You must comply with these standards, which apply to any information you provide to us, in whole or in part. If, in Bounce’s reasonable judgement, you provide any information that is untrue, inaccurate, not current, incomplete, or inconsistent with prior answers to identical questions, or Bounce has reasonable grounds to suspect that such information is untrue, inaccurate, not current, or incomplete, Bounce has the right to suspend or terminate your current access to, use of the Website and/or Application and/or participation in the Bounce Activities. This is subject to your right to refuse to participate in any Bounce Activities at any time.
YOUR MEMBERSHIP PROFILE AND BOUNCE ACCOUNT
Once you have completed the Bounce Registration Process, Members will be provided with a profile (“Membership Profile“) and an account (“Bounce Account“) for the Website, Application, and those Bounce Activities for which rewards (as defined below) are offered.
Only one Membership Profile is permitted per Member and any Member found to have multiple Membership Profiles and/or Bounce Accounts may have their primary and any secondary Membership Profiles and/or any Bounce Accounts deleted. Bounce may demand proof of identity from a Member and rewards held in secondary Bounce Accounts may not be transferred and may be forfeited.
A unique email address must be used by each Member.
Each Membership Profile and Bounce Account must only be accessed by that individual Member and may not be accessed by any other individual without the express permission and authorisation of Bounce. You agree to notify Bounce immediately if you become aware of, or suspect any unauthorised use of your login information, Membership Profile and/or Bounce Account, or any other breach of security.
Members may be awarded rewards at the discretion of Bounce, into their Bounce Account (“Rewards“) through the Website and/or Application for participating in certain Bounce Activities. The amount of Rewards that may be awarded for participation in Bounce Activities may vary from time to time.
Rewards will only be awarded to Members who follow all instructions regarding the participation to qualify for any Reward. A Member’s failure to correctly follow any such instructions or procedures may result in no Rewards being awarded.
Rewards awarded will be recorded in your Bounce Account, however Rewards are not available for redemption until a member has (subject to paragraph 3.3.9 below) reached the specified fulfilment level in their Bounce Account.
If Bounce has suspended or terminated your Bounce Account for any of the reasons outlined in these Terms any Rewards you have been awarded cannot be redeemed and may be forfeited. Bounce reserves the right to reclaim any rewards held in the Bounce Account or paid to the Member following breach of these Terms.
Bounce reserves the right to change the Bounce Activities, the Website and/or Application or other ways in which Members may be eligible for Rewards and to vary the frequency of invitation to such activities. Bounce also reserves the right to alter the specified fulfilment level before Rewards may be redeemed.
Rewards have no monetary or other value until redemption. Rewards may not be transferred to other Bounce Accounts nor pooled together in any manner and the sale or barter of Rewards is strictly prohibited.
Bounce may, in its reasonable judgement, adjust the Rewards in a Member’s Bounce Account upwards or downwards in response to errors (which Members acknowledge may arise) or if Bounce suspects fraud.
Bounce may terminate any Bounce Account that, in Bounce’s reasonable judgement, has been dormant for a period of 6 months or more and any unused Rewards will be forfeited. By ‘dormant’ we mean, where the Member has not accessed their Bounce Account within the preceding 6-month period. Bounce may contact the Member via their nominated email address if their Bounce Account is at risk of termination through inactivity, however, has no obligation to do so.
