By registering, you are indicating that you have read and that you agree to these terms. You understand that we may update these terms from time to time without giving you any notice. Unless we let you know by giving you notice, any new or updated features or services that we put on our website will be subject to these terms.

MatPlace is an online shopping engine that combines cash back discounts and online coupons.
CASH BACK PAYMENT METHOD
MatPlace pays its members electronically via PayPal, or transferred to your credit card by a third-party processor.
To join MatPlace and use our services, you must be at least 18 years of age. If you are under 18 years of age, you may join MatPlace only with the supervision and consent of your parent or legal guardian. If you are under 13 years of age, you may not join MatPlace. You must have Internet access and an email address to use MatPlace, and we are not responsible for your inability to connect to the Internet to access our website or your account.
You are responsible for maintaining accurate account information at all times, including valid email and mailing addresses. You are responsible for keeping your email address, mailing address, password, and all other private information confidential. MatPlace is not responsible for any changes made to your account by any party that uses your email address and password. You are responsible for following the Terms of Service and policies, for not engaging in inappropriate use of the MatPlace website and services offered or its affiliate merchant sites, or for not engaging in fraudulent practices.
We will provide you with links on the MatPlace website to the websites of affiliated merchants. When you click one of these links and make a qualifying purchase at that merchant's website, you will receive the specified amount of cash back posted to your MatPlace account. We will make every effort to accurately track and report your qualifying purchases, but you will not hold us liable for any delays or failures in tracking or reporting that are the fault of the merchant in reporting your purchase to us. Furthermore, you will not hold us liable for any technical failures that delay or prevent your purchase, and therefore your possible earnings from being reported to us. If you have disabled cookies or other technologies used in tracking purchases, this may be the cause of such technical failure. Other causes may include:
You used a coupon or promotion from another website, another (non-internet) source or from an email directly from the merchant.
You added the item(s) to your shopping cart before clicking through from MatPlace.com.
Your purchase was for a gift card or was paid for with a gift card.
You used a third party payment service such as Google Checkout to pay for the order.
You closed your web browser window before completing your purchase.
Your browser is not configured to accept cookies or you cleared the cookies on your computer while in the middle of placing an order.
You accessed the website through another referral website or by typing the website URL directly into your browser.
User error, known or unknown
Merchant website error or tracking malfunction
You clicked through to the merchant website to start your tracking session, but took longer than 24 hours to complete your order.
You checked out from the merchant site multiple times, but only clicked through from MatPlace once.
IN THE EVENT OF A DISPUTE BETWEEN YOU AND A MERCHANT LISTED ON THIS WEBSITE, TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, YOU RELEASE MatPlace, ITS AFFILIATES AND ANY THIRD PARTIES UNDER CONTRACT WITH MatPlace, AND THEIR RESPECTIVE OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, AND LEGAL REPRESENTATIVES FROM AND AGAINST CLAIMS AND DAMAGES OF ANY KIND, KNOWN AND UNKNOWN, SUSPECTED AND UNSUSPECTED, DISCLOSED AND UNDISCLOSED, ARISING OUT OF OR IN ANY WAY CONNECTED WITH SUCH A DISPUTE.
"A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which, if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor."
Occasionally purchases at our affiliated merchants' websites will not generate commissions for MatPlace. These may include, but are not limited to, gift certificates, gift cards, purchases for the purpose of reselling, and other items determined by the merchant. MatPlace is not obligated to pay cash back for purchases that do not generate a commission for MatPlace or for which a merchant cancels a commission.
If you return an item to a merchant AFTER receiving your cash back check for the purchase of that item, MatPlace has the right to recover these earnings from you and may take necessary deductions from your MatPlace account.
PRICING & PRODUCT AVAILABILITY
MatPlace is not responsible for products on its website that become unavailable or out of stock.
MatPlace also strives to show accurate tax and shipping costs, but please keep in mind that for some stores, the tax and shipping costs shown are only estimates. Shipping cost estimates are based on the shipping policies of the merchant, product weight, shipping destination, distribution center location, and carrier used (UPS, USPS, FedEx, etc.). In some cases, however, MatPlace is not provided with all information necessary to estimate the exact tax and shipping costs.
MatPlace works directly with merchants to ensure that all coupons displayed are active and that any exceptions are listed with the coupon. Occasionally, however, coupons may not work because of a merchant error or other technical error. Other times a specific item not listed in the exceptions will not be eligible for the discount. MatPlace is not responsible for any coupons that do not work. If you try to use a coupon and it doesn't work, please report the issue to us and we will do our best to reactivate the coupon, get a new coupon, or provide clarification on why the coupon did not work.
If your user account is inactive for 365 consecutive days, you hereby release all rights to cash in your account and funds in your gift card balance, which shall automatically and immediately vest in MatPlace without any requirement of notice to you.
The currency of all payments will be Euro. We will only send out payments when you have at least 50 EUR of "Available" money (this includes cash back) in your MatPlace account. MatPlace accounts cannot be combined to achieve a total of 50 EUR "Available" funds. Your cash back on a specific purchase will become "Available" once the return time on that purchase has passed. Return times are standardized for all merchants to be a period of 30 days. The return time does not only reflect the time allowed to return the item to the merchant, but also the time allowed for the merchant to cancel the commission paid to MatPlace for reasons including but not limited to returns due to product defect, invalid coupon use, or fraudulent orders. Once the return time has passed your earnings will become "Available" for withdrawal.
MatPlace is not responsible for any event beyond the control of MatPlace that would prevent you from receiving your payment. Such an event may include, but is not limited to, lost mail or an error made by you in typing your mailing address, or a change of address of which you have not notified MatPlace. MatPlace reserves the right to withhold payment of cash back indefinitely for any reason including but not limited to: suspected fraud, merchant concerns, or unusual activity. If you feel your cash back payment is being improperly withheld, please contact us and we will be happy to work through the issue with you.
MatPlace thanks you for referring your friends. To refer a friend to MatPlace simply use one of your referral links, which you can find on any product, store or coupon page as well as your account page. When your friend clicks this link and signs up we attribute that sign up to you. MatPlace rewards you with a 5 EUR referral bonus for every friend you refer to MatPlace who completes purchases through MatPlace where the euro amount of your friend’s purchases exceed 5 EUR and the cash back earnings exceed 1 EUR (cash back from sign up bonuses and referral bonuses do not count toward this minimum). The MatPlace 5 EUR referral bonus becomes available for redemption immediately after your friend's qualifying purchase is reported to MatPlace. U
MatPlace also rewards you by paying you a 10% bonus on all cash back your friends earn during their first year with MatPlace. The MatPlace 10% referral bonus becomes available for redemption when your friend’s associated purchase and cash back become available, generally 30 days after the purchase was made.
MatPlace is not responsible for any event beyond the control of MatPlace that would prevent you from receiving your MatPlace referral bonuses. Such an event may include, but is not limited to, an error or omission made by a friend during the sign up process. MatPlace reserves the right to withhold payment of MatPlace referral bonuses indefinitely for any reason including: self-referrals, referrals of members of the same household, suspected fraud, merchant concerns, returns or unusual activity. MatPlace also reserves the right to reclaim MatPlace referral bonuses if any of the above mentioned issues are discovered after an MatPlace referral bonus payment is issued. If you feel your MatPlace referral bonuses are being improperly withheld, please contact us and we will be happy to work through the issue with you.
