Please note, no payment is required at this point. Payment for the Checkatrade monthly membership will be taken by Checkatrade once your application is approved.
Thank you for your interest in the TradeHelp Buying Group, app benefits and discounted Checkatrade membership offer.
In order to provide you with these benefits we will need to process some of your data. We have therefore set out in these terms the manner in which we will do so and how we will protect your data. We do not share your data with third parties other than as required to provide you with the TradeHelp Buying Group, app services and Checkatrade membership offer.
By registering you agree that we may contact you in connection with the Checkatrade offer for new members of a year’s membership at £69.99 (plus VAT) per month, with 3 months’ free. In order to register you for this offer with Checkatrade we will provide Checkatrade with your name, address, telephone number, email, identification document, insurance document, and any preference of contact type which you may state (your ‘Information’). By registering you further agree to Checkatrade using your Information to contact you in connection with the membership offer and for the purposes of assisting you in signing up for Checkatrade membership.
By registering you agree that we may contact you in connection with making the Buying Group prices available to you, and ensuring that you are aware of and have access to the TradeHelp app and Buying Group benefits available. You further agree that, in order to provide you with the Buying Group benefits, we will use your contact information (name, company name, address, telephone and email) to request from your Supplier/s (as introduced by us to you, or as named by you when setting up your account) spend reports detailing the products and/or services purchased by your organisation from your Supplier/s, the volume purchased and the price at which these were purchased (the ‘Spend Reports’).
The first request from TradeHelp to your Supplier for a Spend Report shall relate to any and all purchases by your organisation from your Supplier/s during the 6 months prior to and including the date of your signature to this document, followed by requests for this Spend Report from your Supplier/s in respect of each month of your Buying Group membership going forwards. By registering you are authorising your Supplier/s to provide the above information to TradeHelp for the purposes described below.
If we are unable to obtain a Spend Report from your Supplier/s, we will contact you for assistance in obtaining any further information required to facilitate this, or to ask you to scan across relevant invoices to us.
Whilst in our possession, other than uses for the purposes of the Buying Group as set out below, we will maintain the confidentiality of any information, Spend Reports or invoices provided by you (the ‘Data’) and we will not share the Data with any third parties without your express consent.
We will use the Data for four purposes:
You have the right to request a copy of the information that we hold about you. If you would like a copy of some or all of your personal information, please email us at email@example.com. There may be a small charge for this service. Please let us know if the personal information which we hold about you needs to be corrected or updated.
By registering you also agree to the usage and privacy terms set out on sign up to the free app (as included below). You are not required to use this app but, if you choose to do so, the email log-in and password you set on registering will enable you to access the app without signing up again. The sign up terms are therefore included here to ensure that you are aware of and agree with them.
When you register, log in, configure and use the app we collect information from you in order to help configure your app to best effect for you, to support and contact you in connection with your use of the app and the benefits we offer, and to inform you about products or services which we think may be of interest to you. We are the data controller responsible in respect of the information collected through registration, and through the app about you as a user of the app and, unless we are legally required to do so, we will not share your data with third parties without your express consent.
Save for customer information entered into the app for the purposes of a TradeHelp finance quote, we are only a data processor in respect of the information you enter into the app concerning your customers. Such data is encrypted and transmitted to secure cloud/server storage and is not used by us other than to assist you with any enquiries or data retrieval. Such customer data remains within your control and responsibility, as does the requirement to inform each customer (in accordance with current data protection law) of the manner in which you will use and store their information.
Customer information entered into the app for the purposes of a finance quote may also be processed by us on your behalf in order to assist such customers with any desired finance application and related installation.
You must always ensure that you explain to each customer (in accordance with current data protection law) the manner in which you will use and store their information. It is not permissible to use the customer data in the app for any purposes other than in connection with providing the requested quote and fulfilling any agreed related works, unless written consent to such other purpose has been obtained from the customer.
We will take reasonable technical and organisational precautions to prevent the loss, misuse or alteration of your personal information and of any data we process on your behalf. However, you acknowledge that the transmission of information over the internet is inherently insecure, and we cannot guarantee the security of data sent over the internet. You are responsible for keeping any password and other login details confidential.
You must not use our app in any way that causes, or may cause, damage to the app or impairment of the availability or accessibility of the app; or in any way which is unlawful, illegal, fraudulent or harmful, or in connection with any unlawful, illegal, fraudulent or harmful purpose or activity. You must not use our app to copy, store, host, transmit, send, use, publish or distribute any material which consists of (or is linked to) any spyware, computer virus, Trojan horse, worm, keystroke logger, rootkit or other malicious computer software.
You must not conduct any systematic or automated data collection activities (including, without limitation, scraping, data mining, data extraction and data harvesting) on or in relation to our app without our express written consent.
Access to certain areas of our app may be restricted. We reserve the right to restrict access to other areas of our app, or indeed our whole app, at our discretion.
It is your responsibility to ensure that your log-in and password are kept confidential. You must notify us in writing immediately if you become aware of any unauthorised use of your account or password.
You are responsible for any activity on our app arising out of any failure to keep your user ID or password confidential and may be held liable for any losses arising out of such a failure.
You must not use any other person's user ID and password to access our app, unless you have that person's express permission to do so.
We may disable your user ID and password at any time in our sole discretion with or without notice or explanation.
We do not warrant the completeness or accuracy of the information published on this app; nor do we commit to ensuring that the app remains available or that the material on the app is kept up to date.
Whilst we provide access through the app to document pro formas, example terms and conditions and relevant industry information and calculators, we are not qualified to provide any technical or legal advice and take no liability for the accuracy or completeness of any documents or content within or produced by the app.
It is your responsibility to ensure that any use you make of the app is lawful. It is also your responsibility to ensure that any data entered into the app under your log-in is recorded, protected and used in accordance with the most recent data protection law.
To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, we exclude all representations, warranties and conditions relating to the services we provide, the app and the use of the app (including, without limitation, any warranties implied by law in respect of satisfactory quality, fitness for purpose and/or the use of reasonable care and skill).
To the extent that our services, the app and the information and services on the app are provided free of charge, we will not be liable for any loss or damage of any nature.
We will not be liable to you in respect of any losses arising out of any event or events beyond our reasonable control.
We will not be liable to you in respect of any business losses, including (without limitation) loss of or damage to profits, income, revenue, use, production, anticipated savings, business, contracts, commercial opportunities or goodwill.
