II. Terms of Sale
By placing an order, you make an offer to Company to purchase the voucher you have selected on the terms and conditions stated below. If Company is unable to process your payment, Company will notify you by email. You will be given one (1) business day from time of notification to fix the problem. If you are unable to remedy the problem and Company cannot process payment within one (1) business day from notification, Company will cancel the order. No charge will be made to your account and you will not have purchased the offer.
You are required to create an account in order to purchase any product. This is required so Company can provide you with easy access to print your orders, view your past purchases, modify your preferences, and to ensure permissible use of the product.
The voucher (“Voucher”) you purchase is redeemable for goods or services by the seller of such goods and services (“Merchant”) or participating restaurant (“Restaurant”). The Merchant and Restaurant, not Company, is the seller of the goods and services. Company sells a Voucher on behalf of the Merchant or Restaurant that can be redeemed in connection with your purchase of the goods or services from Merchant or Restaurant.
1. GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR ALL COMPANY PRODUCTS
All Vouchers printed from the Site or any website associated with Company are promotional vouchers that are offered to customers below their face value and shall be subject to the terms and conditions of Company and the participating Restaurant or Merchant. The Merchant or Restaurant is the seller of the goods or services which you are purchasing.
The holder and issuer of a Voucher issued by a Restaurant is the Restaurant. The holder and issuer of a Voucher issued by a Merchant is the Merchant. As a holder and issuer of the Voucher, the Restaurant or Merchant shall be fully responsible for any and all injuries, illnesses, damages, claims, liabilities and costs suffered by or in respect of a customer, caused in whole or in part by the Restaurant or the Merchant, as well as for any unclaimed property liability arising from unredeemed Vouchers. Vouchers are redeemable in their entirety only and may not be redeemed incrementally. All Vouchers printed from the Site are promotional certificates that are offered to you below their face value and shall be honored only in combination with additional consideration and subject to the terms and conditions of Company and the participating Restaurant or Merchant. Vouchers do not provide customers with an absolute right to redeem a deal for its full value without such additional consideration.
According to the laws of the respective states in which you purchased the Voucher, and in which you wish to redeem the Voucher, the Merchant or Restaurant is responsible for allowing you to redeem the Voucher for the cash value based on the money you actually paid for the Voucher (i.e. if you paid $10 for a Voucher which gives you $30 of value to the Merchant, the cash value that you paid is $10, not $30), for a period of time that may extend beyond the expiration date on the Voucher. While the expiration date on the Voucher dictates the last date that you can use the Voucher for the promotional offer which is stated on the Voucher, state laws (which vary state-by-state, and which are generally made available by each State on the web) may provide that the Merchant or Restaurant is responsible for honoring the cash value that you paid for the Voucher for a period of time beyond the expiration date stated on the Voucher. If applicable, this is a statutory provision which applies to the Merchant or Restaurant, and it is the sole responsibility of the Merchant or Restaurant (and in no way the responsibility of Company, as Company is not the Merchant or Restaurant, has no obligations of the Merchant or Restaurant, and is merely selling the Voucher on behalf of the Merchant or Restaurant) to comply with such applicable laws and statutes which may govern the Merchant or Restaurant. Specific Vouchers may also contain additional terms and conditions.
2. ADDITIONAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR RESTAURANT VOUCHERS
For this section, Restaurant shall be defined as a merchant who offers food and beverage for sale in its regular business operations, and is making such food and beverages available to purchasers of Vouchers. The following provisions describe your relationship to Restaurant. Redemption frequency is determined by Restaurant, and shall be contained in the Voucher offer. Use of Vouchers for alcoholic beverages is at the sole discretion of the Restaurant. Restaurant agrees to comply with all state laws pertaining to the sale of alcoholic beverages. It is at the discretion of the Restaurant to determine whether Vouchers can be combined with any other restaurant certificates, third party certificates, coupons, or promotions. Vouchers cannot be used for taxes, tips or prior balances, unless permitted by the Restaurant. No cash back upon redemption of the Voucher or at any other time. Valid for dine in only unless otherwise stated. The issuing of restaurant credit is at the sole discretion of the Restaurant unless otherwise required by law. Neither the Company nor the Restaurant is responsible for lost or stolen Vouchers or Restaurant Voucher reference numbers. Reproduction, sale or trade of Voucher is prohibited unless done in compliance with the law. Any attempted redemption not consistent with this Agreement will render the Voucher void. Void to the extent prohibited by law. Vouchers expire on the date specified on the Voucher, except where otherwise prohibited by law.
3. ADDITIONAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR MERCHANT VOUCHERS
Vouchers sold by Merchants may be applied only to merchandise sold by Merchants, and may not be applied to shipping or handling charges. Limit one (1) Voucher per redemption. Only one (1) Voucher can be used per order unless otherwise specified by Merchant. No cash back upon redemption or at any other time. The issuing of credit is at the sole discretion of the Merchant unless otherwise required by law. Neither the Company nor the Merchant is responsible for lost or stolen Vouchers or voucher reference numbers. Voucher cannot be combined with any other gift certificates, third party certificates, coupons, or promotions, unless otherwise specified by merchant. Reproduction, sale or trade of Vouchers is prohibited unless done so in compliance with the law. Any attempted redemption not consistent with these terms and conditions will render the Voucher null and void. Void to the extent prohibited by law. Vouchers expire on the date specified on the Voucher, except where otherwise prohibited by law.
