2. Pricing & Payment Terms
2.1. Pricing and Payment
All prices are in Australian dollars and exclude GST, unless otherwise indicated. Prices may be subject to change or correction at any time without notice.
Priced resources may differ between IMAA members and non-members. (IMAA Members and Media Owners can access resources at a negotiated discount, whereas non-members can only purchase at casual rates).
At the time of registering, users must enter their Agency or organisation to receive membership pricing. The IMAA will verify this.
IMAA Members can pay by direct deposit or credit card. Non-members must pay upfront with valid credit or debit cards.
2.2 Ongoing access under subscription
Ongoing access to the priced resource updates will be predicated on organisations maintaining their resource subscription at the time of renewal each year. If an individual or organisation opts not to renew, has its membership lapsed, or ceases its subscription, access to the IMAA Academy will be removed. Should lapsed members wish to re-access the templates after rejoining, they will be required to resubscribe under the subscription model.
The IMAA Academy prices are valid till June 30 2023.
