BTECH may at its sole discretion, restrict, suspend, amend, update, extend or otherwise alter the Program Terms at any time and without prior notice. If the Program Terms have been updated or altered, BTECH will post the updated version of the Program Terms on our Platform. In such case, redeemed purchases shall be governed by the Program Terms published and applicable at the time of purchase. Therefore, we advise our Users to review the Program Terms regularly.

The Program is intended for personal non-commercial use ONLY. Resellers are excluded from the Program and from earning Points. If BTECH mistakenly issues Reward Points for resale purposes, we shall reserve the right to deduct those improperly awarded Points at any time from you.

Users accept to occasionally receive text messages enclosing promotional material, changes of features or marketing activities. You accept that such e-mails or text messages shall satisfy any legal requirement that such communications be in writing.

Earning and Redeeming Policy

You may earn Reward Points each time you purchase any of our Products displayed on our website, Mobile Application or at any of our retail branches. Once your balance reaches a certain number of Reward Points, you will be eligible to redeem those accrued Points, in whole or in part, to purchase any of the Products identified by BTECH from time to time (“Eligible Purchases”) with no limits on the minimum number of Points to be redeemed.

Users agree and understand that accumulation on the Redeemed value is not allowed, and that redemption can only occur once. If you redeemed all of your Reward Points, you will return to a 0 balance.

You may redeem your accrued Reward Points with a Product of the same value as your Reward Points or less. In case the value of the Reward Points is lower than the value of purchase, you will be requested to pay the difference.

Rewards Points are non-transferrable and have no cash value. Nevertheless, Users are allowed to return and replace their Eligible Purchases pursuant to BTECH Return Policy set-forth hereinabove.   

Collected Reward Points shall expire 12 months from their earning date. To that end, Users will receive an SMS reminding them of the approach of their Reward Points expiry date.

BTECH reserves the right to deny or revoke the crediting or redeeming of accrued Points to any User at any time, if it is in BTECH’s reasonable belief that the redemption will be used for resale or commercial purposes or that the Reward Points have been improperly obtained or erroneously credited to such User. In such a case, Points awarded will be deemed forfeited by you and your account may be suspended or closed.

BTECH reserves the right to terminate or suspend User’s enrollment in the Program or revoking any or all of the Points, with or without advance notice, if we believe, at our reasonable discretion, that such User has violated or breached any of the terms and covenants contained in the Program Terms, and without any liability on our part due to the loss of your Reward Points or termination/suspension of your enrollment in the Program.

Each time you redeem your Points, you will receive an SMS on your mobile number stating your updated balance to allow you to easily track your Reward Points Balance.
