§5.Cash Back Shopping
(1) Ominto has partnered with various third party online stores ("Stores"; each a "Store") and provides this Cash Back Shopping Site which allows you to earn back a portion of your online shopping spending at these Stores if conducted through the Site. Ominto is not the supplier of the goods and services listed in the different Stores on the Shopping Site. Ominto provides a link to the Store but you will conclude a purchase contract directly with the Store (see discussion of third-party links below). The identity of the Store as well as its terms and conditions are available on the website of the selected Store. A product purchased using the Site is covered by the applicable Store's return, exchange and shipping policies.
(2) Ominto does not guarantee the accuracy of details listed by third-party suppliers on the Shopping Site, in particular for product descriptions, availability and prices, as these are listed completely by the third-party suppliers. Should you identify an error, please notify our Customer Service Team. After investigating the complaint, Ominto will ask the respective Store to correct the error and – as the case may be – we will consider suspending the Store. In the event you find a Cash Back percentage that is unreasonably high or difficult to justify (for example 50%, 100% or 150%) Ominto shall not be obligated to honor that Cash Back percentage. The unreasonably high Cash Back amount will be replaced with the correct Cash Back amount and applied to your Ominto account. If you notice an unreasonably high Cash Back on our site, please contact customer service immediately.
(3) All registered users of the Ominto Shopping Site earn Cash Back on their Qualified Purchases (defined hereafter) at participating Stores. If you shop through the Ominto Shopping Site, whether you are a free or paid member (see Section 6) we will credit a certain percentage of the purchase amount ("Cash Back") to your Ominto account. Please note that Cash Back amounts are calculated based on the net purchase amount. The net purchase amount excludes (amongst others) taxes, fees, shipping, gift-wrapping, discounts or credits, returns or cancellations and extended warranties. Ominto does not guarantee the Cash Back feature; Cash Back is only earned on Qualified Purchases. A "Qualified Purchase" is a purchase that a user has made at a Store after: (a) connecting to the Store via a designated link from the Site; or (b) opening the Mobile App and connecting to the Store via a designated from the App; or (c) clicking on Ominto’s browser extension indicator that appears when visiting a participating Store; or (d) clicking on a link in an e-mail from Ominto or its partners that goes directly to a Store; or (e) any time the Ominto browser extension redirects a user back to a Store and that is in all cases (a) to (e) above subsequently properly reported to Ominto by the Store and in all cases completing the purchase in that window without clicking out or opening any additional window(s). If a user is not properly logged in to the Shopping Site, Cash Back may be forfeited.
(4) With regard to Cash Back, please note the following restrictions:
- Cash Back on travel services will possibly not be granted until the travel is completed.
- Cash Back on subscription-based products or purchases that are bundled to subscription-based products may only be granted in the first month of the subscription and only on the core component of the bundle. Setup fees, costs for included equipment and other additional costs may not be subject to a Cash Back. The purchase of stamps is not subject to Cash Back.
- Cash Back will not be calculated on proportionately included postage and/ or shipping costs and other fees respectively (e.g. handling fees).
- The assessment base for the Cash Back is net, without VAT, sales tax, GST etc.
- Cash Back may not be granted for the purchase and/or redemption of gift cards.
- Ominto reserves the right to deny Cash Back if it was received in an improper or fraudulent way or in circumvention of our Terms. Please note that you must be logged in for the technical implementation of the Cash Back to work properly. Despite the use of developed technology, it is not always possible to guarantee a loss-free allocation of all purchases to your account. Should you miss any purchases, please report them by using the tab "Missing Purchase" for further investigation from the Store.
- Certain Stores exclude a limited number of products and purchases from Cash Back or have other conditions or restrictions – e.g. bulk orders.
- Additional restrictions not mentioned here may apply.
- Ominto can only pay Cash Back after we have received confirmation from the relevant Affiliate Network/ Partners regarding the Qualified Purchase.
(5) The user must check if all purchases are listed in his/her account and report all inquiries two weeks following the date of purchase at the soonest. The user is obligated to produce documentation or information in order to verify (i) the purchase, (ii) eligibility and/or (iii) compliance including but not limited the actual date of purchase, proof of purchase via Store-generated receipts, invoice, ID copy etc. and present them upon request. All claims must be made within ninety (90) days from the date of purchase.
(6) Ominto pays your available Cash Back 3 times per year (in March, July, and November) upon your request, which request must be submitted by you to Ominto during the month prior to the relevant payout month . Only one withdrawal per payout month is permitted. Depending on your location, Ominto may offer various payment methods and currencies. You do not have the right to use a particular payment method or currency and available methods may change without notice. The minimum amount of Cash Back eligible to be withdrawn is as follows, depending on the applicable account currency:
USD – 25
AUD – 30
EUR – 25
GBP – 20
BRL – 80
INR – 1000
You will be charged the transaction fee. The amount of time it takes to process a payment as well as the transaction fee varies by payment option.
(2) The VIP Rewards membership is for personal use only. Commercial use is prohibited and Ominto may restrict access or cancel your VIP Rewards membership at any time at its own discretion in case of any misuse.

(7)The RAF Program is not open for referrals made to existing users and members who are already registered as free or VIP Rewards members. (However, you will still be eligible for the RAF Joining Reward if your friend is an existing free member but upgrades to the VIP Rewards membership in accordance with section 7(3)(a) using the RAF Link you sent them).
(9)For the purposes of this RAF Program, Ominto has the sole discretion to determine whether a referral qualifies as a successful referral ("Qualified Referral").
(10)Once your referral is considered a Qualified Referral, you will be credited any applicable VIP RAF Joining Rewards and/or RAF Cashback Rewards into your membership account provided that your friend's transaction has successfully gone through and hasn't been refunded. To check your credit balance, visit your dashboard and check the amount displayed.

(14)This RAF Program may be changed, altered or discontinued by us without prior notice at any time at our own discretion with or without any substitute or replacement.
§8.Order Acceptance, Payments
(1) If you purchase a VIP Rewards membership an agreement occurs only through your offer and an order acceptance by Ominto. You submit your offer online and Ominto declares its acceptance in an order acceptance via email to you or by delivering the service or product. An order confirmation is not an order acceptance declaration; it solely confirms that your order has been received.
(2) Depending on your location, Ominto may offer various payment methods. You do not have the right to use a particular payment method and available methods may change without notice. Depending on several business factors, we may decide to process your transactions/payments with one of our banking partners located outside of your country which may result in international transaction fees or other fees which the user shall be subject to and responsible to pay.
(3) We reserve the right not to provide VIP Rewards access until we have received the purchase price (including associated costs, i.e. taxes). Furthermore, your account shall be in good standing, meaning you have no outstanding balance with us. All incoming funds will first be credited towards the outstanding balance from prior purchases and, only thereafter, towards the purchase of new products/ services.
§9.Cancellation, Termination, Inactive Accounts
(1) If you are a consumer, you may cancel your paid membership, without reasons, within seven (7) days ("Cooling-off Period") after purchase in writing. The time limit commences when receiving the product or with purchase of the license or service, respectively. Cancellation requests must be sent to:
Attention: Customer Service Team
11555 Heron Bay Blvd, Suite 275
Coral Springs, FL, 33076, USA
or may be submitted online by using our contact form at https://support.savemate.com
(2) In the case of an effective cancellation under clause 9(1), we will reimburse payments for products, services and licenses, provided that they have not yet been used. Your right of withdrawal against the purchase of services or licenses is voided once they have been used proportionately or completely.
(3) You may terminate your free membership at any time. If you have not completed a Qualified Purchase for more than twelve (12) consecutive months, your account becomes inactive ("Inactive Account"). Ominto reserves the right to debit your Cash Back balance of your Inactive Account two dollars ($2) per month to recover the cost of account maintenance until (i) you reactivate your account by completing a Qualified Purchase, or (ii) your account balance is zero. If the balance in your Inactive Account is or becomes zero, Ominto may close the account permanently and cease to maintain your account records and Site access. The inactive account maintenance charge will not cause your account balance to become negative and will not cause you to owe money to Ominto.
(4) In addition to taking the actions in clause 9(2), in the event of account inactivity (ie no Qualified Purchases occurred) for a period of 2 years (24 months) or more, Ominto may terminate the account and void all previous Cash Back earnings. Accounts here-in terminated will not be reinstated and the voided transactions are permanently forfeited.
