No responsibility can be accepted by EEA for any act or omission resulting from the use of information or services contained within this website. The content of this website is for information only and is not intended to be a substitute for legal advice.

We will only use the information collected from you in accordance with the UK’s Data Protection Act or as legally obliged by UK Government authorities.

We will not divulge your information to any third party now or at any time in future without first asking for your permission. You can check and change any information that we hold in your account page.

We are GDPR complaint. Read the Members Privacy Notice 

2. EEA Membership
Membership to the Equestrian Employers Association is for 12 months and is non refundable or transferable.

Payment is by annual Direct Debit. The initial payment must be collected by the EEA prior to the member cancelling the Direct Debit. The member is liable to pay the full cost of membership if the initial Direct Debit is not collected. The EEA will contact the member if a cancellation occurs prior to this first settlement of fees. 

All membership cancellations must be received in writing to 

By signing up to become a member of the Equestrian Employers Association, you are becoming a member with voting rights, if there is a vote. Members subscribe automatically to the Memorandum and Articles of the Association and accept the standard £1.00 liability for the Company. Members also agree to receive all notifications electronically by email. 

Payments will appear on your bank statement and in communications as BGA EEA Membership.

3. Website information

The information on this website is for information purposes only and the EEA takes no responsibility for the actions taken as a result of the advice given.  It is recommended that you obtain independent legal advice if required.

4. Payment
Your payment will be taken from your bank account on an annual basis at the end of the month. If you wish to cancel your Direct Debit, please inform your bank and the EEA in plenty of time before your membership is due for renewal.

If you do not want to renew your membership you should contact us by email at any point within your 12 month period and no later than 5pm on the working day preceding your renewal date. If you cancel after your bank has processed your direct debit there will be an admin charge of £5 deducted from any refund requested. You are required to inform us if you change your correspondence address (both email and postal). We will not be liable for any non-receipt of communication from us, including non-receipt of the renewal reminder.

There is a 14-day ‘cooling off’ period following the start of a new or renewed EEA membership during which time you are legally entitled to cancel it. However, if the member has logged in to visit the site, use the services/tools, it is presumed that the membership services have been utilised and thus the cooling off period is therefore exempted. 

If you realise the error within this period, then you must contact us immediately to cancel, although you may incur some pro-rata costs for the time lapsed and £5.00 administration charge. 

Subject to any other statutory rights you may have, we do not provide refunds for any cancellations after the expiry of the cooling off period.

Duplicate memberships will be treated as individual memberships. The EEA holds no responsibility for duplication, it is for the individual to cancel their second membership. No refunds will be issued in the case of duplicate memberships. 

5. EEA Confidentiality Code

What it means for YOU - Everything you tell us will be in absolute confidence. No-one outside of EEA will be informed without your consent, except in the very exceptional circumstances detailed below, when we would have a duty to disclose. Even in these circumstances, wherever possible, your consent would be sought.

What it means for US
Everyone who works within EEA is required to follow this confidentiality code no matter who they are. Exceptional circumstances:

  • If there is a risk of harm to you or to others
  • If there is, or is likely to be, a serious breach of national security

6. Code of Good Employment 
The EEA does not take any responsibility for signatories to the Code of Good Employment. The Code is a voluntary one, and thus the EEA has no jurisdiction over a signatory.

In the case of repeated (2+) complaints to the EEA about a signatory and poor practice, the EEA will communicate in confidence with the signatory to alert them to the complaints (without sharing names) and investigate whether practical amends might be required in order to maintain the pledge to the Code.
