Terms and conditions of service

Thank you for subscribing to this service.  These terms and conditions supplement the email confirmation which you received - or will receive - after subscribing to the service.

Website traffic

Please note that it is important that you keep us up-to-date as to whether your traffic figures exceed the agreed interval (calculated as average per month, stated by quarter).  As we do not audit your traffic in any way.  It is your responsibility that the information is correct.  This is to ensure that we complete sufficient carbon reductions.

Icon for your website

You can use the icon immediately after having paid your subscription fee.  You cannot use this subscription to refer to yourselves as CO2 neutral in general as this service merely concerns your website specifically (including the use of the website).  We recommend that you refer to your efforts as “our website and the use of it are carbon neutral”, not “green website” or similar as this may be misinterpreted.  The icon shall follow the design from time to time determined by Carbon Neutral Websites Limited.  However, the size, colouring, and position are for you to decide.

Termination

Your subscription will be prolonged automatically, when a period ends.  This is so that we can ensure that your website maintains its carbon neutral status via our carbon reduction projects.  All renewals are for one (1) year at a time.  You can, of course, choose to leave the initiative before your subscription is extended.  We ask that you provide a written termination with notice of at least one (1) month before the end of a subscription period.  Once a subscription is paid, the subscription amount is non-refundable.  We can not refund subscription rates as a subscriber's carbon project(s) are funded for one (1) in advance, at the time of subscription payment.

Upon termination of subscription, you shall immediately remove icon and all references relating to Carbon Neutral Websites Limited.  This is to prevent users from believing that you are still subscribed to the Carbon Neutral Websites service upon expiry of your subscription.

Rates

Your subscription rate will not increase in the first year.  But, as the costs of carbon reduction may increase before the next annual subscription period, we are liable to inform you of any increase in renewal subscription rate exceeding 20% in one year so that you can decide whether you still wish to subscribe.  On increases of more than 20%, the notice of termination shall lapse, and you will be free to withdraw from the agreement giving one day’s notice before any new subscription is concluded.

Rights, breach, damages, etc.

All rights to the concept, the icon, etc., including intellectual property rights, by way of copyrights, patents, trademark rights, design rights, etc. shall be the property of Carbon Neutral Websites Limited.

Carbon Neutral Websites Limited can communicate to third parties that you participate.  This can be done in any way chosen by Carbon Neutral Websites Limited, including by use of your logo unless you communicate to us via email that you do not accept this.

Carbon Neutral Websites Limited shall not be liable for any damages in any respect for any direct or indirect losses caused by this initiative, including but not limited to lost earnings, consequential losses, or other consequential damage.

Carbon Neutral Websites Limited can at any time chose in which way it completes the carbon reductions.  All terms and conditions in this sheet as well as in the email confirming you subscription are confirmed by you when you pay the subscription fee or use the icon.
