We may assess a late charge if you do not pay the Service Fees on time. We may suspend or cancel your Service if you fail to pay the Service Fees in full on time.

  1. TAP Rewards

8.1 The purpose of TAP Rewards is to increase consumer loyalty by rewarding you for certain qualifying purchases and other activities.

You are solely responsible for ensuring the confidentiality of your Account login information and maintaining the security of such information. You agree not to authorize any other person to use your Account for any purpose. Except as otherwise provided by applicable law, you are solely responsible for all transactions and other activities authorized or performed using your Account, whether authorized by you or not. If you believe any of your Account credentials, such as your password, have been obtained or used by any unauthorized person or you become aware of any other breach or attempted breach of the security of the Services or your Account, you must notify us immediately by emailing us at [email protected].

We use Plaid Technologies, Inc. (“Plaid”) to gather users’ data from financial institutions. By using the Services, you grant us and Plaid the right, power and authority to act on your behalf to access and transmit your personal and financial information from the relevant financial institution. You agree to your personal and financial information being transferred, stored and processed by THE COMPANY and Plaid in accordance with the Plaid Privacy Policy. By redeeming TAP from your Account, you authorize us to electronically credit your Account for the applicable redemption amount. This authorization will remain in full force and effect until the termination of your Account or until you otherwise notify us by emailing us at [email protected]. You must notify us of any change in your Redemption Method at least 3 Business Days before any such change by emailing us at [email protected] or by updating your Account. If we do not receive notice at least 3 Business Days before any such change, we may attempt, in our sole discretion, to implement such change prior to any credit transaction performed hereunder. However, we assume no responsibility for our failure to do so.

(a) Linking Your Payment Card. In order to receive TAP Rewards or TAP Dollars (“TAP”) for qualifying purchases of goods or services, you must link at least one eligible debit or credit card (a “Payment Card”) to your Account. Please note that not all debit and credit cards are eligible to be linked to your Account. All determinations as to whether a card is eligible to be a Payment Card are at our sole discretion. For example, certain Visa, Mastercard, and American Express cards are not eligible to be linked to your Account, including, but not limited to, the following: prepaid cards, corporate cards, purchasing cards, store cards which can only be used at their respective retailers’ stores, government-administered prepaid cards (including Electronic Benefit (EBT) cards), healthcare cards (including Health Savings Account (HSA) cards, Flexible Spending Account (FSA) cards, and insurance prepaid cards), Visa Buxx, and cards that are not processed through the Visa U.S.A payment system, the Mastercard payment system, or the American Express payment system. In order to be eligible as a Payment Card, it must be issued by a U.S. bank. In addition, you may not be able to link a debit or credit card to your Account if the card is already linked to certain other third-party card-linked offer programs.

For more information on how we use your Payment Card transaction information, see the Privacy Policy. You may opt-out of transaction monitoring on the Payment Card(s) you have registered by de-linking them in the App. Please note that if you opt-out of transaction monitoring, certain features of the Services may not be available to you or the performance of certain features of the Services may be limited or not work at all.

(b) Use of Enrolled Cards and Transaction Information. By registering a Payment Card in connection with transaction monitoring, you authorize us to share your payment information with the third-parties that enable us to provide the Services (“Third-Party Service Providers”) and your Payment Card Network (e.g., Visa, Mastercard, American Express) so it knows you enrolled. You authorize the Payment Card Network to monitor transactions on your linked Payment Card(s) to identify qualifying purchases in order to determine whether you have qualified for or earned an offer linked to your Payment Card, and for the Payment Card Network to share such transaction details with us to enable your card-linked offer(s) and target offers that may be of interest to you. You agree that the Company and Third-Party Service Providers may view your transactions made by you with participating merchants. You authorize participating merchants to provide the Company with historical transaction data.

(c) Receiving TAP. Subject to these Terms, we will automatically provide TAP to you when you purchase qualifying goods or services with your Payment Card or perform other qualifying actions identified by us. The Company, in its sole discretion, establishes the terms and conditions for each qualifying purchase or action and determines whether you have satisfied such terms and conditions to receive TAP. Such terms and conditions are set forth on the Website and the Application and may be updated, modified, suspended, or cancelled by the Company at any time in its sole discretion.

Not all qualifying purchases made with your Payment Card may be eligible for TAP if we are unable to obtain certain transaction information from the Payment Card Network associated with your Payment Card. For example, we may be unable to obtain certain transaction information from the Payment Card Network (and you may therefore be unable to receive TAP) for the following transactions made with your Payment Card:

(i) purchases that require you to enter your Personal Identification Number (“PIN”) for your Payment Card,

(ii) purchases you initiate through identification technology that substitutes for a PIN,

(iii) payments made through other payment methods (such as a digital wallet or a third-party payment application, where you may choose your Payment Card as a funding source but you do not present your Payment Card directly to the merchant),

(iv) payments of existing balances, balance transfers, or

(v) transactions that are not processed or submitted through the Payment Card Network.

Do not use a PIN when paying for a qualifying purchase with your Payment Card if you want the purchase to be eligible for TAP.

Without limiting any of the other terms of these Terms, if you return, chargeback, cancel, dispute, or otherwise request a refund for a qualifying purchase for which you have already received TAP, we will reduce the balance of TAP in your Account by the amount of TAP you received for such transaction. If the balance of TAP in your Account is less than the amount of TAP you received for such transaction, we will offset the applicable amount of TAP from TAP you would otherwise receive for future qualifying actions.

TAP that you receive as a result of a qualifying purchase at a merchant will generally be reflected in your Account within 1-7 Business Days after the date of purchase. TAP that you receive as a result of a qualifying online purchase will be reflected in your Account after the return period for the purchase has expired. In some cases, it may take longer for TAP to be reflected in your Account. For purposes of these Terms, “Business Day” means Monday through Friday, excluding federal banking holidays. Without limiting any of the other conditions of these Terms, if we award TAP to you in error (e.g., we later determine that you did not comply with the terms and conditions of a qualifying purchase or if you charge back a qualifying purchase), we reserve the right to remove the applicable TAP from your Account. You are responsible for making sure the TAP balance reflected in your Account is correct. If you believe that your Account does not accurately reflect TAP that you are eligible to receive, please contact us at [email protected].

TAP will remain in your Account until we approve redemption of TAP as described below.

(d) Redeeming TAP. Subject to these Terms and our approval, you may request that we redeem TAP from your Account. Prior to redeeming TAP, you must verify an email address associated with your Account. TAP may only be redeemed from your Account through the Site. The balance of TAP in your Account must be equivalent to at least $5 in order to redeem TAP unless otherwise permitted on the Site. We will generally deduct TAP from your Account either by redeeming a drink, providing a digital gift card or towards hotel bookings.

You are solely responsible for verifying the accuracy and completeness of any redemption transaction performed by us hereunder. You must notify us of any errors within 15 days of such information being made available to you. If you do not notify us of any such errors within such 15 days, you will forfeit the right to contest a transaction, except to the extent such forfeiture is prohibited by applicable law.

Certain limits may apply to your redemption of TAP. For example, unless otherwise permitted on the Site, you may only redeem TAP up to the equivalent of $500 in any day. Without limiting any of the other conditions of these Terms, we may modify the redemption terms for TAP at any time in our sole discretion.

(e) Taxes. All amounts paid to you hereunder are exclusive of any applicable withholding, sales, use, excise, value-added, or other taxes. You acknowledge and agree that you are responsible for determining, paying, withholding, filing, and reporting all taxes, duties, and other governmental assessments associated with your activity in connection with the Services. We are not responsible for determining whether you owe taxes in connection with your access to or use of the Services or for collecting, reporting, or remitting taxes arising from your access to or use of the Services, except for our own income taxes. You agree to promptly and fully reimburse and indemnify us for any taxes, penalties, and interest assessed by any taxing authority regarding amounts owed by you in connection with these

(f) Terms. Depending on applicable tax laws, your receipt of rewards may be subject to reporting to certain tax authorities. In accordance with such laws, we may be required to send to you and file certain forms with tax authorities, such as the IRS Form 1099-MISC (Miscellaneous Income), for any year in which rewards are issued to you. If we request information from you in order to complete a required tax form, and you fail to provide the requisite information, you will be prohibited from redeeming TAP from your Account until we receive the required information.

(g) Additional Terms, Representations, and Requirements. You may only access and use the Services for your own personal, non-commercial use and not on behalf of or for the benefit of any third party. You may not use TAP to make purchases, to transfer funds to third parties, or for any other purpose, except as expressly permitted by us. You acknowledge and agree that TAP:

(i) are issued solely by us and are not underwritten, funded, sponsored, or otherwise provided by any third party, including, but not limited to our merchant, brands, TAP Network partners, or other clients or business partners;

(ii) have no cash or other monetary value and do not act as a substitute for real currency; and

(iii) are not redeemable or exchangeable for real currency or other monetary value from HOOCH, TAP Network or any other third party, except as expressly provided in these Terms or otherwise required by applicable law. By accessing or using the Services, you agree not to seek to redeem or otherwise claim TAP from any third party, including, but not limited to our merchants, brands, TAP Network partners, or other clients or business partners.

You further acknowledge and agree that:

(i) the Company, in its sole discretion, may impose limits, terms, and conditions on TAP, including, but not limited to, limits on the amount of TAP that may be received and redeemed, and may adjust or suspend the TAP balance in your Account if we suspect fraudulent activities or detect irregularities;

(ii) the Company is not financial institutions and do not provide banking or payment processing services;

(iii) no consideration or other value is or has been given in exchange for TAP;

(iv) the Company is not a party to your Payment Card transactions; and

(v) the Company is not responsible, and has no liability for, any products or services that are paid for with your Payment Card. You must resolve all disputes related to any products or services that are paid for with your Payment Card directly with the applicable merchant and/or the financial institution that issued your Payment Card.

You may not transfer, assign, sell, gift, exchange, trade, convert, lease, sublicense, rent, or distribute TAP, except as expressly permitted by the Site and subject to applicable law. Any disposition or attempted disposition of TAP in violation of these Terms will be void and will result in immediate termination of your Account. We do not recognize or condone any third-party service that may be used to sell, exchange, transfer, or otherwise dispose of TAP, and we do not assume any responsibility for, and will not support, such transactions.

In addition to your other representations and warranties in these Terms, you represent and warrant that you will not access or use the Services to engage in any illegal, fraudulent, or other illicit activity. In order to redeem TAP on the Site, you may be required provide such other information and documents as requested by us to verify your identity and compliance with these Terms, including, but not limited to, your representations and warranties herein. For our compliance purposes and in order to provide the Services to you, you hereby authorize us to, directly or through a third party, obtain, verify, and record information and documentation for purposes of verifying your identity and your Payment Card and redemption Account information.

9. The Travel Services
9.1 The Services may facilitate your purchase of third-party travel services, such as hotel reservations (the “Travel Services”), from third-party suppliers (“Third-Party Suppliers”). Separate terms and conditions apply to the Travel Services. You should read these terms and conditions carefully before purchasing any Travel Services. By purchasing Travel Services through the Services, you agree to be bound by the terms and conditions of the Travel Services established by the applicable Third-Party Supplier and you authorize the applicable Third-Party Supplier to book the Travel Services on your behalf, and you agree that your Payment Card will be charged by the applicable Third-Party Supplier for the total reservation price at the time of booking. All hotels are nonrefundable, and no refunds will be provided for unused portions of hotel reservations. The hotel rate, including taxes and fees, is advertised by the Company, and does not include any applicable hotel service fees, charges for optional incidentals, or regulatory surcharges.  In the event the Company is informed by the hotel/resort developer that your selected travel dates are unavailable, we reserve the right to offer substitute accommodations of equal or greater value, if available; or you will receive a full refund for the total monies paid to us, excluding additional fees incurred for previous reservation modifications.

9.2 TAP rewarded from Travel Services will be issued to you after we have confirmed with our Third-Party Suppliers that you completed your stay at the hotel. Rewards will not be issued on hotel cancellations or no-shows. TAP you receive for your first booking through the Services, including any associated bonuses, will be reflected in your Account within 15 Business Days after your confirmed check out. In some cases, it may take longer for TAP to be reflected in your Account.

The hotel reserves the right to:

(a) Require you to provide 2 forms of identification at time of check-in (often a valid driver’s license, Military ID or Passport and a major credit card) as a condition of check-in;
(b) Refuse check-in to any party arriving at a hotel with more than the maximum number of guests allowed for the specific reserved room types;
(c) Collect a security deposit that shall be automatically debited on the day of check-in;
(d) Assess any applicable hotel service fees, charges for optional incidentals (i.e., minibar snacks or telephone calls), or regulatory surcharges upon check-out; and
(e) Based on availability at time of check-in, provide you a room with a different bed type than you specified at time of booking.

9.3 The price of the Travel Services will be as quoted on the Site from time to time, except in cases of obvious error. Third-Party Suppliers may change the availability, terms, and prices of the Travel Services at any time, but changes will not affect Travel Services already purchased, except as otherwise provided by the applicable Third-Party Supplier’s terms and conditions. Despite our best efforts, the availability, terms, and prices of the Travel Services listed on the Website and the Application may be incorrect. WE EXPRESSLY RESERVE THE RIGHT TO CORRECT ANY ERRORS ON THE WEBSITE AND THE APPLICATION. IN THE EVENT OF AN ERROR RELATED TO PENDING TRAVEL SERVICES PREVIOUSLY PURCHASED, THIRD-PARTY SUPPLIERS MAY OFFER YOU THE OPPORTUNITY TO KEEP YOUR PENDING TRAVEL SERVICES, IF AVAILABLE, AT THE CORRECT PRICE OR TO CANCEL YOUR TRAVEL SERVICES WITHOUT PENALTY. The Company and Third-Party Suppliers are under no obligation to provide the Travel Services to you at an incorrect (lower) price, even after you have been sent confirmation of your purchase of such Travel Services.

9.4 For any questions, comments, concerns, or other issues related to the Travel Services, you must contact the applicable Third-Party Supplier.
