Terms & Conditions

What’s covered in these terms

These Terms and Conditions (“Agreement”) set out what you can expect from us as you use the Farm Carbon Toolkit (FCT) website and our services, and what we expect from you.

Please note that the Farm Carbon Calculator software is subject to a separate set of Terms & Conditions which are available here: https://calculator.farmcarbontoolkit.org.uk/terms-conditions

This agreement reflects the way that FCT works and the laws that apply to our organisation. As a result, this Agreement helps define our relationship with you as you interact with our services. For example, it includes the following topics:

  • What you can expect from us, which describes how we provide and develop our website, which includes the online toolkit, but excludes the Farm Carbon Calculator software which are subject to a separate set of Terms
  • What we expect from you, which establishes certain rules for using our services
  • In case of problems or disagreements, what legal rights you have and what to expect if you violate this Agreement.

Understanding this Agreement is important because, to use our services, you must accept this Agreement. 

Besides this Agreement, we also publish a Privacy Policy. Although it’s not part of this Agreement, we encourage you to read this to better understand how you can update, manage, export and delete any information we might store about you.
