END OF TERMS OF SERVICE
SUPPLEMENTAL TERMS OF SERVICE – TEACHERS
TeacherFunder is an online service that facilitates users (a “Funder”) contributing to teachers (the “Teacher”) and also to contribute to schools (the “School”) (collectively, the “Service”). The Service is operated from the website www.teacherfunder.com. The use of the TeacherFunder Service by a Teacher to raise money from Funders will be referred to as a “Teacher Campaign.” The use of the TeacherFunder Service by a School to raise money from Funders will be referred to as a “School Campaign.” These Supplemental Terms of Service govern the relationship between TeacherFunder and a Teacher or a School in relation to the Service.
In registering to use the Service, or during a Campaign, Teachers and Schools may be asked to provide information to TeacherFunder relevant to their Campaign. Teachers and Schools will provide this information promptly and in good faith, and provide all other assistance and information reasonable requested by TeacherFunder.
TeacherFunder will deduct its fee before transmitting the proceeds of a Campaign to you. Our standard rate of commission is 3.9% transaction processor fee + $0.60.
International payments and certain payment methods may give rise to higher payment processing costs. We will ensure that your proceeds from a Campaign are not lower than agreed on account of payment processing costs.
Prior to having received any payment from TeacherFunder in relation to any Campaign, you may cancel the Campaign at any time (TeacherFunder will be responsible for any refunds due to the Funder). However, if you have received payment from TeacherFunder in relation to a Campaign you wish to cancel, you are solely responsible for any refund that may be due to Funders up to the total amount you have received from TeacherFunder in relation to that Campaign.
Some contributions cannot be collected (for instance, when a Funder’s credit card expires before a contribution has been paid in full, and they do not provide updated payment information). Although TeacherFunder will make reasonable attempts to contact a Funder whose payment method is declined in order to rectify the issue, we cannot guarantee that the amount of the contribution you receive will be exactly equal to the target contribution amount minus TeacherFunder’s fee.
We do not make any guarantees with respect to the timing of receipt of funds, which may be subject to payment processing or other delays. Do not take any action in reliance on the receipt of funds until you are in receipt of cleared funds.
2.1. Payment in Relation to Teacher Campaigns
TeacherFunder will transfer the amount of the target contribution to the Teacher, at midnight following donation of the Funder’s contribution.
2.2. Payment in Relation to School Campaigns:
TeacherFunder will transfer the amount of the target contribution to the School, at midnight following donation of the Funder’s contribution.
If the Teacher or the School wishes to receive payments other than as detailed above (“Special Payment Request”), TeacherFunder will assess each the request and will have sole discretion to decide whether the request is fulfilled. A Teacher or a School must send the Special Payment Request to the campaign manager one week in advance of desired delivery of the requested funds.
3. WITHDRAWAL BEFORE TARGET CONTRIBUTION REACHED
Teachers and Schools may at any time before reaching their target contribution amount, but always with 30-days notice, withdraw from the Service and terminate their Campaign by contacting TeacherFunder at: [email protected] and providing explanation for withdrawal.
4. WITHDRAWAL AFTER TARGET CONTRIBUTION REACHED
Teachers and Schools who have reached their target contribution amount are committed to completing the project promised by its Campaign. If, for any reason, this is not possible the Teacher or the School must immediately inform TeacherFunder of this fact, and cooperate fully and in the utmost of good faith with TeacherFunder to address this situation in a way that is consistent with the interests of TeacherFunder, the teacher, and involved Funders.
5. DISBURSEMENT OF CONTRIBUTED FUNDS
Funds collected by TeacherFunder for a Campaign will be held in an account for the teacher. TeacherFunder will promptly make any contributions required by the Campaign in the Teacher’s name or the School’s name, and then disburse funds to cover the Teacher’s or the School’s project and associated expenses (including TeacherFunder’s fee for running the Campaign) directly to the service providers involved.
The Teacher or the School and TeacherFunder will agree together on which services providers are suitable for the Campaign requirements, and TeacherFunder will contract directly with these service providers for the Teacher’s or the School’s requirements. If TeacherFunder has reason to believe that Teacher will not fulfill their Campaign obligations, TeacherFunder may cease disbursement of funds for the Teacher or the School, and require that the Teacher or the School enter into discussions with TeacherFunder to address TeacherFunder’s concerns regarding the fulfillment of the Campaign obligations. If the Teacher or the School and TeacherFunder are unable to reach a satisfactory agreement regarding Teacher’s or School’s outstanding Campaign obligations, TeacherFunder may terminate the Campaign and refund contributions to Funders of the Campaign in proportion to the amounts remaining in the account for the Campaign. Interest on all funds held will accrue to the benefit of TeacherFunder.
6. CHARGEBACKS AND REFUNDS
If, for any reason, TeacherFunder is required to refund monies to Funders of a Campaign, the Teacher or the School will fully compensate TeacherFunder for the amount refunded as well as any associated costs, including but not limited to transaction or administrative costs.
