Some of the Services are available to members only and to access these you will first be required to register for an account through the Website (Subscription) and, where relevant, pay the applicable fee for the selected Subscription (Subscription Fee). Where your Subscription requires a Subscription Fee you will be billed in advance on a recurring, periodic basis (each period is called a “billing cycle”). Billing cycles are annual. Your Subscription will automatically renew at the end of each billing cycle unless you cancel auto-renewal by contacting SCC at hello@socialchangecentral.com. You may cancel auto-renewal on your Subscription at any time, in which case your Subscription will continue until the end of the current billing cycle before terminating.

Details of our membership packages and associated Subscription Fees are set out in the Website, as amended from time to time. You agree and acknowledge that SCC can vary the Subscription Fee at any time and that the varied Subscription Fee will come into effect following the conclusion of the current billing cycle.

Subscription Fees must be paid annually in advance by electronic payment as indicated on the Website.
