Amazon.ae Balance and Amazon.ae Gift Card Terms and Conditions

The following are the terms and conditions applicable to your Amazon.ae Balance and Amazon.ae Gift Cards. Last Updated: 20 March 2019

Gift Cards and Amazon.ae Balance Redemption

Amazon.ae Gift Cards are issued by Souq.com FZ LLC, and include Amazon.ae Gift Cards that are automatically added to your Amazon.ae Balance when you "reload" your balance, receive an "allowance", or (where available) use an "Amazon Cash" barcode ("Gift Cards"). Your Amazon.ae Balance displays the total remaining balance of all Gift Cards that have been applied to your Amazon.ae account but not yet applied to a purchase. We may refer to your Amazon.ae Balance as your "Amazon Balance", "Gift Card balance", or "GC Balance". To view your Amazon.ae Balance, visit Your Account on Amazon.ae. Purchases are deducted from your Amazon.ae Balance. Any unused Amazon.ae Balance will remain associated with your Amazon.ae account. If a purchase exceeds your Amazon.ae Balance, the remaining amount must be paid with another payment method.

Gift Cards may only be redeemed toward the purchase of eligible goods and services provided by Souq.com FZ LLC and/or its affiliates on www.amazon.ae. In these terms, "affiliate" means, with respect to a particular person, any entity that directly or indirectly controls, is controlled by, or is under common control with such person . Eligible goods and services are subject to change in our sole discretion. Redemption of Gift Cards at any affiliated property is subject to change in our sole discretion. Souq.com FZ LLC or its affiliates ("we", "us", and "our") may provide Gift Card purchasers with information about the redemption status of Gift Cards that they purchase.

Limitations

Your Amazon.ae Balance cannot be used to purchase other Gift Cards, prepaid open loop cards, or certain third-party gift cards. Gift Cards cannot be reloaded; resold; used for payment outside of www.amazon.ae or its affiliated properties; used for unauthorized advertising, marketing, sweepstakes, promotional or commercial purposes, including to facilitate the resale or shipment of goods from Amazon.ae; redeemed for more than face value; transferred for value; redeemed for cash; returned for a cash refund (except to the extent required by law); or used in a manner otherwise prohibited by our Amazon.ae Gift Card Restrictions and Prohibited Activities policy. No portion of your Amazon.ae Balance may be transferred to another Amazon.ae account. Neither your Amazon.ae Balance nor your Gift Cards may be applied to the purchase of goods or services at any Amazon-affiliated property outside of the United Arab Emirates.

Risk of Loss

The risk of loss and title for Gift Cards pass to the purchaser upon our electronic transmission of the Gift Card to the purchaser or designated recipient, or our delivery to the carrier, whichever is applicable. Gift Cards must be obtained from Amazon or an authorized third party, and you are responsible for safeguarding your Amazon.ae Balance or Gift Card from unauthorized use. We are not responsible if any Gift Card is lost, stolen, or destroyed, or if your Amazon.ae Balance or any Gift Card is used without your permission. There are a variety of Gift Card scams that request payment by Gift Card. Amazon is not responsible for, and assumes no liability to you for, any unlawful conduct or fraud by any third party associated with any Gift Card.

Use of Amazon.ae Balance or any Gift Card in Violation of these Terms and Conditions

By using a Gift Card you agree to comply with these terms and conditions, and not to use a Gift Card in any manner that is misleading, deceptive, unfair, or otherwise harmful to Amazon.ae, its affiliates, or its customers. We reserve the right, without notice to you, to void Gift Cards (including as a component of your Amazon.ae Balance) without a refund, suspend or terminate customer accounts, suspend or terminate the ability to use our services, cancel or limit orders, and bill alternative forms of payment if we suspect that a Gift Card is obtained, used, or applied to an Amazon.ae account (or your Amazon.ae Balance is applied to a purchase) fraudulently, unlawfully, or otherwise in violation of these terms and conditions.

Limitation of Liability

TO THE FULL EXTENT PERMISSIBLE BY LAW, WE MAKE NO WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, WITH RESPECT TO GIFT CARDS OR YOUR AMAZON.AE BALANCE , INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. TO THE FULL EXTENT PERMISSIBLE BY LAW, IN THE EVENT A GIFT CARD IS NON-FUNCTIONAL, YOUR SOLE REMEDY, AND OUR SOLE LIABILITY, WILL BE THE REPLACEMENT OF THAT GIFT CARD.

Disputes

These terms and conditions are governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the Dubai International Finance Centre ("DIFC"). If any dispute, claim, difference or controversy arising out of, relating to or having any connection with these terms and conditions, or the existence, validity, interpretation, performance, breach or termination and/or any dispute relating to any non-contractual obligations arising out of or in connection with them (for the purpose of this section, a "Dispute") qualifies for determination through the DIFC Small Claims Tribunal ("SCT"), then the SCT shall have exclusive jurisdiction to settle any such Dispute. For Disputes that do not qualify for determination through the SCT, the courts of the DIFC shall have exclusive jurisdiction to settle such Dispute and each party submits to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of the DIFC. For the purposes of this section, you waive any objection to either the courts of the DIFC or the SCT, as applicable, on the grounds that either of them is an inconvenient or inappropriate forum to settle any Dispute.

General Terms

The Amazon.ae Conditions of Use apply. No fees apply to Gift Cards. We reserve the right to require additional verification of your identity, Gift Card or account ownership, or provision of an additional payment instrument, before you are able to apply a Gift Card to your account or your Amazon.ae Balance to a purchase. We reserve the right to change these terms and conditions without notice, from time to time at our sole discretion. All terms and conditions are applicable to the extent permitted by law. Changes to these terms and conditions will be notified by updating the terms and conditions as set out on this webpage. If any of these terms and conditions are deemed invalid, void, or for any reason unenforceable, that unenforceable term will be deemed severable and will not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining terms and conditions.

All Gift Cards and the portion of your Amazon.ae Balance made up of those Gift Cards, expire ten years from their date of issuance.
