User Agreement

This is an agreement between the HKSAR Government and user of the online Nutrition Label Calculator (NLC) developed by the Centre for Food Safety (CFS).

Users are required to provide detailed nutrient information of their food products online when using the NLC. The Government does not guarantee that the information would not be made public or divulged to third parties because the use of NLC is made through internet.

The CFS grants the user a right to save, display, print and reproduce the nutrition label generated by the NLC in unaltered form for use only on food products.

Users shall use their skills, care and judgment when using the NLC to avoid errors.

The CFS makes no warranty that the results generated by the NLC will be free from error, or comply with the relevant requirements of the Amendment Regulation. Users shall take note that generation of the nutrition label is based on calculation of nutrient values of product ingredients and the respective weights provided by the users. Users shall take note and have taken into account the many factors that may affect the nutrient values of food products when entering the data in NLC, including but not limited to seasonal variations, processing practices and ingredient sources. Users should ensure that information presented in the nutrition labels comply with the Amendment Regulation.

The CFS alerts users to the inherent limitations in the NLC. Users shall carefully evaluate the accuracy, completeness and relevance of the results, and are advised to obtain appropriate professional advice relevant to their own particular circumstances.

By pressing the "Agree" button, users agree that they are fully responsible for any information supplied to produce nutrition labels on food products. Users acknowledge that under no circumstances shall the CFS be liable for any incidental or consequential damages resulting from its use. Users agree that they have read and understood the Amendment Regulation, the Technical Guidance Notes, the Method Guidance Notes and the Introduction of the NLC. Users shall read and shall be deemed to have read the User Guide of the NLC before using the NLC.

This User Agreement shall be governed by the law of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region. You agree to submit to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the Hong Kong courts.
