Blackhawk and Client are each referred to herein as a “Party” and together as the “Parties.”
1. Master Agreement; Scope. This Agreement shall serve as a master agreement pursuant to which Client may place orders for (i) prepaid card products, whether plastic or electronic, including, as applicable, cards bearing a network logo that can be used anywhere that accepts that network brand, subject to the filter selected by Client (“Open Loop Prepaid Cards”) and branded prepaid cards (including, without limitation, amusement, theme, sports and other admission tickets) which, when activated, can be used to purchase services and merchandise from the relevant retailer (“Single Merchant Gift Cards”) (collectively, Open Loop Prepaid Cards and Single Merchant Gift Cards shall be referred to as “Cards” or “Awards”) to be used in connection with Client’s loyalty, award or promotional program sponsored by Client where individuals are awarded a Card and where no money or other thing of value is given by the individual in exchange for the Card (each a “Program”), (ii) related products, and (iii) fulfillment services (“Services”). Client agrees to purchase the quantity and denomination of Cards, related products and Services at the prices outlined in each order which is either dynamically created on Blackhawk’s website and executed by Client via electronic signature, or is electronically submitted via file transmission to Blackhawk (in a form and format to be agreed between the parties) including that information required to fulfill Cards (each such order, an “Order”). All Orders placed by Client are subject to acceptance by Blackhawk.
2. Term and Termination. Upon acceptance and approval by Client of the product set-up and/or placement of an order by Client, Client agrees to comply with the terms and conditions set forth herein, which may be amended or supplemented by BH from time to time. Current terms and conditions may be found at https://blackhawknetwork.com/card-order-agreement or any location designated by Blackhawk in the future. This Agreement will be effective as of the Effective Date and shall apply to all Orders placed by Client for Awards until the Agreement is superseded, terminated or amended by the parties as provided herein (the “Term”). This Agreement and/or any Order placed pursuant to this Agreement may be terminated by either party: (a) immediately in the event the other party ceases to function as a going concern, files a voluntary petition for relief under the bankruptcy code or makes an assignment for the benefit of creditors; or (b) upon written notice to the other party, if the non-terminating party has breached any term of this Agreement, and failed to cure such breach (for non-payment obligation breaches only) within thirty (30) days of its receipt of written notice from the terminating party of such breach, or (c) for any reason upon sixty (60) days written notice. In addition, Blackhawk may terminate this Agreement and/or any Order placed pursuant to this Agreement: (i) if required by the Network, Issuer, or any vendor required for the processing and fulfillment of any Cards; (ii) in the event any financial statement, representation, warranty, statement or certificate furnished by Client in connection with or arising out of this Agreement is materially untrue as of the date made or delivered; (iii) upon any change in any applicable statute, rule, regulation, ordinance, or other law or any order or directive or interpretation of any applicable governmental authority or regulatory body which, in the reasonable opinion of Blackhawk either invalidates or is otherwise inconsistent with the terms of this Agreement, would cause one or both of the Parties to this Agreement to be in violation of the law, would materially impact Blackhawk’ ability to satisfy its obligations under this Agreement; and/or would have a material adverse effect on the Blackhawk’ business, financial condition and/or operations; (iv) if there is excessive fraud associated with the Ordered Cards, as determined by Blackhawk in its sole discretion; (v) in the event any Client Content or other information provided by Client infringes or is alleged to infringe on the rights of any person; and/or (vi) in the event Blackhawk believes Client’s conduct may be harmful to Blackhawk’ business. No termination or expiration of this Agreement shall affect any right or obligation that accrues prior to such termination or expiration. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event that Blackhawk provides a notice of termination to Client, Blackhawk shall have the right to suspend performance under this Agreement or any Order placed pursuant to this Agreement during the notice period and/or thereafter unless and until the breach is fully remedied by Client.
3. Fees and Payment.
a. Fees. In consideration for the Cards and related services, Client shall pay the amounts set forth in the Order. Invoices associated with an Order, or payments made in association with an Order, shall include the fees set forth in the Order (“Fees”) and amounts necessary to fund Awards (collectively the face value of the Award and associated Fees are “Award Funds”) to those individuals participating in Client’s Program and, as applicable, receiving a Card in connection with Client’s Program (“Participants”). Client agrees that Award Funds and shipping costs, where applicable, shall be prepaid by Client at the time of placement of an Order and are non-refundable and non-returnable unless otherwise agreed by the Parties. Client acknowledges and agrees that Blackhawk will not be required to process or release Awards until the corresponding Award Funds are forwarded and made available to Blackhawk. Upon submission of an Order, such fees and funding shall be remitted by Client in accordance with Blackhawk’s instructions. Additional terms may apply based on payment method and shall be provided on the appropriate payment processing form by Blackhawk upon request.
b. Prefund. Client and Blackhawk may establish an account prefunded by Client (in an amount to be agreed between the parties) for payment of Award Funds owed by Client to Blackhawk (the “Prefund Account”). When the amount of available funds in the Prefund Account drops below a threshold established by agreement between the parties, Client shall submit funds in an amount sufficient to bring the balance of the Prefund Account back up to the agreed prefund amount. Client acknowledges and agrees that Blackhawk will not be required to process or release Awards until the corresponding Award Funds are forwarded and made available to Blackhawk.
c. Taxes. The parties agree that Client will be solely responsible for all tax-related withholding, filing, remittance, and reporting it deems necessary or required under this Agreement. Blackhawk shall not have any responsibility or liability for any tax-related withholding, filing, remittance, or reporting, in the United States or internationally, either to the governing regulatory body or to any Participants, and Client will indemnify and hold Blackhawk harmless from any and all Claims, investigations, inquiries, or subpoenas, and all associated costs and expenses incurred by Blackhawk, resulting from or arising out of any such tax-related withholding, filing, remittance, or reporting or the failure to perform or improper performance of the same. Blackhawk shall provide any information reasonably requested by Client to enable Client to execute its responsibilities under this subsection. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Blackhawk shall charge applicable Canadian tax on all Fees. Applicable taxes shall be determined based on the province of ship-to address for the Card(s), or the billing address for any additional services, as applicable.
4. Portal Registration: Each individual authorized by Client to place an Order via the portal (“User”) will access the portal via credentials unique to Client/User. Client acknowledges and agrees that Client is fully responsible for all Orders placed through the portal through credentials registered to Client. Blackhawk shall not be liable for, and shall not be obligated to cancel or correct, any Order made through credentials registered to Client, except to the extent of any gross negligence or willful misconduct by Blackhawk or its employees or agents.
5. Fulfillment: Following receipt of the associated Award Funds, Blackhawk will fulfill Awards. If the Awards are to be shipped directly to Participants, Blackhawk will submit the Award to the United States Postal Service (USPS) or the Canadian Post, as applicable, on behalf of Client, except to the extent otherwise specifically agreed between the parties. Electronic cards shall be distributed to the Card recipients via e-mail or to Client by delivery of bulk files via web services. Client acknowledges and understands that the use of the USPS, Canadian Post, electronic mail, or overnight courier involves risks and the potential for lost, stolen or misdirected mail or email or delays in delivery of the mail or email, and Client agrees that Blackhawk shall under no circumstance bear any liability (financial or otherwise) resulting from or attributable to lost, stolen or misdirected or delayed mail or email, except to the extent attributable to the negligence or intentional misconduct of Blackhawk. Risk of Loss for the Cards passes to client upon delivery of the Awards to the applicable carrier. Client acknowledges that Blackhawk’s delivery obligations are contingent upon client providing all necessary information to Blackhawk and otherwise being in compliance with the terms of this Agreement. Fulfillment Fees are inclusive of associated postage via regular mail, though all such fees will automatically be adjusted without any action by the parties following any increase in the relevant postal rates. Where Client elects to designate a carrier other than USPS or Canadian Post, or where Client elects bulk shipment of Awards, shipping fees shall be passed through to the Client.
6. Prepaid Cards:
a. Fulfillment Requirements: Client shall not offer Cards for resale to consumers. Client represents and warrants that it shall only request fulfillment of Awards pursuant to a bona fide, good faith awards, rewards, loyalty, incentive, rebate, or promotional Program. Client shall be solely responsible to manage and implement its promotion and determine which Participants are eligible to receive Cards and receive value on the Cards. Client shall not request that Cards be provided to persons who have not reached the age of majority in their jurisdiction. Client shall not utilize Cards for payment of “commissions”, e.g., the Card program shall not provide a primary source of compensation to the Participant.
b. Transaction Data: Transactional information obtained by any third party Card Issuer utilized by Blackhawk in the fulfillment of prepaid cards will be the sole property of such third party.
c. Network and Issuer Rights: Client recognizes and acknowledges that the design of any Card, any Card program, and the use of Cards as provided in this SOW, are subject to the approval of Visa®, MasterCard®, or Discover®, as applicable (“Network”), and the issuing bank with whom the accounts associated with the Cards are held, or, for Single Merchant Gift Cards, the merchant issuer ("Issuer"). Client acknowledges that such approval may be withdrawn by the Network or Issuer at any time. In addition, should Blackhawk determine in its sole discretion that any such design, program, or use is likely to result in a withdrawal of approval by the Network or Issuer, or is likely to result in economic or reputational damage to the Network, the Issuer, or Blackhawk based upon the actual or intended use of Cards or circumstances in which Cards are distributed, then Blackhawk may cease or suspend issuance of Cards in association with this SOW, and/or require Client to cease or suspend distribution of Cards held in inventory. Blackhawk reserves the right to determine the appropriate network for all Open Loop Prepaid Cards or programs in accordance with applicable law and Network and Issuer requirements. The Card Issuer may impose a limit on the total active balance any Participant may control. Blackhawk reserves the right to monitor such balances and may, but shall not be required to, block access to funds if the combined balance of all Cards controlled by a single Participant exceeds the limit set by the Issuer.
d. International Card Fulfillment: Client shall not send or instruct Cards to be sent outside the U.S., its territories, the District of Columbia, or Canada, unless the Program utilizes a product specifically authorized for international shipment. A fee of $1.00 per Card surcharge shall apply for all Cards sent outside the US or Canada for 1 oz. card packet. International shipment fees are subject to change without notice. Only personalized individual orders may be shipped internationally. International shipping addresses are limited to English alphabet only. Blackhawk shall not fulfill Cards to countries prohibited or sanctioned by the Office of Foreign Assets Control (“OFAC”), the Financial Action Task Force ("FATF"), the Office of the Superintendent of Financial Institutions (“OSFI”), and/or as directed by Issuer (hereinafter “Prohibited Countries”).

e. Information Requests: Blackhawk, the Issuer, and the Network may require Client to provide certain information to identify: (i) the intended use of Cards issued under this SOW, (ii) Client’s identity, and (iii) Client’s owners. Such information may be used to comply with applicable anti-money laundering laws, and to confirm that the Cardholder Agreement will comply with applicable laws, rules, and regulations. Client represents and warrants that any such information provided to Blackhawk is true and accurate and shall remain true and accurate prior to the placement of any Fulfillment Request. Based upon the information so provided (or Client’s failure to provide such information), Blackhawk, the Issuer, and the Network reserve the right to withdraw approval for Client’s program.
f. Third Parties: Client shall disclose to Blackhawk any third party to be used for or involved in payment or distribution of Cards (all such parties, the “Third Parties”). Further, upon any changes to the contact or identification information for any Third Party, Client shall provide Blackhawk with such updated information fifteen business (15) days in advance of such change.
g. Supplemental terms: If Client wishes to purchase any Cards, the resale and distribution of which are subject to additional terms and conditions dictated by the Issuer or necessary in Blackhawk’s reasonable discretion, Client acknowledges that execution of and compliance with such terms and conditions shall be a condition precedent to Client's ability to purchase and/or resell such Cards.

i. General: Open Loop Prepaid Cards may be anonymous or personalized, as identified in this SOW. For personalized Open Loop Prepaid Cards, Client shall provide only the first name and last name, or first initial and last name, of a natural person.

As applicable, the personalized Card demographic data must include Participant’s home address regardless of the shipment method. Client shall transmit Participant home address and updates thereto as necessary to Blackhawk regardless of the shipment method specific to personalized Cards. Should addresses other than the Participant’s home address be provided, Client accepts and acknowledges that the Card may be suspended and/or cancelled and the Card may not function at the point of sale. Blackhawk reserves the right to deny participation or cancel any issued Open Loop Prepaid Card for any Participant or proposed Participant should the name of the Participant appear on the OFAC), OSFI or Financial Transactions and Reports Analysis Centre of Canada (“FINTRAC”) lists, or other local, state, federal, or foreign lists of individuals being pursued by law enforcement agencies, or other such legal or risk related reasons as solely determined by Blackhawk.

Card Package: If Client selects a plastic Card as the Award type, each Card will be issued with a Card carrier, a Cardholder Agreement insert, an envelope, and any other inserts applicable to the Card product (such as a “tips” page) or selected by the Client (collectively “Materials”). Client may utilize standard Materials, standard Materials featuring Client’s co-brand image, or custom Materials. Fees for co-branded or custom Materials shall be detailed in the “Fees” section of this SOW. For non-custom Materials, whether or not co-branded, Blackhawk reserves the right to change the Materials without notice. Any co-branding by Client shall not be changed without Client’s approval.

Client may establish customer service guidelines whereby Blackhawk customer service representatives may waive any such fees and credit charged fees to the relevant cardholder account, in which case any amounts so waived and/or credited will be billed to Client. Should any of the following occur during the Term of this Agreement so as to materially alter any features of the Cards, such as Card expiration of fees (including without limitation maintenance or interchange fees), then the parties agree that Blackhawk will no longer be required to offer Cards as a vehicle for Awards under this SOW under the pricing set forth herein, and both parties agree to negotiate new pricing in good faith: (i) the issuance of new or modified laws, rules or regulations, including without limitation rules issued by the Federal Reserve regarding the definition of “promotional cards”; (ii) a court ruling; or (iii) a change in the applicability of federal preemption to state or local stored value card regulations.

Client further agrees that it waives any right to dispute charge backs related to “force post” transactions associated with prepaid cards issued under this SOW, where Client, Purchaser, or an affiliate of Client or Purchaser, is the merchant associated with the “force post”. If Client requests bulk shipment of Cards, Client shall be solely obligated to ensure storage of any Cards in its possession, custody, or control in accordance with Network or Issuer storage guidelines provided by Blackhawk to Client.

The terms and conditions set forth below comprise what Amazon requires in an Agreement Acknowledgement. In the event that there is any conflict or inconsistency between the Agreement and this Agreement Acknowledgement, the provisions of this Agreement Acknowledgement shall control, unless specifically amended herein.
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the Agreement, and in consideration for Blackhawk’s services to you with regard to the Amazon Cards, You hereby acknowledge and agree to be bound by and comply with the following terms and conditions with regard to Amazon Cards:
a) Other than as contemplated in the Agreement, You will not resell any Amazon Cards;
b) All Amazon Cards are subject to the Amazon general terms (as defined and identified by Amazon at https://www.amazon.com/gp/help/customer/display.html?nodeId=202120960 or any location designated by Amazon in the future). Amazon reserves the right to void or reject any Amazon Cards for redemption that is suspected to have been obtained or created by fraud, deception, data breach, account compromise, or any other improper or illegal conduct (each, a "Security Incident"). You will make the Amazon general terms available to recipients of Amazon Cards in a manner and form as provided by Blackhawk, the required form of which is directed by Amazon;
c) You will maintain (and require that your Purchasers, if any, maintain) administrative and technical safeguards and other security measures consistent with current industry best practices to protect the security and confidentiality of Amazon Cards, associated serial numbers, your Blackhawk account credentials, any API access credentials, and any other information that you receive or use under the Agreement from threats or hazards to its security and integrity, accidental loss, alteration, or disclosure. Additionally, after you distribute any Amazon Cards to your Purchasers or Participants, you must securely delete and/or remove the associated Amazon claim codes from all of your electronic and physical systems. You will inform us immediately if you discover or suspect a Security Incident involving Amazon Cards.
d) You will not (and will require that your Purchasers, if any, not) sell, lease, or rent the information that an individual is a Participant or a Participant is an intended user of the Amazon Site(s) for any purpose, or use such information for purposes of sales, promotion, or advertisement of any kind to any Participant. Nothing in this Section will prevent you or any Purchaser from conducting marketing activities based solely on information independently acquired or developed by you or any Purchaser through activities unconnected to the Agreement.
e) You (and your Purchasers, if any) will not (a) charge any fees to a Participant in connection with the use or distribution of Amazon Cards, (b) resell any Amazon Card to a Participant for more than its redemption value, or (c) misrepresent the Redemption Value of any Amazon Card.
f) You will not use ACI Marks except in accordance with Amazon’s Brand Use Requirements (found at https://www.amazon.com/corpgcbrand or any location designated by Amazon in the future) and as is expressly permitted by Blackhawk which is directed by Amazon;
g) You will not (and will require than any Purchaser does not) claim any Amazon Cards to your (or any Purchaser's) own account to procure goods or services from the Amazon Sites.
h) If you (or any Purchaser) is a participant in the Amazon Sites Associates Program, then you (or such Purchaser) may not purchase, redeem, suggest, or direct any Purchasers or Participants to use or redeem Gift Cards or Claim Codes through that program.
i) You will submit any advertisement or promotional material or other related content created by You in connection with Your advertising or distribution of Amazon Cards (“Placements”) to Blackhawk for review, and must obtain Blackhawk’s prior written consent prior to using any such Placement. You will not use the Amazon brand to disparage Amazon, its products or services, or its partners in any manner which it believes, in its sole discretion, may diminish or otherwise damage or tarnish Amazon’s goodwill.
j) You permit the disclosure by Blackhawk of Your information as necessary for Blackhawk to fulfill its reporting obligations under its agreement with Amazon. “Your information” means Your name, a description of Your use of Amazon Cards, the sales price of Amazon Cards offered by You, sales figures relating to the sale of such Amazon Cards from You (including breakdown by geography and location), a description of advertisements or other promotional materials created in connection with Your advertising or distribution of Amazon Cards, the identifiers of Amazon Cards sold by You, and such other information as Amazon may reasonably request. In the event Amazon requests information related Your Purchaser that Blackhawk does not already have, including its name, use of the Amazon Cards, sale price of the Amazon Cards, sales figures relating to the sale of such Amazon Cards (including breakdown by geography and location), a description of advertisements or other promotional materials created in connection with the advertising or distribution of Amazon Cards, the identifiers of Amazon Cards sold by You, and such other information as Amazon may reasonably request, you shall provide such information within seven business days, and you agree that Blackhawk may disclose that information to Amazon as required by Amazon.
k) You disclaim, to the extent permitted by Applicable Law, all warranties and any liability by Amazon or its Affiliates for any damages, whether direct, indirect, incidental or consequential, arising from the sale, resale and distribution of any Amazon Cards. Notwithstanding, this section (k) does not apply to any claim that Client may have directly against Amazon and does not apply to any warranty or liability that Amazon has agreed to under a separate agreement or arrangement with You. Further, in the event Amazon ceases to carry forth its responsibilities as issuer of the Amazon Cards sold by You, then Blackhawk and You will collaborate to seek available remedies, including using remedies available in Blackhawk’s agreement with Amazon. For the avoidance of doubt, You acknowledge that Blackhawk is not required to or liable for refunds associated with Amazon Cards, except as required by or liable for under the Agreement; and
l) You will defend and indemnify Amazon and its Affiliates (and each of their respective employees, directors and representatives) from and against any and all Losses arising out of any Claim against ACI, its Affiliates, or any of their respective employees, directors and representatives to the extent such Claim is based on (i) any failure by You to provide or disclose the full terms, conditions and restrictions applicable to Amazon Cards as provided to You by Blackhawk, (ii) Your marketing, promotion and distribution of Amazon Cards (except to the extent attributable to the ACI Marks), (iii) any violations of Applicable Law by You or Your employees or agents, and (iv) any violation of Your obligations or terms in the foregoing Sections (a) – (k) of this Agreement Acknowledgement.
