Single.Earth terms & conditions

Last updated 19.11.2021

About our services and this Privacy Policy

These Sandbox Terms of Use (Terms) is a contract between you and Single.Earth OÜ (a company registered and operating in Estonia under registry code 14873080) (‘we’, ‘us’, ‘our’) and they apply to your participation in the Single.Earth Landowner Sandbox (Sandbox) made available through our website single.earth.

By registering for, and using the Sandbox, you acknowledge that you have read, understood, and agree to be bound by the Terms.

1. Purpose of the Sandbox

Our primary goal is to contribute to the preservation of natural carbon sinks and biodiversity as one of the ways to mitigate climate change. Landowners have an important role in achieving this goal and our aim is to provide them with an easy-to-use solution for getting rewarded for preserving the natural environment. To achieve this, we have invited you to participate in the Sandbox through which you will be able to:

  • try out our preliminary version of the Land Management application and user account;
  • enter and modify your information in the application;
  • see our preliminary assessment of the carbon sequestration on your land;
  • use other functionalities we may develop during the process.

The Sandbox provides you access to an early version of the Land Management application. We will modify and enhance the application during the journey, both based on our own further research and development work and also based on your feedback. Information in the early version of the application may sometimes be inaccurate or incomplete or not all the functionalities may be always available – it means, we are testing.

Please note that our services, when commercially launched, may be subject to different regulatory restrictions and obligations (e.g., laws on anti-money laundering, on cryptoassets, etc.). This means that we may not be able to provide services to all persons and we may launch our services gradually in different geographies or for different types of landowners, etc. So even when you have participated in the Sandbox, we may not be able to start providing you services due to the above reasons.

2. Our expectations to you

You agree to use the Sandbox in good faith and provide us information which is true and complete (in material aspects). Your cooperation and feedback are very important for us. We expect you to report any flaws, errors or malfunctions discovered in any aspect of the functionality or content of the application. Both positive and negative feedback is most welcome.

You may not provide your login credentials to unauthorised persons. If you are our direct competitor or work for a direct competitor, you may not register for or access the Sandbox.

3. Intellectual property

All trademarks, trade names, logos, unique technical and scientific solutions or inventions, and any rights attached to such intellectual property, used and made accessible through the Sandbox are and remain the property of Single.Earth OÜ. Neither of us intend any joint development activities under these Terms, and both of us will endeavour to avoid the creation of joint intellectual property. Any feedback provided by you regarding our application and our corresponding actions is not deemed as joint development. If we both desire to jointly create any technology, materials, papers, or intellectual property as part of the Sandbox, we will enter into a separate written agreement.

4. Confidentiality and personal data

We acknowledge that certain information regarding you or your land or other information shared with us in the Sandbox is confidential. Similarly, certain information made available to you regarding us, and our business is confidential. We both agree that information that is available from public sources or which is or becomes available to the other party from third party without a breach of any confidentiality obligation is not confidential.

We agree to keep your information strictly confidential and use it solely for the purposes of development of our services. You agree that we may disclose your information to our employees, directors, legal advisers, auditors, and consultants we may use in the development process of our application. You agree to use our information only within the Sandbox environment and not to copy it, disclose, publish, or provide otherwise access to it to any third party without our explicit prior consent. You may disclose our information to your employees, legal advisers, or auditors solely for the purposes of assessing the functionality and benefits of our application. We both agree that when we disclose confidential information to third parties, we shall ensure that such third parties are bound by written agreements or law to respect confidentiality in the manner set out in the Terms.

The above confidentiality clauses do not apply if we have entered into a separate non-disclosure agreement.

In addition to the above, we will apply our Privacy Policy when processing any personal data and operating our website. The Privacy Policy is available here single.earth/privacy and is incorporated into these Terms by this reference.

5. Termination

Provided that there are no regulatory or commercial restrictions for us, you will be offered to continue using our application when we commercially launch our services. The services will be subject to new service terms. However, we reserve ourselves the right to close your access or limit certain functionalities of the application any time during the Sandbox phase. You may discontinue using the Sandbox and close your account any time by notifying us. Termination shall not affect the validity of the confidentiality and intellectual property clauses of these Terms, unless we enter into further agreements also regulating these matters.

6. Other matters

We may unilaterally amend these Terms at any time by posting a revised version on our website. The revised version will be effective from the time we have notified you of the publication of the revised version.

We apply the Terms also to any information shared and communication made between you and us prior to our agreement on these Terms.

Our website, the Sandbox and the test application are provided and made accessible in and from Estonia. These Terms are governed by the laws of the Republic of Estonia, without regard to principles of conflict of laws and the courts in Estonia shall have exclusive jurisdiction.
