11.   VALUE OF EAPPOINTS
EAPPoints have no monetary value and may not be redeemed for cash.  They are also non-transferable.

11.  POINTS


All Points are made available by Eappetit, and all members can redeem at any Eappetit participating restaurant (“Points Provider”).  Reward points are made available directly by the participating restaurants in forms of payment at a set conversion rate.  Eappetit will have no liability if a restaurant affiliate refuses or fails to honor any Reward.  In addition, the following terms and conditions also apply to all Points:
* Use of Points relating to alcoholic beverages is at the sole discretion of the Points Provider and is subject to compliance with applicable law.
* Points cannot be combined with any other Points, offers, vouchers, third party certificates, coupons, or promotions, unless otherwise specified by the Points Provider.
* Points can be used for taxes, tips or prior balances.
* Neither Eappetit nor the Participating restaurant is responsible for malfunctioning mobile devices upon which the EAPPoint is loaded.
* Any attempted redemption not consistent with these Terms of Use or any other restrictions imposed by Eappetit or participating restaurant associates will render the Reward void.
* Points are void to the extent prohibited by law.


 12.  FEES AND EXPIRATION OF CARD BALANCES


There are no membership fees for the issuance, activation, and use of your account.  If your account remains dormant over the course of 24 months, earned points will be forfeited but purchased points will be refunded after deducting the processing fee. Points accumulated under the program are promotional and have no cash value.


13.  REGISTRATION AND LIABILITY FOR UNAUTHORIZED TRANSACTIONS


Users are responsible for all transactions associated with their reward account including unauthorized transactions.  However, if the device containing the EAPPoint is stolen or destroyed, the account can be replaced with a remaining balance on it at the time you contact Eappetit.  Member agrees to (a) immediately notify Eappetit of any unauthorized use of Member's email address and password or any other breach of security related to this website, the application, or the EAPPoints Program, and (b) ensure that Member logs out from Member's account at the end of each session.


14.  HOW THE EAPPOINTS SYSTEM WORKS


Members can use EAPPoints to pay for their meals.  You can purchase additional EAPPoints at the face value (100 pts = $1.00) and load into your account.
You can earn points through various activities; however earned points can only be accumulated through the Eappetit App.  These include:
* Signing-up
* Submitting a review (only verified reviews get points)
* Introducing a friend
* Performing a transaction (payment/order) through Eappetit
In addition, methods of earning points may be modified periodically.  Occasionally, Eappetit may allow a Member to earn additional Rewards via special earning opportunities or promotions.
* The amount of points offered for special earning opportunities will be stipulated in each special earning opportunity announcement.
* Member must comply with the terms of each special earning opportunity to earn any such additional points.
Although the value of the points is the same for both earned and purchased, Eappetit will provide a separate tracking system of earned and purchased points in your account.  We will use the earned points first before as a general rule.  (This is necessary in case we need to refund the purchased part of the point balance.)
Members can include tips and any other charges to their EAPPoint settlement.
