Terms and Conditions

 

When you sign up with Getting Irish Business Online (GIBO) and activate your account, you must accept the following terms and conditions that govern the initiative. We have tried to keep these as simple and straightforward as possible but if you have any doubts please contact us before activating your account and we be happy to clarify or explain them further.

About the scheme:

The Getting Irish Business Online scheme is an initiative sponsored and supported by a number of Irish Companies and Organizations (the sponsors). GIBO arranges for internet related products such as domain name or web hosting (the services) to be made available free of charge to businesses in the developmental stages of their life cycles.

Use of services:

The fundamental condition of participation in the scheme is that all services provided must be used for exclusively business related purposes by the person that is applying for the scheme.  Although the scheme is available to you as an individual in your capacity as a sole trader, partner in a business or if you are in the process of establishing a business, you agree that you are not a consumer and that this is a business relationship.

Payments and charges:

GIBO does not charge or take payment for any service directly provided under the scheme.  The  services supplied under this scheme will usually be supplied directly by various companies (the providers).

The services are delivered for a stated period (usually one year). Normally the period will start from the time you activate your GIBO account but if you sign up for some services at a later date, or if we introduce new services, the provider may instead allow the period for such services to begin from the time you request it.

Where a service is stated to be free,  its use in certain ways may still incur usage costs (for example certain outgoing phone calls on your VOIP line). In such cases, the individual service provider will make sure that you are informed about any potential charges before the activation of such a service and/or may require a deposit or guarantee before activating such services. It may be possible to upgrade your service with a provider to a paid service with additional features or capabilities. All ordering and payment in respect of such services will be arranged by the relevant provider.

Domain Names:

In the case of domain names, you may apply for a free domain name only if the requested domain will be used as the primary web address  of your business. If you wish to use an existing domain name you have registered elsewhere for participation in the scheme, you can indicate this on the application form.
