B. Creating Campaigns and making Pledges.

This section sets out the terms that apply to the projects that you create and the pledges or other contributions you make in support of projects.

  1. Our role

1.1 What we do

1.1.1 We provide an ‘online meeting place’ and platform through which Community Members can raise finance for their social projects or causes. By providing this platform, together with crowdfunding tips and guidance, we facilitate agreement between Campaign Organisers Donors for Pledges, subject always to these Terms; ‘ground rules’ that we put in place to act as safeguards for the benefit of all Community Members.

1.1.2 Although we may from time to time agree to promote and advertise certain Campaigns or help to raise awareness of their Project Goals, we will not be involved in the management of or use of Pledges in relation to a Campaign.

1.1.3 We shall ensure all Pledges made in relation to Campaigns are appropriately processed and transferred to the Bank account of the organisers no later than 48 hours after the agreed time period.

1.1.4 We shall ask all Donors making Pledges to confirm that they accept responsibility for ascertaining the true nature of any campaigns they are contributing to.

1.1.5 We shall ask all Campaign Organisers to confirm that the campaigns they are raising funds for are legal in nature.

1.2 What we don’t do

1.2.1 Other than as mentioned above, we do not have any involvement in any arrangements Community Members make with each other through comfundme.com. We therefore do not accept any responsibility for the nature or quality of a Campaign/Project, nor do we promise that any Community Member, whether Campaign Organiser or Donor, will do as they promise. The arrangements you make are solely private and the contracts relating to Projects, Campaigns and Pledges, are made directly between the individual parties concerned. Accordingly, when using comfundme.com, you take full responsibility for your arrangements with other Community Members whom you contact and the nature, terms and extent of your arrangements with them and obligations to them.

1.2.2 We do not verify the identity of everyone who becomes a Community Member nor the information they provide about their Campaign/Project. We cannot therefore give any guarantee that any of the Community Members are who they say they are or that the information they provide is accurate, complete or true. Consequently, we make no recommendation or representations in relation to any Community Members or their Campaigns/Projects.

  1. Campaign Organisers

2.1 Creating and updating Projects

2.1.1 Once you have registered as a Community Member, you can create and post details of your Campaign to a publicly accessible webpage on comfundme.com (“Campaign Profile Page”) using the functionality we provide.

2.1.2 We have specific rules regarding the types of campaigns that you can post on comfundme.com.

ComFundMe's mission is to tackle society's challenges by gathering support for causes through community effort. Our aim is to help projects and causes that matter get support from people who care. ComFundMe supports the principles of freedom of speech, tolerance and inclusivity. 

While we recognise that some projects may become the subject of public debate, it is primarily for the crowd to decide which projects will get their funding and support. ComFundMe will not, however, host projects where the act of raising funds or the purpose of the project is illegal under Nigerian law.

2.1.3 You may not raise funds via another online crowdfunding or similar platform (whether website or app) during the Funding Period of your Project and all Pledges from Community Members must be made through comfundme.com. Otherwise, unless we specifically agree an exclusive arrangement with you in writing, you are not obliged to raise funds for your Project exclusively via comfundme.com which means you are free to raise funds using other means and channels and source of finance.

2.1.4 Although we recommend you have no more than one active Project at any one time, we permit you to post as many active Projects as you like.

2.1.5 There is no limit on the Funding Target you select for each Campaign.

2.1.6 When submitting details of your Project, you will be presented with three funding options, as follows:

  • ‘All Or Nothing’ – if you choose this option when listing your Project, we will only distribute funds to you if you reach your Fundraising Target. If you do not reach your Fundraising Target, all Pledges and tips will be returned to Donors.
  • ‘Sweep What Is Raised’– if you choose this option when listing your Project, we will distribute funds to you at the end of the Fundraising Period regardless whether any Fundraising Target has been reached. This option ,ay also be used for periodic sweeps.
  • ‘Forever Funding’– if you choose this option your Project will stay open to receive Pledges on a continuous basis (but at a minimum for the Fundraising Period below) and we will transfer funds to you on an agreed periodic basis. 

2.1.7 The minimum Fundraising Period that you can choose for your Project is 28 days and the maximum is 12 months.

2.1.8 Depending on your profile and the Target Amount, your Project may take up to 3 working days before it goes live and your Project Profile Page is made available on comfundme.com. From time to time, we may provide a Crowdfunding coach (“Coach”) to provide guidance relating to your Campaign, and offer tips for marketing and press exposure. If we do so, your Coach will usually be assigned to you with 24 hours of submitting your Project details. Please note that Coaches provide general guidance and information only and neither they nor us will be liable to you in connection with the Campaign Goal, any Project, and/or performance, promotion and marketing of your Project, which all remain solely your responsibility.

2.1.9 Once you have submitted your Project details for posting you cannot change its Campaign Goal, the Funding Target or the Fundraising Period.

2.1.10 You may post content and other material (e.g. promotional material such as a pictures and videos containing your Project) and post Project updates to keep Donors updated on the performance of your Project. Please see further paragraph 1 of Section DAbout the content you and others provide to comfundme.com, for the rules relating to the content you post on comfundme.com.

2.1.11 If you choose All Or Nothing You may withdraw a Project at any point before the end of the Fundraising Period. Once you have done so, you will not be entitled to any Pledges when you withdraw. You also will not be able to resume that Project at a later date whilst retaining funds from any of the Pledges you had received at the time of withdrawal. If you are using Seep What Is Raised you may withdraw a Project at any point before the end of the Fundraising Period. Once you have done so, you will be entitled to receive funds from any Pledges at the time you withdraw. You will not be able to resume that Project at a later date whilst retaining any of the Pledges you had received at the time of withdrawal. If you are using Forever Funding you may withdraw a Project at any point. Once you have done so, you will be entitled to any Pledges at the time you withdraw. 

2.1.12 We reserve the right, but are not obliged, to attempt to verify your identity and other information you provide to us and to reject, cancel, interrupt, remove, or suspend an active Project at any time and for any reason. In particular, Projects or Pledges that are flagged to us as fraudulent by Donors or our third party payment providers will be subject to review. If we find fraudulent Pledges have been made to your Project, we will cancel those Pledges and remove the details of the associated Backers from your Project Profile Page. If, in our sole discretion, we determine your Project to be a high fraud risk we may also ask you for more information and you agree to respond to such requests and provide such information within a reasonable time. We or our payment providers may also perform an examination before any funds are distributed to you. We will not be liable to you for any losses that you suffer or incur as a result of us taking any of the actions in this paragraph 2.1.12. We reserve the right to pass on the cost of chargebacks to you.

2.1.13 If the Fundraising Period of your Project ends without any distribution of funds to you (for reasons other than a breach by you of these Terms) you may choose to recreate your Project and repost it for submission.

2.1.14 We do not provide funds for Campaigns. All finance for Campaigns/Projects are made by Guests and Community Members to Community Members.  Should the Projects and/or offer of Rewards relate to active or pending legal proceedings we take no involvement in such Campaigns.
