Access to the App is permitted on a temporary basis. Our app is constantly evolving and, for technical, commercial or legal reasons, we may suspend, withdraw, discontinue or change all or any part of the App without notice. If such change materially alters your use of the App, you will be informed of such change. We will not be liable to you if for any reason the App is unavailable at any time or for any period. We may update the App and/or change the content on it at any time.
3.2 You are responsible for making all arrangements necessary for you to have access to the App. You are also responsible for ensuring that all persons who access the App through your internet connection are aware of this EULA and that they comply with them.
3.3 The App and the content on it are provided for general information purposes only. They are not intended to amount to advice on which you should rely.
3.4 The Services and the App are only intended for persons aged 18 and over. If you are under the age of 18, then you must immediately cease to use the App.
3.5 You may only use the App for your own domestic, private and non-commercial use.

4.4 You are responsible for any unauthorised use of your Account login details.
5. Returning the Vessels and Loop Totes
5.1 You pay for a deposit fee for each Vessel (and Loop Tote if applicable) you purchase at Participating Stores ("Deposit Fee"). An amount equal to the Deposit Fee for particular products purchased will be refundable to you when you return the Vessel and any Loop Tote(s) related to those products to us via a Loop Return Point using the App, unless otherwise specified and communicated to you. The App allows you to return your Vessels and/or Loop Tote(s) to a Loop Return Point in accordance with clauses 5.2 to 5.6 (inclusive) below.
5.2 If you are returning a Vessel without the Loop Tote, please ensure that it has been properly sealed.
5.3 If you are returning the Vessels into the Loop Tote(s) supplied with your Order, please ensure that all Vessels have been packaged carefully in the Loop Tote(s) and that any Loop Totes you wish to return are securely sealed.
5.4 You could be responsible for any damages caused by or to Vessels not packaged carefully and by or to Loop Totes not securely sealed
5.5 You can use the App to locate your nearest Loop Return Point. If you have enabled location services, the App will show you the Loop Return Points which are closest to your current location.
5.6 You will need to use the App to scan the QR code on the Vessel or Loop Tote you wish to return before placing it in the Loop Return Point. This lets us know that you're returning the Vessels and Loop Tote and when to expect them. If the Vessel you want to return has a QR code, you'll need to use the App to scan the QR code. If the Vessel you want to return doesn't have a QR code, you might be able to create an Unique Code Label ,see clause 5.7. Once you've scanned the QR code on the Vessel(s) and/or Loop Tote(s) using the App, you can place the Loop Tote(s) and/or Vessel(s) that you're returning in your nearest Loop Return Point. If you're having trouble finding the QR code on the Loop Tote or Vessel or if you cannot locate your nearest Loop Return Point, you can contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
5.7 In some instances when the Vessel you want to return doesn't have a QR code, you'll be able to use a label with a unique code on it ("Unique Code Label") to return the Vessel. In that case, you'll be able to access a Unique Code Label at your nearest Loop Return Point. Take the Vessel to your nearest Loop Return Point and follow the instructions at the Loop Return Point to access your Unique Code Label. Once the Unique Code Label has been accessed, you will need to affix it to the Vessel. Make sure to scan the Unique Code Label using the App before placing the Vessel in the Loop Return Point, so that we know to expect your Vessel. Once you've affixed the Unique Code Label to the Vessel and scanned it using the App, you can place your Vessel in the Loop Return Point.
5.8 Any return of Vessel(s), and Loop Totes when applicable, using the Loop Return Points and the App on your Device in order to scan the QR code on the Vessel or to affix and scan a Unique Code Label (as applicable) will be taken to our warehouse to be processed. Once we've processed your return made by using the App in this manner, we'll let you know and an amount equal to the Deposit Fees applicable to those Vessels, and Loop Tote(s) if applicable, will be returned to your Account.
6. Deposit Fees
6.1 You can view your Deposit Balance for returned Vessels and, if applicable, Loop Tote(s) in the App at any time.

You will have the option to request that an amount equal to the Deposit Fees available on your account’s Deposit Balance are sent to your PayPal account or transferred to your bank account ("Withdrawal Request").
