Registration and Passwords
Consumer Rights and Cancellation
Each Dream Whiskies VIP subscription is for these purposes a single order forming part of a regular delivery of services, so you can only cancel a subscription and receive a refund within fourteen days of first accessing the Dream Whiskies VIP membership pages on the Site. You can of course cancel your subscription at any time, but it is only if you do it within this initial fourteen day period after your initial subscription that you will be entitled to a refund (as required by UK legislation known as the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013).
To cancel your order, you must inform Dream Whiskies by email, giving us your name, address and subscription order reference. Any competition entries placed during the fourteen day period will be rendered void.
Dream Whiskies’ refunds policy is: if you cancel a subscription order within the fourteen-day cancellation period (see above), Dream Whiskies will refund you as soon as possible. Dream Whiskies will refund the price of the subscription in full. Dream Whiskies will refund the purchase price using the same method originally used by you to pay for your purchase.
Where a subscription has taken advantage of the 30-day free trial period, this will run concurrently with the 14-day cancellation period above. If subsequent to the 30-day free-trial period you decide to maintain a paid subscription, the 14-day cancellation period will be deemed to have expired during the initial 30-day free trial period and therefore you will not be entitled to any subsequent refunds.
