in the
Service at the time you join the Service or at any time thereafter.
Your Upromise Account and the Rewards Account.
Contributions you accrue as a result of Qualifying Transactions will be posted to your
individual account on the records of Upromise (your "Upromise Account").
Once received by the Contributing Companies, Contributions posted to your Upromise Account
will be held in one or more accounts established and maintained by Upromise as trustee for
the exclusive benefit of Upromise Members (the "Rewards Account").
The Upromise website will display a summary of activity in your Upromise Account.
Generally, Contributions will be posted to your Upromise Account within thirty (30)
days of notice from a Contributing Company to Upromise of your relevant transaction or
your election to convert or redeem existing miles or awards from a Contributing Company's
eligible awards program. However, we will not be liable for damages resulting from any failure
to post Contributions to your Upromise Account in a timely manner. For your convenience,
we may post pending Contributions from Contributing Companies in your Upromise Account prior
to our receipt of the actual Contribution. However, you will not have any rights to such
Contributions unless and until the applicable Contributing Company makes the entire Contribution
to the Rewards Account. You acknowledge and accept that you are solely responsible for checking
your Upromise Account regularly to verify that Contributions have been properly posted.
If you believe that a Contribution has not been properly posted to your Upromise Account,
then you must inform Upromise within one year of the qualified transaction for which you are
claiming that a Contribution should have been posted and must be able to provide proof of such
transaction acceptable to Upromise. Upromise reserves the right to determine whether a Contribution
should have been posted to your Upromise Account.
Upromise will maintain a record of the Contributions received in the Rewards Account.
You will not be entitled to receive interest on any Contributions.
Except as contemplated by Section 12, Contributions will remain in the Rewards Account until
(i) you direct us to distribute such Contributions in accordance with Section 15(a) or 15(c)
of this Agreement, or (ii) we exercise our rights under Section 16(b) below.
Contributing Companies have no role in verifying, administering or maintaining any Rewards
Account or any Upromise Account. The amount of Contributions available for distribution in
accordance with Sections 15 and 16 of this Agreement is the amount of Contributions in the
Rewards Account, which may differ from the amount of Contributions posted to your Upromise
Account, generally because your Upromise Account may also include pending Contributions.
Only Upromise is authorized to act upon your instructions with respect to the disposition
of Contributions in the Rewards Account in accordance with this Section and Section 15 of this Agreement.
No Responsibility for Contributing Companies. You agree that Upromise is not an agent of any
Contributing Company and that Contributing Companies operate independently of, and are not under the
control of Upromise with respect to the Service or otherwise. Accordingly, neither we nor our agents represent or warrant,
or give any assurances, that any Contributing Company will provide a Contribution for any particular
transaction even where such transaction would appear to qualify for such Contribution under either Upromise
or Contributing Company statements. Neither we nor our agents are responsible for the failure of any Contributing Company to pay
Contributions in accordance with the terms of that Contributing Company's offer. Further, your participation
in offers or promotions of, or correspondence with, any Contributing Company is solely between you and that
Contributing Company. Neither we nor our agents assume any liability, obligation or responsibility for any part of any such correspondence,
offer or promotion, including without limitation the withdrawal or modification of any such offer or promotion.
Also, no Contributing Company assumes any liability, obligation or responsibility for our conduct with respect to the Service.
Online Affiliates. In the case of certain online Contributing Companies
("Online Affiliates"), the Online Affiliates have agreed to pay us
certain affiliate or referral fees when Members purchase goods or services from
such Online Affiliates through our website. We agree to transfer all or portion
of the affiliate or referral fee we receive as a result of your Qualified Transactions
with Online Affiliates (as specified on our website for each particular Contributing Company)
as a Contribution in the Rewards Account upon receipt of the entire affiliate or referral fee.
No Contribution associated with any purchase from an Online Affiliate will be made to the Rewards
Account unless and until the entire associated affiliate or referral fee has been made by such Online
Affiliate to Upromise. Upromise reserves the right to change its offer with respect to the amount of
the Contribution associated with any Online Affiliate at any time, but no such change will affect any
Contributions received prior to such change.
Returning and Rescinding Contributions; Escheatment.
- We may withdraw Contributions from the Rewards Account and deduct Contributions posted
to your Upromise Account in order to make adjustments for returns and cancellations with respect
to Qualifying Transactions. In the event that you have withdrawn a Contribution or have elected
to have it transferred to a Linked Account (as defined in Section 15(a) below) or another Member
and you subsequently reverse the transaction with a Contributing Company that generated such Contribution,
or otherwise are required to return the Contribution to the Contributing Company pursuant to the terms of
the applicable offer, whether or not you are still participating in the Service, you will remain solely
responsible for the return of the Contribution credited from such purchase, and we may apply future
Contributions against such obligation and/or apply any remaining Contributions to address the discrepancy.
In the event you fail to return the Contribution, we reserve the right to take any and all legal action
necessary to collect the Contribution from you, including but not limited to pursuing such claim in a court of law,
employing a collection agency or reporting such claim to a credit reporting agency. We reserve the right to rescind
Contributions and to bar further Contributions to, and/or terminate your membership if we believe in our discretion
that you are abusing or have abused the Service, including, without limitation, by engaging in fraudulent activities,
by engaging in a pattern of returning products after the corresponding Contribution has been credited, by creating or
attempting to create or participating in any market in Contributions, by engaging in or accepting any broad-based
solicitation of Contributions or by attempting to receive Contributions from transactions that have not been made by you.
We will notify you if we determine you have engaged in any such activities, and in such event you agree to forfeit any and
all Contributions in the Rewards Account.
Each state has its own escheatment law which requires companies to turn over to the state property
of its residents that the state deems to be unclaimed or abandoned. If your Upromise Account has not had
any activity, as defined by your state of residence according to our records, for a certain period of time
(generally three to five years), Upromise may be required by law to remit the Contributions in the Rewards
Account to the state of your last known address. Similarly, if you have a check issued by Upromise that has
not been cashed after a certain period of time (also generally three to five years), Upromise may be required
by law to remit the amount of the uncashed check to the state of your last known address. If we remit funds to
your state of residence as required by law, you will need to contact the state directly to obtain the funds.
Account Adjustments. In the event of any abusive or fraudulent activity related to the Service,
we reserve the right, following notice to you, to make any adjustments to your Upromise Account
and/or the Contributions in the Rewards Account in accordance with this Agreement, the Policies,
any applicable laws, rules or regulations, and the terms of any Contributing Company offers.
Use of Information
Use of Information.
You acknowledge that in order to administer the Service, we will collect information about you,
either directly or from our agents, your purchases from Contributing Companies and Pass-Through Retailers and your Linked Accounts
with Linked Account Managers (both as defined in Section 15(a) below). In furtherance of the foregoing,
to the extent a telecommunications carrier is a Contributing Company, you authorize such entity,
its affiliates and authorized representatives (collectively, the "Telecommunications Carrier")
to share with us, and our affiliates and authorized representatives, your proprietary network information,
qualifying Telecommunications Carrier services information and other Telecommunications Carrier service
and usage information. You also authorize the Telecommunications Carrier to disclose to us any and all
information with respect to your purchases of the Telecommunications Carrier's services, including qualifying
Telecommunications Carrier services, as is necessary for us to provide any aspect of the Service or to advise
you of Telecommunication Carrier services that are eligible for Contributions by the Telecommunications Carrier.
You authorize Contributing Companies and Pass-Through Retailers and each of our respective agents to disclose to us
any and all information with respect to your purchases from such Contributing Company. You also authorize Linked
Account Managers and their agents to disclose to us any and all information with respect to your Linked Accounts
as is necessary to fulfill the terms of this Agreement or to provide any aspect of the Service as set forth on our website.
In addition, by registering any credit card, debit card, charge card, loyalty card or other unique account or identifier,
you hereby authorize us and our agents to collect any and all information from any credit card processor, issuing bank,
other card issuer or any available source with respect to the purchases made using such credit card, debit card, charge card,
loyalty card or other unique account or identifier. You authorize us to use any such information and to disclose such
information (a) to our representatives and agents, (b) to third parties, where necessary or convenient for transfer or
withdrawal of your accumulated Contributions or otherwise in connection with the Service, (c) to comply with requests,
orders or subpoenas from courts of law or any regulatory, legislative or administrative bodies and (d) otherwise in
accordance with the terms of the Upromise Privacy Statement on our website. You represent that you have full authority
to register each credit card, debit card, charge card, loyalty card and other unique account or identifier you register
in the Service and to receive information about the transactions effected using such cards, accounts or identifiers.
You authorize us to disclose such cards, accounts and identifiers to affiliated and unaffiliated third parties for the
purposes set forth in this paragraph, even if you never make use of the service provided by one or more of those third parties.
You authorize us, at the time you register a credit or debit card in the Service, to request authorization from
the applicable credit, debit or charge card issuer for a transaction on such credit, debit or charge card in order
to protect against fraud or other abuse; provided that we will reverse such transaction promptly upon receipt of
authorization or rejection from the credit, debit or charge card issuer. You acknowledge and agree to this procedure
and acknowledge that, during the period between authorization and reversal of such transaction, certain funds (up to $25.00)
from your credit or debit card account may not be available for your use. Upromise will have no liability to you for any
losses or costs associated with the temporary unavailability of such funds.
You authorize us to share information about you and your account with third parties who have referred you to us.
Use of Contributions
Linked Accounts. Upromise is not a registered broker-dealer and,
therefore, does not affect any transactions in, offer, sell or distribute
any securities. To the extent any activities associated with the Service
are required to be performed by a registered broker-dealer, such activities
will be conducted exclusively by an entity that may lawfully conduct
Linked Account Managers. Certain financial institutions or state
agencies or instrumentalities (the "Investment Managers") have
entered into arrangements with one or more of our Joint Marketing Partner(s) to offer
various investment accounts and prepaid tuition plans, including tax-advantaged
educational savings accounts provided for in Section 529 of the Internal Revenue
Code of 1986, which you may also link to the Service and into which you may cause
Contributions in the Rewards Account to be transferred, subject to such terms
and conditions, including certain minimum transfers, imposed by such Investment
Managers. Similarly, certain Upromise affiliates and other third parties with
whom Upromise may enter into relationships from time-to-time (the "Other Managers",
and collectively with the Investment Managers, the "Linked Account Managers")
may offer and/or administer student loan accounts, savings accounts, certificate of
deposit accounts and/or other financial accounts or product benefits, which you may link to the Service,
or are automatically linked to the Services pursuant to such product's terms,
and into or out of which Contributions in the Rewards Account may be transferred,
subject to such terms and conditions, including certain minimum transfers, imposed by
such Other Managers, as applicable. Any account or plan with a Linked Account Manager that you link
to the Service is referred to herein as a "Linked Account". To transfer Contributions
to a Linked Account Manager, you must submit to the Linked Account Manager a separate
account application and such other materials as the Linked Account Manager may require,
and you must satisfy any terms, conditions or requirements imposed by such Linked Account
Manager, in its sole discretion. We do not represent, warrant or guaranty that any Linked
Account Manager will accept your account application or make available to you any particular
product. Linked Account Managers may impose conditions or requirements different from, or
in addition to, any described on our website. Each Linked Account Manager has reserved the
right to change at any time, and without notice, the terms, conditions and requirements relating
to any product it may offer. We do not represent or warrant that any particular Linked Account
Manager will make available any particular product at the time you join the Service or at any
time thereafter. Contributing Companies have no role in establishing or administering Linked
Accounts. Upon your authorization through our website, transfers of Contributions from the
Rewards Account to a Linked Account in accordance with this Section will occur on a periodic
basis, as determined by us and the applicable Linked Account Manager, in each case subject to
any minimum transfer requirements of the applicable Linked Account Manager or Upromise, once
you have set your preferences on our website in accordance with the procedures we establish
from time to time. You acknowledge that transfers directed by you will not occur until the
transferred Contributions have been received by the Linked Account Manager in accordance
with the terms and conditions of the agreement with the Linked Account Manager. You represent
that you have full authority to link to the Service each Linked Account you link to the
Service and to receive information about the transactions effected in such Linked Accounts,
including the Linked Account balance. You authorize us to share information about your Rewards
Account and any Linked Account with the applicable Linked Account Managers, and you authorize
the applicable Linked Account Managers to share information about any Linked Account with us,
as may be necessary to transfer Contributions from the Rewards Account to your Linked Account(s)
and to display information about your Linked Account(s) on the Upromise website.
While the Linked Account Managers have agreed to work with Members to
establish and maintain Linked Accounts in compliance with state, local,
and federal regulations governing these types of accounts, we disclaim
all liability for any damages, including indirect or consequential,
resulting from the disposition of Contributions in the Rewards Account
once such Contributions have been transferred to a Linked Account Manager.
We do not make any representation about, or assume responsibility for, the
performance of any Linked Account, the risk of which is borne fully by you.
Other Uses of Contributions. You may choose to direct us to distribute
Contributions in the Rewards Account in either of the following ways, or in any
other manner that we may establish from time to time and set forth on the Upromise
website or otherwise disclosed to you, as alternatives to transferring Contributions
to a Linked Account with a Linked Account Manager:
Transfer as gift to another Member. You may direct that some or all of the
Contributions in the Rewards Account be held in the Rewards Account for the
benefit of another Member through the Family and Friends network in accordance
with the procedures we establish from time to time; or
Request a cash withdrawal. Provided the Contributions in the Rewards
Account equal or exceed the minimum withdrawal amount of ten dollars ($10.00),
you may request a withdrawal of any or all of the Contributions as a cash payment to you.
Distributions of Contributions from the Rewards Account in accordance with
this Section 15(c) will be made in accordance with the applicable distribution
procedures we establish from time to time and set forth on our website or otherwise disclose to you.
You acknowledge and accept that none of the Contributing Companies, or
Upromise is the agent of any Linked Account
Manager or any 529 Plan sponsor. You further acknowledge and accept
that no Linked Account Manager or 529 Plan sponsor will have any liability,
obligation or responsibility for the conduct of Upromise with respect to the Service. In furtherance of the foregoing,
you acknowledge and accept that no Linked Account Manager will have any
responsibility for or liability with respect to any Contributions until
such Contributions have been transferred to the Linked Account Manager.
Termination; Expiration or Forfeiture of Membership and Upromise Accounts; Rights to Contributions.
This Agreement is effective when accepted by you, as described in
the first paragraph of this Agreement, and will remain in effect
and legally bind you and us until you or we terminate your membership
in the Service. We may terminate your membership in the Service with
or without cause at any time immediately after notice to you of such
termination. Upon any termination of your membership, your Upromise
Account automatically will be closed effective upon such termination.
Likewise, if either you or we close your Upromise Account for any reason,
your membership in the Service automatically will terminate effective upon
closure of your Upromise Account.
If your Upromise Account is closed or terminated, and the Contributions
in the Rewards Account equal or exceed the minimum withdrawal amount
set forth in Section 15(c)(ii) of this Agreement then, subject to
Sections 12 and 13, we will distribute the Contributions to you in cash
in accordance with the applicable withdrawal procedures we establish
from time to time and set forth on our website or otherwise disclose to you.
In accordance with Section 8 of this Agreement, if the Contributions in the
Rewards Account are less than the minimum withdrawal amount when your Upromise
Account is closed or terminated, you will not have any rights to the Contributions
in the Rewards Account.
Upon any termination of this Agreement, your right to use and access the
Service and to receive Contributions will terminate and Sections
9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 18, 19, 20 and 21 hereof will survive in accordance
with their terms. Subject to the limitations set forth in this Agreement,
termination will not prejudice either your or our remedies at law or in equity.
Amendments. Upromise may amend this Agreement from time to time by posting an
updated Agreement on the Upromise website. If Upromise materially changes this
Agreement, we will notify you by email at the email address specified in your
account and/or through a notice on our website at least 30 days prior to the
effective date of the amendment. Your continued membership in Upromise after an
updated Agreement is posted on our website, or 30 days after notice is provided to
you by email or by a notice posted on our website, as applicable, will constitute
your affirmative acceptance by you of such amendment and your consent to abide by
any terms thereof.

Transactions due to computer system failures or interruptions beyond
the reasonable control of the tracking party. Furthermore, certain
hardware devices and software such as pop-up blockers, ad blocking software,
