II. PROGRAM BENEFITS
Earning Points. Upon activating your account, you may begin earning points by providing your Member ID at the time of (i) purchasing movie tickets, either at the Theater or online at www.sundancecinemas.com, or (ii) when purchasing food or drinks at the Theater (collectively, “Eligible Purchases”), subject to any limitation that we may impose, at our sole discretion, on opportunities to earn points. You must present your Member ID before the conclusion of the transaction in order for points to be earned for that transaction. . Points are accrued according to the Points Accrual and Redemption Policy [https://www.sundancecinemas.com/hou-loy-accrual-rewards-policy.html] currently in effect at the time of purchase.
Points will be credited to your account within approximately twenty-four (24) hours after completing an Eligible Purchase. You may check your point balance at any time online by accessing your account or by asking for your account balance at the Theater. We will not be responsible for, or liable to, any Member, person or entity, in any way for any losses, costs or expenses incurred by a delay in crediting points to a Member's account. Points accrued or earned by a Member in any transaction may only be redeemed in a separate, subsequent transaction.
Points (i) may not be transferred, purchased, sold, bartered or brokered, (ii) have no cash value and (iii) are not redeemable for cash unless required by applicable law. Unredeemed points do not constitute property of the Member, nor are unredeemed points transferable by the Member upon death, as part of a domestic relations matter or otherwise. Points may be taxable to the Member where required by law. In the event of technical failures or difficulties, you may not be able to earn points, and you are not entitled to any cash compensation as a result of such technical failures or difficulties.
Points will expire: (i) immediately, if you do not earn or redeem any points within the last eighteen(18) consecutive months, or (ii) after ninety (90) days from termination of the Program by us.
You may redeem your points for Program Rewards, which are described in more detail in our Points Accrual and Redemption Policy [https://www.sundancecinemas.com/hou-loy-accrual-rewards-policy.html]. To redeem points, you must maintain an active and up-to-date membership in the Program, and present a valid Member ID at the time of redemption. Currently, you may only redeem points for Program Rewards in-person at the Theater Or Online.. [BH15] Note that certain items at the Theater, such as alcoholic beverages, are not Program Rewards available using points. You must have enough points accumulated in your account to redeem a Program Reward. You may not use a combination of points and cash or credit to acquire Program Rewards, nor can you combine points from different Member accounts to acquire Program Rewards. In the event of technical failures or difficulties, Program Rewards may not be available at the Theater, and you are not entitled to any cash compensation as a result of such technical failures or difficulties.
Points will be subtracted from your account immediately after redeeming the Program Reward. Subject to the sole and absolute discretion of Sundance Cinemas, points may be refunded to your account if the Program Reward that you have requested is unavailable, cannot be delivered, or is defective.
Points may be redeemed only for Program Rewards offered by Sundance Cinemas or our authorized partners and sponsors. Program Rewards are subject to availability, and we reserve the right to limit the redemption of specific Program Rewards and limit the number of Program Rewards available at any particular point-spending level.
