General conditions

What is the elkar card?
The elkar card is managed by the company Euskal Kulturgintza, S.A. as a system to reward customers for their loyalty. Participation and development are governed by the conditions detailed below. The members in the elkar card programme are the card Holders. Elkar card holders can access a broad range of products connected with the fields of culture and leisure as an added advantage given by the card. Additionally, they will be awarded points for every purchase at any bookshop in the elkar network, and offered exclusive promotions, direct discounts and special prices.

Participation in the elkar card Programme.
Registration for the elkar card programme is open to any private individual who has accepted the following General Conditions. If the person taking part was under 18 years of age, a legal representative should sign the registration form. The elkar card entitles the holder to take part in any of the activities and offers within the programme, following the conditions given in each case. In case of a lost card, the holder undertakes to inform the issuer in order to avoid dishonest use of the card and to arrange for a duplicate copy. The card has no expiry date.

Access to discounts and special promotions.
The holder will be awarded points for purchases made at any elkar group shop and according to the conditions applicable at the time. The points will be obtained at the moment the purchase is paid for, as the card is presented at any of the bookshops in the elkar network. Elkar card holders can benefit from both the direct discounts and the special prices advertised on our regular channels, purchasing the goods in the same way as for the awarding of points. Advantages provided through different campaigns cannot be cummulative. Under no circumstances can points be transferable or negotiable.

Advantages of the elkar card.
The holder can redeem at the elkar bookshop network the points rewarded by purchases made. 10 poins amount to a discount of 1?�. Card holders are granted a 5% direct discount on books (the maximum the law allows), except for textbooks which are exempted from these conditions. 10% off music in Basque, as well as benefitting from exclusive offers and special prices. Points awarded cannot be redeemed for cash, and redemption should therefore take place through a purchase where the value is at least equivalent in euros to the allotted points. The usual given periods will apply if goods were returned, which will be accepted never as a cash refund but as a voucher given totalling the amount to be returned and on presenting the receipt for the original purchase.

Communication channels.
The holder will regularly be forwarded a statement with the points allotted to his or her acccount, with details on the relevant purchases. Possible irregularities or errors on the statement you receive should be reported within a maximum period of 6 months calculated from the date when the statement was issued.
