ABOUT GIVELIFY (Pronounced Giv-luh-fahy)
The Givelify website, web application, and mobile applications are products of Givelify, a registered LLC in the State of Indiana. The Givelify software and other technologies have been designed, architected and developed by Control-Z LLC.
Givelify provides services for not-for-profit organizations, such as religious organizations, charitable organizations, not for profit events, fundraisers, and political events, (each, a “Donee”)—to receive payments made by users of the Site (each, a “Donor”).
Pursuant to this Agreement, Donee appoints Givelify as its agent for receipt of payments from Donor (each a “Payment”). Donee represents that it is party to a separate agreement with each Donor (such as, for example, a promise to donate) for which it receives payment hereunder and that payments received by Donee hereunder are only pursuant to that agreement. Givelify is not an agent of Donor in receiving Payments. Givelify is not a bank, money transmitter, or other money services business, as defined by the Bank Secrecy Act or state banking law. The relationship of Givelify to each Donee shall also be governed pursuant to the rules and regulations of Visa and MasterCard, where Givelify is a payment facilitator or payment processor and the Donee is a merchant, such rules are available here and are incorporated herein by reference:
- https://usa.visa.com/dam/VCOM/download/about-visa/visa-rules-public.pdf and
- https://www.mastercard.us/content/dam/mccom/global/documents/mastercard-rules.pdf (collectively, the “Rules”).
