4.1 The Club would expect, in normal circumstances, to be able to permit you to renew your licensing arrangements in respect of the Club Seat(s) at the end of the Licence Period on such terms, including the amount of the Licence Fee, as may be determined by the Club in its discretion, and when such renewal is available the Club will contact you using the latest contact details supplied by you to the Club. Ordinarily, the Club would expect such communications to come out, and renewals to take place, prior to the end of the then current Season and you should ensure that your contact details held by the Club are kept up to date. However, this clause 4 does not constitute any guarantee by the Club whatsoever of any renewal, or give you any rights to renew these Terms and Conditions or any other rights in respect of the Club Seat(s) after the end of the Licence Period.

4.2 If you are a WM Member or Foundry Member and you do not renew your membership of the WM or Foundry Club (as applicable) you will also no longer be entitled to the benefits set out at clauses 7 and 8 below.

On receipt of this request and subject to availability we will use reasonable endeavours to offer you the use of alternative Club Seat(s) for the following Season.
