By participating in the Rewards Program, each Member is responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of his or her account and password and for restricting access to his or her account using reasonable care. Member agrees to accept responsibility for all activities that occur under Member's account or password. Without limiting any other remedies, Sponsor may suspend or terminate any account if Sponsor suspects, at its sole discretion, that any Member or other person has engaged in fraudulent activity in connection with this Rewards Program. Points do not constitute property, do not entitle a Member to a vested right or interest, and have no cash value. As such, points are not redeemable for cash, transferable, or assignable for any reason. The sale, barter, transfer, or assignment of any accumulated Points, other than by the Sponsor, is strictly prohibited. Any Points that the Sponsor deems, at its sole discretion, to have been transferred, sold, bartered, assigned or otherwise improperly acquired in violation of these Terms may be confiscated and/or cancelled.
Participation in the Rewards Program is subject to these Terms, as well as policies and procedures that Sponsor may adopt or modify from time to time.

To redeem Points, a Member must select the Reward in the Rewards Center and request the redemption. Upon requesting a Reward in the Rewards Program, Members will be required to warrant and represent that they are not prohibited by the terms of their employment, contract, law, regulation, practice, or any code of conduct or industry standard, from accepting a Reward and that, if it is necessary, they will obtain their employer’s or institution’s approval prior to ordering the Reward. Responsibility for providing this warranty is solely the responsibility of the Member.

By participating in the program Members understand and agree to allow a minimum of 4 weeks for fulfillment of a selected Reward. The availability of any Reward or benefits offered in the Member Program is subject to change without notice at any time and subject to availability at the sole discretion of Sponsor.
