12.2 Monthly Subscriptions and Annual Subscriptions are collectively referred to as “Subscriptions”

12.3 Members who pay us a Monthly Subscription are “Monthly Members”, and Members who pay us an Annual Subscription are “Annual Members”. Monthly Members and Annual Members are collectively referred to as “Members”.

12.4 In exchange for paying their Subscriptions to Us, Members receive our content before any other Users; they have access to exclusive content and experiences stored within the Website (specifically, within a section of The Website called “Member Experiences”); and they are invited to enjoy welcome cocktails and assorted benefits (herein defined as “Member Perks”) from any restaurants, bars, event organisers or businesses partnered with Us and listed as such on The Website (herein known as our “Partners”).

12.5 We act merely as promoters of the exclusive offers and opportunities brought to Us by our Partners, and so cannot be held liable in any way for the failure of one or all of our Partners to deliver what has been offered to a Member within any part of The Nudge.

14. Membership Referrals

14.1 If an existing Member successfully refers 5 friends to Nudge Membership, they are entitled to receive a free Annual Membership of The Nudge.

14.3 A friend has NOT been referred to Nudge Membership if they simply start a Free Trial and then cancel it before it ends.

15.2 Monthly Members may terminate their Monthly Subscription at any time without cause, penalty or explanation by simply electing to so within their account settings.

15.3 Members who pay an Annual Subscription (Annual Members) are expressly requesting delivery of the Services on an annual basis.

15.5 We cannot, and do not, issue pro-rata reimbursements: Annual Memberships are cheaper because they last for a year.

15.6 We reserve the right to cancel the Membership of any Nudge Member, and withhold their access to Our Services, for any reason.
