Terms & Conditions

Membership User Agreement

This Membership User Agreement (the “Agreement”) governs the terms for membership in and use of the meeting services offered by Client & Capital Connect. By participating in a conversation facilitated by Climate & Capital Connect, participants (referred to herein as “members”), agree to comply with all terms set forth below. If you cannot comply with these terms, you are instructed to not participate in a conversation and terminate your membership. Your failure to comply with this Agreement may result in the suspension or termination of your membership and right to participate in future conversations.   

About Climate & Capital Connect

Climate & Capital Connect arranges virtual meetings between our members based on information contained in their member profile. We match people for conversations based on criteria including but not limited to shared interests, geography, and/or availability.   

How it Works

When you are accepted as a member, you will be required to complete a membership profile. Your profile will include topics of interest to you, the general geographic area you are located in, and times that you would be available for meetings. We take it from there. We will do our best to connect you with people who match your membership profile and will send you an invitation to a virtual meeting. With occasional exceptions for holidays and/or company breaks, meeting invitations will be sent every two weeks. We cannot guaranty that you will be satisfied with the match or with the outcome of the conversation, or that the person we match you with will join the meeting at the designated time. 

Personal Data

Climate & Capital Connect collects and stores personal information about our members from sources including but not limited to their submission to sign up for our waitlist to become members, their membership profile, and digital and social media accounts and activities. We will comply with all applicable laws and regulation with regard to our collection, storage, and handling of personal information. You are directed to the privacy policy on our website for additional information. We reserve the right to edit any responses you submit on your waiting list application and membership profile as necessary for the information to make grammatical sense, to conform to our systems, and to remove any extraneous information, including but not limited to advertisements.    

As part of our meeting invitation processes, communications, and marketing, we will disclose to other members certain personal information about you, including but not limited to your e-mail address, your Linkedin profile, and your company name. We do this to make meetings more engaging and productive for both participants. By becoming a member, you consent to our use of your personal information in this manner. If you do not consent to this use and disclosure of your personal information, you should terminate your membership.       

Code of Conduct

As a member and participant in meetings arranged by Climate & Capital Connect, you are required to comply with the following Code of Conduct:

  • Be on time for meetings that you accept and be prepared to fully engage in the conversation. We do understand that emergencies happen and schedules change, but we ask that you provide as much advance notice as possible if you are unable to attend a scheduled meeting.   

  • Do not attempt to sell or offer for sale products or services. Members may discuss their business, services, and products, but our meeting platform is not intended to be used for sales or recruitment purposes.

  • Refrain from threats, obscenities, and other language that would violate the law if published, such as abusive, defamatory, or sexually explicit language. Comments must be civil and may not contain slanderous, malicious, offensive, profane, or insulting language.

  • Do not make any comments of a discriminatory or threatening nature (i.e,. hate speech) based on race, sex, gender, religion, national origin, sexual preference, age, disability, genetic information, and the like.

  • Do not provide or ask the other person for personal or sensitive information, such as phone numbers, e-mail addresses, postal addresses, or social security numbers.

  • Do not endorse any religious beliefs or practices or political parties, candidates, or groups.

  • Be prudent in disclosing any confidential or proprietary information. Climate & Capital Connect is not responsible for any unauthorized use or disclosure of any idea, concept, or confidential information that a member may disclose during a meeting.      

  • Do not use or disclose a fellow member’s personal information in any way without their written consent.     

While it is our intention to never ban anyone from participating in our platform, members who violate our Code of Conduct are subject to being suspended or to having their membership terminated without notice or refunds.

 

We strongly encourage members to report to us any violation of the Code of Conduct or any other aspect of a meeting that makes them feel threatened or uncomfortable. We reserve the right to report to any authorities we deem appropriate any comments that we in good faith believe imply harm or imminent danger to any person, and to provide the content of meetings to those authorities. By participating in a Climate & Capital Connect conversation you agree that we have the right to contact appropriate authorities to report any activities, threats, or behavior that we believe to be suspicious.
