PART A – SUMMARY OF TERMS
The Barclays Premier Rewards app (the “PR app”) provides loyalty based services and promotions to eligible Barclays Premier customers resident in the United Kingdom.
The PR app currently only works on compatible Smartphones running Android 4.0 and above and iOS 6.0 and above. We may change the version of the operating system the PR app works with at any time. Some features may not be available on all platforms or operating systems, visit our website for more information.
You must not download the app from anywhere other than a store approved by us, or install or use it on a jail-broken or rooted device. If we allow you to upload images or other content to the app, you must not upload or store inappropriate or illegal images or content. If you use functionality in the app which accesses information on your device to work (for example to upload content), you consent to the app accessing your device and information.
Sometimes we may allow or engage third parties to provide you with access to their services and promotions through the PR app. We are not responsible for providing these to you and you may be required to accept applicable terms and conditions provided by the third party. If these services or promotions are withdrawn, we may find alternatives where reasonably possible.
You may be charged by your service provider for internet access on your Smartphone.
