All Rookie promotions and offers are for a limited time only and while stocks last. Skye reserves the right to terminate, suspend or modify the promotion or offer without notice.

 

Promotional vouchers

Promotional vouchers may be issued electronically in Skye’s sole discretion.  Users do not have a right to promotional vouchers, and promotional vouchers cannot be earned. Promotional vouchers are issued under specific terms and conditions regulating when and how they may be used. Promotional vouchers are issued for limited validity time periods. Promotional vouchers can be used to secure a discount on the Website, provided that the promotional voucher is valid and has not expired.

Some promotional vouchers may be subject to a minimum spend requirement or other conditions, as communicated in the information accompanying the promotional voucher. 

To utilise a promotional voucher and claim the applicable discount in respect thereof, you must insert the relevant discount code into the promotional voucher code box provided at check out.

Returns will be refunded at the actual rand value paid per item after the respective promotional voucher discount is applied.

Promotional voucher codes are not valid on any discounted items and promotional voucher codes may not be used in conjunction with any other offers on the Website.

Promotional vouchers cannot be exchanged for cash and the full value must be utilised.

Gift cards

Skye may from time to time make electronic gift cards available for use on the Website towards the purchase of Rookie products. Gift cards can only be redeemed while they are valid and an expiry date cannot be extended.

Gift cards cannot be:

  • used to purchase other gift cards or  promotional vouchers;
  • exchanged for cash; or
  • transferred to any other person.

A gift voucher cannot be used to purchase a cart that is of higher value than the voucher.  If the cart is of lower value than the voucher, the residual amount will be a balance on the voucher.

Skye shall not be held liable for the loss, theft or illegibility of gift vouchers, and gift vouchers will not be replaced.

 

4.3 Severability

 

If any provision in these Terms of Use is held invalid, the remainder of these Terms of Use shall continue to be enforceable. If any provision in these Terms of Use is deemed unlawful, void or unenforceable, then that provision is deemed severable from these Terms of Use and the remaining provisions are still valid and enforceable.

 

4.4 Written communications and notices

 

Communication between Skye and the “user/buyer” will be electronically as such via email.  Applicable laws may require that some of the information or communications Skye send to you “the user/buyer” should be in writing, for which purpose we both agree that electronic communications will suffice.  This paragraph does not affect your rights.

All notices given by you must be given in writing and delivered by email.  Notices to you may be given to the email address or the invoice address provided when you placed your order.

 

4.5 Events outside our control

 

Neither of us shall be liable to the other for any delay or non-performance of its respective obligations under the Terms of Use to the extent that performance is interrupted or prevented by any act or omission beyond its reasonable control.  This paragraph does not affect your rights and in particular Skye’s obligation to perform the Contract within 30 days of order.

Such delay or non-performance will not be a breach of the Contract and the time for performance will be extended by the period during which performance is prevented.

 

4.6 Variations

Skye or its licensors may change these Terms of Use at any time without notice, effective upon its posting to the Website. You agree to review these Terms of Use regularly to make yourself aware of any changes. Your continued use of the Website shall be considered your acceptance to the revised Terms of Use. If you do not agree to these Terms of Use, please do not use this website.

In relation to Products, you will be subject to the policies and terms in force at the time that you order Products from us, unless any change to those policies or these terms is required to be made by law or governmental authority (in which case it will apply to orders previously placed by you), or if Skye notifies you of the change to those policies or these terms before Skye sends you the order confirmation (in which case Skye has the right to assume that you have accepted the change to the terms, unless you notify us to the contrary within  7 working days of receipt by you of the Products).

 

4.7 Waiver

 

If either of us does not insist upon strict performance of any of the other’s obligations under the Contract or any of these terms, or if either of us does not exercise any of the rights or remedies to which Skye is entitled under the Contract, this shall not constitute a waiver of such rights or remedies and shall not relieve the other of us from compliance.
