GreenButton Terms and Conditions

Privacy: Your privacy is paramount. We won't share your personal data with any other company, and we'll only contact you directly about your jobs, your account, or changes at GreenButton that might affect you directly. We encourage you to subscribe to our blog and email updates so we can keep you informed about new features, services and infrastructure as they come online. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your username(s), password(s) as well as all activities that occur under your account(s).

Intellectual Property: We either own, or are licensed to use, the intellectual property rights in the Services provided to you, including all copyright, trade mark and design rights relating to the Services, and any software used in providing the Services (‘GreenButton Software’). Your use of the Services does not confer on you any ownership rights in these intellectual property rights. GreenButton may change the GreenButton Software, or delete, modify or add to its features at any time. The GreenButton Software may not be used, reproduced, transmitted, distributed or exploited in any way other than as part of the GreenButton Service. Your rights to use the Greenbutton Software will terminate automatically without notice from GreenButton if you fail to comply with these Terms of Use.

Confidentiality: Both Parties must always keep Confidential Information confidential and may not copy it, or use it for any purpose other than that for which it was provided, except with the other party's written consent.

Security: GreenButton Limited is committed to protecting the security of your information. We maintain technical and organisational measures designed to provide and enable security for the Service. This includes a variety of security technologies and procedures to help protect your information from unauthorised access, use, or disclosure. For example, we store the information you provide on computer systems with limited access, which are located in controlled facilities. Some personal information may be particularly sensitive to you or your organisation, and hence may require a level of security that we do not provide. You or your organisation is responsible for determining whether our security meets your requirements. For more information, please see our Security Overview. If you have specific questions, please contact help@greenbutton.net

Ending Services: We may cease providing all or part of any Service if the Service is no longer viable, is to be withdrawn from general availability by us, cannot be provided, or is to be replaced with a new Service.

Continuing Rights & Responsibilities: The ending of the Agreement does not affect any rights and responsibilities under the Agreement which are intended to continue, or come into force after the Agreement ends.

Warranties Excluded: Not withstanding anything to the contrary in this agreement, all warranties, representations or conditions relating to the Services and the Platform (whether express, implied or whenever arising) whether originating in statute, law, trade, custom, or otherwise that would (but for this clause) apply, are expressly excluded to the fullest extent permitted by law. You are responsible for the correct, proper and safe use of the Services and Platform and you indemnify us against any claim, loss, damage or cost arising from your use of the Services and Platform. You agree to maintain suitable insurances to cover any such claims.

Limit of Liability: IN NO EVENT SHALL GREENBUTTON OR ANYONE ELSE INVOLVED IN THE CREATION, PRODUCTION, DELIVERY OR LICENSING OF THE GREENBUTTON SOFTWARE OR SERVICE BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR ANY CONSEQUENTIAL, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, OR INDIRECT DAMAGES OF ANY KIND, INCLUDING LOST PROFITS, ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THE USE OF, OR INABILITY TO USE, THE GREENBUTTON SOFTWARE OR SERVICE, EVEN IF GREENBUTTON OR ANYONE ELSE INVOLVED IN THE CREATION, PRODUCTION, DELIVERY, OR LICENSING OF THE GREENBUTTON SOFTWARE OR SERVICE HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. IN NO EVENT WILL GREENBUTTON'S TOTAL LIABILITY TO YOU FOR ALL DAMAGES, LOSSES AND CAUSES OF ACTION WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE) OR OTHERWISE EXCEED THE LESSER OF (i) THAT AMOUNT PAID BY YOU FOR THE GREENBUTTON SERVICE DURING THE SIX (6)-MONTH PERIOD PRECEDING THE DATE OF YOUR CLAIM OR (ii) ONE THOUSAND ($1,000) U.S. DOLLARS.

Liability Accepted By You: You accept liability to us for failure to meet any payment obligation and for expenses actually and reasonably incurred by us or anyone else (including in enforcing our rights or anyone else's rights) as a direct result of your material breach of the Agreement or failure to take reasonable care.

Consumer Guarantees Act: You confirm that you are acquiring all the Services and Equipment for the purposes of a business as defined in the Consumer Guarantees Act 1993 of New Zealand. The provisions of that Act do not apply to Services we provide under the Agreement.

Governing Law: The Agreement is governed by, and will be construed in accordance with, the laws of New Zealand. Both Parties submit to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the NZ courts.

No Waiver: No failure, delay or indulgence by either party in exercising any power or right conferred on that party by the Agreement will operate as a waiver of that power or right. A single exercise of any of those powers or rights does not preclude further exercises of those powers or rights or the exercise of any other powers or rights under the Agreement.

No Responsibility For Tax Treatment: You acknowledge that you have not relied on any information from anyone at GreenButton Ltd concerning the tax treatment of any payments under the Agreement, or any other matter relating to tax in relation to the Agreement, the Services or Equipment, and that you are responsible for determining the correct tax treatment of these matters.
