The following Terms of Service define the legal framework for the use of the Myplan8 website (myplan8.earth), the Myplan8 app, and the other services we provide to our users.
Please read these Terms of Service carefully.
1.1 Contract partners and contract subject matter. These Terms of Service provide the basis for the user agreement resulting between you and us, KRNY Innovations Pvt. Ltd., Mumbai, India (hereinafter referred to as “Us” or “We”). The contract subject matter is the use, free of charge, of the services offered by Us on the website Myplan8.com (the “Myplan8 Website”) or via the Myplan8 mobile applications (the “Myplan8 App”) and the purchase of CO2e emission reduction quotas that We retire on your behalf, as well as other services that may be referenced in these Terms of Service (the “Myplan8 Services”).
1.2 Additional Terms and Conditions. We reserve the right to make certain Myplan8 Services subject to additional terms and conditions. We will notify you before using such additional terms and conditions.
The Myplan8 Services We provide involve the following:
2.1 Myplan8 App. You can download and use the Myplan8 App for free. Using the Myplan8 App, all users can calculate their personal carbon footprints. You can also use the Myplan8 App to purchase carbon offsets, attain a green score, green money card and green credits.
When downloading and using the Myplan8 App, especially in third-party networks or abroad, you may incur transmission charges from your Internet service provider.
We make every effort to ensure the trouble-free operation of the Myplan8 Services and to make them available 24/7 to the extent possible. However, We would like to point out that full or uninterrupted availability is not technically feasible and We, therefore, do not guarantee trouble-free operation or any particular availability.
2.2 Myplan8 Website. We also offer you the Myplan8 Website, which provides information about the topics of climate and emissions reduction and about our Myplan8 Services. Some of the other Myplan8 Services (such as calculating the carbon footprint) can also be used on the Myplan8 Website. Where applicable, the terms and conditions for using the various Myplan8 Services also apply to their use on the Myplan8 Website.
2.3 Calculation of carbon footprint. We enable our users to calculate their personal annual CO2e emissions, the so-called carbon footprint, free of charge. For this purpose, We make available a questionnaire in the Myplan8 App or on the Myplan8 Website. The questionnaire allows users to input information about their personal lifestyle (e.g. number of family members, number of flights). The method used to calculate the carbon footprint is backed by science, but the calculated carbon footprint is only an approximate value because the exact carbon footprint depends on all of a user’s actions and only a limited amount of information about each user is available to Us. It is also necessarily an estimate because the carbon footprint is a prediction about the future and the carbon footprint is calculated for an entire year. Therefore, the calculation is made without any guarantee that your actual carbon footprint will correspond to your calculated carbon footprint. The method of calculation may be adjusted from time to time, for example, because further findings are incorporated into the calculation methodology or because social conditions influencing your personal carbon footprint have changed.
2.4 Carbon offsets. We want to make it easy for our users to offset their personal carbon footprint. One effective way to do so is to purchase and retire CO2e emission reductions (the “Emission Reduction”). For many users, however, the effort involved is cumbersome. This is where our paid Carbon Offset Program comes in (the “Carbon Offset Program”).
We purchase Emission Reductions from selected climate protection projects and retire them on behalf of our users. The climate protection projects we select meet our quality requirements. This process is also called “offsetting”. In this context, “retiring” means that a retired Emission Reduction can no longer be traded. It is thereby realized. Emission Reductions are traded in units of one metric ton. Myplan8 makes it possible to offset smaller units, too: Users do not receive emission reduction certificates directly, but rather acquire an individual quota of a total number, which We allocate to our users and which is non-transferrable (the “Emission Reduction Quota”). We bundle the many different Emission Reductions and retire the total number at regular intervals, but at least once a quarter (overall the “compensation performance”).
When you start your Carbon Offset Program, you can decide what percentage of your carbon footprint you want to offset. This determines the price you pay for your individual carbon offset. Because the market cost of Emissions Reductions can change over time and we want to keep your price stable, we may need to adjust the compensation performance to reflect changes in market costs. We will inform you about this beforehand. In this case, your price will not change, but the amount of Emission Reductions we buy for you will increase or decrease, and so will the percentage of your CO2e footprint you offset. You can then decide for yourself whether you want to offset a higher or lower percentage again. Only then will the price for your individual Carbon Offset Program increase or decrease accordingly.
2.5 Green Credit. A percentage of carbon offset investment will be returned as 100% guaranteed gratification in form of green credits. The green credits are backed by original exchangeable and tradable carbon credits which are distributed as fractional units to the subscribed users. The credit is verified by UCR as the verification body and registered and linked with the London carbon exchange. Myplan8 will offer to buy back the credit post attaining a defined value. The buyback price will be as per -1 day of the exchange.
2.6 News. As part of the carbon offsetting process, our users receive news about topics such as climate change in general, specific climate protection projects, and a climate-friendly lifestyle, in particular tips on how to reduce your carbon emissions and thus lower your offset costs. This information may contain links to third-party content.
2.7 Changes to the Myplan8 Services. We reserve the right to change our business model at any time, e.g., to provide certain Myplan8 Services only in exchange for payment.
3. Conditions of Participation. To open a user account and to use the Myplan8 Services you must be at least 18 years old and have full legal capacity.
By entering into a contract with Us you represent that you have no other user account with Us and that your user account has not been suspended or cancelled in the past due to violations of our Terms of Service. In such cases, We will not enter into another or new user agreement with you. You also represent that all information provided by you during the registration process is true and complete.
4.1 Use without a user account. You may use the Myplan8 App or the Myplan8 Website to collect information without a user account and, for example, to calculate your carbon footprint. These Terms of Service also apply to this type of use, to the extent that they are applicable.
You can either register and log in with your email address and a password or use your Facebook login, your Google account, or the “Login with Apple” feature.
How the user agreement is concluded depends on how you log in for the first time and whether you also participate in our Carbon Offset Program.
4.3 Registration via mobile Myplan8 App. If you wish to register via the Myplan8 App, the conclusion of the user agreement will depend on the rules of the app store provider. As a general rule, a user agreement will result as soon as you click on the install button in the app store and enter your password or confirm installation with your fingerprint or Face ID. In order to use the Myplan8 Services, you will still need to create a user account via the Myplan8 App.
4.4 Registration via the Myplan8 Website. If you register on the Myplan8 Website, a user agreement between you and Us will result after you have completed the registration process.
4.5 Conclusion of an agreement for paid carbon offsets. By participating in our Carbon Offset Program, you can purchase Emission Reduction Quotas. If you participate in our Carbon Program using the Myplan8 App or the Myplan8 Website, an agreement will result when you click on “Buy Now”, “Pay to Offset” or a comparable button and have successfully entered your payment information.
4.6. Correction of input errors. If you want to participate in our Carbon Offset Program using your Myplan8 App, you can cancel the registration process at any time in the App. You can also cancel the registration process at any time if you wish to participate in our Carbon Offset Program via the Myplan8 Website. You will be able to correct any input errors until you have successfully entered your payment details.
You can either correct your payment information as you enter it, or you can use the options made available by Apple Pay, Google Pay, or Stripe.
5. Rights and obligations of the user. The Myplan8 Services are offered exclusively to consumers. This means you may not use the Myplan8 Services for business or other commercial purposes.
You may not allow any third parties to use your user account, and you are not permitted to
make accessible or transfer to any third parties access data transmitted or used for authentication or identification purposes;
circumvent any access control systems for paid services or take any other action to use services without authorization;
introduce into our IT systems any viruses, worms, Trojan horses, or other malware that may jeopardize or impair the functionality of the Myplan8 Services;

6.1 User agreement for use of Myplan8 Website and Myplan8 App. The agreement concluded between you and Us concerning the use of the Myplan8 Website and the Myplan8 App when you open a user account will be valid for an indefinite time period. It will end when you delete the Myplan8 App and terminate your user account.
6.2 Carbon Offset Program. We offer different terms for our Carbon Offset Program. Not all term options are available in every country. The term options displayed to you will be applicable in each case. If no explicit terms are shown to you, the contract is concluded for an indefinite period of time. Our Carbon Offset Program is not a so-called in-app purchase. If you want to cancel, you can simply use the appropriate function in the menu of the Myplan8 App or, if applicable, in your personal user account on the Myplan8 Website.
6.3 Billing period. For paid services (such as the Carbon Offset Program), you pay in advance for the defined billing period. The billing periods that are displayed within the Myplan8 app (or on the Myplan8 website) apply when you book the paid service. If no other billing period is displayed, you will be billed monthly on the due date on which you started your participation in the paid service.
7.1 Carbon Offset Program. You may terminate your participation in the Carbon Offset Program at any time for any or no reason, effective as of the end of the current billing period. To do so, you can simply use the appropriate function in the menu of the Myplan8 App or, if applicable, in your personal user account on the Myplan8 Website.
Please note that deleting the Myplan8 App will not terminate your participation in the Carbon Offset Program.

We may terminate your participation in the Carbon Offset Program at the end of the current billing period, two weeks before written notice by email.
7.2 User account. You may delete your user account at any time for any or no reason, in which case this user agreement will terminate automatically.
To do so, you must send Us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org so that We can delete your user account and the associated data. Please note that after your user account has been deleted, all data and content you have uploaded will or may be deleted by Us.
If at the time of deletion of your user account, you are still participating in our Carbon Offset Program, the Program will not terminate until the end of the current billing period and your user account will not be deleted until then. Any amount already paid by you for this billing period will not be refunded, not even on a prorated basis.
We may terminate the user agreement two weeks prior written, signed or unsigned, notice by email, however at the earliest at the end of the current billing period of your Carbon Offset Program.
7.3 Termination for good cause. Irrespective of the aforementioned provisions, the right to terminate the contract for good cause shall remain unaffected by both parties. In particular, We are entitled to terminate the user agreement or your Carbon Offset Program and to delete your user account with immediate effect, if you seriously or repeatedly violate the provisions of the user agreement and/or these Terms of Service or fail to make any payment when due despite a past due notice.
8.1. Prices. Our prices and currencies may vary from country to country. If you decide to participate in the Carbon Offset Program, the price and currency that apply to you will be displayed in the Myplan8 App or on the Myplan8 Website. The price for the individual Carbon Offset Program is determined by the share of your individual carbon footprint that you compensate for. All quoted prices already include applicable value-added or sales tax.
8.2 Collection of payments. Payments for your Carbon Offset Program will be collected in advance for the current billing period.
8.3 Payment Methods. You may make payment using your debit card, credit card or UPI or the payment method selected for Apple Pay or Google Play, depending on availability in your country.

The rupay card is not currently accepted.
We reserve the right not to offer certain payment methods and to refer you to other payment methods if there is a valid reason for doing so.
