Please read these Terms of Service and our Privacy Policy (collectively, the “User Terms”) fully and carefully before using www.LoLoEffect.com (the “Site”), the LoLo Application on your smartphone or tablet (the “App”), www.ThankLocal.com (also the “Site”), and the services, features, content or applications offered by LoLo, LLC (“we”, “us”, “our” or “LoLo”) through the Sites and App (together with the Sites and App, the “Services”).

By accessing and using the Services, you are agreeing to these terms, because use of the Services, including the ability to earn LoDough, purchase LoDough certificates, redeem ThankLocal gifts, and be a participating LoLocation or ThankLocal Partner is subject to compliance with these User Terms.

Use of the Services as a LoLocation or ThankLocal Partner may require payment by you, and may be subject to additional terms regarding purchasing gifts, offering rewards and honoring gifts and rewards.

These User Terms apply equally to all of our “Users”, including “LoyalLocal Users” (those users who earn rewards points or “LoDough” through qualified purchases at LoLocations); “LoLocations” (our business partners who offer points rewards, redeem LoDough rewards, and offer ThankLocal gifts); and “ThankLocal” partners (our business partners who purchase gifts from LoLocations) (collectively “you” or “your” or “user” unless noted otherwise)

1. Acceptance of Terms

By registering for and/or using the Services in any manner, including but not limited to visiting or browsing the Site or App, you agree to these User Terms, Privacy Policy, and all other operating rules, policies and procedures that may be published from time to time on the Site or App by us, each of which is incorporated by reference and each of which may be updated from time to time without notice to you. Certain of the Services may be subject to additional terms and conditions specified by us from time to time; your use of such Services is subject to those additional terms and conditions, which are incorporated into these Terms of Service by this reference. These User Terms apply to all users of the Services, including users who register and accumulate LoDough, LoLocations, and ThankLocal participants. Additional terms apply to participating Merchants and are set forth in the “Merchant Terms and Conditions” as may be amended.

2. Modification of User Terms

We reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to modify or replace any of these User Terms, or change, suspend, or discontinue the Services at any time by posting a notice on the Site or by sending you notice through the Services or via e-mail. We may also impose limits on certain aspects of the Services without notice or liability. We may provide some notice, whether through e-mail or otherwise, if these User Terms are changed in any significant way, but it is your responsibility to check these User Terms periodically for changes. Your continued participation in the Program following the posting of any changes to these Program Terms constitutes acceptance of those changes.

3. The Services

The Services are operated by us and consist of the capability to engage in transactions that allow registered end-users (“LoyalLocal User”) to accumulate LoDough (“LoDough”) for qualifying purchases made at participating merchants (the “LoLocation”) that can be exchanged for rewards (“Reward Items”).

Additional services are provided to “ThankLocal” partners which can purchase certificates from LoLocations for gifts to be awarded to users of their choice such as for lead generation, client engagement, and staff/volunteer appreciation.

4. How LoyalLocal Rewards and LoDough Work

What Is LoDough?

a. Users accumulate LoDough through Eligible Purchases as long as they have been active (made an Eligible Purchase from a LoLocation) in the last 12 calendar months. From time to time, we may offer promotional opportunities to earn additional or matching LoLo LoDough.

b. You may use LoDough by cashing in LoDough on the Site or App for a LoLo Reward Item redeemable at a LoLocation within the Merchant Network. All redemptions are subject to review and may be adjusted or canceled at our discretion.

c. Each Merchant may offer an amount of LoDough per dollar of Eligible Purchases. Purchases are rounded to the nearest 100th of a dollar. In the event that multiple offers are shown for a merchant, you shall only be eligible to accumulate LoDough through one offer per Eligible Purchase

d. Any and all tax liability (including, without limitation, any sales tax liability) incurred as a consequence of the accumulation and/or redemption of LoDough shall be your sole responsibility.

e. We reserve the right to change the amount of LoDough that may be earned in connection with any qualifying purchase or other activity.

f. Any change in the amount of LoDough that may be earned in connection with any qualifying purchase or other activity will not affect LoDough already awarded in accordance with the Program.

g. LoDough has no cash value.

h. LoDough will typically post to your account within 2-7 days following an Eligible Purchase, however in some cases it make take longer.

How Do I Use LoDough?

a. To accrue and accumulate LoDough with us you must register for the Service and make a purchase with your registered credit or debit card from a local merchant in our network (the “LoLocation”) (an “Eligible Purchase”).

b. Subject to limited exceptions, in our sole discretion, purchases prior to your registration with us shall not be Eligible Purchases and you shall not accrue any LoDough for such purchases.

c. Purchases made through a third party and not directly from a LoLocation currently in our merchant network at the time of purchase shall not be Eligible Purchases and you shall not accrue any LoDough for such purchases.

d. If your credit or debit card is declined for a purchase, if your item is returned, or if a refund or chargeback is awarded for the goods you purchased, your purchase will not be deemed completed and no LoDough shall accrue as a result of such purchase. In our sole discretion, we may deduct LoDough from your account in order to make adjustments for returns and cancellations with respect to Eligible Purchases.

e. Some LoLocations participate in LoLo through a third party service provider. In such cases, if you are a member in other programs operated by those third party service providers, your purchase may only be an Eligible Purchase in one program.

f. LoLocations may join or leave the LoLo Program without notice. A LoLocation must be currently in our merchant network at the time of a purchase for your Purchase to be eligible.

g. Any dispute concerning an Eligible Purchase and/or our failure to recognize an Eligible Purchase shall be brought to our attention within 30 days or shall be deemed waived.

h. LoDough may be used to purchase Rewards Items, including LoLo Certificates, in accordance with the offers in effect at the time of redemption. The types of Rewards Items redeemable for accumulated LoDough, and the amount of LoDough necessary to purchase such Rewards Items, may be changed by us at any time for any reason or no reason.

i. We reserve the right to cancel or modify any Rewards offering or Gift Certificates in the event of a mistake or error in the offering of the reward or Gift Certificate, or if the reward or Gift Certificate violates our Terms of Service or any applicable law or regulation.

j. Merchants are solely responsible for honoring certificates and ThankLocal gifts. LoLo has no obligation to honor certificates and ThankLocal gifts.

k. Users shall forfeit their LoDough balance (a) after disqualification or suspension from the Services, (b) after suspension of such User’s account, (c) after deleting such User’s account on LoLo, or (d) after twelve (12) months of account inactivity from the date LoDough was last earned or redeemed.

a. LoDough certificates are redeemable at our participating LoLocations. Participating LoLocations must accept and honor all gifts and certificates.
