SUMMARY OF SERVICES

FlipGive is an innovative online shopping platform that enables fundraisers (“Team Members”) to use the FlipGive Platform and our associated Services to earn cash to benefit causes they care about. Team Members do this by encouraging others (“Buyers”) to support their Fundraising Campaign (the “Team”) by taking one or more fundraising actions (each, a “Fundraising Action”). A Fundraising Action is one or more activities taken on the FlipGive Platform, or by following specific links from the FlipGive Platform, in support of Teams. Examples of Fundraising Actions include, but are not limited to, encouraging Buyers to purchase electronic vouchers, gift cards, coupons, gift certificates and other electronic certificates (collectively, “Vouchers") that can be redeemed for goods and services offered by participating companies (“Merchants”) where a percentage of the sale proceeds will go to the Team; referring Buyers to make purchases through the Merchant’s shopping site (“Shopping”) where a percentage of the sale proceeds will go to the Team; and encouraging Buyers to make a monetary donation in support of the Team.

The purpose of these Services is to support organizations and individuals who want to improve the lives of people in their communities (the “Purpose”). Examples of Services include enabling Owners “Fundraisers” to start Teams with a Merchant and to promote the sale of a selected Voucher to Buyers or to solicit donations via customized content (“Content”) on the FlipGive Platform. Team Members, Buyers and other partners (collectively, “Users” or “you”) will be able to contribute to the Content by posting comments and by submitting materials to us to include in the Content.

OBLIGATIONS OF FUNDRAISERS AND TEAMS

Teams are subject to approval by FlipGive and/or Merchant at the sole discretion of FlipGive. Teams and their beneficiaries will be considered and approved in accordance with the FlipGive Teams & Beneficiary Approval Guidelines and, in some cases, with the approval of the participating Merchant. FlipGive and Merchant reserves the right to contact any third party listed as a recipient of the raised funds to request information that will enable FlipGive and the participating Merchant to approve and to verify the validity of the Team, and such proposed recipient of funds may decline the funds raised or proposed to be raised, and at any time thereafter, any proposed or present beneficiary of any campaign may opt-out of the receipt of future funds at any time by emailing us at [email protected]

If you are a Fundraiser, your use of the Services is subject to the following additional terms and conditions:

  1. You must be a registered User to create a Team. You must use your personal account to create a Team and not use an account of another User. You must use a valid email address and keep it up to date in your User settings.

  2. As a Fundraiser, you are warranting the validity and accuracy of the Team as you have portrayed it on the FlipGive Platform and agree to in no way mislead Users as to your fundraising purpose.

  3. If your Team supports a third party, you must provide accurate, complete and updated information on that third party.

  4. You must provide full, complete payment information to direct FlipGive or its designees to send final payment. This may be in the form of name and address. If you are providing other payment information for a third party, you must obtain their consent to do so. You may use your personal address to collect funds on behalf of a third party, but FlipGive reserves the right to contact the third party directly to verify receipt of the payment within one month of issuance/

  5. Beneficiaries of the funds raised must meet the requirements outlined in the FlipGive Team & Beneficiary Approval Guideline in order to be approved. In the event that your team has raised funds but your Beneficiary does not meet these guidelines, FlipGive will contact you via email with the reason for denial. You will have the opportunity to submit an alternate beneficiary for consideration. If the second Beneficiary does not meet our guidelines, and you have already raised funds, those funds will be directed to another approved team on FlipGive platform. Only when your beneficiary is approved will you be permitted to withdraw any funds raised.

PAYMENT TO TEAMS

    (i) Revenue earned through the use of the Service to support a Team is earned revenue and represents the exact amount that will be received by the Team (“Earned Revenue”).

    (ii) Earned revenue is described on each Fundraising Action.

    (iii) Earned Revenue will be paid via check and sent to the beneficiary selected by Fundraiser during account creation.

    (iv) Earned Revenue will be paid in the relevant currency based on the chosen geographic area and based on the currency (and exchange rate then in-effect) in which the Voucher is purchased or a donation is made.

    (v) Earned Revenue will be paid in accordance with payment information provided by Fundraiser within the timeframe specified on the Team Owner’s “Payments” tab.

    (vi) The sum of all Earned Revenue will be displayed in the Team Owner’s “Payment” tab. This tab will also indicate when a payment has been sent to the Team beneficiary. Earned Revenue is considered to be earned when it is displayed on the Payment tab, subject to confirmation by relevant external commercial party.

    (vii) The “Goal Meter” will display the amount raised through actions in support of the Team. In some cases, the Goal Meter may be an approximation of the Earned Revenue as a result of adding to the Goal Meter as soon as a support action is taken. If a support action must be confirmed or verified at a later date, there may be a discrepancy between the Goal Meter and the Earned Revenue. In any such case, the amount shown in the Payment tab supersedes the amount shown in the Goal Meter.

    (viii) From time to time, the amount displayed in the Goal Meter and/or in the Payment tab may be inaccurate as a result of error. FlipGive reserves the right to correct any such error and will not be obligated to pay out any erroneously reported earned revenue.

    (ix) The Earned Revenue amount must meet or exceed the Minimum Payout Threshold. We reserve the right to update or change the Minimum Payout Threshold and will post that threshold in your Campaign’s dashboard, accessible by the Campaign/Team creator.

    (x) A withdrawal processing fee of $50 is charged for all withdrawals under $100.

EARNING ON A PERSONAL ACCOUNT

You may continue to shop and earn revenue on the FlipGive platform after your Team closes. Revenue earned after your Team closes will be held in your Personal Account. Your Personal Account is for your use only. Others cannot contribute to your Personal Account either by shopping or donating.

The funds you earn on your Personal Account must be transferred to a Team of your choice in order to withdraw the funds. There is no minimum balance required to transfer funds from a Personal Account to a Team.

In order for your Personal Account to remain active, you must raise more than $0.01 or transfer funds within a 12-month period. If you do not raise more than $0.01 or transfer funds during a 12-month period, your Personal Account will be declared inactive. Once declared inactive, FlipGive reserves the right to terminate your Personal Account which means that you will no longer be eligible to earn cash back or transfer your Earned Revenue. If your Personal Account has been terminated, FlipGive reserves the right to allocate Earned Revenue to other campaigns, contests or grants at FlipGive’s discretion.

BUYERS

If you choose to support a Team by taking a Fundraising Action through the Services, you become a Buyer and are subject to the following obligations in addition to all other terms and conditions in these Terms of Use:

    (i) All fundraising actions are at your own risk FlipGive does not and cannot guarantee that your support will be used in accordance with any fundraising purpose prescribed by a Team Organizer. We assume no responsibility to verify whether the support is used in accordance with any applicable laws; such responsibility rests solely with the Team Organizer, as applicable.

    (ii) Purchasing online directly from participating Merchants Purchases you make at participating Merchants through our site or using the FlipGive Max (a browser extension which allows you to earn cash on eligible purchases with participating Merchants) is a Fundraising Action that generates Earned Revenue. The amount of Earned Revenue is calculated on your net purchase amount, varies by Merchant and is subject to change. Please note that the net purchase amount excludes taxes, fees, shipping, gift-wrapping, discounts or credits, returns or cancellations, and extended warranties. Re-sale of items purchased from participating Merchants for commercial purposes is strictly prohibited.

    (iii) Purchasing Vouchers online Vouchers (which includes gift cards) you purchase through the FlipGive Platform as a User are offers that you purchase from participating Merchants through our Service that supports Teams. The Vouchers are redeemable for certain goods, services or experiences offered by, or facilitated through, the Merchant identified on the Voucher. The Merchant is solely responsible for redeeming the Voucher. The Merchant is the issuer of the Voucher and is fully responsible for all goods and services it provides to you and for any and all injuries, illnesses, damages, claims, liabilities and costs (“Losses”) it may cause you to suffer, directly or indirectly, in full or in part, whether related to the use or redemption of a voucher or not. You waive and release FlipGive and its subsidiaries, affiliates, suppliers (including Payment Card Networks (as defined below) and payment processors), partners, officers, directors, employees and agents from any Losses arising from or related to any act or omission of a Merchant in connection with your use of a Voucher or the goods or services it provides in connection therewith.

    By purchasing any Voucher you agree to the Terms of Sale listed on Voucher. By purchasing, viewing a mobile version, printing, accepting, using or attempting to use any Voucher, you agree to such Terms of Sale (“Rules”) and any additional, deal specific terms advertising the Voucher at the time of purchase (collectively, the “Fine Print”, regardless of how labeled). These Rules apply to all Vouchers that we make available, unless a particular Voucher’s Fine Print states otherwise, and except as otherwise required by law. In the event of a conflict between these Rules and the Fine Print, the Fine Print will prevail.

    Vouchers specify two separate values: (a) the amount paid for the Voucher and (b) the give value, which is the amount paid to the Team benefiting from the offer (the “Give Value”). For example, if you pay $20 for a Voucher that gives $8 to a Team, the Give Value is $8, the amount paid is $20.If a Merchant or venue refuses to honor any Voucher, FlipGive will refund the amount paid upon request in the original form of payment, or will credit the FlipGive account of the Buyer with an equivalent amount, in either cash or currency related to a future loyalty program less the Give Value and less any transaction fees or loss on exchange rate incurred. For example, if you pay $20 for a Voucher that gives $8 to a Team, the refund amount will be $12 less transaction fees to the Buyer.

    FlipGive, the Merchants and other Users and partners will not be responsible for any lost or stolen Vouchers.

    You will not directly or indirectly purchase any Vouchers for goods or services through FlipGive links for resale or commercial use (of any kind) or offer any Vouchers on your website for resale or commercial use of any kind.

    (iv) Card Linking to Earn Cash Back in Stores and Restaurants

      a. Sharing your Payment Information By registering a payment card in connection with transaction monitoring, you authorize us to share your payment information with our third-party service providers (including Empyr, Inc.) and payment card networks (e.g., Visa, MasterCard, American Express) (collectively, “Payment Card Networks”). You authorize Payment Card Networks to monitor transactions on your registered card(s) to identify your purchases in order to determine whether you have qualified for or earned an offer linked to your payment card, and for Payment Card Networks to share such transaction details with Empyr and for Empyr to share such transaction details with us to enable your card-linked offer(s) and target offers that may be of interest to you (“Card Linking Program”).

      You may opt-out of the Card Linking Program at any time by logging into your FlipGive account and clicking LINKED CREDIT CARDS with the MY ACCOUNT page and clicking “delete” next to the payment card. You must repeat this process for every card you wish to delete.

      If you register a debit card, your transaction must be processed as a credit (i.e., signature) transaction to make sure the transaction can be monitored. Do not use a PIN when paying for your purchases with your enrolled card if you want the transaction to be eligible for rewards or offer completion through the Card Linking Program.

      There is a $250 cashback limit per transaction.

      d. Double Enrolment Restrictions

      We use Empyr as our service provider to help us operate the Card Linking Program. Your payment cards may only be enrolled in one program operated by Empyr. If you have already activated a payment card with a separate program operated by Empyr, you will be unable to activate that payment card with both our Card Linking Program and the other program. You may use another payment card with FlipGive or deactivate your card with the other program.

If someone clicks your link and takes a qualifying action, we may attribute that referral to you for purposes such as awarding reward credit. The FlipGive referral program is available only for Teams. In order to refer another Team to FlipGive you must do it through a Team page, not your Personal Account.
