Terms & Conditions

These terms and conditions govern your use of www.coolearth.org (hereafter referred to as the “Cool Earth Site”) and the making of donations to Cool Earth Action (hereafter referred to as “Cool Earth”) for the purposes of rainforest conservation. Please read them carefully as they affect your rights and liabilities under the law.

If you do not agree to these terms and conditions, please do not register for or use the Cool Earth Site. If you have any questions please contact [email protected]


Cool Earth is a company limited by guarantee registered in England and Wales (number 06053314) and a UK registered charity (number 1117978) with a registered office at 27 Old Gloucester Street, London, UK WC1N 3AX.


You must ensure that the details provided by you on registration for the Cool Earth Site or at any time are correct and complete.

You must inform us immediately of any changes to the information that you provided when registering by updating your personal details in order that we can communicate with you effectively.


All donations made to Cool Earth will be used to fund the work of Cool Earth and its partners in conserving critical ecosystems, investing in rainforest communities and preventing deforestation. Funds raised from the sponsorship of specific acres will be used by Cool Earth to fund all its activities and projects and are not limited to the acreage sponsored.

Cool Earth is not offering for sale any land. Donors will not receive title to the land sponsored or to the emissions reductions achieved by any of Cool Earth’s projects.

Your credit or debit card details will be encrypted to minimise the possibility of unauthorised access or disclosure. Authority for payment must be given at the time of placing your order.


Donations will be taken in pounds sterling. International donations will be converted to a sterling value at the exchange rate of the day.


As a donor, you will receive an email confirming your donation to Cool Earth. For sponsorship of rainforest, the email will confirm the area of land that your donation represents.

The confirmation email sent to you by Cool Earth is only to acknowledge the value of your donation. It does not place any liability upon Cool Earth and does not constitute or imply a contract.


All information based on biodiversity and carbon emissions are estimates. These factors can and do change over time. If new information is published, Cool Earth will update their information and are not liable for calculations done in the past.


Cool Earth works to ensure that less than 10% of its income will be required to cover administration and governance costs.

UK taxpaying donors are encouraged to tick the Gift Aid box when making a donation. Where the Gift Aid Scheme applies, Cool Earth is able to reclaim 20% of the amount of donation from the government.


All payments made to Cool Earth are classified as donations towards Cool Earth’s charitable activities and are non-refundable. The only circumstance in which refunds will be made is where unauthorised use of your payment card is proven.


You may not use the Cool Earth Site for any of the following purposes:

disseminating any unlawful, harassing, libellous, abusive, threatening, harmful, vulgar, obscene, or otherwise objectionable material or otherwise breaching any laws;
transmitting material that encourages conduct that constitutes a criminal offence, results in civil liability or otherwise breaches any applicable laws, regulations or code of practice;

Cool Earth shall not be responsible for any breach of these terms and conditions caused by circumstances beyond its reasonable control.
