GIVE ME MORE STRIPES® PROMOTION RULES
The Give Me More Stripes® $8 Spending Reward Promotion is sponsored by TGI Friday's Inc., 4201 Marsh Lane, Carrollton, TX 75007. To participate in this Promotion you need to be a member of the TGI Fridays Give Me More Stripes® Guest Recognition Program. If you're not already a member, you can fix that by going to www.givememorestripes.com. Simply follow the online instructions. No assembly required!
Participation in the $8 Spending Reward Promotion is subject to the Give Me More Stripes® Program Terms & Conditions, these Promotion Rules, as well as any additional rules or terms that we may post at www.givememorestripes.com from time to time.
The $8 Spending Reward Promotion will begin at 12:00:00 AM CT, April 1, 2008, and is subject to cancellation at any time without notice (though we realize that would not be polite).
During the Promotion you will receive credit for each dollar you spend at participating TGI Fridays restaurants for Qualifying Purchases. (What's a "Qualifying Purchase," you ask? That's one of the things you're supposed to read about on the Give Me More Stripes® Terms & Conditions on this website! Read 'em. Know 'em. Live 'em!). When the amount of your total purchases reaches $100 you will receive a spending reward coupon good for $8.00 (that's dollars, not rubles!) towards your next purchase at a participating TGI Fridays restaurant. For each additional $100 you spend on Qualifying Purchases you will receive an additional $8 spending reward coupon.
Each reward coupon will be sent to the email address you provided during registration, in most cases within a few days after you reach the required purchase amount. You'll have to print and present the coupon to receive your reward. Your coupon will expire if not used at a participating TGI Fridays restaurant within 30 days from the date it is issued; so don't put it in your safe as part of your retirement fund. Coupons may not be used towards payment of tax or tip or for the purchase of alcoholic beverages. The coupon has no cash value (unless your hair stylist is extremely gullible) and no change will be given for coupon redemption. Your $8 spending reward coupon will have a serialized code tied to your membership so you can only use it one time.
Lost, stolen or expired coupons will not be replaced. Coupons may not be used in conjunction with other rewards or discounts. TGI Friday's Inc. reserves the right to substitute an award of equal or greater value for any reason. Limit of one spending reward per Member per visit. Void where prohibited. Batteries not included. Action figures sold separately.
GIVE ME MORE STRIPES® TERMS AND CONDITIONS
Brace yourself! This page contains some intense legal language from our lawyers. (We really should feed them more often.) Please don't be offended; they just want to make sure you understand all the rules. They love their rules and we promised them that they would get a chance to write them down somewhere, and to use big words, and to pretend to be really mean. We doubt that after reading them you'll say "Heck, no - I'm not agreeing to that!" but read them just in case.
The Give Me More Stripes® Program (the "Program") is a customer recognition program that rewards enrolled TGI Fridays guests ("Members") for dining with us. Enrollment, membership, and all related benefits of the Program, including the use of this website (our "Website"), are offered to you by TGI Friday's Inc., a subsidiary of Carlson Restaurants Inc., at its discretion. The Program is restricted to participating TGI Fridays restaurants located within the 50 United States, excluding U.S. territories ("Participating Restaurants"). Your participation in this Program is subject to these Terms & Conditions (these "Terms"), including any changes made to these Terms in the future.
Still with us? 5 definitions in a single paragraph. It must have been a fun day down in the legal department! Hang in there.
ELIGIBILITY AND ENROLLMENT.
To enroll in the Program you must be a legal resident of the 50 United States (excluding U.S. territories), have a valid postal address with zip code and valid email address and telephone number. You must also be at least 21 years of age as of the date of enrollment. Businesses, corporations, joint ventures, partnerships, groups, associations, and other non-personal entities are not eligible to participate in the Program. Employees of TGI Friday's Inc., its affiliates and subsidiaries, and others who are eligible for employee-based discounts or benefits are not eligible to participate in the Program. Your membership is nontransferable.
To enroll in the Program you must complete the online application process at this Website, where you will be asked to provide certain identifying information, including your email address and telephone number. All information submitted must be truthful and accurate. It is your responsibility to ensure that the information you have provided remains current, and to promptly notify us (by updating your online profile) of any changes. There are alternative methods to join Give Me More Stripes® including, but not limited to, in-restaurant sign-up, text message JOIN to MYTGIF (698443), partner promotions or websites or via TGI Fridays promotions or contests. Enrollment begins upon activation of your account, which in most cases will be the day you complete your online registration. Upon successful enrollment, you will be assigned an account number. To receive credit for your meal, provide your account number or the phone number you used to sign up to your server in the restaurant to identify yourself as a member. Information about current promotions will be sent to the valid email address you provide.
PROMOTIONS AND MEMBER BENEFITS.
The terms of specific Program promotions will be disclosed at the time of the offering. Our Website will explain Member benefits and specific promotion details, which are subject to change at any time. Some promotions may include rewards based on the dollar amount you spend on purchases of food and beverage at Participating Restaurants. For more information about what types of purchases count toward rewards ("Qualifying Purchases"), see the paragraph entitled "Non-Qualifying Purchases" below. To receive credit for a Qualifying Purchase you should identify yourself as a Give Me More Stripes® Member and provide either your account number or the phone number you used to sign up to your server.
Give Me More Stripes is an email-based program. All member benefits, promotions, program updates, and account-based operational messages will be communicated to Members via email.
During an ongoing promotion, our Website may contain a summary of your purchase balance, listing the amount you have spent in Qualifying Purchases during a promotion. We will credit your account with the amounts of Qualifying Purchases only after the Participating Restaurant requests us to do so. We are not responsible for any delay or failure to record purchases to your account.
Some restaurants may not participate in the Program so be sure to check with the restaurant location before you make your purchase. We will attempt to credit your account with Qualifying Purchases on a timely basis. However, you have the responsibility of making sure that your purchases are properly credited. Please retain copies of your receipts and/or account statements for your records. Any claim for purchases not credited accurately must be received by us before the end of the then-current promotional offer. We have no liability for (a) any printing, production, typographical, mechanical, or other errors regarding the earning, redemption or accumulation of participation credit or any other aspect of the Program; (b) any delay or failure to credit your account; or (c) any failure to provide Program communication. We reserve the right to invalidate purchases credited to your account if we determine that such purchases were improperly credited to your account or obtained fraudulently. We reserve the right to require proof of Qualifying Purchases recorded in your account, and we reserve the right to delay the processing of any reward, without notice to you, in order to assure compliance with these Terms. You are responsible for restricting access to and maintaining the confidentiality of your account and password, and you agree to accept responsibility for the activities of anyone using your password. The Program is void where prohibited. (We just knew they were going to put "void where prohibited" in here somewhere. At least they didn't throw in that other standard line about other "exclusions may apply.")
Qualifying Purchases shall not include any purchase of alcoholic beverages, unless such purchase also includes food items. The dollar amount of a Qualifying Purchase may not include the amount of any sales tax, state fees, delivery charges, or gratuities added to the food and beverage charge. Certain items may be excluded from credit in a particular promotion. Purchases of TGI Fridays gift cards will not count as Qualifying Purchases. Your account will be credited for Qualifying Purchases made with a gift card, but will not be credited for your purchase of a gift card.
Other exclusions may apply. (Oops.)
RESTRICTIONS ON USE AND REDEMPTION.
We are not obligated to apply Program rewards to pay for the following: sales tax, state fees, delivery charges, or gratuities. We reserve the right at any time to limit Program enrollment, or to establish different levels of Program participation or targeted offers that may result in promotions that are not available to all Members. We may discontinue your membership and void or cancel your account at any time, for any reason, without notice to you, including if we suspect that you have engaged in fraud or theft, or have otherwise acted illegally, or in violation of these Terms. These rights are in addition to any other legal or equitable remedy which may be available to us under applicable law.
You may only enroll in the Program for yourself, and may only participate in the Program using your own account. You cannot participate in the Program on behalf of other Members or non-members.
You should not rely upon the continued availability of the Program, or any earning or redemption offers, merchandise or other offers made in connection with the Program. All rewards are available while supplies last and are subject to change and/or revocation without notice.
PROGRAM OR ACCOUNT TERMINATION OR MODIFICATION.
You may cancel your Give Me More Stripes® membership at any time by unsubscribing here: http://www.tgifridays.com/givememorestripes-unsubscribe
Cancellation may take up to 10 business days to finalize. During that period, you may receive previously scheduled promotional emails. You will forfeit your entitlement to any Program reward immediately upon de-activation or termination of your membership.
If you do not make a Qualifying Purchase during any 12-month period, your account balance may be reduced to zero and you may forfeit any Member participation credit you had accumulated.
We reserve the right to deactivate any Member account that has not earned a Qualifying Purchase during a period greater than 12 months.
We reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to (a) suspend, change or terminate the Program, any individual promotion, or any member benefit, in whole or in part; (b) modify, limit or suspend the use and/or redemption of any participation credit, such as Qualifying Purchase credit, in any respect; (c) modify or change redemption procedures, including the amount of participation credit required for particular rewards; (d) modify, limit or suspend the collection of participation credit, including but not limited to imposing time limits and changes in participation credit values. We may make these changes even though the changes may affect the value of Member participation credits already accumulated at any time and from time to time. Your continued participation in the Program after any modification to the Program and/or these Terms will indicate your acceptance of any such modification. You expressly agree to assume responsibility for reviewing the Terms for any updates or modifications. If you don't agree to any changes to the Program or these Terms, your sole remedy is to deactivate your account (and forfeit any unused participation credit).
You expressly agree to waive and set aside your respective rights and obligations under any applicable law in the event of any termination of the Program or modification of these Terms to the extent that such law requires any judicial pronouncement for the termination of the Program or modification of these Terms. We also agree to waive and set aside our respective rights and obligations in this regard. (See? Lawyers really can be nice when you get past all of that "including but not limited to" and "sole remedy" mumbo jumbo. You can even train them to be gentle with cats and small children.)
MEMBER COMMUNICATIONS & PROGRAM PARTICIPATION.
When you join the Give Me More Stripes® program, you are required to provide your email address and phone number. The program is an email-based program, using email as the distribution channel for all earned rewards, program benefits, program changes and update messages and all promotions and offers available to members. If you no longer wish to receive email communications from TGI Fridays, you will forfeit the ability to earn and use Give Me More Stripes® credits that you have earned. There are no alternative distribution methods for the above mentioned awards and communications besides email. If you wish to opt-out of emails from Give Me More Stripes® you will no longer receive emails from TGI Fridays unless you decide to opt-in at a later date. If you opt-out of emails, please allow up to 10 business days for your request to go into effect.
MEMBER OBLIGATIONS AND REPRESENTATIONS.
By submitting an application to enroll in the Program, or by taking part in the Program, you are expressly agreeing to be bound by these Terms, as they may be amended from time to time. You agree not to misuse Program privileges by engaging in conduct that is detrimental to us, including without limitation: having multiple accounts; making purchases on the behalf of other Members; participating in purchasing or redemption fraud; or using any robot, spider, other automatic device or manual process to transact with or monitor the Program.
You agree to comply at all times with all laws, rules, and regulations that are applicable to you. You hereby acknowledge that you may only participate in the Program if and to the extent that such participation is permitted by all applicable laws, rules, and regulations, and that your application for enrollment is subject to our acceptance. We may refuse at any time to enroll you, or to restrict, modify, or terminate your participation in the Program without liability to you or any law, rule, or regulation.
You agree to provide only accurate and true information to us at all times. You agree to comply with all of these Terms and with the terms of any affiliated and/or related programs, offers and promotions at all times. You agree to promptly notify us of any change in address, whether mail or email, by updating personal information on our Website. You agree that your participation in the Program is entirely at your own risk. ("At your own Risk?!" That's a little spooky. We promise we don't have the slightest clue what these legal guys are talking about.)
LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY AND RELEASE OF CLAIMS AGAINST US.
NEITHER TGI FRIDAY'S INC., ITS PARENTS, AFFILIATES, OR SUBSIDIARIES, PROGRAM AFFILIATES, SUPPLIERS, OR ANY OF THEIR OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES OR AGENTS ("ASSOCIATES") SHALL HAVE ANY RESPONSIBILITY OR LIABILITY FOR ANY CLAIM, LOSS, INJURY, DAMAGE, DELAY, ACCIDENT, COST OR EXPENSE (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ATTORNEYS' FEES AND COSTS OF SUIT), NOR FOR ANY INCIDENTAL, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, PUNITIVE, EXEMPLARY, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES (COLLECTIVELY, "LOSSES AND DAMAGES"), DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO (I) THESE TERMS; (II) THE PROGRAM OR THE WEBSITE; (III) ANY FAILURE, DELAY OR DECISION BY US IN ADMINISTERING THE PROGRAM; (IV) ANY UNAUTHORIZED USE OF A CARD OR ANY BREACH OF SECURITY BEYOND OUR REASONABLE CONTROL; (V) ANY OFFER, REPRESENTATION, STATEMENT OR CLAIM ABOUT THE PROGRAM MADE BY US OR ANY ASSOCIATE OR ANY OTHER PERSON OR ENTITY; OR (VI) THE PURCHASE, REDEMPTION FOR OR USE OF ANY REWARDS WHETHER MADE AVAILABLE BY US, ONE OF OUR ASSOCIATES OR ANY OTHER PERSON OR ENTITY, OR OTHERWISE. The foregoing limitations of liability shall apply whether the alleged liability is based on contract, negligence, tort, strict liability or any other basis, even if we or our affiliates or our or their representatives have been advised of or should have known of the possibility of such losses and damages, and without regard to the success or effectiveness of other remedies.
IN NO EVENT SHALL OUR AND OUR AFFILIATES' MAXIMUM COMBINED AGGREGATE LIABILITY HEREUNDER FOR ANY CAUSE WHATSOEVER IN ANY CALENDAR YEAR ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH ANY OF THE MATTERS DESCRIBED ABOVE EXCEED TWENTY-FIVE UNITED STATES DOLLARS (U.S. $25.00).
By participating in the Program you hereby agree: (a) to release us and all of our affiliates, subsidiaries, franchisees, Program partners, vendors, distributors and independent contractors, and each of their officers, directors, employees and agents from any and all liability, loss or damage incurred with respect to the issuance, receipt, possession, and/or use or misuse of any reward; (b) under no circumstances will you be permitted to obtain rewards for, and you hereby waive all rights to claim, punitive, incidental, consequential, special or any other damage or loss, other than for actual out-of-pocket expenses; (c) all causes of action or claims arising out of or connected with the Program, or any reward shall be resolved individually, without resort to any form of class action; and (d) any and all claims, judgments, and awards shall be limited to actual out-of-pocket costs incurred, excluding attorneys' fees and court costs.
Getting kind of loud in here with all of these capitalized words, huh? As best as we can understand, this is our friendly legal department's way of saying "if your boss fires you because you won't spend your TGI Fridays rewards on him and, in your subsequent rage, you punch the wall and break your hand...don't sue us because that's your own fault...or maybe your boss's...but definitely not our fault."
THE PROGRAM AND THE WEBSITE ARE PROVIDED "AS-IS," WITHOUT WARRANTY OR REPRESENTATION OF ANY KIND. WE HEREBY DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES AND REPRESENTATIONS OF ANY KIND WHATSOEVER, WHETHER WRITTEN OR ORAL, EXPRESS, IMPLIED, STATUTORY, OR ARISING BY OPERATION OF LAW, COURSE OF DEALING, COURSE OF PERFORMANCE OR USAGE OF TRADE, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, TITLE, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT, WITH RESPECT TO THE PROGRAM AND THE WEBSITE.
Again with the shouting. Looks like somebody in the legal department could use a little more Fridays.
Your application for enrollment, participation, and redemption of rewards in connection with the Program are subject to our verification and acceptance, which acts shall be deemed made, performed, transacted, and closed in the State of Texas, USA. By participating in the Program, you agree that the laws of the State of Texas, without regard to any conflict of laws rules, will govern your and our observance of these Terms. Remember the Alamo!
If we fail to act with respect to your breach or anyone else's breach of these Terms on any occasion, we do not waive our right to act with respect to future or similar breaches.
These Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and us regarding your participation in the Program, your entitlement to earn rewards through the Program, and your entitlement to any other benefits of the Program, and supersede all prior agreements between us, whether oral or written, including, without limitation, all previous versions of these Terms.
If any provision of these Terms (including limitations of liability) is held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be void, invalid, contrary to law, or unenforceable for any reason, such provision shall be deemed changed and interpreted so as to best accomplish the objectives of the original provision to the fullest extent allowed by law and the remaining provisions of this Agreement shall remain in full force and effect.
We are the final authority as to the interpretation of these Terms and as to any other questions or disputes regarding the Program or any reward.
Well, now. That seems a little heavy-handed. Tell you what; if you have any problems or questions just contact us at http://www.tgifridays.com/contact, and we'll see what we can do. Don't worry; we don't let our attorneys have email accounts. Nobody talks to them anyway.
