B. Facility Rights and Benefits.
1. Identification by CRS. CRS agrees to identify the Facility as having a Tracking Attestation on file by listing the Facility on CRS's website. Certain facilities may be identified as “Approved - Requires Additional Green-e® Verification” if supply from such facilities is subject to steps additional to those for other CRS Listed™ facilities in order to be used toward CRS’s Green-e® certification.
2. Trademark License.
Grant of License. Subject to Facility’s continuing compliance with the Agreement, CRS hereby grants the Facility Representative a non-exclusive, non-transferable, worldwide, personal, limited license (without the right to sublicense) to use and display the mark “CRS Listed™” (the “Mark”) during the Term, in each case solely to identify Facility as having a Tracking Attestation in effect with CRS. To be clear, the foregoing license applies only to a particular Facility identified in the Agreement and is expressly conditioned on such Facility meeting the requirements set forth herein.
Limitations. Facility Representative will not use or display (or authorize others to use or display) the Mark in any manner whatsoever other than as expressly set forth herein. Facility Representative agrees that all use of the Mark, and all goodwill arising out of such use, will inure exclusively to the benefit of CRS. Facility Representative will not adopt, use or apply for registration of the Mark (or any trademark confusingly similar to the Mark) anywhere in the world, and CRS will retain the exclusive right to apply for and obtain registrations for the Mark and any of its other trademarks throughout the world. Facility Representative will not engage, participate or otherwise become involved in any activity or course of action either independently or with others that diminishes or tarnishes the image or reputation of the Mark or otherwise derogates CRS’s rights in the Mark. Facility Representative may use the Mark to indicate that the Facility has a Tracking Attestation in effect with CRS, but will not use the Mark in any way as an endorsement or sponsorship by CRS of any product, service, brand, or other operation. CRS’s acceptance of a Tracking Attestation will not constitute representations or warranties of CRS or give rise to any right of reliance for the benefit of Facility Representative or any third party.
Reservation of Rights. All rights not expressly granted in herein are reserved by CRS. Facility Representative acknowledges that it has not acquired, and will not acquire, any claim, right, title or interest in or to the Mark, except the limited right to use the Mark as expressly set forth herein. Facility Representative acknowledges that CRS is the owner of all right, title and interest in and to the Mark, and will not challenge the validity of the Mark, CRS’s ownership of the Mark, or the enforceability of Center’s rights in the Mark during the Term of the Agreement.
Cessation of Mark Use. Facility Representative agrees to promptly cease and desist from all use of the Mark in the event: (i) of termination or expiration of the Agreement, without notice and request by CRS, or (ii) that CRS determines that use of the Mark, in any particular manner or in any particular jurisdiction may violate any applicable laws or regulations, be contrary to public policy or may subject Facility Representative or CRS to any third party claims, legal proceedings, governmental investigations or proceedings, penalties or liabilities, upon receipt of notice and request from CRS.
C. Facility Responsibilities.
1. Payment of Fee. Facility Representative agrees to pay the applicable Annual Fee shown in the table below. Payment is due immediately upon submission of the Tracking Attestation as a condition of acceptance. Fees are non-refundable. CRS’s products and services may incur fee increases year over year. The Tracking Attestation applies to the current Term and does not guarantee the current rate for any renewals.
Annual Fee for Generators ($/Generator)
2. Submission of Materials. Facility Representative on behalf of the Facility is responsible for timely submitting all information or material requested by CRS.
D. Required Notice of Facility Changes. If Facility information provided in the Tracking Attestation changes, CRS requires submission of an updated Tracking Attestation. In addition, Facility Representative must notify CRS in writing if the Facility ceases to be registered in the tracking system or is out of compliance with that tracking system's rules.
No Rights to Green-e® Certified Representations
Acceptance by CRS of a completed Tracking Attestation does not mean that the Facility, Facility owner, Facility's output, or sale of Facility's output is Green‑e® Energy Certified. Authorized representatives of the Facility, including the Facility Representative, are expressly prohibited from representing products from any facility covered by the Attestation as Green-e® Energy Certified or meeting Green-e® certification criteria or program requirements. Only entities that are current participants in CRS’s Green-e® Energy certification program under the terms of active certification contracts are able to sell Green-e® Energy Certified products.
No Rights to CRS Marks or other Intellectual Property
Except as expressly stated herein, no property rights of CRS, including any trademark, service mark, copyright, patent, trade name or other intellectual property interests, including (without limitation) the Green-e® logo or "Green-e" word mark, are transferred to the other party through this Agreement. By submitting this Attestation, the Facility Representative expressly agrees that no party acting on behalf of the Facility will represent any renewable energy covered by this Attestation as "eligible" or "certifiable" or similar under CRS's Green-e® certification programs, which is strictly prohibited by CRS and may violate CRS's intellectual property and other rights. All rights not expressly granted are reserved.

CRS HEREBY DISCLAIMS ANY WARRANTIES, EXPRESS, IMPLIED OR STATUTORY, INCLUDING THOSE REGARDING MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR ANY PARTICULAR PURPOSE, TITLE, NON-INFRINGEMENT, AND ANY WARRANTY ARISING OUT OF ANY COURSE OF PERFORMANCE, COURSE OF DEALING OR USAGE OF TRADE.
