8. HOW TO REDEEM PROMOTION REWARDS
8.1 In consideration for your participation in Brand Engagements in accordance with the relevant Brand Engagement Terms, you may be entitled to a reward as will be specified on the applicable page of the App (‘Reward’).
8.2 Once you have taken all steps required of you to participate in the Brand Engagement you may be required to provide evidence that such steps have been completed, for example by uploading a photograph of stocked items (‘Evidence’) (all Evidence requirements shall be displayed on the App or in the Brand Engagement Terms).
8.3 The Evidence you upload to the App of your participation in the Brand Engagement shall be subject to our review. During this period whilst we review the Evidence you have submitted, any Reward payable will be shown as pending in Your App Account.
8.4 One we have approved your Evidence an amount equivalent to the Reward shall be credited to Your App Account.
8.5 Subject always to the other provisions of these Terms, and in particular clauses 8.6, 8.11 and 12, you will be able to withdraw credit from Your App Account at any time provided that all withdrawals must be in multiples of £30 only. For example: (a) if the balance of Your App Account is under thirty pounds sterling (£30), you will not be able to withdraw that amount from Your App Account; (b) if the balance of Your App Account is eighty pounds sterling (£80), you will be able to withdraw sixty pounds sterling (£60); and (c) if the balance of Your App Account is one hundred and ten pounds sterling (£110), you will be able to withdraw ninety pounds sterling (£90). If you or we terminate Your App Account, or if you do not access or log into Your App Account for a continuous period of nine (9) months, your right to any credit balance in Your App Account shall be subject to the provisions of clause 12.
8.6 From time to time, Brand Engagements may be subject to Brand Engagement Terms that require you to withdraw the Reward relating to that Brand Engagement within a specific period of timing following the date that the Reward is credited to Your App Account (“Redemption Period”). The applicable Redemption Period will be clearly stated in the relevant Brand Engagement Terms that you accept as a condition of participation. Your right to withdraw your Reward from Your App Account will expire automatically without notice or liability to you at the end of the Redemption Period, following which time you will forfeit any entitlement to the Reward relating to the applicable Brand Engagement. It is your sole responsibility to ensure that you are aware of the applicable Redemption Period and that you withdraw your Reward prior to expiry of the Redemption Period. All withdrawals are subject to the withdrawal thresholds referred to in clause 8.5. If there is any conflict between this clause 8.6 and any other provision of these Terms, this clause 8.6 shall take precedence.
8.7 To redeem the credit on Your App Account you will simply need to press the `Redeem` button on the App. An invoice will then be generated via the App to show the amount to be redeemed plus all applicable tax liability.
8.8 We shall make payments to you of Rewards via BACS transfer. Once we have transferred payment to you, you will receive an email confirmation of such transfer. You will receive payment to your nominated bank account within six (6) Business Days (being a day other than a Saturday, Sunday or a day which is a public holiday in England) of redeeming the credit on Your App Account in accordance with clause 8.7.
8.9 You shall be responsible for providing us with correct and up to date details of your nominated bank account in order to facilitate payment to you. In the event that such details are incorrect or out of date we shall have no liability to make payment to you in respect of any Reward earned by you or any other sum owed by us to you.
8.10 You shall be responsible for all tax liability in respect of any Reward earned by you in connection with any Brand Engagement.
8.11 Without affecting our rights under clause 11, if at any time (whether during or after a Brand Engagement) we become aware or have reasonable grounds to believe that:
(a) you are or were ineligible to participate in the relevant Brand Engagement;
(b) you have acted fraudulently or in any other unlawful manner in connection with your participation in a Brand Engagement;
(c) your Evidence is inaccurate, incomplete and/or misleading or otherwise invalid,
you will immediately cease to be entitled to the relevant Reward and, if we have already paid the Reward to you, you will immediately repay to us an amount equivalent to such Reward upon receiving notice from us requiring the Reward to be repaid. We reserve the right to terminate your access to the App and your App Account or (at our option) to suspend your access to the App and your App Account until such time as we consider the matter resolved to our reasonable satisfaction.
