Classes are available according to times stated in the Metta Box booking system. Classes and instructors are subject to change with no prior notice.
The Member is responsible for the payment of the membership. This is true even if the amount is debited directly by Metta Box. Agreed price only applies if the Member pays according to the agreed conditions.
Annual subscription membership (paid monthly over 12 months): the first month’s payment or pro-rata amount are paid at the point of this agreement. The following monthly payments should be paid before each new month. The member is responsible for all payments, also in the case of automatic debits by Metta Box.
If the payment is late the member will receive a reminder email from Metta Box and access may be suspended. The membership continues to run even if the access is suspended. If after 30 days the amount is still not paid, the Member is in violation of the contract and the total outstanding amount of the contract will be due. Metta Box may transfer the case to a debt collector, which will add additional fees.
Monthly month’s payment or pro rata amount and any sign-up fee are paid at the point of this agreement. The Member has given approval for an automatic debit from his/her account or card and the cancellation must be announced a minimum of one month before the next debit.

The member is responsible for his/her own cancellation, even if the email reminder was not received.
Monthly membership: the membership extension is triggered by the payment of a subsequent month. If no payment is done, the membership stops at the end of the contracted month. If the Member has opted for a direct debit from an account or card, the cancellation must be announced at the latest one month before the end by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
