In the event of any complaints received to the Guild from any other party, the Guild reserves right to speak to the complainant for more information regarding that complaint. If a complaint is received the Guild will notify the member within 24 hours and notify the member the whole nature of that complaint, who will then have the opportunity to resolve that complaint directly with the complainant. If the complainant thereafter contacts the Guild again and is still dissatisfied the Guild will have one more conversation with both parties and if their is still no resolution to that complaint the Guild reserves the right to make a decision on the continuation of the members membership. Any such decision will be final and if the decision is to remove the members membership then they will refund any portion of the fees paid by that member from the first day of the month after that decision was made up until the end of the paid for period. In the event that action is taken the 'member' will no longer to be allowed to claim to be a member of the Guild, or use the Guild logo.
