This page sets out the terms and conditions (the “Agreement”) for using the latestdeals.lk website (the “Website”), which is run by FlipBox (Hela Solutions Pvt Ltd). Please be aware that by joining the Website and participating in the community you agree to abide by the Agreement.
In order to cover the costs of running the Website we have relationships with various retailers and merchants. These retailers may pay us a commission for the sales we generate or a fixed fee for the banners we have placed on the Website. We allow members of the Website to share any acceptable content, regardless of whether or not we earn a commission. Also, note that we don’t advertise things that we do not recommend.
latestdeals.lk is not the seller or supplier of, and does not endorse, any of the goods or services that are featured on the Website. We therefore do not have any of the legal obligations that apply to the sellers of those goods or services.
This means that we have no control over or responsibility for:
Everyone using the Website should exercise no lesser degree of caution in entering into transactions with retailers than they would when entering into a similar transaction elsewhere.
We aim to provide accurate information (whether it be a deal, competition, freebie, voucher or something else) but often our content is user generated, crowd-sourced and/or sometimes based on speculation or limited details. We do not claim to always accurately represent the intentions or specifics of an offer from a third party, nor do we claim any association with third parties. Whilst we may attempt to verify an offer with a third party directly, you should assume that the offers on latestdeals.lk haven’t been verified. When you visit a third party from latestdeals.lk you should not rely on the content provided by latestdeals.lk. Instead please read and rely on the information provided by the third party directly. One of the reasons behind this section of the terms and conditions is that we do not want our visitors and members to feel discontent towards a third party due to something misleading on latestdeals.lk. Please always check, and then double-check, with the terms and details of any offer or promotion with the third party directly.
As it is our community that drives the Website forward we want to do our best to reward people for being active members. To do this, we’ve created a system where people can earn rewards – points and potentially commission – for the content they share on the Website.
We want to make it very clear that the rewards system is dynamic and may well change over time. To this end, we want everyone to clearly understand the following:
The rewards are subject to change. We don’t guarantee any specific reward and we may add or remove a reward at any time. The threshold to obtain rewards may also change.
With specific respect to commission, we update this as often and as accurately as we can but there may be times when this is inaccurate and we need to manually adjust the amount due. This could be for various reasons, such as the retailer failing to pay latestdeals.lk, a mistake on the retailer’s behalf or a change in their own terms and conditions which prevents payment. On a positive note, a manual adjustment to commission could be an increment as well as a decrement. We would like to make it very clear that we do not guarantee payment of any reward (including commission) but hope that our track record of successfully paying out speaks to our intention to always do so when we can.
Hopefully it would never come to this but we reserve the right to suspend or terminate any member’s account (including the removal of any points and/or commission) if, in our reasonable view, the member appears to be in breach of any provision of this Agreement.
It is each member’s responsibility to ensure that:
