Monies and Loyalty Stars

Pixie allows you to load a monetary value on to your Pixie Account for future purchases at independent businesses that are part of the Pixie scheme and that we have a contract with. We do not collect or store any payment details from you.  This is carried out by Stripe Limited, our payment processor. Please see Stripe Limited’s terms and conditions for further details. Pixie Pay Ltd holds any money loaded onto user accounts before transfer to merchants in a bank account which is separate and segregated from the assets of Pixie Ltd.  This means that at all times the funds are protected and will be available for return to users. Bonus stars have no monetary value until they are used to make a purchase in a participating Pixie independent business.  

The value of your account is subject to the following limits:  The maximum value of your account at any one time must not exceed £150 and the maximum amount loaded into your account must not exceed £200 in any consecutive 30 day period.  There is a limit of £100 on any single amount loaded. These limits may vary at any time in accordance with the current Anti Money Laundering Regulations. 

Pixie has the right to request Enhanced Due Diligence checks on any user that reaches the transaction limits as defined by Anti-Money Laundering Regulations  Pixie has the right to freeze an account until these checks have been carried out and the relevant E-money regulations have been satisfied.

Pixie has the right to remove promotional Stars or monetary values added to an account by Pixie if the promotional value has not been redeemed in a participating Pixie Business within 18 months of issue.

Pixie may set a limit on the number of times stars may be awarded for promotional items on which additional points are available. Individual promotions may have different limits as communicated in their purchase conditions. Any participation in promotional offers above and beyond what could objectively be considered consumer behaviour or personal use may be considered as abuse of the scheme.

Pixie is entitled to remove Stars at any time if products are returned for any reason and a full or partial refund of the purchase price is given. This also applies to the exchange of products, unless the exchange is for products with an equivalent Stars value.

Stars awarded at the time of the transaction may be removed or cancelled if Pixie determines that the points were collected in breach of these terms and conditions or were awarded in error. For the avoidance of doubt, any advice or actions of our staff that is contrary to these terms and conditions will not have the effect of changing these terms and conditions.

Refunds

Amounts loaded onto your Pixie account may be redeemed by emailing support@pixieapp.co.  You may be asked to provide proper documentation as proof of your identity, such as your address, a driver’s licence, passport etc and your bank account details.   A refund will be made within 20 business days directly into your bank account.  This may vary however, up to a maximum of 30 business days.  Bonus stars that are redeemed have no monetary value except for at the point of purchase in a Pixie Merchant.  Any refund to a user will be less any unspent bonus stars.
