OUR CONTRACT WITH YOU
How we will accept your order.
Our acceptance of your order will take place when we email you to accept it, at which point a contract will come into existence between you and us.
If we cannot accept your order.
If we are unable to accept your order, we will inform you of this in writing and will not charge you for the Membership, or we will immediately refund you if your payment has been processed. This might be because:
- of unexpected limits on our resources which we could not reasonably plan for;
- we have identified an error in the price or description of the Membership;
- we are unable to meet a delivery deadline we have specified; or
- for any other reason and at our absolute discretion.
If you have received the Membership as a gift, it is for your use only.
You are not able to gift or pass the Membership on, nor otherwise transfer any of the rights or entitlements of the Membership, to another person or business. We reserve the right to cancel the gifted Membership and withdraw access to the Membership to any third party who uses or attempts to use the gifted Membership.
PRICE AND PAYMENT
Where to find the price for the Membership.
The price of the Membership (which includes VAT) will be the price indicated on the order pages when you placed your order on our website or on any other website or platform which we may utilise to take and process orders. We use our best efforts to ensure that the price of the Membership advised to you is correct. However please see below for what happens if we discover an error in the price of the Membership you order.
We may offer Memberships at a reduced cost to people who fulfill particular criteria from time to time (reduced-cost Memberships). We are not obliged or obligated to offer reduced-cost Memberships to any particular Member or for any particular period of time, and we may discontinue the availability of reduced-cost Memberships at any time and at our absolute discretion. A reduced-cost Membership is only available to the Member who it has been offered to, and it is non-transferrable.
We will pass on changes in the rate of VAT.
If the rate of VAT changes between your order date and the date we supply the Membership, we will adjust the rate of VAT that you pay, unless you have already paid for the Membership in full before the change in the rate of VAT takes effect.
What happens if we got the price wrong.
It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, the Membership may be incorrectly priced on relevant order pages. We will normally check prices before making the Membership available for purchase. If, however, we discover that the Membership was incorrectly priced after accepting your order:
- where the correct price at your order date is less than our stated price at your order date, we will refund you the additional amount paid;
- if the correct price at your order date is higher than the price stated to you, we will contact you for your instructions as to whether to proceed with your order at the increased price and provide the Membership (which may involve us refunding the lower price you have paid, and you then re-purchasing the Membership for the correct price), or whether to cancel your order and issue a refund.
When you must pay and how you must pay.
We accept payment with debit and credit cards, and via Stripe. When purchasing the Membership, you must pay:
- at the time of ordering, if it is an annual payment for the Membership. By purchasing the Membership on an annual basis, you acknowledge and agree to being charged an ongoing recurring annual fee, which will be automatically deducted from your chosen credit card, debit card or bank account. This ongoing annual fee will continue to be deducted, without further consent from you or notice from us, until such time as you or we cancel the contract between us.
- on the monthly billing date as advised to you in the email acceptance of your order, if the Membership is paid for on a monthly basis. By purchasing the Membership on a monthly basis, you acknowledge and agree to being charged an ongoing recurring monthly fee, which will be automatically deducted from your chosen credit card, debit card or bank account. This ongoing monthly fee will continue to be deducted, without further consent from you or notice from us, until such time as you or we cancel the contract between us.
Payment for the Membership at the end of the gifted period.
If you have received the Membership as a gift, you will not be required to join and will not be automatically added to the paid Membership at the expiry of the gifted period. Prior to the expiry of the gifted period, you will be advised that your gifted period is coming to an end, and you will be given the option to continue in the Membership as a paid member. If you do not wish to continue in the Membership as a paid member, you will be removed from the Membership at the expiry of the gifted period and will have no further obligations.
Activation of the gifted Membership.
You will have 12 months from the date you were emailed or otherwise sent the gifted Membership to activate your gifted Membership. You may activate your gifted Membership at any time during that 12-month period using the activation details provided to you with the gifted Membership. If you are not able to activate the gifted Membership within this 12-month period, please email us at email@example.com to discuss further. Please note that neither you nor the person who purchased the gift Membership will be entitled to a full or partial refund of the value of the gifted Membership on the grounds of it not being activated within the 12-month period.
OUR RIGHTS IN RELATION TO THE PRODUCTS
Minor changes to the products.
We may change the Membership:
- to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements;
- to implement minor technical adjustments and improvements, for example to address a security threat;
- to add additional content, or remove content that is no longer relevant to the Membership.
Our intellectual property rights in relation to the content of the Membership.
We are the owners or licensees of all intellectual property rights in the website, and the Membership you purchase, including any databases that hold relevant information about the website or the Membership. These rights are protected by copyright or trade mark registration and you may only use the Membership, or any part of it, in accordance with these terms.
Upon payment of the price for the Membership we grant you a non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable, revocable licence to use the Membership content for your own personal, non-commercial use.
You must not redistribute, transmit, assign, sell, rent, exchange, commercially exploit, broadcast, modify, adapt, copy, edit, sub-licence, share, lend, or transfer any Membership content, or part of the Membership content, unless agreed with us in writing. To do so would be breaching our intellectual property rights, and we reserve our rights to take legal action if this occurs.
PROVIDING THE MEMBERSHIP
We will supply the Membership to you until either the Membership is complete or the subscription expires (if applicable) or you end the contract as described in below or we end the contract by written notice to you as also described below.
We may use or rely upon third parties to facilitate our provision of the Membership.
We may use Circle as the platform on which the community will live and through which content will be shared between us and the community. We may use Memberful to manage member accounts and facilitate payment of Fees. You may be required to sign up to, create accounts with, provide personal information to or otherwise engage with some or any of these third parties in order to access and use the Membership. We may add, remove or otherwise change at any time and for any reason the third parties we use to facilitate our provision of the Membership, or any element of it. We are not responsible for these third parties, and please be aware that you engage with these third parties entirely at your own risk.
We are not responsible for delays outside our control.
If our supply of the Membership is delayed by an event outside of our control then we will contact you as soon as possible to let you know and we will take steps to minimise the effect of the delay. Provided we do this we will not be liable for delays caused by the event, but if there is a risk of substantial delay you may contact us to end the contract and receive a refund for any time in the Membership you have paid for but not received.
What will happen if you do not give required information to us.
We may need certain information from you so that we can supply the Membership to you. If so, this will have been stated in the description of the Membership on our website. If you do not give us this information within a reasonable time of us asking for it, or if you give us incomplete or incorrect information, we may either end the contract or make an additional charge of a reasonable sum to compensate us for any extra work that is required as a result. We will not be responsible for supplying the Membership late or not supplying any part of it if this is caused by you not giving us the information we need within a reasonable time of us asking for it.
Reasons we may suspend the supply of the Membership to you.
We may have to suspend the supply of the Membership to:
- deal with technical problems or make minor technical changes;
- update the Membership to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements;
- for any other reason and at our absolute discretion.
Your rights if we suspend the supply of the Membership.
We will contact you in advance to tell you we will be suspending supply of the Membership, unless the problem is urgent or an emergency. If we have to suspend the Membership, we will adjust the price so that you do not pay for the Membership while it is suspended. You may contact us to end the contract for the Membership if we suspend it, or tell you we are going to suspend it, in each case for a period of more than 14 days and we will refund any sums you have paid in advance for the Membership in respect of the period after you end the contract.
We may also suspend supply of the Membership if you do not pay.
If you do not pay us for the Membership when you are supposed to and you still do not make payment within seven (7) days of us reminding you that payment is due, we may suspend supply of the Membership until you have paid us the outstanding amounts. We will contact you to tell you we are suspending supply of the Membership. We will not charge you for the Membership during the period for which it is suspended.
YOUR RIGHTS TO END THE CONTRACT
You can always end your contract with us.
Your rights when you end the contract will depend on what you have bought, whether there is anything wrong with it, how we are performing, when you decide to end the contract and whether you are a consumer or business customer.
Ending the contract because of something we have done or are going to do.
If you are ending a contract for a reason set out at (a) to (e) below the contract will end immediately and we will refund you in full for any part of the Membership which has not been provided and you may also be entitled to compensation. The reasons are:
- we have told you about an upcoming change to the Membership or these terms which you do not agree to;
- we have told you about an error in the price or description of the Membership and you do not wish to proceed;
- there is a risk that supply of the Membership may be significantly delayed because of events outside of our control;
- we have suspended supply of the Membership for technical reasons, or notify you we are going to suspend it for technical reasons, in each case for a period of more than 14 days; or
- you have a legal right to end the contract because of something we have done wrong.
Ending your contract.
Where you have agreed to pay a monthly fee for ongoing for the Membership, you can cancel your contract at any time using the methods set out below in “How to end your contract with us”. You must let us know of your intention to cancel the contract at least two (2) days before the next billing date for which you are scheduled to pay the monthly fee for the Membership. If you do not provide us with at least two (2) days’ notice of your intention to cancel your contract, you will be charged the next scheduled monthly fee in accordance with these terms.
Where you have agreed to pay a one-off annual fee for the Membership, you will not be entitled to a refund unless:
- you change your mind and cancel your contract with us within 14 days of purchase, as explained in more detail below, or
- one of the reasons set out in the section above entitled “Ending the contract because of something we have done or are going to do” apply.
Cancellation of your contract for the Membership for any other reason will not entitle you to a refund.
Ending your Membership if you have received the Membership as a gift.
If you have received the Membership as a gift, you may cancel your Membership at any time during the gifted period. If you choose to cancel your Membership anytime during the gifted period, neither you nor the person who purchased the gifted Membership will be entitled to either a full or partial refund of the value of the gifted Membership. The gifted Membership is not transferable for money or monetary value, and you will not be entitled to cancel the Membership in order to receive a cash or other monetary refund of the value of the gifted Membership.
Exercising your right to change your mind if you are a consumer (Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013).
If you are a consumer then for most digital products or services bought online you have a legal right to change your mind within 14 days and receive a refund. These rights, under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013, are explained in more detail in these terms.
How long do consumers have to change their minds?
You have 14 days after the day we email you to confirm we accept your order, or, if earlier, until you start downloading or streaming the Membership content.
HOW TO END THE CONTRACT WITH US (INCLUDING IF YOU ARE A CONSUMER WHO HAS CHANGED THEIR MIND)

To end the contract with us, the best way to do so is for you to cancel your membership directly via your Memberful account. To do this, you will need to log in to your Memberful account here, navigate to “Subscriptions”, and toggle the “Auto-Renew” option to the OFF position, whether you pay the Membership Fees monthly or annually. Once you cancel your Membership, you will still have access to the community until the end of your current billing period. If you choose to also deactivate your Circle account in its entirety when cancelling your Membership, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will assist.

If you are entitled to a refund under these terms we will refund you the price you paid for the Membership by the method you used for payment. However, we may make deductions from the price, as described below.
When we may make deduction from refunds if you are a consumer exercising your right to change your mind.
If you are exercising your right to change your mind, we may deduct from any refund an amount for the supply of the Membership for the period for which it was supplied, ending with the time when you told us you had changed your mind. The amount will be in proportion to what has been supplied, in comparison with the full coverage of the contract.
When your refund will be made.

- we, in our absolute discretion, have reason to believe that you have breached our Community Guidelines, a copy of which is available here.

OTHER IMPORTANT TERMS
We may transfer this agreement to someone else.
We may transfer our rights and obligations under these terms to another organisation. We will always tell you in writing if this happens and we will ensure that the transfer will not affect your rights under the contract.
You need our consent to transfer your rights to someone else.
You may only transfer your rights or your obligations under these terms to another person if we agree to this in writing.
Nobody else has any rights under this contract.
This contract is between you and us. No other person shall have any rights to enforce any of its terms. Neither of us will need to get the agreement of any other person in order to end the contract or make any changes to these terms.
If a court finds part of this contract illegal, the rest will continue in force.
Each of the paragraphs of these terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.
Even if we delay in enforcing this contract, we can still enforce it later.
If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking this contract, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date. For example, if you miss a payment and we do not chase you but we continue to provide the Membership, we can still require you to make the payment at a later date.
Which laws apply to this contract and where you may bring legal proceedings.
These terms are governed by English law and you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the Membership or these terms in the English courts.
