SchoolCash Add-ons

SchoolCash Terms and Conditions (Revised February, 2004)


Family Education Network operates an interactive online program called SchoolCash ("SchoolCash") that enables its users ("Users") to access the Web sites of third-party merchants ("Merchants") to purchase certain goods or services from such Merchants' sites, and to earn rebates ("Rebates") generated by their purchases and based on referral fees paid to SchoolCash by Merchants. SchoolCash enables Users to direct rebates to a SchoolCash school or group ("Designated Group"). The amount of the rebate will be in accordance with SchoolCash's policy in effect at the time purchase is made.

SchoolCash has the sole authority to determine which Merchants participate in the SchoolCash program and the amount of rebate for such Merchant. SchoolCash will make every effort to exclude from the SchoolCash program merchants that sell or provide explicit materials, adults themes, foul language, or offensive materials.

Acknowledgement and Acceptance:
By enrolling and/or using the SchoolCash Program and website, you acknowledge and accept this Agreement ("Agreement") and that your membership in SchoolCash shall conform to its terms and conditions.

Terms of Participation:
Only individuals 18 years or older and residing in the U.S., U.S. territories, or a member of the U.S. Military (or a U.S. Military family member living overseas) may enroll in SchoolCash and become Users.

If a Designated Group has accumulated rebates in its account but does not Enroll (defined below) within 360 days of the date on which the last rebate was earned, then the Designated Group will forfeit rebates in its account and such rebates will revert to SchoolCash for its own use. The User shall have no rights to the rebate upon forfeiture of the said rebate by the Designated Group. To be considered "Enrolled" a Designated Group must assign a SchoolCash Coordinator that verifies the address and payment information of the Designated Group and agrees to the Terms of Use. Once the Designated Group is Enrolled, it is eligible to receive rebate checks.

SchoolCash issues payment three times annually to Designated Groups who have accrued $5 or more in rebates. Checks are mailed to the address of record for each Designated Group. SchoolCash is not responsible for lost or stolen checks once issued.

SchoolCash reserves the right to publish on its website and in collateral and other marketing or informational materials the name, city, and state of Designated Groups and aggregate earnings of any such Designated Group.

Individuals and Groups:
Users and Designated Group members agree not to abuse SchoolCash privileges by conduct which is detrimental to the interests of SchoolCash, including without limitation attempting to accrue rebates in a manner inconsistent with the rules of SchoolCash or intent of this Agreement, attempting to earn rebates through other than legitimate channels, participating in purchasing fraud, etc.

SchoolCash reserves the right to terminate or disable, at SchoolCash's sole discretion, any SchoolCash membership if SchoolCash believes such Designated Group or User has violated or acted inconsistently with the rules of SchoolCash or intent of this Agreement. User understands and agrees disabling of membership will result in User's inability to earn rebates. User understands and agrees termination of membership will result in the cancellation of all of User's unpaid rebates. A Designated Group may also request to be removed from SchoolCash, and by doing so may forfeit all unpaid rebates to SchoolCash.

SchoolCash shall be the sole determiner in cases of suspected abuse, fraud, or violation of its rules and any decision it makes relating to termination of membership (including cancellation of unpaid rebates) shall be final and binding.

Restrictions:
User is not authorized to make any representations or warranties to a Designated Group regarding the rebates or the SchoolCash program. The rebates are made by SchoolCash and are not tax-deductible by User. At its sole and exclusive discretion, SchoolCash reserves the right to refuse any school or organization or any User entry into the SchoolCash program, for any reason or no reason at all.

Limitations:
User understands that SchoolCash does not operate or control the products or services offered by Merchants. Merchants are responsible for all aspects of order processing, fulfillment, billing and customer service. SchoolCash is not a party to the transactions entered into between Users and Merchants. USER AGREES THAT USE OF THE SCHOOLCASH PROGRAM IS AT THE SOLE RISK OF USER AND THAT THE SCHOOLCASH PROGRAM IS PROVIDED "AS IS" AND WITHOUT WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, EXPRESS, IMPLIED OR OTHERWISE, INCLUDING THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF TITLE, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, MERCHANTABILITY OR NON-INFRINGEMENT. UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES SHALL SCHOOLCASH OR ITS AFFILIATES BE LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGES ARISING FROM THE TRANSACTIONS BETWEEN USERS AND MERCHANTS OR FOR ANY INFORMATION APPEARING ON MERCHANT SITES OR ANY OTHER SITE LINKED TO THE SCHOOLCASH.COM SITE. IN NO EVENT SHALL SCHOOLCASH NOR ITS AFFILIATES BE LIABLE TO USERS FOR ANY INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES OF ANY KIND.

Intellectual Property:

Users are prohibited from using any Marks for any purpose without the written permission of Pearson Education, Inc. or such third party who may own the Marks.
