OVERVIEW OF LOYALTY PROGRAM
The Loyalty Program is sponsored by e.l.f. Cosmetics, Inc. (“e.l.f. Cosmetics” or “we”). Participants in the Loyalty Program (a “Member”) can receive Loyalty Program points ("Points") by making qualifying purchases of e.l.f. products or by completing other qualifying activities, and can redeem Points for certain Rewards, all as detailed more in the Terms and on the Loyalty Program page on www.elfcosmetics.com (our “Website”).
Participation in the Loyalty Program is voluntary. You do not need to join the Loyalty Program to purchase e.l.f. products (either online or through a retailer). Membership is nontransferable and is subject to present and future terms and conditions. Membership in the Loyalty Program and its benefits are offered at the sole discretion of e.l.f. Cosmetics.
e.l.f. Cosmetics may, at any time, terminate, change, limit, modify or cancel the Loyalty Program or the Terms by posting the modified terms on our Website. You should check the Terms routinely to ensure you understand the terms that apply at that time. Your continued participation in the Loyalty Program after such posting will constitute your acceptance.
For more information about the Loyalty Program or your Loyalty Program account, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Membership in the Loyalty Program is open to individuals who are legal residents of the United States (including its territories and possessions) and at least 18 years old or the age of majority in the Member’s state of residence, whichever is older. By enrolling in the Loyalty Program, you are representing that you are at least 18 years old or the age of majority in your state of residence, whichever is older.
The Loyalty Program is available to individuals for their personal/non-commercial use only. Corporations, associations, resellers, or other groups may not participate in the Loyalty Program. e.l.f. Cosmetics reserves the right to limit the number of participants in the Loyalty Program.
Only one Loyalty Program account may be associated with a single email address— Loyalty Program accounts may not be shared across multiple email addresses. The person who is the authorized email account holder of the email address used to create the Loyalty Program account will be deemed to be the Member. The “authorized email account holder” is the person who is assigned the email address used to create the Loyalty Program account by an internet provider, online service provider, or other organization that is responsible for assigning email addresses for the applicable associated domain (for reference, the domain of an email address is everything after the “@” symbol).
ENROLLING IN THE LOYALTY PROGRAM
You may enroll in the Loyalty Program through our Website and following prompts to register for the Loyalty Program. Registering for an account on our Website will also enroll you in the Loyalty Program.
To enroll, you will be required to provide your email address and create a password. You may also provide additional information when you create your Loyalty Program account, such as a physical address for delivery of Rewards.
Members may earn Points by making qualifying purchases of e.l.f. products or by taking certain “Point-earning” actions.
For a purchase on our Website to be considered a “qualifying purchase”, a Member must be signed into his or her Loyalty Program account at the time of purchase.
Members may also make “qualifying purchases” from participating retailers approved by e.l.f. Cosmetics. To earn Points for a qualifying purchase from an approved retailer, a Member must sign into his or her Loyalty Program account, scan the receipt from the retailer that features the e.l.f. product, and the receipt must be verified and approved by e.l.f. Cosmetics. e.l.f. Cosmetics is not liable for illegible receipts, incomplete receipts, or problems in transmission or receipt of scanned images. More information about which retailers are “approved retailers” for receipt scanning and about how to scan receipts can be found on the Loyalty Program page on our Website.
The number of Points that a Member may earn through qualifying purchases may depend on that Member’s Loyalty Program loyalty tier. A Member may not earn more than 2,000 Points through qualifying purchases in any calendar year. Details about how many Points can be earned from qualifying purchases can be found on the Loyalty Program page on our Website.
The following are not considered to be qualifying purchases: federal, state, and local taxes, shipping charges, employee discounts, purchases of gift cards, commercial account purchases, charitable donations, returns, refunds, and, merchandise credits or any Rewards or other awards. Please note that while the actual purchase of a gift card is not considered a qualifying purchase, purchasing e.l.f. products using a gift card will be considered qualifying purchases.
If a Member makes any returns and exchanges from a qualifying purchase, e.l.f. Cosmetics reserves the right to adjust or deduct the appropriate number of Points from that Member’s Point balance.
From time to time, e.l.f. Cosmetics may establish (at its sole discretion) criteria pursuant to which a Member may earn Points (such as, for example, by participating in a contest or sweepstakes). These activities will be posted on our Website or may be published through other media (for example, in marketing communications and social media). There is no limit on Points earned from “Point-earning” actions and Points earned from “Point-earning” actions do not count toward the 2,000 Point cap referenced above.
Points earned are not eligible for redemption for 24 hours once they are awarded.
If you have concerns that Points from a qualifying purchase or other qualifying activity were not properly applied to your account, you should contact us by emailing email@example.com. Your email must specify your name and email address associated with the Loyalty Program, the date of the activity, and the issue you encountered. This email must be sent no more than 30 days after the date the purchase or other activity took place. e.l.f. Cosmetics is not responsible for late notifications about purchases or other Loyalty Program activities not being credited to a Loyalty Program account.
REWARDS AND REDEMPTION
Members can use Points to receive e.l.f. products, discounts, or other rewards (“Rewards”). Details about available Rewards can be found on the Loyalty Program page on our Website.
Points used to redeem a Reward will be deducted from the total Points available in a Member’s Loyalty Program account.
Points can only be redeemed for Rewards on our Website. To redeem a Reward, a Member must have a valid physical address linked to his or her Loyalty Program account.
LOYALTY PROGRAM TIERS
Once you earn Points and reach a certain Loyalty Program tier, you may be eligible for certain Rewards or other benefits applicable to that tier, which may change from time to time and may be offered on a limited basis. Visit the Loyalty Program page on our Website to learn more about the Loyalty Program tiers.
INACTIVITY AND DEACTIVATION/CANCELLATION OF ACCOUNTS
Points will expire after 12 months of inactivity. e.l.f. Cosmetics reserves the right, in its sole discretion and without notice, to deactivate a Member’s account after 24 months of account inactivity. Inactivity is defined as a period in which a Member earns no Points, makes no qualifying purchases, and redeems no Rewards. e.l.f. Cosmetics’ correction of Points in a Member’s account will not qualify as account activity.
No extensions, cash refunds or other exchanges will be allowed for Points that have been removed from an Account based on inactivity.
e.l.f. Cosmetics reserves the right to deactivate a Member’s Loyalty Program account in which Points were obtained as a result of fraudulent activity, reseller activity, or technical failures of any kind.
A Member may cancel his or her membership in the Loyalty Program at any time by contacting e.l.f. Cosmetics at firstname.lastname@example.org. In order to reactivate an account, a Member must contact e.l.f. Cosmetics at email@example.com.
All of a Member’s accrued Points will be lost if that Member’s Loyalty Program account is deactivated or cancelled.
MODIFICATION OR TERMINATION OF LOYALTY PROGRAM
e.l.f. Cosmetics reserves the right to cancel, modify or restrict any aspect of the Loyalty Program at any time with or without notice.
We reserve the right to change Rewards, the number of Points necessary to earn a Reward, how you earn Points and reach each Loyalty Program tier, and how we evaluate and reward your eligible purchases and other Loyalty Program activity. We reserve the right to place limits on the number of purchases or activities that are eligible for the Loyalty Program or for any given tier, the number or types of Rewards you may receive or earn in any given tier, in a given time period or for the duration of the Loyalty Program, or any combination thereof.
The Loyalty Program has no predetermined termination date and may continue until such time as e.l.f. Cosmetics, at its sole discretion, elects to terminate the Loyalty Program. In the event that the Loyalty Program is terminated, e.l.f. Cosmetics will notify Members of the termination date.
COMMUNICATIONS AND PRIVACY
Members may periodically receive operational messages from e.l.f. Cosmetics regarding the Loyalty Program. Examples of these include the welcome message, Rewards confirmation messages, and monthly Points balance messages. If a Member has opted-out of marketing messages or not consented to receiving marketing messages, operational messages will still be sent to that Member as it relates to membership in the Loyalty Program.
Any information that you submit to us or that we collect through your use of the Loyalty Program is subject to our Privacy Notice. For more information on how we use your information, please see our Privacy Notice.

Where any provision of these Terms is or becomes illegal, invalid or unenforceable in any respect under the Laws of any jurisdiction then such provision shall be deemed to be severed from these Terms and, if possible, replaced with a lawful provision which, as closely as possible, gives effect to the intention of e.l.f. Cosmetics under these Terms and, where permissible, that shall not affect or impair the legality, validity or enforceability in that, or any other, jurisdiction of any other provision of these Terms.
LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
By enrolling in the Loyalty Program, each Member agrees that e.l.f. Cosmetics and its affiliates and subsidiaries and its officers, directors, employees, representatives and agents (collectively, the “Released Parties”) will have no liability or responsibility whatsoever for, and shall be held harmless by Members or any person for, any liability for any injuries, losses or damages of any kind (including, without limitation, direct, indirect, incidental, special, consequential, or punitive or exemplary damages) to persons, including personal injury or death, or property arising in whole or in part, directly or indirectly, from any action taken or neglected to be taken with regard to the program, with the exception of errors in posting Points to Loyalty Program accounts.

Some jurisdictions may not allow the limitation or exclusion of liability for incidental or consequential damages or exclusion of implied warranties, so some of the above limitations or exclusions may not apply.
This section will survive termination of Member’s participation in the Loyalty Program.
BINDING ARBITRATION AGREEMENT
As used in this section, “Arbitration Provisions” refers to the provisions under this section entitled “Binding Arbitration Agreement.”
PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY – IT MAY SIGNIFICANTLY AFFECT YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS, INCLUDING YOUR RIGHT TO FILE A LAWSUIT IN COURT AND TO HAVE A JURY HEAR YOUR CLAIMS. IT CONTAINS PROCEDURES FOR MANDATORY BINDING ARBITRATION AND A CLASS ACTION WAIVER.
- Scope of the Arbitration Agreement. Mindful of the high cost of legal disputes, not only in dollars but in time and energy, both you and e.l.f. Cosmetics agree that any dispute between you and us concerning or arising in any way out of your use of or a purchase from the Site, these Terms, any product or service, and any advertising, promotion, or other communications between you and e.l.f. Cosmetics (collectively, a “Dispute”), shall be resolved through binding individual arbitration, including threshold questions of arbitrability of the Dispute. Both you and e.l.f. Cosmetics understand and agree that we are waiving our right to sue or go to court to assert or defend our rights. However, either you or e.l.f. Cosmetics may bring any individual Dispute in small claims court consistent with the jurisdictional and dollar limits that may apply, as long as it is brought and maintained as an individual Dispute. The term “dispute” includes any dispute, action, claim, or other controversy between you and e.l.f. Cosmetics, whether in contract, warranty, tort, statute, regulation, ordinance, or any other legal or equitable basis. “Dispute” will be given the broadest possible meaning allowable under law.
- Informal Dispute Resolution. Either party asserting a dispute shall first try in good faith to resolve it by providing written notice as specified below to the other party describing the facts and circumstances (including any relevant documentation) and allowing the receiving party 30 days in which to respond. Both you and e.l.f. Cosmetics agree that this dispute resolution procedure is a condition precedent which must be satisfied before initiating any arbitration against the other party.
- How Arbitration Works. Either party may initiate arbitration of a Dispute, will be settled by final and binding arbitration, using the English language, administered by JAMS under its Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures (the “JAMS Rules”) then in effect (those rules are deemed to be incorporated by reference into this section, and as of the date of these Terms). Unless you and e.l.f. Cosmetics agree otherwise, including to conduct of arbitration by telephone or videoconference, any arbitration hearing shall take place in the county of your residence (as determined by your billing address on file with e.l.f. Cosmetics). If you live outside the United States, any arbitration will take place in San Francisco, California. Payment for any and all reasonable JAMS filing, administrative and arbitrator fees will be in accordance with the JAMS Rules. If the value of your Dispute does not exceed $10,000, the Company will pay for the reasonable filing, administrative and arbitrator fees associated with the arbitration, unless the arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought was frivolous or brought for an improper purpose. In determining whether an action is frivolous, the arbitrator may consider whether e.l.f. Cosmetics has offered you a full refund of the sum you paid for items you purchased from e.l.f. Cosmetics or has otherwise offered full relief to you in relation to your individual claim). e.l.f. Cosmetics also waives any rights it may have to recover an award of attorneys’ fees and expenses against you. Judgment on the arbitration award may be entered in any court that has jurisdiction. Any arbitration under these Terms will take place on an individual basis – class arbitrations and class actions are not permitted. You understand that by agreeing to these Terms, you and e.l.f. Cosmetics are each waiving the right to trial by jury or to participate in a class action or class arbitration.
- WAIVER OF RIGHT TO BRING CLASS ACTION AND REPRESENTATIVE CLAIMS. All arbitrations shall proceed on an individual basis. The arbitrator is empowered to resolve the dispute with the same remedies available in court, however, any relief must be individualized to you and shall not affect any other customer. You and e.l.f. Cosmetics also agree that each may bring claims against the other in arbitration only in your or their respective individual capacities and in so doing you and e.l.f. Cosmetics hereby waive the right to a trial by jury, to assert or participate in any class action lawsuit or class action arbitration, any private attorney general lawsuit or private attorney general arbitration, and any joint or consolidated lawsuit or joint or consolidated arbitration of any kind. If a court decides that the limitations of this paragraph are deemed invalid or unenforceable, any putative class, private attorney general, or representative action must be brought in a court of proper jurisdiction and not in arbitration.
- You have the right to opt-out and not be bound by the arbitration provisions set forth in these Terms by sending written notice of your decision to opt-out to:
e.l.f. Cosmetics, Inc.
Attn: Legal Department
570 10th Street
Oakland, CA 94607
The notice must be sent to the Company within 30 days of your agreeing to these Terms, otherwise you shall be bound to arbitrate disputes in accordance with these Terms. If you opt-out of these arbitration provisions, e.l.f. Cosmetics also will not be bound by them.
- Governing Law and Other Terms. These Arbitration Provisions are governed by, and interpreted, construed, and enforced in accordance with, the Federal Arbitration Act and other applicable federal law. To the extent state law applies to any aspect of these Arbitration Provisions, or to any disputes and claims that are covered by these Arbitration Provisions, the law of the state of California will apply. We will provide notice of any material changes to these Arbitration Provisions, in which case you will have the right to opt out of these Arbitration Provisions within 90 days after such change. Except as set forth above regarding the class action waiver provision, if any portion of these Arbitration Provisions is deemed invalid or unenforceable, it will not invalidate the remaining portions of these Arbitration Provisions. Only the arbitrator is authorized to make determinations as to the scope, validity, or enforceability of these Arbitration Provisions, including whether any dispute falls within its scope. However, the parties agree that any issue concerning the validity of the class action/representative waiver above must be decided by a court, and an arbitrator does not have authority to consider the validity of the waiver.
- Intellectual Property Disputes. If you have in any manner violated or threatened to violate any of e.l.f. Cosmetics’ intellectual property rights, we may bring suit in any state or federal court in the State of California. You consent to exclusive jurisdiction and venue in these courts.
