    4.1 I accept that the Centre may, act reasonably, and by providing me with reasonable notice, close (either temporarily or permanently), relocate or redevelop the Facilities and that my membership may be terminated or suspended.

    4.3. I agree that I can only terminate this Agreement by written notice to the Centre under clauses 4.1, 4.2 or 5.1 or if my continued use of the Facilities would be detrimental to my medical, physical or mental condition and I provide evidence of that by way of a valid medical certificate completed by a registered medical practitioner.

  5. Compliance With All Applicable Rules, Terms and Regulations:
    5.1
    I undertake to comply at all times with the rules of the Centre as amended from time to time. The Centre agrees that, if any change of the rules materially reduces the value of the Facilities to me, I may terminate my membership by providing 30 days' written notice to the Centre, in which case clause 4.4 will apply.

    5.2 If I am a Massey University staff member then in addition to this Agreement I am subject to my Employment Agreement while I am at the Facilities.

    5.3 If I am a Massey University student then in addition to this Agreement I am subject to the Massey University student contract and the rules and regulations of the University while I am at the Facilities.
  6. Transfer:
    I agree that my membership is personal to me and that it is not transferable.
  7. Payment of Membership Fees:
    If I have chosen to pay the Membership Fees by lump sum, I agree to pay the membership fee for the full term of my membership immediately.
    7.1 If I have chosen to pay by instalment arrangements (whether using the services of DebitSuccess or by any other arrangement with the Centre), then I will ensure that the fees under this Agreement are paid in accordance with the instalment arrangements. I acknowledge that it is my responsibility to keep my account in funds and to pay all my own bank fees, including any fees which my bank charges if my account is overdrawn because of the deduction or payment of any instalment. If I fail to pay any instalments for any reason (including the failure of any direct debit deductions or credit card payments), in addition to any rights under any applicable DebitSuccess contract, the Centre (and/or DebitSuccess as applicable) may either add the outstanding sum to the next instalment or make additional direct debits or take additional credit card payments to recover the overdue amount, and may also charge their reasonable administration and collection costs.

    7.2 I understand that I will not be entitled to enter or use the Facilities and will be required to pay casual fees for use of the Facilities at any time when my membership fee has not been paid up to date.
  8. Complete and Accurate Disclosure:
    I agree that all information given by me to the Centre is truthful, complete and accurate. I also agree to answer any questions asked by the Centre that the Centre deems necessary in relation to my use of the Facilities.
  9. Force majeure:
    Neither party is liable for any failure or delay in performing its obligations under this Agreement by reason of strike, lockouts, industrial action, fire, storm, or other cause beyond its control, provided that this does not include a lack of funds for any reason.
  10. Right to Cancel:
    If I have chosen to pay by instalments, the Credit Contracts and Consumer Finance Act 2003 (“CCCFA”) will apply to this contract and give me a right for a short time after the terms of this contract have been disclosed to me to cancel the contract.

    10.1 How to Cancel: If the CCCFA applies and I want to cancel this contract I must give written notice to the Centre. I must also pay the cash price of any contracted services that have already been performed within 15 working days of the day I give notice.

    10.2 Time Limits for Cancellation: If the disclosure documents are handed to me directly I must give any notice that I intend to cancel within 3 working days after I receive the documents. If the disclosure documents are sent to me by electronic means (for example, email) I must give any notice that I intend to cancel within 5 working days after the electronic communication is sent. If the documents are mailed to me, I must give the notice within 7 working days after they were posted. Saturdays, Sundays, and national public holidays are not counted as working days.

    10.3 What I may have to Pay if I Cancel: If I cancel the contract the Centre can charge me the amount of any reasonable expenses the Centre had to pay in connection with the contract and its cancellation (including legal fees and fees for credit reports, etc). This statement in clause 9 only contains a summary of my rights and obligations in connection with the right to cancel. If there is anything about my rights or obligations under the Credit Contracts and Consumer Finance Act 2003 that I do not understand, if there is a dispute about my rights, or if I think that the Centre is being unreasonable in any way, I understand that I should seek legal advice immediately.
  11. Entire Agreement: I agree that this Agreement (together with any applicable terms contained in any agreement I enter into with DebitSuccess in relation to payments under this Agreement) is the entire agreement between me and the Centre and supersedes and cancels all previous agreements, understandings and arrangements (whether implied or made expressly).
  12. Invalid Clauses: If any part of this Agreement is held to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal for any reason, this Agreement will be deemed to be amended by the addition or deletion of wording necessary to remove the invalid, unenforceable or illegal part, but otherwise to retain the provisions of this Agreement to the maximum extent permissible under applicable law.
