You must not provide us with inaccurate or incomplete information during the registration process or at any other time. All memberships must be registered with a current and valid email address that you access, and have permission to access, regularly. At any stage we may require you to validate your email address if we suspect that an invalid email address or an email address which you do not have permission to use is registered to your membership.
Payment of the membership fee must be made online at the time of registration by credit or debit card and must be renewed each year. The credit and debit cards that are accepted from time to time will be described on this Website. A surcharge may apply for the use of certain credit or debit cards and where this is the case this will also be described on this Website.

A record and/or copy of this photo ID may be retained by us to minimise the risk of fraudulent credit card usage and for verification purposes with your credit card provider in the event of a dispute.
Period of Membership
Membership continues for a period of 12 months from the date of your registration. Prior to the expiry of this period, we will notify you that your membership is due for renewal. If you wish to renew your membership, you will be required to pay the then current yearly membership fee.

Each member is entitled to one Welcome Pack only upon new or renewed registration to the program.
The welcome pack will include your GASGC membership card.

Any refund will only be made back to the same credit or debit card which was used to make the initial payment of the membership fee.
