While registering, you must accept the Fresh Step® Paw Points® Terms, after which registration is complete. It is your sole responsibility to ensure that information contained in your Loyalty Program Rewards Account profile is up-to-date at all times. At the time of registration and log-in, you may be asked to complete a survey. The survey is optional and will only be presented to you periodically when you visit the Loyalty Program site. If the survey is not completed after five (5) tries, it will no longer be presented. Only the individual named as the primary account holder will accrue points and will be entitled to access Rewards Account information. Members earn rewards points ("Rewards Points") for qualifying purchases of Fresh Step® cat litter products as well as behavioral activities including tell-a-friend, viewing content, photo upload or answering survey questions. The number of "behavior-related" Rewards Points available to members will be capped on a daily and action basis to maintain an 80/20 ratio of points earned via purchase versus behavior. A summary of a member’s Rewards Account may be viewed at www.freshstep.com/pawpoints. Company will attempt to credit members' accounts with Rewards Points on a timely basis. However, each member shall have the responsibility of ensuring that his or her Rewards Points are properly credited. Any claim for Rewards Points not credited accurately must be received by Company within six (6) months of the date of claimed accrual of such Rewards Points or 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time ("ET") on June 30, 2016, whichever is earlier, or otherwise such Rewards Points shall no longer be valid or usable. Members who do not show activity (logging in) to their Rewards Account for one (1) year will have their Rewards Account deactivated and their Rewards Points will expire and be forfeited without compensation.
Company shall have no liability for any printing, production, typographical, mechanical or other errors in the Rewards Points summaries distributed by Company or its agents, for any delay or failure to credit Rewards Points to member accounts or for any failure to provide Rewards Account summaries as outlined herein. Company reserves the right to invalidate Rewards Points from a member's Rewards Account with notice if it determines in its sole discretion that such points were improperly credited to such member's Rewards Account or were obtained fraudulently or otherwise in violation of these Terms. Company reserves the right to require proof of accrual of Rewards Points and Company reserves the right to delay the processing or redemption of any Rewards Points without notice, in order to assure compliance with the Terms outlined herein. Members, by participating in the Loyalty Program, are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of individual member's Rewards Accounts and password and for restricting access to member's computer, and member agrees to accept responsibility for all activities that occur under member's Rewards Account or password. Without limiting any other remedies, Company may suspend or terminate any Rewards Account if Company suspects in its sole discretion that any member or other person has engaged in fraudulent activity in connection with this Loyalty Program. Rewards Points do not constitute property, do not entitle a member to a vested right or interest and have no cash value. As such, Rewards Points are not redeemable for cash, transferable or assignable for any reason. The sale, barter, transfer or assignment of any accumulated Rewards Points, other than by Company, is strictly prohibited. Any Rewards Points which Company deems in its sole discretion to have been transferred, sold, bartered or assigned in violation of the Loyalty Program's Terms may be confiscated and/or canceled. Participation in the Loyalty Program is subject to the Terms, as well as policies and procedures that Company may adopt or modify from time to time.

Each qualifying product will have a unique Paw Points® code inside or affixed to the outside of the package. To receive your Rewards Points, members must use a computer with internet access to enter the unique Paw Points® code online at shttps://www.freshstep.com/paw-points. Each Paw Points® code can only be used once for deposit to one (1) Rewards Account. Only official Paw Points® codes, authorized by Company and collected from packaging purchased at retail, are valid and will be accepted into the Loyalty Program. Rewards Points are subject to verification and no mechanical reproductions will be accepted. We suggest you retain your original unique Paw Points® code numbers for your records. Rewards Points will be issued to the primary account holder of the Loyalty Program Account. The Loyalty Program and all Rewards Points expire at the end of the Redemption Period, unless the Loyalty Program is extended by Company pursuant to the Terms. All requests for Rewards Points deposits must be communicated to Company by the end of the Collection Period. Fraudulent requests or submissions for Rewards Points deposits will be investigated and voided. In the event of fraud, abuse of privileges, or violation of the Loyalty Program Terms, Company reserves the right to deny participation at any time and to pursue appropriate administrative and/or legal action, including criminal prosecution, as it deems necessary in its sole discretion.
5. Changes to Rewards Points Structure. The Rewards Points structure is subject to modification or limitation at any time, with or without notice, in Company's sole discretion, including, without limitation, the right to establish additional means of accruing Rewards Points, the right to modify and delete any or all of the recognized means of accruing Rewards Points existing at any given time, the right to change the rewards available and their values and types and the rewards redemption terms, and the right to exclude specific types of transactions from Rewards Points eligibility.
6. Redeeming Points for Rewards. Subject to Company’s rights to add, delete, or otherwise make changes to the Rewards Points structure and the rewards as more fully expressed in the preceding Section 5, Rewards Points may be redeemed for merchandise, gift cards, and other items of value (collectively, the “Rewards”) found in the Catalog of Rewards which is posted and, from time to time, updated in the Loyalty Program website at https://www.freshstep.com/paw-points. See https://www.freshstep.com/paw-points for details on how to redeem Rewards Points. Rewards Points redeemed for Rewards will be subtracted from a member's account at the time the member requests a Reward. Each redeeming member is solely responsible for ensuring that their shipping address is correct in their Loyalty Program Rewards Account profile prior to Reward redemption. Each redeeming member is responsible for paying all shipping and handling charges for any Reward selected which is an electronic code of value for purchasing items on another website, as disclosed at the time of redemption. Otherwise, shipping and handling charges are included in the Reward Point value required for Reward redemption. Company’s obligation regarding delivery of a Reward is satisfied upon shipment of the selected Reward to the address identified in the member’s Loyalty Program Rewards Account profile as of the date of Reward redemption. Company is not responsible for lost or stolen Reward(s) shipments and will be responsible for non-receipt of Rewards only for instances of shipment to an address different than the one in the member’s Loyalty Program account profile as of the date of Reward redemption. Members must allow eight to ten weeks for shipment of a selected Reward. Unused Rewards Points, and any portions thereof, may not be exchanged or redeemed for cash, or other goods and services. Once Rewards Points have been redeemed for a Reward, they are no longer valid for any subsequent redemption and they may not be returned or refunded to a member's Loyalty Program Rewards Account for any reason. Refunds, exchanges and other issues are governed by the merchandise vendor's terms and conditions applicable to the particular Reward redeemed and are not the responsibility of Company. The availability of any Reward or Catalog of Rewards items offered in the Loyalty Program are subject to availability and may change at any time, without notice, in the sole discretion of Company. Rewards may be available only in limited quantities and will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis. Members should regularly consult the Loyalty Program website for updates about Reward availability.
7. Expiration of Rewards Points. Except for deactivation of inactive accounts and expiration and forfeiture of Reward Points as described in Section 3 above, Rewards Points shall be maintained in the member's account until they are redeemed for a Reward or until they expire not later than 11:59 p.m. ET on June 30, 2016 ("Redemption Deadline"). No extensions, cash refunds or other exchanges will be allowed for expired Rewards Points. Any Reward Points remaining in a User's Account following the Redemption Deadline will be forfeited without compensation. The Rewards Points have no cash value and are only redeemable for Rewards offered via the Loyalty Program.
8. Cat Rescue/Shelter Program. Cat rescues or shelters in the fifty (50) United States, District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico may seek membership in the Loyalty Program and, if approved, may participate in the Loyalty Program in accordance with these Terms. Rescues/shelters seeking to be approved for membership must register at https://www.freshstep.com/paw-points, follow the registration process described in Section 3, and provide profile information specifically requested for rescue/shelter registrants, including the name and title of a rescue shelter contact, year founded, website and social media addresses, a tax identification number, and evidence of Section 501(c)(3) status. Only authorized representatives of a rescue/shelter may enroll an organization. Such authorized representatives are solely responsible for complying with any organization policies associated with participation in programs of this nature. Please note that when you register for the Loyalty Program, you are consenting to allow the rescue/shelter name, logo, and any images you upload to be visible to other users of the website.

If you do not want this information to be visible, you can change your privacy settings under the My Account section. Rescue/shelter registrations will be reviewed and approved by Company in its reasonable discretion. Only approved shelter registrants may become members. Rescue/shelter members may then earn Rewards Points and redeem them in accordance with these Terms. Rescue/shelter members may also earn points based on behavioral activities that are specific to shelter members, including a profile photo upload, a first gallery photo upload, and setting a donation goal. Members may donate Rewards Points to approved shelter members through the Catalog of Rewards. The minimum donation to shelter members is 200 points and the maximum donation is the maximum number of available Rewards Points in a member's Rewards Account. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in these Terms, members may donate Rewards Points to shelter members in accordance with the rescue/shelter program described in this Section. Approved rescue/shelter members may be given access to certain of Company’s proprietary materials comprised of Company’s trademarks and copyrights (the “Outreach Materials”) via the Community Outreach Website. Only approved rescue/shelter members may access the Community Outreach Website and use the Outreach Materials. Company hereby grants such members a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable,non-sublicensable license to use the Outreach Materials solely in connection with the Loyalty Program, provided that Company may terminate this license for any use that Company deems unacceptable, effective immediately upon written notice to the member. The member shall not use the Outreach Materials in a manner that is embarrassing, detrimental or disparaging to Company, and nothing in this limited license shall give member any right, title or interest in Company’s copyrights or trademarks. Each member further agrees to use the Outreach Materials only as directed and in a manner that complies with all applicable federal, state and/or provincial, regional, municipal, and local laws, codes, regulations, rules, ordinances, decrees, permits, registrations and orders, including without limitation, the CAN-Spam Act, the Telephone Consumer Protection Act and the Federal Trade Commission’s Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising and the Federal Trade Commission’s .com Disclosures: How to Make Effective Disclosures in Digital Advertising.

Company will give reasonable advance notice of any modification of the Terms hereof which may adversely impact your Rewards Account. Members understand that the most recent version of the Terms will be located at the Loyalty Program website. A member's continued use of the Loyalty Program following the posting on the Loyalty Program website of conspicuous notice of any modification will indicate member's acceptance of any modification to the Terms hereof. Any member may object to the modification to the Loyalty Program and/or its Terms by no longer participating. (b) Termination: The Loyalty Program will terminate at 11:59 p.m. ET on June 30, 2016, or earlier at the sole discretion of Company (the “Program Termination Date”). In the event of early termination, Company shall give conspicuous notice at least thirty (30) days prior to the date that such termination becomes effective, during which time you may still accrue and redeem Rewards Points, provided however, that you agree that Company shall not be required to give thirty (30)days' notice if such termination is due to the filing of a petition in bankruptcy, an adjudication of bankruptcy, insolvency, an assignment for the benefit of creditors, or any other discontinuance of business. All Rewards Points must be redeemed prior to the Redemption Deadline. You should not rely upon the continued availability of the Loyalty Program or any Rewards Points accumulated in connection therewith after the Program Termination Date. (c) Extension: Company may, at its sole discretion, extend the Loyalty Program beyond the Program Termination Date set forth above. In the event Company does extend the Loyalty Program beyond the Program Termination Date, Company shall give conspicuous notice prior to the date that such extension becomes effective. Members who participate in the Loyalty Program after the extension agree to be bound by the Terms then in effect.

If any such contingency shall last for more than sixty (60) days, Company shall have the right to terminate the Loyalty Program immediately by giving notice and shall have no further liability to any member.
14. Governing Law and Consent to Jurisdiction. The laws of the State of Michigan, without regard to its conflict of laws principles, will govern these Terms, as well as your and Company’s observance of them. If you take any legal action relating to your use of this Loyalty Program or these Terms, you agree to file such action only in the state or federal courts located in Oakland County, Michigan.
15. No Waiver. Company's failure to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision unless acknowledged and agreed to by Company in writing.
16. Captions. The headings in these Terms are for your convenience and reference. These headings do not limit or affect these Terms.
17. Complete Agreement. These Terms, together with those items made a part of these Terms by reference, make up the entire agreement between Company and the Loyalty Program members relating to the Loyalty Program, and replaces any prior understandings or agreements (whether oral or written) regarding the Loyalty Program. If a court of competent jurisdiction holds or declares any part of these Terms to be unenforceable or invalid for any reason, such provision(s) will be enforced to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law and all other provisions of these Terms will remain in full force and effect.

Winners are responsible for all taxes and fees associated with prize receipt and/or use. Odds of winning a prize depend on the number of eligible entries received for each prize. Limit: One (1) prize per Monthly Entry Period, per person.
7. Release: By receipt of any prize, winner agrees to release and hold harmless Sponsor, Administrator, and their respective subsidiaries, affiliates, suppliers, distributors, advertising/promotion agencies, and prize suppliers, and each of their respective parent companies and each such company’s officers, directors, employees and agents (collectively, the “Released Parties”) from and against any claim or cause of action, including, but not limited to, personal injury, death, or damage to or loss of property, arising out of participation in the Sweepstakes or receipt or use or misuse of any prize.
8. Publicity: Except where prohibited, participation in the Sweepstakes constitutes winner’s consent to Sponsor’s and its agents’ use of winner’s name, likeness, photograph, voice, opinions and/or hometown and state for promotional purposes in any media, worldwide, without further payment or consideration.
9. General Conditions: Sponsor reserves the right to cancel, suspend and/or modify the Sweepstakes, or any part of it, if any fraud, technical failures or any other factor beyond Sponsor’s reasonable control impairs the integrity or proper functioning of the Sweepstakes, as determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion. Sponsor reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to disqualify any individual it finds to be tampering with the entry process or the operation of the Sweepstakes or to be acting in violation of these Official Rules or any other promotion or in an unsportsmanlike or disruptive manner. Any attempt by any person to deliberately undermine the legitimate operation of the Sweepstakes may be a violation of criminal and civil law, and, should such an attempt be made, Sponsor reserves the right to seek damages from any such person to the fullest extent permitted by law. Sponsor’s failure to enforce any term of these Official Rules shall not constitute a waiver of that provision.
10. Limitations of Liability: The Released Parties are not responsible for: (1) any incorrect or inaccurate information, whether caused by entrants, printing errors or by any of the equipment or programming associated with or utilized in the Sweepstakes; (2) technical failures of any kind, including, but not limited to malfunctions, interruptions, or disconnections in phone lines or network hardware or software; (3) unauthorized human intervention in any part of the entry process or the Sweepstakes; (4) technical or human error which may occur in the administration of the Sweepstakes or the processing of entries; (5) late, lost, undeliverable, damaged or stolen mail; or (6) any injury or damage to persons or property which may be caused, directly or indirectly, in whole or in part, from entrant’s participation in the Sweepstakes or receipt or use or misuse of any prize. If for any reason an entrant's entry is confirmed to have been erroneously deleted, lost, or otherwise destroyed or corrupted, entrant’s sole remedy is another entry in the Sweepstakes, provided that, if it is not possible to award another entry due to discontinuance of the Sweepstakes, or any part of it, for any reason, Sponsor, in its sole discretion, may elect to hold a random drawing from among all eligible entries received up to the date of discontinuance for any or all of the prizes offered herein. No more than the stated number of prizes will be awarded. In the event that production, technical, seeding, programming or any other reasons cause more than the stated number of prizes as set forth in these Official Rules to be available and/or claimed, Sponsor reserves the right to award only the stated number of prizes by a random drawing among all legitimate, un-awarded, eligible prize claims.
11. Disputes: Except where prohibited, entrant agrees that: (1) any and all disputes, claims and causes of action arising out of or connected with this Sweepstakes or any prize awarded shall be resolved individually, without resort to any form of class action, and exclusively by the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan (Southern Division) or the appropriate Michigan State Court located in Oakland County, Michigan; (2) any and all claims, judgments and awards shall be limited to actual out-of-pocket costs incurred, including costs associated with entering this Sweepstakes, but in no event attorneys’ fees; and (3) under no circumstances will entrant be permitted to obtain awards for, and entrant hereby waives all rights to claim, indirect, punitive, incidental and consequential damages and any other damages, other than for actual out-of-pocket expenses, and any and all rights to have damages multiplied or otherwise increased. All issues and questions concerning the construction, validity, interpretation and enforceability of these Official Rules, or the rights and obligations of the entrant and Sponsor in connection with the Sweepstakes, shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of the State of Michigan without giving effect to any choice of law or conflict of law rules (whether of the State of Michigan or any other jurisdiction), which would cause the application of the laws of any jurisdiction other than the State of Michigan.
