about_ARTISTS Loyalty Program TERMS AND CONDITIONS
Welcome to the about_ARTISTS Program! Your participation in the about_ARTISTS Program (“Program”) is subject to the following. PLEASE READ THESE about-face about_ARTISTS Program TERMS & CONDITIONS (“TERMS”) CAREFULLY TO PARTICIPATE IN THE PROGRAM.
ELIGIBILITY AND PROGRAM ENROLLMENT
Membership & Eligibility
This free Program is offered by about-face Inc. (“about-face”, “our”, “us” or “we”) to customers of the about-face online store at www.about-face.com (“Store”) who have signed in to have an account at the Store. To have an online account at the Store and participate in the Program you must be a resident of the United States or other countries where about-face ships products (as specified in the “Do you ship to my country” FAQ available here) and meet the requirements described in the about-face Terms of Service.
The Program is available to about-face account holders for their personal use only and is limited to one account using a single email address per individual. In the event of a dispute over the identity of a about-face account holder, the about-face account holder will be deemed to be the authorized account holder of the email address submitted for purposes of opening the about-face account. For purposes of these Terms, 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. The Program may not be used for any business or commercial purpose.
You should review these Terms and the related policies and FAQs to understand the terms and conditions that apply to the Program as they may change from time to time at about-face’s sole discretion.
You will have the option to access certain Program benefits and rewards by providing us with your birthday and mailing address, but providing such information is optional. You are solely responsible for maintaining the accuracy of your account information and for updating it as required. You may update your personal information on the Store.
about_ARTISTS TIERS; HOW TO EARN AND REDEEM POINTS
Benefits; Spend Per Month
The Program features three tiers: “ENTHUSIAST,” “FANATIC,” and “ARTIST” (each, a “Tier”). Each Tier offers different benefits, which may be modified by about-face in its sole discretion from time to time (“Benefits”). The type, amount, timing and availability of such Benefits will be defined by about-face in its sole discretion. Tiers are achieved based on qualifying Store Merchandise purchases made every three months (“Spend Per Every three months”).
Your Spend Per Three Months will be calculated commencing on the later of the launch of the Program or the date when you become a about-face account holder. Your Spend Per Three Months will then reset to zero on the first anniversary if you do not make any subsequent qualifying purchase during those past three months, or will reset to zero on each anniversary of your last qualifying purchase.
While your spending resets every three months after your last qualifying purchase, your Tier status is determined by the amount you spent on qualifying purchases in the prior 3 months of membership. Your status in a particular Tier is good for the upcoming three months in which you qualify for that Tier, unless you make subsequent qualifying purchases that qualify for the next Tier. For example, if you spend $75 in the Store on March 2023, you will be in the FANATIC Tier for the remaining three months (until July 1st), unless you make subsequent purchases during that period of time that qualify for the next Tier (ARTIST). After that, you will need to spend enough on qualified purchases to qualify for that Tier every three months. If you do not qualify again for FANATIC or ARTIST Tier, you will return to the ENTHUSIAST Tier, which is where every about-face account holder participating in the Program begins.
About-face may, in its sole discretion, limit or modify the Tier rules, regulations, benefits, eligibility for membership, or any other feature of a particular Tier or may terminate or add Tiers at any time in its sole discretion, without prior notice except as expressly set out in these Terms or required by applicable law. About-face may at its sole discretion offer promotions or other opportunities from time to time to members of one or more Tiers to allow such members to earn more points or to maximize the benefits of redeeming points by meeting other about-face requirements (for example, participating in “Bonus Points Events” or other exclusive events). Not all offers are available to all members in each Tier. About-face will post information in the Store or through other media (e.g., marketing communications, email, social media, etc.).
about_ARTISTS Tiers: ENTHUSIAST, FANATIC, & ARTIST
ENTHUSIAST Tier. When you become an about-face account holder, you will automatically be placed in the ENTHUSIAST Tier. Subject to these Terms, you will remain in the ENTHUSIAST Tier indefinitely unless you meet the Spend Per every three months required to achieve the benefits of the FANATIC or ARTIST Tiers.
ARTIST Tier. A about-face account holder will receive the benefits of the FANATIC Tier as soon as such customer qualifies for it by meeting the required Spend every three months within the current calendar year and maintains that level status for the following three months. Upon expiration of the last three months, that customer will be required to requalify for the ARTIST Tier on a monthly basis. The Spend Per Three Months required to qualify for the ARTIST Tier at the launch of the Program is $150. about-face reserves the right to raise or lower this Spend Per three months threshold to join the ARTIST Tier in its sole discretion without prior notice except as expressly set out in these Terms or required by applicable law.
ARTIST Tier. A about-face account holder will receive the benefits of the about-face Tier as soon as such customer qualifies for it by meeting the required Spend every three months within the current calendar year and maintains that level status for the following three months. Upon expiration of that calendar year, that customer will be required to requalify for the ARTIST tier on a monthly basis. The Spend Per three months required to qualify for theARTIST Tier at the launch of the Program is $150. About-face reserves the right to raise or lower this Spend Per three months threshold to join the ARTIST Tier in its sole discretion without prior notice except as expressly set out in these Terms or required by applicable law.
Under the Program, all three Tiers of membership will have one point credited to their about_ARTISTS account for every US dollar spent in the Store (a “Point”).
You may collect Points by purchasing Merchandise in the Store. To have Points credited to you under the Program, you must make your purchase while signed in to your about-face account. All purchases made prior to the launch of the Program or while not signed in your about-face account are not eligible for Points.
Bonus Point Events
Occasionally, about-face may offer bonus Points or other exclusive events, savings or opportunities to earn bonus Points (e.g., 3x Points per $1 spent) to selected about-face account holders of one or more Tiers (“Bonus Point Events”). Participating in such Bonus Point Events will allow about-face account holders to earn Points for the purchase of certain Merchandise at the Store, or in connection with shopping days where enrolled customers may earn a set amount of bonus Points for shopping that day.
Separate or additional terms and conditions may apply to such Bonus Points Events and will be communicated to you by email or social media prior to the event. Bonus Points are subject to the following exceptions: (1) If a about-face account holder purchases a about-face product during a Bonus Point Event and the selected Merchandise comes with an additional, free product, bonus Points will not be issued on the retail value of the free product; (2) If a about-face account holder redeems Points towards the purchase of a Bonus Points Event-promoted about-face product and pays a portion of the retail price after the Points redemption, the about-face account holder will receive bonus Points on the remaining retail amount paid by the about-face account holder after the Points were redeemed; and (3) If a about-face account holder redeems Points towards the purchase of a bonus Point product in an amount equal to the full price of the Bonus Point Event-product, the about-face account holder will not earn any bonus Points.
Additional Ways to Earn Points
From time to time, about-face may offer additional ways to earn Points on non-purchase activities in accordance with additional terms and conditions that will be communicated by about-face via email to selected about-face account holders in one or more Tiers and in selected geographies.
Merchandise and Rewards
For purposes of collecting Points under the Program, "Merchandise" or the value of merchandise in these Terms includes all about-face products sold at the Store, except for “gifts with purchase” or other sample size or promotional merchandise. Merchandise also excludes any payment for e-gift cards, gift cards, taxes, shipping costs and other excluded charges and/or purchases as specified by about-face from time-to-time (e.g., no Points are earned when purchasing about-face Mini Sets or other sample size or promotional Merchandise).
By participating in the Program you will receive Benefits according to your Tier and you will have the opportunity to redeem your Points for rewards made available by about-face from time to time in its sole discretion at the Store (“Rewards”). You are eligible to redeem Points for a Reward if you have enough Points in your about_ARTISTS Account for that specific Reward. The retail value of a Reward does not count toward about-face's free shipping threshold. Rewards can only be redeemed in the Store and may only be shipped to addresses in the US and other countries where about-face ships Merchandise at the time of redemption.
You should be aware that due to the limited nature of Rewards, about-face may be unable to reship Rewards if they arrive damaged, if you receive the wrong one or if one is missing from your order. Further, certain Rewards will be only available on limited quantities and while supplies last and may only be offered for specific periods of time and in selected geographies, in which case about-face reserves the right to make substitutions at its sole discretion.
You are not required to redeem your accumulated Rewards and/or Benefits.
about_ARTISTS Points Restriction
The Points have no cash value and are non-transferable, and you have no property rights in or to Rewards or other Program Benefits. Points can only be redeemed for Rewards and Points are not redeemable for cash.about-face may, in its sole discretion, allow Points to be redeemed for other benefits or items of Merchandise from time to time, for another product, for gift cards or for e-gift certificates or be used as payment. about-face also reserves the right to substitute Rewards without prior notice.
Purchase balances credited to your about_ARTISTS Account will be decreased or reversed, as applicable, if all or part of the purchase of Merchandise is returned or canceled, or if the credit is obtained through fraudulent or other activity that violates these Terms or the about-face Terms of Service (including purchases that appear to be placed by unauthorized dealers, resellers or distributors, as determined by about-face in its sole discretion).about-face is not responsible for Rewards lost or redeemed due to fraudulent activity by you or any third party. about-face is not responsible for Rewards that are lost, stolen or otherwise destroyed. The sale, barter, transfer, or assignment of any Rewards or Benefits offered through the Program, other than by us, is expressly prohibited.

You will have one year to redeem your Points after your last activity in your about-face account. You may prevent the expiration of Points by purchasing qualifying Merchandise.

about_ARTISTS Merchandise Discount Rewards
A about_ARTISTS Merchandise Discount Reward is an instant discount applied to the purchase price of Merchandise available to all about-face account holders in exchange for redemption of Points (In U.S. Dollars)
The about_ARTISTS Merchandise Discount Rewards may be used for the purchase of Merchandise online (with a shipping address in the U.S., Canada and other countries where about-face ships Merchandise). about_ARTISTS Merchandise Discount Rewards cannot be applied to gift card purchases, product replenishment programs, previous purchases, gift wrapping, packaging, taxes, or shipping and handling charges. Only one about_ARTISTS Merchandise Discount Reward can be applied per purchase transaction.
Return of Merchandise purchased with a about_ARTISTS Merchandise Discount Reward will be for the price actually paid after applying the about_ARTISTS Merchandise Discount Reward. The Points deducted from your about_ARTISTS account will not be refunded.
about_ARTISTS Merchandise Discount Rewards must be used on a single transaction and any remaining balance will be lost and void. If you apply a about_ARTISTS Merchandise Discount Reward to the purchase of Merchandise with a lower price than the about_ARTISTS Merchandise Discount Reward, the balance of such about_ARTISTS Merchandise Discount Reward will be void and will not be carried in your about_ARTISTS Account. For example, if you use a $10 off about_ARTISTS Merchandise Discount Reward to purchase a about-face product with a price of $7, the $3 outstanding balance will be void.
THE about_ARTISTS MERCHANDISE DISCOUNT REWARDS ARE NOT CASH OR ANY OTHER LEGAL TENDER. THE about_ARTISTS MERCHANDISE DISCOUNT REWARDS HAVE NO CASH VALUE WITHOUT A PURCHASE AT THE about-face STORE. THE about_ARTISTS MERCHANDISE DISCOUNT REWARDS MAY NOT BE ALTERED, SOLD, BARTERED OR TRANSFERRED. The about_ARTISTS Merchandise Discount Reward is applied last to your purchase after all other about_ARTISTS promotional discounts have been applied. about_ARTISTS Merchandise Discount Rewards cannot be used on any other promotional offers, discounts or Rewards. The about_ARTISTS Merchandise Discount Rewards are subject to change, alteration, or termination by about-face iin its sole discretion at any time.
about_ARTISTS Birthday Gift Benefit
If you share your birthday with us, you will receive a birthday gift in the form of a one-time discount on a qualifying Merchandise purchase during your birthday month (“Birthday Gift”). About-face will send you an email to the email address in your about-face account with your unique promotional code on the first day of your birthday month.
To redeem your Birthday Gift in the Store, you must sign into your about-face Account. YOU WILL NEED TO EFFECT A MERCHANDISE PURCHASE DURING YOUR BIRTHDAY MONTH TO CLAIM YOUR BIRTHDAY GIFT AT CHECKOUT. There is a limit of one Birthday Gift per about-face account holder per year, and Birthday Gifts cannot be transferred, combined with any other offers or discounts, applied to prior purchases, or applied to gift card purchases. The Birthday Gift Benefit is subject to change, alteration, or termination by about-face at its sole discretion at any time.
EFFECT OF STORE ORDER CANCELLATION
Because all Rewards redeemed online are shipped with Merchandise orders, if you cancel an item from your order and that cancellation drops your Points balance below the required Points required to redeem the Reward, you will still receive the Reward as long as other Merchandise is being shipped. It is possible that your about_ARTSITS Account reaches a negative balance if you do not have enough Points in your about_ARTISTS account because of the canceled item. If your entire order is canceled by you, the Reward(s) will not ship because a Merchandise purchase is required, and the redeemed Points will be re-credited to your about_ARTISTS Account. Redeemed Points will be re-credited if an order is canceled by about-face.
COMMUNICATIONS WITH about-face; HOW TO OPT OUT
By opening a about-face account you agree to receive advertising, marketing materials and other communications from about-face, including Program emails.
