THE MONETISATION OF TEXTILES
If you are a User and wish to monetise the textiles please be aware that you will be obliged to open a user’s account and provide us with your most important personal data, like: first and last name, address, number of Textiles bags to be collected, date and time of the Textiles collection, contact phone and e-mail address etc. We reserve the right to contact you by e-mail or by phone. The above stated information will be also transferred to the Collector in order to conduct the monetisation process of textiles. This is all we need to know about you to receive your monetisation of textiles request. However after all it is your personal choice only if you want to activate your user’s account permanently or you have opened a temporary one just for a one time monetisation of textiles.
If you are a User and wish to monetise the textiles, by using the service provided by the Website, you must be 18 years old or over and have a permanent address in the territory of United Kingdom.
If you are a User and you want to monetise the textiles, by using the service provided by the Website, you must indicate the suggested date and time of the Textiles collection to be made at the specific address. We will try our best to collect all the textiles in collection term indicated by you, but no later than within 7 working days from your suggested date, but because of our need to co-operate with external companies in the form of specific Collectors, we do not take any responsibility for the quality of service provided by those Collectors or for any delay in service which may occur. Please pay attention to the way you keep the Textiles, which you want to monetise and do not leave the Textiles outside until the time of their collection by the Collector. In the event the Collector’s courier fails to meet you at the address on the suggested date and time of the Textiles collection, you will receive from us an advisory in form of non-delivery notice by e-mail and the next date and time for the Textiles collection will be set with you by phone directly by the Collector’s courier.
Please consider your monetisaton of textiles request carefully, because once you submit your monetisaton of textiles request and the textiles are collected at the address you indicated there will be no option to have the textiles returned. For monetised textiles made using the Website no refunds will be provided, subject to applicable United Kingdom law. If you do not agree to this you should not use the Website.
THE AREA OF THE TEXTILES COLLECTION
If you are a User and the collection address indicated by you is not located on the area serviced by the Collector, then the Website reserves the right to reject your request for a monetisation of textiles. If you want to ensure that your monetisation of textiles request will be carried out, please see the map of the area serviced by the Collector.
When you monetise the Textiles please note that the ownership of those Textiles is not transferred to the Company. Therefore the Company acts only as an intermediary in monetisation of textiles process between the User and the Collector. The Website enables the Collector to pay the User 13 pence for each kilogram of the monetised Textiles.
