TERMS AND CONDITIONS

Introduction

Below are the regulated conditions applied for users purchasing on www.7treesforlife.com, the web platform owned by 7 Trees For Life.

A user who proceeds to purchase a product from this platform agrees to have read and accepted the following terms and conditions.

A user of this platform (an individual, corporation, or institution) can request to plant one or more trees on their behalf or a third-party’s behalf. If a user is purchasing trees for themselves, the service is referred to as “Plant” one or more trees. If a user is purchasing trees for a third party, it is referred to as “Gifting” one or more trees. The owner of the tree is also the holder of a specific quantity of CO2, which is a conservative estimate of how much CO2 your tree will absorb.

7 Trees For Life ensures the planting of trees requested by users for themselves and third parties. The planting will be performed within agroforestry projects located in 7 Trees For Life approved areas. Projects are executed by local farmers, who carry out the planting of new trees and regular care for existing trees as a result of the economic contribution of the users on the platform.

Characteristics of the Service

A user purchases trees for themselves or a third party from the 7 Trees For Life website, and we will plant the trees on the user’s behalf. The user will not physically receive any product; the trees will be planted on 7 Trees For Life approved projects and not in the land available to the user. A user cannot claim ownership rights over the trees requested or the fruits produced by the trees. On completion of the purchase of trees, the user will agree to accept and respect the terms and conditions put forth by 7 Trees for Life.

The service offered shall be considered when 7 Trees For Life receives your request to plant the requested number of trees. Once planted, the user will receive a confirmation email.

Price of Service And Methods of Payment

The price for each token is provided in Rupees on the platform. The price is determined by the project and location of the land and may vary depending on the supply and demand of the product. The updated price list is published on the website, and the user shall consider the prices at the time of ordering.

The indicated price includes all charges, including Goods and Services Tax (GST) and is paid in a lump sum. Planting of the trees is not charged to the user. If the user requests the planting of more trees, the total amount to be paid to 7 Trees For Life will be indicated at the end of the shopping session before proceeding to the payment page. The final payment will be made in a lump sum through our payment gateway.

Implementation of Service

The planting process of the trees generally takes two crucial steps. First, the nursery is set up, and seedlings are planted. This process takes no more than 30 days upon receiving the request from the user. Second, once the saplings have grown to an appropriate height, they will be transplanted into the ground, which will be no more than 18 months of acceptance of the request.

Force Majeure

7 Trees For Life is exempt from all responsibility for the total/partial non-performance of any obligations put forward in these terms and conditions if the failure is caused by unpredictable events and/or natural events, occurring outside of its control and its responsibilities, including but not limited to natural disasters, wars, acts of terrorism and riots. Note that trees selected by the users may not be available at the appropriate time when the transplant should be implemented due to reasons under force majeure. It also may not be possible to proceed with the process in the below-mentioned circumstances:

  • Unable to operate in the location indicated on the website at the time of order due to climatic, political or ecological, when operations are challenging to manage and maintain.
  • Unable to operate under safe circumstances due to social or political unrest in requested locations.
  • Rooting failures of the species in the nursery or an increased probability of the species not taking root once transplanted.

The process and timeframes may vary depending on the seasonal cycles and conditions of the land where the projects are implemented.

In the cases referred to in points 2 and 3, the user agrees that the planting service requested may be carried out in different locations or with different species, being understood that the number of trees to be planted will not differ from the quantity requested initially. The total CO2 storage capacity will also not be less than the estimate provided to the user at the time of placing the order.

IT Process

To request a planting service online, the user has to register on the 7 Trees For Life website and read and accept the terms and conditions. Once the registration is complete, the user can avail the services and information available on the website. After successfully placing an order to plant a certain number of trees, the user becomes a virtual account holder in the platform. The user owns the tree and the corresponding CO2 that the tree will absorb over time.

If a user does not log into the platform for six consecutive months, the CO2 absorbed by their trees will become usable in full or in part for other users. Before that happens, a reminder email will be sent to the user to log back in and remain the account holder of the CO2. With respect to “Gifting a Tree”, where a recipient has not registered on the 7 Trees For Life website, the tree will be assigned when the recipient completes the registration process. In case the recipient does not register during the prescribed time frame, the account holder of the trees will be transferred to the user who requested and completed the payment for the trees.
