The Bride Rewards Program (“Bride Rewards Program“) is operated by Canada’s Bridal Show Ltd. (doing business as Canada’s Bridal Show), a corporation incorporated under the laws of Ontario, having an office at 136 Winges Rd. Unit 9, Woodbridge, ON  L4L 6C4, tel: +1 (905) 264-7000, fax: +1 (905) 264-7300, e-mail: info@canadasbridalshow.com (“Canada’s Bridal Show“, “us“, “our“, or “we“).  When you enroll in the Bride Rewards Program as a Member, we license you to collect Bride Rewards Points (“Points”) by making purchases with participating exhibitors, merchants and organizations (collectively, “Exhibitors”) and to redeem the Points in your Member Account for products and services purchased from Exhibitors or such other special offers and other rewards (“Rewards“) provided by Exhibitors or Canada’s Bridal Show, as Canada’s Bridal Show may choose to include in the Bride Rewards Program in its discretion from time to time.  The Bride Rewards Program may be administered in whole or in part by third party services providers (“Suppliers”).  Exhibitors and Suppliers are not, and shall not be deemed or presumed to be, representatives of Canada’s Bridal Show. Exhibitors and Suppliers have no authority to act on behalf of Canada’s Bridal Show or to assume or create any obligation or make any commitment on behalf of Canada’s Bridal Show.

1. Enrollment in the Bride Rewards Program

(a)    To enroll in the Bride Rewards Program, you must be an individual who is a resident of Canada and have reached the age of majority in the province or territory in which you reside.  It is your responsibility to ensure, and you represent and warrant, that you are legally eligible to enter into these Terms and Conditions under any laws applicable to you in your jurisdiction of residence or otherwise.  If you participate in the Bride Rewards Program, you represent and warrant that you have the capacity to be bound by these Terms and Conditions.

(b)    Currently the Bride Rewards Program is only offered in the Province of Ontario and is only open to residents of Ontario and Ontario based Exhibitors.

(c)    To enroll in the Bride Rewards Program, you must enroll individually, only once, in your full legal name, and you must have both a valid mailing address in Canada and a valid e-mail address.  If we accept your application for enrollment, we will enroll you in the Bride Rewards Program as a collector of Points (a “Member”), establish an account (“Member Account”) in your name and issue you a Bride Rewards membership card (“Bride Rewards Card“).

(d)    To begin collecting Points and in order to redeem Points for Rewards you must register and validate your Bride Rewards Card at http://www.briderewards.ca/index.php/register.  You acknowledge and agree that Points collected on your Bride Rewards Card prior to registering the card may not be valid and may not be accepted for redemption or to collect Rewards.

(e)    You agree to provide true, accurate, current and complete information about yourself when registering with the Bride Rewards Program and in response to all other requirements that you provide any information to Canada’s Bridal Show or an Exhibitor, and you may not misrepresent your Member Account information.  You will promptly advise us of any change to your mailing or e-mail address or any change of your name.  Canada’s Bridal Show shall not be liable for misdirected communications not caused by us, whether by mail or e-mail or otherwise, or any consequences thereof.

2. Account Management

(a)    Points are personal and cannot be assigned, traded or exchanged without the consent of Canada’s Bridal Show except as required by applicable law.  Proper legal documentation will be required from all Members in order to effect a change of name.  In the event of the death of a Member, Canada’s Bridal Show will only transfer Points of that Member upon the presentation of, and in accordance with the terms of, a valid grant of probate or letters of administration by a duly authorized personal representative of the deceased Member.  A transfer fee equal to ten percent (10%) of the aggregate amount of the Points being transferred shall apply to all permitted transfers of Points on death of a Member, and such transfer fee Points shall be deducted from the Member Account of the deceased Member concurrently with the completion of the applicable transfer.

(b)    You are responsible for all applicable taxes (including, without limitation, value-added, sales, use, consumption, multi-staged, personal property, customs, excise, stamp, transfer, or similar taxes, duties, or charges) payable as a result of your participation in the Bride Rewards Program, including in connection with collecting and redeeming Points and obtaining Rewards.  In most cases, such taxes will be included in the Points value of the Reward being redeemed, and will not require a separate payment by you. 

(c)    The Bride Rewards Program entitles you to collect Points only from Exhibitors in Ontario.

(d)    You must identify yourself as a Member and present your Bride Rewards Card to be swiped when dealing with Exhibitors. Canada’s Bridal Show will issue Points to your Member Account only when you earn them from dealing with authorized Exhibitors in good standing with us, and only after your Bride Rewards Card has been validly processed at the point of sale with the Exhibitor. We are not responsible if an Exhibitor or Supplier delays or fails to inform us or for any other delay in issuing Points to your Member Account. Some Exhibitor locations may not participate in the Bride Rewards Program. A list of Exhibitors may be found at www.BrideRewards.ca.

(e)    We may refuse to issue or credit Points to your Member Account, or if already recorded, we may cancel them, if we cannot confirm that they were properly issued or obtained. Neither we nor any Exhibitor is responsible for any offer of Points which is no longer in effect. Any dispute must be settled between you and the Exhibitor.

(f)     If you believe that the number of Points in your Account is in error, you must tell us within 30 days of the date of the transaction for which the Points should have been issued or else the number of Points in your Member Account will be deemed to be correct, except for excess Points improperly recorded in it.  We may require you to submit documentation to support your claim.

(g)    A personal password (“Password”) will be required in order to access your Member Account and to redeem Points on www.briderewards.ca. You are responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your Password, for all activities that occur using your Password and for notifying us of any unauthorized use of your Password. Anyone who knows your Member Account number and Password will have full access to your Member Account, and may change the address associated with your Account and redeem Points recorded in your Member Account. Notify us immediately if your Bride Rewards Card is lost or stolen. We are not responsible or liable in any way for any loss arising from your failure to comply with these provisions.

(h)    In the event that you wish to discontinue your enrollment in the Bride Rewards Program, you must notify Canada’s Bridal Show in writing and return your Bride Rewards Card to us forthwith at our main office location, which is currently 136 Winges Rd. Unit 9, Woodbridge, ON  L4L 6C4. 

3. Earning Points

(b)    Points are awarded at a rate of one (1) point for each $1 spent at a participating Exhibitor.

(c)    Points round up at each $0.50 spent. For example, at a participating Exhibitor, you will receive 10 points if they spend $10.40, and 11 points if you spend $10.50.

(d)    In order to earn Points, you must spend a minimum of $1.00 with a Exhibitor.  In addition, a maximum of $10,000 per transaction is eligible for Points.

(e)    Canada’s Bridal Show will credit to you, in Points, an additional one percent (1%) of the Points earned by you for each qualifying purchase of goods and services from an Exhibitor.

4. Redemption of Points

(b)    The number of Points recorded in your Member Account and the number of Points required to obtain any particular Reward are subject to verification by Canada’s Bridal Show. Unless otherwise agreed by the applicable Exhibitor and subject to applicable law, once Points have been redeemed no exchanges, returns or refunds whatsoever are permitted.

(c)    In order to redeem any Points, you must redeem a minimum of 2,500 Points.  In addition, you are only able to redeem a maximum of 100,000 points per redemption transaction.

(d)    All Rewards are offered subject to availability and restrictions imposed by Exhibitors and/or Suppliers.  As Rewards are provided by Suppliers, we assume no responsibility for any loss, damage, defect, injury, death or expense relating to any act or omission of a Exhibitor, or any Reward, or for your Rewards not turning out as you expected for whatever reason not related to the consequence of Canada’s Bridal Show’s own act or the acts of its representatives.

(e)    All references to money in these Terms and Conditions are in Canadian dollars, unless otherwise indicated.

(f)     You are responsible for all taxes (including, without limitation, value-added, sales, use, consumption, multi-staged, personal property, customs, excise, stamp, transfer, or similar taxes, duties, or charges) applicable to any amounts payable to us. We will determine the applicable taxes on the basis of the province in which you reside, as shown in our records at time of payment.

5. Limitation of Liability

Neither we, our affiliates nor any of our or their respective officers or directors have any responsibility or liability for any expense, loss, cost, injury, damage, delay, event or exhibition cancellation, accident or any other matter or thing whatsoever (collectively, “Costs“), however suffered or caused (including compensatory, incidental, indirect, special, punitive, consequential or exemplary damages or damages for loss of income or profits), directly or indirectly arising out of or related to:

(i)     the Bride Rewards Program or your participation in the Bride Rewards Program;

This applies even if we or our representatives are advised of the possibility of such Costs.  You must deal directly with the applicable Exhibitor or Supplier in the event of any dispute relating to the purchase, redemption for or use of any goods or services of Exhibitors or Suppliers.

Without limiting the foregoing, any liability we may have to you or anyone else who obtains the benefit of any Points you redeem, under any circumstances, for any negligence, breach of contract or otherwise, is limited to crediting your Account with the number of Points you redeemed in connection with those circumstances, if any.  Points have no monetary value whatsoever and cannot under any circumstances form the basis of a monetary claim against Canada’s Bridal Show.
