  1. conditions that apply to your account

 

  1. Registering for Rewards: You must be 18 years of age before you can use our website to collect Rewards and you must live in an Active Country. You will need to register through our website or application and provide the Personal Information that we request from you. Any information you provide should be accurate and not untrue or misleading. You are solely responsible for ensuring that the information you provide (including bank or card details and e-mail addresses) remains up to date. If you change your details, please notify us as soon as possible. All our validly registered users shall be known as ‘Cardholders’ and upon completion of your registration you will be given a unique account number which you should keep secret.

 

    1.  Earning Rewards: Our programme allows you to receive Rewards on Qualifying Transactions whenever you fulfil the Redemption Conditions.
    2.  You expressly agree to authorise each and every one of our Transaction Verifiers to verify your purchase transactions for us, and provide us with such information, including in some cases, your historical transactions, so that we may provide the Reward services to you.

 

    1. For the purpose of this agreement you expressly agree that all Transaction Verifiers are not party to any transaction you make and are only required by us to verify your purchase transactions. You also agree that all Transaction Verifiers cannot and will not be held liable by you for any direct or indirect loss or damages which you may suffer for any reason, including but not limited to, merchants closing their businesses and not paying the monies due, or our own non-performance. Furthermore you expressly agree that all Transaction Verifiers are not in any way responsible for your Rewards.

 

    1. A “Qualifying Transaction” is one where we receive confirmation from a Transaction Verifier that a Cardholder’s transaction is genuine, has been successfully processed and can be tracked by our systems. Rewards will be paid at the agreed rates set by the Authorised Merchant or ourselves and whilst we take reasonable care to ensure all marketing and promotional Reward rates are accurate, we cannot be held responsible for any inaccuracies or variations to the published rate.

In the event that a Cardholder changes or receives an updated bank card, such that the 16-digit number or security information is altered, you must advise us as soon as possible. Failure to update this information will mean you are unable to claim Rewards until such time as our records are updated. In cases where your bank, or our service provider, provides us with your new card details you authorise us to replace the details in our system on your behalf. Please note that we cannot back-date Rewards in any circumstances and your Reward enabled card must be used at the time of purchase.

 

Snap cash Receipts Program : Where you have chosen to earn or claim Rewards as a result of our “ Snap cash receipts programme”, you agree that Rewards will only be awarded by us where you have uploaded a transaction receipt from an Authorised Merchant via our official mobile application or website and that receipt clearly shows details of the transaction you wish to register. You agree that the Authorised Merchant’s decision, or ours on their behalf, to decline, accept and/or pay Rewards on any receipt is final and binding.

Whenever you submit a receipt, the transaction will be marked as “Awaiting Verification.” “Awaiting Verification,” indicates that a process has begun to ensure that your receipt constitutes a Qualifying Transaction. If the receipt is found to match the conditions of a Qualifying Transaction it will then be marked as “Pending.” “Pending” means that we are awaiting payment from the Authorised Merchant, or affiliate. Once the Authorised Merchant has made payment the transaction will be marked as “Confirmed.” Once you meet the Redemption Conditions you have access to the applicable Reward. Receipts can take up to 14 days to pass to “Pending” status, and up to 30 days before they are marked as “Confirmed.”

 

    1. Reward Redemption & Our Fees:

 

      1. Once a Cardholder completes a Qualifying Transaction and we have received a Reward from the Authorised Merchant, we will display this Reward in the Cardholder’s account in a format which allows you to understand how far away from the Redemption Conditions you are. Once your Reward Balance meets the Redemption Conditions, the Rewards may be redeemed. Please ensure any personal and/or bank details you provide us are up to date and accurate as we cannot be held responsible for any delay or error in processing your Reward redemption as a result of out of date or incorrect information. Whilst we expect Reward redemption requests to be processed within 10 business days, please be aware that some requests may take longer due to internal checks and transfer timescales. You accept and authorise us to create an invoice, from you to us, for any Reward Redemptions you claim and to email you a copy of the same.

 

      1. Our Fees : When your Rewards are redeemed, you will receive the value of the total Rewards earned by you less any fees we have charged you for providing the Reward Services. These fees will be notified to you when you register for the Reward Services. Fees vary depending on they type of Reward claimed and will be notified to you, from time to time, on bee-one.co.in or our mobile apps or any other medium we decide on. We reserve the right to amend these fees at any time by giving you 30 days notice of such a change. You should be aware that any Reward generated by you has no cash value until such time as it meets the Redemption conditions and is validly redeemed in accordance with the terms of this Agreement. Furthermore, until the Rewards are redeemed the Rewards do not belong to you. For clarity, we do not hold your funds at any time. Any and all Rewards are owned by us at all times, and have no cash value, until you have achieved the Redemption Conditions and requested a Redemption.

 

    1. When we will not allow you to redeem a Reward : You will not be allowed to redeem a Reward where we have terminated (or are entitled to terminate) this Agreement in accordance with clause 6; you have not logged into your account in any consecutive 6 month period; the Reward was not generated as a result of a verifiable Qualifying Transaction; the transaction on which any Reward was due was reversed, refunded or cancelled by any party; or you terminate or close your account with us before redeeming all Rewards eligible for redemption. Where your Rewards are validly redeemed and then subsequently reversed or cancelled, we may claim the Reward back from you.

Reward Services and us: Neither beeone , (Company) or (Company’s) group, or connected companies are party to any of the transactions you make – Each Reward transaction is a separate contract made between you and the Authorised Merchant. As such, we do not have any liability in respect of the goods you’ve acquired from them, nor do we have any control or accept responsibility in relation to the quality or safety of these goods or whether the retailer is legally entitled to sell these goods to you. We recommend that you make suitable enquiries of any retailer before you commit to purchasing goods/services from them, whether online or in-store. We would highlight that the Reward Services consists of providing a website, mobile app and administration facility to assist your collection of Rewards.

Your agreement, in this context, includes the transaction details themselves but does not include any Personal Information necessary to identify you specifically as the Cardholder who transacted.

It can also generally analyse your spending information within its business.

They may do this themselves or instruct beeone as their loyalty provider to do this for them.

 

    1. Although we allow merchants to target communication with Cardholders using their Personal Information (such as sending a special message or offer on your birthday) we do not allow them to target Rewards based on your Transaction Information. All Cardholders have the same chance of receiving Rewards from all Authorised Merchants.

You authorise MasterCard to monitor transactions on your registered card(s) to identify qualifying purchases in order to determine whether you have qualified for or earned an offer linked to your payment card, and for MasterCard to share such transaction details with us to enable your card-linked offer(s) and target offers that may be of interest to you.
