1a. Membership details and Events
All applications for membership of SEEd are to be made via the SEEd Membership Application form. By submitting the application form, the Member is deemed to have signed the application form.

SEEd reserves the right at all times and in its absolute discretion to determine the number of Members in SEEd and may accept or reject applications for membership as it feels fit.
Members of corporate memberships must all be part of the same cost centre or department or all work at the same site. The Lead Member is responsible for annual membership renewal and will be SEEd’s first point of contact for any enquiries. All membership monies are payable in sterling, with preferred payment being an online payment. Payment can be made by a debit payment or by credit card. Payment can also be made by cheque or BACS. Membership fees are revised annually and will be notified to Members in writing. Clause 5 contains cancellation rights.
Any organisational Member wishing to change, add or delete any information on themselves held on the website are able to do so by emailing amended details to firstname.lastname@example.org.
In the case of organisational membership, the following will apply:
Small organisations: max 2 attendees per event at discounted rates
Organisation Members agree not to post any material which infringes third party intellectual property rights;
1b. Terminating membership
Membership is to be renewed annually. SEEd will email each Member once the membership is coming up to renewal. If a Member does not pay the annual membership fee then the membership is not continued and the Member will not have the benefit of membership.
SEEd reserves the right to expel Members or to prevent any Member from participating in any Event or from renewing membership if the Member puts the organisation into disrepute or if a Member continuously fails to attend events which they have signed up to or if the Member is misusing any forum (for example, using the discussion forum to send chain letters).
If, for whatever reason, a Member wishes to terminate their Membership, they must give 28 days notice of this in writing to SEEd. We regret we are unable to offer refunds if membership is cancelled for whatever reason before the renewal date unless we receive notice of cancellation within 14 days of taking out membership.
2. SEEd EVENTS
SEEd Supporters will be informed of forthcoming Events by e-newsletter or on the Website. Members and others can sign up to an event via the Website event booking form. Payment for attendance at an Event can be made by cheque, BACS or Paypal.
Attendees shall not hold SEEd responsible or liable in any way whatsoever for the cancellation for whatever reason of an Event. If an attendee has signed up to attend an Event but is unable to attend the Event, that attendee must contact email@example.com at least 2 weeks prior to the Event. If notification is received from an attendee prior to 2 weeks before the event, a 50% refund of Event attendance monies will be given. If notice is received after this, the attendee will not be entitled to a refund.
Where cancellation arises and is the fault of a supplier of an Event, SEEd will use its reasonable endeavours to procure the return of the booking fees and any other monies paid by attendee for such Event.
Attendees agree to comply with any necessary health and safety regulations applicable to any Event attended.
