We run a service called GETYOURDONATION and would love for you to use it. Our basic service is free for individuals and organizations, and we offer paid upgrades for advanced features such as the Foundation Account. Our service is designed to give you as much control and ownership over what goes on your account as possible and encourage you to express yourself freely. However, be responsible in what you publish. In particular, make sure that none of the prohibited items listed below appear on your publicly available pages or get linked to from your account (things like spam, viruses, or hate content). You can check our page on types of accounts to get a sense of the type of content that are welcome on our service (or not!). If you find a GETYOURDONATION account that you believe violates our terms of service, please let us know.
Responsibility of Contributors. If you operate an account, comment on an account, post material to the Website, post links on the Website, or otherwise make (or allow any third party to make) material available by means of the Website (any such material, "Content"), You are entirely responsible for the content of, and any harm resulting from, that Content. That is the case regardless of whether the Content in question constitutes text, graphics, an audio file, or computer software. By making Content available, you represent and warrant that:
By submitting Content to GETYOURDONATION for inclusion on your Website, you grant GETYOURDONATION a world-wide, royalty-free, and non-exclusive license to reproduce, modify, adapt and publish the Content solely for the purpose of displaying, distributing and promoting your account. If you delete Content, GETYOURDONATION will use reasonable efforts to remove it from the Website, but you acknowledge that caching or references to the Content may not be made immediately unavailable. Without limiting any of those representations or warranties, GETYOURDONATION has the right (though not the obligation) to, in GETYOURDONATION’s sole discretion (i) refuse or remove any content that, in GETYOURDONATION’s reasonable opinion, violates any GETYOURDONATION policy or is in any way harmful or objectionable, or (ii) terminate or deny access to and use of the Website to any individual or entity for any reason, in GETYOURDONATION’s sole discretion. GETYOURDONATION will have no obligation to provide a refund of any amounts previously paid.

By selecting a service you agree to pay GETYOURDONATION the subscription fees indicated for that service (the payment terms for the Foundation Account are described below). Payments will be charged on the day you sign up for a service and will cover the use of that service for a monthly or other period as indicated. Any monthly fee shall be due and payable to GETYOURDONATION in advance on the billing date as displayed in the service. GETYOURDONATION reserves the right to suspend the accounts of users who fail to make payments on their selected paying plan.

Donations. Every charity or organization featured has a contractual agreement with GETYOURDONATION. By clicking the "Donate" button when making a donation, you agree to these Terms, including without limitation this section. You understand that this section does not constitute legal or accounting advice, and that you should consult your own tax advisor for information regarding the tax consequences to you of your donation. You understand that the tax rules governing the deductibility of your donation are complex and will differ depending on many factors, including your country of citizenship. You understand that, generally, a U.S. individual may not claim a personal U.S. income tax deduction for any charitable donation to a non-U.S. organization.
You understand that your contribution is to the GETYOURDONATION, that processes donations and disburses funds to charities and organizations based on donor recommendations made through the GETYOURDONATION website. You agree that, like any tax-deductible charitable contribution, your donation is non-refundable and cannot be cancelled or returned once it has been completed.
You agree that the GETYOURDONATION will deduct a small transaction fee from your donation to cover standard processing costs and that this fee is deducted before the GETYOURDONATION disburses your donation to the charity or organization. Your credit card statement will list GETYOURDONATION as the merchant. If you have questions related to the donation process, please contact the GETYOURDONATION at firstname.lastname@example.org. GETYOURDONATION or the GETYOURDONATION is not responsible for any dissatisfaction you may have regarding the recipient organization's use of any donation you may make through the Website or websites powered by us. Please note that the recipient organization reserves the right to use your donation for its general purposes. GETYOURDONATION cannot guarantee that funds will be earmarked for a particular appeal, unless specifically stated by the recipient organization itself. When a donation is made on the Website the transaction is final and not disputable unless unauthorized use of your payment card is proved. If you become aware of fraudulent use of your card, or if it is lost or stolen, you must notify your card provider in accordance with its reporting rules.
Donor's Responsibility of Due Diligence. While it is the desire of GETYOURDONATION to maintain an accurate and up-to-date database of organizations and their projects, we cannot and do not screen each individual cause and project, nor do we make any warranties about the accuracy or authenticity of any causes and projects. This service is offered free of charge for donors and we rely on the integrity of all users to represent themselves honestly and accurately. We require all organizations on this site to abide by policies and guidelines. Additionally, each participating organization's bank account must be verified by its local bank to reduce the likelihood of posting misleading or dishonest information. Also, because organizations and projects on this site will be viewed by numerous experienced and discerning donors, it is likely that any counterfeit proposals would be detected quickly. GETYOURDONATION will investigate all such reports of abuse from its users. Any organization found to have posted false or misleading information will be banned from further use of this site. Nevertheless, donors are strongly encouraged to perform their own due diligence on the organizations and projects they find in the GETYOURDONATION directory, bearing in mind that these organizations and projects are not "approved" by GETYOURDONATION, nor has their authenticity been validated in any way by us. Possible investigative steps you may want to consider include:
