Carbon Bootcamp Program Terms
Effective May 16, 2019
Welcome to CrownTheCrowd, Inc.’s (“our”, “us” or “we”) Carbon Bootcamp Program (“Program”). We’re excited that you are thinking of joining us as we seek to empower individuals for massive collective impact on limiting climate change. Please read these Carbon Bootcamp Program Terms (“Terms”) carefully. These Terms govern your participation in the Program, including any additional products or services you may order. You accept and agree to be bound by these Terms when you join the Program, whether you do so by checking a box indicating your desire to sign up, texting JOIN to a specified number, or otherwise. If you do not agree to these Terms, you should not enroll in the Program.
1. Participation in the Program
The Program is intended solely for personal, non-commercial participation by adult residents of the United States, and participation in some or all aspects of the Program may be limited to specific geographic areas. You represent that you are at least 18 years of age (or whatever the applicable age of legal adulthood is where you are located) and that the information you provide us is accurate and complete. We reserve the right to require you to verify your age or other information you provide. You are permitted to have only one enrollment in the Program at a time.
3. Participation Period; Changes to Terms
Your enrollment in the Program will continue for one year, unless you or we terminate your participation in the Program before that time (“Participation Period”). If your participation is terminated before one year, you are not permitted to re-enroll in the Program.
These Terms are effective as of the effective date above, and the Terms in effect on the date of your enrollment in the Program will apply to you throughout your Participation Period. However, we may change these Terms from time to time. If you order additional products or services or extend your Participation Period after we make a change in these Terms, the Terms in effect at the time you take that action will apply to the new transaction.
4. Our Communications with You
A significant part of the Program consists of text messages sent to you at the telephone number that you provide us. You consent to receive non-marketing and marketing text messages from us and others texting on our behalf, including text messages made with an autodialer. If you provide us an email address, you also consent to receive email messages from us. Your carrier’s standard message and data rates apply.
You may opt out of these communications at any time by following the instructions provided in our communications. If you opt out of receiving text messages, you agree that you may receive a text message confirming your opt-out. If as part of the Program, you subscribe to multiple messaging features, opting out of one such feature will only opt you out of the specific feature involved. You will remain opted in to other features to which you have subscribed.
You acknowledge that delivery of messages may fail due to a variety of circumstances or conditions outside of our control, including failures of mobile network services or lapse of your mobile telephone service. We are not liable for non-delivery of messages.
You represent that you are the account holder for the mobile telephone number that you provide us. You agree to notify us immediately if you change your mobile telephone number. You may notify us of a number change by submitting a “contact us” form on our website.
5. Health and Safety
As part of the Program, we may suggest activities that you may choose to undertake to help reduce your carbon footprint. Some of these activities may pose risks or not be right for you. You engage in these activities at your own risk. To the extent that any of these activities may involve physical exertion, you should consult your physician before undertaking them. Doing so is particularly important if you are over age 35 or have any medical condition or injury that could be made worse by a change in physical activity. You should always take appropriate safety precautions and act with due care when engaging in any activity we may suggest. To the extent our suggestions may involve your use of home appliances or other third party products, you should always use such items in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions. To the extent we may offer any suggestion that seems inconsistent with the manufacturer’s instructions, you should not follow our suggestion. There is a possibility of injury, death or property damage when participating in any physical activity. We will not be liable for any injury, death, property damage or other liability of any kind resulting from activities you choose to undertake.
