We may refer fraudulent or abusive or illegal activity to the relevant authorities.
  5. Starbucks may add, vary, enforce or implement any security measures to the App as Starbucks considers appropriate from time to time. These measures may vary the way you use the App.

We release new versions of the App from time to time. Please keep the App updated to the most current version at all times. Older versions of the App may not function properly, or at all.

3.2 Mobile data usage

The App requires mobile internet connectivity to function properly. It will consume data from your mobile device. You are responsible for any data charges that you may incur in using the App.

3.3 Starbucks Card

The App allows you to display your Starbucks Card so that it can be scanned at our point of sale terminals. You may need to present your Starbucks Card in order to interact with certain Features.

  2. Starbucks collects and uses your location information to provide the functionalities of those Features. The Features may implement software components (for example mapping services) that are provided by third parties. Those third parties may gather and report information about you in connection with your use of the App for the purpose of providing those components.
  3. The App will seek your permission by a pop message on your Device, and you indicate your consent by enabling location services and giving the App the requested permission through your Device’s native operating system.

Depending on your Device’s native operation system and your settings, these push notifications may appear as a pop up box, a “badge” on the Apps icon or a message in the notification centre of your Device. You can manage push notifications directly in the settings of your Device.

  3. You can scan your Starbucks Card and earn Stars or redeem Rewards, then complete your transaction via a tender type of your choice in Starbucks Stores, including cash, credit card, debit card or mobile wallet.
  4. Starbucks may add or remove available payment methods at any time in its sole discretion.

17.2 Topping Up Via Linked Payment Method

You can add balance to your Starbucks Account in pre-determined or custom increments using a credit card linked to your Starbucks Account.

17.3 Topping Up In Store

17.4 Your Account Balance

  1. Payments via the App are processed by our third party provider and are pursuant to the following conditions:
    1. You must be fully entitled to use your nominated payment method.
    2. It is your responsibility to ensure your nominated payment method details are valid and up to date and that sufficient funds or credit facilities are available at the time of payment processing to cover the purchase.
    3. Payment for orders will be processed immediately.
    4. We reserve the right to obtain validation of your payment details before approving your payment and carry out security checks from time to time. If your nominated payment method triggers fraud prevention protocols (i.e. your credit or debit card has expired, has been reported stolen by your bank) or where your nominated payment method is unable to be used for any other reason, your transaction may be rescinded. You will be notified via the App that your payment was unsuccessful.
    5. Starbucks does not see nor store details of your nominated payment methods. All payment information is collected, processed and stored by our third party service provider in order for your transactions to be processed as required.
    6. Starbucks reserves the right to investigate all accounts where we suspect incorrect or fraudulent activity has occurred. If we reasonably suspect fraud or illegality, we reserve the right to place a hold on your account and prevent it being used. We can prevent an account being used where we reasonably believe that allowing it to be used may cause harm to any person (including us or a Starbucks Store). If we reasonably believe that value loaded to an account is the result of any fraud or illegality, we can cancel that value at any time without liability to the holder of the account. We will consider in good faith any information from the holder of the account to show that value has been loaded lawfully.
  2. You are not required to pay GST on the value loaded to your account. However, GST will be included in the value of any goods and services you obtain using your account.
  3. Your Starbucks Account can have a balance of no more than AUD $500. A reload transaction will not be processed if it would cause this limit to be exceeded.
  4. The maximum amount of a single reload transaction is AUD$200.
  5. Your Starbucks Account is not a deposit facility. You are able to use the balance to obtain goods and services at Starbucks Stores, but you have no other rights to use value that are not expressly provided in these Conditions. In particular, there is no right to receive monetary value or cash in exchange for value loaded to your Starbucks Account – you cannot ask us to return any amount loaded to your account to you (subject to your rights under consumer protection laws).
  6. Starbucks does not charge fees or charges for the issue of a gift card or for loading funds to your Starbucks Account.
  7. However, there may be fees and charges associated with the method by which you choose to load funds in your Starbucks Account. These fees and charges may be subject to change, but you will be notified of these fees and charges prior to being charged.
