Passport Company is under no obligation to become involved in disputes between Campaign Initiators and Contributors, or Users and any third party. In addition, Passport Company is under no obligation to become involved in disputes regarding the determination of the rightful Campaign Initiator, and will not be obligated to make any changes to Campaign Initiator accounts or transfer of ownership. In the event of any dispute, such as a Campaign Initiator's alleged failure to comply with the Terms or alleged misuse of the raised Contributions, we may provide the Campaign Initiator's contact information to the Contributor so that the two parties may resolve their dispute.

User Accounts
All information submitted in connection with a User account on the Services (each, a “User Account”) must be accurate and truthful. Users agree to notify Passport Company immediately if their User Account has been used without authorization or there has been any other breach of security of the User Account.

License to Users

Campaign Initiators
Campaign Initiators are legally bound to perform on any promise and/or commitment to Contributors. Campaign Initiators shall respond promptly and truthfully to all questions posed to them by Passport Company or any Contributor. If any Campaign Initiator is unable to fulfill any of its commitments to Contributors, the Campaign Initiator will work with the Contributors to reach a mutually satisfactory resolution, which may include refunding their Contributions. Campaign Initiators will comply with all applicable laws and regulations in the use of Contributions. Campaign Initiators are responsible for collecting and remitting any taxes on Contributions. Passport Company may attempt to verify the identity and other information provided to us by Campaign Initiators, 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. A Campaign Initiator must request from Passport Company the disbursement of the raised Contributions within 30 days from the conclusion of a Campaign. Campaign Initiator eligibility is subject to Passport Company’s approval, in its sole and absolute discretion. Passport Company reserves the right to prohibit or remove a Campaign for any reason.

Contributors are solely responsible for asking questions and investigating Campaign Initiators and Campaigns to the extent they feel is necessary before making a Contribution. All Contributions are made voluntarily and at the sole discretion and risk of the Contributor. Passport Company does not guarantee that Contributions will be used as promised or that the Campaign will achieve its goals. Passport Company does not endorse, guarantee, make representations, or provide warranties for or about the quality, safety, morality or legality of any Campaign or Contribution, or the truth or accuracy of User Content posted on the Services. Contributors are solely responsible for determining how to treat their Contributions for tax purposes.

Service Fees
Setting up an account on the Services is free. We do not charge our Service fees to Contributors. Unless otherwise expressly indicated on the Services, we do charge our Service fees to Campaign Initiators as a portion of the Contributions they raise (the "Service Fees"). By using the Services herein, Campaign Initiators agree to pay to Passport Company Service Fees in the amount of 4.5% of the gross raised Contributions, subject to change. Changes to Service Fees are effective after we post notice of the changes on the Services. Updated Service Fees are applied to Campaigns launched after the notice is posted.

Contributors may request a refund from Passport Company within 10 days of the contribution, but before the end of a Campaign. Contributions are eligible for a refund by Passport Company unless (a) the contribution funds have already been transferred to the Campaign Initiator, or (b) Passport Company determines that there has been an abuse of these Terms of Use. Passport Company reserves the right to terminate User Accounts and remove Campaigns for any abuse of this refund policy. For Campaigns that have ended, or in situations where the contribution funds have been transferred to the Campaign Initiator, Contributors should contact the Campaign Initiator directly regarding refunds.

Tax authorities may classify funds raised on the Services as taxable income to the Campaign Initiator and any beneficiary who will receive funds directly from the applicable Campaign. If required by the relevant taxing authorities, Passport Company may ask for the tax identification number of Campaign Initiators and any beneficiaries so that we may report taxable income to the relevant taxing authorities. Passport Company will provide Campaign Initiators with a tax document if required by the relevant taxing authorities.

User Content
While using the Services, Users may post photos, videos, text, graphics, logos artwork and other audio or visual materials (collectively, "User Content"). Users grant Passport Company a perpetual, non-exclusive, royalty-free, transferable, sub-licensable, worldwide license to use, publicly display, publicly perform, store, reproduce, modify, create derivative works, and distribute User Content of any User on or in connection with the Services and our related marketing and promotional activities.

Passport Company may assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter for which Users have agreed to indemnify Passport Company and each User agrees to assist and cooperate with Passport Company in the defense or settlement of any such matters.

No Warranty

Waiver and Release
For those Users located in a jurisdiction that requires a specific statement regarding waiver and release, each such User hereby waives any provision in law, regulation or code that has the effect or intent to narrow down the full extent of a general release.

Limitation of Liability
For jurisdictions that do not allow Passport Company to limit its liability: Notwithstanding any provision of the Terms, for Users in a jurisdiction that has provisions specific to waiver or liability that conflict with the foregoing, then Passport Company's liability is limited to the smallest extent possible by law. Specifically, in those jurisdictions not allowed, Passport Company does not disclaim liability for: (a) death or personal injury caused by its negligence or that of any of its officers, employees or agents; or (b) fraudulent misrepresentation or intentional misconduct; or (c) any liability which it is not lawful to exclude either now or in the future.

The Terms, and any rights and licenses granted hereunder, may not be transferred or assigned by any User, but may be assigned by Passport Company without restriction or consent.

Termination and Survival
Termination may result in the forfeiture and destruction of all information associated with any User Account. Users may terminate their User Account by following the instructions on the Services, but Passport Company may retain the User Account information after termination in accordance with regulatory, accounting, and legal compliance procedures. All provisions of the Terms that by their nature should survive termination shall survive termination, including, without limitation, ownership provisions, warranty disclaimers, indemnity and limitations of liability.

Governing Law
Users agree that: (a) the Services shall be deemed solely based in Ontario, Canada (the principal place of business and head office of Passport Company); and (b) the Services shall be deemed a passive one that does not give rise to personal jurisdiction over Passport Company, either specific or general, in jurisdictions other than Ontario. This Agreement shall be governed by the laws of the Province of Ontario and Canada therein, without respect to its conflict of laws principles.

Passport Company and User agree that any and all disputes or claims shall be resolved exclusively through final and binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that a User at its election may assert claims in small claims court, if the User’s claims otherwise qualify for adjudication in that court. Passport Company and User manifest their assent to arbitrate by providing and using the Services. Arbitrable claims are those that Passport Company asserts against User, and that User asserts against Passport Company, any related or affiliated entity, and the officers, directors, agents or employees of any of them. To the maximum extent permitted by law, the Parties agree to arbitrate claims on an individual basis only, and they waive any right to bring, participate in, or recover under, a class, collective, consolidated or representative action. Arbitration shall be in accordance with the rules of the Arbitration Act, 1991 (Ontario) in effect on the date of commencement of such arbitration, by three arbitrators (individually, an “Arbitrator” and collectively, the “Arbitrators”). Each of the parties hereto shall select an Arbitrator and shall notify the other party of the person so selected in writing by registered mail. The first party to so be notified shall thereafter have fifteen (15) days to appoint the second Arbitrator, failing which the first party to have named an Arbitrator shall have the right to appoint the second Arbitrator as well. The Arbitrators so selected shall within twenty (20) days of their nomination name a third Arbitrator. The arbitration shall take place in the City of Toronto unless otherwise agreed by the parties. The Arbitrators shall have the right to grant legal and equitable relief including the right to grant permanent and interim injunctive relief. The Arbitrators shall not amend or otherwise alter the terms and conditions herein. The Arbitrators shall render a decision within sixty (60) days after the date on which the last Arbitrator was appointed. Any Claim arising out of or relating to the terms of this Agreement shall be made in writing and shall be served upon the party against whom the Claim is made not more than twelve (12) months from the date of the alleged breach and any such Claim not made within such twelve (12) month period shall be deemed to have been abandoned and shall be absolutely barred. The award of the Arbitrators shall be final and binding on the parties and no appeal shall lie to any court. The parties hereby agree to carry out any decision or order of the Arbitrators in good faith. If, notwithstanding this arbitration agreement, a claim for any reason proceeds in court rather than in arbitration, the dispute shall be exclusively brought and heard in a court of competent jurisdiction located in the Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

Campaign Initiators and other Users should be aware that many jurisdictions impose charitable fund solicitation laws to guide direct or indirect fund solicitation activities in those jurisdictions. While provisions vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction, the requirements typically include mandatory registration and reporting. Passport Company merely provides a technology platform to allow Campaign Initiators to connect with Contributors. Users who access or use the Services do so at their own volition and are entirely responsible for compliance with applicable laws.
Passport Company makes no representations, warranties or other assertions as to the potential tax deductible status of any Contribution by a Contributor to a charitable cause or to a Campaign whose purported recipient claims to be a charity or other tax-advantaged organization. The listing of an organization via the Services does not necessarily mean that the organization has been deemed (or remains currently deemed) a charitable or tax-advantaged organization by the relevant tax authorities.

English Language
In the event of a conflict between these the English language version of the Terms and any foreign language translation versions thereof, the English language version of the Terms shall govern and control. All disputes, claims and causes of action (and related proceedings) will be communicated in English.

Cooperation with Authorities and Police Enforcement
We will cooperate with law enforcement authorities as required by law. We will cooperate with law enforcement agencies in any investigation of alleged illegal activity regarding the use of the Services when requested.

Notification Procedures
Users agree Passport Company may provide notifications to such User via email, written or hard copy notice, or through conspicuous posting of such notice on our website. Users may opt out of certain means of notification or to receive certain notifications.

Unsolicited Idea Submissions
We are always pleased to hear from our Users, and welcome their comments or suggestions. However, products, services, and features developed by Passport Company or its Users might be similar or even identical to a submission received by Passport Company or its Users. When we refer to a "submission" in this paragraph, we mean: any submission, comment, or suggestion (including, but not limited to, ideas, products, or services and suggested changes) made either on the Passport Company platform or to Passport Company about an existing product or service on, or a feature of, or a proposed addition to, the Passport Company platform. With regard to User submissions:
(1) all such submissions are non-confidential and non-proprietary and will be treated as non-confidential and non-proprietary;
(2) Passport Company and its Users will have no express or implied obligation or liability of any kind concerning the submissions, including, for example, any use or disclosure of the submissions; and,
(3) Passport Company and its Users are entitled to unrestricted use or disclosure of the submissions for any purpose whatsoever, all without compensation to the User that submitted the submission.

Entire Agreement/Severability
These Terms are the entire agreement between each User and Passport Company regarding its subject matter. If any provision of these Terms are deemed invalid by a court of competent jurisdiction, the invalidity of such provision shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions of this Agreement, which shall remain in full force and effect. Passport Company's failure to assert any right or provision under this Agreement shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.

Changes to Terms
Passport Company may alter the Terms at any time, so please review them frequently. If a material change is made, Passport Company may notify Users in the Services, by email, by means of a notice on the Services, or other places we think appropriate. A "material change" will be determined at Passport Company's sole discretion, in good faith, and using common sense and reasonable judgment.
