Trial and Membership
Terms and Conditions
Where we offer you a free thirty-day trial of the Food Safety Foundation, such a free trial will start immediately after your registration and continue for the free trial offer period as indicated on the Website at the time you register. Free trial subscriptions are only available to new subscribers of the Food Safety Foundation and for the limited periods as set out on the Website. Previous subscribers or those subscribers who have already benefited from a free trial subscription to Food Safety Foundation do not qualify for a further free trial period.
The Food Safety Foundation will email a reminder that your trial is ending at least 7 days prior to you being charged. If you do not want to continue your subscription after your free trial comes to an end, you must contact us at least 24 hours before your free trial period ends by submitting a cancellation request to us via our support email address BArmentrout@FoodLeadershipGroup.com, or by canceling your free trial through your Account Dashboard. If you do not contact us at least 24 hours before your free trial period ends to cancel, your subscription will automatically continue and the payment card that you provided at the time of enrollment online will be charged the full Food Safety Foundation monthly membership subscription rate provided at the time of enrollment each month until you cancel.
The Food Safety Foundation can change the monthly membership subscription rate at any time. If the membership subscription rate changes after you subscribe, we will notify you by email and give you an opportunity to cancel.
If you wish to cancel your Food Safety Foundation subscription (including subscriptions for services) at any time after a free trial or discounted period ends, you must submit a cancellation request to us via our support email address BArmentrout@FoodLeadershipGroup.com or through your Account Dashboard. For monthly subscriptions, we require at least ten (10) days’ notice of cancellation by email. If you provide such notice less than ten (10) days before the first day of your next subscription month, your credit card may still be charged. You will not be entitled to prorate your last month’s use, nor will you be entitled to any refund for any payments to Food Safety Foundation. Food Safety Foundation in its sole discretion may charge a cancellation fee equal to the amount the subscription was discounted.
A Food Safety Foundation user is responsible for paying all sums due to Food Safety Foundation in connection with their monthly subscription in accordance with these Terms. The first fee payable in accordance with these Terms is due when the user account is set up and payment of the monthly fee is a condition of access, or after your free trial ends and you have not canceled the automatic subscription with us. Every calendar month, your account will be charged the subscription fee plus applicable tax for the following month’s subscription, together with any other fees for the following month’s subscription plus any accumulated charges for the past period (collectively, “Fees”). Failure by the Food Safety Foundation user to use any of the services available through the service provided by the Food Safety Foundation does not relieve the Food Safety Foundation user of their payment obligations under these Terms.
Potential users can pay by PayPal, credit card, or debit card. Payment details shall be collected by us through our secure financial data collection mechanism. You acknowledge and agree that we hold data relating to the transaction, including the last four digits and the expiration date of the card used to purchase the products or services together with details on when payment is due. You further acknowledge and agree that payments are due on a recurring basis in accordance with the payment terms for the specific service purchased (unless the subscription is canceled in accordance with these Terms) and therefore authorize the automatic payment collection terms applicable to that specific service (e.g., on a monthly basis and for a specific amount).
IF YOU ARE A FOOD SAFETY FOUNDATION USER WITH A MONTHLY SUBSCRIPTION AND YOU HAVE PROVIDED US WITH A VALID CREDIT OR DEBIT CARD NUMBER OR AN ALTERNATE PAYMENT METHOD, EACH PAYMENT WILL BE AUTOMATICALLY PROCESSED AT THE TIME OF YOUR DESIGNATED PAYMENT DATE (MONTHLY) AND WILL BE BILLED TO THE PAYMENT METHOD YOU PROVIDED TO US AT THE TIME OF YOUR ENROLLMENT. IF YOU WISH TO CANCEL YOUR SUBSCRIPTION TO FOOD SAFETY FOUNDATION, YOU MAY DO SO THROUGH YOUR ACCOUNT DASHBOARD OR BY EMAILING BArmentrout@FoodLeadershipGroup.com AT LEAST TEN (10) DAYS BEFORE THE FIRST DAY OF YOUR NEXT SUBSCRIPTION MONTH.
Food Safety Foundation reserves the right to immediately terminate a user’s account and/or service for any unpaid (in whole or part) period of the subscription (with or without notice). Termination of service in no way relieves or excuses the User from any obligation to pay outstanding charges or expenses. In the event Food Safety Foundation starts collection processes of any type, you will be liable for all collection costs, including legal fees and expenses.
In addition to any Fees, The Food Safety Foundation may also charge applicable value added or other tax.
