Contributors and Contributing to Campaigns
BuzzzMedia may provide you the opportunity to make Contributions to any Campaign with an open Funding Request in any amount you choose. You may contribute to as many Campaigns as you like.

All Contributions are non-refundable by BuzzzMedia and are made in your sole discretion and at your sole risk based on your sole determination and evaluation of the Campaign. You are solely responsible for determining the tax deductibility of any Contribution.

Making a Contribution does not:

1. give you any rights or ownership in or to that Campaign or Contributions;
2. give you any distribution rights;
3. give you any rights to control or otherwise direct BuzzzMedia, the Service, Campaign or limit or otherwise affect Contributors or Contributions;
4. create any liability or responsibility on the part of BuzzzMedia to any Contributor or for any Contribution regardless of reason.

BuzzzMedia does not represent, warrant or guarantee the use of any Contributions or the outcome of any Campaign. It is up to you, as the Contributor, to ask such questions and undertake such due diligence as you deem necessary before you make a Contribution. BuzzzMedia may, in its sole discretion and judgment but is under no obligation to, refund Contributions

Fees & Taxes

All Contributions will be deposited in your Funding Account less our fee and statutory deductions, or such other payments already made to authorities. Different fees may apply to non-profit or discounted Campaigns. Fees may be adjusted at any time as BuzzzMedia decides in its sole judgment and discretion. Fees and statutory deductions are non-refundable.

Processing fees and other fees and charges may apply and/or be deducted from Contributions. Contributions are transferred based on the funding and payment you have selected unless being held to complete our verification process or being refunded as we deem appropriate in our sole discretion.

You are responsible to report properly, and timely pay, for all applicable taxes for all Contributions.

We may verify your identity, the use of the Contributions and the Campaign timeline before Contributions are deposited in your Campaign Account. You agree to participate in our verification process which may involve an interview and/or document review. Verification may result in a delay of Contributions being transferred or reversal and refund as BuzzzMedia determines in its sole discretion and judgment.

Discrepancies in or false or misleading statements or misrepresentations as to the Campaign or uses of Contributions may result in Contributions being refunded and/or accounts being suspended or reversed. If Contributions have been disbursed to you, you will ensure that all Contributions are refunded promptly to all Contributors without deduction for any fees paid or payable by you.
