vida app Terms & Conditions
These are the terms and conditions applicable to your use of the Vida E Caffè Holdings Proprietary Limited (Registration No. 2005/020064/07) mobile application (“app”).
No person under the age of 18 should use the app without their legal guardian’s consent and supervision.
All the content, trademarks and data on the app, including text, graphics, icons, and designs belong to us or are licensed to us and may not be copied, downloaded or otherwise used, without permission.
Registration rewards are limited to the first 10 000 (ten thousand) downloads. Each reward is valid for 3 months and entitles the recipient to a free solo caffè (espresso, americano, cappuccino, latte, cortado or meia de leite). The reward is redeemable at any vida e caffè nationwide.
You must register a profile on the app before using the app. All information that you provide when registering a profile must be true, accurate and complete.
Providing false information and/or creating multiple profiles constitutes fraud and may lead to your profile being terminated with immediate effect, in which case you will lose all rewards and/or points which you have accumulated on the app.
It is your responsibility to ensure that no unauthorised persons access your app on your phone.
“Order Ahead” functionality
An order is successfully placed on the app only once payment has been made via the app and the app sends you a confirmation of order notification.
You must select the store from which you would like to collect your order.
No changes to orders placed on the app may be made following confirmation of the order.
You may only place an order for pick-up on the same day and it is your responsibility to collect the order within a reasonable time of placing the order. We are not responsible for any reduction in quality of the order if you collect the order late.
We will not refund you for orders which you do not collect.
We can discard your order if it has not been collected within the hour.
With each purchase using the app, you will receive 5% of the value of your total spend in loyalty points on the app.
Your loyalty points will reflect on the app as soon as the transaction is complete.
It is your responsibility to check that your loyalty points reflect on your profile as soon as the transaction is complete. If the loyalty points do not reflect, please notify us immediately via the app under the “Talk to Us” section.
Loyalty points will expire after 3 years.
Loyalty points may be used for partial or full payment of an order placed on the app, or in-store. Loyalty points cannot be exchanged for physical cash.
We may elect to offer personalised rewards from time to time, but these shall be at our sole discretion and are not guaranteed.
The minimum amount to send as a gift is R30.00 and the maximum amount you can send as a gift is R500.00.
Gift vouchers are valid for 3 years from date of purchase.
You earn loyalty points when purchasing gift vouchers, but not when redeeming gift vouchers.
Gift vouchers cannot be exchanged for physical cash.
Unless otherwise specified, promotional offers cannot be used in conjunction with any other offers.
Promotional offers are always subject to availability and may not always be available at every vida e caffè store.
When registering your profile on the app, we will need to collect certain information from you including your name, surname, date of birth (optional) and mobile number, as well as your credit or debit card details for the purposes of accepting card payments via the app.
We do not store any credit card data on our system, but we transmit encrypted information (tokens) to the payment service provider to facilitate payments. We do not share any unencrypted credit card information with third parties.
We only collect as much information as we need to provide the services on the app to you. We will not process or share your information for any other purpose without your permission. By agreeing to these Terms, you give us permission to send you SMS and/or email messages for OTP purposes and for purposes relating to orders, queries, marketing and promotions, or for any other lawful reason.
If your location settings are enabled on your mobile device, the app may, from time to time, use GPS (or similar) technology in order for you to utilize our “Find a Store” feature. However, we do not store or share this location data on our system. We may use app-trackers from time to time, but only for analytics purposes. Data in this regard is anonymous and we do not use it for any marketing purposes.
We have the right to monitor your use of the app for the purpose of operating and improving the app (including, without limitation, for fraud prevention, risk assessment, investigation and customer support purposes and to ensure your compliance with these Terms and compliance with applicable law).
All data provided to us is stored on our secure servers or those of our trusted service providers. We implement appropriate, generally accepted technical and organisational measures to protect personal data against unauthorised or unlawful processing, accidental loss, destruction or damage, including encryption where appropriate. Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the Internet is not completely secure. We cannot guarantee 100% security of your data transmitted to our servers.
If you have any questions about how we process information about you, feel free to contact us via the app under the “Talk to Us” section.
