B. Principle of Quiksilver Freedom Benefits
As a Quiksilver Freedom Benefits member, you can earn Quiksilver Freedom Benefits points (“Points”) by (i) purchasing Quiksilver brand merchandise and eligible third-party merchandise as determined by Boardriders in its sole discretion (excludes the purchase of e-gift cards, gift cards, shipping & handling charges, and sales taxes on purchases) on the Sites and at Stores (“Eligible Purchases”); and (ii) participating in Point-earning activities offered by Company from time to time (e.g., double Points Tuesdays, responding to a survey, etc.). Points earned in this way give you access to select rewards (“Rewards”) as determined by Company in its sole discretion.
C. Membership in Quiksilver Freedom Benefits
To join Quiksilver Freedom Benefits, simply ask about it at one of our Stores or join online on the Sites. You must create an online user account in order to participate in Quiksilver Freedom Benefits. Upon joining, you will receive a welcome email with a member number. Individuals who have an existing user account with Boardriders and purchased Quiksilver merchandise within the past twelve (12) months or joined the Boardriders Club loyalty program through the Quiksilver Site before the launch of the Quiksilver Freedom Benefits Program are automatically enrolled in Quiksilver Freedom Benefits, and participation in the Quiksilver Freedom Benefits Program will constitute agreement to these Terms and Conditions. Any existing and valid Boardriders Club points earned prior to an individual being automatically enrolled in Quiksilver Freedom Benefits will be converted into an equivalent number of Points.
In order to get the most complete experience out of your Quiksilver Freedom Benefits membership, including receiving exclusive Quiksilver Freedom Benefits offers, Company recommends that you subscribe to receive all Quiksilver Freedom Benefits emails. You will periodically receive emails from us. Some of these will be marketing emails, if you have subscribed to receive such emails, while others will be transactional emails that relate to your membership in Quiksilver Freedom Benefits. Examples of transactional emails include: the welcome email, account statement emails, earned Rewards emails or other communications that help us to maintain your user account. At any time, you may opt out of marketing emails, transactional emails, or both. If you opt out of marketing emails, you will not be notified of all Rewards opportunities that you would have otherwise been notified about had you agreed to receive marketing emails from us (e.g., birthday offer and special promotions). You may still access your loyalty membership status, earned Points and Rewards, by logging into your account.
You are responsible for the accuracy of the information you provide and shall be solely liable for any incorrect, incomplete or out-of-date information. Company reserves the right to request at any time any document to prove the identity of the person who has joined or wishes to join Quiksilver Freedom Benefits, particularly in the case of two people with the same name.
Only one (1) membership in Quiksilver Freedom Benefits is permitted per person and email address. In the event of a dispute over ownership of your user account, the registration will be declared to have been made by the authorized account holder of the email address submitted at the time of enrollment. For purposes of these Terms and Conditions, the “authorized account holder” is the natural person who is assigned to the submitted email address by an internet provider, online service provider, or other organization (e.g., business, educational institution, etc.) that is responsible for assigning email addresses for the domain associated with the submitted email address. Membership in the Quiksilver Freedom Benefits, Points and Rewards are non-transferable, personal and for individuals’ own private, non-professional use only. Membership, Points and Rewards cannot be assigned.

Points will expire twelve (12) months after they are earned on a rolling basis.
Points have no cash, monetary or real-world value. Unless a special offer is applicable, you shall earn one (1) Point for every U.S. or Canadian dollar ($1.00) you spend (as applicable, based on country of purchase) on the Sites or in a Store. Points may be earned in fractional amounts depending on the value of your purchase and will be rounded up to the next dollar. When making a purchase on the Sites, you must log-in to your user account in order to earn Points. When making a purchase at a Store, you must provide your email address of other membership information in order to earn Points on your in-store purchase. From time to time, we, or others acting with our permission, may notify you of special promotional offers that offer you “Bonus Points.” Bonus Points will be awarded as described in the applicable promotional offer and will be subject to any additional terms set forth in the promotional offer.
Points will not be awarded on unauthorized or fraudulent purchases, nor will Points be awarded if, in Company’s reasonable opinion, the merchandise or services purchased will be used for resale or commercial use and any Points awarded on such purchases will be forfeited. Points will not be earned on the following items: purchase of e-gift cards or gift cards, shipping & handling charges, and sales taxes on purchases.
No Points will be earned for purchases made on the Sites using the guest checkout option.
