Authorisation for a transaction may not be withdrawn (or revoked) by you after the time it is received.
However, the following transactions may be withdrawn if you or an additional Towah Club Account owner gives notice to the supplier (providing a copy of the notice to us):

ii. Direct debits if they are to occur after the date of the withdrawal. We may charge you a fee if a transaction is revoked by you under this condition. Funds to cover the authorised transactions received by us will be paid over to the Towah Club Account immediately following the receipt by us of the instruction to make payment.
