26. Even if we delay in enforcing this contract, we can still enforce it later
If we fail to insist that you meet your obligations under these Terms or if we do not enforce our rights against you or if we delay in doing so, that will not mean that we have waived our rights against you and it does not mean that you do not have to comply with those obligations. If we do waive a default by you, we will only do so in writing and that will not mean that we will automatically waive any later default by you. Even if we delay in enforcing this contract, we can still enforce it later.

1. About these Reward Rules
These Reward Rules explain how you can use the App to earn points and exchange them for rewards.
These Reward Rules are part of the HuYu App Terms and Conditions of Use ("Terms") and should be read with the Terms as one document.
To make these Reward Rules easy to understand, we've defined certain words and expressions. When we use any of the words or expressions below in these Reward Rules, they have the meanings given below:
"HuYu Reward Scheme" means the scheme described in the Terms and in these Reward Rules allowing users to earn points by sharing data and opinions with us and to exchange points for reward
"Receipt" means a receipt for any purchase you have made as a consumer at or from a Recognised Retailer.
"Recognised Retailer" means any UK branch or website of the following retailers:
"Your Supermarket Data" means personal data that relates to you and that is controlled by a Recognised Supermarket.
3. How can you earn points?
The HuYu App allows you to share your data and opinions with us in exchange for points that can be redeemed in exchange for rewards.
Points earning activities
The first time you sign up to the App with Facebook or Google.
When you successfully scan or forward a receipt into the App that has not been scanned before. You will only earn points for one receipt per retailer per day, but you can scan or forward up to ten receipts every seven days.
When you complete a survey on the App that you have not previously completed.
When you successfully refer a friend (your friend downloads the app and successfully scans their first receipt).
When prompted within the App, you successfully share your desktop web browser history using the HuYu SnapShot extension.
You will be able to start collecting points once you have accepted our Terms (by clicking on the "continue" button at the bottom of the Terms) and once the App has launched on your device.
You do not need to sign up to the App to collect points; but you do need to sign up to the App to redeem points (see Paragraph 4 below).
If you collect points before signing up to the App for the first time, details of the number of points you have collected will be stored locally on your device. So if your device is lost or stolen we won’t be able to restore points that you have earned. However, after you sign up to the App for the first time, we will keep a record of the number of points awarded to you and the number of points that you have redeemed. To protect your points, we strongly recommend that you sign up to the App as soon as you begin to collect points.
4. Redeeming points
To redeem points, just open the App and press the rewards button in the navigation bar. You will be able to see if you have enough points to redeem and if so you will be directed to the website of our selected reward partner. From there, you will be able to exchange your points for rewards. Rewards are electronic gift cards with selected merchants. Rewards are subject to the relevant online retailer's terms and conditions.
Points must be redeemed in batches of 500 points. For example, if you have 510 points, you can redeem 500 points, leaving a balance of 10 unredeemed points. If you have fewer than 500 points, you'll need to earn more points to reach the 500 Point threshold before you can redeem.
We attach a notional value to a Point. The notional value of a Point is £0.01 (one pence). That means that when you redeem 500 points, you will receive a reward to the value of £5. We will not exchange points for cash payments to you.
Once a gift card is delivered, it is non-refundable and non-exchangeable.
A maximum reward value of £50 per day applies. This limit is subject to change at any time. If you have questions or problems relating to the receipt of a gift card, please contact our rewards partner directly and they will aim to respond to questions or resolve your issue within 3 business days.
If you have issues relating to the use of (rather than the receipt of) a gift card, please contact the gift card merchant’s customer service team.
5. Changes to the Reward Rules
We reserve the right to change and substitute from time to time our rewards partner, selected online retailers that we partner with to provide rewards, and the rewards that can be obtained by redeeming points. For details of the rewards that are available at any time and other information about the rewards or problems, please visit our partner’s website.
We may also change:
If we plan to change the Reward Rules in any way that affects how you can earn points or how many points are awarded or the notional value of a Point (a "Points Change"), we will give you reasonable advance notice of a Points Change by sending you a pop-up notification via the App, and you will have 30 days from the notification to redeem your points. By continuing to use the App after a Points Change takes effect, you are agreeing to be legally bound by the Points Change.
6. Withholding points and rewards
We reserve the right not to allocate points and/or rewards to you if you are in breach of the Terms (see Paragraph 8).
7. Personal use only
The HuYu Reward Scheme is for personal, non-business only. If we determine that your use of the HuYu Reward Scheme constitutes business use, you acknowledge that we may take any action we consider appropriate including cancelling any or all points awarded to you and/or terminating your right to App and excluding you from the HuYu Reward Scheme (see Paragraph 8).
Gift cards are not for resale.
Fraud, misuse, or breach: Under our Terms, if you do not comply with the Terms, these Reward Rules or applicable laws, or if we have reasonable grounds to suspect fraud or misuse of the App by you or by anybody using your device or account details, we may immediately terminate your right to use the App and exclude you from the HuYu Reward Scheme by giving you written notice setting out the reasons (see Paragraph 17 of the Terms). From the date that we give you written notice, all points that you have collected but not yet redeemed will be forfeited, and you will not be entitled to earn any more points, even if you continue to use the App or to share your data with us.
Terminating for non-use: You can choose to stop using the App or to delete it from your device at any time. If you haven’t logged in to HuYu for 2 years, we will deem you a lapsed user and close your HuYu account within 30 days. Unredeemed points will be forfeited after the end of this 30 day period.
If we discontinue the App or the Reward Scheme: If we discontinue the App or the HuYu Reward Scheme, we will give you advance notice in accordance with the Terms (see Paragraph 18 of the Terms). You will be able to continue to earn and redeem points in accordance with these Reward Rules for 60 days after the date of our notice. Points may only be redeemed in batches of 500 points. Unredeemed points will be forfeited after the end of the 60 day period.
If we change the Terms: If we amend the Terms and you are unhappy with our changes to the Terms, you can stop using the App from the date that the changes come into force:
By clicking to accept a change or by continuing to use the App after the date that the changes to the Terms take effect, you are agreeing to be legally bound by those changes.
