Payment of Registration, Subscription and Commission Fees

Registration and annual subscription fees must be paid in full via card or invoice at the time of registration or date of renewal.  A VAT receipt will be issued to users once payment is received.  Registration and subscription fees apply on a “per Company” basis and not per user.  When you are within 28 days of the subscription expiring you can “Re-Subscribe”. You can do so by selecting “Re-Subscribe” button. As with the subscription you can pay for your “re-subscription” via invoice or card. The expiry date will then be set 1 year on from your current subscription expiry date.

 

There is no automatic renewals functionality as the application does not store card details.  Therefore, if your subscription does lapse you will be automatically un-subscribed.

The pricing range displayed upon completion of your search reflects the most competitive pricing in that geographic area based on your search parameters.  The price range reflects various levels of waste production estimates.  When the construction contractor clicks “Accept Rates” they are committing to engage the chosen waste contractor to provide waste management services for the project.  Our commission of 2.5% plus VAT of the standard practice level is paid by the waste contractor, paid in full via card or invoice at the point of acceptance prior to contact details for both user parties being released. 

We do not guarantee that the standard practice cost estimate will be the level of turnover which the waste management company or waste broker receives; this is dependent on a number of factors, including how good or bad waste production is on site, therefore could be higher or lower than the standard practice level.

No rebates, refunds or credit notes against paid commission will be given by us should waste company revenues fall below the standard practice pricing level upon completion of a project.  Conversely, we will not seek additional commission on waste company revenues which are above the standard practice pricing level at completion.

Refunds on commissions received from a waste company or broker will only be given in the event of a project being cancelled, confirmed in writing by an approved signatory from the contractor whose project it was.  Cancelled projects will be investigated by us, and should collusion or conspiracy to defraud us be confirmed we will instigate civil sanctions against both parties also resulting in both parties being expelled from use of our platforms without reimbursement of subscription fees or previously paid commission fees.

Waste Data Entry and Use

Upon completion of a project, anonymised project data will be uploaded to allow the forecasting dataset for that geographic area to mature.  The only information used will be the first portion of the postcode i.e. AB1 instead of AB1 2CD, the GIFA, project type and the relevant waste data.  Neither the commercial value of the project or the estimated waste revenue will be identifiable within the project dataset.

Additionally, users will have the option to voluntarily upload historic data from previously completed projects in the same way. The same criteria outlined above will apply to this activity.  There are no fees for doing so, but you will need to create an account so that we can monitor for rogue or invalid data being entered and for eliminating spamming.
