d. You will retain ownership of any content that you submit, or otherwise, make publicly available on or through the Site (User Content). You grant us a perpetual, irrevocable, transferable, worldwide, royalty-free and unlimited licence to use such User Content in any manner and for any purpose. Additional terms and conditions in relation to User Content (including discussion forums and user reviews) are set out in Part 2.
a. You agree to pay any fees and/or other charges incurred by you in accordance with any payment provisions set out on the Sites.
b. In general, payment for a Product will be made on the relevant third party website when applying for that Product.
c. Where full payment for a Product is required on the Site (e.g., for travel insurance products), it should be made in the secure area of the Site at the time of application for the Product. Payment methods other than those stated on the Site will not be accepted. If necessary, we may pass your card details and personal details to the relevant third party, who may take payment for the Product in accordance with its terms and conditions. We may charge you any handling fees that we or the relevant third party may incur in respect of your application. We will always inform you of any such charges before they are incurred.
d. You may apply for travel insurance through the Site. You will need to provide details of the type of insurance you require together with details of the persons who will be covered and the start date of the policy. You will then be directed to a payment section of the Site where you can then apply for the travel insurance product you have chosen. When you apply for travel insurance through the Site, we are acting on behalf of the travel insurance providers as their agents. We will receive payment of your premium from you as an agent for the relevant insurer. Any claims money or refund of premium we receive from the insurer in respect of your insurance is also received by us as an agent of the insurer. Any contract entered into for any travel insurance product will be between you and the travel insurance provider. By providing you with a quote we are not making an offer on behalf of the travel insurance provider to contract with you on those terms. Instead, by submitting your details, you are making an offer to purchase the relevant travel insurance product from the travel insurance provider on the terms set out. The contract will be concluded once your offer has been accepted. You will receive a confirmation when your offer has been accepted.
a. We subscribe to the latest in internet security standards so you can shop with confidence online. When you enter a protected area, a small padlock or key will be displayed at the bottom of the screen indicating that you have a secure connection with us. You can rest assured that the information you supply is encrypted and cannot be read by anyone else.
Sections 3 and 4 below are important and you should read them carefully as they exclude or limit our liability to you and detail your responsibilities.
a. You agree that you will be liable to us for any damage, loss, claim, demand, liability or expense (including reasonable legal fees) that we may suffer or incur arising out of or in connection with your conduct on the Site and/or your breach of these Terms and Conditions.
a. Our service allows you to search for and compare various types of Products from different providers. You will need to answer a number of questions on the Site in order to compare or obtain a quote for any Product. These questions are designed to ensure that we and all relevant Providers have all the information necessary to provide you with appropriate and timely information relating to the products in which you are interested. Aspects of a Product such as the level of cover (if applicable) and the amount you will pay will be determined by the answers you provide to these questions. It is therefore very important that you answer all of the questions truthfully, completely, and accurately and that you disclose all relevant facts. Failure to do so could invalidate the Product you purchase. If you are applying for an insurance product, for example, this could mean that you have no insurance cover. If your insurance product is invalid, claims may not be paid and you could be responsible for any third-party costs if any event occurs where you would otherwise have been covered by the insurance product. In order to apply for a Product, you must contact the relevant provider.
b. If you are in any doubt as to whether any information is relevant or required to be disclosed or that something may be incorrect you should disclose it to your proposed provider before you apply for a Product.
c. Before you obtain any Product from a provider, you must check all of the information, content, material, or data the provider holds about you to ensure it is correct, complete, accurate, and not misleading and that you have disclosed all relevant facts. It is your responsibility to identify and correct any mistakes or errors in the information, content, material, or data before you obtain any Product. Failure to do so could invalidate the Product.
d. You must get permission from any other person whose information you intend to provide on the Site before you provide it. In submitting any other person's details, you are confirming to us that you have their permission to do so and that they understand how their details will be used.
e. You must ensure that your User Content complies with the guidelines set out in Part 2 of these Terms and Conditions.
f.

g. If you create any usernames and passwords when using the Sites, they must be kept confidential by you and must not be shared with anyone.

a. The Stocks and Shares ISA channel on the Site provides you with access to information on Stocks and Shares ISAs and a selection of investment funds that you may wish to consider investing in through Stocks and Shares ISA. We have categorised the funds depending on the level of risk we believe those funds involve and the process by which we do this and the different levels of risk are explained on the Site. The funds described on the Site will invest in a wide range of investments, including other funds, and the performance of the funds (including any income you may receive) is not guaranteed. The performance of the funds will depend on many factors, including the performance of underlying investments selected by the fund managers. Some funds may involve exposure to investments in emerging markets, smaller companies and/or exposures to different currencies which may involve greater risk to the value of your investment. You should consider fully all information provided by the fund about the risks that particular products may involve.
b. Please be aware that the value of investments (including the investment funds described in our Stocks and Shares ISA channel) can fall as well as rise, and that you may not get back the full amount invested. Your investment is not guaranteed and the price of investments will depend on fluctuations in the financial markets, which are outside our control. Inflation may reduce the value of your investments over time. Past performance is not a guide to future performance and the favourable tax treatment of ISAs may not be maintained in the future if UK tax law and HM Revenue & Customs changes.
c. Please also be aware that once you have identified investments that are of interest to you, we will introduce you to the investment fund or to an ISA provider with whom you may then decide to complete the purchase. If you decide to proceed with your purchase of a Stocks and Shares ISA and/or investment funds you will do so only with that person and you will not enter into any contract with us. We will not hold or handle client money in respect of any product or service selected by you when using the Stocks and Shares ISA channel.
d. We are not responsible for, and we accept no liability in connection with, any act, omission, error or default by any investment fund or ISA provider or any other third party in the provision of any product or service, or the execution of, or any investment made by you. The provider of the product or service that you wish to purchase should provide you with all required information regarding the product or service as part of the process by which you make a purchase. This will include information on charges and expenses relevant to the product or service and the possible effect of those charges on the value of your investment over time. You should contact them directly should you require any further information about the product or service they offer. If you purchase a product or service from any person having used our Stocks and Shares ISA channel you accept that in doing so we have not and will not provide you with any advice or make any recommendation in connection with any product or service on the Site (including as to its suitability, adequacy or appropriateness for you or for any other person). Information on the Site is provided for general information purposes only and is provided to assist you to consider whether the product or service may be appropriate for your needs.

Due to the information we receive, any such update on the progress of your application to switch energy suppliers will be based on the progress of your electricity switch only.
