DESCRIPTION OF OUR SERVICES AND THE SOFTWARE
You can start off by using our App to calculate your CO2 footprint based on your lifestyle information which you provide to us. The CO2 footprint is based on calculation of the estimated greenhouse gas emissions caused by an individual, event, organization, service, place or product, expressed as carbon dioxide equivalent. This calculation is based on your lifestyle choices and is an estimation only. After calculating your CO2 footprint, the Software allows you to create an account and enjoy the advantages of the Club Leaf service. This service enables you to offset your CO2 footprint by earning or purchasing ‘Leaf’. Each Leaf you earn or purchase represents an amount of verified emission reductions (‘voluntary emission reduction’ or ‘verified emission reduction’; ‘VER’). With each Leaf you compensate your CO2 footprint.
On the website, Club Leaf will provide information on the CO2 offset purchases to demonstrate that the promised quantity of CO2 emissions have been reduced. This may include certification by an independent third party.
CREATING AN ACCOUNT
You can access the Software and calculate your CO2 footprint without an account. Before you can earn or purchase Leaf to offset your CO2 footprint, you are required to create an account. You can create an account by completing the fields in which you need to insert your personal information.
You undertake to provide accurate information when creating an account and shall refrain from creating an account under the identity of a third party. You must keep your username and password secret and prevent third parties from accessing your email account or mobile phone. You are solely responsible for the confidentiality of your identifiers (email address and password) and agree to immediately notify Club Leaf of any unauthorized transactions associated with the Software or any other breach of security. In no event shall Club Leaf and/or any third party be responsible for any losses or damages arising out of or related to (i) unauthorized or fraudulent transactions associated with the Software or (ii) the loss or theft of information from your Club Leaf account.
PURCHASE OF LEAF
Leaf can either be earned or purchased. You can earn Leaf by completing challenges. Once earned or purchased, Leaf cannot be exchanged for money.
You have the option to purchase separate Leaf incidentally or to purchase a subscription for a fixed number of Leaf per month.
The following terms of sale apply to all orders placed through the Software:
All prices are quoted on the website and app include applicable sales taxes and levies in accordance with Dutch law (the law of Club Leaf’s jurisdiction). Taxes shall be applied to the billed amount and shall be based upon the region the order is to be delivered.
To open an account, you must be (i) eighteen (18) years; or (ii) at least the age of majority in your jurisdiction of residence and from which jurisdiction you use the Software.
To purchase Leaf, you can make payment on the Software by credit or debit card or other payment method offered by Club Leaf. After the purchase has been confirmed, you will receive a confirmation of purchase by email, your credit or debit card will be authorized and the total amount will be prepared for payment. Once the payment has been processed, your Leaf balance will be updated in your account on the Software.
When you purchase a subscription, Club Leaf will bill you in the amount stated at the time of purchase, using the payment method you have specified. Subscriptions begin as soon as you have completed registration, including payment confirmation. Subscriptions automatically renew each month unless you cancel the subscription. In the event that Club Leaf changes its pricing, it will give you at least 30 days’ notice prior to the change. You may cancel subscriptions at any time by accessing our payment service provider’s customer portal found on your profile page, or by contacting Club Leaf using the contact details at the bottom of these Terms. Cancellations are immediate; no notice period is required.
e. Subscription term, renewal and fees payment:
Leaf may be purchased on a subscription basis for the term specified by you. By submitting a subscription request, you hereby authorise us, either directly or through our payment processing service, to charge the applicable subscription fees via your selected payment method upon the date selected by you. These subscription fees are non-refundable. In the event of a failure to collect the subscription fees owed by you, we may retry to collect the subscription fees at a later time, and/or to suspend or cancel your account without notice. If we record a decline, chargeback or other rejection of a charge of any due and payable subscription fees, this will be considered a breach of your payment obligations to us and your account may be disabled or terminated until such time as the applicable subscription fees (including any fees and expenses incurred by us or third party service providers) have been collected.
If you change your mind about purchasing Leaf, you will have the right to withdraw from purchase within 14 days of the transaction. For more information on how to exercise this right, please check out the FAQ page on our website.
We may cancel any order and/or refuse to accept or redeem any promotion code, discount or offer that it believes to be fraudulent, improperly obtained or is not being redeemed by the intended recipient of the promotion code, discount or offer.
