This Cardholder Agreement (“Agreement”) contains all terms and conditions applicable to your Cirque du Soleil® Canadian gift card (“Card”) which is issued by Cirque du Soleil Canada Inc. (hereinafter referred to as “Issuer”). In this Agreement, "we", "us", and "our" mean the Issuer, our successors, affiliates or assignees and "you" and "your" refer to the person who has purchased, obtained or received the Card and who is rightfully authorized to use the Card as provided for in this Agreement. Your Card is redeemable online atcirquedusoleil.com/gift-cards and at participating Cirque du Soleil point of sales. Your Card is redeemable for the purchase of tickets to Cirque du Soleil shows presented in Canada and the United States of America. At this time, Cards cannot be used to purchase Cirque du Soleil merchandise or food and beverage at Cirque du Soleil shows presented in arenas or to purchase food and beverage at performances of Cirque du Soleil resident shows. All purchases made with your Card are subject to the applicable Cirque du Soleil’s refund and exchange policy. The amount of any refund will be placed back on the Card.
To learn where to use your Card, please visit cirquedusoleil.com/gift-cards or contact us at 1-877-924-7783.
Transactions Made in Foreign Currencies
Your Card is in Canadian currency. If you use your Card in the United States of America, we will convert any transactions made in US currency to Canadian dollars using the Visa conversion rate in effect on the day the transaction is posted to your Card.
If a US currency transaction is refunded to your Card, the Visa conversion rate used to convert your refund to Canadian dollars for your Card is the rate that is in effect on the date of conversion. This rate may not be the same rate that existed on the date the transaction was refunded. For these reasons, the amount that is credited to your Card for a refund of a US currency transaction will, in most cases, be different than the amount that was originally charged to your Card for that transaction.
We agree to maintain the Card for you and to perform according to this Agreement. By purchasing, activating, using or by permitting anyone else to use the Card, you agree to the provisions of this Agreement, and further agree that this Agreement is binding on your successors, representatives and assigns. This Agreement is in effect as of the date of purchase of the Card.
NOT APPLICABLE TO RESIDENTS OF QUEBEC: We may from time to time adopt new or amended provisions to this Agreement to comply with governmental, federal or provincial laws or regulations governing the Card or if otherwise permitted by law, and you will be notified of any change prior to the effective date of such change, to the extent required by law. The most recent version of the Agreement is always available at cirquedusoleil.com/gift-cards and if we change the Agreement a notice will be posted at cirquedusoleil.com/gift-cards.
