  1. In these Terms & Conditions of Trading, ‘Variety’ or ‘we/our’ means Variety Christmas Savings Club Ltd; and ‘Agent’ means any person ordering for themselves and/or their named customer(s). Variety reserves the right to request from or to obtain electronically in respect of any Agent such proof of identification, including age, as Variety may reasonably require.
  2. Variety do not EMPLOY, APPOINT or NOMINATE any Agent. All Agents are appointed by their own customers to act on their behalf. The Agent is not authorised to act on behalf of Variety.

  3. Variety will provide the Agent with brochures, order forms, payment cards, accounts records and all stationery it deems necessary to run the Agency.
  4. The order forms must be completed by the customer and signed. After checking that they are complete, the Agent should send them to Variety. Variety will print a savings club card for each customer they receive an order form for, and send these back to the Agent. These cards must be given to the customers, and on receipt of each payment the Agent must enter the amount paid on the savings club card and initial it. The card is to be kept by the customer as a receipt of payment. The Agent must also make each customer aware of the Customers Terms & Conditions of Sale which are printed on the order form and on the savings club card.
  5. The Agent is responsible for the safety and security of all customers’ payments until sent to Variety. All customers’ payments shall be sent to Variety without delay; weekly, fortnightly or monthly. Proof of sending payment will be required should a dispute arise.

  11. Variety will deliver all the Vouchers and Gift Cards direct to the Agent when fully paid for by secure, insured delivery; e.g. Royal Mails Special Delivery Service. Upon receipt of the Vouchers and Gift Cards, the Agent will be responsible for their safety and security until they are given to their customers.
  12. Variety will ensure to give the Agent a percentage discount on all sales (hereafter known as ‘Commission’), as listed on the Agents Commission Rates pertaining at the time; providing that the final sales figure exceeds £2000 and that there has been no breach by the Agent of these Terms & Conditions of Trading.
  13. The Agent shall endeavour to have all their customers’ accounts fully paid and settled by the 1st November to avoid any delay in the despatch of all their Vouchers and Gift Cards.

    • Variety to disclose your customers’ personal details (such as their name, address and payments) to the Financial Services Compensation Scheme; and
    • Variety to receive any sum to which your customers are entitled from the Financial Services Compensation Scheme and thereafter apply such sum towards the fulfilment of their order.
  16. The Agent will indemnify Variety forthwith upon demand, and keep it indemnified against any loss, liability, damages, claims, costs and expenses whatsoever arising from a breach of these Terms & Conditions of Trading, including any demand from HM Revenue & Customs, or other competent authorised in connection with the Agency.
