INTERSPORT is the biggest medium-sized mail order business group in worldwide sports retail. Under, 5800 locations in 65 countries are united under the umbrella of the IIC-Intersport International Corporation GmbH, the purchasing and management corporation of the Intersport group. In 2014 they generated a turnover of EUR 10,5 billion. With market shares of around 36% in Germany and over 20% in Europe the IIC GmbH is the world leader in sports retail.
Like numerous other renowned companies, INTERSPORT Germany was listed at Cashback World with its own company partner ID. The fact that they only were voucherpartners was hardly ever mentioned. Only a few people would recognise that this circumstance did not permit the use of the INTERSPORT logo under trade mark law.
Upon request the following was notified by the INTERSPORT headquarters:
E-Mail (recieved) from 10-01-2018
„There has never a cooperation between the INTERSPORT Germany eG and the Lyoness Europe AG. Also the Lyoness Europe AG was not authorized to use the INTERSPORT logo under trade mark law. After you pointed this out we stopped selling INTERSPORT vouchers tot he Lyoness Europe AG. Due to an injunctive relief the INTERSPORT logo is not longer displayed by Lyoness.“

Time and again, it has shown, that several affiliates obviously are on the Lyoness management board’s pay roll. Also, the continuos denials of renowned companies are illustrating clearly, how low the revenue at Lyoness (Cashback World) must be.
If these enormous turnovers actually existed, large high-revenue companies would certainly be willing to be listed at myWorld/Lyoness (Cashback World).
