Please read these Terms carefully. You should save a copy of these terms for future reference.

The Promoter may additionally request you to confirm your acceptance of the Additional Terms by ticking a box on the Scheme Website.
1.3        The Scheme and Points are issued by, and remain the property of, the Promoter. The Promoter may at any time terminate or suspend the Scheme or amend the Terms and/or any Additional Terms. The Promoter will endeavour to provide reasonable notice of material amendments to the Terms and/or any Additional Terms. For the avoidance of doubt, any advice or actions of BELL staff or the staff of Agents that is contrary to these Terms and/or Additional Terms will not have the effect of changing or replacing these Terms.

1.5        Participants may choose to give Vouchers as a gift to their members of staff (“Participant's Employees”) but this gift is a matter between the Participants and their members of staff and does not impact on the operation of the Scheme. Where Participants give Vouchers as a gift to Participant’s Employees, the Participant will be liable for any action by the Participant’s Employees in relation to the Scheme as if the Participant had authorised and condoned this action. 
1.6        For the avoidance of doubt, the Scheme is not for personal and consumer use. The Scheme is only for businesses and traders, who are customers of Agents in the course of their trade.

        1.12.2       any breach or attempted breach of these Terms and/or Additional Terms;

1.14      The Promoter reserves the right to send information concerning the Scheme to the Participant by a number of channels which can include post, email or mobile phone.

1.15      Participants may choose to leave the Scheme at any time by emailing points@belladvance.co.uk. By leaving the Scheme, Participants forfeit the right to any Points or Vouchers already accrued or issued.
1.16      Participants who do not collect any Points for one year may be removed from the Scheme without any prior notification.  Should these Participants wish to re-join the Scheme, they will need to reapply to the Scheme as if they were a new Participant.

The Promoter may require further details from Participants, such as Agent name, Agent location and invoice number (“Relevant Details”). Each Proof of Purchase can be used one time only. 
2.3        The Promoter will endeavour to validate the Proof of Purchase within 10 days of submission, but reserves the right to reasonably extend this period of time at its discretion.

The Promoter will endeavour to contact the Participant where such allocation has taken place.  
2.4        Where validation of the Proof of Purchase has not been successfully completed, the Promoter will make reasonable endeavours to confirm the Proof of Purchase and/or any Relevant Details with the Participant, however, the burden of demonstrating that the Proof of Purchase has occurred rests with the Participant. The Promoter reserves the right not to allocate Points in respect of a Proof of Purchase which has not been successfully validated. 
2.5        Except as otherwise stated or advertised, one Point is awarded for every one Pound Sterling spent in a single purchase transaction from an Agent of identified BELL Products. For the avoidance of doubt, a Proof of Purchase may display purchase of products from other suppliers but these will not accrue any Points under the Scheme.
2.6        The Promoter reserves the right to allocate which BELL Products may qualify for generating Points under the Scheme in any given period of time (“Promotion”). BELL Products and ranges may be excluded at any time and without prior notice and such changes will be at the discretion of the Promoter or as directed by applicable law.

2.13      The Promoter is entitled to remove Points from a BELL Advance Account at any time if BELL Products are returned for any reason and/or a full or partial refund of the purchase price for such BELL Products is given. This also applies to the exchange of BELL Products, unless the exchange is for an alternative product of equal Points value.
2.14      The Promoter is entitled to remove or cancel Points from a BELL Advance Account if the Promoter determines that the Points were collected in breach of these Terms and/or Additional Terms, or were awarded in error. 
2.15      Proof of Purchase are deemed to be received at the time when the Promoter receives them. Records of the Promoter are final and conclusive as to the time of receipt.

3.7        Vouchers will be valid up until the expiry date, if any, specified by the Voucher Provider, beyond which the Voucher cannot be used or reissued. Vouchers that are lost or mislaid may be reissued with the original expiry date, provided they have not previously been redeemed. Additional terms and conditions may apply.
3.8        Vouchers can be used in accordance with the terms and conditions of the Voucher Provider in selected retail outlets in the United Kingdom. 
3.9        Vouchers have no cash value and are not for resale / publication. Subject to applicable terms and conditions of the Voucher Provider, Vouchers are valid in the United Kingdom only. Defaced / copied vouchers will not be accepted. 
3.10      The Promoter has the discretion to cancel vouchers at any time.
3.11      To the fullest extent permitted by law, the Promoter excludes any liability in relation to the issuing and redeeming of the Voucher by the Voucher Provider, any act or omission of the Voucher Provider, or any additional goods or services provided by the Voucher Provider, except where caused by the Promoter's negligence.
