Our purpose is to start a paradigm change! The world needs standing forests not only for environmental reasons but also economic ones. Through the use of state-of-the-art technology Reforestree™ will provide a platform that plays a substantial role in changing the economic perception by being the link between consumers and forest-land owners. The first step in achieving this goal is to give you the means, whether you are a person or a business, to have a positive and traceable impact in the preservation and development of forest lands.
It is known that standing forests not only benefit the environment, but also have great economic value. Forests provides several mechanisms and processes that preserve and enrich natural resources. Forests can provide wood, and other related resources. They prevent soil erosion, protect and regenerate water sources, wildlife and communities that live in the region. They also provide an abundance of genetic material. People and businesses can benefit directly and indirectly from the preserved forests. We chose the Amazon as our starting point for this new project because there is a pressing need to reverse deforestation.

SANCTIONS FOR VIOLATIONS OF THESE TERMS
ACCOUNT SUSPENSION OR TERMINATION
You and Reforestree agree that these Terms affect interstate commerce and that the Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of these arbitration provisions.
This Section is intended to be interpreted broadly and governs any and all disputes between us, including but not limited to claims arising out of or relating to any aspect of the relationship between us, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation or any other legal theory; claims that arose before this Agreement or any prior agreement (including, but not limited to, claims related to advertising); and claims that may arise after the termination of this Agreement. The only disputes excluded from this broad prohibition are the litigation of certain intellectual property and small court claims, as provided below.
Initial Dispute Resolution: Most disputes can be resolved without resort to litigation. You can reach Reforestree’s support department at [email protected] Except for intellectual property and small claims court claims, the parties agree to use their best efforts to settle any dispute, claim, question, or disagreement directly through consultation with the Reforestree support department, and good faith negotiations shall be a condition to either party initiating a lawsuit or arbitration.
Where the relief sought is $10,000 or less and you do not wish to bring the claim in small claims court, the arbitration will be conducted online by an online arbitration provider of our choosing in accordance with their applicable Arbitration Rules & Procedures effective at the time a claim is made. Currently, to start, you may initiate arbitration proceedings on the FairClaims website. You are responsible for your own attorneys’ fees unless the arbitration rules and/or applicable law provide otherwise.
The parties understand that, absent this mandatory arbitration provision, they would have the right to sue in court and have a jury trial. They further understand that, in some instances, the costs of arbitration could exceed the costs of litigation and the right to discovery may be more limited in arbitration than in court.
If you are a resident of the United States, arbitration may take place in the county where you reside at the time of filing. For individuals residing outside the United States, arbitration shall be initiated in the State of Utah, United States of America. You and Reforestree further agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of any federal or state court in Salt Lake County, Utah in order to compel arbitration, to stay proceedings pending arbitration, or to confirm, modify, vacate, or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator.
Class Action Waiver: The parties further agree that the arbitration shall be conducted in their individual capacities only and not as a class action or other representative action, and the parties expressly waive their right to file a class action or seek relief on a class basis. YOU AND REFORESTREE AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. If any court or arbitrator determines that the class action waiver set forth in this paragraph is void or unenforceable for any reason or that an arbitration can proceed on a class basis, then the arbitration provisions set forth above shall be deemed null and void in their entirety and the parties shall be deemed to have not agreed to arbitrate disputes.
Exception: Litigation of Intellectual Property and Small Claims Court Claims: Notwithstanding the parties’ decision to resolve all disputes through arbitration, either party may bring enforcement actions, validity determinations or claims arising from or relating to theft, piracy or unauthorized use of intellectual property in state or federal court or in the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office to protect its intellectual property rights (“intellectual property rights” means patents, copyrights, moral rights, trademarks, and trade secrets, but not privacy or publicity rights). Either party may also seek relief in a small claims court for disputes or claims within the scope of that court’s jurisdiction.
30-Day Right to Opt Out: You have the right to opt out and not be bound by the arbitration and class action waiver provisions set forth above by sending (from the email address you use on Reforestree) written notice of your decision to opt out to [email protected] with the subject line, “ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER OPT-OUT.” The notice must be sent within thirty (30) days of the later of the Effective Date of these Terms or your first use of the Platform; otherwise, you shall be bound to arbitrate disputes in accordance with the terms of those paragraphs. If you opt out of these arbitration provisions, Reforestree also will not be bound by them.
Changes to this section will otherwise apply prospectively only to claims arising after the thirtieth (30th) day. If a court or arbitrator decides that this subsection on “Changes to This Section” is not enforceable or valid, then this subsection shall be severed from the section entitled “Arbitration and Class Action Waiver,” and the court or arbitrator shall apply the first Arbitration and Class Action Waiver section in existence after you began using the Platform.
Survival: This Arbitration and Class Action Waiver section shall survive any termination of your Account or the Platform.
The Terms and the relationship between you and Reforestree shall be governed in all respects by the laws of the State of Utah, without regard to its conflict of law provisions. You agree that any claim or dispute you may have against Reforestree that is not subject to arbitration must be resolved by a court located in Salt Lake County, Utah, or a United States District Court, District Court of Utah, located in Utah, except as otherwise agreed by the parties. You agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the courts located within Salt Lake County, Utah or the United States District Court, District of Utah located in Salt Lake City, Utah, for the purpose of litigating all such claims or disputes that are not subject to arbitration. You hereby waive any and all jurisdictional and venue defenses otherwise available.
We specifically disclaim all liability for any actions resulting from your use of any App, service or Software. You may use and access the Services or Software at your own discretion and risk, and you are solely responsible for any damage to your computer system or loss of data that results from the use of and access to any Service or Software.
The number of trees, individuals and wildlife is always approximate, based on studies of the area where the project is located. Therefore MyForest is always related to an area of land equivalent to 5,381 ft², and within that area there are an approximate number of standing trees and other individuals or seedlings to be planted.
Carbon Credits offered in favor of Reforesters (users) will be retired by Reforestree, Inc. However, Reforestree will not benefit from retired carbon credits for its own emissions, as they will be retired in favor of Reforesters, even if they are not directly used by them to offset, to neutralize users’ carbon footprint.
The Reforestree reforestation method is by “natural regeneration” allied with nucleation of some spots, with the minimum amount of native species (at least 20 species per hectare).
