Gridio Terms of Use

An introduction to Gridio

Thank you for choosing Gridio. Gridio is providing a service to optimise the electricity consumption (i.e. smart consumption) of home energy devices and electric vehicles (Devices) based on the dynamics of electricity markets (the Service). Gridio‘s Services enable you to save money by making the Devices consume energy when electricity is cheaper and avoids consumption when electricity is expensive. 

Our contractual Terms of Use

In using and benefiting from our Services, you acknowledge that you have read the Terms of Use, outlined here, and that you agree to abide by them until you decide to stop using our Services. You remain free to choose whether you want to use our Services. For details on the termination process, please see Section 9 (Termination) below.

In so doing, you consent to Gridio collecting and processing the necessary personal data required to deliver our Services, in accordance with our Privacy Policy and in compliance within the terms of the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), insofar as it applies across the relevant countries. 

By agreeing to use our Services, you agree that you will not attempt to obtain unauthorized access, violate any applicable laws in use of service/information contained therein, and not to collect or store any personal information derived from the Service, whether for legitimate or illegitimate purposes. 

How does the service work

Gridio’s Service is available through a mobile or web application. In order to use the Service you need to connect your chosen Devices to Gridio using the instructions provided by Gridio. In order to benefit from the savings you need to have the appropriate electricity price contract such as an electricity tariff based on wholesale electricity prices that are aligned to Nordpool electricity prices.

Gridio’s Services allows you to charge your Devices during periods when the pricing is more favourable, thereby optimizing the amount of energy you use, and even allowing you to generate earnings based on a number of factors. For example - for electric vehicles, these factors include the volume of energy and the number of hours you designate for your Device to reach its target battery state of charge. In this way, you can generate earnings simply by charging your Device overnight at your designated home charging location.

Pricing

Unless otherwise specified, Gridio offers the Service free of charge for a limited period of time. After the limited time period, Gridio has the right to charge a period subscription fee for the Service, which you will be notified of and explicitly asked to confirm before Gridio makes any charges. Gridio reserves the right to set the price of the service according to its perusal.

Subject to the limitations set by law, Gridio, its employees and directors are not liable for any direct, indirect, incidental or consequential loss or damage, including but not limited to loss of profit or loss of revenue resulting from the use of the Service, whether based on warranty, contract or negligence.
