Terms and conditions and Privacy Statement
PRINZ membership terms and conditions
- PRINZ membership is for individuals. Each member must complete a membership sign up form agreeing to a number of statements, including but not limited to, abide by the PRINZ Code of Ethics.
- Membership fees are due on application. Memberships will not be activated until payment has been made.
- Your membership may be part of a group of four or more people from the same organisation, however it is still allocated to your name. If you leave that organisation it may replace you with a new staff member. In this case, you are no longer a PRINZ member until you renew personally.
- Our membership period is 1 April - 31 March. Before your membership expires on 31 March, you will be sent a renewal invoice in advance with a grace period of 30 days. For members who are part of a group membership, your organisation's key contact will renew for the group and make any changes as necessary.
- If a membership renewal invoice has not been paid within the grace period, the membership will lapse and you will no longer be a current PRINZ member. This applies to all member statuses.
- You may resign your PRINZ membership at any time in writing by email. There will be no membership refund provided for your annual subscription fee.
