Using the Less website
This website and all of its contents have been produced by and are the property of Less Emissions Inc. ("Less."). The Less logo and its corporate identifiers remain the property of Less Emissions Inc. and may only be used under license.
Less endeavours to base its emissions calculations on the most up-to-date emissions intensity factors published by reputable sources. These emissions intensity factors can and do change over time. If new information is published, Less will not assume responsibility to alter its emissions reductions liability for calculations that it has done in the past.
Less takes no responsibility for any errors and omissions made by Purchasers when entering their data into Less web calculators. When a Purchaser makes a payment to offset his or her CO2e emissions, Less will add those CO2e emissions to its liabilities and will retire those emissions to the environment on the client's behalf. On completion of purchase, the Purchaser will receive a confirmation, sent by email, to demonstrate that the emissions reductions are being retired to the environment on their behalf. The Purchaser will not receive title to the emissions reductions achieved by any emissions reduction projects drawn upon by Less. Less will not sell any emissions reductions to more than one party.
At Less, we care about the protection of your personal information. For the purposes of communicating with you and servicing you effectively, from time to time we will need to collect some personal information for our records that you willingly enter on our website. We only collect such information with your permission, and we will explain the intended use. We retain this information for as long as we deem necessary based on the reason you provided it. We will not use or disclose your personal information for anything other than the stated purposes, except with your consent or as required by law.
We take appropriate measures to ensure that your personal data is secure, including preventing it from being accidentally lost or used or accessed in an unauthorized way. We limit access to your personal data to those who have a legitimate business need to view it.
Less is committed to retaining the confidentiality of its customers and does not trade or sell personal information to third parties. Where we have websites that are co-branded with a partner organization, we may in some circumstances be required to share information on the identity of parties making a purchase with the partner organization. If this is the case, you will be asked separately whether you wish to receive further communications from that partner.
Occasionally, we may need to disclose personal information to third parties for the purpose of billing or market operation; law enforcement; to comply with a statute or an order of a court or tribunal; when past due accounts of the consumer have been passed to a debt collection agency; or to comply with market rules.
We may also share personal information with some of our partners for marketing purposes related to our products or to bring complementary offerings or information to your attention. If you wish to be removed from these marketing communications, you can unsubscribe at any time through the unsubscribe mechanism provided in such communications, or by emailing us through our contact page.
