Terms and Conditions
Last Updated: August 14, 2020
The Sodexo website or application (both referred to hereinafter as the “Website”) has been designed for the purpose of providing information to its users.
Your access to and use of this Website indicates your irrevocable and unreserved acceptance of these Terms and Conditions.
All the provisions of these Terms and Conditions apply to all users. You should therefore review the Terms and Conditions each time you access, view and/or use the Website.
Some features of the Website, including, without limitation, the placing of orders, may require you to make payments. When paid by you, these payments are final and non-refundable, unless otherwise determined by Sodexo. Sodexo, in its sole discretion, may offer credits or refunds at our sole discretion, such as in the event of an error with your order or in the amounts you were charged.
Sodexo (or its authorized third-party providers) will charge, and you authorize them to charge, the payment method you specify at the time of purchase. If you pay any amounts with a credit card, Sodexo may seek pre-authorization of your credit card account prior to your purchase to verify that the credit card is valid and has credit available for your intended purchase. Also, if you are a campus user and you opt to pay for a purchase with your stored-value card, on certain campuses, (i) Sodexo will charge such purchase to your stored-value card and will charge any applicable fees to the payment method on file with us, and (ii) you agree that Sodexo may be unable to refund a purchase to your stored-value card and may, in its discretion, provide a refund through an alternative method.
Sodexo reserves the right to establish, remove, and/or revise prices, fees, taxes, and/or surcharges for any or all services or goods obtained through the use of the Services at any time, and further reserves the right to consolidate or otherwise incorporate fees and/or surcharges into the prices listed. Sodexo may also, in its sole discretion, make Bite Rewards or other promotional offers with different features and different rates available to any or all of our users. Unless made available to you, these Bite Rewards and promotional offers will have no bearing on your obligation to pay the amounts charged. For more information on these offers, please see the “Bite Rewards” section below.

Payments and rewards made in connection with this Website may also be provided by a third-party provider and the provider may change based on the site location. Where these Terms and Conditions conflict with the third-party provider or with the payment processor’s payment terms, those third-party terms will govern.
Enrolling in Bite Rewards
The Bite Rewards ("Bite Rewards") program allows you to earn and/or receive Offers from Bite. Participation in Bite Rewards is limited to persons at least 13 years old and residing in the United States who download the Bite Mobile App (the “App”) and sign-up for a Bite Rewards account. Bite Rewards accounts are limited to one individual per account. Bite Rewards are valid only at participating Sodexo locations. To sign up for a Bite Rewards account, download the App to your Android or iPhone® device and follow the prompts to access account sign-up and/or sign-in page in the App. You will be required to provide the requested information, including, but not limited to, user name, password, name, and e-mail address. Sodexo may periodically request additional information to help us get to know you better. You agree to provide true and accurate information and to ensure that information provided by you is up-to-date and accurate. Communications with you will be made using contact information most recently provided by you. Sodexo is not responsible for your inability to receive or redeem Offers or other loss arising from your failure to provide and maintain accurate contact information.
Your participation in Bite Rewards is personal and non-transferable. Bite Rewards status and/or individual Bite Rewards may not be purchased, sold, bartered, brokered or otherwise transferred. There are no membership fees associated with Bite Rewards. Offers made via Bite Rewards are purely promotional offers. You agree that no portion of your payment for purchases qualifying for any Offer constitutes consideration paid for any Bite Reward offer.
Earning Bite Rewards
Bite Rewards are issued on a periodic basis. They are referred to as ‘Bite Rewards’ in the App but may appear with different descriptions from time to time. Upon signing up, you will receive notice via your Bite Rewards account of your current Offer. Once you activate a Bite Rewards account, you progress towards an Offer and may be eligible to receive special offers, from time to time. The number, type and frequency of Offers are based on a number of factors, each of which are subject to change, without notice. Those factors may include, without limitation, volume and type of purchases at participating Sodexo locations, number of visits and frequency of visits to participating Sodexo locations, interaction with other Sodexo applications or promotions; or special offers made directly by Sodexo locations or the Bite App which may include ways to progress toward your next Offer via a special promotion. For Offers that are based on purchases, the following types of purchases at a participating Sodexo location qualify: (1) placing and completing a Mobile order for a qualifying purchase through the App, where applicable; (2) or completing a transaction at a participating Sodexo location and scanning the digital code linking to your Bite Rewards account at checkout.
You must use the App, or if placing an online order be signed into your Bite Rewards account, to complete the qualifying purchase or activity in order for that purchase or activity to count towards your progress to the next qualifying Offer. Benefits applied from any single qualifying purchase or activity may only be credited to one (1) Bite Rewards account. The qualifying purchase or activity will be applied to your Bite Rewards account after completion of the qualifying purchase or activity. In certain cases, it may take twenty-four (24) hours or more to be credited. Sodexo shall not be responsible for, or liable to, you, or any person or entity, in any way for any losses, costs or expenses incurred by a delay, error or omission in crediting a qualifying purchase or activity to your Bite Rewards account.
Offers are promotional offers and may have certain restrictions including expiration dates and short, time-limited redemption periods. For free drink or food Offers, some restrictions apply, and items are subject to availability at specific, participating locations. All Offers must be redeemed prior to the stated expiration date to be valid. It is your responsibility to check your Bite Rewards account periodically for Offers and use the Offers prior to the stated expiration date.
Activities which allow progress towards Offers do not count towards and may not be combined with other programs. Activities tied to specific Offers must be fully completed and will only result in one Offer, regardless of the number of times the activity is performed. Partial Bite Rewards will not be issued. Sodexo reserves the right to change, modify or update these Offers and the qualifying purchases and activities to progress to an Offer from time to time without notice. Sodexo is under no obligation to provide you with any particular number of Offer opportunities or special offers. Sodexo reserves the right to limit enrolment at any time.
Sodexo and participating Sodexo locations, in their sole and absolute discretion, may periodically offer the opportunity for additional Offers on particular transactions or special offers (“Special Offers”). Special Offers may also be distributed to you via the App or via e-mail or from time to time (based on the information you have in your Bite Rewards account). Special Offers may include periodic promotional offers on food, beverages and merchandise. You must have your App set to receive notifications and/or have opted-in to receive email communications in order to receive promotional and marketing offers. Special Offers may be customized based on your qualifying purchases and preferences. In certain events, Special Offers may require that you have location settings enabled for them to be distributed to your App. Please note that Sodexo and participating Sodexo locations may be unable to send these Special Offers to you if you have turned off your notifications or location settings in the App; if you have elected not to receive email communications from Sodexo; or if you have poor network connectivity. Special Offers may have certain restrictions including expiration dates and short, time-limited redemption periods. Special Offers are personal to you and cannot be shared, copied or transferred. You may be required to present your Bite Rewards account information at the participating Sodexo locations in order to redeem Special Offers. Read each offer carefully for specific details, limitations and restrictions.
To redeem an Offer, you must present the valid Offer in the App at a participating Sodexo location (for in-person transactions). Offers are subject to availability and limitations as may be imposed by Sodexo. Determinations regarding redemption of Offers are subject to the discretion of the participating Sodexo locations.
Once redeemed, the Offer will be indicated as redeemed in your Bite Rewards account. Updates to the status of Offers may take 24-48 hours or more to show up in your account. A list of current Offers is available under your Bite Rewards account. Offers have no cash value and are not redeemable for cash, gift certificates or gift cards. Offers are promotional and do not constitute property of any Bite Rewards account holder. Sodexo reserves the right to limit the redemption of specific Offers and limit the number of Offers available. Sodexo reserves the right to modify the number of qualifying purchases or transactions needed to receive specific Offers.
You may opt-out of Bite Rewards Offers at any time, for any reason by cancelling your Bite Rewards account. If you cancel your Bite Rewards account, any unredeemed Offers and/or progress towards other Offers will automatically expire and will no longer be available for redemption.
Upon cancellation, your Bite Rewards account shall immediately cease and you may no longer receive Offers or receive Bite Rewards benefits. Sodexo has no obligation to refund you for any unredeemed Offers or benefits following cancellation. If you continue to receive our communications after expressing an opt-out preference, please let us know so that we can investigate the situation.
Right of Termination
Sodexo reserves the right to terminate the Bite Rewards program, or any or all benefits under Bite Rewards, at any time, for any reason without providing electronic or written notice to you. In the event of such termination, at Sodexo’s election, Sodexo may allow you to redeem any outstanding valid and unexpired Offers at a participating Sodexo location until expiration of such Offers.
