  1. Access to the Platform

Agreed Earth will provide you with access to the Platform to the best of its ability and in accordance with all applicable laws and regulations. You are under no obligation to use the Platform and may stop using it at any time. Your limited licence to access the Platform is dependent on your compliance with these terms and conditions, and may be varied, suspended or terminated at any time at Agreed Earth’s sole discretion. The Platform and all content available through it is owned or licensed by Agreed Earth, and may not be copied, reproduced or otherwise used without Agreed Earth’s express written permission.

You confirm that all information you provide to Agreed Earth or through the Platform is accurate, up-to-date, and complete to the best of your knowledge, and that it does not infringe on any third party rights or any applicable laws. 

You must notify Agreed Earth immediately if any information you have provided to it changes. Agreed Earth does not assume any liability for issues arising as a result of incorrect, out-of-date, or incomplete information provided by you.

You hereby grant to Agreed Earth an irrevocable, royalty-free, worldwide, assignable, sub-licensable licence to use any information, data, and material which you submit to us or the Platform for the purpose of use on the Platform or otherwise for use by Agreed Earth in the course of its business.

  1. Connecting with other users on the Platform

Farmers may use the Platform to find other farmers and suppliers of farming products and services based on location and areas of specialisms and expertise.

Suppliers of farming products and services may use the Platform to promote their areas of industry specialisms and expertise to be identified by farmers. 

The Platform is used to facilitate introductions between farmers and suppliers, and to permit conversations between them.

Agreed Earth does not guarantee that any supplier will be available to meet any farmer’s specific requirements. Agreed Earth makes reasonable efforts to vet the suppliers that are listed on the Platform, but cannot guarantee the suitability of any supplier or their products or services. Agreed Earth does not guarantee the quality, accuracy, and timeliness of any supplier’s products or services. Agreed Earth does not direct and has no control over delivery of any supplier’s services. Agreed Earth does not review, endorse, or sanction statements communicated through the Platform by any farmer or supplier. Agreed Earth encourages farmers to independently research any supplier before engaging them to provide products or services, and to verify information obtained from other farmers before implementing it in their own farming practices.

Agreed Earth reserves the right to remove the listing of and any data relating to specific farmers or suppliers from the Platform at any time at its sole discretion, for reasons including notification of a claim of infringement of third party Intellectual Property Rights, or any breach of these terms and conditions.

Agreed Earth has no authority to enter into any agreement between a farmer and a supplier. You acknowledge that Agreed Earth and the Platform operate solely to provide a network through which farmers and suppliers can discuss good farming practices and farming solutions. Agreed Earth is not a party to any contract between a farmer and a supplier and will not have any liability or obligation to you whatsoever in relation to any such engagement, including for any deficiency in services provided by suppliers, or failures by farmers to pay any agreed sums.

Farmers and suppliers are responsible for negotiating the terms of any agreements they may choose to enter into, and for documenting that agreement to their own satisfaction.

You affirm and agree that you are not specifically relying on any statements, or materials contained on the Platform or otherwise made available by Agreed Earth to make any business decisions.

Agreed Earth may make available on the Platform certain maps, agricultural data, and related information services, learning materials, and curated lists of third party books, videos and podcasts. The Platform and all content available through it is provided “as is” and Agreed Earth does not warrant that all errors or defects can be corrected, or that provision and operation of the Platform shall be uninterrupted or error-free. 

We accept no liability for third party content linked to from the Platform, which is provided in good faith. You should always conduct your own due diligence before making any decisions based on content obtained through the Platform.

Except as expressly set forth in these terms and conditions, Agreed Earth makes no representations or warranties, express or implied, with regard to the Platform, or any activities or items related to these terms.
