  4. We may change, enhance or reduce benefits at any time. We may also impose requirements or restrictions on the use of benefits. Current information is set out on MarbellaBuddies. If you do not accept any amendments, you may terminate your membership by writing to MarbellaBuddies. We think that this would be unnecessary mean to us
