Terms and conditions relating to the use of www.1Networking.biz (‘the Website’), to membership activity in 1Networking (the ‘Networking Service’) and to use of the 1Networking Facebook pages.
1Networking memberships are annual commitments and the annual fee is payable in full upon joining. The standard annual fee is £499 + VAT. In the event you join on a special offer, which may include payment by instalments, you are still committing to an annual membership and all instalments will be due as per the offer at the time.
The preferred method of payment is a debit/credit card. We do not accept American Express or cheques.
We accept BACs payments for annual payments if required. Auto renewal is NOT applicable to BACS payments (For BACs payments please sales@1Networking.biz for authorisation.
- BACs payments incur a £20 inc VAT administration fee.
- Your annual membership period commences from the date when payment is received, not the date of the invoice.
When you join 1Networking, you join one group which meets weekly online, and your commitment is to attend each week.
Each meeting requires a fee of £5 + VAT. Meetings fees are payable in advance by Direct Debit every 12 weeks (£60 + VAT).
Refunds and pausing membership
- The annual membership fee and meeting fees are non-refundable under any circumstances.
- There is no facility for pausing 1Networking memberships.
- Your membership cannot be transferred to anyone else. The only exception to this is permanent transfer to a different person in the same organisation. This can be carried out, provided it’s to cover the same seat, subject to a fee of £40 + VAT and approval by a 1N Director.
- All transactions between you and 1Networking Ltd are business to business transactions. No refund is possible once payment has been processed.
Continuous Membership and Cancellations
In order to keep costs to a minimum and to offer an efficient membership renewal service, 1Networking provides a ‘Continuous Membership’ programme. This is applicable to all members and to the annual membership and the 12 weekly meeting fees. You must give 30 days written notice by email to Support@1Networking.biz if you wish to cancel.
This notice period is the 30 days prior to the expiry date of the current term of your Continuous Membership. You can check what this date is by emailing support@1Networking.biz at any time. The notice must be given by email to firstname.lastname@example.org . 1Networking will acknowledge your cancellation email by return email. If you do not receive this email and cannot provide it to us on request, your cancellation will not be valid.
Transfer to another 1Networking Team
In exceptional circumstances, you may request a transfer to another 1Networking team. This will be allowed at the discretion of a 1N Director and will be subject to a transfer fee of £40 + VAT.
If your membership lapses and you then wish to re-join, you will be offered the standard annual membership, plus 12 weekly meeting fees, unless there are any special offers on at the time.
Your 1Networking membership is assigned only to you and when you join, you join one group and your commitment is to attend that group weekly. If you are unable to attend a meeting, you are able to send a Stand 1N to represent you and your business in your absence. You must complete the Stand 1N form and inform the Leadership Team of your Stand 1N in advance and this should not happen more than four times in any six month period.
If your Stand 1N has their own business and their sector is not taken by a member of your group, they may also represent their own business as a visitor.
If you invite a visitor via the correct process, and that visitor subsequently joins 1Networking within two months, you will be rewarded with three free membership months added to your existing membership term. Your meeting fees are still payable every 12 weeks.
