Privacy and your Personal Information

For information about Honey’s privacy and data protection practices, please read Honey’s Privacy Policy found at www.joinhoney.com/privacy. Our privacy policy explains how Honey collects, uses and shares your information that you provide when you access the Service. By using the Service, you consent to Honey’s collection, use, and sharing of your information as set forth in our privacy policy.

Description of the Service

As part of the Service, we provide you with a suite of tools that allows Users to locate and obtain deals, coupons, exclusive offers, pricing information, product, and other information to help make informed purchase decisions at attractive prices. We also allow you to make purchases from merchants while you are using the Honey Mobile App. Further details about the Honey Mobile App are described below. The Service also includes our Honey Gold and any other offerings described below.

For Members who choose to enroll in Honey Pay, please note that Honey Pay is further subject to the Honey Pay Terms of Service as well as the terms and policies of Honey Pay’s service providers.

The Service is provided to you by Honey as a free service. We work on your behalf with the aim of locating the best publicly available offers and negotiating exclusive offers that are better than any publicly available deal. We make money to sustain the service when you purchase or engage with these offers.

Honey Mobile App and Third-Party Merchant Purchases

The Honey Mobile App is a mobile app that allows you to view information about products listed for sale by third-party merchants online, find exclusive offers from those products, track pricing information, and purchase products from those third-party merchants while within the Honey Mobile App.

All products you purchase from a third-party merchant linked from the Honey Website or through the Mobile App are: (a) priced by the applicable third-party merchant (including but not limited to whether such prices include applicable local, state, or federal taxes, and any additional fees, such as shipping and handling); and (b) fulfilled, shipped, and otherwise serviced (including but not limited to the processing of returns, refunds, and cancellations) by the applicable third-party merchant and not by Honey. Honey is not a re-seller or distributor of any products of third-party merchants displayed within the Honey Website or Mobile App.

You agree that your purchase from a third-party merchant linked from the Honey Website or within the Mobile App is subject to the merchant’s own terms and conditions applicable to such purchase. The Honey Mobile App will present you those merchant terms and conditions prior to making your purchase, and you can also access them from within the legal page of your account section of the Honey Mobile App. You agree that Honey is in no way responsible or liable to you for any products you purchase from a merchant linked from the Honey Website or within the Mobile App, including for any product liability claim, improper charges, delivery failures, pricing errors, or inaccurate product descriptions.

When you purchase products within the Honey Mobile App, you agree to pay the price for such products as set forth in the Honey Mobile App, and all shipping and handling charges and all applicable taxes in connection with your purchase (the “Full Purchase Amount”).

Making a purchase within the Honey Mobile App then involves certain steps that we want to make sure you understand. When you make a purchase within the Honey Mobile App, you authorize Honey and its service providers to take the steps outlined below:

  1. When you first make a purchase within the Honey Mobile App, Honey’s third-party payment processors will issue a temporary authorization charge (also known as a pre-auth hold) on the payment card that you provided for the purchase. We do this to verify your payment information, and this authorization charge will be released following successful completion of your payment transaction.
  2. Next, to fulfill your purchase Honey’s third-party service provider will create a temporary single-use payment card (a “Single-Use Card”) that is linked to your name and your shipping and billing information. The original payment card that you provided for the purchase will then be charged the Full Purchase Amount by Honey’s third-party service providers, and this charged amount will be used to fund the Single-Use Card.
  3. Finally, the Single-Use Card will be used to purchase the product(s) that you have selected to purchase in step #1 above, from each of the applicable third-party merchant(s). This Single-Use Card is used to facilitate a single transaction, including any corresponding refund, and is not used for any other purpose.

Please note that, when you make a purchase using the Honey Mobile App, or another Honey product or service, your payment card information remains secured through our PCI Level 1 payment processor, Braintree (a PayPal service) (Terms and Privacy Policy available here [https://www.braintreepayments.com/legal]).

When you make a purchase within the Honey Mobile App, or another Honey product or service, you represent and warrant that you have the legal right to use the payment method you provide to us, including, without limitation, any credit card you provide when making a transaction. Please note that accelerated or other rewards (for example, 2x points, 5% back) on certain purchases, including those that are available as a result of a special offer, may not be available. See your applicable issuer program terms and conditions for more details. Third-party gift cards made available for purchase or redemption may be subject to further terms and conditions by the merchant and/or gift card provider, which you can access during the checkout process and later in your confirmation email. Gift cards and card balances are maintained by the card provider, and not by Honey.

We reserve the right, with or without prior notice and in our sole and complete discretion, to refuse to allow any user to purchase any products within the Honey Mobile App, or another Honey product or service. You acknowledge and agree that Honey is not liable or otherwise responsible for any breaches of credit card or debit card security or privacy by any third-party merchants.

If you are unhappy with your product purchase, if you wish to return your product, if you ordered a product and it has not arrived, or if you have another customer service inquiry regarding your purchased product, you will need to contact the specific merchant of that product to address such an inquiry. The Honey Mobile App may include functionality that allows you to directly find the merchant’s contact information and return information in order to resolve such inquiry.

While we attempt to be as accurate as we can in our descriptions for the products shown within the Honey Website and Mobile App, we do not warrant that such product descriptions or related merchant information or terms shown within the Honey Website and Mobile App are accurate, complete, reliable, current, or error-free. The inclusion of any products within the Honey Website or Mobile App at a particular time does not imply or warrant that these products will be available at any other time.

When you make a purchase within the Honey Mobile App from a third-party merchant, the Honey Mobile App will also forward to your email that you have registered to your Honey account, certain transactional emails about your purchases from that merchant, such as purchase confirmations and shipping notifications. You can check all emails and other notifications sent from a merchant related to your purchase from within your account profile section of the Honey Mobile App. You agree that Honey is in no way liable to you for any emails or other notifications that you fail to receive from the Honey Mobile App or that are not directly forwarded to your personal email address. In some cases, Honey may, at its sole discretion, communicate with the merchant directly to attempt to resolve issues with the purchase process.

You are responsible for providing the mobile device, wireless service plan, software, Internet connections, and/or other equipment or services that you need to download, install, and use the Honey Mobile App. We do not guarantee that the Honey Mobile App can be accessed and used on any particular mobile device or with any particular service plan. We do not guarantee that the Honey Mobile App will be available in, or that orders for products can be placed from, any particular geographic location.

Using the Honey Mobile App from Apple App Store and Google Play Store: The following terms and conditions apply to you if you are using the Honey Mobile App from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store. To the extent the other terms and conditions of the rest of this Agreement conflict with the terms and conditions of this paragraph, the terms and conditions in this paragraph apply, but solely with respect to your use of the Honey Mobile App from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store:

  • You acknowledge and agree that this Agreement is solely between you and Honey, not Apple or Google, and that Apple and Google have no responsibility for the Honey Mobile App or content thereof. You acknowledge that Apple and Google have no obligation whatsoever to furnish any maintenance and support services with respect to the Honey Mobile App.

  • You and Honey acknowledge that Apple and Google are not responsible for addressing any claims of yours or any third-party relating to the Honey Mobile App or your possession and/or use of the Honey Mobile App, including, but not limited to: (a) product liability claims, (b) any claim that the Honey Mobile App fails to conform to any applicable legal or regulatory requirement, and (c) claims arising under consumer protection or similar legislation.
  • You and Honey acknowledge that, in the event of any third-party claim that the Honey Mobile App or your possession and use of the Honey Mobile App infringes that third-party’s intellectual property rights, Honey, not Apple or Google, will be solely responsible for the investigation, defense, settlement and discharge of any such intellectual property infringement claim to the extent required by this Agreement.
  • You must comply with applicable third-party terms of agreement when using the Honey Mobile App.
  • You and Honey acknowledge and agree that Apple and Google, and their subsidiaries, as applicable, are third-party beneficiaries of this Agreement as its relates to your license and use of the Honey Mobile App, and that, upon your acceptance of this Agreement, Apple or Google (as applicable) will have the right (and will be deemed to have accepted the right) to enforce this Agreement against you as a third-party beneficiary thereof.

Account Information from Third Party Sites

With the Service, Members may direct Honey to interact with existing accounts they own and that are maintained online by third-party companies with which they have accounts (“Third Party Accounts”) such as Facebook or their accounts on the websites of specific merchants. Honey makes no effort to review the Third Party Accounts for any purpose, including but not limited to accuracy, legality or non- infringement. Honey is not responsible for the products and services offered by or on third-party sites. If your permission settings allow it, Honey may import information from your Third Party Accounts to help better offer the Services to you. Honey does not control the policies and practices of any third-party site or service, including any Third Party Accounts you connect to the Services.

Honey cannot always foresee or anticipate technical or other difficulties which may result in failure to obtain data or loss of data, personalization settings or other service interruptions. Honey cannot assume responsibility for the timeliness, accuracy, deletion, non-delivery or failure to store any user data, communications or personalization settings.

Honey Offers and Third-Party Links

Some parts of the Service are supported by sponsored links from third-party advertisers and the display of “Honey Offers,” which are product offers sponsored by third-parties that may be (subject to and in accordance with our privacy policy) custom matched to you based on information stored in the Service, queries made through the Service or other information. We sometimes use specially formatted links for which we receive a commission on resulting sales or clicks from affiliate partners (“Affiliate Links”).

If you click on a sponsored advertiser link, Honey Offer or Affiliate Link, you will be redirected to the site, of the third-party which offers the products (or a specific portion of the Services dedicated for the partner’s offerings, from which the third-party’s website will be accessible), and (subject to and in accordance with our privacy policy) your session may be tracked using cookies.

In connection with Honey Offers, the Service will provide links to other websites belonging to Honey advertisers and other third parties. Honey does not endorse, warrant or guarantee the products or services available through the sponsored advertiser link, Honey Offer or Affiliate Link, (or any other third -party products or services advertised, presented on or linked from any portion of our Services), whether or not sponsored. Honey is not an agent, distributor, re-seller, broker or otherwise responsible for such third-parties or the activities or policies of those websites or the products or services. available on them. Honey does not promise or guarantee that the product details, prices, coupon availability or other service terms, rates or rewards offered by any particular advertiser or other third-party via our Service are the best prices, terms or lowest rates available in the market.

When you access third-party websites via our Service, you accept that there are risks in doing so, and that Honey is not responsible for such risks. We encourage you to be aware when you leave the Service and to read the terms and conditions and privacy policy of each third-party website or service that you visit or utilize.

Honey has no control over, and assumes no responsibility for, the content, accuracy, privacy policies, or practices of or opinions expressed in any third-party websites or by any third-party that you interact with through the Services. In addition, Honey will not and cannot monitor, verify, censor or edit the content of any third-party site or service. By using the Services, you release and hold us harmless from any and all liability arising from your use of any third-party website or service.

If there is a dispute between participants on our Service, or between users and any third-party (including a merchant from whom you purchase a product within the Honey Mobile App), you agree that Honey is under no obligation to become involved. To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, in the event that you have a dispute with one or more other users, you release Honey, its officers, employees, agents, and successors from claims, demands, and damages of every kind or nature, known or unknown, suspected or unsuspected, disclosed or undisclosed, arising out of or in any way related to such disputes and/or our Services. If you are a California resident, you shall and hereby do waive California Civil Code Section 1542, which says: ”A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS WHICH THE CREDITOR DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE, WHICH, IF KNOWN BY HIM MUST HAVE MATERIALLY AFFECTED HIS SETTLEMENT WITH THE DEBTOR.”

Honey Gold

Where you carry out certain activities via our Service (including clicking on certain Honey Offers) you will earn rewards points that we call “Honey Gold”. Honey Gold is awarded where you complete a certain action using the Service, most commonly by completing a transaction on a specific third-party merchant’s website. Where Honey Gold is applicable to a particular action, this will be indicated on the Service. Once you accumulate enough Honey Gold, you can log in and redeem it for a gift card on the Honey Website. Selection of merchant gift cards may vary based on program availability. Use of a third-party merchant gift card at a selected merchant will be subject to the merchant’s own terms of service.

We can afford to give you Honey Gold because these offers are designed to share with you a portion of an affiliate commission paid by a third-party merchant to us. As such we can only provide Honey Gold to you when an action is successfully completed and tracked and after we are paid the relevant commission by the third-party merchant. If we are ultimately unable to recover payment from the relevant third-party merchant, then Honey shall have no obligation to provide any Honey Gold to you for the action performed by you. This includes instances where there are difficulties in tracking a transaction due to your use of an ad blocker or interaction with another affiliate program. To ensure you are eligible for Honey Gold in relation to a transaction, we may require you to provide copies of your order confirmation, order number, or other proof of purchase. Additionally, you must be a Member in order to participate in the Honey Gold program.

If you have any trouble using Honey Gold then please contact us at gold@joinhoney.com and we will try to figure out what went wrong. In our sole discretion we may choose to award you Honey Gold if you provide enough information about your transaction. Please note that to prevent abuse your account may become ineligible for Honey Gold if tracking your transactions becomes an issue. Basically, we’re going to try to be good people and we hope you choose to do the same. This only works if everyone plays fairly.

Honey Gold is not transferrable (i.e. it is personal to each User) and can expire as further explained below.

Expiration of Honey Gold

To maintain your Honey Gold points, you must earn at least 10 Honey Gold points during each consecutive 12-month period. To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, if you do not earn at least 10 new Honey Gold in each 12-month period, your Honey Gold balance will automatically reset to zero (0). To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, you agree that any disputes about whether your Honey Gold points should expire will be resolved by Honey in its sole discretion, and you agree to abide by Honey’s resolution of such dispute.

Referral And Other Rewards Programs

Periodically Honey may make you offers to receive Honey Gold or other rewards for taking actions to promote the Service, such as referring a friend (collectively “Rewards Programs”). In general, if you participate within the spirit of the program you will be rewarded. However, to protect ourselves from seen and unforeseen issues we reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to withhold such consideration, including Honey Gold, for any reason at any time with or without any cause. By participating in Honey Rewards Programs you accept this condition. Additionally, we may choose in our sole discretion to institute a limit on how many times you can receive each type of reward. These limits will vary from program to program. If you have questions about how many times you can participate in each Rewards Program please contact us.

Honey reserves the right to withhold or retract Honey Gold if it was accumulated through deceptive, artificial, or illegal means designed to cheat or game the program. (For instance, if you try to accumulate Honey Gold through use of a bot network, purchased email lists for unconsented referrals, or by engaging in repeated purchase-return behavior.)

In association with Rewards Programs you may be issued personalized links that (subject to and in accordance with our privacy policy) track traffic back to your account so that we can issue you rewards. You agree not to promote these personalized links through any unapproved channels which include but are not limited to: unsolicited email (SPAM), search advertising, display advertising, or any paid promotional channel. If you have questions about a specific promotional method please contact us for permission BEFORE you begin promoting your personalized link. Failure to do so will result in all rewards being withheld and your account potentially being suspended.

Honey reserves the right at any time to cancel, modify, or restrict any aspect of our Rewards Programs, including any point conversion ratios, redemption offers, expiration terms, etc. Honey reserves the right to apply such changes retroactively to rewards already accrued under any Rewards Program, if it determines that you have done so in violation of this Agreement.

Your Registration Information

You agree and understand that you are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password which, together with your Login ID email address, allows you to access the Service. That Login ID and password, together with any other contact information you provide form your “Registration Information.”

By providing us with your email address, you agree to receive all required notices electronically, to that e-mail address. It is your responsibility to update or change that address, as appropriate.

We may also use your email address to contact you about our own and third-parties' goods and services that may be of interest to you.

Please consult our privacy policy for further information. In the future (and always subject to our privacy policy), we may offer personalization options in our products that utilize knowledge about what products you are interested in to present relevant content and product offers. As we explore ways to use data to build more powerful product experiences that we believe will increase your chance of time and money savings we may provide ways to opt out of this data collection, though it may result in degraded product capabilities if such data is required to provide the product experience.

Electronic Notifications

Honey may from time to time provide automatic notifications and voluntary account-related notifications, as further explained below and subject always to our privacy policy. Our basic operating point of view is to do everything we possibly can to avoid annoying you so wherever possible we will minimize unnecessary notifications and provide configuration switches to limit unwanted communications.

Automatic notifications may be sent to you following certain changes made online to your Honey account, such as a change in your Registration Information.

Voluntary account notifications may be turned on by default as part of the Service. They may then be customized, deactivated or reactivated by you. These notifications allow you to choose alert messages for your accounts. Honey may add new notifications from time to time, or cease to provide certain notifications at any time upon its sole discretion. Each alert has different options available, and you may be asked to select from among these options upon activation of your notifications service.

Electronic notifications will be sent to the email address you have provided as your primary email address for the Service. If your email address changes, you are responsible for informing us of that change. Changes to your email address will apply to all of your notifications.

Because notifications are not encrypted, we will never include your passcode. However, notifications may include your Honey login information and some information about your accounts. Anyone with access to your email will be able to view the content of these notifications. At any time you may disable certain notifications, although we may still send you Service-related notices as needed to allow us to provide you the Service.

As part of the Honey Mobile App and to update you regarding the status of deliveries, you may receive push notifications, local client notifications, text messages, picture messages, emails or other types of messages directly sent to you outside or inside the Honey Mobile App (“Push Messages”). You acknowledge that, when you use the Honey Mobile App, your wireless service provider may charge you fees for data, text messaging and/or other wireless access, including in connection with Push Messages. You have control over the Push Messages settings, and can opt in or out of these Push Messages through the Honey Mobile App or through your mobile device’s operating system (with the possible exception of infrequent, important service announcements and administrative messages). Please check with your wireless service provider to determine what fees apply to your access to and use of the Honey Mobile App, including your receipt of Push Messages from Honey.

Disclaimer of Representations and Warranties

WE THOUGHT IT WOULD BE A GOOD IDEA TO INCLUDE A SECTION THAT IS IN ALL CAPS TO GET YOUR ATTENTION SO HERE IT GOES:

TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, THE CONTENT AND ALL SERVICES AND PRODUCTS ASSOCIATED WITH THE SERVICE OR PROVIDED THROUGH THE SERVICE (WHETHER OR NOT SPONSORED) ARE PROVIDED TO YOU ON AN “AS-IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE” BASIS.

HONEY MAKES NO REPRESENTATION, WARRANTY OR GUARANTEE THAT THE CONTENT THAT MAY BE AVAILABLE THROUGH THE SERVICE IS FREE OF INFECTION FROM ANY VIRUSES OR OTHER CODE OR COMPUTER PROGRAMMING ROUTINES THAT CONTAIN CONTAMINATING OR DESTRUCTIVE PROPERTIES OR THAT ARE INTENDED TO DAMAGE, SURREPTITIOUSLY INTERCEPT OR EXPROPRIATE ANY SYSTEM, DATA OR PERSONAL INFORMATION. YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR ENSURING THE ACCURACY OF ANY USER CONTENT THAT YOU PROVIDE, AND WE DISCLAIM ALL LIABILITY AND RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE ACCURACY OF SUCH CONTENT.

Notification Disclaimer

You also agree that Honey shall not be liable for any delays, failure to deliver, or misdirected delivery of any notification; for any errors in the content of a notification; or for any actions taken or not taken by you or any third-party in reliance on a notification.

Limitations on Honey's Liability

HERE WE GO AGAIN:

HONEY SHALL IN NO EVENT BE RESPONSIBLE OR LIABLE TO YOU OR TO ANY THIRD PARTY, WHETHER IN CONTRACT, WARRANTY, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE) OR OTHERWISE, FOR ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, EXEMPLARY, LIQUIDATED OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO LOSS OF PROFIT, REVENUE OR BUSINESS, ARISING IN WHOLE OR IN PART FROM YOUR ACCESS TO THE SERVICE, YOUR USE OF THE SERVICE OR THIS AGREEMENT, OR FOR ANY LOSS OR DAMAGE CAUSED BY YOUR RELIANCE ON INFORMATION OBTAINED ON OR THROUGH THE SERVICE, EVEN IF HONEY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. NOTWITHSTANDING ANYTHING TO THE CONTRARY IN THIS AGREEMENT, HONEY’S LIABILITY TO YOU FOR ANY CAUSE WHATSOEVER AND REGARDLESS OF THE FORM OF THE ACTION, WILL AT ALL TIMES BE LIMITED TO $500.00 (FIVE HUNDRED UNITED STATES DOLLARS).

BECAUSE SOME STATES OR JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR THE LIMITATION OF LIABILITY FOR CONSEQUENTIAL OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES, IN SUCH STATES OR JURISDICTIONS, THE LIABILITY OF HONEY SHALL BE LIMITED TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW. THEREFORE, THE FOREGOING LIMITATIONS SHALL APPLY TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW. NOTHING IN THIS AGREEMENT AFFECTS STATUTORY RIGHTS THAT CANNOT BE WAIVED OR LIMITED BY CONTRACT.
