3.1. Sale of Products and Memberships

3.2. Placing an Order

To place an order for Product(s) and/or Membership, you will need to register for an account with us. You will need to provide some personal information on registering—please see our Privacy Policy for information on how we use your information. If any problems arise with your order, or with the shipping address or Payment Method (as defined below) associated with your Membership, and THIEVES is unable to resolve the problem, we may notify you via email using the email address associated with your Membership. It is important that you keep your information current with an accurate email address that you regularly check. If problems arise with your order that we cannot resolve, your order may be cancelled and we may not be able to deliver future Products until the problem has been resolved.

3.3. Product and Membership Pricing

Pricing for Products and Memberships (including any applicable shipping and handling fees) can be found on the THIEVES Services. The price that we will charge you for the Products and Memberships depends on the Membership you choose, including the numbers of Products you select for each box (each, a “Box”). The price that we will charge you for the Products and Membership will be the price as posted on the THIEVES Services on the date you first sign-up for a Membership, less any discounts or promotional offers. We reserve the right to change prices for Products and Memberships at any time (without notice to you), and, unless otherwise required by applicable law, we do not provide price protection or refunds in the event of promotions or price decreases. Unless otherwise stated, all prices quoted are in Australian dollars and where applicable, inclusive of all GST (as that term is defined in A New Tax System (Goods and Services Tax) Act 1999 (Cth)).

3.4. Trials and Promotions

Your Membership may (at THIEVES’s option) start with a promotional trial period, allowing you to receive your first shipment at a reduced price or to otherwise receive trial Product(s) at a reduced price as compared with your Membership Fee (“Trial”). You may also choose to add additional Products to your Box on a one-time or recurring basis (“Add-On Products”). During the Trial period, your Payment Method (as defined below) will be charged for only the Trial price and shipping and taxes, if applicable and any Add-On Products selected. For combinations with other promotions and offers, restrictions may apply. THIEVES reserves the right, in its sole, reasonable discretion, to determine your Trial eligibility (for instance, to include only new customers or to limit promotional offers to one per household).

Thereafter, you will receive full-size Products shipped regularly based on the Membership and/or Products you choose at the time you signed up for the Trial (each a “Restock Box”). THIEVES will bill your credit card, debit card, or other THIEVES-accepted payment method (“Payment Method”) for the applicable Restock Box -- based on the Product and Membership type and frequency you selected, and any Add-On Products you select for each Box -- at the end of the Trial period, unless you cancel your Membership prior to the end of the Trial period in accordance with Section 4.3.

To view the specific details of your Membership, including frequency of shipments and next ship date, visit our website and click the ‘Your Account’ page. We may authorize your Payment Method through various methods, including authorizing it for up to approximately one (1) month of service as soon as you register. In some instances, your available balance or credit limit may be reduced to reflect the authorization during your Trial period. You will not receive a notice from us that your promotional (reduced Trial) pricing has ended. THIEVES reserves the right, in its absolute discretion, to withdraw or modify any Product, Membership, Trial or other offer or promotion at any time without prior notice and with no liability, where it is lawful to do so. Any and all Products, Memberships, offers or promotions advertised on the THIEVES Services are void where prohibited, and are subject to the posting of any official rules to such offers or promotions.

3.5. Refunds

If you are dissatisfied with any of our Products for any reason, we will refund the amount paid for the Product(s) in your most recent delivery (if you received a discount, then the amount we will refund is the discounted price) if you provide notice to us as described below. Refund requests must be made directly to us at hello@thieves.com within 30 days of the date of shipment by THIEVES. If we ask you to do so, you must return the Product(s) in accordance with the instructions which we give you. We are not liable for Products that you return to us that are damaged or lost in transit to THIEVES, so we advise you to return your Product(s) using a tracked delivery method. Promptly following THIEVES’S receipt of your request (typically within five (5) business days), or, if applicable, promptly following return of your Product(s), THIEVES will credit the amount paid for the returned Product(s) (less any shipping and handling costs/fees related to the original purchase, which are non-refundable) to the Payment Method you used to make the original purchase. Notwithstanding the foregoing, THIEVES does not control when a specific Payment Method company processes a chargeback transaction. You are responsible for contacting your Payment Method company if you have questions about the status of the chargeback.

We will not provide a refund for a request that is received by THIEVES more than 30 days after the date of original shipment. We also do not provide a refund for returned Products that are damaged due to misuse, lack of care, mishandling, accident, abuse or other abnormal use.

Our goods come with guarantees that cannot be excluded under certain laws. The benefits and limitations set out above are in addition to all other rights and remedies that you have under applicable law and do not limit, exclude or restrict your rights which cannot be limited, excluded or restricted under applicable law, including the Australian Consumer Law contained in the Competition and Consumer Act 2010 (Cth).


4.1. Recurring Membership; Automatic Renewal


THIEVES will automatically renew your Membership and charge your Payment Method depending on the available Membership and/or Restock Box shipping frequency chosen by you, unless we or you cancel your Membership in accordance with these Terms.

Your Payment Method will be charged at least one full business day prior to your next Box shipping date. We will charge your Payment Method with the applicable recurring cost of your Restock Box, and any Add-On Products, excluding any Products you ‘snooze’ or remove in accordance with these Terms, plus any shipping and handling costs and sales or similar taxes that may be charged with your Membership. You authorize this renewal by agreeing to the automatic renewal of your Membership and these Terms during the Member sign-up process.

To avoid being charged, you must cancel your Membership in accordance with Section 4.3. We will continue to bill your Payment Method on a recurring basis (depending on the Membership and Box shipping frequency selected) until you cancel.

4.2. Pausing and Resuming Products; Discontinuing Products

Your ability to pause Products THIEVES offers its members the ability to temporarily pause (or ‘snooze’) any one or more Products included in their Memberships (“Pause Period”)—you can do this by logging into your account and visiting the ‘My THIEVES’ pages. During the Pause Period, Members will remain active Members, but they will not receive the Products which they have paused in their next delivery of a Restock Box. During the Pause Period, Members will continue to receive communications from THIEVES via email, and continue to receive (and be charged for) the delivery of any Restock Boxes (with the exception of the paused Product(s).

The amount we charge your Payment Method will be reduced, for your next Restock Box, to reflect the fact that we will not be delivering the paused Product(s). If you are entitled to a discount, based on the number of Product(s) in your Restock Box, under a THIEVES promotion, then that discount will be recalculated for your next delivery, based on the number of Products in your Restock Box, excluding the paused Product(s).

Requests to pause a Product must be received at least five full working days prior to your next shipping date to take effect for that delivery. Pause requests received by THIEVES through other channels (for example, by email to hello@thieves.com) may take up to five (5) days to process. Otherwise, that request will take effect on the following delivery.

Following the delivery for which you paused a Product, the Pause Period will end and the Product(s) that you paused will be included in subsequent deliveries of your Restock Box (unless you pause it again or permanently remove it in accordance with these Terms). You may email any questions about the Pause Period to us at hello@thieves.com.

Our right to pause or discontinue products. 

From time to time, we may pause a Product included in your Restock Box—for example if there is no availability of that Product at the time of shipping. We may permanently discontinue Products included in your Membership from time to time. If this applies to you, then we will send you an email, using the email address we hold for you. Your Payment Method will not be charged for Products which are not included in your Restock Box, either because we have paused them or because they have been discontinued.

4.3. Membership Cancellation or Modifications

Cancellation by Us

We may cancel your Membership at any time if you do not make any payment to us when it is due and you still do not make payment within thirty (30) days of us reminding you that payment is due. We reserve the right to not ship any Products or Box to you unless your payment for those Products, or that Box, has cleared.

We may also cancel your Membership at any time if any of the following conditions are met: (a) if you do not, within a reasonable time of us asking for it, provide us with information that is necessary for us to provide the Product(s), for example, your postal address; (b) if you do not, within a reasonable time, allow us to deliver the Product(s) to you; or (c) if we suspect that a purchase was fraudulently made or an account was fraudulently set up.

Cancellation or modification by You

You may cancel or modify your Membership at any time by logging on to your account page on the THIEVES website. To cancel or modify a Membership, please log in to your account and select the ‘Membership Options’ link at the bottom of the page, then follow instructions towards cancellation or modification. Cancellation or modification requests submitted in this manner must be received at least three full business days prior to your next shipping date to avoid being charged for that shipment. Cancellation or modification requests received after that shall take effect the following month. Cancellation or modification requests received by THIEVES through other channels may take up to five (5) business days to process—you may be charged for your next shipment if your cancellation request is not received in time for processing before your next shipping date. If you have any problems, please email us at hello@thieves.com

If you cancel or modify your Membership, you will enjoy your Membership benefits until the end of the then-current Membership term for which you have paid. To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, you will not be eligible for a prorated refund of any portion of the Membership Fees paid for any unused days of the then-current Membership term.
