You/Your – An individual wishing to join the network run by Omni Local
These Terms and Conditions should be read in conjunction with the Application Form and together these documents form the basis of Your Membership contract.
On applying to join the network run by Omni Local You accept the provisions in the Application Form and these Terms and Conditions.
For the avoidance of doubt these two documents together form the entire contract between the parties and this supersedes any previous agreements.
Commencement and duration
Your Membership commences on the date that an invoice for Your subscription fees is issued and shall continue for such period as set out in the Application Form or until earlier termination in accordance with these Terms and Conditions. For the avoidance of doubt, where termination is made outside these Terms and Conditions the full amount remains payable and no refunds shall be made. On renewal of Your Membership, these Terms and Conditions shall apply to any renewal period.
Any special offers, rewards, benefits or membership to other networks which are part of Your Membership, are also terminated at the end of Your Membership.
In joining the network run by Omni Local You are joining a network of groups and You are not tied to one particular group. Your Membership gives You unlimited access to groups across the network. In the event that Your usual group closes, Your Membership shall continue and You shall continue to have access to the other groups in the network.
Only You may attend a network meeting using Your Membership and You cannot send a substitute, unless you have Legend Member status. Your Membership is non-transferrable.
Membership subscription fees
Your Membership subscription fees are as set out in the Application Form. These subscription fees are paid in advance on submitting Your Application Form to Omni Local. In addition to Your Membership subscription fees You are responsible for any costs associated with breakfast or other refreshments served at any network meetings You attend, or any other meeting format.
These additional costs are payable to the group's co-ordinator on the day. These costs vary from group to group and You should check in advance to confirm these costs.
When you submit your application form, you are commiting to pay the full ammount of the membership term. This would include any staged payements, standing orders or part payment.
Membership subscription fees may change during Your Membership and Omni Local will give You three months' notice before any increases.
Omni Local may from time to time offer cashback rewards for the introduction of new members. In these cases it is Your responsibility to ensure that You claim Your cashback within 30 days of a new member joining by raising an invoice made payable by Omni Local. For the avoidance of doubt, any cashback shall be fully inclusive and no VAT is payable in addition to the agreed cashback sum. Should You not produce an invoice during this time, Omni Local may offer an equivalent free membership to the same value.
Our current cashback offers are:
- £15.00 or 1 free month membership for each new member who joins for 6 months. This is a one off payment and payable on receipt of an invoice as set out above.
- £30.00 or 2 free months for each new member who joins for 12 months. This is a one off payment and payable on receipt of an invoice as set out above.
Payments are made at the end of following month.
As these offers are subject to change You should check details of current cashback offers with Your group director.
No cancellation or refund is possible once payment has been processed and Membership shall continue until such time as the Membership period has elapsed.
Subject to the above, Omni Local reserve the right to terminate Your Membership immediately in the event of a breach of these Terms and Conditions or other behaviour by You that Omni Local shall reasonably consider damaging to its reputation or that of another Member. This includes, but is not limited to: use of racist, sexist or otherwise offensive language, behaviour considered by another member to be harassment or defamatory, any use of violence or threatening behaviour, or attending groups whilst under the influence of drugs or alcohol. In the event that Membership is terminated early no refund of Membership subscription fees will be made.
We reserve the right to cancel your membership at any time should we feel our business community is threatened by your actions.
