If you are a campaign organizer (as defined below) based in the United States, you will be contracting with iBuddy Club, Inc. We do not do business outside of the USA at this date.

We will also endeavor to notify you, either through the Services user interface, in an email notification or through other reasonable means, and unless otherwise stated, iBC may communicate with you officially by any reasonable means now known or later developed. These currently include email, regular mail, and postings on the Platform.

Finally, we encourage you, particularly if you intend to donate to an iBC or powered by iBC campaign, to review the Fees section of these Terms of Service.
ACCESS AND USE OF THE SERVICES
Services Description: The Services are offered as a platform to users of the Services, which may include Campaign Organizers, Individuals 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 "Campaign Organizer") to post and solicit a fundraising campaign ("Campaign") to the Platform to send a savings app and accept monetary donations ("Donations") from those registered users wishing to contribute funds to the App and contribute to the the Campaign ("Donors"). For purposes hereof, the term "Campaign Organizer" shall also be deemed to include any individual(s) designated as a beneficiary of a Campaign. Although there are no fees to set up a Campaign, a percentage of each Donation will be charged as fees for our Services. Please see our Fees section for details.
Charitable Giving: Campaigns are not charities to which you can make tax-deductible charitable contributions. However, in addition to the Services described above, iBC permits Donors to contribute directly to certain charitable organizations ("Charities") through the Extra Donation and Plu$1 Platform. Any donation you make to a Charity through the Platform will be subject to a Services fee as. You understand and acknowledge, however, that iBuddy Club, Inc. is not a charity. If you or your charity would like to register to be listed as a charitable organization on the Platform, please contact us at support@iBuddyClub.com and we can help facilitate that process. As used in this Agreement, the term "Campaign" does not refer to a Charity, and you acknowledge that contributions to Campaigns are not deductible under your jurisdictions, applicable tax laws and regulations.
The Services are a Platform; We are not a Broker, Financial Institution, Creditor or Charitable
Institution: The Services are an administrative platform only. iBC facilitates the Donation transaction between Campaign Organizers and Donors, but is not a party to any agreement between a Campaign Organizer and a Donor, or between any user and a Charity. iBC is not a broker, agent, financial institution, creditor or insurer for any user. iBC has no control over the conduct of, or any information provided by, a Campaign Organizer or a Charity, and iBC hereby disclaims all liability in this regard to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law.
iBC does not guarantee that a Campaign or a Charity will obtain a certain amount of Donations or any Donations at all. We do not personally endorse any Campaign, Campaign Organizer, or Charity, 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, Campaign Organizer, or Charity.
We do not and cannot verify the information that Campaign Organizers supply, nor do we guarantee that the Donations will be used in accordance with any fundraising purpose prescribed by a Campaign Organizer or Charity. We assume no responsibility to verify whether the Donations are used in accordance with any applicable laws; such responsibility rests solely with the Campaign Organizer or Charity, 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 Campaign Organizer or Charity is not raising or using the funds for their stated purpose, please contact us on the Campaign or Charity to alert our team of this potential issue and we will investigate.
You, as a Campaign Organizer, represent, warrant, and covenant that (i) all information you provide in connection with a Campaign is accurate, complete, and not otherwise designed to mislead, defraud, or deceive any user; (ii) all Donations contributed to your Campaign will be used solely as described in the materials that you post; (iii) you will comply with your jurisdiction’s applicable laws and regulations when you solicit funds, particularly, but not limited to, laws relating to your marketing and solicitation for your project; and (iv) to the extent you share with us any personal data of any third party for any purpose, including the names, email addresses and phone numbers of your personal contacts, you have the authority (including any necessary consents), as required under applicable law, to provide us with such personal data and allow us to use such personal data for the purposes for which you shared it with us. You authorize iBC, and iBC reserves the right to, provide information relating to your Campaign with donors and beneficiaries of your Campaign, and with law enforcement or to assist in any investigation.
Taxes: It is your responsibility to determine what, if any, taxes apply to the Donations you receive through your use of the Services. It is solely your responsibility to assess, collect, report or remit the correct tax, if any, to the appropriate tax authority.
Member Account, Password and Security: You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password and account, if any, and are fully responsible for any and all activities that occur under your password or account. You agree to (a) immediately notify iBC of any unauthorized use of your password or account or any other breach of security, and (b) ensure that you sign out from your account at the end of each session when accessing the Services. iBC will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to comply with this Section.
Modifications to Services: iBC reserves the right to modify, suspend or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, the Services (or any part thereof). We will endeavor to give you notice of any such modification, suspension or discontinuance. You agree that, to the extent permitted by law, iBC will not be liable to you for any modification, suspension or discontinuance of the Services in accordance with these Terms of Service.
Public Display of Donations: As a Donor, you have the option to publicly display your Donation for all to see in The With Gratitude Section, including on search engines (like Google and Yahoo). To keep the details of your Donation private, simply click the "Private" checkbox during the Donation process.
General Practices Regarding Use and Storage: You acknowledge that iBC may establish general practices and limits concerning use of the Services, including without limitation the maximum period of time that data or other content will be retained by the Services and the maximum storage space that will be allotted on iBC's servers on your behalf. You agree that iBC has no responsibility or liability for the deletion or failure to store any data or other content maintained or uploaded by the Services. You acknowledge that iBC reserves the right to terminate accounts or Campaigns that are inactive for an extended period of time, provided that iBC will use its commercially reasonable efforts to provide a Campaign Organizer with reasonable notice before terminating an inactive Campaign having a positive balance of Donations. You further acknowledge that iBC reserves the right to change these general practices and limits at any time, in its sole discretion. We will endeavor to give you notice of any such change where required by applicable law.
Mobile Services: The Services include certain services that are available via a mobile device, including (i) the ability to upload content to the Platform via a mobile device, (ii) the ability to browse the Platform from a mobile device and (iii) the ability to access certain features through an application downloaded and installed on a mobile device (collectively, the "Mobile Services"). To the extent you access the Services through a mobile device, your wireless service carrier's standard charges, data rates and other fees may apply. In addition, downloading, installing, or using certain Mobile Services may be prohibited or restricted by your carrier, and not all Mobile Services may work with all carriers or devices. By using the Mobile Services, you agree that we may communicate with you regarding iBC and other entities by SMS, MMS, text message or other electronic means to your mobile device and that certain information about your usage of the Mobile Services may be communicated to us. We shall comply with any additional requirements that may apply under local laws and regulations before communicating with you in this manner. In the event that you change or deactivate your mobile telephone number, you agree to promptly update your iBC account information to ensure that your messages are not sent to the person that acquires your old number.
