Waybate Cash Back Shopping Program
Waybate.com ("Waybate") offers a service that allows users to earn cash back on purchases made at associated stores. Joining and using Waybate is free and simple, requiring only your email address and a password to get started. Waybate does not sell or rent your personal information to third parties, and Waybate does not 'spam' its users. Waybate does not install or require you to install software on your computer.

Please read this complete User agreement ("Agreement") for full details on the Waybate Cash Back (Rebate) Shopping Program ("Program"). We think you will agree that Waybate offers the smartest way to shop online or in-store.
Becoming a User
By enrolling as a User in the Program ("User"), or by utilizing any of Waybate' shopping applications ("Applications"), you agree to be bound by this Agreement. Enrollment as a User is simple: you must provide an email address so Waybate can inform you when money or other rewards are credited to your account. Users must be at least eighteen years old and agree not to use the Program for any illegal or fraudulent activity. Please be aware that participation in the Program and the opportunity to earn cash back are offered at the sole discretion of Waybate, and Waybate has the right to change this Agreement in whole or in part, at any time, with or without notice.
Earning Cash Back
Earning back a portion of your purchases as cash back ("Cash Back") is straightforward. Choose a store, product, coupon or other offer displayed on Waybate.com or an Waybate application, click the accompanying shopping link to be directed to an associated store's website ("Affiliate Store"), and complete a purchase to earn Cash Back on your net purchase amount. You may also earn Cash Back on purchases made 'in-store' at a limited number of stores by presenting an Waybate coupon at time of check out. Such stores and coupons are clearly identified on Waybate.com. Specific Cash Back amounts vary by store and product category and are provided in detail at Waybate.com. Please note that the net purchase amount excludes taxes, fees, shipping, gift-wrapping, discounts or credits, returns or cancellations, and extended warranties.
Certain Affiliate Stores exclude a limited number of products and purchases from the Program. Waybate does its best to minimize and maintain an up-to-date list of exclusions on Waybate.com. Additionally, to earn Cash Back, you must complete your purchase during the same shopping session you start after clicking on the Waybate link. If you visit other sites before completing your purchase or use coupons not provided by Waybate, your purchase might be associated with a service other than Waybate and you might not earn cash back on your purchase. If you disable 'cookies' on your computer you will not be able to earn Cash Back as cookies are used to authenticate the user and be certain Cash Back is assigned to the User account.

Protecting Your Information
Use of Shopping Cart/Card-Linked-Offer Services
As a User of Waybate, you will be able to purchase certain products from certain Affiliate Stores using (a) the Waybate shopping cart service (the "Shopping Cart"), a free express online checkout service provided by an Waybate affiliate, or (b) the credit-card-linked offer service (the "CLO"; and with the Shopping Cart, each a "Service"), a method that will allow some of your offline purchases with certain Affiliate Stores to qualify for certain Waybate rewards. The Services are separate (a user can use the Shopping Cart without participating in CLO or vice versa), but we believe both aspects of the Service will enhance your overall shopping experience.
1. License to the Service. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, Waybate grants you a limited, non-exclusive, and revocable license to access and use the Service. Waybate (or its affiliate) reserves the right to change, upgrade or discontinue the Service or any feature of the Service at any time, with or without notice.
2. Merchandise Shipping, Exchange and Return Policies. A product purchased using the Service is covered by the applicable Affiliate Store's return, exchange and shipping policies. With respect to the Shopping Cart, while Waybate will obtain the shipping cost for you during the checkout process, these policies will not be available for review on the Waybate Site during the checkout process. They are, however, available on the respective Affiliate Store's own website should you wish to review them. With respect to CLO, transactions may be subject to the Affiliate Store's offline policies, which will not be available for review on the Waybate Site during the checkout process.
3. Personal Information and Processing. By using the Service, certain information about you such as payment information and billing and shipping address is provided to Waybate in order to complete transactions with Affiliate Stores, and you authorize Waybate to process and complete payment transactions on your behalf. You also authorize Waybate and the Service to store such purchase information including, without limitation, your credit card number, for future purchases and transaction-matching purposes.
7. Termination of Service. Waybate reserves the right, at any time, to modify or discontinue offering the Service in its sole discretion. If you are dissatisfied with any aspect of the Service at any time, your sole and exclusive remedy is to cease using the Service and/or provide User comments to Waybate. You agree that Waybate will not be liable to you or to any third party for any modification, suspension, or termination of the Service.

Waybate does not install or require you to install any software to access the Cash Back Shopping Program. Users can earn Cash Back on their purchases by using only the Web site Waybate.com. Waybate plans to make available a limited number of Applications to assist users in earning Cash Back without visiting Waybate.com (for example, from mobile devices or in-store).

Inactive User Accounts & Termination of Usership
Usership in the Waybate program is free: there is no charge to be a User or to earn and receive Cash Back. If your account is inactive for more than twelve (12) consecutive months, Waybate reserves the right to debit your Waybate account balance two dollars ($2.00) per month to recover the cost of account maintenance until (i) you reactivate your account by starting a shopping session via Waybate.com or Waybate' Applications, completing a qualifying purchase, or updating your account information (providing a valid name, email and mailing address), or (ii) your account balance is zero. If the balance in your inactive account is or becomes zero, Waybate will close the account permanently and cease to maintain your account records and Program access.

The determination of whether or not a purchase made through an Waybate Affiliate Store qualifies for Cash Back is at the sole discretion of Waybate.
