TERMS OF SERVICE
This website is operated by CarbonClick Limited. Throughout the site, the terms “we”, “us” and “our” refer to CarbonClick. CarbonClick offers this website, including all information, tools and services available from this site to you, the user, conditioned upon your acceptance of all terms, conditions, policies and notices stated here.
By visiting our site and/ or purchasing something from us, you engage in our “Service” and agree to be bound by the following terms and conditions (“Terms of Service”, “Terms”), including those additional terms and conditions and policies referenced herein and/or available by hyperlink. These Terms of Service apply to all users of the site, including without limitation users who are browsers, vendors, customers, merchants, and/ or contributors of content.
Please read these Terms of Service carefully before accessing or using our website. By accessing or using any part of the site, you agree to be bound by these Terms of Service. Where your access and use is on behalf of another person (e.g. a company), you confirm that you are authorised to, and do in fact, agree to these Terms of Service on that person’s behalf and that, by agreeing to these Terms of Service on that person’s behalf, that person is bound by these Terms of Service. In such event, and, in such event, “you” and “your” will refer and apply to that company or other legal entity in addition to you. If you do not agree to all the terms and conditions of this agreement, then you may not access the website or use any services. If these Terms of Service are considered an offer, acceptance is expressly limited to these Terms of Service.
Any new features or tools which are added to our products and services shall also be subject to the Terms of Service. You can review the most current version of the Terms of Service at any time on this page. We reserve the right to update, change or replace any part of these Terms of Service by posting updates and/or changes to our website. It is your responsibility to check this page periodically for changes. Your continued use of or access to the website following the posting of any changes constitutes acceptance of those changes.
Our systems are hosted on a variety of platforms or our own cloud hosting on Amazon Web Services. For our Shopify Clients our store is hosted on Shopify Inc. They provide us with an online e-commerce platform that allows us to sell our products and services to certain customers and merchants. We also provide products and services directly to customers and merchants through our website, and via links to Carbonclick contained in the email receipts for carbon offsets. Customers who click the link from their offset receipt, are welcomed to set up a Carbonclick account to track all their offsets and here they could also choose to use our carbon calculator or purchase offsets directly. If a customer sets up a Carbonclick account at their discretion, the activity and relationship with the customer and data pertaining to operating in their account, is owned by carbonclick.
SECTION 1 – GENERAL CONDITIONS
By agreeing to these Terms of Service, you represent that you are at least the age of majority in your state or province of residence, or that you are the age of majority in your state or province of residence and you have given us your consent to allow any of your minor dependents to use this site.
You may not use our products for any illegal or unauthorised purpose nor may you, in the use of the Service, violate any laws in your jurisdiction (including but not limited to copyright laws). You must not transmit any virus, worm, Trojan horse, timebomb, keystroke logger, spyware or other similar feature or any code of a destructive nature. A breach or violation of any of the Terms will result in an immediate termination of your Services.
You must immediately notify us if you become aware of any such breach or violation, by sending an email to [email protected]
We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone for any reason at any time.
You understand that your content (not including credit card information), may be transferred unencrypted and involve (a) transmissions over various networks; and (b) changes to conform and adapt to technical requirements of connecting networks or devices. Credit card information is always encrypted during transfer over networks.
The headings used in this agreement are included for convenience only and will not limit or otherwise affect these Terms.
SECTION 2 – ACCURACY, COMPLETENESS AND TIMELINESS OF INFORMATION
We are not responsible if information made available on this site is not accurate, complete or current. The material on this site is provided for general information only and should not be relied upon or used as the sole basis for making decisions without consulting primary, more accurate, more complete or more timely sources of information. Any reliance on the material on this site is at your own risk.
This site may contain certain historical information. Historical information, necessarily, is not current and is provided for your reference only. We reserve the right to modify the contents of this site at any time, but we have no obligation to update any information on our site. You agree that it is your responsibility to monitor changes to our site.
SECTION 3 – MODIFICATIONS TO THE SERVICE AND PRICES
We may change, suspend, discontinue, or restrict access to, the website without notice or liability.
Prices for our products are subject to change without notice. We reserve the right at any time to modify or discontinue the Service (or any part or content thereof) without notice at any time. We shall not be liable to you or to any third-party for any modification, price change, suspension or discontinuance of the Service.
SECTION 4 – PRODUCTS OR SERVICES
Certain products or services may be available exclusively online through the website. We
have made every effort to display as accurately as possible the details of the products that appear in our store. These products or services may have limited quantities, and in such instances, alternative products that are of the same quality and benefit, according to our best judgement, may be purchased instead.
We determine the date in which we purchase products from our suppliers to fulfill the order you purchased through our store. Our product purchase and carbon offset retirement dates may be influenced by market conditions, aggregated fund value, product availability, supplier agreements and other conditions not explicitly expressed. While we endeavour to always purchase stock in advance and clearly advertise which projects are being supported, we appreciate there could be factors beyond our control such as registration of projects to a registry and the retirement process. In the event we have a demand spike whereby all offsets for existing projects are sold prior to new inventory being made available in our system (being assessed, audited, purchased, and retired on the relevant registry), the purchase will be placed on back order and offsets from the same equivalent value and quality of projects will be sourced (subject to passing our strict audit and external review processes) to replace this stock. Upon redirection of the offset funds to the replacement projects, a receipt upon fulfilment of the order will be produced and distributed by email, and the offset registered into the relevant “My CarbonClick” account. We will purchase products to fulfill your order no later than the end of the fiscal month following the month in which your order is purchased through our store.
We reserve the right, but are not obligated, to limit the sales of our products or Services to any person, geographic region or jurisdiction. We may exercise this right on a case-by-case basis. We reserve the right to limit the quantities of any products or services that we offer. All descriptions of products or product pricing are subject to change at anytime without notice, at the sole discretion of us. We reserve the right to discontinue any product at any time. Any offer for any product or service made on this site is void where prohibited.
We have among the best and most thorough processes in the world to ensure high transparency and high quality offsets. However, we do not warrant that the quality of any products, services, information, or other material purchased or obtained by you will meet your expectations, or that any errors in the Service will be corrected.
SECTION 5 – ACCURACY OF BILLING AND ACCOUNT INFORMATION
We reserve the right to refuse any order you place with us. We may, in our sole discretion, limit or cancel quantities purchased per person, per household or per order. These restrictions may include orders placed by or under the same customer account, the same credit card, and/or orders that use the same billing and/or shipping address. In the event that we make a change to or cancel an order, we may attempt to notify you by contacting the e-mail and/or billing address/phone number provided at the time the order was made. We reserve the right to limit or prohibit orders that, in our sole judgment, appear to be placed by dealers, resellers or distributors.
You must provide true, current and complete information in your dealings with us (including when setting up an account), and must promptly update that information as required so that the information remains true, current and complete, so that we can complete your transactions and contact you as needed. If we need to contact you, we may do so by email or by posting a notice on the website. You agree that this satisfies all legal requirements in relation to written communications
SECTION 6 – OPTIONAL TOOLS
