Membership RENEWALS
11.0 When applying online, your Annual Membership Fee is scheduled to automatically renew via the WorldPay FuturePay Service.  

11.1 You can cancel this WorldPay Agreement at any time.  (See Credit Card Security & WorldPay above). 

11.2 Compliant with our contractual obligations under such regular FuturePay payments, we will write to the Credit/Debit Card Holder (via conventional postal service) prior to renewal being due.  This gives the Card Holder the opportunity to cancel the planned automatic Membership renewal.  Note that the letter is addressed to the postal address of Credit/Debit cardholder submitted at time of application.

Should you decide to cancel your Membership at any point during the 12 month period (outside of your statutory rights and 30 day period following automatic renewal) no proportionate refund of your annual fee will be made available although you will be entitled to receive all remaining copies of 4site Magazine (where your Membership Benefits entitle you to that under the Membership Scheme you have selected) until the original expiry date and your Membership Card will remain valid until its original expiry date. 

12.1 Your Membership details will also be deleted from our database on the original Membership expiry date. 

12.2 Upon receiving any notice of Membership cancellation, thesmartclub will always ask whether such benefits should be continued until the original expiry date or whether you wish your Membership ceased immediately.  Should you wish thesmartclub to immediately cease all Membership Benefits and immediately cancel your Membership, we will cease all future mailings and delete your Membership details from our database within 7 days of receiving such cancellation instructions.  

12.3 Where we have written to the last known address of the Credit/Debit Card holder prior to automatic renewal and we receive no response, we will assume that the Membership is to continue and the FuturePay payment will be collected. 

12.4 If, within 30 days of that payment being made the Credit/Debit Card holder contacts us to cancel Membership, then in all circumstances, a refund of the Membership fee collected will be made less the Administration Charge of 2.00.  If notice of such cancellation reaches us after 30 days from the date of automatic renewal, no proportionate refund will be made - see 12.0 above.
