KEYNEST SERVICES TERMS AND CONDITIONS

 

BACKGROUND:

 

1.    We are KeyNest Services Limited a company registered in England under company number 10024536 whose registered address is 5th Floor, First Central 200, 2 lakeside drive, London NW10 7FQ (“we”/ “us”/ “our”).

 

2.    We own and operate the website keynest.com (including its sub-domain secure.keynest.com) (“KeyNest”).

 

3.    This agreement applies as between a user of KeyNest (“you”/ “your”) and us.

 

4.    Your agreement to comply with and be bound by these terms and conditions (“Terms”) is deemed to occur upon your first use of KeyNest, upon signing up for an online KeyNest account (“Account”), upon registering your keys with KeyNest (“Registration”) and upon you requesting a KeyNest code for your keys (“Collection Code”).  By continuing to use KeyNest you represent and warrant that you are over the age of 16.

 

5.    If you do not agree to be bound by these Terms, you should stop using KeyNest immediately.

 

6.    No part of KeyNest is intended to constitute a contractual offer capable of acceptance. An order made by you through your Account constitutes a contractual offer to us and our acceptance of that offer is deemed to occur upon us either sending a dispatch email to you indicating that your order has been fulfilled or upon dispatch of your Registration code (“Registration Code”) or upon dispatch of a Collection Code.

 

7.    These Terms apply to the exclusion of any other terms that you seek to impose or incorporate, or which are implied by trade, custom, practice or course of dealing.

 

WHAT WE DO

 

8.    We are an online platform where you can generate an access code for your keys, a Collection Code, so that you can store them at one of our KeyNest supported third party locations (“Location(s)”) and so that these can be collected by someone who provides the Location with your Collection Code (be that you or a third party selected by you and provided with your Collection Code).

 

ACCOUNT

 

9.    To use KeyNest you are required to create an Account which will contain certain details.  By continuing to use KeyNest and upon creating an Account you represent and warrant that:

 

a.     You are over 16 years old;

b.     all information you submit is accurate and truthful;

c.      you have permission to submit such information where permission may be required; and

d.     you will keep this information accurate and up-to-date.

 

10. Sharing of Accounts is not permitted unless we expressly authorise it in writing.

 

11. You are required to keep your Account details confidential and must not reveal your username and password to anyone. If you use a shared computer, it is recommended that you do not save your Account details in your internet browser.

 

12. If you have reason to believe that your Account details have been obtained by another without consent, you should contact us immediately to suspend your Account.  Please be aware that due to the instantaneous nature of the Collection Code delivery, pending or completed purchases cannot be cancelled.

 

13. When choosing your username you are required to adhere to these Terms.  Any failure to do so could result in the suspension and/or deletion of your Account.

 

14. Please note that for security reasons and due to the nature of our services we do not take the full address of any of your properties when registering your Account.

 

REGISTRATION

 

15. To be able to store your keys at a Location you will first need to register the specific keys with us through your Account.

 

16. You will be able to assign a name to your keys.  For cybersecurity reasons you should not use any details which may uniquely identify your keys and their use (e.g. your exact address etc.)

 

17. Once you receive your Registration Code you will be able to take your keys to the selected Location. On your initial drop off for the keys at the Location our KeyNest fob will be attached to your keys.  

 

18. The keyfob will at all times be owned by us. We reserve our right to request you to return our keyfob at our request, upon demand and within 24 hours of being put on notice of such request. Upon Registration you warrant to us that you will keep the keyfob in a good condition.  

 

19. For security reasons you should not have any identifying objects or marks on your keys (e.g. keyrings etc). This includes any name allocated to the keys or unique identifiers being on the keys including but not limited to keytags, attachments, markings and colours.

 

 

COLLECTION CODES

 

20. To store your keys at a Location, following Registration, you agree that you will purchase a Collection Code from us through KeyNest to collect your keys.

 

21. The keys must be stored at the same location that you have selected on KeyNest.  We are not responsible if you or someone who has your keys takes your keys to the wrong location.  You are responsible for ensuring that the correct location is identified and selected prior to placing an order for a Collection Code.

 

RELEASE OF KEYS

 

22. The Location will release the key(s) to anyone who provides them with your Collection Code (be that you or a third party selected by you and provided with your Collection Code). Such process may be amended from time to time.

 

KEYNEST

 

23. Any images, descriptive matter or advertising supplied by us and any descriptions or illustrations contained on KeyNest are for the sole purpose of giving an approximate idea of our services described in them. They shall not form part of an agreement or have any contractual force.

 

24. Whilst every effort has been made to ensure that all descriptions of services offered by KeyNest correspond to our actual services, we are not responsible for any variations from these descriptions. This does not exclude our liability for mistakes due to negligence on our part and refers only to variations of the correct services, not different services altogether.

 

25. We do not represent or warrant that all services will be available.

 

26. At all times the only service we provide to you is the automatic generation of a unique access code, the Collection Code, through which KeyNest can be used to enable access to your keys from a third party location.

 

27. We are not responsible for the storage of your keys at the Locations which are at all times administered and run by third parties.

 

28. At all times you remain responsible for anyone to whom you provide the Collection Code or allow access to your keys. You must take appropriate precautions and follow normal safety guidelines. Disclosure of your Collection Code to anyone is done so at your own risk and you are, at all times, responsible for the safety of your keys, property and self.

 

29. You accept and agree that we have no liability in respect of any loss, damage or injury suffered as a result of the disclosure of your Collection Code and access to your keys.

 

30. When using our services you assume all risk including, and without limitation, any use or misuse of your keys by a third party.

 

31. Whilst you accept that the security of any property to which a key relates is outside of our control we will protect any information we hold about your keys in accordance with our Privacy Policy.

 

32. You agree to indemnify, defend and hold us, our officers, directors, employees, agents and third parties harmless for any claims, causes of action, debts, losses, costs, liabilities and expenses (including reasonable legal fees) relating to or arising, directly or indirectly, out of claims and all losses following any use or misuse of your Collection Code.            

 

LOCATIONS

 

33. Storage of your keys at a Location is subject to availability. If a selected location has reached its capacity for the storage of keys, they are not obliged to take receipt of your key(s).

 

34. The Location reserves its right to refuse to accept any key at any time.

 

35. We are not at any time responsible for any Location including without limitation it being open at a specific time or on a specific day. We endeavour to keep KeyNest up to date with standard opening times of the Locations but the opening times of the Locations are outside of our control.

 

36. We shall have the right to make any changes to our services which are necessary to comply with any applicable law or safety requirement, or which do not materially affect the nature or quality of the services. In such circumstances we shall not notify you.

 

PRICE AND PAYMENT

 

37. Any price advertised or quotation given by us shall not constitute an offer. All pricing information on KeyNest is correct at the time of going online.  We reserve the right to change prices and alter or remove any special offers from time to time and as necessary.  All pricing information is reviewed and updated periodically.

                                

38. Payment for a Collection Code must be completed before we provide you with a Collection Code.

 

39. In the event that prices are changed during the period between an order being placed for a Collection Code and us processing that order and taking payment, you will be contacted prior to your order being processed with details of the new price.

 

40. All prices on KeyNest are inclusive of VAT.

 

41. Payments to KeyNest are administered through a third party payment site which is integrated into KeyNest. We have no control over or liability for the third party payment site.  To pay for a Collection Code you will be automatically directed to a third party payment website (“Payment Website”). By proceeding to make payment through the Payment Website you agree to abide by the terms and conditions of the Payment Website.

 

REFUNDS

 

42. We will only make a refund of a Collection Code fee in our absolute discretion.

43. You are at all times responsible for ensuring that you select the correct Location.

44. Collection Codes are only available for instant download and are valid immediately. When purchasing a Collection Code you confirm that you understand that the contract cannot be cancelled.

45. All purchases of Collection Codes are final and all fees non-refundable.

46. We do, however, reserve the right, at our utter discretion, to make full or partial refunds on Collection Codes.

 

THE CONTRACT

 

47. Your order is an offer to us to buy the requested Collection Code.  We only accept your order once we receive confirmation from the third party payment platform that your payment has been successful.

 

48. In light of the nature of the Collection Code this will be delivered to you within the statutory cancellation period.  Before purchase of a Collection Code you have confirmed that:

a.  You have expressly consented to the Collection Code being delivered within the statutory cancellation period; and

b.  That you acknowledge and understand that your right to cancel the contract for the Collection Code has been lost.

 

49. Once your order for a Collection Code has been accepted by us, unless you have opted out we will send you a confirmation email with details of your order, a copy of these Terms and confirmation that you have lost your right to cancel the contract within the statutory ‘cooling off’ period (“the Contract”).

 

50. Once we have sent you the Contract there will be a binding contract between you and us.

 

51. If we, for any reason, do not accept your order, in normal circumstances no payment shall be taken.  In any event, any sums paid by you in relation to an order that is not accepted by us will be refunded within 14 calendar days.

 

52. By registering for an Account and purchasing a Collection Code from us you agree that we can send you the Contract by email.

DISCLOSURE OF YOUR INFORMATION

 

15. We may share your information with selected third parties including:

a.    Business partners, suppliers and sub-contractors for the performance of any contract we enter into with them or you;

b.    Advertisers and advertising networks that require the data to select and serve relevant adverts to you and others.  We do not disclose information about identifiable individuals to our advertisers, but we may provide them with aggregate information about our users (for example, we may inform them that 100 new businesses have clicked on their advertisement on any given day). We may also use such aggregate information to help advertisers reach the kind of audience they want to target (for example, locations in SW1). We may make use of the personal data we have collected from you to enable us to comply with our advertisers' wishes by displaying their advertisement to that target audience;

c.    Analytics and search engine providers that assist us in the improvement and optimisation of our site;

d.    We may disclose your personal information to third parties;

e.    In the event that we sell or buy any business or assets, in which case we may disclose your personal data to the prospective seller or buyer of such business or assets;

f.     If our company or substantially all of our assets are acquired by a third party, in which case personal data held by it about its customers will be one of the transferred assets; and

g.    If we are under a duty to disclose or share your personal data in order to comply with any legal obligation, or in order to enforce or apply our terms of use; or to protect our rights, property, or safety or that of our customers, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organisations for the purposes of fraud protection and credit risk reduction.

 

WHERE WE STORE YOUR PERSONAL DATA

 

16. The data that we collect from you may be transferred to, and stored at, a destination outside the European Economic Area ("EEA"). It may also be processed by staff operating outside the EEA who work for us or for one of our suppliers. Such staff may be engaged in, among other things, the fulfilment of your order, the processing of your payment details and the provision of support services. By submitting your personal data, you agree to this transfer, storing or processing. We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this privacy policy.

 

17. All information you provide to us is stored on our secure servers. Any payment transactions will be operated through a third party. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of our site, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share a password with anyone.

 

18. Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our site; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.

 

YOUR RIGHTS

 

19. You have the right to ask us not to process your personal data for marketing purposes. You can exercise your right to prevent such processing by checking certain boxes on the forms we use to collect your data.  You can also exercise the right at any time by contacting us at support@keynest.co.uk.

 

20. KeyNest may, from time to time, contain links to and from the websites of our partner networks, advertisers and affiliates.  If you follow a link to any of these websites, including without limitation the third party payment platform, please note that these websites have their own privacy policies and that we do not accept any responsibility or liability for these policies.  Please check these policies before you submit any personal data to these websites.

 

ACCESS TO INFORMATION

 

21. You have the right to access information held about you. Your right of access can be exercised in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998. Any access request may be subject to a fee of £10 to meet our costs in providing you with details of the information we hold about you.
