Loyalty Program Terms and Conditions
SK Club and SK Club Pro Loyalty Program Terms and Conditions
These terms and conditions govern the overall SK Club Loyalty Program. The SK Club Loyalty Program consists of both a basic free tier membership (“SK Club”), and a premium paid membership tier (“SK Pro Club”) (collectively, the “Program”) brought to you by SK Hand Tool, LLC (collectively “we,” “us,” “our,” “ours,” or, “SK Hand Tools”). Your participation or use of any membership or related benefits in the Program (“Membership”) at any time subjects the user (“you,” “your,” “yours,” “Member”) to the provisions of these terms and conditions, as amended from time to time.
1. MEMBERSHIP AND GENERAL TERMS/CONDITIONS
(a) Members of the Program agree to these terms and conditions (this “Agreement”), as published and subject to periodic update at Loyalty-Program-Terms-and-Conditions. This Agreement replaces all previously published information, and Members have the responsibility to check for any updates. If this Agreement is updated, any changes will apply to all Members, including Members enrolled before SK Hand Tools posts the updated text, except as may be prohibited by law. SK Hand Tools may change this Agreement, in whole or in part, at any time without notice, even though changes may affect rewards and benefits earned before such changes.
(b) (b) By enrolling in the Program, Members agree to receive advertising, marketing materials and other Program communications. Members will be asked to provide a valid email address, mailing address, name, and other contact information and preferences in order to receive benefits and reward notifications. We may request proof of identification and age to verify (A) your eligibility for Program Membership, (B) Membership participation, and (C) your compliance with this Agreement. We expect Members to submit and maintain accurate and current user information in connection with their Memberships. Periodically we will utilize the National Change of Address (NCOA) system to update the mailing addresses of accounts in our database through information provided by the United States Postal Service. Members can change their account information by (i) updating Member profile data through an authenticated sktools.com account or (ii) calling Member Services toll free at 1-800-822-5575. We cannot assume any, and disclaim all, liability for correspondence, mail or e-mail that is lost, delayed or misdirected.
(c) (d) Membership accounts, benefits, coupons, special offers, and rewards (i) are nontransferable, except to a new membership account for the same member in the case of a lost or stolen account number, (ii) have no cash value and are not gift cards or gift certificates, (iii) may not be offered for resale, and (iv) are not redeemable for cash under any circumstance unless required by law. Accumulated coupons, rewards and special offers do not constitute property of the Member, nor are accumulated coupons, rewards and special offers transferable by the Member upon death, as part of a domestic relations matter or otherwise. Coupons, rewards, special offers, tier cost, and other benefits of the Program may be taxable to the Member where required by law. SK Bucks™ may not be used toward the purchase of SK Hand Tool gift certificates or membership fees.
(e) (e) Entities or persons using the Program for profit are not eligible to become or remain Members or to accumulate rewards. Membership is intended for individual use only, and is not available to organizations, legal entities or groups such as, but not limited to businesses, churches, daycare, non-profits, etc. Abuse of the Program, including failure to follow this Agreement, may result in cancellation of the Member’s Account, future disqualification from participation and forfeiture of all coupons, SK Bucks™, rewards and special offers accrued, in addition to other remedies available to us under applicable law. In connection with the enforcement of any provision of this Agreement governing the Program, SK Hand Tools reserves the right to take appropriate legal action as it deems necessary and will be entitled to recover damages, attorneys’ fees and court costs as allowed by applicable law.
(f) (f) Members have the right to cancel their Membership at any time. If an SK Pro Club Membership Program Member cancels his/her Membership during the first thirty (30) days of the initial, or any renewal term, he or she will be entitled to a full refund of the Membership fee for the Membership term during which such cancellation occurs, but only if such Member has not gained benefit from the tier during such thirty (30) day period. No refunds will be available for cancellation by Member after such thirty (30) day period or in the event of fraudulent behavior on the part of Member. If an SK Premium Membership Program Member cancels his/her Membership, such Member may elect to move to the no-fee tier SK Club with a coupon for any earned SK Bucks under the SK Pro Club membership or be removed from the Program in its entirety.
Members have a right to cancel by:
(i). E-mailing: email@example.com or
(ii) Calling Member Services at 1-800-822-5575 or 1-800-U-CALL-SK.
SK Hand Tools reserves the right to suspend or terminate a Membership, including any associated accounts, without notice, for any reason in our sole discretion, including, without limitation, violation of this Agreement or fraudulent behavior by a Member. In the event of any such termination by SK Hand Tools, existing rewards (including coupons and SK Bucks) will be forfeited. Examples of fraudulent behavior that may result in Membership cancellation include, but are not limited to (1) making purchases and then refunding in an attempt to inflate spending or transactions on a Member’s account and (2) posting Member directed promotional offers or coupons, or an account number on websites or reproducing for use by third parties or public websites. We may terminate or alter any or all of the benefits available under the Program at any time with or without notice. In the event of our termination of the Program, at our election we may maintain Membership benefits until expiration of special offers.
Memberships may be closed and/or coupons or SK Bucks™ reverted due to any type of computer or technical issues that may arise. This would include any type of electronic malfunctions or human error on behalf of SK Hand Tools employees and agents. SK Hand Tools will, to the best of its ability, attempt to later fix any accounts that were closed due to any of these reasons and reapply any outstanding SK Bucks or coupons existing at the time the issue arose.
Members may be provided with the ability to use usernames, passwords, or other codes or devices to gain access to restricted portions of the Member website at sktools.com. Each Member has the responsibility for the use of his/her own password and username to gain access to the Program website page.
