Fundraising Information for Creators and Sponsors

Your interactions may include, but are not limited to, delivery of goods and services, and any other terms, conditions, warranties or representations associated with listings on the Site.

ARU does not exercise control over the timings or performance of Projects in any way; does not warrant that Sponsors’ pledges will be used for any particular purpose; and is not responsible for any dissatisfaction regarding Creators’ use of Sponsors’ pledges, including any misuse of Sponsors’ pledges.

ARU is not responsible for any damage or loss incurred as a result of any such dealings in relation to the Projects or otherwise. All dealings are solely between Creators and Sponsors as the case may be.

In the case of any disputes between Creators and Sponsors, it is important that steps are made by each party to resolve any conflict. However, if either or both parties require ARU to mediate or support with any concerns, please email giving@anglia.ac.uk.

ARU is under no obligation to become involved in disputes between Sponsors and Creators, or between users of the Site and any third party. In the event of a dispute, you agree not to pursue ARU, its officers, employees, agents, Sponsorcraft Ltd or successors in relation to any claims arising out of or related to such disputes. You agree that ARU, its officers, employees, agents, Sponsorcraft Ltd and successors are exempt from and not subject to such claims.

Creators are solely responsible for fulfilling obligations both implied and stated in any Project they create. ARU reserves the right to remove a Project from the Site and cancel, [or refund any completed cancelled projects] all associated Sponsors' pledges at any time for any reason in its absolute discretion without liability.

For projects that reach their targets, but cannot be fulfilled or completed after donations have been paid then ARU requires that all fundraised money is returned to the Sponsors and any match-funding returned to the ARU Foundation. Refunds will be made via Stripe, to the original payment card and will be administered by ARU.

If Creators and Sponsors communicate separately about initiating refunds at their own discretion , they should make a member of the Development Team aware by emailing giving@anglia.ac.uk. If this occurs then Creators are responsible for returning all agreed monies.

Neither ARU nor Sponsorcraft Ltd is responsible for issuing refunds for funds that have been collected by Creators. However ARU can issue refunds UP TO 5 working days after a project has completed and finished fundraising. You must explicitly contact the Development Office on: giving@anglia.ac.uk or on 01223 695773 if you have this request.

To receive their rewards, Sponsors provide their details to Creators, so that they can administer or deliver the promised rewards. It is important that if a Sponsor does not wish for their information to be passed on to a Creator, they should contact the ARU Development Team at: giving@anglia.ac.uk to make other arrangements for the delivery of their rewards.

ARU reserves the right to question, or block any payments made by any Sponsor at any time at their own discretion and are not obliged to provide any additional reasoning or information behind this decision.

Creators will be required to submit regular reports to the ARU Development Office during the course of their Project. Failure to do so will cause the Development Office to require the repayment of money raised to Sponsors.

Once a Project has completed a Creator shall submit a full account of how the money raised by ARU Crowdfunding has been spent, within two months after the initial fund transfer (from the ARU Foundation) or will provide periodical updates, agreed with The ARU Development Office, whilst a project is in progress.

If a suitable and timely account of the project is not received, The ARU Development Office will require the creator to repay the funds raised to the Sponsors, and to return any money received from ARU Foundation as match–funding.

Payments and Fees

All funds are collected for Creators via Stripe.

The Stripe Service (debit / credit card payments) is a payment service which allows Creators to accept and process credit card, debit card and other types of card payments from their Sponsors. By registering with Stripe, the Creator accepts Stripe’s terms and conditions which can be found at www.stripe.com/terms.

Stripe apply a fee to the funds raised by successful Projects. This fee is dependent on the size of donations and may change over time. If your Project does not reach its funding target no fees are charged by Stripe. Please visit Stripe’s Fees page for more information on their costs.

Neither ARU nor Sponsorcraft Ltd is responsible for the performance or fairness of Stripe, and neither ARU nor Sponsorcraft Ltd is responsible for any Stripe fees.

Given the occasional failures of some credit cards, neither ARU nor Sponsorcraft Ltd can guarantee the full receipt of the funds raised.

ARU will transfer to Creators all sponsorship monies pledged and paid by Sponsors within 30 working days (unless stated otherwise in a direct communication) of receiving money into the ARU bank account. Please be aware that payments are made from Stripe to ARU every 7 days, so you are likely to receive your money up to 35 working days after the end of your project. Please adapt your timeframes and deadlines accordingly.

Sponsorcraft does not charge processing fees for projects on hubbub.net.

The administration fees charged by Stripe will be deducted from the fundraising total raised by a Creator, so Creators should ensure that they set targets with these charges in mind. A breakdown of fees charged by Stripe is set out on their website.
