In these terms and conditions "TVSN" means TVSN Channel Pty. Ltd. (ABN 96 111 806 958) or its authorised representatives and "Licence to SHOP Program" means those arrangements by which a member may collect benefits by purchasing qualifying goods or services and thereby qualifies for awards under or in relation to these terms and conditions.

b. Membership of the Licence to SHOP Program is currently free (although TVSN reserves all rights to charge for membership in the future).

An individual who wishes to become a member of the Licence to SHOP Program can place orders for goods or services supplied or to be supplied by TVSN or on our behalf by approved third party suppliers (Product) in the ways provided for by TVSN and is legally bound by these terms and conditions as varied on from time to time.

Memberships are made available at TVSNís sole discretion and subject to these terms and conditions. Memberships are limited to one per individual and a maximum of four individuals per principal address. If TVSN become aware of an individual with more than a single membership, TVSN reserves the right to combine that individualís memberships into one single membership.
An individual's membership purchases must be linked to that individual's permitted payment method(s). However, more than two memberships linked to a single credit card or single cheque account may be deemed by TVSN as being a single member. Any single member, whether deemed or actual, may use multiple payment methods provided that they are currently permitted payment methods.
You must promptly notify TVSN immediately of any change of address or other contact details. In any event, TVSN is not liable for any delay in relation to communications, including but not limited to the sending or receiving voucher awards or for any unauthorised use of a membership or voucher claims or a member not otherwise receiving postal or email communications in a timely fashion or at all.
TVSN may cancel a membership in the Licence to SHOP program without notice for any reason including but not limited to, if the relevant member:
a. fails to comply with these membership terms and conditions; or
b. abuses any privilege accorded to the member under the Licence to SHOP program; or
c. through excessive, frivolous or mischievous action causes TVSN to credit awards or otherwise operate the memberís account to the detriment of TVSN; or
d. supplies any misleading information or makes any misrepresentations to TVSN in connection with the Licence to SHOP program, or does not use his or her membership for a period of 12 months, or dies, or becomes bankrupt.
A member may terminate membership in the Licence to SHOP Program at any time by giving written notice to the TVSN Customer Care Manager by emailing to email@example.com
a. at your request (including but not limited to in respect of reactivation of a membership, which reactivated membership is subject to these terms and conditions); or
b. as required or permitted by law; or
c. for our (or our affiliatesí) marketing purposes, provided that the information is used in anonymous and aggregated form.
Membership benefits are not transferable.
Any tax, liability, or duty of any kind arising from a member's participation in the Licence to SHOP program is the sole responsibility of the member.
2. Earning benefits
Licence to SHOP benefits, as amended from time to time, are detailed on our website (www.tvsn.com.au). Benefits will be credited to a Licence to SHOP account for purchases by the member of qualifying Product. Benefits may also be credited to a member's account for promotional and incentive programs offered on occasion. TVSN will determine which Product is qualifying Product and the benefits that will be credited to a members account for such purchases.
Benefits will be credited to the Licence to SHOP account only after full payment of the relevant transaction. Membership benefits will be deducted for products returned, refunded or cancelled. TVSN reserves the right to make any change regarding fair usage including but not restricted to, limiting the number of transactions any member may refund, cancel or return.
Benefits for part payment transactions will be credited on the full value of the order, from first part payment to completion of the final payment.
Benefits and the rights they confer cannot be sold, transferred, assigned or otherwise dealt with except in accordance with these terms and conditions. Benefits have no cash or monetary value.
3. ďAnniversary LetterĒ and voucher scheme
Periodically, TVSN will forward an "Anniversary Letter" to each Platinum for Life, Platinum, Gold, Silver and Bronze member setting out the membership level, vouchers credited and benefits available during the following 12 month period (being, together with the points system upon which they are currently calculated, collectively for convenience, the Scheme). TVSN reserves the right to alter or cancel the Scheme at any time without notice and without compensation save as expressly provided for under or in relation to these terms and conditions. TVSN will make available revised (current) versions of the relevant Scheme documentation both via its website(s) and, upon request, in printed form but TVSN is not otherwise obliged to notify members or third parties of variations or cancellation and is not liable in any way for failure to do so.
The "Anniversary Letter" as to a member's entitlement to claim a voucher value is conclusive in the absence of obvious error. In the event of a dispute about any details contained in the "Anniversary Letter", TVSNís decision in such dispute is final and binding.
A member who has received an "Anniversary Letter" on his or her membership account will have the relevant voucher value credited to their membership automatically by TVSN. For security reasons, the member must make purchases personally.
Vouchers will only be made available in the name of the memberís account.
The value of the voucher claimed will be deducted from the awarded voucher balance of the member's account, with the oldest voucher purchases being deducted first. The voucher may only be used for new purchases, and cannot be deducted from existing orders.
TVSN is not liable for any loss or theft of any voucher values. If TVSN agrees to replace a lost or stolen benefit, the member must comply with such conditions as TVSN imposes.
Voucher values must be redeemed within 60 days from the issuance of the "Anniversary Letter". TVSN is not liable for any voucher amount not being redeemed either within time or for any other reason whatsoever.
Refunds or credits for Product purchased through redemption of vouchers will be credited to the memberís account. Credited voucher values will only be available for 30 days from the date of TVSN processing the refund or credit transaction. Credits or refunds for voucher purchased Product will only be made a maximum of twice.
4. Other deductions of benefits
In addition to deductions for awards claimed, TVSN will deduct from the benefits balance in a Licence to SHOP member's account any benefits credited in error and any benefits relating to a transaction which is cancelled or reversed or where a refund is given.
Members may pay for Product and delivery charges by those means (including but not limited to credit cards, debit cards, cheques and money orders) which TVSN may permit, in its sole discretion, from time to time (permitted payment methods) and, subject always to TVSNís exercise of its overriding sole discretion to grant or withhold part payment facilities to a member, either in whole or in part.
If a member seeks to make a card payment in the full amount or against a first part payment, and the relevant card payment is rejected or declined for any reason, TVSN reserves its rights under these terms and conditions to reject the relevant order either in whole or in part.
If a member elects to pay by part payment, that member agrees to pay the full amount over the specified time frame as set out in the payment schedule on the Product receipt (unless the relevant ordered Product is validly returned under and in accordance with our Returns Policy). TVSN reserves the right to make any changes or place limitations regarding the number of part payment transactions a member may have "open" concurrently.
If a member uses part payment facility, a $2.20 fee (inclusive of GST) will be added to the first part payment. A member may only have one part payment item per order.
If a member defaults on a second or subsequent part payment and such payment made by card, TVSN will attempt to seek payment a second time. However, if the relevant card payment is declined on the second attempt, a fee of $4.95 (inclusive of GST) will be charged and the member be deemed in payment default.
If a member pays by cheque in full payment or against any part payment, and the cheque is dishonoured or otherwise does not clear, the member is deemed in default on payment.
If a member continues to be in default on payment, TVSN may refer the member's details to TVSN's debt collection agency. TVSN may also, at its sole discretion, immediately make a demand for payment of:
(i) the outstanding instalments that are currently due for payment;
(ii) any fees and charges relating to processing of the payment, including the declined part payment fee and part payment surcharge; and / or
(iii) any remaining unpaid amounts that would otherwise have become payable as future instalments.
Until the debt is paid in full, the member's account will remain on hold and no further orders will be taken.
In addition to TVSNís right under clause 5.7 above, if a member continues to be in default on payment, TVSN may, at its sole discretion add to the memberís account as a debt due and payable in addition to the then outstanding balance (i) the direct costs incurred by TVSN in engaging a debt collection agency to recover the debt, and (ii) accrued interest on the debt for each day it remains outstanding in an amount equal to the Commonwealth Bank of Australiaís then interest rate for unsecured business loans, and (iii) the amount of any reasonably incurred legal fees and associated costs incurred by TVSN in seeking to recover the debt.
TVSN reserves the right refuse to process a payment against a credit card after the second attempt (or in relation to a dishonoured or otherwise non-cleared cheque).
TVSN reserves the right to re-submit any late payment instalment at any time after any late payment or default. In the event that the full instalment of a late payment cannot be deducted, TVSN reserves the right to deduct any amount less than the value of the due amount until the debt is paid in full.
TVSN will not accept a payment by credit card if the credit card expires ahead of the last instalment payment date except in circumstances where the new expiry date is provided.
Notwithstanding clause 5.11 above, where a credit card expiry date has or is about to expire, we may attempt to calculate the new expiry date and continue to process the transaction.
