Subject to the provisions of this EULA, the Service may include the application programming interface for the Cool Farm Tool (the “API”).

If you are accessing the Service for any other reason, including, without limitation, on behalf of an entity for commercial purposes or commercial advantage, or if you or any entity on whose behalf you are acting receives any payments or other monetary compensation from any third parties in relation to your use of the Service, or if we have agreed to provide you with access to the API, then you are a “Commercial Licensee” and you or the entity on whose behalf you are accessing the Service must, in addition to this EULA, enter into a separate licence agreement with Cool Farm Alliance Community Interest Company.
