Visitor & Campaigner Conduct
Salon Fundraiser takes respect for one another very seriously. With that said, no profanity, disrespect, abuse, hatred, violence, ill will, etc...will be tolerated. Salon Fundraiser will take the appropriate steps to resolve as the company sees fit. Should a dispute arise between Campaigner and Contributors, Salon Fundraiser is not responsible for resolving the dispute, however, Campaigner contact information will be provided to encourage the resolution of the dispute.
Campaigners are allowed to offer REWARDS to Contributors. Commitments made in Campaigns including, but not limited to, delivering all REWARDS offered with Campaign must be honored. Campaigners will respond promptly and truthfully to all questions posed by Salon Fundraiser. If Campaigner is unable to fulfill any of the commitments (including delivering any REWARDS), Campaigner will work with the Contributors to reach a mutually satisfactory resolution, which may include refunding their Contributions. Campaigners will comply with all applicable laws and regulations in use of Contributions and delivery of REWARDS. Campaigners are responsible for collecting and remitting any taxes on Contributions, and any taxes due in connection with the REWARDS. Salon Fundraiser may attempt to verify Campaigner identity and other information provided to us, and we may delay, withhold, reverse or refund any Contributions or other amounts without notice or liability in the event we are unable to verify any information to our satisfaction. Campaigns are settled according to the Campaign Duration, minus applicable fees, unless you request that Salon Fundraiser hold the funds longer. Depending on whether the Campaign is "LIMITED" or "NEVER ENDING" will dictate the disbursement of funds to Campaigner. Campaigns submitted will be reviewed for basic criteria: Barber or Beauty Industry related, minimum 30 day campaign, terms & conditions compliance.
Definition of Campaign Durations
A LIMITED Campaign is when a Campaigner chooses a deadline for the timeframe they will be accepting donations from Contributors. If the Campaign Goal is met or exceeded, the disbursement of funds to Campaigner process will be initiated. If the Campaign Goal is not met, the Campaigner will have the opportunity to either cancel the Campaign in which case the donations will be refunded back to the Contributors or they may choose to extend the Campaign to a new date or switch the Campaign to a Never Ending deadline. If funds are disbursed for a Campaign Goal that was met, Salon Fundraiser may check in on the Campaigner from time to time to monitor whether funds are being spent in accordance with the description of the original solicitation of the Campaign Goal.
A NEVER ENDING Campaign is when a Campaigner chooses to accept donations from Contributors until they meet their Campaign Goal. If the Campaign Goal is met or exceeded, the disbursement of funds to Campaigner process will be initiated. If the Campaign Goal is not met, the Campaigner may choose to Cancel their Campaign in which case the donations will be refunded back to the Contributors. A Never Ending Campaign may be eligible for earning interest on any donations accumulated in their Campaign, and that interest would be credited directly to the Campaign Goal as earned. Funds donated to a Never Ending Campaign will be kept in a special account where interest may accrue on funds raised. The interest rate is subject to the rates, terms and conditions set by Salon Fundraiser and in no way considered earned until actual payouts are physically earned. If funds are disbursed for a Campaign Goal that was met, Salon Fundraiser may check in on the Campaigner from time to time to monitor whether funds are being spent in accordance with the description of the original solicitation of the Campaign Goal. If the Campaign gets cancelled, the earned interest will be divided among the Campaigner and Salon Fundraiser to compensate for Salon Fundraiser expenses in facilitating the Campaign over the time it existed.
Definition of Campaign Strategies
An ALL or NOTHING Campaign is where a Campaigner specifies the amount they want to raise in a specific timeframe. If the Campaigner reaches their goal, they will get to keep the funds they raised minus any applicable fees. If they do not raise the funding goal they set, the funds will be sent back to the Contributors who made the original donation. Prior to refunding the donations, Salon Fundraiser will reach out to the Campaigner to discuss alternative options regarding the funds that may assist them in their Campaign.
A KEEP IT ALL Campaign is where a Campaigner will keep all the funds raised once the Campaign Goal has been reached in a Never Ending Campaign. If the Campaign Goal is not reached and a Campaigner decides to cancel or stop their Campaign, then the All or Nothing terms will regulate the Campaign funds and the donations will be refunded back to the Contributors after reviewing the Campaign status with the Campaigner. In a Never Ending Campaign with the Keep It All option, the Campaigner will have the ability to continue to promote their Campaign until the Campaign Goal is actually reached in full. Once the Campaign Goal is reached or exceeded, the Campaign will be eligible to begin the disbursement process to the Campaigner. The Campaigner must reach their Campaign Goal to receive the funds raised in their Campaign. Because Contributors are donating to a cause and Salon Fundraiser takes responsibility for collecting the funds via www.SalonFundraiser.com, Salon Fundraiser may inquire on specifics regarding Campaigner’s Campaign Goals and usage for funds raised to deter any misuse or misspending of donations made by Contributors.
A VOTING Campaign is not used to earn donations to raise funds for a Campaign and should not be used for such purposes. If a use for the Vote Campaign type is found, a request to implement it must be sent to info@SalonFundraiser.com to be approved prior to developing the actual campaign.
Contributors are solely responsible for asking questions and investigating Campaigns to the extent is felt is necessary before making a Contribution. All Contributions are made voluntarily and at Contributor's sole discretion and risk. Salon Fundraiser doesn't guarantee that Contributions will be used as promised, that Campaigners will deliver REWARDS, or that the Campaign will achieve its goals. Salon Fundraiser does not endorse, guarantee, make representations, or provide warranties for or about the quality, safety, morality or legality of any Campaign, REWARD or Contribution, or the truth or accuracy of content posted on the Service. Contributor is solely responsible for determining how to treat each Contribution and receipt of any REWARDS for tax purposes. In the event Contributor is issued a refund on a Contribution because of our inability to disburse funds to a Campaign Owner, Contributor will no longer be entitled to delivery of any REWARDS associated with the contribution.
Setting up an account with Salon Fundraiser website is FREE. We also do not charge any fees to Contributors for their contributions. Fees for Salon Fundraiser services will be listed prior to sign up for each service, and certain fees regarding contributions made to Campaigners' will be deducted from contributions prior to funding Campaigners. For details on Fees, see the FAQs. Credit Card processing fees, which Salon Fundraiser does not control, are also deducted from contributions prior to funding Campaigners. Each Campaigner and Contributor are responsible for any applicable taxes associated with transactions. Contributions and Fees are all non-refundable. Contribution settlements will be made within 7-15 days (or on the next business day if the day falls on a weekend or holiday) once disbursement funding requirements are met. In any case a Refund is issued by Salon Fundraiser, that amount will not reflect in Campaign stats which means actual total contributions may be lower than what is displayed on the campaign page. Campaigners can get updated stats for more accurate settlement information by contacting Customer Service via the Contact Us form.
