9. Fooda Popup Rewards
This Section sets forth the terms of the Fooda Rewards program (“Fooda Rewards”) which is operated by Fooda. BY ACCESSING OR PARTICIPATING IN THE FOODA REWARDS PROGRAM, YOU AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THESE TERMS OF USE. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THESE FOODA REWARDS TERMS OF USE, DO NOT PARTICIPATE IN THE FOODA REWARDS PROGRAM.

Fooda reserves the right to change, modify and/or eliminate Fooda Rewards, or any policy, FAQ, or guideline pertaining to Fooda Rewards at any time and in its sole discretion. Any changes or modifications will be effective immediately upon posting the revisions to www.fooda.com, and you waive any right you may have to receive specific notice of such changes or modifications. Your participation in Fooda Rewards confirms your acceptance of these Fooda Rewards terms, and any such changes or modifications; therefore, you should review these Fooda Rewards terms and applicable policies and FAQs and visit www.fooda.com frequently to keep abreast of and understand the terms and conditions that apply to Fooda Rewards.

Fooda Rewards is one way in which Fooda strives to reward and thank loyal customers for patronizing our business. Members of Fooda Rewards are able to earn and accumulate “Points" that can be redeemed for Fooda Rewards benefits, also known as “Rewards," at participating Fooda Popup locations and with participating Fooda restaurant partners. Unfortunately, not all Fooda Popup locations and Fooda restaurant partners have the ability to award Points or honor Rewards at this time.

Joining Fooda Rewards: There is one way to enroll in Fooda Rewards and begin accumulating Points. Download the Fooda iOS or Android mobile app and sign up. If you already have the Fooda iOS or Android consumer mobile app, follow the prompt to add your phone number to your existing account. At participating Fooda Popup locations, provide your phone number to the cashier as part of the transaction to earn Points for your purchase. If you use a credit card during a purchase in a jurisdiction where your phone number can be requested, Fooda will link your credit card to your account and automatically provide Points for future purchases made with the same credit card.

Earning Points: You can earn Points by making purchases by providing your mobile phone number or using a linked credit card at any participating Fooda Popup location with a participating Fooda restaurant partner. You will earn Points based on the value of your purchase at the rate of two (2) Points for each One Dollar ($1.00) you spend at participating Fooda Popup locations. Taxes, coupons and Rewards do not qualify to earning Points. Points are earned and awarded in fractional amounts depending on the value of your purchase. Generally, Points for qualifying purchases from participating locations are automatically added to your account within twenty-four (24) hours. If you return food that you purchased or receive a refund, any Points you received as part of the initial purchase will be deducted from your Points balance for the amount of the return or refund. Fooda reserves the right to change how Points are earned, deducted or rewarded, or any other terms related to Points, such as Point expiration, at any time and without advanced notice.

Fooda Rewards: Currently, there are three (3) Reward levels within Fooda Rewards that are available based on the number of Points that you have available. Once you have accumulated enough points to reach a level, you can redeem the Points for a Reward coupon within the Fooda mobile app. The Reward coupon can be used at any participating Fooda Popup location and participating restaurant partner for a discount on a purchase. Each Reward coupon has an expiration date. You can view and track your Reward balance and available Rewards by using the Fooda mobile app. Fooda reserves the right to change the number of Reward levels, to change the Reward coupon amounts and Rewards associated with each level in its sole discretion at any time, and to cancel the Rewards program. You should visit www.fooda.com for the latest information on Fooda Rewards.

Miscellaneous: Your Points and Rewards, and your account under Fooda Rewards are personal to you and may not be sold, transferred or assigned to, or shared with, family, friends or others, or used by you for any commercial purpose. You may have only one (1) Fooda Rewards account and that account is personal to you.

Without notice to you, Fooda reserves the right to suspend and/or terminate your account and/or your participation in Fooda Rewards if Fooda determines in its sole discretion that you have violated this Agreement, you have more than one (1) account, or that your account has been used in any unauthorized, deceptive, fraudulent or otherwise unlawful ways. Fooda may, in its sole discretion, suspend, cancel or combine accounts that appear to be duplicative. In the event that your participation in Fooda Rewards is terminated, then all accumulated Points and Rewards in your account are void.

Without notice to you, Fooda also reserves the right to void specific Reward Points if Fooda, in its sole discretion, determines that the Points were earned through unauthorized, deceptive, fraudulent or otherwise unlawful means. Fooda reserves the right to terminate, discontinue or cancel the Fooda Rewards program at any time and in its sole discretion without notice to you.

If those efforts fail, by using the Sites or Fooda Services you agree that any claim, dispute, or controversy you may have against Fooda arising out of, relating to, or connected in any way with this Agreement, the Sites, the Fooda Services, or any purchase(s), shall be resolved exclusively by final and binding arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association ("AAA") and conducted before a single arbitrator pursuant to the applicable Rules and Procedures established by AAA ("Rules and Procedures"). You agree further that: (a) the arbitration shall be held at a location determined by AAA pursuant to the Rules and Procedures (provided that such location is reasonably convenient for you), or at such other location as may be mutually agreed upon by you and Fooda; (b) the arbitrator shall apply Illinois law consistent with the Federal Arbitration Act and applicable statutes of limitations, and shall honor claims of privilege recognized at law; (c) there shall be no authority for any claims to be arbitrated on a class or representative basis; arbitration can decide only your and/or Fooda's individual claims; and the arbitrator may not consolidate or join the claims of other persons or parties who may be similarly situated; (d) in the event that you are able to demonstrate that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the costs of litigation, Fooda will pay as much of your filing and hearing fees in connection with the arbitration as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive; and (e) with the exception of subpart (c) above, if any part of this arbitration provision is deemed to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal, or otherwise conflicts with the Rules and Procedures established by AAA, then the balance of this arbitration provision shall remain in effect and shall be construed in accordance with its terms as if the invalid, unenforceable, illegal or conflicting provision were not contained herein. If, however, subpart (c) is found to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal, then the entirety of this arbitration provision shall be null and void, and neither you nor Fooda shall be entitled to arbitrate the applicable dispute.
