Terms and Conditions of Use

BY USING PEPPER, YOU AGREE TO THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS AND ALL POLICIES ON THIS WEB SITE; IF YOU DO NOT AGREE, PLEASE DO NOT USE THE WEBSITE


Before buying a incentive you must register and open an account with us. We cannot issue a incentive to you without knowing vital information about you, specifically, your identity, your payment method and details, and your contact information.


The information on this legal notice may be updated / revised / edited without notice at any time. As such, we recommend that you review this information periodically to ensure that you are up-to-date with our legal disclaimers and all terms & conditions, as they are binding and address vital rules, regulations and stipulations. Certain provisions of this legal notice may be superseded by explicitly designated legal notices or terms located on particular pages on the Website.


1. About Us
Our “Website” and all related microsites are operated by Pepper. We are registered and incorporated Federally in Canada. We negotiate unique offers (hereafter known as “incentives”) with various suppliers of products and/or services (hereafter referred to as “Vendors”) at significant discounts, and offer those incentives to our community of buyers.

The way we see it, we bridge the gap between buyers and sellers, helping consumers get a better incentive, driving business growth for our Vendors, and making the world a more prosperous and affordable place to live!


2. Purchasing incentives
Our team continuously negotiates offered products and services which are referred to in these Terms and Conditions as incentives with various suppliers of goods and services on behalf of our customers. The incentives are conditional on certain requirements being met and specific terms and conditions related to them, which will be described in relation to any specific incentive on our Website and on the corresponding incentive. It is a condition (which we may at our discretion waive) that a certain minimum number of buyers, which we call the “Tipping Point”, offer to buy incentives in respect of the goods or services offered as part of the incentive becoming immediately available for purchase (hereafter known as “incentive is live”).

If the Tipping Point in relation to the incentive is reached, we shall - upon receipt of payment from you - issue a incentive to you as per the incentive you paid for. If potential buyers of the incentive in respect of a incentive are unable to complete their purchase of a incentive due to various reasons including but not limited to the incentive not reaching the Tipping Point, and ensuring that all other Pepper policies, including the Refunds and Shipping policies, are adhered to. Pepper will ensure that all funds related to the incomplete purchase of a Pepper incentive be not charged until the minimum number of purchases has been reached However, Pepper has no obligation to ensure the continuation of the offer should the Tipping Point not be reached and no incentives for that incentive will be issued.


3. The Vendors
You should know that we are not the supplier of the goods and/or services that are offered as a Pepper incentive. All of these products and/or services are delivered by the Vendor, on whose behalf we issue the incentives and who is ultimately responsible for ensuring the proper tracking of redeemed incentives by accessing the Vendor’s section of the web site. For each posted incentive, the Vendor has agreed to ensure timely update of all redeemed incentives (within 24 hours of redemption) that were purchased from this Website, provided that the Tipping Point was reached. Failure to comply with the timely update clause by the Vendor will result in the Vendor encumbering all losses associated with ensuing illegitimate actions of incentive holders.


4. Your Interactions with Us
By placing an order through our web site, you confirm that:
  • a. You are legally capable of entering into binding contracts, and agree to the terms and conditions outlined on the particular incentive;
  • b. You are at least 18 years old (or age of majority within the jurisdiction in which you reside);
  • c. You grant us an irrevocable non-exclusive license to use for any purpose any content you post on our web site or otherwise communicated to us via any medium.

5. Timely Update
The Vendor shall be responsible for ensuring the incentive and the goods and/or services provided thereunder comply with all applicable laws.

Pepper's obligations under these Terms and Conditions are solely to act as an intermediary, which issues incentives for a incentive that Buyers redeem at the specified Vendor. Pepper does not deliver such products and/or services nor is it responsible for any actions and/or damages that ensue as a result due to the delivery (or the lack thereof) of the products and/or services by the Vendor. The Vendor is solely responsible for supplying such products and/or services and ensuring that all redeemed incentives in respect of the product and/or service are updated within a 24 hours of redemption. Failure to update redeemed incentives within 24 hours of redemption will result in all ensuing potential losses being encumbered by the Vendor.

You agree to indemnify and hold Pepper, its officers, directors, shareholders, predecessors, successors in interest, employees, agents, subsidiaries and affiliates, harmless from any demands, loss, liability, claims or expenses (including attorneys’ fees), made against Pepper by you, or any third party due to or arising out of or in connection with your use of the Website, the purchased incentive, and/or the provision/delivery of products and/or services by the Vendor to the maximum extent permissible by law. Neither Pepper nor its officers, employees or Affiliates may be held liable whether in relation to contract, warranty, tort (including negligence), product liability, tax matters or any other form of liability for any claim, damage or loss, arising from or relating to the provision of all or any goods or services sold or agreed to be supplied pursuant to the incentive.

We may provide links on our Website to the websites of other companies, whether affiliated with us or not. We cannot give any undertaking, that products you purchase from third party sellers, or from companies to whose website we have provided a link on our Website, will be of satisfactory quality, and any such warranties are disclaimed by us absolutely. This disclaimer does not affect your statutory rights against the third party seller(s) and/or Vendor(s). As part of orderly delivery of service, we may disclose your customer information related to the incentive that you have purchased for the incentive to the Vendor.


6. Buyer’s Rights
If you are contracting as a Buyer, you may cancel a incentive at any time within ten working days, beginning on the day after which you received the incentive (provided that you have not redeemed the incentive for the goods and services under the incentive in that time). When you indicate your intention to cancel (email/site/phone call), you will receive a full refund of the price paid for the incentive in accordance with our Refund Policy. To cancel a incentive, you must inform us in writing via e-mail. When your incentive is cancelled, you must also destroy the incentive with the cancelled unique identifying number held electronically or in printed form. This provision does not affect your statutory rights.


7. Price Determination and Payment Processing
In cases where there is a pricing error in relation to the incentive which could have reasonably been recognized by you as a mis-pricing then we have the right to cancel any incentive issued in respect of the incentive and issue to you a full refund in respect of the same.

Payment for all incentives and/or incentives may be made only by a major credit card. When you offer to buy a incentive, we will pre-authorize your credit card but will only charge your credit card when the incentive time runs out and the incentive is no longer available on the site.


8. Our Refund Policy
We guarantee that if you have any problems with a incentive you bought from our site we will give you a full refund within 10 days of purchasing the incentive, and a full Pepper credit within 30 days of the purchase.
