Account Payment and Termination

Each membership is month to month.  The cost for the first networking event is $35.00 which includes the membership.  No refunds.  Each member is signed up in auto-pay (required for membership) and will be billed the same day of the month for each successive payment cycle.  Where there is a 31st in months where there are only 30 days, the payment will default to the last day of the month for that month.  In order to cancel membership, we require a 15 day notice to cancel auto-pay.  Notification less than 15 days does not allow us time enough to cancel the auto-pay.  The member will be billed for that month and all successive payments will be canceled.

Only active members can access the benefits and member area of the website.  All of our benefit partners require you validate your membership monthly which can only be done through The Security Bulldog (THE SECURITY BULLDOG) website member portal.  If you sign up directly with the vendor, you will be responsible for all the charges incurred from the provider.  THE SECURITY BULLDOG will not pay these charges and will refer them back to the provider for action.

Your account may be immediately terminated without explanation by THE SECURITY BULLDOG at any time. Should you decide to terminate your account with THE SECURITY BULLDOG provide a written notice and allow 15 days before your next billing date for removal from the auto-pay system. Fees paid to THE SECURITY BULLDOG are non-refundable.
