- REWARDS PROGRAMS
Overview. InMarket may offer rewards programs under which you may earn points that can be redeemed for rewards (each a “Program”). Not all of our Site/Apps include a rewards program, and Programs may include Additional Terms. To participate a Program, you must be a legal resident of the 50 United States or the District of Columbia (or a resident of a jurisdiction where your participation is legal pursuant to the terms hereof and does not create any liability or registration, bonding, tax or other affirmative obligation for us), and agree to this Agreement. All Programs are void where prohibited by law. Additional Terms may apply to your participation in activities allowing you to earn points (“Activities”). InMarket may limit or restrict your ability to participate in a Program in its sole discretion and may void your points and any rewards or potential rewards you have accumulated in a Program if you do not comply with the Agreement or any applicable Additional Terms. You agree to abide by the final and binding decisions of InMarket regarding a Program and your participation in it. InMarket may change, suspend or cancel a Program at any time without notice including any points you may have accrued. InMarket further has the right to end a Program by providing 6 months notice to the e-mail address you provided when you registered for a Program or last updated your account.
Registration. To participate in a Program and redeem points, you must register with the applicable Site/App. Only one account is permitted per person. To redeem and receive rewards, you may be required to provide your real name, phone number, mailing address, e-mail address, Social Security number for tax purposes and other information. Other personal information may be needed for certain rewards such as airline mileage account numbers for an airline miles reward. InMarket reserves the right to verify this information and suspend any account with fraudulent or multiple registered accounts per person. You are responsible for keeping your personal information current.
Earning Points. You can earn points in a Program by participating in Activities. For example, an Activity may require you to visit a particular store. If you choose to participate and follow the instructions associated with the Activity, you will be awarded the points associated with completing that Activity. Another activity may require you to scan a barcode on a particular product in a store. If you scan the product and follow the instructions associated with the Activity, you will be awarded the points associated with completing the activity. However, there may be limitations on Activities and rewards. For example, InMarket may at any point during a Program:
- change or limit your ability to participate in certain Activities,
- change or limit the allowable frequency of Activities,
- change or limit the number of points you can earn for an Activity,
- change or limit the number of total points you can earn per time period, or
- change the Activities and rewards that are available or the number of points required for a particular reward.
You must use the applicable Site/App to participate in Activities and earn points. Any Activities requiring barcode scanning and/or being physically located in a certain place must be bona fide scans of the actual product in that place and must occur in the specific place, as applicable. You must not use any method to scan or transmit an artificial scan or to falsify your location in order to attempt to meet the requirements of the Activity. You must not use any “bot,” simulator, macro, cheat code or other automated means of participating in Activities or a Program or to earn points. You may not use the program with any device that has been jailbroken, rooted, hacked, or otherwise do not have original equipment manufacturers’ operating systems. You may not register or use more than one account for any reason such as to avoid restrictions or other limitations on Activities, points, rewards or a Program. InMarket reserves the right to withhold points and rewards and/or terminate the account of any user suspected of activities that violate this Agreement or are unlawful. Points earned are only valid for redemption within a Program.
Redeeming Your Points for Rewards / Point Restrictions. Points that you have earned can be redeemed for rewards offered in a Program pursuant to its terms. If there is a particular reward offered that you would like to receive, you should redeem your points for that reward as soon as possible because supplies may be limited and the Program may be discontinued at any time in our sole discretion. Rewards are awarded on a first-come, first-served and while-supplies-last basis. In addition, your current balance of points and any rewards or potential rewards expire if, for a 45 day period, you do not successfully complete an Activity or redeem points for a reward. If you redeem your points for a reward and InMarket determines that the reward was out of stock or unavailable for whatever reason, InMarket will “refund” the points that you exchanged for the reward, and this “refund” will constitute an event in connection with your account, resetting the 45 period during which you have to successfully complete an Activity or redeem points for a reward (or else your points will expire).
You agree to sign an affidavit, release of liability, publicity release or similar agreement if requested by InMarket prior to receiving your reward. Rewards are provided “as is” with no warranty or guarantee, either express or implied by InMarket (see “Disclaimer of Warranties” below). Points are not your personal property, and are not descendible, may not be inherited, bartered or sold to any third party. You cannot transfer points or have rewards sent to any third party (except for Charitable Donations – defined and described below). Points may not be redeemed with InMarket for money or exchanged with any third party for money. The only way to use points is to redeem them for Program rewards to be sent to yourself, or to make a Charitable Donation of your points (see below). Products made available as rewards may be refurbished products. You agree that you will not re-sell any rewards. Once you order a reward, it cannot be cancelled by you nor can you return your reward for a refund of points. You are solely responsible for all federal, state and local taxes and any other costs or expenses of accepting and using the reward, unless InMarket specifically states otherwise in writing in connection with the reward. Some rewards may have age eligibility requirements. InMarket reserves the right to verify your eligibility qualifications prior to fulfilling a reward.
Delivery of Rewards. Rewards will be e-mailed to your e-mail address or mailed to your U.S. postal address, as applicable, that you provided when you registered for a Program or last updated your Program account. No rewards will be shipped to P.O. Boxes, APO (Army Post Office) or FPO (Fleet Post Office) addresses, or destinations outside the 50 United States or District of Columbia. E-mailed rewards are sent within approximately 7 days from the date your order is processed, unless the Site/App states a different schedule or the particular reward you ordered is limited in quantity, backordered, or out of stock. For users on the Android platform, each user must have the ability to receive SMS text messages to verify the account (and will be responsible for any carrier charges for such SMS text messages) for account registration points, referral points, and reward redemptions. Rewards shipped via postal mail will be shipped within approximately 8 to 12 weeks from the date your order is processed, unless the Site/App states a different schedule or the particular reward you ordered is limited in quantity, backordered, or out of stock. InMarket is not liable for any damages to, losses of or delays in any shipments. Rewards that are undeliverable for whatever reason (including because your Program account information is incorrect) will not be re-sent and are forfeited, and the points will not be refunded. After ordering a reward, you may receive a confirmation e-mail with an order number, which you should retain for your records. If you contact InMarket in the future about your reward order, you may be required to provide your order number.
Charitable Donations. You may choose to contribute your points to a charity, in which case InMarket will convert your points to a cash value determined by InMarket at that time (“Charitable Donation”) and transfer it to the charity as part of an annual transfer (see below). InMarket will donate a minimum of $100 annually to each charity listed in the reward program schedule of rewards regardless of total points contributed. You agree not to request or obtain any money in exchange for your donation. After you make a Charitable Donation, it cannot be cancelled or refunded. InMarket’s corresponding payment to the charity are made based on the total points contributed from all users from September 1st through August 31st of each year, and will be transferred to the charity by October 30th. If the charity you choose is no longer available at the time the transfer is scheduled to take place, or if the donation is undeliverable then your Charitable Donation will be transferred to a charity of InMarket’s choosing. The InMarket Parties (as defined below) are not liable for any losses or delays of any payments to charities.
Third Party Trademarks. The names of individuals, groups, companies, products and services related to a Program and Program rewards are used for identification purposes only and may be protected by the intellectual property rights, such as trademarks and copyrights, of their respective owners. The mention of any individual, group or company, or the inclusion of a product or service within a Program or as a Program reward does not imply any association with or endorsement by such individual, group or company or the manufacturer or distributor of such product or service and, except as otherwise indicated, no association or endorsement is intended or should be inferred.

Some of the Push Messages may be related to your location or to preferences pertaining to a Program or Activities. Standard messaging, data and other fees may be charged by your carrier. For users on the Android platform, each user must have the ability to receive SMS text messages to verify the account (and will be responsible for any carrier charges for such SMS text messages) for account registration points, referral points, and reward redemptions. Fees and charges will appear on your mobile bill or be deducted from your pre-paid balance. Your carrier may prohibit or restrict certain Push Messages and certain Push Messages may be incompatible with your carrier or mobile device. Contact your carrier with questions regarding these issues. As applicable, instructions regarding how to opt-out of Push Messages will be disclosed in connection with Push Messages (typically requiring you to respond with certain keywords such as “STOP,” “CANCEL,” “END,” “UNSUBSCRIBE” or “QUIT,”).

If you believe that your work has been copied in a way that constitutes copyright infringement, please provide InMarket’s copyright agent the following information required by the Online Copyright Infringement Liability Limitation Act of the DMCA, 17 U.S.C. § 512: (a) a physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed; (b) identification of the copyright work claimed to have been infringed, or, if multiple copyrighted works at a single online site are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works at that site; (c) identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity and information reasonably sufficient to permit us to locate the material; (d) information reasonably sufficient to permit us to contact the complaining party; (e) a statement that the complaining party has a good-faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and (f) a statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that the complaining party is authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.
It is often difficult to determine if your intellectual property rights have been violated or if the DMCA requirements have been met. We may request additional information before we remove any infringing material. If a dispute develops as to the correct owner of the rights in question, we reserve the right to remove your content along with that of the alleged infringer pending resolution of the matter.

- DISPUTE RESOLUTION / ARBITRATION
Certain portions of this section are deemed to be a “written agreement to arbitrate” under the Federal Arbitration Act. You and InMarket agree that this section satisfies the “writing” requirement of the Federal Arbitration Act.
Try to Resolve Disputes and Excluded Disputes. Except for InMarket’s rights to limit, suspend or terminate your account as set forth in this Agreement, if any controversy, allegation, or claim arises out of or relates to the Site/App, Content, your Submissions, or this Agreement (a “Dispute”), or to any of InMarket’s actual or alleged intellectual property rights including those actions set forth in subsection (E) (an “Excluded Dispute”), then you and we agree to send a written notice to the other party providing a reasonable description of the Dispute or Excluded Dispute, along with a proposed resolution of it. Our notice to you will be sent to you based on the most recent contact information that you provided under your account. If no such information exists or if such information is not current, then we have no obligation under this subsection (A). Your notice to us must be sent via fax, email, or registered mail to:
Name: InMarket Media LLC, Attention: Legal
Mailing address: 11111 Jefferson Blvd. #5243 Culver City, CA 90231-5243
E-mail address: legal@InMarket.com
For a period of 60 days from the date of receipt of notice from the other party, InMarket and you will attempt to resolve the Dispute or Excluded Dispute, though nothing will require either you or InMarket to resolve the Dispute or Excluded Dispute on terms that you and InMarket, in each of our sole discretion, are not comfortable.
Forums for Alternative Dispute Resolution. If we cannot resolve a Dispute as set forth in subsection (A) within 60 days of receipt of the notice, then either you or we may submit the Dispute to formal arbitration in accordance with this subsection (B). If we cannot resolve an Excluded Dispute as set forth in subsection (A) within 60 days of receipt of the notice, then either you or we may submit the excluded dispute to formal arbitration only if you and InMarket consent, in a writing signed by you and InMarket, to have that Excluded Dispute subject to arbitration, in which case (and only in such a case), that Excluded Dispute will be deemed a “Dispute” for the remainder of this subsection (B).
Upon expiration of the applicable 60-day period and to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, a Dispute will be resolved solely by binding arbitration in accordance with the then-current Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”). If the Dispute has a claimed value of less than $250,000, then the arbitration will be heard and determined by a single neutral arbitrator who is a retired judge or a lawyer with not less than 15 years’ experience as a practicing member of the bar in the substantive practice area related to the Dispute, who will administer the proceedings in accordance with, if applicable, the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes. If the Dispute has a claimed value of more than $250,000, or if InMarket elects in its sole discretion to bear the costs of arbitration in excess of those that would occur for a proceeding before a single neutral arbitrator, then the arbitration will be heard and determined by a three-member panel, with one member selected by each party and the third (who will chair the panel) selected by the two party-appointed members or by the AAA in accordance with the AAA Commercial Arbitration Rules. The arbitrator or arbitration panel, as applicable, will apply applicable law and the provisions of this Agreement, will determine any Dispute according to the applicable law and facts based upon the record and no other basis, and will issue a reasoned award. If you and InMarket do not both consent to the arbitration of an Excluded Dispute as set forth in the immediately preceding paragraph, then this paragraph and the remainder of this subsection (B) will not apply to the Excluded Dispute.
If a party properly submits the Dispute to the AAA for formal arbitration and the AAA is unwilling or unable to set a hearing date within 60 days of the filing of a demand for arbitration, then either party can elect to have the arbitration administered by the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services Inc. (“JAMS”) using JAMS’ Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures, or by any other arbitration administration service that you and InMarket consents to in writing. The substantive practice area requirements for the arbitrator and the $250,000 threshold for the number of arbitrators assigned to the Dispute set forth in the paragraph above for the AAA arbitration will also apply to any such arbitration under JAMS or another arbitration service.
You can obtain AAA and JAMS procedures, rules, and fee information as follows:
AAA: 800.778.7879 (http://www.adr.org)
JAMS: 949.224.1810 (http://www.jamsadr.com)
Nature, Limitations, and Location of Alternative Dispute Resolution. In arbitration, as with a court, the arbitrator must honor the terms of this Agreement and can award the prevailing party damages and other relief (including attorneys’ fees). HOWEVER, WITH ARBITRATION: (A) THERE IS NO JUDGE OR JURY, (B) THE ARBITRATION PROCEEDINGS AND ARBITRATION OUTCOME ARE SUBJECT TO CERTAIN CONFIDENTIALITY RULES, AND (C) JUDICIAL REVIEW OF THE ARBITRATION OUTCOME IS LIMITED. All parties to the arbitration will have the right, at their own expense, to be represented by an attorney or other advocate of their choosing. If an in-person arbitration hearing is required, then it will be conducted in the “metropolitan statistical area” (as defined by the U.S. Census Bureau) where you are a resident at the time the Dispute is submitted to arbitration. You and we will pay the administrative and arbitrator’s fees and other costs in accordance with the applicable arbitration rules; but if applicable arbitration rules or laws require InMarket to pay a greater portion or all of such fees and costs in order for this subsection to be enforceable, then InMarket will have the right to elect to pay the fees and costs and proceed to arbitration. Discovery will be permitted pursuant to the applicable arbitration rules. The arbitrator’s decision must consist of a written statement stating the disposition of each claim of the Dispute and must provide a statement of the essential findings and conclusions on which the decision and any award (if any) is based. Judgment on the arbitration decision and award (if any) may be entered in or by any court that has jurisdiction over the parties pursuant to Section 9 of the Federal Arbitration Act.
Limited Time to File Claims. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, IF YOU OR WE WANT TO ASSERT A DISPUTE (BUT NOT A EXCLUDED DISPUTE) AGAINST THE OTHER, THEN YOU OR WE MUST COMMENCE IT (BY DELIVERY OF WRITTEN NOTICE AS SET FORTH IN SUBSECTION (A)) WITHIN ONE YEAR AFTER THE EVENTS GIVING RISE TO THE DISPUTE — OR IT WILL BE FOREVER BARRED.
Injunctive Relief. The foregoing provisions of this subsection will not apply to any legal action taken by InMarket to seek an injunction or other equitable relief in connection with, any loss, cost, or damage (or any potential loss, cost, or damage) relating to the Site/App, any Content, your Submissions and/or InMarket’s intellectual property rights, InMarket’s operations, and/or InMarket’s products or services.
Small Claims Matters Are Excluded from Arbitration Requirement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, either of us may bring a qualifying claim of Disputes (but not Excluded Disputes) in small claims court.
No Class Action Matters. Disputes will be arbitrated only on an individual basis and will not be consolidated with any other arbitrations or other proceedings that involve any claim or controversy of any other party. But if, for any reason, any court with competent jurisdiction or any arbitrator selected pursuant to subsection (B) holds that this restriction is unconscionable or unenforceable, then our agreement in subsection (B) to arbitrate will not apply and the Dispute must be brought exclusively in court pursuant to subsection (H).
Federal and State Courts in Los Angeles. Except to the extent that arbitration is required in subsection (B), and except as to the enforcement of any arbitration decision or award, any action or proceeding relating to any Dispute or Excluded Dispute may only be instituted in state or federal court in Los Angeles County, California. Accordingly, you and InMarket consent to the exclusive personal jurisdiction and venue of such courts for such matters.
- SEVERABILITY OF AGREEMENT
If any provision of this Agreement is found by a court or other binding authority to be invalid, you agree that every attempt will be made to give effect to the parties’ intentions as reflected in that provision, and the remaining provisions contained in this Agreement will continue in full force and effect.
- APPLICABLE LAW
