- Your Order for the Services is an offer by you to enter into a Subscription with us. We will acknowledge your e-mail promptly but please note that our acknowledgement does not constitute acceptance of your offer.

Please note that:
- Following conclusion of your Order in accordance with clause 2, we shall make the Services available to you.
- Please note that we make Toys available for hire pursuant to the Services as a dealer only. We are neither the manufacturer nor producer of any Toys nor are we supplying Toys under our own name, brand or trade mark. Availability of Toys

aggregate Value equal to the Subscription Value. By way of example only:
- if your Subscription Value is 100 Whirli Tokens then you are entitled to have in your possession at any point in time during the Term Hire Toys which, in aggregate, have a Value of 100 Whirli Tokens; and

If you have a yearly or a half-yearly Subscription:
- we will email you 14 days before the end of the Initial Term and each Renewal Period (as applicable) and during this 14-day period before the start of the next Renewal Period you may change the Subscription Value to a different value, and such change will take effect at the start of the next Renewal Period; and
- at any time during the Initial Term or any Renewal Period you may elect to increase the Subscription Value of your Subscription, and shall promptly pay to us a pro-rate amount of the Charges to reflect the increased Subscription Value for the remainder of the Initial Term or Renewal Period (as applicable). For the avoidance of doubt, you may not decrease the Subscription Value during any Initial Term or Renewal Period.
- If the reduction in Subscription Value under clause 3.4 or 3.5.1 results in the Value of the Hired Toys at that point in time exceeding the Subscription Value, then: (a) you are not entitled to any hire any further Toys as part of your Subscription until you have returned Hired Toys to us in accordance with clauses 3.15 and 3.17 with sufficient aggregate Value to make further Toys available under your revised Subscription Value; and (b) you shall promptly return Hired Toys to us in accordance with clauses 3.15 and 3.17 with sufficient aggregate Value so that the retained Hired Toys have an aggregate Value of no greater than the revised Subscription Value.
- You cannot order additional Hired Toys if the aggregate Value of the Hired Toys ordered and the Hired Toys in your possession exceed the Subscription Value without you also agreeing to return Hired Toys to us with an aggregate Value that will reduce the aggregate Value of the Hired Toys to no greater than the Subscription Value.

Save for the foregoing, there is no limit on the number of times that you can return Toys and order new Toys during the Term.
- We will always make available to you as part of the Services a reasonable range of Toys at any point in time, but please note that we cannot guarantee that any particular Toy will be available as part of your Subscription or that we will have any particular Toy in stock at the point in time that you want to hire such Toy.

Other Important Terms
- These Terms are made between you and us and no other person other than our Affiliates shall have any rights to enforce any of its terms, whether under the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 or otherwise.
- Each clause of these Terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful or unenforceable, the remaining clauses will remain in full force and effect.
- If we fail to insist that you perform any of your obligations under these Terms, or if we do not enforce our rights against you, or if we delay in doing so, that will not mean that we have waived our rights against you and will not mean that you do not have to comply with those obligations. If we do waive a default by you, we will only do so in writing, and that will not mean that we will automatically waive any later default by you.

- These Terms are governed by English law. This means that your access to and use of the Services, and any dispute or claim arising out of or in connection therewith (including non-contractual disputes or claims) will be governed by English law.
- You can bring proceedings in respect of these Terms in the English courts. However, as a consumer, if you live in another European Union member state you can bring legal proceedings in respect of these Terms in either the English courts or the courts of that member state.
As a consumer, if you are resident in the European Union and we direct the Services to the member state in which you are resident, you will benefit from any mandatory provisions of the law of the country in which you are resident. Nothing in these Terms, including clause 20.1, affects your rights as a consumer to rely on such mandatory provisions of local law.
