Membership Plans and Subscriptions
Certain features of CLG are only available to registered users who subscribe for “paid” Membership Plans as detailed below.
Certain features of the CLG are only available to registered users who subscribe for an ‘individual’, ‘student / apprentice’, ‘organisation’ or ‘learning portal’ membership (together, “Membership Plans”). Below, you’ll find a few additional terms that apply to Membership Plan holders, including, amongst other things, terms relating to payment, the conclusion and renewal of your contract, your right of withdrawal during the first 14 days of your subscription, and certain technical usage limitations.
Membership Plans Features and Prices
A detailed description of our Membership Plans, including the prices and the features associated, is available on our Membership page.
All prices include VAT charged at 20%.
Selecting a Membership Plan
Selecting a plan and submitting your payment information is an offer to conclude a contract. The contract itself is not concluded until you receive confirmation from us or until we activate your Membership Plan, as described below.
Trials and Test Periods
CLG will occasionally offer new users the use of the subscription access for trial purposes for a certain time free-of-charge (so called “trial”). CLG determines at its own discretion if you can participate in the trial. CLG shall have the right to stop or change a free trial at any time without prior notification or termination period if good cause is present.
Participation in certain trials might only be possible if you enter your payment data during trial registration. In such event, we will need your consent at the beginning of the trial that your free access will be switched to a fee-based subscription access on the day after your trial expired. In this event your subscription will subsequently renew itself depending on the term you’ve committed to when accepting the trial access and can be terminated until one day before the subscription is set to renew.
If you do not want the subscription service and the corresponding charges, you will have to terminate the subscription access provided within the trial prior to the trial expiry (e.g. conveniently via your CLG Account Settings).
Conclusion of Contract and Start of Subscription
Once your payment has been received, your Membership Plan will be activated, and we will send confirmation by email to the address associated with your account.
The contract for your Membership Plan is concluded when you receive our confirmation email (or when we activate your account, if this happens first), not when you make your payment.
Fees for Membership Plans are payable in advance and will be taken at the time the contract is concluded as described above. Payment can be made by Debit/Credit Card.
Term and Renewal
Annual Membership Plans run for twelve months from the date on which your Membership Plan is activated, and your subscription will automatically renew at the end of that twelve month period, unless you choose to cancel.
You can cancel your membership at any time by selecting the ‘cancel membership’ button in your account page. Cancellation will be activated at the end of your membership period and will not affect your access to membership services in the interim.
Right of Withdrawal
Under European law you also have a legal right to withdraw from your purchase of a Membership within fourteen (14) days of your purchase, as set out below:
Model instructions on withdrawal
You have the right to withdraw from this contract within 14 days without giving any reason. The withdrawal period will expire after 14 days from the day of the conclusion of the contract.
To exercise the right of withdrawal, you must inform us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
Effects of withdrawal
If you withdraw from this contract, we shall reimburse to you all payments received from you, without undue delay and in any event not later than 30 days from the day on which we are informed about your decision to withdraw from this contract. If you requested to begin the performance of services during the withdrawal period, you shall pay us an amount which is in proportion to what has been provided until you have communicated us your withdrawal from this contract, in comparison with the full coverage of the contract.
Following receipt of your notice of withdrawal, CLG will delete the account.
Changes to Pricing and Features
We may occasionally need to change the features of our Membership Plans and/or change the prices charged for these accounts. In the event of any increase in the price or material reduction in the features of any Membership Plan to which you subscribe, we will communicate these change(s) to you at least six (6) weeks in advance and the changes will only take effect with respect to any subsequent renewal of your subscription.
Changes to CLG, accounts and pricing
CLG reserves the right at any time, for any reason, to suspend, discontinue, terminate or stop providing access to CLG or any part thereof. CLG shall always aim to notify registered users of such a decision in advance.
CLG may change the features of any type of account, may withdraw or introduce new features at any time and may change prices charged for any of its paid accounts from time to time. In the event of any increase in the price or reduction in the features of any paid account to which you have subscribed, such change(s) will be communicated to you and will take effect with respect to any subsequent renewal of your subscription.
You may terminate this agreement at any time by sending notice by writing to CLG at:
Creative Learning Guild
D140, D Mill
If you have a paid account and terminate this agreement before the end of your subscription, we are unable to offer any refund for any unused period of your subscription.
On termination of your account, any and all of your content will be deleted by CLG with the exception of content that we are obliged or permitted to retain, which could include data or information, in accordance with applicable laws and/or to protect our business interests.
CLG is not able to provide you with any copy of your content.
These terms shall be governed by English law and the parties submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the English courts.
