Effective: May 3rd, 2021
Any person viewing or actively engaging with our Services that is not registered or a member.
1.3 Registered Users
Registered users have created an account with us through completing a registration form. Registered users become members of IIBA® when full payment for membership has been received.
Members of IIBA® complete the registration process and have submitted full payment of the applicable membership fees.
Membership is for the specific and sole use of that registered individual. All membership fees are non-refundable, non-transferrable, and must be paid in full to receive and maintain an active IIBA® membership and continued access to the Services. All fees are subject to change.
All IIBA® members receive access to the member benefits. These Services are offered only to those members in good standing (paid in full) and can include Chapter offerings and other third-party services. These benefits may change at any time without notice.
In addition, all IIBA® members may vote on IIBA® matters, participate in our Annual General Meetings, and engage in other opportunities such as volunteering or engaging in the Board of Directors.

2.2 Your Account
You must keep your password a secret. You will not share your account with anyone else.
Registered Users and Members are account holders. You agree to: (1) use a strong password and keep it confidential; (2) not transfer any part of your account, and (3) follow the law, any guidelines, terms, or practices outlined by IIBA® for our Services.
You will honour your payment obligations and you must submit payment in full (including applicable taxes) to access our Services. We calculate taxes payable by you based on the billing information that you provide us at the time of purchase. You can get a copy of your invoice through your account profile.
Unless otherwise indicated, payments for our Services are non-transferrable and non-refundable. This applies to membership, certification applications, products and other Services offered by IIBA®. All prices displayed for our Services are subject to change from time to time.
Automatic renewal is a convenient way to annually renew your memberships and subscriptions before they expire. Each year, your primary credit card will automatically be charged the relevant fees for that renewal period. By opting in for automatic renewal, you hereby authorize IIBA on an automatic basis annually to:
- Renew your IIBA membership
- Charge the applicable membership fees to the credit card that you place on file
Automatic renewals will be processed on the last day of the month of your renewal term. If you do not wish to proceed with automatic renewal for an upcoming membership year, you must opt out before the second week of your renewal month through your member profile under payment methods.
Any fees not received in USD and other partial payments will require full payment in USD. Registered users will receive an email of outstanding fees and will have 30 days to make a full payment. If full payment is not received, Services will not be activated. A charge of $35.00 will be applied to all NSF cheques processed by IIBA®.
Any surplus payments received for membership fees will pro-rate your membership expiry date appropriately.
