Next Plus terms and conditions.
1. About Us
We are E.ON Next Energy Limited, a company registered in England and Wales under company registration number 03782443. Our registered office is at Westwood Way, Westwood Business Park, Coventry, England, CV4 8LG.
We are your gas and/or electricity supplier under a separate agreement, the terms of which do not have any effect of these Terms.
2. About Our Terms
These terms and conditions (“these Terms”) explain how you may participate in Next Plus (defined below), including the E.ON Next Google Chrome Desktop Extension, called “E.ON Next Rewards” (“the App”) and any of its content.
These Terms apply between E.ON Next (we, us or our) and you, the person accessing or using the App (you or your).
You should read these Terms carefully before activating Next Plus, in particular clause 15 “Our liability”. By activating Next Plus or otherwise indicating your consent, you agree to be bound by these Terms. If you do not agree with any of these Terms, you should stop using Next Plus immediately.
3. E.ON Next Loyalty Programme Pilot (“Next Plus”)
Next Plus gives selected E.ON Next customers access to the Rewards (set out in clause 5.1 below).
The App is provided by Kindred Soul Ltd (“Kindred”), a social enterprise founded to use technology to help support conscious consumption and support initiatives to reduce the impact on our planet from our everyday shopping. Users of Kindred’s technology generate funds which are donated to environmental, social and governance initiatives. The App acts as a platform to connect you to various retail brands with which Kindred is in partnership (“the Online Merchants”) and their special offers.
When you make a purchase through the Next Plus scheme we receive commission, the amount will vary depending on the retailer. We will donate 100% of any commission we receive, and Kindred will donate 25% of their commission to fund projects which help reduce carbon emissions. Kindred is a social enterprise and donates at least 51% of its profits to good causes. We and Kindred will decide which charitable institutions to support as the best means of achieving a reduction in carbon emissions.
This is an E.ON Next Loyalty Programme Pilot made available to a randomly selected group of eligible E.ON Next customers, which commences from April 2023 and operates subject to these Terms, and subsists until such time as we may notify you (“the Pilot”). For the avoidance of doubt, E.ON Next reserves the right to withdraw, pause or amend Next Plus at any time.
