The Bicester Collection™ Membership terms and conditions

Effective 1 March 2023

Overview
  1. These terms and conditions (“Terms”), govern your membership of The Bicester Collection membership programme (“Membership Programme”) including any scheme, programme, specific offer or local variant thereof. In these terms we refer to members of the Membership Programme as “Members”, and the villages of The Bicester Collection as “Villages”.



  1. The promoter of the Membership Programme is Value Retail PLC of 50 Pingle Drive, Bicester OX26 6WD (“we” or “us”).

Membership
  1. To be a Member you must:
  • be eighteen (18) years of age or older;
  • have a valid email address; and
  • have the ability to receive electronic notifications from the Membership Programme through the form of electronic communication we use from time to time (for example, an email address).

  1. You can register to be a Member online or on the relevant Village’s app. The Village you register with is your “Primary Village”.

  2. If your application for Membership is accepted, we will notify you that your account is activated by email or an electronic method (for example, if you applied via an Instant Messaging services, we may reply that way).

Earning 'Stars'
  1. The standard number of stars you will be awarded are 1 (one) star for every £1/€1 you spend in participating boutiques in Value Retail Villages across The Bicester Collection in [UK and] Europe (a “Star”). We reserve the right to vary this rate at any time. If we decide to vary this rate, then we will seek to let you know in reasonable time by post and/or by email at the address you have given to us.

  2. To be awarded Stars you must present and scan your membership QR code at the time of purchase in the participating boutique (this includes transactions made via virtual shopping).

  3. If you forget to scan your membership QR code at the time of your purchase in the participating boutique, the relevant boutique will be unable to scan your code retrospectively.

  4. You shall only scan your membership QR code once per transaction and only one scan of one membership is permitted to be linked to any transaction.

  5. Purchases made in non-participating boutiques, or not completed correctly, will not be eligible for any Stars.

  6. Purchases of gift cards do not qualify for Stars.

  7. From time to time, we may choose to run special promotions and award additional Stars. For example, we may increase the number of Stars that you receive for every £1/€1 you spend, or award bonus Stars when you purchase a particular product. We may set a limit on how many promotional Stars can be awarded to any one membership account. Member promotions cannot be cumulated with other non-member promotions, unless indicated otherwise.

Treats and Rewards
  1. The Membership Programme may offer Members various benefits from time to time such as services, food and beverage vouchers, gifts from participating boutiques, experiences, competitions, prize draws and special offers (“Treats and Rewards”).

  2. Each Village may offer different Treats and Rewards. Your Treats and Rewards will be assigned to you from your Primary Village.

  3. You will only be eligible for, and be able to redeem, the Treats and Rewards offered in your Primary Village.

  4. There are the following category of Treats and Rewards:

  • Treats: means benefits related your membership level.
  • Monthly Rewards: means rewards available for a set period which are triggered by spend, scan or membership level or spend and/or membership level.
  • Hidden Rewards: means rewards that are available for the Membership Year which are unlocked by scan or spend.

All Stars, Treats and Rewards are subject to an expiry date, beyond which they cannot be used or reissued. Treats and Rewards that are lost or mislaid will not be reissued. Treats and Rewards are only redeemable at the location stated.

  1. Treats and Rewards will be subject to their own additional terms and conditions and third-party terms and conditions may apply.

  2. Stars, Treats and Rewards are your responsibility, as are any security details relating to your Membership. We will not be held responsible for any loss arising from you failing to ensure their safe keeping.

  3. Memberships, Stars, Treats and Rewards shall not (i) be transferred (unless the specific Reward terms and conditions state otherwise), bought, sold, assigned, loaned or in any way traded or (ii) claimed in respect of any third party spend or activity. For example, you shall not use your Membership to claim spend, Stars or Treats and Rewards which someone else did not claim for any reason. Any purported dealings of the types prohibited by this paragraph shall be invalid and shall be equivalent to a breach of the AUP in relation to our ability to investigate and act (see below).

  4. Many benefits of Membership are offered by participating boutiques themselves. The Membership Programme does not (other than as required by law) (i) take any responsibility for the offers provided by the participating boutiques; and/or (ii) provide any warranties regarding the goods (including without limitation the quality thereof) that the Member may obtain through the offer at the relevant participating boutique.

Membership Levels
  1. Membership Programme Levels are defined as follows:
  • Level 1: for Members with 0 - 999 Stars.
  • Level 2: for Members with 1000 - 2,999 Stars.
  • Level 3: for Members with 3000+ Stars.

  1. All new Members enter the Membership Programme at Level 1. Once you have collected enough Stars, you will move up to Level 2, and then to Level 3. Each Level of the programme attracts different Rewards and Treats. The Level you qualify for from collecting Stars is your “Collected Level”.

  2. The membership year runs from 1 March – 28/29 February of each year (the “Membership Year”). This means that on 1st March each year, your Stars will be reset to zero and any Treats and Rewards offered relating to Stars awarded will be lost if not already redeemed by the end of the Membership Year in which they were earned (unless the specific Reward terms and conditions state otherwise).

  3. In your second Membership Year you will start at the Collected Level at which you finished your first Membership Year. For each subsequent Membership Year your Level will be set at either the Collected Level calculated for that previous Membership Year, or one level below your actual Level from that previous Membership Year, whichever is greater. In either case, the rules under the “General” heading below may lead to further changes.

For example, if you finish your first Membership Year in Level 3, your Stars are reset to zero, but you remain in Level 3 for your second Membership Year. If you do not earn any Stars in your second Membership Year, you will be moved to Level 2 in your third Membership Year, and again, if no Stars are awarded in year three, you will move to Level 1 in your fourth Membership Year. You can check the number of Stars you have earned in your Membership account on our website or in the mobile application for your Primary Village.

  1. Where you obtain a refund of spend in the Village, the Stars and Treats and Rewards may be reversed proportionately.

General
  1. An individual is only entitled to have one active Membership and only one Membership is permitted per email address.

  2. The Terms may be amended at any time by us, and we will seek to give reasonable notice of any changes by email before such changes come into effect. The current version will also be displayed here. If you do not agree with any changes that we make to the Terms, you have the right to terminate your Membership without any cost or penalty. If you decide to do so, please let us know as soon as possible by emailing the contact email address relevant to your Primary Village as set out in the table below.

  3. By continuing to use your Membership, you are deemed to have accepted the latest version of the Terms. If we propose a change to the Terms that might have a significant impact on you or will affect your legal rights, we will ask for your consent to the change. If you do not give your consent to a change where we have asked for it (or if you contact us to say you do not agree to a change we have notified to you) then we will terminate your Membership, after giving you a fair chance to redeem any benefits you have accrued up to that time.

  4. You may choose to leave the Membership Programme at any time by contacting your Primary Village at the relevant email address as set out in the table below.

  5. You must notify us of any changes to your personal or Membership details. These changes can be made online in your membership account. We will not be responsible for any loss of Stars, Treats or Rewards resulting from your details being out of date or inaccurate where you have not informed us of any change in details.

  6. The Membership Programme is only for personal use by Members. What this means is explained in more detail in our Acceptable Use Policy (“AUP”) which can be seen here.

  7. We will publish and maintain the AUP. The AUP may contain rules about how Memberships, Stars, Treats and Rewards may be claimed, used, redeemed or managed. It is a condition of the Membership programme that you comply with the AUP.

  8. We reserve the right to investigate whether a Membership application, existing Membership, or claiming or earning of any Star, Treat, Level and Reward or other feature of the Membership scheme complies with the AUP.

  9. We may, at our discretion block, reject, suspend, merge, cancel, delete or modify Memberships, Stars, Levels, or Treats and Rewards on a temporary or permanent basis where we reasonably believe that there is a non-compliance with these Terms or the AUP. “Block” means put in place measures to prevent a Membership application. “Reject” means rejecting, possibly by automated means, Membership applications which we do not wish to accept possibly because they have features that we believe indicate a tendency to breach the Terms or AUP. “Suspend” means to wholly or partly restrict a Membership to some degree, including blocking acquiring, spending or using Stars, Levels or Treats and Rewards. “Merge” means to transfer Stars and/or Treats and Rewards from one account to another.

  10. We may, at any time and at our discretion, terminate the Membership Programme.

  11. The Membership Privacy Notice relevant to your Primary Village is available in the table below and it gives further information about how your personal data is collected and processed as part of the Membership Programme.

  12. If any of these Terms & Conditions are declared invalid, unlawful or unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed to be deleted from these Terms & Conditions and the remaining provisions shall remain in full force and effect.

  13. These Terms are governed by the law and subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of the Primary Village to which they relate as set out in the table below:
