- HOW OUR BUSINESS WORKS
3.1 Which Cause will receive a Contribution
(a) The way our business works is that you, as the one making the purchase, have the power to determine which Cause receives the contribution in respect of your purchase from a Merchant and the percentage of the cashback you receive that you are willing to donate. You do this by specifying your Nominated Cause via the Website/App (or in another manner acceptable to us), which at the date of these T&Cs is referred to as your ‘default’ Cause. You may update your Nominated Cause from time to time via the Website/App.
(b) Generally, the Contribution will be paid to your Nominated Cause that you have selected at the time you make the Eligible Purchase, as that is when our systems match your payment details with the payment to the Merchant and when our system checks the Website/App to see who your Nominated Cause is.
(c) However, if you have recently changed your Nominated Causes and there are delays in the processing of the payment or a failure in our systems, then there could be circumstances where the Contribution is credited to the Cause you nominated shortly prior to or after the time of the Eligible Purchase. While we will use our best endeavours to ensure this does not occur, you acknowledge that these errors may occur from time to time and that we are not liable to you in respect of any claims for such errors.
(d) If, at the time of an Eligible Purchase, you have not specified the Cause that is to receive your contributions or you have nominated us to determine which Cause is to receive contributions, then:
(i) we will determine, in our discretion and from time to time, which Cause receives the Contribution in respect of your Eligible Purchase, which may depend on any statements we have made to the public or you in respect of a period (but we are not bound by any such statements to the extent the law permits); and
(ii) the Cause that we determine under paragraph (i) above will be considered the ‘Nominated Cause’ in respect of that Eligible Purchase for the purposes of this Agreement and we will pay the Contribution to them in accordance with our agreement with them.
3.2 How the amount of the Contribution is calculated
(a) The amount of any Contribution that we may make in respect of your Eligible Purchase will be calculated in accordance with the Merchant Agreement, which will generally be determined by multiplying the Contribution % to the Price.
(b) The Contribution % will generally be the % displayed in the Website/App in respect of the relevant Merchant (which at the date of these T&Cs is generally the percentage displayed in the Website/App or any replacement term used in the Website/App). However, , for the avoidance of doubt, the Contribution % but does not include any discount %, rather that % relates to any discounts the Merchant may choose to provide you for purchasing the Merchant’s products if your purchase with them is an Eligible Purchase). We endeavour to ensure that the relevant percentage specified in the Website/App equals the Contribution % that we are legally entitled to charge the Merchant under the Merchant Agreement. However, if our Merchant Agreement provides for a different Contribution % to that displayed in the Website/App, the Contribution % provided for in the Merchant Agreement will determine the amount of any Contribution to be paid based on the Price.
3.3 When Contributions are paid
(a) We only pay a Contribution to the Nominated Cause when we receive payment from the Merchant of the corresponding amount plus the other fees we charge to the relevant Merchant. That is, we do not guarantee that the Contribution will be paid to the Nominated Cause if we are not paid by the Merchant.
(b) We will pay the Contribution to the Nominated Cause in accordance with our agreement with the relevant Nominated Cause, which generally provide for payment to be made within 15 days of the end of the month in which we receive the corresponding payment from the Merchant.
3.4 Donation Processing and Alternative Cause Policy
While Points4Purpose does not have agreements in place with all causes listed on this site, we will use our best endeavours to process donation as per your instruction. In the event that we are unable to do so, we commit to advise you of this and to request that you make a donation to an alternative cause. In the event that you do not advise us of your alternative cause within 21 days of advice, Points4Purpose retains the right to make a donation to an alternative cause on your behalf.
3.5 Purchases from Merchants
(a) As we are merely a technology service provider, you acknowledge that the Merchant is solely responsible for all transactions with you, including in respect of the quality and Price of any products you have purchased and managing any disputes with you (including in respect of any refunds).
(b) We are not in any way liable for any claims made by you in connection with any Eligible Purchase (or any other purchase of products from a Merchant) or any failure on the Merchant’s part to adhere to any agreement with you or any applicable laws (such as consumer guarantees).
(c) A purchase made by you will not be considered an ‘Eligible Purchase’ if it is not a retail purchase, and any cash withdrawal, cash advance, card check transaction, instant loan or similar transaction will not be considered an ‘Eligible Purchase’.
(d) You agree not to raise any claims against us, any Service Provider nor any Payment Card Network, nor seek to make us, any Service Provider or any Payment Card Network liable in connection with any dispute that you have with a Merchant in respect of any purchase you have made with them.
3.6 Card Linking Rewards/Transactions
(a) At the time these T&Cs were adopted, our systems may only be able to match purchases you have made with Merchants by reference to any Visa, Mastercard or American Express details you have expressly notified to us via the relevant part of the Website/App for that purpose (which is referred to as the ‘Eligible Payment Method’ in these T&Cs and, at the date these T&Cs were adopted, is under the ‘Linked Cards’ part of the Website/App).
(b) If you make a purchase with a Merchant via a means other than the Eligible Payment Method, then no contributions will be made in respect of your purchase with the Merchant. That is because we can only match your purchases with the Eligible Payment Method of our Merchants where you have made the purchase with the approved Eligible Payment Method advised to us via the Website/App at the time of the purchase.
(c) Please note that we do not process payments in respect of Eligible Purchases (or any other purchase you make with a Merchant), rather any payments for the goods, services or other products of a Merchant will be processed by (or on behalf of) the Merchant. Despite the Merchant facilitating payment in respect of any purchases you make with them, we require details of your Eligible Payment Methods so that we can match your purchases with the Merchant to determine whether an Eligible Purchase has occurred and to link any Eligible Purchase you have made to your Nominated Cause to facilitate the payment of a Contribution to them in respect of your Eligible Purchase.
(d) We will keep the details of your Eligible Payment Methods confidential and will only disclose them to the extent required to give effect to this Agreement, to our Service Provider (Fidel), Merchant Agreements or as otherwise required by law. You may delete details of your Eligible Payment Methods via the Website/App, but such deletion should not be taken as an agreement on our part to permanently erase such Eligible Payment Methods (unless you specifically request this in writing and we confirm same), as we may require details of your Eligible Payment Methods to verify Eligible Purchases you have made in the past or assist in resolving any dispute with you, Merchants or Causes. However, if you want to opt out of transaction monitoring on your cards, then please notify us in writing and we will do so where required by law or any schemes relating to transaction monitoring by which we are bound.
(f) By registering a payment card in connection with transaction monitoring (including by specifying a Linked Card via the Website/App), you authorise us to share your payment card information with Payment Card Networks (including Visa, Mastercard and American Express) so they know you have enrolled. You authorise the Payment Card Networks to monitor transactions on your Linked Card(s) to identify Eligible Purchases in order to determine whether you have qualified for or earned an offer on your Linked Card, and for Payment Card Networks to share such transaction details with us and participating merchants/Merchants to ascertain whether an Eligible Purchase has been made and to enable your Linked Card offer(s) and provide offers that may be of interest to you. You may opt-out of transaction monitoring on the Linked Card(s) you have registered by navigating to your settings menu to remove your Linked Card(s)
(g) We may in our sole discretion, remove any Linked Card or refuse any request of a Linked Card, if you attempt to link a card that falls outside the Eligible Payment Method, including but not limited to prepaid cards of any kind.
(h) We are not under any obligation to determine the eligibility of any card prior to you making a link request pursuant to this agreement or via the Website/App, and we and the Service Providers shall have the right to remove any such card from eligibility at any time and for any reason. Not all Visa, MasterCard, and American Express cards are eligible for registration as a Linked Card (including PIN based purchases on debit cards payments made through other payment methods (such as a digital wallet or a third party payment app, where you may choose your Visa, Mastercard and AMEX card as a funding source but you do not present your card directly to the merchant.

(J) Not all Visa, MasterCard, and American Express cards are eligible for registration - including some PIN based purchases on debit cards (debit transactions should be authorised via signature and not PIN in order to be monitored), purchases you initiate through identification technology that substitutes for a PIN, payments made through other payment methods (such as a third party payment app, where you may choose your Visa, Mastercard and AMEX card as a funding source but you do not present your card directly to the merchant). Visa, MasterCard, and American Express, non-reloadable prepaid cards, government-administered prepaid cards (including EBT cards), 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 payment system, MasterCard payment system, and/or American Express payment system are not eligible to participate.

(b) Any consent or approval required from us in connection with this Agreement must be in writing in order to be valid.

6.8 Entire Agreement
To the extent the law permits, this Agreement represents the entire agreement between the parties in respect of the matters contemplated by this Agreement, and you acknowledge that you have not entered into this Agreement in reliance of, or as a result of, any promise, representation, statement, conduct or inducement of any kind relating to any matter in connection with this Agreement from us or our agents.
6.9 Third Parties
Your obligations under this Agreement may confer rights for the benefit of third parties (including our officers, employees and agents, our Service Providers and Payment Card Networks) and you will be deemed to have received notice of acceptance of the rights conferred on them (and will be prevented from denying same) when we provide you access to the Website/App. We may also hold those rights on trust for those persons.
If any provision of this Agreement in favour of us exceeds what is permitted by law (Void Term), then the following provisions will apply:
(a) the Void Term shall be read down only to the extent required to ensure it is enforceable; and, if the unenforceability of the Void Term is not rectified by this provision;
(b) if the Void Term is unenforceable due to it imposing liability on you, then you shall only be liable to the extent that you caused or contributed to the liability;
(c) if the Void Term is unenforceable due to it releasing us from an obligation, we will still be liable to perform that obligation to the extent we either caused or contributed to the event giving rise to the obligation or breach of this Agreement or the terms implied by law that cannot legally be excluded; and
if the foregoing does not cure the invalidity or unenforceability, this Agreement will not include the Void Term and the remainder of this Agreement shall continue in full force.
