Only one (1) account and one (1) card per customer is  allowed.

The membership is not transferable.

5. Creating an account

When registering online at renaissancequebec.datacandyinfo.com, an account is automatically created and the customer will receive a virtual Trésors card. If he or she wants to receive a physical card, the customer may ask for it in the store and then register online at renaissancequebec.datacandyinfo.com. The physical card can be requested in all Renaissance stores, except the Liquidation Centre, the Pierrefonds Bookstore, the Chambly-Rémillard Bookstore and the Rivière-des-Prairies Bookstore.

6. Trésors cards

The card is the property of Renaissance and can be revoked at any time. Points accumulated on the card can only be used by its primary holder. The primary holder is the only person who can ask Renaissance to deactivate a card and/or to close an account. Sharing or transferring points between two (2) Privilege members is impossible, even if the account is being closed. Also, the member cannot sell, buy or transfer points to anyone, regardless of the circumstances, even in the event of a death.

7. Earning points

The member can earn points when making purchases at authorized Renaissance outlets at a rate of one (1) point per dollar spent. Taxes (GST and QST) do not count as dollars spent that can earn points. Points have no cash value and are not redeemable. To earn points, members must always identify themselves as a member before the end of each transaction made. Purchases made with a gift card do not generate points. Renaissance reserves the right to add or exclude products eligible for the issuance of points and to define the promotional offers for which points may be awarded.

8. Terms for using points

A member can use points to make purchases at authorized sales outlets. If the member wishes to use points as a method of payment, he or she must have, at the time of the transaction, a minimum of 150 points accumulated in his or her account. Renaissance can change at any time the value and the minimum number of points required. The points that the member accumulates when making a purchase can only be used when they are duly issued to his or her account and only at the time of a subsequent transaction. The member can only use points once per transaction. When making a transaction, the member may not use more points than the purchase price of the transaction. The issuance and use of points could be suspended in the event of a breakdown or if the systems required for the management of points are not available and in other fortuitous situations or force majeure, at the complete indemnity of Renaissance.

9. Return and exchange of eligible goods and services

To request a point adjustment, in case of return and exchange of products, the customer must have in his or her possession a membership card, the original receipt and the price tag on the item or the colour fastener attached to the garment. In the event of an exchange, Renaissance will be able to make adjustments to the points representing the difference between the products originally purchased and those that will be taken in exchange.

10. Other points provisions

If there is a receipt error, the member must notify Renaissance by email at marketing@renaissancequebec.ca. In the event of a request for adjustment/correction of points, the member will have to provide evidence justifying the claim. If the member disagrees on the number of points accumulated, used or deducted from the account, the data in the Renaissance files will prevail. Renaissance assumes no responsibility for any errors in the balance of points displayed on the receipt, in the member’s account and/or in a communication sent to the member. Renaissance can deduct points mistakenly credited to a member’s account at any time without prior notice.

11. Lost card, stolen card and others

In the event that a member loses or has his Privilege card stolen, it is the member’s responsibility to notify Renaissance immediately. Once notified, Renaissance will deactivate this card and activate a new one that will be issued to the member. If the password of his account is lost, it is the member’s responsibility to immediately request a new password on renaissancequebec.datacandyinfo.com. Renaissance is not responsible for any transactions that occurs between the time when a card or password is stolen and the time Renaissance is notified.

12. Member’s obligations to update his or her file

13. Request for voluntary withdrawal from the program

Consequently, the member’s Privilege account will be immediately closed, access will be revoked and the card will be cancelled. Customers wishing to enroll again after closing an account will no longer be able to recover previously accumulated points or account content.

14. Closing an inactive Privilege account

An account inactive for one (1) year will result in the closure of the account, the revocation of access and the cancellation of accumulated points. The member will then be informed 30 to 60 days before the decision takes effect. To maintain active status and program enrollment, the member must accumulate or use points at least once a year or be active in program activities.

15. Program sweepstakes

Sweepstakes may be organized as part of the Privilege program. Different eligibility criteria may apply to these sweepstakes (purchases required, place of residence, etc.). Renaissance employees and the persons with whom they live are not eligible for these sweepstakes.

16. End of program

The program may end as a result of a Renaissance decision or due to a force majeure situation. As a result, the program may be suspended or abolished and accumulated points may be canceled with a 60 to 90-day notice period before the modification comes into effect. In such cases, Renaissance will not have any responsibilities to its members.

17. Renaissance’s rights in case of non-compliance

Renaissance may at any time suspend and revoke a member’s enrollment, cancel a member’s account and take back the card associated to this account, cancel the member’s accumulated points if he or she has not complied with the rules in force. In the event of a revocation, the points will be cancelled when the account closes and the member will no longer be able to apply for a new enrollment. In the event of a voluntary closure by the member, the member may apply for a new enrollment at a later date. No points will be awarded if Renaissance  suspects purchases for resale or commercial use. The member who has violated these rules agrees to reimburse to Renaissance all points used and/or the equivalent value and to compensate Renaissance and any third party.
