Terms and Conditions
Energy Post Weekly is the premium service from Energy Post and we hope you come to value it alongside our free access site.
Due to the fact that we are charging for the content on this website, we would like to be as clear as possible about the rules, rights and restrictions which come with taking out a subscription. That’s what this page is all about and we hope you find it useful. If you have any problems with any part of the service, please do get in touch with me using the email address below and I will do my best to help you as efficiently as possible.
1. Rates: The standard cost of Energy Post Weekly (EPW) is €315 (new prices for 2019) per person for 12 months and €160 per person for 6 months. You can also “pay-as-you-go” for €49 per month which has the option to cancel at any time. We run offers from time to time which can reduce this fee. We also offer group discounts for organisations requiring access for multiple users. We can invoice businesses.
2. Access: EPW articles are locked and only accessible with a valid subscription. Your subscription allows you access to all new and archived articles published on the website/s. There are some non-protected pages accessible across the site/s.
3. Cancellation and Refunds: We do not offer refunds once the trial period has elapsed. You can cancel a subscription once the trial has elapsed to stop it being renewed. To cancel your subscription order during the free trial you need to be logged in and follow the instructions on your account page, accessible from the main menu. We will then action your request.
4. Trial Period: Your trial period is defined as 3 days from the date you have access to any locked content on the site including archived issues. There is no trial period available to pay-as-you-go customers.
5. Payment methods: We accept all forms of payment accepted via these major payment gateways: PayPal, Stripe (for credit cards) and iDeal (Dutch bank transfer, may not be available to everyone). There is also the option to be invoiced available to business customers. Payment via bank transfers must be received before the end of the Trial Period to avoid any interruption to your service. We cannot accept payment by bank transfer for pay-monthly subscription plans.
6. Expiry and Renewal: You will receive a reminder approximately 2 weeks prior to the end of your subscription with instructions on how to proceed. We will not automatically renew your subscription without notifying you. Note: To avoid missing EPW notifications, please ensure your email address on your user account is kept up-to-date throughout your subscription and that your email settings allow email to be received from Energy Post. If you are unsure, please send an email to email@example.com with subject ’email test’ and we will reply to the email you have provided.
7. Publishing schedule: Energy Post publishes approximately 350-400 original PREMIUM articles per year and we send a weekly notification and newsletter (Energy Post Weekly) to ensure you are aware of the articles you are interested in. For this reason it is important that you do not inadvertently unsubscribe from our mailing list/s. If you do, you may not be kept up-to-date on what you have paid for! We will send at least 44 newsletters per year alerting you to what we’ve published exclusively for our premium subscribers.
8. Copyright: Your subscription is personal to you. It entitles you alone to access the locked pages on the website and their content. Sharing of content contained on locked pages is prohibited and may result in your account being suspended and/or charges for breach of this clause. Printing of locked EPW content for personal use only is allowed but copies may not be shared with third parties even if, for example, they work for the same organisation as the subscriber. If you think your colleagues may be interested in a particular article there are big discounts when you add more subscribers to your package which will save you money on your own subscription too.
9. Privacy: After stopping a free trial or if you decide not to renew your subscription you can elect not to receive notifications when new content is ready online.
To do this, first you must log in, then go to the menu bar (see picture) and role over the Account button. Select “your profile” and on that page, under the heading Email Preferences, uncheck the post/page notification preference box.
