SHOPPING TERMS AND PRIVACY

 

Last updated: December 2015

 

The Shopping Terms and Privacy page is part of the Terms of Use that governs User participation for the Flipcause Site. This page describes Shopping Terms and our Privacy Policy applicable to you as a Shopper. From time to time, we may modify the Shopping Terms and Privacy described on this page in accordance with theTerms of Use. All capitalized terms used on this page that are not defined on this page have the meanings given to them in the Terms of Use.

 

1. SUMMARY OF THE FLIPCAUSE.COM SHOPPING PLATFORM

 

Flipcause.com is a platform that enables Account Holders to raise funds when their Supporters shop through 3rd party Merchants or links provided by Flipcause. Once a referred Shopper makes a Qualified Purchase with a Merchant listed on the Flipcause platform, a Shopping Contribution is credited to the Account Holder. Flipcause.com also offers many other tools designed to help Account Holders engage Supporters and raise funds.

 

2. ACCOUNT HOLDER VERIFICATION

 

To protect the integrity of the Site, all Account Holders must be awarded “Verified” or “Non Profit Verified” status by the Flipcause verification department prior to being awarded a Marketplace.  Financial information and identities of all Account Holders are verified by several methods.  Additionally, all nonprofit Account Holders have their 501(c)(3) status verified using the most recent IRS information.

 

3. ADVERTISING FEES, SHOPPING CONTRIBUTIONS AND PAYMENTS

 

3.1. Flipcause participates in affiliate advertising programs designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to sites within affiliate programs. Flipcause pays Account Holders a Shopping Contribution for referring Qualified Purchases to the Site that generate an advertising fee. The Account Holder receives at least fifty percent (50%) of the advertising fee, at the time it was paid, as a Shopping Contribution except where otherwise noted in Shopping Contributions Payment Exceptions Section (17) of the Terms of Use, the remainder goes to Flipcause so that we can continue to offer and operate our Services.

 

3.2. Shopping Contribution amounts Flipcause pays Account Holders can be found in any Marketplace located on any Campaign page with an active Marketplace. Please note: Affiliates listed within any Marketplaces do not have any connections to Account Holders on the Site. Affiliates do not in any way support, sponsor, endorse, or contribute to any charity or other cause on the Site. All advertising fees generated through the Site are the sole property of Flipcause. Flipcause reserves the right to cancel any Shopping Contributions earned by Account Holders if they are found to be in violation of these Terms and Conditions.

 

3.3. Shopping Contribution percentages listed on the Flipcause Site represent the amount that goes to the Account Holder (not the full commission amount). Flipcause uses commercially reasonable efforts to ensure the accuracy of these numbers. However, as Merchants change their commissions frequently and often vary the changes by product or service, actual commissions and resulting Shopping Contributions may vary. Flipcause has no control over Merchant policies and is not responsible for variances in Shopping Contributions. The posted Shopping Contribution amounts are based on typical advertising fees paid by Merchants to Flipcause. Certain Affiliate Merchants exclude a limited number of products and purchases from their affiliate programs. Flipcause does its best to minimize and maintain a list of these exclusions on each Marketplace on the Site.

 

3.4. In order for an Account Holder to earn a Shopping Contribution, Shoppers must complete a purchase during the same shopping session started after clicking on a Marketplace link on the Flipcause Site. If Shoppers visit other sites before completing a purchase, already have items in their carts or use coupons not provided by Flipcause, purchases may be associated with a service other than Flipcause and Account Holders may not earn a Shopping Contribution from that purchase.

 

3.5. After Shopping Contributions have cleared, the Shopping Contribution will be made available in the Account Holder’s Account Balance and may be Withdrawn at any time.  Flipcause will not pay Account Holders a Shopping Contribution if Flipcause did not receive an advertising fee for a purchase originating from the Account Holder’s Marketplace. Further, we may reverse a Shopping Contribution if a Merchant reverses advertising fees to Flipcause. Flipcause does not guarantee payment of any Shopping Contribution to Account Holders.

 

3.6. Shopping Contributions typically post within three business days of payment, though some Merchants take longer to report advertising fees to Flipcause. If you notice a missing or inaccurate Shopping Contribution that is not corrected within 15 business days after your payment has been processed, please contact us. We will contact the Merchant and try to resolve the issue. (See Shopping Contributions Payment Exceptions Section (17) of the Terms of Use, for details on transactions that may not show up for a Cause).

 

3.7. When contacting us to resolve a Shopping Contribution error, please include the information found on your receipt, including the name of the Merchant, purchase date, order number, items purchased, total price, and your contact information as you provided it to the Merchant (name, address, phone number, and email address). Please do not include a credit card number.

 

3.8. Flipcause.com is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking amazon.com. Amazon and the Amazon logo are trademarks of Amazon.com, Inc. or its affiliates.

 

3.9. Amazon, the Amazon logo, AmazonSupply, and the AmazonSupply logo are trademarks of Amazon.com, Inc. or its affiliates.

 

4. PRIVACY

 

Flipcause may collect data about its Users for internal use and use by Affiliates. Purchases made by Shoppers on Merchant sites after following a link on Flipcause.com are tracked by a third party.  That third party shares information about these purchases with Flipcause through various reports.  The shared information does not include individual identifiable information. For privacy, Flipcause never shares individually identifiable shopping data with its Users or anyone else except as described in the Privacy Policy. Non-identifiable information such as purchase amount and eligible commissions are shared publicly and with Account Holders to correctly attribute all eligible Shopping Contributions.
