RULES AND REGULATION GOVERNING THE PROGRAM

1. All participants must be registered in the Access Joico program to be eligible to earn Access Joico points.

2. Eligible participants are defined as Salon Owners or Independent Operators within a Salon operating business in Canada.

3. Eligible participants can register online at www.accessjoico.ca. Please note that you will be asked, during the registration process, to identify the name of your Distributor Sales Representative, so please have that information available.

4. Only one (1) registration is allowed for EACH eligible program participant. Any additional registrations will be cancelled by Piidea Canada.

5. Points are earned when Salon Owners or Independent Operators within a salon make purchases of Joico chemical products only, which include the following: Vero K-PAK Color products, Vero K-PAK Chrome products, Vero K-PAK Age Defy products, LumiShine Color products, Joico Color Intensity products, Veroxides, Developers, Lighteners, Activators, Boosters and Stainless Haircolor Removal, K-PAK Waves, Vero K-PAK Color openers and promotions, LumiShine Color openers and promotions and  Vero K-PAK Color/LumiShine/Color Intensity accessories including Swatch Books, Modular Mixing Bowls, Applicator Brushes, Applicator Bottles, Aprons, Capes, etc.

6. Points are earned based on the following formula: A salon earns 5 points for every one dollar ($1) of chemical products purchased, with a $300 minimum monthly purchase requirement.

7. Participants will only be credited for qualifying purchases after successfully completing the registration process. Points will only be assigned for a salon’s monthly purchases beginning the month in which they register.

8. Points are tabulated every month, based on purchases from the previous month, and awarded after the purchases have been verified. By participating in this program, the participant gives its distributor authorization to forward their purchase information to Joico distributor management personnel, Joico sales representatives, Joico and the independant company managing the program on Joico's behalf.

9. Piidea Canada reserves the right to audit all purchases to validate the information submitted. If the purchases cannot be verified, then points are not awarded. Piidea Canada reserves the right to disallow points and disqualify any participant if any form of misrepresentation has occurred.

10. Upon verification of points earned, points are assigned to the participant’s account approximately fifteen (15) working days after the month-end period in which they were earned.

11. Once the points are assigned, participants will have access to use their points to order rewards online at www.accessjoico.ca.

12. Participants will be notified every two (2) months of their points account status via a Statement issued via email. Participants may also check their points account online at any time. However, new points earned will only be added to the account approximately fifteen (15) working days after the month-end period in which they were earned.

13. A participant will only be awarded points after meeting the monthly minimum purchase requirement of $300 per month. If a participant does not meet the $300 minimum, points will not be awarded for that month.

14. Participants must remain “active” in the Access Joico Program to continue to earn and redeem points. If a participant does not meet the $300 monthly minimum purchase requirement for a period of six (6) consecutive months, then the participant will be considered “inactive”.

15. Participants who are considered “inactive” may be removed from the program at the discretion of Piidea Canada. If a participant is removed from the program due to being “inactive”, they will be notified by Piidea Canada and will have 90 days from the date of the notification to redeem all outstanding points. After this 90-day period, all remaining points will be forfeited. Once points are forfeited, they cannot be used or reclaimed by participant - no exceptions.

NOTE: Participants may also be removed from the program at the discretion of Piidea Canada without notice and with immediate forfeiture of all outstanding points for the following reasons: bankruptcy or other business closure, participant’s cessation of business with the Distributor who verified their Access Joico account, changes in ownership or controlling interest of participant’s business.

16. Piidea Canada, it’s Distributors, and Distributor sales representatives and employees do not qualify for points.

17. Points are:

  • Awarded to only one participant
  • Not redeemable for cash
  • Non-transferable to different participants
  • Subject to verification
  • Valid only while the participant is active in the Access Joico Program

 

18. Points are the only form of payment accepted for items in the Access Joico catalogue EXCEPT for items in the “BRAND NAME HOMEWARES”, “BRAND NAME ELECTRONICS,” “BRAND NAME FASHION/ACCESSORIES, “ BRAND NAME OTHER” categories, as well as specially marked items in the “EDUCATION” category. For these items only, a combination of points and credit card payment can be used. To process a payment using a combination of points and credit card, simply refer to your shopping cart once the items have been added. At the bottom of the page you will be able to allocate a specific amount of points to your items and the balance will be paid by credit card after proceeding to checkout. Visa and Mastercard are accepted through the Access Joico site. Please order carefully:

• For education purchases of merchandise items (such as DVDs or booklets), the same return policy applies. These items cannot be returned unless damaged during shipment.
• For education purchases applied to a “trip” or “class”, refunds will only be granted upon cancellation of the event by Piidea Canada or based on the specific refund/cancellation policies of the individual event.

It is the responsibility of the participant to read and understand the terms and conditions of any event purchased through the Access Joico program. For details on any education event, contact your Joico Sales Representative.

Any issues arising from use of your credit card may result in cancellation of your order. Your points will NOT be reimbursed. Any attempt to cancel payment on an approved order against the specific refund/cancellation policies outlined here or described in the official policies of an individual event may result in cancellation of your Access Joico account.

 

19. If a participant is registered and active in both the Access Joico and i-experience programs, and wants to combine points from both programs, points can be combined by following this process:

  • First, you must make this request via email, identifying your participation in both programs, and request the points from one (1) program be “transferred” to the other program
  • Once we receive this request, we will “debit” the points from the account you have requested, and then “credit” them to the other account you specify
  • Once the points are combined, you can then redeem from that account
  • To request to combine your points, please send your request to the following email address: info@accessjoico.ca, or info@i-experience.ca. You must include the following information: name, phone number, number of points in each account, your request to “transfer” points from one account (Access Joico, i-experience) to the other account (Access Joico, i-experience).

20. Chain accounts with multiple locations must submit one (1) registration PER SALON LOCATION. If a single location wants to pool point values, please follow the process stipulated for combining points, identified in Rule # 19 above. Please ensure you follow this step-by-step process very carefully.

21. All points earned in the Access Joico program are subject to a rolling 18-month expiration policy, meaning that points earned in Month 1 will expire in Month 19 if they have not been used. For example:

  • A salon earned 6,000 points in May 2016
  • If they spend at least 6,000 points before November 2017, there will be no change to the salon account
  • If they spend no points before November 2017, the 6,000 points will be deducted from their account
  • If they spend only 3,500 points before November 2017, only 2,500 points will be deducted from their account

22. Any discrepancies in points Statements or online points account information must be reported within two (2) months from the receipt of the last Statement. If notification is not received within two (2) months, then no adjustments will be made.
