4 Use of the EV Charging Network
4.1 You are permitted to use any available Charge Points on the EV Charging Network in accordance with these Terms of Service.
4.2 We aim to ensure that the EV Charging Network is available and operational at all times.
4.3 In the event that You discover an operational issue with the EV Charging Network, You should contact Us as soon as possible by calling Our Customer Care team, by sending an email to email@example.com, via Our Website, or through the Mobile App.
4.4 If maintenance or repairs are planned or necessary at or to a Charge Point or any Charge Point Equipment, We will try to make the latest operational status information of the affected Charge Points available on the Charge Point Map.
4.5 Except where there is a health and safety issue or where there is an issue beyond Our control (including where there is a fault on the local electrical network), We will try to ensure that only those Charge Points on the EV Charging Network that are operational or available, are advertised for use on the Charge Point Map.
4.6 If You access one of Our Charge Points through our EV Charging Network, You may activate the Charge Point by using a Charge Point Access Card, a contactless payment card, or the Mobile App. If You use the services of a Third Party Service Provider to use a Charge Point on our EV Charging Network, then You must use the access mechanisms they advise to use to activate the Charge Point.
4.7 When You use a Charge Point You agree and acknowledge that there may be access or parking restrictions that apply in the area around that Charge Point. You accept that You will be responsible for the payment of any applicable fees (including but not limited to any parking fees and/or fines) to the relevant authorities or third party organisations in connection with using a Charge Point.
4.8 You agree to use all Charge Points in a fair and reasonable manner at all times, and to abide by any local notices or restrictions in the vicinity of the Charge Points.
4.9 You agree to promptly disconnect Your EV and vacate the parking bay in which the Charge Point You have used is located as soon as possible once You have finished charging Your EV.
4.10 Once You have finished charging Your EV at one of Our Charge Points, if applicable, You agree to return the charging connector carefully and securely in the holster on the Charge Point. Failure to do so may result in the Charge Point believing that You are still using the Charge Point, and may result in You incurring an Overstay Fee (on Rapid Charge Points and High Power Charge Points).
4.11 You will not:
4.11.1 tamper with any Charge Point;
4.11.2 use any Charge Point or the parking bay in which it is located for any purpose other than for the charging of an EV;
4.11.3 connect any cable, adapter, connector, switch or other interface to a Charge Point which is not fit for purpose and/or fully compliant with all relevant laws, regulations and specifications. Any Use of any such interface will be entirely at Your own risk;
4.11.4 abandon any cables used to charge an EV at a Standard Charge Point, Fast Charge Point or Rapid Charge Point by disconnecting them from an EV while the other end remains locked in the Charge Point once charging finishes. Should this occur, We reserve the right to remove (and dispose of) these cables from the Charge Point;
4.11.5 use the Service in a manner which is, or which has a purpose or effect which is, harmful, unlawful, fraudulent, disruptive, which causes nuisance or which is in connection with a criminal offence;
4.11.6 act in any way which prevents, impairs or jeopardises the operation of any Charge Point: or
4.11.7 leave Your EV connected to a Charge Point after charging finishes. If this happens, We will be entitled to charge a fee (the amount of which is specified in the Price Plan Terms and Conditions).
4.12 We cannot guarantee that Our Website, Mobile App, and/or access to the Charge Point Map will always be available, fault-free and secure and We do not guarantee that the information contained on these is correct and up to date.
4.13 The Charge Point Map and/or Our Mobile App may use Your location information so that We can try to provide You with accurate charge point location information based on Your location. You may choose to disable this in the settings on the device on which you access the Charge Point Map and/or Our Mobile App, but this may reduce the accuracy and functionality of the Charge Point Map and/or Mobile App (as relevant).
4.14 We may use third party applications, services and/or software to support Your use of Our Charge Points, Website, Mobile App and/or the Charge Point Map. Where We do so, and You use these, You agree to the use of these third party services and/or software.
5 Health and Safety

5.2 You will handle all Charge Point Equipment with care and in a safe manner.
5.3 You agree not to deliberately damage, mistreat or otherwise compromise the EV Charging Network’s ability to function in any way.

You will not use any other means to charge Your EV.
5.5 When using a Charge Point on the EV Charging Network You agree to respect and follow all safety related instructions, notifications and advice as issued and/or published by Us on Our Website, the Mobile App or otherwise.

6.5 When using a Charge Point on Partner Networks, You:
6.5.2 will follow all rules, guidance and directions as issued and/or published by the Partner Network operator;
6.5.3 will respect and follow all safety related instructions, notifications, and advice as issued and/or published by the Partner Network operator; and

6.6 Charge Points available on Our Partner Networks through Our Roaming Service are operated independently of the EV Charging Network. If You use these Charge Points through Our Roaming Service, We may charge or bill You for this use. Other than for charging and billing purposes, We therefore do not accept any responsibility or liability whatsoever for any issues arising out of or in connection with Your use of these Charge Points.
6.7 The reliability and dependability of Charge Points made available to and used by You through the Roaming Service is the responsibility of the Partner Network operators.
6.8 In the event of You having a health and safety – related concern or issue when using a Charge Point through the Roaming Service, You should immediately stop using the Charge Point, and contact the emergency services on 999 or 112.
7.1 You will pay for the Service in accordance with Your chosen Price Plan, as defined in the Price Plan Terms and Conditions. This may incorporate fixed, variable, one-off and/or recurring charges. All pricing elements will be clearly communicated to You by Us.
7.2 Payments for Your use of the Service are to be made in the currency as indicated during Your registration to use the Service, or in the case of one-off pay-as-you-go and Contactless Payment customers, the local currency applicable at the Charge Point, all in accordance with the Price Plan Terms and Conditions.
7.3 Where You access Our EV Charging Network through the services of a Third Party Service Provider, the pricing for the use of Our Charge Points will be the fees and prices published and set by that Third Party Service Provider, and not those advertised as being applicable to ESB Energy customers.
8 Overstay Fees
In order to ensure efficient use of the EV Charging Network, and to discourage inappropriate use of Charge Points, an overstay fee may apply if the duration of Your charging session exceeds a specific time threshold. The relevant time threshold, as well as the amount of the Overstay Fee, is specified in the Price Plan Terms and Conditions. If You incur an Overstay Fee, it will be included in the overall charge to You.
9.1 We accept electronic payment via all major debit and credit cards, including Visa, Mastercard and Maestro. Additional payment options and/or payment types may be added over time.
9.2 Payment card details stored on Your Account to facilitate Your use of the Service may be updated or modified by You online via Our Website or via the Mobile App.
9.3 Details of a valid payment card with sufficient funds available must be provided by You to Us. A pre-authorisation for a nominal amount will be carried-out during Account registration, where a new payment card is added, or in the case of Contactless Payment or one-off pay-as-you-go charging, in order to confirm card validity. However, Your payment card will not be debited with this sum.
9.4 Payment collection will be based on the type of Account You have with Us. We will collect payment immediately in the case of pre-pay Accounts i.e. upon initial Account registration or when You instruct Us to do so (e.g. by indicating that You wish to perform a top-up). In the case of post-pay Accounts, We will collect payment in line with the Price Plan Terms and Conditions. We reserve the right to vary payment collection dates for system or data processing reasons if We need to. Where Contactless Payment is used, or for one-off, pay-as-you-go charging, We will collect payment as soon as you have finished charging Your EV at the Charge Point.
9.5 If a payment by You to Us is declined or fails for reasons associated with payment card validity, lack of adequate funds, or other card-related issues not connected with Our payment processing systems, We will let You know. In the case of post-pay accounts, the Service will be temporarily suspended if Your payment fails, pending the rectification of the payment issue by You and the successful collection by Us of the amount due. We reserve the right to charge a late payment fee in addition to the amount due, details of which will be specified in the Price Plan Terms and Conditions.
9.6 In the event that You fail to make a payment to Us for the full amount due within 14 days of the initial payment failure, Your account will be disabled and all Charge Point Access Cards de-activated.
9.7 You will need to contact Us to pay the outstanding balance on the Account and have it re-activated. We (or Our agents acting on Our behalf) will be entitled to take all necessary steps required to recover any outstanding amounts due.
9.8 Where You use the EV Charging Network via a service offered by a Third Party Service Provider, that third party will be responsible for collecting payment(s) from You.
10 Cooling Off Period
If You register for an Account with Us, irrespective of the type – either post-pay or pre-pay, You may choose to terminate the Service and the Terms of Service within 14 days of Account Activation. You will be responsible for any costs incurred during this period, whether usage or service-related. All cancellation requests should be directed to Our Customer Care Team or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
11 Charge Point Access Cards
11.1 In order to access the EV Charging Network, You may choose to use a Charge Point Access Card. Charge Point Access Cards will remain valid provided the Account to which they are associated is active and is not in arrears (e.g. due to missed payments). Multiple Charge Point Access Cards may be active (and used simultaneously) on Your Account at any one time.
11.2 Charge Point Access Cards are Our property and should be returned to Us by You if Your Account is closed.
11.3 You, or any third party working on Your behalf, will not tamper with, modify, copy, reverse engineer (or similar) any Charge Point Access Card. Detection by Us of any such activities will result in immediate Account suspension. We reserve the right to recover any costs, losses and/or damages incurred by Us arising out of or in connection with unauthorised access to, or misuse of, a Charge Point Access Card and/or any data or software held on the card.
11.4 If Your Charge Point Access Card is lost or stolen, You must contact Our Customer Care Team immediately to deactivate it.
12 Account Activation
12.1 Your Account will be fully set up, and the Service made available, from the point at which You complete the registration process by telephone, on Our Website or in the Mobile App, and provide verification (either by clicking a link contained in a verification email You receive from Us, or by entering a numeric code sent to You by Us via SMS in the Mobile App) that You want the account to be activated. We aim to send out any associated Charge Point Access Card(s) within 7 days of the date You order one (either automatically by the system or manually).
12.2 For the avoidance of doubt, you do not need an Account with Us for any one-off, pay-as-you-go charging or where a Contactless Payment is used.
12.3 You are responsible for the accuracy and completeness of any information You provide to Us in connection with the Service or Your Account.
13 Service Cancellation / Account Closure
