These terms tell you who we are, how you and we may change or end the contract, what to do if there is a problem and other important information. By completing and submitting your Mothership registration application via the Guilty Mothers Club website (guiltymothers.co.uk) (“Website”), you agree to be bound by these terms and conditions.

  2. What is included in my membership?
    • A description of what is included in your Mothership membership is available on the Website (as updated from time to time). The Mothership section of the Website contains text, software, scripts, graphics, information, data, pictures, sounds, music, videos, interactive features, user generated information, editorial and other content accessible by Mothership members (“Mothership Materials”) 
    • We expect you to confirm that the Mothership membership will meet your needs.  We do not make any guarantee to you that you will obtain a particular skill, result, qualification or employment opportunity from your Mothership membership.
  3. How is a contract formed?
    • By submitting your payment and other registration details via the Website you are making an offer to us to buy a Mothership membership subscription.
    • Your offer will be accepted by us and a contract formed only when we have verified your payment details and sent you a confirmation email to the email address you have given to us.
  4. How much will my Mothership membership cost?
    • The price you pay for your monthly subscription will be stated on the relevant web page of the Website from which you began the membership ordering process. Such price will be re-confirmed to you as part of the ordering process. These prices, where applicable, are inclusive of a sum representing UK VAT.
    • It is your responsibility to pay any charges that might be applied by your bank or payment provider in paying for your monthly subscription. By submitting payment details to us, you promise that you are entitled to purchase a membership subscription using those payment details.
    • We reserve the right to change the monthly membership price and / or benefits with 30 days’ notice and affected members may terminate their subscription within this notice period.
  5. How long is my membership for?
    • Your membership is subject to a minimum contract term of 1 month. Thereafter, your membership will automatically renew each month unless you choose to cancel your membership.
  6. Cancellation by you
    • How can I cancel my membership? You may cancel your membership at any time by visiting your personal profile within the Mothership website OR by emailing hello@guiltymothersclub.co.uk from your registered email address. Unless you are ending your membership in accordance with clause 6.3, your membership will terminate on the final day of the month in which we receive your cancellation notice. For example if we receive your cancellation notice on the 15th day of a month, your membership will terminate on the final day of such month, whereupon all membership benefits will cease. Unless you are terminating in accordance with clause 6.3, you will not be entitled to any pro-rata refund of the monthly membership fee. Taking the example above, if we receive your cancellation notice on 15th day of a month, you shall not be entitled to a pro-rata refund of the monthly membership fee for the period after the 15th day of the month but you shall continue to enjoy all membership benefits until the end of such month.
    • Is there a cooling-off period? By submitting your payment and other registration details via the Website, you are requesting and agreeing that we may start your membership and provide you with access to the Mothership Materials as soon as possible following our acceptance of your order. Please note that you have 14 days after the day we email you to confirm we accept your membership registration to change your mind and cancel your subscription, provided that you have not accessed the Mothership Materials during that 14 day period. If you do access the Mothership Materials within the 14-day period, you acknowledge that you are not entitled to a refund if you then change your mind and cancel your subscription. If you exercise your right to change your mind and cancel your membership in the 14-day period set out above, we will refund you the price you paid for your membership.
    • Ending your membership because of something we have done or going to do. If you are ending your membership for one of the following reasons, the contract between us will end immediately once we have received your notice to cancel your membership and we will refund you in full for any part of your monthly membership that relates to the period after we have received your cancellation notice:
      • we have told you about a change to the monthly membership price and / or membership benefits and you do not agree (see section 4.3); or
      • we have told you about some other significant change to your membership or these terms and conditions and you do not agree (see section 10.1); or
      • we have told you about an error in the price or description of the membership you have ordered and you do not wish to proceed.

  1. What do I need?
    • We use third party providers such as Facebook and Slack to host the online community. Mothership members will be required to accept the individual terms and conditions of such third party providers which, for the avoidance of doubt, we are not associated with. It is not necessary to do so in order to purchase a Mothership membership although this may impact your experience of the community element.
