give&score brings NONPROFITS and young skilled VOLUNTEERS together to help each other. NONPROFITS get important work done while saving time and resources and VOLUNTEERS gain real work experience and credentials which help them succeed in a competitive job market.
Our Terms & Conditions
We try to keep it simple and user-friendly, so here are the most important rules of our T&C in normal English:
1. We work really hard to provide a consistent and reliable service to the public. It we fail to do so, we don't want to get sued for it.
2. We make mistakes, but our liability is limited by what we got paid. So if something goes wrong in a project that cost you $20, we will refund you $20.
3. If a project fails or is significantly delayed by the volunteer's fault, the nonprofit organization is entitled to a full refund of what was paid. Refunds are credited back as project credits to your account or to PayPal during the period where these refunds are permitted by PayPal (currently within 60 days of purchasing a project credit).
4. We're are not liable for what a volunteer does or does not deliver. The relationship is entirely between non-profit and volunteer, we're just providing the tools to connect with each other and better work together.
5. You have to pay attention to copyright issues. For volunteers this means: don't use stuff you copied from the web in documents or artwork etc. that you submit to nonprofits. For non-profits this means: please check all of the materials you receive, and particularly pictures, for their copyright status (there's a specific FAQ on that to help avoid nasty surprises).
6. If we link to external third-party content, we're not responsible for its availability or quality.
7. If you don't play by the rules (e.g. try to post for-profit projects or sign up using a fake ID or try to fake ratings with that buddy you know in that nonprofit) and we find out, we will kick you out of the system. The same can happen if you try to take advantage of us or others on our site.
8. While we encourage honesty, we absolutely discourage inappropriate language and content.
9. All of the content created in projects on our system belongs to the nonprofit posting the project unless other previous copyrights or intellectual property rights exist.
10. Rating the other party is mandatory and not doing so constitutes reason for us to suspend your profile.
And, here's the more formal version:
