CEO America, Inc. (“CEO”) operates the CREDITZ® System in the United States of America. The CREDITZ System (“System”) allows you to acquire CREDITZ Digital Currency by dealing with participating Merchants and to spend your CREDITZ Digital Currency for either full or partial payment of any of the goods and services offered for sale by participating Merchants, subject to the following Terms and Conditions.
BY REGISTERING AS AN ACCOUNT HOLDER IN THE SYSTEM, YOU AGREE THAT YOU HAVE READ AND UNDERSTAND THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS AND ARE BOUND BY THEM. THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS MAY BE CHANGED FROM TIME TO TIME. IN ADDITION, YOU CONSENT TO OUR COLLECTION AND USE OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION AS DESCRIBED IN DETAIL IN THIS AGREEMENT.
To be eligible in the System, you must be thirteen (13) years of age or older and have a verifiable United States of America mailing address. Those Account Holders under thirteen years of age must provide the date of birth and have the written consent of their parent or guardian (please refer to the CREDITZ® Kidz Application Form).
The registration of a CREDITZ Account (“Account”) and the receipt of all benefits and awards associated with the System are offered at CEO’s discretion. If CEO accepts your application for registration in the System, it will establish an Account in your name and issue you a CREDITZ Account Card (“Account Card”). You may only enroll for one Account. There is no charge for Account registration. You shall immediately advise CEO if your address changes.
CEO may permit you to link your Account with the Accounts of other Account Holders whose primary residence is the same as yours. A linked Account allows the designated Account Holders to accumulate and spend CREDITZ Digital Currency from one Account. CEO will charge an administrative fee of ten dollars ($10.00) each time you request CEO to either link your household Accounts together or to separate your household Accounts once they have been linked. The administrative fee will not apply if the Account Holders requesting their Accounts to be linked have more than 10,000 CREDITZ combined in their Accounts.
You can acquire CREDITZ® Digital Currency by purchasing products and/or services from Merchants in good standing with CEO, and by responding to questionnaires, participating in special promotions and/or other programs, as determined by CEO.
In order to receive CREDITZ Digital Currency when making a purchase, you must present either your Account Card at the physical point of sale or quote your Account Number when enacting a purchase over another medium (i.e. Telephone, Internet, wireless, etc.) before the sale is completed. CEO will award CREDITZ Digital Currency to your Account only once instructed to do so by a Merchant in good standing with CEO.
Merchants will typically pay you one (1) unit of CREDITZ Digital Currency for every one or two dollars that you spend with them, after discounts and before taxes. Merchants may also offer XtraCREDITZ, from time to time, in addition to their standard offer. Merchants will determine the conditions under which they will permit you to obtain CREDITZ Digital Currency and may change those conditions at any time and without notice. Some of the Merchant locations may not participate in the System.
The Maximum daily acquiring of CREDITZ is limited to Ninety Nine Thousand Nine Hundred (99,900) CREDITZ.
In most cases, your Account will reflect the accumulation of CREDITZ Digital Currency within 24 hours of purchasing or participating in contests, questionnaires or any other activity that promises that you will acquire CREDITZ Digital Currency. CEO is not responsible if a Merchant delays or fails to make such a request or for any other delay in recording CREDITZ Digital Currency in your Account. CEO may refuse to record or honour CREDITZ Digital Currency in your Account, or if already recorded, CEO may cancel them, if CEO cannot confirm that the CREDITZ Digital Currency were properly issued or obtained.
CEO may cancel recorded CREDITZ Digital Currency awarded to you if the issuing Merchant does not pay amounts owing to CEO or instructs CEO to cancel the CREDITZ Digital Currency (for example, you returned or didn’t pay for products or services for which the CREDITZ Digital Currency were originally issued). You agree that any CREDITZ Digital Currency awarded to you for making purchases with Merchants, answering questionnaires, or participating in other offers or programs, are deemed fair and equal exchange for any information that may be collected about you by the System during these interactions. Neither CEO nor any Merchant is responsible for any offer of CREDITZ Digital Currency that is no longer in effect. Any dispute regarding the accumulation or redemption of CREDITZ must be settled between you and the Merchant. CREDITZ Digital Currency totals will be deemed correct unless otherwise substantiated by you by bringing forward evidence satisfactory to CEO. Discrepancies must be addressed to the CREDITZ Account Holder Services, 5940 S. Rainbow Blvd., Las Vegas, NV 89118, within 30 days of the date of the statement on which the discrepancy appeared.
No CREDITZ Digital Currency will be issued for the following: tobacco, lottery tickets, specific concessions and/or other items specified as exclusions by CEO.
CREDITZ Digital Currency may be inherited through a valid legal will. CREDITZ Digital Currency will be given to the executor or administrator of the will only for distribution to the beneficiary. A death certificate and proof of executor or administrator satisfactory to CEO are required. CEO will not be liable or responsible in any manner for any taxes that may be incurred as a result of inheritance of CREDITZ Digital Currency.
Each unit of CREDITZ® Digital Currency has a digital currency value of 0.01 of a US Dollar when you spend them with a Merchant in United States of America. Merchants in good standing with CEO will accept CREDITZ Digital Currency for full or partial payment of any of the products and services they offer. When you spend CREDITZ Digital Currency to make a purchase, you are entitled to receive from the Merchant all the same benefits you normally receive when you pay with any other form of payment, such as: cash, credit card or debit card.
You may spend your CREDITZ Digital Currency either in-store or through other distribution channels made available by the Merchant, such as over the telephone, online, through wireless devices, etc. Neither CEO nor participating Merchants have any responsibility for failure to accept CREDITZ Digital Currency at the particular point-of-sale that you choose to make your purchase. Merchants will verify that sufficient CREDITZ Digital Currency are in your Account and if the transaction is approved, your Account will be immediately updated to reflect the CREDITZ Digital Currency spent. For your security, only you are authorized to spend the CREDITZ Digital Currency in your Account.
NOTE: The first time you spend CREDITZ, you must spend 500 or more CREDITZ in your CREDITZ Account. After this first initial spend, any amount of CREDITZ Account may be used for spending.
The Maximum daily spending of CREDITZ is limited to Ninety Nine Thousand Nine Hundred (99,900) CREDITZ.
The Maximum daily transferring of CREDITZ® is limited to Ninety Nine Thousand Nine Hundred (99,900) CREDITZ.
