TGW investigations and other events requiring payment

When you put your name down for such investigations and other events be aware that you are then committed to pay the full and final cost due per member.
These payments will be not be refundable should you pull-out unless we can find a suitable replacement to take your place.

If you are not 100% certain that you can attend, then do not put your name down.
If you later decide that you can attend but the investigation/event is full, you will be placed on a reserve-list as a potential replacement should anyone be forced to pull-out due to unforeseen circumstances.

It is each member's own responsibility to be aware of such investigation/event dates and times, and also the payment deadlines for these which will be clearly posted in the Forums.
Therefore, we recommend that you check the Forums regularly, or at least once or twice each week.
Should you have computer problems and are unable to do so, please let one of the Team know.


Unless you have contacted a member of the Team concerning computer problems, members of the "Investigator Group" who have not logged into the Forums for a period exceeding 1 month will be removed from that group (without prior notice) and will no longer be able to participate in any activities.

Unless you have contacted a member of the Team concerning computer problems, any members who have not logged into the Forums for a period exceeding 3 months may have their accounts and membership cancelled without prior notice.
We reserve the right to retain any posts you have made on the Forums and to retain any contributions you may have made to the main site.

We reserve the right to terminate any membership for any reason we see fit and do not have to give an explanation or prior warning.
If membership is terminated by either you or ourselves, we reserve the right to retain any posts you have made on the Forums and to change or delete your name and/or username or, if we so decide, we reserve the right to delete your forum account and any associated posts entirely.
If membership is terminated by either you or ourselves, we reserve the right to retain any information and any associated material(s) published on the site (or yet to be published on the site) concerning your experiences during any property investigation, walkabouts or any other event organised by "Thanet GhostWatch" or "Thanet GhostWatch Property Investigation" or, if we so decide, we reserve the right to remove any such material(s).
