Welcome to our website. At Bloomtrigger we aim to provide you with simple, affordable and creative ways to help protect forests. We enable you to invest in the protection of forests through the purchasing of our ‘bloom’ credits. We will only invest your money in conservation projects that meet the highest standards. Our aim is perpetual forest preservation and we are committed to a 40 year preservation model as a minimum.
Bloomtrigger CIC is a limited liability Community Interest Company registered in England and Wales under company number 6885623 and with registered office at Yew Tree Farm, Bexton Lane, Knutsford, Cheshire, WA169BH, United Kingdom. The terms "you" and "user" refer to the registered user or viewer of our website. Access to the website is permitted on a temporary basis and we reserve the right to withdraw the site or suspend the service or any content contained upon site at any time without notice. We will not be liable if for any reason the site is unavailable at any time or for any period.
When you purchase goods (for example ‘blooms’) on this website you agree that you wish to receive the goods ordered and pay Bloomtrigger the purchase price immediately.
You are fully aware that by purchasing ‘blooms’ you are helping to protect rainforest and support the work undertaken by local forestry commissions. A ‘bloom’ only has value as a virtual currency and represents a symbolic value of protected rainforest. You are NOT buying any form of tangible asset, such as land titles and have no rights of ownership over the area of rainforest being protected. You have no rights of ownership to any carbon value or forestry credits generated from the forest projects Bloomtrigger helps to protect. Any reference to carbon on the website is solely for educational purposes. It is agreed that as the true guardians of the forest the local forestry communities should be the primary beneficiaries from any additional value generated from the protected forest areas. Through the purchase of ‘blooms’ and other goods you are supporting Bloomtrigger and our forest conservation partners in our aim for perpetual forest preservation and we are committing to a 40 year model as a minimum.
We will act to ensure Bloomtrigger selects forestry projects carefully to maximize the effectiveness and long-term impact of our investment in rainforest protection. However we cannot be held responsible for any losses or failures that are beyond our reasonable level of control, such as natural disasters or due to excessive human interference.
Becoming a part of 'the Bloomtrigger Corporation' and purchasing blooms
It is important to make clear that due to the nature of 'the Bloomtrigger project' not all businesses and organisations will suitable or accepted due the organisations exposure on the website to primary school children under 12 years of age. Businesses related to gambling, alcohol or tobacco products are an obvious example of organisations that are not permitted to promote their brands to children by UK law. Therefore any business that does not meet the criteria to advertise to children under UK law will NOT be welcome to become a part of 'the Bloomtrigger Corporation'. As a business looking to purchase blooms it is your responsibility to check with the Advertising Standards Authority to make sure you are not in breach of any laws. Should you subsequently be rejected from the Bloomtrigger Corporation on these terms then Bloomtrigger will not provide any refund.
Cancellation and refund policy
Please note that as a CIC Community Interest Company, Bloomtrigger will not cancel or refund any purchase of ‘blooms’ other than payments taken owing to an error. You agree that from the moment the 'blooms' have been supplied to your profile the performance of the service by Bloomtrigger will begin. You agree to the service starting before the end of the usual cancellation period of seven working days, therefore your cancellation rights will end when performance of the service starts. Bloomtrigger reserves the right to reject or remove any individual or organisation from the website and will do so at our own discretion. If you are removed or rejected from the website Bloomtrigger will not provide any refunds, neither are we obligated to offer any explanation.
