PRINTANIA LOYALTY PROGRAMME GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS
These General Terms and Conditions apply in all Printemps stores that are participating in the Printania programme as well as on the www.printempsfrance.com, www.printemps.com and www.placedestendances.com websites. The present General Terms and Conditions govern contractual relations between Printemps and its customers within the framework of the operation of the Printania loyalty programme.
The Printania programme is offered by Printemps, a French simplified limited company (S.A.S.) with a share capital of € 110 563 160, Paris Trade and Companies Register number 503 314 767, having its registered office in Paris (75009) at 102 Rue de Provence. Its purpose is to offer Printania loyalty programme members the benefits described below.
Printania cardholders are covered by the Printania loyalty programme (hereinafter "the programme") which may or may not be combined with a revolving credit card (see clause 10 hereof) that allows payments to be made in cash or on credit at the customer's express option, or upon receipt of a statement of account, by any natural person who is more than 18 years of age and is a resident of France or one of the following countries: Germany, Andorra, Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Croatia, Denmark, Spain, Estonia, Finland, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Monaco, The Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Czech Republic, Romania, United Kingdom, Slovakia, Slovenia, Sweden or Switzerland, or with banking domiciliation in France. It is understood that purchases must be made for the cardholder's own needs. The cardholder agrees not to resell any purchases to third parties, individuals or professionals.
These benefits cannot be combined with the benefits reserved for international customers such as the refund of VAT and the 10% discount offered with the Welcome card, or the benefits of the Printemps Listes card.
The programme is available in all Printemps stores with the exception of Printemps Brest, Caen and Tours, as well as on the www.printemps.com and www.placedestendances.com websites. Printania cardholders (hereinafter "the cardholders") may not use it with partner brands such as Citadium or the Places des Tendances website.
The loyalty card is issued free of charge at Printemps stores that are eligible for the loyalty programme or on the www.placedestendances.com and www.printemps.com websites. The loyalty card is strictly personal. It may not be sold, assigned or loaned.
The loyalty card bears a 16-digit number. It is used solely to link a number to a customer's purchases. The account includes all of the customer's loyalty details: his tier, points, money-off coupons, preferred brands, etc.
An account may be shared between the account holder and a joint account holder, each of whom has a loyalty card.
The account holder and the joint account holder share the programme's benefits and services on a single account (balance of TIER POINT(S) and SHOPPING POINT(s), tier, money-off coupons, three preferred brands, Printania Day(s), cap on services).
A loyalty account is assigned to the account holder: he may manage the loyalty account (change brands, activate services) and he receives account management reports.
Printemps reserves the right to cancel, replace or modify some or all of the programme at any time, as well as the benefits and services offered under the programme.
The cardholder agrees that the programme may be modified in whole or in part at any time and that it may not give rise to any claim or claim for damages of any kind whatsoever against Printemps. The up-to-date General Terms and Conditions of the Printania loyalty programme are available at any time on the printempsfrance.com website.
These General Terms and Conditions and any changes to them are deemed to have been approved by the cardholder as soon as the Printania card or a programme benefit or service is used.

3. PROGRAMME BENEFITS
3.1. Earning TIER POINTS
The Printania loyalty programme has four tiers that depend on the number of TIER-POINTS earned by the cardholder through his purchases in the store, provided that he uses his loyalty card, or on the www.printemps.com and www.placedestendances.com websites provided that a valid Printania card is linked to the customer account.
Each cardholder's tier is physically represented by a specific loyalty card. The information concerning the cardholder's tier appears in the cardholder's "My Space" on the www.printempsfrance.com and www.printemps.com websites and in the notices sent by Printemps. The cardholder can also obtain this information upon request by going directly to a Printemps store.
- The rules for calculating TIER POINTS are as follows:
- € 2 net spent = 1 TIER POINT earned (rounded up to the next Euro of the amount on the receipt or order). It is understood that purchases made in the following cases are not included: restaurant, use of services, Printemps Listes gift or purchase made with Printemps Listes card, gift card or cheque, use of a money-off coupon, or delivery costs.
- You can earn TIER POINTS in all Printemps stores that are eligible for the programme and on Level 7 of the Printemps du Goût area (excluding Crêperie Malo) as well as on the www.printemps.com and www.placedestendances.com websites.
In the case of a purchase on the www.printemps.com and www.placedestendances.com websites, provided that a valid Printania card was linked to the customer account prior to the purchase, the TIER POINTS for the amount of the purchase (excluding delivery costs) shall be credited thirty (30) days after the order is shipped on www.placedestendances.comand forty five (45) days on www.printemps.com.
In the case of a refund, the number of TIER POINTS for the refunded amount shall be deducted.
- Tiers are reached on the basis of the number of TIER POINTS earned:
- Silver Tier: between 0 and 499 TIER POINTS
- Ruby Tier: between 500 and 1 999 TIER POINTS
- Gold Tier: between 2 000 and 4 999 TIER POINTS
- Platinum Tier: starting at 5 000 TIER POINTS
When the maximum points for a tier are exceeded, the cardholder moves to the next tier starting the following day and will enjoy the benefits of that new tier the next time he pays at the till. He also keeps his balance of SHOPPING POINTS and earned money-off coupons, provided that they have not expired.
A specific message and a new card indicating the new tier are automatically sent to customers who applied for a physical card.
When TIER POINTS fall below the minimum threshold for a tier, the cardholder's tier is modified once a year on the anniversary date of his assignment to the most recent tier, based on the number of TIER POINTS awarded.
It should be noted that the cardholder's tier can be reduced by one or more levels.
The new tier is always shared with and inures to the benefit of both cardholders and joint cardholders. They each receive a new card for that tier.
TIER POINTS are valid for 12 months on a rolling basis.
3.2. Earning SHOPPING POINTS
Under the programme, the cardholder also earns SHOPPING POINTS for his purchases which may entitle him to money-off coupons.
The rules governing the calculation of SHOPPING POINTS are as follows:
- € 2 net spent = 1 SHOPPING POINT earned (rounded up to the next full Euro of the amount on the receipt or order). It is understood that purchases made in the following cases are not included: restaurant, use of services, Printemps Listes gift or purchase made with Printemps Listes card, gift card or cheque, use of a money-off coupon, or delivery costs.
- You can earn SHOPPING POINTS in all Printemps stores that are eligible for the programme and on Level 7 of the Printemps du Goût area (excluding Crêperie Malo) as well as on the www.printemps.com and www.placedestendances.com websites.
- In addition, the cardholder can earn SHOPPING POINTS faster in the following cases:
- Payments made using the Printania Plus card in the store either with cash or on credit, or on a cash basis on the www.placedestendances.com website (see clause 10 hereof for the terms and conditions of the Printania Plus card): double SHOPPING POINTS (€2 net spent = 2 SHOPPING POINTS)
- Items purchased in participating Printemps stores from among the three preferred brands chosen beforehand by the cardholder, either in "My Space" or at the till: double SHOPPING POINTS (€2 net spent = 2 SHOPPING POINTS)
- Purchases on www.printemps.com by a Printania Ruby cardholder: SHOPPING POINTS multiplied by 5 (€2 net spent = 5 SHOPPING POINTS earned), up to a maximum of 150 000 SHOPPING POINTS for this reward
- Purchases on www.printemps.com by a Printania Gold cardholder: SHOPPING POINTS multiplied by 8 (€2 net spent = 8 SHOPPING POINTS earned), up to a maximum of 300 000 SHOPPING POINTS for this reward
- Purchases on www.printemps.com by a Printania Platinum cardholder: SHOPPING POINTS multiplied by 10 (€2 net spent = 10 SHOPPING POINTS earned), up to a maximum of 300 000 SHOPPING POINTS for this reward.
In the case of a purchase on the www.printemps.com and www.placedestendances.comwebsites, provided that a valid Printania card was linked to the customer account prior to the purchase, the SHOPPING POINTS for the amount of the purchase (excluding delivery costs) shall be credited thirty (30) days after the order is shipped on www.placedestendances.comand forty five (45) days on www.printemps.com.
In the case of a refund, the number of SHOPPING POINTS for the refunded amount shall be deducted.
SHOPPING POINTS expire when the cardholder is inactive (no purchases made using the Printania card) for a period of eighteen (18) months from the date of the last purchase.
3.3. Use of SHOPPING POINTS
Although SHOPPING POINTS have no commercial value, they make it possible to earn money-off coupons faster. SHOPPING POINTS do not increase the number of points for the tier.
Once a cardholder reaches 1 000 SHOPPING POINTS, they are converted the following day into a money-off coupon worth € 10 that can be picked up at the till and is valid for six (6) months.
The points used to earn a money-off coupon are automatically deducted from the number of SHOPPING POINTS.
Money-off coupons may be used one time, and may be combined with one another, but may not be combined with other benefits such as customer loyalty operations, Printania Days and other exclusions determined by Printemps, depending on the event concerned.
It is understood that money-off coupons are not considered in the following cases: book shop, restaurant, use of services, Printemps Listes gift or purchase made with Printemps Listes card, purchase of a gift card, Louis Vuitton or Darty.
Money-off coupons can be used in all Printemps stores that are eligible for the programme (with the exception of the Place des Tendances and Printempsfrance.com websites and the Printemps Outlet in Miramas), on Level 7 of the Printemps du Goût area in Printemps Haussmann (excluding Crêperie Malo) as well as on www.printemps.com. Money-off coupons may not be exchanged for cash in whole or in part, and may not be assigned.
Money-off coupons may be used for up to 50% of the total value of the purchases made by the person using them. At Printemps Voyages, money-off coupons may be used for up to 10% of the total cost of a trip and up to € 200 may be paid with money-off coupons in a single case (ie, 20 money-off coupons worth a maximum of € 10), excluding processing costs, Printemps Listes payments, gift cards, airport taxes, insurance, flight-only airfare and train tickets. In the case of refunds, money-off coupons shall not be returned even in the case of a partial refund.

revolving line of credit, upon presentation of the voucher issued to the customer that same day.
This excludes red points, food, restaurant, book shop and services (payments by Printemps Listes
donors, Printemps Voyage and Printemps Gift Card). Offer valid in all Printemps stores except
Printemps Louvre, Caen, Brest, Tours, the Printemps Outlet in Miramas and Printemps du Goût. Cannot
be combined with other current discounts or promotions. Printemps reserves the right to withdraw
this offer at any time.
They are also entitled to a revolving line of credit whose general terms and conditions shall be provided to them when they sign their contract.
10.2. Payment terms
Printania Plus cardholders have the opportunity to pay in the store for their purchases with their card either in cash or on credit: in several monthly instalments (over a maximum of 36 or 60 months depending on the amount of the credit extended) or to pay in several instalments by relying on a financing offer (3, 5 or 10 instalments starting from € 150 of purchases) when they go to the till, or by contacting Sofinco the day after their purchase and right up to receipt of their account statement (closure date noted on the statement plus 10 days, ie, 28 May for statement dated 18 May).
If the cardholder prefers a repayable loan, he may contact Sofinco at 09 73 32 33 09 (there is no surcharge for this number). Printemps may expel the customer from the loyalty programme but cannot close his line of credit. The customer may then continue to use his card, but only for payment.
10.3. Renewal and cancellation
Printania Plus cards may be renewed in the store at the Printemps Customer Service desk (l'Espace
Printemps Services) upon presentation of a valid ID.
Accounts may only be closed in accordance with Sofinco's terms and conditions. The request must be made in the store at the Printemps Customer Service desk (l'Espace Printemps Services) or by letter posted to Sofinco at the following address: SOFINCO, VEPEX 5 000, 59072 ROUBAIX CEDEX.
Printania Plus cards are valid for three (3) years provided that the account is sufficiently active (refer to the specific conditions relating to this kind of card).
The Printemps Group shall under no circumstances be liable for any damage or loss arising out of the use of the Printania Plus card, regardless of the source of the damage or loss.
These General Terms and Conditions cancel and supersede all prior documents.
