Participation by Non Profits
Participation with GivingPal is subject to approval. GivingPal reserves the right to refuse participation to any organization, including non profits, at any time and at its sole discretion. Participation is limited to registered non profit organizations which must maintain their valid status through the time of the scheduled donation by GivingPal.
The non profit associated with a cause will receive donations from GivingPal from purchase referrals in accordance with the listed give back rates specified by GivingPal. GivingPal sends each charity a check once a year by the end of the February for purchasing made by the end of August in the previous year, providing the organization has accrued $20 or more in referral earnings for purchases made between September 1st and August 31st of the previous year. If the organization has multiple causes the cumulative sum of the earnings from associated causes will be donated. If a charity earned less than $20, those funds will be allocated toward featured organizations that have met the minimum earnings requirement and or at the discretion of GivingPal.
To guarantee proper payment, participants are exclusively responsible for providing and maintaining up to date and accurate account information including: EID, contact, mailing address and payment information. Returned or cancelled check fees due to contact or payment information error or omission may be deducted from future payment. Participants agree to pay all applicable taxes or charges imposed by any government entity in connection with their participation in the Site. GivingPal may change its service and payment structure at any time. If you dispute any payment or non-payment made under the Program, you must notify GivingPal in writing within thirty (30) days of any such payment or by March 31st for non-payment; failure to notify GivingPal shall result in the waiver by you of any claim relating to any such disputed payment. Payment shall be calculated exclusively based on records maintained by GivingPal. No other records of any kind shall be accepted by GivingPal or have any effect under this Agreement.
