Below, you will find the terms and conditions that apply to your membership and they become binding upon you as soon as you become a member of Mach8zero Premier.

By applying for Membership you are representing to us that you are eligible.
3. Your Membership Period and Benefits
- 3.1. The membership period starts on acceptance of your Application by Mach8zero until it is terminated ( the “Membership Period”).

- 3.5. Membership Plans and Membership Benefits are not guaranteed and may be amended, varied or withdrawn by Mach8zero from time to time at its complete and sole discretion. Mach8zero will always try to notify you of and publish any changes to, or any withdrawals of, the Membership Plans and the associated Membership Benefits on the Mach8zero Premier Website (or may otherwise notify a Member of such changes) before any changes take effect. Mach8zero will always endeavour to ensure that any changes made will not result in the actual value of your Membership diminishing.
- 3.6. Your Membership Fee is payable monthly upon acceptance by Mach8zero of your Application and shall be payable on the same date you became a member, each month. Your Membership Fee may change going forward. We will always provide advance notice of any changes in sufficient time to enable you to terminate your Membership if you do not wish to pay the increased Membership Fee, assuming of course that you act promptly.
- 3.7. All fees and payments due by you to Mach8zero will be collected from the payment card we have on record for you. Your Application for Membership is your authorisation for us to use this payment card. Where your Membership Fee is being paid by a third party, payment may be made by bank transfer on your behalf. Your Membership remains conditional upon your Membership Fee being received.
- 3.8. Mach8zero shall provide the Membership Benefits using reasonable care and skill.
- 3.9. You will be notified if you are eligible for an introductory offer, the basis of that offer and when it will end. Your right to cancel is unaffected
- 3.10. Mach8zero is not licensed or regulated to offer or provide insurance products and is not involved in any insurance mediation and will not provide you with any insurance products directly. The insurance services are provided by Bennett Gould and Partners, a regulated company registered in England and Wales which is an independent company.
4. Confirmation of Membership
- 4.1. Acceptance of your Application for Membership and confirmation of the Membership Benefits to be provided to your Membership Plan will be communicated to you by email to the address(es) supplied by you to Mach8zero.
- 4.2. Mach8zero aims to provide you with such confirmation within 24 hours of receipt of your Application or if later, once Mach8zero has received confirmation of payment of your Membership Fee from its payment provider.
5. Confidentiality and Privacy
- 5.1. You shall not at any time disclose to any third party any information that you have received from Mach8zero that is of a confidential nature (including without limitation trade secrets and information of commercial value), unless such information is public knowledge or already known to you at the time of disclosure or subsequently becomes public knowledge other than by breach of this Agreement or subsequently comes lawfully into your possession from a third party.
- 5.2. Subject to clause 5.3, Mach8zero shall not at any time disclose to any third party any information that it has received from you that is of a confidential nature, unless it is required to do so by law, or such information is public knowledge.
- 5.3. Mach8zero will be able to refer information about your Membership (and your Membership Category) to its Partners. Data will also be processed by and shared with various software, productivity and analytics tools used by Mach8zero such as Asana, Mailchimp, Dubsado, Google Analytics and so on. Members can request a detailed list.
- 6.1. The way in which you terminate this Agreement is by cancelling the recurring payment online in the membership area of the Mach8zero Premier Website, such cancellation being deemed to be you giving one month’s notice. Termination will then occur on the date calculated according to clause 6.2.
- 6.2. By way of example, if you became a Member on 6 May, you have to give notice so that there is at least one month between our receipt of your notice and the 6th day of any subsequent month, which means we have to have received your notice by the 6th of the month before. If not, your Membership will expire on the 5th of the following month. Further examples with dates:
- 6.2.1. You became a Member on 6 May, your one month’s notice is received 10 July, your Membership will end 5 September, because there is not one month between us receiving your notice and 5 August;
- 6.2.2. You became a Member on 6 May, your one month’s notice is received on 4 September, your Membership will end on 5 October because you have given one month’s clear notice.
- The reason for this policy is that Mach8zero requires at least one month to terminate benefits you have signed up to through your Membership. Benefits will generally only be available whilst you are a Member. If you have taken advantage of any benefit that post-dates the end of your Membership, you may lose the preferential rate to which you would have been entitled, had you remained a Member.
- 6.3. Termination of your Membership with Mach8zero will terminate all Membership Benefits. No refund of Membership Fees will be made in these circumstances.
- 6.4. Mach8zero may terminate this Agreement at any time with 30 days’ notice for any reason by emailing you at one of your e-mail addresses given on your Application.
- 6.5. Mach8zero may terminate this Agreement with immediate effect and without liability if:
- 6.5.1. you commit a material breach of this Agreement and fail to remedy that breach within 7 days of receiving notice from Mach8zero notifying you of the breach and requiring remedy; or
- 6.5.2. you, or any third party paying for you, fail to pay your Membership Fee within 7 days of the date of our final reminder.
- 6.6. If Mach8zero exercises its right to terminate this Agreement , it shall provide notice to you stating the reasons for termination and the effective date of termination.
- 6.7. Termination of this Agreement for any reason shall automatically terminate your Membership Benefits.
- 6.8. You may not hold yourself out as being a member of Mach8zero Premier if you are not a member.
- 6.9. After termination of your Membership, details of your Membership will be retained by Mach8zero for 12 months allowing you to re-join more conveniently. Thereafter you are free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org requesting Mach8zero to delete your data from its system.
