Effective June 16, 2012
RĀZ Mobile may discontinue or alter any aspect of the Website, remove Content from the Website, disable or alter functionality of the Website or the Donor Services, restrict the time the Website or the Donor Services are available or restrict the amount of use permitted at RĀZ Mobile’s sole discretion and without prior notice or liability. You agree that RĀZ Mobile may suspend your account and/or your access to the Website, the Donor Services, or any part thereof, at any time and for any reason. You further agree that such measures shall be taken in RĀZ Mobile’s sole discretion and without liability to you or any third party.
To receive access to certain aspects of the Website and make use of the Donor Services, you may be asked to register an account. In the event you agree to register an account, you will select and/or receive a personal, 4 digit PIN or other secure passcode that, when combined with your mobile number, comprises a secure username and password combination. This account is personal to you, and you will not share it or allow any other person to utilize your account. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your username and password and are fully responsible for all activities that occur under your username and password. You agree to immediately notify RAZ Mobile in the event (a) your registration information changes, or (b) you learn of or have reason to suspect any unauthorized use of your account or any other breach of security. You also agree that you will provide truthful and accurate information during the registration process.
When you send, donate or otherwise transfer value to recipients identified by you (“Recipients”) via the Website (a “Donation”), the Recipient is not required to accept it. You agree that you will not hold RĀZ Mobile liable for any damages resulting from a Recipient's decision to not accept a Donation made through the Donor Services. RĀZ Mobile collects a service charge from your intended organization for the transaction processing, payment processing, website hosting, website upkeep, validation of Recipients and other services it provides.
The Donor Services allow you to select Recipients and fund Donations via credit card or other authorized transaction method, via either RĀZ Mobile or its designated third-party payment processor (“Payment”). Such Payments are then transferred to the accounts of the Recipients. RĀZ Mobile may utilize the services of certain third-party payment processors to process payments of credit cards and other accepted methods of payment. Your Payment, and its processing, is subject to any additional terms and conditions imposed by such third-party payment processors. The Donation amount and applicable fees or taxes, if any, shall be applied to your chosen method of payment upon submission of your Payment. By making such Payments, you hereby agree that RĀZ Mobile has no responsibility, and shall have no liability, for any claim related to your Payments on such third-party websites or your Donation to a Recipient. The availability of the Donor Services altogether and the availability for specific Recipients is subject to change and/or discontinuance.
When you make a Payment, you are providing RAZ Mobile with authorization to process your Payment and complete the transaction. The Payment may be held by RAZ Mobile until the final processing of your Payment. The processing of some transactions may be delayed for a variety of reasons, including the pending authorization and validation of Recipients’ credentials and approval as a qualifying Recipient. In such an instance, any such authorization for the processing of your Payment will remain valid for up to thirty (30) days after you provide it.
You are responsible for confirming the accuracy of the information you provide about each Payment you send, specifically including, without limitation, the identifying information of the Recipient and the amount of any Payment you submit. RAZ Mobile will endeavor to identify and correct errors when and where possible, but RAZ Mobile is not able to verify the accuracy of your selection of intended Recipient; therefore, you are solely responsible for the accuracy of all information submitted.
It is your responsibility to determine what, if any, tax implications apply to the Payments you make, and it is your responsibility to collect, report and remit the correct tax information to the appropriate taxing authorities. RAZ Mobile is not responsible for determining whether taxes apply to your transaction, or for collecting, reporting or remitting any taxes arising from any transaction. You acknowledge that RAZ Mobile may report to the appropriate taxing authority the total amount of Payments you process.
You agree that you will not receive interest or other earnings on the funds that RAZ Mobile handles as your agent. In consideration for your use of the Donor Services, you irrevocably transfer and assign to RAZ Mobile any ownership right that you may have in any interest that may accrue on funds held in pooled accounts awaiting final distribution to Recipients. This assignment applies only to interest earned on your funds, and nothing in this Agreement grants RAZ Mobile any ownership right to the principal of the funds you maintain with RAZ Mobile.
You may submit messages to Recipients via the Website. By submitting such messages via the Website, you hereby grant to RAZ Mobile a limited, transferable, nonexclusive, worldwide, perpetual, royalty-free and fully-paid license to use, reproduce, publish, display and distribute such messages.
In the event agree to have RAZ Mobile store your payment information for future donations, you hereby grant RAZ Mobile a limited, transferable, nonexclusive, worldwide, revocable, royalty-free and fully-paid license to provide such information to Recipients with which you have developed or will develop a relationship in order to process your Donations and/or Payments. RAZ Mobile shall use industry standards to securely protect such information.
Refunds and Disputing Charges
All donations processed by RAZ Mobile are processed directly to the Recipient’s merchant account. The statement for your credit card or other accepted method of payment will reflect a single payment to the Recipient, which will be specifically identified by name. RAZ Mobile will not process credits or chargebacks to Recipient’s merchant account on your behalf. You must directly contact your credit card or other payment method provider to request a refund or dispute any charges.
You acknowledge that the Website may contain or provide access to information, software, photos, video, text, graphics, music, sounds or other material provided by RAZ Mobile or third parties (collectively, “Content”) that are protected by copyrights, patents, trademarks, trade secrets or other intellectual property laws, and that these rights are valid and protected in all forms, media and technologies existing now or hereafter developed.
Content posted by users via the Website is the intellectual property of the specific users of the Website who post such Content and their licensors, if any. RAZ Mobile does not claim any ownership rights in such Content posted by its users. RAZ Mobile does not generally monitor or otherwise remove such Content after it is posted on the Website by its users except under certain limited circumstances as required or permitted by law or otherwise in the sole discretion of RAZ Mobile.
Mobile Alerts & Updates
RAZ Mobile clients may from time to time send mobile update messages (“Mobile Alerts”) to those donors who have opted to receive mobile alerts and join their mobile network. This SMS service is operated by RAZ Mobile and supported by AT&T, Alltel, Boost, Cellular One Dobson, Sprint, Nextel, T-Mobile, US Cellular and Verizon Wireless. Messages and data charges may apply, and are your sole responsibility. Please contact your wireless carrier for pricing details if you have any questions regarding your plan's specific rates.
You agree that use, access or receipt of our Mobile Alerts is at your own discretion and risk, and that you will be solely responsible for any damage to your mobile device and any injury and/or loss of data that results from the use of our Mobile Alerts or from your inability to access or receive our Mobile Alerts.
In the event that you wish for Mobile Alerts to stop from any RAZ Mobile client, you can simply text “STOP” to the relevant mobile number, and future messages will be terminated from that specific number.
For all Donations made on the Website, you agree that you: (i) will not use an invalid or unauthorized credit card or other payment method to make a Payment; (ii) are solely responsible for selecting the correct Recipient to receive Donations; and (iii) all Donations are made as unrestricted gifts to the entity of your choice and that such funds may not be specified for any particular purpose or limited in any way.
RAZ Mobile uses reasonable efforts to maintain the Website and the Donor Services, but RAZ Mobile is not responsible for any defects or failures associated with the Website or the Donor Services, any part thereof, any Content posted using the Website or any damages (such as lost profits or other consequential damages) that may result from any such defects or failures. The Website may be inaccessible or inoperable for any reason, including, without limitation: (a) equipment malfunctions, (b) periodic maintenance procedures or repairs which RAZ Mobile may undertake from time to time, (c) delays in processing of Payments by third-party processors or (d) causes beyond the control of RAZ Mobile or which are not foreseeable by RAZ Mobile.
RAZ Mobile does not necessarily approve, endorse, sanction, encourage, verify or agree with any message posted by its users or otherwise embodied in the Content. You understand that by using the Website, you may be exposed to Content that may be offensive, indecent, vulgar, defamatory or otherwise objectionable, and that in no way shall RAZ Mobile be liable under any theory for such exposure.
Although RAZ Mobile provides a network of non-profit organizations and charities to which you can make mobile donations, RAZ Mobile makes no representation as to whether all, or any portion, of a Donation is able to be excluded or deducted on your or any other tax return. RAZ Mobile will have no liability or responsibility for any claim by any federal, state, local, foreign or any other taxing authority with respect to the characterization of any Donation made by you. You should consult with a tax advisor regarding the implications and treatment of all or any portion of your Donation.
All transactions are between you and such applicable Recipients or other third parties, and RAZ Mobile shall not be liable for your interactions with any Recipient or other third party on or through the Website or the Donor Services. RAZ Mobile has no obligation to become involved in any dispute between you and a Recipient or other third party, and shall not be liable for any damage or loss incurred by you, a Recipient or other third party.
