TERMS OF INVOICING FOR OUR BUSINESS CUSTOMERS

Applicable from 7 September 2021 onward

Hey there, we’re so thrilled that you’re interested in taking action for the climate! In these Terms of Invoicing, you’ll find the terms applicable to you and us when you opt to pay for our Services by invoice.

These Terms of Invoicing serve as an addendum to our Terms of Use for Business Customers and other agreements that you conclude with us. All aspects not regulated with these Terms of Invoicing are regulated by the Terms of Use for Business Customers.

As you will remember from our Terms of Use for Business Customers, our “Services” mean the services that we offer under Compensate Plus (including any related campaigns such as the Compensate Christmas Campaign).

When opting to pay for our Services by invoice, please read through this agreement carefully. You can find this document at https://compensate.com/terms-of-use . If you have any questions, you can reach us via support@compensate.com

1. Terms of Payment (Invoice)

If you conclude an agreement with us under our Terms of Use for Business Customers, and you opt to pay for our Services by invoice, the following terms apply to you and us in addition to the Terms of Use for Business Customers.

Your opting to pay by invoice is considered an application from you to us to pay for our Services by invoice. Before accepting your application, we may conduct credit checks and other verifications, at our cost, to determine your creditworthiness. You agree to such checks and verifications. At our discretion, we may accept or reject your application, or we may impose maximum monetary amounts or other limitations on your option to pay by invoice.

You are responsible for giving us correct and current contact information for the purposes of invoicing, and keeping the information up to date with us at all times. 

After having submitted your purchase order or subscription, and you have applied to pay for the order or subscription by invoice and we have accepted your application, we will send you an invoice for the order or subscription without unreasonable delay. We will send the invoice by email or, if so agreed in writing, by other means such as letter, electronic message or e-invoice, using your contact details on file. With the invoice, we will confirm your order or subscription and specify the Services or other items in the order or subscription. We will indicate the prices of the items and Grand Total of your order or subscription on the invoice.

Unless stated otherwise, in writing, all of our prices are shown without value-added tax (VAT) and other taxes, public charges, tolls, levies or other similar payments. Where VAT or other taxes, public charges, tolls, levies or other similar payments are payable on Compensation Fees, Licensing Fees or other aspects of the Services or other items in the order or subscription, we will specify the type and amount of such payments on the invoice.

If you are domiciled in an EU country other than Finland, and you have a valid EU VAT ID, we may apply the EU VAT reverse charge mechanism if all conditions for its application are met. Unless you have indicated your valid EU VAT ID upon registering for our Services or upon submitting your order or subsrciption, you must notify us at info@compensate.com well in advance before we issue your invoice should you wish to apply the reverse charge mechanism.

Unless specified otherwise on the invoice, the payment term will be 14 days (net) from the date of the invoice. You undertake to effect payment of the Grand Total of the invoice by direct deposit or other type of bank transfer on the final day of the payment term at the latest. All payments must be effected using our bank account number (IBAN), recipient name, invoice reference number and other relevant information as shown on the invoice to ensure successful and timely transfer of the payment.

Unless agreed otherwise, in writing, all direct deposits or other bank transfers are to be made in € euro. We are not responsible for any fees, charges or other payments that you may incur for the direct deposit or other bank transfer.

All invoices are to be paid in full to the amount of the Grand Total indicated on the invoice. You may not make any set-offs or other deductions from the amount payable, or pay the invoice in instalments.

Should your payment be delayed beyond the due date, we may send you a payment reminder by email, letter, electronic message or other means of communication using your contact details on file. In such case, we are entitled to charge a payment reminder fee of 20 € per reminder. We will send one reminder after every two weeks that your payment is overdue.

Should your payment be delayed beyond the due date, we are entitled to charge late payment interest at 16% p.a., from the day following the original due date until the invoice has been paid in full.

We may add any payment reminder fees or late payment interests to your following regular invoices, or we may invoice you for them separately.

Should your payment be delayed beyond the due date, and you fail to pay the invoice and any related late payment reminder fees or late payment interests within a period indicated in the reminder, we may turn to a debt collection agency or start legal proceedings against you to recover the debt. In such cases, we are entitled to charge you for any and all debt collection or legal costs incurred as a result.

We may suspend, restrict, withdraw or otherwise negate your option to pay by invoice at any time without providing a reason. Such suspension, restriction, withdrawal or negation shall not affect the validity of already issued invoices or the application of these Terms of Invoicing to any current or future debts, whether or not already invoiced, the ground for which has resulted during the application of the Terms of Invoicing between you and us.

These Terms of Payment shall remain in force concurrently with our Terms of Use for Business Customers governing our contractual relationship. Any invoices that are outstanding shall remain valid until they are paid in full with final effect, and any related legal claims or issues are resolved. The termination, cancellation or other cessation of the application of the Terms of Use for Business Customers between you and us shall not affect the validity of already issued invoices or the application of these Terms of Invoicing to any current or future debts, whether or not already invoiced, the ground for which has resulted during the application of the Terms of Use for Business Customers between you and us.

2. Governing Law and Dispute Resolution

These Terms of Invoicing are governed by and construed under our Terms of Use for Business Customers as well as the laws of Finland, with the exception of choice of law provisions whose application would lead to the Terms of Invoicing being governed by or construed under foreign laws. 

We recommend that any disputes arising from or in connection with these Terms of Invoicing are resolved primarily by negotiation between you and Compensate. Please contact our legal customer service team first at legal@compensate.com

If the dispute, controversy, or a claim arising out relating to the Terms of Invoicing, or the breach, termination, or validity thereof cannot be settled in mutual negotiations between You and Compensate, it shall be finally settled by arbitration in accordance with the Arbitration Rules of the Finland Chamber of Commerce. The number of arbitrators shall be one (1), the seat of arbitration shall be in Helsinki, Finland and the language of the arbitration shall be English.

If no settlement can be reached, the dispute shall be settled by the Court of First Instance in Helsinki, Finland.
