Accessing our site and subscriptions – your attention is particularly drawn to this section

Whilst you may freely access and use our site as a user, subject to your adherence to these Terms of Use and our Acceptable Use Policy, and our right to suspend your access having good cause at any time, if you wish to use our site to advertise or feature listings for your plant, machinery or equipment, then you will have to create an account with us and take out a paid subscription to access these features.



There are three basic tiers of subscription to our site, basic, standard and premium, and rates will be specified on our site whenever you sign up for your first subscription. Finally, there is an additional tier of subscription for corporate members.

The different features available to these four tiers of members will be specified on our site whenever you first select your chosen tier of subscription.

You will have the option of paying your subscription fees on a monthly or yearly basis (in the latter case you will be offered a saving off your total subscription fees for the year as opposed to paying on a monthly basis).

Our billing dates are determined by when the subscription was created, or if you have chosen to avail of any free trial period which we may offer (or withdraw, at our sole discretion) from time to time, the date the trial came to an end.

We ask all our subscribers to pay via direct debit, which is deducted automatically on either a monthly or yearly basis depending on the payment plan you have selected.

For example, if you subscribed to a monthly or yearly plan on the 2nd you will always be billed on the 2nd. If another user subscribed to that same plan starting on the 15th they will always be billed on the 15th.

Please note that if your subscription is unpaid at any time, then we reserve the right to disable your account and access to our site, without prejudice to our other rights, including a right to claim interest at a rate of 8% above the base rate of interest of HSBC Bank PLC from time to time, compounded monthly and accruing from the due date until the date the debt and interest are paid in full.

We also reserve the right to terminate your access, even where a subscribing customer, where you breach any material term of these Terms of Use or our Acceptable Use Policy, as specified in more detail in our Acceptable Use Policy.

We have set out below details of how you can change your subscription, alter your payment frequency, cancel or renew your subscription. If you have any queries about our subscription system you can contact us at [email protected].


Changing from monthly to yearly payments

If you want to change the frequency of payments for your subscription you can do this via the subscription page in the members’ dashboard. Your subscription will remain active until the end of the billing period. Then, when your monthly subscription is due, you'll automatically be upgraded to a yearly subscription. That will be the start date of your new yearly billing subscription.


Upgrading a subscription

You can upgrade your subscription at any time. If you’re paying monthly we'll automatically bill you from the date you upgrade and on a monthly basis until cancellation. If you're on an annual plan you will be billed a single payment of the difference between the old and new subscription. You can do this via the subscription page in the members’ dashboard.


Downgrading a subscription

You can downgrade your subscription at any time, however you must finish out any remaining time on your current subscription before the account actually downgrades. You can do this via the subscription page in the members dashboard.


Cancelling a subscription

Providing a subscription is cancelled before the next payment is due no further payments will be taken. If you're on an annual plan, we'll send you a single email notice (to the email address associated with your account) reminding you that your subscription is about to renew within a reasonable period of time prior to the renewal date. We accept no liability should you fail to receive or read this email notice for any reason. Cancellations can be actioned via the subscription page in the members dashboard. If you do not cancel your subscription it will automatically roll over into the following year or month, depending on the plan you picked at the time you first subscribed to use our site.


Renewing a subscription

Subscriptions do not need to be renewed manually. If you’re on a monthly subscription we will automatically bill you each month until cancellation. If you're on an annual subscription plan, we'll send you a notice email reminding you that your subscription is about to renew within a reasonable period of time prior to the renewal date. If you don’t chose to cancel before the renewal date, your annual subscription will automatically roll over.

Some of the provisions contained in either may also be superseded by provisions or notices published elsewhere on our site.


Acceptable Use Policy

This acceptable use policy sets out the terms between you and us under which you may access our site. This acceptable use policy applies to all users of, and visitors to, our site.

Your use of our site means that you accept, and agree to abide by, all the policies in this acceptable use policy, which supplement our terms of website use, which are available above.

Interactive services

We may from time to time provide interactive services on our site, which allow you to post or edit content, including comment features (generically, the interactive services).

Where we do provide any interactive service, we will provide clear information to you about the kind of service offered, if it is moderated and what form of moderation is used (including whether it is human or technical).

We will do our best to assess any possible risks for users (and in particular, for children) from third parties when they use any interactive service provided on our site, and we will decide in each case whether it is appropriate to use moderation of the relevant service (including what kind of moderation to use) in the light of those risks. However, we are under no obligation to oversee, monitor or moderate any interactive service we provide on our site, and we expressly exclude our liability for any loss or damage arising from the use of any interactive service by a user in contravention of our content standards, whether the service is moderated or not.

The use of any of our interactive services by a minor is subject to the consent of their parent or guardian. We advise parents who permit their children to use an interactive service that it is important that they communicate with their children about their safety online, as moderation is not foolproof. Minors who are using any interactive service should be made aware of the potential risks to them.

Where we do moderate an interactive service, we will normally provide you with a means of contacting the moderator, should a concern or difficulty arise.
