14. Customer Savings Guarantee
14.1 Zembl provides a Customer Savings Guarantee to all Customers that receive a comprehensive bill comparison and change Suppliers by using the Zembl SwitchingService. The savings guarantee is intended to provide the Customer with the confidence that the new Supplier they choose will save them money, and is likely to do so for the following 12 months. However, this guarantee does not apply to the Do It For You Service; a separate “Zembl Assemble Guarantee” instead applies to that service, as described in the terms for that service separately provided to the Customer.
14.2 Should anyCustomer consider that a saving was not achieved after a period of 12 months under the new Supplier, then the Customer must present its bills for the past12 months to Zembl. Zembl will analyse those bills and compare:
(a) theCustomer’s total charges in those bills for the past 12 months; with
(b) what theCustomer’s total charges would have been for that same 12 month period, had theCustomer remained with the Existing Supplier on its existing product (but at the new prices for that product that would have applied, and the Customer’s actual consumption, for those 12 months).
Should Zembl conclude that the Customer did not indeed save money as a result of using the Zembl service, then Zembl will provide the Customer with $100 off their next energy bill.
15. Amending these Terms
Zembl may amend these Terms from time to time, to reflect Zembl’s reasonable business needs, by updating the Site. Any amendment will apply to Services provided after the date of publication.
