1. MEMBERSHIP TAG: A Membership tag will be issued to each Member upon joining the Club. Members must present their tag for security and verification upon arrival at each event organised by Midnight Runners; Members without a valid Membership tag may be asked for photo identification, and will be admitted at the absolute discretion of Midnight Runners staff. A Member may not loan their Membership tag or permit its use by any other person; allowing such misuse of a Membership tag may result in Membership being terminated with no refund of fees already paid. Any lost or mislaid Membership tags will be replaced by Midnight Runners for a nominal charge.
2. PAYMENTS: Membership is payable in advance in full. Quarterly fees will be debited on or around the 1st of each new membership quarter. In the event that the Member falls into arrears in respect of any fees payable, all arrears must be settled before the Member can join further events. Quarterly Membership fees may be increased at the discretion of and at any time by Midnight Runners, to take effect after the Member's minimum term subject to at least one calendar month's written notice. Changes to pricing for new joiners may be made without notice. Where the monthly payment method is Direct Debit, Members are required to provide Midnight Runners with debit or credit card details as a secondary means of payment ("Payment Guarantee"). If any Membership payment remains outstanding beyond the due date, the Member's signature on the Payment Guarantee constitutes the Member's unconditional and irrevocable authority to debit the nominated card for the total amount due without notice to the Member. Midnight Runners reserves the right to levy an administration fee of £35 if it forwards the account to a 3rd party debt collection agency in the event of non-payment of fees when due.
3. CANCELLING YOUR MEMBERSHIP: Members on a Quarterly Membership contract may cancel their Membership after or with effect from the end of the minimum term, by giving one full calendar month's advance written notice, effective from the 1st of the following month. This should be done by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Where the payment method is Direct Debit, the Member must advise their bank to cancel the Direct Debit instruction after the final payment has been made. Midnight Runners is not obliged to refund any fees where the Member has not cancelled the instruction and cannot provide proof of a valid cancellation request. All fees must be paid to date at the time of cancellation. No refunds are applicable for any portion of fees paid upfront, excluding in the following circumstances: redundancy, permanent illness and permanent injury preventing club usage Valid documentation will be requested as proof in such circumstances. Any Member with three or more months remaining of the minimum term may terminate their Membership at the end of the then current month by paying in full 50% of the total future fees due until the end of the minimum term.
4. TERMINATION OF MEMBERSHIP BY MIDNIGHT RUNNERS Midnight Runners may terminate a Membership without notice and with immediate effect if: 1. The Member breaches these Terms & Conditions or the Club Rules, either repeatedly or because of one serious breach; 2. Any due fees remain unpaid after any request for payment by Midnight Runners; 3. Midnight Runners is of the opinion (acting in its discretion) that the Member is not suitable for continued Membership; 4. The Member puts the health, safety or well-being of staff or other Members or Guests at risk. All decisions made by Midnight Runners under this clause are final and binding. Midnight Runners is unlikely to accept a new application for Membership from someone whose Membership has been terminated in accordance with this clause.
