We will from time to time post projects for fundraising. If you’re interested in and you would like to support any project, you may make a donation, to which the following rules

1. In some cases we’ll reserve the charge on your card. We and our payment partners may authorize or reserve a charge on your credit card (or whatever payment method you use) for any amount up to the full donation amount at any time between submitting your payment details by you and the deadline of the project you’re funding.

2. We do not offer refunds. Once you’ve made a donation, it’s final. Please think twice before, as we don’t refund any donation already made.

3. Some pledges can’t be collected, which might reduce the amount of actual funding at the end.  Because some payments can’t be collected — for instance, when a donor’s credit card expires before funding ends, and they don’t provide updated information — we can’t guarantee that the amount of funding you see will be exactly equal to the full amount actually donated.

4. All the data provided while making a donation/payment is secure and may in no case be provided to any third party.
