By accepting this Agreement (including the Policies) you agree to be bound by it and also the User Agreements and posted terms and conditions on other websites operated by Funsidy and its related and affiliated companies, to the extent that you use those websites.
We may amend the terms and conditions of this Agreement from time to time. Amended terms will be posted on our Site. Except as stated in this Agreement, in a Policy, or as otherwise notified to you, all amended terms will automatically be effective immediately. Your continued use of the Service following the posting of any changes to the Terms and Conditions constitutes acceptance of those changes. If you do not agree with such changes to this Agreement (or any of our Policies), you must terminate your membership with Funsidy. If, after any such changes to this Agreement or any of our Policies you continue to be a member of our Site, you will be considered by us to have accepted the varied terms as part of the Agreement.
In these Terms, we refer to those raising funds as "Project Owners" and to their fund raising campaigns as "Projects." We refer to those raising funds on behalf of someone else or an organization as "Fundraisers." We have two types of Fundraisers, 1. Primary Fundraiser. 2. Project Fundraiser. A primary fundraiser creates a project from the onset and begins to raise funds for someone else or organization. A project fundraiser duplicates and modifies an existing project with the mission to raise funds for the original project through his own project. We refer to those contributing funds as "Donors" and to the funds they contribute as "Donations." Fundraisers and Donors are referred to collectively as Supporters. Project Owners, Fundraisers, Donors and other visitors to the Services are referred to collectively as "Users."
Funsidy is an online crowdfunding service and maintains the infrastructure that supports the user community that allow members who comply with Funsidy's policies to collaborate as a whole or individually to offer, and donate value or experiences within a fixed-price format. Funsidy allows registered individuals, groups and organisations ("Project Creators" "Fundraisers") to list projects and raise funds through offering items, value, experiences and offering services ("Rewards") to new and existing Funsidy members ("Project Supporters", "Donors"). Funsidy also allows users to work together as one community in pooling funds together to support various other projects based on merit vetted by users.
Funsidy is not directly involved in the transaction between Project Creators and Project Supporters. As a result, Funsidy has no control over the quality, safety, morality or legality of any aspect of the offerings and claims listed, the truth or accuracy of the listings, the ability of Project Creator to sell Rewards or the ability of Project Supporter to pay for Rewards. Funsidy cannot ensure that a Project Supporter or a Project Creator will actually complete a transaction. Consequently, Funsidy does not transfer legal ownership of Rewards or promises from the Project Supporter to the Project Creator. Users use the Services at their own risk.

Most projects also will qualify for extra funding from the Funsidy general fund (SidyFund), as long as they do not reach their funding goals and fall under all general funding guidelines, Read More About Funsidy General Fund.
Fundraisers on Funsidy, fundraising on behalf of someone else or an organisation get a percentage of funds raised paid to their accounts less service and processing fees. Project creators have the option to set their fundraiser fees or percentage as commission, project creators have the option to set this feature off for their projects. In a situation where this feature is left on and the project creator does not set a percentage for fundraisers, Funsidy sets the fee at 20%. This is subject to change. Fundraiser should refer to each project for fee guidance for fundraiser commission percentage.
