Algramo constitutes a service for the sale of bulk products (“Products”), by means of a system of successive refills in containers which have an integrated chip which enables them to be associated with your account in the App (“Smart Containers or Packaging).
With Algramo you can refill your Smart Packaging or Container as many times as you wish, and with the amount of Product that you need, paying the bulk value (“Refill”) with the balance available in your user account within the App. The Refills are performed by means of dispenser units which have the built-in technology required to recognize the Smart Packaging or Containers (“Services”).
When buying certain Products with your Smart Packaging (or Container), you may receive a reward in points associated to your Smart recharged (or refilled) Container, whereby each point is equal to $1 (one peso of USD equivalent), which you may accumulate for use in future Refills. By reusing your Smart Container (or Packaging) and accumulating points, you will be contributing to conserving the environment and reducing waste.

Algramo has developed Smart Containers enabled by a smart chip. This chip contains the information of the Account Holder to which it is assigned. The Dispenser Unit will recognize the Smart Container to process a Refill.
There is one specific type of, and size of Smart Container for each Product associated with the Services. The Dispenser units will only refill the Product which corresponds to the Smart Container, and as long as you have sufficient funds for said request, be it in cash or in accumulated points. (“Balance”).
Each Smart Container has a label which may contain information including but not limited to instructions for use, formula, warnings, precautions, information from the manufacturer and/or distributor and contact information, which you are responsible for following when using the Product. Algramo is not liable for any issues that may arise from the Product or use of Product, Algramo dispensing system or platforms services. If you have any questions about the use of your Products, please contact the manufacturer directly as indicated on the label. Algramo is also not liable for packaging misuse, lost packaging and lost account balances associated. Algramo is not liable for Dispensing systems misuse.
Each time you Refill, and are not purchasing a new plastic package, the App will show you the equivalent approximated number of plastic bags (“Saved Bags”) or plastic water bottles avoided (“Avoided Bottles”) through your reuse actions. The App will show updated information on its environmental impact. Please note that these conversions are not direct equivalents as there are many types of plastics in traditional packaging, and in these equivalent calculations. We are using best available averages and providing indicative environmental savings. If necessary, at time, you may delete a Smart Container from your Account and register a new one.
After downloading the App, you will be able to see the different Products offered by Algramo in your area.
The variety of Products available for Refill may change at any time. Any updates will be reflected in the App.
To Pay for Product Refills you must have enough funding (or Balance) in your Account.
Refill payments are debited from your Balance immediately upon submitting (or scheduling) an order through the App or at the Dispenser. .
You can add funds to your Balance with a credit card through the App, or via the local or international payment operator with coverage in Chile that is available on the App.
When registering a credit card, you must make sure that it is a valid card, that it is operational and that it is enabled to perform electronic operations and that it has sufficient funds. Algramo may verify the validity and authenticity of the registered card with a symbolic charge [of $0.001], which shall be reimbursed automatically into your account upon completion of the payment method registration process.

You may buy your Smart Container through the App when you perform the first Refill of a Product, or at any time thereafter; and obtain the aforementioned Smart Container from the Algramo Dispensers (either mobile or stationary units).
Algramo is working to service many territories but we may not be available in a convenient area to you. At any time you may see where Algramo mobile Dispensers or Fixed Locations are available. These locations will be shown in the App in the “Point of sale” section, and this information will be updated as our coverage expands.
You may also request and schedule Refills at your registered address. Do this, select the Product, the amount you wish to refill (in kilograms or in liters), indicate who will receive it and schedule the date, the time range and the preferred address. You can request Refills of more than one Product at a time, but only for the Products and related Smart Container you have in your account.
After submitting your Mobile Refill order information, the App will show you a summary of the total cost of your purchase, and you will be able to choose to pay immediately or at the time of the Refill.
After completing your order, we will notify you that the order has been successfully scheduled and alert you to any errors .
You may see a record of your purchases and your pending orders in the “Orders” section of the App.
The Smart Containers must be in Good Condition, meaning no cracks, points of weakness, with the labeling included and intact, and not contaminated with other products, prior to each Refill. You will be responsible for maintaining the Smart Containers and replace them when necessary. We recommend you check your Smart Containers before each Refill in order to avoid any spills, leaks or any other unforeseen circumstance that could hinder the correct provision of the Service.
Algramo and related brands may choose to provide benefits in the form of points associated with the amount of product that you buy, the number of refills you perform, or based on other criteria. Any points earned will accumulate to the Smart Container directly. Any points earned will be the equivalent of 1 (one) peso or equivalent USD $0.01 USD depending on location, which you may use towards future Refills.
In order to use points earned, you must indicate that you wish to use them in the App, or the dispensing system platform. The points will expire after one (1) year from the last Refill that you have performed.
Keep in mind that the points accumulate onto the Smart Container (not your App Account Balance). Therefore, if you lose a Smart Container, you will also lose the points you have earned with that Container.
Cancelling Home-Delivery Refills
If you schedule a Mobile Refill, you will be able to cancel it through the App, free of charge, up to four (4) hours prior to the beginning to delivery time range selected. If you cancel with less than four (4) hours of advance notice from the time range selected for delivery, you will have to pay a cancellation fee, equivalent to the cost of the delivery itself.
This cancellation fee will be deducted directly from your Balance. If you do not have sufficient Balance available in your Account, your Balance will be affected anyhow and the fine will be deducted from your Balance, even if it generates a negative figure. You will not be able to make any new purchases until you have added sufficient funds to your Account so that the Balance is positive.

Delivery of promotional codes
We may create, at our discretion, promotional codes (“Coupons”) which may load additional funds to your Account, or provide other benefits to your Account, in accordance with the indicated policies of each Coupon.
Use of Coupons must be in compliance with the indicated policies of each coupon.
