Your membership in the Programme entitles you to use your Karen Millen Black VIP Number at participating stores, details of which can be found here and at the website www.karenmillen.com.au. Applying for, or using, a Karen Millen Black Account will constitute acceptance of these Terms. You must therefore read them carefully.
All Programme applicants must be individuals aged 16 years or older, reside within Australia or New Zealand and must complete an application in-store or available online at https://www.karenmillen.com.au/pws/secure/ManageAccount.ice?secure_from=login. We may approve your application at our absolute discretion, and if approved we will activate your Karen Millen Black account and you will become a member ('Member'). All Members must include within their application a valid email address online at www.karenmillen.com.au in order to register. Any change of email address must be notified to us. We may refuse an application at our absolute discretion. Members will be able to update their personal details online at www.karenmillen.com.au.
Once you have been approved as a Karen Millen Black Member, you will be sent a VIP number which will be used to identify you in-store. We reserve the right to suspend or to terminate any Member's Programme account, if in our sole discretion we consider that the Member has breached the Terms, if the Member has supplied false or misleading information, if we consider that the Member has acted improperly or in an abusive, defamatory, criminal, or offensive way to any other Member or to our staff, or if it is believed that the Programme and the products and services available through it are being misused. Such misuse shall include but will not be limited to the purchase of products through the Programme for resale purposes.
You cannot transfer your Karen Millen Black membership or any of the stored points on your account to any other person. The Programme is only for personal, household and consumer use, points can only be earned, held or redeemed as set out in these Terms, or in the terms relating to any promotions and point offers related to the Programme, and may not be earned, held or redeemed in any other way.
Members will accumulate points on their Karen Millen Black account when they make qualifying Karen Millen purchases. As a Karen Millen Black Member you will automatically earn 1 point for every AUD $1 you spend in-store and online. At the end of each season (“Qualifying Accumulation Period”), any points accrued on your Karen Millen Black account will be converted into a reward voucher redeemable in participating stores.
There are two Accumulation Periods per calendar year:

  • “Autumn/Winter” where you earn points between 1 January and 30 June inclusive.
  • “Spring/Summer” where you earn points between 1 July and 31 December inclusive.

The limit of our liability under these Terms will be exclusively to a Member who suffers a direct loss as a result of our breach of these Terms and in those circumstances our sole liability will be to credit to the relevant Members Programme account such points as may have been wrongly deducted or should have been credited but were not. Nothing in these Terms shall operate to limit any liability we may have for death, personal injury or fraud and these Terms shall prevail in the event of any conflict or inconsistency with any other communications, including advertising or promotional materials.
