Chalkboard Rewards Fundraising Program

www.ChalkboardRewards.com (“Chalkboard Rewards”) offers a service that allows members to raise funds when making purchases at many online stores. Joining and using Chalkboard Rewards is free and simple, requiring only your email address and a password to get started. Chalkboard Rewards does not sell or rent your personal information to third parties, and Chalkboard Rewards does not ‘spam’ its members. Chalkboard Rewards does not install or require you to install software on your computer. In other words, there is no ‘catch’. Chalkboard Rewards receives a fee for referring buyers to affiliated stores and uses that fee to pay Fundraising Programs.

Please read this complete member agreement (“Agreement”) for full details on the Chalkboard Rewards Fundraising Program (“Program”).

Becoming a Member

By enrolling as a Member in the Program (“Member”), or by utilizing any of Chalkboard Rewards’ shopping applications (“Applications”), you agree to be bound by this Agreement. Enrollment as a Member is simple: you must provide an email. Members must be at least eighteen years old and agree not to use the Program for any illegal or fraudulent activity. Please be aware that participation in the Program and the opportunity to earn funds are offered at the sole discretion of Chalkboard Rewards, and Chalkboard Rewards has the right to change this Agreement in whole or in part, at any time, with or without notice.

Earning Funds

Receiving a portion of your purchases as a fundraiser (“Fundraising”) is straightforward. Choose a store, product, coupon or other offer displayed on Chalkboard Rewards.com or a Chalkboard Rewards application, click the accompanying shopping link to be directed to an affiliated store’s website (“Affiliate Store”), and complete a purchase to earn funds for your program. Specific Fundraising amounts vary by store and product category and are provided in detail at Chalkboard Rewards.com. Please note that the net purchase amount excludes taxes, fees, shipping, gift-wrapping, discounts or credits, returns or cancellations, and extended warranties.

Certain Affiliate Stores exclude a limited number of products and purchases from the Program. Chalkboard Rewards does its best to minimize and maintain an up-to-date list of exclusions on Chalkboard Rewards.com. Additionally, to earn Funds, you must complete your purchase during the same shopping session you start after clicking on the Chalkboard Rewards link. If you visit other sites before completing your purchase or use coupons not provided by Chalkboard Rewards, your purchase might be associated with a service other than Chalkboard Rewards and you might not earn charity funding on your purchase. If you disable ‘cookies’ on your computer you will not be able to earn Funds as cookies are used to authenticate the user and be certain Funds are assigned to the Member account.

 

Receiving Payment

To receive payment of accrued Funds and any other rewards, you must establish and maintain an active account with Chalkboard Rewards (“Active Account”) with the information necessary to process your payment: a valid email address at which you are able to receive email, a valid postal address at which you are able to receive mail, your first and last name, and a password to protect your account. To maintain your Active Account, you must update your information if it changes and have shopped via Chalkboard Rewards.com or a Chalkboard Rewards Application or have accrued Charity funding at any time within the last twelve (12) months.

Chalkboard Rewards pays its members accrued Funds and other rewards every 3 months, at a minimum. Chalkboard Rewards pays members in U.S. dollars via check, ACH, and sometimes other payment options. Members may select or change their payment options by contacting Chalkboard Rewards. If your check expires without being cashed or deposited or if it is returned to Chalkboard Rewards, it will be returned to your account, where it will be subject to inactive account maintenance charges described below. Each payment represents Fundraising and other rewards earned and accrued during the prior quarter based on the schedule below. The minimum payment amount is $100.01. Balances below $100.01 remain in your account for potential payment during the next payment period.

If your account is inactive for more than twelve (12) consecutive months, Chalkboard Rewards reserves the right to debit your Chalkboard Rewards account balance five dollars ($5.00) per month to recover the cost of account maintenance until (i) you reactivate your account by starting a shopping session via Chalkboard Rewards.com or Chalkboard Rewards’ Applications, completing a qualifying purchase, or updating your account information (providing a valid name, email and mailing address), or (ii) your account balance is zero. If the balance in your inactive account is or becomes zero, Chalkboard Rewards will close the account permanently and cease to maintain your account records and Program access.
