Terms of Service
Last Updated: March 16, 2020
PLEASE READ CAREFULLY
The ReceiptPal℠ service (as modified from time to time, the "Service") is being provided to you ("You" or a "Member") by The NPD Group, Inc. ("We" or "NPD") under the terms and conditions set forth in these Terms of Service (the "Terms"). You accept and agree to the Terms by confirming acceptance of them or by using the Service. Please also read carefully the ReceiptPal App Privacy Notice applicable to the Service.
1. Changes to Terms.
NPD may change the Terms at any time. Any changes to the Terms will be made by posting the updated Terms on the Service, as indicated by a new "last updated" date for the Terms. You accept changes by using the Service after we post the changes or, if applicable, by confirming acceptance of the updated Terms. You are responsible for checking the Service for any updated Terms.
2. Grant of License by NPD.
NPD grants to you a limited, personal, non-exclusive, non-transferable and revocable license to use the Service only for your own personal, individual and non-commercial purposes relating to storing and viewing receipts for your purchases that are submitted to the Service ("Files") by you or collected by us if you have opted in to automated email or other online account collection. The Service is not intended for any person or entity seeking to use the Service for commercial purposes or for commercial document files. The Service is intended for use in the United States and we reserve the right to restrict access from locations outside the United States. All rights related to the Service not expressly granted by NPD are retained. Upon termination of your Account or the Service, the above license to use the Service will be revoked.
3. Grant of License by You.
You grant to NPD the perpetual right and license to use the information derived from the Files relating to receipts for any purpose relating to NPD's business and the business of its affiliates and consistent with the Privacy Notice.
4. Service Access.
Registration is not necessary for use of the Service, but only registered Members are eligible to participate in NPD's ReceiptPal rewards program (as described in the NPD ReceiptPal Rewards Program Official Rules). You may only have one account for the Service. NPD may refuse registration to any person for any lawful reason or for no reason, in the discretion of NPD. Further, NPD in its sole discretion may regulate access to the Service based on certain demographics, including but not limited to gender and age, for the purpose of improving or enhancing NPD's services and/or the Service. Such registration may prevent certain Members from gaining access to the Service. NPD will notify these Members via email or push notification when they are eligible for registration. For registration, you must have a valid, registered Member account ("Account"). Your Account may be accessed and used only by authorized individuals who are registered with NPD. Your Account will be maintained by you and is non-transferable and your Account may not be shared with other individuals. YOU CONFIRM AND AGREE THAT YOUR ACCOUNT MAY NOT BE USED BY ANY OTHER INDIVIDUAL. You agree to take sole responsibility for any activities or actions in using the Service, whether or not you have authorized such activities or actions. You will immediately notify NPD of any unauthorized use of the Service. We may notice activity within a Member's account which could indicate duplicate submissions - we may send an email to the Member to remind them of our Terms; the same could apply to people who appear to be collecting receipts of other people and submitting them as though they were their own.
5. Lawful and Permitted Use of Service.
You agree to be solely and completely responsible for your use of the Service, including all of your transmissions onto and off of the Service and the content of the Files. When using the Service, you agree to follow all applicable laws and not to make use of the Service for any purpose which is illegal. You agree that you will not transmit Files which include medical, prescription or health information; social security or driver's license numbers; financial institution, credit or debit card numbers; utility bills, mortgage statements, insurance information and inclusion of such information will be a violation of these Terms. Although NPD has no obligation to monitor the use of the Service by any particular Member, it reserves the right to do so to assure compliance with the Terms or if it otherwise deems it necessary in its sole discretion. Any exercise of discretion by NPD with respect to the Files will not imply control or responsibility by NPD for purposes of any liability.
We take certain steps to provide security for the Files. For example, transmission of the Files to our servers uses an SSL certificate that supports up to 256 bit encryption. Access to the Files is restricted to a limited number of authorized personnel: only employees or contractors who need the information to perform a specific job are granted access to the Files.
7. No Guarantee.
You acknowledge and agree that you will not rely on the Service for any reason. We cannot guarantee that the Files will not be subject to misappropriation, loss or damage and we will not be liable in any way if they are. NPD will have no responsibility for, and does not guarantee, the integrity, completeness or availability of the Files. You agree to assume all risk of loss of the Files. Without limiting the foregoing, you are responsible for making your own independent backup of the Files and for all costs and expenses that you or others may incur with respect to restoring and/or recreating any data and information that is lost or damaged in connection with your use of the Service.
8. Changes to the Service; Termination; Deletion of Files.
NPD reserves the right in its sole discretion to change or discontinue the Service (permanently or temporarily) at any time, with or without notice and for any reason. NPD may terminate or suspend your Account for any lawful reason or for no reason, in the discretion of NPD. If your Account is suspended or terminated for any reason, you acknowledge that you will be prevented from accessing the Service, your Account or the Files whether or not contained in your Account. NPD will be in no way liable for any consequence to anyone or anything which results from our decisions regarding continuing, changing, or discontinuing the Service or any features of the Service. Further, NPD will not be liable for forwarding, retrieving or returning any Files. We reserve the right to impose storage or other limits on use of the Service. We may also restrict or terminate your access to the Service if we determine that your use of the Service violates the Terms or substantially exceeds normal use by other Members. You will not be able to delete Files that have been uploaded to the Service, even upon termination of your Account.
We may make available to you, from time to time, software for your use in connection with the Service (collectively, the "Software"). Unless and to the extent specifically provided otherwise in the Software or related documentation, you may use the Software only in connection with the Service and you may not (a) separate any individual component of the Software for use other than in connection with the Service, (b) incorporate any portion of it into your own programs or compile any portion of it in combination with your own programs, (c) transfer it for use with another service, (d) sell, rent, lease, lend, loan, distribute or sub-license the Software or otherwise assign any rights to the Software in whole or in part, or (e) modify, reverse engineer, decompile or disassemble, or otherwise tamper with, the Software, whether in whole or in part, or create any derivative works from or of the Software. We may discontinue some or all of any Software at any time. We may also terminate your right to use any Software at any time and in such event may modify it to make it inoperable or take other actions as needed to restrict access to or availability of the Software. In order to keep your Software up-to-date, we may automatically provide you with updates/upgrades to the Software. You agree to comply with all export and re-export restrictions and regulations and to not transfer, or encourage, assist, or authorize the transfer of the Software to a prohibited country, or otherwise in violation of any applicable restrictions or regulations.

ReceiptPal℠ Rewards Program
NO PURCHASE OR PAYMENT NECESSARY TO ENTER OR WIN THE SWEEPSTAKES. MANY WILL ENTER, A FEW WILL WIN.
BY REGISTERING FOR THE RECEIPTPAL℠ REWARD PROGRAM ("PROGRAM"), YOU (AND YOUR PARENT OR LEGAL GUARDIAN, IF YOU ARE AN ELIGIBLE MINOR) AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THESE OFFICIAL RULES. THE NPD GROUP, INC. ("SPONSOR") RESERVES THE RIGHT TO MODIFY OR TERMINATE THE PROGRAM AT ANY TIME AND IN ANY MANNER EVEN THOUGH THIS MAY AFFECT THE REDEMPTION VALUE OF THE REWARDS POINTS ALREADY ACCUMULATED OR THE AVAILABILITY OF REDEEMABLE MERCHANDISE.
OVERVIEW: The ReceiptPal℠ Rewards Program (the "Program") is for those Members who have downloaded the ReceiptPal App and consists of a rewards program in which Members can earn points that can be redeemed for items in an online rewards store, and a sweepstakes in which Members can receive entries into weekly drawings for the chance to win prizes (the "Sweepstakes"). The Program begins on January 1, 2020 at 12:01am ET and ends on December 31, 2020 at 11:59pm ET (the "Program Period"). Unless otherwise indicated all times are Eastern Time.
ELIGIBILITY: The Program is only open to legal residents of the United States, 16 years of age and older. and who have an account ("Member"). This Program is not open to employees of The NPD Group, Inc. or its affiliates, licensees, parents, franchisees, subsidiaries, advertising or promotion agencies or members of the immediate family or household of each. For purposes of clarification, "immediate family" means parents, children, siblings and spouse, regardless of where they reside. Void where prohibited.
HOW THE PROGRAM WORKS:
EARN POINTS: You must download the App and register through the App to earn points that can be redeemed for items in the online rewards store. Members will be issued five virtual punch cards with four slots on each card the day they join. After that, Members will be issued up to three virtual punch cards each week. For each Valid Receipt you submit or which has been collected by NPD on your behalf if you have opted into automated email or other online account collection, the Member will receive 1 check mark with a maximum of 4 check marks per punch card. Receipts are subject to validation. A Valid Receipt is defined as a receipt that contains the retailer name, date of purchase, item(s) purchased (to the extent itemized on the receipt), and price(s) and the receipt must be submitted or collected by NPD within the Purchase Week. Purchase Week is defined as Sunday through Saturday of the week which the purchase occurred, with submission required no later than Tuesday of the following week. Data charges may apply if accessing the App over a wireless network and all charges are the Member's responsibility. Duplicate receipts, receipts of purchases made by others outside your household, historical receipts and receipts containing blurry images not readable by our system will not be considered a Valid Receipt. Each receipt may only be submitted one time and by one Member. If something other than a receipt is submitted, or the receipt is deemed to be invalid for any reason, you will not receive credit for that submission. Validation can take up to 72 hours, so points may not appear in your account immediately. After completing a punch card (four check marks for four valid receipts) the Member will receive the total amount of points that is specified on the punch card into their ReceiptPal rewards account. NPD may increase the value of punch cards (i.e., by issuing cards containing more points) for certain Members based on a Member's activity, and/or may offer bonus points for completed punch cards from time to time at its sole discretion.
REDEEM POINTS: Points may be redeemed for items featured in the reward store available through the App. See the Rewards section of the App for details on how to redeem your points. All items are subject to availability and will be made available on a first-come, first-served basis. The rewards store may be updated from time to time as supplies of certain reward items are exhausted and other reward items are added. Sponsor may also update the number of points required to redeem an item from time to time. Participants are responsible for ensuring that the shipping address provided at the time of registration is accurate and current. Sponsor is not responsible for lost or stolen items. Allow six to eight weeks for shipment of items. Orders for items may not be cancelled after the order is submitted and items may not be returned.
Points and any partially filled Receipt Cards will be forfeited after a Member has not submitted any paper receipts through the image capture feature of the App for 90 days and, if applicable, NPD will cease any automated email or online collection.
Points may not be sold or transferred; do not constitute property; do not entitle a Member to a vested right or interest; and have no cash value.
POINT FORFEITURE FOR ACCOUNT CANCELLATION OR INACTIVITY
Members will maintain their points earned as long as they remain a ReceiptPal Member by submitting at least one paper receipt through the image capture feature of the ReceiptPal App every 90 days. As long as the Member is active and in good standing, points do not expire. Sponsor reserves the right to terminate any Member`s account in our sole discretion if a Member has not submitted any paper receipts through the image capture feature of the ReceiptPal App for 90 days; or if the Member is in violation of any of the Terms and the ReceiptPal Rewards Program Official Rules including without limitation failure to follow the sale or barter of prizes or points and any misrepresentation of fact or other improper conduct as determined by us. Upon termination by Sponsor, the points within the Member`s Account and any partially filled Points Cards or Sweeps Card will be immediately forfeited and reset to zero. Sponsor has the right, in its sole discretion, to disqualify Member from future participation in the Program or similar Sponsor loyalty programs.
SWEEPSTAKES ENTRIES: Participants will also receive a Sweepstakes entry for each valid receipt submitted (entries for the Sweepstakes component can also be submitted using the Alternate Method of Entry described below). There are (3) entry periods:
Entry Period #1: Sunday 12:00 AM and Monday 11:59 PM
Entry Period #2: Tuesday 12:00 AM and Wednesday 11:59 PM
Entry Period #3: Thursday 12:00 AM and Saturday 11:59 PM
An entry received between Sunday 12:00 a.m. and Saturday 11:59 p.m. will be entered into the appropriate entry period weekly drawing. All drawings will occur on the Monday that is at least seven days (and no more than 14 days) after the day on which the receipt was received. Participant's time zone will govern the time the entry is received. Once a Member has completed all allotted punch cards for the week, the Member will receive two Sweepstakes entries for each additional Valid Receipt that is submitted during the specified entry period. However, no additional points will be earned for a Member's ReceiptPal rewards account for receipts submitted after all allotted punch cards have been completed.
If a Member deletes the App or unsubscribes from the Program, any and all points earned and Sweepstakes entries received will be forfeited.
ALTERNATE METHOD OF ENTRY FOR THE SWEEPSTAKES: In lieu of entering a Sweepstakes prize drawing by providing receipts through the App, Members may enter a Sweepstakes prize drawing by hand-printing their name, address, telephone number, (email address), year and month of birth on a 3½" x 5" card (without including receipts) and mailing the entry in a postmarked envelope to: ReceiptPal Sweepstakes, BIW CEG5, 7630 Bush Lake Rd, Minneapolis, MN 55439 USA ("Mail-in Entry"). Mail-in Entries must include required postage; postage due mail will not be accepted. A Mail-in Entry will be entered into the weekly entry period drawing, based on the post mark date, occurring on the Monday that is at least seven days (and no more than 14 days) after the day on which the Mail-in Entry is received. Limit one (1) entry per outer postmarked envelope. All Mail-in Entries become the exclusive property of Sponsor and will not be acknowledged nor returned. No mechanical reproductions will be accepted, and all such entries will be void. Any attempt at e-mail or any other method of entry is void. Proof of entry submission will not be deemed to be proof of receipt of entry by Administrator. Neither Sponsor nor Administrator are responsible for misdirected, inaccurate, incomplete, lost, late, delayed, undelivered, postage-due, damaged or illegible entries, and all such entries will be void.
WEEKLY SWEEPSTAKES PRIZE DRAWINGS: Potential sweepstakes winners will be selected in random weekly drawings conducted each Monday during the Program Period. In the event that a Monday is a holiday, the weekly drawing will be conducted on the following Tuesday. Drawings will be conducted by BI WORLDWIDE, an independent judging organization, whose decisions are final and binding on matters relating to this Sweepstakes. Entries will not be carried over into subsequent weekly drawings. Odds of winning depend upon the number of eligible entries received for each drawing. Limit one prize per person per entry period per weekly Sweepstakes drawing.
WEEKLY SWEEPSTAKES PRIZES: One prize of a $250 pre-paid debit card, per entry period, will be awarded in each weekly drawing.
Prize 1: $250. Entry Period #1: Sunday 12:00 AM and Monday 11:59 PM

SWEEPSTAKES WINNER NOTIFICATION/VERIFICATION: Potential winners will be notified by e-mail within 5 business days of drawing date.

If any letter/e-mail notification is returned as undeliverable, the prize will be forfeited and awarded to an alternate potential winner. Should a potential winner or any other winner decide to decline the prize for any reason whatsoever, Sponsor shall have no further obligation to that potential winner, and an alternate potential winner will be selected. After two unsuccessful attempts to contact an alternate, the Sponsor is not liable to fulfill the prize. Allow 6-8 weeks for prize delivery. Acceptance of prize constitutes winner's agreement and permission for Sponsor to use winner's name and likeness for advertising and trade purposes in any and all media without further notice or compensation, unless prohibited by law.
BONUS GAMES: App Members, who complete a receipt card by submitting 4 valid receipts to a single card, are eligible to participate in a bonus game within the App, once the receipt card is validated. With every game, the Member has a chance to win either points or sweepstakes entries. To play, the Member will follow the on-screen instructions to see the prize won. The prize will be automatically credited to the Member's account. Participants can receive up to a maximum of 5 bonus games per week.
Bonus games will accrue and remain active for the Member to play. No more than 5 bonus games can be accrued at one time. If a Member becomes inactive by not submitting any paper receipts through the image capture feature of the App for 90 days, any accrued bonus games will be removed from their account.
Standard rules apply to points and sweepstakes entries won through a bonus game.

Unless prohibited by law, any issues concerning the validity, interpretation or enforceability of these Official Rules, or the rights and obligations of entrants and Sponsor, shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New York, USA, without giving effect to any conflict of law rules which might find otherwise.

Bulk email distribution, distribution to strangers, or any other promotion of a Personal Link in a manner that would constitute or appear to constitute unsolicited commercial email or "spam" in the Company's sole discretion is expressly prohibited and may be grounds for immediate deactivation of the Personal Link. The Company has no obligation to monitor the Program or any communications; however, the Company may choose to do so and block any email messages, remove any such content, or prohibit any use of the Program. Referrers who do not comply with the law, including anti-spam laws, are obligated to indemnify the Program Entities against any liabilities, costs and expenses it incurs as a result of such spam.
