1. MEMBERSHIP ELIGIBILITY AND OVERVIEW

1.1. The M·A·C LOVER HK Loyalty Program (“Program”) is offered at the sole discretion of M·A·C Hong Kong operated by Estee Lauder (Hong Kong) Limited and Estee Lauder (Macau) Limited (“M·A·C Hong Kong,” “we,” “our” or “us”).

The Program may not be used for any business or commercial purpose.

1.2. By joining the Program and becoming a Program member, you ( “you,” “your,” or “Member”), agree that you have read, understood and agree to be bound by these Program Terms and Conditions of Participation (“Terms”) and by any changes or modifications we may make. You should review these Terms and the related policies and FAQS frequently to understand the terms and conditions that apply to the Program as they may change from time to time. These Terms do not alter in any way the terms or conditions of any other agreement you may have with us, including any agreement for products or services. By enrolling in the Program, you also agree to be bound by our website PRIVACY POLICY and our website TERMS AND CONDITIONS, which are incorporated herein by reference. If you do not agree to these Terms, our website PRIVACY POLICY, and our website TERMS AND CONDITIONS, you cannot participate in the Program. The Program is void where prohibited by law.

1.3. The M·A·C LOVER HK Program is only available in M·A·C Hong Kong owned and operated stores and counters in Hong Kong and Macau (excluding at Sephora, Duty Free and airport locations) and on maccosmetics.com.hk within Hong Kong or Macau.

2. PROGRAM ENROLLMENT

2.1. Eligible individuals may enroll in the Program through one of the following options:

2.1.1. Visit https://www.maccosmetics.com.hk/account/mac-lover.tmpl (collectively, the “Site”) and follow the Program prompts to register for the Program.

Visit any Store and tell a store associate you would like to register for the Program.

2.2. You are required to provide your full name and email address in order to enroll. If you enroll at the Site, you must also create a password in order to enroll and agree to the M·A·C LOVER HK Terms and Conditions. If you are enrolling at the Site, you understand that your personal data is being collected on an open network, which may not have sufficient security measures. In order to access your birthday offers, you will need to provide us with your birthday (day and month), but providing your birthday is not mandatory for Program enrollment. You will also have the opportunity to provide us with your mobile phone number and mailing address, but this information is optional. You are solely responsible for maintaining the accuracy of your account information and for updating it as required. You may update your personal information on the Site.

2.3. Only one Program account may be associated with a single member, a single mobile phone number and a single email address. In the event of a dispute over the identity of the member enrolled in the Program, the member will be deemed to be the authorized account holder of the email address submitted at the time of enrollment. For purposes of these Terms, the "authorized account holder" is the natural person who is assigned to the submitted email address or mobile phone number by an internet provider, online service provider, or other organization (e.g., business, educational institution, etc.) that is responsible for assigning email addresses for the domain associated with the submitted email address or mobile phone number.

3. HOW THE PROGRAM WORKS AND PROGRAM BENEFITS

3.1. The Program is a way in which we reward and thank our loyal customers for purchasing our products and/or taking other Program related actions. You are able to earn points and also unlock Program loyalty tiers by making eligible purchases or taking certain other Program actions. You will receive 1 point for every 1 HK Dollar spent on qualifying purchases in any Store or at maccosmetics.com.hk and in addition to these purchases, we may offer more ways to earn and/or accelerate your points from time to time. Eligible purchases and other opportunities to unlock Program loyalty tiers will be posted on the Site or may be published through other media (e.g., in-store, in" marketing emails, social media, etc.). Once you have accumulated points and/or unlock a certain loyalty tier, you may be eligible for certain benefits and rewards applicable to that tier and/or based on the total number of points you have accumulated in an anniversary year, which benefits may change from time to time and may be offered on a limited basis. Visit our FAQS for a current list of available benefits.

3.2. The M·A·C LOVER HK Program is a tier-based program determined by the qualifying spend on eligible purchases and through qualifying activities, beginning on the date when you enroll. There are 3 tiers with associated benefits:

• Tier 1 0 – HK$999
• Tier 2, Devoted HK$1,000 – $1,999
• Tier 3, Obsessed HK$2,000

When you join, you’ll automatically be placed in Tier 1, Lover and be eligible for all the benefits Tier 1 members receive. Once you spend at least HK$1,000 on eligible purchases in your first year, you’ll be automatically moved up to Tier 2, Devoted. When you spend HK$2,000 or more on eligible purchases in your first year, you’ll be qualified for Tier 3, Obsessed.

Your status in a particular tier is good for the remainder of the year in which you qualify for that tier and the following full year. After that, you’ll need to spend enough to qualify for that tier on yearly basis subsequently. For example, if you qualify for Tier 2, Devoted, during your first year, you’ll maintain Devoted status during your second year. But, if you spend less than HK$1,000 on eligible purchases during your second year, you’ll drop back down to Tier 1, Lover status on your second anniversary date.

3.3. For your eligible purchase to qualify for the Program, you must be enrolled in the Program and you must provide your Program member identification at the time of purchase by logging into your account on the Site or by providing your mobile phone number or your registered email address in any Stores . To earn rewards and benefits, your purchase must be made on qualifying products and services. Eligible purchases include regular priced merchandise and services, and exclude gift cards, discounts, shipping charges, delivery charges and other excluded charges and/or purchases as specified by us from time-to-time, including, but not limited to, charitable products where funds are donated to M·A·C Viva Glam Fund or any other charitable organization, value sets, select premium products and services, and other specified products.

3.4. Neither accounts nor rewards may be shared or combined. Only the member paying for the products may accumulate benefits and rewards. We reserve the right to monitor the number of accounts per household and refuse, merge or close additional or duplicate accounts at any time.

3.5. Benefits and rewards earned through the Program have no cash value, are non-transferable, and you have no property rights in or to rewards or other Program benefits. Purchase balances credited to your Program account will reversed if the purchase is returned, or if the balance is obtained through fraudulent or other activity that violates these Terms as determined by us in our sole discretion. We are not responsible for rewards lost or redeemed due to fraudulent activity by you or any third party. We are not responsible for rewards that are lost, stolen or otherwise destroyed. The sale, barter, transfer, or assignment of any rewards or benefits offered through the Program, other than by us, is expressly prohibited. Any applicable tax liabilities resulting from rewards earned under the Program are the responsibility of the member.

3.6. We reserve the right to change Program benefits, how you unlock each Program tier and how we evaluate and reward your eligible purchases and/or other Program activity. We reserve the right to place limits on the number of purchases or activities that are eligible for the Program and/or for any given tier, the number or types of rewards or benefits you may receive or earn in any given tier, in a given time period or for the duration of the Program, and/or any combination thereof.

3.7. If you have concerns that a purchase or other activity was not properly applied to your account, you should contact M·A·C Hong Kong Customer Service at cs@maccosmetics.com.hk. Your email must specify your name, address, mobile phone number, and email address associated with the Program, the date of the Program activity, and the issue(s) you encountered. This email must be sent no more than forty-five (45) days after the date the purchase or other Program activity took place. We are not responsible for late notifications about purchases or other Program activities not being credited to an account.

3.8. Rewards can only be redeemed in any Stores , and/or on the Site, depending on the reward. Purchases made in department stores, specialty stores, stores and counters not solely owned and operated by M·A·C Hong Kong and outside of Hong Kong or Macau are not eligible for the Program.
