ABPM TERMS of SERVICE
January 16, 2020
Membership Term duration is one year from the activation of membership. Active membership is defined as the membership period in which members are in Good Standing (as defined below). Expiration Date is defined as the date through which ABPM membership is valid. Upon expiration, member benefits will be stopped, access to ABPM content will be limited to the public areas of the web site, and any other additional member benefits outside of those offered on the web site will be denied.
Renewal is defined as the process of continuing membership for a subsequent one-year term. A grace period of forty-five days after the expiration date is given for access to the member section of the web site, however additional benefits will be denied during that grace period. Membership will be deactivated 60 days after expiration or when notification is received that the member does not intend to renew, whichever comes first.
Member Status refers to a member’s standing in their ABPM Membership Term, and varies based on the status of payment during the membership. Member statuses are:
- In Good Standing: Member has completed their initial or renewal membership purchase and has not reached their expiration date.
- Invoice Pending: An individual’s membership payment has not processed, or has not been received. These individuals are not active members in good standing, and their membership term has not yet started.
- Past Due: If the expiration date has passed and a member has not renewed, a member’s standing will show ‘Past Due’ up to 60 days past the expiration date.
- Terminated: Membership lapsed more than 60 days.
- Cancelled: Member elected to terminate their membership by contacting ABPM.
1.2. About Membership
You are not required to purchase a membership for use of the public side of ABPM.com. However, if you do not purchase an annual membership, you will not have access to the member content and resources section of ABPM.com or receive the many other benefits listed in the link below.
You can review ABPM member benefits here. ABPM reserves the right to modify the content, type, and availability of any member benefit at any time. Typically, those changes are enhancements rather than reductions. All ABPM membership benefits are valid for a Membership Term of one year from the activation of membership.
Only one person may use the email address and password associated with a membership account.
1.3. Processing and Payment
ABPM accepts payment via all major credit cards, check, or Automated Clearing House payment. We reserve the right to reject any order or purchase at any time.
When you purchase an annual membership, the price will be made clear during the order process. You agree to pay the price that is stated at the time of your order.
All prices are in United States Dollars, unless otherwise stated.
Though rare, ABPM reserves the right to change annual membership dues. Members will receive notification of changes via email.
1.5.1. Billing of One-Year Membership Terms
Membership is billed at the initiation of the membership process. Once we charge or debit your payment method, your membership is considered active for one year from your join date.
1.5.2. Renewal Billing
An email notification that your ABPM membership is due for renewal will be sent 60, 30, and 5 days prior to expiration date. Renewals are made by logging in to the ABPM.com member portal and choosing “Membership Renewal” from the left column.
Members can log in to their member profile at ABPM.com to review enrollment status and to make any changes to their membership profile.
Questions and concerns may be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
2. CANCELLATION AND REFUND POLICY
2.1. Cancellation and Refunds of Membership
Memberships may be cancelled at any time within the first 30 days of membership for a full refund. After 30 days, memberships may be cancelled, but all membership dues will be forfeited and no refund will be issued. Following cancelation, members will have access to ABPM benefits through the end of the current membership year if that year has been paid in full.
Cancellations by ABPM: If we feel the membership is being mis-used or is being used in a way that is not beneficial to the ABPM community, we reserve the right to suspend or terminate the membership, with or without notice, and without further obligation. You will not be entitled to a refund in these circumstances. We reserve the right to issue refunds or credits at our sole discretion.
2.2. Transfer of Membership
Memberships belong to the company that paid for the membership and may be transferred if the person assigned to that membership leaves their company or department. Memberships may not be transferred for the purpose of receiving member discounts at ABPM events. To transfer a membership, simply contact email@example.com
