The following terminology applies to these Terms and Conditions, Privacy Statement and Disclaimer Notice and any or all Agreements: “Client”, “You” and “Your” refers to you, the person accessing this website and accepting the Company’s terms and conditions. “The Company”, “Ourselves”, “We”, “Our” and “Us”, refers to our Company. “Party”, “Parties”, or “Us”, refers to both the Client and ourselves, or either the Client or ourselves. All terms refer to the offer, acceptance and consideration of payment necessary to undertake the process of our assistance to the Client in the most appropriate manner, whether by formal meetings of a fixed duration, or any other means, for the express purpose of meeting the Client’s needs in respect of provision of the Company’s stated services/products, in accordance with and subject to, prevailing law of United Kingdom. Any use of the above terminology or other words in the singular, plural, capitalisation and/or he/she or they, are taken as interchangeable and therefore as referring to same.
The user who proceeds to buy a service on this platform agrees to have read and accepted the following terms and conditions.
The user of the platform (whether it is an individual, a company, an institution, etc.) may request to plant, within the agroforestry projects promoted by Evertreen, one or more trees. The service is generically referred to as “plant” one or more trees. The user becomes virtual holder of a tree and also virtual holder of a specified quantity of kilograms of CO2, which represents an estimate of how much CO2 the tree will absorb, except as detailed in section 6 (IT procedures).
Evertreen accounts for itself and for third parties to transfer the planting order requested by the user to the responsible partner, selected by Evertreen. The planting is performed within agroforestry projects located throughout the world, which are approved by Evertreen if they are deemed suitable to be promoted on the platform and comply with Evertreen’s requirements and operational criteria. These projects are executed by local farmers, who carry out the planting of new trees as a result of the economical contribution of the users of the platform. Often (but not necessarily) farmers operate under the coordination of cooperatives, Not-for-profit or other organizations working in the area of the project.
1. PROFESSIONAL IDENTITY
The platform www.evertreen.com is owned by CG GREEN SOLUTIONS LTD.
company number: 12581125
2. ESSENTIAL CHARACTERISTICS OF THE SERVICE
The user purchases, upon payment, the planting service of one or more trees within the projects promoted by Evertreen. Evertreen shall, on its behalf or of third parties, transmit the planting order to its partner in charge of the selected agroforestry project and make its best effort to organize the planting service requested by the user. Evertreen can provide additional services, graphics and marketing material at its discretion.
Since the object of the transaction consists of a intermediation service, the user will not physically receive anything arboreal; in fact, the trees are exclusively planted within the land involved within the projects approved and supported by Evertreen, but not in land(s) available to the user. As a result, the user cannot boast nor claim any ownership rights over neither the trees requested to plant nor the fruits produced by the trees. Please note that Evertreen’s services are charged as an arrangement fee between yourselves and the end supplier.
The user, through the execution of the purchase order, declares to have read and accepted the general terms and conditions set forth below and agrees to observe and respect them in its relations with Evertreen or third parties as part of the service in question.
The contract for the service offered shall be considered completed when Evertreen receives, from the user, the request for planting. Evertreen will promptly send to the user a notification for having received the planting order (by e-mail).
In light of the nature of the service, by accepting this contract, the customer agrees to its immediate execution, meaning Evertreen may proceed, even immediately, with the planting service delivery requested.
3. PRICE OF THE SERVICE AND METHODS OF PAYMENT
The cost for planting each individual tree is expressed on the platform in Pound Sterling (£).
The price is determined by Evertreen and its full discrection, based on the tree species, the CO2 absorption potential, the country where it is planted, and may vary depending on the level of supply and demand, as well as specific promotional campaigns. Therefore, the price of each arboreal element will vary from species to species and the same species may have different prices in different periods. The updated price list is published at the following web address: https://evertreen.com/plant-trees/ and the user shall consider the indicated prices as a reference at the time of each order.
The indicated price is inclusive of all charges, and is paid in a lump sum. The planting service does not require by the user any additional cost.
If the user, contextually, requests the planting of more arboreal elements, the total amount to be paid to Evertreen will be indicated at the end of the shopping session, that is before proceeding to the payment.
The payment is made in a lump sum at the time of the online purchase. The system is controlled by the electronic payment platforms Stripe and Paypal. If the purchased service consists of a recurring payment (annual, semi-annual, quarterly, monthly, daily), the amounts will be automatically credited to the payment method selected by the user (upon explicit approval by the user at the time of purchase). The user may express the desire to discontinue the subscription at any time. If the user does not express a desire to discontinue the activated subscription, but the payment method is about to expire, Evertreen may advance the date by one renewal before the payment method expires. All sales are final and Evertreen offers no money-back guarantee. Each order of planting a tree is unique and cannot be reversed. You acknowledge and agree that you are not entitled to a refund of any tree planting service purchased under any circumstances.
4. IMPLEMENTING RULES
Upon purchase, the user indicates the desired amount of trees to be planted, choosing from the available species. Evertreen shall, on its behalf or of third parties, transmit the planting order to its partner in charge of the agroforestry project selected by the user with the timeframes indicated below.
The planting service is usually carried out in two stages: the setting up of the tree in the nursery and the transplant. The first stage takes place within 12 months from the request of the user, and the second no later than 24 months from the request.
These timeframes may vary depending on the conditions and seasonal cycles of the areas where the planting projects are implemented.
5. FORCE MAJEURE
Evertreen is exempt from all responsibility for the total or partial non-performance of any obligations set forth in these general sales conditions, if such failure is caused by unpredictable events and/or events outside of its control and its responsibility, including, but not limited to, natural (disasters) events, acts of terrorism, unlawful acts, wars and riots.
It should be noted that, for reasons of force majeure, the species selected by the user within the order process may not be available at the appropriate time when the transplant should be implemented. Similarly, it may not be possible to proceed to transplant in the country indicated on the platform at the moment of the order.
This may occur in the case of:
- impossibility to operate in the country indicated on the platform at the time of the order due to climatic, ecological, political, social adversities, that is operational difficulties to properly manage and maintain the project;
- impossibility to operate, under safe conditions, in the countries in which it is possible to plant the requested species either from Evertreen’s staff considerations and/or the agricoltural and environmental conditions for the growth of the trees;
- rooting failures of the species in the nursery or a high probability that the species, once transplanted, does not take root;
- possible failure to plant the species chosen by the user as a result of events that are not predictable and not attributable to the work of Evertreen, such as, but not limited to, the sudden difficulty in obtaining the raw agricultural materials or the unexpected and unpredictable raising cost of the planting and the management of the species itself, determined by events unrelated to the relationship between Evertreen and the user (including, but not limited to, pharmaceutical discoveries) that do not allow to implemet, under the conditions agreed upon, of the agreement between parties.
In the cases referred to in paragraphs 2 and 3 of this article (or in similar cases), the user agrees that the planting service requested may be carried out in different countries and/or with different tree species, being understood that the quantity of trees planted will not be less than the ones originally requested and, in any case, that the total CO2 storage capacity will not be less than the one estimated, by the user, at the time of the request of the planting order.
6. IT PROCEDURES
In order to request the planting service online (on its behalf or on behalf of third parties as part of the “give a tree” service), the user has to register into the Evertreen community and have read and accepted the Information on the processing of Personal Data.
After the registration, the user can avail the services and information available on the platform described in detail herein.
Following the implementation of a planting order (carried out by the user) the user becomes a “virtual accountholder” in the platform. The virtual accountholder owns the tree and the corresponding kgs of CO2 that the tree will, supposedly, absorb over time.
Among the services available on the platform (detailed therein), there is the possibility for the user to calculate its CO2 emissions and neutralize them, thanks to the kgs of CO2 that each user is provided with in relation to the implemented planting orders.
