Contract term and payments

Your membership will commence from the payment of the first membership fee and will continue for an initial period of 12 months and subsequent 12 months periods unless your membership is cancelled in accordance with these terms and conditions.

Membership fees are to be paid upfront via monthly direct debit (via Stripe).  In the event of a failed direct debit payment, we reserve the right to temporarily suspend your membership until payment is made.

At the end of each membership year, you will be invited to renew your membership. You will be able to renew your membership by paying the membership fee for the next contact term.

Promotional offers are subject to the terms of the offer.

Cancellation policy

If you are an individual member and you are unhappy with your membership and wish to refund the membership fees, you can write to us at  enquiries@immerseuk.org within 14 days of receipt of your membership confirmation email and we will refund your membership fee.

If you are a company member or a founder member, a minimum of twelve months membership is required before cancellation. Should you wish to cancel membership before the minimum twelve months, you will be required to complete full payment for the period of twelve months membership.

Within a reasonable time prior to the expiry of each 12 months membership period, we will send you a renewal notice by e-mail (“Renewal Notice”) notifying you that the current membership period is approaching expiry and that your membership will be automatically renewed at the end of the relevant 12 month period. The Renewal Notice will quote the relevant date of renewal and the amount of the further membership fee.

In the event that you wish to cancel your membership, you must send notice in writing to us (which may be by e-mail) requesting cancellation no later than 30 working days prior to the end of the current membership period, upon receipt of which:

  • we will cancel your membership;
  • no further membership fee will be debited; and
  • this agreement will immediately terminate.

If you choose to leave Immerse UK, you should inform us of your 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 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 membership fees paid.
