(Last updated: March 18, 2018)
Welcome to the CAUZE, inc. website (the “Site”).
The Site is owned and operated by Cauze, Inc. (“we,” “us,” etc. or the “Company”). YOU ASSUME ALL RISKS AND ALL COSTS ASSOCIATED WITH YOUR USE OF THE SITE, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY INTERNET ACCESS FEES, BACK-UP EXPENSES, COSTS INCURRED FOR THE USE OF YOUR DEVICE AND PERIPHERALS, AND ANY DAMAGE TO ANY EQUIPMENT, SOFTWARE, OR INFORMATION.
The Company reserves the right to modify, suspend or remove the Site or any part of the Site, at any time or from time to time, with or without prior notice to you. You agree that we will not be liable to you or any third party for any modification or termination of the Site. You acknowledge that we have no express or implied obligation to provide or continue to provide the Site, or any part of the Site, nor to provide any maintenance, technical or other support for the Site. You acknowledge that we may, at any time, restrict, limit, suspend or terminate your access to the Site or commence charging fees for use of the Site.
We have collaborated with the One4All Charitable Fund, a 501(c)(3) public charity (“One4All”), to provide the Site’s users with a platform to create a donor advised fund (“DAF”), access publicly-available information regarding charities, create and manage profiles in connection with their accounts, and post comments and use other communications tools provided on the Site (the “Services”). The Company assumes no responsibility or liability for the timeliness, accuracy, deletion, or mis-delivery of, or the failure to store, any Site content, user information or settings or communications tools. You bear all such risks. Likewise, we reserve the right at any time to modify or discontinue any Services, temporarily or permanently, with or without notice. You agree that we will not be liable to you or to any third party for any modification, suspension, or discontinuance of the Services.
Unless otherwise indicated, all of the content displayed on this Site, including, but not limited to, any and all text, graphics, data, images, illustrations, sound, video, audio, software, and the selection and arrangement of these items, are owned by the Company or its licensors and protected by copyright, trademark, trade dress, or other intellectual property rights. All user content and feedback, including messages posted to the Site, may be edited, published, or otherwise used (or removed) by us. We do not claim ownership of these items, but by submitting or posting them, you grant us a non-exclusive, royalty-free, perpetual, irrevocable, and sublicenseable right to copy, modify, publish, translate, create derivative works from, perform, display and otherwise use such content (including your submitted name, likeness, and/or voice) on this Site or in any other media for any purpose related to our services or products, and you waive any right of publicity or privacy you may have in connection with such uses.
Use of the Site
You understand that all information, data, text, messages, or other materials publicly posted on the Site by third parties such as other users is the sole responsibility of the person from which such content originated. This means that you, and not the Company, bear all liability for all such content that you post, email, transmit or otherwise make available via the Services, and all risk for all third party content that you read, forward, or otherwise act on. You acknowledge that the opinions contained on this Site are not necessarily those of the Company or endorsed by us. We may provide links on the Site to other websites which are not under our control; these links are provided for convenience of reference only and are not intended as an endorsement by the Company of the organization or individual operating the website or a warranty of any type regarding the website or the information on the website.
You also agree that any content or feedback you submit will not: (i) infringe any third party’s privacy, copyright, or other proprietary rights; (ii) be obscene, defamatory, pornographic, abusive, harassing, or fraudulent; or (iii) violate any applicable law or otherwise give rise to liability. You further agree not to use the Services to: (a) post, email, transmit or otherwise make available any unsolicited or unauthorized advertising, promotional materials, “junk mail,” “spam,” “chain letters,” or any other solicitations; (b) introduce any material that contains any software viruses or other computer code, files or programs designed to interrupt, destroy or limit the functionality of any software, hardware or telecommunications equipment; or (c) harvest or otherwise attempt to collect or store personal data about other users.
You acknowledge that the Company will have the right (but not the obligation) in its discretion to refuse, move, edit, or delete any content that is submitted or otherwise made available via the Service, regardless of whether such communication(s) violate these Terms. You further acknowledge that we may preserve and/or disclose such content if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that preservation or disclosure is reasonably necessary to: (i) comply with legal process; (ii) enforce these Terms; (iii) respond to third party claims regarding such content; or (iv) protect the rights, property, or personal safety of the Company, its users or the public.
User Accounts and Donations
In addition to these Terms, any One4All DAF account you open, donation you make, or similar activity you undertake is governed by the terms and conditions of the One4All Charitable Fund Donor Agreement (the “Donor Agreement”), found here. By using this Site to open any One4All DAF account, make any donation or take any other act with respect to One4All, you agree to be bound by the terms and conditions in the Donor Agreement. In addition, you are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of the user ID and password associated with your One4All DAF account and Site profile and for all activities that occur under such accounts. The Company does not retain liability or responsibility for such use.
In making a donation through your One4All DAF account or through a linked-to website operated by our payment processor(s) for donations (a “Donation”), you may be asked to supply certain information relevant to your Donation, including without limitation your credit card number or other payment account number, and your billing address. YOU REPRESENT AND WARRANT THAT YOU ARE EIGHTEEN (18) YEARS OF AGE OR OLDER AND HAVE THE LEGAL RIGHT TO USE ANY PAYMENT MEANS USED BY YOU IN CONNECTION WITH ANY DONATION. By submitting such information, you grant the Company (or its payment processor(s)) the right to provide such information to third parties for purposes of consummating Donations initiated by you or on your behalf. Verification of information may be required prior to the acknowledgment or completion of any Donation. We reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to refuse or cancel the processing of any Donation for any reason. The Company (or its payment processor(s) may automatically process charges against your selected payment method. The Company or its payment processor will inform you if all or any portion of your Donation is refused or canceled or if additional or different information is required to process and accept your Donation.
You agree that we may, in our sole discretion, terminate your password or use of this Service, or terminate your One4All DAF account as directed by One4All, and remove and discard any content within the Service, for any reason, including, without limitation, for lack of use or if we (or One4All) believe that you have violated or acted inconsistently with any of these Terms or the Donor Agreement. You agree that any termination of your access may be effected without prior notice, and you agree that we may deactivate or delete your account and related information and files and/or prevent further access to such files or the Services, and that we will not be liable to you or any third-party for any termination of your access to the Services.
