Thank you for participating in this initiative. These terms and conditions supplement the email confirmation which you have received after joining this initiative.
Please particularly 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.
You can use the logo immediately after having paid your membership fee. You cannot use this membership to refer to yourselves as CO2 neutral in general as this initiative 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 CO2 neutral”, not “green website” or similar as this may be misinterpreted. The icon shall follow the design from time to time determined by CO2neutralwebsite.com, however, size, colouring and position are up to you to decide.
Your membership will be prolonged automatically, when a period ends. This is so that we can ensure that your site is always carbon neutral through our projects. All renewals are for 1 year at a time. You can of course choose to leave the initiative before your participation is prolonged. This requires a written termination with a notice of at least 1 month before the end of a period. If you terminate later than 1 month before the next period, then we can't refund your rate. We can't refund rates, as the carbon reductions are done for 1 year each time.
Upon termination of membership, you shall immediately remove icon, references, etc. to the initiative. This is to prevent users from believing that you still participate upon expiry.
Your rates for participation shall not increase in the first year. But since the costs of carbon reductions may increase before the next term, we are liable to inform you of all increases in rates exceeding 15% in one year so that you can decide whether you still wish to participate. On increases of more than 15%, the notice of termination shall lapse, and you will be free to withdraw from the agreement giving one day’s notice.
All rights to the concept, the icon, etc., including intellectual property rights, by way of copyrights, patents, trademark rights, design rights, etc. shall be property of CO2neutralwebsite.com.
This initiative can communicate to third parties that you participate. This can be done in any way chosen by the initiative, also by use of your logo unless you mail to us that you do not accept this.
CO2neutralwebsite.com shall not be liable to 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.
CO2neutralwebsite.com can at any time chose in which way it completes the carbon reductions. All terms and conditions in this sheet as well as in email confirming you participation are confirmed by you when you pay the participant fee or use the icon.
