Terms and Conditions
Crowdscrum purposefully seeks to describe clear terms for trading, because the service that our crowdfunding portal offers is transparent and unambiguous to interested parties on its activities and role. However, for peace of mind please find the common terms below.
Unlike traditional, ‘all or nothing’ websites, Crowdscrum believes that a lot of hard work and perseverance goes into every campaign, and so whatever is realised on completion is reinvested back to the Beneficiary Organisation as stated on the Application Form submitted, normal within 14 days of closure, with the only deduction a maximum 10 percent that represent the costs of Crowdcrum’s support and remuneration by way of contribution to professional fees, and includes all fees we incur for processing payments by PayPal.
Forecasts and recommendations in any Crowdscrum campaign are made in good faith and on the basis of the information before the Company at the time. Results must depend among other things on effective co-operation of the Applicant and the Beneficiary Organisation’s staff. In consequence, no statement in any communications (be they written or implied) is a representation, undertaking, warranty or contractual condition. The Company shall not be liable to the Applicant and/or Beneficiary Organisation for any losses which were not reasonably foreseeable on acceptance of an Application or for any indirect or consequential losses including loss of revenue, expected profits and claims by third parties.
Crowdscrum retains all copyright and editorial rights associated with materials and creation of this campaign, less any photographs or images (excluding video) that is provided by the Applicant and/or Beneficiary Organisation.
