Our contract with you
- These terms and conditions (Terms) apply to the order by you and the supply of Services by us to you (Contract).
- These Terms and the Contract are made only in the English language.
- You should print off a copy of these Terms or save them to your computer for future reference.
- We give individuals, via individual contract, the opportunity to determine their greenhouse gas emissions and offset these emissions through our decommissioning of CO2 certificates from the climate protection projects we support (Services).
- We will ensure that a sufficient quota of suitable emission certificates is available for the contractually agreed CO₂ offset. You have no claim to the personal receipt of CO₂ certificates, or to the purchase, or any other specific use, of emission reduction certificates. Under these Terms, you only receive confirmation of retirement as an offset of the amount of CO₂ you declared in your order.
- Climate protection projects
- The CO₂ savings realised via our climate protection projects comprise a third-party service provided by independent operators, for which we assume no liability of our own and on which we may have no direct influence.
- Any descriptions or illustrations on our Website are published for the sole purpose of giving an approximate idea of the projects described in them. They do not have any contractual force.
- Although we only select projects whose operators are considered trustworthy and who are contractually obliged to comply with fixed standards (e.g. the ‘Gold Standard’ or the ‘Verified Carbon Standard’), we cannot guarantee a specific result in the reduction of emissions via a particular project. If there is an unforeseen delay to one of our carbon offset projects or if a carbon offset project fails to achieve certified emission reductions, we will ensure that CO₂ offsetting is provided through another project. Under no circumstances do we guarantee that the CO2 offsets you order will be provided via one particular project that we support.
- Placing an order and its acceptance
- Please follow the onscreen prompts to place your order. You may only submit an order using the method set out on our Website. Each order is an offer by you to buy the Services specified in the order subject to these Terms.
- Sometimes we may have to reject orders due to geographical or age restrictions. Presently, the Services are provided in the United Kingdom only. You must be at least 16 years old to be able to place an order for the Services, and by using our Services you warrant and represent that you meet our minimum age requirements. Furthermore, we may not be able to provide the Services to you, if you fail to provide the information set out in clause 12.5 below.
- Please check your order carefully before confirming it. You are responsible for ensuring that your order is accurate.
- We will contact you to confirm we’ve received your order and then we will contact you again to confirm that we have accepted your order (Order Confirmation).
- For the purposes of providing the Services to you, we will ask you for your vehicle and engine types and other relevant information which will enable us to calculate the emissions that you wish to offset. You are responsible for making sure that all such details are correct. If you have any questions concerning your CO2emissions, please contact our Customer Service Team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Cancellation and immediate provision of Services
- If you change your mind, please contact our Customer Service Team at email@example.com. We refund you as soon as possible and within 14 days of you telling us you've changed your mind. We refund you by the method you used for payment. We don't charge a fee for the refund.
- For most of our Services purchased online, you have the right to change your mind. You have 14 days after the date we send you an Order Confirmation to change your mind about a purchase, but:
you lose the right to cancel any Service when it’s been completed. This means that if you expressly request supply of Services during the cancellation period and we cancel the relevant carbon credits in connection to the Services, your right to cancel the Services will be lost. This is because once credits are cancelled for the purpose of providing the Services to you, it will not be possible to reinstate them in the relevant registry.
- For some of our Services purchased online there is no right to cancel your order. This is because such Services fall under the category of services for which the price is dependent on fluctuations in the financial market which cannot be controlled by us and which may occur within the cancellation period.
- We will charge you when you order.
- We will not handle any financial transaction with you: your transaction will be processed through our third-party payment services provider. You authorise our payment services provider to request funds from your credit, debit or other card provider. It is your responsibility to familiarise yourself with our payment services provider’s terms and conditions, which are different from these Terms.
- Once funds have been credited to our account, the name that will appear on your billing statement will be SCB Environmental Markets SA.
- We are not responsible for the delays outside of our control
If our supply of your service is delayed by an event outside our control, we will contact you as soon as possible to let you know and do what we can to reduce the delay. As long as we do this, we won't compensate you for the delay, but if the delay is likely to be substantial you can contact our Customer Service Team at firstname.lastname@example.org to end the Contract and receive a refund for any Services you have paid for in advance, but not received, less reasonable costs we have already incurred.
- Changes to these terms
- We can always make the following changes to these Terms:
- to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements; and
- to make minor technical adjustments and improvements, for example to address a security threat.
These are changes that don't affect your use of the service.
- We will always give you a prior written notice of the changes we made that are likely to affect your use of the Services.
- We can suspend supply of any of our Services
We do this to:
- deal with technical problems or make minor technical changes;
- update the service to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements; or
- make changes to the service.
- We can end our Contract with you and claim any compensation due to us if:
- you don't make any payment to us when it's due and you still don't make payment within 14 days of our reminding you that payment is due; or
- you don't, within a reasonable time of us asking for it, provide us with information, cooperation or access that we need to provide the service, for example information concerning your CO2 emissions.
- We do not compensate you for losses caused by us or by our Services
- We are responsible for losses you suffer which are caused by us by virtue of breach of any of these Terms unless the loss is:
- unexpected; it was not obvious that it would happen and nothing you said to us before we accepted your order meant we should have expected it (so, in the law, the loss was unforeseeable);
- caused by a delaying event outside our control; as long as we have taken the steps set out in the section We're not responsible for delays outside our control;
- avoidable; something you could have avoided by taking reasonable action, including following our reasonable instructions for use; or
- a business loss; our liability for any loss you suffer in connection with your trade, business, craft or profession is limited.

We are only responsible for content on our Websites for which we create, host, publish and disseminate the content ourselves. We are not liable for the accuracy and legality of third-party information and statements even if this information is made accessible on our Website or social media platform that we operate.
- We, and/or our third party licensors, own all of the rights, title and interest, including the copyright, in all of the information, data, text, graphics, links or computer code published, contained or available on the Website (Materials).

You agree not to reproduce, duplicate, copy, forge or otherwise manipulate, sell, resell, or exploit the sticker for any commercial purposes. You agree not to use the sticker in any fashion that conflicts with our values and goals.
- Third-party websites
- The Website may, from time to time, contain links to third-party websites that are not operated by us. Such links are provided for your convenience only and may include, among others, websites necessary for the purposes of taking payment from you, such as Stripe. We do not control such websites and are not responsible for their content. By including links to third-party websites, we are not endorsing any of the material on such websites or any association with their operators. You are solely responsible for assessing the accuracy and completeness of any information contained on third-party websites, and the value and integrity of any goods and services offered by such websites, and use of those third-party websites is entirely at your own risk.
- Privacy and data protection
- We cannot guarantee the security of information transmitted via the internet. Any loss incurred or sustained by you in transmitting information via e-mail or other internet links shall be borne solely and exclusively by you. In no event shall any such loss in whole or part be borne by us.
- How to resolve disputes with us
- If you have a problem, you can always contact our Customer Service Team, and we will do our best to promptly resolve any dispute.
- In the event if we were unable to resolve your dispute, you have the right to bring your claims against us in the English courts. These Terms are governed by the laws of England and Wales and we each irrevocably agree to submit all disputes arising out of or in connection with the Contract to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of England and Wales.
- Additional terms of the Contract
The obligations and liabilities of the parties incurred prior to the termination date shall survive the termination of the Contract for all purposes. These Terms are effective unless and until terminated by either you or us. You may terminate these Terms at any time by notifying us that you no longer wish to use our Services, or when you cease using our Website. If in our sole judgment you fail, or we suspect that you have failed, to comply with any term or provision of these Terms, we also may terminate the Contract at any time without notice and you will remain liable for all amounts due up to and including the date of termination; and/or accordingly may deny you access to our Services (or any part thereof).
Our failure to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. These Terms and any policies or operating rules posted by us on this Website or in respect to the Service constitutes the entire agreement and understanding between you and us and governs your use of the Service, superseding any prior or contemporaneous agreements, communications and proposals, whether oral or written, between you and us (including, but not limited to, any prior versions of these Terms). Any ambiguities in the interpretation of these Terms shall not be construed against the drafting party.
We might not immediately chase you for not doing something (like paying) or for doing something you're not allowed to, but that doesn’t mean we can't do it later.
Each clause of these Terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them is unlawful or unenforceable, the remaining clauses will remain in full force and effect.
- Nobody else has any rights under the Contract
The Contract is between you and us. No other person has any rights to enforce any of its terms.
