  10. GrowGBG makes available an online platform or marketplace with related technology for Growers and Owners to meet online and arrange for rental or lending of Land directly with each other. The Companies responsibilities are limited to facilitating the availability of the Site, Application and Services.

PLEASE NOTE THAT, AS STATED ABOVE, THE SITE, APPLICATION AND SERVICES ARE INTENDED TO BE USED TO FACILITATE GROWERS AND OWNERS CONNECTING AND SHARING LAND, PROJECT IDEAS OR KNOWLEDGE DIRECTLY WITH EACH OTHER. GROWGBG CANNOT AND DOES NOT CONTROL THE CONTENT CONTAINED IN ANY LISTINGS AND THE CONDITION, LEGALITY OR SUITABILITY OF ANY LAND OR PROPERTY. GROWGBG OR FPL IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR AND DISCLAIMS ANY AND ALL LIABILITY RELATED TO ANY AND ALL LISTINGS AND LAND. ACCORDINGLY, ANY BOOKINGS WILL BE MADE OR ACCEPTED AT THE MEMBER’S OWN RISK.

  1. The company is not responsible for who get’s the contract with the land.
    FPL can not be held accountable for which growers that are being matched and gets the final contract of tending the land or using it for growing food. The matchmaking service is based on a first come first served principle. Here the first Growers to register their interest and fill out the forms are the first to be invited to the site, but only if they match all the requirements. After this it is up the the landowner to choose who get’s the contract. The Company shall be held free of charge for any errors that are made in the matchmaking process. For any technical or personal errors or defects, please notify us with suggestions of improvement.

The company does not guarantee that the property owner wants to continue creating a farm or garden on their land after matching their land with a grower. The company shall not be held responsible for choices that the landowner makes in terms of saying no to any or all growers who apply for the land that the landowner puts up for match-making. 

If the Company matches you with land, that land is not guaranteed to be contracted to you. Before you have written a legally binding agreement with that landowner you shall never make any assumptions that the land will be rented to you or any other grower. The land can at any time be taken away from the matchmaking service on behalf of the owner or the company.

  1. The company does not guarantee that a Project idea will be matched with suitable land.
    Premium members has access to creating one or more project ideas were they can be matched with other people to start an association. Your project idea can then be matched with land, only if you can meet all the requirements of the landowner. All the requirements are found at the plot information page or the landowner partner information page. It is the growers responsibility to make sure you are matching all the requirements. However, even if you match all the requirements, this does not mean the company can guarantee the growers or their project to be matched with land.

  2. The company is not responsible for the quality of the land being matched.
    The company does not guarantee that the land you are matched with is of sufficient quality for growing food. The growers themselves has to make sure the soil is tested, the sunlight is sufficient and that there is access to water and other facilities needed. The Users bears all responsibility to ensure that the land is appropriate for farming, and do soil quality testing etc. FPL Consultancy services and Grow Services can be used as support in Site analysis and design, however it is always up to the Grower to make the final assessments and decision on where and how to farm.

    FPL shall be held free of charge for any injuries or accident that takes place in relation to but not limited to the site that is matched or made available through Service, or any other situation that may arise in any way can be connected to the Services offered by the Company.

It is up the the Users (Growers and Owners) to get an appropriate insurance for your gardening activity or write an appropriate contract for the land being matched on the platform.
