You are solely responsible for providing any hardware, systems and software programs needed to access the Services, and for any associated fees, charges and expenses.

If you choose to register for an Account, you agree to: (a) provide true, accurate and complete information about yourself as prompted by the registration form; and (b) maintain and promptly update such information to keep it true, accurate, current and complete as permitted through the functionality of the Services. You acknowledge and agree that we will have no liability associated with or arising from your failure to maintain accurate registration information, including, without limitation, your failure to receive important information and updates about the Services. If we have reasonable grounds to suspect that the information you provided on the registration form or otherwise is untrue, inaccurate or incomplete, we may suspend or terminate your Account and refuse any and all current or future use of the Services (or any portion thereof) by you.

The Services are designed to enable business that registers with us (“Company”) to select charities and other causes (each, a “Charity”) and to donate a designated amount (each, a “Donation”) to such Charity’s for each “check-in” by a customer of the Company through the Services. As part of this process, a Company may provide customers with an associated discounted offer for goods or services (“Offer”) that may be redeemed at upon such check-in. If you create an Account for or otherwise use the Services on behalf of a Company or Charity, the following terms will apply in addition to the other terms and conditions set forth in these Terms.
(a) If you registering on behalf of a Company:
(1) Company shall honor its donation commitments to each Charity. We will track the customer check-ins associated with Company and invoice the Company on a monthly basis for the aggregate amount of the Donations, from which we will deduct our administrative fee and any credit card processing fees that we incur prior to remitting Donations to the applicable Charity. Company understands and agrees that it may change its donation commitments using the Service, however the Donation amount specified by Company at the time of the applicable check-in will be used in calculating the aggregate amount of Donations owed by Company hereunder. All sums payable by Company to us under this Agreement are exclusive of any taxes, and are due and payable by credit card only within 15 days after the date of the applicable invoice. At our option, we may charge, and Company shall pay, interest on any late payments at the rate of 1.5% per month or, if lower, the maximum rate allowed by law.
(2) Company agrees that it is solely responsible for any issues or problems that may arise in relation to an Offer, and will ensure that (i) each Offer reflects all material terms and conditions related thereto and (ii) all information contained in an Offer is and will remain accurate and complete. Company is solely responsible for the redemption of all Offers made available by Company through the Services, and for tracking redemption of all Offers. We have no responsibility to track the redemption of Offers. Company will honor each Offer when the user presents it, and shall include any restrictions (if applicable) to the Offer prior to the display of the Offer through the Services. Company may not vary the terms or conditions that are applicable to the Offer in any way that is detrimental to users. In addition, Company will treat our users no less favorably than any other customers of Company.
(b) If you registering on behalf of a Charity: Charity acknowledges and agrees that we will remit the applicable amount of Donations, minus our administrative fee and any credit card processing fees that we incur, to Charity through our chosen payment processing partner, if Charity registered with us for use of the Services. If Charity is not directly registered with us, but is registered with GuideStar USA, Inc. as a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation, we will remit the applicable amount of Donations to a segregated escrow account on Charity’s behalf, and such Donations will be released to Charity by the escrow agent pursuant to the terms of the applicable escrow agreement. These are the only two methods by which a Charity can receive Donations through the Service. IF CHARITY IS NEITHER REGISTERED DIRECTLY WITH US NOR WITH GUIDESTAR AS DESCRIBED ABOVE, IT MAY NOT RECEIVE DONATIONS HEREUNDER OR OTHERWISE PARTICIPATE IN THE SERVICES.
(c) Terms applicable to both Companies and Charities: You hereby grants us the right to display the information provided by or on your behalf on or through the Services, and in any other form of advertising or promotion of the Services, as designated by us. You represent and warrant that you will at all times comply with all applicable laws and regulations in connection with your use of and participation in the Services, including, but not limited to, laws or regulations related to, as applicable: (i) establishing or maintaining not-for-profit status, (ii) charitable solicitations or cause-related marketing initiatives, which may be referred to as “commercial co-venturer” laws, (iii) unclaimed property, (iv) the use of information about individuals. You further represent and warrant that you own or have secured all necessary rights and licenses for use of all elements of the Offer and all other materials you provide to us for use in connection with the Services, including any names, trademarks, images, text, or logos, and that the use of such materials will not violate the rights of any third party.
We will also provide identifying information about you to applicable Charities in an effort to facilitate their preparation of tax substantiation letters. If you do not receive a tax substantiation letter with respect to a particular Donation, you should follow up with the applicable Charity.
We will use commercially reasonable efforts to provide notice to you of any modification to the Terms reasonably in advance of such modification taking effect. Your continued use of the Services after any such notice constitutes your acceptance of these Terms as modified. If you register for or use additional features available as a part of the Services, additional terms and conditions, rules, policies and disclaimers may apply.
