II. TERMS OF SALE

About the AlaMitad Service

The AlaMitad Service is a social coupon site that offers you the opportunity to purchase, at a discount, vouchers (each a "Voucher") redeemable for products and services offered by merchants (each a "Merchant") at their retail locations. Here’s how it works: On our site you will find various half off deals to choose from. If you see a deal you like and you want to proceed with buying the Voucher to that deal then click on the appropriate button to purchase the Voucher. You will be asked to sign in to your account, and then you will be required to pay for your purchase through our payment Service Provider, which is PayPal. You will be asked to enter your billing information (e.g., credit card number and expiration date). You also will be required to agree that the purchase of the Voucher is subject to the terms of this Visitor Agreement (including the Terms of Use and these Terms of Sale). Once you have entered all of the required information, you must select the purchase button to purchase the Voucher. (If you are a first-time visitor to our site, or otherwise have not previously registered to use our Service, you will be required to register in order to purchase the Voucher.) Once you click the "Place Order" button, your credit card will be charged and you will receive an email confirming your purchase and also you will receive a link to printing your voucher (if applicable for that deal). You can also view and print your Voucher by logging into your AlaMitad account.

Please note that, although AlaMitad is advertising Vouchers offered and provided by third-party Merchants, not by AlaMitad, when you purchase a Voucher, the charge on your credit card statement for your purchase of the Voucher will identify Mundo Hispanico Acquisition, LLC as the merchant of record.

Voucher Redemption and Expiration

Each Voucher will state both the amount you paid for the Voucher (your "Payment") and the total dollar value for which you can redeem the Voucher for the applicable Merchant's products and/or services (the "Value"). The difference between the Payment and the Value is referred to as the "Promotional Value". For example, if you pay $10 for a Voucher that entitles you to receive up to $30 worth of goods from a Merchant, then the Payment for that Voucher would be $10, the Value of the Voucher would be $30, and the Promotional Value of that Voucher would be $20 (in other words, the difference between the $30 Value and the $10 Payment).

In order to redeem your Voucher, you must log in to your account, print out your Voucher, and present the printed Voucher to the Merchant prior to the expiration date stated on the Voucher (if any). Also, if you purchased a voucher that is printable (not sent by us via mail), then you must wait 1 business day before using it at the Merchant. In the event we offer the ability to access Vouchers on mobile devices, you may, as an alternative, present your Voucher to the Merchant on your supported device. When you purchase goods or services from the Merchant and present your Voucher for redemption, the Merchant will apply your redemption purchase against your Payment first, and then against any Promotional Value that may remain.

If an expiration date is stated on the Voucher, then the Promotional Value will expire on the expiration date. In addition, the Payment will expire on the expiration date except to the extent that applicable state law requires the Merchant to honor and redeem the Payment for a period of time beyond the stated expiration date.

Voucher Refunds

Except as expressly provided below, no refunds, cash back, or credit will be issued at any time for your Payment or for the Promotional Value of any Voucher, unless required by applicable state law. No refunds, cash back, or credit will be issued at any time for the Payment or Promotional Value of any partially used Voucher, unless otherwise required by applicable state law.

Notwithstanding the above, we will refund your Payment for an unused Voucher in the event that (i) the Merchant ceases doing business prior to the expiration date (if any) stated on the Voucher; or (ii) the Merchant does not honor the Voucher prior to the expiration date (if any) stated on the Voucher. In order to request a refund under one of the circumstances above, please contact us at help@alamitad.com using “Refunds” as the subject heading and provide us with your name, address, email address, Voucher number, and a brief description of the reason you were unable to redeem your Voucher. If we determine that you qualify for a refund as set forth above, we will refund your Payment to the credit card you used to purchase the Voucher.

E-Commerce

The Deals offered through this Service are provided by third-party merchants. We are not responsible for the quality, accuracy, timeliness, reliability or any other aspect of products and services provided by a third party, and we make no warranties regarding any such products or services. When you purchase a Voucher on or through the Service, the Voucher itself may be subject to additional terms and conditions. Any such terms that apply to your purchase of the Voucher through the Service will be presented as part of your transaction. For more information regarding a Merchant that is offering a Voucher for purchase through the Service, visit that Merchant’s website and click on its information links or contact the Merchant directly. YOU RELEASE US, OUR PARENT COMPANY(IES) AND OUR AND THEIR AFFILIATES FROM ANY DAMAGES THAT YOU MAY INCUR, AND AGREE NOT TO ASSERT ANY CLAIMS AGAINST US OR ANY OF OUR PARENT COMPANY(IES) AND OUR AND THEIR AFFILIATES, ARISING FROM YOUR PURCHASE OR USE OF ANY PRODUCTS OR SERVICES USING VOUCHERS PURCHASED THROUGH THIS SERVICE.

General Terms and Conditions

Each Merchant may impose its own terms and conditions on the use or redemption of a Voucher. Except as otherwise stated on a Voucher or required by law, the following terms and conditions apply to all Vouchers:

  • Each Voucher is issued by the Merchant for promotional purposes only and has no cash value;
  • Limit one Voucher per person per Deal.
  • Vouchers cannot be combined with any other coupons, discounts, or promotions;
  • Each Voucher may be redeemed only one time. If you redeem the Voucher for less than its face value, you will not be entitled to a credit, cash or a new Voucher equal to the difference between the face value and the amount you redeemed, unless otherwise required by law.
  • Vouchers may not be copied or duplicated. Any such copies or duplicates are null and void.
  • Vouchers cannot be used for taxes, tips, prior balances, or shipping and handling charges.
  • The redemption of Vouchers for alcoholic beverages will be at the discretion of the Merchant and is subject to applicable law.
  • Neither Mundo Hispanico Acquisition, LLC. nor the Merchant will be responsible for lost or stolen Vouchers, or for Vouchers that are printed in an unreadable or illegible manner.
  • The Merchant has the right to substitute goods or services of equal or greater value.
  • The Merchant is the issuer of the Voucher and is the seller of the goods and services for which the Voucher may be redeemed. Accordingly, the Merchant is solely responsible for: (i) complying with the terms of the Voucher and redeeming the Voucher; (ii) any and all injuries, damages, costs, liabilities and claims arising out of, or relating to, the Merchant or its goods or services; and (iii) any unclaimed property liability arising out of Vouchers that are unredeemed or are only partially redeemed.

If a Voucher contains terms or conditions that conflict with the above terms and conditions, then the terms or conditions stated on the Voucher will control for that Voucher only.
