2. Website membership and usage
2.1 We allow one account per person for purchases on your behalf.
2.2 We deem the account owner to be the legal owner of the email address used to sign up with us. Any Cashback earned using the account will be credited as if you had made the transaction yourself, subject to the Terms.
2.3 By using our website you represent and warrant that you have the right, authority, and capacity to agree to and abide by the Terms and if you are using the website on behalf of someone else you have the full and valid authority from all relevant parties.
2.4 We reserve the right in our sole discretion to refuse membership and/or to suspend or terminate any account (including suspending access to all or part of the website to any person) in accordance with our Terms.
2.5 Our website is for persons aged 18 or over. By accessing or using the website, you represent and warrant that you are above 18 years and have the capacity and authority to agree to these Terms.
2.6 We may use 3rd party organisations such as affiliate networks who provide the tracking technology and reporting to provide our service to you. You acknowledge your consent for us to share certain anonymised data with such organisations. For the avoidance of doubt, the retailers come under the category of such 3rd party organisations.
3. Cashback and Account Elections
3.1 We regard Cashback as an amount of money stated in your account that you are able to withdraw, subject to our payout terms and conditions.
3.2 In your account you may elect to withdraw funds, plant trees, or donate funds to a climate crisis solution organisation of your choice, subject to these Terms. You should make this election through your account. We publish how much Cashback our partners offer and alongside this, a number of trees we can plant for you if you make this election in your account, based on an average shopping basket. For example, when you shop for a product on our Site, you may see the option “Flat 8.00% cashback or 43* Trees planted in your forest” which means you may earn Cashback of 8% or you can instruct that we instead plant a number of trees calculated at an agreed rate per tree, and in this example the 43 trees is based on an average shopping basket of £66.80. Trees are planted through our partner Ecologi who is also one of our shopping partners. See our FAQs to understand how we plant trees.
3.3 As a default election, as a user of our website, we will elect for your Cashback to be applied to go to Ecologi into planting trees. You can view our forest online here. We will instruct Ecologi to create for you your own clump of trees in our forest with your name on it, along with the coordinates and a link to view further information. The planting of trees is subject to the terms and conditions of Ecologi. If you wish to select our tree planting option select the charity Eden Reforestation Projects.
3.4 Some retailers offer Cashback that can be withdrawn and some only offer the equivalent of Cashback in a form of an election to plant trees. All such details will be indicated to you when you decide to purchase through our Site. Any specific terms and conditions of the applicable retailer will also apply to you when you make the purchase, so you are advised to read their terms.
3.5 Through our website, we provide a platform that lets retailers make you offers and you transact directly with the retailer (not us). The retailer provides us with a tracking code using cookies and other technologies, it’s therefore important you have cookies enabled in your system when you use the website. You must you use the same device you use to make your purchase that you use when clicking the links on our website. If you make a purchase on another device that you did not use to link to the retailer the tracking will not be recorded and you will not earn Cashback.
3.6 When you have made a purchase it will show up in your account as ‘pending’ or may show as ‘confirmed’ depending on the processing performed by the concerned retailer. When we have been paid by the retailer, it will show up as ‘Payable Cashback’ (that means for the avoidance of doubt a Cashback that has been confirmed). At this stage, you can withdraw the money, subject to our payout terms and conditions, and/or plant trees and/or donate to climate crisis solution organisations.
3.7 The following are essential criteria we use to determine a successful payout of Cashback to you:
a) By clicking through to the retailer via any link other than the ‘Shop ’ link on our website may result in you not receiving any payment.
b) Any repeat purchase for the same item may not qualify for any Cashback. By using our website you acknowledge it is the retailer and not us who will determine if any transaction is genuine or not. We will not be able to intervene or be liable for any Cashback not received from a retailer for any reason. We are not responsible if the retailer fails to provide any Cashback.
c) You should make your purchase from the retailer at the point of clicking through to the retailer from our website. If you go onto another website to complete your purchase, use a different device, or make your purchase another time the transaction may not be recorded under your account and your Cashback may not be recorded.
d) While every retailer does agree to offer the Cashback advertised it is still entirely at the discretion of the retailer if they choose to provide any Cashback or not. We do not have any control over the policies and procedures of the concerned retailer in relation to the Cashback offered by them or paid by them.
e) If for any reason your account is deleted or disabled , any Cashback accrued will no longer be available to you.
f) Your Cashback earned will be declined if you cancel or modify your order or make a return with the retailer.
g) You shall always be in complete compliance with the Terms herein and shall not be in violation or a breach of the Terms or a breach of the terms and conditions that you have agreed with the concerned retailer.
h) Cashback is not applicable and will not be paid for: bulk purchases; purchase by gift cards, gift vouchers; if other donation/coupon/deal websites during the session are open; promo codes or coupons not approved by us are being utilized; if payment is made through third-party payment portals, e.g. Chase Pay, Amazon Pay, PayPal, etc.; if the Account Holder engages in any activity to manipulate our website or engage in fraudulent activities.
You hereby relieve and release us and our current and former employees, directors, officers, agents, volunteers, consultants, successors, and assigns from any claims arising out of the acts and omission of retailers including any failure by the retailers to pay the Cashback.
3.8 From time to time we may offer a Sign-up Bonus, this is a cash bonus amount usually £5 that is automatically added to your cashback available total. As highlighted in clause 4.5 you must have a minimum of £25 in your cashback account acuminated within 90 days of transactions to be able to withdraw this amount.
4. Liability and claims
4.1 If you did not receive Cashback where you consider that you followed our instructions and made a successful purchase with one of our retailers, then you may make a claim under your account, however we are not liable to acknowledge and/or act on any such claim and we may do so in own discretion. If we acknowledge your claim, we will act in good faith using commercially reasonable efforts to resolve your claim. Furthermore, we will not be held liable for any claims to pay Cashback due from a retailer if any such claim you make is not successful for any reason. We reserve the right to reject any claim without assigning any reason. You agree to submit to us all necessary information and assistance that we may require and/or request to resolve your claim.
4.2 We endeavour to make payment of Cashback as close to the estimated dates published on the website. These dates are only meant to provide a guide and we will not be held liable for any delayed payments for any reason where it is not in our reasonable control.
4.3 We do not hold money in your account in the same way as a bank account. Legal title to any monetary amounts showing in your account does not pass onto you until you physically receive the funds in your bank account. For the avoidance of doubt, we are not a bank and we do not pay any interest on any of Cashback amounts held with us.
4.4 In the unlikely event you receive Cashback into your account in error in any way, we will review and audit your account, and reverse the error. If funds are physically transferred to you in error, you shall be responsible for refunding the same to us on our first written request. We reserve the right to take any appropriate legal action against you for the recovery of such excess funds paid to you and you shall be responsible for payment of all legal costs and expenses associated with such legal action.
4.5 You can request Payable Cashback (withdrawal, or election to plant trees or donate to a climate change solution organisation) not more than once per week, and only where the Payable Cashback showing in your account meets the minimum payment threshold of £25.

4.7 Withdrawals of your Payable Cashback can be made by bank transfer (BACS), PayPal or any listed Gift Card providers listed under your account. We will endeavour to transfer Payable Cashback into your account promptly (and the estimated timeline is 3-5 working days) but we do not guarantee that funds will reach within the foregoing specified timeline. If you believe payments are delayed, then please contact us at the contact details stated herein. You are advised to read the terms and conditions of such payment processors which you will be bound by when you withdraw your Cashback using such mediums.
4.8 We will not be responsible for any Payable Cashback made to an incorrect account that you have provided. It is your responsibility to ensure that you enter and/or provide us with your accurate, complete, current, true, and valid details. Any incorrect payments are not likely to be recoverable, if so any such recoverable payment will be subject to an administration fee. We will not be liable to you for any loss or damage that occurred to you if you do not provide us with your accurate, complete, current, true, and valid details. For the avoidance of doubt, you waive any right to obtain Cashback from us if you fail to provide accurate, complete, current, true, and valid details.
4.9 Where an election is made in your account to donate your Cashback to a 3rd party (including a climate crisis solution organisation listed on our website), we will impose a minimum payment threshold of £25 (which for the avoidance of doubt means that no payment of less than £25 can be made on your behalf as a donation to a 3rd party). 100% of your Payable Cashback will be made to the 3rd party on your behalf. In case you choose this option, you authorize us and our applicable payments processor to debit your account and make the donation to a 3rd party that you indicated.
4.10 Should we suspect any fraudulent activity (which includes without limitation misrepresentation by you when opening or operating the account or when making purchases or pretending to make purchases when you have made none or pretending to have made a specific amount of purchases when you have not made the same or circumventing any technological measures to gain access to the website or to obtain Cashback) under your account, we reserve the right to decline to pay any Payable Cashback and suspend and/or close your account without notice. We shall not be liable for any loss or damage caused to you due to any of the actions that we may take in relation to any fraudulent activity in your account.
4.11 We are not liable if your Cashback transaction cannot be completed due to any issues including technical issues or due to any limits imposed by applicable laws.
4.12 If you have any questions regarding your purchase, your point of contact shall be the retailer and not us. We are not responsible for the supply of goods and services by the retailer or for any defects or delays in the delivery in performance of services (including after-sales support) and/or delivery of products by retailers. All such claims by you in such cases are solely against the retailers. Our act of endorsing or recommending any retailer on our website shall not be construed as we accept responsibility for the acts and omission of such retailers.
