5. HATA Options and Recurring Payments
5.1 As at 14 March 2019, there are two ways in which you can join the HATA program:
(1) Annual Membership; and
(2) Classic "Course Only" option.
HATA ANNUAL MEMBERSHIP
5.2 The HATA Annual Membership option referenced in 5.1 (1) has two payment options:
(1) Annual Membership Full Pay Option: Paid all at once, recurring once a year.
(2) Annual Membership Monthly Option: Split into one payment immediately upon purchase, followed by 11 equal (required) monthly payments. When your Annual Membership ends 365 days from the date you join, you will then automatically be charged monthly on a recurring basis until you cancel your membership.
5.3 To be clear, both membership options are Annual Memberships. An Annual Membership is active for 365 days from the date you join with recurring payments thereafter in the manner specified in 5.2(1) and (2).
5.4 You understand that the credit card information you provide upon registration will be charged on a recurring basis either:
(1) For Annual Memberships billed yearly and set out in 5.2.(1): Each year on your annual subscription anniversary date until cancelled.
(2) For Annual Memberships billed monthly and set out in 5.2(2): Each month over the course of your Annual Membership period (with automatic recurring payments monthly thereafter until cancelled); or
5.5 If you purchase an Annual Membership (Monthly Option) and opt to leave at any point during the 365 from your date of joining, you will still be charged for the remaining months owing for your Annual Membership.
HATA CLASSIC "COURSE ONLY" OPTION
5.6 The HATA Classic "Course Only" Option referenced in 5.1 (2) above is a limited, course only version of the full HATA Annual Membership.
5.7 The HATA Classic "Course Only" Option has two payment options:
(1) Pay in Full Option: This is once off payment option.
(2) Pay in Instalments Option: This is required payment of three equal monthly instalments. You understand that the credit card information you provide upon registration will be charged automatically for all three instalments.
5.8 Students who complete the HATA Classic Course Only option may elect to upgrade to the full HATA membership. If accepted via payment on order page, there is a minimum three month commitment to the monthly recurring membership fee. After this time, the HATA member will be automatically billed monthly on a recurring 'cancel anytime' basis.
