If your access to or use of the Platform or Services is prohibited by applicable law, you are not authorized to access or use either. We are not responsible if you access or use the Platform or Services in any manner that violates applicable law.
If you have any questions or comments, we are always listening at firstname.lastname@example.org.
THIS AGREEMENT CONTAINS (1) AN ARBITRATION PROVISION; (2) A WAIVER OF RIGHTS TO BRING A CLASS ACTION AGAINST US; AND (3) A RELEASE BY YOU OF ALL CLAIMS FOR DAMAGE AGAINST US THAT MAY ARISE OUT OF YOUR USE OF THE PLATFORM & SERVICES. BY USING THE PLATFORM & SERVICES, YOU AFFIRM THAT YOU AGREE TO THESE PROVISIONS.
- Changes to the Terms
We may, at our discretion, modify, update, add to, discontinue, remove or otherwise change these Terms at any time. When we revise these Terms, we will post a revised version on the Platform. You are free to decide whether or not to accept a revised version of these Terms, but accepting these Terms, as revised, is required for your continued access to and use of the Platform and Services. If you do not agree to these Terms or any revised version of these Terms, your sole recourse is to terminate your access to and use of the Platform and Services. Your continued use of the Platform and Services constitutes your acceptance of such modifications and your agreement to be bound by these Terms.
There are currently no fees for the Platform or the Services, but we reserve the right to charge fees for the Platform and Services any in the future. We will notify you before charging any fees for the Platform or Services by notifying you electronically, by posting such fees on the Website and Silvur App, as applicable, or by any other method permitted by applicable law. If you continue accessing or using the Platform or Services after such notice, you must pay all applicable fees for the Platform or Services.
- Silvur Marketplace and Merchant Purchases
Cash Back. We offer the ability for you to earn cash back (“Cash Back”) on your purchases completed through the Platform. We receive compensation for referring buyers to the retailers, brands, merchants and other partners participating in Platform (“Sellers”). We give a portion of this compensation back you as Cash Back. Compensation received by us may play a part in whether retailers and products appear on our site, where they are placed, and how we promote them to you. Participation in Platform and the opportunity to earn Cash Back are offered at our sole discretion and subject to your compliance with these Terms.
Silvur Marketplace. We offer a marketplace through the Platform (the “Silvur Marketplace”) that allows you to purchase products (“Products”) from participating Sellers. We are not the merchant of record for any Product purchases made through the Silvur Marketplace and do not have any liability with respect to any Products you purchase through the Silvur Marketplace. All Product purchases made through Silvur Marketplace are subject to the Seller’s policies, including, without limitation, applicable shipping, privacy, and return policies. Please review applicable Seller’s policies prior to making your purchase. Your use of the Silvur Marketplace is subject to these Terms, the Seller’s policies and any other terms accompanying each Product offer and will govern to the extent they vary from these terms.
Cash Back Exclusions. Cash Back amounts vary by store and product category and may contain exclusions in the terms of the offer and/or the applicable store page. Please review these terms carefully.
- Seller Policies
A Product purchased from Seller is governed by and subject to the applicable Seller policies, including applicable exchange and shipping policies. You agree that we are not agents of any Seller and that Sellers operate independently and are not under our control. Accordingly, your participation in offers or promotions of, or correspondence with, Seller is solely between you and that Seller. We do not assume any liability, obligation or responsibility for any part of such correspondence, offer or promotion, including, without limitation, the withdrawal or modification of any such offer or promotion. We are not responsible for changes to, discontinuance of or withdrawal from participation in the Platform by any Seller, or for any effect on accrual of Cash Back caused by such changes, discontinuance or withdrawal.
- Bonuses & Other Rewards
We may periodically offer bonuses or rewards for referring others to the Platform or for other specific actions. The terms and conditions accompanying such offers will govern how they are earned and paid if the terms and conditions differ from these Terms. All bonuses and rewards are subject to review. We reserve the right to withhold, deny or cancel any bonuses and/or rewards and/or terminate your Account if, in our sole discretion, we deem any bonuses and/or rewards as fraudulent, abusive, unethical, suspicious or otherwise inconsistent with these Terms or any other applicable law or regulation.
- Referral Program
The Silvur Referral Program (the “Referral Program”) allows you to earn cash (“Referral Rewards”) by referring friends to become new users of Silvur.
To participate, refer friends who have not previously created a Silvur Account (“Friends”) by sending them the personal referral code provided to you by Silvur (“Referral Code”). You may share your Referral Code via email, social media and other methods that Silvur may provide. For each Friend who creates an Account through your Referral Code that complies with these Terms (an “Eligible Referral Account”), we will post to your Account (generally within 30 days) a Referral Reward amount, which may change from time to time. The current Referral Reward amount is $10.00. The maximum amount of Referral Rewards that you may earn as part of the Referral Program shall be established by Silvur from time to time. The current maximum amount of Referral Rewards that you may earn as part of the Referral Program is $150.00. In order to be eligible for the Referral Program, you must have an active Account in good standing. Referral Rewards are non-transferable.
Friends who create an Account using a valid Referral Code will also be eligible to receive entries in Silvur’s “New Retirement Normal” Sweepstakes. Please see the Sweepstakes Terms & Conditions for complete details. A Friend may only use one Referral Code. If a referred Friend receives Referral Codes from multiple Silvur users, only the Silvur user associated with the Referral Code actually used to create an Account by the referred Friend will receive Referral Rewards.
Silvur expressly reserves the right to disqualify any referrals it believes in its sole discretion are generated by scripts, macros or other automated or fraudulent means (e.g., using fake Accounts) or in violation of these Terms and to take action and seek damages to the fullest extent permitted by law against any user it finds to be tampering with the operation of the Referral Program or otherwise acting in violation of these Terms, which may include, without limitation, terminating Account access or participation in the Referral Program, delaying or cancelling the rewarding of Referral Rewards, or revoking or refusing to honor outstanding Referral Rewards. In all matters relating to the administration of the Referral Program, the decisions of Silvur will be final.
Referrals should only be used for personal and non-commercial purposes. Referral Codes should not be published or distributed on commercial websites (such as coupon websites, Reddit, or Wikipedia), on blogs. or via Search Engine Marketing (e.g., AdWords/Yahoo/Bing). You are prohibited from “spamming” anyone with referral invitations. This includes mass emailing, texting or messaging people you do not know or using automated systems or bots through any channel to distribute your Referral Code. You are prohibited from paying to advertise your Referral Code.
Silvur may modify, update or discontinue the Referral Program, in whole or in part, with or without notice, and will not be liable to you or your Friends in the event of any modification, suspension or discontinuance of the Referral Program.
Referral Rewards will remain in your Account until redeemed as described below.
- Accruing Cash Back
Subject to these Terms, we will automatically provide credit Cash Back to your Account when you purchase qualifying goods or services or perform other qualifying actions identified by us. Silvur, in its sole discretion, establishes the terms and conditions for each qualifying purchase or action and determines whether you have satisfied such terms and conditions to receive Cash Back. Such terms and conditions are set forth on the Platform and may be updated, modified, suspended, or cancelled by us at any time in our sole discretion. All offers made available to you through the Platform are temporary and may become unavailable without notice. You may also have a limited, prescribed window of time to take advantage of an offer. Always check the Platform for offers currently available to you.
Without limiting anything else contained in the Terms, if you return, charge back, cancel, dispute, or otherwise request a refund for a qualifying purchase for which you have already received Cash Back, we will reduce the balance of Cash Back in your Account by the amount of Cash Back you received for such transaction. If the balance of Cash Back in your Account is less than the amount of Cash Back you received for such transaction, we will offset the applicable amount of Cash Back from Cash Back you would otherwise receive for future qualifying actions.
Cash Back that you receive as a result of a qualifying online purchase will be reflected in your Account after the return period for the purchase has expired and generally within 60-90 Business Days after the online purchase is completed. In some cases, it may take longer for Cash Back to be reflected in your Account. For example, Cash Back for travel-related purchases typically does not accrue until after travel has been completed. For purposes of these Terms, “Business Day” means Monday through Friday, excluding federal banking holidays. If you do not automatically receive Cash Back for purchasing qualifying goods or services or for performing other qualifying actions as identified by us, you have ninety (90) days from the date of transaction to contact us, provide evidence of the purchase and request Cash Back earned. Any requests for Cash Back earned after these deadlines will not be honored and the Cash Back associated with the transaction will be forfeited.
- Account Adjustments
In our sole discretion, we may deduct Cash Back from your account to make adjustments for returns and cancellations with respect to Cash Back purchases. The determination of whether a purchase made through a Seller qualifies for Cash Back is at our sole discretion. If a Seller fails to report a transaction to us or fails to make payment to us for any reason, we reserve the right to cancel the Cash Back associated with that transaction. In addition, we may make adjustments for any Cash Back that we, in our sole discretion, deem as fraudulent, abusive, unethical, suspicious or otherwise inconsistent with these Terms or any other applicable law or regulation. These decisions are final and should you disagree with any adjustments made to your account or payments made to you, your sole remedy is to withdraw from the Platform.
You are responsible for making sure the Cash Back balance reflected in your Account is correct. If you believe that your Account does not accurately reflect Cash Back that you are eligible to receive, please contact us at email@example.com.
Cash Back will remain in your Account until redeemed as described below.
- Redeeming Cash Back, Referral Rewards & Other Rewards
Subject to these Terms and our approval, we will automatically redeem (i) Cash Back from your Account on a quarterly basis and (ii) Referral Rewards from your Account on a monthly basis. Prior to redeeming Cash Back or Referral Rewards, (i) you must verify an email address associated with your Account, (ii) the balance of Cash Back or Referral Rewards in your Account must be equivalent to at least $25 in order to redeem Cash Back or Referral Rewards, and (iii) you must have completed an offer-qualifying transaction with a participating merchant for Cash Back. We will generally redeem Cash Back or Referral Rewards from your Account and credit your designated U.S. bank account or other payment method permitted by us and designated by you (“Redemption Method”) within 1-5 Business Day(s) of the quarterly redemption date. However, we reserve the right to delay payment for any purchase based on changes to Seller’s policies at any time. We also reserve the right to modify the payment schedule at any time.
You are solely responsible for verifying the accuracy and completeness of any credits to your Redemption Method performed by us hereunder. You must notify us of any errors within 15 days of such information being made available to you. If you do not notify us of any such errors within such 15 days, you will forfeit the right to contest a transaction, except to the extent such forfeiture is prohibited by applicable law.
Certain limits may apply to your redemption of Cash Back or Referral Rewards. For example, unless otherwise permitted by us, you may only redeem Cash Back or Referral Rewards up to the equivalent of $500 in any day. Without limiting any of the other conditions of these Terms, we may modify the redemption terms for Cash Back and Referral Rewards at any time in our sole discretion.
All amounts paid to you hereunder are exclusive of any applicable withholding, sales, use, excise, value added, or other taxes. You acknowledge and agree that you are responsible for determining, paying, withholding, filing, and reporting all taxes, duties, and other governmental assessments associated with your activity in connection with the Platform. We are not responsible for determining whether you owe taxes in connection with your access to or use of the Platform or for collecting, reporting, or remitting taxes arising from your access to or use of the Platform, except for our own income taxes. You agree to promptly and fully reimburse and indemnify us for any taxes, penalties, and interest assessed by any taxing authority regarding amounts owed by you in connection with these Terms.
Depending on applicable tax laws, your receipt of rewards may be subject to reporting to certain tax authorities. In accordance with such laws, we may be required to send to you and file certain forms with tax authorities, such as the IRS Form 1099-MISC (Miscellaneous Income), for any year in which rewards are issued to you. If we request information from you in order to complete a required tax form, and you fail to provide the requisite information, you will be prohibited from redeeming Cash Back or Referral Rewards from your Account until we receive the required information.
- Segmented Offers & Right to Test
Not all users will receive all offers. Offer availability will fluctuate based on a variety of factors such as geographical location, transactional history with a particular merchant, transactional trends, and Account tenure. Offer appearance and offer amount may also vary depending on your transactional history with a particular merchant, transactional trends, and Account tenure. We reserve the right to apply various search algorithms or to use methods to optimize results for particular users’ experiences. Search results and order may appear different on the Silvur Mobile App than they appear on the Website. To optimize the experience for both Sellers and users, we retain the right to run occasional tests that will be limited in duration but may alter how we display offers.
- No Investment Recommendations or Advice
Articles, commentaries, projections, investment plans and other content provided by Silvur on or through the Platform are for illustrative or educational purposes only and do not constitute investment, financial planning, legal or tax advice, or an offer to buy, sell or hold any security. Forecasts or projections of investment outcomes in investment plans are estimates only, based upon numerous assumptions about future capital markets returns and economic factors. As estimates, they are imprecise and hypothetical in nature, do not reflect actual investment results, and are not guarantees of future results. Diversification does not ensure a profit or protect against a loss in a declining market. There is no guarantee that any particular asset allocation or mix of funds will meet your investment objectives or provide you with a given level of income. Investing entails risk including the possible loss of principal and there is no assurance that the investment will provide positive performance over any period of time.
You agree you are responsible for your own investment research and investment decisions, that Silvur is only one of many tools you may use as part of a comprehensive investment education process, that you should not and will not rely on Silvur as the primary basis of your investment decisions and, except as otherwise provided for herein, Silvur will not be liable for decisions/actions you take or authorize third parties to take on your behalf based on information you receive or information you otherwise see on our Platform.

YOU EXPRESSLY UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT, TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, SILVUR, AND ITS AFFILIATES, OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, PUBLISHERS, COLLABORATORS, BUSINESS PARTNERS AND LICENSORS, SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES, ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH YOUR ACCESS TO OR USE OF THE PLATFORM OR SERVICES OR ANY INFORMATION, PRODUCTS, OR OTHER CONTENT (INCLUDING THAT OF THIRD PARTIES) INCLUDED IN OR ACCESSIBLE THROUGH THE PLATFORM OR SERVICES, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, EXEMPLARY, OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES OF ANY KIND, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, PERSONAL INJURY, PAIN AND SUFFERING, EMOTIONAL DISTRESS, LOSS OF REVENUE, LOSS OF PROFITS, LOSS OF BUSINESS OR ANTICIPATED SAVINGS, LOSS OF USE, LOSS OF GOODWILL, LOSS OF DATA, AND WHETHER CAUSED BY TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), BREACH OF CONTRACT, OR OTHERWISE, EVEN IF FORESEEABLE.

- Dispute Resolution by Binding Arbitration, Jury Trial Waiver and Class Action Waiver
FOR ANY AND ALL CONTROVERSIES, DISPUTES, DEMANDS, CLAIMS, OR CAUSES OF ACTION BETWEEN YOU AND US (INCLUDING THE INTERPRETATION AND SCOPE OF THIS SECTION AND THE ARBITRABILITY OF THE CONTROVERSY, DISPUTE, DEMAND, CLAIM, OR CAUSE OF ACTION) RELATING TO THE PLATFORM OR SERVICES OR THESE TERMS (AS WELL AS ANY RELATED OR PRIOR AGREEMENT THAT YOU MAY HAVE HAD WITH US), YOU AND WE AGREE TO RESOLVE ANY SUCH CONTROVERSY, DISPUTE, DEMAND, CLAIM, OR CAUSE OF ACTION EXCLUSIVELY THROUGH BINDING AND CONFIDENTIAL ARBITRATION. In the event of any such controversy, dispute, demand, claim, or cause of action, the complaining party must notify the other party in writing thereof. Within 30 days of such notice, you and we agree to use reasonable efforts to attempt to resolve the dispute in good faith. If you and we do not resolve the dispute within 30 days after such notice, the complaining party may seek remedies exclusively through arbitration. Except as otherwise expressly provided by applicable law, the demand for arbitration must be made within a reasonable time after the controversy, dispute, demand, claim, or cause of action in question arose, and in any event within two years after the complaining party knew or should have known of the controversy, dispute, demand, claim, or cause of action.
The arbitration will take place in the federal judicial district of your residence. As used in this Section, “we” and “us” mean Silvur and its subsidiaries, affiliates, predecessors, successors, and assigns and all of our and their respective employees, officers, directors, agents, and representatives. In addition, “we” and “us” include any third party providing any product, service, or benefit in connection with the Services or these Terms (as well as any related or prior agreement that you may have had with us) if such third party is named as a co-party with us in any controversy, dispute, demand, claim, or cause of action subject to this Section.
Arbitration will be subject to the Federal Arbitration Act and not any state arbitration law. The arbitration will be conducted before one commercial arbitrator from the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) with substantial experience in resolving commercial contract disputes. As modified by these Terms, and unless otherwise agreed upon by the parties in writing, the arbitration will be governed by the AAA’s Commercial Arbitration Rules and, if the arbitrator deems them applicable, the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (collectively, the “Rules and Procedures”). You should review this Section carefully. To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, YOU ARE GIVING UP YOUR RIGHT TO GO TO COURT to assert or defend your rights EXCEPT for matters that you file in small claims court in the state or municipality of your residence or as otherwise provided in the Rules and Procedures within the jurisdictional limits of the small claims court and as long as such matter is only pending in that court. Additionally, notwithstanding the agreement to arbitrate included in this Section, you and we may seek emergency equitable relief in federal court if it has jurisdiction or, if it does not, in a state court located in the federal judicial district of your residence in order to maintain the status quo pending arbitration, and you and we hereby agree to submit to the exclusive personal jurisdiction of the courts located within the federal judicial district of your residence for such purpose. A request for interim measures will not be deemed a waiver of the obligation to arbitrate.
Your rights will be determined by a NEUTRAL ARBITRATOR and NOT A JUDGE OR JURY. You are entitled to a FAIR HEARING, BUT the arbitration procedures may be SIMPLER AND MORE LIMITED THAN RULES APPLICABLE IN COURT. Arbitrators’ decisions are as enforceable as any court order and are subject to VERY LIMITED REVIEW BY A COURT.
You and we must abide by the following rules: (A) ANY CLAIMS BROUGHT BY YOU OR US MUST BE BROUGHT IN THE PARTY’S INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING; (B) THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S CLAIMS; MAY NOT OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A REPRESENTATIVE OR CLASS PROCEEDING; AND MAY NOT AWARD CLASS-WIDE RELIEF; (c) we will pay as much of your filing and hearing fees in connection with the arbitration as required by the Rules and Procedures and/or as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive as compared to the cost of litigation; (d) we also reserve the right, in our sole and exclusive discretion, to assume responsibility for any or all of the costs of the arbitration; (e) the arbitrator will honor claims of privilege and privacy recognized at law; (f) the arbitration will be confidential, and neither you nor we may disclose the existence, content, or results of any arbitration, except as may be required by applicable law or for purposes of enforcement of the arbitration award; (g) subject to the limitation of liability provisions of these Terms, the arbitrator may award any individual relief or individual remedies that are expressly permitted by applicable law; and (h) each party will pay its own attorneys’ fees and expenses, unless there is a statutory provision that requires the prevailing party to be paid its fees and litigation expenses and the arbitrator awards such attorneys’ fees and expenses to the prevailing party, and, in such instance, the fees and costs awarded will be determined by the applicable law.
This Section will survive termination of these Terms as well as any voluntary payment of any debt in full by you or any bankruptcy by you or us. With the exception of subparts (a) and (b) of this Section (prohibiting arbitration on a class or collective basis), if any part of this Section is deemed to be invalid, unenforceable, or illegal, or otherwise conflicts with the Rules and Procedures, then the balance of this Section will remain in effect and will be construed in accordance with its terms as if the invalid, unenforceable, illegal, or conflicting part was not contained herein. If, however, either subpart (a) or (b) of this Section is found to be invalid, unenforceable, or illegal, then the entirety of this Section will be null and void, and neither you nor we will be entitled to arbitration. If for any reason a controversy, dispute, demand, claim, or cause of action proceeds in court rather than in arbitration, the controversy, dispute, demand, claim, or cause of action will be exclusively brought in federal court if it has jurisdiction or, if it does not, in a state court located in the federal judicial district of your residence.
