Your renewal will automatically be processed and will continue to auto-renew until such times as we receive written notification of your intention to cancel your membership.

The number of staff employed by the entire group will be used to determine the subscription.


Each provision contained in these terms and conditions shall be severable from any other provisions, and if any part of any provision shall be found to be invalid, illegal or void for any reason, this will not affect any other part of such provision or any other provision contained in these terms and conditions, which shall continue to have full force and effect.
