Asterion Software Ltd. trading as Asterion Software Ltd. provides a system for businesses to offer reward and gift cards and related services to their customers and to manage such programs. Asterion Software Ltd. does not operate any reward programs and is not responsible for the terms and conditions or operational matters of any individual program.
Asterion Software Ltd. offers you a method to conduct management functions such as reviewing the balance.
You must create an account and register your card before you can redeem value held on the card.
You may change your details at any time by logging into your account. However you agree to provide accurate information. We cannot be responsible for any loss of data caused by providing inaccurate information.
You can cancel your account at anytime but this may result in loss of data and use of any cards, including the ability to receive or redeem points on them. We will warn you of this before you cancel so that you will have the opportunity to use outstanding points or other value first.
Reward points have no cash value unless expressly stated to have by the issuing company. In any case Asterion Software is not liable for any cash or other value which the issuing company may place on these.
Asterion Software Ltd. do not at any time have control of cash or other value placed on Reward Cards, Gift Cards, in Saving Clubs or other programs operated using our platform.

Points can only be redeemed by the issuing company or another company in agreement with them, and if expressly stated by the issuing company.

1. Asterion Software will take reasonable precautions to ensure that all the personal information that you have submitted via the Website remains confidential, as required by the Data Protection Act 1988, and it has strict security procedures regarding the storage and disclosure of personal information.
3. Collection of Personal Information: Asterion Software will collect personal information from you in a number of circumstances, including when you register your personal details, and when you use the services provided on the Website. When you register your personal details to create an account, Asterion Software will ask for your name, email address, gender and date of birth as a minimum requirement.
4. Use of personal Information: Asterion Software will not sell, exchange, or divulge your personal information (including your email address) to any third party without your consent, unless Asterion Software believes that release of this information is appropriate in order to comply with regulatory or legal requirements, to enforce the Terms and Conditions or to protect its rights, property, safety, customers or third parties.
(a) Any agreement you make to receive offers and information from third parties or Asterion Software may be immediately rescinded by you upon selecting the relevant box within your account pages.
