Any prices or charges shown on the website or any other promotional material displayed by Contract Village does not constitute a contractual offer capable of acceptance by the Customer. Prices shown in may be subject to change at any time without notification.

 

8.    USE OF THE PLATFORM

Customers can list details of a contract that they have available for transfer once the registration process has been completed, or if they already have a valid account and have made appropriate payment to us. Contracts listed may be new or active with a remaining time period and payments due to the Contract Service Provider. Contracts shall be subject to the transferring terms of the Contract Service Provider and the agreement of such Contract Service Provider. We shall have no responsibility to you for any direct or indirect consequences arising out of such a transfer or non-acceptance of a transfer request.

New short-term or specialised low cost contracts may also be listed on the website.

The contract between us and you for a listing plan, or placement of a free listing, will be in force once we accept your registration and payment has been cleared and accepted by us. We retain the right to accept or refuse listings at our sole discretion.

By placing a listing with Us you warrant that you have the right to transfer the contract that you advertise. You shall be solely responsible for ensuring that any contract you advertise is transferrable.

We aim to upload and publish listings as soon as possible. You will receive an email confirmation of the listing.

Customers may be matched to listings through their own search criteria and can either accept the terms and incentives that accompany the listing or may negotiate further by messaging the customer who listed the contract.

We will comply with the UK Advertising Code, and any adverts or listings that do not comply may be removed, edited or blocked as deemed necessary and at our sole discretion. Listings may be removed if we are instructed to do so by law or by an authoritative body.

 

9.    PAYMENT

Registration on the website is free of charge. Customers have a choice of listing plans with the option of one free listing per user within a 30 day period. Listing plans (other than the free option) must be paid in advance and will not be available until payment has been accepted through our payment provider, Worldpay. Payment is via a secure server (SSL) connection that protects a user’s payment details. We do not have access to the payment details for a transaction carried out via the website.

Customers are only granted one free listing per 30 days. The fees that apply to the listing plans are shown on the website.

Listing options are inclusive of VAT, charged at the prevailing rate. Our VAT registration number is 140 0908 51.
