Buygoon is an online shopping service that permits its Members (each, a "Member") to earn cashback on their purchases, and the purchases of their extended friend network (to 4 degrees of separation) created via Buygoon, made on Buygoon’s partnered retailers’ websites after clicking through from Buygoon. This Agreement is a limited license only, granted by Buygoon to you personally, to use the Service, in accordance with all terms and conditions herein.
Enrolling as a Member of Buygoon is simple and free. All you need to do is enter your e-mail address, create your own password, complete our sign-up form, and click the "Join Now" button. If you were referred to Buygoon by a friend, please use the referral link they sent you or enter the e-mail address of the friend that referred you to Buygoon, so we can place you directly underneath them within their network, which in no way reduces the network that you can build underneath you. If you do not enter the e-mail of the friend that referred you to Buygoon, we will insert you into the Buygoon network either randomly or otherwise at our sole discretion.
Membership in Buygoon and participation in its cashback system is offered to each Member by Buygoon in its sole discretion. You must be an individual person that is 18 years of age to join Buygoon. Only one membership is permitted per person; if you create more than one membership, whether directly or indirectly for your benefit through another entity, Buygoon will be entitled to prohibit your use and access to such accounts at any time, immediately and without notice and you agree you will then have forfeited to Buygoon any and all cashback in such membership account(s) at the time and at all times in the future; you expressly agree this is a fair and fundamental part of this Agreement. You may not use scripts or disguised redirects to derive any benefit, whether financial or otherwise, from Buygoon. You must have your own Internet access and valid e-mail address to be eligible for membership with Buygoon.
In the event Buygoon reasonably believes you have in any way breached this Agreement, including without limitation, by undertaking any use of the Buygoon website or any of its services for any illegal or fraudulent activity, Buygoon may review your account, with or without its retail partners, and may at any time thereafter terminate your membership. Upon such termination you will forfeit any and all monies that may be payable to you by Buygoon. You expressly agree that such termination and remedy for the benefit of Buygoon is reasonable and part of the fundamental bargain of this Agreement. During any such review of your Buygoon account and use of the Services, Buygoon may suspend your access to your account for that period of time that Buygoon decides in necessary to fully complete the review. In addition to the foregoing, Buygoon reserves the right to pursue any other legal action or remedies available to it, through which it may seek actual, direct, indirect, compensatory and or punitive damages. Buygoon may also pursue criminal charges wherever applicable. Buygoon may at any time and for any other reason, terminate your membership, in which case, your sole remedy will be the payment by Buygoon of any monies Buygoon agrees is payable to you as of the date on which Buygoon terminates your membership.
You expressly acknowledge and agree that by becoming a Member of Buygoon you permit us to use information relating to your membership with Buygoon, including without limit the payments made to you by Buygoon, in our marketing, advertising and promotional activities, provided that we will not disclose your personal contact information without prior consent.
3. Earning Cashback
You can earn cashback on your own online purchase and from the purchases of the people in your Buygoon downstream (which are your friends, their friends, their friends and their friends!)
(a) How does it work?
Buygoon partners with various online retailers that pay Buygoon when its Members shop on those retailers’ websites. Buygoon then shares the money it receives from those retailers with the Buygoon Member network, according to this Agreement.
You understand, acknowledge and agree, that you must first login to your Buygoon account and click through from the Buygoon website to the Buygoon partnered retailer websites in order for you to be able to generate and earn cashback on your purchases.
Buygoon is not responsible, nor liable, for any inaccuracy of any cashback percentages or amounts displayed on the Buygoon website. Buygoon will only be responsible for sharing the cash that it actually and permanently receives from its retail partners as a direct and trackable result of a Member’s purchase(s) on the Buygoon retail partners’ websites. If Buygoon does not receive such cash from its retail partners, or if Buygoon is not provided with accurate tracking information for cashback, Buygoon will have no obligation whatsoever to its Member(s) to pay cashback on purchases made by the Buygoon Member from the given retailer(s), notwithstanding that there may have been a cashback percentage or amount displayed on the Buygoon website. A Member’s sole remedy for any claim against Buygoon for cashback will be the Member’s right to terminate its membership and be paid amounts that Buygoon agrees were payable to the Member as of the date of such membership termination. You acknowledge and agree that any obligation to pay you cashback is governed by this Agreement between you and Buygoon, and that no retail partner of Buygoon has any obligation to you whatsoever in relation to cashback that may be payable to you pursuant to the Buygoon membership system. The determination of whether or not the purchases made by you through a Buygoon retail partner’s website qualifies for cashback is at the sole and final discretion of Buygoon. Notwithstanding anything else that may be to the contrary in this Agreement, in the event you disagree with Buygoon in relation to your account or amounts payable or paid to you, your sole remedy is to terminate your Buygoon membership account.
You expressly acknowledge and agree that under this Agreement, your only entitlement may be to cashback calculated by Buygoon as due to you pursuant to Buygoon`s cashback system; you will not at any time have any entitlement to portions of cashback that are generated on your purchases and that are allocated by Buygoon to itself and/or other Members. This agreement creates no direct or indirect legal relationship, right or liability between you and any other Buygoon Member, or the cashback allocated to such persons by Buygoon.
Please note that the purchase amounts on which cashback may be calculated may exclude taxes, fees, shipping, discounts, credits, returns, cancellation, gift wrapping, warranties and other amounts otherwise applied to the purchase amount.
In order for a purchase to qualify for inclusion in the Buygoon program, you must complete your purchase during the same shopping session you start after clicking a given retailer, product or service link on the Buygoon website. If you navigate away to another site before completing your purchase on the given retailer's website, or if you use coupons, codes or links that are not provided by Buygoon, you may not earn cashback from Buygoon on your purchase. You understand and agree that gift cards and gift certificates will not generate cashback except where expressly indicated, or possibly, where a retailer’s primary products are such gift cards or certificates.
You must not disable cookies on your computer, or you may not earn cashback from Buygoon on your purchases. You agree to Buygoon utilizing cookies on your computer; you agree to third party retailers utilizing cookies on your computer and that you will review and agree with such retailer cookie policies prior to using this Service. As used herein, "computer" may be a desktop, laptop, tablet, smartphone or similar device now known or hereinafter invented. You acknowledge and agree that Buygoon may track you navigating on and off of the Buygoon website by assigning you a unique identifier, or by any other means, so that we can correlate your Buygoon membership identity against reports we receive from our retail partners to calculate how much cashback is due to you and to the Members in your upstream.
You acknowledge and agree that use of the Service may require and you will be solely responsible for acquiring at your own expense, one or more compatible devices, Internet access and certain software, which may from time to time and at any time be changed and/or require updates and/or upgrades, all of which may be subject to fees, charges, and costs payable solely by you. In no event will Buygoon be responsible to you or any other entity for any such fees, charges or costs related thereto.
(b) Earning cashback on your own purchases
You can earn cashback as a portion of the amount of your purchases online from retailers that are partnered with Buygoon. The amount of cashback that you earn from your own online purchases will vary from product to product and retailer to retailer. Where products and services are specifically advertised on the Buygoon website, we may show the cashback percentage offered by the given retailer for the given product or service.
(c) Earning cashback from your Buygoon downstream
In addition to cashback on your own online purchases, you can earn a 10% commission on the cashback earned by all the people in your Buygoon downstream when they shop online from retailers that are partnered with Buygoon. You can invite as many friends as you want and your downstream may also contain an unlimited number of referred friends. Your Buygoon downstream will be limited to four layers deep (i.e. your referred friends, their referrals, their referrals and their referrals). Buygoon may, from time to time, and at any time, add Members to any of your downstream layers, and may offer other incentives for membership and/or shopping, whether or not monetary in nature. The fact that Buygoon may add new Members to any given Member’s Buygoon downstream, does not obligate Buygoon to add new Members to any other Member’s downstream.
4. Terms Of Product and/or Service Purchases By Buygoon Members
When you navigate on the Buygoon website, you may choose a given retailer or product or other offer displayed on the Buygoon website by clicking the accompanying shopping link. You will then be navigated directly to the given retailer’s website to complete your purchases. All transactions by you for all products and services displayed on the Buygoon website will be undertaken directly between you and the given retailer. All the terms and conditions of such purchase transactions will be determined directly between you and the given retailer. Buygoon makes no representation, warranty, covenant or agreement, and expressly waives any and all liability, in relation to your purchase of all products and/or services on the retailers’ websites. You hereby expressly waive any and all claims and causes of action against Buygoon that in any way relate to such purchases. Buygoon does not in any way endorse any given retailer, product or service by virtue of same being displayed on the Buygoon website.
5. How Buygoon Pays Its Members
Buygoon currently pays all amounts payable to its Members exclusively via PayPal in either Canadian or US currency at its sole election. It is your sole responsibility and liability to ensure the accuracy of all information that you provide to Buygoon and PayPal. Buygoon expressly waives any and all liability for payments that you do not receive as a result of inaccurate information provided to Buygoon or PayPal. Buygoon reserves the right at any time and from time to time to modify or change its payment methods. You waive any and all claims against Buygoon in relation to any failure on the part of PayPal.
On or about the end of the month following the month in which Buygoon permanently receives cashback from its retail partner(s), Buygoon will permit you to access the amounts of cashback in your Buygoon account in order that you may request a transfer of monies available to you from Buygoon via PayPal. Please note that retailers may take multiple months to pay Buygoon cashback generated by your shopping on such retailers’ website. As noted above, no cashback will be payable to you by Buygoon unless and until Buygoon has received cashback from the respective retailer(s). Buygoon does not issue periodic statements of account, but rather, makes available account reports for user-specified timelines within the Buygoon website.
Please note, that PayPal has a current single payment maximum amount of $9,999.00, which it may change at any time and from time to time, and which will apply to you. Accordingly the maximum single payment amount you may request from Buygoon will be $9,999.00. All payments made to you from Buygoon via PayPal will be subject to and net of any and all service charges, expenses and other fees that may be charged to Buygoon and to you by PayPal.
You hereby represent, warrant, acknowledge and agree, that: (i) you will be solely liable for reporting any and all amounts that you receive from Buygoon to the appropriate governmental authorities as may be required, and you will be solely liable for paying any and all income taxes and similar taxes payable in respect of monies that you receive from Buygoon; and (ii) Buygoon may withhold from you any and all amounts that any applicable governmental or like authority requires Buygoon to withhold. You acknowledge and agree that Buygoon may withhold any and all amounts payable to you unless and until you supply Buygoon with all information that it requires to comply with such applicable governmental or like authorities. Without limiting the foregoing, in the event you are a resident of the United States, and that the amounts payable to you by Buygoon exceed $600 in a given calendar year, Buygoon may be required by law to send you a 1099 form. In such event, we may require additional information from you to complete the 1099 form.
6. Anti-Spam And Prohibited Promotions
Buygoon maintains a zero tolerance policy in relation to spam. We do not endorse or condone the use of spam to promote Buygoon.

This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between the parties hereto with respect to the subject matter hereof and cancels and supersedes any prior understandings and agreements between the parties hereto with respect thereto.

The parties hereto enter into this Agreement as independent contractors. Nothing herein contained will be construed as in any way constituting an employment, a partnership or a joint venture by the parties hereto, or be construed to evidence the intention of the parties to constitute such a relationship.
This Agreement will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the Province of Ontario and the Canadian Federal laws applicable therein, without regard to conflicts of laws rules or the U.N. Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods. For the purpose of all legal proceedings this Agreement will be deemed to have been performed in the Province of Ontario. The foregoing shall apply notwithstanding your physical location, jurisdiction, residence or domicile. Notwithstanding the foregoing in this Paragraph, you agree to comply with ALL governmental (whether federal, provincial, state, municipal or otherwise) laws, statutes, ordinances and regulations that may apply to your use of the Service.

You are not entitled to any proceeds to which Buygoon is or becomes entitled by virtue of winning a legal claim.
