Milaap.org ("Milaap," "we," "us," "our") provides its services (described below) to you through its website located at www.milaap.org (the "Site") and through its mobile applications and related services (collectively, such services, including any new features and applications, and the Site, the "Services"), subject to the following Terms of Service (as amended from time to time, the "Terms of Service"). We reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to change or modify portions of these Terms of Service at any time. If we do this, we will post the changes on this page and will indicate at the top of this page the date these terms were last revised. We will also notify you, either through the Services user interface, in an email notification or through other reasonable means, and unless otherwise stated, Milaap may communicate with you officially by any reasonable means now known or later developed. These currently include email, regular mail, and postings on the Site. Your continued use of the Services after the date any such changes become effective constitutes your acceptance of the new Terms of Service.
Finally, we encourage you, particularly if you intend to donate to a Milaap campaign or raise funds for a need, to review the Pricing section of these Terms of Service.
Services Description: The Services are offered as a platform (the "Platform") to users of the Services, which may include Campaign Organizers (interchangeably used with "Champions"), Beneficiaries, Recipients and Donors (each defined herein) and other users of the Services (which may include users who interact with the Site or Services). Among other features, the Services are designed to allow a user (a "Campaign Organizer") to post a fundraising campaign ("Campaign") to the Platform to accept monetary donations ("Donations") from those users wishing to contribute funds to the Campaign ("Donors"). A Campaign Organizer may be both, a Beneficiary and a Recipient, for any Campaign.
A “Beneficiary” includes an individual, a group of individuals, or any entity that benefits from Donations through a Campaign, and a Recipient. A “Recipient” includes an individual or entity that is authorised by the Beneficiary through written means to receive Donations on behalf of the Beneficiary. Although there are no fees to set up a Campaign, a percentage of each Donation will be charged as fees for our Services and those of our third party payment processors. Please see our Pricing section for details.
Charitable Giving: Campaigns, unless otherwise clearly stated by Milaap, are not charities to which you can make tax-deductible charitable contributions. However, in addition to the Services described above, Milaap permits Donors to contribute to certain charitable organizations ("Charities") through the Platform. You understand and acknowledge that Milaap is not a charity, and Milaap does not solicit charitable donations for itself or for any third-party charitable institution. You, as a Campaign Organizer, represent and warrant that, you are not a charity as defined in Section 80G of the Income Tax Act 1961, as amended (the "Code"). If you or your charity would like to register to be listed as a charitable organization on the Platform, you can do so at the time of setting up a Campaign. As used in this Agreement, the term "Campaign" does not refer to a Charity, and you acknowledge that contributions to Campaigns are not deductible for Indian Income Tax deduction, unless your registered charity is authorized to issue tax-exempt certificates under Section 80G.
The Services are a Platform; We are not a Broker, Financial Institution, Creditor or Charitable Institution: The Services are an administrative platform only. Milaap facilitates the Donation transaction between Champions and Donors, but is not a party to any agreement between a Champion and a Donor, or between any user and a Charity. Milaap is not a broker, agent, financial institution, creditor or insurer for any user. Milaap has no control over the conduct of, or any information provided by a Champion or a Charity, and Milaap hereby disclaims all liability in this regard. Anyone is free to report issues related to a Campaign on Milaap, and Milaap will take necessary action to the best of its abilities.
Milaap does not guarantee that a Campaign or a Charity will obtain a certain amount of Donations or any Donations at all. We do not personally endorse any Campaign, Champion, or Charity, and we make no guarantee, explicit or implied, that any information provided through the Services by a user is accurate. We expressly disclaim any liability or responsibility for the success of any Campaign, or the outcome of any fundraising purpose. You, as a Donor, must make the final determination as to the value and appropriateness of contributing to any Campaign, Champion, or Charity. You can write to us for any clarification, and we shall make our best effort to share the information that we have.
While we try our best to do so, we cannot and do not verify 100% of the information that Champions supply. We try our best to see that Donations are used in accordance with the stated fundraising purpose; we also collect documents related to Campaigns before disbursing Donations to the Champion for Campaigns that raise more than INR 50,000, or in other cases that Milaap may determine, at its sole discretion. However, please understand that we can not guarantee that 100% of the time Donations will be used in accordance with any fundraising purpose prescribed by a Champion or Charity. We assume no responsibility to verify whether the Donations are used in accordance with any applicable laws, and such responsibility rests solely with the Champion or Charity, as applicable. While we have no legal obligation to verify that the use of any funds raised is in accordance with applicable law and these Terms of Service, we try to do the verifications for many campaigns and more important we take possible fraudulent activity and the misuse of funds raised very seriously. If you have reason to believe that a Champion or Charity is not raising or using the funds for their stated purpose, please use the "Report" button on the Campaign to alert our team of this potential issue and we will investigate to the best of our abilities.
We encourage you, particularly if you intend to donate to a Milaap campaign or raise funds for a need, to review the Frequently Asked Questions section of the website to understand the steps taken by Milaap to foster greater trust and transparency.
You, as a Champion, represent, warrant, and covenant that (i) all information you provide in connection with a Campaign is accurate, complete, and not otherwise designed to mislead, defraud or deceive any user; and (ii) all Donations contributed to your Campaign will be used solely as described in the materials that you post; and (iii) you will comply with all relevant local, state, and Union laws applicable to you when you solicit funds, particularly but not limited to laws relating to your marketing and solicitation for your project. We reserve the right to provide information relating to your Campaign with donors and beneficiaries of your Campaign, and with law enforcement or to assist in any investigation.

The following are examples of the kind of content and/or use that is illegal or prohibited by Milaap. However, this list is not exhaustive and Milaap reserves the right to investigate anyone by engaging public and private organizations, including, but not limited to collection agents, private investigators, and local, state, federal and international agencies, and take appropriate action against anyone who, in Milaap's sole discretion, violates any of the terms or spirit of these Terms of Service (or the principles described in our preamble hereto), including, without limitation, removing the offending content, suspending or terminating the account of such violators, stopping payments to any such Campaign, freezing donated funds when Milaap reasonably believes it to be required by applicable law, and reporting you to the law enforcement authorities or otherwise taking appropriate legal action. Without limiting the foregoing, you agree to not use the Services to:
Donations: In order to contribute to a Campaign or to a Charity, You, as a Donor, represent and warrant to Milaap that all information, including information related to credit cards other payment instrument, you provide to Milaap is true. You are authorized to use the payment instrument. You agree that a certain minimum Donation amount may apply, and subject to the refund policy, that all Donation payments are final and cannot be refunded. Donors may have the option to contribute recurring period Donations, and in electing to contribute on a recurring basis, you, as a Donor, (i) agree to promptly update your account information with any changes (for example, a change in your billing address or credit card expiration date) that may occur and to pay the Donation amount that you specify, and (ii) hereby authorize Milaap to bill your payment instrument in advance on a periodic basis until you terminate such periodic payments through the Platform.
Milaap shall transfer payments, net of its costs, charges and fees into the bank account details designated by the Campaign organizer during the fund withdrawal process. Once Milaap has made transfers into the designated bank account, Milaap shall be discharged of any/all liability towards the Campaign organizer, Champion, Beneficiary, Recipient and contributors/donors and the Campaigner, Champion, Beneficiary, Recipient, donors, and contributors shall not be eligible for any claims and/or refunds thereof.
Loans: You and other persons (each, a "Lender" and, collectively, "Lenders") with borrowers and social enterprises in various countries in need of affordable capital (each, a "Borrower" and, collectively, "Borrowers"). In most instances, these Borrowers are considered "high risk" by traditional lenders for a variety of factors, including, but not limited to, the Borrowers' lack of credit history, the use of the loan proceeds for entrepreneurial endeavors including investment in a "start up" business, and the geographic location including the risk of financial instability and foreign exchange rate fluctuations.
You may participate as a Lender by creating an online account on the Website registered to your email address. All transactions between Lenders and Borrowers or Field Partners must be conducted through a Milaap account. The amount of funds you have available in your Milaap account that you have deposited and is freely available to be lent is referred to as your "Milaap Credit." If you make a Loan (as defined in the next sentence) through the Website, you are instructing Milaap to apply your Milaap Credit to fund the specific Loan you have designated on the Website. All Milaap Credit in your Milaap account must be lent and repaid to your account before you can withdraw it. While making a loan you agree that you understand and accept the process used by Milaap to manage loans, and detailed in Loan process.
By lending on Milaap, you hereby acknowledge and agree that (a) Milaap makes no representation, warranty, covenant or guarantee that any funds you lend to a Borrower via the Website will be repaid in whole or in part, (b) loans and other similar transactions made via the Website (each, a "Loan") are unsecured and bear a high risk of non-repayment and (c) given your financial situation and objectives, you will lend only those amounts on the Website that you can afford to lose. Loans made via the Milaap are philanthropic in nature with no offered rate of return, subject to foreign exchange fluctuations and, as such, are not intended as, and cannot be considered as, an investment in a financial instrument or security. Loans made via Milaap are not cancellable or refundable by you.
Fees: Milaap does not charge a Champion any upfront fees for initiating a Campaign. Milaap retains a flat percentage of each Donation contributed to a Campaign and all charitable contributions made to a Charity (collectively, "Milaap Platform Fees"). An additional payment processing fee is also deducted from each Donation and is payable directly to our third party payment processors (the "Payment Processing Fee," and together with the Milaap Fees, the "Fees"). In some cases, where the Campaign Organizer has requested, through a written consent, for additional outreach from Milaap through social media to raise funds, Milaap shall retain an additional percentage of each Donation contributed to a Campaign from the start of outreach effort towards the costs incurred for such efforts (collectively, “Additional Outreach costs”) Donors acknowledge that by contributing a Donation to a Campaign, the Donor is agreeing to any and all applicable terms and conditions set forth by a third party payment processor, in addition to these Terms of Service.
Fees are deducted directly from each Donation, and will not be reflected in the amount which a Champion can withdraw from the Campaign or which is directed to a Charity. We reserve the right to change Milaap's pricing from time to time. If Milaap does change its Fees, Milaap will provide notice of the change on the Site or in email to you, at Milaap's option, at least 30 days before the change is to take effect. Your continued use of the Services after the Fee change becomes effective constitutes your acceptance of the updated Fees.
Account Holds: From time to time, Milaap may place a hold on a Campaign account (a "Hold") restricting Withdrawals (defined herein) by a Champion. Some of the reasons that we may place a Hold on a Campaign Account include the following: (i) if we have reason to believe (in our sole discretion) that information provided by a Champion is false, misleading, or fraudulent, or that funds are being used in a prohibited manner, (ii) if the funds available should be provided directly to a person other than the Beneficiary (such as a legal beneficiary or person entitled by law to act on behalf of a Beneficiary), (iii) if we have reason to believe that a Campaign or Champion has violated these Terms of Service, (iv) if we think we need additional documentation to have reasonable assurance on utilization of Donations for the purpose stated in the Campaign, or (iv) if required in order to comply with a court order, subpoena, writ, injunction, or as otherwise required under applicable laws and regulations. If you have questions about a Hold we may have placed on your Campaign account, or need information about how to resolve the Hold, please contact us at email@example.com.
Withdrawing Donations from a Campaign: Subject to approvals from Milaap, you, as a Champion (or, as applicable, the beneficiary designated by the Campaign), may withdraw Donations to your Campaign at any time up to the full amount of all Donations credited to your Campaign, less Fees and any previously withdrawn amounts ("Withdrawals") and subject to any Holds that we may place on your Campaign account. A Champion may withdraw Donations by electronic wire transfer to the designated bank account or by receipt of a paper check in certain cases. While Milaap strives to make Withdrawals available to you promptly, you acknowledge and agree Withdrawals may not be available to you for use immediately, and Milaap does not guarantee that Withdrawals will be available to you within any specific time frame, and Milaap expressly disclaims any and all responsibility for any delay or inability to access and use Withdrawals at any specified time, and any consequences arising from such delay or inability. You, as a Champion, are responsible for ensuring that the information you provide to the Campaign in order to process a Withdrawal, including the bank account information, statutory information including but not limited to valid government issued IDs of the Beneficiary and the Recipient for the purpose of KYC, is accurate and up to date.
We comply with the Anti-Money Laundering (AML) guidelines established by the Reserve Bank of India, vide it's circular RPCD.RRB.RCB.AML.BC.No.02/07.51.018/2014-15 on 1 July, 2014 and updated from time to time. The guidelines include, but is not limited to, the following salient conditions:

Only the Campaign Owner shall be permitted to collect Campaign funds.
Campaign Owners and Recipients are responsible for collecting and remitting any taxes on Contributions, and any taxes due in connection with Campaign Owners and/or Recipients.
Milaap may attempt to verify the identity and other information provided to us by Campaign Owners, and we may delay, withhold, reverse or refund any Contributions or other amounts without notice or liability in the event we are unable to verify any such information to our satisfaction. Campaign Owner eligibility is subject to Milaap’s review of the fulfillment status of prior crowdfunding obligations.
Taxing authorities may classify funds raised on the Services as taxable income to the Campaign Owner and any Recipient who will receive funds directly from the applicable Campaign. Milaap will ask for the personal account number / tax identification number (PAN) of Campaign Owners and any beneficiaries and/or Recipients so that we may report taxable income to the relevant taxing authorities.
For contributors on milaap.org, only standard channels of payment - verified credit or debit cards, netbanking, bank transfers, cheque, prepaid instruments such as wallets, Unified Payment Interface or cash (upto limits allowed by the RBI) - will be allowed.

Recipients (campaign organisers, whether individuals or organizations) will comply with foreign exchange rules as explained by the Foreign Exchange Management Act of the RBI. Any failure to do so may result in cancellation of fundraiser, and refund of donations, to the cancelled fundraiser, to respective donors.
AML policies will be updated time to time at the sole discretion of Milaap.
Donations made through Milaap are final and cannot be refunded, except in accordance with Milaap’s Refund Policy. All Donation payments are final and cannot be refunded. However, Milaap will issue refunds for the following “exceptional” scenarios.

Dispute Resolution By Binding Arbitration: PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY AS IT AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS
Most user concerns can be resolved quickly and to the user's satisfaction by emailing Milaap support at email@example.com In the unlikely event that our user support team is unable to resolve a complaint you may have (or if Milaap has not been able to resolve a dispute it has with you after attempting to do so informally), we each agree to resolve those disputes through binding arbitration, mediation, or small claims court instead of in courts of general jurisdiction. Arbitration, which is often cheaper, faster and less formal than a lawsuit in court, uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award. Also, in any arbitration under this arbitration provision in which you seek less than Rs. 500,000 in damages, Milaap will pay reasonable attorneys' fees should you prevail. Milaap will not seek attorneys' fees from you. However, if you initiate an arbitration in which you seek more than Rs. 500,000 in damages, the payment of attorneys' fees will be governed by the applicable rules (as defined below). Any arbitration under this Agreement will take place on an individual basis; class arbitrations and class actions are not permitted.
Milaap and you agree to arbitrate all disputes and claims between us. This agreement to arbitrate is intended to be broadly interpreted. It includes, but is not limited to:
References to "Milaap", "we", "you", and "us" include our respective subsidiaries, affiliates, agents, employees, predecessors in interest, successors, and assigns, as well as all authorized or unauthorized users or beneficiaries of services or devices under this or prior agreements between us. Notwithstanding the foregoing, either party may bring an individual action in small claims court. This arbitration agreement does not preclude you from bringing issues to the attention of federal, state or local agencies. Such agencies can, if the law allows, seek relief against us on your behalf. You agree that, by entering into this Terms of Service, you and Milaap are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action. This arbitration provision shall survive termination of this Terms of Service.
You agree that Milaap, in its sole discretion, may suspend or terminate your account (or any part thereof) or use of the Services and remove and discard any content within the Services, for any reason, including, without limitation, for lack of use or if Milaap believes that you have violated or acted inconsistently with the letter or spirit of these Terms of Service. Any suspected fraudulent, abusive or illegal activity that may be grounds for termination of your use of Services, may be referred to appropriate law enforcement authorities. Milaap may also in its sole discretion and at any time discontinue providing the Services, or any part thereof, with or without notice. You agree that any termination of your access to the Services under any provision of this Terms of Service may be effected without prior notice, and acknowledge and agree that Milaap may immediately deactivate or delete your account and all related information and files in your account and/or bar any further access to such files or the Services. Further, you agree that Milaap will not be liable to you or any third party for any termination of your access to the Services.
You agree that you are solely responsible for your interactions with any other user in connection with the Services and Milaap will have no liability or responsibility with respect thereto. Milaap reserves the right, but has no obligation, to become involved in any way with disputes between you and any other user of the Services.
These Terms of Service constitute the entire agreement between you and Milaap and govern your use of the Services, superseding any prior agreements between you and Milaap with respect to the Services. You also may be subject to additional terms and conditions that may apply when you use affiliate or third party services, third party content or third party software. These Terms of Service will be governed by the laws of India without regard to its conflict of law provisions. With respect to any disputes or claims not subject to arbitration, as set forth above, you and Milaap agree to submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts located within Bangalore, Karnataka. The failure of Milaap to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms of Service will not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any provision of these Terms of Service is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, the parties nevertheless agree that the court should endeavor to give effect to the parties’ intentions as reflected in the provision, and the other provisions of these Terms of Service remain in full force and effect. You agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of or related to use of the Services or these Terms of Service must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose or be forever barred. A printed version of this agreement and of any notice given in electronic form will be admissible in judicial or administrative proceedings based upon or relating to this agreement to the same extent and subject to the same conditions as other business documents and records originally generated and maintained in printed form. You may not assign these Terms of Service without the prior written consent of Milaap, but Milaap may assign or transfer these Terms of Service, in whole or in part, without restriction. The section titles in these Terms of Service are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect. Notices to you may be made via either email or regular mail.
