General Terms and Conditions

Jump to privacy policy

Jump to disclaimer

This website is owned and operated by Stuff2Send Limited (registered number: 06745146 ("Stuff2Send.com "we" or "us"). By accessing or using our web site directly you (the "User") signify that you have read, understand and agree to be bound by these "Terms of and Conditions of Use"(or "Agreement"), whether or not you are a registered member. This agreement includes the privacy policy and the disclaimer. If you have any questions about these terms and conditions or anything on our website, please email us at contact@stuff2send.com.

We reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to change, modify, add, or delete portions of these Terms of Use at any time without further notice. If we do this, we will post the changes to these Terms of and Conditions of Use on this page and will indicate at the top of this page the date these terms were last revised. Your continued use of the facility or the Site after any such changes constitutes your acceptance of the new Terms of and Conditions of Use. If you do not agree to abide by these or any future Terms of and Conditions of Use, do not use or access (or continue to use or access) the facility or the Site. It is your responsibility to regularly check the Site to determine if there have been changes to these Terms of Use and to review such changes. Our item-sending matching network connects you with people around you who want to send or carry items between places. Users of the facility (also referred to as members) can add items and search for items for carry.

Types of Membership

People who join with us through this website become "Members". Members must be over 16 years of age. All members must join the site. There are two types of Members: Senders and Carriers. Senders can upload any item to the site and use all relevant features within the site. They cannot access items to carry. Carriers can upload items to the site, view items to carry, make offers on items and use the full functionality of the site.

Fees

As a Sender, there is no fee to send items, and no restrictions on the number of items an individual can upload onto the system. To be a Carrier there is no annual fee and no restrictions on the number of items you can bid on. However, there is a fee when a Carrier secures delivery of an item once a Sender accepts a bid. This 'transactional fee' is 10% of the delivery price agreed between Carrier and Sender.

Carriers are responsible for handling all VAT associated with payment received from delivery of an item. Carriers cannot bid for items and exclude VAT. All Carrier bids must include VAT. Bids must also be inclusive of any and all additional charges. Carriers, for example, cannot add in the cost of the transaction fee as an additional charge to an agreed upon bid.

We reserve the right to change the calculation of the transaction fee at any time. Details of any such changes will appear on the site.

If a job is cancelled by either the Sender or Carrier after a bid was accepted but before the delivery commenced, the transaction fee will be cancelled. To commence this process, the Carrier or Sender should contact contact@stuff2send.com and our management team will confirm with both parties. Carriers and Senders should not abuse the ability to cancel transactions via Stuff2Send. If it is found that members conspire together to avoid the transaction fee, membership may be cancelled and either party may be subject to additional fees.

Fee increases

We reserve the right to amend, alter or otherwise change in any way, without restriction, the prices and pricing model on the site.

No contract

Accepting an offer made by a Carrier forms a contract between the Carrier and Sender. No contract is created with Stuff2Send.com.

CRB Checks

We reserve the right to contact any Carrier, at any time during their valid membership, to ask them to complete a CRB (Criminal Record Bureau) check. The nature of this check, and cost will be decided and incurred by the Company. Any member refusing such a check will have their account terminated and no refund of membership fees will be given.

Vehicle Insurance.

Carriers (both private individual and commercial) should be aware that certain vehicle insurance policies may have exclusions, some of which may relate to services the Carrier might undertake as a result of agreeing to deliver items for reward.

Professional delivery drivers, like couriers and hauliers, may use the site to locate goods and deliver them to a destination in the UK. Private motorists may use the site in a similar capacity. In any journey by road, it is the member's sole responsibility to ensure he / she is covered by the appropriate and correct level of insurance. In the case of professional Carriers' appropriate hire and reward clauses must exist, pertinent to those operating in the course of a trade or business.

Private individuals choosing to use this site as a Carrier, are to do so in a not-for-profit capacity. Any contribution agreed between the parties, for a delivery, is solely towards the Carrier's running / fuel costs for that agreed journey, and vehicles must not be adapted to carry more than eight passengers (including the driver). We recommend individuals contact their insurance company to confirm details before undertaking a job.

In the event that an individual wishes to become a professional courier, or intends to use www.Stuff2Send.com in the course of their trade or business, they should ensure they have adequate hire and reward insurance to cover their journeys.

Stuff2Send accepts no responsibility for any vehicle insurance-related issues incurred by any member or Carrier.

Privacy Policy

Your privacy on the Internet is of the utmost importance to us. Because we gather certain types of information about the users of the site, we feel you should fully understand the terms and conditions surrounding the capture and use of that information. This privacy statement discloses what information we gather, how we use it, and how to correct or change it.

Information the Company Gathers and Tracks

The company gathers two types of information about users: data that users provide through optional, voluntary registration; and data the company gathers through tracking information derived mainly by tallying page views and journey plan posts throughout the Stuff2Send Network. Such information enables us to better tailor our features and content to users' needs and to help our clients better understand the demographics of our members.

The company currently gathers user information in the following processes:

Optional Registration

The site offers free, voluntary registration to users. By registering, users can enter items / offers, post new items/ offers and reply to existing items / offers; they can take advantage of personalization (the ability to search according to a certain criteria); and they have the ability to edit existing items / offers.

During registration the user is required to supply information including their name, an email address and telephone number. Users may also be asked optional questions.

Surveys

Occasionally, the company conducts user surveys to better understand the needs of our audience in order to improve our features. We sometimes share the aggregated demographic information in these surveys with our partners. We never share any information about specific individuals with any third party without user's express consent.

Usage Tracking

The site tracks user traffic patterns throughout its Network. This information may be used to help personalise the site facility or target advertising. The company also breaks down overall usage statistics according to a user's domain name, browser type, and MIME type by reading this information from the browser string (information contained in every user's browser).

Cookies

A cookie is a small data file that certain Web sites write to your hard drive when you visit them. A cookie file can contain information such as a user ID that the site uses to track the pages you've visited. But the only personal information a cookie can contain is information you supply yourself. A cookie can't read data off your hard disk or read cookie files created by other sites. The site uses cookies to allow automatic logins and to track user traffic patterns (as described above).

When you register, the site uses a cookie to store a unique, random user ID.

You can refuse cookies by turning them off in your browser. However YOU NEED TO HAVE YOUR COOKIES TURNED ON TO USE THE facility.

Use of the Information

The company uses any information given by our users to enhance their experience, whether to provide interactive or personalized elements on the Network or to better prepare future features based on the interests of our users.

The company uses your email information to provide more journey matching features. At a user's request we will send out emails notifying the user of replies to specific items / offers. We also provide the option for the user to allow other users to respond to postings directly via their email. Finally, for users who create groups, we can provide many management tools that the user can opt to receive via email. The company may also send the user email notifications of specific changes to our facility. The company never shares individual email addresses, telephone numbers or postcodes with any third parties, including advertisers or partners, without prior consent from our users.

If during registration a Sender / member opts to be contacted by telephone then their telephone number will be viewable by Carriermembers of the scheme. Carriers acknowledge that their telephone numbers will always be viewable to anyone to whom they have made an offer, via their Carrier profile.

The company creates aggregate reports on user demographics and traffic patterns for clients and partners. This allows our clients to advertise more effectively, and allows our users to receive information that is pertinent to their needs.

Sharing of the Information

The company uses the above-described information to tailor our content to suit your needs and to help our clients better understand our audience's demographics. This is essential to keeping our online facility free. We do not share individually identifiable information about specific users with any third party without prior consent from the user. The company does not control the practices of our members or users. If you have questions about how one of our members or users, your administrator, uses information about you please contact them directly (the company will divulge information only as necessary to comply with UK law.)

Correct/Update Policy

The company offers users the ability to correct or change the information collected during registration process (see above). The instructions for doing this can be found by clicking on the My Details link. Users may change this information at any time and as often as necessary. Users may also delete their account at any time by contacting contact@Stuff2Send.com. Users who are experiencing problems or who have any questions can contact us at contact@Stuff2Send.com

Disclaimer

The site does not intend to be a facility of any sort, merely a method by which individuals may initiate contact with each other.

Users of the site are advised that no checks whatsoever are made against anyone joining the facility either offering items or making or accepting offers for items. Individuals should, therefore, exercise caution and satisfy themselves that the person or persons that they are travelling with are suitable.
