4. FL has a limited free membership offering for women who click on the “Free Membership” option on the FL website. By becoming a free member, your data is inputted onto our database. At registration, your consent is required to receive the FL newsletters and other updates. As a free member, you do not receive event ticket discounts and free attendance at the FL monthly business breakfast networks.

By becoming a premium member, your data is inputted onto our database and at registration, your consent is required to receive the FL newsletters and other updates.
6. As a premium member, you will be asked to create a password. Your password must be kept confidential and only be used by you. In particular, any event ticket orders received by FL from your member profile using your member password will be your responsibility. If you believe that the security of your password has been compromised you must inform us as soon as reasonably possible.
7. FL reserves the right to increase annual membership fees but current members at the time of a membership fee change will not be subject to the new annual membership fee until the date of their next annual membership renewal and any increased fee will not be applied retrospectively.
8. Fees for individual FL events are as advertised by FL on our website or third-party sites - an “early bird” discount is often applied to events, to encourage individuals to book their places early. Any “early bird” discount will expire on the date stated on these sites.
9. FL premium or corporate members are able to purchase tickets for FL events at the discounted membership rates advertised on the FL website.
10. FL may, at its discretion, provide special offers on event ticket prices for non-members as well as for members and FL decision on the event ticket prices offered to members and non-members is final.
11. FL membership is not transferable.
12. Auto-renewal of membership – FL premium membership is renewed annually. A maximum of 3 reminder emails may be sent before the renewal date. Payment for subsequent years’ membership will be automatically taken by FL upon the anniversary of the creation of the Membership. At the point of automatic membership renewal, the applicable annual membership payment will be taken from the credit card or bank account originally utilised when the membership was created.
13. Membership cancellation - The duration of FL premium membership subscription is 12 months and annual membership payments are not refundable in part or whole where a member decides to cancel her membership mid-way through the 12 month membership period. The date of original creation of the Membership will become the Automatic Membership Renewal Date for subsequent years unless a promotional offer was added unto the account. Members wishing to cancel their membership of FL can do so by sending a minimum of 28 days’ notice of membership cancellation, prior to the Automatic Membership Renewal Date, to FL either by email to: firstname.lastname@example.org or by recorded delivery post to: Forward Ladies Ltd, Carrwood Park, Selby Road, Leeds, LS15 4LG.

15. In circumstances where less than the required notice periods set out in paragraphs 12 and 13 above is provided to FL, no refund shall be given for the membership or event ticket payment made, unless exceptional circumstances apply (such cases to be determined by FL at its absolute discretion). Where reasonably possible, FL will offer to carry payment for events over to future events (e.g. if attendance is not possible at a January monthly Power Business Breakfast, FL will, where reasonably possible, offer to carry payment for the January event through to the February monthly Power Business Breakfast).
16. Price and availability of events and courses advertised on the FL website are subject to change. In the event that an event advertised by FL is cancelled by us you will receive a full refund. Please see paragraphs 13 and 14 above regarding our refunds policy for FL events that you book but are subsequently unable to attend.

In the event of an error relating to pricing, venue or date of an event on FL website, we will correct this as soon as reasonably possible and will inform all members who have booked to attend the event in question, giving them the option of reconfirming or cancelling their attendance. In the case of a cancellation in these circumstances, a full refund will be provided.
