As the holder of an “Enterprise Trial User Account”, you warrant that you have the authority to act on behalf of the Enterprise identified in that account.

All account holders (whether Enterprise Trial User Account, Customer Trial User Account or another kind of account) are encouraged to actively participate in the Harvest To Order Community. Harvest To Order is a community by and for food buyers/sellers. Together, we are building a website where we can share our experience and knowledge. For Harvest To Order to thrive, we need people to share their knowledge, experience, and needs and help build the site itself.

  • a user account with the Harvest To Order website and participation in discussions;
  • logging of problems on bug herd;
  • response to feedback requests; and
  • participation in face to face discussions with other members of the community.

Post limited beta phase, the Harvest To Order will have different accounts and associated fee structure.

Post limited beta phase, your contributions will be taken into account through a waiver of future payment, at our discretion.

Attachment 1: Harvest To Order Community Guidelines

Harvest To Order is a community by and for food buyers/sellers. Together, we are building a website where we can share our experience and knowledge. For Harvest To Order to thrive, we need people to share their knowledge, experience and needs, and help build the site itself.

Whatever your interest in Harvest To Order you are welcome here, and will be treated with respect.

In particular:

  • We welcome people of any age, gender identity or expression, ethnicity, nationality, religion or absence thereof, political opinion, sexual orientation, marital status, family structure, ability or disability, appearance, subculture, or other identity or self-identification.
  • We welcome people of all skill and experience levels, and we don’t believe in being dismissive or commenting rudely just because you are new or learning.
  • Every role in our community is important, including food producers and traders who contribute skills, knowledge, and information to our site; coders, designers and other techies who help build it; moderators and others who help our community thrive; or any other form of participation. We believe in working together and prioritize communication and mutual understanding.

If you want to participate in the Harvest To Order community (which includes our website and any auxiliary forums such as our mailing list(s) etc), you need to agree to our general commitment to inclusiveness and mutual respect, as well as to the following specific policies:

  • Harassment of any Harvest To Order community member is forbidden. Harassment includes slurs directed at individuals or groups; unwanted sexual remarks directed at any person or group; sexually explicit comments or imagery in public spaces; stalking or other repeated, unwanted contact; or any repeated or sustained behavior which disrupts someone else’s enjoyment of the Harvest To Order site or community.
  • The privacy of our community members is very important. You may not disclose any member’s personal details (including names by which they are known outside of Harvest To Order, their location, employment details, family details, outside-of-Harvest To Order contact details, or any other identifying or personal information) without their explicit consent.
  • Although we let you choose your own name on our site, and don’t insist that you use the same name on our website as you have on the cards in your wallet, you’re not allowed to create or use a pseudonymous account to mislead people, evade accountability, or otherwise cause trouble. (This is commonly known as a “sockpuppet” account.)

If you experience or witness behavior that goes against these community guidelines, you can report it to contact@harvesttoorder.com. We will listen carefully and take your report seriously. Once we’ve looked into the situation, we may take any action we deem necessary. For instance, we may issue a

warning, or in serious cases we may suspend or ban people from our community. If this happens, we will always tell the person affected the reason for our action, with reference to our policy documents.
