2. Registering for Nine PBS
Registration for Nine PBS is required to receive in-store discounts from participating merchants. In order to access the online benefits and features, you may be required to create an account. When you create an account, you must provide Nine PBS with accurate and complete information (including but not limited to card number, group code, username, password and zip code) and advise of any changes by updating your online profile or contacting Nine PBS Customer Service.

Members who do not wish to participate in this discount program are not required to submit their address information in order to become a registered member. Any future changes required by a Member must be submitted by the Member via his or her account. Any change made by a registered Member is the sole responsibility of the Member.

When you register online, you will be asked to create a password to view your account. You may not select a password that violates anyone’s rights or one that, in Augeo’s sole discretion, is considered offensive, improper or inappropriate. If you do so, Augeo may modify or delete it.

If Augeo reasonably believes that any of your Nine PBS materials are being used in any of these ways, Augeo reserves the right to cancel your Nine PBS and/or your Member rights immediately.

3. Using Nine PBS
Your Nine PBS account provides you access to certain savings, benefits and services. You must register for Nine PBS to access the complete savings, benefits and services, but you can receive discounts at participating merchants without registering. Visit ninepbs.publicmediabenefits.com to register for Nine PBS. Nine PBS is nontransferable and may only be used by the person whose name is associated with the card number.

Use of your Nine PBS benfits at a participating merchant’s location: You must present your Nine PBS offer before you make a purchase at a participating merchant. A merchant has the right to deny a discount if you do not present Nine PBS offer before payment.

Use of your Nine PBS benefits online:
You can access the benefits of Nine PBS online by visiting ninepbs.publicmediabenefits.com and signing in. Certain featured offers, online shopping benefits and other benefits will require registration. Other benefits may be available to any visitor. Nine PBS membership may not be required to take advantage of the online services. However, many services may be offered only to Members. Any visitor to Nine PBS is required to abide by the terms and conditions hereof.

Any use of Nine PBS or the associated Member benefits and discounts in a manner that violates the rules or regulations of any participating merchant or online partner is prohibited by this Agreement and is grounds for termination of your right to use the Nine PBS, and will result in a forfeiture of any savings, benefits and services. Augeo reserves the right to cancel your Member rights immediately in the event of such a violation.

4. Tracking Member Activity
Augeo uses various tracking technologies in conjunction with third party advertising affiliates. In most cases, the tracking used may require a cookie to be placed onto the Member’s computer. This is required in order to fully track the Member activity and to assure that the Member is credited for any completed application for a specified product or service. Members must have their browser enable cookies in order to part take in this discount program.

Augeo reserves the right to use your information for data gathering purposes. All information will be anonymous and we will not have access to any of your personal information. We cannot identify particular devices. You may opt out from using the site if you choose to do so.

5. Expiration and Cancellation
Your Nine PBS membership may be subject to expiration and cancellation at the discretion of Augeo following any breach of these Terms and Conditions by a Member, termination of a sponsor, or termination of a particular program. A Member will no longer be entitled to any discounts, benefits or rewards following the expiration or cancellation of a Nine PBS. Discounts, benefits and rewards not redeemed by the date that a Nine PBS is cancelled shall be forfeited.

If you have received a Nine PBS, the Bulk Partner may have enrolled you in this discount program and submitted your information to Augeo, but only after receiving authorization from you to do so. The Bulk Partner, not Augeo, is liable if the Bulk Partner failed to receive your consent. Once we receive your information, it will be governed by our privacy policy.
