Membership Terms and Condition
These terms and conditions form the basis of the contract through which the Hong Kong Professional Airline Pilots Association Limited ("HKPAPA", "we" or "us") will deliver membership services (the "Services") to you as a member of HKPAPA ("member" or "you").
As an HKPAPA member, you will receive a wide range of benefits, we reserve the right to change the benefits that apply to HKPAPA membership at any time without prior notice.
Any external providers of a benefit included within your membership package will have absolute discretion in relation to the provision of services, and membership of the HKPAPA does not guarantee that the external provider will accept an application from an HKPAPA member for the provision of services.
Services supplied by an external provider will be subject to the provider’s own terms and conditions, and we do not accept any liability for loss or damage suffered as a result of a fault, error or omission in the provision of these services.
We reserve the right to change our external providers without prior notice and our decision on services provided is final.
The Membership Contract
When you submit your application to the HKPAPA, you are making an offer to subscribe to the HKPAPA which, if accepted by us, will result in a legally binding contract. At the point of renewal of your membership, your renewal payment is confirmation of the continued acceptance of this contract. You may not transfer any of your rights and obligations under these terms and conditions to another person.
Right to refuse applications
We reserve the right not to fulfil, or to cancel, your application if we are unable to obtain payment authorization from the issuer of your credit/debit card or payment by other means. If your membership application is accepted, but we subsequently discover that any or all of the information provided by you was misleading or false, we reserve the right to revoke your membership with immediate effect, without the right of appeal.
By agreeing to these terms and conditions, you agree that you will pay us the fees set out. You may make a one-off payment for a one-year membership subscription (new or renewal) by credit or debit card, in accordance with the payment information contained on the Application page of our Site. The membership is valid for 12 calendar months. No refunds will be provided. We reserve the right to increase the price of membership subscription from time-to-time.
Nothing in these terms and conditions shall exclude or limit any person's liability for death or personal injury caused by its negligence, or any person's liability for fraud.
Subject to the above, neither we nor any of our agents, licensors or delegates or our or their directors, officers or employees will be liable for any losses incurred or suffered by you, directly or indirectly in connection with:
materials provided to or by or on behalf of us being corrupted or inaccurate;
you being unable for whatever reason to access or use the Site or Services;
benefits, goods or services provided by an external provider/third-party;
any acts or omissions by you, any other HKPAPA members, or your or their personnel; or
us, or other HKPAPA members, acting on materials or communications which purport to have been made by or on behalf of you but which have been created or sent by (i) a third party purporting to act in your name, or (ii) a person who has lawful access to the Services but who exceeds his authority, regardless of whether such losses arise in contract, tort, negligence, breach of statutory duty or otherwise.
Further, neither we nor any of our agents, licensors or delegates or its or their directors, officers or employees will be liable for any indirect or consequential losses incurred or suffered by you, whether or not those losses are foreseeable.
The total aggregate liability of us to you for all losses arising out of or in connection with these terms and conditions, the Site and the Services (whether such losses arise in contract, tort, negligence, breach of statutory duty or otherwise) shall not exceed the amount of any fees received from you in the preceding 12 months.
Except as specified in these terms and conditions, all express or implied conditions, terms, representations or warranties (whether implied by statute or otherwise) are hereby excluded to the maximum extent permitted by law. These terms and conditions do not and shall not affect your statutory rights as a consumer.
Members may be invited to events organised by us or our partners, to enable HKPAPA members to gain information and make the best use of networking opportunities. If you have paid us to attend such an event, and wish to cancel, you must inform us 60 days or more before the event to get a refund of the relevant fees paid. Cancellations after that date will not be refunded, although substitute attendees can be made at any time by contacting us at
Without affecting any other rights and remedies which we may have and without liability to you for any losses which may result, we may terminate your membership without reasons and the termination of your membership will be considered final and binding.
We may change these terms and conditions at any time. The most recent edition of these terms and conditions will be binding upon you. Members may exit the contract without penalty if they do not accept any proposed variation.
Governing Law and jurisdiction
These terms and conditions are governed by the law of Hong Kong SAR. You hereby irrevocably submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the Hong Kong courts notwithstanding the jurisdiction where you are based. If any court or competent authority decides that any of the provisions of these terms are invalid, unlawful or unenforceable to any extent, the term will, to that extent only, be severed from the remaining terms, which will continue to be valid to the fullest extent permitted by the law.
