Terms and Conditions for Direct Donations to the Runningstars.org
The Runningstars.org nonprofit organization gladly accepts donations to further its support to research a cure for COVID-19. Runningstars.org and its affiliates offer the opportunity to all Runningstars.org supporters (participants and non-participants alike) to make direct donations to the Runningstars.org nonprofit organization via the Runningstars.org website or app (“Website” or “App”) (later available at iTunes and Google Play store), Patreon website or PayPal website.
These Terms and Conditions for Direct Donations to the Runningstars.org nonprofit organization (“Terms”) apply to any single or regular donations made to the Runningstars.org nonprofit organization. Except as provided for in section 1.7 “regular donations”, and unless specified by you, these Terms do not form a contract allowing for future or successive transactions to be set up. By confirming the Website or App that you wish to make a donation, you agree to be bound by these Terms for that donation.
1. Making a single or regular donation
1.1. Donations may be accepted by individuals or companies (each a “Donor”). If an individual wishes to make a donation, he/she must be 18 years or over or have obtained parental consent.
1.2. Donations must be made via credit or debit card (Visa, MasterCard for most countries, in addition, JCB or American Express for some), PayPal (if provided), or credit transfer directly to the bank account by SEPA or SWIFT wire transfers. Local charges may apply for the donation payment – for further details in this regard, please contact your bank. No cash donations are permitted.
1.3. Credit or debit card details will not be transferred to Runningstars.org, but only (i) to the credit or debit card company directly or, (ii) in case of payment with Visa, JCB or MasterCard, to the mandated credit or debit card acquirer (European Merchant Services B.V. or other local companies) in charge of processing the payment with the respective credit card company. By confirming that you wish to proceed with your donation you authorize the credit or debit card acquirer to request funds from your credit or debit card provider.
1.4. Each Donor represents and warrants that: (i) it has the legal right to use any credit or debit card(s) or other payment methods (s) in connection with any donation; and that (ii) the information supplied to us is true, correct and complete. If a Donor becomes aware of fraudulent use of its card, or if it is lost or stolen, it must notify its card provider.
1.5 Upon receipt of the payment, the Donor will receive an email confirmation of its donation, containing the details of Runningstars.org nonprofit organization, the name, and address of Donor, as well as the date, amount and currency of the donation (as required to qualify for tax-deductibility in certain jurisdictions).
1.6. Refunds are not accepted.
1.7 For regular donations, these Terms will only apply to successive donations made through the Website or App or 3rd parties services such as PayPal Donate or Patreon where you have set up a standing order to donate regularly. When you set up a regular donation, you will be scheduling a series of donations to be made at your chosen frequency until further notice. You agree that these terms will apply to each of the donations in that series. You will receive a donation confirmation at the end of each calendar year. To cancel your regular donation, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or cancel directly through the provider where you registered the donation.
2. Supporting a fundraiser / Publication of donation (express consent required)
2.2. In doing so, Runners are provided with an additional option to start their own Runningstars.org fundraiser and call upon others, e.g. via social media, to support the cause of the Runningstars.org nonprofit organization and make donations.
2.3. Provided that both the person starting such a fundraiser (‘Fundraiser’) and the Donor making a dedicated donation in support of the fundraiser expressly agree by ticking the respective fields when making the donation or setting the status of their fundraising page accordingly, the Donor’s name and the amount of his/her donation will be published on the Fundraiser’s runner’s page.
2.4. In the event that only the Fundraiser, but not the Donor, decides and agrees to make the results of his/her fundraising efforts public on his/her runner’s page, only the donated amount will appear/be added, while the Donor will remain anonymous.
3. Every mile counts
3.1. As part of the “show the world 1-mile” initiative, donations can also be made until 30 June 2020 for participants of the Runningstars.org #RunningCovid campaign. Based on the number of miles run by participants, donors can choose to donate a set amount per mile. A donation amount can be set in advance and will be reserved on the credit or debit card or filled later in the donation form individually. Following the run, the amount run by the participant will be displayed on the main website runningstars.org.
4. Data collection and protection
5.1. The Runningstars.org nonprofit organization reserves the right to change these Terms.
5.2. These Terms are governed by the Slovak Republic law and are subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the Slovak courts.
