- Offer Redemption
The Offer you redeem via the Marketplace is redeemable for the goods and/or services of a specific Rewards Partner. You acknowledge and accept that the Rewards Partner, not Yontras, is the seller of the goods and services and is solely responsible for providing any Offer you wish to redeem.
Your usage of Offers redeemed by you via the Marketplace shall be subject to the following additional terms and conditions:
(i) Terms and Conditions for All Offers
All Offers provided in the Marketplace are offered to you either with a Referral Reward attached or for a discount of the retail price and are subject to the terms and conditions of Referrals Programme, the Yontras site and the participating Rewards Partner.
Yontras shall retain full and final control over which Rewards Partners shall provide Offers in the Marketplace and participate in the Referrals Programme to the extent permitted by law.
(ii) This Agreement incorporates by reference the fine print and any additional terms and conditions set forth on the face of each Offer. In the event of any conflict between the terms and conditions expressly set forth in this Agreement and any terms and conditions set forth on the Offer itself, the express terms and conditions of this Agreement shall prevail.
(iii) The holder and issuer of an Offer is the Rewards Partner. As a holder and issuer of the Offer, the Rewards Partner is fully responsible for any and all injuries, illnesses, damages, claims, liabilities and costs suffered by or in respect you, whether caused in whole or in part by the Rewards Partner, as well as for any unclaimed property liability arising from unredeemed Offers. Offers are redeemable in their entirety only and may not be redeemed incrementally.
There is no issue of credit associated with any Offer unless otherwise required by law.
(iv) Reproduction, transfer or trade of an Offer is prohibited unless done so in compliance with the law and Yontras Terms and Conditions. Should a Customer or Agent attempt any of the above activities, Yontras retains the right to terminate the Membership without recourse to any refund of Membership fees paid if they were an Agent with the advanced level.
(v) Any attempted redemption not consistent with these terms and conditions will render the Offer null and void. Void to the extent allowed by law.
(vi) If you redeem the Offer for less than its face value, you will not be entitled to a credit, cash or a new Offer equal to the difference between the face value and the amount you redeemed, unless it is clearly stated as a Referral Reward by the Rewards Partner.
(vii) Offers may be applied only to merchandise sold by Rewards Partner, and may not be applied to shipping or handling charges.
Offers may not be combined with any other gift certificates, third party certificates, Offers, or promotions, unless otherwise specified by Rewards Partner.
(viii) Despite our reasonable efforts, items may occasionally be listed at an incorrect price or with incorrect information. If this happens, we may cancel or reverse a transaction, even after it is completed and a payment has been processed. If we do this, we’ll promptly arrange for any payment to be credited or refunded and you must not use the item unless you re-purchase it at the correct price.
- Offer Delivery
Yontras will deliver the Offers redeemed in one of combination of the following methods:
- i) Mail the Offers via post at the customer mailing address provided at the time of the redemption of the Offer on Website. Any such delivery mechanism will be specified during the redemption on Website.
- ii) Phone redemption where Yontras will present a specific code and telephone number to the customer to redeem the Offer. Any such delivery mechanism will be specified during the redemption on Website.
iii) Link-based redemption where Yontras will offer a protected link within the Marketplace in order to help Customers redeem the Offer directly from their Accounts.
