netAirspace offers a bonus program called "netAirspace Miles". The participation in the program is linked to your membership with netAirspace, and is completely free of charge for all registered members.
It is not possible to purchase netAirspace Miles. You can earn miles exclusively through the site, by performing activities such as uploading photos to the site's photo database, earning predefined achievements or using other site features.
Accrued miles can be used to claim premiums, such as free upgrades to your membership, discounts at certain online shops, or bonus miles for certain airline bonus programs.
netAirspace provides no warranty that netAirspace Miles will be awarded correctly to you. All information provided throughout the site regarding the crediting of Miles is non-binding.
netAirspace does not guarantee the availability of premiums. Premium offers advertised by netAirspace throughout the site are always non-binding. Premiums can be cancelled, or the amount of Miles required for a premium can change any time, without advance notice, even after you requested a specific premium.
All premiums other than site memberships are subject to availability as well as to terms and conditions provided by third parties, such as online shops and airline bonus programs. These third-party terms may limit you in the way you can use your claimed premium. netAirspace is not responsible for such limitations. This applies especially (but not exclusively) to the purchase of airline miles.
Unless explicitly stated otherwise, netAirspace is not affiliated with third-party providers such as online shops or airlines.
netAirspace reserves the right to remove any amount of Miles from your account at any time. We will do this whenever we have reason to believe that you gathered Miles by inappropriate means, such as measures described in §6 (Prohibited Conduct).
By participating in the netAirspace Miles program, you agree that netAirspace Miles are non-monetary, do not represent a commercial value, do not represent an entitlement to premiums, may expire, are not refundable and not transferrable.13. Incorporated documents
