Terms and conditions

AGREED TERMS

Your attention is particularly drawn to the provisions of clause 10 (Limitation of liability).

1. About us

  1. Company details. SCB Brokers SA (company number CHE-113.417.077) (we and us) is a company registered in Switzerland and our registered office is at Avenue Perdtemps 23, 1260 Nyon, Switzerland. We operate the website climatepositive.com and starcb.com (Website).

  2. Contacting us. To contact us, email us at support@climatepositive.com

2. Our contract with you

  1. Our contract. These terms and conditions (Terms) apply to the order by you and the supply of Services by us to you (Contract). They apply to the exclusion of any other terms that you seek to impose or incorporate, or which are implied by law, trade custom, practice or course of dealing.

  2. Language. These Terms and the Contract are made only in the English language.

  3. Your copy.  You should print off a copy of these Terms or save them to your computer for future reference.

3. Our services

  1. Description. 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). 

  2. Confirmation of retirement only.  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 this contract, you only receive confirmation of retirement as an offset of the amount of CO2 you declared in your order.

4. Climate Protection Projects

  1. Third-Party service.  The CO2 savings realized 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.

  2. Depiction of Projects.  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.

  3. Projects are interchangeable.  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.

5. Placing an order and its acceptance

  1. Placing your order. 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.

  2. Correcting input errors. Please check your order carefully before confirming it. You are responsible for ensuring that your order is accurate.

  3. Accepting your order. Our acceptance of your order takes place when we send an email to you to accept it (Order Confirmation).  You cannot cancel the order once you have received your Order Confirmation. 

6. Payment  

  1. We will not handle any financial transaction with you: your transaction will be processed through our third-party payment services provider. You authorize our payment services provider to request funds from your credit, debit or other card providers. It is your responsibility to familiarize yourself with our payment services provider’s terms and conditions, which are different from these Terms.
