NO PURCHASE IS NECESSARY. VOID WHERE PROHIBITED BY LAW. The Dingo Rewards Program is a loyalty program unique to dingobrand.com (the “Participating Website”) owned or controlled by DB Online, LLC a subsidiary of United Pet Group (the “Website Owner”) that is available only to registered users of the DINGO Rewards Program on the Participating Website (“Users”), and powered by 500Friends, Inc (“Platform Provider”). Users accessing and engaging with the Dingo Rewards Program in accordance with these Dingo Rewards Program Rules (the “Official Rules”) and otherwise in compliance with the then current Dingobrand.com Terms, available at http://www.dingbrand.com/terms.aspx , can earn Points (defined below) for activities described on the Website. Points are then deposited into the User’s account and can be used to redeem rewards (“Rewards”) as outlined at http://www.dingobrand.com/rewards.aspx (“Rewards Site”) and/or for the purposes of allowing Users to participate in rankings, earn recognition for certain activities and other program elements as may determined by the Website Owner from time to time at their sole discretion. Collectively, the Program Features and The Rewards may change from time to time, without notice, at the sole discretion of the Website Owner.


  • Eligibility: The Dingo Rewards Program is offered only in the United States (“US”) (excluding, without limitation, all other US territories and overseas military installations) to individuals who are: (a) over 18 years of age as of the date of their first participation in the Dingo Rewards Program; (b) legal US residents; and (c) possess a valid, active and personal Facebook, Twitter or other third-party account issued in that individual’s name for access to the Dingo Rewards Program on the Website. When registering for the Dingo Rewards Program you agree to only register one (1) account for the purpose of accruing or earning Points. Employees (and all the members of the immediate families or households of such employees) of the Website Owner, and their parents, affiliates, and subsidiaries are ineligible.

  • Dingo Program Participation: The Dingo Rewards Program allows Users to earn Points while using, viewing, interacting or responding to a Website, in accordance with the rules of any promotion and the earning points provisions of these Official Rules. For the purposes of the Dingo Rewards Program, “Points” mean those particular Dingo Rewards Program measurement increments, which can be used to redeem certain Rewards. Points and their values are: (a) determined by the Website Owner at its sole discretion; (b) subject to change without notice; (c) may vary among promotions; (d) are subject to approval; and (e) may be subject to a limit for the amount of points that may be earned during a defined period and/or for specific actions as determined at the sole discretion of the Website Owner. All Points, including but not limited to earning, saving and using, must be used in compliance with these Official Rules. Points are not transferable and Points cannot be earned after the Dingo Rewards Program is terminated, as set forth below. Unless prohibited by law, unused Points are forfeited upon termination of the Dingo Rewards Program. Participation in the Dingo Rewards Program constitutes acceptance of these Official Rules. These Official Rules may change, in Website Owner’s sole discretion, with or without notice to any User. The Platform Provider shall not be liable to any User or Website Owner for any changes in the Official Rules. If a change occurs, the User’s continued participation in the Dingo Rewards Program shall constitute agreement to the changes. A User may terminate participation by notifying Website Owner at rewards@dingobrand.com and upon such termination the User may use Points accumulated up to the date of termination. A User may have only one identity that can be used to accrue Points for the Website’s promotions. Any User or person who tries to use more than one user account, user ID or create more than one identity to obtain more Points shall be disqualified At Website Owner’s sole discretion.

  • Earning Points: Subject to change, Users may earn a certain number of Points for particular activities as those Point-earning activities are fully described in the program overview at www.dingobrand.com/rewards.aspx or through a particular promotion through which a User is invited to participate. Points and point-earning activities shall be reflected in a widget displayed on the Website and/or on Facebook.com and may be recorded for review by the Website Owner. Points will be deposited in a commercially reasonable time after they are earned. Any inquiries regarding Points not correctly deposited must be received by Website Owner within ten (10) business days of the date of alleged accrual of Points. A User’s earned Points are not transferable.

  • Point Redemption: Users will earn Rewards as described on www.dingobrand.com/rewards.aspx or through a particular promotion through which a User is invited to participate. Depending upon the Reward earned, either the User will receive the Reward from the Website Owner or from the Platform Provider directly. If a User has a problem with their Reward, they can contact Website Owner at rewards@dingobrand.com.

  • Termination: This Rewards Program may terminate at Website Owner’s sole discretion, upon notice of termination of the Dingo Rewards Program. Notice of termination shall be provided to Users in the manner Website Owner deems reasonable, including but not limited to, posting such notice on the Dingo Website, Facebook application or via email. Points may expire, subject to applicable law. Users must redeem and use all Points before expiration or the effective date of termination. However, notice of early termination shall not be provided for any actions, petitions or adjudications associated with bankruptcy, insolvency, assignments to creditors or material business interruptions of the Website Owner, or the Platform Provider.

  • General Conditions: All federal, state and local laws and regulations apply. Taxes on Rewards if any, are the User’s sole responsibility. Again, Points are not transferable. Once a User accumulates $600 (US dollars) worth of Points, whether or not those Points are redeemed and used for Rewards or accumulated over an extended period of time, the User may be required to complete an Affidavit and Release, with Points subject to forfeiture if not returned within the stated time.
