Terms & Conditions

OSH24 LTD TERMS AND CONDITIONS

Introduction and acceptance.

This is a contract between you (the Customer) and us (OSH24 Ltd). The agreement describes the services and terms on which we will provide services to you, how we will work together and other aspects of our business relationship. It is a legal document, so some of the language used, is necessary “legalese”, but we have tried to make it as easy to read as possible. These terms are so important that we cannot provide our products and services to you unless you agree with them.

By accessing, registering, using or downloading any materials from the OSH24 website (Site), you agree to follow and be bound by the Terms, which may be updated by OSH24 Ltd from time-to-time. You can view the latest version of our Terms and Conditions at any time at the Terms and Conditions page on this Site. OSH24 and its third-party providers may make improvements or changes to the products, services, mobile applications, features, programs, or prices described in this Site at any time without notice. Certain provisions of the Terms may be supplemented or superseded by expressly designated legal notices or terms located on particular pages on this Site. If you do not agree to these Terms and Conditions, please do not use this Site.

By using the membership subscription service, you agree to these terms.

We may periodically update these terms, and if you have an active OSH24 membership, we will let you know when we do through email. You can find archived versions of the terms here. We know legal terms can sometimes be difficult to navigate. Therefore we wanted to give you a roadmap of this Agreement:

DEFINITIONS

Site is the OSH24 website that serves as the main interface concerning this service between you and OSH24 Ltd.

  2. Maintain and promptly update the User Data to keep it accurate and current.

 

You agree that OSH24 may use your User Data to provide services on the Site for which you have expressed interest.  This User Data is also used to populate the different Health and Safety forms within the Site, so it is also in your interest to keep this data current.

If you provide any information that is inaccurate or not current, or OSH24 has reasonable grounds to suspect that such information is inaccurate or not current, OSH24 has the right to suspend or terminate your account and refuse any and all current or future use of the Site. In consideration of your use of the Site, you represent that you are of legal age to form a binding contract and are not a person barred from receiving services under the laws of any applicable jurisdiction.

MEMBERSHIP FEES AND PAYMENTS

If you choose to become a member of OSH24, you must designate and provide information about your preferred payment method (e.g., credit card, online payment service or any other payment method made available by OSH24) (“Payment Method”). You may switch to a different Payment Method or update your information by visiting the “Account” page or by contacting us by email at support@osh24.co.nz.  Your account will be activated upon entering the basic registration details, confirming that you have read this Terms and Conditions and by entering your payment information.

You will only be charged for your membership fees after the initial 30-day free trial. You agree to pay all membership fees and other charges incurred in connection with your username and password for your OSH24 account.

The following may apply to your membership:

  1. We give our subscribers the first month free as a trial; therefore, we do not subject our first stage subscriber to payment.
  2. A non-refundable Activation Fee is payable for all online prepaid Memberships (unless waived as a promotional offer).
  3. Unless in accordance with the suspension of Membership or where a Membership has been cancelled in accordance with these Terms, Your Membership Fees shall remain payable throughout the Membership period irrespective of your use of the facility.
  4. We also offer a money back guarantee on all Membership Options purchased online, no questions asked. This means that if you change your mind and for any reason decide that You do not want to continue with your Membership, you can notify Us of your decision to cancel within the first 60 days of applying and We will not charge you, we will refund the payment the month current at the time of cancellation. All activation, joining and Membership fees paid in advance will be refunded, providing that you have not waived your right to cancellation by receiving Membership benefits during this period.
  5. You will need to purchase a new Membership in order to continue using the facilities if your existing Membership expires without a renewal being put in place, or if any due payment is missed. Such new Memberships may attract the usual Joining Fee / Activation Fee and/or Advance payment charges (where applicable).

Monthly prepaid membership

  1. Where You join as a Monthly Prepaid Member, You must pay by direct debit (charged through one of our Payment Providers). You will be notified of your direct debit date at the time of joining.
  2. Monthly direct debits are a full binding contract between Us and You and will automatically continue until You notify Us otherwise in writing.
  3. Failure to make any due payment will result in the Membership being suspended and further admission to all relevant facilities will be denied until all outstanding payments have been made.
  4. We retain the right to recover all outstanding balances including activity fees.
  5. All Membership Option prices are reviewed from time to time and at least once per calendar year. If Your Membership Fees is paid by direct debit and are changed, We will notify You at least ten working days in advance by email and/or by letter.

FEES RENEWAL

You may elect to pay membership fees on a monthly or annual basis.  All membership fees are payable in advance.  Membership fees will be billed automatically to the Payment Method at the start of the monthly or annual period (as applicable) and will auto-renew until your membership is terminated.  The renewal membership fees will be the same as the initial charges unless you are otherwise notified in advance. You authorise OSH24 to charge your Payment Method for the appropriate membership charges and for any other purchases you elect to make via the Site.  OSH24 reserves the right to increase membership fees or to institute new fees at any time upon reasonable notice posted in advance on this Site.  Members changing from monthly to annual memberships will have the annual rates take effect at the beginning of the next billing date. If you upgrade your membership or add new categories of service to your account, such changes may result in a new billing date effective upon the date you elect such upgrade or addition.

CANCELLATION

You may cancel your membership at any time by visiting your “Account” page. The cancellation of membership will go into effect at the end of your current billing cycle, and you will continue to have the same level of access to the Site through the remainder of such billing cycle. When your membership ends, you will lose access to any data that you may have entered.  OSH24 will not provide refunds or credits upon cancellation (other than the initial 60-day no questions asked cancellation). You can renew your subscription at any time without opening a new account, provided that additional fees may apply if you decide to restart your membership again at a later date.
