The Subscription Service can be accessed either through a mobile application, available on both the Apple Store and Google Play (“mobile app”), or on the web app, available on www.planetimpactacademy.com (the “web app”). The Client is granted use of the mobile app and/or web app for the time period indicated in the subscription. The right of use of the mobile app and/or the web app would expire upon termination of the subscription.
The Customer’s login and password details will be provided via email. This shall be subject to verification of the email address associated with the Customer account.
2.1.1. On the web app and the mobile app, videos and illustrative and informative films are published in digital format, as well as teaching materials - including online courses and webinars - concerning ecological and environmental issues, as well as environmental awareness relating to climate change and education on ‘eco-friendly’ behaviors and training videos that solve problems or make everyday life easier, known as Life Hacks. The platform also provides the customer with an instant messaging service, through which the customer can interact and communicate with other users and members of the Subscription Service.
2.1.2. The Learning Management System (“LMS”) on the web app, as well as the mobile app, are set up, developed and managed by the Provider. The content of the mobile and web app are prepared, developed and updated by EAF, a Foundation set up under Swiss law with headquarters at Arifida Sa in Via G. Motta 18, 6830 Chiasso, Switzerland (hereinafter “EAF”). EAF has exclusive ownership of the intellectual property rights over this content, including copyright.

2.1.3. EAF, on the other hand, will use the proceeds of royalties for the purchasing of land or lots of lands, to protect them from logging, and/or to regenerate them through interventions of deforestation and/or reforestation, in line with the aims of EAF. In particular, EAF will allocate a portion of the land subject to regeneration for each subscription to the Subscription Service signed up to by the customers of the Provider, to provide evidence of the contribution made by signing the Subscription Service and avoiding any overlaps (so-called overlapping. The Customer shall not acquire any property rights, real rights and/or rights of enjoyment on the land acquired by EAF.
2.1.4. In order for the Customer to be able to follow the process of Earth Alliance Foundation’s land acquisition in terms of Article 1.2 above, the Provider shall make available, within sixty (60) days from the conclusion of the contract under Article 1.2, data showing all the land or lots acquired by Earth Alliance Foundation. The Provider shall also make available to the Customer the geo-location of the land or lots mentioned, and where possible, any relevant public deeds and official documents, photographic surveys. These shall be made available on the Customers’ on “www.earthalliancefoundation.com”.
2.1.5. EAF undertakes to combine the subscription to the Academy Service signed by the Customer with the geographical location of the portion of land in question within 60 (sixty) days from the date of payment of the order object of the Form, except for any delays in the aforementioned process due to causes of force majeure as indicated in Article 3.7.
2.1.6. The "master" register showing the combination of the geo-localized land portions is saved periodically in an "XML" file the content of which is validated by an algorithm called SHA2 which will result in a unique alphanumeric code (HASH KEY). This code allowing you to verify the XML file previously saved is not modified in any way.
The guarantee that the hash key is not changed in any way over time is given by the subsequent writing of the unique code (HASH KEY) inside the Ethereum blockchain through a Smart Contract, a procedure that usually takes place every hour.
2.1.7 Once the pairing of the portion of land as indicated above has been completed; the Client will receive a certificate from EAF in PDF format which can be downloaded by accessing the Customer's reserved area on www.earthalliancefoundation.com (“the EAF Website”). The Certificate identifies the geographical location, the coordinates, the name and URL of the backup XML file, its unique code (HASH KEY) and the address of the Ethereum contract where the same unique code (HASH KEY) is saved, and which cannot be modified. If the content of the XML file relating to the aforementioned master register backup differs in one or more records with respect to an XML backup of the previous mother registry, this can be attributed to the rectification of an order or a canceled order. The reason for this adjustment will be written in the master register and then saved again and validated with the XML backup and a new unique code (hash key).

The Service is provided ‘as is’ (“tale e quale”), meaning the Provider does not provide any guarantee on it, and, within the limits set by the mandatory regulatory provisions in terms of the Applicable Law, the Provider will not be liable for any direct, indirect damage and/or consequential (including damages from loss of profit, loss of information, damage to hardware, software, smartphone, tablet and/or PC) and/or loss of any kind resulting from the use (or incorrect use) of the Service and/or personal account as per Article 2.1.9.
