Chef’s Choice Vapes Canada Rewards Loyalty Program: Terms and Conditions of Participation
PLEASE READ THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF PARTICIPATION IN THE CHEF’S CHOICE VAPES REWARDS LOYALTY PROGRAM CAREFULLY. BY PARTICIPATING IN THIS PROGRAM, YOU AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THE TERMS DESCRIBED HEREIN AND ALL TERMS INCORPORATED BY REFERENCE. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO ALL OF THESE TERMS, DO NOT PARTICIPATE IN THIS PROGRAM.
- Membership Eligibility and Overview
1.1. The Chef’s Choice Vapes Rewards Loyalty Program (“Program”) is offered at the sole discretion of Chef’s Choice Vapes Canada (“Chef’s Choice Vapes,” “we,” “our” or “us”). The Program is available to individuals for their personal use only and is limited to one account per individual. The reward units earned are called Chits (“points”). Corporations, associations or other groups may not participate in the Program. Individuals who are legal residents of Canada and at least the age of majority in their jurisdiction of residence and who provide and maintain a valid email address are eligible to become members. No purchase is necessary to join the Program. The Program may not be used for any business or commercial purpose and we may refuse to create an account for any reason. Employees of Chef’s Choice Vapes and individuals employed by our business partners or vendors are eligible for membership for personal use only but may be excluded from certain benefits of the Program.
2. Program Enrollment
2.1 Eligible individuals may only enroll in the Program by visiting www.ccvapes.ca (collectively, the “Site”) and registering an account.
2.2. You are required to provide your email address in order to enroll in the Program. You will also need to create an account by providing your name and creating a password in order to access certain Program benefits and rewards. You may also have the opportunity to provide us with your mailing address, birth date and mobile phone number, but this information is optional. You are solely responsible for maintaining the accuracy of your account information and for updating it as required. You may update your personal information on the Site.
2.3. Only one Program account may be associated with a single member and a single email address. In the event of a dispute over ownership of the Program membership account, the member will be deemed to be the authorized account holder of the email address submitted at the time of enrollment. For purposes of these Program Terms, the “authorized account holder” is the natural person who is assigned to the submitted email address by an internet provider, online service provider, or other organization (e.g., business, educational institution, etc.) that is responsible for assigning email addresses for the domain associated with the submitted email address.
3. How the Program Works
3.1. The Program is a way in which we reward and thank our loyal customers for purchasing our products and for participating in certain brand experiences on the Site. You are able to earn points by making eligible purchases or taking certain other Program actions. Once you reach a certain loyalty tier and/or earn a certain number of points, you may be eligible for certain benefits and rewards applicable to that tier and/or number of points, which benefits may change from time to time and may be offered on a limited basis. Eligible purchases and other opportunities to earn points will be posted on the Site or may be published through other media (e.g., in-store, in marketing communications, social media, etc.).
3.2. For your purchase to qualify for the Program, you must be enrolled in the Program and (a) be signed into your online account at the time of purchase on the Site; or (b) provide your Program member identification (that is, the email address you registered under the Program) in store.
3.2.1. Members receive 2 points for every 1 Canadian Dollar (CAD $1) spent on eligible purchases at the Site or in store. Eligible purchases include regular priced merchandise and exclude Gift Cards, applicable taxes, discounts, shipping and delivery charges, and/or other excluded charges specified by us from time-to-time. All points earned from purchases on the Site are pending until your order ships, at which point they are fully matured and capable of redemption.
3.2.2. In addition to these purchases, you may also earn points for the following actions. To earn points, you must be a Program member and be logged into your Program account before completing the actions below. The number of points, if any, awarded for each action is determined by Chef’s Choice Vapes in its sole but reasonable discretion and in all cases subject to a maximum number of points earned for each action per year.
Enrolling in the Program

4.1. To redeem offers and rewards, you must have accumulated the minimum number of points as established by us for a particular benefit. Product rewards and samples are shipped with product purchases on the Site only. Points may never be exchanged for cash. You must be logged in to your Program account to use your benefits. You will find your eligible offers and rewards (with offer codes if applicable) listed in your personal account. Qualifying members will receive email invitations when event rewards are available if they have not opted-out of receiving Program emails.

Your account information (including security details) are confidential and should not be shared with any other person.
4.4. Rewards, benefits and/or points earned through the Program have no cash value, are non-transferable, and you have no property rights in or to rewards or other Program benefits.

4.7. We are not responsible for rewards, benefits and/or points lost or redeemed due to fraudulent activity by you or any third party.
4.8. We reserve the right to change Program benefits, how you earn points and how we evaluate and reward your eligible purchases and/or other Program activity.
