Please take this opportunity to review the following disclosures and information about accessing and using the Whataburger Services, including the Whataburger Mobile App. If you are under the age of 13, you are not allowed to open a Whataburger Mobile App account or use the Whataburger Mobile App and the Whataburger Services.
E-SIGN Disclosure and Agreement for the Whataburger Mobile App
As part of your relationship with us, we want to ensure you have all of the information you need to effectively manage your Whataburger Mobile App (as that term is defined in the Whataburger Mobile App Terms and Conditions below). We are required by law to give you certain information “in writing,” which means you are entitled to receive it on paper. We may, however, provide some of this information to you electronically, instead, with your prior consent. This E-SIGN Disclosure and Agreement for the Whataburger Mobile App (“E-SIGN Agreement”) describes how Whataburger communicates with you electronically, provides additional detail about the Electronic Communications (as that term is defined below) that we provide you, and sets out hardware and software requirements you need to receive these Electronic Communications. Please review this E-SIGN Agreement as it applies to Electronic Communications and will be effective until expressly withdrawn by you.
Applicability of Consent
This E-SIGN Agreement applies to your use of the Whataburger Mobile App.
Receipt of Electronic Communications; Contact Information
Electronic Communications will be deemed received by you within 24 hours when such Electronic Communication is posted or sent to you. You agree that if Whataburger sends you an Electronic Communication but you do not receive it because your primary email address on file is incorrect, out of date, blocked by your service provider, or you are otherwise unable to receive Electronic Communications, Whataburger will be deemed to have provided the Electronic Communication to you. You may not be able to transact using the Whataburger Mobile App until we receive a valid, working primary email address from you. If you use a spam filter or similar software that blocks or re-routes emails from senders not listed in your email address book, we recommend that you add Whataburger to your email address book so that you can receive Electronic Communications by email.
Required Hardware and Software
You are responsible for maintaining all software and hardware necessary for receiving, viewing and maintaining record of the Electronic Communications. By your acceptance of this Agreement, you represent that you will maintain all hardware and software necessary to receive, view and maintain (including, but not limited to saving and/or printing) any Electronic Communications provided to you. You must have: (a) a valid email address on file with Whataburger; (b) a computer, mobile device, tablet or similar device with internet access and current browser software and computer software that is capable of receiving, accessing, displaying, and either printing or storing Electronic Communications received from us; (c) and sufficient storage space to save Electronic Communications (whether presented online, within the Whataburger Mobile App, in emails or .pdf) or the ability to print Electronic Communications. We will notify you if there are any material changes to the hardware or software needed to receive Electronic Communications from us. By giving your consent you confirm that you have access to the necessary equipment and are able to receive, open, and print or download a copy of any Electronic Communications for your records. You may print or save a copy of these Electronic Communications for your records as they may not be accessible online at a later date.
You are responsible for the installation, maintenance, and operation of your computer or electronic device. We are not responsible for any errors or failures from any malfunction of your computer or electronic device, for any virus, other problems or changes that may be associated with the use of your computer or electronic device, including, for example, the cost of your Internet service provider.
Additional copies of any Electronic Communication may be provided to you without charge by contacting Whataburger within 90 days of the original date of the communication. You may also request paper copies of any electronic communication within 90 days of the communication by contacting Whataburger at the address provided in Section 16.1, but Whataburger reserves the right to assess a reasonable fee for providing such paper copies.
Withdrawal of Electronic Acceptance of Disclosures and Notices
You may withdraw your consent to receive Electronic Communications by contacting Whataburger at the address provided in Section 16.1. If you fail to provide your consent to this E-SIGN Agreement, or if you withdraw your consent to receive Electronic Communications, Whataburger reserves the right to either deny your application/registration for a Whataburger Mobile App Account, restrict or close your Whataburger Mobile App Account, or charge you additional fees for paper copies.
Federal Law; Termination and Changes
You acknowledge and agree that your consent to Electronic Communications is being provided in connection with a transaction affecting interstate commerce that is subject to the federal Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce Act (“E-SIGN Act”), and that you and we both intend that the E-SIGN Act apply to the fullest extent possible to validate our ability to conduct business with you by electronic means. We reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to discontinue the provision of your Electronic Communications, or to terminate or change the terms and conditions on which we provide Electronic Communications. We will provide you with notice of any such termination or change as required by law.
By providing your consent, you are also confirming that you have the hardware and software described above, that you are able to receive and review electronic records, and that you have an active email address for use.

WHATABURGER MOBILE APP TERMS AND CONDITIONS
PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING WHATABURGER MOBILE APP TERMS AND CONDITIONS (THESE “TERMS”) CAREFULLY. THEY GOVERN YOUR ACCESS TO AND USE OF THE WHATABURGER MOBILE APP. DOWNLOADING, INSTALLING, ACCESSING, OR USING THE WHATABURGER MOBILE APP CONSTITUTES ACCEPTANCE OF THESE TERMS, AS THEY MAY BE AMENDED FROM TIME TO TIME. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THESE TERMS, YOU SHOULD UNINSTALL THE MOBILE APP IMMEDIATELY.
THESE TERMS ARE BETWEEN YOU AND WHATABURGER. IF YOU DOWNLOAD THE WHATABURGER MOBILE APP AND YOU DO NOT MEET THE MINIMUM AGE REQUIREMENT, WHATABURGER IS NOT LIABLE FOR ANY OF YOUR SUBSEQUENT PURCHASES OR ACTIVITIES, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, PURCHASE TRANSACTIONS.
IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THESE TERMS, DO NOT ACCESS OR DOWNLOAD THE WHATABURGER MOBILE APP. OTHERWISE, YOUR ACCESS OR DOWNLOAD OF THE WHATABURGER MOBILE APP AND YOUR AGREEMENT TO THESE TERMS MEANS YOU HAVE ACCEPTED ALL OF THESE TERMS.
1. What These Terms Cover. These Terms are entered into between you and Whatabrands LLC and its affiliates and subsidiaries (collectively, “Whataburger,” which may be referred to as “we,” “us,” or “our”) and govern your access to and use of the Whataburger mobile application (the “Whataburger Mobile App” or “Mobile App”). The terms “User” and “you” refer to you. You must accept these Terms before you can use the Whataburger Mobile App. These Terms will be available for you to view at all times on the Whataburger Website at www.whataburger.com. Whataburger may amend these Terms at any time in accordance with Section 10 of the Terms. Please be advised that separate terms and conditions govern your use of the Whataburger.com and AreYouOrangeEnough.com websites (collectively, the “Whataburger Websites” or “Websites”). As between you and Whataburger, Whataburger is solely responsible for the Mobile App. Neither Apple, Inc. (Apple Store), Google, Inc. (Google Play for Android), nor any other app store or marketplace is responsible for the Whataburger Mobile App or any of its contents.
2.1 Description of the Mobile App and Services. Whataburger, through the Mobile App (defined below), allows you to use your mobile device to complete various functions related to: registering for and creating a Whataburger Mobile App Account; loading of funds to your Whataburger Virtual Gift Card account (defined in Section 4.6) linked to your Whataburger Mobile App Account; conducting mobile payment transactions using the Mobile App at participating Whataburger locations; and participating in the Whataburger Rewards Program (discussed further below). You can establish a Mobile App account (the “Mobile App Account”) and load/reload funds to your Whataburger Virtual Gift Card linked to the Mobile App Account using the valid payment method of your choice supported by the Mobile App and accepted by Whataburger. Whataburger, through the Mobile App, also provides additional optional services, such as those related to the Whataburger Rewards Program, and allows you to participate in and/or receive certain promotional materials, offers, and coupons from Whataburger. The payment and optional services (collectively the “Services”) are described in further detail in these Terms, and may be amended by Whataburger in its sole discretion from time to time.
2.2 Nutrition Disclaimer. The Mobile App may provide nutrition information. Percent Daily Values are based on a 2,000-calorie diet. Your daily values may be higher or lower depending on your calorie needs. Nutrient contributions from individual components may not equal the total due to federal rounding regulations. Weight for standard product is expressed as an approximate weight after cooking or “as served.” Beverage serving size reflects the amount of liquid in the beverage cup.
Nutrition formulations and ingredient information is based on standard product formulations obtained by our suppliers and/or third party laboratory analysis. Variations in nutritional content may occur due to changes in seasons, differences in suppliers, recipe revisions and product assembly at the restaurants. Changes to our ingredients may occur without notice resulting in changes to nutritional statements. The Mobile App contains a feature for you to choose “lower calorie” options based upon food preparation methods, item ingredient selections, and side item selections for Whataburger meals. The “lower calorie” options do not include sauces, salad dressings, custom orders or additional condiments that you may consume. The information disclosed in ingredient statements may not identify all ingredients and may use comprehensive terms that may not sufficiently inform a person of the presence of a foodstuff that may produce an allergic reaction. Federal law has identified the eight major food allergens as: eggs, fish, milk, peanuts, shellfish, soy, tree nuts and wheat. For your convenience, menu items which contain these major allergens are identified by a corresponding allergen icon on our online menu at www.whataburger.com. Gluten and MSG are two other common sensitivities which are disclosed on our Mobile App menu. While a particular menu item may not feature one of these allergens, our products may be prepared using equipment that is shared with products containing one or more of these allergens and it is possible for your menu item to come into contact with an allergen. Whataburger, its franchisees and their respective employees do not assume liability for a particular allergy or sensitivity to any food provided in our restaurants. No menu item is certified as gluten-free, vegetarian or vegan. We encourage any individual with food allergies or sensitivities to consult their physician before choosing which Whataburger menu item fits their needs. For most up to date information, please visit www.whataburger.com or call 1-800-6-BURGER. A representative from Whataburger will gladly help answer any questions you may have.

3.2 Compatible Mobile Device Operating System; Mobile Devices Generally. In order to use the Mobile App, you must have a compatible mobile device operating system that meets the specifications established by Whataburger in its sole discretion. Compatible mobile device operating systems may be established by Whataburger from time to time, but as of the effective date of these Terms, compatible mobile device operating systems include Apple iOS and Android operating systems. In addition to having a compatible mobile device operating system, a mobile device that has been modified contrary to the manufacturer’s or mobile service provider’s software or hardware guidelines, including, but not limited to, disabling hardware or software controls (e.g. “jailbreaking”), is not a compatible device with the Whataburger Services for purposes of these Terms. The use of any modified mobile device with the Whataburger Services or Mobile App is a violation of these Terms and is grounds for the immediate termination of your Whataburger Services, including your Mobile App Account, by Whataburger without notice to you, in Whataburger’s sole discretion. You understand and agree you are still subject to the terms and conditions of any agreement you have with any mobile service provider (e.g., AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile, etc.) or any app store or marketplace for the Services (e.g., Apple, Inc. (Apple iOS), or Google, Inc. (Android)), and these Terms do not amend or supersede any of those separate agreements. You understand that such services may provide for fees, charges, limitations and restrictions which might impact your use of the Services (e.g., data use charges, etc.), and you agree to be solely responsible for all such fees, charges, limitations and restrictions. You agree that only your mobile service provider is responsible for the performance and operation of its products and services, including your mobile device and the mobile service provider’s own network. You agree to resolve any problems with your mobile service provider without involving Whataburger, Apple, Inc. (Apple iOS), Google, Inc. (Android), or any other operator of an app store or marketplace. You must comply with applicable third-party terms when using the Services (e.g., you cannot be in violation of your wireless provider agreement when using the Services).
These Terms supplement and incorporate, as applicable, either (a) the Apple, Inc. (“Apple”) Terms and Conditions (located at www.apple.com/legal/internet-services/itunes/us/terms.html) including, without limitation, the Licensed Application End User License Agreement provided therein (“Apple Terms”); or (b) the Google, Inc. (“Google”) Terms of Service (located at www.google.com/intl/en/policies/terms/) including, without limitation, the Google Play Terms of Service provided therein (“Google Terms”); and (c) other Whataburger policies, including Whataburger Rewards (see Section 6.2 of these Terms). If any of the provisions of the Apple Terms and Conditions or any applicable Whataburger policies conflict with these Terms, these Terms will control, solely to the extent such terms apply to the Mobile App. Whataburger, not Apple, Google, or any other operator of an app store or marketplace, is solely responsible for the Mobile App and the content thereof.
3.3 Mobile App and Software. The Whataburger Services are utilized through the Mobile App, which must be downloaded and installed onto your mobile device. Upon downloading the Mobile App to your mobile device, you will be asked to create a Mobile App Account. You must create a Mobile App Account according to Section 4 below. If you already have a Mobile App Account, you must log-in using your Login Credentials to use the Services. You agree that you will download and install any software updates for the Mobile App as they become available, and Whataburger is not responsible for any functionality errors or issues the result from your failure to download and install any software updates for the Mobile App.
3.4 Device Identification Metrics. When the Whataburger Services are utilized through the Mobile App, we may obtain and maintain certain electronic identification or log data that is automatically provided by your device including, but not limited to, the unique device identifier or mobile equipment identifier for your mobile device, Internet Protocol (IP) address, computer/mobile device operating system and browser type, type of mobile device, cookie data, cache data, and latitude and longitude of the device, if geo-location functionality has been enabled on your device (collectively, the “Device Identification Metrics”). This information is necessary as part of our ongoing efforts to detect and deter unauthorized or fraudulent use of, or abuse of, the Whataburger Services and Mobile App Accounts.
4. Mobile App Account Registration.
4.1 Your Mobile App Account. In order to obtain all of the Services provided in the Mobile App, you must create a Mobile App Account. In order to use the payment function of the Mobile App at participating Whataburger locations, you must register at least one valid payment method as described in Section 4.5 below (each a “Payment Method”) in order to load/reload funds to your Whataburger Virtual Gift Card account (defined in Section 4.6 below) linked to your Whataburger Mobile App Account and use the Mobile App for purchases at participating Whataburger locations. By registering a Payment Method with your Mobile App Account that is a either a credit, debit, or stored value account, or a third party mobile wallet account (such as ApplePay™, AndroidPay™ or PayPal™) you authorize Whataburger to take appropriate steps to validate the account. You will not be required to pay for any of the Whataburger Payment Method account verification process.
4.2 Mobile App Account Creation; Payment Method Account Information; Accuracy of Mobile App Account Information; Load and Reload of Funds to Your Mobile App Account. You understand that to create your Mobile App Account, you will be asked to provide your name and certain other personal information, which may include, but may not be limited to, first and last name, address, zip code, valid email address, telephone number, and date of birth. You may also use the “Sign Up With Facebook” of “Sign Up With Google+” function to create your Mobile App Account. If you use “Sign Up With Facebook” or “Sign Up With Google+”, Whataburger will receive your public Facebook or Gmail profile information (including first and last name, email address, profile page information, gender and date of birth), and your current Facebook or Gmail profile picture will be included in the Mobile App. If you use the “Sign Up with Facebook” or “Sign Up With Google+” function you will not be able to unlink your social media account from the Mobile App. If you use the “Sign Up with Facebook” or “Sign Up With Google+” function you may be asked to provide additional information including, but not limited to, your address, zip code and telephone number.
You may elect to participate in certain functionality of the Mobile App which will allow you to use the Mobile App to purchase Whataburger products at participating Whataburger locations in the same manner as is possible with a physical Whataburger gift card (a “Mobile Payment”). Mobile Payment is accepted at all company operated Whataburger retail locations and participating Whataburger licensed franchisee locations. Whataburger reserves the right at any time to discontinue Mobile Payment or change the location of stores accepting Mobile Payment. If you elect to use the Mobile Payment function, you will be asked to provide Whataburger with your Payment Method account information (such as credit card or debit card, or other financial account or third-party mobile wallet information) and the billing address associated with such Payment Method as necessary to load and reload funds to the Whataburger Virtual Gift Card account linked to your Whataburger Mobile App Account used for origination, processing and settlement your payment transactions with participating Whataburger locations. Your provision of a Payment Method and your action within the Whataburger Mobile App of loading/reloading funds to your Whataburger Virtual Gift Card constitutes your authorization for such transactions using your selected Payment Method, and also constitutes your authorization for Whataburger to deploy card validation and anti-fraud measures.
You will have the capability to load more than one Payment Method account for loading/reloading of funds for use in the Whataburger Mobile App. Whataburger reserves the right, at any time and in its sole discretion, to limit the number of Payment Methods that may be associated with a Mobile App Account. The Whataburger Mobile App also contains the ability to scan your Payment Method that is a credit card or debit card as part of the Payment Method account provisioning process. In order to use this function, Whataburger and its Third-Party Providers (defined below) will need access to your “Camera” function on your mobile device. However, the image of the Payment Method credit card or debit card will not be stored in the “Photos” section of your mobile device, nor will the image be stored by Whataburger or its Third-Party Providers.
If you only have one Payment Method account, then the default Payment Method account for loading/reloading funds will be that Payment Method account. If you have more than one Payment Method account, then the default Payment Method account for loading/reloading funds will be the first Payment Method account you enter, unless you change the default Payment Method account within the Mobile App.
If you include a Payment Method account that is a separate third-party mobile wallet, such as ApplePay™, AndroidPay™ or PayPal™, then you understand loading/reloading of funds using those third party mobile wallets is governed by the separate terms and conditions of that particular mobile wallet, including management of separate payment accounts loaded into those mobile wallets. For example, using ApplePay™ with the TouchID™ function to pay is governed by the separate ApplePay™ terms and conditions, and not these Terms.
When you initiate an initial load to your Whataburger Virtual Gift Card account linked to your Whataburger Mobile App Account, we will send you an email confirming the load transaction and immediately bill your Payment Method account for the transaction amount you have selected. The initial load transaction will appear on your Payment Method account statement as “Whataburger Digital Sale” or “Whataburger Mobile Sale.”
Whataburger will impose limits, in its sole discretion, on the number of mobile loads/reloads per day and the amount of funds that you may load/reload into your Whataburger Virtual Gift Card account linked to your Whataburger Mobile App Account. You may also use the Mobile App automatic reload function by setting the default Payment Method account for automatic reloads, and setting either the reload data or the Mobile App Account balance amount that will trigger an automatic funds reload transaction. We will send you an email notifying you when the automatic reload function has been turned on. We will also send you an email confirming each automatic reload transaction and bill your Payment Method account according to the reload schedule and reload transaction amount you have selected. We will send you an email confirmation after each reload transaction to let you know your Mobile App Account has been reloaded. Each reload transaction will appear on your Payment Method account statement as “Whataburger Digital Sale” or “Whataburger Mobile Sale.” You can change your automatic reload preferences or de-activate the automatic reload feature at any time. To stop the automatic reload feature, you must log into the Mobile App and turn off the automatic reload feature. We will send you an email notifying you when the automatic reload function has been turned off. Your selection of the automatic reload function constitutes your ongoing authorization for recurring transactions using your Payment Method selected for automatic reload until you stop such automatic reload feature. Once the dollar value is loaded to your Mobile App Account, the transaction cannot be reversed.
You certify that all information you provide, including Payment Method account information, is accurate and complete. You agree to keep your information current by updating it as needed in the Mobile App. You cannot update your email address in the Mobile App. If you need to update the email address listed in your Whataburger Mobile App Account, you must contact Whataburger Customer Care in one of the following ways:
Physical mail: Whataburger
300 Concord Plaza Dr.
San Antonio, TX 78216
ATTN: Whataburger Customer Care
Whataburger reserves the right to suspend or terminate your Mobile App Account, in Whataburger’s sole discretion, in the event you provide inaccurate, false, or incomplete information, or fail to comply with the Mobile App Account registration requirements.
Whataburger may make personalized marketing messages, ads or offers to you through any medium, including social media, based upon: (a) your interaction with the Mobile App, our website, content, or Services; (b) information from activities such as your purchase and transaction history, including information about you gathered through Whataburger Rewards; and (c) notifications, ads, offers or new Whataburger location announcements or Whataburger events based upon geo-location data collected from your mobile device through the Mobile App. Such information allows us to provide you with more useful and relevant notifications, ads, offers or announcements. We do not sell your personal information to unaffiliated third parties, but we do provide information to third parties, including the Third-Party Providers, for the delivery of notifications, ads, offers or announcements. Also, some third parties may provide us information about you from offline and online sources that we may use to provide you more relevant and useful notifications, ads, offers or announcements.
Whataburger respects your privacy and you can opt out from receiving personalized marketing messages, ads and offers. However, the opt-out will apply only to the specific channel, browser or device from which you opt out. You will need to opt out separately from each channel (e.g., email, push notifications) and on all of your browsers and devices. Note that some Third-Party Providers may also make their own opt-out process available. Please note that for some channels, even if you choose to opt-out of receiving targeted advertising, you may still receive advertising about Whataburger – it just will not be tailored to your interests.
4.4 Login Credentials.
(a) Upon creating your Mobile App Account, you must establish a username and password (your “Mobile App Account Login Credentials”). If you create your Mobile App Account using the “Sign Up With Facebook” or “Sign Up with Google+” option, then your Login Credentials will be the username you establish for the Mobile App Account and your Facebook or Google+/Gmail password. You are solely responsible for safeguarding your Mobile App Account Login Credentials. You may choose to add a Whataburger Mobile App PIN at any time by visiting the “Settings” portion of the Mobile App. Whataburger also strongly encourages you to have a separate mobile device passcode necessary to unlock your mobile device, as recommended by mobile device manufacturers.
(b) When you use your Mobile App Account to make a payment transaction at a participating Whataburger location, you must enter the Mobile App Account Login Credential(s) required to initiate and approve such payment transaction. You are responsible for all activity that occurs under or in association with your Mobile App Account, including unauthorized payment transactions that result from your failure to safeguard your Mobile App Account Login Credential(s) required for payment transactions, or activity that occurs due to your failure to utilize either a Whataburger Mobile App PIN or mobile device passcode.
(c) Please be advised that once you have logged into the Whataburger Mobile App, you will remain logged in until you actively log out. While logged in, your phone may be used to conduct all activities offered in the Mobile App, including conducting payment transactions. Whataburger strongly encourages you to use a Whataburger Mobile App PIN or mobile device passcode to minimize the possibility of another individual using your mobile device and the Whataburger Mobile App to conduct payment transactions.
4.5 Accepted Payment Methods. You may register and provision any valid credit, debit, or stored value account, or third-party mobile wallet account, accepted by Whataburger (each, a “Payment Method”) into the Mobile App. However, you should be aware that only certain Payment Methods are accepted by Whataburger, and you may not be able to provision some of your existing Payment Methods into the Mobile App. For a list of accepted Payment Methods visit the Whataburger Website at www.whataburger.com. Whataburger may, at any time, change or update the list of Payment Methods that you may provision to your Mobile App Account. Whataburger is not a bank and does not offer banking services as defined by the United States Department of Treasury and under applicable law. Whataburger also does not offer money service business services as defined by the United States Department of Treasury or money transmission services as defined under various state laws. Whataburger will comply with all applicable law with regard to its Services. Whataburger is not responsible for the processing of any payment you initiate through use of the Mobile App. You may add or remove a Payment Method from your Mobile App Account at any time by visiting the “Manage” portion of the “Pay” section of the Mobile App.
4.6 Gift Cards. Whataburger may allow you to purchase virtual Whataburger gift cards (“Whataburger Virtual Gift Cards” or “Virtual Gift Cards”) through the Mobile App. Whataburger may also allow you to link your Mobile App Account to physical Whataburger gift cards you purchased outside the Mobile App (“Whataburger Physical Gift Cards” or “Physical Gift Cards”). The Virtual Gift Card allows you to load a dollar value onto your Virtual Gift Card for use at participating Whataburger locations through your Mobile App or third party mobile wallet functionality, with funds loaded/reloaded to your Virtual Gift Card using your selected Payment Method. The dollar value that you load onto your Virtual Gift Card is a prepayment for the goods and services you purchase at participating Whataburger locations. Unless otherwise required by law or permitted by these Terms, the dollar value of your Virtual Gift Card is nonrefundable and may not be redeemed for cash. In the event you close your Mobile App Account, must follow the provisions of Section 4.8 below. The value on your Virtual Gift Card is not insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (“FDIC”) and does not earn interest.
You may not have more than $220.00 in value on any of your Virtual Gift Cards at any time, and no more than $220.00 may be associated with any one Virtual Gift Card in a single day. This means that the activity on any one of your Virtual Gift Cards cannot exceed $220.00 over the course of a day. The total value you may load onto all of your Virtual and Physical Gift Cards, together with the value of any new Virtual or Physical Gift Card that you may purchase, may not exceed $2,000.00 on any given day. Whataburger does not charge any activation, service, dormancy, or inactivity fees in connection with your Virtual or Physical Gift Card. Your Virtual Gift Card has no expiration date and the value associated with your Virtual Gift Card does not expire.
4.7 Authorization to Charge Payment Method Account and Mobile App Account. By registering a Payment Method with your Mobile App Account for load/reload of funds to the Whataburger Virtual Gift Card linked to your Mobile App Account, you authorize Whataburger to charge to your Payment Method when you authorize such load/reload transactions. By using the Mobile App at a participating Whataburger location for Mobile Payment, you authorize Whataburger to charge such transactions to your Whataburger Virtual Gift Card linked to your Mobile Payment Account.
4.8 Termination or Suspension of Your Mobile App Account. In the event that either you or Whataburger terminates, cancels, or suspends your Account, you will no longer be able to utilize the Mobile App. If you have any remaining funds loaded to the Whataburger Virtual Gift Card linked to your Mobile App Account, please contact us in one of the following ways to discuss your options, including transferring any remaining funds to a new Mobile App Account:
Physical mail: Whataburger

ATTN: Whataburger Customer Care
4.9 Illegal or Unauthorized Use of Your Mobile App Account; Lost or Stolen Mobile Device. Whataburger reserves the right, without liability, to suspend your Mobile App Account and prevent you from using the Services and Mobile App in the event Whataburger believes a transaction has been made in violation of these Terms, is fraudulent or unauthorized, or has been made for criminal purposes. If Whataburger believes, in its sole discretion, that your Mobile App Account has been used for unauthorized, illegal or criminal proposes, whether by you or by some other party, you give Whataburger express authorization to: (a) share information related to use of your Mobile App Account, including transaction information and your personal information; (b) take necessary steps to detect or respond to instances of potential or actual fraud or other illegal activities; (c) respond to a law enforcement agency’s request for information or cooperation in an investigation; or (d) respond to judicial process or other valid government investigation process. In the event that your mobile device is lost or stolen, you must immediately contact the issuing bank for all Payment Method cards or accounts you entered into the Mobile App for loading/reloading of funds (including any accounts included in any third-party mobile wallet you are using) in order to prevent unauthorized transactions. In addition, you should also contact Whataburger directly to inform us that your mobile device was lost or stolen and instructing us to deactivate your Whataburger Mobile App Account. Such Mobile App Account deactivation may take several days for us to implement, which is why you should contact the issuing bank(s) for your Payment Method(s) first. If you instruct us to deactivate your Mobile App Account due to your mobile device being lost or stolen, and you have funds remaining on your Whataburger Virtual Gift Card associated with your Mobile App Account, you must follow the provisions of Section 4.8 of these Terms.
5. Use of the Services and Mobile App.

Whataburger reserves the right to change, modify, and/or eliminate the Whataburger Rewards Program at any time and in its sole discretion.
Whataburger Rewards is one way in which Whataburger endeavors to reward and thank loyal Whataburger customers for purchasing Whataburger products. Whataburger Mobile App users can earn and accumulate Whataburger Rewards that may be redeemed at participating Whataburger locations. Unfortunately, not all locations have the ability to award or honor Whataburger Rewards at this time. For example, you cannot earn or redeem Whataburger Rewards at non-participating Whataburger locations.
In addition to the Whataburger Rewards Program, we, or Third-Party Providers acting with our permission, may offer you special promotional rewards or other items.
(b) Rewards Benefits.
The benefits that are available to you through Whataburger Rewards are based on the number of food purchases you make at participating Whataburger locations (each a “Qualifying Visit”). You will earn one (1) Whataburger Reward when you make five (5) Qualifying Visits at participating Whataburger locations in a rolling one (1) year period calculated from the date on which you create your Mobile App Account. To make a Qualifying Visit that counts towards a Whataburger Reward, you must (a) scan the barcode in the Whataburger Rewards section of your Mobile App, and/or (b) pay with your Whataburger Virtual Gift Card account linked to your Mobile App (either within the Mobile App or from within a third party mobile wallet into which your Whataburger Gift Card has been added) when you make a food purchase.
(c) Earning a Qualifying Visit. You can only earn one (1) Qualifying Visit every three (3) hours. Some purchase exclusions apply. For instance, you cannot earn Whataburger Rewards on Whataburger merchandise (e.g. t-shirts, caps), Whataburger retail products (e.g. Whataburger ketchup sold at grocery store locations, other retail locations or online), purchase of physical Whataburger gift cards or loading/reloading of funds onto your Whataburger Virtual Gift Card associated with your Mobile App, or other non-food items. Taxes, tips, donations, and fees may also be excluded or ineligible for Whataburger Rewards accrual. In-restaurant purchases made under Whataburger’s Group Dining Program are also excluded.
(d) Qualifying Visit Expiration.
If you do not make five (5) Qualifying Visits (a) for the first Whataburger Reward, within one (1) year of registering for Whataburger Rewards by creating your Mobile Account, or (b) for subsequent Whataburger Rewards, within one (1) year of redeeming your most recent prior Whataburger Reward, you will lose any Qualifying Visits you have made since registering for Whataburger Rewards or redeeming your most recent Whataburger Reward, and accrual of the five (5) Qualifying Visits will start over.
(e) Reward Redemption.
You may redeem each Whataburger Reward for the specific menu items that Whataburger, in its sole discretion, may make available for Whataburger Rewards redemption.

The Web Sites may provide nutrition information. Percent Daily Values are based on a 2,000-calorie diet. Your daily values may be higher or lower depending on your calorie needs. Nutrient contributions from individual components may not equal the total due to federal rounding regulations. Weight for standard product is expressed as an approximate weight after cooking or “as served.” Soft drink serving size reflects the amount of liquid in the beverage cup.
Nutrition formulations and ingredient information is based on standard product formulations obtained by our suppliers and/or third party laboratory analysis. Variations in nutritional content may occur due to changes in seasons, differences in suppliers, recipe revisions and product assembly at the restaurants. Changes to our ingredients may occur without notice resulting in changes to nutritional statements. The information disclosed in ingredient statements may not identify all ingredients and may use comprehensive terms that may not sufficiently inform a person of the presence of a foodstuff that may produce an allergic reaction. Federal law has identified the eight major food allergens as: eggs, fish, milk, peanuts, shellfish, soy, tree nuts and wheat. For your convenience, menu items which contain these major allergens are identified by a corresponding allergen icon on our online menu at www.whataburger.com/food. Gluten and MSG are two other common sensitivities which are disclosed on our online menu. While a particular menu item may not feature one of these allergens, our products may be prepared using equipment that is shared with products containing one or more of these allergens and it is possible for your menu item to come into contact with an allergen. Whataburger, its franchisees and their respective employees do not assume liability for a particular allergy or sensitivity to any food provided in our restaurants. No menu item is certified as gluten-free, vegetarian or vegan. We encourage any individual with food allergies or sensitivities to consult their physician before choosing which Whataburger menu item fits their needs. For most up to date information, please visit www.whataburger.com or call 1-800-6-BURGER. A representative from Whataburger will gladly help answer any questions you may have.
