TERMS & CONDITIONS

 

AGREEMENT BETWEEN USER AND KCW CHAMBER

The KCW Chamber website is comprised of various web pages operated by KCW Chamber.

The KCW Chamber website is offered to you conditioned on your acceptance without modification of the terms, conditions, and notices contained herein. Your use of the KCW Chamber website constitutes your agreement to all such terms, conditions, and notices.

MEMBERSHIP

KCW Chamber Membership is for a minimum of one year as per the joining date when you joined online or as stated on the membership invoice. The annual membership fee cannot be cancelled or refunded. The annual or quarterly payments are due promptly and in full if the member opts to pay the invoice on an annual basis.

Failure to pay for company membership will lead to a suspension of membership and KCW Chamber will pursue the full annual payment and will only re-activate the membership once the annual payment is received in full.

Payment of the annual membership subscription can be made in 4 equal quarterly amounts. However, the annual membership fee, once agreed and made, cannot be cancelled or refunded in the first year of membership. It is extremely time-consuming and costly to administer late, or irregular payments and we reserve the right to charge £25+VAT if payments are not made within 60 days of the due date of invoice payment date. Further if the first payment is not received within 7 working days from the date of invoice and if any payments are late or missed, we will request the balance on your account to be immediately paid in full.

Membership of KCW Chamber is open to all companies which want to promote their goods and services to other companies, and, in turn, are open to promotion of other members' goods and services.

Any company can apply to KCW Chamber for membership. Once Membership is paid for the KCW Chamber Executive Committee ratifies the membership. KCW Chamber reserves the right to deny or cancel membership, access to its events or online facilities should the company be deemed not suitable for membership. No explanation needs to be given. If your company is not ratified as a member then your membership fees will be fully refunded.

Any company or its representatives acting in a manner not conducive to the aims of KCW Chamber can have its membership suspended or rescinded at the discretion of KCW Chamber. Such activities such as non-payment of fees, spamming members via email, posting of lewd or inappropriate content online or aggressive promotion, promotion of other networks to the detriment of KCW Chamber especially where such promotion is by a person with a rewarded position within another network can lead to suspension or membership cancellation. In such circumstances, no refund of fees will be made.

Company members pay an annual subscription fee in return for benefits that are accorded to member companies. These include priority invitations for events, reduced or free entry to certain events and at the discretion of KCW Chamber, free entry into the printed and online directory and other services designed to increase business marketing opportunities for each of its members.

Each member company can send the number representatives to any event according to the Tier level under the terms of its membership agreement. Additional guests are welcome to attend but are subject to event restrictions and charges as announced.

EVENT BOOKINGS

All companies and their representatives must book ahead of the event they wish to attend. Prior booking is a prerequisite of admittance. Where no booking is made, entry cannot be guaranteed. In circumstances where no booking has been received, KCW Chamber can only permit entry subject to the host venue's agreement with KCW Chamber and is permitted subject to full payment being received within 24 hours.

KCW Chamber reserves the right to pursue non-paying companies for payments due. Members can be suspended for non-payment of due event fees until such time as the amount due is settled.

All bookings must be made through our online booking system or by email. A place is reserved for three days pending payment when the booking is accepted as confirmed. Payment is confirmation of attendance. Where bookings are made and accepted and a payment arrangement is allowed on the day, the booking company accepts full liability in the event they do not attend. KCW Chamber will invoice for the agreed payment and seek settlement by return.

Cancellations and refunds are only accepted when made at least 24 hours before the event and where cancellations are allowed at the venue. In such circumstances, we will attempt offer a full refund or transfer the booking to another event of the booking company's choice. All refunds and transfers are at the discretion of KCW Chamber.

The production of a datasheet for a KCW Chamber event is discretionary and does not constitute part of the event fee. Whilst every effort is made to include all attending company's details on datasheets, booking an event does not guarantee company data being included on event materials. This applies to late bookings - ones made within 24 hours of an event, or where a booking has failed to appear on the system for technical reasons.

All data collected when booking is subject to our Privacy terms above. We do not keep or store any card details when these are used for bookings. 

PERIOD OF ARRANGEMENT

The arrangement between KCW Chamber and each user shall continue indefinitely until it is terminated as follows:

a) By the user: By giving written notice of termination to this email address at any time: Team@KCWChamber.org or Suite 313, 56 Gloucester Road, Kensington, London. SW7 4UB. Such termination shall be effective three months after the date on which the notice is given.

b) By KCW Chamber: By giving the user written notice of termination to the most recent email address supplied. Such notice may only be given where 1) any amount owed by the user to KCW Chamber is overdue and 2) the user has not paid the outstanding amount in full within 7 days (or such longer period indicated by KCW Chamber) of the request by KCW Chamber to the user’s most recent email address supplied. Termination in these circumstances shall be effective immediately at the end of that period without KCW Chamber being required to give any further notice.

AUTHORITY REGARDING PAYMENT

The user irrevocably authorises KCW Chamber to claim payment of amounts properly due to it by the user from time to time from any credit card or debit card details submitted and may do so monthly or at other intervals as KCW Chamber determines. This right continues until the effective termination of the arrangement.

If the User is a company or similar organisation, the individual submitting the credit card or debit card (and acting on behalf of the user generally) represents that he/she is authorised to do so by that company or similar organisation.

CANCELLING MEMBERSHIP

Those members choosing to leave KCW Chamber should inform the office of their decision before the end of that current year's membership. Benefits of membership will be removed on the last date of that year's membership including event attendance, online directory listing, Alerts subscriptions and any other benefits of membership available at the time of cancellation.

In order for these benefits to be reinstated, membership must be reactivated, and due fees made. KCW Chamber will inform each company of their status and fees due.

The leaving company forfeits all rights of attendance of KCW Chamber events. If anyone at your company wishes to attend a future event, the company will have to re-join KCW Chamber.
