Suitability of Calyx services
The Customer warrants that it has satisfied itself that the information provided in any Calyx Project Report or the Calyx Ratings Service meets its requirements and that the Company is under no obligation to provide or obtain for the Customer any additional information.
The Customer acknowledges that the ratings and insights included in the Calyx Ratings Service and Calyx Project Reports are the result of applying the Company’s proprietary frameworks to publicly available and/or acquirable information. Human judgment is involved in the application of the Company’s frameworks; this may result in differing rating outcomes. The Customer also accepts that the quality and reliability of the assessment rating necessarily depend upon the quality and reliability of the data on which it is based and that the Company has limited opportunity to verify such data. The Company accepts no liability to the Customer for any loss, expense, liability or claim that the Customer may incur in connection with any rating assessment which is based upon erroneous data.
The information contained in a Calyx Project Report or in the Calyx Ratings Service does not constitute any form of advice or recommendation with respect to the relevant carbon project. A Company rating does not indicate that a particular carbon project is suitable for procurement or investment by the Customer or any other person and does not provide any forecast whatsoever as to a carbon project’s future performance. The Company does not accept any liability whatsoever for any loss, expense, cost or liability, howsoever arising from the Customer’s decision to procure credits from, participate in, invest in or in any manner take financial exposure with respect to any carbon project which has been rated by the Company.
The Company owns or is the licensee of all the intellectual property rights with respect to (i) the content of the Company website, including the Calyx Ratings Service; and (ii) the content of each Calyx Project Report, whether or not such report is prepared exclusively for a Customer. Nothing in the Agreement shall be interpreted as granting or transferring ownership in any intellectual property rights with respect to such materials to the Customer. These materials are protected by copyright laws and treaties around the world. All such rights are reserved.
The Customer’s permitted access to, and use of, such materials is governed by the license terms set out in the paragraph “License terms”.
Subject to the applicable license terms, the Company and the Customer agree not to disclose to any 3rd party the existence and terms of the Agreement, save to the extent that such disclosure is strictly required by applicable law in which case the disclosing party shall notify the other party as soon as possible prior to making the disclosure.
The agreement is governed by the laws of the State of New York save for any conflict of laws provisions which would otherwise provide for a different law to apply.
To the maximum extent permitted by law, any dispute, controversy or claim arising out of or relating to the Agreement, including the formation, interpretation, breach or termination thereof, including whether the claims asserted are arbitrable, will be referred to and finally determined by arbitration in accordance with the JAMS International Arbitration Rules. The tribunal will consist of three arbitrators. Within 15 days after the commencement of arbitration, each party shall select one person to act as arbitrator, and the two so selected shall select a third arbitrator within 30 days of the commencement of the arbitration. If the arbitrators selected by the parties are unable or fail to agree upon the third arbitrator within the allotted time, the third arbitrator shall be appointed by JAMS in accordance with its rules. All arbitrators shall serve as neutral, independent and impartial arbitrators. The seat of the arbitration will be Denver, CO. The language to be used in the arbitral proceedings will be English. Judgment upon the award rendered by the arbitrator(s) may be entered by any court having jurisdiction thereof. The Company and the Customer agreed to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the federal and state courts of New York with respect to any matter which is prohibited from resolution by arbitration in accordance with this clause by reason of applicable law. The Company and the Customer each hereby waive, to the maximum extent permitted by law, any objection, including any objection based on forum non conveniens, to the bringing of any such proceeding in such jurisdictions. In respect of any proceedings before the state courts of New York, the Company and the Customer both waive any right to jury trial.
If any provision of the Agreement is, or becomes, unenforceable, illegal or invalid for any reason, the relevant provision is deemed to be varied to the extent necessary to remedy the unenforceability, illegality or invalidity. If variation is not possible, the provision must be treated as severed from the Agreement without affecting any other provisions of the Agreement.
