BUYING A VOUCHER FROM ‘STEP UP TOGETHER’
It’s easy! Here are the Terms as they relate to buying a voucher from our website:
- You can only place an order via the website. An order is an offer by you to purchase a voucher and you understand that some vouchers may be subject to availability or otherwise limited. We reserve the right to remove from sale, and from the website, any voucher, or to amend or replace the voucher terms or any information relating to vouchers.
- If we accept an order you place, we will charge you, via the website and using such third party payment providers as we may determine, the voucher sale price per voucher for which we accept an order.
- On receipt of payment will issue the vouchers to you either:
- via the account through which they were ordered; or
- where there is no such account, via email to the email address used for submitting the order and making payment. We do not accept liability for the non-receipt of the email due to reasons beyond our control.
- Vouchers are issued by us as agent for the business described on the voucher.
USING YOUR ‘STEP UP TOGETHER’ VOUCHER
At ‘Step Up Together’, we don’t sell goods or services directly – rather, we sell vouchers on behalf of businesses and you can use them to buy what you want from the relevant business. Here are the Terms as they relate to using your voucher:
- The business described on the voucher is responsible for providing the voucher product and for redeeming the voucher. We do not assume any responsibility for the voucher product.
- The business provides the voucher product pursuant to its own terms and conditions. These include any voucher terms, and you should check these carefully before placing an order for a voucher. You are responsible for complying with the sale terms and conditions of the business.
- If the voucher can be used for services that require a booking, the business always reserves the right to cancel and reschedule bookings due to circumstances beyond its reasonable control.
- We make no representation or warranty as to the quality, merchantability, fitness for purpose, correspondence to description, or suitability of any voucher or any voucher product.
- You must not reproduce or re-sell vouchers we issue, but you can gift the vouchers unless the voucher terms expressly state otherwise. If you do so, you must ensure that the person to whom you gift is aware of the voucher terms which apply to the voucher.
- Unless the voucher terms expressly indicate otherwise, the voucher cannot be redeemed for cash or used in conjunction with other offers.
WHEN WE DO AND DON’T OFFER REFUNDS, CREDITS, ETC
As we sell vouchers on behalf of businesses, and do not supply the goods and services for which the vouchers can be redeemed, we only offer refunds or credits in very limited circumstances, but always in accordance with law.
If you would like to request a refund or credit, or if you have any questions about these matters, please email us at email@example.com within 30 days of either the purchase of the voucher or the event which you believe gives rise to a refund event. You should provide us with details of the voucher (i.e. date of purchase, voucher number, etc) and your reason for requesting a refund. You can also make contact direct with the business to whom the voucher relates and we generally encourage you to do this as a first step!
These are the Terms which relate to credits, refunds, and related matters.
- We will refund an amount or, where appropriate, issue a credit note or take other action, if:
- an administrative or technical error has caused an incorrect voucher sale price to be charged to you (in relation to which we have received payment);
- a voucher was promoted on the website in a manner that was fundamentally in error, including where the voucher terms were materially incorrect and which remained uncorrected by us;
- we are required by law to do so; or
- we otherwise think it fair and reasonable to do so having regard to all the circumstances.
- We will generally not refund or provide a credit note, etc, if:
- the voucher has simply expired according to its voucher terms;
- you change your mind after an order has been accepted by us;
- you failed to read these Terms or any relevant voucher terms;
- you are unable to redeem the voucher on your preferred date, time or place;
- you are dissatisfied with the voucher product;
- you fail to comply with the voucher terms or the terms and conditions of the relevant business; or
- you fail to take reasonable steps to redeem the voucher having regard to the voucher product and any stated redemption period.
