    tional Club versus Primary Club. The Executive Committee’s decision is final and may not be appealed. The reason for terminating or not renewing a membership will not be given.
  • 13.3  Members will be given one month’s notice prior to their annual renewal date. For those Members who have opted to store their payment details securely in our payment processing platform, the annual subscription will be charged automatically on the date of renewal. If the subscription is not settled by the renewal date, 14 days’ grace period will be given. Following this, the Member will be considered overdue and Club access will not be granted.

Second Members are required to inform the Secretary in writing of any change in circumstance which would no longer entitle them to be a Second Member, and the change in rate will apply at their next renewal date.
  • 13.7  A Member may freeze their Membership one time throughout the lifetime of their Membership. This request must be submitted in writing within 30 days of their renewal date to avoid termination for non-payment. The length of the freeze is one year and cannot be extended or shortened.

Upon reinstatement, their annual subscriptions will remain at their original Membership tier unless the subscription has been increased across all membership tiers, in which case, the new rate will apply. The above also applies to International membership.

Should a Membership be terminated for non-payment and the Member wants to reactivate their Membership within one year from termination, they may do so by paying the backdated amount to their original renew- al date at the current rate of their original Membership tier. Should a Membership be terminated for non-payment and the Member wants to reactivate their Membership after one year from termination, they may do so but at the current rate and may need to resubmit an application.

OUR LIFESTYLE SERVICES & PRODUCTS

  1. Types of requests

Requests to our Luxury Goods division may be accepted or denied. However, we reserve our rights to cancel the same in case in circumstances beyond our reasonable control or in the event of Force Majeure event. In such cases the Company shall not be held liable or responsible thereof.

  1.   Ordering goods and services from third party suppliers.

The terms in this section apply when, on your instruction, we:

  1. a) purchase goods and/or services or make bookings or reservations on your behalf from one or more supplier(s) that we have identified, recommended, sourced or otherwise selected for you, or that you have requested (a “Supplier”);
  2. b) facilitate your purchase of goods and/or services, or your making of any booking or reservation, from any Supplier by acting as an intermediary, conduit or booking platform, or by taking the relevant payment(s);
  3. c) act as the agent of any Supplier to contract with you for the provision of goods or services, or to make any booking or reservation; ord) undertake any other services that we have agreed from time to time, each a “Lifestyle Service”, and “Lifestyle Services” shall be construed accordingly. The purchases set out at a) to d) above shall be referred to in these Terms as “Lifestyle Purchases”.

The terms in this section 4 do not apply where we provide you with a link or other details for you to order goods or services from a Supplier direct and without any further involvement from us (if this is the case, please see section 1.2 above).

In most cases, some separate terms and conditions (either in addition to, or instead of, this section 4) will apply to a Lifestyle Service. If so, we will make these separate terms and conditions clear to you before we agree the relevant Lifestyle Service.

When we make introductions, we endeavour to choose Suppliers whom we feel might be suitable for you. However, any introductions we make should not be construed as an endorsement by Alesya de Monaco of such Supplier, or of any advice that such Supplier may give you, and you are responsible for ensuring the suitability of any third party with whom you deal(including checking the suitability, quality or merit of any goods or services that they may offer). This remains the case when Alesya de Monaco is acting as the agent and contracting on behalf of any such third party

(a “Principal”).

‍You are responsible for paying for all Lifestyle Services ordered via our Services, regardless of the beneficiary or beneficiaries of such Lifestyle Services. For example, if you book a table at a restaurant, you are responsible for paying the bill for that table (although of course guests may pay separately if they wish, in which case you will not be double-charged).

Some Lifestyle Services (such as restaurant bookings, for example) may be subject to acceptance or confirmation from the applicable Supplier. Although we try to ensure that all availability displayed on the Service is accurate, restaurants may cancel or amend bookings after they have been confirmed. We are not responsible for any cancelled or amended bookings.

If you wish to amend any Lifestyle Service after your order has been confirmed, you may need to discuss this with the Supplier direct. We cannot guarantee that the Supplier will be able to accommodate any changes.

The price for any Lifestyle Services (including any applicable taxes) will be the price we advise you (by email, on our App, over the telephone or in person) before we complete your order unless we have agreed another price in writing. Prices may include fees charged by Alesya de Monaco and/or third parties as applicable (including, without limitation, third party suppliers and booking agents). We take reasonable care to ensure that the prices of Lifestyle Services advised to you are correct, but please see section 4.2 below for what happens if we discover an error in the price of the Lifestyle Services you order.

If the rate of any applicable taxes changes between your order date and the date we provide the Lifestyle Services, we will adjust the rate of the applicable tax that you pay, unless you have already paid for the Lifestyle Services in full before the change in the rate of tax takes effect.

  1.   Price changes in Lifestyle Services & Products

It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the Lifestyle Services & Products we agree may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices before accepting your order so that, where the correct price of the Lifestyle Service at your order date is less than our stated price at your order date, we will charge the lower amount. If the correct price of the Lifestyle Service at your order date is higher than the price that we advised you (or we agreed in writing), we will contact you for your instructions before we accept your order. If we accept and process your order where a pricing error is obvious and unmistakable and could reasonably have been recognised by you as a mispricing, we may cancel the contract for the Lifestyle Service(s) in question, refund you any sums (without any interest) you have paid and not arrange for the Lifestyle Service(s) to be provided to you.

  1.   Payment requirements for Lifestyle Services & Products

We may ask you to pay for your Lifestyle Services before we finalise your order by card.

You must pay all amounts due for the Lifestyle Services  & Products (“Lifestyle Services Fees”) in full without set-off, counterclaim, deduction or withholding (except for any deduction or withholding required by law). We may at any time, without limiting any of our other rights or remedies, set off any amount owing to us against any amount payable by you to us, whether such liability is present or future, liquidated or unliquidated, and whether or not the liability arises under these Terms.

If you think any payment or invoice for Lifestyle Services Fees is wrong please contact us promptly to let us know and we will endeavour to resolve the issue.

Failure to pay for Lifestyle Services in accordance with these Terms may result in the termination of your membership. All payments for Lifestyle Services payable to us by you shall become immediately due and payable on termination of your membership for any reason.

For the avoidance of doubt, any discrepancies or mistake in the pricing shall not hold the Company liable or responsible and/ or in default of its obligations under the term and conditions herein set forth.

  1.   Card payments

If you pay for Lifestyle Services & Products by card, you acknowledge and agree that we may pre-authorise your payment and all bank charges shall be your sole responsibility.

If you pay for Lifestyle Purchases using the App, we will email you a copy of your receipt.

In the event that your payment card is lost or stolen you agree that it is your responsibility immediately to contact the applicable card company in order to cancel your payment card.

  1.   Fair Use Policy

The Lifestyle Services we render to you are subject to a Fair Use Policy. In any given membership year, we will service no more than 24 (twenty four) Personal Briefs from any given member. Personal Briefs are requests requiring bespoke research on your behalf by the Alesya de Monaco team. Once you have reached the maximum of 24 in a given year, such requests will no longer be serviced by Velocity until your following membership year.

  1.   Limitations in services

We reserve the right to refuse to service any request, at our sole discretion. We are under no obligation to give a reason as to why we refuse, although we may from time to time.
