Terms and conditions of B1G1 Giving
(Registered Society in Singapore: T09SS0020H)
Last updated 31 March 2013
We - meaning you and B1G1 Giving - have a commitment to work together to make a difference through the application and power of B1G1 transaction-based giving and impact-based giving.
As a user of the B1G1 Giving Engine, you are entitled to make contributions to the Worthy Causes that are listed on the B1G1 website. These are carefully selected Worthy Causes that meet specific criteria set by B1G1 Giving. However, further enquiries from the public can be made directly to the relevant organisations and B1G1 Giving takes no liability for the information provided by the associating charity organisations. B1G1 Giving discloses complete information provided by the organisations and encourages all business and other users to take extra care and interest in selecting the Worthy Causes listed.
You may use B1G1 logos and branding under licence ONLY if you are a B1G1 Business Member or Partner. Contributing to the Worthy Causes listed on this site as a non-member or free user does not allow you or your company to use any of the marketing messages and intellectual property of B1G1 Giving. Further, any unauthorised use of the Intellectual property is expressly prohibited. The ownership of the B1G1 logos and marketing materials stays with B1G1 Giving under the licence of Buy1GIVE1 Pte Ltd (Singapore).
B1G1 Giving reserves the right to terminate a membership or cancel a user account should the member or user act in a way that is considered to be gross misconduct, fraud, gross misrepresentation or in cases where, in the judgment of B1G1 Giving, a user's action is likely to damage the reputation of B1G1 Giving.
This Agreement shall be construed as operating under the laws of the Republic of Singapore. Any dispute arising out of, or in connection with this Agreement, including any question regarding its existence, validity or termination, shall be referred to and finally resolved by arbitration in Singapore in accordance with the then-current Arbitration Rules of the Singapore International Arbitration Centre (“SIAC Rules”), which are deemed to be incorporated by reference in this Agreement. The Tribunal shall consist of a single arbitrator, and all proceedings shall be conducted in English.
Members and users of B1G1 Giving Engine carry no business liability whatsoever for any of B1G1 Giving's operations or services. B1G1 Members and users carry no responsibility whatsoever, legal or otherwise, for the society or for any of its assets, liabilities or obligations.
B1G1's activities are supported and funded by the membership subscription fees from B1G1 Members and Partners. B1G1 Pte Ltd supports the Registered Society B1G1 Giving and so a portion of Membership Fees goes to B1G1 Giving to make sure it's able to honour the commitment of 100 per cent of giving amounts going directly to your chosen cause. Non-B1G1 Members who use the B1G1 Giving Engine are required to cover the small administration fee (currently US $1) for each online giving transaction.
B1G1 Giving guarantees that 100 per cent of contributions go directly to the designated Worthy Cause Partner. B1G1 Giving transfers the contributions made by the users of B1G1 Giving Engine to the designated charity organisations in the following month (no later than 60 days from the date of the original transaction). However, if the accumulated total contribution amount for the organisation is less than $500 Singapore dollars, B1G1 Giving has the right to delay the execution of remittance until the SG $500 amount is reached, to minimise the bank charges incurred through the international transfer.
The user account of B1G1 Giving and contributions made through B1G1 Giving cannot be transferred to another company or organisation.
B1G1 Giving reserves the right to modify or supplement these Terms and Conditions at any time and without prior notice; however, in the event of a material change, we will post an alert on our homepage for 30 days to alert users to the change.
