Description of the service
The Calculation Tool is a climate footprint (“CF”) calculator for food products and food processes that offers a high level of precision for CF calculations, combined with a consistency between calculations that allow for fair comparisons between products. The Calculation Tool also allows for time-efficient CF- calculations that makes it possible for food producers to label their products with CF data. All CF calculations available via the Calculation Tool (including the result of the calculations) are hereinafter referred to as the (“Calculations”).
On the terms and conditions of this Agreement Oxtron will provide Client with a subscription based license to access and use the Service where the Client input Data in order to perform Calculations for specific Products. Client is hereunder granted the right to label its Products with the results of the Calculations for the purpose of presenting the CF of its Products to its customers. Oxtron also provides ancillary products, software, services and features in connection with the Calculation Tool as set out in this Agreement.
License grant and restrictions
A Product shall for the purposes of this Agreement mean a product made up of one specific recipe (a combination of different ingredients) or one single specific ingredient. For the avoidance of doubt, the same recipes or ingredients may result in different Products depending on production methods, suppliers and markets.
The Products encompassed by the license shall be specified in an Order where the Client shall list the number of Products, the name of the Products, as well as any other information which Oxtron may from time to time require for the submission of an Order. Client may request that the license granted under this Agreement shall be extended to new Products by submitting a new Order to Oxtron. All such Orders and any applicable Order Form shall be approved by Oxtron in its sole discretion and shall be subject to the provisions of this Agreement.
Subject to Client’s compliance with this Agreement, Oxtron hereby grants Client a non-exclusive, non-sublicensable, non-transferable license to access and use the Service for Client’s internal business purposes to input Data for the Products encompassed by the license and as specified in an applicable Order, perform Calculations and model production processes as well as use the results from the Calculations and the CF output for CF labelling for such Products (the “License“).
Unless explicitly stated otherwise in this Agreement, Client may not, and shall not allow any third party to: (i) license, sublicense, resell, rent, lease, transfer, assign, distribute, show, or otherwise commercially exploit or make the Service available to any third party; (ii) circumvent, disable or otherwise interfere with security-related features of the Service or features that prevent or restrict use or copying of any content or that enforce limitations on use of the Service; (iii) reverse engineer, decompile or disassemble, decrypt or, attempt to derive the source code of the Service, or any components thereof; (iv) copy, modify, translate, patch, improve, alter, change or create any derivative works of the Service, or any part thereof; (v) send to, or store in, the Service any infringing, inappropriate, unlawful material or content or any malicious code; (vi) take any action that imposes or may impose an unreasonable or disproportionately large load on the Service support infrastructure (vii) interfere or attempt to interfere with the integrity or proper working of the Service or any related activities; (viii) remove, deface, obscure, or alter Oxtron’s identification, attribution or copyright notices, trademarks, or other proprietary rights affixed to the Calculation Tool or provided as part of the Service; (ix) use the Service to develop a competing service or product and/or; (x) use the Service in any unlawful manner, for any harmful or inappropriate purpose, or in breach of this Agreement, any applicable third party terms and conditions.
If Oxtron believes, in its sole discretion, that the Client is using the Service in a manner that may cause harm to Oxtron or any third party, or in breach of this Agreement, Oxtron will provide Client with notice of such harmful or breaching use, and to the extent Client does not remedy such breach or ceases such harmful use within seven (7) days from such notice, Oxtron may, without derogating from the right to terminate this Agreement, suspend or terminate Client’s access to and use of the Service, or parts thereof.
Climate footprint calculations and data
The process for Calculations for specific Products is comprised of the following steps (as amended by Oxtron in its sole discretion from time to time:
The Client shall perform an initial mapping of the Client’s production process for the Products encompassed by the License. To the extent required, and upon Client’s reasonable request, Oxtron may assist the Client with this mapping.
Client is responsible for the input of Data for each Product as specified and requested by the Interface. The Client shall also at this stage add additional information regarding the applicable production processes, to facilitate the review process.
Upon complete input of Data as requested by the Interface, Oxtron shall undertake commercially reasonable efforts to review the Calculations provided by the Calculation Tool within thirty (30) business days from the date Oxtron receives notice by the Client that the Calculations for a specific Product are ready for review. Client acknowledges that Oxtron’s review may exceed thirty (30) business days in the event the Data input by Client is incomplete, there are discrepancies in the Data or Oxtron otherwise requires supplementary Data or clarifications to perform the review.
A Calculation requested by Client may be dependent on other Calculations and Client hereby acknowledges that Oxtron may be unable to perform a certain Calculation (in such time as stipulated under Section 6.1.3 or at all) if such underlying Calculations have not already been reviewed and approved by Oxtron and agrees that Oxtron shall not be held liable for such delay or inability.
Once the Calculations have been reviewed by Oxtron in accordance with Section 6.1.3 and approved (in Oxtron’s sole discretion and based on Oxtron's from time to time applicable approval criteria), Oxtron will provide Client with an automatically generated web report for each Product (“Report”) for use for its external communication purposes.
Client shall have the right to use the Report for its internal purposes before making the Report publicly available and shall always have the right to share, disclose or communicate a Report and its content with its Affiliates before publication. However, Client shall not share, or otherwise disclose or communicate a Report, or any part thereof with any third party without making the Report publicly available on the Internet. Client may, in its own discretion, make the Report publicly available via the Service and Oxtron shall, upon Client’s request assist with such publication. Upon such request by Client, Oxtron will undertake commercially reasonable efforts to assist the Client in making the Report publicly available on the Internet as soon as possible. For the avoidance of doubt, Oxtron shall keep the Report confidential and not make the Report publicly available without Client’s consent. In the event Client breaches its obligations under this Section 6.2 and communicates a Report, or part thereof, to a third party without making a Report publicly available, Oxtron shall have the right to make a Report publicly available.
The Calculations are based on both primary data for the Client’s internal processes as requested by the Interface (“Primary Data”) and secondary data for the processes of the Client’s suppliers (“Secondary Data”).
The Client shall provide Primary Data to the Interface as requested. In the event Oxtron does not have access to Secondary Data, as a whole or in part, necessary to perform the Calculations, Client shall upon notice by Oxtron undertake commercially reasonable efforts to make available, or obtain such Secondary Data to the extent such data can be obtained by Client without cost. If Secondary Data cannot be obtained by Client or Oxtron, Client hereby acknowledges and agrees that Oxtron may use freely available approximate, generic but representative data to perform the Calculations and that this may affect the results of the Calculations. Oxtron shall under no circumstances have any liability to Client or to any third party as a result of Oxtron’s inability to obtain or access Secondary Data or approximate, generic and representative data.
The Client hereby warrants and represents that all Data and any information regarding underlying processes provided by Client under this Agreement, to the best of its knowledge, is correct and complete. Client is solely responsible for keeping and maintaining its own copies of its Data. Oxtron shall use commercially reasonable efforts to maintain the security and integrity of Data provided by Client under this Agreement but shall under no circumstance be liable for any loss of Data.
Oxtron shall undertake commercially reasonable efforts to ensure that the Oxtron are correctly performed. Client acknowledges that the outcome of the Calculations is dependent on that the Data provided by Client is correct and complete and that the Client has provided correct information about the underlying processes. Oxtron does not take any responsibility for Client’s input of Data and other information to the Calculations and the variations in the outcome thereof.
Since the Data may change over time, Calculations may have to be updated to take into account the variable underlying Data. It is the Client’s sole responsibility to perform new Calculations by updating Data provided via the Interface as necessary. After each new or updated Calculation, Client undertakes to send the calculation for review so that Oxtron may review the Calculations. Under no circumstances shall Oxtron be liable for the outcome of Calculations to the extent such Calculations are performed on non-up to date Data provided by Client.
Climate footprint labelling
The Client shall have the right to label Products encompassed by the License with the CF of the respective Product as well as the climate label designed by Oxtron (the “Climate Label”). The Climate Label includes both the name Oxtron, and Oxtron’s logotype. The aforementioned shall also apply for any marketing material applicable to Products encompassed by the License. Client shall include Oxtron’s name in all external communication of the CF and in the event of communication by electronic and/or digital means Client shall include a link to the Report for a specific Product. For the avoidance of doubt, Client shall have the right to use the design of the CF as provided by Oxtron from time to time when labelling its Products and applicable marketing material. If Client wishes to use a design of the CF not provided by Oxtron, Oxtron may, subject to separate agreement between the Parties assist Client in creating such a design.
The labelling may be made on the packaging for the respective Product and any marketing material, as applicable. The name of Oxtron shall be included and clearly indicated as the originator of the CF. The placement of the label must be such that Client’s customers are not misled. The Client hereby acknowledges and agrees to adhere to any reasonable requests, directions and instructions communicated from time to time by Oxtron regarding the use of the Climate Label. The Climate Label for the respective Product is available for download in the Calculation Tool after the review under Section 6.1.3 in this Agreement is completed. Oxtron reserves the right to in its sole discretion change or alter the design of the Climate Label provided which will be notified to the Client.
The Client shall not label its Product, packaging or marketing material with any misleading information as regards the CF and shall not label any Product, packaging or marketing material for which the Client does not have an active License with any CF output. The right to label a Product and marketing material with the CF shall only apply during the period Client has an active License for the relevant Product.
If any changes will be, or are, made in the Data for a Product encompassed by the License and Client has reason to believe that such Data in Client’s reasonable opinion may affect the Calculations to a not insignificant extent, the Client hereby undertakes to immediately, but under no circumstances later than twenty (20) business days after such change has been carried out, inform Oxtron and update the Data in the Interface. Upon such notice, Oxtron shall perform a new review in accordance with Section 6.1.3. The Client must not label any Product, packaging or marketing material with the old CF after changes in the Data has been made, and must wait until the Calculation for the Product with the new Data has been performed and reviewed and approved by Oxtron in order to label Products, packaging and marketing material with the new CF. Products, packages or marketing material which have been labeled before the changes took place but which have not yet been sold may continue to be sold with the old CF provided that the CF is correct and not misleading. Under no circumstances shall Oxtron be liable in any way in relation to Products, packaging and marketing material labeled with the old CF.
Client hereby acknowledges that Data for a Product may be updated on an on-going basis, including but not limited to as a result of updated or new Calculations by the Client’s suppliers, and that this may result in automatic updates to a Report. The information in a Report may therefore differ from the Climate Label on a Product. This process ensures that the Calculations are kept updated and correct and Oxtron shall have no liability for any discrepancies between the CF labelled on a Product and a Report.
Fees and payment
In consideration for the License and the use of the Service provided by Oxtron under this Agreement, Client shall pay Oxtron a subscription and/or license fee per Product and month along with any additional fees agreed between the Parties in the applicable Order Form or otherwise (the “License Fee”). The costs for Oxtron’s assistance with the initial mapping in accordance with Section 6.1.1 and the costs for Oxtron’s review of the Calculations in accordance with Section 6.1.3 are included in the License Fee.
All fees are non-refundable and exclusive of any taxes, levies, or duties, which are Client’s responsibility. To the extent Client is required by applicable rules or regulations to deduct or withhold taxes or other amounts from any amounts due to Oxtron, Client must notify Oxtron in writing. Oxtron hereby reserves the right to assess any withheld amount or to increase the gross amount of the applicable payment so that, after the deduction or withholding, the net amount received by Oxtron will not be less than the amount Oxtron would have received without the required deduction or withholding.
Client may pay the License Fee by invoice. The License Fee for the first twelve (12) months of a Subscription (“Initial Subscription Period”) will be charged on a quarterly, twice yearly or annual basis. The License Fee will be charged immediately in connection with the confirmation of an Order. Thereafter, Client will be invoiced the License Fee in advance for the period. Client payments may be processed through a third party payment processing service, and additional terms may apply to such payments. Oxtron hereby reserves the right to use such third party payment processing services in its sole discretion and Client hereby acknowledges and agrees that, in addition to this Agreement, such third parties’ terms and conditions may apply to its payment.
In case of overdue payment, Client shall pay Oxtron interest at the rate of 10 (ten) percent per year counted from the due date until it has been paid. Client shall also compensate Oxtron for any actual fees in connection with debt collection.
Oxtron reserves the right to modify the License Fee in its discretion, at any time after the Initial Subscription Period, upon at least one (1) months prior notice to Client, provided that any such modification will not take effect until the start of a Renewal Term immediately following the term in which Oxtron notified Client of the modification. Notwithstanding the aforementioned, if Oxtron notifies Client of a price modification one (1) month or less before the start of a Renewal Term, Client may provide Oxtron with a notice of non-renewal at any time prior to the start of such Renewal Term if Customer does not agree to the price modification.
If payment is overdue in accordance with this Section 8, Oxtron shall have the right to (in addition and without prejudice to any other remedies Oxtron may have under this Agreement or Applicable Laws or regulations) suspend and/or discontinue Client’s access to the Service with immediate effect upon notification to Client.

Agreement without limitation in time.
In the event that Client provides Oxtron with any suggestions, ideas, improvements or other feedback with respect to the Service (“Feedback”), Client hereby grants Oxtron a non-exclusive, perpetual, irrevocable, sublicensable, transferable, royalty-free, fully paid-up worldwide right and license to copy, reproduce, modify, create derivatives of, display, perform, sell, offer for sale, distribute and otherwise exploit such Feedback for any purpose, including without limitation, using and incorporating such Feedback into the Service.
Each Party shall have the right to use the name and logotype of the other Party under this Agreement. With regard to Oxtron, this includes mentioning the Client’s name as a partner or customer on Oxtron’s website or in other marketing material. Any such use shall be in accordance with any trademark guidelines and instructions from the Party owning the name and logotype.
Each Party agrees to treat as trade secrets, hold in confidence and not disclose the Agreement or the content thereof and any and all technical or commercial information, including but not limited to the Service, Client’s account, Data, Calculations, results of Calculations, information connected to how the Calculations are made and any other non-public information in any form that the other Party designates as confidential or should be reasonably known by the receiving Party to be confidential due to the nature of the information disclosed and/or the circumstances surrounding the disclosure, received from the other Party in connection with this Agreement, whether marked as “confidential” or not (“Confidential Information”). This Agreement and any Order Form (but not the existence of the contractual relationship between the Parties) shall also be considered Confidential Information. Each Party agrees not to disclose Confidential Information to third parties, unless such disclosure is required by Applicable Law, and to use Confidential Information only for the purposes of fulfilling its obligations under this Agreement.
Confidential Information shall not be deemed to include information that:
is or becomes public knowledge without breach of the provisions of this Agreement;

is lawfully received from a third party which has no obligation to keep the information confidential; or is independently developed by one Party without reference to Confidential Information provided by the other Party.
The obligations of this Section 10 shall survive the termination or expiration of this Agreement and remain in effect for a time period of five (5) years from the date of termination or expiration.
Neither Party shall be liable for failure to perform, or delay in performing, an obligation under this Agreement (except for Client’s obligation to pay the License Fee) in case the performance thereof is prevented or delayed by any cause beyond the affected Party’s reasonable control which shall include industrial disputes, riots, wars, terrorist acts, epidemics, embargo, fire, explosion, lock-out, natural disasters, extreme weather conditions and similar. The affected Party shall immediately inform the other Party thereof. If such causes prevent a Party from substantially performing its obligations hereunder for a period of sixty (60) days or more, either Party may terminate this Agreement or the affected portion of the Service with immediate effect upon written notice.
Limitation of liability
The Client is solely responsible, and Oxtron shall not be liable, for any conclusions or actions based on the results from the Calculations.
To the extent legally permitted, in no event will Oxtron be liable to Client or to any third party for any special, indirect, punitive, incidental, compensatory or consequential damages (including, without limitation, any damages or costs due to loss of profits, data, use, goodwill, personal or property damage, or the cost of procuring substitute products or services) resulting from or in connection with the Agreement or Client’s use of the Service, regardless of the cause of action or the theory of liability, whether in tort, contract, strict liability or otherwise, and even if Oxtron has been notified of the possibility of such damages.
Except with respect to Oxtron’s indemnification obligation under Section 14.2, Oxtron’s total maximum liability under this Agreement shall be limited to the compensation actually paid by Client to Oxtron during a time period of twelve (12) months immediately preceding the date on which the claim was made, regardless of the theory or basis of liability (such as, but not limited to, breach of contract or tort).
Client hereby acknowledges that the pricing of the Service is set to fairly and reasonably reflect Oxtron’s liability under this Agreement and if Client objects to any provision of this Agreement, or any subsequent modification hereto, or otherwise becomes dissatisfied with the Service, Client’s only recourse is to discontinue the use of the Service and terminate its Subscription in accordance with the provisions herein.
