Application Journey

You acknowledge and accept that you are not making a direct application on a supplier’s website and that you understand that the information you enter into our website(s) will be collected by us and then passed to your selected supplier within 24 hours of your data being collected and stored on our servers. You understand and accept that we will collect, store and transfer the information you provide in compliance of our Privacy Policy. You acknowledge and accept that it is at the sole discretion of the supplier selected as to whether or not they will enter into a binding agreement with you, an application in itself does not constitute a commitment by the supplier to take over your supply. When you click to accept the terms and condition of the supplier and/or sign the supply application schedule electronically or by pen, no binding agreement is formed until the supplier confirms in writing the terms on which they are willing to supply energy to your business premises. You understand that we are not a party to any agreement made between you and your selected supplier and we have no liability nor implied liability in that regard. In the event that you do not wish to accept or comply with the terms and conditions of the supplier selected then you should not click to confirm that you accept the supplier’s terms and conditions as displayed on our website, or as confirmed to you over the phone, and you should not sign the application schedule. By clicking to confirm your acceptance of the supplier terms of supply you accept that you have committed to switch to that supplier. If you change your mind thereafter you will be required to negotiate settlement with the supplier directly and accept that we do not have any involvement in such negotiation



Our Status

We are an energy broker and not an agent. That means our purpose is to broker a contract between you and your chosen supplier and not to be your agent during your dealings with that supplier. As seen in your Application Journey, you submit your application data, in response we present you with the data that are given to us by the various suppliers, you choose your own selected supplier and we then facilitate the method by which you and your selected supplier will then seek to contract with each other.



Accuracy of displayed data

We accept in good faith that all pricing and other information that is provided by the supplier and uploaded to our website(s) is accurate. As this is a good faith arrangement we do not warrant or confirm that any pricing and/or other information in respect to products displayed is accurate, up to date, fit for purpose or relevant and accordingly we do not warrant the accuracy of any information displayed on our website(s). If you have any reason to believe the information displayed is incorrect then please send an email to our customer services team at info@businessenergyquotes.com and we will investigate any reported inaccuracy. For the avoidance of doubt, should a price be displayed and subsequently found to be incorrect then you will not be able to receive the product displayed unless the supplier agrees to do so in writing. While we endeavour to display prices as accurately as possible, we do not warrant the accuracy of prices or information displayed on our website(s) and therefore we do not accept any liability whatsoever in respect to you selecting an inaccurately displayed product.
