Terms of Service
Welcome to the Karbon-X App, which is provided by Karbon-X Corp or one of its affiliates (“Karbon-X”, “we” or “us”).
1. Your Relationship with Us.
You are reading the terms of service (the “Terms”), which govern the relationship and serve as an agreement between you and us and set forth the terms and conditions by which you may access and use the Karbon-X App and our related websites, services, applications, products and content (collectively, the “Services”). For purposes of these Terms, “you” and “your” means you as the user of the Services.
The Terms form a legally binding agreement between you and us. Please take the time to read them carefully. To agree to these terms of service, click “Continue”. If you do not agree to these terms of service, do not click “Continue”, and do not use the Karbon-X App. By participating in our Carbon Offset Program, you can purchase an individual, partner, family or business membership which will offset a set volume of carbon C02e emissions (“The Emission Reduction”). If you participate in our Carbon Program using the Karbon-X App or the Karbon-X Web Application, you agree to these terms of service when you click on “Pay Now”, or a comparable button and have successfully entered your payment information.
You must accept and abide by these terms of service as presented to you: Changes, additions, or deletions are not permitted, and Karbon-X may refuse access to the Karbon-X app for non-compliance with any part of these terms of Service.
1.2 Your Relationship to Third Parties.
2. Accepting the Terms.
If you are accessing or using the Services on behalf of a business or entity, then (a) “you” and “your” includes you and that business or entity, (b) you represent and warrant that you are an authorized representative of the business or entity with the authority to bind the entity to these Terms, and that you agree to these Terms on the entity’s behalf, and (c) your business or entity is legally and financially responsible for your access or use of the Services as well as for the access or use of your account by others affiliated with your entity, including any employees, agents or contractors.
You accept the Terms by accessing or using our Services. You understand and agree that we will treat your access or use of the Services as acceptance of the Terms from that point onwards.
You should print or save a local copy of the Terms for your records.
3. Changes to Terms of Service.
We amend these Terms from time to time, for instance when we update the functionality of our Services, when we combine multiple apps or services operated by us or our affiliates into a single combined service or app, or when there are regulatory changes. We will use commercially reasonable efforts to generally notify all users of any material changes to these Terms, such as through a notice on the Karbon-X App, however, you should look at the Terms regularly to check for such changes. We will also update the “Last Updated” date at the top of these Terms, which reflect the effective date of such Terms. Your continued access or use of the Services after the date of the new Terms constitutes your acceptance of the new Terms. If you do not agree to the new Terms, you must stop accessing or using the Services.
4. System Requirements.
Use of the Karbon-X App requires compatible hardware (fees may apply), Internet access (fees may apply), and certain software (fees may apply), and may require obtaining updates or upgrades from time to time. Because use of Karbon-X App involves hardware, software, and Internet access, your ability to use the Karbon-X App may be affected by the performance of these factors. High speed Internet access is strongly recommended. You acknowledge and agree that such system requirements, which may be changed from time to time, are your responsibility.
5. Karbon-X Services.
The Karbon-X Services we provide involve the following:
5.1 Carbon Offsetting.
We make it easy for our users to offset a portion of their personal carbon footprint. One effective way to do so is to purchase and retire CO2e emission reductions (the “Emission Reduction”). This is accomplished through our paid Carbon Offset Program (the “Carbon Offset Program”).
We purchase Emission Reductions from selected climate protection projects and retire them on behalf of our users. The climate protection projects we select meet our quality requirements. This process is also called “offsetting”. In this context, “retiring” means that a retired Emission Reduction can no longer be traded. It is thereby realized. Emission Reductions are traded in units of one metric ton. Users do not receive emission reduction certificates directly but rather receive Karbon-X badges as appreciation for supporting a carbon offset strategy, which we allocate to our users, and which are non-transferrable (the “Karbon-X Badge”). We bundle the many different Emission Reductions and retire the total number quarterly.
When you start your Carbon Offset Program, you can choose a personal, partner, family or business option depending on the type of carbon footprint you want to offset, and will represent the offsetting of 8 tonnes, 12 tonnes, 16 tonnes and 9 tonnes/employee respectively.
5.2 Choose a Project.
When you register for an account at Karbon-X you are able to choose a project to support. You will receive a Karbon-X Badge after supporting a project for ninety (90) days which will be shareable through various social media platforms.
5.3 Karbon-X Events.
Karbon-X will hold events from time to time that allow our users to gather and participate in environment clean-up initiatives. You will receive a Karbon-X Badge for any events that you attend.
5.4 Changes to the Karbon-X App Services.
We reserve the right to change our business model at any time.
6. Your User Account with Us.
You can open a user account either via the Karbon-X App, or directly via the Karbon-X website. During the registration process you will be asked to accept these “Terms of Service” and consent to the processing of your personal data.

7. Rights and Obligations of the User.
The Karbon-X App is offered to both individuals, partners (meaning 2 individuals cohabitating), families, and businesses.

A parent or legal guardian who is creating an account for a minor should review this Agreement with the minor to ensure that they both understand it.
8. Terms and Billing Periods.
When you open a user account and enter your payment information the account will be valid for an indefinite time period. You pay in advance for the defined billing period. The billing periods that are displayed within the Karbon-X App (or on the Karbon-X Website) apply when you book the paid service. If no other billing period is displayed, you will be billed monthly on the due date on which you started your participation in the paid service.
9. Termination of Carbon Offset Program.
You may terminate your participation in the Carbon Offset Program at any time for any or no reason, effective as of the end of the current billing period. To do so, you can simply use the appropriate function in the menu of the Karbon-X App or, if applicable, in your personal user account on the Karbon-X Website. Please note that deleting the Karbon-X App from your device will not terminate your participation in the Carbon Offset Program.
If you no longer participate in the Carbon Offset Program, your user account will remain in place unless and until you also cancel your account.
10. Termination of User Account.
You may delete your user account at any time for any or no reason, in which case this user agreement will terminate automatically.
To do so, you must send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, so that we can delete your user account and the associated data. Please note that after your user account has been deleted, all data and content you have uploaded will or may be deleted by us.

Any amount already paid by you for this billing period will not be refunded, not even on a prorated basis.
We may terminate the user agreement on two weeks’ prior written, signed or unsigned, notice by email, however at the earliest at the end of the current billing period of your Carbon Offset Program.

Payments for your Carbon Offset Program will be collected in advance for the current billing period.

We reserve the right not to offer certain payment methods and to refer you to other payment methods if there is a valid reason for doing so.
We reserve the right to assert any additional claims that may arise in the event of non-payment.
