Participant Fundraising Fees
The Service serves as an intermediary between Participants and Supporters. ShopRaise allows Participants to create customized websites to raise money for a wide variety of causes (each, a "Portal"). ShopRaise makes no representations or warranties regarding the accuracy of any information contained in Participants' profiles or Portals. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, ShopRaise does not warrant: (i) that the information on a Participant's profile or Portal is an accurate description of the Participant or a real person or organization; (ii) that the information on a Portal is an accurate description of the fundraising cause, the Participant's intended use of funds raised, or that the cause exists; or (iii) that a Participant who raises funds for a cause will use the funds in the manner specified on their Portal. Participants may use the Service to contact current and potential Supporters to raise funds as described below.
Online Transactions with Merchants. The Service enables Supporters to order and receive products and services directly from businesses that are not owned or operated by ShopRaise ("Merchants"). A Participant receives a monetary contribution(s) from a Merchant when a Supporter visits the Participant's Portal, is directed to the Merchant's website from the Portal, and purchases products and services on the Merchant's website. If the Supporter does not access a Merchant's website through a method that may be tracked such as the Participant's Portal or ShopRaise browser extension, the Participant will not receive a contribution from the Merchant.
ShopRaise is not responsible for setting or maintaining the amount of the contributions offered by any Merchant or for requirements of any Merchant's network or offer. Merchants have the right to change at any time, and without notice, the amount or percentage of any contributions it offers as well as the terms and conditions of any qualifying purchase and/or the availability of any particular offer. Your continued use of the Service thereafter will constitute acceptance of such terms and conditions. ShopRaise does not represent or warrant that any particular Merchant will participate in the Service at the time you register for the Service or at any time thereafter, or that any specific offer will be available at any time. Merchants may impose conditions or restrictions different from, or in addition to, those described on Portals. We do not represent or warrant, or give any assurances that any Merchant will provide a contribution for any particular transaction even where such transaction would appear to qualify for such contribution. We are not responsible for the failure of any Merchant to pay contributions in accordance with the terms of that Merchant's offer. Further, your participation in offers or promotions of, or correspondence with, any Merchant is solely between you and that Merchant. We do not assume any liability, obligation or responsibility for any part of any such correspondence, offer or promotion, including without limitation the withdrawal or modification of any such offer or promotion.
Merchants may use third parties to process payments associated with any order, which may result in certain charges to you. In addition, certain affiliate tracking companies may be used for certain transactions associated with the Service which may result in certain charges to you. If you are a Supporter, you agree that you are solely responsible to Merchants and/or third party processors and/or affiliate tracking companies for all payments and associated fees and charges related to any orders you submit. Please note that we provide notice to our users regarding any fees directly charged by ShopRaise for the Service, but we take no responsibility regarding any third-party charges of any kind.
