("Veriport" and "We", "Us" and "Our" shall refer to Veriport Ltd ).
Your organisation (the "Licensee") concludes an agreement with Veriport, which includes the right for individual representative/s of the Licensee to be users of the Services.
Your agreement with Veriport is concluded upon registration as a user, through the Website, or through the exchange of signed documents, and is applicable until termination of your user account.
By accessing the Website, you agree to abide by these Terms of Service and to comply with all applicable laws and regulations. If you do not agree with these Terms of Service, you are prohibited from using or accessing the Website or using any other services provided by Veriport.
We reserve the right to review and amend any of these Terms of Service at our sole discretion. It is your responsibility to review these terms regularly.

Trial accounts, demo accounts
If you have been provided with trial access or a demo account, by using the Website, you acknowledge and accept that:
your use of the Website and any of its associated Services is for trial purposes only, and within the parameters of a "demo" account that has been set up for the trial;
access to the Website is limited in a timely manner as specified by us when providing the demo account login credentials to you;
during the trial phase access to the Website may be restricted and its associated Services may be limited in comparison to the full access granted to users under full license and that you have no claim to the same rights as such users;
after the trial phase has expired unless your account has been converted into a fully licensed user account any associated data may be deleted so that it cannot be restored later.
The Services and their original content (excluding content provided by users), features and functionality are and will remain the exclusive property of Veriport, and any third-party licensors, as applicable. The Services are or may be protected by copyright, trademark, and other laws of foreign countries (the "Protected Content"). Our Protected Content may not be used in connection with any product or service without the prior written consent of Veriport.
To the extent necessary for using the Services, we hereby grant to any User who registers a user account a non-exclusive, non-transferrable, non-sublicensable right to use the Protected Content for non-commercial purposes subject to the Terms. This license will automatically cease if the user account is terminated or otherwise cease to exist.
Nothing in the Terms shall authorize a user to
distribute or make available Protected Content to third parties;
lease or transfer the Website or its content or any other Protected Content to third parties; or
use any Protected Content outside the context of the Services.
The Services may include links to content or services of third-party providers. In some cases, content made available by third parties may be shown or the Services may enable you to use additional services of third parties. We strive to design our applications in such a way that this will be readily apparent to you. All content and/or services of third-party providers are subject to the applicable terms, conditions, and policies of such third-party providers. We hereby expressly disclaim any responsibility or liability for content or services of any third parties. You are personally responsible for making sure that you do not violate the terms and conditions of such third-party providers.
You retain your intellectual property ownership rights over content you submit to us for publication on the Website, subject to these Terms of Service, and subject to any agreements that you may have with the Licensee. We will never claim ownership of your content but we do require a license from you in order to use it.
The license you grant us can be terminated at any time by deleting your content or account. However, to the extent that we (or our partners) have used your content in connection with commercial or sponsored content, the license will continue until the relevant commercial or post has been discontinued by us.
Reports Generated by Users on the Website
The Services include the offering of various reporting templates which guide users towards the development of sustainability, carbon, integrated and other industry reports. Individual report template licenses are purchased by the Licensee within our commercial packages, and the Licensee grants you access to these report templates subject to the terms of the Licensee's agreement with us.
Instructions and guidelines are included on the Website. We may adjust or update the offering and the instructions from time to time, and we cannot be held responsible for any inconvenience that this may cause users or the Licensee. We will give notice of any updates in this regard on the Website and via the user account correspondence email address.
Information and data that you enter into the Website is done so on behalf of the Licensee. By entering this information/data you (i) agree to be bound by the Terms and (ii) represent that you are duly authorized by the Licensee to use the Website. Please note that in addition to these Terms, further terms in the Licensee's agreement with us may apply.
Each report template license is limited to a 12-month license period, and whilst various versions of a report may be compiled, the license may not be used to compile any reports or versions of the report that are outside of the license period. To do this, the Licensee must purchase additional license/s for the additional reporting period/s. If you are in any doubt, please contact the Licensee.
The Website may provide users with information relating to third party reporting standards, guidelines or frameworks ("Frameworks"), some of whom will require third-party affiliation fees, which we will communicate, if applicable. We may recommend the use of these Frameworks but do not warrant that by using or referencing them in the context of the Website you have complied with the Frameworks or have in any official way contracted or associated with the Frameworks or the organisations that own or operate them. The Frameworks featured on the Website are referenced by you and/or on behalf of the Licensee on condition that you are responsible for making any claims relating to the use of the Frameworks in any report that you compile via the Website. We will always attempt to provide users with recommendations regarding claims that can and should be made in this regard.
The Service may be linked to participation or references to third party affiliates ("Affiliates)" that have contracted with Veriport to participate in the Services offering in some way. Further terms and conditions relating to Affiliates and the Services related to Affiliates may apply.
You are responsible for maintaining original source/back-up copies of data/information entered or uploaded into the Software and for downloading/printing Excel and PDF data/information from the Software, as applicable, for backup purposes.
The Website offers the Licensee various carbon footprint calculation features. For calculating carbon footprints, we use scientific best-practice-aligned methods and a variety of data. The specific calculation formula is our trade secret and may change or be adapted at any time.
The accuracy of any carbon footprint calculation is linked to the accuracy of the primary input data and various other factors that may be out of our control. By using our carbon calculator you expressly acknowledge and accept (i) that the result will be a best approximation, (ii) that we expressly cannot and do not guarantee that the calculated carbon footprint corresponds to your actual carbon footprint and (iii) to the extent the calculation yields your carbon footprint over a time period partly in the future, e.g. over a year, that the calculated carbon footprint is necessarily a prediction about the future and as such necessarily an estimate or forecast.
We may offer you the option of offsetting your carbon footprint via a third-party carbon-offset trading partner company ("Offset Partner") and not by Veriport directly. Veriport is not liable for any issues arising from any agreements or transactions undertaken by you and any Offset Partner in this respect.

This is to ensure up-to-date security and to maximise usability of the Website. As the Website is a continuously updated system, requirements may change with it.

In some countries, such as in the member states of the European Union, the Licensee or a user may have a revocation right, subject to various conditions, which may by extension have consequences to your rights as the user. The Licensee is responsible for checking revocation rights and communication with you about a) your access to the Services and b) your account.
We reserve the right to transfer our rights and obligations under the Terms to any subsidiary, affiliate or successor. Any such transfer will not affect the availability of the Services to you or the operation of the Website. We will always inform you before we transfer any obligations under the Terms.
Waiver and Severability
No waiver by Veriport of any term or condition set forth in these Terms shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or condition or a waiver of any other term or condition, and any failure of Veriport to assert a right or provision under the Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.
Should any provision of these Terms be or become, either in whole or on part, void, ineffective or unenforceable, the remaining provisions will remain unaffected thereby. The same applies in case of unintentional gaps in these Terms.
These Terms of Service are governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of United Kingdom. You submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts in that State or location.
Jurisdiction and Dispute Resolution
