From September 1st free account holders will be limited to 50 free downloads (and 50 free CSV exports) per year. When this limit is reached, members can choose to pay per document (£2 each) or subscribe to a membership plan.
Why the changes?
Company Check is used by over 3 million people each month, making us the most-used online supplier of business data.
Our goal is to offer the fastest, most easy to use service on the web and we continuously invest in our systems to ensure they are as scalable and robust as possible.
In recent months, due to the open nature of the service, we have seen usage well outside of our single-user license policy. On a large scale, this sort of high usage affects the performance of the website for both our free members and paying subscribers.
By introducing usage caps and device tracking on the new website, we aim to eradicate abuse of the system and improve the website for everyone.
