Cashback Terms of Service
Last updated: January 10, 2023
These Cashback Terms of Service govern your use of the Cashback feature offered by Opera Norway AS (“Opera” and “we”, “us” and “our”). The Cashback feature is a rewards program made available only to users in qualifying countries. By enabling and using the Cashback feature to shop for goods and services offered by our participating online merchants, you can earn rewards redeemable for cash or other rewards (“Rewards”). Please read this document carefully.
Eligibility. To use the Cashback feature, you must be at least 18 years old, have full legal capacity, provide us with your e-mail address and set up a password. If you are not 18 years old and/or you don’t have a full legal capacity you must have your parent or legal guardian’s permission to use the Cashback feature. Please have your parent or legal guardian read these terms with you. If you are a parent or legal guardian, and you allow your charge to use the Cashback feature then these terms apply to you and you are responsible for use of the Cashback feature by your charge.
You will need an Opera Account. If you do not already have one, you will need to create an Opera Account. Within your Opera Account you must then enable the Cashback feature. The Opera Account Service terms are available here.
Shop to earn Rewards. You can earn rewards when purchasing goods or services from participating online merchants (“Participating Merchants”) as may be made available at https://cashback.opera.com (“Website”). Opera provides you only with the Cashback feature described herein. Opera does not sell any goods or services.
a. The Reward that can be earned will vary depending on the Participating Merchant and the good or service purchased. The current Reward, or “Cashback” rates, are available on the Website. The Reward may be changed, suspended or terminated by Opera and/or by the Participating Merchants at any time before your purchase.
b. Your right to a Reward accrues only for confirmed transactions. The transaction is “confirmed” only if and when: (i) the purchase is made from your active Cashback feature account, is completed, and the payment is done; (ii) you did not withdraw from or revoke the purchase within the period specified by the Participating Merchant; (iii) the Participating Merchant confirms the transaction and Opera is able to attribute the transaction to your Opera Account; (iv) the Participating Merchant has paid Opera; and (v) the transaction has the ‘confirmed’ status on your Cashback feature account.
c. In your Cashback feature account you will be able to, among other things, check your purchase history and transaction status to know if you have a right to redeem Rewards.
Rewards must be redeemed. You will not collect any money on your Cashback feature account. Rather, the Rewards you have earned must be redeemed as described below.
a. You need to have an active payment account established with a payment service provider, bank, and/or other partner who cooperates with Opera for purposes of redeeming your Rewards (“Payment Services Provider’’). The current list of participating Payment Services Providers is available on the Website. In order to redeem Rewards, you must link your Payment Services Provider with your Cashback feature account via the QR code or other method and the Payment Services Provider’s software application.
b. Provided that you have paired your account with a Payment Services Provider as described above, Opera will redeem your Rewards to your account with the Payment Services Provider automatically. Rewards will be redeemed up to 14 days after your confirmed transactions. Please note that in certain countries there might be a minimal redeemable sum, as indicated on the Website.
c. The settlement currency is the official currency of the country in which the Cashback feature is offered. If You purchase goods or services, or Participating Merchants settle their payments, in a different currency, applicable exchange rates and fees may apply. Opera does not charge any fees for currency conversion.
d. Your Reward from a transaction will expire 12 months after the date such transaction is confirmed.

f. Rewards are not redeemable if Opera determines in its sole discretion that: (i) you have abused IT systems to create fictitious transactions, take ownership of someone else’s transactions, or affect the integrity, confidentiality, or availability of the Cashback feature data in any way; (ii) you attempted to circumvent any of the security mechanisms of the Cashback feature; (iii) you used third-party software or an ad-blocker, or changed the affiliation of transactions; or (iv) you did not conclude the transaction via the Website..

Your right to redeem Rewards will expire upon termination. Termination of these Cashback Terms does not affect your use of other Services provided by Opera and the general Terms of Service will still apply to your use of such other Services.
