2.1 All natural persons, who are at least 14 years of age and who are paying passengers on Alitalia flights and/or Partner Airline flights and/or have bought goods and services from the Promoters and/or Partners, are eligible to participate in the Program. Program registration is only valid if both a postal address for the MilleMiglia card to be sent to (and which, for the sole purpose of participation in localized promotional initiatives, will be deemed by the Promoters to be the Member's place of residence) and a personal email address, to which MilleMiglia correspondence can be sent, are provided. Registration for the Program by unemancipated minors is subject to the express approval of their parents or those with parental authority, who will be responsible for the registration of the minors.
2.2 The Promoters reserve the right to deny Program participation to those who do not meet the requirements set out in these Regulations or to exclude them from the Program if failure to meet the above-mentioned requirements is subsequently discovered. If Program registration should contravene or fail to comply with the applicable provisions of the Regulations, the Promoters reserve the right to revoke the Member's registration and to cancel the Miles earned that have yet to be redeemed at the time the revocation is communicated, as well as to void any Rewards previously obtained but not yet redeemed.
2.3 To join the Program, you must register via the website www.alitalia.com or contact the Customer Center or via other channels communicated from time to time by the Promoters. Registration for the MilleMiglia Program requires that these Regulations have been read and accepted in full. If you are applying for a Co-branded card requiring membership of the Program, you can register to join the Program by completing the specific form so that your personal data can be communicated to the Promoters and Financial Partners promoting the card.
2.4 Upon registration, Members are provided with a personal numerical code (MilleMiglia code), which must be given when booking flights and checking in at the airport for the relevant number of Miles to be credited. The personal numerical code identifying each Member corresponds to an account to which earned Miles will be credited: (i) resulting from flights actually taken (i.e. "flown") with Alitalia, using paid air tickets (not Reward tickets) (ii) resulting from flights actually taken with Partner Airlines using paid air tickets (not Reward tickets), (iii) resulting from the use of goods and/or services provided by Promoters, and (iv) from the purchase of products and the use of goods and/or services provided by other Partners, in accordance with the terms and conditions set out on the website www.alitalia.com and/or in the Program Communications.
2.5 Moreover, Members will receive at their own email address the PIN needed to access their dedicated services, as well as the specific instructions for doing so. Members bear sole responsibility for the confidentiality of their own PIN and the Promoters will not be responsible for any fraudulent use of the same.
2.6 Members will be sent their MilleMiglia Card, bearing their personal information and personal numerical code, separately, after their first flight activity with Alitalia and/or with Partner Airlines and/or with Commercial Partners. The MilleMiglia Card bears the Member's name and may only be used by its holder. The Card remains the property of the Promoters and must be returned if requested by them or if the Member withdraws from the Program. In the event that the MilleMiglia Card is lost, stolen or damaged, the Member must notify the Customer Center promptly. The Customer Center may then re-issue the card or close the corresponding account, and open a new account to which the entire balance of the Miles earned will be transferred. In such an event, the Member will receive a new code, a new MilleMiglia Card and a new PIN. However, the Promoters will not be responsible for any fraudulent use of the lost or stolen MilleMiglia Card. If a PIN is lost, the Member should contact the Customer Center, which will issue a new PIN, by sending it to the email address provided in the Member's account profile. Members can also receive a new PIN using the appropriate recognition function on the website www.alitalia.com. To this end, Members should always keep their personal profile and email address up to date. For security reasons, once a PIN has been retrieved, Members should change their PIN using the information update function provided on the website www.alitalia.com.
2.7 Each registration is made under the name of a single Member and requires the Member to provide his or her own personal information and to notify any changes thereof via the website or by contacting the Customer Center. The Member ensures the accuracy of all information provided to the Promoters and is solely responsible for it. The same personal numerical code or the same account cannot be registered to more than one person. If multiple codes or accounts are registered to the same Member, the Promoters will, after informing the Member in question, transfer the balance of the Miles earned to a single account and close the other accounts. In such case, if Miles relating to the same flight/service have been credited to multiple accounts in the name of the same Member, they will be credited just once to the single, valid account.
2.8 Members' accounts are personal and in their name, meaning Members can only have or use Miles earned themselves and cannot have or use Miles earned by any other person, including any heirs.
2.9 The purchase and transfer of Miles between different accounts is not permitted other than as expressly provided for in these Regulations and stated on the website www.alitalia.com and/or in the Program Communications.
2.10 Members who were registered for previous MilleMiglia Programs shall be automatically registered for the new Program, without prejudice to their right to request cancellation of their Membership. Members may leave the Program at any time prior to membership expiration. In such case, Members will be able to use the Miles earned to that point to claim a Reward; any residual Miles will be canceled at the time of withdrawal. Members must request withdrawal from the Program in writing, indicating their personal numerical code and attaching a copy of a valid, countersigned document, sending it to the email address firstname.lastname@example.org.
2.11 Members may not sell or trade their Miles in any way, except where expressly provided for in these Regulations and stated on the website www.alitalia.com and/or in the Program Communications. Similarly, Members may not sell or trade the advantages and benefits obtained through the Program, except where expressly provided for in these Regulations and stated on the website www.alitalia.com and/or in the Program Communications.
2.12 The Promoters reserve the right to offer promotional initiatives to specific groups of customers. By participating in such promotional initiatives, the Customer may receive a number of benefits in addition to those provided for by the Program.
2.13 Program Members may subscribe to the Social Login service, which gives them access to all MilleMiglia services using the access credentials of their favorite social network. The personal data provided when subscribing to the service is collected and recorded by the Promoters in paper, electronic and/or computer and/or telematic formats, protected and processed with the appropriate means for ensuring security and confidentiality in accordance with the provisions of Legislative Decree no. 196 of June 30, 2003 on the protection of personal data.

The list of Program Partners is provided in Appendix A of these Regulations and on the website www.alitalia.com and/or in the Program Communications.

ART. 5 – MILES
5.1 Miles are the basic unit of calculation used by the Promoters for the Program. Members earn Miles on the Airline's flights and on those of the Program Partner Airlines, as well as when purchasing the goods and services of Promoters and Commercial Partners. Members also earn Miles on all flights operated by SkyTeam airlines, including code-sharing flights operated by the same, and on Alitalia code-sharing flights operated by Partner Airlines. Members do not earn Miles on Alitalia and/or other Partner Airline code-sharing flights operated by airlines that are not Program partners.
5.2 The number of Miles accumulated for flights is calculated based on the IATA TPM (Ticketed Point Mileage) distance or on the minimum number of Miles envisaged by the Program between the flight's departure and destination airports and on the booking class used, which indicates the pre-selected rate. For multi-leg flights, Miles are credited in relation to individual legs. The number of Miles credited is specified in the miles earning tables available on the website www.alitalia.com and/or in the Program Communications, which are in force at the time the ticket for each leg is used. The content of these tables is only valid for the period specified on the website www.alitalia.com. The services provided and the products offered by Partner companies that are eligible for Miles are indicated on the website www.alitalia.com and/or in the Program Communications.
5.3 To have Miles credited automatically, Members must quote their personal numerical code when booking flights and must show their MilleMiglia Card when checking in at the airport. It may not be possible to credit Miles automatically at some airports. If Miles are not credited automatically, Members are entitled to a Crediting of Missing Miles by submitting a request within four (4) months of taking the flight to which the Miles refer, as specified on the website www.alitalia.com and/or in the Program Communications. If the services or products of a Commercial Partner are used, Members must quote their personal numerical code when booking the service or purchasing the product. If Miles are not credited for a service or product offered by a Partner, it will be necessary to contact the Partner's Customer Center directly.
5.4 In the event that a Member is also registered in another Partner Airline's loyalty program and flies with one of those Airlines, he will not be able to have duplicate Miles credited to the account of that program as well as to the account of this Program. If the Promoters establish that a Member has fraudulently obtained duplicate Miles, they reserve the right to void the unduly credited Miles and to exclude the Member from the Program, to cancel any Rewards previously obtained but not yet redeemed and to request damages.
5.5 In the event that a Member is also registered on another Partner Airline's loyalty program and has earned Miles that have been credited to the MilleMiglia Program, under no circumstances can these Miles be transferred from the MilleMiglia Program and credited to the Partner Airline's loyalty program and/or vice versa.
5.6 Any tickets purchased but not used are not eligible for Miles. Miles due for using air transport services are credited to the Member's account only after the flights have been actually taken.
5.7 Any flights purchased by Members but used by others are not eligible for Miles.
5.8 The Promoters reserve the right to undertake promotional initiatives or enter into specific agreements through which Miles can be awarded on different grounds and in addition to those provided for in these Regulations. Any such initiatives will be communicated on the website www.alitalia.com and/or in the Program Communications.
5.9 Miles obtained after using Commercial Partner services or products are governed by the rules communicated by these Partners, which are usually posted on their websites (see the links in Appendix A).
5.10 Miles cannot be earned from flights taken as Rewards.
5.11 Miles may not be earned on certain special fares and/or booking classes on the Airline's flights and/or Promoters' services and products and/or of Partner services or products with particularly discounted rates/prices. The Promoters do, however, reserve the right to attribute Miles for these special rates/prices during specific promotional campaigns, of which Members will be suitably notified.
5.12 Benefits associated with Membership of the Exclusive Clubs cannot be claimed and Miles cannot be earned from flights that are free of charge or with discounts of over 40% on the applicable fare (excluding taxes and surcharges) and/or identified by discount codes ID and AD. Any Miles credited from these flights will be canceled.
5.13 Miles will not be credited for flights taken on airlines that are not Program Partners, even if originally booked through the Airline or for a ticket issued for the Airline. However, if one of the Airline's flights is canceled within 36 hours of departure and the flight is rebooked with an airline that is not a Program Partner, the Member will still be entitled to earn Miles for that flight.
5.14 Charter flights are not eligible for Miles.
5.15 Program Partners are the only parties responsible for the conditions for awarding Miles, following the use of their services or the purchase of their products and the related credit. Members who wish to use Partner services or products are required to check current applicable conditions with the Partners. The Promoters assume no liability for services or products offered by its Partners. Any related complaints must be addressed directly to those Partners.
5.16 Miles cannot be traded by Members nor converted into cash. The brokering of the purchase or sale of miles, transfers of miles and purchases of miles if not expressly specified in the Program terms and conditions published on the website www.alitalia.com and/or in the Program Communications are also forbidden.
In this regard, in order for Members to achieve the number of Miles required to obtain the Program Rewards, Members who have duly registered in the Program may buy, give or transfer Miles for themselves or for other registered Members by going to the MilleMiglia section of the website www.alitalia.com, where they will have access to the portal of Points International Ltd., which is a company authorized by the Promoters, by specific agreement, to manage the service for buying/transferring Miles. The headquarters of this Company are in the Province of Ontario, Canada (hereinafter referred to as "Points.com").
5.17 Miles earned by Members are detailed on their statements, which can be viewed on the website www.alitalia.com. Members are responsible for checking their own statements and any complaints will be accepted only if they refer to activities in the month prior to the date of the complaint. The statement is considered to have been approved one month after the last activity. In any event, the Promotors retain the right to not award Miles or to cancel any Miles mistakenly credited at any time.
5.18 In the event of a free upgrade to a superior class, awarded by the Airline or one of the Partner Airlines for operational reasons, Members will be credited for the Miles according to the travel class shown on the ticket rather than the class actually flown.
5.19 After a twenty-four (24) month period, during which the Member has not carried out any activities that earn Miles, the Miles are deemed to have expired and the Promoters will cancel the expired Miles on the Member's account. Members are responsible for checking the expiration date of their own Miles. The Promoters are not required to communicate the cancellation of Miles pursuant to the above provisions.
5.20 If no activity is recorded on the Member's Card for five years following the opening of the account, the Promoters reserve the right to cancel the Member's account. The Member will in any event be entitled to register once again on the MilleMiglia Program at any time.
5.21 This rewards Program enables Miles to be earned until December 31, 2017. Rewards may be claimed by Members until January 31, 2018 and will be awarded to the rightful owner at the same time, with the exception of Rewards that must be delivered to the Member's home, in which case the regulations specified on the pages relating to such initiatives on the website www.alitalia.com and on millemigliagallery.com will apply.

6.3 Each Member may also, as a parent, have more than one child linked to their account.

It can take up to 30 days to assign the child's identification code and activate the program in the system while the necessary checks are carried out. Where the email address provided by the Member at the time of registration with the initiative is different from the address held in the Member database, the latest email address provided will replace the previous address. The new email address will be used for all future communications from Promoters.
6.5 The Miles that the child earns for each single flight will only be credited to the account of the parent (Member) that the child is linked with, and only for flights taken after the identification code assigned to the child has been provided, and according to the MilleMiglia Program regulations in force at the time of the flight, up to a maximum of 100% of the Miles flown (= base Miles), even if the fare has a higher mileage value. Miles cannot be earned for flights taken by children with promotional fares that earn up to 100 Miles.
6.6 The Miles earned with the flights taken by children cannot be used to renew or gain access to the Exclusive Clubs.
6.7 Parents cannot earn promotional Miles on flights flown by the child. The child's flight activities are not included in any promotional initiatives proposed or launched by the MilleMiglia Program and/or by the Promoters unless otherwise expressly stated.
6.8 Miles are credited to the parent's account whether the child flies unaccompanied, with the parent or with a third party. If Miles are not credited, a Crediting of Missing Miles may be requested, as provided for in these Regulations.
6.9 Once the child turns 14 years of age, the child's link to the parent's account will automatically end. For the first activity, the parent or person with parental authority may register the child on the Program by providing the child's identification code. From then on, the child's identification code will become his or her personal MilleMiglia code and all miles will be credited directly to his or her account.
6.10 For those under 18 years old, registering for the MilleMiglia Program and providing personal data is subject to the consent and responsibility of parents or those with the relevant authority.

Changes shall be made in return for a cash fee or a deduction in Miles (the relevant amount can be found on the website www.alitalia.com) if required by the type of Reward. If a change in itinerary results in residual Miles, these will be lost and will under no circumstances be refunded to the Member. Any changes must be made by the MilleMiglia Customer Center; any changes made by other offices of the Promoters, the Airline or third-party travel agencies or other Airlines are not permitted.
7.18 Changes of itinerary and/or beneficiary of a partially used ticket may only be made upon payment of a fee as specified on the website www.alitalia.com, requesting the reimbursement of the miles from the unused return flight(s) and the issuing of a corresponding one-way Reward in accordance with the rewards table in effect for this ticket type.

7.22 The approximate value of individual Rewards shall be determined based on air fares in effect at the time the Rewards are issued.
B - UPGRADING SERVICE CLASS
7.23 As a Reward, Members can also request a travel class upgrade for tickets purchased for flights (individual legs) operated by the Airline.
