You understand that you do not have authority to make or accept any offers or make any representations on behalf of Points2Shop LLC. You may not make any statement, whether on a site maintained by you or otherwise, that would contradict anything in this section. You are solely responsible for the reporting and payment of any taxes for money earned while using the Points2Shop LLC program.

We do not guarantee that a member will receive credit for offers. We reserve the right to refuse credit for an offer for a number of reasons, including, but not limited to, fraud, system abuse and early termination. You are doing all offers on a voluntary basis with the understanding that no credit is guaranteed for the time you spend completing offers. Payment from offers will only be made after verification that offers completed have been validated and that the offer(s) has been paid upon by the advertiser. Points2Shop LLC will never be deemed as owing payment to any member. There are occasional delays in receiving commissions from the advertisers and, by participating in the Points2Shop LLC program, members understand and acknowledge that no payment shall be made until Points2Shop LLC has received such payment from its advertisers.
We do not believe in spam; Points2Shop may occasionally send you periodical e-mails containing information regarding site updates and maintenance. We only send these newsletters if you are subscribed as such and you can opt-out from your account management page or by clicking the unsubscribe link in any of the e-mails sent. You may not promote your referral links through unsolicited emailing (i.e. SPAMMING), newsgroup postings, or any other method of mass communication. Failure to comply will result in immediate termination of your membership with Points2Shop LLC and may result in legal prosecution. Points2Shop LLC strictly enforces anti-spamming laws. Spamming is a federal crime; Any member caught spamming will not only have their account terminated immediately and lose any past, present and future earnings, but shall also be held liable for spamming as we shall cooperate with any authorities and investigations that may arise from the aforementioned incident.

Most payments and order requests are revised and fulfilled within 2 business days, pending account validation. In some cases, payments and orders may require additional time to be processed. Before payment, accounts are audited for validation, to ensure that no fraud has taken place and that the information provided by an individual is current and correct. We cannot make payment in cash or through orders to any member with incomplete or inaccurate account information.
Points2Shop LLC reserves the right to request proper identity verification for any and all accounts without stating a reason therefore. If such a request is made of a member and subsequently refused, Points2Shop LLC reserves the right to withhold funds.

Failure to provide a valid W-9 form will result in termination of your account and forfeiture of all commissions earned. Withdrawals will be reported as required by the IRS and a 1099-MISC will be issued to all members withdrawing $600.00 or more per fiscal year of occurrence or as required by law. All non-US members will be required to submit a W-8 in the same manner. W-8 and W-9 forms are available online via the United States Internal Revenue Service website at http://www.irs.gov/.
