FIZZ BENEFITS LIMITED
TERMS AND CONDITIONS
GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS
The use of FizzBenefits.com is subject to the following terms and conditions.
FizzBenefits.com is owned and operated by Fizz Benefits Ltd (referred to as ‘we’ or ‘us’ below). Fizz Benefits operates this shopping discounts solution on behalf of your membership organisation.
By entering our site or enrolling, you as a user (referred to as ‘you’ or ‘member’ below) are accepting our terms and conditions.
SITE MEMBERSHIP & TERMINATION OF ACCOUNTS
Firstly, we should let you know that you can, of course, cancel your membership with FizzBenefits.com at any time. This does not affect your status with any membership organisation you may be part of.
We are happy for you to make the occasional cashback transaction on behalf of other family members or close friends. In other words, we don’t insist that each family member or close friend necessarily have to create their own account. This is subject to fair usage however and one account should not be used to make purchases on behalf of many other people.
One account is allowed per UK resident. That person must be living in the UK to qualify for an account and receive cashback from our advertised merchants. This is a condition that many of our merchants insist upon. Members are to be 18 years and over in age.
We reserve the right to refuse shopper discount membership and further, in the event of fraudulent, abusive or other activity we determine to be un-fair, we reserve the right to terminate your shopper discount account. In addition, please note that the shopper discount accounts may be disabled if they are deemed to be dormant accounts.
As a condition of shopper discount membership, you will need to accept service emails from Fizz Benefits and authenticate your email address.
We reserve the right to terminate a shopper discounts member's account if a serviceable email address is not provided and also if that member marks our emails as abusive junk or spam.
As an enrolled Fizz Benefits member you may earn 'cashback' or a cash reward from a number of Merchants as illustrated on the website. Note that all transactions you make are not with us, but with the individual retailer. We pass on the cashback we earn from merchants and their tracking agencies for your applicable transactions, where the credit can be traced directly to your account by means of an identification tag provided in the reports of the merchants and their tracking agencies.
Cashback amounts offered to our members may vary from commission received by us based on terms and conditions imposed by individual retailers and their agents, or for any other reason at our discretion. Any added cashback bonus must be £0.01 or more for it to be applied to your transaction. Some low value transactions may not therefore be eligible for a cashback bonus.
From time to time merchants may increase or decrease the commission paid in which case the cashback offer illustrated on our site may be incorrect. We take reasonable care and skill to ensure that the data provided on this site is accurate and up to date. However, we give no warranty of the accuracy of any information on the site and do not accept liability for any errors or omissions; neither do we accept liability for any resulting damage or loss. Further, we take reasonable care and skill to ensure the correct functionality of the website, however we give no warranty of the functionality and do not accept liability for any errors. By default, your applicable transactions will be credited in line with the commission reported to us by the retailer, which may be more or less than the advertised rate. Some retailers pay cashback on the purchase amount inclusive of tax and/or delivery charges and some retailers exclude these values for the purpose of calculating and awarding cashback.
When we have traced a paying, applicable transaction to your account, we will credit your account with a ‘pending payment’. Once the retailer confirms the transaction, the payment will be marked as ‘confirmed’ – this can take 30 days or more from the date of the purchase. If the goods are returned or the sale reversed or amended by any means then the cashback payment will not be made.
Applicable transactions for cashback can be defined as transactions that fulfil the following criteria:
a. Transactions which are tracked directly back to your shopper discounts account by means of an identifying tag, as reported to us by the merchants and/or their tracking networks. Please note that you must be logged into our site at the time you click through to the merchant in order to have your transaction tracked by means of the identifying tag.
b. You also must click through to the merchant via the main ‘Continue’ or ‘Continue to Merchant’ buttons on our site.
c. Certain repeat purchases also may not qualify for cashback and you must purchase for genuine reasons. You must complete your transaction after clicking directly through to the merchant from whom you wish to purchase (not via any other third-party sites) from the Fizz Benefits website and purchases must then be completed immediately and wholly online. If the merchant decides your transaction wasn’t genuine for any reason, or if the merchant decides that your custom, (whether tracked or not), was deemed to have been provided by another website (such as but not limited to a comparison site or a search engine) then your transaction will not be applicable.
d. If your account is terminated or disabled for any other reason, then your cashback will be forfeit and any further transactions which might otherwise become credited to your shopper discounts account will not be deemed to be applicable.
Please note that you can maximise your chances of earning commission over several purchases if you click through to the merchant site from Fizz Benefits directly before each purchase.
We cannot be held responsible if the merchant fails to report your sale to us. Merchants have their own rules upon which they determine transactions to be genuine, i.e. An attempt to simply earn money by clicking/registering with no intention to continue to use/buy from their website could be deemed as non-genuine. These rules may or may not be advertised by ourselves or the merchant and may be discretionary.
If you are associated with more than one Fizz Benefits account (i.e. husband and wife) then allowed transaction recurrences may be determined across these multiple accounts as part of fraudulent usage prevention.
Whilst we will endeavour to recover non-payments from the retailer, the decision of ourselves, the retailer or retailer’s tracking agent is final. Whilst we will try and recover missing cashback, at any point we reserve the right not to chase missing cashback claims, particularly where no purchase has been made.
Where a cashback enquiry has been successfully paid by a merchant, you may receive a lower amount than expected; this is due to the amounts received by ourselves possibly being lower than the original claim. We do allow you to query this with us. If a merchant still hasn't paid a manual cashback claim after a period of six months then we reserve the right to close the enquiry claim.
Fizz Benefits reserves the right to reclaim or make balance adjustments accordingly where it has been established that any credit has been applied in error. This will include but is not limited to transactions where the credit is not genuinely due or payment for any credited transaction has not been received from a merchant or its agencies. This can include transactions which are already marked as Payable in your Fizz Benefits account, or for transactions which have already been paid over to you. Fizz Benefits reserves the right to apply fraudulent prevention measures as it sees fit.
For the avoidance of doubt and notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement or the Website, you agree that in all circumstances payment of Cashback is at our sole discretion and further we may refuse to make payment of Cashback to you for any reason including but not limited to non-payment or late payment by the Merchant.
Cashback payments will be issued at your request. You will be able to request a cashback payment once you have any PAYABLE funds in your account. There is no lower threshold limit before you can withdraw your payable funds by pre-paid MasterCard. Commission payments received by ourselves are held as our funds until such time as they are sent in the form of cashback to our members. Once a payment has been made there may be a small period before you can request your next payment.
Should a retailer delay payment or cease trading then we will make every reasonable effort to recover your cashback but we can make no guarantees to payment until funds have been received from the retailer or their agents.
Individual payment methods may be limited or withdrawn on a discretionary basis to ensure only UK payment transactions are made as per our membership terms. Payment details must be kept accurate by yourself to avoid losing any due payments. Payments made to incorrect destinations are not always recoverable and may be subject to a recovery fee. We will not be held liable for any delays, or consequences of delays in payment. At any point we reserve the right to put payment requests on hold pending any investigation, this may be the case where unusual account activity is detected and verification is therefore required in order to deem the transactions as genuine.
DIGITAL STORE VOUCHERS
Fizz Benefits will fulfil and email the Digital vouchers to the designated member at the designated email address as provided by the member when placing their orders. For each digital voucher a separate order must be made. We are unable to combine multiple orders.
If the voucher is held in stock the order will be processed instantly and you should receive your email within a matter of minutes. If your order is out of stock Fizz will order the stock and email you the voucher as soon as is possible. This varies from retailer to retailer, but we would normally expect to fulfil the order within 2 working days but this can take up to 5 working days.
The service level commitment set forth in the immediately preceding sentence shall not apply in the event of an extraordinary increase in voucher order volumes so long as Fizz Benefits is diligently working to fulfil all such voucher orders within a reasonable time.
Fizz Benefits will maintain a sufficient inventory of digital vouchers for fulfilment as described above.
Fizz Benefits will use all reasonable efforts to maintain a sufficient inventory of vouchers to avoid having any such delay impact the timing of shipping of any vouchers. In the event that any retailer delays would cause Fizz Benefits to be unable to ship any vouchers for more than five (5) business days after the originally scheduled shipping date, Fizz Benefits shall notify members.
Fizz Benefits’ are unable to process refund in most cases as the digital vouchers are unable to be cancelled however some retailers do have the ability to cancel their voucher and for these orders, we will endeavour to cancel this voucher and refund the member. Any refunds will be handled by our help desk and are dealt with on a case by case basis.
Members will alert Fizz Benefits regarding non-receipt of ordered digital vouchers. Fizz Benefits will investigate whether the ordered voucher balance is still intact. Fizz Benefits will contact the relevant retailer to seek to arrange a balance transfer to a new voucher and reship. Should the voucher balance have been spent, the member will be liable for the replacement of the order.
Retailers have different policies and practices regarding deactivating and providing credits for lost or stolen vouchers. Fizz Benefits shall not be liable for any refusal of a retailer to deactivate and provide a credit for a lost or stolen voucher. After receipt of the accurate order by the member, the member assumes all risks associated with the vouchers and no voucher returns will be accepted.
In order to minimize our administration overhead, or for any other reason, we reserve the right to terminate dormant shopper discount accounts. In order to keep a shopper discount account active and ensure it doesn’t get marked as dormant, we do not require purchase transactions, but we do require you simply to log in to your shopper discount account at least once every 6 months.
A fee is deduced from any payable cash back and any savings made from store vouchers. This fee is set at 5% of the payable amount but can be subject to change at any time. There are no fees to pay by Credit or Debit cards and no processing fees within Fizz.
MODIFICATION OF AGREEMENT
We may modify any of the terms and conditions contained in this Agreement, at any time and at our sole discretion for any reason. We will post the revised agreement on this website. The new terms will come into effect no later than 30 days after the modification.
Our failure to enforce your strict performance of any provision of this Agreement will not constitute a waiver of our right to subsequently enforce such provision or any other provision of this Agreement.

HOW SECURE IS YOUR DATA HELD BY US?
At Fizz Benefits, we treat the security of your data extremely seriously and have a number of measures in place to ensure that your data isn’t compromised or accessed unless absolutely necessary to offer our services.

Cookies are small pieces of data or information that are stored by a users browser onto their hard-drive. The information cannot be seen by any other websites (so the information is secure) and is used by us to provide features to aid the use of our services.
In order to track your purchases, cookies are stored on your computer; they simply store tracking information so that when you visit a merchant via Fizz Benefits, any purchases made will result in the merchant reading this information. The merchant will then send us information about your purchase, at which point we can then credit your account.

You may refuse to accept cookies by adjusting the settings of your browser software, however, if you do not have cookies enabled, third-party merchants will not record your purchases and you will not be able to earn cashback from our service.
Cookies are used by Fizz Benefits to perform the below functions:
1. To track your transactions. When you make a purchase on a merchant's site it is third party cookies used by our tracking agency that give us the information to track your cashback. Specifically, it tells us which retailer's site you've clicked through to and when. If you've made a purchase this cookie will be used by the merchant to recognise Fizz Benefits as the referrer and hence report the relevant cashback to us.
2. To test if your tracking works.
3. For us to recognise your user account and to keep you logged in to your Account for a period of time.
4. To show you deals based on your behaviour during that session e.g. ‘Recently Visited Merchants’
5. Allow us to comply with your choices about the display of information in your Account.
6. Remember the options you select.
We do not send Junk Email or Spam!
Typically, we send you one or two emails a week that highlight offers and discounts. If you do not wish to receive the emails you have a number of options:
• Opt out of marketing emails when you first register by clicking on the email link contained within your ‘complete registration’ email or,
• Email us at any time firstname.lastname@example.org or,
• Open the email and select the Unsubscribe option
A few of our service emails are essential to allow the use of Fizz Benefits and so it is not possible to opt-out of receiving these.

Whenever we transfer your personal data out of the EEA, we ensure a similar degree of protection is afforded to it by ensuring at least one of the following safeguards is implemented:
• We will only transfer your personal data to countries that have been deemed to provide an adequate level of protection for personal data by the European Commission.
• Where we use certain service providers, we may use specific contracts approved by the European Commission which give personal data the same protection it has in Europe.
• Where we use providers based in the US, we may transfer data to them if they are part of the Privacy Shield which requires them to provide similar protection to personal data shared between Europe and the US.
Please contact us at Privacy@fizzbenefitsyou.com if you want further information on the specific mechanism used by us when transferring your personal data out of the EEA.
7. DATA SECURITY
We treat the security of your data extremely seriously and have a number of measures in place to ensure that your data is not compromised or accessed unless absolutely necessary to offer our services.
All of our data is held on secure servers and your password is encrypted. Only staff members who need this information to provide the service have access to this data and they will only see limited information. They will only process your personal data on our instructions and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality.
Where we have given you (or you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of our site, you are responsible for keeping this password safe. We ask you not to share your password with anyone.
However, the transmission of data on the internet is not completely secure and is at your own risk. We cannot guarantee the security of data that you transmit to our website but we will do our best to protect your personal data and we will use strict procedures and security features to prevent unauthorised access to it.
We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so.
8. DATA RETENTION
HOW LONG WILL YOU USE MY PERSONAL DATA FOR?
We will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements.
To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.
Details of retention periods for different aspects of your personal data are available in our retention policy which you can request from us by contacting us at Privacy@fizzbenefitsyou.com
In some circumstances you can ask us to delete your data.
In some circumstances we may anonymise your personal data (so that it can no longer be associated with you) for research or statistical purposes in which case we may use this information indefinitely without further notice to you.

Request correction of the personal data that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate data we hold about you corrected, though we may need to verify the accuracy of the new data you provide to us. You can update your details on your account by logging into your account and going to your Account. If you believe that we hold any inaccurate information about you, you can contact us by emailing Privacy@fizzbenefitsyou.com.
Request erasure of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal data where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal data where you have successfully exercised your right to object to processing (see below), where we may have processed your information unlawfully or where we are required to erase your personal data to comply with local law. Note, however, that we may not always be able to comply with your request of erasure for specific legal reasons which will be notified to you, if applicable, at the time of your request.
Object to processing of your personal data where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground as you feel it impacts on your fundamental rights and freedoms. You also have the right to object where we are processing your personal data for direct marketing purposes. In some cases, we may demonstrate that we have compelling legitimate grounds to process your information which override your rights and freedoms.
Request restriction of processing of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of your personal data in the following scenarios: (a) if you want us to establish the data’s accuracy; (b) where our use of the data is unlawful but you do not want us to erase it; (c) where you need us to hold the data even if we no longer require it as you need it to establish, exercise or defend legal claims; or (d) you have objected to our use of your data but we need to verify whether we have overriding legitimate grounds to use it.
Request the transfer of your personal data to you or to a third party. We will provide to you, or a third party you have chosen, your personal data in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format. Note that this right only applies to automated information which you initially provided consent for us to use or where we used the information to perform a contract with you.
Withdraw consent at any time where we are relying on consent to process your personal data. However, this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdraw your consent. If you withdraw your consent, we may not be able to provide certain products or services to you. We will advise you if this is the case at the time you withdraw your consent.
If you wish to exercise any of the rights set out above, please contact us at Privacy@fizzbenefitsyou.com
NO FEE USUALLY REQUIRED
You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal data (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances.
WHAT WE MAY NEED FROM YOU
We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal data (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response.
TIME LIMIT TO RESPOND
We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally it may take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests. In this case, we will notify you and keep you updated.
