Effective: September 12, 2016

Welcome to our family of sites! Please read these terms of use carefully!

THE SECTION BELOW ENTITLED “DISPUTE RESOLUTION” HAS A MANDATORY ARBITRATION PROVISION. IT AFFECTS YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS. PLEASE READ IT.

ABOUT MY MCC REWARDS

We own and operate this website (mymccrewards.com), the related mobile sites and mobile applications, and selected other domains (collectively, the “Site”). These terms of use (the “Agreement”) constitute a contract between you and us. What does that mean? It means that by accessing and/or using the Sites, you agree to all the terms and conditions of this Agreement. If you do not agree, do not use the Sites. As used in this Agreement, “My MCC Rewards,” “we,” “us,” and “our” shall mean My MCC Rewards Inc. and its subsidiaries and affiliates.

The restaurants available on our Sites operate independently and have entered into agreements with us to provide the food and delivery services available to you on the Sites. The restaurants are required to comply with federal, state and local laws, rules, regulations, and standards pertaining to the preparation, sale and marketing of food, including food preparation and safety and menu disclosure; My MCC Rewards is not responsible for the restaurants’ food preparation or safety and does not verify any restaurant’s compliance with applicable laws. In addition, My MCC Rewards does not guarantee the quality of what the restaurants sell, nor does it guarantee the services provided by the restaurant, including in those cases where the restaurant provides the delivery services. In addition, My MCC Rewards does not independently verify representations made by restaurants regarding their food, including without limitation any menu- or restaurant-level descriptors or disclosures.

USING MY MCC REWARDS

You may only use the Sites to order if you are the authorized holder of the credit card used for payment or an authorized user of a corporate account and if you are able to form a binding contract with us. In addition, if you are a minor in the jurisdiction in which you reside (generally under the age of 18), you must have the permission of, and be directly supervised by, your parent or legal guardian to use the Sites, and your parent or legal guardian must read and agree to this Agreement prior to your using the Sites. Notwithstanding the foregoing, you are prohibited from using the Sites if you are under the age of 13.

Use of the Site to order requires that you register and/or create an account (“Account”). To register and create an Account, you must create a username and password and provide certain personal information. In consideration of the use of the Sites’ services, you agree to: (a) provide true, accurate, current and complete information about yourself as prompted by the registration form, and (b) maintain and promptly update the personal information you provide to keep it true, accurate, current and complete. If you provide any information that is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, or My MCC Rewards has reasonable grounds to suspect that such information is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, My MCC Rewards has the right to block your current or future use of the Site (or any portion thereof).

You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality and security of your Account and password and for all activities or any other actions that occur under or are taken in connection with your password or Account. You agree to (a) immediately notify My MCC Rewards of any known or suspected unauthorized use(s) of your password or Account, or any known or suspected breach of security, including loss, theft, or unauthorized disclosure of your password or credit card information; and (b) ensure that you exit from your Account at the end of each session. My MCC Rewards will not be liable for any injury, loss or damage of any kind arising from or relating to your failure to comply with (a) and (b) or for any acts or omissions by you or someone else using your Account and/or password.

OUR ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES POLICY

Some jurisdictions permit the ordering and delivery of alcoholic beverages. In such jurisdictions, if you place an order that includes any alcoholic beverage, you acknowledge that you are at least 21 years of age. Upon delivery or pickup, as applicable, you shall present a government-issued identification card, evidencing your age. If you do not comply with these terms, you agree that the alcoholic beverage(s) will not be released to you, and you shall forfeit the cost of such beverages.

OUR CREDIT POLICY

Unless prohibited by law, in the event of any error in your order or the amount you were charged, you are entitled to a credit, provided it is brought to our attention within 60 days of your order date. If you do not raise the issue within 60 days of your order date, you waive the ability to receive a credit for any error.

CHANGES TO THE AGREEMENT

We may change this Agreement from time to time and without prior notice. If we make a change to this Agreement, it will be effective as soon as we post it, and the most current version of this Agreement will always be posted under the “Terms of Use” tab (“Updated Terms”).

GOVERNING LAW

You acknowledge and agree that your access to and/or use of the Site, the Materials and other content on the Site is subject to all applicable international, federal, state and local laws and regulations. The terms, conditions and policies contained in this Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Texas, without regard to its conflict of laws principles.

DISPUTE RESOLUTION

Arbitration
You agree that all claims, disputes or disagreements that may arise out of the interpretation or performance of this Agreement, or that in any way relate to your use of the Site, the Materials and/or other content on the Site, shall be submitted exclusively to binding arbitration, except that each party retains the right to bring an individual action in small claims court and the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party’s copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents or other intellectual property rights. Arbitration means that an arbitrator and not a judge or jury will decide the claim. Rights to prehearing exchange of information and appeals may also be limited in arbitration. You acknowledge and agree that you and My MCC Rewards are each waiving the right to a trial by jury. You further acknowledge and agree that you waive your right to participate as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class action or representative proceeding. Further, unless both you and My MCC Rewards otherwise agree in writing, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of any class or representative proceeding. If this specific paragraph is held unenforceable, then the entirety of this “Dispute Resolution” section will be deemed void. Except as provided in the preceding sentence, this “Dispute Resolution” section will survive any termination of these Terms of Use. You further acknowledge that any claim arising under this Agreement will be brought within one year of its accrual or it will be waived.

Arbitration Rules
The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (the “AAA Rules”) then in effect, except as modified by this “Dispute Resolution” section. (The AAA Rules are available at www.adr.org/aaa/ShowProperty?nodeId=/UCM/ADRSTAGE2021425& or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879). The Federal Arbitration Act will govern the interpretation and enforcement of this Section.

III. Arbitration Process

A party who desires to initiate arbitration must provide the other party with a written Demand for Arbitration as specified in the AAA Rules. (The AAA provides a form Demand for Arbitration athttps://www.adr.org/cs/idcplg?IdcService=GET_FILE&dDocName=ADRSTAGE2034889&RevisionSelectionMethod=LatestReleased and a separate affidavit for waiver of fees for California residents only at https://www.adr.org/cs/idcplg?IdcService=GET_FILE&dDocName=ADRSTG_004304&RevisionSelectionMethod=LatestReleased .) The arbitrator will be either a retired judge or an attorney licensed to practice law in the county in which you reside and will be selected by the parties from the AAA’s roster of consumer dispute arbitrators. If the parties are unable to agree upon an arbitrator within seven (7) days of delivery of the Demand for Arbitration, then the AAA will appoint the arbitrator in accordance with the AAA Rules.

Arbitration Location and Procedure
Unless you and My MCC Rewards otherwise agree, the arbitration will be conducted in the county where you reside. If your claim does not exceed $10,000, then the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents you and My MCC Rewards submit to the arbitrator, unless you request a hearing or the arbitrator determines that a hearing is necessary. If your claim exceeds $10,000, your right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA Rules. Subject to the AAA Rules, the arbitrator will have the discretion to direct a reasonable exchange of information by the parties, consistent with the expedited nature of the arbitration.

Arbitrator’s Decision
The arbitrator will render an award within the time frame specified in the AAA Rules. The arbitrator’s decision will include the essential findings and conclusions upon which the arbitrator based the award. Judgment on the arbitration award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. The arbitrator’s award damages must be consistent with the terms of the “Limitation of Liability” section above as to the types and the amounts of damages for which a party may be held liable. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the claimant and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by the claimant’s individual claim. If you prevail in arbitration, you will be entitled to an award of attorneys’ fees and expenses to the extent provided under applicable law. My MCC Rewards will not seek, and hereby waives all rights My MCC Rewards may have under applicable law to recover attorneys’ fees and expenses if My MCC Rewards prevails in arbitration.

Fees
Your responsibility to pay any AAA filing, administrative and arbitrator fees will be solely as set forth in the AAA Rules. However, if your claim for damages does not exceed $25,000, My MCC Rewards will pay all such fees unless the arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought in your Demand for Arbitration was frivolous or was brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)).

VII. Changes

My MCC Rewards reserves the right to change this “Dispute Resolution” section, but any such changes will not apply to disputes arising before the effective date of such amendment. Notwithstanding the provisions of the modification-related provisions above, if My MCC Rewards changes this “Dispute Resolution” section after the date you first accepted this Agreement (or accepted any subsequent changes to this Agreement), you agree that your continued use of the Sites after such change will be deemed acceptance of those changes. If you do not agree to such change, you may reject any such change by providing My MCC Rewards written notice of such rejection by mail or hand delivery to: My MCC Rewards, Attn: Dispute Resolutions, 10878 Westheimer Rd, Houston, Texas 77042, or by email from the email address associated with your account to: disputeresolution@mymccrewards.com, within 30 days of the date such change became effective, as indicated in the “Effective” date above. In order to be effective, the notice must include your full name and clearly indicate your intent to reject changes to this “Dispute Resolution” section. By rejecting changes, you are agreeing that you will arbitrate any Dispute between you and My MCC Rewards in accordance with the provisions of this “Dispute Resolution” section as of the date you first accepted this Agreement (or accepted any subsequent changes to this Agreement, as applicable).

WAIVER AND SEVERABILITY

Any waiver by My MCC Rewards of any provision of this Agreement must be in writing. If any portion of this Agreement is found to be void, invalid or otherwise unenforceable, then that portion shall be deemed to be superseded by a valid, enforceable provision that matches the intent of the original provision as closely as possible. The remainder of this Agreement shall continue to be enforceable and valid according to terms contained herein.
