THESE MERCHANT TERMS & CONDITIONS (GUILDFORD REWARDS) (THESE “MERCHANT TERMS” OR THIS “AGREEMENT”) ARE ENTERED INTO FOR GOOD AND VALUABLE CONSIDERATION AND ARE BINDING AND ENFORCEABLE BETWEEN YOU (“YOU”, “YOUR” OR “MERCHANT”) AND PAYWITH WORLDWIDE INC., A DELAWARE CORPORATION, (“PAYWITH”, “WE”, “US” OR “OUR”). “YOU”, “YOUR” OR “MERCHANT” REFERS TO THE ENTITY OR ORGANIZATION THAT SIGNS A DOCUMENT, OR CLICKS A BOX ONLINE INDICATING AGREEMENT TO THESE MERCHANT TERMS OR USES THE SERVICES DESCRIBED IN THIS AGREEMENT AND ANY OFFER FORM OR OTHER ADDENDUM TO THIS AGREEMENT. BY SIGNING A DOCUMENT, OR CLICKING A BOX ONLINE INDICATING AGREEMENT TO THESE MERCHANT TERMS OR BY USING THE SERVICES DESCRIBED IN THIS AGREEMENT, YOU ARE ACCEPTING AND AGREEING TO BE BOUND BY THIS AGREEMENT AND ANY APPLICABLE OFFER FORM AND ADDENDUM. YOU SHALL ALSO INFORM ALL USERS OF THE SERVICES OF THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THIS AGREEMENT AND ANY APPLICABLE OFFER FORM AND ADDENDUM.
This Agreement incorporates by reference each Offer Form and Addendum which you have accepted or shall accept by signing or clicking a box online indicating your acceptance. It is your responsibility to read and ensure you understand this Agreement and each applicable Offer Form and Addendum. To the extent that any applicable Offer Form or Addendum conflicts with this Agreement, the Offer Form or Addendum associated with the applicable Service govern with respect to such Service.
a) “Applicable Law” means any applicable international, federal, state, or local statute, regulation, bylaw or ordinance, expressly including without limitation those relating to individual privacy or the distribution of email and other one-to-one digital messages.
b) “Merchant Data” means all data and other information uploaded by you to the Merchant Portal or otherwise provided by you to us in connection with the Services.
c) “Merchant Offer” means a discount, incentive, reward or credit offered by you to a Cardholder by way of email, SMS, push or in-app notification.
d) “Network” means MasterCard International Incorporated, Visa Inc., Cirrus, Plus and/or any other electronic payment network for transmitting items and settlement thereof.
e) “Cardholder Application” means an SDK or native mobile software application or web- based application which, amongst other things, allows a Cardholder to create an account linked to their Card and to receive Merchant Offers.
f) “Card” means a gift, rewards, points, debit, credit, prepaid or other payment card in physical or virtual form which has the functionality to allow a card holder to download a Cardholder Application and create an account linked to such card, and includes a Guildford Rewards Card.

h) “Cardholder” the holder of a Card.
i) “Services” means the programs and services provided by us to you pursuant to this
Agreement and any applicable Offer Form or Addendum to this Agreement.
The provision of the Services relies on the use by your customers of Cards. The use of Cards relies on existing credit card payment processing infrastructure. As a result, our provision of the Services requires that you maintain a valid and functioning merchant account (“Merchant Account”) and a payment processing system (“Payment Processing System”) on the Network to accept payment from customers for goods or services.
2) Guildford Rewards Program
Participation in the Guildford Rewards Program allows you to market your goods and services to holders of Guildford Rewards Cards by making a Merchant Offer. A Merchant Offer enables Guildford Rewards Cardholders to earn Guildford Rewards Dollars when they purchase your goods and services in an eligible transaction. “Guildford Rewards Dollars” are redeemable prior to their stated expiry date for their stated value at any merchant in Guildford Town Centre.
Your Payment Processing System must allow for partial authorizations of Guildford Rewards Card transactions and you must be able to confirm to us that this is the case in order for you to be able to make a Merchant Offer in the Guildford Rewards Program.
To make a Merchant Offer, you must complete an Offer Form for the Guildford Rewards Program setting out the amount of Guildford Rewards Dollars available to be earned on eligible transactions as well as determining which conditions apply to the Merchant Offer. While you have an active Merchant Offer, we will provide you with our regular data and analytics reports relating to your Merchant Offer.
Merchant Offers set out in any Offer Form accepted by you will be available for redemption by eligible Guildford Rewards Cardholders for Guildford Rewards Dollars when they purchase your products or services at your store in Guildford Town Centre subject to the terms set out in any Offer Form and these Merchant Terms. Merchant Offers initiated by you will be advertised to Guildford Rewards Cardholders within the Cardholder Application and by such other means as we determine from time to time.
You will pay us an amount equal to the amount of all Guildford Rewards Dollars earned by Cardholders on redemption of Merchant Offers initiated by you. You will also pay us any fees or commissions set out in any Offer Form accepted by you. All payments will be made in accordance with Section (9).
By manually or electronically signing an Offer Form, or by clicking a box online indicating your acceptance of an Offer Form, you agree to be bound by and honour the terms of the Merchant Offer set out in the Offer Form, including any payment terms set out in the Offer Form, and these Merchant Terms. The Guildford Rewards Program is a “Marketing Program” as such term is used in this Agreement.
The Guildford Rewards Card is administered by PayWith and EML Payments LLC, USA (“EML”) and you acknowledge that EML may rely on and enforce the provisions of this Agreement as it pertains to the Guildford Rewards Program. All inquiries and Merchant support requests relating to the Guildford Rewards Program shall be directed to EML by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephone at 1- 844-806-8733.

The group of Target Cardholders will be defined in the applicable Marketing Program Addendum (defined below).
