Conditions of access

In order to access the information contained on the platform and to carry out commercial transactions, in addition to the acceptance of these Terms and Conditions, it is necessary to register and create an Account. In order to register as a user of the platform, you must be at least 18 years of age.

During the process of creating an Account, the User is required to provide certain mandatory information indicated as such in the registration. There are two levels of registration and access. At the initial (basic) level, personal data, e-mail address and information about the entity are requested, among others. This level allows access to a series of basic functionalities of the platform and access to the e-Market space to view offers to buy or sell, but does not allow commercial transactions. In order to be able to publish offers, reply to them and close commercial transactions, a second level of registration is required, where more detailed information on the entity wishing to carry out commercial transactions and a bank account number will be provided.

During the process of creating an Account, the User is required to provide certain mandatory information indicated as such in the registration. For this purpose, the following, among others, are requested: personal data, e-mail address, entity information. This allows access to a series of functionalities of the platform and access to the e-Market space to view the offers and needs posted, as well as to contact the agents responsible for these offers.

Platform users are responsible for the veracity of the documentation provided and undertake to update this certificate annually on the platform.

The platform only authorises one account per User, except where expressly provided otherwise.

The User assures that the information submitted is true, complete and up to date. In the event that the information submitted is false, incomplete or outdated, the entity may prevent the User from accessing the platform.

The User is responsible for all activity on his/her account and agrees to maintain the security and confidentiality of the User's username and password at all times. The User of the platform may not share, assign or allow the use of his/her Account, User name and password to other persons and, in the case of legal entities, to third parties that are not part of his/her company.

The User declares that he/she will immediately notify the platform of any unauthorised use or any other breach of security related to his/her Account. This notification shall be sent to the e-mail address

The User agrees that all activities carried out through his Account (including, but not limited to, entering any information about the entity or product, clicking to accept any additional terms or rules, etc.) shall be deemed to be authorised by the User.

Operation of the Platform

By registering on the platform, users will be able to access the platform and proceed to post offers or needs related to the bioenergy sector (from biomass-based fuels to consultancy activities, and these offers, or needs may belong to the whole value chain related to this sector).

Once their offers/needs are registered within the platform, they will be visible to the rest of the users, who will be able to access them and contact them, with the aim of being able to carry out a commercial transaction. This transaction will take place outside the platform itself, although the platform may be used as a means of communication or as a starting point for the agreement.

Once these offers or needs have been registered within the platform, the user will be able to access a suggestion portal that will be automatically completed by the platform, so that it will show the records uploaded to the platform that are more closely related to the offer.

The platform also offers an instant messaging service, where it will be possible to contact (or be contacted) by those who wish to do so, thus facilitating contact between the actors involved in the bioenergy sector.

Conditions of publication of products

The User undertakes to comply with the entity's rules on the publication of information and sales practices.

The User is responsible for the truthfulness, accuracy and content of the information of the offer he/she publishes.

The User undertakes not to post any defamatory, libellous, slanderous, violent, obscene, illegal or otherwise offensive content, whether such material is protected by law or not.

The entity reserves the right (but shall have no obligation) to decide whether offers meet the requirements set out in these Terms and Conditions and, at any time and without notice, may remove offers from any User who provides content that violates these Terms and Conditions.

When the User posts an offer to sell a product, he/she is responsible for the accuracy of the quality data related to the product.
