There are a few definitions we’d like to get out of the way. A User is any individual who accesses the Site and uses the Service, regardless of whether it is on their own personal behalf or on the behalf of a Brand, Cause or Promoter. A User can be an individual challenge participant (“Participant”), an individual who contributes (“Sponsors”) a donation to a challenge campaign (“Cause”), the organizer of their own Cause or the (“Promoter”), marketing coordinator of campaigns. A Cause might more often be an organized not-for-profit, individual, charitable fund, governmental organization, or other entity but not necessarily so. A Verified Cause is one that has been verified via 501C3 status. Likewise, much of the time the Sponsor (“Brand”) of a challenge campaign will be a company, corporation, individual, government organization or charitable fund that has agreed to Sponsor the donation based on each Participant’s completion of the challenge.
The Service allows Participants to direct donations by Brands in support of selected Causes as displayed in the Service. You acknowledge that the Cause that may be listed in the Site has subscribed to the Services on their own, and that SHAREITY MAKES NO REPRESENTATION OR WARRANTY REGARDING ANY PURPOSE, ITS VALIDITY, TAX-EXEMPT STATUS, OR ACCURACY OF ANY INFORMATION ABOUT THE CAUSE. Only Causes that have subscribed and agreed to the Shareity Service may receive donations from a Participant’s use of the Service.
Challenges are voluntary and elected. Shareity is not endorsing the use of the platform and or challenges for any other purpose other than raising money and/or awareness. Further Shareity does not protect or defend the integrity of any particular challenge, its purpose or outcome. Shareity does not recommend or take responsibility for any challenge ideas or their effects on society/users/causes/brands. Challenges should always be done with caution and awareness of surroundings, with regard to personal and public safety, property and human rights. Shareity is not liable for any damages or negative results from improper use of the platform by Users, Causes, Brands or Promoters, in connection with challenges or other promotional means. Always use caution when planning, implementing or participating in a challenge.
Participants may also receive benefits from a Brand, Cause, Promotor, or Shareity for completing a challenge (ie: rewards, messages, status ratings, SWAG). These rewards can be promotional material but cannot constitute SPAM. Shareity, a Brand, Cause, or Promoter may also conduct contests and/or sweepstakes through the Site, abiding by local governing laws and regulations.
We expect that each participating Brand/Sponsor/Promoter will take every reasonable care to ensure that all donations and related transactions are conducted via a secure connection. However, the security of information and payments transmitted via the internet (outside of Shareity platform) cannot be guaranteed. The Participant and Cause each acknowledges and agrees that: (i) donations are at a Brand’s own discretion; and (ii) Shareity has no liability whatsoever for (a) any loss the Participant, Brand, or Cause may suffer if a Brand fails to fulfill its donation commitment or (b) if a third party obtains unauthorized access to any information provided by the User.
Each Brand and Cause licenses to Shareity any trademarks, trade names, logos and any other content it uploads to the Site for the challenge campaign (“Campaign Content”). Each Brand and Cause represents and warrants that it has all requisite rights to upload such content and shall indemnify Shareity for any expenses or losses arising from a third party’s claim that Campaign Content infringes its intellectual property rights.
Each Brand, Cause, or Promoter is responsible for using the Shareity Site and the Services in compliance with all applicable laws. Shareity is not responsible for identifying, assessing, or informing Users of which laws may apply in their use of the Site and the Service. Each Brand and Cause shall indemnify Shareity for any expenses or losses arising from use of the Service in violation of the laws of a particular jurisdiction.
Each Brand and Cause commits to participating in each challenge campaign for the duration of the campaign as specified in the campaign Set Up.
