Cash Back Terms

Version: 1.0.0

Last updated: 2018-06-18

ID.me’s Cash Back Loyalty Program offers a platform for its members to earn money in the forms of automatic rebates (“Cash Back Rebates”), which are separate and apart from, and in addition to, any other discounts available through ID.me’s Services. The specific terms related to the Cash Back Loyalty Program can be found here and are treated as part of these Terms of Service.

1. Overview

The Cash Back Loyalty Program allows ID.me members to shop with our Merchant Partners and earn Cash Back Rebates. ID.me’s Cash-Back Loyalty Program has three tiers of cash-back commissions for users who shop through ID.me’s website (the Website). From the lowest percentage to the highest percentage of cash-back available, ID.me’s commission tiers are labeled Preferred, Premium, and VIP. VIP status is initially granted to all individuals who register with ID.me for a period of one month plus the number of days remaining until the end of the following calendar month. After this period of time, the VIP status will expire and the user must maintain a Preferred status or higher by accumulating a designated number of points to remain eligible for rewards in the Cash Back Loyalty Program. Points are accrued in a variety of ways, including but not limited to information sharing, social on-site activities, and referring users to ID.me’s Services or by Instant VIP Actions (as defined on the Website). Cash Back Rebates are automatically earned when members make a qualifying online purchase originating from the ID.me Marketplace with a Merchant Partner. Exclusive Cash Back Rebate offers may be unlocked for certain brands when members verify that they belong to an eligible group, such as active duty military. Participating affiliated merchants will have cash back percentages explicitly listed on each of their offers, along with cash back amounts listed on their own Store Offers page within the Website.

2. Eligibility

The Cash Back Loyalty Program is offered for our registered users with active accounts who make qualifying purchases (defined below) and who are at least 18 years of age or older. To be eligible for Cash Back rewards you must have an account balance of $10 or more by the end of a purchase period, and must have provided ID.me with a PayPal linked email address for payment. Members may not use scripts or disguised redirects to derive financial benefit from ID.me. Any attempt to accumulate Cash Back Rebates by means of an automated machine or computer, scripts, software computerized or automated process, or through the use of multiple accounts is expressly prohibited. ID.me will cancel a member’s account and that member will forfeit all Cash Back Rebates earned if they are found to be manipulating the system. ID.me reserves the right to pursue such prohibited conduct to the fullest extent of the law. Members must maintain one unique account and any duplicate accounts are subject to cancellation. Determination of what is a unique account and what actions are deemed manipulative is at the sole discretion of ID.me. Duplicate accounts can result in cancellation of account(s). Any failure to comply with this Agreement, any fraud or abuse relating to the accrual or receipt of Cash Back Rebates, or any misrepresentation of any information furnished to ID.me or its affiliates by you or anyone acting on your behalf may result in the termination of your account and forfeiture of your accrued Cash Back Rebates. If ID.me has any reason to suspect fraudulent activity is associated with your account, ID.me reserves the right to delay or withhold payment of Cash Back Rebates. You give ID.me permission to review your account with Merchant Partners in cases where ID.me suspects fraudulent activity. ID.me is not responsible for lost or stolen payments, including gift cards. ID.me is not responsible for payments delivered to the wrong address through no fault of ID.me or for payment errors made by payment partners.

3. Cash Back Rebates

To be eligible for Cash Back Rebates you must first take action to establish your cash back status and then make a qualifying purchase. In order to make a qualifying purchase, you must 1) be 18 years of age or older; 2) have cookies enabled on your web browser; 3) log-in to ID.me with your user name and password; 4) obtain Preferred status, or higher, by accumulating points for sharing information with ID.me; 5) follow a link for an offer from the ID.me Marketplace; 6) add items to your cart; and 7) complete your transaction. Please note that discount codes, coupon codes or promotion codes that are NOT supplied by ID.me can negate a qualifying purchase. In addition, purchases made with a gift card or gift certificate as part of the payment and purchases of drug prescriptions (for users or their pets), extended warranty products, recurring monthly subscriptions (excluding magazine subscriptions from magazine subscription websites), trial and free products, and back-ordered items may also negate a qualifying purchase. Please review merchant offer terms for any offer of interest to you, and comply with their terms to earn cash back. Additionally, to earn Cash Back Rebates, you must make your qualifying purchase within the same shopping session you start after clicking the Merchant Partner link on the Website. If you visit other sites before completing your purchase or use coupons not provided by ID.me, your purchase may be associated with a service other than ID.me and you might not earn cash back on your purchase. If you disable “cookies” on your computer you will not be able to earn Cash Back Rebates as cookies are used to authenticate a user and to be certain Cash Back Rebates are assigned to the appropriate Member account. ID.me makes no guarantee that cash back will be rewarded on purchases even if all steps are followed for a qualifying purchase. When a rebate inquiry claim is filed by a member, ID.me member support will investigate the issue and will seek a resolution, but ID.me will not offer the rebate in question unless the merchant agrees to pay ID.me for that particular rebate. If after four (4) weeks, a merchant does not resolve the rebate issue, this will constitute non-payment from the merchant and the rebate inquiry cannot be paid. Determination of whether or not a purchase made through an ID.me Merchant Partner is a qualifying purchase is at the sole discretion of ID.me. ID.me is not responsible for tracking problems resulting from incorrect usage of the ID.me Service, disabling cookies, computer issues resulting from unknown causes such as third-party software or other issues, merchant partner errors/omissions or from any other failure of tracking mechanisms.

4. Earning Bonuses, Other Rewards and Use of Online Coupons

Specific cash back amounts vary, as described on the Website, depending on a number of factors, including but not limited to whether a user has accrued enough points to garner a Preferred, Premium or VIP status, specified action(s) a user performs with ID.me, social activities a user undertakes within the Website, referrals of other users to ID.me, and user purchases from participating stores and product categories. ID.me or ID.me partners may periodically offer monetary bonuses or other rewards when members provide more information about themselves or verify that they are a member of an eligible group. The terms and conditions accompanying such offers will govern how they are earned and paid if the terms and conditions differ from this Agreement. ID.me also provides online coupons as a free service to its members. These online coupons are uploaded into our website by our administrative staff. ID.me is not responsible for the redemption, errors/omissions or expiration of online coupons and it is the member's responsibility to make sure that a discount, percentage off, special pricing or free offer is present in the checkout process of an affiliate merchant. Coupons are generally not valid with any other offer from a specific merchant unless otherwise noted. All offers and promotions on this Website are subject to change without notice. ID.me provides a venue for obtaining the information contained in its Services and has no control over the legality of any coupons or other offers made by affiliated merchants, the ability of any of the affiliated merchants to complete the sales in accordance with the offers, or the quality of the goods offered by the affiliated merchants. ID.me has no control over whether affiliated merchants will honor the offers shown on the Website and does not guarantee the accuracy or completeness of the information contained in this Website. In the event you have a dispute with a vendor in any way relating to the Services or the use of information from this Service, you agree to waive and release ID.me from any and all claims, demands, actions, damages (actual and consequential), losses, costs or expenses of every kind and nature, known and unknown, disclosed and undisclosed relating to that dispute. Cash Back Rebates received under the Cash Back Loyalty Program may not be assigned or transferred to any third party except as expressly permitted by ID.me in writing. The sale, transfer, lending, exchange, pooling or barter of any Cash Back Rebates, other than by ID.me, is expressly prohibited. Any Cash Back Rebates assigned, sold, or otherwise transferred in violation of this Agreement may be forfeited or canceled. Any violation of the foregoing restrictions is grounds for account termination and forfeiture of all Cash Back Rebates.

5. Receiving Payment

To receive payment of accrued Cash Back Rebates and any other awards, you must establish and maintain an active account with ID.me with the information necessary to process your payment: a valid email address at which you are able to receive email, a valid postal address at which you are able to receive mail, your first and last name, and a password to protect your account. To maintain your account, you must update your information if it changes and have shopped via ID.me’s Website or Application (defined below) or have accrued Cash Back Rebates at any time within the last twelve (12) months. Cash Back Rebates (“Rebate Payment”) that are designated as “Available” in your account will be automatically disbursed to you when you have a minimum of $10.00 in your account by the end of a purchase period provided that ID.me has the necessary information on file to disburse such payments (PayPal account, mailing address, bank account information or other means identified by ID.me). ID.me pays members in U.S. dollars via PayPal by default, with other optional payment methods available for enrollment as provided by ID.me. Payments are disbursed according to the schedule provided in the FAQ on the ID.me Website. For cash back checks issued by ID.me, if your check expires, without being cashed or deposited, or if it’s returned to ID.me, you forfeit your right to the funds and ID.me is relieved of any further liability for payment of the forfeited funds. However, at its discretion, ID.me may elect to credit the forfeited funds to the user’s account, where they will be subject to inactive account maintenance charges described below. Pursuant to Inactive Accounts provision set forth below, new checks may not be issued to inactive accounts absent further action from the account owner to update their address, request a new check or otherwise provide necessary information required for ID.me to disburse payments. The minimum payment amount is $10.00, balances below $10.00 remain in your account for potential payment during the next payment period. ID.me. is not responsible for lost mail or any other event beyond ID.me’s control that would prevent the user from receiving their payment check. You are responsible for any taxes that may be due on ID.me Cash Back Rebates redeemed by you. Cash Back Rebates have no cash value until such time as you request and receive a payment. Prior to then, you shall have no property rights or other legal interest in ID.me Cash Back Rebates. You are responsible for reviewing your account balance on a regular basis, and for checking to ensure that all ID.me Cash Back Rebates has been properly credited to your account. If a discrepancy occurs in your ID.me Cash Back Loyalty Program account, such as a rebate not being credited to the account, then you must contact ID.me at help@ID.me,

6. Product Pricing

ID.me posts product pricing in various sections of the Website. While ID.me makes every effort to post accurate pricing, any individual product price displayed on ID.me is subject to change and the final price of a product is determined at the Merchant Partner’s website. ID.me is not liable for pricing errors.

7. Account Adjustments

Cash Back Rebates awarded to you are subject to adjustments for returns and cancellations, ID.me’s receipt of information and payments for such qualified purchases from Merchant Partners, and other events. ID.me reserves the right to make adjustments to user’s accounts at any time in accordance with this agreement. If you disagree with any adjustments made to your account, please contact ID.me at help@ID.me. ID.me is not responsible for changes to, or discontinuance of, any Merchant Partner, or any Merchant Partner’s withdrawal from the Cash Back Loyalty Program, or for any effect on accrual of Cash Back Rebates caused by such changes, discontinuance or withdrawal.

8. Inactive ID.me Shop Accounts

Note: this section only applies to ID.me Users who participate in the ID.me Shop cash-back program and whose accounts have been previously credited with cash back for purchases they made on third party sites while shopping through the ID.me Shop program. ID.me does not charge ID.me Users to use ID.me's Single Sign On service. Your ID.me Shop cash back account will be considered “inactive” if for twelve (12) consecutive months: 1) no activity has been conducted on your account, or; 2) if you fail to provide updated or accurate contact information to complete payments of your Cash Back Rewards. If your ID.me Shop cash back account is deemed “inactive”, ID.me reserves the right to debit your ID.me Shop cash back account balance two dollars ($2.00) per month to recover the cost of account maintenance until: (i) you reactivate your ID.me Shop cash back account by starting a shopping session via ID.me’s Website or Applications, completing a qualifying purchase, or updating your account with information, or; (ii) your ID.me Shop cash back account balance is zero. If the balance in your inactive ID.me Shop cash back account is or becomes zero, ID.me will cease to maintain your ID.me Shop cash back account’s Cash Back records and access to its Cash Back Loyalty Program and may, at its discretion, also close your ID.me Shop cash back account permanently. The inactive ID.me Shop cash back account maintenance charge will not cause your account balance to become negative and will not cause you to owe money to ID.me at any time.

9. Using ID.me Applications

Members can earn Cash Back Rebates on their purchases only by using the ID.me Website. ID.me plans to make available a limited number of software applications (“Applications”) to assist users in earning Cash Back Rebates without visiting the Website (for example, from mobile devices). If you use ID.me’s Applications you agree to use them only for your personal use and for accessing the Cash Back Rebate. ID.me reserves the right to update or discontinue its Applications at any time. You agree not to reverse engineer, decompile, disassemble, copy or otherwise derive the source code of ID.me Applications for any reason. You may not rent, sell or sublicense ID.me’s Applications without ID.me’s prior written consent. ID.me Applications and their underlying information and technology may not be exported or re-exported into any country to which the US has embargoed goods or to anyone on the U.S. Treasury Department’s list of Specially Designated Nationals or the U.S. Commerce Department’s Table of Deny Orders. By using ID.me’s Applications you represent and warrant that you are not located in, under the control of, or a national or resident of any such country or on any such list and that you will otherwise comply with all applicable export control laws. All rights to ID.me’s Applications are reserved by ID.me under the copyrights law of California.
