TERMS AND CONDITIONS
Description of the Service; Registration and Restrictions
The Bridge2Act Platform allows users to donate to charities that support causes that are related to digital articles published by our media partners. You can visit our Platform and use/access some of its features and functionality without being required to register. If you wish to make a donation, you will need to register and setup an account with Bridge2Act. As part of the registration process, you will be asked to provide certain information about yourself, including name, address, phone number, and email. You will also be asked to create a user name and password. The username and password that you provide are your credentials ("Credentials"), and you will use these Credentials in order for us to authenticate you as a registered user of Bridge2Act. You can also register by using your Facebook or Google+ login credentials. If you opt to register via your Facebook or Google+ credentials, you will be required to provide Bridge2Act access to some of the information associated with your Facebook and Google+ accounts, which may include your name, email address, gender, locale, associated friends and other public profile information that may be associated with these services. Once authenticated, you will be able to make donations. You may not have more than one active set of Credentials. Additionally, you are prohibited from selling, trading, or otherwise transferring your Credentials to another party. You also agree to provide true, accurate, current and complete information about yourself as prompted during the registration process. If you provide any information that is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete (or becomes untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete), or Bridge2Act has reasonable grounds to suspect that such information is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, we reserve the right to suspend or terminate your account and refuse any and all current or future use of the Platform (or any portion thereof). You agree to accept responsibility for all activities that occur under your account. You agree to notify us immediately - by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org - of any unauthorized use of your account or any other breach of security.
The Bridge2Act Platform is intended solely for users who are 13 years of age or older, and any registration by, use of or access to the Platform by anyone under 13 is unauthorized. If you are under 13, you are only allowed to access this Platform with your parent or guardian permission and supervision. If you are 13 or older but under the age of 18, you should review these TOU with your parent or guardian to make sure that your parent or guardian understands them, agrees to be bound by them and you should only use the Platform with their permission and under their supervision. Additionally, you have to be 18 years of age or older to setup an account and to make a donation. If you are between 13 years to 18 years of age you must have your parent(s)’ or legal guardian(s)’ permission to setup an account and to make a donation(s). If you reside in a jurisdiction that would restrict the use of this Platform - or any of the functionalities or features offered via the Platform - because of age, or restricts the ability to enter into contracts such as this one due to age, you must abide by such age limits and you must not use the Platform if you are not permitted to do so by such local jurisdiction.
