2. HOW COUPONS, CASH BACK INCENTIVES, LOYALTY REWARDS, AND/OR REBATES ON THE SERVICES WORK
- Generally. Certain brands, merchants, and retailers (collectively, “Brands”) may offer users, via the Services, certain discounts, coupons, cash back incentives, loyalty rewards, and/or rebates (“Rebates”) related to their products (those products subject to a Rebate, “Qualifying Products”). After purchasing Qualifying Products from the supermarket, retailer (including online retailers), or natural foods store, users may redeem their Rebates by scanning the product’s Universal Product Code (“UPC”) and then taking and uploading a photo of their receipt to the Service. After confirmation by the Service of the purchase of Qualifying Products, the Service will remit the applicable Rebate to the user’s Payment Account (as defined in Section 2(b) below) within a reasonable amount of time.
- Payment Accounts. In order to receive a Rebate using the Service, you will need to create an account (“Payment Account”) with third party payment providers identified on the Service (“Payment Provider”). Your Payment Provider agreement governs your use of your Payment Account and you must refer to that agreement and not the Terms to determine your rights and liabilities. All Rebates for the purchase of Qualifying Products will be deposited in your Payment Account by your Payment Provider. If your Payment Account does not match your Account, Makeena has the right to not pay out Rebates.
- Rebate Terms. In addition to the terms and conditions of these Terms, any Rebates offered through the App, Website, Brand, or Payment Provider may be governed by specific terms and conditions that are separate from this Agreement. Rebates may be subject to limitations, including, without limitation, geographic limitations, or number of Rebates offered by Brands. We urge you to review any specific terms and conditions applicable to a particular Rebate. To the extent that the terms and conditions of such Rebates conflict with these Terms, the terms and conditions of the applicable Rebate will control.
In order to receive a Rebate, users must scan the UPC and upload a photo of their receipt for the purchase of Qualifying Products to the Service no later than the claim by date, or as set forth in the applicable Rebate or on the App. All Rebates are also subject to the terms and conditions set forth in the Rebate offer or promotion. All Rebate claims are subject to Makeena’s final, sole, and absolute review and approval. If a Rebate submission is incomplete or fails to meet any of the terms and conditions applicable to such Rebate, no Rebate will be issued. Applicable tax, if any, is the sole responsibility of the user.
You understand and agree that the Service uses a series of algorithms and optical recognition technologies to convert the photographed images of your receipts into digital text. This automated process is often prone to errors, and as such, you understand that you are solely responsible for confirming that your purchase of all Qualifying Products is accurately reflected on the Services. You further understand and agree, any alteration, blurring, burning, charring, darkening, destruction, obscuring, obfuscation, ripping, smearing, tearing, or other damage to your receipts may impact your ability to upload evidence of your purchase of Qualifying Products to the Service. Makeena assumes no liability for the accuracy or completeness of any receipt or other information you upload to the Services, or any inaccuracies or failures of the Services to translate photographs of your receipts into digital text.

11. ARBITRATION; APPLICABLE LAW
PLEASE READ THIS CAREFULLY. IT AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS.
- Except for a civil or criminal claim made by Makeena against you, any and all disputes between you and Makeena arising under or related in any way to these Terms must be resolved through binding arbitration as described in this Section.

- The arbitration will be governed by the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), as modified by this Section. For any claim where the total amount of the award sought is $10,000 or less, the AAA, you and Makeena must abide by the following rules: (a) the arbitration shall be conducted solely based on written submissions; and (b) the arbitration shall not involve any personal appearance by the parties or witnesses unless otherwise mutually agreed by the parties. If the claim exceeds $10,000, the right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA rules, and the hearing (if any) must take place in Denver, Colorado. The arbitrator’s ruling is binding and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. In the event this agreement to arbitrate is held unenforceable by a court, then the disputes that would otherwise have been arbitrated shall be exclusively brought in the state or federal courts located in Colorado.
