The Services (as defined below) offered by NOOM, Inc. d/b/a Loop & Tie (“Loop & Tie”) at www.loopandtie.com (either through a web site, a web widget, an application for a third-party web site or service, any mobile application, or any other similar platform, whether owned, controlled, operated or offered by Loop & Tie (collectively, the “Site”) are provided to parties registering with and using the Services (each such person, a “User” and collectively, the “Users”), whether such User (a “Purchaser”) is purchasing L&T Dollars (as defined below), using L&T Dollars to select and send Loop & Tie Gift Choices (as defined below) or such User (a “Recipient”) has received a Loop & Tie Gift Choice (as defined below), under these Terms of Service and any additional operating rules or policies that may be published by Loop & Tie on the Site. These Terms of Service are legally binding between each User and Loop & Tie, they comprise the entire agreement between each User and Loop & Tie and they supersede all prior agreements, arrangements or understandings between each User and Loop & Tie regarding the subject matter contained herein. BY ACCESSING THE SITE, COMPLETING THE REGISTRATION PROCESS, PURCHASING L&T DOLLARS, OR SELECTING OR REDEEMING A LOOP & TIE GIFT CHOICE, EACH USER ACKNOWLEDGES THAT HE OR SHE HAS READ, UNDERSTANDS AND AGREES TO BE BOUND BY ALL OF THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS IN THESE TERMS OF SERVICE, WITHOUT LIMITATION OR QUALIFICATION. No agency, partnership, joint venture, employee-employer or franchiser-franchisee relationship is intended or created by these Terms of Service.
2. PROHIBITED SERVICES
Use of the Services is void where prohibited and by using the Services, each User represents and warrants that such User has the right, authority, and capacity to enter into these Terms of Service and to abide by all the terms and conditions herein. Each User must be at least 18 years of age (or have reached the age of majority if that is not 18 years of age where such User lives) to use the Services, provided, however, that certain gifts may require the Purchaser and/or the Recipient to be a certain age in order to use the Services or redeem an LTGC (as defined below). Each User swears and affirms that he or she is over the age of 21 if such User is selecting or redeeming an LTGC for any Goods (as defined below) which contains alcohol (an “Alcohol Product”). Loop & Tie reserves the right to prosecute to the fullest extent of the law: any attempt by any User to misconstrue his or her age, either directly or indirectly; or any attempt to use the Site or the Services to provide an Alcohol Product to a person under the age of 21. Selection by a Purchaser, and redemption by a Recipient, of any Alcohol Products is subject to all applicable laws.
Users may register on the Site to (i) select an electronic gift (a “Loop & Tie Gift Choice” or “LTGC”), (ii) redeem an LTGC or (iii) view and edit their account (“Account”). In order to register with Loop & Tie, Users may be required to provide, among other information, Facebook account validation, a valid email address (which will be used as a unique identifier for User’s Account), a valid phone number and create a password, as appropriate. Purchaser and Recipient are solely responsible for determining if redemption of an LTGC is appropriate, and Loop & Tie accepts no liability for any such redemption, the refusal to redeem an LTGC, for the acts or omissions of any Recipient prior to or following redemption of an LTGC, or for lost or stolen LTGCs.
4. DESCRIPTION OF SERVICE
The Site allows Purchasers to purchase L&T Dollars and to use such L&T Dollars to select LTGC for a Recipient, such as a friend, colleague, family member or other acquaintance, in various denominations specified on the Site (such denominations, “Gift Collections”) and each such LTGC can then be redeemed by the Recipient for the products or services (the “Goods”) offered on the Site in such Gift Collections, which shall then be shipped by Loop & Tie, or a third party on behalf of Loop & Tie, to the Recipient (collectively, the “Services”). Such prices are subject to change at any time, with or without notice. All applicable sales taxes (computed to the nearest cent) are included in the total of each order.GOODS
A list of available Goods is provided on the Site and may vary by Gift Collection. Loop & Tie reserves the right to make changes in the list of Goods in any Gift Collection, at any time, with or without notice, and does not guarantee that specific Goods will be available at all times. Loop & Tie has the right to place additional restrictions on LTGCs, including without limitation, the Goods for which an LTGC can be redeemed, the quantities of LTGC’s that may be redeemed at any given time, and any stipulations with respect to the shipment of any Goods.TERMS OF SALE
Each LTGC is valid for the redemption of one (1) specified Good in the applicable Gift Collection. Unless additional transactions take place, LTGCs are redeemable only in the Gift Collection for which they were selected, as specified on the Site. Purchaser will be required to provide a valid email address or mobile phone number for the Recipient. The Recipient must have a web-enabled computer or mobile device capable of loading and running the Site and must also be able to receive email, text messages and/or Facebook notifications (standard text messaging and/or data rates will apply where applicable). When a Recipient desires to redeem an LTGC, such Recipient must visit the Site, select the applicable Goods, and provide a valid shipping address within the continental United States. The Recipient is responsible for providing accurate and complete delivery information to receive Goods. Should a selected Good no longer be available, Loop and Tie will attempt to notify the recipient, at which time the Recipient may choose to receive a substitute Good. Once the Recipient redeems the LTGC, it will not be available for any further use. Purchaser represents and warrants that it has the right to provide all information to Loop & Tie necessary to order and provide the LTGC or otherwise use the Services. If a Recipient declines an LTGC, an LTGC is bounced, of if the LTGC is cancelled because the Recipient fails to redeem the LTGC, in each case, within 1 year after receipt of the LTGC, L&T Dollars correlating to the price of such LTGC will be deposited back into the Purchaser’s Account.REFUNDS AND RETURNS
An LTGC is only redeemable by a Recipient directly on the Site and cannot be redeemed for cash, in whole or in part, unless required by law. All selections for LTGCs are non-refundable and non-reversable. Additionally, LTGCs cannot be returned or exchanged for L&T Dollars. However, Loop & Tie may, in its sole discretion, cancel any order and refund any amounts paid. Goods may not be returned unless they are deemed defective upon receipt by the Recipient. Any such returns must be coordinated directly with Loop & Tie.
5. L&T Dollars.
Users may purchase a limited, personal, non-transferable, non-sublicensable, revocable license to use L&T Dollars. “L&T Dollars” are a form of Loop & Tie currency that may be applied as a credit only towards the selection of LTGCs. L&T Dollars do not have a cash value and so they are not refundable for cash, except where required by applicable law. Resale of L&T Dollars is strictly prohibited. L&T Dollars are issued in U.S. dollars. L&T Dollars cannot be exchanged for cash or deposited into a bank account and cannot be used to purchase other L&T Dollars. Users may only purchase L&T Dollars from Loop & Tie through the Site and not in any other way, unless explicitly approved by Loop & Tie. Regardless of the terminology used, L&T Dollars represent a limited license right governed by these Terms of Service. Except as otherwise prohibited by applicable law, L&T Dollars obtained by a User are licensed to the User, and each User hereby acknowledges that no title or ownership in or to L&T Dollars is being transferred or assigned hereunder. These Terms of Service should not be construed as a sale of any rights in L&T Dollars. Any L&T Dollars balance shown in a Purchaser’s Account does not constitute a real-world balance or reflect any stored value, but instead constitutes a measurement of the extent of the User’s license. L&T Dollars do not incur fees for non-use; provided, however, that the license granted hereunder to Users shall terminate, or be altered, in connection with the expiration of purchased L&T Dollars. Additionally, the license granted hereunder will terminate when Loop & Tie ceases providing the Services or when User’s Account is otherwise terminated.
Users may not sell or otherwise distribute access to L&T Dollars to any other person or entity. L&T Dollars cannot be combined, co-mingled or otherwise merged with L&T Dollars in any other Account whether registered to a specific User or not. Unauthorized or fraudulent use, resale, acquisition or distribution of L&T Dollars is prohibited. Loop & Tie may cancel, revoke or otherwise prevent the issuance of L&T Dollars if Loop & Tie suspect any unauthorized or fraudulent use and/or if we mistakenly credit a User’s Account with L&T Dollars.TYPES OF L&T DOLLARS
There are two types of L&T Dollars: (1) Paid L&T Dollars, which are purchased or given in exchange for express consideration in certain incremental values; and (2) Promotional L&T Dollars, which are given to certain customers in connection with a specific promotion.EXPIRATION OF L&T DOLLARS
Promotional L&T Dollars expire based on the terms of the particular promotion. Unless the terms of such promotion for Promotional L&T Dollars provides an earlier date of expiration, all L&T Dollars will expire after two (2) years of inactivity with respect to the Purchaser’s Account (except where expiration after two (2) years of such date is prohibited by law, in which case, they will expire at the first legal date or, if not legally permitted to expire, they will not expire at all), regardless of reactivation. Expired L&T Dollars may not be used to select LTGCs. In the event L&T Dollars are returned to a Purchaser’s Account (because the Recipient declines an LTGC, an LTGC is bounced, of because an LTGC is cancelled because the Recipient fails to redeem such LTGC, in each case, within 1 year after receipt of the LTGC,) after the correlating L&T Dollars used to select such LTGC have expired, the term of the L&T Dollars will be renewed for an addition two (2) years.PURCHASE OF L&T DOLLARS
All L&T Dollars are saved in a User’s Account. By submitting an order to purchase L&T Dollars through the Site or through any other method offered by Loop & Tie, Purchaser authorize Loop & Tie or its designated payment processor to charge the credit card account Purchaser specifies for the payment amount. All payments are to be made in U.S. dollars using credit cards with billing addresses in the United States (as indicated by the zip code or country code that User provides when submitting payment). Users are responsible for all applicable charges, including any sales or use tax, duties, VAT, or other governmental taxes or fees payable in connection with such User’s purchase, and Loop & Tie reserves the right to collect such taxes or other fees from User at any time by charging such User’s provided credit card. Loop & Tie reserves the right to terminate a User’s Account for any reason, including credit card processing issues.
