Betterment Cash Back Rewards Powered by DOSH Terms of Service and DOSH Privacy Policy

Last Updated: November 18, 2020

BETTERMENT CASH BACK REWARDS POWERED BY DOSH TERMS OF SERVICE

Betterment Financial, LLC (“Betterment”) uses the DOSH Holdings, Inc. (“DOSH,” “our,” “we”) cash-back platform to manage the Betterment cash back rewards Powered by DOSH® program (the “Program”). DOSH is a third party that is not affiliated with nbkc bank (“nbkc”) or Betterment. By participating in the Program, you agree that DOSH may create a wallet for you on its platform in order for you to earn and redeem rewards based on qualifying transactions with participating merchants (the “Services”). These Betterment Cash Back Rewards Powered by DOSH Terms of Service (the “DOSH Terms”) govern your use of the DOSH platform. You may opt out of this Program at any time by emailing Betterment customer support at cashback@betterment.com.

1. YOUR ACCEPTANCE OF THESE BETTERMENT CASH BACK REWARDS POWERED BY DOSH TERMS OF SERVICE

By accessing or using the Services in any way or by clicking to agree to these DOSH Terms (or any agreement that has incorporated these DOSH Terms) when that option is made available to you, you agree to be bound by these DOSH Terms and the DOSH Privacy Policy which is incorporated by this reference into these DOSH Terms. If you do not agree to all the DOSH Terms, do not access or use the Services. You may opt-out of cash back rewards at any time by emailing Betterment customer support at cashback@betterment.com.

2. THE SERVICES

The purpose of the Services is to help you save money with minimal effort by rewarding you for certain qualifying purchases and other activities. The DOSH Privacy Policy governs our collection, use, storage, and disclosure of user information. DOSH is in no way affiliated with the merchants that extend offers to you through the Program. Subject to these DOSH Terms, we will automatically provide rewards to you when you purchase qualifying goods or services at participating merchants with your eligible Betterment Visa Debit Card. DOSH, in its sole discretion, establishes the terms and conditions for each qualifying purchase or action and determines whether you have satisfied such terms and conditions to receive the associated rewards. The following transaction types are never eligible to receive rewards:

    ATM transactions;
    In-store cash withdrawals or cash back;
    Any transactions identified by a merchant as not being eligible to receive rewards;

Upon the closure of your Betterment Checking Account or Betterment Visa® Debit Card, rewards on any transactions that are unsettled or unpaid shall be cancelled. All offers made available to you are temporary and may become unavailable without notice.

Without limiting any of the other terms of these DOSH Terms, if you return, charge back, cancel, dispute, or otherwise request a refund for a qualifying purchase for which you have already received rewards, we reserve the right to remove any rewards from the Betterment Checking Account linked to your eligible Betterment Visa Debit Card (your “cash back rewards Account”) or withhold future cash back rewards Powered by DOSH to offset any such amount.

Any cash back rewards that you earn will be transferred to your cash back rewards Account. You are solely responsible for verifying the accuracy and completeness of any rewards transferred to your cash back rewards Account. All rewards received are exclusive of any applicable withholding, sales, use, excise, value added, or other taxes. You acknowledge and agree that you are responsible for determining, paying, withholding, filing, and reporting all taxes, duties, and other governmental assessments associated with your activity in connection with the Services. We are not responsible for determining whether you owe taxes in connection with your access to or use of the Services or for collecting, reporting, or remitting taxes arising from your access to or use of the Services, except for our own income taxes.

In addition to your other representations and warranties in these DOSH Terms, you represent and warrant that you will not access or use the Services to engage in any illegal, fraudulent, or other illicit activity.

3. OWNERSHIP AND PROPRIETARY RIGHTS IN THE SERVICES

You acknowledge and agree that the Services are protected by applicable copyright, patent, trademark, and other intellectual property laws. All words and logos displayed in connection with the Services that are marked by the ™ or ® symbols are trademarks and service marks of DOSH and/or their respective owners.
