1. DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE SERVICE
Upon successful registration in the Webstore and the subsequent valid order, the Provider – with the assistance of Forestry – plants a number of tree saplings corresponding to the ordered quantity and tags them with a card individually numbered and dedicated to the User’s name.
Accordingly, a photograph is taken of the tree sapling(s) individualized in the User’s name. The Provider sends this photograph to the User in an email confirming the fulfillment of the Service.
2. UTILIZATION OF THE SERVICE: ORDER
The User can place the order through the Webstore. For a successful purchase, it’s necessary for the User to provide all the data requested by Plantatree Nonprofit Ltd. during the registration without omission. During registration, if the User provides incomplete data, the Webstore will notify the User with a warning message and correction will be necessary for successful registration. Plantatree Nonprofit Ltd. is not responsible for any problem, delay, or error due to data inaccurately or wrongly provided by the User during registration or ordering. By purchasing, the User declares that they have read and accepted the present Terms of Service and the Data Protection Policy published on the website and consents to the data processing contained in the Data Protection Policy. Simultaneously with the order, the User can consent to receiving offers, advertising materials from Plantatree Nonprofit Ltd. by email, SMS, or postal mail. Only persons over the age of 16 can register in the Webstore; by registering, the User declares that they have reached the age of 16.
Ordering is exclusively possible in the Webstore, through the online system of www.plantatreeproject.com, electronically, via the internet. The Provider does not accept registration requests made by phone, fax, email, or letter. Information related to the order and the Service is also sent electronically to Users. During registration, the User provides the following data:
For individuals: name, country, city, postal code, street, house number, email address, phone number, optionally: Instagram account.
For legal entities: company name, country, city, postal code, street, house number, tax number.
If the User provides incorrect, inappropriate, non-existent data, or if their email inbox is overloaded, the Provider isn’t liable due to the non-completion or impossibility of registration.
By placing an order, the User communicates their intent to utilize the Service, to which the Provider sends an automatic confirmation within 24 hours. The Webstore sends an automatic confirmation about the order to the email address provided during ordering, simultaneously informing the User about the order details and any necessary information related to payment. The contract between the Parties is established by sending the order.
The confirmation always includes the User’s name, acceptance of the order, information about fulfilling the order, and its verification.
If the User doesn’t receive the confirmation for any reason, they should notify this at the email@example.com email address.
In the Webstore, it is possible to pay by credit card or by bank transfer. The remuneration for the ordered Service can be settled by credit card.
Payment via bank transfer: If the User chooses the bank transfer payment method, they must pay the due amount (the remuneration for the ordered Service) in advance.
Plantatree Nonprofit Ltd. charges the bank card used by the User at the time of ordering with the payable amount.
In the case of withdrawal (considering the provisions of the right of withdrawal), the amount will be credited to the User’s bank account used for payment as soon as possible. When choosing the credit card payment method, Plantatree Nonprofit Ltd. cannot make any modifications to the submitted orders after the fact!
