8. Data We Retain
We reserve the right to maintain copies in perpetuity all Account and location-based information on electronic storage devices, including browsing and purchase details, User Content and location data from mobile devices operating the Rush49 app.
9. Terms of Sale
You understand and accept that we are a service that offers Deals on behalf of our Merchants and that all Deals must ultimately be redeemed for the corresponding Products and Platform directly from the selling Merchants or others authorized to redeem the Deals on their behalf. The terms of all Deals are clearly specified in conjunction with that Deal and form the basis for your ability to redeem that Deal. In using the Platform and purchasing Deals, you agree to carefully read the terms specific to each Deal before purchasing and attempting to redeem any Deal. For example, calendar-based restrictions may be included in these terms such as specific days of the week or times during the day when Deals may be redeemed.
10. Actual Value of Deals
All Deals sold at the Platform consist of two separate values: The actual price paid by you for the Deal ("Purchase Value") and an additional value that represents the savings you will get off the regular price for the Product or Service offered in the Deal ("Deal Value"). The Purchase Value never expires and may always be redeemed for the product or service included in that Deal. The Deal Value, however, will expire on the Expiration Date associated with that Deal unless prohibited by law.
11. Deal Redemption Options
All Deals you have purchased are stored in your Account until such time as you redeem that Deal or get a refund of the Purchase Value. You will always be able to access your active Deals via the Rush49 web site or the Rush49 mobile app.
Deals may be redeemed in a number of ways depending on whether you and/or the Merchant has an active and connected mobile device with the Rush49 app at the time of redemption:
· If you have an active mobile device that supports the Rush49 app, you may redeem all Deals directly from the app, subject to availability of mobile connectivity to our servers at the time of redemption.
· If you do not have an active mobile device with the Rush49 app, it will be necessary for you to bring either a printout of the Deal generated by the Rush49.com web site or the unique Deal ID Number that you can find on either the Rush49 app or web site with the Deal details.
There are also a number of methods by which Merchants may be notified that you have redeemed a Deal, including but not limited to a Rush49 Merchant app, the Rush49 Merchant website, FAX or text message. While we cannot guarantee which method each Merchant will use to receive notification of your Deal redemption, all Merchants have agreed to have at least one of the above methods in place at all times to facilitate your ability to redeem the deal you have purchased.
Due to the fact that we cannot guarantee the ability of your mobile device to connect to our Platform in every location due to factors beyond our control, redemption of any Deal cannot be guaranteed unless you have a printed copy of the Deal Invoice or the Deal ID Number with you at the time of redemption.
12. Expired Deals
You acknowledge that if the expiration date of any Voucher you have purchased has passed, Merchants may only honor the Voucher for the Purchase Value, or, at their discretion, they may accept the Voucher for the full value indicated (Purchase Value plus Deal Value)..
Events are defined as occurring on a specified calendar date(s) as determined by the Merchant or Event Organizer.
Activities are defined as having no preset calendar date(s) and must be scheduled (independent of Rush49) directly with the merchant.
Events-related purchases are refunded only in the event of a cancellation or a change of dates. If a Merchant cancels an event, your purchase will be fully refunded. If an event is rescheduled by a Merchant, you will have the option to participate on the rescheduled date or request a full refund by contacting us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at (877) 827 5017.
If You Purchase an Activity and are unable to schedule it with the Merchant, contact us within sixty (60) calendar days from time of purchase at email@example.com or call (877) 827 5017. We will do our best to resolve the problem and when that is not possible we will issue a full refund.
If you are unable to redeem a voucher prior to its expiration date; due to a refusal of the Merchant to honor it when you have followed the terms of the deal, a lack of the product or service offered, or their inability, for any reason, to deliver the Product or Service you purchased, you have the option to request a refund in the full amount of the Purchase Value. If requested within sixty (60) days from the time of purchase, the refund will be credited to the payment method used at the time of purchase. After sixy (60) days, the purchase amount will be credited as "Rush49 Credit" to your Rush49 Account, which may be used as payment in lieu of currency for future Rush49 Voucher purchases.
Refunds may take up to ten (10) business days to process.
To request a refund, please call our customer support at (877) 827-5017 or email your request, along with your name and the voucher number to firstname.lastname@example.org.
