Algenista Rewards Program Terms & Conditions
The Algenista Rewards Program is a loyalty program unique to www.algenist.com (the “Participating Website”) owned and controlled by Algenist LLC (the “Website Owner”) that is available only to registered users of Algenista Rewards located in the US (defined below) on the Participating Website (“Users”), and powered by Smile.io (“Platform Provider”). Users accessing and engaging with Algenista Rewards in accordance with these Terms & Conditions (the “Terms”) can earn Points (defined below) for activities described on the Participating Website. Points are then deposited into the User’s account and can be used to redeem rewards (“Rewards”) as outlined at www.algenist.com (the “Rewards Site”) and/or for the purposes of allowing Users to participate in rankings, earn recognition for certain activities and other program elements as determined by the Website Owner from time to time at its sole discretion (collectively the “Program Features”). The Rewards may change from time to time, without notice, at the sole discretion of the Website Owner. NO PURCHASE IS NECESSARY TO BECOME A USER. Algenista Rewards is void where prohibited by law.
Algenista Rewards is offered only in the United States, excluding, without limitation, all other US territories and overseas military installations (“US”) to individuals who are: (a) over 18 years of age as of the date of their first participation in Algenista Rewards; (b) legal US residents; and (c) possess a valid, active and personal Facebook, Twitter or other third-party social media account as directed by the Participating Website issued in that individual’s name for access to Algenista Rewards on the Participating Website. When registering for Algenista Rewards you agree to only register one (1) account for the purpose of accruing or earning Points. Employees (and all the members of the immediate families or households of such employees) of the Website Owner, and its affiliates are ineligible.
ALGENISTA REWARDS PARTICIPATION
Algenista Rewards allows Users to earn Points while using, viewing, interacting or responding to the Participating Website, in accordance with the rules of any promotion and the earning points provisions of these Terms. For the purposes of Algenista Rewards, “Points” mean those particular Algenista Rewards measurement increments, which can be used to redeem certain Rewards. Points and their values are: (a) determined by the Website Owner at its sole discretion; (b) subject to change without notice; (c) may vary among promotions; (d) are subject to approval; and (e) may be subject to a limit for the amount of points that may be earned during a defined period and/or for specific actions as determined at the sole discretion of the Website Owner. All Points, including but not limited to earning, saving and using, must be used in compliance with these Terms. Points are not transferable and Points cannot be earned after Algenista Rewards is terminated, as set forth below. Unless prohibited by law, unused Points are forfeited upon termination of Algenista Rewards. Participation in Algenista Rewards constitutes acceptance of these Terms as modified by the Website Owner from time to time. These Terms may change, in the Website Owner’s sole discretion, with or without notice to any User. The Platform Provider shall not be liable to any User or Website Owner for any changes in the Terms. If a change occurs, the User’s continued participation in Algenista Rewards shall constitute agreement to the changes. A User may terminate participation by notifying the Website Owner at firstname.lastname@example.org, and upon such termination the User may use Points accumulated up to the date of termination. A User may have only one identity that can be used to accrue Points for the Participating Website’s promotions. Any User or person who tries to use more than one user account, user ID or create more than one identity to obtain more Points shall be disqualified in the Website Owner’s sole discretion and all Points associated with such accounts, user IDs or other identities will be canceled immediately.
Subject to change without notice, Users may earn a certain number of Points for particular activities as those Point-earning activities are fully described in the program overview at www.algenist.com or through a particular promotion through which a User is invited to participate. Points and point-earning activities shall be reflected on the Participating Website. Points will be deposited into a User’s account by a commercially reasonable time after they are earned. Any inquiries regarding Points not correctly deposited must be received by the Website Owner within ten (10) business days of the date of alleged accrual of Points. Points are not transferable.
Users are eligible to receive credit (“Points”) on the User’s account for qualifying purchases made by the User (“Qualifying Purchases”, as defined below), that are made online at the Participating Website or by phone at 877.650.1837. All Qualifying Purchases are subject to verification by the Website Owner (whether made online or by phone) before being credited to a User’s account. Custom priced orders are not eligible to earn points. The Qualifying Purchase amount is the amount paid at checkout after application of all promotions, coupons and Rewards redemption. Amounts spent on taxes, shipping, and delivery charges do not count toward earning Points.
Depending upon the Reward earned, either the User will receive the Reward from the Website Owner or from the Platform Provider directly. If a User has a problem with their Reward, they can contact the Website Owner at email@example.com.
Algenista Rewards may terminate at any time at the Website Owner’s sole discretion. Notice of termination shall be provided to Users in the manner the Website Owner deems reasonable, including but not limited to, posting such notice on the Participating Website, e-mail, Facebook or other social media. Points may expire, subject to applicable law. Users must redeem and use all Points before expiration or the effective date of termination. However, notice of early termination shall not be provided for any actions, petitions or adjudications associated with bankruptcy, insolvency, assignment or material business interruptions of the Website Owner, or the Platform Provider.
All federal, state and local laws and regulations apply. Taxes on Rewards if any, are the User’s sole responsibility. Again, Points are not transferable. Once a User accumulates $600 (US dollars) worth of Points, whether or not those Points are redeemed and used for Rewards or accumulated over an extended period of time, the User may be required to complete an Affidavit and Release, with Points subject to forfeiture if not returned within the stated time.
By participating in Algenista Rewards, Users agree to be bound by these Terms and by the decisions of the Website Owner, which are final on all matters pertaining to this Algenista Rewards. Algenista Rewards is governed by, and these Terms shall be construed and interpreted pursuant to, the laws of the State of California, without resort to its principles of conflicts of law. All federal, state and local laws and regulations apply. The Website Owner and all entities involved in conducting Algenista Rewards, reserve the right in their sole discretion to limit participation in Algenista Rewards, assess varying Point values to Point earning opportunities, and to terminate or disqualify any User’s involvement in Algenista Rewards. The Website Owner and Platform Provider are not responsible for the inability of a User to accept, redeem and/or use Rewards for any reason, including any third-party’s terms and conditions and/or the terms of business and operations for a particular entity. Normal Internet access and usage charges imposed by a User’s online service shall apply.
