ABOUT GIVELIFY (Pronounced Giv-luh-fahy)
The Givelify website, web application, and mobile applications are products of Givelify, a registered LLC in the State of Indiana. The Givelify software and other technologies have been designed, architected and developed by Control-Z LLC.
Givelify provides donation-based services for not-for-profit organizations—specifically religious organizations, charitable organizations, not for profit events, fundraisers, and political events, (each, a "Donee")—to receive donations made by users of the Site (each, a "Donor").
Givelify is not a bank, money transmitter, or Money Services Business ("MSB"), and we do not offer banking or MSB services as defined by the United States Department of Treasury. Givelify facilitates giving of monetary donations by Donor to Donee. In order to function as a payment facilitator, Givelify partners with third party networks, processors and banks, who actually execute the transfer of funds from Donor to Donee. Givelify only collects data about each transfer, organizes the data and makes it available to both Donor and Donee.

Donations Generally. Donor may provide donations to a non-registered Donee through the Site. Upon receiving such donation, Givelify will make commercially reasonable efforts to notify Donee and arrange disbursement. Givelify also provides access to transaction data that can be exported by Donees for reporting purposes. Donors may provide donations to Donees through credit-card, debit card, or ACH transactions. By providing donations through the Site or receiving donations from the Site, you agree that all credit-card charges shall be processed through Givelify's third party credit-card transaction provider. You agree that credit card transactions and use of third party credit-card transaction provider through the Site shall be subject to third party credit-card transaction provider’s terms and conditions.
Transaction Fees. Further, you agree that Givelify may keep the stated amount of each donation as a transaction fee for any donation made through the Site. Givelify will subtract the amount of the transaction fee from the total amount of donation before disbursing Donation to Donee. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if a Donor's donation is returned or refused by a financial institution for any reason, Donee agrees that any funds transmitted to Donee shall be reversed and Givelify shall deduct Donee's Givelify account for the amount of such reversal. Furthermore, Donor agrees to pay fees associated with processing any returned donation.
Donor Refunds. You acknowledge and agree that Givelify is not a bank, money transmitter, or MSB and agree that any dispute or discussion concerning the deposit of funds into your account, the issuance of refunds, credits or voids, or account fees and charges should be addressed to your financial institution. Givelify may, in its sole discretion, offer a refund to a Donor for the amount donated in the event that the donor provided the donation to an incorrect organization, the organization is fraudulent, or in other situations. Except as otherwise set forth herein, to be eligible for a refund, donors must submit a request within thirty (30) days of providing any such donation, to firstname.lastname@example.org with the Subject "Refund Request" and include the purchaser's Givelify username and transaction information. Givelify will make commercially reasonable efforts to respond within ten (10) days of any such request. In the event that Donor provides a donation to a non-registered Donee and Givelify cannot arrange disbursement with such Donee, Givelify will make commercially reasonable efforts to provide a refund of the donation to Donor. In the event that Givelify issues any refund to a donor, the refund may take thirty (30) days to be processed. Givelify is not responsible for refund requests that are not timely received in accordance with the Terms for any reason.
Donee's Liability for Refund. In the event Givelify provides a refund to a donor, Givelify will seek repayment of the refunded amount from the Donee in the transaction. By listing your organization through the Site, you agree to pay Givelify the refunded amount and that Givelify may deduct the refunded amount directly from your financial account, if applicable.
Disbursements. All donations received from Donors are deposited into a holding account with Key Bank until the process of disbursing donations to Donee is completed. Givelify processes disbursements once a week. All donations from the prior week will be tallied and disbursed in one lump sum. Any donations received on the disbursement day will be part of the following week's disbursement. In the case that Donor is giving to an unregistered Donee, Donor acknowledges that Givelify will make all reasonable attempt to contact Donee to notify them of the donation and arrange disbursement to Donee. Givelify may disburse donations to Donee via ACH transfer, or paper check. Givelify may retain the service of a third bill payment service to disburse paper check to Donee. In such case, both Donor and Donee agree to be bound by the terms of service of the third party bill payment service. In the event that Givelify is unable to reach an unregistered Donee to arrange disbursement within thirty days, Givelify will refund the full amount of donation to the donor.
