1.2 The App runs in the background of the Device on which it is activated. Users do not need to interact with the App during journeys and are advised not to do so.

6.1 Access to the App is not subject to a fee. The App will enable you to make use of certain functionality to estimate your average Vehicle Carbon Footprint without charge.
6.2 You may use the App to offset the carbon cost of your vehicle journeys by using the payment options available on the App. 

Subscription Fee

6.3 Where the App permits you to pay a Subscription Fee, the price of the Subscription Fee offered to you will be calculated based on your previous use of the App and its estimation of your average monthly Vehicle Carbon Footprint.
6.4  Where your use of the App indicates that your Vehicle Carbon Footprint has varied from previous months the App may offer you an alternative Subscription Fee. If you do not accept the new Subscription Fee and continue your use of the App using your original payment plan then you accept that you are unlikely to be effectively offsetting your Monthly Vehicle Carbon Footprint.
6.5 The Subscription Fee is payable monthly in advance and payment will be taken by Drive Key using the payment details provided by you via the App. You may cease paying the Subscription Fee at any time, but cancellation of your subscription to any carbon offsetting plan previously recommended by the App will not entitle you to any form of refund or rebate. Ceasing to pay the Subscription Fee, intentionally or otherwise, will cause you to lose access to any paid functionality contained within the App.

Carbon Offset Fee

6.6 Where the App permits you to pay a Carbon Offset Fee, the price of the Carbon Offset Fee will be calculated based on your previous use of the App and its estimation of your Vehicle Carbon Tailpipe emissions.
6.7 You may access and pay your Carbon Offset Fee at any time.
6.8 You will have the option to pay an amount which is equal to, more than or less than the  Carbon Offset Fee. Where you only pay part of the Carbon Offset Fee, the outstanding amount will be rolled over for when we recalculate the Carbon Offset Fee. If you only pay part of the Carbon Offset Fee then you accept that you are unlikely to be effectively offsetting your Vehicle Carbon Footprint.
6.9You accept that when you pay the Carbon Offset Fee you will also automatically be charged for a Karai Fee which will be paid to us as consideration for providing the App and its associated services. The Karai Fee shall be a percentage of the Carbon Offset Fee provided that the Karai Fee is not less than £1, such percentage to be specified in the payment section of the App. You accept that payment of the Karai Fee is an essential element of your payment obligations and you cannot pay the Carbon Offset Fee without also paying us the Karai Fee. 
6.10 Payment of the Carbon Offset Fee and Karai Fee will be taken immediately after you confirm that you would like to make payment using the payment details provided by you via the App.  
6.11 Drive Key reserves the right to introduce new Fees or to change the pricing of the various tiers of Subscription Fees from time-to-time by giving you no less than 14 days’ written notice (including notices given via the App).
