3.3. Following their identification with the help of the Card, the Card Owner may collect Points on the Card's unique points account (hereinafter referred to as Points Account) kept by AHS (or by its subcontractor), so the Points are always transferred to the Points Account and deducted from there in accordance with the given transaction. If the card reader in question is able to connect to the central IT system when performing a transaction, the Card may be used for collecting Points and for the redemption of the Points already listed in the account in accordance with the provisions specified by the present GTC.
3.4. Only one Card shall be issued per account.
3.5. The appearances and the images of the Cards may vary, but this does not influence their functions specified herein.
3.6.

3.7. The Owner shall present the Card physically in order to earn or redeem Points. Only the headquarters of AHS has the right to deviate from this provision at its own discretion. Should the guest request a Card following the use of a Partner's services specified under Section 2.3, when paying the price of the given service, the Card Owner becomes entitled to earn Points as specified under Section 3.9.1 on the basis of the price paid for the service , entitling the Owner to apply for a Card by attaching the invoice issued by the Partner to the completed application form. Hence, the Points earned for the invoice will be transferred to the account of the Owner after the application has been accepted, at the personalisation of the Card.
3.8. The collection and redemption of the Points shall be governed by the points scale published on the website of AHS and displayed on the premises of our Partners accepting the Card. It is always the total of the invoice that shall be considered, calculated in Hungarian Forint (HUF). The conditions of granting and redeeming Points may vary according to the Partner involved and they may be amended - but not retroactively - at any time by the Partners or by AHS. The conditions of granting and redeeming Points valid for the certain Partner involved shall be published by the Partner on his/her website and/or displayed on his/her premises.
3.9. The Points shall be transferred to or deducted from (if the Owner chooses to redeem the Points) the account when paying for the products or services used under the rules specified below:
3.9.1. Provided that the booking made by the Card Owner meets the conditions specified under Section 3.10 , the Partner shall transfer the relevant amount of points to be earned by the Owner for the total gross price (shall the Card Owner cover part of his/her costs by the redemption of his/her Points, the total gross price of the invoice less the cost covered by the Owner's Points shall be considered ) paid for the services the Owner has used in the Partner's hotel to the Owner's account, pursuant to the points scale specified under Section 3.8. Points shall be earned for the purchase of any products or services, regarding which the granting of Points is not considered illegal. Fractional Points shall not be earned and the rounding of Points shall be based on the mathematical rules of rounding, with 0.5 being rounded up. No Points shall be earned for the tourist tax paid.
3.9.2. The Card Owner is entitled to fully or partially cover the gross total of the invoice (except for the tourist tax) of the Partner's services he has used by the redemption of the Points of his Points Account pursuant to the points scale specified under Section 3.8. The Card Owner is entitled to use his Points immediately after they have been transferred to the Points Account, except for the use of Points earned on the basis of the service needed for the application for the Card, that might only be used once the Card Owner has received his/her Card, in accordance with the rules specified under Section 3.7.
3.10.Points shall be granted only for payments made in connection with direct booking with the Partner's hotel, in other words, only if the Card Owner has made his/her booking in person, at the Partner's exhibition stand, via an e-mail to the Partner, phone, fax or the Partner's website, or through the central booking system at accenthotels.hu.
3.11.The collection and redemption of Points may take place only on the basis of the purchase of products and services of which the Card Owner is both the recipient and the buyer. The Cards of more than one Card Owners shall not be used simultaneously concerning one transaction or a single service.

3.15.Apart from the redemption of the Points used to fully or partially cover the gross total of the invoice (except for the tourist tax) of the Partner's services he/she has used, the Card Owner is entitled to make use of any other vouchers issued by the Partner pursuant to the rules specified by the Partner.
3.16.The Points earned in the framework of the Program may solely be redeemed to cover the costs - to fully or partially pay the price of the products or services used (except for the tourist tax) - of the Partners' products or services. Points may never and under no circumstances be exchanged to cash, and the Card Owner is not entitled to claim cash payment in return of the Points or the redemption of the Points.
3.17.The Card Owner may select the method of payment used (available at the Partner) to pay the price of the purchase (services) less the amount covered by his Points.
3.18.The maximum amount of the invoice that might be covered by the redemption of Points may vary according to the Partners concerned.
3.19.Points may be transferred to or deducted from the Points Account only when paying for the products or services used at the Partner, by handing the Card over to the representative acting on behalf of the Partner. Due to security reasons it is not possible to grant or redeem Points retroactively or after having paid for services and having left the cashier's desk. The Card Owner shall check the number of Points transferred to his Points Account or the number of Points deducted from there immediately on the basis of the receipt he is given. Complaints regarding wrongfully transferred or deducted Points shall be made by the Card Owner on the premises, prior to leaving the cashier's desk. If the complaint is not handled adequately, the Card Owner is entitled to lodge a complaint about this at the Partner's manager on duty and/or at the Customer Service of AHS (mainly via e-mail) by completing the standard Card Complaint Form. When receiving the card the cashiers of the Partners presume that the person handing over the Card is the real Owner of it eligible for the Card and the Points of the Points Account; they do not check the owner's identity.
3.20.Should a breakdown of the checkout systems or the POS terminals occur, neither the recording (collecting), nor the redemption of the Points may take place on the premises or retroactively later on, provided that the Partner has displayed this piece of information at a visible place, close to the cashier's desks.
3.21.Should the breakdown of the POS terminal or till, or the technical fault of the Card only interrupt the card transaction in progress, the Partner is to make out a so called Point Correction receipt about the interrupted process of the granting or the redemption of Points. This receipt shall be signed both by the representative of the Partner and the Card Owner, and a copy of it shall be given to the Card Owner, while another copy is to be sent to the headquarters of AHS, where the Points listed on the Point Correction receipt will be transferred to the client's account or deducted from there within 15 (fifteen) days.
3.22.If the process of granting and/or redeeming Points temporarily differs from the prevailing conditions due to technical reasons, the Partner shall inform the Card Owners of this fact on a bill located at the cashier's desks. The Partners are entitled to deviate from the prevailing conditions of the process of granting and/or redeeming Points due to technical reasons. No claims shall be made either against the Partners, or the AHS because of such changes.
3.23.Should the transaction of granting or redeeming Points fail due to circumstances caused by the Card Owner, the Points cannot be transferred or redeemed retroactively later on. Such circumstances may include a damage to the Card or the magnetic stripe, the Card being blocked or suspended, or the Card Owner not having the Card with himself/herself.
3.24.AHS registers all the transactions of granting or redeeming Points on the Accounts of the Card Owners. It is always the number of Points registered on the Points Account that shall be taken into account. The Card Owner is given a receipt regarding every Points transaction. However, if there is a difference between the number of Points on the receipt and the current account balance, it is the balance of the Points Account that shall be taken into account.
4. Transferability of the Cards (Points Accounts) and the Points
4.1. Points may be transferred from one Points Account to another (hereinafter referred to as Target Account); two (or more) Card Owners may decide to merge their Points together. The Card Owners may decide on the amount of Points they wish to transfer to each other's Account. The transfer of Points to another account can be initiated by calling our customer service (the Card Owner needs to identify him-/herself) or in writing, by completing the required standard form to be obtained at the reception of the Partners' hotels, that shall be handed in together with a private document providing full evidence and the declaration of the Card Owner's will to have the Points transferred. The transaction is to be completed by AHS, and it shall be deemed effective once the Point(s) have been transferred to the Target Account, granting only AHS the right to make decisions concerning the Points and the Owner of the account the exclusive right to validly make decisions involving third parties regarding the use of Points within the limits specified herein. At the same time, all the previous owner's entitlements concerning the use of the Points already transferred to the Target Account shall cease. AHS is not obliged to check the authenticity of the forms properly completed and shall not be held responsible for such actions, but should AHS have any doubts concerning the statements initiating the transfer of Point(s) to another account, in its discretion it may refuse the transaction, and in such cases none of the Owners is entitled to make a claim against AHS.
4.2. In the event of death of the Card Owner, AHS suspends the Card from 10.00 am of the banking business day following the day of the receipt of the notification delivered by the latest daily deadline for notifications up till the final decision of the probate proceedings.

AHS shall issue a certification of the Points Account balance of the deceased to the Card Owner's heirs for the probate proceedings. At the presentation of the grant of probate, AHS shall block and destroy the Card of the deceased person for good. His/her Points Account shall be frozen and the Points of the account shall be transferred to the Points account of the heirs (if they have one) according to the provisions of the valid grant of probate. If the heir does not own a Card (or a Points Account) and does not wish to request one, he/she shall be considered to have refused the Points inherited and regarding those, he may not bring any claim against AHS in the future.
4.3. AHS is not to be held responsible for the settlement of claims arising from the transfer of Cards or Points, especially the sales thereof, their swapping for other products, them being given to a third party or a lien over them, having regard to the fact, that the Card and the Points embody personal entitlements - except for the transactions specified under Section 4.1 and cases of succession specified under Section 2 4.- therefore, they shall not be transferred.
