Subscription Terms and conditions
Here is a summary of our T&Cs. For the full Terms and Conditions see below.
Your first subscription payment will be taken immediately after you submit your payment details on our website. You may start attending rehearsals immediately.
Your choir meets 48 weeks out of the year. There will be 4 scheduled weeks off per year, and you will be told of those dates a reasonable amount of time beforehand. You will not be entitled to any partial refunds for the 4 scheduled weeks off.
Our goal is that we will never cancel scheduled sessions, although you may occasionally have a different choir leader than your usual leader taking your rehearsal.
If we ever have reason to cancel your session, you are entitled to claim a partial refund equivalent to the sessions that we have cancelled. If you miss a scheduled session, you will not be entitled to a refund. Please speak to your choir leader if you have any questions about this.
Occasionally your choir may have a gig/performance or social in place of a session, this is not classed as a cancelled session and you are not entitled any partial refunds in this instance.
You can cancel your subscription at any time, for any reason. You can cancel on our website, by speaking to your choir leader, or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
Your subscription will be cancelled immediately and no future payments will be taken.
For monthly subscriptions, we will not give partial refunds if you cancel your subscription early in the 30-day payment cycle, but you will be very welcome to attend all of the remaining sessions in that month before the following payment date; on that date, no payment will be taken.
For yearly subscriptions, your payment will be calculated to the end of the 30-day period in which you cancelled, and you will be refunded the amount for the remainder of the year after that 30-day period. In other words, your refund will be calculated by the month, not by the week. You will be very welcome to attend all of the sessions in the 30-day period in which you cancelled.
You may re-start your subscription at any time providing you choir does not have a waiting list.
Your subscription needs to be paid up to date in order for you to take part in rehearsals and gigs. If you have not paid for any reason, we may have to ask you not to take part until you have updated your payments.
We reserve the right to change the monthly fee of your subscription, but we will always tell you at least one (1) month in advance of any changes.
The above is a summary of the main points for full T&Cs see below

33. You can cancel your subscription at any time, if you simply wish to change your mind and without giving us a reason, and without incurring any liability.

35. For yearly subscriptions, your payment will be calculated to the end of the 30-day period in which you cancelled, and you will be refunded the amount for the remainder of the year after that 30-day period minus your non-refundable transaction fee.

40. In the case of the cooling period, to meet the cancellation deadline, it is sufficient for you to send your communication concerning your exercise of the right to cancel before the cancellation period has expired. If we receive notice of your cancellation and the first payment is accidentally taken, you will be entitled to a full refund of that payment.

42. We will supply the Services with reasonable skill and care.
43. In relation to the Services, anything we say or write to you, or anything someone else says or writes to you on our behalf, about us or about the Services, is a term of the Contract (which we must comply with) if you take it into account when deciding to enter this Contract, or when making any decision about the Services after entering into this Contract. Anything you take into account is subject to anything that qualified it and was said or written to you by us or on behalf of us on the same occasion, and any change to it that has been expressly agreed between us (before entering this Contract or later).
