4. POINTS MANAGEMENT
When Users register, an account that they can access will be activated, by means of authentication and password, on the www.vuelveamadrid.com website. In this account, Users can consult their points balance, access promotional campaigns that allow them to accumulate additional points, and redeem the points for coupons linked to the promotions and/or discounts offered by the Establishments participating in the Programme.
MADRID DESTINO shall be solely responsible for establishing the policies governing the award and redemption of points applicable during the validity of the Programme, and may change these at any time, subject to prior notification by email to the registered Users within seven (7) days’ notice to the effective date.
a) Policy governing the award of points
At the time of Programme launch, the policy for awarding points to Programme Users is as follows:
a) At the time of registration, Users will receive 200 points to the associated account. This promotion is not valid for Users that register via Facebook Connect;
b) MADRID DESTINO may award additional points in special promotional campaigns in accordance with the different action plans established by MADRID DESTINO and communicated to Users.
Programme Users who do not agree with the points balance on their account shall inform MADRID DESTINO of the discrepancy by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
The promotional points awarded by MADRID DESTINO may be subject to a restricted validity period, becoming definitively invalid at the end of the promotional period if they are not exchanged by the User.
b) Points redemption policy
Programme Users can redeem the points earned for coupons with promotions and discounts applicable to participating Establishments through their User accounts registered on the www.vuelveamadrid.com website.
Depending on the point balance accumulated, Users can access the different promotions and discounts for participating Establishments valid at any given time. Programme Users may verify the availability of the promotions and discounts valid at any given time by visiting the website www.vuelveamadrid.com.
Programme Users shall be the sole beneficiaries of the points accumulated via the Programme, as well as the only parties authorized to redeem points. Only one coupon may be downloaded per offer.
Users who modify their place of residence to the city of Madrid shall not be eligible to redeem points. Users whose registration to the Programme is cancelled shall not be eligible to redeem points.
MADRID DESTINO reserves the right to amend, withdraw or expand on the promotions and discounts valid at any given time, and to increase, reduce or impose any requirement or restriction on points redemption for promotions and discounts in participating Establishments, subject to notification of Programme Users.
Users may not exchange the points accumulated for money or for discounts and promotions in participating Establishments not valid at the time of points redemption. Users may not redeem the points corresponding to other Users.
Programme points do not constitute a payment method but represent an exchange for promotions and discounts in participating Establishments. Once points have been redeemed, Users may not exchange the discount and/or promotion chosen for a different one. Users may enjoy the promotions and discounts offered by participating Establishments during the validity period of each offer specified in the coupon. The fact of enjoying the promotion and/or discount during the validity period specified in the printed coupon does not confer any additional rights on the User.
c) Temporary validity of points accumulated during promotional campaigns
The validity of points accumulated during special promotional campaigns can be limited to the specified period of the promotion’s communication campaigns. If a user has not exchanged any extra points accumulated during a campaign within the indicated redemption period, the points accumulated during said campaign will become invalid and discounted from the user’s account. The user can check their personal account for the validity period of any available points to making managing and exchanging accumulated points easier.
5. CANCELLATION CONDITIONS
The User can withdraw their participation from the Programme at any time subject to prior notification via email to email@example.com.
At the time of cancellation, the User can exchange the points accumulated on their account for the valid promotions and discounts they have a right to at that time. The cancellation of registration to the Programme with an unexchanged points balance shall not generate any right or economic compensation in their favour.
MADRID DESTINO reserves the right to modify the present Terms and Conditions at any time, subject to prior notification of the User via the email address provided on registering to the Programme.
In the event that any Programme User misuses points or breaches these Terms and Conditions, MADRID DESTINO may automatically terminate the participation of said User in the Programme without the need for prior notification, cancelling all the points accumulated up to that time with no possibility of redeeming them.
7. VALIDITY AND TERMINATION
7.1. The Programme will have an indefinite validity, although MADRID DESTINO can terminate the Programme at any time, subject to prior notification of Users within 15 days before the termination date.
