YOUR ACCEPTANCE OF THESE TERMS
CHANGES TO THESE TERMS
We may, without prior notice or liability to you, discontinue the Services or modify the Services by adding or removing features or functionalities, even though such changes may affect PokitMoney (as defined below) awarded to you. We may also revise these Terms from time to time in our sole discretion, subject to applicable law. When we revise these Terms, we will post a revised version on the Website and the Application or notify you by email. You are free to decide whether or not to accept a revised version of these Terms, but accepting these Terms, as revised, is required for your continued access to and use of the Services. If you do not agree to these Terms or any revised version of these Terms, your sole recourse is to terminate your access to and use of the Services by ‘opting out’ by way of the Application. Except as otherwise expressly stated by us, your access to and use of the Services are subject to the version of these Terms in effect at the time of your access or use.
You authorise us to act as your agent to collect any cash rebate payable by a Merchant when you make a purchase of the services and/or goods that qualify for a cash rebate from that Merchant.
Once a cash rebate is received from a merchant on your behalf, we update your account by issuing a digital coupon in the form of PokitMoney in accordance with clause 5(d) (“Linking Your Payment Card”) to reflect the amount of the cash rebate received and held by us as agent for you.
For the avoidance of doubt, if we do not receive all or part of a cash rebate owed by a Merchant, we will not be under any obligation to issue a digital coupon to you in the form of PokitMoney until such time as all cash rebates owed by a Merchant have been received by us in full from that Merchant.
You also acknowledge and agree that there are no fees for the Services provided your account is Active. A $3 PokitMoney fee will be applied to accounts which are not used for a period 90 days. PokitPal reserves the right to charge fees for the Services in the future. We will notify you before introducing any new charges for the Services by notifying you electronically, by posting such fees on the Website and Application, as applicable, or by any other method permitted by applicable law. If you continue accessing or using the Services after such notice, you must pay all applicable fees for the Services.
THE SERVICESThe purpose of the Services is to help you save money with minimal effort by rewarding you for certain qualifying purchases and other activities.
You are solely responsible for ensuring the confidentiality of your Account login information and maintaining the security of such information. You agree not to authorise any other person to use your Account for any purpose. Except as otherwise provided by applicable law, you are solely responsible for all transactions and other activities authorised or performed using your Account, whether authorised by you or not. If you believe any of your Account credentials, such as your password, have been obtained or used by any unauthorised person or you become aware of any other breach or attempted breach of the security of the Services or your Account, you must notify us immediately by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Linking Your Payment Card
In order to receive PokitMoney from us for qualifying purchases of Merchant’s goods or services, you must link at least one eligible debit or credit card (a “Payment Card”) to your Account. Please note that not all debit and credit cards are eligible to be linked to your Account. All determinations as to whether a card is eligible to be a Payment Card are at our sole discretion. For example, certain Mastercard and Visa cards are not eligible to be linked to your Account, including, but not limited to, the following: prepaid cards, corporate cards, purchasing cards, store cards which can only be used at their respective retailers’ stores, government-administered prepaid cards (including Medicare and healthcare cards and cards that are not processed through the Visa payment system or the Mastercard payment system. In order to be eligible as a Payment Card, it must be issued by an Australian Financial Institution. In addition, you may not be able to link a debit or credit card to your Account if the card is already linked to certain other third-party card-linked offer programs.
Use of Enrolled Cards and Transaction Information
By registering a Payment Card in connection with transaction monitoring, you authorise us to share your payment card information with the third-parties that enable us to provide the Services (“Third-Party Service Providers”) and your Payment Card Network (e.g., Visa, Mastercard) so it knows you enrolled. You authorise the Payment Card Network to monitor transactions on your registered Payment Card(s) to identify qualifying purchases in order to determine whether you have qualified for or earned an offer linked to your Payment Card, and for the Payment Card Network to share such transaction details with us to enable your card-linked offer(s) and target offers that may be of interest to you. You agree that the Company and Third-Party Service Providers may view your transactions made by you with participating merchants. You authorise participating merchants to provide the Company with historical transaction data. You may opt-out of transaction monitoring on the payment card(s) you have registered by visiting Settings>Bank Details>Linked Cards in the Application
Subject to these Terms, we will automatically provide PokitMoney to you when you purchase qualifying goods or services with your Payment Card or perform other qualifying actions identified by us. The Company, in its sole discretion, establishes the terms and conditions for each qualifying purchase or action and determines whether you have satisfied such terms and conditions to receive PokitMoney. Such terms and conditions are set forth on the Website and the Application and may be updated, modified, suspended, or cancelled by the Company at any time in its sole discretion.
Not all qualifying purchases made with your Payment Card may be eligible for PokitMoney if we are unable to obtain certain transaction information from the Payment Card Network associated with your Payment Card. For example, we may be unable to obtain certain transaction information from the Payment Card Network (and you may therefore be unable to receive PokitMoney) for the following transactions made with your Payment Card: (i) purchases that require you to enter your Personal Identification Number (“PIN”) for your Payment Card, (ii) purchases you initiate through identification technology that substitutes for a PIN, (iii) payments made through other payment methods (such as a digital wallet or a third-party payment application, where you may choose your Payment Card as a funding source but you do not present your Payment Card directly to the merchant), (iv) payments of existing balances, balance transfers, or (v) transactions that are not processed or submitted through the Payment Card Network. Do not use a PIN when paying for a qualifying purchase with your Payment Card if you want the purchase to be eligible for PokitMoney.
Without limiting any of the other terms of these Terms, if you return, charge back, cancel, dispute, or otherwise request a refund for a qualifying purchase for which you have already received PokitMoney, we will reduce the balance of PokitMoney in your Account by the amount of PokitMoney you received for such transaction. If the balance of PokitMoney in your Account is less than the amount of PokitMoney you received for such transaction, we will offset the applicable amount of PokitMoney from PokitMoney you would otherwise receive for future qualifying actions.
PokitMoney that you receive as a result of a qualifying purchase at a local merchant will generally be reflected in your Account within 0-7 Business Days after the date of purchase. PokitMoney that you receive as a result of a qualifying online purchase will be reflected in your Account after the return period for the purchase has expired and generally within 60-90 Business Days after the online purchase is completed. In some cases, it may take longer for PokitMoney to be reflected in your Account. For purposes of these Terms, “Business Day” means a day that is not a Saturday, Sunday or public holiday in New South Wales, Australia.. Without limiting any of the other conditions of these Terms, if we award PokitMoney to you in error (e.g., we later determine that you did not comply with the terms and conditions of a qualifying purchase or if you charge back a qualifying purchase), we reserve the right to remove the applicable PokitMoney from your Account. You are responsible for making sure the PokitMoney balance reflected in your Account is correct. If you believe that your Account does not accurately reflect PokitMoney that you are eligible to receive, please contact us at email@example.com
