Each person is limited to one RewardMe Account with the Program. You promise to provide us with accurate, complete, and updated registration information about yourself.

If your use of the Services is prohibited by applicable laws, then you aren’t authorized to use the Services. We can’t and won’t be responsible for your using the Services in a way that breaks the law.
We make available the ability for you to earn rewards points (the “Rewards Points”) on your purchases completed with activated Offers (defined below) through https://www.reward.me/ and related mobile and software applications (the “Program”). Participation in the Program and the opportunity to earn Rewards Points are offered at our sole discretion and subject to your compliance with these terms, and the Rewards Point Program Policy. We reserve the right to change, modify and/or eliminate the Program and the terms applicable thereto at any time upon notice to you (which may be provided through the Services or by modifying these terms).
The current Program is not available to and should not be accessed or used by residents of the European Economic Area (“EEA”). You represent and warrant that you are an individual of legal age to form a binding contract (or if not, you’ve received your parent’s or guardian’s permission to use the Services and have gotten your parent or guardian to agree to these Terms on your behalf).
We may make available to you from time to time through the Services Rewards Point offers on certain third-party products and services (each, an “Offer”). After your RewardMe Account is linked to your email or credit card, you may activate Offers up to a maximum number (as shown in your RewardMe Account) at the same time, depending on the membership level of your RewardMe Account. You may activate or disable Offers at any time at your discretion, but the maximum number of Offers that can be activated at the same time is tied to your membership level. Please refer to our Membership Policy here for more details. After you activated an Offer in your RewardMe Account, you’ll be eligible to earn Rewards Point as described in such Offer when you complete a transaction with the merchant that is the subject of such Offer.
Rewards Point is earned on your net purchase amount, which excludes taxes, fees, shipping, gift-wrapping, discounts or credits, returns or cancellations, and extended warranties. Purchases of gift cards do not qualify for Rewards Point. Rewards Point amounts may contain exclusions in the terms of the applicable Offer. We may adjust or cancel any of your Rewards Point or terminate your participation in the Program if we, in its sole discretion, deems your activity under the Program as fraudulent, abusive, unethical, suspicious, deceptive, unauthorized, objectionable, or otherwise inconsistent with or in violation of these terms, the applicable Offer terms, Rewards Point Program Policy, any other applicable law or regulation. Please review these terms carefully.
The product or services you purchased through the Services are provided by third party merchants (the “Merchants”), and are governed by and subject to the applicable terms and policies of the Merchants, including applicable exchange, return, shipping, and dispute resolution policies. You agree that we are not agents, resellers, or in any way affiliated with any third party merchant, and merchants operate independently and are not under our control. Accordingly, your purchase of any product or services, and correspondence with, any merchant is solely between you and that merchant. We do not assume any liability, obligation or responsibility for any part of such purchase, such correspondence, offer or promotion. Your Rewards Point may be withdrawn due to order cancellation, return, or other changes to your order with third party merchant. Please note that the Program is solely sponsored and administered by RewardMe, and is in no way sponsored, endorsed or administered by, or associated with any Merchant that offer the products or services covered by the Offers made available in the Program. Any questions, comments or complaints regarding your Rewards Points or the Program should be directed to RewardMe.
As a condition of redeeming accrued Rewards Point in your RewardMe Account, you must: (i) establish and maintain an active RewardMe Account and comply with all the terms hereof; (ii) provide a valid email address that you own and are able to receive email; and (iii) link a valid email address or an active credit card that you own with your RewardMe Account.

You further agree to provide additional information we may reasonably request to verify your identity as a condition for receiving payment.
The Rewards Point earned in your RewardMe Account is not cash or cash equivalent and cannot be redeemed for cash. You may not transfer or exchange your earned Rewards Points to another individual unless otherwise required by applicable laws. Rewards Points can only be earned through the Offers under the Program, and cannot be paid or purchased with cash or cash equivalent. Redemption of the Rewards Points is non-cancellable and non-refundable, unless any cancellation/refund is approved by us on a case-by-case basis, or otherwise required by law. No interest, dividends or any other earnings on Rewards Point accumulated in your RewardMe account will accrue or be paid or credited to you.
Currently, we offer (i) certain gift cards issued by various third party merchants and/or (ii) for non-US users, certain cryptocurrency, cryptographic token, virtual currency or other digital asset (the “Cryptocurrencies”) offered by third parties (such as MDT token, or ME token), as options for you to redeem the Rewards Points earned in your RewardMe Account. In the future, we may offer other redemption options for your Rewards Points.
The minimum amount for redeeming a gift card is ten (10) U.S. dollars. Your redemption of Rewards Point in the form of gift cards is further subject to our Rewards Point Program Policy here. Gift cards are only available in digital form, not physical form Gift cards are subject to the terms and conditions of the gift card issuer, including potential expiration dates and whether any cash value may be refundable. Please read the applicable gift card terms and conditions carefully before using your Rewards Points to redeem such gift card. You may only use the gift cards with the applicable issuers pursuant to the applicable terms and conditions of such issuers. We are not responsible for providing any goods or services covered by any gift cards, or any lost or stolen gift cards, or any unauthorized use thereof. The issuer of a gift card is solely responsible for any and all damages, claims, losses, and costs suffered by you in connection with the redemption or use of such gift card, and for any unclaimed property liability arising from unredeemed gift card or portions thereof. Please note that the gift cards made available for redemption under the Program is purchased by RewardMe from the general market, and RewardMe is not in any way sponsored or endorsed by, or partnered or associated with, any issuer of such gift cards.
In our sole discretion, we may deduct Rewards Point amount from your account to make adjustments for returns and cancellations with respect to your purchases under the Program. Any such adjustments will be made in accordance with these terms, our Rewards Point Program Policy, the terms of the third party merchants, and any and all applicable laws, rules and regulations. The determination of whether a purchase made under an Offer qualifies for Rewards Point is at our sole discretion. It is your responsibility to check your RewardMe Account regularly to ensure that Rewards Point has been properly credited and paid and that your account balance is accurate. If you believe that Rewards Point has not been correctly credited to your account, you must contact our member services at email@example.com within thirty (30) days of the transaction. In addition, we may adjust or cancel any of your Rewards Point or terminate your participation in the Program if we, in its sole discretion, deems your activity under the Program as fraudulent, abusive, unethical, suspicious, deceptive, unauthorized, objectionable, or otherwise inconsistent with or in violation of these terms, Rewards Point Program Policy, any other applicable law or regulation. Our decisions are final. Should you disagree with any adjustments made to your RewardMe Account or payments made to you, please contact our member services at firstname.lastname@example.org within thirty (30) days of the transaction. After such thirty (30) days, your sole remedy is to withdraw from the Program.
The Rewards Point accumulated in your RewardMe Account do not have an expiration date and may remain in an active RewardMe Account indefinitely, provided that your RewardMe Account remains active and the Program has not been terminated pursuant to these terms and the Rewards Point Program Policy. A RewardMe Account is deemed inactive if there is no Qualifying Activity for twelve (12) consecutive months. “Qualifying Activity” in a RewardMe Account includes accruing Rewards Points through Offers or redeeming Rewards Points pursuant to these terms. Notwithstanding any term to the contrary, if a RewardMe Account is inactive for 6 consecutive months, we may close the account and delete any Rewards Point balance. Deleted Rewards Point cannot be reinstated. Please note, however, that if you have not redeemed the value in your Rewards Point for a certain period of time after such value was earned, applicable law may require us to remit such value to the state in which you were or are located, or the state in which our company is incorporated. This time period will vary from state to state; it may be as short as one year. Accordingly, please remember to redeem your Rewards Point in a timely manner. You release us from any liability in connection with its compliance with laws applicable in this regard.
You may be taxed on your receipt of gift cards and other payment or consideration (such as prizes from a sweepstakes or other promotions) depending on the tax laws of federal, state and local jurisdictions.

We’re always trying to improve our Services, so they may change over time. We may suspend or discontinue any part of the Services, or we may introduce new features or impose limits on certain features or restrict access to parts or all of the Services. We’ll try to give you notice when we make a material change to the Services that would adversely affect you, but this isn’t always practical. We reserve the right to remove any Content from the Services at any time, for any reason (including, but not limited to, if someone alleges you contributed that Content in violation of these Terms), in our sole discretion, and without notice.
The Services are currently free, but we reserve the right to charge for certain or all Services in the future. We will notify you before any Services you are then using begin carrying a fee, and if you wish to continue using such Services, you must pay all applicable fees for such Services.
RewardMe is also free to terminate (or suspend access to) your use of the Services or your account for any reason in our discretion, including your breach of these Terms. RewardMe has the sole right to decide whether you are in violation of any of the restrictions set forth in these Terms.

If you have deleted your account by mistake, contact us immediately at email@example.com – we will try to help, but unfortunately, we can’t promise that we can recover or restore anything.

From time to time RewardMe may offer rewards or incentives for referring others to the Services. For details of any current referral offers, please see our referral page. The referring user (“Referrer”) may refer individuals who are neither current customers of RewardMe nor registered users of the Services (“Referee”). A registered user is a person that already has an existing account with RewardMe. There is no limit to the number of referrals that Referrer can make, nor the cumulative rewards or incentives that the Referrer may receive through such special offer, unless otherwise indicated. Referrer can share his/her personal referral code with potential Referees, and will receive the stated reward or incentive for each Referee sent by the Referrer that completes the required action described in that specific offer (such as signing up for an account or making a purchase). All Referees must be first-time recipients of the new user offer, and multiple referrals to the same individual will be disregarded. RewardMe reserves the right to modify or terminate any special offers at any time and to revoke from Referrer and Referee the special offer at RewardMe’s discretion for any reason or for no reason whatsoever. If RewardMe determines that Referrer or Referee is attempting to obtain unfair advantage or otherwise violate the terms or spirit of such special offer, RewardMe reserves the right to (a) revoke any rewards or incentives issued to either Referrer or Referee and/or (b) charge the Referrer or Referee for any rewards or incentives (1) used by Referrer or Referee prior to such revocation or (2) issued by RewardMe to any ineligible Referrer or Referee. All special offers are subject to any other terms, conditions and restrictions set forth on the Services or presented in connection with the special offer.
RewardMe and its licensors, suppliers, partners, parent, subsidiaries or affiliated entities, and each of their respective officers, directors, members, employees, consultants, contract employees, representatives and agents, and each of their respective successors and assigns (RewardMe and all such parties together, the “RewardMe Parties”) make no representations or warranties concerning the Services, including without limitation regarding any Content contained in or accessed through the Services, and the RewardMe Parties will not be responsible or liable for the accuracy, copyright compliance, legality, or decency of material contained in or accessed through the Services or any claims, actions, suits procedures, costs, expenses, damages or liabilities arising out of use of, or in any way related to your participation in, the Services. The RewardMe Parties make no representations or warranties regarding suggestions or recommendations of services or products offered or purchased through or in connection with the Services. THE SERVICES AND CONTENT ARE PROVIDED BY REWARDME (AND ITS LICENSORS AND SUPPLIERS) ON AN “AS-IS” BASIS, WITHOUT WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, NON-INFRINGEMENT, OR THAT USE OF THE SERVICES WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR-FREE. SOME STATES DO NOT ALLOW LIMITATIONS ON HOW LONG AN IMPLIED WARRANTY LASTS, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
TO THE FULLEST EXTENT ALLOWED BY APPLICABLE LAW, UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES AND UNDER NO LEGAL THEORY (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, TORT, CONTRACT, STRICT LIABILITY, OR OTHERWISE) SHALL ANY OF THE REWARDME PARTIES BE LIABLE TO YOU OR TO ANY OTHER PERSON FOR (A) ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES OF ANY KIND, INCLUDING DAMAGES FOR LOST PROFITS, BUSINESS INTERRUPTION, LOSS OF DATA, LOSS OF GOODWILL, WORK STOPPAGE, ACCURACY OF RESULTS, OR COMPUTER FAILURE OR MALFUNCTION, (B) ANY SUBSTITUTE GOODS, SERVICES OR TECHNOLOGY, (C) ANY AMOUNT, IN THE AGGREGATE, IN EXCESS OF ONE-HUNDRED ($100) DOLLARS OR (D) ANY MATTER BEYOND OUR REASONABLE CONTROL. SOME STATES DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL OR CERTAIN OTHER DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATION AND EXCLUSIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
You agree to indemnify and hold the RewardMe Parties harmless from and against any and all claims, liabilities, damages (actual and consequential), losses and expenses (including attorneys’ fees) arising from or in any way related to any claims relating to (a) your use of the Services (including any actions taken by a third party using your account), and (b) your violation of these Terms. In the event of such a claim, suit, or action (“Claim”), we will attempt to provide notice of the Claim to the contact information we have for your account (provided that failure to deliver such notice shall not eliminate or reduce your indemnification obligations hereunder).
You may not assign, delegate or transfer these Terms or your rights or obligations hereunder, or your Services account, in any way (by operation of law or otherwise) without RewardMe’s prior written consent. We may transfer, assign, or delegate these Terms and our rights and obligations without consent.
Except as expressly set forth in the sections above regarding the Apple Application and the arbitration agreement, you and RewardMe agree there are no third-party beneficiaries intended under these Terms.
These Terms are governed by and will be construed under the Federal Arbitration Act, applicable federal law, and the laws of Hong Kong, without regard to the conflicts of laws provisions thereof.
Please read the following ARBITRATION AGREEMENT carefully because it requires you to arbitrate certain disputes and claims with RewardMe and limits the manner in which you can seek relief from RewardMe. Both you and RewardMe acknowledge and agree that for the purposes of any dispute arising out of or relating to the subject matter of these Terms, RewardMe’s officers, directors, employees and independent contractors (“Personnel”) are third-party beneficiaries of these Terms, and that upon your acceptance of these Terms, Personnel will have the right (and will be deemed to have accepted the right) to enforce these Terms against you as the third-party beneficiary hereof.
a. Arbitration Rules; Applicability of Arbitration Agreement. The parties shall use their best efforts to settle any dispute, claim, question, or disagreement arising out of or relating to the subject matter of these Terms directly through good-faith negotiations, which shall be a precondition to either party initiating arbitration. If such negotiations do not resolve the dispute, such dispute, controversy or claim arising in any way out of or in connection with the subject matter of these Terms, including the existence, validity, interpretation, performance, breach or termination thereof will be referred to and finally resolved by binding arbitration administered by the Hong Kong International Arbitration Centre (“HKIAC”) under the HKIAC Administered Arbitration Rules (“Rules”) in force when the Notice of Arbitration is submitted in accordance with those Rules. The seat of arbitration will be Hong Kong. Arbitration will be conducted in English. The arbitration will proceed in the English language, in accordance with the the Rules then in effect, by one commercial arbitrator with substantial experience in resolving intellectual property and commercial contract disputes. The arbitrator shall be selected from the appropriate list of HKIAC arbitrators in accordance with such Rules. Judgment upon the award rendered by such arbitrator is final and binding upon parties, and may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.
b. Infringement. Notwithstanding the foregoing obligation to arbitrate disputes, each party shall have the right to pursue injunctive or other equitable relief at any time, from any court of competent jurisdiction, to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party’s copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents or other intellectual property rights.
c. Exclusive Venue. If in any circumstances where the foregoing arbitration agreement permits either you or RewardMe to litigate any dispute arising out of or relating to the subject matter of these Terms in court, then the foregoing arbitration agreement will not apply to either party, and both you and RewardMe agree that any judicial proceeding (other than small claims actions) will be brought in the courts located in Hong Kong.
d. Severability. If the prohibition against class actions and other claims brought on behalf of third parties contained above is found to be unenforceable, then all of the preceding language in this Arbitration Agreement section will be null and void. This arbitration agreement will survive the termination of your relationship with RewardMe.
You will be responsible for paying, withholding, filing, and reporting all taxes, duties, and other governmental assessments associated with your activity in connection with the Services, provided that the RewardMe may, in its sole discretion, do any of the foregoing on your behalf or for itself as it sees fit. The failure of either you or us to exercise, in any way, any right herein shall not be deemed a waiver of any further rights hereunder. If any provision of these Terms are found to be unenforceable or invalid, that provision will be limited or eliminated, to the minimum extent necessary, so that these Terms shall otherwise remain in full force and effect and enforceable. You and RewardMe agree that these Terms are the complete and exclusive statement of the mutual understanding between you and RewardMe, and that these Terms supersede and cancel all previous written and oral agreements, communications and other understandings relating to the subject matter of these Terms. You hereby acknowledge and agree that you are not an employee, agent, partner, or joint venture of RewardMe, and you do not have any authority of any kind to bind RewardMe in any respect whatsoever.
