OWNERSHIP OF EARTHSURE PROGRAM
The not-for-profit Institute for Environmental Research and Education (“IERE”) owns and
manages environmental product declaration (“EPD”) program called Earthsure®, the first such
program in the United States. In support of that program, IERE has developed the Earthsure
Brewers program, an online automated system for producing EPDs for the Beer Industry.
Payment of fees provides access for one person (“seat”) to use the software. Use of this program
does not imply ownership. You (the organization paying for access to the Earthsure Brewer
program) may not extract, repackage, resell or reverse engineer the content of the Earthsure
Brewer software or its output.
CONFORMITY WITH APPLICABLE STANDARDS
This software was developed in conformity with the ISO 14025 and ISO 14044 standards for life
cycle assessment and EPDs, and IERE’s General Program Instructions. The software has been
validated and IERE as the program operator publishes and maintains the underlying Product
Category Rule, and all EPDs developed from them.
ACCURACY OF DATA AND RESULTS
Life cycle assessment is a technically demanding and complex activity. IERE has taken due care
in developing the background data and models supporting the Earthsure Brewer software, and
will continue to do so in maintaining and updating the data and software and any supporting
documentation. IERE does not warrant that the EPDs are without error. LCAs provide estimates
of potential environmental impact, and they do not predict impacts on category endpoints,
exceeding thresholds, safety margins or risks.
As a user, you agree to do your best to provide accurate, complete and current data as inputs to
the software and the resulting EPDs. For the purpose of data validation and review, you agree to
allow IERE to audit your processes, books and records at IERE’s sole discretion, upon three days
written notice. You will work with IERE to correct any errors in the data provided. Any
discovery by IERE of fraud will result in the removal of your brewery from the program.
CONFIDENTIALITY AND PRIVACY
The Earthsure Brewer and IERE collect personal and company confidential information in order
to provide the services of the EPD software. Personal information may include your name and
address as well as your credit card information. Company confidential information includes your
location(s), vendors, and details of your processes, as well as your recipes. IERE has taken all
due care to maintain the security of the data you input into the software.
IERE will not share or sell your personal or business confidential information with unrelated
IERE will use this information internally in order to provide services, and it may share it with
IERE vendors including our credit provider and software engineering provider in order to
properly bill for its services and to provide support to the software.
