Terms of Use

1. Accepting These Terms

This document and the other documents that we reference below make up our Terms of Use.

The Terms are a legally binding contract between you and SeaHero, LLC, formally known to the public as GiftsToHeal. We’ll just refer to SeaHero, LLC. and all of its subsidiaries collectively as “GiftsToHeal.”

Please note that Section 11. Disputes with GiftsToHeal, contains an arbitration clause and class action waiver. By agreeing to the Terms, you agree to resolve all disputes through binding individual arbitration, which means that you waive any right to have those disputes decided by a judge or jury, and that you waive your right to participate in class actions, class arbitrations, or representative actions. *

This contract sets out your rights and responsibilities when you use GiftsToHeal.com, our mobile apps, and the other services provided by GiftsToHeal (we’ll refer to all of these collectively as our “Services”), so please read it carefully. By using any of our Services (even just browsing one of our websites), you’re agreeing to the Terms. If you don’t agree with the Terms, you may not use our Services.

2. Those Other Documents We Mentioned

GiftsToHeal’s Services connect people around the world, both online and offline, to make, sell, and buy unique goods. Here’s a handy guide to help you understand the specific rules that are relevant for you, depending on how you use the Services:

Our Terms of Use for everyone. If you use any of our Services, you agree to these Terms, our Privacy Policy, and our Anti-Discrimination Policy.

Our Terms of Use for Funeral Directors. If you associate any obituary page with GiftsToHeal services or gift registry platform, these policies apply to you.

Our Terms of Use for Sellers. If you list any items for sale through our Services, these policies apply to you.

Our Terms of Use for Buyers. If you use our Services to browse or shop, these policies apply to you.

Our Terms of Use for Third Parties. These policies apply to intellectual property owners, GiftsToHeal API users, affiliates, Funeral Software Providers, and anyone requesting information from GiftsToHeal.

Search and Advertising Ranking Disclosures. This is a concise summary of how GiftsToHeal organizes search results and advertising results that could include Your Content.

All of these policies are a part of our Terms, so be sure to read the Terms for everyone as well as the ones that are relevant for you.

3. Your Privacy

We know your personal information is important to you, so it’s important to us. Our Privacy Policy details how your information is used when you use our Services. By using our Services, you're also agreeing that we can process your information in the ways set out in the Privacy Policy.

Both GiftsToHeal and sellers process members’ personal information (for example, buyer name, email address, and shipping address) and are therefore considered separate and independent data controllers of buyers’ personal information under EU law. That means that each party is responsible for the personal information it processes in providing the Services. For example, if a seller accidentally discloses a buyer’s name and email address when fulfilling another buyer’s order, the seller, not GiftsToHeal, will be responsible for that unauthorized disclosure.  

If, however, GiftsToHeal and sellers are found to be joint data controllers of buyers’ personal information, and if GiftsToHeal is sued, fined, or otherwise incurs expenses because of something that you did as a joint data controller of buyer personal information, you agree to indemnify GiftsToHeal for the expenses it occurs in connection with your processing of buyer personal information. See Section 9. Indemnification (or What Happens If You Get Us Sued) below for more information about your indemnification obligations to GiftsToHeal.

4. Your Account with GiftsToHeal

Often you’ll need to create an account with GiftsToHeal to use some of our Services. Here are a few rules about accounts with GiftsToHeal:

A. You must be 18 years or older to use our Services. Minors under 18 and at least 13 years of age are only permitted to use our Services through an account owned by a parent or legal guardian with their appropriate permission and under their direct supervision. Children under 13 years are not permitted to use GiftsToHeal or the Services. You are responsible for any and all account activity conducted by a minor on your account.

B. Be honest with us. Provide accurate information about yourself. It’s prohibited to use false information or impersonate another person or company through your account.

C. Choose an appropriate name. If you decide to not have your full name serve as the name associated with your account, you may not use language that is offensive, vulgar, infringes someone’s intellectual property rights, or otherwise violates the Terms.

D. You're responsible for your account. You’re solely responsible for any activity on your account. If you’re sharing an account with other people, then the person whose financial information is on the account will ultimately be responsible for all activity. If you’re registering as a business entity, you personally guarantee that you have the authority to agree to the Terms on behalf of the business. Also, your accounts are not transferable.

E. Protect your password. As we mentioned above, you’re solely responsible for any activity on your account, so it’s important to keep your account password secure.

F. Let's be clear about our relationship. These Terms don't create any agency, partnership, joint venture, employment, or franchisee relationship between you and GiftsToHeal.

5. Your Content

Content that you post using our Services is your content (so let’s refer to it as “Your Content”). We don’t make any claim to it, which includes anything you post using our Services (like shop names, profile pictures, listing photos, listing descriptions, reviews, comments, videos, usernames, etc.).

A. Responsibility for Your Content. You understand that you are solely responsible for Your Content. You represent that you have all necessary rights to Your Content and that you’re not infringing or violating any third party’s rights by posting it.

B. Permission to Use Your Content. By posting Your Content through our Services, you grant GiftsToHeal a license to use it. We don’t claim any ownership to Your Content, but we have your permission to use it to help GiftsToHeal function and grow. That way, we won’t infringe any rights you have in Your Content and we can help promote it. For example, you acknowledge and agree GiftsToHeal may offer you or GiftsToHeal buyers promotions on the Site, from time to time, that may relate to your listings

C. Rights You Grant GiftsToHeal. (Here’s the legalese version of the last section). By posting Your Content, you grant GiftsToHeal a non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free, irrevocable, sub-licensable, perpetual license to use, display, edit, modify, reproduce, distribute, store, and prepare derivative works of Your Content. This allows us to provide the Services and to promote GiftsToHeal, your GiftsToHeal shop, or the Services in general, in any formats and through any channels, including across any GiftsToHeal Services, our partners, or third-party website or advertising medium. You agree not to assert any moral rights or rights of publicity against us for using Your Content. You also recognize our legitimate interest in using it, in accordance with the scope of this license, to the extent Your Content contains any personal information.

That sounds like a lot, but it’s necessary for us to keep GiftsToHeal going. Consider these examples: if you upload a photo or video of a listing on your GiftsToHeal shop, we have permission to display it to buyers, and we can resize or enhance it so it looks good to a buyer using our mobile app; if you post a description in English, we can translate it into French so a buyer in Paris can learn the story behind your item; and if you post a beautiful photo or video of your latest handmade necklace, we can feature it– often along with your shop name and shop picture– on our homepage, in one of our blogs or even on a billboard to help promote your business and GiftsToHeal’s.

D. Reporting Unauthorized Content. GiftsToHeal has great respect for intellectual property rights, and is committed to following appropriate legal procedures to remove infringing content from the Services. If content that you own or have rights to has been posted to the Services without your permission and you want it removed, please contact us via email support@giftstoheal.com to do so. If Your Content is alleged to infringe another person’s intellectual property, we will take appropriate action, such as disabling it if we receive proper notice or terminating your account if you are found to be a repeat infringer. We’ll notify you if any of that happens.

E. Inappropriate, False, or Misleading Content. This should be common sense, but there are certain types of content we don’t want posted on GiftsToHeal’s Services (for legal reasons or otherwise). You agree that you will not post any content that is abusive, threatening, defamatory, obscene, vulgar, or otherwise offensive or in violation of any part of our Terms. You also agree not to post any content that is false and misleading or uses the Services in a manner that is fraudulent or deceptive.

6. Your Use of Our Services

License to Use Our Services. We grant you a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable, and revocable license to use our Services—subject to the Terms and the following restrictions in particular:

A. Don’t Use Our Services to Break the Law. You agree that you will not violate any laws in connection with your use of the Services. This includes any local, state, federal, and international laws that may apply to you. For example, it’s your responsibility to obtain any permits or licenses that your shop requires, and to meet applicable legal requirements in applicable jurisdiction(s). This includes the sale and delivery of your items, such as age verification upon delivery, where required by law. You may not sell anything that violates any laws; you must comply with our Sanctions Policy, and you may not engage in fraud (including false claims or infringement notices), theft, anti-competitive conduct, threatening conduct, or any other unlawful acts or crimes against GiftsToHeal, another GiftsToHeal user, or a third party.

B. Pay Your Bills. You are responsible for paying all fees that you owe to GiftsToHeal. Except as set forth below, you are also solely responsible for collecting and/or paying any applicable taxes for any purchases or sales you make through our Services. In addition, GiftsToHeal will calculate, collect, and remit sales tax where applicable.

C. Don’t Steal Our Stuff. You agree not to crawl, scrape, or spider any page of the Services or to reverse engineer or attempt to obtain the source code of the Services. If you want to use our API, please contact us at support@giftstoheal.com

D. Don’t Try to Harm Our Systems. You agree not to interfere with or try to disrupt our Services, for example by distributing a virus or other harmful computer code.

E. Follow Our Trademark Policy. The name "GiftsToHeal" and the other GiftsToHeal marks, phrases, logos, and designs that we use in connection with our Services (the GiftsToHeal Trade marks), are trademarks, service marks, or trade dress of GiftsToHeal in the US and other countries.

F. Share Your Ideas. We love your suggestions and ideas! They can help us improve your experience and our Services. Any unsolicited ideas or other materials you submit to GiftsToHeal (not including Your Content or items you sell through our Services) are considered non-confidential and non-proprietary to you. You grant us a non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free, irrevocable, sub-licensable, perpetual license to use and publish those ideas and materials for any purpose, without compensation to you.

G. Talk to Us Online. From time to time, GiftsToHeal will provide you with certain legal information in writing. By using our Services, you’re agreeing to our Electronic Communications Policy, which describes how we provide that information to you. It says that we can send you information electronically (such as by email) instead of mailing you paper copies (it’s better for the environment), and that your electronic agreement is the same as your signature on paper.

7. Termination

Termination By You. We'd hate to see you go, but you may terminate your account with GiftsToHeal at any time from your account settings. Terminating your account will not affect the availability of some of Your Content that you posted through the Services prior to termination. Also keep in mind that you’ll still have to pay any outstanding bills.

Termination By GiftsToHeal. We may terminate or suspend your account (and any accounts GiftsToHeal determines are related to your account) and your access to the Services should we have reason to believe you, your Content, or your use of the Services violate our Terms. If we do so, it’s important to understand that you don’t have a contractual or legal right to continue to use our Services, for example, to sell or buy on our websites or mobile apps. Generally, GiftsToHeal will notify you that your account has been terminated or suspended, unless you’ve repeatedly violated our Terms or we have legal or regulatory reasons preventing us from notifying you.

If you or GiftsToHeal terminate your account, you may lose any information associated with your account, including Your Content.

We May Discontinue the Services GiftsToHeal reserves the right to change, suspend, or discontinue any of the Services for you, any or all users, at any time, for any reason, including those laid out in GiftsToHeal’s policies under these Terms of Use. We will not be liable to you for the effect that any changes to the Services may have on you, including your income or your ability to generate revenue through the Services.

Survival. The Terms will remain in effect even after your access to the Service is terminated, or your use of the Service ends.

8. Warranties and Limitation of Liability (or the Things You Can’t Sue Us For)

Items You Purchase. You understand that GiftsToHeal does not manufacture, store, or inspect any of the items sold through our Services. We provide the venue; the items in our marketplaces are produced, listed, and sold directly by independent sellers, so GiftsToHeal cannot and does not make any warranties about their quality, safety, or even their legality. Any legal claim related to an item you purchase must be brought directly against the seller of the item. You release GiftsToHeal from any claims related to items sold through our Services, including for defective items, misrepresentations by sellers, or items that caused physical injury (like product liability claims).

Content You Access. You may come across materials that you find offensive or inappropriate while using our Services. We make no representations concerning any content posted by users through the Services. GiftsToHeal is not responsible for the accuracy, copyright compliance, legality, or decency of content posted by users that you accessed through the Services. You release us from all liability relating to that content.

People You Interact With. You can use the Services to interact with other individuals, either online or in person. However, you understand that we do not screen users of our Services, and you release us from all liability relating to your interactions with other users. Please be careful and exercise caution and good judgment in all interactions with others, especially if you are meeting someone in person.

Third-Party Services. Our Services may contain links to third-party websites or services that we don’t own or control (for example, links to Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest). You may also need to use a third party’s product or service in order to use some of our Services (like a compatible mobile device to use our mobile apps). When you access these third-party services, you do so at your own risk. The third parties may require you to accept their own terms of use. GiftsToHeal is not a party to those agreements; they are solely between you and the third party.

Gift Cards and Promotions. You acknowledge that GiftsToHeal does not make any warranties with respect to your Gift Card balance and is not responsible for any unauthorized access to, or alteration, theft, or destruction of a Gift Card or Gift Card code that results from any action by you or a third party. You also acknowledge that we may suspend or prohibit use of your Gift Card if your Gift Card or Gift Card code has been reported lost or stolen, or if we believe your Gift Card balance is being used suspiciously, fraudulently, or in an otherwise unauthorized manner. If your Gift Card code stops working, your only remedy is for us to issue you a replacement Gift Card code. By participating in a special offer or promotion, you agree that you may not later claim that the rules of that special offer or promotion were ambiguous.




9. Indemnification (or What Happens If You Get Us Sued)

We hope this never happens, but if GiftsToHeal gets sued because of something that you did, you agree to defend and indemnify us. That means you’ll defend GiftsToHeal (including any of our employees) and hold us harmless from any legal claim or demand (including reasonable attorney’s fees) that arises from your actions, your use (or misuse) of our Services, your breach of the Terms, or you or your account’s infringement of someone else’s rights.

We reserve the right to handle our legal defense however we see fit, even if you are indemnifying us, in which case you agree to cooperate with us so we can execute our strategy.

10. Disputes with Other Users

If you find yourself in a dispute with another user of GiftsToHeal’s Services or a third party, we encourage you to contact the other party and try to resolve the dispute amicably.

Case System. Buyers and sellers who are unable to resolve a dispute related to a transaction on our websites or mobile apps may participate in our case system. GiftsToHeal will attempt to help you resolve disputes in good faith and based solely on our interpretation of our policies, in our sole discretion; we will not make judgments regarding legal issues or claims. GiftsToHeal has no obligation to resolve any disputes.

Release of GiftsToHeal. You release GiftsToHeal from any claims, demands, and damages arising out of disputes with other users or parties.

11. Disputes with GiftsToHeal

If you’re upset with us, let us know, and hopefully we can resolve your issue. But if we can’t, then these rules will govern any legal dispute involving our Services:

A. Governing Law. The Terms are governed by the laws of the State of Utah, without regard to its conflict of laws rules, and the laws of the United States of America. These laws will apply no matter where in the world you live, but if you live outside of the United States, you may be entitled to the protection of the mandatory consumer protection provisions of your local consumer protection law.

B. Arbitration. You and GiftsToHeal agree that any dispute or claim arising from or relating to the Terms shall be finally settled by final and binding arbitration, using the English language, administered by the American Arbitration Association (the “AAA”) under its Consumer Arbitration Rules (the "AAA Rules") then in effect (those rules are deemed to be incorporated by reference into this section, and as of the date of these Terms), unless otherwise required by law. **Arbitration, including threshold questions of arbitrability of the dispute, will be handled by a sole arbitrator in accordance with those rules. Judgment on the arbitration award may be entered in any court that has jurisdiction.

Any arbitration or mediation under the Terms will take place on an individual basis. You understand that by agreeing to the Terms, you and GiftsToHeal are each waiving the right to trial by jury or to participate in a class action lawsuit. Class arbitrations shall only be available if requested by either party under its Class Action Arbitration Rules and approved by the arbitration entity. Notwithstanding the foregoing, each party shall have the right to bring an action in a court of proper jurisdiction for injunctive or other equitable or conservatory relief, pending a final decision by the arbitrator or mediator. You may instead assert your claim in “small claims” court, but only if your claim qualifies, your claim remains in such court, and your claim remains on an individual, non-representative, and non-class basis.

C. Costs of Arbitration. Payment for any and all reasonable AAA filing, administrative, and arbitrator fees will be in accordance with the Consumer Arbitration Rules, and in the case of CEDR, its rules. If the value of your claim does not exceed $10,000 USD, GiftsToHeal will pay for the reasonable filing, administrative, and arbitrator fees associated with the arbitration, unless the arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought was frivolous or brought for an improper purpose. For mediation through CEDR, the parties will pay their share of mediation costs, and under certain conditions such fees may be refundable to you, depending on the outcome of the mediation.

D. Forum. We’re based in Utah, so any legal action against GiftsToHeal related to our Services must be filed and take place in Utah. For all actions under the AAA Rules, the proceedings may be filed where your residence is, or in Utah and any in-person hearings will be conducted at a location which is reasonably convenient to both parties taking into account their ability to travel and other pertinent circumstances. For any actions not subject to arbitration or mediation, you and GiftsToHeal agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of a state or federal court located in Utah if your contract is with GiftsToHeal.

E. Government Exception. If you are a government agent or entity in the United States using the Services in your official capacity, and you are legally unable to agree to the clauses in this section, then those clauses do not apply to you. In that case, the Terms and any action related to the Terms will be governed by the laws of the United States (without reference to conflict of laws) and, in the absence of federal law and to the extent permitted under federal law, the laws of the State of Utah.

F. Modifications. If we make any changes to this “Disputes with GiftsToHeal” section after the date you last accepted the Terms, those changes will not apply to any claims filed in a legal proceeding against GiftsToHeal prior to the date the changes became effective. GiftsToHeal will notify you of substantive changes to the “Disputes with GiftsToHeal” section at least 30 days prior to the date the change will become effective. If you do not agree to the modified terms, you may send GiftsToHeal a written notification (including email) or close your account within those 30 days. By rejecting a modified term or permanently closing your account, you agree to arbitrate any disputes between you and GiftsToHeal in accordance with the provisions of this “Disputes with GiftsToHeal” section as of the date you last accepted the Terms, including any changes made prior to your rejection. If you reopen your closed account or create a new account, you agree to be bound by the current version of the Terms.

12. Changes to the Terms

We may update these Terms from time to time. If we believe that the changes are material, we’ll definitely let you know by posting the changes through the Services and/or sending you an email or message about the changes. That way you can decide whether you want to continue using the Services. Changes will be effective upon the posting of the changes unless otherwise specified. You are responsible for reviewing and becoming familiar with any changes. Your use of the Services following the changes constitutes your acceptance of the updated Terms.

13. Some Finer Legal Points

The Terms, including all of the policies that make up the Terms, supersede any other agreement between you and GiftsToHeal regarding the Services. If any part of the Terms is found to be unenforceable, that part will be limited to the minimum extent necessary so that the Terms will otherwise remain in full force and effect. Our failure to enforce any part of the Terms is not a waiver of our right to later enforce that or any other part of the Terms. We may assign any of our rights and obligations under the Terms.

14. Contact Information

If you have any questions about the Terms, please email us at info@giftstoheal.com.

15. Access And Use Of The Donation Services

GiftsToHeal is not responsible for any offers, promises, rewards or Promotions (defined below) made or offered by Users or Fundraisers; such conduct violates these Terms of Service. We do not and cannot verify the information that Users or Fundraisers supply, nor do we represent or guarantee that the Donations will be used in accordance with any fundraising purpose prescribed by a User or Fundraiser or in accordance with applicable laws. Notwithstanding the foregoing, we take possible fraudulent activity and the misuse of funds raised very seriously. If you have reason to believe that a User or Fundraiser is not raising or using the funds for their stated purpose, please email us at support@giftstoheal.com to alert our team of this potential issue and we will investigate.

A. Donors are not permitted to impose restrictions on the use of Donations by a non-profit organization, established as such under the applicable laws of incorporation (“Charity”) . To the extent that a Donation is made in response to an appeal for a particular program of a Charity, or to the extent that a Donor purports to direct the use of Donations by a Charity, any such directions shall constitute non-binding recommendations only and the Charity shall have full discretion to determine how all Donations will be used.

B. GiftsToHeal makes no representation as to whether all or any portion of your Donations, including, if any, Transaction Fees, are tax deductible or eligible for tax credits. GiftsToHeal will have no liability for any claim by any federal, state, provincial, territorial, local or any other tax authority with respect to the characterization on any applicable tax return of any Donation by you, any User or any Charity. You should consult your tax advisor as to the amount of your Donation that is tax deductible or eligible for tax recognition, having regard to (among other things) the tax status of the recipient of any Donation in any relevant jurisdiction.

C. Unless the Donor opts-out of such disclosure, Donor acknowledges and agrees that, in accordance with the Privacy Policy, certain of Donor’s personal information will be shared with the Charity to which such Donor makes a Donation (including without limitation as part of a Donor List, as set forth below) and may be used by such Charity to issue official Donation receipts (or equivalent document) and in accordance with the Charity’s privacy policy. GiftsToHeal is not responsible, and shall not be liable, for any Charity’s use of any Donor information.

Organizer: You, as an Organizer, represent, warrant, and covenant that: (i) all information you provide in connection with a Fundraiser or Beneficiary is accurate, complete, and not likely to deceive reasonable Users; (ii) all Donations contributed to your Fundraiser will be used solely as described in the materials that you post or otherwise provide; (iii) if you withdraw donations believed by reasonable Donors to be raised on behalf of someone other than you (i.e., the Beneficiary), all Donations will be given to and/or spent on behalf of the Beneficiary; (iv) if you add a Beneficiary through the Services, you relinquish control of the Donations, including the ability to issue refunds; (v) you will not infringe the rights of others; (vi) you will comply with all relevant and applicable law and financial reporting obligations, including but not limited to laws and regulations relating to registration, tax reporting, political contributions, and asset disclosures for your Fundraiser; (vii) to the extent you share with us any personal data of any third party for any purpose, including the names, email addresses and phone numbers of your personal contacts, you have the authority (including any necessary consents), as required under applicable law, to provide us with such personal data and allow us to use such personal data for the purposes for which you shared it with us; and (viii) you will not provide or offer to provide goods or services in exchange for Donations.

Your Registration Obligations: You may be required to register with GiftsToHeal in order to access and use certain features of the Services. If you choose to register for the Services, you agree to provide and maintain true, accurate, current and complete information about yourself or your Charity as prompted by the Services’ registration form. Organizers must register using their true identities (or the identities of the Charities’ authorized representatives), including their name, address and any image or video purporting to depict the Organizer or the Beneficiary of such Fundraiser. You agree to keep registration information current and up to date.

Registration data and certain other information about you are governed by these Terms of Service, including our Privacy Policy. If you are under 13 years of age, you are not authorized to use the Services, with or without registering. In addition, if you are under the age of majority in your jurisdiction (typically 18 or 19 years of age), you may use the Services, with or without registering, only with the approval of your parent or guardian. Certain aspects of our Services may also require you to register with, and agree to the terms of, third-party service providers (e.g., Payment Processors), with whom GiftsToHeal has entered into contracts, in order to be able to benefit from their services. If GiftsToHeal or one of our Payments Processors at any time discovers that the information you provided about you or the purpose of your Fundraiser is incorrect or violates any of these Terms of Service or their terms of service, your access to the Services may be suspended and/or terminated with immediate effect and fines may be applied by relevant authorities, which will in all such cases be payable by you. You acknowledge and agree that the use of Payment Processors are integral to the Services and that we exchange information with such third parties in order to facilitate the provision of Services as set out in our Privacy Policy.

Funeral Homes:  The GiftsToHeal Services include the features and services described here. All Donations are subject to a Transaction Fee for each Donation.

A.Chargebacks and Refunds. Occasionally, a Donor may dispute a credit card charge for a Donation through the Services.

  1. If Donations were made through Stripe, the Funeral Home or Charity has control over the Donations and Funeral Home/Charity, rather than GiftsToHeal or Stripe, is responsible for issuing refunds and handling chargebacks directly with Donors.

B. Receiving Funds. As a Funeral Home or Charity, receipt of Donations, minus any applicable Transaction Fees, is based upon and subject to the applicable Payment Processor’s procedures and terms. Available Payment Processors are described under “Payment Processors for Funeral Homes or Charities” below. GiftsToHeal is not a payment processor and does not hold funds.

D. Taxes.  GiftsToHeal does not withhold funds for tax purposes or otherwise. Recipients of funds will be solely responsible for taxes based on applicable international, federal, state, local or any other taxes or levies, or for any applicable taxes based on their net income or gross receipts (if any). Donations delivered to a Funeral Home on behalf of an individual will be treated as such. The Funeral Home will only receive donations for individuals who are engaged in receiving Funeral Home services. These donations will be applied to the individual’s funeral expenses or delivered to the next of kin of the individual receiving the services.

E. Donor Lists and Other Data.  A Funeral Home or Charity may access information about an Organizer of a Fundraiser, Donor Lists (defined below) and Donor Data (defined below) for compliance and transactional purposes. Please contact us at support@giftstoheal.com with any questions. “Donor Data” means a Donor’s name, address, email address, Donation amount, date of transaction, transaction identification number, and name of the project. THE LIST OF DONORS WHO CONTRIBUTE TO A CHARITY’S FUNDRAISER THROUGH THE SERVICES (“DONOR LISTS”) IS PROVIDED “AS IS,” AND GiftsToHeal MAKES NO REPRESENTATIONS, WARRANTIES OR GUARANTEES ABOUT THE ACCURACY, COMPLETENESS OR TIMELINESS OF ANY DONOR LIST OR ANY INFORMATION CONTAINED THEREIN. Unless a Donor checks the “anonymous” checkbox at the time of Donation, by using the Services, the Donor consents to the disclosure of Donor’s Donor Data as described herein, including without limitation, disclosure as part of a  Donor List.

Taxes: It is your responsibility to determine what, if any, taxes apply to the Donations you receive through your use of the Services. It is solely your responsibility to assess, collect, report or remit the correct tax, if any, to the appropriate tax authority.

Content Manifestly Made Public by the User.

A. Public Content; Public Display of Information and Donations. Some of your activity on and through the Services is public, such as content you post publicly on the Platform (including descriptions, texts, music, sound, information, data, software, graphics, comments, photos, videos, images, trademarks, logos, brands or other materials you upload or post through the Services or share with other Users or recipients) (“User Content”). Additionally, User profile information, including your first and last name, public email address, organization, personal biography, and other information you enter in connection with your User profile may be displayed to other Users to facilitate User interaction within the Services. For example, as an Organizer, you might post your personal data – such as information about a recent hospital stay – which data might be considered sensitive data. Please remember that if you choose to provide information using certain public features of the Services, then that information is governed by the privacy settings of those particular features and may be publicly available. Individuals reading such information may use or disclose it to other individuals or entities without our knowledge and without your knowledge, and search engines may index that information. We therefore urge you to think carefully about including any specific information you may deem private in content that you create or information that you submit through the Services. Please see our Privacy Policy for information on the ways that we may collect, use, and store certain information about you and your use of the Services.

B. Other Information. Please be advised that User Content and other information, solicited or unsolicited, that you provide to GiftsToHeal may be publicly accessible, such as information you post in forums, comment sections or in response to surveys we may send out. We also collect information through customer support communications, your communications to us of ideas for new products or modifications to existing products, and other unsolicited submissions, or any questions, comments, suggestions, ideas, feedback or other information about the Services (collectively, with publicly-accessible information, “Other Information”). By sending us Other Information, (a) you agree that we are under no obligation of confidentiality, expressed or implied, with respect to the Other Information; (b) you acknowledge that we may have something similar to the Other Information already under consideration or in development; (c) you agree that GiftsToHeal will be entitled to the unrestricted use and dissemination of the Other Information for any purpose, commercial or otherwise, without acknowledgment or compensation to you; (d) you represent and warrant that you have all rights necessary to submit the Other Information; (e) to the extent necessary, you hereby grant to GiftsToHeal a fully paid, royalty-free, perpetual, irrevocable, worldwide, non-exclusive, and fully transferable and sublicensable right (through multiple tiers) and license to use, reproduce, perform, display, distribute, adapt, modify, re-format, create derivative works of, and otherwise commercially or non-commercially exploit in any manner, any and all Other Information, and to sublicense the foregoing rights; and (f) you irrevocably waive, and cause to be waived, against GiftsToHeal and its Users any claims and assertions of any moral rights contained in such Other Information. This Other Information section shall survive any termination of your account or the Services.

You acknowledge and agree that GiftsToHeal may preserve Other Information, as well as User Content, and may also disclose your Other Information or User Content if required to do so by law or in the good-faith belief that such preservation or disclosure is reasonably necessary to (a) comply with legal process, applicable laws or government requests; (b) enforce these Terms of Service; (c) respond to claims that any User Content violates the rights of third parties; or (d) protect the rights, property, or personal safety of GiftsToHeal, its Users or the public.

Third-Party Communications: If you use any feature of the Services that allows you to communicate with third parties (such as to refer a third party to the Services or to communicate with them regarding a Fundraiser or a donation), either by submitting data about the third party (“Third-Party Data”) to the Services or otherwise permitting the Services to automatically access Third-Party Data in your possession, you acknowledge and agree that you have the authority of the relevant third party for us to access and use the relevant Third-Party Data and that you have notified these third parties and informed them how their information is collected and used by GiftsToHeal to provide the Services.

We use Third-Party Data to (a) contact such third party using the Third-Party Data provided, and/or (b) provide you with an editable template message designed to facilitate communications between you and such third party through the Services. In addition to sending the foregoing communications, we may also send reminders or related messages to you and to third parties on your behalf from time to time where permitted by applicable law. In each case, any such communication sent to third parties using Third-Party Data will provide a means to “opt out” of receiving further communication of the same nature.

Data Retention: You acknowledge that GiftsToHeal has no obligation to you to retain data relating to any account or Fundraiser. You acknowledge that GiftsToHeal reserves the right to delete data or to terminate accounts or Fundraisers at any time and for any reason, with or without notice, and without any liability to you or to any third party for any claims, damages, costs or losses resulting therefrom.

Donations: In order to contribute to a Fundraiser or to a Charity, a Donor will be required to provide GiftsToHeal information regarding the Donor’s credit card or other payment instrument (“Payment Instrument”) that is linked to the Donor’s GiftsToHeal account (a “Billing Account”). You, as a Donor, represent and warrant to GiftsToHeal that such information is true, current and accurate and that you are authorized to use the applicable Payment Instrument. You agree that a certain minimum Donation amount may apply, and that all Donations are final and will not be refunded unless GiftsToHeal, in its sole discretion, agrees to issue a refund. GiftsToHeal uses third-party payment processing partners to bill you through your Payment Instrument and Billing Account for any Donations made, and Donors acknowledge that by contributing a Donation to a Fundraiser, the Donor agrees to the processing, use, transfer or disclosure of data by the Payment Processors pursuant to these Terms of Service as well as any and all applicable terms set forth by our payment partners.  Our current Payment Processor includes: Stripe, Inc.
