●Must not use our name, logo, etc for any personal monetary gain

●Agrees that all investigation booking must go through the two team leaders before being booked Derbyshire Paranormal Society is entirely voluntary.

As a member you accept that you are aware that you will not receive any monetary compensation or wages by participating in investigations, doing research or travel to and from investigation sites/team meetings/etc. You also accept and agree that any and all donations go towards the maintenance of existing equipment or the purchase of new equipment. New equipment must be discussed and agreed upon by the entire team and only purchased by our team accountant upon agreement. If you take it upon yourself to buy new equipment you agree and accept that you will not be reimbursed partially or in full for that purchase and maintenance or replacement is your responsibility. Should you be willing to share that piece of equipment a contract of ownership will be required to add to our files and permission by yourself given in writing.

You may be required to assist in the transport of team members or equipment at any point.

Investigations can be a mixed bag and locations and situations vary greatly. Our investigations are always on weekends due to our team members having day jobs and usually begin at 10PM and go on through till 5am, so this is not for everyone.

Locations can also range from private houses and businesses to dirty, dusty abandoned buildings which can be dangerous for anyone with existing health issues.

We run all year but have team birthdays and December off for the Christmas period.

Anyone willing to join that fits our criteria must be willing to attend investigations and we run a 3 strike policy. Should you not attend 3 investigations in a row you will be cut from the team. No exceptions. We also require at least 24 hours notice should you be unable to attend. All potential team members will go through a 3 investigation trial period should they fit the initial criteria.

We reserve the right to refuse any potential member should we feel they do not fit within our team, do not fit our ideals and outlok, do not meet our rules/expectations, or act inappropriately/rudely/unprofessionally.

Potential members also agree to our policy of keeping the teams outlook on reported paranormal activity sceptical. We go into investigations to disprove hauntings and assist with any actual issues we find. This can range from high EMFs, bad pipe work, faulty wiring, etc. The reason we do this is so any evidence we capture that cannot be explained is more viable. As such, we do not use, collaborate, or gather advice or information from psychics or mediums. All investigations must be dealt with professionally and from a sceptical point of view.

If you agree with all of this or wish to reply in-depth, please contact our co-founder and team leader at [email protected]
