18. Order of Precedence
This Agreement and any accepted successor Agreement governs your use of our Applications and our services as described herein. To the extent that any provision of this Agreement, or any supplemental agreement offered as
any part of any registration for additional Applications or services, conflicts with any provision of other agreements between you and My Search or any of its related or affiliated entities, the terms of the then-current Agreement, shall, as to the specific subject matter of this Agreement, take precedence over the conflicting term(s) of that other agreement
Except as otherwise provided in this Agreement, you shall not thereby be entitled to any refund or credit.

Web Savings From Ebates™.
Please read this Member Agreement (the "Agreement") carefully before enrolling as a member of the Ebates Shopping Discount Program (the "Program") or downloading Web Savings From Ebates™, a product of TopMoxie. This Agreement explains the terms and conditions governing membership in the Program (the "Program Terms and Conditions"), and it is your responsibility to read and understand them. By enrolling as a member in the Program (a "Member"), or by downloading, installing and/or utilizing Web Savings From Ebates™, you agree to be bound by the Program Terms and Conditions. Enrollment is defined as providing Ebates with your valid email address and a password to access your account with full understanding and agreement to the Program Terms and Conditions. Downloading, installing, and/or utilizing Web Savings From Ebates does not confer the status of "Member" of Ebates until the Web Savings From Ebates™ user completes the Enrollment process found at www.ebates.com. By agreeing to Ebates' terms and conditions, you also agree to the terms and conditions of Ebates' Web Savings From Ebates™ software provider TopMoxie. For TopMoxie's complete terms and conditions, please visit http://www.topmoxie.com/eula.htm. Participation in the Program and its benefits are offered at the discretion of Ebates, and Ebates has the right to change the Program Terms and Conditions, in whole or in part, at any time with or without notice.
1. You must be an individual, 18 years of age or older, with the full legal authority to agree to the terms of this Agreement.
2. Members must be human: no machines, scripts, or automated services may be used to accumulate any financial benefits derived from the use of Ebates. You may maintain only one account. Any duplicate accounts will be subject to cancellation.
3. The Program is only available via access to the Ebates Web site (http://www.ebates.com). You must have Internet access and an email address to be eligible to receive the privileges and benefits of membership. Ebates is not responsible for your inability to connect to the Internet, log into the Ebates Web site, or access your Ebates account.
4. By agreeing to these terms, you also agree not to 'spam' unknown individuals by sending them unwanted emails to solicit their membership at Ebates. Refusal to abide by this or any other rules may result in Ebates stripping you of referrals and/or canceling your membership.
Accrual of Discounts
5. Members will be credited, subject to the terms and conditions enumerated in this Agreement, a percentage of the net purchases made by you at one of the online merchants affiliated with Ebates (an "Affiliated Merchant"). The percentage will be enumerated on the Ebates Web site as it relates to each Affiliated Merchant. The net purchase is defined as the total amount paid to the merchant minus tax, gift wrapping, shipping, promotional credits, returns, cancellations, and transaction fees or as the Affiliated Merchant defines on their respective Web site and as is enumerated in their respective Affiliate Membership and/or Operating Agreement document, whichever is less. All Affiliated Merchant Membership and/or Operating Agreements as they relate to their affiliate or partner programs with Ebates and which reside on the Affiliated Merchant's respective Web sites are hereby incorporated into this Agreement by reference.
6. As a Member, purchases made through Ebates Affiliated Merchants will be deemed a "Qualified Purchase" and will be subject to earn a discount if and only if all of the following criteria are satisfied: 1) "Cookies", both first and third party (if applicable), must be enabled on your Web browser. 2) All potential Qualified Purchases must begin by clicking on the Affiliated Merchant's link that appears on the Ebates Web site and being successfully connected to the Affiliated Merchant's Web site based upon that click. Individuals who download Web Savings From Ebates may on occasion be excepted from the terms of section 6(2), as their browser will in some instances link directly to the merchant through the correct link. Web Savings From Ebates is only a shopping reminder service provided by Ebates; for reliability of tracking we recommend you start your shopping trip at the Ebates.com website. 3) Ebates may, at all times, route your click to a merchant site through specific links, in order to assure that the sale can be tracked correctly. Any alteration of these links will invalidate your sale, which will not be deemed a Qualified Purchase. All purchases must be started and completed in one shopping session within the Ebates shopping program. If you start a purchase, then complete it in a different session, you will be ineligible for a rebate.
7. Individuals who download Web Savings From Ebates but are not members of the Ebates web site must enroll as a Members of Ebates within six months from the Qualified Purchase that earned the discount in order to receive payment. During that time, individuals who download Web Savings From Ebates may activate their account and quality for payout at any time, provided said downloader enrolls from the computer where Web Savings From Ebates was installed on and from which the Qualified purchases were made, and provided user does not delete, alter, or block access to the cookie placed on that user’s machine in order to identify the user.
8. The determination of whether or not a purchase made through an Ebates Affiliated Merchant is a "Qualified Purchase" is at the sole discretion of Ebates. In the event that a Qualified Purchase commission is not paid to Ebates by the relevant Merchant, Ebates is not obligated to pay the associated Discount.
9. "Account Activation" is completed upon the making of a Qualified Purchase at any Ebates merchant site. In case of return or cancellation, Ebates retains the right to reverse account credit. Completed offers in the More Cash section of the site are not Qualified Purchases, and will not fulfill Account Activation.
10. Discounts awarded to Members are subject to adjustments for returns, cancellations, and other events. Such adjustments can be applied to Member accounts at any time by Ebates at its sole discretion. Should you disagree with any adjustments made to your account, your sole remedy is to withdraw from the Program.
11. You may be taxed on your accrual of discounts, depending on the amount of discounts you accrue and the tax laws of federal, state, and local jurisdictions. Ebates may choose to provide you with those notices on occasion. In all instances, you will be solely responsible for any and all tax liability arising out of your accrual or redemption of discounts.
12. The following purchases are not eligible for accrual or payment of discounts: Dell Computers: any purchase of Dell products and services in which the transaction is substantially completed by telephone or by a Dell salesperson, or in which the purchase is made at a different unit of Dell than clicked through from Ebates (e.g. a user clicks to Dell Home, but then at Dell clicks over to Dell Small Business and makes a purchase at Dell Small Business). Priceline.com: only purchases of airline tickets and hotel reservations qualify for a discount. Prescriptions from all merchants are not eligible as well, due to Federal/State laws and regulations. Monthly Deliveries, such as Wine-of-the-month clubs and Pet foods, are not eligible for a discount unless all months are paid for up front through Ebates. Gift Certificates that are purchased at any of our merchants, with the exception of Spa Wish, are also not eligible for a discount. Referral and affiliate revenues will not include a percentage of monies placed in member discount accounts resulting from a special promotion. Most purchases that are picked up at a warehouse or a store location do not qualify for a cash discount. Other exceptions may exist and change from time to time, and may be messaged at the Ebates web site.
13. It is your responsibility to check your account regularly to ensure that discounts have been properly credited and that your account balance is accurate. If you do not believe that a discount has been correctly credited to your account you must wait at least 30 days but no more than 90 days after completing a Qualifying Purchase to contact Ebates Customer Care. Furthermore, all discounts earned by Members are subject to review. Necessary adjustments may be applied to Member accounts at any time by Ebates at its sole discretion. If you do not agree to adjustments made to your account, your only recourse will be to terminate your membership in the Program. Ebates reserves the right to terminate any account for abusive or fraudulent activity, or if the Member is no longer reachable at the e-mail address provided.
14. Ebates is not responsible for changes to, or discontinuance of, any Affiliated Merchant, or any Affiliated Merchant withdrawal from the Program, or for any effect on accrual of discounts caused by such changes, discontinuance, or withdrawal. Ebates is not responsible for changes to, or discontinuance of, any special offer or coupon code at an Affiliated Merchant site. It is the Member's responsibility to make sure that all specials are valid. If you choose to use coupons and specials that are not listed on the Ebates site, we cannot guarantee that you will be eligible to receive an Ebates discount on your purchases.
15. Money earned through the referral program will be paid along with regular discounts. Continued payments of referral monies will be made at the sole discretion of Ebates.

I couldnt find the time to read the whole post here.
Certainly would never read the whole thing if I was downloading something and I doubt 9 out of 10 people would look at a page and a half of legaleze crap either.
Just another trick they use to get the download done.
Make a difference! Support your local Cancer Care providers.

Haiko what is your personal opinion on Napster. This is the way i see it:
Get paid when people subscribe.
Endorsed and pushed by music industry.
No adware, no shopping application.
People who download music using some other music services are getting sued by music industry.
Has adware bundled with it.
Should get a Napster AM or rep in here and explain it so affiliates can see Napster as a friend to affiliates and stop some misinformation being spread around here.
