    Conditions of Use. Sponsor will attempt to credit Members' accounts with Points on a timely basis. However, each Member shall have the responsibility for monitoring their Point balances and ensuring that his or her Points are properly credited. Members must contact Member Support via the Member Program dashboard to request Points not credited accurately within 3 months of product purchase, otherwise such Points will no longer be valid or usable. Sponsor may audit the accuracy of Reward requests and may at any time request substantiation of information submitted by a Member. Sponsor has no liability for the accuracy of information provided by Member Program participants or the consequence thereof. Sponsor shall have no liability for any printing, production, typographical, mechanical or other errors in the Points summaries made available by Sponsor or its agents, for any delay or failure to credit Points to Member accounts, or for any failure to provide Member Program summaries as outlined in these Terms.

    Sponsor reserves the right to invalidate Points if it determines, in its sole discretion, that such Points were improperly credited to such Member or were obtained fraudulently or otherwise in violation of these Terms. Sponsor reserves the right to require proof of accrual of Points and reserves the right to delay the processing or redemption of any Points without notice, in order to assure compliance with these Terms. By participating in the Member Program, each Member is responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of his or her account and password and for restricting access to his or her account using reasonable care. Member agrees to accept responsibility for all activities that occur under Member's account or password. Without limiting any other remedies, Sponsor may suspend or terminate any account if Sponsor suspects, in its sole discretion, that any Member or other person has engaged in fraudulent activity in connection with this Member Program. Points do not constitute property, do not entitle a Member to a vested right or interest, and have no cash value. As such, Points are not redeemable for cash, transferable, or assignable for any reason. The sale, barter, transfer, or assignment of any accumulated Points, other than by Sponsor, is strictly prohibited. Any Points that Sponsor deems in its sole discretion to have been transferred, sold, bartered, or assigned in violation of these Terms may be confiscated and/or canceled.

    Participation in the Member Program is subject to these Terms, as well as policies and procedures that Sponsor may adopt or modify from time to time. Any failure to abide by these Terms or any policies or procedures implemented by Sponsor, any conduct detrimental to Sponsor, or any misrepresentation or fraudulent activities in connection with this Member Program, or failure to act in a manner consistent with federal, state, provincial, or local laws, regulations, institutional policies, or ordinances, may result, in addition to any rights or remedies available to Sponsor in law or equity, in the termination of membership in the Member Program, as well as forfeiture of any Points accrued to date, and any other benefits earned in connection therewith, in Sponsor’s sole discretion.

Responsibility for providing this warranty is solely the responsibility of the Member. Each redeeming Member is solely responsible for ensuring that his/her email and shipping address is correct in the Member Program records prior to redemption. Sponsor’s obligation regarding delivery of a Reward is satisfied upon sending the selected Reward to the email or shipping address for the Member contained in the Member Program records as of the date of redemption.
