ADDITIONAL TERMS OF USE FOR FUNDERS

By funding any project, you agree to the terms set forth below. These terms supplement but do not replace the Terms of Use, meaning that you continue to be subject to all of the Terms of Use. Unless otherwise defined below, capitalized terms have the meanings given to them in the Terms of Use.

As a Funder, you agree as follows:

  1. Any contract is between you and the Product Developer whose project you have decided to fund. The Company is not a party to that contract.
  2. The Company does not guaranty that the Product Developer will fulfill any promise to you, including any promise to provide rewards.
  3. The Company does not guaranty that the project you fund will be successful.
  4. The Company has not reviewed the project to determine whether it is commercially viable. Inevitably, given the speculative nature of product development, many or even most of the projects listed on the Site will fail.
  5. Although the Company seeks to have only viable, “real” companies conduct campaigns, it is possible that some Product Developers will be non-viable or even fraudulent. We suggest that before making pledge, your conduct your own investigation of the Product Developer. The Company will not refund your pledge in this or any other situation (except if you have pledged money to a campaign that is not successful).
  6. The only financial benefit you will receive by contributing money to the Product Developer is the reward offered by the Product Developer, which may be of negligible value. You will not receive any stock or other financial interest in the Product Developer, or the right to acquire any stock or other financial interest. That means that the Product Developer could become very valuable and profitable in part as a result of your pledge, but you will not share in any financial upside. Similarly, you will not acquire any interest in the Company.
  7. You understand that the Company charges Product Developers for campaigns conducted on the Site. You also understand that the Company might have other financial relationships with Product Developers, including but not limited to ownership interests.
  8. You will provide your payment information at the time you pledge to a project. The payment will be collected at or after the project deadline and only if the amount of money pledged as of the deadline is at least equal to the fundraising goal. The amount you pledge is the amount you will be charged.
  9. You consent to the Company and its payments partners authorizing or reserving a charge on your payment card or other payment method for any amount up to the full pledge at any time between the pledge and collection of the funds.
  10. You promise to have sufficient funds or credit available at the project deadline to ensure that your pledge will be collectible.
  11. You may increase, decrease, or cancel your pledge at any time, except you may not cancel or reduce your pledge during the last 24 hours of a campaign if it would drop the campaign below its goal.
  12. The estimated delivery date listed on each reward is not a promise to fulfill by that date, but is merely an estimate of when the Product Developer hopes to fulfill.
  13. If you pledge to a campaign, the Company will give the Product Developer your User ID and pledge amount. If the campaign is successful, the Company will also give the Product Developer your name and email.
  14. For some rewards, the Product Developer needs further information from Funders, such as a mailing address or t-shirt size, to enable the Product Developer to deliver the rewards. The Product Developer shall request the information directly from you at some point after the fundraising campaign is successful. To receive the reward, you must provide the requested information to the Product Developer within a reasonable amount of time.
  15. The Company does not offer refunds. A Product Developer is not required to grant a Funder’s request for a refund unless the Product Developer is unable or unwilling to fulfill the reward. Even then, your claim will be solely against the Product Developer, not against the Company.
  16. Product Developers may cancel or refund a Funder’s pledge at any time and for any reason, and if they do so, are not required to fulfill the reward.
  17. The Company may cancel a pledge (and thus the reward) at any time and for any reason.
  18. The Company reserves the right to reject, cancel, interrupt, remove, or suspend a campaign at any time and for any reason. If you have pledged to a campaign that the Company terminates, you will not be charged for your pledge and/or will get your money back.
  19. Pledges made to Product Developers are not tax-deductible. You should consult with your own tax advisor as to the proper tax treatment.

ADDITIONAL TERMS OF USE FOR PRODUCT DEVELOPERS

By launching a campaign on the Site, you agree to the terms set forth below. These terms supplement but do not replace the Terms of Use, meaning that you continue to be subject to all of the Terms of Use. Unless otherwise defined below, capitalized terms have the meanings given to them in the Terms of Use.

As a Project Developer, you agree as follows:

  1. You will not use the information provided by Funders or other Users for any purpose other than to conduct your campaign. You will not disclose such information to any third party.
  2. Any contract is between you and your Funders. The Company is not a party to those contracts.
  3. You will not post any information that is inaccurate or misleading.
  4. Following a successful campaign, you will promptly provide the rewards you have promised to Funders.
  5. Because Funders could fail to contribute the pledged amount, the Company cannot guarantee that you will receive the entire amount pledged.
  6. You acknowledge that the Company has disclosed to you its fee structure.
  7. The Company and its payment partners will deduct their fees before transmitting proceeds of a campaign. Fees may vary depending on region and other factors.
  8. The Company may cancel a pledge at any time and for any reason.
  9. The Company may use your name in its own advertising, e.g., advertising the success of your campaign.
  10. The Company may reject, cancel, interrupt, remove, or suspend a campaign at any time and for any reason, and will not be liable to you for any damages you incur as a result. The Company is not required to tell you its reasons for any of those actions.
  11. There is no guaranty that your campaign will be successful. The Company has made and will make no promise that your campaign will be successful.
  12. Although the Company may make suggestions concerning the development of your project, these suggestions are made without consideration and the Company makes no promises that they will be complete, effective, or accurate. The Company is not acting as a consultant or advisor to you, but only providing the Service of placing your campaign on the Site. YOU SHOULD NOT RELY ON SUGGESTIONS MADE BY THE COMPANY FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF YOUR PRODUCT. Under no circumstances will the Company be liable for claims that its suggestions were erroneous, incomplete, negligent, or otherwise defective.
  13. While your campaign is active, you will not conduct campaigns on any other site, including but not limited to Kickstarter or Indiegogo. Further, if your campaign at the Site is successful and you decide to conduct another campaign in the future, you will seek first to conduct that campaign at the Site rather than any of its competitors.

Product Funder is a platform where companies or individuals (“Product Developers”) run campaigns to fund the development of products by offering rewards to raise money from certain users of the Site (“Funders”).
