In addition, the Project Owner expressly agrees that the content and information provided may be used on the Site alongside brands or logos belonging to the Company's partners.
13.3 Rearing period
When a project is published on the site, he enters a Rearing period (like any good wine!). The Rearing period is included in the Fundraising period and holds every prerogative of it, except the listing of the project on the site. Once a project has received 5 contributions, he leaves the Rearing period and will then be directly accessible from the site and the categories in which he would have been indexed.
13.4 Project development
At of the end of the Fundraising Period and throughout the Compensation Validity Period, the Project Owner agrees to provide Fundoviners with their Compensation or Rewards.
The Company cannot be held responsible for the actions of Project Owners, who remain solely responsible for the terms agreed with Fundoviners with regard to Donations on the Site.
Project Owners are solely responsible for collecting Donations received via the Site and for organizing the distribution of Compensation rewarded to Fundoviners who contribute to Projects published on the Site. Therefore, any risks involved in the development and organization of a Project, as well as delays and possible cancellations are borne entirely by the Project Owners.
If a Project is cancelled, but the Fundraising target has been reached, the Project Owner agrees, at its sole discretion, to refund contributors to the Project and the Company shall not be liable for reimbursing Donations collected via the Site.
The Project Owner agrees to indemnify the Company against any damage it may suffer, and to protect it against any action for damages that may be brought against the Company by a Member, a Visitor or, more generally, by third parties, for any infringement of rights arising from the publication of a Project on the Site or its implementation.
14.1 Collecting Donations
When they sign up, Project Owners may choose to appeal for Donations for one or more Projects published on the Site. Based on the information published on the Site, Fundoviners may choose the Project Owners who will benefit from their Donations and, where applicable, make their Donations to support the development of one or more Projects under the terms set out herein.
The minimum amount of the Target Fundraising for a Project is 100 € (one hundred euros).
Fundoviners are entirely free to choose the Donation amount (minimum amount greater than or equal to 5 € (five euros)) and the Projects that will benefit from their Donations.
It should be noted that the contribution of Donations by Fundoviners should not be construed as establishing any form of contractual relationship between the Fundoviner and the Company. The Company acts as an intermediary between the Project Owner and the Fundoviner for the promotion of the Project.
14.2 Paying Donations
The Company uses the Mangopay system to secure online payments via the Site.
Fundoviners make their payments by credit card (Visa, Carte Bleue, Eurocard and MasterCard) to the aforementioned bank account in order to support Projects on the Site.
The Company, acting as authorized agent, undertakes to pay Project Owners the amounts corresponding to Donations made by Fundoviners on the Site.
If a payment made on the Site is considered as a purchase, it will be subject to value added tax at the applicable rate. The Fundoviner agrees to pay all amounts due, including taxes. The Fundoviner is solely responsible for the payment.
A secure payment server is provided by the Company to ensure that all information on the Site remains confidential. The secure payment server checks the validity of the credit card used, grants authorization for payment and sends confirmation automatically to the Company.
Transaction completion is subject to validation of the payment. To make a Donation, the Fundovinor enters his credit card number via the secure payment server and the payment is debited immediately.
If the Fundraising Target has been reached once the Donation Period has expired, the Donations made by Fundoviners are credited to the Project Owner's bank. If the Fundraising Target is not reached once the Donation Period has expired, the Donations already made are considered as canceled and the Company will refund them in accordance with Article 14.5.
14.3 Invoicing Donations
The Company does not receive any direct commission for Donations from Fundovinors. Such fees are borne by the Project Owner who benefits from the Donations.
For Project Owners who receive the Donations, the fees charged by the Company for its Services are calculated as a percentage of Donations collected on the Site. The percentage applied is 8% (eight per cent) including tax. Service fees are automatically deducted from the Donations collected on the Site when the Company credits the Project Owner's bank account. This payment is made at least 10 (ten) Business Days after the Fundraising Target has been reached and once the required Donation amount has been confirmed by the Company. Once the Fundraising objective has been achieved, the Project Owner receives an invoice via his Member Account.
14.4 Monitoring Donations
The Site provides Fundoviners with information received from Project Owners concerning the launch and progress of Projects they supported and, where applicable, on completion of the Project, it provides results of the Projects funded by Fundoviners.
14.5 Cancelling Donations
Throughout the Fundraising Period, the Fundoviner has the right to withdraw a Donation made on the Site. Once this period expires, the Donation will be considered as permanently awarded to the Project, unless payment is rejected when the Fundoviner's bank account is debited, or if the Fundraising Target is not reached at the end of the Fundraising Period.
If the Project is cancelled during the Fundraising Period or if the Fundraising Target is not reached by the end of the aforementioned period, the Donations will be considered as cancelled and the corresponding amounts will be credited automatically to the Fundoviners' bank accounts.
The Project Owner shall inform the Company and the Fundoviners if a Project is cancelled after the Fundraising Period has expired, specifying the reason for the cancellation. Donations made by Fundoviners on the Site will be considered as cancelled and the Company will refund them within a maximum of 7 (seven) Business Days following cancellation of the Project.
14.6 Tax receipts
Each Member shall ensure full payment of all applicable taxes. This applies to both Donations collected on the Site by Project Owners, and Donations made by Fundoviners to support Projects.
If they receive requests, Project Owners agree to issue and send tax receipts directly to Fundoviners who make Donations on the Site. All Fundoviners must check that they are eligible to receive tax deductions on all or part of Donations made through the Site, in accordance with French legislation.

To carry out such a transaction, You must Login to the Website and place a money transfer order via the dedicated Payment Page. For any payment, You may be asked to enter a single-use code on the Payment Page, which You will receive on Your mobile phone.

The Issuer may refuse any payment at its sole discretion and without giving rise to any right to compensation. The transaction is carried out by Your Card issuer.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, You may receive a Reimbursement of Electronic Money in accordance with article 32.4.4.
The registration of Electronic Money in the User's name is subject to the actual receipt of funds by the Issuer less the costs agreed in the Financial Conditions.
In the event that the transfer of funds is cancelled by the Card issuer following a dispute, for whatever reason, the Issuer may, upon receipt of the information, suspend or cancel any Payment Transaction, close the Account concerned, debit, at any time, the Account for the amount of Electronic Money corresponding to the funds of the cancelled transfer and recover the amount due from the User by any means.

The Electronic Money is stored for an indefinite duration on the User's Account by the Issuer under the agreed Financial Conditions.
The Electronic Money purchased is credited to the User's Account, following the receipt of the funds transferred by Card (or any other means accepted by the Issuer). The amount to be credited is equal to such funds less the corresponding costs as provided in the Financial Conditions.
Upon the User's Order, the Electronic Money corresponding to the amount of the Payment Transaction or Reimbursement is debited from its Account and the related costs, as provided in the Financial Conditions.
The Issuer is entitled, at any time, to reimburse an amount of available Electronic Money on the Account equal to the charges due and payable, as provided in the Financial Conditions.

Before transmitting an Order, the User must be sure to have a sufficient amount of Electronic Money available to cover the Payment Transaction amount and the related costs as agreed in the Financial Conditions.
Where appropriate, the User must acquire a sufficient amount of Electronic Money in accordance with article 4.1 before an Order can be legitimately transmitted to the Issuer for execution. The Electronic Money may be issued and stored by the User, provided that the corresponding funds are duly received by the Issuer.

The User then gives his/her consent to the Order and the Order becomes irrevocable when the User clicks on the validation tab on the form. The User then receives a confirmation email on a date referred as the 'Date of Receipt'.
In certain cases, the User may fill in a single form containing the purchase of Electronic Money as provided in article 32.4.1 and an Order in compliance with the previous paragraph.

For this purpose, the Recipient must provide the IBAN number and SWIFT code of his/her bank or payment account as well as his/her address. This account must be opened by a bank or a payment institution, based in a European Union Member State or in a State party to the agreement on the European Economic Area.

The User may dispute an authorised transaction whose exact amount is undefined or those whose final amount is not that which he/she could have reasonably expected taking into account his/her profile, previous expenditures and the Framework Contract conditions. This request must be submitted to the Issuer within 8 weeks of the execution of the Order on the Account. The Issuer must reimburse the User within a period of 10 Business Days after receipt of the request, if the latter proves justified, taking into account applicable laws, and whether the request consists of all the components necessary for examination by the Issuer. The Issuer reserves the right to refuse such a reimbursement, which will be explained and notified to the User. The latter will provide the necessary information in order to determine the circumstances of the Payment Transaction. The Issuer reserves the right not to reimburse the fees resulting from the Payment Transactions concerned.

The Issuer will not intervene in any way in the legal and commercial relationships and any litigation arising between the Recipient and the User. The Issuer has no control over the compliance, security, legality, characteristics and appropriateness of the products subject to a Payment Transaction. In this respect, it is up to the User to obtain all useful information before proceeding to the purchase of a product or service, the collection of funds or any other transaction, in full knowledge of all the considerations involved. Any transaction carried out by the User gives rise to a contract directly formed between him/her and the Recipient(s) with whom the Issuer has no contact. The Issuer cannot, under any circumstances, be held liable for the non-performance or poor execution of obligations that may result, or possible damages caused to the User in this respect.
If the Issuer fails to comply with the Framework Contact, the Issuer is responsible for any loss or damage You suffer that is a foreseeable result of the Issuer breaching this contract or failing to use reasonable care and skill when providing its services under the Framework Contract, but the Issuer is not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable or which is not caused by its failures. Loss or damage is foreseeable if either it is obvious that it will happen or if, at the time the contract was made, both the Issuer and You knew it might happen.
You acknowledge and agree that the Issuer will not be responsible to You for any loss or damage You suffer in connection with the use of the Issuer's service where such loss or damage is caused by Your acts or omissions or by those of a third party including, but not limited to:
(a) Your failure to provide the Issuer with accurate, complete and up to date information; or (b) You losing or allowing third parties to gain access to your Login and password.
The Issuer will take reasonable care to ensure that any data it holds in relation to You and Your Accounts is secure. However, You acknowledge and agree that a service provided via the internet cannot be completely secure and the Issuer will only be responsible to You for loss or damage to Your data to the extent that it is caused by the Issuer's failure to take such reasonable care.
Whilst the Issuer will use its reasonable efforts to make sure that its service is available to You when You want to use it, the Issuer makes no promise or guarantee that its service will be uninterrupted or error free and the Issuer will not be responsible to You for such errors or interruptions.
The Issue will not be responsible to You for any loss of profit, loss of business, business interruption or loss of business opportunity.

The Issuer has no further obligations after having confirmed with the User the transfer to the bank account indicated or the credit to the Card of the amount of the Electronic Money.

It is envisaged that the Framework Contract will be automatically terminated in the event of new circumstances affecting the ability of one Party to commit to these conditions.
32.11. Right of Cancellation

The User recognises that the Issuer can, at any time, stop or delay the use of a Login, access to an Account or the execution of a Payment Transaction or a Reimbursement in the absence of sufficient information pertaining to its purpose or nature. He/she is informed that a transaction carried out within the framework of these conditions may be subject to the national financial intelligence unit's right to disclosure.
The User can, in accordance with the legislation, access all of the information disclosed, provided this right to access does not undermine the purpose of the fight against money laundering and terrorism financing of terrorism, where this data concerns the applicant.
No prosecutions or civil liability actions can be brought or any professional sanction taken against the Issuer, its managers or employees who have reported their suspicions in good faith to the national authority.
32.13 Personal data and professional secrecy
The User's personal data provided in connection with the opening of the Account, is used by the Issuer for the purposes of managing his/her Account, Payment Transactions and Reimbursements.
The User agrees that his/her contact details and personal information obtained by the Issuer in connection with the Framework Contract may be transmitted to operational providers, with whom the Issuer has a contractual relationship, with the sole purpose of executing Payment Transactions and providing the services under the Framework Contract, provided that these third party recipients of personal data are subject to regulations guaranteeing a sufficient level of protection. The list of the third party recipients of the User's data is available upon request from the Issuer's compliance manager at the following address: firstname.lastname@example.org.

The User may, at any time, object to receiving commercial solicitations, amend his/her contact details or object to their disclosure by sending a notification by registered mail or e-mail to the customer service address of the Issuer.
The Issuer will store the personal information and data for a maximum legal or regulatory period applicable depending on the purpose of each type of data processing.
32.14 Inactive Accounts
Any Account that is inactive for a period of 12 (twelve) months will receive a notification of inactivity by email from the Issuer followed by a reminder a month later.
If there is no response or use of available Electronic Money within this period, or in the event of the death of the User, the Issuer may close the Account and keep it active for the sole purpose of the Reimbursement of Electronic Money. The right of Reimbursement may be subject to time limits pursuant to the law of the residence of the User, with such time limits starting from the last transaction on the Account. In the event of death, the Electronic Money can only be reimbursed to the User's assignee.
An Account that has been closed will not permit the further use of Electronic Money.

Neither Party will be liable or responsible for any failure to perform, or delay in performance of, any of their obligations under the Framework Contract that is caused by an Event Outside The Control of a Party.
