By purchasing certain Products, the Participant will earn Product Points while by purchasing certain other Products, the Participant will earn Rebate Points. You cannot earn both Product Points and Rebate Points for the same Product.
“Product Points” mean Points that (a) are earned by submitting to the Site the Participant’s veterinarian receipt for the purchase applicable Products, and (b) can be redeemed on the Site for time-limited coupons for redemption at a veterinarian for an applicable Product within a specific period of time (a “Reward”).
“Rebate Points“ mean Points that (a) are earned by submitting to the Site the Participant’s veterinarian receipt for the purchase of applicable Products, and (b) can be redeemed on the Site for digital gift cards (the “Cards”).
Details about which Products qualify for Product Points and which Products qualify for Rebate Points, along with additional Terms that apply to earning and redeeming such Points, are set out here: Barks n Purrs club benefits page. Please note that such additional Terms may include restrictions on when Points can be earned or redeemed.
In order to earn Points, Participants must submit to the Site their veterinarian receipt for the purchase of applicable Products.

All Points redemptions are final and the Points will be deducted immediately from Participant’s account. 4. No exchange or refunds will be provided on any Reward. 5. Hand written receipts will not be accepted as proof of payment.
D. Points Value, Forfeiture of Points & Viewing Points
1. No Cash Value or Transferability. Points do not constitute property, do not entitle a Participant to a vested right or interest and have no cash value. As such, Points are not redeemable for cash, transferable or assignable for any reason, and are not transferable upon death, as part of a domestic relations matter or otherwise by operation of law. The sale or transfer of Points is strictly prohibited. Points may not be sold on any secondary market, and any transfer of Points to a secondary market shall be deemed void.
2. Points Expiration. At the beginning of each month Elanco will expire Points in any Participant’s account where Participant has been inactive from the Program for at least twelve (12) months. To maintain an active status and avoid Point expiration for such inactivity, a Participant must either take one (1) action to earn Points or take one (1) action to redeem Points. Upon termination of the Program or the termination of these Terms for any Participant, all Points shall immediately expire.
3. Accrued Points Viewable. The number of Points earned by each Participant will be tracked in the Participant’s account. However, each Participant will have the responsibility of ensuring that the Points are properly credited. Any claim for Points not credited accurately must be received by Elanco within seven (7) days of the date of claimed accrual of such Points. Manual issuance of Points can take up to fifteen (15) days. Elanco shall have no liability for any printing, production, typographical, mechanical or other errors in the Points summaries or Participant account. Elanco reserves the right to require proof of accrual of Points and Elanco reserves the right to delay the processing or redemption of any Points without prior notice to Participants in order to assure compliance with these Terms.

Fraudulent behavior includes but is not limited to any attempt to earn Points in a manner inconsistent with the Points earning activities described above in Section C. Examples of fraudulent behavior include but are not limited to creating multiple accounts for this Program. Without limiting any other remedies, Elanco may suspend or terminate a Participant’s account if Elanco suspects that a Participant has engaged in fraudulent activity in connection with the Program. Participation in the Program is subject to these Terms. Any failure to abide by these Terms, any conduct detrimental to Elanco, or any misrepresentation or fraudulent activities in connection with the Program may result, in addition to any rights or remedies available to Elanco in law or equity, in the termination of participation in the Program, as well as forfeiture of Points accrued to date.

Any attempt by a person to undermine the legitimate operation of the Program may be a violation of criminal and civil law, and, should such an attempt be made, Elanco may seek damages from any such person to the fullest extent permitted by law.
