Your participation in Live Search cashback (the "Program") on www.eBay.com is subject to the Microsoft Service Agreement terms at http://tou.live.com (the "Program Terms") and conditions plus the additional terms and conditions below. In the event of a conflict between these additional terms and the Program Terms, the terms below are controlling for your participation in the Program on www.eBay.com.

    1. You must successfully complete an eligible purchase on www.eBay.com using "Buy-It-Now" within sixty (60) minutes after you click on an eBay paid search advertisement marked with the Live Search cashback logo (such sixty (60) minute period shall be referred to herein as an "Online Session"). Please note, only www.eBay.com items that are "Buy-It-Now" enabled are eligible for Cashback Rewards. Your ability to earn Cashback Rewards will automatically expire upon expiration of the Online Session;

    2. You must pay for the eligible item using your PayPal account within the shorter of thirty (30) days of completing the purchase on www.eBay.com or the time frame specified by the seller. Please note, only www.eBay.com items that accept PayPal as a method of payment are eligible for Cashback Rewards;

    3. Cashback Rewards will apply only to the first eligible item you commit to buy on www.eBay.com during an Online Session. Cashback Rewards will not be applied to any additional items or purchases. A single listing with multiple items will be considered one item for the purposes of these terms and conditions. The following purchases on www.eBay.com are not eligible for Cashback Rewards ("Excluded eBay Purchases"):

      1. purchases that are completed on www.express.ebay.com or www.half.ebay.com;
      2. purchases of automobiles or other vehicles;
      3. purchases of real estate;
      4. purchases that are completed using a third party checkout system.

      If you attempt to complete any of the above Excluded eBay Purchases on www.eBay.com during an Online Session, eBay will notify you on the purchase review page of the "Buy-It-Now" transaction process that the purchase is not eligible. Please review the purchase review page carefully before you commit to buy. eBay may add or remove types of purchases to the list of Excluded eBay Purchases in its sole discretion from time to time. Please review these terms and conditions before you complete a purchase. www.eBay.com is the only eBay website that is participating in the Program; purchases on any other eBay website will not be eligible for Cashback Rewards;

    4. eBay does not limit purchases eligible for Cashback Rewards by the purpose for which they are acquired (e.g., purchases acquired for resale). The Cashback Rewards that you are eligible to obtain from Microsoft will be disclosed to you on www.eBay.com and will be equal to a percentage of the final sale price of the first item purchased during an Online Session (excluding shipping and handling fees, insurance fees and other such fees), for up to a maximum of $250.00 per Online Session. Cashback Rewards will be available in your Program account to transfer to your PayPal account approximately sixty (60) days of the date on which you complete your purchase on eBay.com. You must have a PayPal account in order to receive Cashback Rewards for purchases on www.eBay.com. You may not redeem any Cashback Rewards until you have earned a total of $5.00 in Cashback Rewards;

    5. After you complete an eligible purchase, before redeeming your Cashback Rewards, you must go to http://cashbackaccount.search.live.com/cashback/welcome.aspx and set up a Program account by providing all of the required information (or, if you already have an account, confirm your membership status). You must set up a Program account in accordance with the Program Terms to receive Cashback Rewards;

    6. You may receive Cashback Rewards for up to a maximum of three (3) Online Sessions per account on www.eBay.com. Once you have completed three (3) Online Sessions under any eBay.com account, you will no longer be eligible to receive Cashback Rewards for purchases made under such eBay.com account. If you have exceeded the limit of permitted Cashback Rewards, eBay will notify you on the purchase review page of the "Buy-It-Now" transaction process. Please review the purchase review page carefully before you commit to buy. Cashback Rewards can not be transferred or applied to multiple eBay.com accounts;

In order for your accounts to be deemed in good standing, you must not have a hold on either of your accounts and your accounts must not be suspended or past due when you pay for the item(s) you purchase;

    9. eBay may permit you to combine Cashback Rewards with other eBay promotions, coupons, or gift certificates (each, an "eBay Promotion") and may permit you to receive Cashback Rewards on purchases of gift cards or gift certificates. If eBay elects to do so, you will be provided with an opportunity to combine Cash Back Rewards with the eBay Promotion during the checkout flow on www.eBay.com.

    10. eBay provides Microsoft with limited information about your eligible purchase (such as the date, time, amount, and item description) when you apply for a Cashback Reward. Microsoft will use this information only to process and manage your Cashback Rewards, and not for any other purpose.
