If you are browsing the Platform and have not yet registered, your use of the Platform will still be subject to these Terms.
- You will need to register on the Platform in order to use the Services. You will need to provide a valid email address and a password. You may also be required to submit additional information (e.g. details about your energy use) as part of the registration process.
- Your account is for your use only and you agree that you will not share your account with any other person. It is your responsibility to keep your password secure. You will be responsible and liable for any actions of any person logging into the Platform using your username and password. You must notify us immediately if you suspect that anyone else knows your password or that anyone has accessed your account without your permission. Unless we have been notified otherwise, we will be entitled to assume that any person logging into the Platform using your username and password is you.
- We may at any time and for any reason refuse to accept a registration from any person.
- When using the Services, you agree to provide accurate information. Where you use the Services to obtain a quotation for the supply of energy, this will allow accurate quotations to be obtained, including estimated or actual usage of energy, contract end dates and other known factors that may influence prices and quotations.
- Where you use the Services to obtain a quotation for the supply of energy: (i) the provision of a quotation by a supplier via the Platform does not constitute an offer to you. Any such quotation will have its own terms and conditions attached, including in relation to the duration of the quotation. It is your responsibility to (i) validate the accuracy of any quotation received from a supplier via the Platform prior to entering into a contract with the supplier; and (ii) to ensure that you have taken all necessary action (including, without limitation, notifying any existing supplier and/or terminating an existing contract with a supplier) to enable a contract to be put in place with a supplier. If you accept a quotation from a supplier (such acceptance will constitute an offer from you) and a contract is executed between you and the supplier, the contract is binding on you and you will not be permitted to revoke your acceptance; and (ii) all offers made by you will be subject to a supplier’s acceptance. Acceptance by a supplier does not guarantee that the contract between you and the supplier will go live. The supplier shall be entitled to refuse to accept your offer of acceptance of their quotation at their sole discretion. In the event that the supplier refuses to accept your offer of acceptance of their quotation, neither the supplier nor we have any obligation to advise you of the reason for such refusal.
- You acknowledge that by entering into a contract with a supplier via the Platform, you will be contracting directly with that supplier and not with us. You agree that we are not liable in any way in relation to any transactions, dealings or arrangements of any kind made between you and any supplier and that any such transaction, dealing or arrangement (including, without limitation, any payment obligations of yours) is your responsibility and at your sole risk.
- We may receive fees from suppliers if you purchase a product/services from a supplier via the Platform.

Full details of the cost of annual subscription will be provided to you during the registration process. Subscription fees are payable using most credit and debit cards and all such payments will be subject to validation checks and authorisation by the card issuer.
- Each subscription is for a single user for a 12 month period (or such other period as you agree to during the registration process) and is personal to that user. Subscriptions automatically renew for additional 12 month periods (or additional periods equivalent to the initial subscription period). We will contact you to remind you that your subscription is due to renew; this reminder will usually be sent to you approximately 5 weeks before your renewal date so that you have time to consider whether you want to end your membership before it renews.
- Either party can give the other notice of non-renewal at least 30 days before the end of a subscription term to stop the subscription from automatically renewing.
- If you are a consumer: (i) you have an initial 14-day cancellation period in which to cancel your subscription. This cancellation period will end 14 days after the day on which you took out your subscription. If you cancel within the cancellation period you will be entitled to a full refund of your subscription payment. (ii) After the cancellation period has expired, you can tell us at any time that you do not want your subscription to continue beyond the year you have paid for. We will not provide a full or partial refund of your annual payment but you will continue to receive all the benefits you have paid for up to when your subscription ends and no further payments will be taken. (iii) Each time your subscription renews, you have a 14 day cancellation period in which to cancel your subscription.
- If we decide to change the price of your subscription, we will provide you with at least 6 weeks’ notice.
