At the end of the monthly subscription period, your monthly subscription will be automatically renewed and your payment for the following month will be automatically charged to the credit card you have provided to us as part of your account details. If you do not wish your monthly subscription to auto-renew, you may uncheck the auto-renew box on your Local Food Loop account page prior to the end of your current subscription term.

If your subscription lapses, we will notify you immediately. We may at our discretion provide a short grace period within which you may re-subscribe to your Premium Listing without losing your Premium Listing content or other account details.
  5. An internet connection is required to use and manage your Premium Listing. Without an internet connection, you will be unable to manage your Premium Listing, including your account details.
  6. Users of the Local Food Loop smartphone app and website also require an internet connection in order to view any of the digital content you may include in your Premium Listing(s).

  9. Area Supporter Subsidies: from time to time, third parties ("Area Supporters") may wholly or partly subsidise the cost of a Premium Listing subscription for account holders. The Listings and/or accounts that may be subsidised will be chosen at the sole discretion of the Area Supporter.

  12. Area Supporter subsidies offered as discounts will be applied only to future subscription renewals. There will be no retrospective Area Supporter discounts applied to Premium Listings.
  13. If you choose to take up an offer of an Area Supporter subsidy and you are part-way through a pre-paid Premium Listing subscription period, the Area Supporter subsidy will be carried forward and applied to your next subscription purchase. This applies equally to monthly and annual subscriptions.
  14. We will also notify you by email when an Area Supporter subsidy is about to expire so that any changes to the price of your upcoming subscription renewal are clearly explained and expected.
