Terms & Conditions

Acceptance of Terms and Conditions

1. Introduction

This Agreement is a legal document, which sets out your rights and obligations, and those of CashCo ("we", "us" or "CashCo"), in relation to this site and the services offered by us through the CashCo website (www.cashco.co.nz). You acknowledge that by accessing and using this Website you agree to be bound by the following terms and conditions ('Terms') and our Privacy Policy. Your continued use of the Website constitutes proof of your agreement to these Terms as amended from time to time. Please read these Terms carefully. If you do not accept these Terms, please refrain from using the Website. Cashco.co.nz is fully owned and operated by CashCo Limited, NZBN 942 904 207 6810

2. The CashCo Program

The CashCo program allows Members to earn cashback for purchases made and tracked at participating sellers and suppliers of goods or services (“Retailers” or “Retail partners”). To qualify for cashback, the Retail partner must confirm that the Members purchase is tracked, genuine and successful (a “Qualifying Transaction”) and referral payments (commissions) must be received by us before being confirmed as Cashback.

When a Member makes a purchase from a partner store featured on the CashCo site after clicking the link, the Retailer pays us a referral fee for sending a customer to their site. Once the Retailer has confirmed the qualifying transaction and paid CashCo, we pass the agreed cashback amount back to Members in the form of a cash credit which can, upon request (and subject to minimum payment thresholds), be deposited directly to a Members New Zealand bank account or PayPal account. 

3. Membership

CashCo Membership is available through a simple registration process after you submit certain requested information to us via the sign up page. Before registration we ask you to agree to our Terms and Conditions and Privacy Policy. If you do not agree to our Terms and Conditions or Privacy Policy you will not be entitled to use the CashCo service.

You must be at least 18 years of age to open a Member Account. A person may have no more than one Account. You must be a resident of the New Zealand to register for a CashCo Account.

You must register for the CashCo program using accurate and current information about yourself - including your correct name, address and any other requested details. If you are asked for, and provide, details of a bank account, PayPal account, or other account into which you wish to receive cashback payments you must ensure that you are, and remain, fully entitled to use that account to receive cashback transfers. You must ensure that the details of any receiving account provided are, and continue to be, accurate. You should keep this information updated through your secure profile page.

By accepting these Terms and Conditions you agree to receive email and/or text message communications from us about offers and other advertising and promotional materials we believe may interest you. You can opt out of receiving these communications at any time by clicking the unsubscribe link in the communication or following the process set out in the text message.

Our Privacy Policy contains important information on how we deal with the personal information you provide through your CashCo Member Account

Note that your Cashback Payment Method (such as your Bank or PayPal account) may have rules about the maximum or minimum payment that you can receive.

You must ensure that the email address we hold for you is kept up-to-date and that you have full access to it - we will be sending you important messages there. If you change email address, then you must change the address we hold for you on your Account.

4. Inactive Member Accounts and Termination of Membership

Membership to CashCo is free. There is no charge to be a Member or to earn and receive cash back. If your account is inactive for a period of more than twelve (12) consecutive months, CashCo reserves the right to debit your CashCo account balance two dollars (NZ$2.00) per month to recover the cost of account maintenance until (i) you reactivate your account by completing a qualifying transaction via the CashCo site; or (ii) your account balance is zero.

If the balance of your inactive account is or becomes zero, CashCo will close the account permanently and cease to maintain your accounts records and program access. The inactive account maintenance charge will not cause your account balance to become negative and will not cause you to owe money to CashCo.

5. Cashback

When a Member completes a transaction through the website, you are eligible for the cashback amount specified at the relevant Retailer. Although we do our best to ensure the Cashback amounts are accurate, CashCo cannot guarantee they will be accurate at the time of your transaction. Cashback will only be tracked when a Member signed in to their account and follows the store link directly form the CashCo website.

5.1 Qualifying Transactions

After an Member successfully completes a Qualifying Transaction, and once we have received the Referral Fee for that Qualifying Transaction, we pass the related Cashback on to the Member through his/her nominated account when the Member requests payment of that Cashback.

Please note that there are various circumstances in which a transaction with a Retailer may not constitute a Qualifying Transaction, and Cashback may not result from it. Certain stores exclude a limited number of products and purchases from the program. CashCo does its best to maintain an up to date list of exclusions on the Retailers page of the site.

Specific Cashback amounts vary by store, product, category or promotional coupon. The details of qualifying cashback offers are provided in detail on the Cashback website pages.

Cashback is paid on the net purchase value. This value excludes all taxes, GST, fees, shipping, gift wrapping, discounts, credits, returns, cancellations and extended warranties.

There are various circumstances in which sums will not appear in a Member’s alance, and will be forfeited to us, namely:

a.        where a Referral Fee is received by us but is not attributed to a Qualifying Transaction or associated with a Members Account (such as where the Member is not logged-in to the CashCo Service when making the relevant purchase)

b.        the transaction in question is cancelled after it has been entered into, for example where a purchased product is returned or a right to cancel the transaction is exercised

c.        a balance is attributed to an Member or Account that has been:

                     i.            suspended by us under Clause 11 of this Agreement;

                    ii.            associated with any fraudulent activity or any breach of this Agreement;

                  iii.            used to make purchases on behalf of, or for the benefit of, any other person

d.        where a Balance is attributable to an Account that has been inactive for more than twelve months: an Account is inactive where the Member does not log into it.

When the CashCo tracking system has tracked a successful Qualifying Transaction to your Account, we will credit your Member Account with a 'Pending’ status. Upon confirmation by the Retailer of any qualifying transaction, the payment will update to 'confirmed' – this can take 90 days or more from the date of the purchase. If the goods are returned or the sale reversed or amended by any means then the cashback payment will not be made. In the event that the Retailer feels that the purchase is not genuine for any reason whatsoever and we do not receive a referral fee for the transaction, the Member will not receive any Cashback.
Whether a transaction shall qualify as a Qualifying for cashback Transaction shall be at the sole discretion of the Retailer or us and the Member understands and agrees to the same. We shall not be held responsible if the Retailer fails to report a sale to us or does not qualify a transaction as a Qualifying Transaction. Further, CashCo shall not be responsible in the event due to some technical or other error we cannot trace a sale back to the Member and does not qualify the transaction as a Qualifying Transaction for any reason.

CashCo will endeavour to recuperate non-payments from the Retailer, the decision of ourselves, the Retailer or Retailer's tracking agent is final. Whilst we will try and recuperate missing commissions, at any point we reserve the right not to chase missing commission claims, particularly where no purchase has been made or where the transaction has not been tracked for any reason whatsoever.

5.2 Cashback Enquiries

In the event of a disputed or missing Cashback a Member must complete the “Missing Cashback Form” When a Member sends us an enquiry, our system will determine if the user had an exit click from our site for that store on the date given by the user. If no exit click exists, we will advise the Member that no click has been recorded (refer below for more info on tracking). All exit clicks are recorded to cross reference transaction and cashback values.

Should a cashback enquiry result in a payment by the Retailer, CashCo will credit the Member Account with a revised cashback amount based on any agreed payment by the Retailer. In some cases you may receive a lower amount than expected due to the Retailer payment being lower than the original claim. If after a period of six months a Retailer hasn’t agreed to a missing cashback claim, we reserve the right to close the enquiry claim at our discretion.

5.3 Cashback adjustments

We reserve the right to reclaim or make balance adjustments accordingly where it has been established that any credit has been applied in error. This will include but is not limited to transactions where the credit is not genuinely due or payment for any credited transaction has not been received from a Retailer or its agencies and/or misuse or fraud. This can include transactions which are already marked as payable or “Confirmed” in your Account, or for transactions which have already been paid over to you by account transfer or any other means.

5.4 Withdrawing Cashback

Members can withdraw confirmed cashback when their CashCo account has a minimum credit of $NZ20. Cash payments will be made monthly directly to your nominated NZ bank account or PayPal account.

In the event the Member decides to close the Account with us or the Member's Account is closed for any reason whatsoever, before reaching the initial $NZ20 limit, the Member will forfeit any confirmed or pending cashback credit.  We have the discretion to forfeit any such validated balance showing on your Account for the reasons provided elsewhere in this Agreement.

5.5 Foreign Currency

The purchase price of all goods and services offered for sale in the CashCo program are in the currency specified by the Retailer. CashCo members must check with the retailer if they are in any doubt regarding the currency of their purchase.

Cashback earned on purchases conducted in currencies other than New Zealand Dollars ($NZ) are calculated based on monthly fixed currency exchange rates on the relevant exchange rate on the first day of each calendar month, sourced form www.xe.com. These rates are subject to change without notice

5.6 Cookies

To earn Cashback, Member must complete their purchase during the same shopping session you start after clicking the CashCo link. Cookies are used to authenticate the user and to track transaction details. To ensure cashback credits are applied to your Member Account, Members must ensure cookies are enabled. CashCo cannot guarantee tracking accurate transaction information if cookies are disabled

10. Our Role

CashCo is not a party to any transactions with Retailers, and is not the seller or supplier of, and does not endorse, any of the goods or services that they make available. Thus we do not have any of the legal obligations that apply to the sellers of those goods or services.

Accordingly, we have no control over or responsibility for:

a.        the quality, safety, or legality of the goods or services available from Retailers; or

b.        whether the Retailer can or will supply and pass good title to any goods or services.

Members should exercise no lesser degree of caution in entering into transactions with Retailers than they would when entering into a similar transaction elsewhere.

To the extent that the law permits, you release us, our agents and employees from all liability arising out of or in connection with any transactions with Retailers, including (without limitation) all claims and demands relating to transactions (whether completed or uncompleted) with Retailers, or goods or services offered for sale or supply, or actually sold or supplied, through or in connection with any transactions with Retailers.

11. Misuse

We reserve the right to suspend or terminate any Members access to the CashCo Service, or parts of it, if in our reasonable view the relevant Member or Account appears to be in breach of any provision of this Agreement.

An Account should be used only for purchases on the Member's own behalf, and not on the behalf of, or for the benefit of, any other person(s).

Members must not enter into, or attempt to enter into, any transaction with a Retailer or to endeavour to gain Cashback (a) by providing personal information of someone else, or a payment method which they are not entitled to use, (b) by deceptively or unfairly exploiting a Retailer's offering, or (c) in breach of any terms and conditions applied by CashCo or the Retailer to that transaction.

It is each Member's obligation to ensure that any material posted by him/her or associated with his/her Account:

a.        is not defamatory, offensive, or abusive or of an obscene, indecent or menacing nature;

b.        is not intended or likely to cause needless annoyance, inconvenience or distress to any person;

c.        does not contain any computer virus, macro virus, Trojan horse, worm, or anything else designed to interfere with, interrupt, or disrupt the normal operating procedures of a computer or to surreptitiously intercept, access without authority, or expropriate any system, data or personal information;

d.        does not contravene any applicable law or regulation (including, but not limited to, laws governing consumer protection, distance selling, unfair competition, anti-discrimination, false advertising, copyright, trademark and privacy);

e.        does not breach the rights of any person or entity (including any rights or expectations of privacy);

f.         where it constitutes feedback on a Retailer, is accurate and fair; and

g.        does not advertise any goods or services.

If you see or experience anything on the CashCo Service that appears to infringe any of the above requirements, we would like you to inform us by using our Contact form

Each Member acknowledges that we are entitled, but not obliged, to withdraw any material, which appears - based on information received from third parties or other Members - to be in breach of this Agreement.

12. Contact from third parties

If anyone contacts us in relation to material or transactions associated with you or your Account, then you agree:

a.        to provide all reasonable information and assistance we may require in connection with responding to that contact; and

b.        to respond promptly and accurately to it, should we pass the message to you for a response.

13. Additional services

We or our partners may offer new or additional services through the CashCo Service from time to time. Your use of those services may be subject to additional terms and conditions, which you must comply with. Provided that those terms are notified to you on the CashCo Service in an appropriate manner when you agree to take those services, any failure by you to comply with a material provision of the terms governing those services will amount to a breach of this Agreement.

14. Operation of the CashCo Service

We reserve the right to withdraw, modify or suspend aspects of the CashCo Service, or the entirety of it, where we have legal, security, technical or commercial reasons to do so. We will endeavour to give you 30 days advance notice before taking such action, except where it is necessary to take earlier action for security reasons or because of technical difficulties which adversely affect the CashCo Service. There may also be times when the CashCo Service becomes inaccessible as a result of technical difficulties experienced by CashCo or on the Internet; we will, however, use reasonable skill and care to overcome these difficulties where they are within our control. Please note, however, that we cannot guarantee continuous access to the CashCo Service or any of the content that appears on it.

Nevertheless, we will strive to ensure that any periods of planned unavailability, which you will be informed of when you access the CashCo Service at the relevant time, are kept to a minimum.

For security or other reasons, we may require you to change password or other information which facilitates access to the CashCo Service; however, we will never ask you for your password via email, telephone, or any other means other than through the Cashco.co.nz website. You are solely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password and any additional identifying information.

15. Liability

a.        We warrant that the CashCo Service will be provided with reasonable care and skill with the intention of meeting our specifications for the CashCo Service, but we cannot and do not guarantee that the CashCo Service will meet your requirements.

(a) the Content (including without limitation any errors or misstatements); 
(b) the Website; and 
(c) the Goods and/or Services supplied by any advertiser.

Where any such liability cannot be excluded then, subject to clause 15(b) , we limit our liability to the greater of $10 or the amount confirmed, approved and received by us as cashback from any partner Retailer. If any issue does arise, you may have recourse directly against the partner store.

f.         We will not be liable to you or anyone else, whether in contract, tort (including negligence, breach of statutory duty or other tort) or otherwise:

                     i.            for any loss of revenue, business, anticipated savings or profits, or

                    ii.            for any indirect, special or consequential loss, damage, costs or other claims, howsoever caused or arising, whether through non-supply or late supply of the CashCo Service or other non-performance of this Agreement or otherwise.

g.        Except as expressly stated elsewhere in this Agreement, all representations, warranties, conditions and other terms, whether express or implied (by common law, statute, collaterally or otherwise) are hereby excluded, except in the case of fraud, or where such exclusion is not permitted by law.

h.        For the avoidance of doubt, CashCo will not have liability to you or any other person in respect of material contributed by Members, transactions (or non-transactions) with Retailers, or any activity or communication relating to such material or transactions.
