DISPUTE RESOLUTION AND MANDATORY ARBITRATION; CLASS ACTION WAIVER

Please Read This Provision Carefully. It Affects Your Legal Rights.

Application. This Arbitration Agreement only applies to you if your country of residence or establishment is the United States. If your country of residence or establishment is not the United States, and you nevertheless attempt to bring any legal claim against Blendid in the United States, this Arbitration Agreement will apply for determination of the threshold issue of whether this “Dispute Resolution and Mandatory Arbitration; Class Action Waiver” section (“Dispute Resolution Section”) applies to you, and all other threshold determinations, including residency, arbitrability, venue, and applicable law. 

Overview of Dispute Resolution Process. Blendid is committed to participating in a consumer-friendly dispute resolution process. To that end, these Terms of Use provide for a two-part process for individuals to whom this Dispute Resolution Section applies: (1) an informal negotiation directly with Blendid (described in the “Mandatory Pre-Arbitration Dispute Resolution and Notification” section below), and if necessary, (2) a binding arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”). You and Blendid each retain the right to seek relief in small claims court as an alternative to arbitration. 

Mandatory Pre-Arbitration Dispute Resolution and Notification. At least 45 days prior to initiating an arbitration, you and Blendid each agree to notify the other party of the dispute in writing and attempt in good faith to negotiate an informal resolution. You must send your notice of dispute to Blendid by emailing it to privacy@blendid.com. Blendid will send its notice of dispute to the email address associated with your Blendid account, if any. A notice of dispute must include: the party’s name, preferred contact information, a brief description of the dispute, and the relief sought. If the parties are unable to resolve the dispute within the 45-day period, only then may either party commence arbitration by filing a written Demand for Arbitration (available at www.adr.org) with the AAA and providing a copy to the other party as specified in the AAA Rules (available at www.adr.org ).

Agreement to Arbitrate. You and Blendid mutually agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to these Terms of Use or the applicability, breach, termination, validity, enforcement or interpretation thereof, or any use of the Blendid Online Services (collectively, “Disputes”) will be settled by binding individual arbitration (the “Arbitration Agreement”). If there is a dispute about whether this Arbitration Agreement can be enforced or applies to our Dispute, you and Blendid agree that the arbitrator will decide that issue. 
Exceptions to Arbitration Agreement. You and Blendid each agree that the following causes of action and/or claims for relief are exceptions to the Arbitration Agreement and will be brought in a judicial proceeding in a court of competent jurisdiction (as set forth in the “Governing Law and Venue” section below): (i) any claim or cause of action alleging actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party’s copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property rights; (ii) any claim or cause of action seeking emergency injunctive relief based on exigent circumstances (e.g., imminent danger or commission of a crime, hacking, cyber-attack); or (iii) a request for the remedy of public injunctive relief. You and Blendid agree that the remedy of public injunctive relief will proceed after the arbitration of all arbitrable claims, remedies, or causes of action, and will be stayed pending the outcome of the arbitration pursuant to section 3 of the Federal Arbitration Act.

Arbitration Rules and Governing Law. This Arbitration Agreement evidences a transaction in interstate commerce and the Federal Arbitration Act governs all substantive and procedural interpretation and enforcement of this provision. The arbitration will be administered by AAA in accordance with the Consumer Arbitration Rules and/or other AAA arbitration rules determined to be applicable by the AAA (the “AAA Rules“) then in effect, except as modified here. The AAA Rules are available at www.adr.org. In order to initiate arbitration, a completed written demand (available at www.adr.org ) must be filed with the AAA and provided to the other party, as specified in the AAA rules.

Modification to AAA Rules – Arbitration Hearing/Location. In order to make the arbitration most convenient to you, Blendid agrees that any required arbitration hearing may be conducted, at your option: (a) in Sunnyvale, CA; (b) via phone or video conference; or (c) if all parties agree, by solely the submission of documents to the arbitrator.

Modification of AAA Rules – Attorney’s Fees and Costs. Your arbitration fees and your share of arbitrator compensation shall be governed by the AAA Rules and, where appropriate, limited by the AAA Consumer Rules. If such costs are determined by the arbitrator to be excessive, Blendid will pay all arbitration fees and expenses. Either party may make a request that the arbitrator award attorneys’ fees and costs upon proving that the other party has asserted a claim, cross-claim or defense that is groundless in fact or law, brought in bad faith or for the purpose of harassment, or is otherwise frivolous, as allowed by applicable law and the AAA Rules.

Arbitrator’s Decision. The arbitrator’s decision will include the essential findings and conclusions upon which the arbitrator based the award. Judgment on the arbitration award may be entered in any court with proper jurisdiction. The arbitrator may award any relief allowed by law or the AAA Rules, but declaratory or injunctive relief may be awarded only on an individual basis and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by the claimant’s individual claim.

No Class Actions or Representative Proceedings. You and Blendid acknowledge and agree that, to the fullest extent permitted by law, we are each waiving the right to participate as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class action lawsuit, class-wide arbitration, private attorney general action, or any other representative or consolidated proceeding. Unless we agree in writing, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one party’s claims and may not otherwise preside over any form of any class or representative proceeding. If there is a final judicial determination that applicable law precludes enforcement of the waiver contained in this paragraph as to any claim, cause of action or requested remedy, then that claim, cause of action or requested remedy, and only that claim, cause of action or requested remedy, will be severed from this agreement to arbitrate and will be brought in a court of competent jurisdiction. In the event that a claim, cause of action or requested remedy is severed pursuant to this paragraph, then you and we agree that the claims, causes of action or requested remedies that are not subject to arbitration will be stayed until all arbitrable claims, causes of action and requested remedies are resolved by the arbitrator.

Severability. Except as provided in the “No Class Actions or Representative Proceedings” section above, in the event that any portion of this Arbitration Agreement is deemed illegal or unenforceable, such provision will be severed and the remainder of the Arbitration Agreement will be given full force and effect.

Changes to Agreement to Arbitrate. If Blendid changes this Dispute Resolution Section after the date you last accepted these Terms of Use (or accepted any subsequent changes to these Terms of Use), you may reject that change by sending us written notice (including by email) within 30 days of the date the change is effective. Rejecting a new change, however, does not revoke or alter your prior consent to any earlier agreements to arbitrate any Dispute between you and Blendid (or your prior consent to any subsequent changes thereto), which will remain in effect and enforceable as to any Dispute between you and Blendid.

Right to Opt-Out of Arbitration. Notwithstanding the above, you may choose to opt-out of the Arbitration Agreement (“Opt-Out Notice”). The Opt-Out Notice must be received within 30 days after the date you accept these Terms of Use for the first time (the “Opt-Out Deadline”). In order to opt-out, you must mail (1) your full name; (2) your address (including street address, city, state, and zip/postal code); (3) the email address(es) associated with your Blendid account, if any; and (4) a statement that you do not wish to resolve disputes with Blendid through arbitration. This procedure is the only way you can opt-out of the Arbitration Agreement. Any opt-out request received after the Opt-Out Deadline will not be valid and you must pursue your dispute in arbitration. If you opt-out of the Arbitration Agreement, all other provisions of the Terms of Use will continue to apply to you, including the below venue clause specifying Sunnyvale, CA.
Survival. Except as provided in the “Severability” section above, this Dispute Resolution Section will survive any termination of these Terms of Use and will continue to apply even if you stop using the Blendid Online Services or terminate your Blendid account, if any.

GOVERNING LAW AND VENUE

These Terms of Use shall be governed and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of California applicable to contracts entered into and fully performed in Californa (without regard to its conflicts of law principles that would cause the application of any other jurisdiction’s laws). Judicial proceedings (other than small claims actions) that are excluded from the arbitration agreement set forth above must be brought in state or federal court in Sunnyvale, CA, unless we both agree to some other location. You and we both consent to venue and personal jurisdiction in Sunnyvale, CA. 

MISCELLANEOUS

Interpreting these Terms of Use. Except as they may be supplemented by additional terms, conditions, policies, guidelines, standards, and in-product disclosures, these Terms of Use (including those items incorporated by reference) constitute the entire agreement between Blendid and you pertaining to your access to or use of the Blendid Online Services and supersede any and all prior oral or written understandings or agreements between Blendid and you. These Terms of Use do not and are not intended to confer any rights or remedies upon anyone other than you and Blendid. If any provision of these Terms of Use is held to be invalid or unenforceable, except as otherwise indicated in the “No Class Actions or Representative Proceedings” section above, such provision will be struck and will not affect the validity and enforceability of the remaining provisions. Where the word “will” is used in these Terms of Use it connotes an obligation with the same meaning as “shall.”

No Waiver. Blendid‘s failure to enforce any right or provision in these Terms of Use will not constitute a waiver of such right or provision unless acknowledged and agreed to by us in writing. Except as expressly set forth in these Terms of Use, the exercise by either party of any of its remedies under these Terms of Use will be without prejudice to its other remedies under these Terms of Use or otherwise permitted under law.

Entire Agreement. These Terms of Use constitute the entire agreement of the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersedes all prior or contemporaneous written or oral agreements between the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof. These Terms of Use may not be amended, nor any obligation waived, except by Blendid, or with Blendid’s prior written authorization. Any failure to enforce any provision of these Terms of Use shall not constitute a waiver thereof or of any other provision thereof.

Injunctive Relief. You acknowledge that any breach of this agreement would cause Blendid irreparable injury, such that Blendid would have no adequate remedy at law. You agree that in the event of such breach, Blendid shall be entitled to injunctive relief in addition to any other remedies it may have at law or equity, without the requirement of posting a bond.

In its sole and absolute discretion, Blendid may change, modify, or terminate any and all aspects of the Program including, without limitation, its rules, terms, conditions, or rewards, with or without notice. Such changes may or may not affect previously earned Rewards.

BY ACCESSING OR USING THIS APP AND/OR PARTICIPATING IN THE PROGRAM, YOU AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THE BLENDID REWARDS TERMS, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION, THE BINDING ARBITRATION CLAUSE AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER INCLUDED IN THE TERMS OF USE. THIS AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS ON HOW TO RESOLVE DISPUTES WITH BLENDID. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO ALL OF THESE BLENDID REWARDS TERMS, DO NOT PARTICIPATE IN THIS PROGRAM.

  1. INTRODUCTION.

The Program is an electronic rewards program operated by or on behalf of 6d Bytes Inc. dba Blendid, and/or its parents, affiliates, subsidiaries, and licensees (collectively, “Blendid”). The Program provides eligible Blendid account holders who register for the Program through www.blendid.com (the “Website”) or the App (“Members” or “you”) with the opportunity to earn “Points” by participating in various activities, some of which are described below. You can redeem your Points from time to time for various “Rewards” as set forth below. These Blendid Rewards Terms govern the Program along with any other terms or policies incorporated by reference into these Blendid Rewards Terms. In the event of any conflict or inconsistency between these Blendid Rewards Terms and the terms of any other policies incorporated herein, these Blendid Rewards Terms will prevail, govern and control with respect to any matters pertaining to the Program and the other policies will prevail, govern and control with respect to all other matters. Please read these Blendid Rewards Terms carefully before participating in the Program. Your participation in the Program indicates that you have read, understood, and unconditionally consent and agree to these Blendid Rewards Terms. If you do not agree to these Blendid Rewards Terms, you may not participate in the Program. The Program is only for your own personal use. Members may not use the Program for commercial purposes, or in any way that harms Blendid or any other person or entity, as determined by Blendid in its sole discretion.

  1. ELIGIBILITY.

The Program is open only to Blendid account holders who are legal residents of the fifty (50) United States and the District of Columbia, who are thirteen (13) years of age or older and who register for the Program through the Website or App. Minors must have parental consent. Registration is free. Any person whose access to the Website or App has been terminated or suspended by Blendid is NOT eligible to participate. To participate in the Program, go to the Website or download the App to your Android™ or iPhone® device and submit the information requested on the registration page and confirm your agreement to these Blendid Rewards Terms. Once you complete and submit all the registration information, a Program account (each, an “Account”) will be created for you. All registration information must be completed in full. Memberships can only be used by the Member whose name is listed on the Account. You should not give your password to any other person. You are responsible for all activity in your Account and any use of your password. Limit one (1) Account per person. You cannot have more than one Account. Blendid may, at any time, require you to verify your name and address by means of faxing, emailing, or mailing to Blendid a copy of your driver’s license or other form of identification approved by Blendid, in addition to providing Blendid with a signed statement of legitimacy; and Blendid may automatically require such verification in the case of multiple accounts from the same address, household, computer or IP address. If you attempt to obtain more than one Account, all Points in your Account may be forfeited, and Blendid may, at its sole discretion, terminate your membership and permanently ban you from participating in the Program. Officers, directors and employees of Blendid and its parent, subsidiaries, divisions and affiliates, (each, a “Program Entity,” and collectively, the “Program Entities”) may participate in the Program but may not be allowed to redeem Points for certain Rewards and may otherwise be subject to restrictions that do not generally apply to how Points are earned or used. Additional or different eligibility criteria may apply to certain opportunities to earn or use Points and other invitations made by the Program Entities or their business partners. The Program is provided to individuals only. Corporations, associations, or other groups may not participate in the Program. It will be considered fraudulent for any individual, company, club, association or group to use or to direct, encourage, or allow other persons to use a single Account for the purpose of accumulating or aggregating Points for combined use, unless such use is expressly permitted by Blendid. Participation in the Program constitutes each Member’s permission for the Program Entities to use the Member’s first and last name, username, photograph, likeness, voice, biographical information, statements, address (city and state) and a description of any Rewards won and any other personal characteristics for advertising and/or publicity purposes worldwide and in all forms of media now known or hereafter developed, in perpetuity, without further compensation. To deactivate your Account, please use the Contact Us link on the Website and request that we delete your Account. If you delete your Account this means you will lose any Points, rewards, and offers that may have accrued.

  1. Earning Points and Rewards.

Members have many ways to earn Points and Rewards in the Program. The Program may also award more than one type or “class” of Points. The number of Points and the type or “class” of Points that can be earned by participating in any opportunity to earn Points will be disclosed when the opportunity is presented. Some of the ways Members can earn Points and Rewards may include the following (subject to change):

Signing Up for a Program Account 
You can earn a Reward by completing and submitting your registration information for an Account via the Website or App.

Purchasing Blendid Products at Participating Locations 
You can earn Points by visiting participating Blendid retail stores in the United States and purchasing Blendid products (pre-tax, after applicable discounts and fees, including Groupon or any other third party programs, rounded down to the nearest dollar) or by placing an order via the App or the Website at participating Blendid retail stores in the United States on dine-in, carry-out, delivery, or catering pick-up (excluding the purchase of gift cards or fundraising cards)). You cannot earn points on orders placed through third-party delivery providers, such as UberEats or DoorDash. To earn Points for retail store purchases, enter the phone number associated with your Account at the time of purchase or for purchases on the Website or the App login to your Account. Limit one (1) phone number per transaction (if applicable). You will receive one (1) “Point” for each U.S. dollar spent, except during limited time promotions when Blendid may offer “Bonus Points” on featured products and/or services. No partial Points will be earned for purchase amounts less than one (1) U.S. dollar.

Surprise and Delight Rewards 
The Program might provide Members with the opportunity to earn special surprise and delight Points and/or Rewards.

Birthday Rewards 
The Program might provide Members with a special quantity of Points or a Reward on or around their birthday of record that was provided to Blendid during the Account set-up (“Birthday Reward”). Once your birthday is set in your Account profile, it cannot be changed. To receive a Birthday Reward, you must have an Account at least two (2) days before your birthday and meet certain minimum Points requirements, as determined by Blendid in its sole discretion.

BOGO Fundraising Rewards 
The Program might provide Members with the opportunity to redeem a certain number of “Buy One, Get One” (“BOGO”) Rewards associated with the Blendid BOGO Fundraising Cards (“BOGO Fundraising Reward”).

Opt-in to Promotional Communications 
The Program might provide Members with the opportunity to earn Points in exchange for signing up to receive promotional and marketing offers from Blendid by providing their email address or phone number.

  1. POINTS AND REWARDS REDEMPTION.

Members may redeem Points for products, discounts, coupons, merchandise, and other rewards as determined by Blendid in its sole discretion (each, a “Reward”). Rewards may expire if not used by a date specified by Blendid, further details are provided on the Website or App on a reward-specific basis. A service fee of $0.35 and sales tax will be charged on each Reward redemption for orders placed via the Website or App. You may view your current earned Points or earned Rewards and their expiration date by logging into your Account. Blendid, in its sole discretion, may impose a limit on the number of Points or Rewards in the aggregate or by type that may earned or redeemed per Account, per day, per Reward or per any other generally applicable metric that may be selected by Blendid from time to time in its sole discretion. Points are not valid on the same transaction that earned the Points and are valid on the next store visit only as determined by Blendid in its sole discretion. 

Rewards are subject to availability as determined by Blendid in its sole discretion. The expiration date for a Reward, if any, will be disclosed when the Reward is presented and may vary for different categories of Rewards. Blendid reserves the right to modify, amend or revise the Rewards available. Members may not rely on continued Reward availability. The number of Points required to redeem any Reward may be substantially increased, any Reward may be withdrawn, and restrictions and other terms and conditions associated with any Reward or its redemption may be imposed by Blendid or its designee or the third party business partner supplying the Reward. Rewards are non-assignable and non-transferable and may not be bartered or sold. Any Rewards assigned, transferred, bartered, or sold in violation of these Blendid Rewards Terms may be confiscated or cancelled. Physical Rewards (if any) will be shipped only to the United States address currently on file with Blendid for the applicable Member’s Account and will not be shipped to any other person or address. A pattern of redeeming Points for Rewards preceded or followed by changing the address, email address or telephone number for the applicable Account may be viewed as redemption fraud and could result in the termination of your membership in the Program. Blendid reserves the right to substitute Rewards of comparable or greater value if any redeemed Reward becomes unavailable for any reason. Unless otherwise specified at the time of redemption, physical Rewards (if any) will be fulfilled within six to eight weeks from date of redemption. Rewards pictured in point-of-sale, online, television and print advertising, promotional packaging, and other Program materials are for illustrative purposes only. The actual Reward may vary from the Reward pictured. 

All details and restrictions of the Rewards not specified at the time the redemption opportunity is presented will be determined by Blendid in its sole discretion. Members shall be solely responsible for all federal, state, and/or local taxes including, without limitation, income taxes and any reporting consequences thereof in connection with a Reward. If required by law, as determined by Blendid in its sole discretion, Blendid reserves the right to withhold and remit to the appropriate taxing authorities the amount of any taxes due.

Points and Rewards have no cash value and may not be redeemed for cash and may not be sold, auctioned, bartered, brokered, purchased, transferred, assigned, or used to engage in any gambling activity. Any Points or Rewards obtained in this manner by any person or entity will be considered to have been fraudulently obtained and deemed void and such Points and Rewards may be confiscated or cancelled. Points and Rewards must be redeemed in accordance with these Blendid Rewards Terms. Points and Rewards will not be replaced, reissued, or credited if lost, stolen, or otherwise altered or destroyed. If the Program includes tiers that provide the Member with benefits based on meeting a stated minimum threshold number of Points (each such tier, if any, referred to as “Points Level”), you should know that Points Levels are subject to change. Blendid, in its sole discretion and without notice to you, reserves the right to change, modify, withdraw, or cancel any Points Level. Blendid also reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to determine and modify, at any time, the value of Points and the number of Points or the type of Reward that may be earned for any given activity. Rewards cannot be used in combination with any other discount, coupon or offer unless specifically allowed by the terms of a specific promotion. Once you have redeemed your Points or Rewards, they are gone and there are no refunds, returns or exchanges for additional Points, Rewards, cash, or other goods and services, even if you return the products, merchandise or other item(s) that your Points or Rewards were redeemed toward.

  1. MODIFICATION AND TERMINATION.

Blendid may modify any of these Blendid Rewards Terms, including, but not limited to, the methods through which Points or Rewards can be earned, how Points or Rewards can be used, the types or “classes” of Points available, and the conditions under which Points or Rewards may expire or be forfeited, at any time, with or without notice, even though these changes may affect a Member’s ability to use the Points or Rewards that the Member has already earned. The Program has no predetermined termination date and may continue until such time as Blendid decides to terminate the Program. Blendid may, in its sole discretion, modify or terminate the Program, in whole or in part, at any time and for any reason or no reason at all, with notice on the Website, in the App and/or via email to the Member’s email address currently on file with Blendid for their Account.

If Blendid amends these Blendid Rewards Terms, it will revise the “last updated” date located at the top of these Blendid Rewards Terms. For changes to these Blendid Rewards Terms that Blendid considers to be material, Blendid may place a notice in the App or Website by revising the link on the home page to read substantially as “Updated Blendid Rewards Terms and Conditions” for an amount of time that we determine in our discretion. If you continue to participate in the Program by earning Points or Rewards, redeeming Points or Rewards, logging onto your Account or in any other way after these Blendid Rewards Terms have been changed, you will be deemed to have read, understood and unconditionally consented to and agreed to such changes. The most current version of these Blendid Rewards Terms will be available on the Website and will supersede all previous versions of these Blendid Rewards Terms.

If Blendid decides in its sole discretion to discontinue the Program, Members will have approximately thirty (30) days or an amount of time deemed reasonable by Blendid in its sole discretion from the date Program termination is announced to use their remaining Points or Rewards. Use of any remaining Points or Rewards will be on a first come, first serve basis and otherwise subject to the availability of Rewards. Members may not rely on continued Points or Reward availability. Blendid makes no representation or warranty about the number or type of Rewards that may be available after Program termination has been announced, and many Rewards that may have been available prior to termination will quickly become depleted or otherwise unavailable once the Program termination has been announce. Any Points or Rewards remaining in a Member’s Account at the time of termination will be forfeited and no compensation will be provided. Blendid may cancel your membership, cancel accumulated Points or Rewards, alter the number of Points or Rewards in your Account or suspend your membership privileges at any time with immediate effect if Blendid determines in its sole discretion that you (a) have acted in a manner inconsistent with applicable laws or ordinances; (b) acted in a fraudulent or abusive manner; (c) breached any of these Blendid Rewards Terms; (d) engaged in any fraud or abuse concerning Points or Rewards, Points/Rewards usage or Points/Rewards redemption; or (e) engaged in any conduct or act that causes Blendid to terminate or suspend your access to your Account. Blendid may also take appropriate administrative or legal action if any of the items listed above occurs. Nothing contained in these Blendid Rewards Terms shall limit Blendid in its exercise of any legal or equitable rights or remedies.

Blendid reserves the right to terminate the membership of any Member whose Account becomes dormant. An Account will be considered dormant if the Account holder fails to log onto his or her Account for twelve (12) months or with such regularity deemed sufficient by Blendid and announced from time to time on the Website. Blendid in its sole discretion may allow Members to prevent their Points from expiring by following Blendid’s instructions.

Blendid’s failure to enforce any of these Blendid Rewards Terms shall not constitute a waiver of the affected provision, or any other provision. All questions or disputes regarding an individual’s eligibility for the Program, the earning, crediting or use of Points or Rewards, or a Member’s compliance with these Blendid Rewards Terms will be resolved by Blendid in its sole discretion. 

  1. PROGRAM MALFUNCTIONS AND CONDUCT.

The Program Entities are not responsible for lost, interrupted, inaccessible or unavailable networks, servers, satellites, Internet Service Providers, websites, or other connections; or for miscommunications, failed, jumbled, scrambled, delayed, or misdirected computer, telephone or cable transmissions; or for any technical malfunctions, failures, or difficulties, or other errors of any kind or nature; or for the incorrect or inaccurate capture of information, or the failure to capture any information.

In no event will Program Entities be liable for, and Members expressly release the Program Entities from any claims as to the issuance of any unintended Points or Rewards.

In addition, we may send Users targeted ads, based on their location and activities on our Sites and in the Apps. We may also participate in third-party ad networks (including but not limited to Google Ads, Flashtalking, Quantcast, Mediamath, Dstillery, RhythmOne, and Facebook Ads) and allow third parties, including network advertisers, to use cookies, pixel tags, and other tracking technologies on the Sites and Apps to collect usage information and display targeted ads. These third parties may be able to associate the information they collect with other information they have about you from other sources. These third-party cookies and other technologies are governed by each third party’s specific privacy policy, not this one.

For more information on third-party analytics and advertising practices, please visit our Cookie Policy .

Our Sites do not honor browser do-not-track requests. However, you can find information on how to opt out of many participating website ad networks at the following websites: Network Advertising Initiative , and Digital Advertising Alliance .

Mobile App Users

If you download or use any of our Apps, and you agree to share your location information with us and receive push notifications from us, we will use your location information to send you customized notices, offers, and coupons.

These features may collect your IP address, which page you are visiting on our Sites, and may set a cookie to enable the feature to function properly. These features are displayed on our Sites, but are hosted by third parties. Your interactions with these features are governed by the privacy policy of the company providing them, not this Policy. You should consult their respective privacy policies for information about their information practices.

You are not required to create an account with us before submitting a verifiable request. You can submit your request by calling us at 1-415-237-0041.

After receiving and verifying your request, we will provide the following information (depending on your request):

  •  The business or commercial purpose(s) for collecting or selling that Personal Information.

  •  The right to request deletion of Personal Information

With certain exceptions, you have the right to request that we and our service providers delete Personal Information we or our service provider collected or maintained. Once we receive and verify your request, we will delete, and instruct any applicable service providers to delete, your Personal Information from our records, unless an exception applies.

We and our service providers may deny a verified deletion request if we must maintain your Personal Information to:

  • Detect security incidents, protect against malicious, deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity, or prosecute those responsible for that activity.

  • Engage in public or peer-reviewed scientific, historical, or statistical research in the public interest if:

    • the research adheres to all other applicable ethics and privacy laws;

    • deleting the Personal Information is likely to make the research impossible or seriously impair it; and

    •  you provided informed consent during the initial data collection.

  • Enable our internal use in a manner that you would reasonably expect based on your relationship with us.

  • Comply with our legal obligations.

  • Otherwise use your Personal Information internally in a lawful manner that is compatible with the context in which you provided the information.

See the “Methods for Submitting CCPA Requests to Blendid” section below for information on how you can exercise your right to delete collected Personal Information.

  • The right to opt-out of the sale of Personal Information

You have the right to opt-out of the “sale” of your Personal Information to other businesses or third parties. The CCPA defines “sell,” “selling, “sale,” and “sold” to include selling, renting, releasing, disclosing, disseminating, making available, transferring, or otherwise communicating orally, in writing, or by electronic or other means.

Once we receive an opt-out request, we will act upon the request as soon as commercially reasonable, but no later than fifteen (15) days from the date we receive the request. We will also notify all third parties to whom we have sold the Personal Information within the ninety (90) days prior to receiving the request that you have exercised your opt-out right and instruct them not to resell the Personal Information.

However, if we have a good-faith, reasonable, and documented belief that the request is fraudulent, we will deny the request and provide you with an explanation of our rationale.

You may elect to opt-in to the sale of Personal Information after opting-out. In the event that a transaction requires the sale of your Personal Information as a condition of completing the transaction, we will inform you of this and provide instructions on how you can opt-in.

See the “Do Not Sell My Personal Information” section below for more on how to opt-out of the sale of Personal Information.

  •  The rights of California consumers who are less than 16 years of age

However, under certain circumstances, we may offer you special discounts or other incentives for the right to continue to collect, use, or sell your Personal Information.

If you would like to opt-out of receiving marketing communications, please submit your request here.

You will be required to provide all or some of the following information for verification purposes:

  • Your first and last name

  • Your e-mail address

  • Your telephone number

If you submit either a request to know specific pieces of Personal Information collected, or a request to delete sensitive, irreplaceable, or otherwise valuable Personal Information, you (or your authorized agent, if applicable) will be required to provide a signed declaration affirming your identity (or your authorized agent’s identity, if applicable). 

  1. Authorized Agents

An authorized agent is either a natural person or a business entity registered with the California Secretary of State that a consumer has authorized to act on his or her behalf.

You may use an authorized agent to submit a request to know, to delete or to opt-out. You may make such a designation by providing the agent with written permission to act on your behalf. We will require the authorized agent to provide either (1) a power of attorney; or (2) proof of your written permission to allow the authorized agent to submit the request on your behalf. In addition to proof of your written permission, we may require you to verify your own identity and directly confirm that you provided the agent permission to submit the request.

  1. Response Timing and Format

We will confirm receipt of a request from you within ten (10) business days. This confirmation will provide information about how we will process the request, including a description of our verification process and an approximation of when we will send you a substantive response.

If you have requested to know specific Personal Information we collected, we will provide that information to you via mail or electronically.

We do not charge a fee to process or respond to a verifiable consumer request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that the request warrants a fee, we will tell you why and provide you with a cost estimate before completing the request.

  • Acting upon opt-out requests

We will act upon an opt-out as soon as commercially reasonable, but no later than fifteen (15) days from the date we receive the request.

You have the right to direct us not to sell your Personal Information and you may exercise this right at any time.

If you are a California consumer and wish to opt-out of the sale of your Personal Information, you may submit an opt-out request by calling us at 1-415-237-0041.

  1. Financial Incentive Offers

You have the right to receive equal service and price and not be discriminated against if you exercise any of your CCPA rights. However, from time to time we may offer certain financial incentives, as permitted by the CCPA, that can result in different prices, rates, or quality levels of our products and/or services. Any CCPA-permitted financial incentive we offer will reasonably relate to your Personal Information’s value and contain written terms that describe the program’s material aspects. Participation in a financial incentive program requires your prior opt-in consent, which you may revoke at any time.

Summary of Financial Incentives Offered.

From time to time, we offer coupons, specials, or other discounts to consumers who have opted-in to the receipt of marketing material from us by providing us with certain Personal Information, such as an email address or a phone number. Occasionally, we also offer consumers the opportunity to enter contests and sweepstakes. Consumers who share certain Personal Information with us by entering have a chance to win the contest or sweepstakes. Each contest or sweepstakes is governed by its own terms, and the specific financial incentive offered will be detailed there.

Consumers may also join our free rewards program. You will be enrolled in our rewards program only after you provide prior opt-in consent. Participation in our rewards program gives consumers the opportunity to accrue points with qualifying purchases. The rewards program collects and retains participants’ Personal Information in order to keep track of the points you have accrued and/or purchases you have made. For details regarding the our rewards program, including program benefits, refer to the Terms & Conditions for the rewards program.

Material Terms of Financial Incentives.

When we offer a financial incentive or participation in our reward program, the offer will include an explanation of the material terms of the incentive or program. The nature and value of any such offer or financial incentive may differ depending on what information we collect and use and whether you choose to enroll in our rewards program.

Whether you consent to the financial incentive and/or to enroll in our rewards program and whether you choose to allow us to collect and use other types of Personal Information about you affects how we communicate with you and the types and frequency of offers that you may receive. Most financial incentives that we offer and the rewards program will involve one or more of the following categories of personal information:

  • Personal identifiers, such as name, postal address, and email address.

  • Categories of personal information described in the California Records Statute, such as telephone numbers.

  • Protected classification characteristics, such as age.

  • Commercial information, such as favorite location and history of purchases.

How to Provide Opt-In Consent to Financial Incentive.

Participation in our financial incentives and the rewards program requires your prior opt-in consent. You can opt-in to participate in the financial incentives and/or our rewards program by checking the opt-in box when you sign up for an account, or by entering a contest or sweepstakes we sponsor.

How to Revoke/Withdraw Consent to Financial Incentive.

You make revoke your consent to any financial incentive (or opt-out) at any time by following the opt-out instructions contained in any promotional or information email we send to you.

Similarly, you may deactivate your account in the rewards program at any time by contacting us at 1-415-237-0041 with your account information and request that we delete your profile. If you delete your profile this means you will lose any points, rewards and offers that may have accrued.

Value of California Consumers’ Personal Information.

Our offers and financial incentives may be individualized to each consumer or a group of consumers based on one or more factors. Nonetheless, each offer or financial incentive related to the collection, retention, and use of your Personal Information is based upon our reasonable determination of the estimated value of such information, which takes into consideration, without limitation, estimates regarding the anticipated revenue generated from such information, the anticipated expenses which might be incurred in the collection, storage, and use of such information in the operation of our business, and other relevant factors related to the estimated value of such information to our business, as permitted under the CCPA. Thus, the value of a consumers’ Personal Information will depend on the offer or financial incentive and whether you enroll in the rewards program.

  1. Metrics Regarding CCPA Requests and Responses During the Previous Calendar Year

At the end of each calendar year, starting in 2020, we will report as applicable regarding the number of requests to know, delete or opt-out that we received, complied with in whole or in part, or denied, and the median length of our response time.

We do this in order to, for example, uniquely identify you or your device, allow you to login, access and use our Sites, monitor performance of our Sites, secure our Sites, improve our Sites and services, customize your experience and save your settings, and to allow us to better reach you and other users with relevant ads and information. 

This cookie policy (“Cookie Policy”) describes the types of the cookies we use on our Sites and our purposes for using them. Any terms that we use, but are not defined, in this Cookie Policy, are defined in our Privacy Policy

For a more complete description and list of the cookies that we currently use on our Sites, please review “Managing third party analytics and ad settings” below. For more information about our privacy practices, please review our Privacy Policy. California residents: please review our California Privacy Policy . If you have questions about this Cookie Policy, please contact us at privacy@blendid.com

As disclosed in our cookie banner, our Sites use cookies. You have consented to our use of cookies in order to use and access our Sites. Please read this Cookie Policy carefully for details about why we use cookies and the information they collect from and about you, as well as the choices you have with respect to certain cookies. 

You may withdraw your consent to our use of cookies by deleting, blocking, or disabling cookies via your browser settings; see below for more information on how to do this. Please note that disabling cookies will affect the functionality of our Sites, and may prevent you from being able to access certain features on a website. 

1. What Is a Cookie? 

Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that we transfer to your computer’s hard drive through your web browser for record-keeping purposes. Some cookies allow us to make it easier for you to navigate our Sites, while others are used to enable a faster log-in process or to allow us to track your activities. 

2. Key Concepts 

First and third-party cookies : whether a cookie is ‘first’ or ‘third’ party refers to the domain placing the cookie. 

First-party cookies are those set by a website that is being visited by the user at the time (e.g., cookies placed by our website domain). 

Third-party cookies are cookies that are set by a domain other than that of the website being visited by the user. If a user visits a website and another entity sets a cookie through that website, that would be a third-party cookie. 

Persistent cookies : these cookies remain on a user’s device for the period of time specified in the cookie. They are activated each time that the user visits the website that created that particular cookie. 

Session cookies : these cookies allow website operators to link the actions of a user during a browser session. A browser session starts when a user opens the browser window and finishes when they close the browser window. Session cookies are created temporarily. Once you close the browser, all session cookies are deleted. 

3. How to Delete and Block our Cookies 

Most web browsers allow some control of most cookies through the browser settings. However, if you use your browser settings to block all cookies (including essential cookies), you may not be able to access all or parts of a website. Unless you have adjusted your browser setting so that it will refuse cookies, our system will issue cookies as soon as you visit one of our Sites.

4. What Cookies Do We Use and Why? 

Generally, our Sites use cookies to distinguish you from other users of the websites. This helps us to provide you with a good experience when you browse one of our Sites and also allows us to improve it. 

The cookies we may use on our Sites may be categorized as follows: 

● Strictly necessary; 

● Performance; 

● Functionality; and 

● Targeting. 

Some cookies may fulfill more than one of these purposes. 

‘Strictly Necessary’ cookies let you move around a website and use essential features like secure areas. Without these cookies, we cannot provide the requested services. 

We use these Strictly Necessary cookies to: 

● Identify you as being logged in to one of our Sites and to authenticate you; 

● Make sure you connect to the right service on our Sites when we make any changes to the way they work; and 

● For security purposes. 

Accepting these cookies is a condition of using our Sites, so if you prevent these cookies we cannot guarantee how the website or the security on the website will perform during your visit. 

‘Performance’ cookies collect information about how you use our Sites, e.g., which pages you go to most. This data may be used to help optimize our Sites and make them easier for you to navigate. We do not use these cookies to collect information that directly identifies you. 

We use performance cookies to: 

● Carry out web analytics and provide statistics on how our Sites are used; 

● Perform affiliate tracking, which means we provide feedback to affiliated entities that one of our visitors also visited their website; 

● Obtain data on the number of users of a website that have viewed a product or service; 

● Help us improve our Sites by measuring any errors that occur; and 

● Test different designs for a website. 

Some of our performance cookies are managed for us by third parties. 

‘Functionality’ cookies allow our Sites to remember choices you make while browsing. For instance, we may store your geographic location in a cookie to ensure that we show you our Site localized for your area. These cookies do not collect information that identifies you, and cannot track your browsing activity on websites other than our Sites. 

We use ‘Functionality’ cookies for such purposes as: 

● Remember settings you’ve applied such as layout, text size, preferences and colors; 

● Remember if we’ve already asked you if you want to fill in a survey; 

● Remember if you have engaged with a particular component or list on the website so that it won’t repeat; 

● Show you when you’re logged in to our Sites; and 

● Provide and show embedded video content. 

Some of our functionality cookies are managed for us by third parties. 

‘Targeting’ cookies are used to track your visit to our Sites, as well other websites, apps, and online services, including the pages you have visited and the links you have followed, which allows us to display targeted ads to you on our Sites. 

We may use targeting cookies to: 

● Display targeted ads within a website. 

● Improve how we deliver personalized ads and content, and to measure the success of ad campaigns on our websites. 

5. Do- Not -Track 

Our Sites do not honor browser do-not-track requests. However, you can find information on how to opt out of many website participating ad networks at the following websites: Network Advertising Initiative , and Digital Advertising Alliance .

7. More Information on Third Party Ad Networks 

We may send users targeted ads, based on their location and activities on our Sites. We may also participate in third-party ad networks (including but not limited to Google Ads, Flashtalking, Quantcast, Mediamath, Dstillery, RhythmOne, OwnerIQ, Padsquad, Adtheorent, Q1 Media and Facebook Ads) and allow third parties to use cookies, pixel tags and other tracking technologies on the Sites to collect usage information and display targeted ads; these third parties may be able to associate the information they collect with other information they have about you from other sources. 

We use third parties such as network advertisers to display advertisements on our Sites, to assist us in displaying advertisements on third-party websites, and to evaluate the success of our advertising campaigns. Network advertisers are third parties that display advertisements based on your visits to our Sites as well as other websites and apps. This enables us and these third parties to target advertisements by displaying ads for products and services in which you might be interested. Third-party ad network providers, advertisers, sponsors, and/or traffic measurement services may use cookies, JavaScript, web beacons (including clear GIFs), Flash LSOs, and other technologies to measure the effectiveness of their ads and to personalize advertising content to you. These third-party cookies and other technologies are governed by each third party’s specific privacy policy, not this one. We may provide these third-party advertisers with information about your usage of our Sites.
