Terms & Conditions
June 10, 2010
Social Rewards, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Social Rewards”), owns and operates a service that enables customers of hotel and other loyalty programs to retransmit promotional offers to their social media contacts, tracking their activities and allowing them to earn credits in the form of loyalty program points (“Points”) for related transactions (the “Program”), administered through a website located at http://socialrewards.com and/or co-branded or customized sites (each, a “Site”, and together with the Program, the “Services”) operated on behalf of a loyalty marketing partner (each, a “Partner”).
Member and/or making use of the Services, you must indicate your acceptance of this Agreement during the registration process.
We reserve the right to modify this Agreement at any time and from time to time, and each such modification shall be effective upon posting on the Services. All material modifications will apply prospectively only. Your continued use of the Services following any such modification constitutes your agreement to be bound by and your acceptance of the Agreement as so modified. It is therefore important that you review this Agreement regularly. If you do not agree to be bound by this Agreement and to abide by all Applicable Law, you must discontinue use of the Services immediately. You may receive a copy of this Agreement by contacting us
Use of the Services and registration to be a Member is void where prohibited. By using the Services, you represent and warrant that (a) all registration information you submit is truthful and accurate; (b) you will maintain the accuracy of such information; (c) you are a United States resident 18 years of age or older; and (d) your use of the Services does not violate any Applicable Law. Social Rewards reserves the right to limit enrollment at any time. Corporations or other business entities are not eligible to become Members. Program membership and use is limited to one individual per Social Rewards account. Social Rewards allows only one email address per Member.
Program terms will vary depending on the Partner involved. As a condition of earning Points, you agree to comply at all times with the terms of all applicable Social Rewards and Partner offers, promotions, and programs, which terms are hereby incorporated by reference. In general, Members may earn Points by transmitting a Partner’s offer or promotion to their social media contacts using social media such as Twitter or Facebook. Social Rewards will generate unique URLs for promotional offers to be transmitted by Members, enabling Social Rewards to credit the Member’s account the applicable number of Points. Social Rewards is under no obligation to provide Members with any particular number of Point-earning opportunities or send messages to them. Social Rewards is not responsible and assumes no liability for changes or discontinuances of service from Partners which may affect offers or the accrual of Points. You are responsible for ensuring that Points earned are properly credited.
If you believe that Points have been earned but not properly credited, you may be required to submit documentation or other proof satisfactory to Social Rewards.
Points may be redeemed only for rewards as offered through Social Rewards and its Partners at the time of redemption. Points have no cash value. Social Rewards and its Partners are not responsible for lost or stolen rewards once issued. Rewards are subject to change at any time without notice. The number of Points required to redeem for a reward is subject to change at any time without notice. Points will be subtracted from a Member’s account once the redemption order is placed by the Member and captured by the Social Rewards system. Once used to claim a reward, Points will not be reinstated to the Member’s account. You agree to confirm that all information in your personal profile is up-to-date and accurate as of the time of any redemption.
4.Expiration; Inactive Accounts. ALL UNUSED POINTS WILL EXPIRE TWELVE (12) MONTHS AFTER ISSUANCE. SOCIAL REWARDS SHALL HAVE NO OBLIGATION TO NOTIFY OR REMIND MEMBERS OF THE UPCOMING EXPIRATION OF ANY UNUSED POINTS.
Social Rewards reserves the right to cancel or disable accounts and expire unredeemed Points in those accounts that are inactive for a period of twelve (12) consecutive months. Social Rewards reserves the right to limit the opportunities to earn Points available to Members while they remain inactive.
Members' right to use the Program is non-transferable. Points are non-transferable and shall be void if transferred. Points and/or rewards may not be bartered or sold. Social Rewards accounts and Points are not transferable upon death or as part of a domestic relations matter or otherwise by operation of law.
This Agreement, and any posted revision to this Agreement, shall remain in full force and effect while you use the Services or are a Member. You may terminate your Membership at any time, for any reason, by contacting us. Social Rewards may terminate your Membership at any time, for any or no reason, with or without prior notice or explanation, and without liability. Furthermore, we reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to deny, restrict, suspend, or terminate your access to all or any part of the Services at any time, for any or no reason, with or without prior notice or explanation, and without liability. Even after Membership is terminated, this Agreement will remain in effect, including, without limitation, Sections 7 through 21.

Social Rewards reserves the right to terminate or disable, at our sole discretion, any Social Rewards membership if we believe such Member has violated or acted inconsistently with the Program rules or intent of this Agreement. Disabling or termination of membership may result in a Member’s inability to redeem or earn Points and/or in the cancellation of all of the Member’s Points.
