Terms and Conditions
Welcome to SinkOffsets.com! This website is owned and operated by Sink Offsets FZ-LLC (hereinafter referred to as “SINK”). These Terms set forth the terms and conditions under which you may use our website and services as offered by us.
SINK funds projects with the aim of making reductions or removals of CO2 and other greenhouse gases (GHG) in order to mitigate the impact of climate change. SINK offers you (the Purchaser) the opportunity to contribute towards emission reductions by entering into a purchase agreement with SINK to provide services to offset the emissions using the information that you have provided. You understand that by entering into this agreement, you are delivering a purchase order to SINK. Purchases on SINK may be made as subscription purchases with monthly recurring payments, or as one-time purchases with individual payments. Upon receipt of the full payment, SINK undertakes to offset the amount of CO2 emissions specified in the online purchase receipt and subject to this agreement. This offset will be accomplished by SINK financing CO2 offset projects, to purchase and retire the associated carbon emission reduction credits generated by those projects into the appropriate public registry. You acknowledge and agree that SINK has no obligation to allocate any emission reduction credits to you until it has received full payment. The Parties agree and acknowledge that the emission reduction credits to be allocated in respect of the GHG emissions to be offset shall be allocated from the SINK’s mixed Projects Protfolio, and the allocation distribution between the various projects is at the sole discretion of SINK. Details of the current SINK Projects Portfolio are available online and can be viewed via https://www.sinkoffsets.com/projects-portfolio/. The projects within this Portfolio are updated from time to time. Following receipt of payment, and upon your request, SINK can provide a non-transferable certificate, sent by email, to demonstrate that the emissions will be offset. The certificate does not evince carbon neutrality or anything other than that retirement of the specified number of carbon emission reduction credits will be conducted on your behalf. You will not receive title to any of the carbon emission reduction credits achieved by any of SINK’s emission reduction projects. SINK undertakes not to offset a given carbon emissions reduction credit for more than one party or to sell a carbon emission reduction credit to more than one party.
