Projects: Fund-Raising and Commerce

The SITE is a venue for raising contributed money to fund entrepreneurial endeavors (“PROJECT”). DEMCROWD ORGANIZATION allows certain users ("FUNDING CAMPAIGN") to list PROJECTs and raise funds from other users ("Funders"). The SITE is not offering, nor is it creating a platform for the exchange of, any security - including but not limited to, any note; stock; treasury stock; security future; bond; debenture; evidence of indebtedness; certificate of interest or participation in any profit-sharing agreement, collateral-trust certificate, preorganization certificate or subscription; transferable share; investment contract; voting- trust certificate; certificate of deposit for a security; fractional undivided interest in oil, gas, or other mineral rights; any put, call, straddle, option, or privilege on any security, certificate of deposit, or group or index of securities (including any interest therein or based on the value thereof); or any put, call, straddle, option, or privilege entered into on a national securities exchange relating to foreign currency, or, in general, any interest or instrument commonly known as a “securities,” or any certificate of interest or participation in, temporary or interim certificate for, receipt for, guarantee of, or warrant or right to subscribe to or purchase, any of the foregoing. No FUNDING CAMPAIGN will raise funds for a PROJECT in any manner that would involve the offer of a sale of a “security” as defined by the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or any State securities laws.

You understand that making a contribution to a PROJECT is charitable in nature and does not give you any rights in or to that PROJECT or any profits ultimately derived from or related thereto, including without limitation any ownership, control, or distribution rights, or any rights commonly afforded to the owner of a security and that the FUNDING CAMPAIGN shall be free to solicit other funding for the PROJECT, enter into contracts for the PROJECT, allocate rights in or to the PROJECT, and otherwise direct the PROJECT at their sole discretion. You further understand that nothing in this Agreement or otherwise limits DEMCROWD ORGANIZATION's right to enter into agreements or business relationships relating to PROJECTs. Any contribution made by you is irrevocable and you shall have no right to a return of your contribution in whole or in part.

Certain contributions made on the SITE may be tax deductible if given to a tax-exempt organization as defined by section 501(c) of the Internal Revenue SERVICE (the “IRS”) code. You understand that, if you make a contribution to a PROJECT that is posted by a tax exempt entity as defined by section 501(c) of the IRS code, DEMCROWD ORGANIZATION is in no way involved and is not responsible for facilitation of any tax deduction or receipt thereto. Any potential deduction must be dealt with between the tax-exempt organization and the Funder directly, outside of DEMCROWD ORGANIZATION.

DEMCROWD ORGANIZATION shall not be liable for your interactions with any organizations and/or individuals found on or through the SERVICE. This includes, but is not limited to, delivery of goods and SERVICEs, and any other terms, conditions, warranties or representations associated with listings on DEMCROWD ORGANIZATION SERVICE.

DEMCROWD ORGANIZATION reserves the right to cancel a PROJECT listing and attempt, in good faith, to refund all associated members' payments at any time for any reason. DEMCROWD ORGANIZATION reserves the right to remove a PROJECT listing from public listings for any reason.

DEMCROWD ORGANIZATION makes no guarantees regarding the performance or fairness of WePay.com.
