Please ensure that you take the time to read the terms of service. These terms relate to you and your use of the Services (as described below), and constitute a legal agreement between you, as a user of our Services, and GreenBe Systems, as the provider of the Services.
GreenMoney is a platform that provides rewards based on the City-wide actions of its accountholders via website made available at http://greenmoney.com.au (the "Services").
You may not at any time:
- copy, modify or distribute the website or applications and its contents for any purpose;
- transfer, sublicense, lease, lend, rent or otherwise distribute the Application or the Services to anyone else;
- reverse-engineer, decompile or create derivative works of the Application or the Services;
- make the functionality of the Application or the Services available to multiple users through any means; or
- use the Services in any unlawful manner, for any unlawful purpose, or in any manner inconsistent with the Terms. No other licenses or rights are granted to you by implication or otherwise under any intellectual property rights owned or controlled by GreenBe Systems.
- As part of the Services we provide, you may receive communications, alerts, emails or other types of direct electronic messages directly sent to you outside or inside the Services ("Personal Messages"). You have direct control over the Personal Messages settings, and can opt in or out of these Messages through the Services (with the possible exception of infrequent, important service announcements and administrative messages). Some of the Messages may be related to where you live, or to preferences you have set with regards to rewards or your account.
In order to access certain features of the Services, you must create a resident or workplace account ("Account"). Even if you do not "register" a username and/or password, we still need to create an Account for you in order to customise the Service user experience and show you more relevant information related to that experience. To create an Account, you must be at least 13 years of age. If you are younger than 13 years of age, then you need to ensure your parent or guardian's consent to your using the Services and redeeming rewards. If you register, you will be asked to choose a username and a password. You can use your username across all of our Services. As a result, your username will be valid for all GreenMoney Services. You are entirely responsible for safeguarding and maintaining the confidentiality of your password and you agree not to disclose your password to anyone else. You will be solely responsible for any activities or actions taken under your Account, whether or not authorised by you.
Please notify us immediately of any unauthorised use of your password or your Account. We are not liable for any loss or damage from your failure to comply with these requirements. You agree that the information you provide us will be true, accurate, current and complete. By creating an Account with us, you consent to the use of: (i) electronic means to complete the Terms and to provide you with any notices given pursuant to the Terms; and (ii) electronic records to store information related to the Terms or your use of the Services.
For residents - Rewards for recycling at home or unit
For accountholders participating in a recycling at home program, every time your household recycle bin is collected, the corresponding average weight data of the bin is recorded and then converts the weight of the bin into reward points to your household account. For the purposes of the rewards for recycling at home program, one kilogram of collected recyclable waste equates to between 10 - 50 points being awarded to the individual account holder depending on your location. Where a RFID bin tag is not available in your area, accountholders will receive the community or zonal average for their designated area.
Should there be any failure or error in the collection of a household's recycling material at any stage, we will credit the account using other means not correlated to the exact weight of the bin. Should we discover that a household bin has been contaminated by non-recyclable material, we may award reduced points or zero points for that collection or have the account cancelled without notice depending on the severity of the contamination.
The reward points earned by an account holder via the household recycling program are capped at a predetermined level at each collection in order to reduce the prospects of householder dishonesty and "overloading" a bin. We may change the predetermined weight cap at any time, without notice to households and account holders.
We are not ultimately responsible for any actions or omissions of government or waste management providers in relation to the collection of, or the accurate measurement of recyclable materials or accuracy of the reward points awarded to an individual account holder for home recycling.
The use of the Services are currently made available to users for free.
