Welcome to Fanbank TM, your shop local rewards program!
This Agreement is between you (“you” or “Participant”) and Fanbank, Inc. (“Company,”“we,” “us”) concerning your use of the shop local rewards program and platform known as Fanbank (the “Program” or “Service”).
Fanbank Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Fanbank”), owns the Fanbank trademark, operates the Fanbank shop local rewards programs, and owns and operates the www.fanbank.com website. We invite consumers to visit our site and register for the Fanbank shop local rewards program to receive various incentives and rewards including Fancoins® (“Rewards”). We value our relationship with you, our Participants – the Fanbank platform allows locally-owned and operated businesses to offer you Rewards in exchange for your patronage.
When using the Program, you agree that you are subject to any additional posted guidelines, rules, terms and conditions applicable to such use of the Program, which are hereby incorporated by reference into this Agreement.
How it Works.
Fanbank enters into agreements with locally owned, independent businesses (“Merchants”). These Merchants agree to offer a variety of incentives and rewards (“Rewards”) through the Fanbank platform, to customers as an incentive to make purchases (“Program”). Customers may participate in the Program by enrolling through the Fanbank website. Participants may enroll credit and debit cards with the payment card networks through the Fanbank platform and then use these enrolled cards to make purchases from the participating Merchants to earn Rewards (subject to restrictions, “Qualified Transactions”).
The same Merchants, along with other partners, (collectively, “IncentiveProviders”) provide Rewards. Fanbank arranges for Participants to receive Rewards from Qualified Transactions through a variety of methods which may include rebates, discounts, statement credits, prepaid cards, or Fancoins. While certain Rewards may be redeemed for cash, Rewards themselves have no cash value. Fanbank enables Merchants to determine the quantity of Rewards they want to offer Participants for Qualified Transactions with that Merchant. Fanbank also enables Merchants to sell store credits through the Fanbank platform that can later be redeemed by making a purchase directly from a Merchant (Store Credits). Store Credits carry a cash value of the Store Credit net of the cash value of any incentive, reward or gift card provided at the time of the purchase. Fanbank identifies the Qualified Transactions by arranging for enrolled debit and credit card transaction data from the Merchant to be processed by a data processor who has security qualifications meeting exacting standards of the Payment Card Industry (“PCI Compliant”).
How to Participate.
To receive Rewards from the Program, you need to enroll at www.fanbank.com. You will need to provide an email address and password, agree to these Terms and Service, enroll one or more credit and debit cards on the Fanbank web site, agree to the Card Linking Terms of Fanbank’s third-party data processor(s), and then use such enrolled credit and debit card at a participating Merchant. You may register up to ten (10) credit and/or debit cards that have been issued to you. Generally, most credit and debit cards with a logo from MasterCard®, Visa® or American Express® (collectively, “Third Party Service Providers”) are eligible for participation. However, some credit and/or debit cards issued on behalf of corporations for their employees may not be eligible for participation, see further details below. Also, some categories of credit and/or debit cards, including certain affinity cards, gift cards, stored value cards, and pre-paid cards may not be eligible for participation in the Program as detailed below.
Once you have registered, you can find Merchants on the www.fanbank.com website. Registered eligible cards must be used at Merchants or on the Fanbank platform as credit transactions, not PIN or ATM based transactions, to qualify for Rewards. Fanbank encourages you to actively manage and keep current your credit and debit cards enrolled with Fanbank. Though Fanbank takes commercially reasonable precautions to protect any personal information you provide, Fanbank relies upon you to ensure your registration information is up to date, so we can contact you in case of a breach. It is your responsibility to create a unique password in accord with current standards.
Not all MasterCard, Visa or American Express cards are eligible for registration. Visa, MasterCard, and American Express Corporate cards, Visa, MasterCard, andAmerican Express Purchasing cards, non-reloadable prepaid cards, government-administered prepaid cards (including EBT cards), healthcare (including Health Savings Account (HSA) or Flexible Spending Account (FSA) or insurance prepaid cards, Visa Buxx, and Visa-, MasterCard-, and American Express-branded cards whose transactions are not processed through the Visa U.S.A payment system, MasterCard payment system, and/or American Express payment system are not eligible to participate.
Not all transactions with your enrolled Visa, MasterCard and American Express card are tracked by Visa, MasterCard and American Express.
You acknowledge that Visa, MasterCard, and American Express may be unable to monitor every transaction made with your enrolled Visa, MasterCard, or AmericanExpress card, including PIN-based purchases, purchases you initiate through identification technology that substitutes for a PIN, payments made through other payment methods (such as a digital wallet or a third party payment app, where you may choose your Visa, MasterCard, or American Express card as a funding source, but you do not present your card directly to the merchant), payments of existing balances, balance transfers, or transactions that are not processed or submitted through the Visa U.S.A., MasterCard, and American Express payment systems, and that these transactions are not eligible.
If you enroll a debit card, your transaction must be processed as a ‘credit’(i.e., signature) transaction to make sure the transaction can be monitored. Do not use a Personal Identification Number (PIN) when paying for your purchases with your eligible card if you want the transaction to be eligible for Rewards or offer completion.
Merchants, not Fanbank, are responsible for all Rewards and Store Credits. Fanbank is the settlement platform. Upon issuance and redemption of a Reward or Store Credit, Fanbank will settle the Reward or Store Credit between You and Merchant. If Fanbank is unable to settle the Reward or Store Credit with Merchant, Fanbank is not responsible and You must settle with Merchant directly. Should Merchant cancel its membership with Merchant, Fanbank will expire all Rewards and attempt to settle any unused Store Credits, net of incentive or gift card amounts. If Fanbank is unable to settle unused Store Credits with a cancelled Merchant, Fanbank will not refund any money to you and you must settle directly with the Merchant. Fanbank has no liability for the cash value of Store Credits, that liability remains with Merchant at all times.
The Fanbank Program includes Merchants from more than one industry and Fanbank may add or remove industry categories and/or individual Merchants at any time. With certain Merchants, Rewards will be provided only up to a specified per transaction limit, even if the transaction amount is greater than the specified limit. You are prohibited from splitting transactions into multiple transactions for the purpose of circumventing this limitation. Per transaction limits and other merchant-specific restrictions, if any, will be specified in the offer you may receive from time to time or at www.fanbank.com.
If your Reward results in a statement credit, statement credits will not appear or be reflected on your transaction receipt from the Merchant at the time of purchase, and will instead be reflected on your periodic card statement. Subject to eligibility verification and settlement of the Qualified Transaction, statement credits will typically appear on your card statement approximately 10 days after the Qualified Transaction, but may be subject to delays.
Please allow up to 10 business days for your Rewards to be posted in your account. In the event that Rewards do not appear on your account, contact Fanbank at firstname.lastname@example.org. Ensure that you retain your original receipts or debit and credit card statements so that Fanbank can verify that your use of a card was a Qualified Transaction. Correspondence to Fanbank should include your name and member number and be sent to the above email address or sent via U.S. Mail to the Fanbank address below within 90 days of the original transaction. Please do not include full credit or debit card numbers (include the last 4 digits only) in communications with Fanbank. Requests sent in after the 90-day period or which otherwise do not comply with the foregoing requirements will not be considered. No adjustments will be made on previous purchases.
Offers and Rewards cannot be combined with employee discounts, or other offers and discounts. Rewards and offers are not transferable. To remove enrolled debit or credit cards, login at www.fanbank.com and go to the Manage Cards area of your Profile and remove your enrolled card.
Rewards carry no cash value. All unused Rewards expire at 1 year from issuance. AllRewards automatically expire if the issuing Merchant cancels their membership with Fanbank.
In registering, you are affirming that you are an individual person (not acting as another legal entity), are at least 18 years old, and have authority to enter into legally binding obligations. The information you provide in enrolling credit and debit cards and otherwise participating in the Program must be accurate. If it is not, Fanbank reserves the right to cancel your participation.Similarly, if you take any action intended to cause you to be provided with more Rewards than you are entitled to under the normal operation, or the letter and spirit of a Fanbank Program, we may rescind the awards, or seek monetary and other legal remedies against you.
Asa condition of your participation in the Program, you agree that you meet the criteria set forth above, and that:
You will not do any of the following:
Distinctions between Merchants, Fanbank and the Incentive Providers:
Data Receipt Requirements.
Fanbank relies upon data feeds from certain credit and debit card transaction processing companies to retrieve data to identify Qualified Transactions. Fanbank will take commercially reasonable steps to ensure that data feeds and payment with regard to Qualified Transactions are obtained. However, Fanbank will not be obligated to provide Rewards with regard to any Qualified Transactions for which Fanbank does not receive complete and accurate data and compensation from the Merchants, regardless of the reason.
Your payment card may only be enrolled in one program operated by Collinson Group at a time. If you have already enrolled a payment card with a separate program operated by Collinson Group, you will be unable to register that card in both Fanbank and the other Collinson Group-operated program. You may enroll another payment card in Fanbank or deactivate your card in the other Collinson Group-operated programs.
Data Processing Errors.
Fanbank uses the services of one or more data processing companies to compute the Rewards for each Qualified Transaction. Fanbank will use commercially reasonable efforts to ensure that the data processing companies provide complete and accurate computations. However, in the event of errors or omissions, either in the processing or the transmission of the data, if correction of the error involves extraordinary amounts of either payments, expenses or effort, Fanbank reserves the right to correct the problem without sorting out historical inaccuracies. However, in the event that such errors caused undue amounts of Rewards to be awarded, Fanbank may adjust the transaction or deduct the amount of the error from future Reward computations.
The agreements that Fanbank enters into with Merchants require the Merchants to notify Fanbank in advance of the Merchant ending its participation in the Program. Fanbank will remove any such Merchant from the listing of Merchants on the Fanbank Merchant locator. The agreements between Fanbank and the Merchants also prohibits the Merchants from using Fanbank’s marks and logos or to otherwise indicate that they are part of the Fanbank Program if they are not participating in the program. Fanbank takes commercially reasonable steps to ensure that no third-parties are displaying our logos or indicating that they are participants in the Fanbank program if they are not. However, Fanbank does not guarantee that every Merchant displaying our logos or listed as a Merchant is then currently an active participant in the Program, or that they will compensate Fanbank for Qualified Transactions, and Fanbank will not pay for Rewards unless data and compensation are actually received from a Merchant associated with the Qualified Transaction. Please email or write us if you believe there were Qualified Transactions for which you did not receive credit so that we may address the issue and prevent unauthorized use of the Fanbank Program. Additionally, Fanbank does not guarantee that any Merchant will accept any particular registered card.
