The information contained in this Website is for general information purposes only. The information is provided by Caffeine Informer, which is operated and controlled by Exis Holdings Limited, a limited liability company incorporated under the laws of New Zealand (“We”,“Us”,”Our”).

We started the Website because we strongly believe consumers have a right to know how much caffeine is in a particular product. Collating the information is a labor of love, and thus our Website Terms of Use (“Terms”) are long and detailed to ensure the information we provide is not used (or misused) unlawfully. Please make sure you are familiar with and comfortable with the following Terms before you use the Website. By using the Website you acknowledge, accept and agree to be bound to the Terms.

In addition to agreeing to the Terms, by using the Website you also certify that you are an individual of at least 13 years of age, and that you have the full legal capacity to use the Website and be bound by its Terms. This Agreement is void where prohibited by law, and the right to access the Site is revoked in such jurisdictions.

We may revise and update these Terms at any time. Your continued use of the Website constitutes your accept of any changes.

Moreover, we may change, suspend or discontinue any aspect of the Website at any time, including the availability of any feature, database, or content. We may also impose limits on certain features and services to certain people without notice or liability at our sole discretion.

Medical Disclaimer

License to use Data

We’ve noticed a few people have copied our caffeine database data and used in applications and sites. Hey we’re flattered! But here’s the thing:

  1. It’s taken a lot of work to grow our collection of caffeine amounts, and we’re always working on it, but because we feel so strongly that consumers should be educated about the amount of caffeine is in a product, we say, go for it – use our data and make it wonderful and usable for everyone everywhere.
  2. You could do that and not even mention where you got it. That’s ok – but a little rude. But you must use our Medical Disclaimer or a version of your own that informs the reader of the general nature of the information.
  3. Even better – contact us and maybe we can help you with something, or collaborate – that would be way better for all of us.

In slightly more formal speak, we grant you a worldwide, perpetual, royalty-free licence to publish, reproduce, adapt, and otherwise deal with and use without limitation the caffeine amounts contained in this website.

If you do so, we request that, according to standard academic practice, you use us as a resource in the bibliography of any article, research paper or book.

Except in respect of the above, you will not (and will not permit others to) reproduce any other information, images, logos or other material contained in the Website in which we hold Intellectual Property Rights, without our prior written consent.

Availability of the Website

Every effort is made to keep the Website up and running smoothly. However, we take no responsibility for, and will not be liable for, the website being temporarily unavailable due to technical issues or any other reason whatsoever beyond our control.

Some of our features depend on the availability of third parties (like Facebook, Google, Twitter and Disqus for instance), therefore we will not be under any obligation to deliver the Website and / or all of its features where and to the extent that such third party constraints render us unable to do so.

Accuracy of the Website

While we have taken all due care in providing the information on our Website, we do not provide any warranty either express or implied as to the accuracy or fitness for a particular purpose of the information. We cannot guarantee the accuracy of our database (in particular the caffeine amounts for each particular product) and you should not rely on this information to make decisions about your caffeine consumption.

If you would like to challenge or correct any of the caffeine amounts or any other information contained in the Website please do so by using the Send Feedback function which is found on every product page.

We reserve the right to remove any Content from the Website at any time, for any reason (be it a complaint we received from a third party right you have infringed; a breach of these Terms; or any other reason whatsoever).
