Effective as of August 27, 2012
Eligibility and Registration. You are automatically registered for the Rewards Program when you register for an account on The X Factor Services and shall be considered a “Member”. If you register for an account on The X Factor Services, your user name, city, state and profile picture and user activity on The X Factor Services (including, without limitation, in connection with the Rewards Program) will be publicly available.
You may not participate in the Rewards Program without an account on The X Factor Services. Registration and participation in the Rewards Program is free. If you do not want to participate in the Rewards Program, you should not create an account with The X Factor Services. If you are already registered for the Rewards Program and want to stop participating, you must delete your account on The X Factor Services.
You must be at least 13 years of age to participate in the Rewards Program. If you do not so qualify, you are prohibited from accessing, using and registering for any The X Factor Service, including, without limitation the Rewards Program.
Members can earn points by engaging in certain activities on and in connection with The X Factor Services once you have registered for an account on The X Factor Services. Activities occurring prior to such registration are not eligible for Points. From time to time, The X Factor may establish (at its sole discretion) loyalty criteria pursuant to which Members may "earn" Points (such as, for example: by sharing The X Factor content; by engaging in certain specified activities on The X Factor Services or other websites specified by The X Factor, like visiting or watching videos at such websites; or by engaging in certain specified activities related to social networks). A list of current activities for which points can be earned is available at http://fanrewards.thexfactorusa.com/get-points.
The X Factor reserves the right in its sole discretion to establish additional means of earning points, to delete any or all means to earn points, to limit the number to times you may earn points for engaging in a specific activity or during a specific time period, to offer points earning opportunities to select groups of Members and to exclude specific types of activities from those that allow points to be earned. Points may expire (and become non-redeemable) after a specified period of time.
Redeeming Points. The X Factor and its sponsors and promotional partners offer certain benefits or rewards to Members in exchange for redemption of a specified number of such Member's Points, for example, merchandise, discounts, sweepstakes entries and other reward items (each a, “Reward”). Points may be redeemed by logging into The X Factor Services and visiting TheXFactorUSA.com/get-rewards. From time to time, The X Factor may change the list of available Rewards available in connection with the Rewards Program. All Rewards are subject to availability. The nature of those Rewards, and the number of Points required to obtain such Rewards, shall be established by The X Factor and The X Factor reserves the right to change the number of Points necessary to redeem a Reward at any time during the Rewards Program. All Point redemptions are final and may not be returned or exchanged. The X Factor Fan Rewards Program is eligible to everyone to earn points and receive digitally downloadable prizing that is offered within the Fan Rewards Program; however, physical prizing is only available to US residents living in the 50 United states only. U.S. residency in the 50 United States will be verified upon the fulfillment on mailing out any physical prizing.
Duration of the Rewards Program. The current season of the Rewards Program starts on September 18th, 2013 and is scheduled to end on December 31st 2013 but The X Factor may modify such dates, including, extending or shortening the current Program Period. Points may be redeemed at any time during the Program Period as set forth in these Terms. At the end of the Program Period, you will forfeit any points remaining in your account, without compensation.
