6. Creating an Account on our Site
If you create an account on our Site, you may only create and hold one account that you are solely responsible for managing. Your account is non-transferrable and may not be sold, combined or otherwise shared with any other person. If you violate any of these limitations we may terminate your account and, without limitation, you may forfeit any pending, current or future promotional account credits and any unredeemed Lifestyle Deals in your account. If we terminate your account, you may not re-enroll or join under a new account unless we formally invite you. If you commit fraud or falsify information in connection with your use of the Site or in connection with your Arore Communications account, your account will be terminated immediately and we reserve the right to hold you liable for any and all damages that we suffer, to pursue legal action through relevant local and national law enforcement authorities and to notify your Internet Service Provider of any fraudulent activity we associate with you or your use of the Site.
6. Terms of Sale
Lifestyle Deals you purchase through our Site as a Arore Communications account holder are special promotional offers that you purchase from participating Merchants through our service. The Lifestyle Deals are redeemable for certain goods, services or experiences offered by, or facilitated through, the Merchant identified on the Lifestyle Deal. The Merchant is solely responsible for redeeming the Lifestyle Deal. The Merchant is the issuer of the Lifestyle Deal and is fully responsible for all goods and services it provides to you and for any and all injuries, illnesses, damages, claims, liabilities and costs (“Liabilities”) it may cause you to suffer, directly or indirectly, in full or in part, whether related to the use or redemption of a Lifestyle Deal or not. You waive and release Arore Communications and its subsidiaries, affiliates, partners, officers, directors, employees and agents from any Liabilities arising from or related to any act or omission of a Merchant in connection with your use of a Lifestyle Deal or the services/goods it provides in connection with it.
By purchasing any Lifestyle Deal you agree to the terms of this Agreement and these Terms of Sale. By purchasing, viewing a mobile version, printing, accepting, using or attempting to use any Lifestyle Deal, you agree to these Terms of Sale specifically (“rules”) the terms on the Lifestyle Deal itself and any additional, deal specific terms advertising the Lifestyle Deal at the time of purchase (collectively, the “fine print” regardless of how labeled). These rules apply to all promotional Lifestyle Deals that we make available, unless a particular Lifestyle Deal’s fine print states otherwise, and except as otherwise required by law. In the event of a conflict between these rules and a Lifestyle Deal’s fine print, the Lifestyle Deal’s fine print will control.
Arore Communications is a service provider for the Merchant identified on the Lifestyle Deal and the Merchant is the sole issuer of the Lifestyle Deal. Lifestyle Deals have two separate values: (a) the “amount paid” and (b) the promotional value. The “promotional value” is the additional value beyond the amount paid. Together, the amount paid and the promotional value equals the “full offer value” of the Lifestyle Deal. For example, if you pay $20 for a Lifestyle Deal that gets you $50 of goods or services from a Merchant, the full offer value is $50, the amount paid is $20 (this amount does not expire until it is used or is refunded), and the promotional value is $30 (this amount expires on the date stated on the Lifestyle Deal unless expiration of the promotional value is prohibited by law).
If a Merchant or venue refuses to honour any Lifestyle Deal, Arore Communications will refund the amount paid upon request in the original form of payment, or will credit the Arore Communications account of the purchaser with an equivalent number of Arore Communications “Bucks” for future purchases on the Site. Arore Communications Bucks do not expire. Need a refund or have a question? contact us here or call 1 (877) 731-7227 (Monday through Friday, 9-5 pacific time). Lifestyle Deals are not redeemable for cash, unless required by law. Unauthorized or unlawful reproduction, resale, modification or trade of Lifestyle Deals is prohibited.
