EBATES IN-STORE CASH BACK TERMS AND CONDITIONS AND PRIVACY STATEMENT
Ebates Inc. (“Ebates”) offers a service enabling you to enroll a credit card in order to earn cash back or other rewards or benefits when you make qualifying transactions at participating merchants (“Service”).
You accept these terms when you enroll a credit card in the Service. Ebates may add to, change, or remove any part of these terms from time to time. If Ebates changes any material terms that would have a material adverse effect on your rights as they are presented to you in these terms, Ebates will notify you via email or through other reasonable electronic means. Your continued participation in the Service, including receiving cash back or other rewards or benefits when you make a qualifying transaction at participating merchants, constitutes your acceptance of any changes to these terms.
To receive cash back or other rewards or benefits through the Service, you must enroll a valid, eligible credit card with the Service. Ebates leverages the transaction matching technology provided by the Rakuten Card Linked Offer Network, Inc. (“RCLON”) and, together with Ebates, “we” or “us” to provide you the Services. By enrolling a card in the Service, you agree that your payment card network (e.g., MasterCard, American Express, Visa) may monitor transactions on your enrolled card at participating merchants and share Transaction Data (defined below) with us for the purposes of determining whether you have made a qualifying purchase and providing you targeted offers. “Transaction Data” means merchant name, merchant location or other store identifier, transaction date, transaction amount, the last 4 digits of your credit card, and any other information that the payment card network may make available to us in connection with your qualifying purchase.
You may remove your credit cards from the Service at any time by visiting https://www.ebates.ca/member/wallet. When you do so, we will no longer receive future Transaction Data associated with your credit card, but we will retain historical Transaction Data for a legally allowed time period to track cash back or other rewards or benefits due under the Service and for account management and customer service purposes.
Card and Transaction Eligibility
The Service is limited to credit cards only. Payment cards that are not eligible for use with the Service include, without limitation, debit cards, corporate and purchasing cards, government-administered prepaid cards and insurance prepaid cards.
Not all merchant locations or transactions with your enrolled credit card may be eligible for cash back or other rewards or benefits, including payments made through third-party digital wallets or payment apps other than Apple Pay®, and other transactions not processed through the payment card network’s own system.
Data Sharing and Usage
In order to operate the Service, we will share and use credit card and Transaction Data in order to:
- Provide information about your enrolled card to payment card networks so they may monitor transactions on your card at participating merchants.
- Receive Transaction Data from payment card networks for enrolled cards at participating merchants in order to determine qualifying transactions and provide you with cash back or other rewards or benefits. Such data may also be used to target offers that may be of interest to you in the future.
- Analyze Transaction Data to create anonymous performance reports that may be shared with publishers, merchants, and their agents. These analyses may also be used to support general marketing to encourage consumers to enroll in the Service.
- Provide Transaction Data to participating merchants or their agents in order to validate qualifying transactions and assess the results of specific campaigns.
Information Disclosed for Our Protection and the Protection of Others
We cooperate with government and law enforcement officials and private parties to enforce and comply with the law. We will disclose any information about you to government or law enforcement officials or private parties as we, in our sole discretion, and in accordance with the law, reasonably believe necessary or appropriate to respond to claims and legal process (including but not limited to subpoenas), to protect the property and rights of Ebates or a third party, to protect the safety of the public or any person, or to prevent or stop activity we reasonably believe to be, or pose a risk of being, illegal or legally actionable activity, or as otherwise permitted or required by law.
