Terms and Conditions

I understand that:

My membership is automatically renewed on an annual basis on each anniversary of my joining Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce. If I wish to resign from membership, I will provide 3 months notice of resignation in writing to GM Chamber expiring on or before the relevant renewal date. If I do not do so I will remain liable for the full membership fee for the 12 months following the relevant renewal date and thereafter unless and until proper notice of resignation is given in accordance with this clause.

If, after the relevant renewal date any of my membership fee is due and remains unpaid, I will not be eligible for any discounted rates and will be charged the non-member rate. All outstanding debts are serviced by an external credit control agency.

I agree that GM Chamber may hold personal data regarding me and/or my staff. Where such data relates to my staff I confirm that I have obtained (or in the case of data collected in the future will obtain) consent to its usage in accordance with these terms and hereby indemnify you against any cost or losses caused by this not being the case.

Such data may comprise names, addresses, e-mail addresses, telephone and fax numbers and other relevant contact details together with other miscellaneous personal information about individuals provided to you from time to time by me or by my staff. Also details of correspondence, telephone calls and attendances undertaken in providing me with services from time to time may be recorded and also contain personal data.

I consent the use of such data by GM Chamber to provide me with services, for analysis and record-keeping and to market products and services to me and to others (by email or otherwise). If a data subject does not wish such data to be used for marketing purposes he/she has the right to opt out of the same by contacting you by email, in writing or by telephone at any time. Such data will be retained for such period as is reasonable for legitimate business purposes.

Data will not be sold or disclosed to any third party outside GM Chamber without the express authority of the individual to whom the data relates, save where disclosure is reasonably required for business purposes (for example to sub-contractors or to auditors or as part of a genuine reconstruction or sale of the whole or a substantial part of your business undertaking).

In order to provide services to me you (or your partner organisations) may need to make a search against my business and/or the principal individuals involved in it with a credit reference agency, which will keep a record of that search and will share that information with other businesses.
