Terms & Conditions

1. Etihad Guest Reward Shop Rules

The Reward Shop is the reward section of the web site for the Etihad Guest programme. The use of the Reward Shop is exclusively for Etihad Guest Members who can enter into legally binding agreements under the applicable law. The rules relating to the use of the Reward Shop are set out below

By accessing this Site and making transactions through the Reward Shop, specifically by clicking the "I AGREE" button, you expressly indicate your acknowledgment and acceptance of the Rules Applicable to the Reward Shop.

You have the possibility to redeem Etihad Guest Miles in accordance with the following four redemption types: Buying, Donating, Raffle and Bidding, to obtain Rewards. Rewards consist of Flight Rewards and Non-Flight Rewards.

Flight Rewards are offered by Etihad Airways and its partner airlines. These are offered subject to the terms and conditions of the Etihad Guest Programme and the individual conditions of contract and the Terms and Conditions of Carriage of the airline.

Non-Flight Rewards consist of any goods or services purchased by you, by buying or bidding, or awarded to you in a raffle and sold, auctioned, awarded and distributed by independent Merchants that make available such Rewards directly to you via the Reward Shop. Taking advantage of these services you will be entering into a legal relationship with the Merchant. To the extent permitted by law, Etihad Airways and any party managing and/or operating its Reward Shop on its behalf (shop operator) exclude all liability to you or other person of whatsoever nature in respect of any negligence, willful misconduct, poor service or other breach of obligation arising out of the provision or failure to provide the services by or on behalf of a Merchant.

You may only use this Site and the Reward Shop to make non commercial, legitimate reservations or Reward purchases or benefit from other redemption types and shall not use the Site or the Reward Shop for any other purposes, including making any speculative, false or fraudulent reservations or Reward purchases or other Reward redemptions. Rewards on the website are subject to availability at the time of booking and country of shipment.

Buying:Through this redemption type, you have the possibility to redeem Etihad Guest Miles by purchasing Rewards from Merchants in exchange for Etihad Guest Miles, cash, or a combination thereof. For details on Reward Payment, Reward Redemption and Returned, Delayed and Defective Rewards, see also Sections 10.5 and 10.6 below.

Donating:Through this redemption type, you have the possibility to redeem Etihad Guest Miles by making donations or contributions to charitable or other institutions. Donations can only be made in Etihad Guest Miles and no cash donations can be made through the Reward Shop. There is no minimum donation requirement.

Raffle:Through this redemption type, you have the possibility to redeem Etihad Guest Miles by purchasing raffle tickets for such amount of Etihad Guest Miles as specified in the Reward Shop for each specific raffle, provided that you have sufficient Etihad Guest Miles available on your Account. Raffle tickets can only be redeemed against Etihad Guest Miles and no raffle tickets can be purchased in cash. You have the possibility to purchase multiple raffle tickets for the same draw. Winners of the raffle will be informed by email. For specific raffle rules, see Section 10.7 below.

Bidding:Through this redemption type, you have the possibility to redeem Etihad Guest Miles by purchasing rewards by auction. Auction bids can be settled either in miles, cash or any combination thereof. Decisions as to what constitutes a qualifying bid, as well as exceptions, will be made at the sole discretion of Etihad Airways. Although these rules refer to the term ?Auction?, it is important to note that neither Etihad Airways nor its shop operator is an "auctioneer? in the traditional sense. Instead, Etihad Airways allows you to bid for and acquire Rewards offered by Merchants in the Reward Shop using mileage bids in an auction-style format commonly referred to as "auction". Winners of the auction will be informed by email after the auction period defined in the Reward Shop. For specific bidding rules, please see Section 10.8 below.

Every time you purchase, by auction or otherwise, or are awarded, a Reward via the Reward Shop, you directly enter into an agreement with the Merchant. Etihad Airways and its shop operator only provide the access and the technical platform for you to directly redeem Rewards from the Merchant, whether it is through Reward purchases, auctions or raffles. Neither Etihad Airways nor its shop operator becomes party to the transaction between you and the Merchant. The relationship between you and the Merchant is exclusively governed by the specific terms and conditions of the Merchant. Etihad Airways strongly recommend that you check the terms and conditions of the Merchant prior to redeeming any Reward. Please contact the merchant in case of non-delivery of the reward beyond the estimated delivery time stipulated on the order confirmation page. Any non-delivery claims received later than 3 months from order date can no longer be processed.

When purchasing Rewards via the Reward Shop, you can pay for such Rewards either (i) in cash by credit card, (ii) with Etihad Guest Miles, or (iii) with a combination of cash and Etihad Guest Miles.

Cash Payment by Credit Card: For cash payments by credit card, the Reward Shop uses a secure Credit Card Internet Gateway Service (3D Secured/Verified by Visa). The amount as indicated in the Reward Shop for the respective Reward will be collected on behalf of Etihad Airways or the Merchant as the case may be.

Payment with Etihad Guest Miles: You have the alternative to buy a Reward for such amount of Etihad Guest Miles as indicated for each Reward in the Reward Shop, provided that you have sufficient Etihad Guest Miles available on your account at the time of purchasing a Reward. Etihad Guest Miles that are not yet accrued and credited to your account at the time you place the purchase order are not available for Reward purchase. Etihad Guest Miles are deducted from your account as soon as the Reward is purchased.

The amount of Etihad Guest Miles necessary for the purchase of a Reward is determined by Etihad Airways and Etihad Airways has the right, at any time, to change the amount of Etihad Guest Miles necessary to purchase a Reward in the Reward Shop. The conversion of Etihad Guest Miles into a cash amount can differ from Reward to Reward and can be determined and/or changed by Etihad Airways at any time and at its sole discretion.

The conversion of Etihad Guest Miles into a cash amount and the payment of such cash amount to you or any similar transactions are not possible, not even in case of return of the product or services or the cancellation of Etihad Guest membership by you.

Any Rewards purchased by you with Etihad Guest Miles that have not been properly debited to your account can be reclaimed by Etihad Airways at any time without compensation.

In case you pay a Reward with a combination of cash and Etihad Guest Miles, the ratio between cash amount and Etihad Guest Miles amount necessary for the purchase of a Reward is determined and can be changed by Etihad Airways at any time and at its sole discretion.

You must agree and acknowledge that separate terms and conditions dictated by the relevant Merchant will apply to any Reward redemptions via the Reward Shop. You must agree to abide to such applicable terms and conditions, including but not limited to, rules and restrictions on availability, shipment and delivery terms, notification of defects, return and refund policies, money back guarantees and claim for damages.

In case of purchase of vouchers or gift certificates via the Reward Shop and if such order has not arrived at your shipping location within 15 days of the shipment date, Etihad Airways may, upon a written request from you which should be received within 60 days of the shipment date, cancel and replace such order, provided you submit a properly completed affidavit of claimant. Upon receipt of such affidavit Etihad Airways will initiate a review process. The voucher or gift certificate may or may not be replaced, depending upon the outcome of such review. Etihad Airways will not replace any lost or stolen vouchers or gift certificates if the affidavit of claimant was not received within the 60-day period from date of shipment. To initiate the investigation, you should contact the Etihad Guest Service Centre. Vouchers and gift certificates are not replaceable if lost, stolen, destroyed or expired.

Where indicated, the prices on the Reward Shop include shipping fees. Nevertheless, for some Rewards, you may be charged and may bear in addition local duties and taxes such as for example VAT and/or luxury taxes. Please check with your local authorities prior to ordering a Reward.

In the event of purchasing Rewards in the Reward Shop, you expressly agree and accept that any claim, compensation or damage for wrong or delayed handling and for returned, defective or faulty Rewards can only and exclusively be made against the Merchant, in accordance with the Merchants terms and conditions. Any complaints for delayed deliveries or returned, defective or faulty Rewards shall be addressed directly and exclusively to the Merchant. Returns must be made immediately, in the same condition in which you received the rewards and at your own cost and risk. Any refunds will be in the form and currency of the original method of payment. If a Reward is damaged in transit then you should not accept such package and the delivery company will be responsible for arranging the replacement.

2. Reward Card Terms & Conditions

Cornèr Banca SA (hereinafter referred to as "the Bank") shall issue in favour of the card applicant (hereinafter referred to as "the Cardholder") a personal and non-transferable Visa Prepaid PointsPay Card (hereinafter referred to as "the Card") upon the Bank's acceptance of the Card application submitted by Card applicant. The Card may be issued physically by providing a plastic card and a secret personal identification number (hereinafter referred to as "the PIN") or virtually without providing a plastic card and a PIN). These General Terms and Conditions shall apply, to the extent applicable, likewise to physical and virtual Cards.

Upon acceptance of the Card application by the Bank and at any and all times thereafter, the Cardholder directly enters into a Card agreement with the Bank as the Card issuer. Loylogic AG, is the responsible service provider and partner of the Bank (hereinafter referred to as "the Service Provider") . The Cardholder expressly agrees and accepts that any claims arising out of such Card agreement can only and exclusively be made against the Bank as the Card issuer, subject to the limitations provided for in Sections 3 and 4 hereinafter and the Service Provider expressly disclaims any such liability except for the process of converting accrued miles or points into funds as per Section 2, the delivery of the Card, the PIN and other personalized security features as per Section 8, and any consequences arising from the use or nonuse of the online access functionalities as per Section 9.

The Card shall remain valid until the date engraved upon it. If so requested, the Bank may replace the Card before it is due to expire. The Cardholder shall undertake to sign the Card as soon as he/she receives it. The Cardholder shall update his/her profile immediately in case of any changes provided on the Card application, in particular of changes in personal data or address. If the Card is replaced, the balance of the old Card shall be transferred to the new Card, after deduction of any fees.

The Card will be exclusively loaded by the Service Provider via its bank account established with the Bank. Such loading operation shall be exclusively generated as a result of the conversion of accrued miles or points in virtue of a specific electronic tool developed by the Service Provider permitting such conversion. The Cardholder explicitly agrees to such loading operation by the Service Provider including but not limited to the back and forth transfer, debit, and/or credit of miles and points between the Cardholder's miles or points account and the Card. The Cardholder acknowledges that the Bank assumes no responsibility whatsoever with regard to the process of converting accrued miles or points into funds that are loaded or supposed to be loaded on the Card.

The Card can be used up to the amount loaded by the Service Provider. The spending limit per amount loaded shall decrease as Card usage increases but shall rise as subsequent transfers (hereinafter referred to as "reloads") are made to the Card. The amount loaded does not earn any interest. Card spending above the amount loaded shall not be allowed; should this limit nevertheless be exceeded, the Cardholder shall repay the excess amount immediately and in full and Service Provider reserves the right to make such points or miles withdrawal from Cardholder's account and/or invoice the Cardholder for such excess amount spent.

The Cardholder agrees that any Card charge backs and related fees are borne by Cardholder and Service Provider reserves the right to make such points or miles withdrawal from Cardholder's account and/or invoice the Cardholder for such Card charge backs and related fees.

The Cardholder is authorised to purchase goods and services from affiliated merchants worldwide, provided that they are equipped with the electronic acceptance device for Visa Cards which requires the PIN or the signature. Cash withdrawals from ATM's or banks are excluded unless provided otherwise. The Service Provider and the Bank expressly disclaim any liability for purchases made by a party other than the Cardholder.

The Card must be kept in a safe place and protected against unauthorized access or use by third parties at all times. The Cardholder shall neither write down his/her PIN anywhere nor disclose it to anyone, not even to persons claiming to work for the Service Provider or the Bank and identifying themselves as such. The Cardholder shall be liable for all consequences resulting from his/her failure or the failure of the Cardholder of the Partner Card to comply with the obligation to safeguard the PIN and/or the Card. The Cardholder further acknowledges that neither the Bank nor the Service Provider shall be liable in case of interception of the mobile device and subsequent misuse of the online access functionalities, PIN and/or Card by an unauthorized third party if the mobile device password, online access password, and/or PIN have been stored on the mobile device. The Cardholder further acknowledges that neither the Bank nor the Service Provider shall be liable in case of interception or misuse of the points engine of the participating loyalty program by an unauthorized third party, or interception or misuse of a mobile device that has been "jailbroken".

The Card merely functions as a cashless means of payment. The Bank and the Service Provider shall not be held liable for any transactions conducted with the Card. In particular, the Cardholder shall acknowledge that the Bank and the Service Provider are not liable even if, for any reason, the affiliated merchants do not accept the Card, or accept it only partly. The Cardholder shall further acknowledge that the Bank and the Service Provider are not liable in such an event and shall not file any complaint with the Bank and the Service Provider in connection with the vouchers themselves and/or the Card usages relating thereto. This shall also apply in the case of late delivery of, or failure to deliver, goods or services. In the event of disputes or complaints of any kind concerning goods or services, or the exercise of any right in this connection, the Cardholder shall contact exclusively the affiliated merchant. In particular, the Cardholder shall not be released from his obligation to pay the Bank the amounts shown on the e-statements in case of any disputes that may arise. The Card may only be used for transactions which are lawful. The Bank and the Service Provider expressly disclaim any liability in case of unlawful transactions and/or fraudulent use of the Card, false information provided on Card application and/or registration, which may lead to criminal and civil prosecution.

By signing the appropriate voucher when using the Card or by using the PIN, the Cardholder acknowledges the correctness of the amount. Moreover, the Cardholder shall acknowledge the validity of transactions carried out with the Card or with the Card details but without a signature or use of the PIN (on the Internet or over the telephone). The Cardholder irrevocably authorizes the Bank to pay this amount to the affiliated merchant. The Cardholder becomes a debtor of the Bank with regard to the amounts paid by the Bank. The Bank reserves the right not to honor any vouchers which do not comply with these General Terms and Conditions.

All purchases and other transactions made with the Card or with the details on it, as well as all payments, will be treated based on the value and date according to the date of the accounting entry. For Card usage conducted in other currencies (other than the currency of the Card), the Cardholder shall accept the exchange rate used by the Bank.

The Cardholder may at any time view the balance of his/her Card by means of online access functionalities hosted by the Service Provider. The balance includes all transactions notified to the Bank up to the evening of the previous Swiss working day. The e-statement shall be regarded as approved unless it is contested in writing immediately but at any rate no later than 30 days following the accounting entry date. Late notification of contested items shall not be considered.

Should the Card be cancelled, the Cardholder may ask for reimbursement of the remaining balance after deduction of administrative expenses as indicated in the table in the Card application form or as separately communicated by the Bank.

If the Card is lost or stolen, the Cardholder must report the event immediately to the Bank by telephone with subsequent confirmation in writing. In the event of theft, the Cardholder must also report the theft to the police. Until such time as the Bank receives such notification of the loss/theft, the Cardholder shall be liable for any fraudulent use of the Card. The Cardholder will be responsible for any transaction which has been made through the use of the Card and his/ her PIN, even after the Card has been reported lost or stolen. He/she shall not be deemed liable if he has exercised all due care in safeguarding the Card. In principle, such a replacement shall not be made until 7 days following such a request.

The Bank reserves the right at its discretion to block and/or recall the Card of the Cardholder at any time, without advance warning and without having to give reasons. Its decision cannot be contested. The Bank and the Service Provider shall not be held liable for consequences which might arise for the Cardholder as a result of the blocking or recall of the Card. The use of a blocked Card is unlawful and may result in prosecution, as may the obligations incurred by the Cardholder as a result. The Bank reserves the right to provide the affiliated merchants with any information they may require to obtain the amount due directly from the Cardholder.

The Cardholder instructs the Bank to deliver the Card, the PIN and other personalised security features issued from time to time by the Bank in his/ her favor as well as the documentation and information related to the use of such Card, PIN or other personalised security features at his/her attention to the Service Provider or its authorized agent. The Service Provider and/or its authorised agent shall be responsible to deliver such tools, documentation and information to the Cardholder by adopting appropriate security measures. The Card and the PIN may be posted to the address provided by the Cardholder in the application form. The Card and the PIN shall be delivered to the Cardholder in different envelopes. The Service Provider and the Bank expressly disclaim any liability for late shipment or none arrival of the Card and/or PIN and any follow up shipment remains at Cardholder's expense. The Card shall remain the property of the Bank at all times.

The Cardholder instructs the Bank to make available to the Service Provider any information related to the Card, in particular information concerning Card issuance, Card use, reloading, etc., in order to enable the Service Provider to administer its relationship with the Cardholder. The Service Provider will provide appropriate online access functionalities and make available to the Cardholder electronically a statement of the executed transactions and Card usages, reloadings, charges and fees (e-statement). In the event of discrepancies between the records provided by the Service Provider and the internal accounting records of the Bank, the Bank records shall prevail. The Cardholder explicitly accepts to receive all these information electronically and not on paper. The Bank shall not be liable for any consequences arising from the use or nonuse of the online access functionalities provided by the Service Provider.
