We are here to help you get started or answer any question you may have regarding our Platform and Services. We will do our best to respond to your requests and answer questions as quickly as possible.

DESCRIPTION OF SERVICES

The Services are offered as a platform to users of the Services, which may include Fundraisers and Donors (each defined herein) and other registered users of the Services (which may include users who simply "like" Campaigns or otherwise interact with the Platform or Services). Among other features, the Services are designed to allow a user (a "Fundraiser") to post a fundraising website or fundraising campaign ("Campaign") to the Platform to accept monetary contributions or donations ("Donations") from those registered users wishing to donate funds to the Campaign ("Donors"). For purposes hereof, the term "Fundraiser" shall also be deemed to include any individual(s) designated as a Fundraiser of a Campaign.

CAMPAIGNS

Fundraisers hosting Campaigns on the platform are not necessarily charities to which you can make tax-deductible charitable donations. Although the Platform enables Donors to make donations to American nonprofit organizations via registered as 501(c)(3); Indian Trusts, Societies, NGOs, and other nonprofit organizations registered via 80G, 12A, 35AC, 80CCC, 80U, 115A, 115AB, 115AC, 115AD & 115D; UK Registered Charity tax exempt via HMRC, Canada Charity approved by CRA; and other international non profits, charities, other nonprofit entities, certain for-profit or individual entities, ("Donations"), we serve as an intermediary and not a party to any such Donations. Any donation you make to a Charity through the Platform will be subject to a payment gateway transaction fee as described at https://gocrowdera.com/pricing. You understand and acknowledge, however, that Crowdera is not a charity. We are not a Broker, Financial Institution, Creditor or Charitable Institution. The Services are an administrative platform only. Accordingly, we shall have no liability to any party in connection with such Donations and donations, and our Fundraisers and Donors acknowledge this when using the Platform.

Crowdera facilitates the Donation transaction between Fundraisers and Donors, but is not a party to any agreement between a Fundraiser and a Donor, or between any user and a Charity. Crowdera is not a broker, agent, financial institution, creditor or insurer for any user. Crowdera has no control over the conduct of, or any information provided by, a Fundraiser, and Crowdera hereby disclaims all liability in this regard to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law.

Crowdera does not guarantee that a Campaign will obtain a certain amount of Donations or any Donations at all. We do not personally endorse any Campaign or Fundraiser, and we make no guarantee, explicit or implied, that any information provided through the Services by a user is accurate. We expressly disclaim any liability or responsibility for the success of any Campaign, or the outcome of any fundraising purpose. You, as a Donor, must make the final determination as to the value and appropriateness of contributing to any Campaign, or Fundraiser.

We do not and cannot verify the information that Fundraisers supply, nor do we guarantee that the Donations will be used in accordance with any fundraising purpose prescribed by a Fundraiser. We assume no responsibility to verify whether the Donations are used in accordance with any applicable laws; such responsibility rests solely with the Fundraiser, as applicable. While we have no obligation to verify that the use of any funds raised is in accordance with applicable law and these Terms of Service, we take possible fraudulent activity and the misuse of funds raised very seriously. If you have reason to believe that a Fundraiser or Charity is not raising or using the funds for their stated purpose, please reach out to the Fundraiser directly and send us an email via our help desk to alert our team of this potential issue and we will investigate.

PERKS
