Membership Terms and Conditions
EFFECT OF THESE CONDITIONS
Any application for, or renewal of, membership of Expats & Entrepreneurs will be deemed to be made on the basis of these Terms and Conditions, which will govern the on-going relationship between the member, Expats & Entrepreneurs and the Expats & Entrepreneurs Group to which the member belongs.
Each member must represent the profession that is either their main business or forms a substantial part of their main business activity. Only one core activity (or niche) can be promoted by each member at the meeting. This is to avoid conflict of interests between members that are operating in the same industry. Expats & Entrepreneurs will try to avoid conflicts by distributing members in different groups where their profession or niche is not yet represented, but we cannot guarantee exclusivity at this stage.
If a member wishes to represent other areas of their business than originally listed on their application form, they must seek permission from their Group Chairperson or from Expats & Entrepreneurs directly.
If a member wants to change their registered profession, provided that profession is not already represented in their group, they should discuss it with their Chairperson. A fee of €10 (Euros) may be levied for administration purposes.
As we grow, members may only transfer between groups in exceptional circumstances. Each situation will be considered on a case by case basis and a transfer fee of €10(Euros) may be levied for administration purposes. Initially, they should contact the Chairperson of their group.
If a member cannot attend a meeting they should arrange for a representative/substitute to attend in their place, having first checked with the Chairperson regarding suitability.
If a member fails to attend regularly, Expats & Entrepreneurs reserves the right to review and revoke their membership. If a member is absent from 2 or more meetings (without sending a representative/substitute) in a 12-month membership period, their professional category may be re-opened. A leave of absence, including maternity leave, may be possible in certain circumstances but must be agreed in advance by the Group Chairperson.
If a Member is absent from 4 or more meetings in total in a 12-month membership period, their membership may be terminated at the discretion of the Group Chairperson.
MEETINGS AND VISITS TO OTHER GROUPS
Basic Members are permitted a maximum of 1 meeting per month.
VIP members may attend 2 meetings per month (1 Global and of their choice).
Premium members have unlimited access to all languages meetings plus 1 Global meeting per month.
LEAVING EXPATS & ENTREPRENEURS
Members may give up their membership at any time after joining, but no refund will be made on any remaining portion of the membership year. If membership ceases for whatever reason, the member’s details will be completely removed from the Expats & Entrepreneurs website, www.expatsandentrepreneurs.com, together with any posts which may have been submitted for publication on the website by the member.
Membership fees at the level applied by Expats & Entrepreneur from time to time are payable annually by money transfer, PayPal, Credit Cards, subject to VAT at the appropriate rate where applicable.
Renewal notices will be sent out approximately two and one month before the renewal is due and payment must be received by the renewal date in order for the membership to continue. If payment is not received within 14 days of the renewal date the membership may be terminated at the discretion of the Group Chairperson.
In the event that a member wishes to terminate their membership, for whatever reason, the fees are not refundable. If the membership is terminated by Expats & Entrepreneurs, for whatever reason, fees are not refundable.
Expats & Entrepreneurs will not be liable for failure to hold a monthly meeting if such failure is as a result of Acts of God (including fire, flood, earthquake, storm, hurricane or other natural disaster), war, invasion, act of foreign enemies, hostilities (regardless of whether war is declared), civil war, rebellion, revolution, insurrection, military or usurped power or confiscation, terrorist activities, nationalisation, government sanction, blockage, embargo, labour dispute, strike, lockout or interruption or failure of electricity or telephone service
In accordance with the requirements of the GDPR (May 2018), your opt-in preferences will be requested when you submit your profile for the Expats & Entrepreneurs website. You can change these at any time by informing your Group Chairperson.
Neither Expats & Entrepreneurs nor its Advisors, Mentors, Associates or Group Chairpersons are to be held responsible for the outcome of business or any other activity conducted between Expats & Entrepreneurs members. Each party should satisfy themselves as to the expertise and/or fitness of the other party to supply the service or product in question to an appropriate standard, and their qualification(s) to do so.
