Copyrighted materials, etc.) to manufacture, distribute, sell, market, or promote any of their services without the prior written consent of Alexandra Slack or an appointed representative.
3.8 These Terms and Conditions may change from time to time without giving notice, but reasonable endeavours shall be made to inform You as soon as is reasonably possible of any such change.
3.9 All personal information that may be used will be collected, processed and held in accordance with the provisions of any data protection legislation from time to time in force in the United Kingdom including, but not limited to, the Data Protection Act 2018, any legislation which succeeds that Act, the retained EU law version of the General Data Protection Regulation ((EU) 2016/679) (the “UK GDPR”), as it forms part of the law of England and Wales, Scotland, and Northern Ireland by virtue of section 3 of the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018, and, where applicable, guidance and codes of practice issued by the Information Commissioner and your rights under the GDPR.

4.2 Although this a business club and a company may pay for the membership, membership lies with the individual (that completed the application form and as a result was voted in).

4.5 Fees cannot be transferred from one person to another unless the same company paid the fees.
4.6 The Circle Club events are subject to change from time to time, but we aim to provide as much prior notice as possible of any such changes.
