We may revise these Terms at any time by amending this page. We will email you with notification of any significant changes. Please check this page from time to time to take notice of any changes we made, as they are binding on you.

CHANGES TO OUR SITE

We may update our Sites from time to time, and may change the content of them at any time. However, please note that any of the content on our Sites may be out of date at any given time, and we are under no obligation to update it. We do not guarantee that our Sites, or any content on them, will be free from errors or omissions.

ACCESSING OUR SITE

We do not guarantee that our Sites, or any content on them, will always be available or be uninterrupted. Access to our Sites is permitted on a temporary basis. We may suspend, withdraw, discontinue or change all or any part of a Site without notice. We will not be liable to you if for any reason a Site is unavailable at any time or for any period.

You are responsible for making all arrangements necessary for you to have access to our Sites. You are also responsible for ensuring that all persons who access a Site through your internet connection are aware of these Terms and that they comply with them.

ABOUT OUR SITES

Our Sites are directed at users residing in the United Kingdom. We do not represent that the content available on or through our Sites is appropriate or available in other locations. We may limit the availability of our Sites or any service or product described on our Sites to any person or geographic area at any time. If you choose to access a Site from outside the United Kingdom, you do so at your own risk.

HabiHome is a platform through which users can gather, organise and manage their household bills and data. Users will be able to sync various utility accounts and online bills onto their profile which include (but is not limited to) broadband, mobile, landline, TV, insurance, gas, water and electric.

Users give HabiHome access to their individual utility accounts which the platform adds to the user dashboard. This enables users to view and manage relationships with third party service providers of household utilities through one platform.

We will only access users’ utility accounts for the purposes set out in these Terms, and will only undertake actions in relation to users’ utility accounts as and when directed by users.

Users should review the terms and conditions of their utility providers and ensure that they always abide by those terms and conditions. Pursuant to clause 9 below, we take no responsibility for users’ actions that may or may not be in accordance with the terms and conditions of their utility providers.

HabiHome acts on behalf of comparison sites which include SEOPA, Stickee Technology and Energylinx in order to provide you with our Services.  When connected with or using the services of third party businesses, users must refer to their respective terms and conditions.

HabiSearch is a platform through which potential home-buyers can declare their interest in any home in the UK and potential home-sellers can understand how likely they are to sell their home and at what price. Users provide HabiSearch with their contact information and details of their home where applicable. When a potential home-buyer expresses serious interest in a home (through what we call a “hard follow”), HabiSearch provides the home-buyer with an opportunity to be connected to an estate agent to help them buy the property. We also provide potential home-sellers with the opportunity to be connected to an estate agent to  help them sell their property. We will never share your personal information or account details with an estate agent without your permission.

Pursuant to clause ‘Limitation of our liability’ below, we cannot be held liable for any quotes that users receive from a third party business. We also cannot be held liable for any act, omission or any damaging action caused by a third party business.

YOUR ACCOUNT AND PASSWORD

You are required to register for an account in order to use the Service. You must be 18 or older to visit our Sites or use our Services. If you choose, or you are provided with, a username (or user identification code), password or any other piece of information as part of our security procedures, you must treat such information as confidential. You must not disclose it to any third party. We have the right to disable any user identification code or password, whether chosen by you or allocated by us, at any time, if in our reasonable opinion you have failed to comply with any of the provisions of these Terms. If you know or suspect that anyone other than you knows your username or password, you must promptly notify us at contact@habiplace.com

"COLLABORATORS"

The main account holder of a HabiHome account may choose to invite a Collaborator to join their account. This person will have all the same access, viewing and editing rights as the main account holder, including access to utility and comparison services.

 

Any changes or additions made to the account information by the Collaborator will be visible to anyone who can see the property profile. It is important for the main account holder to ensure that the chosen Collaborator is a person they trust, as pursuant to clause 12 below, we will not be responsible for any content uploaded by users.

 

Any changes or additions made to the account by the Collaborator will be retained on the account and visible to anyone who can see the property profile, even after the Collaborator has had his/her access rights as Collaborator deactivated. Pursuant to clause 13 below, the Collaborator grants us the same rights as the main account holder in relation to user-uploaded content, and we will retain those rights set out in clause 13 (B) even after the Collaborator has had his/her access rights as Collaborator deactivated.

  2. Permission to Use Your Content. By posting Your Content through our Services, you grant us a licence to use it.
