We offer access to and use of a platform (the Service) where people who wish to find creative projects and/or business (Campaign Authors) can run campaigns to attract funding by offering rewards to raise money from other users (Contributors) and to other related Software.
Through the site, email, websites, and other media, the service makes accessible various content, including, but not limited to, videos, photographs, images, artwork, graphics, audio clips, comments, data, text, software, scripts, projects, other material and information, and associated trademarks and other works (Content).
Campaign Authors, Contributors, and other visitors to and users of the Service (Users) may have the ability to contribute, add, create, upload, submit, distribute, facilitate the distribution of, collect, post, or otherwise make accessible (Submit) Content. User Submissions means any Content Submitted by Users.
The Service is only available to individuals who are at least 18 years of age (and at least, the legal age in your jurisdiction). You represent and warrant that if you are an individual, you are at least 18 years old and of legal age in your jurisdiction to form a binding contract, and that all registration information you submit is accurate and truthful.

Crowdfund Campus may, in its sole discretion, refuse to offer the Service to any person or entity and change its eligibility criteria at any time. This provision is void where prohibited by law and the right to access the Service is revoked in those jurisdictions.

By creating a fundraising campaign on Crowdfund Campus, as a Campaign Author, you are offering the public the opportunity to enter into a contract with you. By backing a fundraising campaign on Crowdfund Campus, as a Contributor, you accept that offer and upon such acceptance, the contract between the Contributor and Campaign Author shall be formed. Crowdfund Campus shall not be a party to that agreement and all dealings shall be solely between the Users.
Contributors must provide their payment information at the time they pledge to a campaign. The payment will be collected at or after the campaign deadline and only if the amount of money pledged as of the deadline is at least equal to the fundraising goal. The amount Contributors pledge is the amount they will be charged.
Contributors consent to Crowdfund Campus and its payments partners authorising or reserving a charge on their payment card or other payment method for any amount up to the full pledge at any time between the pledge and collection of the funds.
Contributors may increase, decrease, or cancel their pledge at any time during the fundraising campaign, except that they may not cancel or reduce their pledge if the campaign is in its final 24 hours and the cancellation or reduction would drop the campaign below its goal.
For all campaigns, Crowdfund Campus gives to the Campaign Author each Contributor’s name, email. and pledge amount.
Crowdfund Campus does not offer refunds. A Campaign Author is not required to grant a Contributor’s request for a refund unless the Campaign Author is unable or unwilling to fulfill the reward.
Campaign Authors may cancel or refund a Contributor’s pledge at any time and for any reason, and if they do so, are not required to fulfill the reward.
Because of occasional failures of payments from Contributors, Crowdfund Campus cannot guarantee the receipt by Campaign Authors of the amount pledged minus fees.
Crowdfund Campus and its payments partners will remove their fees before transmitting proceeds of a campaign. Fees may vary depending on region and other factors.
