1.2 You are advised to read these Terms and Conditions carefully before you purchase any vouchers from us. By making such a purchase, you hereby indicate that you agree and accept these Terms and Conditions and that you agree to abide by them.

1.3 We reserve the right to amend these Terms and Conditions at any time without notice to you by posting changes online. You are responsible to regularly review the information posted on the Website to obtain timely notice of such changes. Your continued purchase of vouchers will be deemed to constitute acceptance of the amended Terms and Conditions.

2.2 “Purchase” means the purchase of a Voucher through the ShopBack’s website or other online platforms.

3. Purchase and Payment of ShopBack vouchers

3.1 As a condition of Purchase, we reserve the right to send you administrative and promotional emails. We may also send you information regarding your account activity and purchases, as well as updates about our website and our services, the Voucher as well as any other promotional offers. You are able to opt-out of receiving our promotional e-mails or to unsubscribe such information at any time.

3.2 Purchase acceptance and completion of the contract between you and the Company will only be established upon the Company issuing a confirmation of the transaction of the Purchase to you. For the avoidance of doubt, we shall be entitled to refuse or cancel any purchase without giving any reasons for the same to you prior to the issue of the confirmation of the transaction. No concluded contract may be modified or canceled by you except with the agreement in writing of the Company and on terms that you shall indemnify the Company in full against all loss, costs, damages, charges, and/or expenses incurred by the Company as a result of the modification or cancellation, as the case may be.

3.3 All monetary transactions made by you on our website are handled and processed by our payment service provider in accordance with these Terms and Conditions. When a transaction takes place, payment is processed whereby (a) credit card/debit card / online banking information is held and (b) the price of the transaction is charged to the selected payment method immediately. A current, valid and accepted payment method (as may be updated periodically, “Payment Method”) must be provided to us for use of the Service. When using our Service, it is assumed that the stipulated price listed on each item on the Website and/or on the Merchant’s price list is mutually agreed upon transacting.

3.4 In the situation whereby payment is unsuccessful due to any reason (expiration, insufficient funds, or otherwise), you are responsible to edit your payment method. Failure to do will result in allowing us the authority to continue billing the pre-selected payment method. All responsibility to resolve any/all disputed with your financial institution, credit/debit card issuer, or provider of your selected Payment Method, are to be borne by you.

3.5 We sell vouchers to you as an agent for our Merchant partners. We do not guarantee that users or Merchants who are being dealt with will complete the transaction. Once you have made a purchase, you are entitled to redeem the Voucher Products from the specified Merchant. The details of the Merchant and Voucher Products will be stated on the Voucher. Any attempted redemption of a Voucher not consistent with this Agreement may render a Voucher void at our or the Merchant’s discretion.

3.6 You hereby acknowledge that the Merchants, and not ShopBack or its payment service provider, are:

3.6.1 the sellers or providers of their respective Voucher Products;

3.6.2 solely responsible for providing you with the Voucher Products; and

3.6.3 solely responsible for the redemption of any Voucher you have purchased.

3.7 Please take note that the Reproduction, sale, resale, or trade of a Voucher is strictly prohibited. Any attempt to carry out any of these will potentially void the Voucher at our discretion. Any entitlement to cashback will be at our discretion and will be stated at the time of purchase of the Voucher. Vouchers are redeemable in their entirety only and may not be redeemed incrementally. Any unredeemed portions of the Voucher may be forfeited, at the Merchant’s discretion.

3.8 It is at the discretion of the Merchant to determine whether the Voucher can be combined with any other promotions, vouchers, third party certificates, or coupons.

3.9 Neither we nor the Merchant is responsible for lost or stolen Vouchers or Voucher reference numbers.

3.12 You hereby acknowledge that the Merchants will have their own applicable terms and conditions in relation to the supply of Voucher Products for the redemption of the Voucher, in which you agree to and shall abide by those terms and conditions.

3.13 It is your responsibility to ensure that any products, services, or information available from the relevant Merchant meet your specific requirements.

3.14 Your failure to comply with these Terms and Conditions or the Terms of Use of ShopBack’s website or otherwise undertake any course of conduct that damages ShopBack in any way, may result in the suspension or cancellation of your use of our services, website, and/or the redemption of a Voucher.

3.15 We shall fully co-operate with any law enforcement authorities or court order requesting or directing us to disclose the identity or locate anyone who is in breach of these Terms and Conditions.

You will be in agreement with any form of prevailing tax, duties, fees, charges, and/or cost, however, denominated, which may be charged by the extent of the regional law at any time.

3.17 All transactions which are conducted are non-refundable. In cases whereby you have been wrongfully billed, a “case-to-case” basis approach will be taken in the presence of credible evidence of such. The Company holds full authority and discretion towards the outcome of such circumstances. All refunds will be processed in Cashback. Cash refund requests will not be considered.
