1.5 Intellectual Property

All information, photographs and text that is posted or transmitted to the LivCity Applications by Users (“User Content”) is the sole responsibility of such Users.  This means that the User, and not LivCity is responsible for all User Content made available on the LivCity Applications.  LivCity may monitor User Content from time to time but LivCity does not guarantee the accuracy, integrity or quality of such content.  Under no circumstances will LivCity be liable in any way for any User Content including any loss or damage incurred as a result of the viewing or use of such material made available on the LivCity Applications.  To the extent that User Content contains any personally identifiable information, that data is handled in accordance with the LivCity Privacy Policy.

By submitting, posting or displaying User Content on or through the LivCity Applications, You grant LivCity a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free, perpetual, transferable and fully sublicensable right to use, refrain from using or modify User Content.  You represent and warrant that You have all the rights, power and authority necessary to grant the rights granted herein to any User Content that You submit.  

The LivCity Applications and all content contained therein is owned or licensed by LivCity and protected by copyright, trade-mark and other intellectual property laws.  LivCity expressly reserves all right in the LivCity Applications and all materials provided by LivCity in connection with these Terms of Service that are not specifically granted to You. 

You may only use content found on the LivCity Applications for the applicable permitted uses described in Section 1.3.  If You access another User’s Personal Information through or in connection with the LivCity Applications or LivCity’s social media advertising, You agree that You will treat such Personal Information in accordance with LivCity’s current Privacy Policy and You will not collect or harvest any Personal Information.

2 GIFT CARDS

You may purchase LivCity gift cards through Your account with Apple Pay or Google Pay.  Each purchase will result in a separate gift card that is stored in electronic form and linked to a unique gift card id.  LivCity charges a one-time $0.35 activation fee for every gift card that You purchase.  You can view the combined credit of all Your gift cards in the “Account“ tab of Your LivCity Application.  The receipt for each gift card can be found in the “Settings“ tab of Your LivCity Application by tapping “Gift Cards”.  Contact information and gift card support can also be found in the “Settings“ tab or by emailing support@livcity.ca.

LivCity gift cards are redeemable at all Venues listed on the LivCity Applications.  LivCity gift cards do not expire or decrease in value if unused.  LivCity gift cards cannot be resold, reloaded or transferred to another User.  LivCity gift cards are nonrefundable and their dollar value may not be redeemed for cash.  Gift cards may be used as partial payment at any Venue.  To use a gift card as partial payment You must (1) create an order for a dollar value greater than the remaining credit balance in Your account at the Venue where You wish to make the partial payment, (2) confirm Your order and enter Your pin, (3) click the “receive a credit” button on the insufficient funds alert, and (4) confirm Your order.  A green screen receipt with the credit balance will represent that the transaction was successful.  You will then need to place an order at the Venue outside of the LivCity Application and show Your credit receipt.  The Venue will not give You cash back so You will need to provide another form of payment for any cost that exceeds the credit.

The risk of loss and title for gift cards pass to You upon our electronic transmission of the gift card to You.  LivCity is not responsible if any gift card is lost, stolen, destroyed or used without Your permission, or if You lose access to Your account.  LivCity reserves the right to void the gift card if LivCity suspects that the gift card was obtained or used fraudulently, unlawfully or otherwise in violation of these Terms of Service.

To the extent permitted by law, we reserve the right, at any time and in our sole discretion, to add to or amend terms and conditions (including these Terms of Service) in relation to the use of gift cards. LivCity also reserves the right to restrict the use of Gift Cards to comply with applicable law. 

2.1 Gift Card Payment Processing

Gift card payment processing services for the LivCity Applications are provided by payment service providers as LivCity may choose from time to time (collectively referred to as the “Payment Processing Services Provider”).  You hereby authorize the LivCity Application to send an encrypted Apple Pay or Google Pay token to the Payment Processing Services Provider which may contain financial information, banking details and transaction information related to Your use of the payment processing services and the LivCity Application.  You also agree that the LivCity is not responsible for the use or misuse of such financial information, banking details and transaction information by the Payment Processing Services Provider or any third party.  LivCity will not store Your financial information, banking details or card information. 

3 ORDERS

You may place orders for goods from Venues through the LivCity Application.  LivCity provides associated services like payment processing and access to the LivCity Applications.  LivCity does not prepare or fulfil any orders for goods and LivCity will not be liable for any transactions between Users.  Menus and other Venue-related information on the LivCity Application is content provided by the Venue and not LivCity.

3.1 Access and Placing Orders

You may access the ordering services by creating a User Account and purchasing LivCity gift cards.  Once You have an account, You may select goods from a Venue’s menu, choose Your desired quantity and options, and then add them to Your bill.  Your bill can be edited at any time prior to placing an order.  Once You have made Your selection, You may proceed to place an order.  At this time, You will have the opportunity to review Your bill.  After You have reviewed and confirmed the items on Your bill, You will be prompted to enter Your PIN number.  Upon verification of Your PIN, You will receive a green screen receipt and Your order will be created and sent to the Venue.  Once You have placed Your order, You will not be entitled to change or cancel Your order and You will not be entitled to a refund (except where required by law).  Notwithstanding that You have no right to change or cancel Your order (except where required by law), You may contact the Venue directly and request a change or cancellation. 

We encourage Venues to communicate any inability or unwillingness to fulfil order promptly.  If a Venue is unable to fulfill Your order, You will receive a rejected order notification and You will be refunded for the full amount the order. You agree that LivCity or the Venue will have no liability to You for orders that are rejected.

3.2 Claiming Orders

To claim an order at a Venue, You must present Your green screen receipt to the Venue.  To view Your current green screen receipts, navigate to the “Account” tab at the bottom of the LivCity Application and select the “Bill” button.  Alternatively, You can see any outstanding orders at a particular Venue by tapping the “Bill” button at the top of the Venue page. 

The process of claiming orders may differ from Venue to Venue. If the Venue offers a server service then Your Order will be delivered to the table or location where You checked in when You placed the order.  If the Venue has a pick-up service then You will be notified by a push notification when Your order is ready.  You must then go to the designated pick-up area and claim Your order.  If the Venue offers a pick and go service then You may enter Your order and collect the items Yourself.  Note that You must have a valid green screen receipt before You leave a Venue’s premises if You are using the pick and go service.  If You leave a Venue’s premise before receiving a green screen this is stealing and You are liable to be reprimanded to the fullest extent of the law.  Venues have the right to ask for Your green screen receipt to verify Your order at any time. 

It is Your responsibility to ensure that You claim Your orders.  Failure to pick up a completed order in a reasonable period of time is not a valid reason for a refund.  If You are unsure the status of Your order, You should inquire directly with the Venue.

3.3 Alcohol

If You order alcohol, You warrant that You are of legal age to purchase and consume alcohol in the jurisdiction where the alcohol is served and You are not ordering alcohol for any person below the legal age in the applicable jurisdiction.  You acknowledge and agree that Venues may require valid government-issued photo identification(s) from You and have the right to withhold alcohol products at their discretion.  Any refund for alcohol withheld by a Venue will be based on the discretion of the Venue or LivCity. 

3.4 Goods Contract

The legal contract for the purchase of goods will in all cases be between the User and the Venue.  You irrevocably appoint and authorize LivCity to act as Your sole and exclusive agent for the purpose of concluding contracts for the sale of goods between You and the Venue by means of You placing orders via the LivCity Application.  LivCity may act as agent for the User and Venue for the legal contract for the purchase and sale of the goods.  YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT LIVCITY HAS NO CONTROL OVER THE QUALITY OF THE GOODS OR SERVICES OFFERED BY VENUES AND THAT LIVCITY WILL HAVE NO LIABILITY TO YOU FOR ANY PROBLEMS CAUSED BY THE VENUE CONCERNING YOUR ORDERS, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, MISSED ITEMS AND ANY PROBLEMS WITH RESPECT TO THE QUALITY OF THE GOODS INCLUDING IF THE GOODS CAUSE ILLNESS, ALLEGIC REACTIONS OR HAVE INCORRECT NUTRITIONAL VALUES.

3.5 Complaints and Refunds

The best way to resolve an issue is directly with the Venue at the time the issue arises.  Venues have the capability to provide refunds through the LivCity Applications but are not required to do so.  Any refunds will be in the Venues discretion.  If You have a right to a refund by law and the Venue does not issue a refund then You should email LivCity a detailed description of the issue at support@livcity.ca.

3.6 Allergies and Dietary Preferences

The LivCity application provides Users the opportunity to enter allergy information or dietary preferences into a setting on their account.  If a Venue has attached a corresponding allergy or dietary preference to a menu item, LivCity will alert You by coloring the text of item yellow, in the case of an allergy, and green, in the case of a dietary preference.  This functionality is supposed to assist You in identifying which menu items to select or avoid but it is not to be relied on exclusively.  Your preferences are not sent to the Venue so You should always notify a Venue of Your allergies and confirm any dietary preferences.  Venues are responsible for providing menu information and ensuring that it is factually accurate and up-to-date, and LivCity does not undertake any such responsibility.  You acknowledge and agree that menu item information is the responsibility of Venues and LivCity has no control over the quality of the goods delivered.

4 COUPONS

Venues may create custom coupons for their stores.  Users with an account may claim these coupons. Coupons may only be applied towards orders on the LivCity Application.  There is a limit of one coupon per order.  The LivCity Application will calculate the highest value coupon that is applicable to each selection You make and ask You whether You would like to add the Coupon to Your order.

Coupons can apply to specific menu items or orders generally (“Qualifying Items”), if You do not purchase the Qualifying Items the discount will not apply.  Coupons may have a specific dollar amount or may provide a percentage-based discount. All coupons have an expiry date and some coupons may have other additional terms like time restrictions on when the coupon can be used.  To view the particular additional terms of each coupon, navigate to the “Account” tab and click the “Coupon” button, then You can tap on an individual coupon to see the additional terms (including the Venue it is redeemable at by clicking the “Venue” button in the terms alert).  Coupon offers are good while supplies last.  Coupons may not be transferred, assigned, copied, reproduced, exchanged or refunded for cash.  If You return any of the items purchased with a coupon, the coupon discount or value may be subtracted from the return credit. 

To add a coupon to Your order, You must select the appropriate Qualifying Items.  For example, if You have a buy four get one free coupon, You must add four items to Your bill.  If You have a coupon that applies to Your whole order then You will be asked to add it when You click checkout.

If You unsubscribed from a Venue, You will be removed from that Venue’s loyalty programs and You will forfeit all coupons associated with that program.  LivCity is not responsible if any coupon is lost, stolen, destroyed or used without your permission, or if You lose access to Your account.
