The Company - ALLMI Ltd is engaged in all services associated with the activities of a trade association and a training accreditation service.
The Purchaser - Any Member of the Association, person, partnership or company who or which requests a quotation or places an order for goods or services supplied by the Company.
Application / Scope - Unless otherwise agreed in writing by the Company, these conditions will apply to all subscriptions, quotations and tenders given, orders received and accepted and all contracts undertaken by the Company. In the event of conflict, these conditions shall prevail. Acceptance of any quotation or tender and the placing of any contract with the Company, includes acceptance of these conditions. If the Purchaser’s order contains special printed conditions, such conditions are only binding in so far as they are not at variance with these conditions and have been accepted in writing by the Company.
Goods - Training manuals, training courses, training aids, clothing, membership subscriptions and any other documents produced or services provided by the Company.
All orders for goods and/or for work to be carried out are accepted by the Company in good faith, but the Company cannot guarantee delivery or completion by any particular date and shall not be liable for any loss or damage, which may result. Unless otherwise stated, prices quoted by the company exclude VAT and any costs of carriage or delivery.
All goods are due to be paid for within 30 days of date of invoice. With regard to the payment of membership subscriptions (excluding subscriptions for affiliated members and members of the Operators’ Forum), the sum of £100 will be deducted from the invoice if the Purchaser pays in full within 30 days of date of invoice, or if the Purchaser sets up a Standing Order which facilitates monthly payments. In order for the £100 to be deducted, Standing Order arrangements must make the initial payment within 30 days of date of invoice, and the monthly payments must be such that they will result in the full payment of the amount invoiced by the end of the financial year (of the Company) in which the invoiced was raised.
Where a cheque is received for payment which subsequently does not clear when banked, the Company reserves the right to charge the Purchaser £25 in order to cover administrative costs and bank charges.
The Company retains the right to withhold goods from the Purchaser until full payment has been received for the invoice relating to those goods or any other outstanding invoice.
Cancellation of Orders
Goods must be returned by the Purchaser within seven days of receipt and the Purchaser shall be liable for the cost of returning the goods. Any refunds due will be provided within 30 days of cancellation.
With regard to all membership subscriptions, should the Purchaser decide to cancel their subscription part way through the Company’s financial year with the invoice remaining unpaid, the Purchaser will be liable for a percentage of the sum invoiced. The sum will be in accordance with the number of months that have lapsed since the date of invoice (in this situation, fees will be charged up to the end of the month within which membership was cancelled).
Where the Purchaser cancels their membership subscription and at a later date, wishes to rejoin as a member, the Purchaser will be required to:
- Pay a rejoining fee. The rejoining fee will equate to the annual subscription fee payable for the category of membership applicable to the Purchaser. This rejoining fee will be payable in addition to the standard subscription fee which is charged for that category of membership at the time of rejoining.
- Remain as a non-member for a period of one year. This period will commence from the date on which membership is requested.
