Terms and conditions

GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS HEDE FASHION CLUB PROGRAMME

These Terms and Conditions (“Terms”) will govern your membership of the customer loyalty programme for Hede Fashion Outlet (the “Centre”) named the “Hede Fashion Club Programme” (the “Programme”). The Programme enables you to receive benefits, discounts and special offers from retailers of the Centre participating in the Programme (the “Participating Retailers”).
These Terms will also govern the use of your Hede Fashion Club card or app (the “HFC Card/App”). Use of your HFC Card/App constitutes acceptance of these Terms, including acceptance of the Privacy Policy (section 4).
These Terms can be consulted at any time at www.hedefashionoutlet.se or can be obtained at the information centre of the Centre (the “Information Centre”).
The Programme is operated and provided to you by Hede Fashion Outlet AB, (Business Identification Number 556575-4750) with its registered office at Kungsparksvägen 80 434 39 Kungsbacka (jointly referred to as “we”, “us”, “our”).

1. The Programme

1.1. Overview
The Programme enables you, by means of your HFC Card/App, to save 5% of the value of the transactions that you carry out at Participating Retailers’ stores of the Centre, and to spend this saved value (the “Loyalty Swedish Kronor” or “Loyalty Kronor”) at the Participating Retailers’ stores of the Centre (excluding any other stores or shopping centres), with a maximum of 25% of the value of your transaction (save as provided for below).
In addition, Participating Retailers’ stores in the Centre may propose benefits, discounts and special offers for the members of the Programme (the “Offers”).
Please be aware that certain Participating Retailers will only participate in the Programme in relation to Offers and not with respect to the Loyalty Kronor. Therefore, the saving and redemption of Loyalty Kronor will not be possible at the Centre stores of those Participating Retailers (this mainly applies to food and beverage operators, and pop-up stores).
1.2. Participating Retailers
A list of the Participating Retailers in the Centre is available at www.hedefashionoutlet.se, where it will be indicated whether a particular Participating Retailer participates in the Programme with respect to both Loyalty Kronor and Offers or only with respect to Offers.
The list of Participating Retailers may change from time to time. Not all retailers within the Centre will be part of the Programme.
1.3. Loyalty Kronor
(i) Saving Loyalty Kronor
For every purchase at a Participating Retailers’ store of the Centre, you will receive Loyalty Kronor worth 5% of the value (including VAT) of your purchase.
Loyalty Kroner cannot be collected on pharmaceuticals, alcohol, tobacco, lottery tickets or gift cards.
In no case will Loyalty Kronor be redeemable for money.
Loyalty Kronor shall be awarded to you upon presentation of your HFC Card/App. You may have Loyalty Kronor saved on your HFC Card/App in a Participating Retailer’s store of the Centre up to 14 days after a purchase, upon production of the original cash register receipt.
The Loyalty Kronor status provided by us shall be binding upon all parties involved.
If no activity takes place with your HFC Card/App during a 12 months’ period (savings or redemption of Loyalty Kronor), your HFC Card/App will be blocked and your Loyalty Kronor will be lost.
If you return goods for any reason, you will keep the Loyalty Kronor saved as a consequence of the relevant purchase transaction.
(ii) Redeeming Loyalty Kronor
Loyalty Kronor can be redeemed at the Participating Retailers’ stores of the Centre (excluding any other stores or shopping centres) with a maximum of 25% of the value of your purchase (including VAT). There is no limit to the number of times you can redeem with your HFC Card/App. You can only redeem Loyalty Kronor with your personal HFC Card/App.
Exceptionally, redemption may not be possible in case of special promotions or goods offered at lower prices than the outlet price. This shall be clearly communicated by the Participating Retailer.
Loyalty Kronor cannot be used on pharmaceuticals, alcohol, tobacco, lottery tickets or gift cards.
Loyalty Kronor’s cannot be converted into money or cashed otherwise. 
When you return (for any reason) goods which have been partially paid with Loyalty Kronor, no restitution of Loyalty Kronor will be made. Additionally, the returns policy of the Participating Retailer shall apply.
1.4. Offers
(i) Overview
The Participating Retailers’ stores of the Centre may propose Offers. The Offers you have access to may vary from time to time.
Offers will be subject to availability, and published Offers will be subject to terms and conditions imposed by the offering Participating Retailer (for example, closing dates and exclusions). It may also be necessary for our Participating Retailers to make changes to Offers which have already been published.
From time to time, it may be necessary to withdraw Offers from the Programme. It may not always be possible to give advance warning of this.
As far as possible, any relevant terms and conditions and/or details of limits on availability will be provided alongside the Offer. To avoid disappointment, you are invited to read the Offer carefully before trying to redeem an Offer.
Details of Offers available to you will be shown on the HFC App, and in emails which will be sent to you about the Programme.
(ii) Redemption of the Offers
To redeem an Offer, you shall present to the offering Participating Retailer the unique bar code on your HFC Card/App or the e mail where the Offer was communicated to you.
Exceptionally, redemption may not be possible in case of special promotions or goods offered at lower prices than the outlet price. This shall be clearly communicated by the Participating Retailer.
Loyalty Kroner cannot be used on pharmaceuticals, alcohol, tobacco, lottery tickets or gift cards.
You may be prevented from redeeming an Offer if (i) the Participating Retailer has reasons to suspect fraud or misconduct on your part or in the way the Offer is being used or (ii) the Offer was sent to you in error due to a technical fault.
