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.

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 ipledgefor may determine, at its sole discretion.

Most user concerns can be resolved quickly and to the user's satisfaction by emailing ipledgefor support at care@ipledgefor.org In the unlikely event that our user support team is unable to resolve a complaint you may have (or if ipledgefor 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 oftencheaper, 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. As a User, you agree you are solely responsible for your interactions on the Website. ipledgefor will have no liability or responsibility with respect to disputes arising between you and other Users. Any dispute arising from the use of the Website or from the Services, or with inclusion of ipledgefor as a party (formal or otherwise), shall first be resolved amicably and in a reasonable time, by writing to us at care@ipledgefor.org If the dispute cannot be settled amicably, such dispute shall be resolved by referring it to arbitration, in accordance with the Indian Arbitration & Conciliation Act, 1996, or in accordance with arbitration as per the applicable law. The seat of arbitration shall be in Mumbai and the language to be used in all proceedings shall be English.
ipledgefor 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: claims arising out of or relating to any aspect of the relationship between us, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation or any other legal theory; claims that arose before this or any prior agreement (including, but not limited to, claims relating to advertising); claims that are currently the subject of purported class action litigation in which you are not a member of a certified class; and claims that may arise after the termination of this Terms of Service. References to "ipledgefor", "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 orbeneficiaries 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 ipledgefor are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participatein a class action.
