Terms and Conditions
Energy Post Premium (formerly 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 using the email address below for assistance.
1. Rates: The standard cost of Energy Post Premium is €315 (new prices for 2019) per person for 12 months and €160 per person for 6 months. If you prefer to pay monthly, the cost is €29/month on a 12-month contract. You can also “pay-as-you-go” for €49 per month which has the option to cancel at any time (i.e. without a contract). 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: Premium articles are locked and only accessible during trial-period or with a valid subscription. Your subscription allows you access to all new and archived articles published on the website. There are some non-protected pages accessible across the site.
3. Cancellation and Refunds: We are not able to offer refunds. Please note: a) if you take up a free trial offer you must cancel before trial elapses to avoid the commencement of your chosen subscription for which you will charged and b) the 12-month pay-monthly subscription (currently €29/month) is a contract for the full 12 months. It cannot be stopped part-way through the 12-months. If you want the ability to cancel at anytime, please select the €49/month “pay-as-you-go” plan.
4. Free trials: 3-day free trials now available on all subscription plans.
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 taking a corporate licence. Payment via bank transfers must be received within 14 days of commencement of the service to avoid any interruption to your service.
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 original PREMIUM articles on a weekly basis and sends a newsletter with links to subscribers approximately 44 times per year. 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!
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 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: 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.
