Terms and Conditions of Membership
1.1 This page (together with the documents referred to on it) tells you the terms and conditions on which we supply The Cocktail Card, and your membership (“membership”).

You should understand that by ordering a Cocktail Card, you agree to be bound by these terms and conditions.
1.2 You should print a copy of these terms and conditions for future reference.
1.4 We reserve the right to amend these terms and conditions at any time by giving you notice by posting the amended terms and conditions on our site. However, please note that you will be subject to the terms and conditions in force at the time that you ordered a Cocktail Card from us, unless any change to these terms and conditions is required to be made by law or governmental authority (in which case it will apply to orders previously placed by you).

You can contact us by emailing us at email@example.com Your membership may only expire at the end of the current term.
