Introduction

The following Terms and Conditions control your participation in the UAB TouchPoints II program. You agree that you have read and understand this Agreement ("Agreement") and that your participant status in the UAB TouchPoints II program (the "Program") shall be subject to the following Terms and Conditions between you (the "Participant") and University Hospital ("UAB").

Earning TouchPoints

Participants registering in the Program will earn 10,000 "TouchPoints" for each successful whole blood donation or 20,000 for each platelet or ALYX donation made in the University Hospital Donation Center or during a University Hospital Blood Drive. Clinical guidelines will determine how often blood donations can take place. Blood donations made at other sites or during other blood drives will not be eligible for earning TouchPoints. TouchPoints will expire at the end of the 3rd calendar year following the calendar year the points are earned (i.e., TouchPoints earned after May 2010 will can be redeemed through December 2013).

Redeeming TouchPoints

After 4 successful donations, earning a total of 40,000 TouchPoints, participants may redeem a $100 Marriott card or a $100 Discover card. TouchPoints must be redeemed by the end of the TouchPoints II program in December 2013.

AT ANY TIME EITHER PARTICIPANT OR UAB MAY TERMINATE PARTICIPANT''S STATUS WITH OR WITHOUT CAUSE. PARTICIPANT'S RIGHT TO USE PARTICIPANT''S STATUS IMMEDIATELY CEASES UPON TERMINATION AND PARTICIPANT''S UNREDEEMED TOUCHPOINTS SHALL BE CANCELLED.

TouchPoints have no cash value; TouchPoints are not transferable in any instance or circumstance. TouchPoints may not be bartered or sold. UAB reserves the right to change at any time without prior notification of the Participant, the number of TouchPoints required to achieve any of its rewards, the actual rewards themselves, or any other aspect of the reward program. Certain restrictions may apply to certain rewards.

Participant must accrue the required amount of TouchPoints before he or she can be eligible to redeem any reward offered on the UAB web site.
