Gift voucher(s) (“Gift Voucher(s)”) are alphanumeric gift codes presented by a customer on a customer’s mobile device to a server or cashier at a Merchant. Gift Vouchers may be for a specific dollar amount or for one or more specific item(s).
As part of the ItsOnMe Service, users may purchase Gift Voucher(s) for use as payment at specific Merchants.

Attempts to use a Voucher at Merchants not listed will be declined. Your Gift Voucher is not intended for online use and online redemption is not available. You do not have the right to stop payment on any purchase transaction originated by use your Gift Voucher. If there is an issue with your gift, contact firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance. Stopping payment on a gift may result in permanent revocation of your rights to use the Services, termination of the gift without warning to the gift recipient, and in some cases we may dispute a chargeback or initiate legal action. Your Gift Voucher cannot be used to obtain cash (unless as specified by applicable law) or to conduct illegal transactions. For security reasons, we may limit the amount or number of transactions you can make on your Gift Voucher and we may refuse to process any transaction we believe may violate these Terms.

For Gift Vouchers purchased by you or sent to you by another end user, the Company facilitates the purchase, delivery and redemption of Gift Vouchers, and retains a fee for that service.
