However, in the event that you wish to skip the relevant month and you notify us by email before the 21st day of that month, we may agree to allow you to skip that month at our discretion. If that occurs, we will (subject to clause 4d if the tasters have already been sent to you) refund the Fee if already charged and will otherwise not charge the Fee for that month; and

    4. Notwithstanding any other part of this clause 4, if we inadvertently or otherwise charge you the Fee for a month that you have elected to skip, we will incur no liability other than to refund the Fee to you, and even then, if the whisky tasters for that month have or are inadvertently sent to you, only if you return them to us unopened and unbroken.
  5. Pause of Membership


    1. If you are aware that you do not wish to receive the tasters for between two and three consecutive months, you may, prior to the 14th day of the first of those consecutive months, login to our website using the login details that we will provide when you join the Whisky Loot Program, and elect to “pause” your membership for up to three months on the online dashboard;

However, you will not generally be able to do so in relation to a given month later than the 14th day of that month. After the 14th day of any given month, if you wish to resume your membership and receive the tasters for that month, you may submit an email request to us, which we may allow or refuse in our absolute discretion;

    4. Notwithstanding any other part of this clause 5, if we inadvertently charge you the Fee for a month in which you have paused your membership, we will incur no liability other than to refund the Fee to you, and even then, if the whisky tasters for that month have or are inadvertently sent to you, only if you return them unopened and unbroken; and

    5. We will not incur any liability if we inadvertently fail to send you the tasters for a month in which you elected to pause your membership and then choose to resume your membership, except in relation to the refund of the Fee for that month if we have charged you that Fee.

If you purchase a three, six or twelve month membership to the Whisky Loot Program for somebody else, we will provide login details to that person using the email address that you provide for them. This will allow the gift recipient to skip a month or pause their membership as provided for in clauses 4 and 5, and on the same terms as provided in clauses 4 and 5, except that where those clauses provide for a refund or for the Fee not to be charged in a particular month, rather than a refund being available, if the recipient would otherwise have been entitled to a refund, he or she will instead be entitled to an additional month of tasters, and where tasters are not sent to the recipient because of his or her election in a given month, his or her membership will be extended by a corresponding month;

    4. You may not purchase a three, six or twelve month membership to the Whisky Loot program unless you provide evidence that both you and recipient of the tasters are above the age of 18 (and that the recipient meets any other legal requirement in the jurisdiction in which he or she is located).

  7. Cancellation of Membership

    1. Subject to clause 6, you may cancel your membership at any time by logging in our website and electing to cancel your membership using the online dashboard; and
    2. If you cancel your membership and we inadvertently charge you the Fee in the following month or in any later months, you will have no claim against us except for the refund of the Fee, and even then, only if you return any products that we inadvertently send you unopened and undamaged.
