The following Climate FieldView™ Terms of Service constitute a legal agreement (this “Agreement”) between you and either the Climate Corporation or an Affiliate of the Climate Corporation, as described in Appendix 1, depending upon the “Service Territory” in which your service address is located (Climate Corporation or the applicable Affiliate referred to herein as “we”, “us” or “Climate”). An “Affiliate” (in the singular or plural) means with respect to an entity, any other entity that, directly or indirectly, through one or more intermediaries, controls, is controlled by, or is under common control with that entity. Climate is an Affiliate of the Bayer Group of companies (“Bayer”). Your use of Climate FieldView products, software, hardware, services and web sites, excluding any products or services provided to you by Climate under a separate written agreement (referred to collectively as “FieldView Services”), is subject to the general terms and conditions set forth in this Agreement (“Terms of Service"). Additional terms may apply to certain FieldView Services as described below, which hereby are incorporated by reference (“Additional Terms”). If you are participating in a pre-commercial test of Climate’s FieldView Services, you may be asked to enter into testing agreement with Climate or one of Climate’s Affiliates. The Climate FieldView Terms of Service apply to the use of Climate’s FieldView Services by you if you are participating in a precommercial test; except that, if there is a conflict between the Climate FieldView Terms of Service and any of the terms contained in the testing agreement you entered into, the terms contained in the applicable testing agreement shall govern.
FieldView Services are for business use only. This Agreement establishes a business-to-business relationship between you and Climate. By downloading, installing, activating or otherwise using the FieldView Services, you represent and warrant that you are at least 18 years of age or the age of majority under the laws of where you reside, that you are acting for business purposes, and you agree to be bound by these Terms of Service. If you are accepting these terms on behalf of a company or other legal entity, you represent that you have authority to bind the entity, in which case “you” and “your” shall refer to you and such entity. If you are not 18 years or older, or do not agree to these Terms of Service, you may not use the FieldView Services.
THIS AGREEMENT LIMITS THE REMEDIES AVAILABLE TO YOU IN THE EVENT OF A DISPUTE AND ALSO IN THE UNITED STATES, REQUIRES THE USE OF ARBITRATION ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS TO RESOLVE DISPUTES RATHER THAN JURY TRIALS OR CLASS ACTIONS. Users in other Service Territories, see Section 6 below and Appendix 1 for applicable governing law and dispute settlement provisions.
1.1 Scope of Service: FieldView Services provide information, estimates, prescriptions or other recommendations based on models and third-party sources, and help you organize and evaluate data provided or inputted by you, your mobile device or your equipment. FieldView Services may not be available in all languages or in your Service Territory, and may not be appropriate or available for use in any particular location. Our services, models, data and recommendations may change over time. Individual results may vary, as weather, growing conditions and farming practices differ across growers, locations and time. We do not guarantee any results, and neither the FieldView Services nor Climate Generated Works (defined below) should be used as a substitute for sound farming practices, including regular and diligent field monitoring, or as the sole means for making farming, risk management or financial decisions. We recommend that you consult your agronomist, commodities broker and other service professionals before making financial, risk management and farming decisions.
1.2 Personal Data: Providing FieldView Services requires us to collect, share, and use some personal data about you. The Climate Privacy Statement, which is incorporated herein by reference, is available online at https://www.climate.com/us-privacy-statement.

You may have no more than one FieldView Account per Service Territory. When you create a FieldView Account, you will be asked to provide certain information about you and your business, such as your name, service address, email address, payment method and authorization, or other user information (“Account Information”).

Climate is not responsible for their actions in relation to your information.
