Quarterly Vault subscriptions renew automatically every three months from the date they were created. Annual Vault subscriptions renew automatically every 12 months/1 year from the date they were created. For example - If you purchase a quarterly subscription on March 10, your subscription will automatically renew on June 10, September 10, December 10, etc. If you purchase an annual subscription on March 10, it will renew one year later on March 10. Quarterly subscription signup deadlines are dates by which payment must be completed to receive the corresponding package. These deadline dates are NOT cancellation deadlines.

Because we produce the exact number of packages for the exact number of Vault members during a given quarter, any payment received after a payment deadline will not be accepted for the previous quarter. Instead, it will automatically be applied to the next quarter of membership.

For example, if you pay after January 31st, your payment will be credited to the next quarter, whose deadline would be April 30th.

Previous packages are not typically available; however, replacement components of previous packages will occasionally be made available in the Vault Novelties online store

The Vault Novelties shop is a password-protected, Platinum-Vault-members-only, arm of our online store where we will post exclusive products and releases for sale. The items in the Vault Novelties shop are limited and first-come-first-served. Once an item is out of stock, it is unlikely to ever become available again. The same policies for the Third Man Records online store apply to the Vault Novelties shop.

We want our fans to purchase our records for the same reasons we create our records: because we love vinyl, we love music, and we love art. We do monitor eBay, and if we happen across a Vault member who is selling records meant to be exclusive to Vault members, we are at liberty to permanently terminate that Vault member's subscription.

We hope that the common interest Vault members share with one another translates into positive interactions and a good time had by all. If you are experiencing harassment by another Vault member, please contact Screenshots of interactions in question and a fair and detailed description of the incident/s will make it easier for us to address the issue.
