. 7.2 The Club uses a Continuous Service Agreement for our membership fees, meaning that the Club automatically renews your membership as it expires. All amounts are billed in GB Pounds at the beginning of each renewal period. Your subscription will be automatically extended for successive renewal periods of the same duration as the subscription term originally selected and at the subscription rate currently in place at the time of joining. Continuous service rates apply to credit/debit card payments only and apply to both Members who join online or those the Club processes manually. To amend or cancel your subscription please see points 7.5 and 7.6 below. If you cancel your membership you will retain the benefits of membership until the end of that current membership period. The Club does not offer any kind of pro rata refund of any portion of the subscription fees already paid.

8.1 By applying for or attending a Club Event you agree that you are over 18 years of age. The Club reserves the right to terminate your agreement with immediate effect should you be found to breach these conditions. Members are to only book onto Club Events for their own sole use, and cannot do so on behalf of others without permission from the Club. Members must log out fully on leaving the website to protect against others using the Site from your computer.
8.2 Every effort is made to ensure that prices for Club Events shown on the Company’s site are accurate. If an application to take part has been accepted and an error is found the Club will inform you as soon as possible and offer you the option of reconfirming your application for the Club Event at the correct price or cancelling your application for that Club Event. If you cancel because of such error the Club will refund or re-credit you for any sum that has been paid by you except where the terms and conditions of the Supplier say otherwise.
8.3 Payment for any Club Event may be made by transfer from your Bank Account or by payment or debit card. If payment is made by credit card the Club shall reserve the right to apply a charge of 4% to cover the fees or commission charged to the Club. Payment shall be made in GB Pounds sterling. No payment for any Club Event shall be deemed to have been received until the Club has received cleared funds.

8.4 The Club shall not be responsible or liable in any way whatsoever for the cancellation of an Club Event other than as provided by this clause and clause 8.2. Where cancellation arises and is the fault of the supplier of an Club Event the terms and conditions of that supplier shall apply. The Club will use reasonable endeavours to recover payment of the monies paid by the member for the Club Event but shall not be obliged to commence legal proceedings.
8.5 The Club gives no warranty that the provider of a Club Event will accept your booking or application or that such provider will not cancel or vary the Club Event. If a Club Event requires a minimum number of participants and that number has not been accepted by the deadline date set out on the Site the Club or the Supplier may cancel the Club Event and liability shall be limited to the return of the sum paid by you.
8.6 Some variations to the published times or arrangements for a Club Event may be made by the Supplier. There may be no right to cancel or obtain a refund for the changes such as timing or the precise nature of equipment used, or programme or content. Some Club Events are dependant on weather or other factors outside the control of the Club or the Supplier and no right to cancellation or refund exists in these circumstances unless the Terms and Conditions of the Supplier says otherwise.
8.7 Should you wish to cancel your participation in a Club Event after placing a booking you must notify the Club in writing by e-mail at the e-mail address then shown on the Site. Unless the Suppliers terms provide otherwise, if you cancel more than 4 weeks in advance for a mid-week Club Event or 8 weeks in advance for a weekend Club Event (in the UK of 2 nights or less) a full refund will be given, minus a £10 cancellation fee. Alternatively if the Club Event becomes fully subscribed then the Club shall refund the price paid by the cancelling member, minus a £25 cancellation fee. These changes are also subject to the Suppliers terms and conditions, and especially in the case of holidays may not apply. For Holidays (anything abroad or over 4 nights in length) any deposits paid will always be non-refundable under any circumstances and other refunds will be subject to the terms and conditions of the Supplier. If it is an overseas trip organised by the Club then refunds can only be given 12 weeks or more in advance of the trip, minus the deposit. If you have booked your own flights and have to cancel due to a flight issue within those 12 weeks, then no refunds can be given.
8.8 At all times you shall conduct yourself in your relations with other Members or their guests or the General Public or Third Parties in a responsible and careful manner. Members failing to behave correctly may be expelled, suspended or prevented from continuing with a Club Event. Suppliers or other Event organisers can refuse admission if in their opinion you may be a risk to others or yourself or you are affecting the enjoyment of others or the running of the Club Event whether through drink, drugs or otherwise.
8.9 When participating in a Club Event which requires you to provide clothing, equipment, tools or appliances you or your guest must supply what is required suitable for use and shall cause no damage nuisance or annoyance to any other member or third party. The Club shall not be responsible for the care maintenance or repair of such clothing equipment tools or appliances.

If relevant equipment is supplied by the Supplier the Club shall not be liable for defects in or shortages of such equipment or parts thereof. You will at all times use equipment (whether supplied by you or other members or the Supplier) in accordance with the guidance and advice given by the relevant equipment supplier or the Supplier. You shall have no claim against the Club for any failure by the Supplier to supply adequate equipment, instruction, information or advice or to ensure that the Event is suitably organised, managed or controlled

8.12.1 In the instances where flights must be booked by you, you should only book these once given clear instructions to do so. Making payment for the event is not sufficient cause to book flights as the event may not go ahead until everyone going on the trip has paid. The Club will notify you by email once flights can be booked, and can’t be responsible for any booked before this point should the trip not go ahead.
8.13 If tickets or vouchers are issued by the Supplier, it is the Supplier’s responsibility to despatch them. If tickets or vouchers are required and you do not have them 4 days before the Club Event, email the Club and the Club will investigate. If the Club Event is booked at a time when it would be impractical to despatch tickets, arrangements will be made for them to be collected at the Club Event. Most 8th Day UK Club Events do not require tickets, nor will you receive an official receipt or confirmation. Once you have booked on the Club Event you will be contacted by email again shortly before the Club Event with final details.

When refusal to do so prevents your participation in the Club Event the Club shall have no liability to provide compensation.
When the context permits clause 8 shall apply to the provision and arrangement of Activities and your participation in them save where it conflicts with the provisions of the clause in which case the provisions of this clause shall prevail.
