(i) online using a credit or debit card via the cashless page of the Black Deer website either before or during the Event once you have created an online account (see paragraph 6 below), which will enable you to either: (a) make one off payment(s); or (b) make use of the so-called “auto top-up” function so that we can automatically credit your online account with a predetermined amount of £20 (as selected by you) when you run out of funds on your Wristband. This is triggered if your balance dips below £10. The top-up amount is set at £20 but can be turned on or off by the user.
