Terms and Conditions
1. Our Contract with You
2. Registration Process
1. You must register on the HubBox App prior to making a Collection Request (unless you are offered HubBox directly at an online retailer’s checkout)

a. Your full name;
b. A Valid UK Billing Address;
c. Customer Account details; and

5. Once you have been given a HubBox ID you may make a Collection Request (see Clause 4 below).
6. If the information you have provided us with in registration is false, fraudulent or incorrect you will be prohibited from using the Service. We reserve the right to delay or suspend your registration until such time as you provide us with valid details (by using our contact form).
