Welcome to the PIPs Reward Program. This website, and the information, content, services and products it makes available (collectively, the "Site") together with all of our other Services, is provided to you by 3P Partners, Inc., a New York benefit corporation ("3P," the "Company" or "We").
PIPs may be earned in a number of ways. PIPs may be earned by you when you make purchases with the Marketplace Partners featured through our Services (each, a "Marketplace Partner"). You may also earn PIPs when you take certain actions with our Preferred Partners who have created programs with 3P through which you are rewarded with PIPS in exchange for certain actions taken by you with the Preferred Partner (each, a "Preferred Partner"). In addition, 3P and certain partners may create special events together (each, a "Premium Partner"), and PIPs may be earned by you through your participation in these special events.
From time to time, 3P may announce other ways that you can earn PIPs, such as upon creating your Membership Account and in connection with our PIPs Refer a Friend Program. In such cases the terms of such awards, including the amount of PIPs rewarded and any limitation on the number of Members eligible to receive PIPs in connection with the PIPs Refer a Friend Program, shall be as determined by 3P in its sole discretion. For example, to earn a Refer a Friend award, 3P may require that the referred new Member make a purchase with a value of at least $25.00 during the first 365 days of his/her membership in the PIPs Reward Program. Please note that any awards made in connection with the Refer a Friend Program are given for the purpose of attracting brand new Members to the PIPs Reward Program. Therefore, a Member may only earn one PIPs referral bonus per individual person referred.
Our Marketplace Partners, Preferred Partners and Premium Partners (collectively, our "Partners") may have special requirements for earning PIPs and you will not earn PIPs unless and until those requirements are met. In addition, to earn PIPs you must be 13 years of age or older, you must reside in the United States, and you must have Internet access and a valid working email account. 3P is not responsible for tracking problems resulting from incorrect usage of the Services, disabling cookies, computer issues resulting from unknown causes such as third-party software or other issues, partner errors or omissions, or from any other failure of tracking mechanisms.
In addition, to earn PIPs through transactions with our Marketplace Partners, you must satisfy the following criteria: (i) you must log into your PIPs Membership Account before you link from the Services to a Marketplace Partner's site; (ii) you must link to the Marketplace Partner's site through our Services; (iii) you must have cookies enabled; (iv) you must complete your transaction; and (iv) you must return to our Services each time you wish to conduct an additional PIPs-earning transaction with a Marketplace Partner. In addition, if any of the following occur, you may not earn PIPs in connection with a transaction with a Marketplace Partner: (i) you allow too much time to elapse between linking to the Marketplace Partner's site and completing a transaction there; (ii) you fail to abide by the restrictions or requirements imposed by a Marketplace Partner; (iii) you click on any special offers or other coupons while making your transaction; (iv) you click on other toolbars while conducting your transaction; (v) you type a new address (URL) in any window opened by the PIPs Reward Program; (vi) the Marketplace Partner fails to transmit to 3P information about any purchase that would otherwise qualify for PIPs; (vii) a Marketplace Partner fails to comply with the terms of 3P's agreement with such Marketplace Partner; (viii) you return the item purchased in a PIPs-earning transaction; and/or (ix) you are notified that you or certain purchases are not eligible to earn PIPs. 3P will not be responsible for any PIPs it has not awarded to you where it was unable to make the award due to incorrect, incomplete, inaccurate or outdated PIPs Member Account information. All determinations of whether or not a purchase made through a Marketplace Partner qualifies for PIPs are made by 3P in its sole discretion.
3P is not responsible for changes to, or discontinuance of, any Partner, or any Partner's withdrawal from the PIPs Reward Program, or for any effect on accrual of PIPs caused by such changes, discontinuance or withdrawal.
Whenever it's noted in your PIPs Member Account that PIPs are "Available," you may use those PIPs for various redemption options that may be made available by 3P, you may donate your PIPs to one of the non-profits listed through our Services, or you may invest your PIPs in one of the micro-investment Partners listed through our Services. Qualification for a given redemption, donation, or micro-investment option is subject to specific conditions that are set in the sole discretion of 3P and/or our Partners. Such conditions may be adjusted by 3P and/or our Partners at any time. 3P reserves the right to change the number of PIPs that may be required to redeem a reward or that may be used for various activities (e.g., donations and micro-investments) and to impose limits and/or processing fees on PIPs redemptions, donations, and investments. PIPs redemptions are subject to availability (which may be limited) of the redeemed product or service, terms and conditions of the applicable Partner and/or as listed in connection with the redemption opportunity and may be subject to change at any time. In the event that a Partner refuses to honor a PIPs redemption for any reason, other than suspicion of theft or fraud, 3P's sole obligation will be to credit the PIPs Member Account of the Member for the number of PIPs that were to be redeemed. Please note that any to the extent that you wish to deduct from your taxes any donation of PIPS made by you to any of our non-profit Partners, you must obtain a tax deduction receipt directly from the Partner and you acknowledge and agree that 3P is not able to generate such certificate and 3P cannot guarantee the generation of any such certificate by the non-profit Partner. In addition, to the extent that you choose to invest your PIPs with any of our micro-investment Partners, the terms and conditions of such investment shall be as agreed upon by you and the micro-investment Partner and we shall not be party to that transaction nor shall we be responsible for the outcome of any such investment.
3P reserves the right to (a) audit your PIPs Member Account at any time for compliance with this Agreement, without notice to you, and (b) to change accrued PIPs totals without notification if such audit reveals errors, inaccuracies or miscalculations.
3P reserves the right to terminate the PIPs Reward Program in whole or in part at any time with or without notice and without any further liability or obligation to you.
From time to time our Partners may provide coupons, discounts or other special offers (collectively, "Offers") to our Members. 3P is not responsible for the redemption, errors/omissions or expiration of any such Offers and it is your responsibility to make sure that any Offer that you wish to apply to a transaction is present in the checkout process with any Partner. All Offers are subject to change without notice. 3P has no control over the legality of any Offers made by our Partners, the ability of any of our Partners to complete a transaction in accordance with any Offer, or the quality of the goods and/or services offered by any Partner. 3P has no control over whether any Partner will honor any Offer shown on our Site or their site and 3P does not guarantee the accuracy or completeness of the information contained on our Site or their site in connection with any Offer. In the event that you have a dispute with a Partner that relates to 3P, including in connection with anything posted through our Services or the use of any information from our Services, you agree to waive and release 3P and the other Related Parties (as defined below) from any and all claims, demands, actions, damages (actual and consequential), losses, costs or expenses of every kind and nature, known and unknown, disclosed and undisclosed, relating to any such dispute.
