5. Website Disclaimer

5.1 The IAM does not accept liability of any description, including for negligence (except for personal injury or death), damages or losses (including, but not limited to, indirect or consequential loss, or loss of business, revenue, profits, use or opportunity) howsoever arising from your use (or inability to use) this Website or Contents.

6. Trading Disclaimer

6.1 IAM Trading Ltd is VAT registered and wholly-owned by The Institute of Asset Management (a Company Limited by Guarantee).

6.2 The IAM supplies much of its material free of charge to both Members and non-Members. However, we charge for membership subscription for various grades of membership, some events, and we supply some products and services for sale.

6.3 The following terms and conditions apply for the following purchasable items:

(a) Membership subscriptions: Membership subscriptions are non-refundable once an application has been accepted and paid. We understand that you will not renew your membership if you are not satisfied and we ask that any complaints or concerns are raised with us as soon as possible.

(b) Event bookings: Events are usually charged by means of selling tickets for entry. In some cases, deposits or early full payment will attract a significant discount. If the event is cancelled, full refunds will be available. In any other circumstances, such as failing to attend for example, the IAM does not offer refunds. In exceptional circumstances the IAM will consider application for a refund but reserves the right to make an administration charge or to retain the payment as credit to be used on another IAM event within 12 months of cancellation.

(c) Products: Products that have been purchased through the IAM are non-refundable, unless undelivered. The IAM recommends courier services both for speed and certainty of delivery. The items are described fully in appropriate pages of our Website and our Office is available to discuss their relevance before purchase.

(d) Services: Services are subject to specific additional Terms & Conditions, available on appropriate pages of our Website. For the benefit of Members, the IAM lists events and products provided by partner organisations or others, which not imply or create a contractual relationship with the IAM. Any bookings or payments for events or products not provided by the IAM are therefore subject to the terms and conditions of those organisations.
