THE PLATFORM

2. Platform Description: 

The Pixhug™ platform is a suite of computer software and services, consisting of among others, a website and mobile applications, designed to allow a user to upload content, including but not limited to text, photographs and video, to the Pixhug™ website or mobile applications, and thereafter transmit and/or share that content with third-party websites or mobile applications for the express purpose of generating Donations to benefit a Campaign (the “Platform”). Users of the Platform may include Donors, Charities and other registered and non-registered users thereof (including users who solely participate in Engagement with a Campaign but do not otherwise interact with the Platform).

3. Pixhug™ is a Platform; We are not a Broker, Commercial Co-Venture, Fundraisers (Professional or Otherwise), Paid Solicitor, Fundraising Counsel, Financial Institution, Creditor or Charitable Institution: 

The Platform is an administrative platform only. Pixhug™ facilitates a Donation transaction between Donors and Charities through the measurement of Engagement via the Platform, but is not a party to any agreement between a Donor or Charity, or between any user and a Charity. Pixhug™ is not a broker, commercial co-venture, fundraiser (professional or otherwise), paid solicitor, fundraising counsel, agent, financial institution, creditor or insurer for any user, Donor or Charity. Pixhug™ makes no representations or warranties with regards to (i) the charitable nature of the Donation or whether any tax benefit is available to the Donor as a result of a Donation; (ii) the use by the Charity of any Donation received from a Donor; or (iii) the timely payment of a Donation by a Donor (whether on the termination of a Campaign or otherwise).

Campaigns are not charities to which you can make tax-deductible charitable contributions. You understand and acknowledge that Pixhug™ is not a Charity nor a Donor and that you will not be receiving any charitable tax benefit from either Pixhug™ or the Donor as a result of your Engagement with a Campaign. Pixhug™ enables Donors to contribute to Charities through the Platform by facilitating the measurement of Engagement caused or contributed to by you, which are assigned a monetary value by Donors, and upon reaching a certain pre-assigned threshold, will trigger the requirement for a Donation to be made by a Donor to a Charity in accordance with the terms of the Campaign to which the Donor and Charity have agreed. The Donation is made directly by the Donor to the Charity; Pixhug™ bears no responsibility for paying the Donation nor ensuring that it is made. Any Engagement facilitated through the Platform will be subject to a Platform Fee.

7. Access and Use of the Platform - General

We do not and cannot verify the information that Donors or Charities supply, nor do we guarantee that the Donations will be used in accordance with any fundraising purpose prescribed by a Donor or Charity. We assume no responsibility to verify whether the Donations are used in accordance with any applicable laws; such responsibility rests solely with the Donor or Charity, as applicable.

While we have no obligation to verify that the use of any funds raised is in accordance with applicable law and these Terms, we take possible fraudulent activity and the misuse of funds raised very seriously. If you have reason to believe that a Donor or Charity is not raising or using the funds for their stated purpose, please alert our team through the contact information provided in Section 39 of this potential issue and we will investigate.
