(a) Participation requirements and registration procedure

To use the WEB as a funding platform, the USER promoting a PROJECT (hereinafter USER PROMOTER), shall prove previously to have been accepted to the specific program or educational course subject to the PROJECT.

In addition, the USER PROMOTER has to complete the following form (https://goo.gl/forms/XxS2oPzednb9oRA93) filling in the necessary data to be able to propose a financing campaign aimed at receiving contributions for the development of the PROJECT (hereinafter referred to as CAMPAIGN). Each of the proposed rewards are to be specified, i.e. what skills and knowledge will be applied, as well as the investment of time in each of them based on the contributions received.

Once the fulfillment of the specified participation requirements is verified, the OWNER OF THE WEB will proceed to review the PROJECT, mainly regarding the profile of the USER PROMOTER, the content and interest of the PROJECT and the amount of contributions requested. Based on the above, the OWNER OF THE WEB might submit a counterproposal or suggestions that may eventually improve the chances of success of a CAMPAIGN.

(b) Publication of the PROJECT and start of the CAMPAIGN

After verifying compliance with the requirements and approval of the PROJECT, the OWNER OF THE WEB will publish the PROJECT on the WEB so that any interested person can make contributions to it.

Each CAMPAIGN in any case must have a limited duration, which will be determined by the USER PROMOTER with the advice and supervision of the OWNER OF THE WEB. The duration of the CAMPAIGN shall be counted from the date of publication of the PROJECT. In certain cases, depending on the characteristics of the PROJECT, and once the initial term of the CAMPAIGN has expired, the OWNER OF THE WEB might establish, in agreement with the PROMOTER USER, an extension of the CAMPAIGN.

The CAMPAIGNS will consist of all types of presentation and promotion materials for the promotion of the PROJECT (including but not limited to texts, images, videos, presentations in any format or content in social networks) created and contributed by the PROMOTER USER, indicating the objectives, motivations and personal/professional expectations for participating in the PROJECT.

(c) PROJECT Financing

The USER PROMOTER will be responsible for getting USERS to collaborate in the PROJECT (hereinafter the USER COLLABORATOR) and obtain the necessary financing for the PROJECT. However, anyone who visits the WEB will have the possibility to participate and contribute to the published PROJECTS.

The contributions received in a CAMPAIGN must necessarily be used exclusively to cover the direct costs of the PROJECT, excluding expenses indirectly related to it, such as transportation, materials, etc., that the USER PROMOTER must pay on his or her own account.

The expenses related to the PROJECT will not be paid by the OWNER OF THE WEB to the USER PROMOTER, but directly to the third parties involved in a specific PROJECT (schools, training centers, cultural institutions, etc.) as appropriate, according to the breakdown provided by the USER PROMOTER in each case.

(d) Conditions for payment of contributions and remuneration

Publishing and promoting a PROJECT on the WEB is for free. However, the OWNER OF THE WEB shall be entitled to receive a total remuneration equivalent to 5% + VAT of the net value of each CAMPAIGN that has obtained the necessary contributions to develop the corresponding PROJECT (hereinafter the REMUNERATION).

The contributions will be paid using the Stripe payment system, which meets the strictest safety standards in the industry and charges a commission for each payment made of 1.4% + 0.25 € for European cards and 2.9% + €0.25 for non-European cards, which will be assumed by OWNER OF THE WEB. However, the expenses incurred by payment using the Stripe platform will not be charged at the time of the contribution, but only in the event of successful ending of a CAMPAIGN, to be understood as when USER PROMOTER obtains the necessary financing for the development of the PROJECT.

Consequently, of the contributions made, 5% + VAT + (1.4% + 0.25 € for European cards and 2.9% + €0.25 for non-European cards) will be deducted corresponding to the REMUNERATION, from which the expenses derived from the payment using the Stripe platform, which shall depend on the type of card used, as detailed in the previous paragraph, will be deducted, so that these expenses will always be subtracted from the REMUNERATION.

The payment system Stripe ensures the effectiveness of transfers and the confidentiality of the bank details of the donors. It is convenient that the USERS are familiar with Stripe’s Terms of Use and its Privacy Policy: https://stripe.com/ en/privacy.

If the USER PROMOTER does not obtain the necessary financing for the development of the PROJECT, the contributions collected hitherto shall be returned to the USERS COLLABORATORS within 15 business days, and the OWNER OF THE WEB shall not have the right to obtain the REMUNERATION, and consequently no charge shall be made.

If the USER PROMOTER does obtain the necessary financing for the development of the PROJECT, the contributions collected, once the REMUNERATION has been deducted, shall be transferred by the OWNER OF THE WEB directly to the third parties involved in the project (schools, training centers, cultural institutions, etc.), as applicable, according to the breakdown provided by the USER PROMOTER, within 7 business days.

The USERS PROMOTERS who have achieved the necessary contributions and are carrying out the PROJECT shall be obliged, over the duration of the PROJECT, to make daily updates, through the WEB and SOCIAL MEDIA channels, so that the USERS COLLABORATORS can follow the development and progress of the PROJECT.

The USERS PROMOTERS will have between one (1) and three (3) months to carry out all of their rewards, a term that will be counted from the date on which the PROJECT has ended.

(e) Right of Withdrawal

The USER PROMOTER who decides to leave the PROJECT, for any reason, may cancel the CAMPAIGN without having to justify his or her decision. In such cases, no amount will be charged to the USER PROMOTER.

In the event that the USER PROMOTER decides not to carry out the PROJECT, once it has been initiated, he or she shall be obliged to return the totality of the contributions that the USERS COLLABORATORS may have made in connection with the PROJECT, within a term not exceeding then (10) business days from the date of cancellation/abandonment of the PROJECT, without prejudice to the fact that the contributions have been paid directly to the third parties involved in the PROJECT and not to the USER PROMOTER. For the purposes of this clause, the USERS acknowledge and expressly accept that under no circumstances shall the OWNER OF THE WEB be liable towards the USERS COLLABORATORS with respect to the obligations of the USER PROMOTER.
