Before using SCRIPT™

SCRIPT™ (Soft Commodity Risk Platform – the ‘System’) is owned and operated by The Global Canopy Foundation, trading as ‘Global Canopy’, a company registered in England and Wales with company number 04293417 and whose registered office is 3 Frewin Chambers, Frewin Court, Oxford, England, OX1 3HZ (‘GC’).

GC may make changes to these Terms and Conditions at any time by updating this posting. You should, therefore, review the Terms and Conditions regularly.
