You are solely responsible for all activities that occur under your Account and for maintaining the security of your log-in credentials.

If your User ID(s) are compromised, you agree to immediately inform Company. Do not disclose your log-in credentials to any third party for any reason. Company will not be liable for any loss or damage of any kind arising from a Member’s failure to comply with the requirements of this paragraph or any Member responsibilities under the Program Rules.
In the event of a dispute over the identity of a Member, the Member will be deemed to be the authorized account holder of the e-mail address identified at the time of enrollment into the Rewards Program. “Authorized account holder” is defined as the natural person who is assigned to an e-mail address by an Internet Access Provider, online service provider, or other organization (e.g., business, educational institute, social sharing site) that is responsible for assigning e-mail addresses for the domain associated with the applicable e-mail address.
4. PARTICIPATION AND EARNING POINTS
Once a Member has successfully completed the enrollment process, and, if necessary, has been verified, he/she/they may begin earning points (“Points”) through participation in the Program by engaging in or achieving certain specified qualifying tasks and activities (each, a “Qualifying Activity”). Actions taken prior to enrollment and/or actions that are not specified in the Terms as Qualifying Activities are not eligible to earn Points, unless otherwise specified in writing by Company. For each Qualifying Activity completed, the Member will receive a pre-determined and pre-announced number of Points (“Point Value”), as determined by Company in its sole discretion. Company reserves the right to add or delete Qualifying Activities and/or change the number of Points that may be awarded for any activity at any time, with or without notice, in its sole and absolute discretion; please check back frequently to see what new Qualifying Activities or promotions may be offered.
A. Initial Product Registration (400 points):
Each new Member’s first Qualifying Activity, after successful enrollment, must be the purchase and registration of McCormick’s The TEN product (“The TEN” or “the Qualifying Product”); Member must then scan the QR code located on The TEN’s packaging, which will open the App so that you can sign into your Flavor Maker Flavor Profile Account and follow the instructions to successfully register The TEN product. If you do not already have a Flavor Maker Flavor Profile Account, or if you have not downloaded the Flavor Maker App, scanning the QR code will direct you to first complete these steps. Once you have downloaded the App and successfully registered, you will receive an award of four hundred (400) points, which will be automatically added to your Rewards Program account. Limit one (1) The TEN product registration per Member.
B. Additional Qualifying Activities:

Successfully clicking or tapping the Button will automatically add ten (10) points to your Rewards Program account. Limit ten (10) Button Rewards Program entries via the I Made It Recipe Feature, for a maximum of one hundred (100) Button points per Rewards Program member.
Company reserves the right, in its sole discretion and at any time during the duration of this Rewards Program, to change the number of Points awarded, or to award no Points, for any particular Qualifying Activity, to offer additional or new Qualifying Activities for a limited time or permanently, to delete any or all means to earn Points, to limit the number of times a Member may earn Points for engaging in a Qualifying Activity or engaging in the activity during a specific time period, or to offer Points-earning opportunities to select groups of Members. Points are non-transferable, have no cash value, and may not be sold or assigned or exchanged for any value.
