By signing up for a Membership with the Aesthetic and Beauty Industry Council (ABIC), you agree to these Terms and Conditions.
Membership is not a right, it is a benefit for community members who follow our reasonable rules and treat other community members well. ABIC hopes you will stay a member for a long time, but we reserve the right to decide whether your usage of your ABIC membership is in keeping with these terms. ABIC can suspend or terminate your membership at any time for any of the following reasons, if you:
a) Breach of these terms.
b) Act in a way that is not in line with the values of our community
c) Act in a way that may harm ABIC or our members.
a) You choose not to renew
b) The Aesthetic and Beauty Industry Council (ABIC) deems you to be in violation of ABIC Standards and terminates your membership by written notification of said breach; or for any other reason as set forth in ABIC's Terms and Conditions.
Applications for membership with ABIC are reviewed by the ABIC Board. An applicant whose membership application is not approved by the ABIC Board will have their fees refunded. Board decisions are final, and no correspondence will be entered. Refunds will be credited to the original payment method.
