Membership Terms and Conditions
Access to the website and other membership privileges implies acceptance of these membership terms and conditions. Terms and conditions may be updated from time to time and will apply from the date of publication on the members web pages. Changes will be notified in the members email newsletter and the definitive list will be available on the members website.
Membership and Subscriptions
Access to the website and other privileges will be dependent on payment of the applicable membership subscription at the time of subscribing. Individual membership and associate membership will reside with the individual, not the organisation. Corporate membership and associate membership will reside with the organisation.
Membership may be cancelled by Members/Associates at any time and Members/Associates understand that no refund of subscriptions will be given in any circumstances.
Access and privileges may be withdrawn from Members/Associates who:
- break these terms and conditions
- bring the Forum into disrepute
Bookings on any events for new members and renewing members are provisional until such times as payment is made in full.
All booking less that £750 (excluding VAT) may be subject to an administration fee of £50 + VAT. The latter fee is deductable for payments made within the payment terms listed.
Privacy and Confidentiality
Members/Associates undertake to respect the privacy of information on the website.
In particular where Members' contact details are made available to other members, this is to enable networking and sharing of information between members. Under no circumstances are they to be used by Members or Associates, or made available by Members/Associates to to third parties, for mailing lists or other commercial purposes.
Information on the web is made available to Members/Associates and cannot therefore be regarded as confidential. Members/Associates undertake that all information they provide for the web is free from copyright, confidentiality or other restrictions that would prevent its publication on our website.
