We would like to ensure that our customers get a quality experience. We reserve the right to suspend or cancel a customer’s access to any of our services, if the account has been inappropriately used or in the event that the use of an account is adversely affecting the service level provided to our customers as a whole.

We reserve the right to change our Terms and Conditions when necessary.  It is the customer’s responsibility to ensure that they are up to date with our Terms and Conditions.  However, we will notify customers of any important changes we feel they need to be aware of.  By signing up to any of our services, customers agree to be bound to all of our Terms and Conditions.

The Terms and Conditions are outlined below and apply to all users of this domain; jtquote.com and all sub-domains related to JT Quote.  If you have any enquiries please do not hesitate to contact us. If you have any queries regarding these terms and conditions please telephone 01534 882641.

Registration

In order to apply for a quote using JT Quote you must enter your name, telephone number and email address on the Site, together with a reasonably accurate description of the service which you require (the “Job”).  By entering your details on the Site, you are confirming that you are over eighteen (18) years old and that you will abide by these Terms and Conditions.

You must ensure that the personal information entered by you is correct. There is more detail of the protection of your personal data in our Privacy Policy below, which describes the data we collect, the purposes of use and our rights of transfer.

The Service

JT Quote allows you to apply for a quote for the Job from the third party service providers (each a “Merchant”) shown on the Site.  Neither your application for a quote nor the receipt of a quote from a Merchant shall establish a binding contract between you and the Merchant for the service described in the Job.

The contract in relation to the Job as described in your quote application (or as otherwise agreed between you and a Merchant) is directly between you and the Merchant from whom you have accepted a quote.  Any queries or concerns relating to the Job should be addressed to the Merchant.

Availability of the Service

We reserve the right to suspend the Site at any time for operational, regulatory, legal or other reasons. Although we make reasonable attempts to ensure the Site is available at all times, there is no guarantee that the Site will be available at all times without interruption or free from errors, bugs or viruses. We retain the right to terminate without notice your use of the Site with immediate effect if you breach any of these Terms and Conditions.

Without limitation, JT shall have the right to reject and not forward to Merchants any quote application that it, in its sole discretion, finds to be in violation of the provisions hereof.

Furthermore, JT shall have the right, in its sole discretion, to refuse any and all current or future access to or use of JT Quote by any person where that person, in the reasonable opinion of JT, causes or allows another to cause the misuse of JT Quote.  Misuse of JT Quote shall include, but is not limited to:

  • sending Merchants hoax or timewasting quote requests;

Liability

JT warrants that it has the right to provide JT Quote and will use all reasonable skill and care in making JT Quote available and in ensuring its availability, but the Site is provided as it currently is and we do not guarantee that the Site will meet your expectations or requirements.

Data Protection Notice

This is the data protection notice referred to in the various JT Terms and Conditions applicable to our products and services (the “Conditions“). Terms defined in the relevant Conditions shall have the same meaning in this notice unless otherwise defined in this notice.

This notice applies to any natural person (a “data subject” or “you“) entering into a Contract with JT (“we” or “us“) or in relation to whom JT receives personal information in relation to a Contract. We may update this notice at any time.

JT is a ‘data controller’. This means that we are responsible for deciding how we hold and use personal information about you. We are required under the Data Protection (Jersey) Law 2018 and the Data Protection (Bailiwick of Guernsey) Law 2017 (as applicable, the “Data Protection Laws“) to notify you of the information contained in this notice.

It is important that you read this notice, together with any other data protection notice we may provide on specific occasions when we are collecting or processing personal information about you, so that you are aware of how and why we are using such information.

JT will process your personal information on the following legal bases:

  1. it is necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are a party (the “contractual necessity” basis);
  2. it is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation (other than a contract) to which JT is subject (the “legal obligation” basis);
  3. it is necessary for the purpose of legitimate interests (the “legitimate interests” basis) pursued by JT or a third party provided your interests and fundamental rights do not override those interests;
  4. if it is necessary to protect vital interests (life and limb) of the data subject or another person (the “vital interests” basis); or
  5. if it is necessary for any legal proceedings, obtaining legal advice or establishing, exercising or defending legal rights (the “legal proceedings” basis).

The purposes for which (and, in parentheses, the relevant legal bases on which) JT shall process your personal information in relation to the Contract are as follows:

  1. performing the Contract and providing the Service (legitimate interests and, where the data subject is a party to the Contract, contractual necessity);
  2. dealing with complaints or enquiries in relation to the use of the Service (legitimate interests);
  3. assisting the emergency services in an emergency (legitimate interests and, in some circumstances, vital interests);
  4. debt collection, credit referencing and preventing fraud, theft and other unlawful activity (legitimate interests); and
  5. compliance with applicable law or orders of a court or other body of competent jurisdiction (legal obligation).

Some of the above bases for processing will overlap and there may be several bases which justify the use of your personal information. We will only use your personal information for the purposes for which we collected it, unless we reasonably consider that we need to use it for another reason and that reason is compatible with the original purpose. If we need to use your personal information for an unrelated purpose, we will notify you and we will explain the legal basis which allows us to do so.

If you fail to provide certain information when requested, we may not be able to perform our obligations under the Contract and we may be prevented from complying with our legal obligations. In such circumstances, JT may suspend the Service and/or terminate the Contract.

JT may disclose your personal information to members of the JT Group and to third party sub-contractors or agents engaged by JT for the purpose of performing the Contract and providing the Service. JT may also disclose your personal information to persons making a complaint or an enquiry in relation to the use of the Service and, in an emergency, to the emergency services. Your personal information may be shared with other communications service providers and network operators, credit reference and debt collection agencies and the appropriate authorities for the purpose of preventing fraud, theft and other unlawful activity. JT may also be legally required to share your personal information with judicial, law enforcement, regulatory and governmental bodies or agencies.

JT will not transfer your personal information outside of Jersey or the European Economic Area or to an international organisation.

JT will store your personal information for no more than 6 years after your Contract has ended.

Under the Data Protection Laws, you will have the right in certain circumstances to:

  1. request access to your personal information (commonly known as a ‘data subject access request’). This enables you to receive a copy of the personal information held about you and to check that it is being lawfully processed;
  2. request correction of your personal information. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate information held about you corrected;
  3. request erasure of your personal information. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal information where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You will also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal information where you have exercised your right to object to processing (see below);
  4. object to processing of your personal information where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground. You also have the right to object where we are processing your personal information for direct marketing purposes;
  5. request the restriction of processing of your personal information. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of your personal information, for example if you want us to establish its accuracy or the reason for processing it; and
  6. request the transfer of your personal information to another party.

If you wish to review, verify, correct or request erasure of your personal information, object to the processing of your personal information, or request the transfer of your personal information to another party, you should contact JT in writing. JT has appointed a data protection officer who may be contacted at dpo@jtglobal.com. You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal information (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if the request for access is clearly unfounded or excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with the request in such circumstances.

We do not envisage that any decisions will be taken about you using automated means, however we will notify you in writing if this position changes.

Under the Data Protection Laws, you will have the right to make a complaint at any time to either the Jersey or Guernsey Data Protection Authority, the Island’s respective supervisory authorities for data protection issues.

Your Right to Object

It is important that you understand that you have a right to object to us processing your personal information where we do so exclusively on the basis of legitimate interests. As set out above, this applies to where we are processing your data for the purposes of:

  • performing a Contract to which you are not a party
  • dealing with complaints or enquiries in relation to the use of the Service
  • assisting the emergency services where there is no risk to life or limb
  • debt collection, credit referencing and preventing fraud, theft and other unlawful activity
