Hive Members Terms and Conditions

Terms and conditions

Our aim is to ensure that you have a positive and enjoyable experience throughout your time in Membership with the Hive Network. We also hope you will benefit from all services and opportunities we offer to members. The following terms and conditions therefore are intended to be as simple as possible.


  1. Hive Membership is open to companies and other organisations regardless of their location who have an interest and commitment to Blackburn with Darwen. Members do not have to have a base in Blackburn or Darwen in order to become a Member.
  2. Hive Membership is a business entitlement rather than a personal one. All employees of the Member are therefore entitled to access Hive’s benefits and services when working on behalf of their Member employer subject to specific terms and conditions which may apply.
  3. Membership in the first year is valid from when payment of the annual membership fee is received by the Hive CIC. Annual membership will run from November 1st to October 31st (Membership Year). The membership fee is non apportionable for a member joining part way through a Membership Year.
  4. By signing this form you understand and consent that the data supplied will be held on Hive CIC’s computerised database [and hosted on Blackburn with Darwen Council’s servers].

This is an integral part of the Membership and by entering into Membership you agree to be contacted by Hive. The regular communication can be terminated at the Member’s request at any time.
  6. Members are entitled and encouraged to take advantage of the various opportunities that Hive offers, however any agreement between the Member and Hive’s partners are strictly between the two parties, and are not the responsibility of Hive.
  7. The Hive Membership fee is non-refundable, unapportionable and Membership is non-transferable.
  8. As soon as payment is processed, your membership and all its services are instantly considered ‘active’.
  9. The Membership is subject to approval from the Steering Group and Hive reserves a right to refuse Membership without disclosing any reason.
  10. Membership is subject to the provisions of the Articles of Association of Hive (available on request) and in the event of a conflict between these terms and conditions and the Articles of Association, the Articles of Association shall prevail.
  11. Hive shall have no liability for any losses suffered by a Member as a result of using services offered by a fellow Member.
