Privacy and Security
Personally identifiable information
The information you provide us in your membership application and further information that you have supplied that is accessible by you in the My Rewards section of the Website includes personally identifiable information (such as your name, your email address, your residential or postal address, etc.) Your personal information may be securely shared with a third party if required or necessary:
for us to process a transaction that you have requested; or
for us to deliver (or not deliver where you may have opted-out) a feature or service to you that relies on a third-party.
Sometimes you may be directed to a third party’s web site where an advertiser or market research company asks you to provide your personal information. It is your choice whether to provide your personal information to that third party. We cannot be held responsible for the privacy practices or actions of any third party.
The profile information you provide in the My Rewards section of the Website is information about you (such as your age, gender, postcode, education, background, shopping preferences, habits, etc.). By providing this profile information, you consent to us using such information to ensure that you receive reward information, mail and surveys appropriate to you, to allow our clients to reach the particular type of people we and our clients are targeting with their advertisement or survey, to communicate with you and as required for us to provide our Services.
We may de-identify the information in your Account and your Rewards Profile and share it with third parties on an Aggregate Basis. For the purposes of this clause, 'Aggregate basis' means the information of many members is combined together to form one measurement or quantity that cannot be used to identify any particular person. For example, a client may be told that their advertising campaign is going to be received by 5,000 members between 21 and 40 years of age, and received by 7,000 members between 41 and 55 years of age.
We will take all reasonable precautions and measures to maintain the security and privacy of your personal information. This includes using the very best in hardware, software, and security practices available to us. However, due to the nature of the Internet and the nature of the systems and technology available at the current time, it is unfortunate that breaches of security are still possible. Therefore, we cannot guarantee that your information will be completely secure, and we cannot be held liable for any loss or damage arising out of a breach of security.
You must keep your Account password confidential at all times. You are responsible for all transactions made on the Website using your Account. We are not liable for any loss or damage arising out of the unauthorised use of your Account.
Communications from Us
General Correspondence and Administrative emails
When you join the Service you give us consent to send you emails, with or without any incentive or reward, that are necessary for us to continue to provide the Service to you. These emails (referred to as 'Service Emails') may include:
Verification or validation emails;
Important information or notices about the Service and your use of the Service;
Responses to a customer service enquiry you have made;
Notification or confirmation of any transaction you initiate; and
Requests for additional information from you.
Because Service Emails are required and necessary for us to provide the Service to you, the only way to unsubscribe from receiving Service Emails from us is to terminate your use of the Service by closing your Account and thereby cancelling your membership and access to the Services.
Cashrewards Newsletter and Advertising emails
When you join the Service you give us consent to send you information on ways to earn rewards, specific offers to earn rewards and commercial advertising messages via email and mobile phone, if you have supplied your mobile number details (referred to as ‘Cashrewards Newsletter’).
We may offer to you reward incentives for viewing the entire advertising email we send to you and clicking on the designated link in the advertising email (referred to as ‘Advertising Emails’). To be eligible to earn rewards for an advertising email you must click on the designated link within 10 days of the advertising email being sent by us.
Receiving the Cashrewards Newsletter and Advertising Emails are an optional part of the Service. Therefore, you may opt-out of receiving such communications at any time after your registration is complete. This can be done in the Communications Preferences under the Accounts Setting section of the Website.
After opting-out of receiving Cashrewards Newsletter and Advertising Emails, you must allow up to 10 days for your email address to be excluded from advertising email campaigns. This is because selection of the recipients for an advertising email campaign may take place well before the actual date the emails are sent.
We make no guarantee or representation as to the minimum number of advertising emails you will receive from us.
Your rewards account
To be eligible for and request Cashout, the total rewards accrued must equate to a cash value greater than or equal to $5.01, moving to $10.01 from 12th June 2017 (Minimum Value) and the Minimum Value must be accrued through reward incentives earned by your participation in the Services.
Any bonuses received as part of a sign-up promotion, refer a friend or other bonus promotions (Bonus Rewards) may be subject to additional terms and conditions as set out on the Website.
We reserve the right to change the Minimum Value at any time and where we do so we will provide you a minimum 30 days' notice prior to such change becoming effective.
Until your rewards balance reaches the Minimum Value, we are not liable to you for payment of any rewards. We reserve the right to decline your Cashout request including if we suspect there any fraudulent activities. Each Cashout request submitted by you is final and not reversible.
If you choose to cancel your Account, any rewards accrued by you are immediately and irreversibly forfeited. Any Cashout or outstanding and pending payments and rewards are immediately cancelled. Any payment that you would otherwise have been entitled to receive will remain our property and we will have no further obligation to make any payment to you.
Rewards obtained by fraud or deception
Where an amount of rewards has been credited to your account and we at any time have evidence or reason to believe that those rewards were credited to your account due to the fraudulent, deceptive or dishonest actions of you or any other person, we reserve the right to reverse the transaction by deducting from your account the same amount of rewards.
Cashback amounts incorrectly shown on site
We do not guarantee as to the accuracy of reward advertised as a cashback offer on the Website and the value of each cashback offer may be affected by: merchants increasing or decreasing the commission paid to us; . human error; or any bugs or glitches on the Website. Retailers may also withdraw from the Service with or without notice to us, in which case the cashback offers may not be available. The rewards accrued by you may also be less than the advertised rate on the Website. The rewards allocated to your account will in no circumstance be required to exceed the commission amount we receive from the applicable merchant store or their representative on account of the particular transaction.
Rewards credited due to error or computer software bug
If rewards are credited to your account due to a human or computer error, or if rewards are credited to your account due to the accidental or deliberate exploitation of a computer-programming bug by you or by anyone else, we reserve the right to adjust or reverse the transaction without notice.

At the time you make a request for redemption of your rewards, we reserve the right to request from you a copy of a proof of identification document, for account verification and security purposes, before approving your request for redemption or payment of rewards. If you are unable or elect not to provide a copy of a proof of identification document, we may deny your request for payment of rewards.

We will only approve and process a bank transfer for payment of rewards where the nominated bank account name is the same as, or in the case of a joint bank account, includes, the name under which your Account was registered.
If a payment of rewards by bank transfer that you request is processed as per the account details supplied by you, to the wrong bank account, we will not take any action to reverse the transaction, reprocess the transaction, or refund rewards to you.
If a bank transfer is rejected by the bank for any reason, we may charge to you an administration fee of $30.

Service and Service Facilities
Online Shopping and Register for Offers
In this clause 7.1. 'transaction' refers to any purchase, order, or action you initiate with a third party including ordering goods or services, or signing up to a service or membership, even if you make no payment for the goods, service, or membership.
The online shopping offers on the Website are made by third parties. You acknowledge that we act as a referral agent only and are not responsible for the quality of goods and/or services you receive from any third party.
We make an offer of a rewards incentive to you for making a transaction at any third party listed in the online shopping directory of the Website, but only if you make that transaction as an individual referred to the third party by us. The offer of rewards is made on the basis that the third party pays us a commission for referring you to that third party. We do our best to ensure that our offers of reward incentives are correct at the time of transaction, however we are unable to guarantee that our offers of reward incentives to you are accurate at the time of transaction.
To be eligible to receive rewards for making a transaction with a third party listed on the Website, you must:
Initiate the transaction by using a link to the third party on the Website, the Cashrewards Cashback notifier or in an email we send to you, and;
You must use that link before making the transaction, and;
You must use that link in the same web browsing session as when you make the transaction, and;
You must not use any other referral or tracking link for that third party between the time when you use our link and when you make the transaction, and;
When you make the transaction you must not use any coupon or voucher code that is not listed or advertised by this service, and;
Where stated, you must complete any other required actions including answering any questions asked; and
Where stated, you must comply with any other terms, conditions and requirements.
In some instances, certain products, services, or offerings are expressly excluded from the offer of rewards, and there may be particular terms, conditions or requirements that apply only to that offer. You should ensure that you fully understand any exclusions, terms, conditions, and requirements as displayed before proceeding with a transaction.
Subject to any valid Cashback Claim:
you acknowledge that we may elect not to credit you with rewards if the third party elects not to pay us commission for your purchase or transaction with that third party; and
we may elect not to credit you with rewards for a transaction you make when failure of any system such as an affiliate tracking system or cookie-based referral tracking system results in us not being paid by the third party for referring you.
We will not credit you with rewards, and we may deduct rewards already credited, for a transaction you make at a third party if you subsequently cancel the transaction or order, return the goods for refund or credit, or fail to pay for the order in full.
Your claim for rewards will be made on your behalf automatically using a cookie-based tracking system. If the cookie-based automatic claim system does not work at the time you make a transaction, you must make a claim for the rewards manually. For your online shopping rewards claim to be valid you must claim within 60 days of making the transaction. The information you supply at the time of making the claim must be accurate and correct. If you do not supply accurate and correct information, we may reject your claim for rewards. Additionally, some merchants will not accept any manual claims whatsoever and in this instance we are unable to claim for rewards on your behalf.
If you make a fraudulent or deceptive claim for rewards we will reject your claim, and we may deduct from your rewards account a cash penalty, or we may cancel your membership of the Service.
Rewards will be confirmed when the merchant confirms its validation requirements have been met. If the merchant does not provide confirmation, transactions will attain confirmed status when the merchant or third party pays the service for the transaction. We make no guarantees for payment of the reward to you until we have received payment from the merchant or third party.

We make no guarantee or representation as to the minimum or maximum number of offers that you will receive from us, however you may adjust your communications preferences, in order to reduce, increase or restrict the communications you receive from us, at any time, by logging into your account settings in the My account section of the Website.
