8. PROJECTS AND FUNDRAISING
By creating an event or a fundraising project (“Project”) on GoPurpose, you as the Project Creator are offering the public the opportunity to enter into a contract with you. By funding a Project on GoPurpose, you as the Funder accept the Project Creator’s offer and a contract between you as a Funder and the Project Creator is formed. GoPurpose is not a party to any such agreement between a Funder and a Project Creator.
By participating in any Project (including attendance at any events as part of a Project), you agree that GoPurpose shall not be responsible or liable for any loss, damage, theft or injury to property or persons, whether in contract, tort (including negligence), breach of statutory duty or otherwise, even if foreseeable, arising under or in connection with such participation, to the maximum extent permitted under applicable law.
Your participation in any events is considered “at your own risk”, and you agree to comply with all applicable laws, regulations and bye-laws, including any specific terms and conditions for a particular Project as may be prescribed by GoPurpose and/or Project Creator (subject to GoPurpose’s approval), and guidelines as may be imposed or prescribed by a venue operator. You, as a participant, further agree to indemnify GoPurpose for any loss or damage suffered by GoPurpose arising from or in connection with your participation in any event.
By creating a Project on GoPurpose, you agree to be bound by the contract between you and the Project Creator (if you are a Funder) or every Funder in relation to your Project (if you are a Project Creator), including the following terms:
9. CANCELLATION POLICY
Notwithstanding any other provision in these Terms, all amounts paid shall be non refundable with No-Show attendance (defined as the ticket holder failing to be present at any part of the event) or within 5 days of the event start date. Any refunds by GoPurpose for a paid event shall be made within 7 days of the start of the event. The event creator reserves the right of an event venue change, and as long as the event is not cancelled by the event creator, the event creator reserves the right to change the venue due to privacy from uninvited press due to over exposed or unnecessary publicity.
10. FEES AND PAYMENT
Our Site and the App is made available free of charge. However, we do charge fees for certain services, which may include organising or attending certain events. Some events will, however, be free-of-charge.
When you use a service (including organising or attending an event) that has a fee you have an opportunity to review and accept the fees that you will be charged. Changes to fees are effective after we provide you with notice by posting the changes on the Site. You are responsible for paying all fees and taxes associated with your use of such services.
All payments are processed securely through a third-party payments gateway operator, Yoopay (Yoopay.cn) (or such other third-party payments gateway operator as we may from time to time partner with). We will not be responsible for any additional service fees that may be levied or charged by such third-party payments gateway operator(s).
The funds will be disbursed to your organization at the expiry of funding period or such other time as we may notify you from time to time.
