2.8. Each Gift Card has a unique Code recorded on the reverse of each card.
2.9. The unique Code will normally be activated and ready for use on the website within 24 hours of purchase.
2.10. The Code can be revealed by removing the silver and black scratch panel on the back of your card using the edge of a coin. Do not press too hard. If the code is damaged or partial obscured, it will not be possible to replace. The unique Code can then be used to register your Gift Card, and then you can progress with your Order on the website.
2.11. The use of the unique Code is subject to these Terms, as may be varied by us from time to time. Purchase of a Gift Card and the registration, or attempted registration, of the Gift Card Code constitutes your acceptance of these terms.

Such action may include but is not limited to the cancellation or suspension of the Gift Card Code. Such action does not affect your legal rights.
2.17. At all times you agree to protect the Gift Card and Gift Card Code, treat it as cash and take all reasonable care to ensure that it is not lost, stolen or mislaid.
2.18. Once your Gift Card Code has been registered, and accepted by us, you are then able to proceed and place your Order.

There is no obligation on us to replace or exchange any products in such circumstances.
3.12. In the unlikely event that we are unable to fulfil your Order with your chosen product, we will advise you as soon as is reasonably possible.
3.13. Once you have placed your Order and received your chosen product or products, these Terms will cease to apply and the terms and conditions of the participating retailer will come into effect.

1.2 Lifestyle Vouchers can be redeemed against a broad range of retail and leisure brands. Each voucher has a unique reference which must be quoted when redeeming. Vouchers and the associated references must be kept safely and securely. We take no responsibility for any loss you may incur as a result of voucher theft, impersonation or identity fraud. We reserve the right to cancel vouchers or credit balances that we deem to have been obtained fraudulently.
2. Redeeming Lifestyle Vouchers

5.1 Motivates Inc. Ltd will not be liable for the conduct or actions of any participating retailer.
5.2 Lifestyle Vouchers are not covered by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme.
5.3 In the unlikely event of a participating retailer becoming insolvent or ceasing business, the funds on any retailer gift card or e-gift card/code you have received as a result of redeeming a Lifestyle Voucher may not be available to spend.
5.4 There is no obligation on Motivates Inc. Ltd to replace or exchange any previously issued and unspent retailer gift cards or e-gift cards/codes or return any credit to a Lifestyle Voucher account.
5.5 If there is cause for concern regarding solvency, there may be times when Motivates Inc. Ltd temporarily suspends the listing and availability of any participating retailer. This is to purely to protect our clients and customers from exchanging their Lifestyle Voucher for a retailer gift card or e-gift card that may, according to news reports and reliable, publicly obtainable trading information, potentially be null and void should any such retailer go into administration or become insolvent.
6.1 For fraud prevention reasons, debit and credit card use, as well as your company’s account credit use, may be queried and we may block further usage, either completely or only in certain territories. In such circumstances, you can contact our Customer Services Team.
6.2 We and our participating retailers reserve the right to, at any time suspend, restrict or cancel your gift card/e-gift card/gift card code or refuse to issue or replace a gift card/e-gift card/gift card code for reasons relating to the following:
a) we are concerned about the security of your account or gift card/e-gift card/gift card code(s) we have issued to you;
b) we suspect your account is being used in an unauthorised or fraudulent manner;
c) we need to do so to comply with the law.
If we do this, you may contact our Customer Services Team to obtain the reason for the suspension, restriction or cancellation and we will tell you as soon as we can or are permitted to do so.
6.3 We may also refuse to pay a transaction:
a) if we are concerned about security of your gift card/e-gift card/gift card code or we suspect your gift card/e-gift card/gift card code is being used in an unauthorised or fraudulent manner;
b) if we have reasonable grounds to believe that you are acting in breach of this agreement;
c) if we believe that a transaction is potentially suspicious or illegal (for example, if we believe that a transaction is being made fraudulently); or
d) because of errors, failures (whether mechanical or otherwise) or refusals by merchants, payment processors or payment schemes processing transactions.
6.4 If we refuse to authorise a transaction, you may contact the Customer Services Team and we will help investigate to advise why, if practicable, unless it would be unlawful for us to do so. While speaking with the Customer Services Team you may have the opportunity to correct any information we hold, and which may have caused us to refuse a transaction.

13.1 Some Lifestyle Voucher retailer redemption options are subject to restrictions such as specific validity periods, delivery formats or in store/online only redemption. This is out of our control at Motivates. However, we provide clear details for each retailer in each retailer’s Important Information section. We also provide a link to their full gift card terms and conditions (if they have an online link to their specific gift card terms).
13.2 Once you have confirmed your chosen retailer e-gift card, it is not possible to cancel if these restrictions cannot be met, so please check carefully.
