BoroughBox - Box Points - Membership terms and conditions
Membership of the Box Points programme is free.
Only individuals may be Members. Any individual who wishes to become a Member must agree to be bound by these Terms and conditions, as varied from time to time.
A Member must notify BoroughBox Box Points immediately of any change of address or personal details.
BoroughBox may terminate membership of the Box Points programme, without notice and for any reason, including if the Member:
Fails to comply with these Terms and Conditions; or
Supplies any misleading information or makes any misrepresentations to Box Points or to any participating company in connection with the Box Points programme; or
Abuses any privilege accorded to the Member under the Box Points programme, including by fraudulently using his or her membership; or
A Member may at any time terminate his or her membership by giving written notice to BoroughBox. Any tax arising from a Member's participation in the Box Points programme is the responsibility of the Member.
2. Collecting Box Points
Box Points will be recorded in a Member's points record for purchases by the Member of qualifying goods or services from a participating company on the BoroughBox website. Points may also be recorded in a Member's points record in relation to promotional offers and incentive programmes.
BoroughBox and the participating companies will from time to time determine which goods or services are qualifying goods and services, the number of points that will be recorded in a Member's points record for such purchases and any terms and conditions that apply to the collection of points.
A Member must, in order to receive points, ensure before the transaction is concluded that the transaction is a Box Points transaction. This is done by ensuring any purchase or action is taken through the BoroughBox website found at www.boroughbox.com.
Box Points will be recorded in the Member's points record only after the participating company has confirmed and notified Box Points of the details of the relevant transaction.
Box Points will from time to time forward a Points Summary to selected Members setting out the opening points balance, points recorded and deducted during the period and the closing points balance.
Disputes about the Points Summary must be notified to Box Points by the date (if any) specified in the relevant Points Summary. The Points Summary will otherwise be taken to be correct and binding on the Member. BoroughBox's decision on any such dispute is final and binding.
BoroughBox will not record points given by companies for purchases made after they have ceased to be participants in the Box Points programme.
3. Claiming a reward
A Member who has sufficient points in his or her points record may request a reward from the then current collection of rewards made available by BoroughBox. Requests must be made by the Member personally, in a way specified by Box Points from time to time. The number of points required to claim a reward is subject to change without notice. All rewards are subject to availability. Rewards will, at BoroughBox's option, be posted or delivered to the current address of the Member shown in their BoxPoints account or made available for collection at a location notified to the Member. The Member shall comply with such conditions as Box Points imposes.
All rewards are subject to such other terms and conditions as are mentioned at the Box Points website, on the reward voucher or other confirmation, or in any other terms and conditions relating to the reward determined by the reward provider. It is the Member's responsibility to satisfy any terms and conditions imposed by any reward provider. A member cannot claim a reward using Points recorded in the Member's point record that the Member knows, or ought to know, have been recorded in error or as a result of fraud. If, in BoroughBox's opinion, a member claims a reward using Points that the Member knew, or ought to have known, were recorded against the Member's points record in error or as a result of fraud, the Member will promptly return the reward to Box Points in its original condition or will promptly reimburse Box Points for the cost of the reward. A Box Points certificate as to a Member's entitlement to claim a reward shall be conclusive in the absence of manifest error.
Box Points may suspend a Member's ability to claim a reward, without notice and for such period of time as Box Points considers appropriate, if Box Points considers on reasonable grounds that points may have been collected by that Member as a result of fraud by that Member or anyone in relation to a participating company.
4. Deduction of points
The number of points published by Box Points for redemption of a reward claimed will be deducted from the points balance of the Member's points record, with the oldest points being deducted first. Box Points may also deduct from the points balance in a Member's points record:
- any points recorded in error (including where points have been recorded as a result of a Member being involved in fraudulent activities or where points have been recorded in a Member's points record but there has been no corresponding purchase of qualifying goods and/or services); and
- any points relating to a transaction which is cancelled or where a refund is given; and
- any points which are not used by a Member to claim a reward within 365 days of the points being recorded. These will expire and be deducted from the points balance in a Member's points record.
5. Personal information
Information about Members will be collected and held by BoroughBox. This information will be used by BoroughBox, and its agents to provide services relating to the Box Points programme including to provide BoxPoint Summaries and market research. Information from the database may also be used by BoroughBox and its agents, for marketing purposes, planning, product development, and research.
Each Member consents to the collection and use of their personal and other information in the manner set out above and the disclosure of such information to BoroughBox agents and reward providers for the purposes of operating and marketing the Box Points programme. Information about Members may be disclosed to a participating company (or its agent) if:
- the relevant Member consents to that disclosure; or
- Box Points considers on reasonable grounds that that disclosure is necessary to enable the recording of points in relation to transactions of those Members; or
- the Member is a prize winner in a competition or promotion run by or on behalf of that participating company and the information is disclosed for the sole purpose of enabling notification of the prize winner and/or making arrangements for receipt of the prize; or
