Effective April 1, 2018
This is a legal agreement between you and Snap! Mobile, Inc. You should read carefully the following terms and conditions as they govern your activities as a participant in any money-raising campaigns or activities – and any use of the platform. They require you to make certain promises, representations and warranties, and impose a variety of obligations.
Our visitors’ privacy is important to us, and we recognize the need to provide additional privacy protection for children using the Snap-Raise Platform. Our privacy practices are guided by the United States’ Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (“COPPA”), as well as data privacy laws in the United States and other applicable countries. Visitors under 18 should always check with their parents or guardians before entering information on any website or mobile application and we encourage families to discuss their household guidelines regarding the online sharing of personal information. No child under 13 may use the Platform unless and until we have received the verifiable consent of their parent or guardian and the other requirements of COPPA have been complied with.
Terms and Conditions
Snap-Raise provides a fundraising software platform (the “Platform”) that allows participants to effectively manage their fundraising campaign (the “Campaign”), harness social media for outreach, collect donations, and process fundraiser sales for their school, team, event, activity or organization (the “Beneficiary”). The Platform is accessed via the Snap-Raise website located at www.snap-raise.com (the “Website”).
Access to the Platform is predicated upon your ability to meet – and your continuing to meet - all of the requirements and standards delineated in this Agreement, and your acceptance of all of the Terms and Conditions and all other portions of this Agreement. Please note that Snap-Raise reserves the option to review any request to access the Platform and participate in a Campaign, and to deny any request for access, for any reason. If you are a participant in a Campaign subsequent to your acceptance of this Agreement – unless we have denied your request for access - you will receive an account code that will provide backend access to the Platform. You will use the provided account code to create a username and password, which will be your credentials ("Credentials"), and you will use these Credentials in order for the Platform to authenticate you as a registered user of the Platform. You can also register by using your Facebook credentials. Please note that if you register via Facebook, Snap-Raise will have access to all information related to your Facebook account - including your list of 'Facebook friends,' as permitted by Facebook's policies and Facebook’s privacy settings, and you hereby assent to any such access. If you have any questions or concerns about such access, we suggest you review Facebook's policies and your privacy 'settings and designations' prior to registering with us.
Additionally, you are prohibited from selling, trading, or otherwise transferring your Credentials to another party. You also agree to provide true, accurate, current and complete information about yourself (and any team members for whom you might submit information) during the registration process. If you provide any information that is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete (or becomes untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete) - or if we have reasonable grounds to suspect that such information is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete - we reserve the right to suspend or terminate your account and refuse any and all current or future use of the Platform (or any portion thereof). You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your Credentials. You agree to accept responsibility for all activities that occur under your account. You agree to notify us immediately by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org of any unauthorized use of your account or any other breach of security.
Participant hereby acknowledges and agrees that access to the Platform – and use of the Platform in conjunction with any Campaign or any webpages created on behalf of a Beneficiary - does not constitute a solicitation of donations by Snap-Raise. Snap-Raise does not engage in any solicitation activities on behalf of you, or any Beneficiary with which you may be involved. Additionally, you acknowledge and agree that while Snap-Raise may designate a Snap-Raise representative to be available to answer your questions, such Snap-Raise representative is solely available to answer questions related to the functionality and features of the Platform. During the Term of this Agreement you hereby agree that you shall promptly respond to any inquiries, questions or requests for updates from Snap-Raise related to your use of the Platform or other matter related to this Agreement.
If you are 13 or older but under the age of 18, we suggest that you review this Agreement – and discuss your planned use of the Platform - with your parent or guardian to make sure that your parent or guardian understands the terms and your planned participation. If you under 13, you may not use the Platform unless and until your parent or guardian understands the terms of your planned participation and the information about you to be disclosed and collected, and they provide us with their verifiable approval of your use of the Platform. If you reside in a jurisdiction that would restrict the use of this Website – or any of the functionalities or features offered via this Website or a Campaign – because of age, or restricts the ability to enter into contracts as such as this one due to age, you must abide by such age limits and you must not use the Website if you are not permitted to do so by such local jurisdiction.
In addition, you agree to abide by all applicable local, state, national, and international laws and regulations with respect to your use of the Platform. You also acknowledge and agree that use of the Internet and access to or transmissions or communications with the Platform is solely at your own risk. While Snap-Raise has endeavored to create a secure and reliable Platform, you should understand that the confidentiality of any communication or material transmitted to/from the Platform over the Internet or other form of global communication network cannot be guaranteed.
The Snap-Raise Platform provides you with the ability to upload pictures, images, photographs, videos, logos, and other content (collectively, hereinafter, the “Content”) for use in conjunction with your Campaign(s). You represent and warrant that: (i) you own the Content posted by you on the Platform or otherwise used in conjunction with any Campaign, or otherwise have the right to grant the rights and licenses set forth in this Agreement; (ii) you have all approvals and permissions required for posting or using any such Content; and (iii) the posting and use of your Content on or through the Platform does not violate, misappropriate or infringe on the rights of any third party, including, without limitation, privacy rights, publicity rights, copyrights, trademark and/or other intellectual property rights. You agree to pay for all royalties, fees, and any other monies owed for any Content you post on or through the Platform or use in conjunction with any Campaign. Additionally, if you are under the age of 13, you represent and warrant that you shall not post any pictures of yourself or anyone else under the age of 13 – or post any other information with respect to yourself or anyone else under the age of 13 – until and unless we have received a verifiable consent from your parent or guardian and from the parent or guardian of anyone else under the age of 13 whose picture or information will be posted.
With respect to any such Content, you hereby grant to Snap-Raise an irrevocable, royalty-free and fully-paid, non-exclusive, perpetual right and license throughout the world to transmit, reproduce, store, display and distribute the Content, in whole or in part, for any and all purposes. You understand and agree that the appearance of any such Content may be altered by Snap-Raise as Snap-Raise determines in its sole discretion is needed to enable such Content to be displayed on the Platform and you agree to hold harmless Snap-Raise against, to release Snap-Raise from, and not to pursue against Snap-Raise, any claim that you may have (or that you may in the future have) arising out of or related to any such alteration of any such Content or the display on the Platform of any such altered Content.

Please note that Snap-Raise may send you periodic email updates, reminders or other related messaging to the email address provided to us at registration. In addition, those email addresses that are provided for campaign outreach may receive several reminder emails during the course of an active fundraising campaign. Snap-Raise has the right, but not the obligation, to monitor your use of the Platform and any Campaigns, and any and all related activities associated with such use. Snap-Raise reserves the right, at any time and without prior notice, to suspend or terminate your account, or restrict, disable or permanently bar your use and access to the Platform (or any portion thereof) if we believe, in our sole discretion, that you have engaged, or may engage, in any of the above prohibited activities, are otherwise in violation of this Agreement, or for any other reason.
Snap-Raise has engaged the services of WePay, Inc., a payment service provider, to process all credit card donation/payment transactions and to manage the routing of applicable customer information through the credit card and electronic check processing networks. We are not affiliated with WePay. Accordingly, Snap-Raise expressly disclaims responsibility and liability for all services provided by WePay, including those related to donation/payment transactions, and you hereby agree that Snap-Raise shall not be responsible for any loss or damage of any sort incurred as a result of your use of such service.
By default, disbursement will be made via check. Within 10 business days from the end date of the Campaign, a check will be issued and sent to the Beneficiary at the mailing address provided or delivered by a Snap-Raise representative. Snap-Riase’s applicable Service Fees will be deducted from the amount delivered to the Beneficiary. Please note that any such bank account designated to receive the funds must be in your Beneficiary’s name.
As a donor you hereby acknowledge and agree that, for all donations/payment transactions, (1) you will not use an invalid or unauthorized credit or debit card or other payment method; (2) all donations/payment transactions are final and non-refundable once a campaign has ended; and (3) all donations are made as unrestricted gifts to the indicated Beneficiary. If you have any questions regarding any payment transaction, please contact us by email at email@example.com.
Additionally, Snap-Raise makes no representations or warranties as to whether any portion of your donation is tax deductible as a charitable contribution. It is the responsibility of the donor to confirm if the Beneficiary is a qualified organization.
You acknowledge and agree that all funds raised by Participants will be disbursed according to the option selected by the Beneficiary.
Access to the Platform is provided by Snap-Raise, and this Agreement provides to you a personal, revocable, limited, non-exclusive, royalty-free, non-transferable license to access and use the Platform in strict accordance with all the terms of this Agreement. Your use of the Platform and any services, tools, materials or information made available through the Platform is conditioned on your continued compliance with this Agreement.

In addition to the miscellaneous section below, the provisions concerning Snap-Raise’s proprietary rights, indemnity, disclaimers of warranty, limitation of liability, and governing law will survive the termination of this Agreement for any reason.
While snap-raise endeavors to provide a reliable and functional platform and related services, the platform, services and any information or assistance that may be provided by a snap-raise representative are provided on an "as-is" and "as available" basis and may include errors, omissions, or other inaccuracies. You assume the sole risk of making use and/or relying on the platform, services, information and assistance. Snap-raise expressly disclaims all warranties and conditions with respect to the platform and all elements thereof, whether implied, express, or statutory, including the implied Warranites of Merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, title, non-infringement of third-party rights, satisfactory quality, quiet enjoyment and accuracy, or any other implied warranty, including any warranty pursuant to the uniform computer information transactions act as enacted by any state.

You assume all risks of using the platform.
All content related to any Campaign including any descriptions or information regarding an organization is being provided by the end users of our Platform, and we neither edit nor verify any of such content. The inclusion of any such organization in a Campaign or on the Website should not be viewed as an endorsement or recommendation of any kind, and we do not make any warranty or guarantee as to the truthfulness of any statements concerning the organization, or the worthiness, good standing, or financial health of any such organization. We also make no promises as to how any donations may be used by the organization. We do not monitor or control any of the organizations activities, and we shall not be responsible, in any manner or form, for the use or non-use of any funds or donations given to any such organizations. All content and other information is provided on an 'as is' or 'as available' basis, and Snap-Raise expressly disclaims all warranties and conditions with respect to the Website, any campaign, any content and all elements thereof, whether implied, express, or statutory, including the implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, title, non-infringement of third-party rights, satisfactory quality, quiet enjoyment and accuracy, or any other implied warranty under the Uniform Computer Information Transactions Act as enacted by any state, or any similar law.

Under no circumstances shall snap-raise (and its successors, assigns, parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, officers, directors, agents, developers, networks, and distributors) be liable for (i) any direct, indirect, punitive, incidental, special, exemplary, or consequential damages or any damages whatsoever including, without limitation, damages for loss of use, data, business or profits (including loss of donations) that result from the use of, or the inability to use, the platform or any of the services, (ii) any action taken in connection with an investigation by snap-raise or law enforcement authorities regarding your or any other party's use of the platform, (iii) any action taken in connection with, or related to, copyright or other intellectual property or its owners, (iv) any errors or omissions in the platform’s operation, (v) any damage to your mobile device or other equipment or technology (including, without limitation, damage from any security breach or from any virus, bugs, tampering, fraud, error, omission, interruption, defect, delay in operation or transmission, computer line or network failure) or (vi) any other technical or other malfunction, including, without limitation, loss of goodwill, whether in an action of contract, negligence, strict liability, tort or any other action. In no event will snap-raise be liable to you or anyone else for death or personal injury, even if the possibility of such damages has been advised, and even if a remedy set forth herein is found to have failed its essential purpose. Applicable law may not allow the limitation or exclusion of liability for exemplary, incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you. By accessing and using the platform, you expressly agree to the allocation of risk set forth herein; if you do not agree to this allocation of risk, you must not access or use the platform. If you are a California resident, you waive your rights with respect to California civil code section 1542, which says "a general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which, if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor."
Please note that the Snap-Raise Platform does not support – and does not allow – any Campaigns for Beneficiaries domiciled outside of the United States. If you are raising funds for a U.S. Campaign from outside of the U.S., please be aware that your use of the Platform requires that you comply with all applicable federal and state U.S. laws. You further agree to comply with all applicable laws regarding the transmission of data exported from the United States or the country in which you reside.

We make no representations that the Website, any Campaigns, and any and all information contained therein, including the Content, are appropriate, available or legal in any particular location. The Website and any Campaign is not intended for access or use by any person or entity in any jurisdiction or country where such distribution or use would be contrary to law or regulation or which would subject Snap-Raise to any registration requirement within such jurisdiction or country. You hereby acknowledge and agree that you are choosing to access the Website and any Campaign on your own initiative and that you are responsible for compliance with all applicable international, federal, state, local and any other applicable laws, statutes, ordinances and regulations regarding your use of the thereof.
You hereby acknowledge and agree that this Agreement is subject to periodic revisions at the sole discretion of Snap-Raise. If any modification is unacceptable to you, your only recourse is to immediately cease using or accessing the Platform, and you can also provide notice of your termination of this Agreement by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Your continued access or use of the Platform following our change will constitute binding acceptance of the change.
Participant recognizes and acknowledges that a breach of his or her obligations pursuant to this Agreement may cause irreparable and material loss and damage to Snap-Raise and/or its affiliates, the amount of which cannot be determined readily and as to which Snap-Raise and/or its affiliates will not have an adequate remedy at law or in damages. Accordingly, in addition to any remedy Snap-Raise and/or its affiliates may have in damages by an action at law, Snap-Raise and/or its affiliates shall be entitled to the issuance of an injunction restraining any such breach or threatened breach or any other remedy at law or in equity for any such breach.
During the Term of this Agreement and for three (3) years after termination, Participant agrees not to disclose any Confidential Information (as hereinafter defined) obtained from Snap-Raise to any other person or entity. As used herein, “Confidential Information” means information that is identified (orally or in writing) as confidential or is of such a nature that a reasonable person would understand such information to be confidential. Confidential Information shall not include information (i) generally known to the public, (ii) already known, through legal means, to the party receiving the information, or (iii) legally obtained from a third party who obtained it without violation of a duty of confidentiality to Snap-Raise.
Successors and Assigns
The rights and obligations of a Party under this Agreement shall inure to the benefit of and shall be binding upon the successors and assigns of that Party. Participant may not assign its rights, subcontract or otherwise delegate its obligations under this Agreement without Snap-Raise’s prior written consent. Snap-Raise may directly or indirectly assign its rights, or subcontract or otherwise delegate its obligations, under this Agreement at any time, by contract or by operation of law.
Snap-Raise shall not be liable for any failure or delay in performance due in whole or in part to any cause beyond the reasonable control of Snap-Raise including a delay in services from its contractors, agents or suppliers, including but not limited to utility or transmission failures, power failure, strikes or other labor disturbances, acts of God, acts of war or terror, floods, sabotage, fire, natural or other disasters.
All provisions that by their nature are intended to survive, including but not limited to disclaimers of warranties, confidentiality obligations and limitations of liability provisions, shall survive the termination of this Agreement. All other provisions shall be of no further force or effect upon termination, provided that all such provisions shall survive to the limited extent necessary for your Campaign to be completed (including completing any and all transactions with any lead(s) provided pursuant to this Agreement), whether during the Term of this Agreement or any time subsequent to such Term.
Any notice required or permitted by this Agreement shall be in writing and shall be delivered as follows, with notice deemed given as indicated: (a) by personal delivery, when delivered personally; (b) by overnight courier, upon written verification of receipt; (c) by telecopy or facsimile transmission, upon acknowledgment of receipt of electronic transmission; (d) by certified or registered mail, return receipt requested, upon verification of receipt, or (e) only in the case of a Campaign, via email to the email address provided for Snap-Raise. Any email notice sent to Snap-Raise shall be sent to: email@example.com.
Relationship of the Parties
Nothing in this Agreement will create any franchise, joint venture, sales representative, or employment relationship between the Parties. Participant shall not have any authority to act for or to bind Snap-Raise or any of its affiliates in any way.
This Agreement shall be governed in all respects by the laws of the United States of America and by the laws of the State of Washington. Each of the Parties irrevocably consents to the exclusive personal jurisdiction of the federal and state courts located in Seattle, Washington, as applicable, for any matter arising out of or relating to this Agreement, except that in actions seeking to enforce any order or any judgment of such federal or state courts located in Seattle, Washington, such personal jurisdiction shall be nonexclusive.
In the event of a dispute, the Parties shall first attempt to resolve the dispute between themselves in good faith and then, if unsuccessful, by commercial mediation. At the request of either Party, the other Party shall make itself available for mediation within thirty (30) days of the request, using the mediation rules of the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Service (“JAMS”). If the dispute cannot be resolved in this manner, the dispute shall be resolved by arbitration using the relevant arbitration rules of JAMS, and judgment upon the award rendered by the arbitration tribunal may be entered into any court having proper jurisdiction. Nothing contained herein shall prevent either Party from exercising its right to injunctive relief in any court of law having proper jurisdiction.
If any provision of this Agreement is held by a court of law to be illegal, invalid or unenforceable, (i) that provision shall be deemed amended to achieve as nearly as possible the same economic effect as the original provision and, for avoidance of doubt, if such holding of invalidity or unenforceability is based on a measure of liability, such provision shall be replaced by a legally valid measure of liability, and (ii) the legality, validity and enforceability of the remaining provisions of this Agreement shall not be affected or impaired thereby.
No term or provision hereof will be considered waived by a Party, and no breach excused by a Party, unless such waiver or consent is in writing signed by the Party to be charged therewith. This Agreement may be amended or modified by Snap-Raise at any time.
No Class Actions
You and snap-raise agree that any proceedings to resolve or litigate any dispute will be conducted solely on an individual basis, and that neither you nor snap-raise will seek to have any dispute heard as a class action, a representative action, a collective action, a private attorney-general action, or in any proceeding in which you or snap-raise acts or proposes to act in a representative capacity. You and snap-raise further agree that no proceeding will be joined, consolidated, or combined with another proceeding without the prior written consent of you, snap-raise, and all parties to any such proceeding.
Snap-Raise welcomes your questions or comments regarding the Terms and Conditions:
