Guaranteed priority listing
All listings will be displayed in order of priority. Free listings will have the lowest priority and therefore be displayed after the Standard Listings, with Premium Listings having the highest priority and therefore shown before Standard Listings. A Premium Listing does not guarantee that you will have your company listed in position number 1, but it will guarantee that your listing does appear before Standard and Free Listings.
Standing Order Payments
You may choose a standing order method of payment for particular products and service offers from the Monster Business. If you choose this option, the first payment will become due upon completion of the order. An invoice will be emailed to you shortly after you receive your order confirmation. This invoice will cover your first month’s payment and you must pay this by cheque or bank transfer within 14 days. You will also receive a standing order mandate, which you must use to ask your bank to make the specified regular payments, by either:
- Using your bank’s online facilities to set-up a Standing Order, if such facilities are available from them, OR
- Printing the mandate out and sending a completed and signed copy to your bank
Standing order payment dates will be set by the date which you place your order, thereby allowing 1 month to ensure that the standing order is in place. Upon receipt of the correct standing order payments, the Monster Business will forward an electronic VAT receipt of payment for your records.
Standing orders will be for a minimum 12-month period. Upon completion of the 12th payment the contract will convert to a rolling monthly basis, and as such, you will not be expected to recommit for your listing; it will simply continue on the standing order payment system.
If you cancel your standing order payments before the initial 12-month period has elapsed, an invoice will be sent to you for the outstanding balance and this must be paid in full within 14 days.
Should you wish to cancel your subscription you can simply email us and tender your notice, which will be executed the month following your last payment. For example:
If you placed your original purchase order on the 9th of June 2010 and you tendered your cancellation on the 17th June 2012, your last standing order payment date would be the 9th July 2012. You would remain listed until 9th August 2012 as you are effectively paying a month in advance when you start the contract.
We reserve the right to remove and/or restrict your use of any products and services of the Monster Business that are subject to a standing order payment method and where your payments are not kept up-to-date.
Networking Event Refunds
The Monster Business operates a ‘no holds barred refund policy’ for its networking events.
We understand that there will be occasions when circumstances mean that you cannot attend a networking event which you have prepaid for, just as there will be times when, due to exceptional circumstances, a networking event may need to be cancelled/rescheduled. This refund policy therefore seeks to protect all parties when such eventualities arise.
What you can expect from the Monster Business:
In the unlikely event that we cancel a networking meeting that you have pre-paid to attend, your place will be ‘carried forward’ to the next event or, alternatively, you may choose to receive a refund. This refund will be processed on the next working day following the scheduled event and the amount will be repaid in full to the same card that you used to pay for your place.
What is expected of you:
You may cancel your pre-paid networking event place up to 72 hours prior to the event’s scheduled start date/time and receive a full refund (less an administration chare of £1.50). You must email email@example.com to qualify for your refund.
Note: Telephone cancellations cannot be accepted.
You may also postpone your attendance at the event up to 24 hours prior to the event’s scheduled date/time. You must email firstname.lastname@example.org to notify us that you wish to postpone. You will not receive a refund in this instance, but your place will be ‘carried forward’ to the next event. Please note that you can only carry forward your place to the next meeting of the event or to the next meeting of another Monster Business Networking event within the region. If you choose not to attend the next event then your pre-paid place will be deemed to have expired and no refund will be due.
Should the Monster Business not receive notification by the agreed periods, as laid out previously, and in the correct format, i.e. by email, then no refund will be offered.
