Terms and Conditions
Updated August 11, 2019
Terms and Conditions
I (the client) understand that by accepting the services provided by EZ Deals that I/we are bound by the terms and conditions provided herein.
EZ Deals uses proprietary software to provide marketing campaigns to our clients. We do not sell or lease out any software to our clients.
Every campaign comes with custom-made images to help our client’s business with selling their specific products and services (our custom-tailored campaigns will work for any business that provides a service or sells a product).
1. Digital Marketing: EZ Deals will create a custom digital marketing campaign based on our client’s specific needs.
a) Digital Interactive Campaigns. EZ Deals creates digital interactive campaigns with the odds of winning controlled by our clients. Our campaigns include scratch, slot machines, spinning wheels and our classic design. Our campaigns are fun and interactive. The prizes are digital coupons and are generally discounts, giveaways (i.e. client branding coupons, movie tickets, vacation trips, third party gift cards, certificates, free merchandise, etc.). Our client determines the number of prizes and the odds of winning offered in any given promotion. The number of pricing / odds has seven options for the spinning wheel, up to six options for the slot machine and the scratch campaigns and one option for the classic campaign. When a consumer wishes to redeem their digital coupon, then our client must validate (i.e. If you receive a new credit/debit card in the mail, you will need to activate it in order to use it). Our EZ Deals widget validation process activates the customer (consumer’s) digital coupon and it will be ready to use.
b) Digital Loyalty Rewards Programs. EZ Deals provides two different digital loyalty rewards options. One acts like a punch/stamp card and the other is a “frequent buyer” points program.
c) Electronic Stampers. This is a physical device programmed for validating the winning prize (digital coupon) on the consumer’s smartphone and validating the EZ Deals digital loyalty reward programs.
d) NFC (Near-Field Communication) Hardware.
EZ Deals have available two NFC devices: 1) A digital business card as a key tag containing the NFC circuitry. This can be conventionally attached to a keychain. 2) An adhesive sticker containing the NFC circuitry that can be stuck to any suitable surface, and is typically attached to campaign advertising posters.
NFC (Near Field Communications) hardware enables compatible devices to transmit information over short distances. With this technology, one device transmits information while the other receives it. Our NFC devices enable the instant transfer of information traditionally found on conventional printed business cards, to suitable smartphones and other devices, simply by bringing them into close proximity. The transmitted digital business card should of course include all of your important internet links and of course a link to your EZ Deals campaign!
Our NFC stickers and keycards also feature your unique printed campaign QR code, allowing use with virtually all smartphones and devices.
e) Beacons – Beacons allow users to push ads to those within a certain distance. Beacons leave a cookie on the devices of mobile device users in proximity to the beacon and ads will appear via one of more than 150 apps. NOTE: On December 6th, 2018, Google ended its support of the Nearby Notify program. This has created a lag in the time this information is delivered. Beacons are from a third-party vendor and are leased to EZ Deals clients. EZ Deals is not responsible for changes in technology related to the beacons. In case the EZ Deals client has their own mobile app, the results will be in real time integrating these two.
NOTICE TO CLIENTS: WE ONLY ACCEPT PAYMENT VIA THE EZ DEALS ONLINE ORDER FORM. IF ANYONE ASKS YOU TO PAY BY CASH OR CHECK, CONTACT US IMMEDIATELY. With paying anyone else other than through our online order form, you may lose your funds as well as the custom campaign / hardware ordered.
All prices are subject to change without notice at any time unless the EZ Deals client has signed an agreement with us.

We have additional discount options to pay for 6 months up front and receive 1 month free for a total of 7 months. (one-time opportunity option). This will become a month to month automatically, unless EZ Deals receives a put-on-hold notice ($50 monthly upon receiving back all hardware) or a cancellation notice from the client via email 3 business days prior to the due date.
MOST POPULAR OPTION: Pay for 12 months up front and receive 3 months free for a total of 15 months (also a one-time opportunity option). This will become a month to month automatically, unless EZ Deals receives a put-on-hold notice ($50 monthly upon receiving back all hardware) or a cancellation notice from the client via email 3 business days prior to the due date. Any additional updates to the client’s campaign are charged at the hourly rate of $59 for utilizing our creative department or $79 for utilizing our developers for any additional programming to our client’s website and social media pages (i.e. campaign gift card / poster and URL integrations, etc.).
II. Our digital campaign is also considered a landing page and interactive website all in one with a stand-alone URL. No mobile app is needed for any users/consumers to utilize the campaign. Our custom designed campaigns are created uniquely and specifically for each of our EZ Deals clients’ individual needs.
III. URL encoding is the practice of translating unprintable characters or characters with special meaning within URLs to represent something that is unambiguous and universally accepted by web browsers and servers. These characters include ASCII control characters, unprintable characters typically used for output control. This unique URL is created for each campaign only. Additional locations will require their own URL and will be an additional charge.
IV. A digital poster is created for each campaign so that our client can print it out in any size to create campaign awareness and use (i.e. wall/window poster, menu item, website special, etc.)
V. A QR Code (short for “quick response” code) is a type of barcode that contains a matrix of dots. It can be scanned using a QR scanner or a smartphone with a built-in camera…for example, scanning a QR Code with your phone might open a URL in your phone’s web browser. This unique QR Code is created for each campaign only. Additional locations will require their own QR Code and will be an additional charge.
VI. The background image is created for the home page of the classic and scratch campaigns. Utilizing the NFC hardware technology like a digital business card, the client can share their BIO or About Us page instantly.
VII. The social media images are 2 different images in size. The bigger image is for the EZ Deals client to place within their website header attaching their campaign URL which becomes viewable on each page so each visitor (consumer) can click on the image to get involved with the campaign. The smaller image is always used for Facebook. If or when requested by the EZ Deals client, this image will be seen on every consumers’ Facebook timeline since they must share their winnings before they are able to redeem their coupon. The EZ Deals client must also add one of those images into their email signatures, attaching their campaign URL. If the EZ Deals client expects a Return on Investment (ROI) guarantee they MUST follow everything mentioned in point VII.
VIII. EZ Deals provides a Validation Widget for our EZ Deals clients in order to receive analytics and statistics when consumers fill out information. The client will enter the URL provided in the web browser, to take them to the Validation Page: https://www.validationwidget.com/?l=7600 and then will put in their unique code. We require each client to fill in their own made-up code on the EZ Deals order form for each campaign/location. Validation is necessary to receive accurate analytics of their Return on Investment and to help prevent fraud.
IX. The flyer pad image can be printed out (just like the poster image in point IV). This will work best for e-commerce and take out/to go businesses as well as anyone wanting to advertise their business products and services. Sometimes EZ Deals will give FREE sample flyer pads as a special promotion to our EZ Deals clients.
X. The analytics will be received by the EZ Deals client each time the consumer/customer shares their winning (prize) on their Facebook timeline, or fills out the custom questionnaire requested by our EZ Deals client. Every time there is a validation, our EZ Deals client will receive validation notifications via email. For more analytics options, please contact EZ Deals directly. Unless the EZ Deals client requests access to their own statistics, they will not receive the monthly statistic reports. If requested, the statistics will be received monthly from EZ Deals before or on the 15th of each month for the prior month.
