Registered members are responsible for: (1) choosing a robust and secure password and maintaining the secrecy of such password; (2) all activities that occur on your account; and (3) notifying us of any unauthorised use of your password.

If a TLC is lost or the holder thinks an unauthorised person has become aware of any security code, password or account number, they should contact our Customer Services team by telephone on 01 2476126 or email at customerservice@tjxeurope.com. We shall not be responsible in any way for any losses arising from the unauthorised use of a password or your account as a result of your negligent act or omission. We may refuse an application for membership of the Programme for any reason.

11. The TLC is not transferrable and cannot be copied. It can only be used by the member who is named and registered for the TLC. TLCs shall remain our property at all times and we may, at our sole discretion, with no notice, ask that you return or destroy the TLC. It is your responsibility to notify us of any loss or theft of a TLC by contacting our Customer Services team by telephone on 01 2476126 or email at customerservice@tjxeurope.com.

The TLC and/or your online account does not constitute proof of purchase of goods purchased in store or online.

13. You are only entitled to one (1) TLC per person. If we identify that you hold two (2) or more TLCs, we may merge them into one account at our discretion.

14. To make a qualifying purchase under the Programme, you must present your registered TLC at the time of purchase at a Participating Store. You will then qualify for automatic entry for a Reward.
