These Loyalty App Terms explain how you can access GivBax Rewards through our mobile application or web portal (hereinafter referred to as the “App”) to earn points and exchange them for rewards. These Loyalty App Terms do not alter in any way the terms or conditions of any other agreement you may have with ARDEX Group UK, or eligible merchants for our products, services or otherwise. Our Privacy notice http://privacy.givbax.co.uk explains how we will use your personal data.
By registering for and becoming a Member of the loyalty programme, you agree to be bound by these Loyalty App Terms. If you do not agree to these Loyalty App Terms, you should not use the App.
4. Participation within GivBax Rewards
You will be prompted to register your account after you install the App. The minimum system and compatibility requirements for the App are set out on the app store where you downloaded the App. If your device doesn’t meet these then the App may not work as intended, or at all.

If you create more than one account, we reserve the right to deactivate your accounts.
You must provide valid, correct and up to date data to become and continue being a member of the loyalty programme. Therefore, please ensure you update your details regularly.

It is the responsibility of the company to agree which Member is claiming for which purchases and we take no liability for Members making claims or associated redemptions or rewards.
Claims on product purchases can only be made once. Multiple claims on the same purchase or invoice will not be rewarded and will lead to all associated accounts being contacted for resolution, which could also incur immediate removal of eligibility and membership, whereby we accept no liability for refusing your participation in the membership programme membership and loss of points.
Any fraudulent claims including (but not limited to) claims that are found to use invoices that show a different registered Members name or different registered company name, claims that have been amended, modified or falsified in any way, are from a time period prior to registration or agreed date for qualification with ARDEX Group UK, or found in any other way to be false will lead to all associated accounts being contacted for resolution, which could also incur immediate removal of eligibility and membership, whereby we accept no liability for refusing your participation in the membership programme membership and loss of points.

5. How can you earn points?
The App allows you to collect points for all valid purchases of listed ARDEX Group UK products (multiple brands) from our approved retailers in the UK mainland only and provided the purchase and delivery for any online order is from an approved stockist to an address in the UK. A full list of our products and associated points can be always found within the app. Our approved retailers are also always listed as venues within the app.
Receipt or invoice images submitted to the Loyalty Programme – in accordance with the upload options shown within the app or on the givbax-rewards.com microsite only – must legibly include the retailer’s name, all individual items purchased and their prices, the total amount paid and transaction date. If any of this receipt information is illegible or missing, your receipt may not earn Loyalty Points.
Receipt or invoice images must be submitted within 60-days of the in-store transaction to be eligible for points. The same receipt or invoice may not be uploaded more than once. You may only submit real, unmodified receipts or invoices for transactions that you were part of.
Loyalty Points will only be awarded for receipts or invoices from participating retailers.
If it is not possible to automatically authorise or reject a receipt or invoice image submission, it will be manually reviewed within a maximum of 30 days of any valid evidence of purchase being provided, however points should be awarded within 72 hours wherever possible.
Members may only submit receipt or invoices that show purchases made by them whereby they have the ownership or agreement to use this for an eligible claim. The customer data on the receipt or invoice must relate to the Member data for that account. We will only award points where you have provided valid company details and a valid statement, invoice or receipt to validate your purchase and we cannot accept any order confirmations or delivery notes as evidence of purchase. You will not receive points for any purchases made prior to the start of the Loyalty Programme Term.
If all or some of the products that you purchase are returned after points have been awarded (e.g. if you withdraw from or terminate the contract or return an item purchased for which the points had been awarded), we may cancel the points awarded in proportion to the amount refunded.
Loyalty points are awarded as per the product listing and associated point value shown within the app at the time of claiming. Loyalty points can only be gained for the ARDEX Group UK products listed. We reserve the right to modify, change or remove products and associated point values at any time. You can check your up-to-date points status via your account on the App.
During the Loyalty Programme Term (as defined below), we may also in our sole discretion, award bonus points to participating customers for specific activities purchases of specific products or services at one or more UK Stores, during a certain period of time, or other promotional and/or marketing activities. These initiatives will be announced in direct communications to you through push notifications, email or a telephone call, be listed on our website or social communications, or contained within the App and in-store from time to time. Once the points have been awarded, they can be redeemed in accordance with these Loyalty App Terms.
Loyalty Points are not transferable to other accounts of Members or otherwise. Loyalty Points will be classed as spent once a Reward is purchased. Members are required to report any inaccuracy in their awarded Loyalty Points to ARDEX Group UK customer service within one month from discovering such inaccuracy.
ARDEX Group UK has the right to correct any wrongfully awarded Loyalty Points; or to annul any Rewards that are exchanged with such Loyalty Points within three months from the date of redemption.
Members can only exchange their Loyalty Points for Rewards within the GivBax Rewards Programme. The Rewards in the Loyalty Programme are subject to change without prior notice. Rewards cannot be returned or exchanged for alternative rewards. Any voucher cannot be combined with other vouchers of any kind, unless stated by ARDEX Group UK. Some rewards are only available while stocks last.
- Claiming Points
Points per eligible product are listed within the app. We will only exchange reward points through the agreed claim options within the app. Points are non-transferable.
To redeem points, just log in to the App and select the ‘redeem’ function against any reward that you are eligible for. When you select the redeem function, the App will provide details of the terms and conditions that apply to that reward (the “Reward Terms”), including any terms relating to expiry of the reward. If you do not agree to the Reward Terms, you may not participate in the reward.
If rewards are linked to a specific, identified retailer(s) only in the Reward Terms it is responsibility of the retailer(s) to fulfil the reward. If you have redeemed points in exchange for a reward and you have a query or complaint about the reward, please contact the relevant retailer.
Where points can be redeemed for cash values these can only be withdrawn using the providers network of ATM’s across the UK and in conjunction with their terms and conditions where applicable. Our cash redemption partner for GivBax Rewards is “Pin4 Cash” with an ATM network across the UK (see http://pin4.com/uk/terms-and-conditions/ for full details of terms and conditions). Alternate redemptions can be made by exchanging Member points for other merchandise and offers listed in the Spend section of the app. We reserve the right to amend any points values, or redemption offers at any time, without notice and without liability.
Members must have enough reward points to cover the point value required for item redemptions. Members cannot make a part payment of points towards a redemption product or service. For cash rewards the minimum withdrawal is £10 and withdrawals are in multiples of £10. Any additional points in Members accounts not required for a redemption will remain on the Member balance within their account.
If the period to use the reward expires without use, you lose the right to use the reward and the points used to claim the corresponding reward. You cannot cancel a reward after your points have been redeemed against it.
