We are continuously growing and improving our CSR rating system and monitoring platforms. To support changes to our services, we have updated our Terms and Conditions (T&Cs) that govern the use of and access to EcoVadis CSR evaluation portal and services. These changes become effective on March 27th, 2017.
The key changes are summarized below. However we encourage you to review the full, updated version here for French, here for English, here for German, here for Chinese or here for Spanish. By continuing to use EcoVadis services after March 27th, 2017, you agree to our updated Terms and Conditions. If you do not agree to the changes, you may discontinue use and cancel your subscription at any time. Termination of the contract does not give the right to claim any refund for prepaid and unused services solely by virtue of such termination.
Subject: We have provided additional detail about the nature of the service that includes both a CSR performance analysis and a monitoring platform.
