4.1 Points. The Thought For Food Service may include opportunities for you to earn (including by completing actions or activities, or otherwise participating to the Thought For Food community), and use virtual points (“Platform Points”) and to obtain goods or other rewards in exchange for those points (together “Rewards”). Regardless of what they are called, Platform Points are not real money, do not have monetary value, and may never be redeemed for “real world” money, or other items of monetary value from outside the Thought For Food Service without our written permission. While we may use terms like “earn”, “trade-in”, or “cash-out” in reference to the Platform Points, we do so only for convenience and such terms in no way indicate that Platform Points have monetary value or are real money. You acknowledge that Platform Points are not real currency and are not redeemable for any sum of money from us at any time. We make no guarantee as to the nature, quality, or value of the features of the Thought For Food Service or any third-party good or services that will be accessible through the use of Platform Points, or the availability or supply of Platform Points. Platform Points and Rewards obtained via the Thought For Food Service are provided to you under a limited, personal, revocable, non-transferable, non-sublicenseable license to use within the Thought For Food Service. Platform Points and Rewards may not be transferred or resold in any manner, including, without limitation, by means of any direct sale or auction service. Rewards may be subject to a separate third-party license or agreement. Except as perhaps specifically provided to you in writing by a third party as to third-party Rewards, you have no property interest, right or title in or to any such Platform Points or Rewards appearing or originating in the Thought For Food Service or any other attributes associated with use of the Thought For Food Service. Any “virtual currency” balance shown in your account does not constitute a real-world balance or reflect any stored value, but instead constitutes a measurement of the extent of your license.
All Platform Points and Rewards are forfeited if your account or access to the Thought For Food Service is terminated or suspended for any reason, in our sole and absolute discretion, or if we discontinue availability of some or all of the Thought For Food Service. We may at any time expire free or promotional Platform Points given to you.
We have no liability for hacking or loss of your Platform Points or any goods or services obtained using Platform Points. We have no obligation to, and will not, reimburse you for any Platform Points or Rewards that are lost due to your violation of these Terms. We reserve the right, without prior notification, to limit the quantity of Platform Points or Rewards and to refuse to provide you with any Platform Points or Rewards. Price, exchangeability and availability of Platform Points and Rewards are determined by us in our sole discretion and are subject to change without notice. You agree that we have the absolute right to manage, distribute, regulate, control, modify, or eliminate Platform Points as we see fit in our sole discretion, and that we will have no liability for exercising such right.
You agree that under no circumstances are we liable to you for any damages or claims that may arise from the loss or use of your Platform Points regardless of the circumstances. You absolve us of any responsibility to maintain or update your Thought For Food account Platform Points or Rewards balance. However, if there is a loss of Platform Points in your account due to technical or operational problems with the Thought For Food Service, we will refund the lost Platform Points once the loss has been verified. Without limiting any of the foregoing, our maximum liability or responsibility to you is to refund the Platform Points lost.
4.2 Redeeming Points. You may from time to time be presented with opportunities to redeem Platform Points for Rewards. We will, in our sole discretion, determine and communicate the availability and exchange rate for any Platform Points and Rewards, which may be modified at any time. You must comply with any individual Reward limitations as indicated via the Thought For Food Service (or Platform Partner’s terms). We reserve the right to cancel, restrict or terminate Platform Points or Rewards at any time for any reason. All Rewards are subject to availability. All redemptions are subject to these Terms, any third- party terms associated with a Reward, and all limitations and requirements stated via the Thought For Food Services.
You may choose a Reward that is still available for which you have accumulated sufficient Platform Points for redemption. Select the Reward you wish to use and follow and instructions to complete the redemption process. As part of the redemption process, you may receive a confirmation email or message from us or our designee or Rewards partner and, when applicable, an email or message containing the Platform Points in the form of a link, code, coupon, or similar means. Emails or messages will be sent to the email address or other contact information assigned to your account.
All acquisitions of Platform Points and redemptions for Rewards are final. Once Platform Points has been lost or spent, it will be subtracted from your account and cannot be refunded or returned, except in our sole discretion. No Platform Points will be re-credited to your account in the event of a return or exchange of a Reward, or any problem with any Rewards.
