Notes:

(1) The Riviera Business Club is a non-commercial organisation and, as such, can not be seen to provide direct financial benefits to its members otherwise its status as an association under the relevant French law renders it liable for tax. Accordingly, all promotions etc., while facilitated by the RBC, must occur between members and not be made by the RBC itself. The RBC acts as messenger, facilitator and intermediairy, but not direct contributor.

(2) The responsibility to distribute (and remove unused) physical promotional items such as flyers or brochures remains with the member(s) concerned. The RBC may provide a suitable location for such items to be collected from, but can not undertake to physically hand-out any items concerned,

(3) Please contact us should you wish to be considered as the presenter at any future RBC event.
