Membership Terms & Conditions
The British Association for Psychological Type is a not-for-profit organisation (Charity No 1045 772) also referred to as 'BAPT', 'we' and 'our' in this document. We have 'Members' who subscribe annually to be part of BAPT, in return for access to 'TypeFace' the quarterly magazine, the BAPT Library of books related to Type, and other resources. BAPT is run by 'the Board' of Trustees who are currently all voluntary. Typeface Editor and Assistant Editor are also voluntary.
This page sets out the key policies BAPT use in running membership, events and the website for the benefit of members. These policies may be changed from time to time without specific notice to members.
2. Conference and Other Events
Payment and discounts
Unless otherwise stated, the full conference fees include delegate materials as appropriate (minimising the use of paper where possible). The in-person full-conference fees include materials and refreshments. Others expenses such as travel, accommodation, lunch and dinner must be met by the delegate.
The cost and the inclusions of other events will be determined by the Board on an individual event basis, depending on the specific context of each event.
Online events will include breaks for delegates to get their own refreshments, and supporting materials will be available for download and printing if wished.
We can accept payment by credit/debit card via PayPal, and this will be part of the online registration process.
** The PayPal email confirmation is your receipt which you should print if required.**
We regret that we cannot accept payment by American Express. All fees must be paid for prior to an event.
We reserve the right to close registration for an event early if the attendance limit for a venue has been reached.
Cancellations and changes
Cancellation policies can be found on the registration page of each event, should delegates need to cancel their booking. This covers BAPT’s committed costs in respect of the event, which may change from one year to the next. We reserve the right to consider individual extenuating circumstances in relation to such cancellations.
However, substitute delegates can be accepted at no extra charge if BAPT is notified in writing/email no less than 7 working days before an in-person event or within 2 days of an online event.
All cancellations or requests for transfer are to be made in writing/email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Speakers and detailed timings for an event may alter, and changes posted in the online programme as soon as possible.
In the very remote chance that a conference is cancelled due to circumstances beyond our control, all delegates and sponsors would be informed of any changes at the earliest possible opportunity by email.
BAPT will not be held liable for cancellation in circumstances beyond our control. If we have to cancel, we will refund delegate and sponsorship fees paid, but we will not be responsible for any other losses that delegates or sponsors may have incurred.
Delegate list & photography
To aid networking during and after our events, the names of delegates and their email addresses may be included in a list of delegates made available on the day, and this will be clear on the Registration form. If the event is sponsored the list of delegates will also include those who are in sponsoring companies, but this information will not be released to third parties and all contact details remain strictly private. This list is intended for personal networking only and is not to be used for bulk mailing lists whether by corporates or small businesses.
If you would prefer your name not to appear on the delegate list, please indicate on the Registration form.
At some large BAPT events, a photographer may be present. By agreeing to these terms and conditions, delegates hereby grant BAPT the right to take photographs of them and authorise the use and publication of the same in print (e.g. in TypeFace) and/or electronically (e.g. on the website, e-news or social media). You also agree that BAPT may use such photographs with or without your name for any lawful purpose, for example publicity, illustration, advertising and web content.
At online events, we normally video the event and use all or part of the videos through our media channels. We may sometimes also take screen shots which may have participants visible. By agreeing to these terms and conditions, delegates hereby grant BAPT the right to use such images in the same ways as in-person photographs.
Details about the current membership rates are available on the BAPT website. Preferential rates and/or discounts may be given to specific groups as determined by the Board. This does not imply such discounts will always be available.
Joining and automatic renewal can be made via PayPal or debit/credit card. Membership is due on the anniversary date of registration each year. Renewal of membership is automatic. You will receive a reminder before your renewal date. You may cancel your subscription at any time.
If a member does not renew their membership, they will lose access to the BAPT members’ resources area, TypeFace, and their details will be removed from the Register of Type Practitioners. You are welcome to re-join at any time.
Membership gives discounts for the annual conference and events hosted by BAPT and other Type organisations.

Links to BAPT
A person or organisation may link to BAPT’s home page or any other page, except pages in the password-protected members’ Resources area, so long as the link: (a) is not in any way misleading (b) does not falsely imply sponsorship, endorsement or approval of their site and its products or services (c) makes sense within the context of their site.
Individuals wishing to link to password protected areas in particular circumstances should contact BAPT by sending an email to email@example.com.

BAPT will collect personal details of members for the purposes of sending Typeface magazine and keeping members informed about events, research and other matters of interest in the type community. BAPT will not share membership data with any third party without that member’s permission.
BAPT members are automatically added to the eNews mailing list as well as the BAPT list for Typeface. Should a member leave BAPT, they may still receive eNews without Typeface. Members and non-members can leave the eNews list at any time by clicking ‘Unsubscribe’ at the bottom of an eNews email. Individuals may re-join the eNews list at any time, whether or not they are a member.’
BAPT also collect data during registration for the conference, and some other events. BAPT reserve the right to use this information to construct a delegate list to share with attendees at the conference (including sponsors) but will not share it with third parties outside the conference. There is an opportunity to opt out on the registration form.
Members can update personal details, change passwords and add a photograph in the member account area.
