  1. SankalpTaru Services Description SankalpTaru Foundation is an NGO registered under societies act 21, 1860. It aims to create greenery on earth with the contribution from corporate organizations, their employees, individuals, environmental agencies and funding entities. ST gives its users an opportunity to select a site from listed options to plant trees. We use internet and associated information technology enabled processes to ensure transparency and visibility. We issue a certificate as a token of appreciation to planters and also post the same on social networks if the user opts for the same. In lieu of our services following points should be noted:
    1. ST runs the tree plantation and rural livelihood program in association with our NGO partners. We follow a strict due diligence process to select sites for plantation and we do a detailed scrutiny in order to select NGO partner to be responsible for carrying out the plantation in selected locations
    2. We leverage services from various environmental agencies and independent experts to select plant species
    3. ST and its affiliates (including our NGO partners) adopt best practices to plant trees and make best efforts maintain trees post plantation. However ST shall not be responsible for any harm to planted trees which may occur due to reasons beyond our control (fire, flood, earthquake, drought, diseases and land acquisition by government authorities). We also enforce fencing and protection mechanism to ensure planted trees are intact and safe however ST shall not be responsible for the harm occurring from illegal felling or grazing of trees
    4. Sometimes it may be possible that we may tag already planted tree to your virtual tree. This is done only under the circumstances wherein we feel that actual plantation is not possible due to unforeseen conditions. We maintain a separate lot to meet the aforementioned eventuality. However, ST never tags trees which have already been tagged to other planters
    5. As soon as a virtual tree is planted on ST portal, we arrange for plantation of the real tree at the location chosen by the planter. However whenever weather conditions do not allow timely plantation there might be a delay in plantation (to a maximum extent of one year) and ST will notify planters about the delay. Subject to weather conditions there might be change in location of actual tree plantation, ST however will notify about the actual location of plantation
    6. Wherever contributors/planters are interested to visit plantation sites they are encouraged to do so on their own expenses
    7. ST follows strict audit processes to track post plantation growth and survival of planted trees, it also plants extra number of trees (buffer trees) to minimize effect of mortality rate that might occur due to unavoidable circumstances or reasons mentioned earlier. We have implemented best technology system to track and map individual trees however there might be minor deviation due to unavailability of GPS signals at few places/under few weather conditions
    8. Planters do not own trees or any products derived from the trees planted by them
  2. "We as a merchant shall be under no liability whatsoever in respect of any loss or damage arising directly or indirectly out of the decline of authorization for any Transaction, on Account of the Cardholder having exceeded the preset limit mutually agreed by us with our acquiring bank from time to time"
