ST Rewards Terms & Conditions
ST Rewards Program
THESE PROGRAM TERMS REQUIRE BINDING ARBITRATION ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS TO RESOLVE DISPUTES AND INCLUDE A CLASS ACTION WAIVER. YOU ARE WAIVING YOUR RIGHT TO SUE IN COURT IN THE EVENT OF A DISPUTE. THESE PROGRAM TERMS INCLUDE A DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES AND LIMITATION OF LIABILITY THAT MAY APPLY TO YOU IN THE EVENT OF A DISPUTE.
1.1. The Program is open to any person with a valid United States address who is age 18 or older. You are not required to make any purchase or payment or provide any credit card information to enroll in the Program or maintain membership. Each Member is permitted only one Program account, and only one Program account may be associated with a single email address. Enrolling or attempting to enroll in the Program multiple times using different email addresses is prohibited and will be cause for termination of your participation in the Program. Employees of the Company and its subsidiaries, parent companies, or affiliates and anyone eligible for an employee-based discount are ineligible for membership in the Program. The Program is void where prohibited or restricted by law.
1.2. Eligible individuals may enroll in the Program at participating Southern Tide Stores that are owned and operated by Southern Tide LLC (“Stores”) or online by visiting the Website. To enroll in Store, see a sales associate at checkout. To enroll online, visit our Website and follow the Program prompts to enroll. Eligible individuals who already have a Southern Tide account through the Website will automatically be enrolled in the Program. Members who enroll in Store or on our Website may be required to provide first and last name, valid email address, telephone number, month of birth and zip code. During the course of your membership, you may update your personal information by logging in to your Program account. Members are solely responsible for keeping their profile information current.
- Program Benefits
2.1. Each time you make a purchase in Stores or on the Website (a “Qualifying Purchase”) following the launch of the Program and your enrollment in the Program, you will earn one (1) reward point (“Point”) for each dollar spent, excluding purchases of gift cards, shipping and handling charges, taxes and any other fees associated with your purchase. The amount of a Qualifying Purchase is based on the final sale price of merchandise purchased after any applicable discounts and coupons are applied (including Program offers redeemed). Points will not be awarded until the order associated with a Qualifying Purchase is fulfilled. If you return all of the merchandise in a Qualifying Purchase, the Points awarded for that Qualifying Purchase will be deducted from your Program account. If you return some, but not all, of the items purchased in a Qualifying Purchase, the Points awarded for that Qualifying Purchase will be reversed and you will be awarded Points for only the remaining sale price after all refunds. To earn Points for Qualifying Purchases made on the Website, you must be logged in to your Program account prior to checkout. To earn Points for in Store purchases, you will be required to provide the sales associate with the following prior to completion of the sales transaction: email address and first and last name. Points will not be awarded for orders placed before the launch of the Program or your enrollment in the Program, although Southern Tide may elect to award a fixed number of Points at enrollment for existing customers who are automatically enrolled in the Program. Points will not be awarded, and no other Program benefits will be available, for purchases through third-party online websites or at Southern Tide Signature Stores or other third-party locations carrying Southern Tide products.
2.2. We may also offer opportunities to earn additional Points based on qualifying engagement activities through the Program. Opportunities to earn Points may be changed at any time without notice in our sole discretion, and may be offered on a limited basis. You can view the current opportunities to earn Points on the Program page of the Website.
2.3. Members will qualify for a Program tier (“Reward Tier”) based on the number of Points earned during a twelve (12)-month period commencing with the Member’s enrollment in the Program and each anniversary of the Member’s enrollment date thereafter. Existing Southern Tide customers who had an account through the Website prior to the launch of the Program will be enrolled in the Program as of August 16, 2021. Points earned from a Qualifying Purchase are eligible to be counted toward a Reward Tier if the Qualifying Purchase is not cancelled, returned or refunded for thirty (30) days after the date of purchase. Therefore, if the Points that made you eligible for a particular Reward Tier consist of Points from a Qualifying Purchase, your status in that Reward Tier will commence thirty (30) days after the date of the Qualifying Purchase, as long as the Qualifying Purchase is not cancelled, returned or refunded. Your status in a particular Reward Tier will remain valid until the next twelve (12)-month anniversary of your enrollment in the Program (which will be August 16 of each year for Southern Tide customers who had an account through the Website prior to August 16, 2021). On each anniversary of your enrollment in the Program, your points will be reset to zero and you must qualify for the Reward Tier again during a single twelve (12)-month period commencing on the anniversary of your enrollment in the Program. For example, if you enroll in the Program on September 1, 2021 and your Gold Reward Tier status commences on November 15, 2021, you will remain in the Gold Reward Tier through August 31, 2022. However, on September 1, 2022 and every September 1 thereafter, your points will be reset to zero and you will be in the Bronze Reward Tier until you have earned the required number of Points to enter a new Reward Tier during a single twelve (12)-month period from September 1 through August 31 and those Points have become eligible to be counted toward your Reward Tier.
2.4. Your Reward Tier may make you eligible to receive certain Program benefits. Any benefits offered under the Program are subject to change at any time without notice at our sole discretion and may be offered on a limited basis. If birthday gifts are offered as a Program benefit, they will only be offered to Members who have provided their birthday in their Program account profile. Please note that certain Program benefits may only be offered on the Website and will not be available in Stores. You can view the current benefits for each Reward Tier on the Program page of the Website.
2.5. Program Points have no cash value, cannot be sold and are not redeemable for cash. Only the Program Member who pays for a Qualifying Purchase may accumulate Points for that Qualifying Purchase. Program accounts and benefits cannot be shared or combined with any other person or Program member. Points offered through the Program may not be transferred, purchased, assigned, auctioned, bartered or traded, including, without limitation, by death or as part of a domestic relations matter. Any attempt to do so is expressly prohibited and will be cause for termination of your participation in the Program. You agree that the Program and any Points earned under the Program do not create any property rights whatsoever in your favor.
2.6. You can check for your available Points online at any time through your Program account. Points will not be awarded or appear in your Program account until the order associated with a Qualifying Purchase is fulfilled. If you have questions regarding the Points in your account, please contact the Southern Tide customer service team at firstname.lastname@example.org. We reserve the right to determine the number of Points in any Member’s account based upon our internal records. Our good faith determination of the number of Points available to any Member shall be deemed to be correct and accurate as reflected in our records and shall be final and binding. We are not responsible for Program benefits or Points that are not issued, received, applied or refunded as a result of loss or fraudulent activity or if you are not logged in to your Program account at the time of purchase or do not maintain accurate personal information with us, and such benefits or Points will not be reissued.
- Promotional Text Messaging Consent
4.1. We may offer the opportunity to subscribe to promotional text messages in connection with the Program. By checking the box to opt into the receipt of text messages from the Company, you consent to receive automated marketing by text message from the Company or any of its designated vendors, including through the use of an automatic telephone dialing system, at the telephone number you provided, and accept and agree to be bound by the mobile messaging terms and conditions contained in our Terms and Conditions. While you consent to receive messages sent using an automatic telephone dialing system, the foregoing shall not be interpreted to suggest or imply that any or all of our mobile messages are sent using an automatic telephone dialing system. Consent is not a condition to participate in Program. Message and data rates may apply.
4.2. If you initially opt out of receiving text messages from the Company but later would like to opt into receiving text messages, you can do so at any time through your Program account or by contacting the Southern Tide customer service team at email@example.com.
4.3. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, if you do not wish to receive additional text messages, you agree to reply STOP to any mobile message from the Company or sent on behalf of the Company in order to opt out of the promotional text message program. You may receive an additional mobile message confirming your decision to opt out. You understand and agree that the foregoing options are reasonable methods of opting out and are the exclusive means of opting out. You also understand and agree that any other method of opting out, including, but not limited to, texting words other than those set forth above, sending an e-mail, or verbally requesting one of our employees to remove you from our list, are not reasonable means of opting out.
4.4. You represent and warrant that you are the subscriber and/or the regular user of the telephone number that you provided to us. If at any time you intend to stop using the mobile telephone number that has been used to subscribe to the Program, including canceling your service plan or selling or transferring the phone number to another party, you agree that you will complete the opt out process set forth above prior to ending your use of the mobile telephone number. You understand and agree that your agreement to do so is a material part of these Program Terms. You further agree that, if you discontinue the use of your mobile telephone number without notifying us of such change, you agree that you will be responsible for all costs (including attorneys’ fees) and liabilities incurred by us, or any party that assists in the delivery of the mobile messages, as a result of claims brought by individual(s) who are later assigned that mobile telephone number. This duty and agreement shall survive any cancellation or termination of your agreement to participate in the Program.
YOU AGREE THAT YOU SHALL INDEMNIFY, DEFEND, AND HOLD US HARMLESS FROM ANY CLAIM OR LIABILITY RESULTING FROM YOUR FAILURE TO NOTIFY US OF A CHANGE IN THE INFORMATION YOU HAVE PROVIDED, INCLUDING ANY CLAIM OR LIABILITY UNDER THE TELEPHONE CONSUMER PROTECTION ACT, 47 U.S.C. § 227, et seq., OR SIMILAR STATE AND FEDERAL LAWS, AND ANY REGULATIONS PROMULGATED THEREUNDER RESULTING FROM US ATTEMPTING TO CONTACT YOU AT THE MOBILE TELEPHONE NUMBER YOU PROVIDED.
- Program Termination, Cancellation or Modification
6.1. These Program Terms shall be interpreted and applied to give the Company maximum control of the administration of the Program. All decisions by the Company with respect to the administration of the Program are final and binding.
6.2. The Program and its benefits are offered at our sole discretion. We reserve the right to change, modify, cancel or terminate the Program, its benefits or these Program Terms from time to time in our sole discretion, without notice and without any further obligation to you, even if such actions by us affect the value of rewards or benefits already accumulated or earned and/or your ability to redeem such rewards or benefits. The Company may also, as a courtesy only, send updates via e-mail or notify you that there are updates the next time you make a purchase at a participating location; doing so does not create any obligation for the Company to do so again in the future. If you disagree with any changes, your sole remedy is to cancel your membership in the Program.
6.3. If you decide that you no longer want to participate in the Program, you may cancel your membership at any time by contacting the Company’s customer service team at firstname.lastname@example.org or (855) 890-8334.
6.4. We reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to terminate any Member’s participation in the Program for any reason, including but not limited to, a Member’s failure to comply with these Program Terms or the Terms and Conditions of the Website, any suspected abuse of the Program, illegal activity, fraud or other conduct that we may deem to be inconsistent with these Program Terms and/or the Program. If your membership in the Program is cancelled by you or terminated by us, you will lose all accrued Points in your account and access to benefits of all Reward Tiers at the time of such cancellation or termination.
- Resale of Products
By signing up for the Program, you expressly acknowledge and agree that you will not offer for sale or otherwise engage in any commercial activity (or permit any third parties acting on your behalf to do so) in relation to any products or services purchased through your Program account or acquired through your participation in the Program. Acceptance of an order by us does not constitute a waiver of our rights under this provision. We may place limits on purchases and reject purchases or orders which we have determined in our sole discretion violate the spirit of this section. If you are suspected of breaching this provision, in addition to immediately suspending your Program membership and shopping privileges with the Company, you agree that the Company may pursue all legal and equitable remedies available against you or anyone acting on your behalf for such breach of contract, including but not limited to, monetary damages, injunctions and/or other remedies. We may, among other things, restrict orders placed by or under the same customer account, the same credit card, Program account, and/or orders that use the same billing and/or shipping address, including orders or related accounts on our affiliates’ websites. We also reserve the right to cancel any portion of an order that cannot be fulfilled for any reason. We may modify this policy at any time without prior notice.
