1.Introduction

  • 1.1 Rubids Cash Back Shopping Program

    Rubids.com (Rubids) offers a service that allows members to earn cash back on purchases made. Joining and using Rubids is free and simple, requiring only your email address and a password to get started. Rubids does not sell or rent your personal information to third parties, and Rubids does not 'spam' its members. Rubids does not install or require you to install software on your computer. In other words, there is no 'catch'. Rubids receives a fee for referring buyers to affiliated stores and uses that fee to pay members cash back on their purchases. Please read this complete member agreement ("Agreement") for full details on the Rubids Cash Back Shopping Program ("Program"). We think you will agree that Rubids offers the smartest way to shop online or in-store.

  • 1.1.1 Earning Cash Back

    Earning back a portion of your purchases as cash back ("Cash Back") is straightforward. Choose a store, product, coupon or other offer displayed on Rubids.com or an Rubids application, click the accompanying shopping link to be directed to an affiliated store's website ("Affiliate Store"), and complete a purchase to earn Cash Back on your net purchase amount. You may also earn Cash Back on purchases made 'in-store' at a limited number of stores by presenting an Rubids coupon at time of check out. Such stores and coupons are clearly identified on Rubids.com. Specific Cash Back amounts vary by store and product category and are provided in detail at Rubids.com. Please note that the net purchase amount excludes taxes, fees, shipping, gift-wrapping, discounts or credits, returns or cancellations, and extended warranties.

    Certain Affiliate Stores exclude a limited number of products and purchases from the Program. Rubids does its best to minimize and maintain an up-to-date list of exclusions on Rubids.com. Additionally, to earn Cash Back, you must complete your purchase during the same shopping session you start after clicking on the Rubids link. If you visit other sites before completing your purchase or use coupons not provided by Rubids, your purchase might be associated with a service other than Rubids and you might not earn cash back on your purchase. If you disable 'cookies' on your computer you will not be able to earn Cash Back as cookies are used to authenticate the user and be certain Cash Back is assigned to the Member account.

  • 1.1.2 Earning Bonuses & Other Rewards

    Rubids periodically offers monetary bonuses or other rewards for sign-up in the Program, for referring other new Members, or for other specific actions. The terms and conditions accompanying such offers will govern how they are earned and paid if the terms and conditions differ from this Agreement. To qualify for a sign-up bonus payment, a new Member must establish an Active Account (defined below) and make minimum qualifying purchases totaling at least twenty-five dollars ($25.00) within ninety (90) days of becoming a Member. To qualify for a referral bonus, a Member must refer a new Member who establishes his or her own Active Account and makes his or her own minimum qualifying purchases totaling at least twenty-five dollars ($25.00) within the first ninety (90) days of becoming a Member. Please note that sign-up and referral bonuses are given for the purpose of attracting brand new Members to Rubids. An individual person is only eligible for one sign-up bonus and may earn only one referral bonus per individual person referred. To be sent a gift card bonus, Member must have a valid address in the United States or Canada only.

  • 1.1.3 Receiving Payment

    To receive payment of accrued Cash Back and any other rewards, you must establish and maintain an active account with Rubids ("Active Account") with the information necessary to process your payment: a valid email address at which you are able to receive email, a valid postal address at which you are able to receive mail, your first and last name, and a password to protect your account. To maintain your Active Account, you must update your information if it changes and have shopped via Rubids.com or an Rubids Application or have accrued Cash Back at any time within the last twelve (12) months.

    Rubids pays its members accrued Cash Back and other rewards every 3 months, at a minimum. Rubids pays members in U.S. dollars via check, Paypal, and sometimes other payment options. Members may select or change their payment options in the My Rubids section of Rubids.com. If your check expires without being cashed or deposited or if it is returned to Rubids, it will be returned to your account, where it will be subject to inactive account maintenance charges described below. Each payment represents Cash Back and other rewards earned and accrued during the prior quarter based on the schedule below. The minimum payment amount is $5.01. Balances below $5.01 remain in your account for potential payment during the next payment period.

    Please note that orders from a few Affiliate Stores may be delayed by one pay cycle due to delayed processing and reporting by the stores. We do our best to expedite payments and to maintain a list of stores whose practices might delay our ability to pay Cash Back on your purchase. Rubids reserves the right to delay payment for any purchase based on changes to Affiliate Store policies and procedures at any time.

  • 1.3 Rubids Penny Auction Program

    The following Terms & Conditions shall apply to the relationship between Rubids Holdings LLC, all subsidiaries of Rubids Holdings LLC, and www.Rubids.com ("Rubids"), and the end user ("You" or "Your"). By using Rubids' services, You accept these Terms & Conditions, as well as the manner in which Rubids operates. These Terms & Conditions constitute the entire agreement between Rubids and You and supersede and replace all prior commitments, undertakings or representations, whether written or oral, between You and Rubids with respect of Your use of Rubids.

Information on Rubids, such as the "Rubids 101", "Help" or "About Us" sections, are only recommendations and are not intended as rules or guidelines. Rubids is not liable or responsible for the actions of users or other individuals who have read or been informed of such information or other written material.

As is typical with auctions, Rubids cannot guarantee that You will be the winner of any individual auction or that the final price in any auction will be a tremendous discount. Sometimes bidding can be very competitive, and the competition tends to grow as the products become more valuable or sought after.

In order to give You a sense of what Your competition might be, below is a chart that shows how many bidders participated historically in certain auctions and about how many bids the winner of the auction placed.

By accepting the Terms & Conditions and/or registering with Rubids, You confirm that You are at least 18 years of age and at least age of majority under applicable laws of the country, state, city, or other jurisdiction (each, a "Jurisdiction") of Your residence, that You can engage in a binding contract, and that You meet all other eligibility requirements contained in these Terms & Conditions. By using Rubids, You warrant that You have the right, authority, and capacity to enter into this agreement and to abide by all of the Terms & Conditions.

You must reside in one of the 50 states of the United States or Washington D.C.

Rubids employees and their family members (defined as parents, spouse, siblings and children) and any persons residing in the same household as Rubids employees may not under any circumstances participate in Rubids auctions.

Rubids products and services are offered exclusively to private users and not to commercial or semi-commercial retailers.

Rubids reserves the right to limit in its sole discretion the number of user accounts per natural person and the number of won auctions per user account. A single credit card may not be used in conjunction with multiple user accounts. Rubids limits the number of user accounts per natural person to one (exceptions may apply – contact customer support with any questions at support@Rubids.com). A single user account may win a maximum of twelve (12) auctions, excluding bid voucher auctions, in a 28-day period. A single user account may only win a maximum of twelve (12) auctions per 24-hour period. A user account may only be winning a maximum of five (5) auctions at any one time, plus one (1) beginner auction if applicable, less the number of current auction wins over the previous 24-hour period. A user account generally may win only one of the same item with a value price greater than $285 in value during a 28-day period and /or one item with a value price equal to or greater than $1,000 during a 28-dayperiod. However, Rubids reserves the right to, from time to time and in its sole discretion, impose different win limits for specific products.

You may not participate in collusion with other users. Rubids reserves the right to permanently close the accounts of users suspected of collusion. If Your account has been closed due to suspicion of collusion, You will no longer be entitled to refunds for Your purchases on Rubids.

If you have any questions, concerns, or comments about our Terms & Conditions, please email us at support@Rubids.com.


Odds of Winning Auctions

Every auction is unique and the results of all auctions offered on Rubids depend on the number of users participating in such auctions and the skill of the users participating in the auctions; precise odds of winning are therefore unavailable.

Bids are purchased in advance in the form of "Bid Packs." Rubids reserves the right to offer different size Bid Packs at different times. Should You not honor a payment, You will be charged a returned payment fee. Rubids reserves the right to block access to a user's account until payment in full of the invoice amount, including any fees due to returned payment, etc., and to withhold any outstanding deliveries until payment in full is received.

From time to time, free bids may be offered. Free bids are only valid until the expiration date stated in the promotion, which is typically seven days. Once a bid is placed in an auction, it is deducted from the user's bid account and can no longer be refunded, irrespective of whether or not the bid is successful.

You can place bids in two ways: (1) manually by clicking an auction's "Bid" button and/or (2) by using the Bid-O-Bots function. Bid-O-Bots is an automated feature which lets You bid on an auction even when You are not online or logged in. Bid-O-Bots autoBotsally places bids according to Your instructions. You can read more about how the Bid-O-Bots operates in the "Rubids Quick Guides" and "Help" sections.

A maximum of 20 seconds will be added to the timer and one bid will be deducted from Your account with each bid placed. An auction ends when the timer on the Rubids server(s) hits zero. The winner of an auction is the last bidder the database recorded before the timer on the Rubids server(s) hit zero.

Bids are a limited license to participate in Rubids auctions and have no monetary value. You may not obtain any money in exchange for Bids; however, Rubids has a limited return policy with respect to purchased Bid Packs. For one year after purchasing a Bid Pack, You have the right to a full refund for the purchase price of the unused bids remaining in the Bid Pack. Voucher and Free Bids are not eligible for a refund. To the extent there are unused Bids in Your account, and there has been no activity for two years, You will be charged an inactivity fee of five (5) Bids per month for each inactive Bid Pack. All Bids expire after three years of inactivity. Once we delete Bids we will not reinstate them, except at our discretion.

When You place Bids, the first Bids used will be Bids from Bid Packs, starting with the Bids that are going to expire the soonest. After Bids from Bid Packs are exhausted, Free Bids will be used, starting with the Bids that are closest to expiring. After Free Bids are exhausted, Voucher Bids are used, starting with the Bids that are closest to expiring. At Rubids sole discretion, You may be given an opportunity to select which type of bids to use on an auction.

If You ever believe that Your account does not reflect Bids that You have acquired validly, You must notify us within six months of the date You claim to have acquired the Bids.

If You did not win an auction, You may still purchase the item at our Value Price using the Buy Now feature. You have two hours after an auction ends to utilize this feature. Once You click the Buy Now button, You will receive credit for the cost of the Bids You placed in that particular auction toward the Value Price of the item You are purchasing. Please note that You will not receive any credit for Voucher Bids, Free Bids, or bids that are more than one year old with regard to the Buy Now feature. You may not purchase an item through the Buy Now feature until You have purchased at least one bid pack and placed at least one bid on the auction for the item You want to purchase. You can read more about Buy Now in the "Rubids quick guides" sections.

Rubids attempts to limit some auctions to users of comparable skill, as determined by Rubids, to enhance user experience and maintain a viable business model. In so doing, Rubids may limit which auctions are available to particular users based on any factors deemed appropriate by Rubids in its sole discretion, including experience of the user, historical success of the user, demographic factors, prior bidding and spending activity, and other factors. In particular, Rubids may limit certain auctions to less experienced or successful users in any manner Rubids deems appropriate to optimize the overall user experience of all Rubids users. You acknowledge that You may be, and You consent to being, excluded from auctions at Rubids discretion.

Rubids may allow users in multiple countries to participate in a single auction. Rubids offers these auctions through a group of affiliates located in each country in which Rubids operates. By participating in these auctions, You agree that you are participating in them solely through the Rubids affiliate located in Your country. Although users participating in auctions are participating in a single auction, the actual item offered and bid upon, and the price at which such item is offered and bid upon, may vary based on the country in which the user is located. Although Rubids strives to offer identical or similar items to all users participating in a single auction at an identical or similar price, manufacturers' practices, product availability, currency exchange rates, and other factors make this impractical in some circumstances. By participating in an auction, You agree that Rubids may offer a different but similar (as determined by Rubids in its sole discretion) item at a different but similar (as determined by Rubids in its sole discretion) price to users located in other countries participating in the same auction.

Rubids may, in its sole discretion, offer auctions that allow users to choose the product they want from a specified list of products after they win an auction or choose to Buy Now. Although Rubids strives to offer products in an auction that are of an identical or similar price, manufacturers' practices, product availability, currency exchange rates and other factors make this impractical in some circumstances. By participating in auctions, you agree that Rubids may, in its sole discretion, offer different products at different but similar (as determined by Rubids in its sole discretion) prices.

Rubids reserves the right to, from time to time, in its sole discretion, change the price of bids. Rubids has a feature called "Locked Auctions". At some point during each auction, at Rubids' sole discretion, the auction will be locked and customers who have not placed bids on the auction will not be allowed to do so. Also, customers who have not placed bids on the auction within a certain period of time or have not placed a minimum number of bids, as determined by Rubids' sole discretion, will be prevented from placing further bids. Customers who have been "locked out" will still be allowed to utilize the Buy Now feature.

12.Dispute Resolution

BY AGREEING TO THESE TERMS & CONDITIONS, YOU AND RUBIDS EACH WAIVE THE RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION. FURTHER, YOU AGREE THAT ANY AND ALL DISPUTES, CLAIMS, AND CAUSES OF ACTION RELATING IN ANY WAY TO YOUR USE OF RUBIDS, INCLUDING YOUR USE PRIOR TO AGREEING TO THESE TERMS & CONDITIONS, OR TO ANY PRODUCTS SOLD BY RUBIDS WILL BE RESOLVED BY BINDING ARBITRATION, RATHER THAN IN COURT, EXCEPT THAT YOU MAY ASSERT CLAIMS IN SMALL CLAIMS COURT IF YOUR CLAIMS QUALIFY.

You agree that any and all claims, disputes, and causes of action between You and Rubids, including those relating to Your use of the Rubids website or these Terms & Conditions (each a "Dispute" and collectively, "Disputes"), shall be resolved as set forth in this section. Before initiating any formal Dispute resolution proceedings, You agree to negotiate with Rubids regarding any Disputes in good faith on an individual basis, and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class or representative proceeding. You may initiate these negotiations by sending a notice of the Dispute (the "Notice of Dispute") to Rubids in a manner specified in the "Notices" section below. If Rubids and You do not reach an agreement regarding a Dispute within 30 days following Rubids' receipt of the Notice of Dispute, Rubids and You agree to submit such Dispute to binding arbitration, on an individual basis, under the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes of the American Arbitration Association (the "AAA rules"). The AAA rules are available online at adr.org. The proceedings shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, and the award shall be final and binding, may be enforced in any court of competent jurisdiction, and shall not be subject to appeal.

During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by Rubids or You shall not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator determines the amount, if any, to which You or Rubids is entitled.

Rubids will pay the arbitration filing fee for Disputes involving less than $75,000, unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous. If the arbitrator finds that Your claim is frivolous or brought for an improper purpose then the payment of all fees will be governed by the AAA rules. In such case, You agree to reimburse Rubids for all monies previously disbursed by Rubids that are otherwise Your obligation to pay under the AAA rules. In addition, if You initiate an arbitration in which you seek more than $75,000 in damages, the payment of these fees will be governed by the AAA rules. For claims totaling less than $10,000, You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, or in person. Unless Rubids and You agree otherwise, any arbitration hearings will take place in the county where you live. Except as otherwise provided for herein, Rubids will pay all AAA filing, administration, and arbitrator fees for any arbitration initiated in accordance with the notice requirements above.

In the event of a finding in Your favor, Rubids agrees to pay Your attorney, if any, and reimburse any expenses, including expert witness fees and costs that Your attorney reasonably accrues for investigating, preparing, and pursuing Your claim in arbitration. If the arbitrator issues You an award that is greater than the value of Rubids' last written settlement offer made before an arbitrator was selected then Rubids will pay You the greater of the award or $10,000 and pay Your attorney twice the amount of attorney's fees and reimburse any reasonable expenses incurred by Your attorney related to Your representation. This right to attorneys' fees and expenses supplements any right to attorneys' fees and expenses You may have under applicable law. Thus, if You would be entitled to a larger amount under applicable law, this provision does not preclude the arbitrator from awarding You that amount. However, You may not recover duplicative awards of attorneys' fees or costs. Although under some laws Rubids may have a right to an award of attorneys' fees and expenses if it prevails in arbitration, Rubids agrees that it will not seek such an award.

The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party's individual claim. You and Rubids agree that each may bring claims against the other only in Your or its individual capacity and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class or representative proceeding. Further, unless both You and Rubids agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. If this specific provision is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this arbitration provision shall be null and void.

Notwithstanding any provision in this Agreement to the contrary, we agree that if Rubids makes any future change to this arbitration provision (other than a change to the Address provided in the "Notices" section below) You may reject any such change by sending us written notice within 30 days of the change to the Address provided in the "Notices" section below.

26.Provisions Relating to Specific Games

Poker

You hereby acknowledge that all bets placed by You in relation to multi-player poker games are bets placed with other users and not bets placed with or against the Company. The Company does not assume any risk whatsoever for bets placed between You and any other user of the Service. The Company does not under any circumstances either place or accept bets itself.

You may not occupy more than one position at a poker table at any given time, though You may occupy one position at several tables at any given time.

You understand and agree that all of our multi-player poker games are public and therefore may be reviewed and published by other players, either at the time of the game or thereafter.

We provide multi-player poker games so as to provide a platform for users to play poker and to bet with each other using the Software. In consideration of this service We charge either:

(a) a commission (known as a rake) which is calculated in accordance with the House Rules; or (b) a percentage of the "buy-in" fee for tournaments.

Collusion:

occurs when two or more players at a poker table attempt to gain an unfair advantage by sharing knowledge of their cards or other information. In cases of suspected collusion, the Company shall be entitled to freeze the implicated players' accounts pending investigation, and/or notify the proper authorities of the suspected activity. Any player who colludes or attempts to collude with any other player while using the Service may be permanently banned from using the Service or the Software or any other related services of the Company, their account may be terminated immediately and the Company shall be entitled to retain all monies that are reasonably determined to have been obtained as a result of collusion. We have developed and employ sophisticated proprietary technology intended to seek out and identify players acting in collusion. If the Company is informed during play about suspected collusive behavior, it may, in its sole discretion, terminate suspected players' access to the Service and/or block their accounts. No player shall have the right to require the Company to take any other steps against players suspected of collusion, cheating or any other form of fraud.

Chip-Dumping:

Chip-dumping occurs when any player deliberately loses a hand in order to transfer his chips to another player. In cases of suspected chip-dumping, the Company shall be entitled to freeze the implicated players' accounts pending investigation, and/or notify the proper authorities of the suspected activity. Any player who is involved in an act of chip-dumping or attempted chip-dumping while using the Service may be permanently banned from using the Services or the Software or any other related services of the Company and such player's account may be terminated immediately.

If your account is associated with poker fraud in any way - for example through Chip Dumping, or Collusion, We will be entitled to freeze your account pending investigation, and/or notify the proper authorities of the suspected activity, the outcome of which may result in the closure of all your accounts, You being barred from future use of the Services, and the forfeiture of funds reasonably determined to have been obtained as a result of such fraud.

PLEASE PRINT OFF AND RETAIN A HARD COPY OF THIS AGREEMENT FOR YOUR RECORDS.


27.Use of Shopping Cart/Card-Linked-Offer Services

As a Member of Rubids, you will be able to purchase certain products from certain Affiliate Stores using (a) the Rubids shopping cart service (the "Shopping Cart"), a free express online checkout service provided by an Rubids affiliate, or (b) the credit-card-linked offer service (the "CLO"; and with the Shopping Cart, each a "Service"), a method that will allow some of your offline purchases with certain Affiliate Stores to qualify for certain Rubids rewards. The Services are separate (a user can use the Shopping Cart without participating in CLO or vice versa), but we believe both aspects of the Service will enhance your overall shopping experience.

  1. License to the Service. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, Rubids grants you a limited, non-exclusive, and revocable license to access and use the Service. Rubids (or its affiliate) reserves the right to change, upgrade or discontinue the Service or any feature of the Service at any time, with or without notice.
  2. Merchandise Shipping, Exchange and Return Policies. A product purchased using the Service is covered by the applicable Affiliate Store's return, exchange and shipping policies. With respect to the Shopping Cart, while Rubids will obtain the shipping cost for you during the checkout process, these policies will not be available for review on the Rubids Site during the checkout process. They are, however, available on the respective Affiliate Store's own website should you wish to review them. With respect to CLO, transactions may be subject to the Affiliate Store's offline policies, which will not be available for review on the Rubids Site during the checkout process.
  3. Personal Information and Processing. By using the Service, certain information about you such as payment information and billing and shipping address is provided to Rubids in order to complete transactions with Affiliate Stores, and you authorize Rubids to process and complete payment transactions on your behalf. You also authorize Rubids and the Service to store such purchase information including, without limitation, your credit card number, for future purchases and transaction-matching purposes.
  4. Privacy, Security and Information Collection. As a condition of using the Service, you agree that Rubids has the right to collect, retain, and use, subject to and in accordance with the terms of its Privacy Policy, information collected in your use of the Service. Your credit card information will be encrypted and stored in the Services databases.
  5. Limitations on Liability. You agree that neither Rubids nor the Service is responsible or liable for the availability, accuracy, content, reliability or advertising of the merchandise or services of Affiliate Store sites. This Agreement and the corresponding Privacy Policy only apply when you are on the Site. Once you link to an Affiliate Store's website, you should read and understand that website's terms of use and privacy statement before disclosing any personal information. In addition to the limitations of liability set forth in the Agreement below, to the extent allowed by law, the total liability of Rubids or the Service to you for any damages related to your use of the Service, regardless of reason, will not exceed US$50.
  6. Electronic Communications. We may communicate with you regarding the Service by electronic communications using information you provided during the registration process. You agree that we may communicate with you by means of electronic communications regarding these Terms of Use or the Service, payment and credit card information, and any other matter relating to your use of the Service. Termination of Service. Rubids reserves the right, at any time, to modify or discontinue offering the Service in its sole discretion. If you are dissatisfied with any aspect of the Service at any time, your sole and exclusive remedy is to cease using the Service and/or provide Member comments to Rubids. You agree that Rubids will not be liable to you or to any third party for any modification, suspension, or termination of the Service.
It was great experience of Rubids, especially penny auction. I hope the Rubids would expand more stores and deals available for the customers. Thanks.
