 BOOM25 – GENERAL TERMS OF USE

  1. Who we are

We are "BOOM25", a trading name of BOOM25 (UK) Limited ("we", "our", "us" or "BOOM25"). We are registered in England and Wales. Our company registration number is 10539194 and our registered office is at Suite 1, 3rd Floor, 11-12 St. James's Square, London SW1Y 4LB.

We operate a shopping platform (the "Boom25 Service") which gives you ("you", "your" or "Buyer") the chance to win money back on purchases made through the BOOM25 website currently located at https://boom25.com/ (the "Boom25 Website"). The Boom25 Service is described in more detail below and also here in our FAQs.

These Terms of Use

Please read carefully through these general terms of use (the "Terms of Use") which govern all use of the Boom25 Website and the Boom25 Service and create a legally binding agreement between you and BOOM25 when you access or use the Boom25 Website and the Boom25 Service. In order to use the Boom25 Service, you must first agree to these Terms of Use by clicking "Join Now" in the registration page. You will also be deemed to have accepted these Terms of Use by your access to and use of the Boom25 Website (even if you do not sign up for an Account). You may not access or use the Boom25 Website or the Boom25 Service if you do not accept or agree to these Terms of Use.

Changes to these Terms of Use

We reserve the right to change, modify or replace all or part of these Terms of Use from time to time in order to ensure that we remain compliant with applicable laws and regulations and/or to reflect any changes or improvements we may make to the Boom25 Website, the Boom25 Service or our business practices. However, if we make any material changes to these Terms of Use, in addition to posting the revised Terms of Use on the Boom25 Website, we will give you advance notice directly via the email address you supplied to us when you set up your Account. If any changes to these Terms of Use are unacceptable to you, you will be entitled to terminate your use of the Boom25 Service at any time by ceasing all access to and use of the Boom25 Website and the Boom25 Service. Your continued use of the Boom25 Website and the Boom25 Service following any changes to these Terms of Use (after, in the case of material changes, they have been notified to you or otherwise after they come into effect) will constitute your agreement to and acceptance of those changes.

Other important terms

The Terms of Use include and incorporate any terms and conditions and or rules with regards to specific promotions, bonuses and/or special offers which may apply from time to time.

Additionally, each Supplier will have its own terms and conditions applicable to: (i) the access to and use of its own website and related services; and (ii) the sale and purchase of its goods and/or services, which will apply in addition to these Terms of Use for the Purchase of any goods and/or services from the Supplier via the Boom25 Service. You should read the Supplier's terms and conditions in advance of purchasing any goods and/or services from the Supplier via the Boom25 Service. We have no influence over, or knowledge of, these Supplier terms and conditions and accept not liability in respect of such terms and conditions.

What is the Boom25 Service and how does it work?

The Boom25 Service may only be used by people who are at least 18 years of age.

If you are 18 years of age or older and you want to start using the Boom25 Service, you will need to go to the Boom25 Website and create an account by providing your name, email address and a password of your choice ("Account").

Once you have set up your Account, you may choose the supplier(s) or seller(s) that offer the product(s) or service(s) you are looking for (each a "Supplier"). By clicking on the banner or link shown for a Supplier of your choice, you will be directed to that Supplier’s website where you can browse and make a purchase (a "Purchase") directly from the Supplier.

Each Supplier is assigned by us to a specific group ("Group") which forms a "pool" where all Completed Purchases (defined below) made by all Buyers from the Suppliers included in that Group are counted together. Each Group has a different number that we assign to it (the "Magic Number") which indicates how many Completed Purchases in that Group (from all Buyers in the Group) are counted to get to a Winning Purchase (as defined below). For example, if the Magic Number in the Group which includes the Supplier you choose is 25, then every 25th Completed Purchase in that Group (for the avoidance of doubt, from all Completed Purchases in that Group, not only from your Completed Purchases) is a "Winning Purchase". If the Magic Number in the relevant Group is 20, then every 20th Completed Purchase will be a Winning Purchase.

The Buyer of a Winning Purchase will receive 100% (or less than 100% in the types of purchases found here) of the amount of their Purchase back from us (less VAT, currency conversion fees (if applicable), PayPal charges (if any were paid on such Purchase) and delivery charges (if applicable)) directly to his or her PayPal account. PayPal withdrawal fees may apply.

When directed to the website of the Supplier you choose, you will be able to see which Magic Number applies to the Group to which that Supplier belongs. At any time before you make a Purchase, at our reasonable discretion, we may move any Supplier from one Group to another Group or take any other action, provided that such move or action improves (and never adversely affects) your personal chances of winning. For example, we may move your specific Purchase to a Group with a lower Magic Number, which means you will have a higher chance of making a Winning Purchase.

A Purchase will be considered as having been "Completed" only upon: (1) notification to us by the Supplier about the Purchase, in the manner required under our agreement with the Supplier; (2) delivery or provision to you in full of the goods or services that you Purchased from such Supplier; and (3) payment by the Supplier to us of the applicable commission due to us on the Purchase under our agreement with the Supplier. Although we will use reasonable endeavours to ensure that Suppliers perform the following steps, BOOM25 cannot and will not be held responsible if a Supplier fails to perform any of the foregoing steps for any reason and, in such circumstances, BOOM25 will not be liable to you for any non-Completion of a Purchase as a result of any failure by the Supplier to perform any of the foregoing steps.

Once you log in to your Account you will have access to your personalised dashboard (the "Dashboard") where you can keep track of all the Purchases you have made using the Boom25 Service, your Winning Purchases and any Payment Bonuses or Referral Bonuses (each as defined below, and together "Bonuses") you may have won.

We may from time to time, at our discretion, treat additional Purchases as Winning Purchases, whether Completed or not, and refund the full amount of such additional Purchases to the applicable Buyers (less VAT, currency conversion fees (if applicable), PayPal charges (if any were paid on such Purchases), and delivery charges (if applicable)). Such discretionary refunds by us, if any, will in any event not adversely affect the count of Winning Purchases out of Completed Purchases according to the Magic Number of the relevant Group, and will always be in addition to such count.

Minimum and maximum Purchase amounts

Purchases exceeding £20,000 will not be eligible to win money back and all Purchases must be above 50p (not including VAT and delivery charges). This does not include special offer orders or referral orders which have their own minimum order amounts. 

Approvals by Suppliers

Some Purchases may take up to 130 days to be approved by the Suppliers. An approval by the Supplier is a necessary condition for a purchase to be considered as Completed and to allow the purchase to be considered a qualifying Purchase and participate in the count towards a Winning Purchase. If a purchase is not approved by the Supplier, it will not be considered a qualifying Purchase and will not participate in the count towards a Winning Purchase.  All approvals and declines are at the sole discretion of the Supplier and BOOM25 cannot influence or interfere with such final decisions of the Supplier. A Supplier might decline a purchase because the product was returned or exchanged or for any other reason at the Supplier's discretion. The Suppliers often do not give Boom 25 their reasons for declining a purchase, and therefore Boom 25 is not able to give such information to the user.

The approval of the purchase of trips/holidays/stays via the Boom25 Service may take up to one hundred and thirty (130) days after the trip/holiday/stay has concluded, and therefore if such purchase is ultimately declined by the Supplier, the purchase will not be considered a qualifying Purchase and will not participate in the count towards a Winning Purchase.   

Payout options

We offer different options when it comes to withdrawing your winnings.

Standard payout: Under the standard payout option, we will pay you 100% (or less than 100% in the types of purchases found here) of the amount of your Winning Purchase (less VAT, currency conversion fees (if applicable), PayPal charges (if any were paid on such Purchase) and delivery charges (if applicable)), to your PayPal account within 21 business days.

Instant payout: Alternatively, you may choose our instant payout option under which we will make the payment to you in only 2 (two) business days. If you choose the instant payout option, we will charge the following handling fees which will be deducted from the applicable winnings before they are paid to you:
 
(1) for Winning Purchases of up to £50: 17% of the winnings
(2) for Winning Purchases between £50.01 – £100: 15% of the winnings
(3) for Winning Purchases between £100.01 – £500: 12% of the winnings
(4) for Winning Purchases between £500.01 – £1,000: 8% of the winnings
(5) for Winning Purchases of £1,000 or more: 6% of the winnings

Gift cards, vouchers and coupons: You may also choose an instant payout option for one or more of the Gift cards, vouchers or coupons which are purchased on the Boom25 Website and the payment for such gift card(s), voucher(s) or coupon(s) will be made by us in one of the following ways, at your choice:

  1. immediately, incurring the above instant payout handling fees; or
  2. within seven (7) business days, with no handling fees.

PayPal account and withdrawal fees

You will need to have a PayPal account in order to withdraw winnings from the Boom25 Website. Please note that PayPal may charge withdrawal fees. We have no control over these fees – please contact PayPal or check their terms if you require more information.

PayPal may also have rules about the maximum or minimum payment that you can receive through its service – please contact PayPal or check their terms if you require more information.

Limited period for withdrawals of winnings; other withdrawal restrictions

You will be able to withdraw winnings with respect to a Winning Purchase and/or any Bonuses through your PayPal account within a period of six (6) months from the date of the Winning Purchase and/or receipt of any such Bonuses (the "Eligibility Period"), after which point the transaction will appear as "unclaimed". After the Eligibility Period has expired, all amounts not withdrawn through your PayPal account will be revoked and you will no longer be able to withdraw any such amounts.

When you wish to withdraw your winning, we may ask you to verify your identity by providing to us your Boom25 account user name, PayPal user ID or other identifying details we may reasonably request.

We reserve the right, at our reasonable discretion, to refuse to make payment with respect to a Winning Purchase, any Payment Bonuses and/or any Referral Bonuses, in each case where we have reasonable grounds to do so, including without limitation in the event that you have engaged in any fraudulent, abusive, or unlawful behaviour.

Bonuses

Purchase Bonuses

You will receive Purchase bonuses ("Purchase Bonuses") for transactions made via the Boom25 Website, according to the amount of your Purchases.

Purchase Bonus amounts cannot be withdrawn separately and are only available for withdrawal once you have a Winning Purchase. Purchase Bonuses will accumulate and be credited to your Account, so that if and when you hit a Winning Purchase, all your accumulated Bonuses can be withdrawn by you, together with your win, in accordance with these Terms of Use. Please note that all bonuses accumulated until the minute a win is received can be withdrawn. All bonuses accumulated after a win can be withdrawn once a user receives their next win.

The Purchase Bonus level breakdown is as follows:

Purchase Bonus     

Spend

(less VAT, currency conversion fees (if applicable), PayPal charges (if any were paid on such Purchase) and delivery charges (if applicable))

10p

£0.0-£25.99

20p

£26-£59.99

70p

£60-£499.99

£6

£500 and over

At BOOM25's sole discretion, we may grant additional Purchase Bonuses from time to time, even to a Buyer of a Purchase which is not a Winning Purchase.

Purchase Bonuses can be viewed via your Dashboard.

Referral Bonuses

When registering to the Boom25 Service, you will receive a personal link (URL) which can be used to gain extra bonuses by inviting friends to join the Boom25 Service (the "Invite Link").

The Invite Link may be sent by you to an unlimited number of people. For each previously unregistered person who clicks on your Invite Link, registers to the Boom25 Service, and Completes his or her first Purchase of over £20 through the Boom25 Service, you will win a bonus in the amount of £3 (which we may change from time to time) (the "Referral Bonus").

Each Referral Bonus will be credited to your Account. If the Referral Bonus is £3 as set forth above, you will be able to withdraw the amount from your Account. If we will decide to decrease the Referral Bonus to less than £3, you will be able to withdraw the amount from your Account when your Referral Bonuses reach an aggregate amount of £3. In any event, the withdrawal of the Referral Bonus will always be subject to the Eligibility Period).

Your Invite Link may be found on your Dashboard under the "Referral" tab and in any email you receive from BOOM25. BOOM25 may terminate your Invite Link if we have reasonable grounds to suspect that you are in breach of these Terms of Use and/or you have engaged in any fraudulent, illegal or abusive activity.

Gift cards, vouchers and coupons 

The use of gift vouchers/gift cards/promotional codes/coupons which were not posted or approved by BOOM25 may not be awarded.

If you Purchase a gift card, voucher or coupon from any Supplier through the Boom25 Website, this Purchase itself will be treated like all other Purchases on the Boom25 Website and will participate in the counting for a Winning Purchase. However, when you (or the person to whom you have sent the gift card, voucher or coupon that you Purchased), use that gift card, voucher or coupon to pay for a Purchase from the relevant Supplier, such use will not be considered a qualifying Purchase and will not participate in the count towards a Winning Purchase.   

Any gift cards, vouchers or coupons Purchased via the Boom25 Service are non-refundable. 

Please note that certain additional terms and limitations apply in relation to specific Suppliers' gift cards – you can find these additional terms here.

If we breach these Terms of Use, we are responsible for loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breaching these Terms of Use, but we are not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable. Loss or damage is foreseeable if either it is obvious that it will happen or if, at the time you use the Boom25 Service, both we and you knew it might happen.

If defective digital content which we have supplied to you damages a device or digital content belonging to you and this is caused by our failure to use reasonable care and skill we will either repair the damage or pay you compensation. However, we will not be liable for damage which you could have avoided by following our advice to apply an update offered to you free of charge or for damage which was caused by you failing to correctly follow installation instructions or to have in place the minimum system requirements advised by us.

If we end your rights under these Terms of Use, you may no longer access or use (or attempt to access or use) the Boom25 Website or the Boom25 Service.

All provisions of these Terms of Use which by their nature are intended to survive termination will survive termination, including, without limitation, any payments of Winning Purchases Completed before the date of termination (except where these Terms of Use permit us to withhold such payments).

Untracked reserve & collect

All products or services Purchased via the Boom25 Service must be Purchased and paid for online so they can be processed by BOOM25. It is possible that Purchases made on 'Reserve & Collect' conditions offered by a Supplier will not be tracked by BOOM25 and therefore will not processed by BOOM25 for the purposes of the Boom25 Service. In these cases, we cannot treat these Purchases as qualifying Purchases under the Boom25 Service, and such Purchases will not participate in the count towards a Winning Purchase.

Customer service

Please be advised that our Customer Service department requires a minimum of 2 to 5 business days to reply to messages.

Other important legal terms

No failure by you or BOOM25 to exercise any right provided under these Terms of Use will be deemed a waiver of any other rights under these Terms of Use.

BOOM25 will not be liable for any failure to perform its obligations under these Terms of Use where such failure results from any cause beyond BOOM25's reasonable control, including, without limitation, any mechanical, electronic, communications or network failure or degradation.

If any term of these Terms of Use is found to be unenforceable or invalid, that provision will be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary so that these Terms of Use will otherwise remain in full force and effect and enforceable.

These Terms of Use, and your use of the Boom25 Service, are personal and you may not transfer your rights or obligations under these Terms of Use (including, without limitation, your right to access and use the Boom25 Website and the Boom25 Service) to any third party.

BOOM25 may transfer, assign or delegate any of its rights or obligations under these Terms of Use to any third party but we will only do so where this will not prejudice your rights under these Terms of Use.

These Terms of Use are governed by and will be construed in accordance with the laws of England and the parties submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of England and Wales.
