PLEASE CAREFULLY READ THE FOLLOWING TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF USE BEFORE SUBSCRIBING TO THE TRADE MEMBER PLUS MEMBERSHIP SCHEME.

All members of the Trade Member PLUS membership scheme agree that their individual memberships are subject to the following Terms and Conditions (as may be amended or updated from time to time) and all other applicable law. If you do not agree to these Terms and Conditions, please do not subscribe to the scheme.

1.    THE MEMBERSHIP SCHEME

1.1    Specialist Supplements Ltd (a company registered in England and Wales under company number 04230904 and with its registered office at Unit 5, East Street Enterprise Park, Rhayader, Powys, LD6 5ER United Kingdom) (“Specialist Supplements”), operates the optional membership scheme Trade Member PLUS (the "Membership Scheme") for subscribed trade customers ("Members").

1.2    In consideration of £8 (plus VAT for UK and EU customers) per month (the "Membership Fee"), Members shall be provided with:

(a)    five per cent (5%) off product orders (except where a discount of equivalent or higher value has already been applied); and

(b)    reward points on every order placed (based on the order sub-total); and

(c)    a private label rights article ("PLR article") (on a topic related to supplements and/or the natural health industry), at a frequency of twice per month by email; and

(d)    twenty-five per cent (25%) off marketing services (an unlimited use discount code will be emailed at a frequency of once per month for use during that month); and

(e)    use of the Multi-Channel Order Import System; and

(f)    use of the Integrated Ordering System (API),

together the "Membership Benefits", for the duration of the membership (the "Term").

1.3    Specialist Supplements makes no representations or guarantees to Members as to the effectiveness or otherwise of the Membership Benefits, particularly (but without limitation) in terms of any increases in website traffic, sales and/or income. 

2.    MEMBER RESPONSIBILITIES

2.1    Members acknowledge that Specialist Supplements' ability to provide the Membership Benefits to them is dependent upon the full and timely co-operation of the Members (which the Members agree to provide), as well as the accuracy and completeness of any information Members provide to Specialist Supplements.

2.2    Accordingly (and without limitation), Members shall provide Specialist Supplements with an accurate and up-to-date email address at all times, for the purposes of providing the Membership Benefits to the Members for the Term. The Members acknowledge that, should they unsubscribe from the Specialist Supplements mailing list at any time, they may not receive the Membership Benefits as a result. Specialist Supplements also reserves the right (at their sole discretion) to cancel the Member's membership upon the latter unsubscribing.

2.3    Members are ultimately responsible for their use of the PLR articles and, to avoid doubt, Members bear full responsibility for the legality of all content on their websites, as well as on or in any blogs, emails, advertising literature or other materials or media where the PLR articles may be reproduced. Specialist Supplements accepts no liability for the use or otherwise of the PLR articles.

2.4    The PLR articles are provided by Specialist Supplements to the Members on an 'as is' basis. Members can use these articles as they see fit (including, without limitation, publishing them without amendment). However, Members are strongly encouraged to use the articles as a starting point for their own unique content, changing them as they see fit and according to their specific requirements, target market, target keywords etc for maximum SEO effect and benefit.

2.5    Members acknowledge and agree that the Membership Benefits referred to at clause 1.2 are for personal use only and are non-transferable.

3.    CHARGES AND PAYMENT

3.1    In advance of joining the Membership Scheme, Members shall have paid a minimum of six (6) months' Membership Fee. Members also have the option to purchase twelve months' membership in advance, in which case that Member shall receive two (2) months' membership free.

3.2    At the end of the six (6) or fourteen (14) months (as the case may be) referred to in clause 3.1, it is the Member's responsibility to re-subscribe for a further block, should they wish.

3.3    The Members acknowledge that, should they wish to use the Integrated Ordering System (API), there may be a fee (to be quoted for at the time) for installation of the system on their Opencart website.

4.    WARRANTIES

These Terms and Conditions set out the full extent of Specialist Supplements’ obligations and liabilities in respect of the Membership Scheme. All conditions, warranties or other terms concerning the Membership Scheme which might otherwise be implied into these Terms and Conditions or any collateral contract (whether by statute or otherwise) are hereby expressly excluded.

5.    LIMITATION OF REMEDIES AND LIABILITY

5.1    Nothing in these Terms and Conditions shall operate to exclude or limit either Specialist Supplements' or any Member's liability for anything which cannot be excluded or limited under applicable law.

5.2    Neither party shall be liable to the other for any loss of profit, anticipated profits, revenues, anticipated savings, goodwill or business opportunity, or for any indirect or consequential loss or damage.

5.3    Subject to clause 5.1, each party's aggregate liability in respect of claims based on events in any calendar year arising out of or in connection with these Terms and Conditions or any collateral contract, whether in contract or tort (including negligence) or otherwise, shall in no circumstances exceed one (1) month's Membership Fee.

6.    TERM AND TERMINATION

6.1    In respect of Specialist Supplements and individual Members, these Terms and Conditions shall commence upon the payment of the six (6) or twelve (12) months' Membership Fee (as the case may be) in accordance with clause 3.1, and shall continue until such time as they are terminated in accordance with clause 6.2.

6.2    These Terms and Conditions (and therefore the Member's inclusion in the Membership Scheme) shall terminate automatically upon:

(a)    the expiry of the six (6) or fourteen (14) month membership period purchased by the Member; or

(b)    Specialist Supplements giving notice to the Member at any time and for any reason that their membership has been withdrawn, such notice to have immediate effect unless specified otherwise therein PROVIDED THAT the Member shall receive the PLR articles and marketing services discount associated with their period of membership,

save for clauses 3 (Charges and payment), 4 (Warranties) and 5 (Limitation of remedies and liability), which shall survive termination or expiry of these Terms and Conditions for any reason.

6.3    Specialist Supplements shall bear no liability whatsoever for any decision to terminate the Member's membership in accordance with clause 6.2(b), save that a refund shall be made to the Member in respect of any unexpired portion of the six (6) or twelve (12) month membership period purchased by the Member.
