1. Membership Eligibility and Overview
1.1. The My Origins Rewards US Loyalty Program (“Program”) is offered at the sole discretion of Origins Natural Resources Inc. (“Origins,”“we,”“our” or “us”). The Program is available to individuals for their personal use only and is limited to one account per individual. Corporations, associations or other groups may not participate in the Program. Individuals who are legal residents of the United States (including its territories and possessions) and at least 18 years or older and who provide and maintain a valid email address are eligible to become members. Employees of Origins are eligible to participate in the Program. Individuals employed by our business partners or vendors are eligible for membership for personal use only but may be excluded from certain benefits of the Program. The Program may not be used for any business or commercial purpose and we may refuse to create an account for any reason.
1.3. The Program is only available in Origins owned and operated freestanding retail stores in the United States (excluding Massachusetts) (each, an “Origins Retail Store” and collectively, “Origins Retail Stores”) and on origins.com (the “Site”) within the United States.
2. Program Enrollment
2.1. Eligible individuals may enroll in the Program through one of the following options: 2.1.1 Visit Site and follow the Program prompts to register for the Program. 2.1.2. Visit an Origins Retail Store and tell a store associate you would like to register for the Program.
2.2. You are required to provide your first name, last name and email address in order to enroll. If you enroll in-store, you will also have to provide a zip code. If you enroll on the Site, you will also have to create a password in order to enroll. For both online and in-store you may also have the opportunity to provide us with your birthday and mobile, but this information is optional. If you enroll in-store, you will need to create an account on the Site, using the same email address you provided at sign-up, in order to access certain Program benefits and rewards. You are solely responsible for maintaining the accuracy of your account information and for updating it as required. You may update your personal information on the Site or by informing a store associate.
2.3. Only one Program account may be associated with a single member and a single email address. In the event of a dispute over the identity of the member enrolled in the Program, the member will be deemed to be the authorized account holder of the email address submitted at the time of enrollment. For purposes of these Terms, the "authorized account holder" is the natural person who is assigned to the submitted email address by an internet provider, online service provider, or other organization (e.g., business, educational institution, etc.) that is responsible for assigning email addresses for the domain associated with the submitted email address.
3. How the Program Works and Program Benefits
3.1. The Program is a way in which we reward and thank our loyal customers for purchasing our products and engaging with our brand. You are able to earn points and unlock Program loyalty tiers by making eligible purchases or taking certain other Program actions. Purchases at Origins Retail Stores and the Site qualify for the Program. For your purchase to qualify for the Program, you must be enrolled in the Program and (a) be signed into your online account at the time of purchase on the Site; or (b) provide your Program member identification (that is, the email address you registered under the Program) when making your purchase at an Origins Retail Store. If you are not a Program member, your qualifying purchase made at an Origins Retail Store may still earn you Program points, if (1) you provided an email address at the time of purchase; and (2) you enroll at the Site using that email address by 11:59pm Eastern Time on the same day of purchase. Once you reach and unlock a certain loyalty tier or earn a certain number of points, you may be eligible for certain benefits and rewards applicable to that tier or number of points, which benefits may change from time to time and may be offered on a limited basis. Eligible purchases and other opportunities to earn points and reach Program loyalty tiers will be posted on the Site or may be published through other media (e.g., in-store, in marketing communications, social media, etc.). Visit our FAQs to learn more about earning points and reaching Program tiers.
3.2. Purchases made in Origins Retail Stores and on the Site are eligible for the Program. Purchases made in department stores, specialty stores, Origins retail stores in Massachusetts, affiliates not solely owned and operated by Origins, or in Origins retail stores outside of the United States are not eligible for the Program.
3.3. Your accumulated points are valid in your Program account for one year from your Program "anniversary date." This is the anniversary of the date you enrolled in the Program and occurs on a 12-month cycle. On your anniversary date each year, your points reset to zero (0) and you start accumulating new points benefits and unlocking new rewards. Your status in a particular tier is good for the year in which you qualify for that tier and the following full year. After that, you’ll need to earn enough points to qualify for that tier each year. Each year that you do not earn enough points to keep your tier level, you will drop down one level.
3.4. Neither accounts nor Program rewards, benefits and points may be shared or combined. Only the member paying for the products may accumulate rewards, benefits and points. Members will not receive rewards, benefits and points on purchases which are reimbursed by corporations or other organizations ineligible to participate in the Program. We reserve the right to monitor the number of accounts per household and refuse, merge or close additional or duplicate accounts at any time.
3.5. Rewards, benefits and points earned through the Program have no cash value, are non-transferable, and you have no property rights in or to rewards or other Program benefits. Purchase balances, tier status, and/or points credited to your Program account will be decreased or reversed, as applicable, if part or all of the purchase is returned or cancelled or if the credit is obtained through fraudulent or other activity that violates these Terms, as determined by us in our sole discretion. The sale, barter, transfer, or assignment of any rewards or benefits offered through the Program other than by us, is expressly prohibited. Any applicable tax liabilities resulting from rewards earned under the Program are the responsibility of the member.
3.6. Rewards cannot be exchanged or returned for points, another product or service or a monetary refund.
3.7. The products and services available through the Program and any samples that we may provide to you are for personal use only. You may not sell or resell any of the products, services, or samples you purchase or otherwise receive from us. We reserve the right, without notice, to cancel or reduce the quantity of any order to be filled and/or any products or services to be provided to you that we believe, in our sole discretion, may result in the violation of our Terms.
3.8. To be eligible for points, purchase must be made on qualifying Origins products. Qualifying purchases include merchandise, and exclude gift cards, sales tax, state fees, shipping charges, delivery charges or other excluded charges specified by us from time-to-time. Although members do not earn points on gift card purchases, members do earn points when redeeming a gift card for a qualifying Origins purchase, provided that you identify yourself as a loyalty member at the time of purchase.
3.9. We are not responsible for rewards, benefits and/or points lost or redeemed due to fraudulent activity by you or any third party. We are not responsible for rewards that are lost, stolen or otherwise destroyed.
3.10. We reserve the right to change Program benefits, how you reach each Program tier, how you earn points and how we evaluate and reward your eligible purchases and/or other Program activity. We reserve the right to place limits on the number of purchases or activities that are eligible for the Program and/or for any given tier or point level, the number or types of rewards or benefits you may receive or earn in any given tier or at any given point level, in a given time period or for the duration of the Program, and/or any combination thereof.
3.11. If you have concerns that a purchase or other activity was not properly applied to your account, you should contact Origins Customer Service at OriginsOnlineService@origins.com. Your email must specify your name, address, phone number, and email address associated with the Program, the date of the Program activity, and the issue(s) you encountered. This email must be sent no more than thirty (30) days after the date the purchase or other Program activity took place. We are not responsible for late notifications about purchases or other Program activities not being credited to an account.
3.12. Product rewards can only be redeemed with a purchase on the Site.
3.13 A Program participant can choose to redeem 50 points to help plant and care for one tree. For every 50 points redeemed to plant a tree, Origins will donate $1 USD to One Tree Planted, a U.S.-based nonprofit organization that plants trees around the world in support of global reforestation efforts. Through Origins global partnership with One Tree Planted, $1 USD = 1 tree planted and cared for.
4. Marketing Communications
4.1. By enrolling in the Program, you will be automatically subscribed to receive Program related emails, including Program marketing emails, and you consent to their receipt. We also may give you the option to opt-in to receive other marketing communications from us at the time of enrollment.
5. Termination and Modification
5.1. The Program and its benefits are offered at our sole discretion. We may, in our discretion, cancel, modify, restrict or terminate these Terms, our FAQs, and/or the Program or any aspect or feature of the Program at any time without prior notice, even though such changes may affect the value of rewards or benefits already accumulated or earned and/or the ability to redeem accumulated rewards or benefits.
5.2. We reserve the right, at any time, in our sole discretion, to: (1) exclude you from participation in the Program; (2) discontinue your participation in the Program; and/or (3) suspend or audit your membership account for any amount of time without prior notice. Any suspected abuse of the Program, failure to follow any Program Terms, no purchase activity for 12 months or more, illegal activity, fraud, misrepresentation or other conduct inconsistent with these Terms and/or detrimental to us or our interests, including without limitation, any suspected illegal, fraudulent other unauthorized use of any Program rewards, points, and/or benefits, may result in the revocation of your membership and make you ineligible for further participation in the Program. If your membership is revoked, any rewards or benefits in your account will automatically expire and your access to the Program and features will automatically terminate in our sole discretion. If we suspect illegal activity, fraud, misrepresentation, abuse or violation of these Terms, we also have the right to take appropriate legal action, in our sole discretion.
5.3. If you decide you no longer want to be a part of the Program, you may cancel your membership at any time by opting-out in your account on the Site, by informing a store associate at Origins Retail Stores, or by calling 1-800-ORIGINS. If you cancel your membership, your tier status and any points, rewards or benefits in your account will automatically expire.
