You have the right to cancel the TOTUM platform registration (and any associated ISIC card) within fourteen (14) days of the completion of your TOTUM platform registration provided that during that period you have not used your TOTUM platform registration or ISIC card to obtain a discount or promotional offer. Details of how to cancel your TOTUM platform registration can be found on our FAQ.

4 // Warranties

You represent and warrant to us as follows:

  • You are a Student at the time of purchasing your TOTUM platform registration;
  • You intend to remain a Student for the period of duration of your TOTUM platform registration;
  • You are at least sixteen (16) years of age at the time you purchase the TOTUM platform registration.

Note that you do not need to be at an establishment whose students' union is affiliated to the NUS to purchase a TOTUM platform registration, provided that you are in fact a Student.

You represent and warrant to us that:

  • you have completed all the information given to us during the registration process truthfully and accurately; and
  • any supporting documentation you have supplied is accurate; and
  • you will not permit any third party to use your TOTUM platform registration to seek a discount or promotions offered by a Brand or for any other reason.

5 // Payment

The price of a TOTUM platform registration is indicated when you apply for a TOTUM platform registration.

The TOTUM card is issued with an ISIC card being printed on the reverse. There is no additional charge for issuing a TOTUM card with an ISIC card. However, while your TOTUM platform registration (and the accompanying TOTUM card) can be issued for longer than a year, the ISIC card can only be issued for a period of one year.

Payment in full is a condition precedent to your possession and use of the TOTUM platform registration. If you do not pay for your TOTUM platform registration, for example because your credit card payment is not honoured, we may cancel the TOTUM platform registration.

We may increase the price of TOTUM platform registration from time to time, but any change will not affect the price of any TOTUM platform registration you have already purchased, although the increased price will apply to any renewal of that TOTUM platform registration.

You have the right to cancel the TOTUM platform registration (and any associated ISIC card) within fourteen (14) days of the completion of your TOTUM platform registration provided that in that period you have not used your TOTUM platform registration or ISIC card to obtain a discount or promotional offer. Details of how to cancel your TOTUM platform registration can be found on our FAQ.

If we have already despatched a TOTUM card to you when you request a cancellation, you must return your unused TOTUM card to us before we refund to you the monies you have paid for the TOTUM platform registration. In such circumstances we shall deduct an administration charge of three pounds fifty pence (£3.50) from that refund.

Where you cancel your TOTUM platform registration, your ISIC card will also be cancelled.

Where you are a third party buying the TOTUM platform registration on behalf of another individual you confirm that you have brought these Terms and Conditions to the attention of that other individual and that the other individual has accepted these Terms and Conditions.

6 // Further Payment Provisions

You must pay us the monies and the delivery charges for the TOTUM platform registration as indicated during the registration process. You may effect payment by Visa or Mastercard. However, you shall remain liable for payment until we are in receipt of cleared funds.

Payment is due immediately upon registration.

You shall not be entitled to make any set-off or counterclaim or claim any lien in respect of any monies owed by you and you shall pay all amounts due pursuant to these Terms and Conditions without making a deduction of any kind.

Before you receive the physical TOTUM card, you must provide us with a photograph of yourself as indicated during the registration process. You must also promptly supply the supporting information requested during the registration process.

We will use our reasonable endeavours to despatch a physical TOTUM card (with an ISIC card on the reverse) to you within fourteen (14) days after you have:

  • paid us for the TOTUM platform registration;
  • fully and properly completed the registration process (whether physical or on-line);
  • supplied us with a complete address; and
  • supplied us with the required photograph.
    We are under no obligation to send you a physical TOTUM card until you have complied with the above.

7 // Cancellation of the TOTUM platform registration

We may cancel your TOTUM platform registration in the circumstances mentioned in these Terms and Conditions. We may cancel the TOTUM platform registration where you cease to be a Student. We may cancel your TOTUM platform registration if any of the warranties you have given in clause 4 are incorrect.

We may cancel your TOTUM platform registration if you breach any other provision of these Terms and Conditions (or any provision of the TOTUM website terms and conditions, a copy of which can be found here: www.totum.com/terms-of-service) and, in the case of a breach capable of being remedied, you do not remedy the breach within twenty-one (21) days of our requesting you to remedy the reach.

Your TOTUM card at all times remains our property. You have a licence to keep and use it for so long as the TOTUM card is not cancelled. When we cancel the TOTUM card, you must immediately return the TOTUM card to us to our registered office address which is given in clause 1. Your continued use of the TOTUM card may constitute a fraud.

For the avoidance of doubt, where we cancel your TOTUM platform registration, your ISIC card will also be cancelled.

8 // Replacement and Renewal

For details of how to replace your TOTUM card in these circumstances and for the associated charge for doing so, see our Frequently Asked Questions page.

You can renew your TOTUM platform registration at any time within thirty (30) days of the date of expiry of your existing TOTUM platform registration provided that:

  • You are a Student at the time of purchasing the renewal of your TOTUM platform registration;
  • You intend to remain a Student for the period of duration of your renewed TOTUM platform registration.

The TOTUM platform is designed to allow you to obtain access to discounts or promotions offered by Brands from time to time. The TOTUM card is personal and is not transferable.

We endeavour to ensure that every Brand accepts the TOTUM virtual ID on your mobile device as well as the TOTUM card, but do not guarantee that this will always be the case. Where we know that a Brand does not accept the TOTUM virtual ID on your mobile device, we will use reasonable endeavours to indicate that this is the case on our website here.

Any discount or promotion offered by a Brand is not guaranteed and may be varied by a Brand without notice at any time.

We are not responsible for the provision of any goods, discount, benefit or other service by a Brand.

You must show your physical TOTUM card or the TOTUM virtual ID on your mobile device to a Brand to receive the discount or promotion offered by the Brand. The TOTUM card is not designed to be used with mobile device app identification conglomerating services such as Stocard or Fidme.

The TOTUM platform registration is not a proof-of-age or proof-of-identity card.
