SERVICE TERMS AND CONDITIONS
PLEASE READ THESE TERMS CAREFULLY BEFORE REGISTERING FOR THE SERVICES
We are Gas App UK Limited (referred to as "we", "us" and "our" in these Terms). We are registered in England and Wales under company number 10164162 and have our principle office at Shakespeare Buildings, 26 Cradley Road, Cradley Heath, West Midlands, United Kingdom, B64 6AG.
To contact us, including in relation to complaints, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We have developed a website (www.gasapp.co.uk) and mobile application (App) through which you are able to access our Services. Throughout these Terms, Services will mean the services provided by us to you, a registered gas engineer, via our website or App.
This page (together with the documents referred to below) sets out the terms (Terms) which apply when you use our Services and which make up the contract between us.
The Services available to you via our website and the App will depend on whether you opt to create an account free of charge (a Standard Account) or a paid for account (a Premium Account). The differences in the Services available in the Standard Account and the Premium Account are set out on our website.
The following additional terms will also apply to your use of our website and App:
By registering for an account on our website, you confirm that you accept these Terms and that you agree to comply with them. If you do not agree to these Terms, you must not register for the Services on our website or download the App.
We recommend that you print a copy of these Terms for future reference.
We may amend these Terms from time to time. Every time you wish to use our website or App, please check these Terms to ensure you understand the terms that apply at that time. Your continued use of the website or App following any changes to these Terms will constitute your acceptance of the changes and your continued agreement to be bound by the Terms as amended.
From time to time we may also make changes the Services to implement technical adjustments and improvements, for example to address a security threat. We cannot guarantee that the Services will not change but we will use reasonable endeavours to not reduce functionality where possible.
We may write to you to let you know that we are going to stop providing the service. We will let you know at least 14 days in advance of our stopping the supply of the service.
In order to access the website and App, you need to register for an account with us on our website or app and create a profile.
When you register for an account, we will ask you to verify your identification and credentials by providing details of your Gas Safe registration, including details of your Gas Safe Card. We reserve the right to reject your application if we have reasonable grounds to suspect that you are not a registered gas engineer or if we have previously denied you access to an account for any reason.
The App is not designed with personal use in mind, nor should it be regarded as an alternative to seeking professional advice from a gas engineer. In the absence of any negligence or other breach by us, your use of the information on this App is entirely at your own risk.
In return for us granting access to our website and App, you agree to:
Access to the Services via our website and App may be temporarily or permanently suspended or withdrawn if we have reasonable grounds to suspect that any information provided by you is untrue, inaccurate, out of date or incomplete or if you register for multiple accounts.
The Services are directed at users based in the United Kingdom. We do not represent that the Services will be available or appropriate for use in any other territory.
You undertake to use all reasonable endeavours to prevent any unauthorised access to, or use of, the Services and/or the App and, in the event of any such unauthorised access or use, promptly notify us.
If your account is a Standard Account, the account shall be personal to you and may not be shared with anyone else. You shall keep a secure password for your use of the Services and the App, that such password shall be changed no less frequently than quarterly.

Subject to the paragraph below, you may, from time to time while you have a Premium Account, purchase additional User Subscriptions. We shall grant access to the Services and/or the App to such additional Authorised Users in accordance with the provisions of these Terms.
If you wish to purchase additional User Subscriptions, you must notify us in writing. We will evaluate such request for additional User Subscriptions and respond to you with approval or rejection of the request (such approval not to be unreasonably withheld) and details with the associated costs per additional User Subscription. When you have reviewed the associated cost, if you wish to proceed you must notify us in writing. Where you approve the costs, we shall activate the additional User Subscriptions within 7 days of your approval (you will then be able to add Authorised Users to your account via the App).

If our performance of any of our obligations under these Terms is prevented or delayed by any act or omission by you or failure by you to perform any relevant obligation (Default) then:
To pay any fee, you must designate and provide information about your preferred payment method (e.g., credit card, online payment service, a third party, like iTunes or Google Play) (the “Payment Method”). If you provide your payment information, you authorise us and certain third party service providers, payment card networks and payment processors to receive, store and encrypt your payment information. If you paid through the Google Play or iTunes store, you may change your Payment Method through the corresponding store account. No refunds or credits will be provided by us, other than as set forth in these Terms.
In order to access certain functionality of the Services (namely those services associated with a Premium Account), you will be required to pay subscription fees. Subscription fees, along with any required taxes, may be paid on a monthly basis. All subscription fees are payable in advance. You agree to pay the subscription fees, and other charges you incur in connection with your Gas App account, on a subscription basis. We reserve the right to increase subscription fees, any associated taxes, or to institute new fees at any time upon reasonable advance notice.
Subscription fees will be billed automatically at the start of the monthly period. These fees will auto-renew until your subscription is downgraded or terminated. Your subscription fee will be the same as your initial charges unless you are otherwise notified in advance. You may cancel your subscription at any time, as described below.

You may cancel your subscription at any time by going to your account settings.
In order to provide Services that are relevant and appropriate for you, we use location tracking. When you register for an account with us, we will ask you whether you would prefer for us to use location data sent from your devices (Geolocation) or a region chosen manually by you from a drop-down list. We will only use this data to provide you with appropriate Services and not to determine your location for any other reason.
You can turn off the Geolocation functionality at any time by turning off the location services settings for the App on your device but if you do so and you do not provide us will a manually inputted location, you will impede the way in which the Services can be provided to you. If you use the Services, you consent to us and our affiliates' and licensees' transmission, collection, retention, maintenance, processing and use of your location data either by Geolocation or using your manually inputted location.
