PLEASE READ THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS CAREFULLY BEFORE USING THIS SITE
1. How the site works
Cashblack is a platform that offers cashback rewards to our members when they shop online at retailers who identify as Black-owned.
So how does the cashback process work?
When you click through to a retailer advertised on our site www.cashblack.com (“Site”), we are in effect, acting as an advertising agent for the retailers by sending them online customers and traffic. In return for this, the retailers (and their tracking agencies) pay us commission. It is this commission that we pay to you in cash (‘Cashback’).
Why do we do this? We do this because we hope to provide a greater platform for otherwise marginalised businesses so as to get closer to achieving our long term goal on decreasing the racial wealth gap.
To keep this all running smoothly, we do need to introduce some terms and conditions of site membership, as set out here on this page.
2. By using our Site you accept these terms
3. There are other terms that may apply to you
- Our Acceptable Use Policy, which sets out the permitted uses and prohibited uses of our site. When using our site, you must comply with this Acceptable Use Policy.
4. Site membership and usage
4.1 One account is allowed per person. We are happy for you to make the occasional cashback transaction on behalf of other family members or close friends. This is subject at all times to fair usage and one account should not be used to make purchases on behalf of many other people.
4.2 The legal owner of the email address used to sign up to the Site is deemed to be the account owner. Any Cashback earned by a third party using the account will be credited to the account as if you had made the transaction yourself.
4.3 Any use of our Site is made based on the assumption that full authority has been obtained from all relevant parties. This may include but is not limited to employers, friends, family and businesses.
4.5 By joining the site, you confirm you are over 18.
5. Earning Cashback
You’re all signed up and ready to earn. What else do you need to know about Cashback?
5.1 The first thing to remember is that all the transactions you make are directly with the retailer, not us. When you make a purchase via the Site with a retailer, it is tracked using cookies and various other technologies which allow the retailer to identify that a purchase has been made, who made it and where it came from. Once the retailer or tracking network has identified the purchase and acknowledged it, it will show up in your account as ‘pending’. When the retailer validates the purchase it may show in your account as ‘confirmed’. Once we have received the commission from the retailer, it will then show up in your account as ‘payable’ (“Payable Cashback”). You are then free to withdraw your money in accordance with any payout terms and conditions applicable at the time of payout.
5.2 Cashback shall only be paid on transactions that fulfill the following criteria:
a) Clicking through to the retailer via the main ‘Continue’ button on the Site. Clicking through to a retailer via any other link or a sponsored advert will not activate the tracking and no commission will be received by us.
b) Completing your purchase from the point of clicking through to the retailer. Navigating away from our Site to a third party or failing to complete your transaction in full at the time of clicking through may result in the transaction failing to track to your account.
c) A genuine purchase is being made. Repeat purchases may not qualify for Cashback and you must purchase for genuine reasons. By making a transaction via the Site you acknowledge that it is at the retailer’s entire discretion to determine whether a transaction is genuine and you acknowledge that we will not be liable for any Cashback where a retailer has deemed a transaction disingenuous.
d) Notification from the retailer or their tracking network that a transaction has been tracked directly back your Cashblack account by an identifying tag. If you are not logged in to your Cashblack account when you make your purchase, there will be no identifying tag matching you with the transaction taking place.
e) Notification from the retailer or their tracking network that your purchase is a qualifying transaction. As explained above, whether or not a purchase is a qualifying transaction is entirely at the discretion of the retailer and you acknowledge that we will not be liable for any Cashback to you if the retailer does not accept your transaction as a qualifying transaction.
f) A valid account is in place. If your account is terminated or disabled for any reason, then any Cashback payable will be deemed to be forfeited.
g) Cashback may be declined if all or part of your order is returned, amended or cancelled.
5.3 You acknowledge and agree that in order for us and the affiliate networks to track and confirm your purchase (as explained at 5.1 above), the affiliate networks will share the order ID relating to your purchase with us
5.4 If you notify us that a transaction has not been reported in your account as you anticipated (a ‘Claim’) we will use reasonable endeavors to investigate such Claim with the retailer or tracking agency subject always to our right to cease investigations at any point at our entire discretion.
5.5a You acknowledge that the retailer or it’s tracking agency’s decision is final in relation to the payment of commission to us and in turn, our decision is final in relation to paying Cashback to you. We will make all reasonable endeavors to secure the payment of commission on a transaction but we do not and cannot make any guarantee in this regard. In the event we do not receive the expected commission for a transaction for whatever reason, we will not be liable to pay the relevant Cashback to you.
5.5b Estimated Payable dates displayed on transactions are purely for guidance only and are not a guaranteed date for the receipt of the funds. Where the estimated payable date for the commission on a transaction has surpassed and/or the progression is delayed, we will not be liable to pay the relevant cashback to you.
5.6 We do reserve the right to reclaim or adjust any Cashback payments in the event that any Cashback has been paid to you in error. This may include but not be limited to transactions where Cashback is not genuinely due to you or where any commission for a transaction has not been received from a retailer or its agencies but been paid over to you as Cashback in error.
5.7 It is important to note that we do not hold money in your account similar to a bank and legal title to any cashback earnings does not pass to you until you have taken possession of the cashback by way of a successful withdrawal from your Cashblack account.
5.8 For the avoidance of doubt and notwithstanding any other provision contained in these terms and conditions, you agree and acknowledge that in all circumstances the payment of Cashback to you is at our discretion and we may refuse to pay Cashback to you for any reason.
6. Cashing out
6.1 You can submit a request to withdraw any Payable Cashback from your account at any time. Please note that that if you change your payment details, for security reasons there will be a 72 hour delay before you can request your Cashback.
6.2 You may only request one payout option in any 24 hour period.
6.3 You may withdraw your Payable Cashback from your account by available options. Payout methods may stipulate a minimum value threshold being reached before allowing you to withdraw your Payable Cashback. You should always check the terms of each payout method before withdrawing your Payable Cashback.
6.4 It is your responsibility to ensure your correct payout details are submitted. We shall not be responsible for any Payable Cashback being sent to an incorrect destination where you have provided incorrect details. Such payments may not be recoverable and or may be subject to a recovery fee.
6.5 The time between requesting payment of your Payable Cashback and it being credited to your chosen payout method may vary. We shall not be liable for any delays in this regard or for any consequences of any delays which may occur.
6.6 We reserve the right to suspend Payable Cashback payments at any time without notice to you if we reasonably suspect fraudulent activity has taken place.
6.7 Any donations of Payable Cashback to those selected charities on our Site are recorded and added together until a minimum of £30 donation has been reached for an individual charity. This minimises the administration for both us and the chosen charity. Once this £30 threshold has been reached, we will pass on the entire total of the donations directly to the charity with no charge for administration, resulting in 100% of the donated Payable Cashback being donated to the chosen charities.
7. Cashback Top Up
7.1 We’ve already established that we are the highest paying cashback provider in the UK. Alongside this, we may also pass on additional cashback (‘Cashback Top Up’) out of our own pocket where retailers allow us to do so. Where cashback Top Up is applied, it can only be added to your account when it equates to £0.01 and over which means that some low value transactions may not be eligible for a Cashback Top Up.
8. Managing your account
8.1 Be sure to keep your account up to date with your current email address to make sure you don’t miss out on any important information about your account. If we don’t have a serviceable email address or if you mark our emails as spam, junk or abusive, we may terminate your account.
8.3 You agree to ensure your username on the Site is not offensive nor used in any way which may represent any trademarks or brand names. If we detect any usernames contravening this provision we shall contact you and request that you update this. Failure by you to respond within 14 days may result in your account being terminated and any earnings forfeited.
9. Termination of your account
9.1 You can cancel your membership at any time (although we have no idea why you would wish to, there are no catches, so you can‘t lose out). You can cancel your membership simply by clicking the appropriate link within your account settings and following instructions.
9.2 In the event of fraudulent, abusive or other activity we determine to be unfair, we reserve the right to terminate your account.
9.3 Please note that accounts may be disabled if they are deemed at our discretion to be dormant. In order to keep your account active, you are required to log into your account least once every 6 months (although you are not required to make any purchase).
10. Voucher codes
10.1 Where a voucher code (also known as a discount code or coupon code) is advertised on our Site, we give no guarantee that it is valid and we shall not be held liable in any way whatsoever if a voucher code fails to apply a discount. Furthermore, you acknowledge that use of a voucher code from our Site and used in conjunction with a cashback offer may result in you failing to receive Cashback in accordance with the terms of the offer as stipulated on the Site from time to time.
10.2 You acknowledge that voucher codes not obtained from our Site but used in conjunction with a cashback offer will often result in your Cashback not being awarded.
11. Tell a friend (Referral Scheme)
