  6. YOUR CONTENT. You are solely responsible for all data, information, and other content (such as text, audio, video, photographs, illustrations, graphics, testimonials, or any personal, financial, credit card, or transaction information), including your User Account ID and Registration Information, that You provide or generate through Your access and use of the Platform, Content, or Services (collectively, “Your Content”).  As between You and G1VE, You retain ownership of Your Content.  However, subject to any limitations included in the Privacy Policy, You grant G1VE and its service providers a nonexclusive, royalty-free (unless otherwise agreed), perpetual, irrevocable, and fully sublicensable (including, without limitation, to Users and other third parties) right to use, copy, store, reproduce, modify, display, adapt, publish, translate, create derivative works from, distribute, and display (“Use”) Your Content for purposes of providing the Services to You and for use in making enhancements and improvements to the Platform.  You represent and warrant that none of Your Content or the Use of Your Content by G1VE and its service providers: (1) violates this Agreement, the Privacy Policy, or any requirements under applicable laws, rules, and regulations (“Laws”); (2) is libelous, defamatory, obscene, abusive, pornographic, threatening, or an invasion of privacy; (3) constitutes an infringement, misappropriation, or violation of the IPR or other rights of any third party; (4) is illegal in any way or advocates illegal activity; (5) is false, misleading or inaccurate; or (6) is or could be considered junk mail, spam, a part of a pyramid scheme, a disruptive commercial message or disruptive advertisement.  G1VE is not responsible or liable for any deletion, correction, destruction, damage, loss or failure to store, restore or back-up any of Your Content.  You agree that You have all right, title, interest and consent in Your Content necessary to allow G1VE and its service providers to Use Your Content as set forth in the rights and licenses You grant to G1VE under this Agreement.  You agree and acknowledge that Your Content, including financial or personal information, may be transferred to a third party located in a country that does not have adequate security controls to protect Your Content.  You are fully responsible for the security of Your Content You submit to the Platform or otherwise in Your possession or control.  You agree to comply with all Laws and, where applicable, the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS) in connection with your collection, security, and sharing of Your Content on the Platform.
  7. ACCESS.
    • To the Platform. Subject to Your compliance with this Agreement, G1VE will permit You to access and use the Platform, Content, and Services solely for lawful purposes and only in accordance with the terms of this Agreement and any other agreement You agree to with G1VE before being given access to any specific aspects of the Platform.  Any additional agreement is in addition to this Agreement and will govern Your use of the portions of the Platform to which the additional agreement applies in the event of a conflict between the terms of this Agreement and the additional agreement.
    • To Other Users. The Platform may allow You to link, connect, or otherwise communicate with other Users through the Platform.  By linking, connecting, or communicating with other Users, You are agreeing to allow those Users to communicate directly with You through the Platform.  You agree that You are solely responsible for all communications between You and any other User through the Platform.  Your extension or acceptance of a link, connection, or other communication with another User will serve as Your affirmative “opt in” to the disclosure of any of Your Content or other data or information (which may include Your personal information) that You provide to that other User.
    • To Content. Unless otherwise noted on the Platform, all Content available through the Platform, including all text, audio, video, photographs, illustrations, graphics, testimonials, and other media, is owned by G1VE, the Users providing User Content, or G1VE’s other third party providers.  You represent and warrant that You will comply with the Privacy Policy as to all Content available through the Platform.  All Content is provided for informational purposes only and You are solely responsible for verifying the accuracy, completeness, and applicability of all Content and for Your use of any Content.  Subject to Your compliance with this Agreement, You may access the Content solely for Your own personal purposes in connection with Your own use of the Platform and Services.  G1VE has not verified the accuracy of, and will not be responsible for any errors or omissions in any Content.  Each User is solely responsible for any and all of its User Content.  Because G1VE does not control User Content, You acknowledge and agree that G1VE is not responsible for any User Content.  G1VE makes no guarantees regarding the accuracy, currency, suitability, or quality of any User Content, and G1VE assumes no responsibility for any User Content.  Your interactions and transactions with other G1VE Users are solely between You and such User.  You agree that G1VE will not be responsible for any loss or damage incurred as the result of any such interactions.  If there is a dispute between You and any other User, G1VE is under no obligation to become involved.  Without limiting the foregoing, G1VE will not be held liable to You or any other third party for any Content (including Your User Content) under a Federal Law called the Communications Decency Act or CDA, 47 U.S.C. § 230.  Except as set forth in this Agreement, You are granted no licenses or other rights in or to any Content, or any IPR therein or related thereto.  If You would like to use any Content in a manner not permitted by this Agreement, please contact G1VE.
    • To Third Party Services. You understand that the Platform may require access to certain third party services (“Third Party Services”). In order to use the Platform that uses or collects data from the Third Party Services, You hereby authorize third party service providers, including Intuit (QuickBooks) and Stripe, to obtain Your Content from service providers and share it with G1VE for the Platform.  Your Content may include Your financial or personal information with service providers.  In addition, You agree that G1VE may provide Your Content to our service providers.  You represent and warrant that You have the rights and authority to provide such authorizations to G1VE and G1VE’s service providers.  In addition to the terms of this Agreement, Your access to and use of any Third Party Services is also subject to any other agreement You may agree to before being given access to the Third Party Services (each, a “Third Party Service Agreement“).  The terms of any Third Party Service Agreement (which may include payment of additional fees) will apply to the applicable Third Party Services provided under that Third Party Service Agreement in addition to the terms of this Agreement, but will not apply to any other Services You may access through G1VE.  Except as set forth in this Agreement, the terms of any Third Party Service Agreement will control in the event of a conflict between the terms of this Agreement and that Third Party Service Agreement. Among the various Third Party Services that G1VE utilizes, G1VE works with Intuit (QuickBooks) and Stripe to provide various Services to You.  If You access or use the Third Party Services, Licensee is responsible for reviewing and understanding the Third Party Service Agreement governing such Third Party Services.  You understand that G1VE has no control over the Third Party Services and that Your ability to access and use the Third Party Services may be suspended or terminated at any time, for any reason, at the service provider’s discretion.
  8. DONATIONS.
    • Charities. Not all Charities that an Organization may donate to through the Platform are charities to which You can make tax-deductible charitable contributions.  Any donation you make to an Organization through the Platform may be processed by a service provider selected by G1VE (see Access To Third Party Services above) as described in this Agreement.  You understand and acknowledge that G1VE is not a charity.  If You represent a charity eligible for tax-free contributions and would like to register to be listed as a charitable organization on the Platform, please contact us at the email address listed on the Platform.  As used in this Agreement, the term “Charities” does not refer to a specific charity, and You acknowledge that contributions to any Charities may not be deductible for U.S. federal income tax purposes as charitable contributions.  Organizations understand and agree that G1VE does not verify whether any beneficiary Charities advertised as a non-profit actually has tax-exempt status by the U.S. Internal Revenue Service or any state agency.  G1VE encourages You to double-check on the tax-exempt status of any Charity claiming to be a non-profit before donating to any Charity.
    • Making Donations. In order to contribute to an Organization, a Donor will be required to provide G1VE payment card information (credit card or debit card), mobile services account, bank transfer mechanism or ACH, or other payment method along with its Registration Information. All Organizations represent and warrant to G1VE that such payment information is true and that You are authorized to use the payment instrument provided.  You agree that all donation payments are final and cannot be refunded under any circumstances.   G1VE does not warrant that donations will be used for any particular purpose and is not responsible for any misuse of the donations by the beneficiary Charities.  By using the Platform, You understand and agree that G1VE shall not be responsible for any losses or damages incurred as a result of the donations that You choose to make through the Platform.  In the event of a dispute between Users (including but not limited to fundraisers, donors, beneficiaries, and third parties), You agree that G1VE shall have no responsibility to You or to resolve any such dispute.
    • Service Fee. G1VE does not charge any Charity or Organization any upfront fees for registering a User Account on the Platform.  G1VE retains a portion of each donation contributed to a Charity, as explained in the Service Fee FAQ ([G1VE.org/service-fee/]) (“Service Fee”).  Each Organization acknowledges that by making a donation to any Charity, such Organization is agreeing to pay the Service Fee as explained in the Service Fee FAQ, in addition to any other terms relating to such transaction under this Agreement.
  9. TERMINATION. This Agreement may be terminated by either party at any time, in that party’s sole discretion, upon notice to the other party as permitted under this Agreement.  Upon termination or expiration of this Agreement for any reason: (a) all rights and licenses granted to You under this Agreement will terminate; (b) You will immediately cease all use of and access to the Platform and all Content and Services (including, without limitation, all Content You obtained prior to termination or expiration); and (c) G1VE may, in its sole discretion, delete Your User Account and any of Your Content held by G1VE.  Sections 1 (Definitions); 6 (Your Content); 8 (Donations); 11 (Platform Technology); 12 (Ownership); 13 (Representations and Warranties); 14 (Indemnity); 15 (Limitation on Liability); 16 (Data Use); 18 (Disputes); 19 (Governing Law and Venue); 20 (Notices); 21 (Linked Sites); and 22 (Additional Terms) will survive any expiration or termination of this Agreement.

  11. PLATFORM TECHNOLOGY. The Platform, and the databases, software, hardware and other technology used by or on behalf of G1VE to operate the Platform, and the structure, organization, and underlying data, information and software code thereof (collectively, the “Technology“), constitute valuable trade secrets of G1VE and its service providers.

Denver, CO 80206

copyright@G1VE.org

 

Please provide the following information to G1VE’s Copyright Agent: (1) the identity of the infringed work, and of the allegedly infringing work; (2) Your name, address, daytime phone number, and email address, if available; (3) a statement that You have a good-faith belief that the use of the copyrighted work is not authorized by the owner, his or her agent, or the law; (4) a statement that the information in the notification is accurate and, under penalty of perjury, that You are authorized to act on behalf of the owner; and (5) Your electronic or physical signature.  G1VE will take whatever action, in its sole discretion, it deems appropriate, including the removing the allegedly infringing work from the Platform.

  1. DISPUTES. Except as otherwise provided below, the parties will attempt to resolve all disputes, controversies, or claims arising under, out of, or relating to this Agreement, including the formation, validity, binding effect, interpretation, performance, breach or termination, of this Agreement and the arbitrability of the issues submitted to arbitration hereunder and non-contractual claims relating to this Agreement (each, a “Dispute“), in accordance with the procedures set forth in this Section.  If any Dispute cannot be resolved through negotiations between the parties within 5 days of notice from one party to the other of the Dispute, such Dispute will be finally settled through binding arbitration under the arbitration of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA“) then in effect (the “Rules“).  Either party may commence the arbitration by delivering a request for arbitration as specified in the Rules.  The arbitration will be conducted before a sole neutral arbitrator selected by agreement of the parties.  If the parties cannot agree on the appointment of a single arbitrator within 30 days (the “Initial Period“) after either party to this Agreement delivers a request for arbitration, a neutral arbitrator will be selected as provided in the Rules.  The arbitration will be conducted exclusively in the English language at a site specified by G1VE in the State of Colorado, U.S.A.  The award of the arbitrator will be the exclusive remedy of the parties for all claims, counterclaims, issues or accountings presented or plead to the arbitrator.  The award of the arbitrators will require payment of the costs, fees, and expenses incurred by the prevailing party in any such arbitration by the non-prevailing party.  Judgment upon the award may be entered in any court or governmental body having jurisdiction thereof.  Any additional costs, fees, or expenses incurred in enforcing the award may be charged against the party that resists its enforcement.
  2. GOVERNING LAW AND VENUE. The interpretation of the rights and obligations of the parties under this Agreement, including, to the extent applicable, any negotiations, arbitrations or other proceedings hereunder, will be governed in all respects exclusively by the laws of the State of Colorado, U.S.A., as such laws apply to contracts between residents of Colorado without regard to conflict of laws provisions thereof.  Subject to Section 18 (Disputes), each party will bring any action or proceeding arising from or relating to this Agreement exclusively in a federal or state court in the State of Colorado, U.S.A., and You irrevocably submit to the personal jurisdiction and venue of any such courts in any such action or proceeding brought in such courts by G1VE.
  3. NOTICES. Unless otherwise specified in this Agreement, any notices required or allowed under this Agreement will be provided to G1VE by postal mail to the address for G1VE listed on the Platform.  G1VE may provide You with any notices required or allowed under this Agreement by sending You an email to any email address You provide to G1VE in connection with Your User Account, provided that in the case of any notice applicable both to You and other Users of the Platform, G1VE may instead provide such notice by posting on the Platform.  Notices provided to G1VE will be deemed given when actually received by G1VE.  Notice provided to You will be deemed given 24 hours after posting to the Platform or sending via e-mail, unless (as to e-mail) the sending party is notified that the e-mail address is invalid.
  4. LINKED SITES. The Platform, Content, or Services may contain links to third-party sites or content that are not under the control of G1VE. If You access a third-party site or content from the Platform or Services, then You do so at Your own risk and G1VE is not responsible for any content on any linked site. You may establish a link to the Site, provided that the link does not state or imply any sponsorship or endorsement of Your site by G1VE or any group or individual affiliated with G1VE.  You may not use on Your site any Content or marks appearing on the Site or Platform in establishing the link.  You may not frame or otherwise incorporate into another site the content or other materials on the Platform without prior written consent.
  5. ADDITIONAL TERMS. Unless otherwise amended as provided herein, this Agreement will exclusively govern Your access to and use of the Platform, Content, and Services, and is the complete and exclusive understanding and agreement between the parties, and supersedes any oral or written proposal, agreement or other communication between the parties, regarding Your access to and use of the Platform, Content, and Services. Except as expressly set forth in this Agreement, this Agreement may be amended or modified in writing, signed by both parties.  All waivers by G1VE under this Agreement must be in writing or later acknowledged by G1VE in writing.  Any waiver or failure by G1VE to enforce any provision of this Agreement on one occasion will not be deemed a waiver by G1VE of any other provision or of such provision on any other occasion.  If any provision of this Agreement is held to be unenforceable, that provision will be removed to the extent necessary to comply with the law, replaced by a provision that most closely approximates the original intent and economic effect of the original to the extent consistent with the law, and the remaining provisions will remain in full force.  The prevailing party in any lawsuit or proceeding arising from or related to this Agreement will be entitled to receive its costs, expert witness fees and reasonable attorneys’ fees, including costs and fees on appeal.  You agree that each of G1VE’s service providers shall be considered a third party beneficiary of the above provisions, with all rights to enforce such provisions as if a service provider were a party to this Agreement.  Neither this Agreement nor any rights or obligations of You hereunder may be assigned or transferred by You (in whole or in part and including by sale, merger, consolidation, or other operation of law) without the prior written approval of G1VE.  Any assignment in violation of the foregoing will be null and void.  G1VE may assign this Agreement to any party that assumes G1VE’s obligations hereunder.  The parties hereto are independent parties, not agents, employees or employers of the other or joint venturers, and neither acquires hereunder any right or ability to bind or enter into any obligation on behalf of the other.  Any reference herein to “including” will mean “including, without limitation.”  Upon request from G1VE, You agree to provide G1VE with such documentation or records with respect to Your activities under this Agreement as may be reasonably requested for G1VE to verify Your compliance with the terms of this Agreement and all applicable Laws.
