1.1. DUQUES DE BERGARA, S.L., with company address at Bergara 11, 08002 Barcelona and holder of fiscal identification number (NIF) B-58227877  (hereinafter, “Catalonia Rewards”), offers its users the opportunity to join the rewards and loyalty program of the hotel chain Catalonia Hotels & Resorts (hereinafter, “CHR”), through which members can enjoy excellent prices at CHR hotels and, at the same time, enjoy a unique CHR booking experience. 
1.2. This document regulates the terms and conditions of Catalonia Rewards membership (hereinafter, “Terms and Conditions of Membership”) and details the process for obtaining and redeeming Catalonia Rewards points (hereinafter, “Travel Cash”) by the registered users of Catalonia Rewards (hereinafter, the “Member” or “Members”), with the specific terms applicable to each kind of transaction available to them through www.cataloniahotels.com  (the “Website”). 
1.3. After completing the Catalonia Rewards’ registration form, the Member accepts having read and understood, and agrees to the content of the present Terms and Conditions of Membership and remains subject to them for the duration of their membership. The registration form is available on (i) the online channel of Catalonia Rewards (i.e. the Website), (ii) at the reception of the CHR hotels, and/or (iii) via any other support that Catalonia Rewards may make available for this purpose. 
1.4. Members can book at all the CHR hotels published on the Website (hereinafter, “hotel” or “hotels”) based on availability, and for the services and rates available at any given time, whose current and updated terms and conditions will be available for the Member on the Website. 

2. Registration

2.1. Natural persons of legal age and legal entities can be Members of Catalonia Rewards. 
2.2. Registration on the Programme is free of charge.  
2.3. Registration in the program and the corresponding application to open a Catalonia Rewards account (hereinafter, “Catalonia Rewards account” or “account”) in order to be able to enjoy the advantages associated with the club shall be processed by duly completing the form via the channels mentioned in clause 1.3. 
2.4. When a Member registers, she/he must provide Catalonia Rewards with the following personal data: (i) full name; (ii) country; (iii) contact email; and (iv) password. Furthermore, during her/his relationship with Catalonia Rewards and in engaging services through the platform the Member may be asked to provide other personal data from time to time. 
2.5. The Member warrants that the personal data submitted by her/him to Catalonia Rewards are accurate, true and up to date. In order to do so, the Member may modify the information in her/his profile at any time. 
2.6. Each Member may only have one active Catalonia Rewards Account. The Catalonia Rewards account is personal and non-transferable and identifies its Members with their data and amount of Travel Cash accumulated, thereby facilitating their membership in the program. The Member recognises that, for security reasons and in order to prevent fraudulent behaviour, the Catalonia Rewards Customer Service Centre may request, by telephone or e-mail, the documentation (e.g. a copy of a national identity card),information or confirmation necessary to verify the identity of the Member who, for instance, is requesting to make a booking, or modify or cancel a confirmed booking. This information will be stored in accordance with the security measures established by the relevant personal data protection legislation. 
2.7. If a legal entity holding a Catalonia Rewards Account makes a reservation on the website or through the direct channels established for this purpose, it will generate the corresponding Travel Cash that will be granted (i) to the natural person who has stayed in the room, provided that he/she is a member; (ii) to the natural person that Catalonia Rewards identifies as the main guest, provided that he/she is a member, in the event that there is more than one guest. For these purposes, and provided Catalonia Rewards does not establish a different criterion, the person identified as the main guest on the form provided to make the reservation will be considered the main guest. Catalonia Rewards is always responsible for the criteria for assigning the Travel Cash, and may modify it when the needs of the business so require, without this entailing the loss of the Travel Cash accumulated by the guest. Consequently, the legal entity holding a Catalonia Rewards Account will not be able to benefit from the advantages reserved for individuals. Thus, as they cannot stay overnight at the hotel as such, they will not be able to generate Travel Cash or accumulate nights, nor will they be able to upgrade their membership level. However, the legal entity will at all times have the Great level of the programme and will be able to benefit from the discounts reserved for members of the Catalonia Rewards Account when making reservations on the website. Under no circumstances shall Catalonia Rewards be liable for the relationship between the legal entity that holds the Account and the natural person who enjoys the corresponding overnight stay.
2.8. The advantages that may be associated with the Programme’s various levels of membership as defined in section 4 below are linked to the actual overnight stays that the Member had accumulated over a period of twelve (12) months from the date of registration for the Programme or that of an upgrade to a higher level. 

3. Personal área

3.1. When users register as Members, they will have access to their own private area (the “personal area”),provided that they correctly identify themselves as members by entering their access details.
