If you become aware of or suspect that your user credentials have been compromised, lost or stolen, you must inform us immediately so that we may issue you replacement credentials.
The Services, including the features, content and look and feel of your Band Site, may change from time to time in our discretion. Your continued use of the Services, including the Band Site, after such a change constitutes your acceptance to such modifications. If you have already chosen a particular look and feel of your Band Site (a “skin”) when such changes occur, we may allow you to continue using that skin after we discontinue its use by other bands, but we may also terminate your use in our discretion and at our option (in which case you will have to select a new skin to continue making the Band Site available to your invitees).
We will provide the Services to you throughout the Term (as defined below) of this Agreement only.
You are responsible for Your Content, including for uploading it to your Band Site. You are also responsible for ensuring that Your Content is legally obtained. “Your Content” means all data and information which You upload to the Band Site, including: (i) contact information of your Band Site invitees and all associated information about such persons; (ii) your files, such as your music, recordings, and videos; (iii) information about you and your products or services; (iv) your calendar information as maintained on the Band Site; (v) your newsletters prepared on and sent through the use of the Band Site; (vi) your e-mails to and from invitees to your Band Site which are sent or received on the Band Site; (vii) information about your products sold using the Band Site e-commerce operations (but please see section “E-commerce on Bandzoogle” below for additional information on e-commerce functionality); (viii) your trademarks and service marks, and (ix) information about your activities on social media linked to or visible from the Band Site.
We do not control or actively monitor Your Content. However we reserve the right at all times to remove or refuse to distribute any of Your Content which breaches our policies, and to terminate your rights to use the Services (and reuse your user-name for another Entity or Band). We also reserve the right to access, read, preserve, and disclose any information as we reasonably believe is necessary to (i) satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process or governmental request, (ii) enforce these Terms of Service, including investigation of potential violations hereof, (iii) detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues, (iv) respond to support requests, or (v) protect the rights, property or safety of users and the public.

The Band Site also may allow you to select from several website analytics services, should you wish to use them. If you use any of these third party tools or services, you hereby represent that such activities are undertaken at your own risk. These third party tools and services are provided as a convenience only, and it is your responsibility to understand when, where or how their use is appropriate and legal.
You have the ability to post legal terms and conditions, and to post privacy notices or policies, on your Band Site. It would be advisable for you to engage legal counsel to advise you on whether you should post such notices or terms, and what information and disclosures such terms or policies/notices should contain.
Compliance with Laws
We agree to comply with all applicable United States and Canadian laws in our performance of the Services. We also agree to comply with the requirements of the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (“PCI Requirements”), as applicable to us, which is designed to protect credit card information from unauthorized disclosure, theft or loss. For the protection of your Band Site invitees making purchases on the Band Site, we will contractually obligate all payment processors we have control over to process credit card transactions on your behalf to also be compliant with PCI Requirements.
Band Site Updates and Upgrades
From time to time, we may develop updates or implement enhancements or other changes to your Band Site. We will also from time to time modify the back-end software that runs your Band Site. You specifically grant us permission to do this whenever we push an update, upgrade, bug fix or patch to all customers similarly situated to you. Occasionally, this will require the Band Site to be unavailable to you or your visitors for a brief period of time. We apologize for the inconvenience this may cause, but unfortunately, we must perform these regular maintenance activities to maintain your Band Site’s performance over time.
Bandzoogle will provide one (1) free domain name with the new purchase of a paid plan. The free domain name applies only to the following TLD's: .com, .net, .org, .biz., if you sign up for a Service that includes this offering.
The domain name is yours to keep, except as otherwise set forth herein. We register the domain in Bandzoogle's name, but will unlock and transfer it to your name upon cancellation of an active paid account, or upon request anytime during the term of your active paid account membership. Please note, however, that we do not have the ability to transfer a domain to you during the initial 90 days after we register it. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if a domain is in Bandzoogle’s name at the time that your account becomes inactive for any reason (including but not limited to non-payment or violation of these Terms of Service), any domain name in your account will remain registered to Bandzoogle. In this case, Bandzoogle has the right to retain the registration of the domain for its own purposes, sell or transfer the domain to a third party, or delete the domain and allow any new registrant to register it.
Except as otherwise stated herein, we will continue to renew your Band Site domain name throughout the Term of this Agreement, provided you continue to timely pay all fees when due hereunder and are not in breach of these Terms of Service.
If Bandzoogle sends you the unlock code for a domain, it is your responsibility to transfer the domain to a new registrar, if you so choose. We will not renew domains after the end of the Term of this Agreement, so please keep that in mind when submitting your cancellation request or otherwise terminating this Agreement.
You may purchase additional domains, subject to availability, for $14.95 per year (which fee is subject to change from time to time in our discretion). Additional domains are not renewed automatically.
Under no circumstances will Bandzoogle be liable for any damages relating to domains, including but not limited to failure or errors in renewing, transfer, or registration of domains, even if such failure is ours.
E-commerce on Bandzoogle
The Services include the option for you to sell goods and services directly to invitees to your Band Site. Bandzoogle provides the platform to offer sales, but all transactions occur at our third party transaction processors, PayPal or Stripe. All transactions are subject to the terms and conditions of Paypal or Stripe, as applicable, and you must have a PayPal or Stripe account independent of your account with us for the Band Site in order to accept such payments. Further, Bandzoogle is not responsible for, and does not have access to, any aspect of transactions that happen on our platform aside from the items that were included in a specified transaction.
By using any e-commerce components of the Services, you agree to not sell products that, in our discretion:
Infringe or potentially infringe on the copyrights of another person;

Provisions of this Agreement dealing with confidentiality, representations or warranties, indemnities, limits on liability and any provisions set forth in the “Miscellaneous” Section below shall survive termination of this Agreement.
Each party (the “disclosing party”) may disclose to the other party (the “receiving party”), Confidential Information during the course of performance under this Agreement. “Confidential Information” means any data, files, content, copy, materials and information which is not public and which is disclosed by the disclosing party or on such person’s behalf, to the receiving party or an affiliate or service provider of such party, either directly or indirectly, in writing (including electronically) or orally, and which a reasonable person should understand, based on the content or means of disclosure, to be confidential or proprietary. Your Content shall be considered your Confidential Information. Our Website content, Website look and feel, the Band Site skins and their look and feel, and all graphic and other elements of our Website and the Band Sites (excluding any which you uploaded to the Band Site), our business methods, pricing models and methodologies, and business processes, shall be considered our Confidential Information.
The receiving party will: (i) hold the disclosing party’s Confidential Information in confidence and use reasonable care to protect the same; (ii) restrict disclosure of the other party’s Confidential Information to those of its affiliates, employees, service providers or agents with a need to know such information and who are under a duty of confidentiality respecting the protection of such Confidential Information; and (iii) use the other party’s Confidential Information only for the purposes for which it was disclosed, or as otherwise permitted herein or pursuant to instructions from the disclosing party.
The above restrictions will not apply to Confidential Information to the extent it (i) is, or through no fault of the recipient has become, generally available to the public; (ii) was lawfully received by the receiving party from a third party without such restrictions and if such third party was not subject to a duty of confidentiality when it received the information; (iii) was known to the receiving party prior to receipt from the disclosing party, if it received such information not subject to a duty of confidentiality; or (iv) was independently developed by the receiving party without breach of this Agreement or access to, reference or use of the Confidential Information of the other party.
The receiving party may disclose Confidential Information to the extent the disclosure is required by law, regulation, or judicial order, provided that the receiving party will provide to the disclosing party prompt notice, where permitted by law, of such order and will assist the disclosing party in its efforts to contest or limit any required disclosure.
It is your responsivity to comply with your obligations under applicable data protection laws when collecting, handling, uploading and processing personal data of your Band Site visitors and invitees. In addition, as part of the Services hereunder, we will ensure that we and our service providers: (i) use commercially reasonable data security procedures and controls designed to protect Your Content from unauthorized use, loss, disclosure, theft or compromise.
If there is any theft, loss, loss of control over, access or discovery by or disclosure to a third party, or other event that results in an unauthorized third party obtaining access to, viewing, copying, transferring, transmitting, displaying, preventing authorized access to, or coming to control of any of Your Content (each such event, a “Breach”), and if such Breach occurs as a result of any action or inaction of ours or our service providers or from our systems, devices or networks, then we will, at our own expense (a) give you notice of such Breach as quickly as is commercially feasible for us to do so after becoming aware of such a Breach; (b) give you reasonably available information pertaining to such Breach, and where and how it occurred; (c) give you available information pertaining to Your Content that was lost, stolen, accessed, discovered, rendered inaccessible or disclosed; (d) perform forensic investigations and audits as reasonably required to identify the root cause and reasons for the Breach; (e) reasonably mitigate the effects of the Breach as promptly as is commercially feasible; and (f) take all corrective actions necessary to prevent the Breach from re-occurring.

WE DO NOT WARRANT THAT THE SERVICES SHALL BE UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR FREE.
EXCEPT AS SPECIFICALLY STATED IN THIS AGREEMENT, THE SERVICES (INCLUDING YOUR BAND SITE), OUR CONTENT AND THE DOCUMENTATION ARE PROVIDED ON AN “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE” BASIS.
Each party hereby agrees to defend, indemnify and hold harmless the other party from and against any action, claim, proceeding, law suit, demand, loss or expenses (including reasonable attorney’s fees and legal costs and expenses) arising or resulting from such party’s breach of its specific warranties herein.
We will defend, indemnify and hold you harmless from and against any action, claim, proceeding, law suit, demand, loss or expense (including reasonable attorney’s fees and legal costs and expenses) brought by a third party to the extent that the action is based upon a claim that our Services, Our Content or the Documentation (collectively, “Offerings”), or any portion thereof, infringes or misappropriates any U.S. or Canadian intellectual property rights of such third party. In addition, if the Offerings, or any part thereof, becomes, or in our reasonable opinion is likely to become, the subject of an infringement or misappropriation claim, we may, at our sole option and expense, either (i) procure for you the right to continue using the affected item, or (ii) modify the affected item so that it becomes non-infringing/not misappropriating. If none of the above options are reasonably available, we may terminate this Agreement or remove the feature or portion of the Offerings which is subject to the claim or possible claim.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, we shall have no liability for infringement or misappropriation under this section, if the alleged infringement or misappropriation arises directly from (i) the integration of the Offerings with other equipment or software that were not provided by us or reasonably foreseeable to be used in combination with or to be integrated with the Offerings, and if the infringement would not have occurred absent such integration; (ii) modifications made to the Offerings without our prior written consent; or (iii) use of the Offerings other than as contemplated hereunder, if such action would have been avoided but for such use, modification or combination.
You agree to defend, indemnify and hold harmless us, our affiliates and service providers, and all officers, directors, members or employees of any of the foregoing, from and against any action, claim, proceeding, law suit, demand, loss or expenses (including reasonable attorney’s fees and legal costs and expenses) arising or resulting from (i) your use of ads and other additional features available on your Band Site; (ii) your activities in marketing or promotion of your goods or services to invitees on your Band Site, including with respect to all communications you initiate and receive through the use of your Band Site; and/or (iii) any challenge or claim relating to one of your domain names.
The party seeking indemnity pursuant to this section will promptly notify the party indemnifying in writing of the claim, and will grant the indemnifying party sole control of the selection of counsel, defense, and settlement of the claim. The indemnifying party will pursue defense or prosecution of all claims in a diligent manner. The indemnified party hereunder agrees to provide the indemnifying party with reasonable assistance, information required for the defense and settlement of the claim; provided, however, that the indemnifying party may not settle a claim in a manner that is adverse to the indemnified party or if such settlement requires acknowledging liability or wrongdoing by the indemnified party without such indemnified party’s prior written consent.

Independent Contractors. The parties are independent contractors, and this Agreement creates no relationship of principal and agent, partner, joint venture, employer-employee or other similar arrangement.

To generate a Commission Fee for You, each Referred User must be an active, Qualified User of Fiverr and must be up-to-date in all payments at the time the Commission Fees are processed, and not have been subject to a refund, credit, cancellation, suspension or chargeback (these purchases shall be deducted from the Commission Fee as further detailed in Section 4.2.1 below).

4.1.6 Each Referred User must remain in compliance with our Terms and Service, and all applicable policies and guidelines of Fiverr that are applicable at the time the Commission Fees are processed.
4.1.7 Commission Fees may not be paid for the Qualified Purchase if the Referred User received a refund or credit from the Affiliate.
4.1.8 Fiverr reserves the right to withhold initial Commission Fees for Affiliates who are new to the Affiliate program, or who have commissions that are potentially fraudulent as determined by Fiverr in its sole discretion, in order to determine the legitimacy and cancellation rates of Referred Users.
4.1.9 Fiverr reserves the right to suspend payment of Commission Fees at any time and indefinitely, if it suspects fraud or Fraudulent Traffic, improper activity or a potential breach of any of the terms in this Agreement by the Affiliate or a Referred User(s). Fiverr reserves the right to deduct from Affiliate's current and future Commission Fees any and all Commission Fees corresponding to any fraudulent, questionable, and canceled Fiverr purchases. Where no subsequent Commission Fee is due and owing, Fiverr will send Affiliate a bill for the balance of such Commission set off upon termination of the Affiliate Program or termination of the Referred User.
4.1.10 Fiverr, in its sole discretion, reserves the right to withhold indefinitely any Commission Fee, and/or to reverse, deny or reject any Commission Fee, and/or to deny or reject any Affiliate account, and/or terminate this Agreement immediately, for:

Commission Fees will be processed 30 days after the end of the month in which they accrued as set forth below, provided that Affiliate issues an invoice within 10 days from the end of that calendar month, otherwise the payment will be made on the following monthly payment cycle.
4.2.2 As of January 2020, Commissions may be paid in non-USD currencies as may be determined by Fiverr, in accordance with Fiverr's policy and subject to applicable law. Charges for wires or conversion fees may be deducted from the Commissions in accordance with Fiverr’s policy. Please note that Your Affiliate Commission balance is always derived from its USD value and, therefore, the foreign currency payment amount may change in accordance with the applicable exchange rates at the time of payment.
4.2.3 Commissions will accrue and only become payable once (i) you provide all relevant tax and address information pursuant to Section 6 below; and (ii) Commissions accrued to a minimum of $100 (the "Commission Threshold") based on the commission rates stated on Fiverr Tracking System. 4.3 Commission Plan
Hybrid Plan: Affiliates are also offered a “Hybrid Plan” which combines both one-time commissions for the first Qualified Purchase made by a Referred User, plus a certain rate of revenue share for all subsequent purchases (after discounts or promotions, and excluding Service Fees) made by such Referred User during the first year following their first Qualified Purchase. Please see the Commission Plan page for more information. The Hybrid Plan applies only to purchases of Fiverr Gigs (and do not apply to Learn from Fiverr). In order for the Affiliates to benefit from the Hybrid Plan, the Referred User must register to Fiverr through the Affiliate’s Hybrid Plan dedicated link (“Fiverr Hybrid”). Only Referred Users that registered to Fiverr through that link would entitle the Affiliates to hybrid commissions.
Fiverr Business Affiliate Commissions: With respect to Fiverr Business Accounts, Affiliates will be entitled to receive a certain rate of revenue share from all purchases (excluding Service Fees) made by a Referred User’s Business Account during the first year following the first Qualified Purchase of such Business Account. Affiliates may be offered additional one-time commissions once a Business account reaches a certain spend milestone. Please see the Commission Plan page for more information.
Fiverr reserves the right to change the Commission Plan at any time and/or agree on special commission rates with certain Affiliates individually and/or reduce future commission rates for individual Affiliates (subject to prior notice) based on poor performance or due to the Affiliate promoting their own Fiverr services.
Please see Section 7 regarding Referred Affiliates, which may entitle you to additional “Sub Affiliate” commissions.
4.3.1 Payment Forms/Types
Commission Fees shall be paid based on the current information in Your Affiliate profile. It is your responsibility to notify us promptly of any change in your address by updating Your profile information. Payment shall be made within 30 days of the end of the applicable calendar months for Commission due for such month.
Affiliate has access to Fiverr's real-time Affiliate Program statistics and activity and specifically agrees to file any tracking or commission disputes as well as any other disputes and discrepancies within 10 days after the end of the month in which the sale or event that is disputed occurred. Disputes filed after more than 10 days of the date on which the Qualified Purchase occurred will not be accepted by Fiverr and Affiliate forfeits forever any rights to a potential claim.

7. Being A Campaign Organizer: Campaign Creation
Congratulations on starting your first Bonfire campaign! You help bring communities together worldwide by creating custom apparel for your supporters.
After Account Creation, you will have the ability to bring your vision to life by creating your Campaign. When creating a Campaign, you will be provided with a “base cost” from us for each product. With this information, you will set a sale price for each item. After your Campaign has closed a batch successfully, you will earn the difference between the base price and your sale price. For more information on how to get started, please check out this helpful article from our Help Center.
You represent that you own or all trademark rights, copyrights, rights of publicity and other intellectual property rights necessary to create and conduct a Campaign. You agree to provide us with evidence of this upon request. Your failure to do so may result in cancellation of your account and/or Campaign.
You agree that you will indemnify, defend and hold harmless Bonfire, its subsidiaries and all of their direct and indirect officers, directors, employees, agents, successors and assigns from any and all third party claims, demands, actions or threat of action (whether in law, equity or in an alternative proceeding), losses, liabilities, damages (including taxes), and all related costs and expenses, including reasonable legal fees and disbursements and costs of investigation, litigation, settlement, judgment, interest and penalties, and threatened losses due to, arising from or relating to your use of trademarks, copyrights, rights of publicity or other intellectual property in your Campaign that infringe any third party intellectual property rights.
Bonfire retains all ownership rights in any designs created by our designers and may not be used by you, other than in connection with your campaign on this Website, without our consent.
Fraud will be regarded as a serious matter and appropriate action, including, but not limited to, withholding payouts and/or account termination, or any other action within our right if fraudulent activity is detected.
You agree that all information you provide in connection with your Campaign is accurate and is not likely to deceive reasonable donors; and that all donations to your Campaign will be used solely as described in any promotion of your campaign.
You agree to not:
- falsely claim a connection to an intended recipient or charitable organization;
- fail to report accurate tax information to us or to the IRS;
- deceive others in order to get money from individuals believing they are making donations to charitable organizations or causes;
- publish deceiving statements on a Campaign page;
- upload content that infringes on the intellectual property of another person, business or organization.
We reserve the right to provide information relating to your Campaign to donors, beneficiaries of your Campaign or law enforcement in order to establish transparency and accountability.
In addition, in our sole discretion, we may choose to redirect all or a portion of the payout to the intended beneficiary or charitable organization aligned with the general purpose of the Campaign on your behalf. We may for any reason, in our sole discretion, place a hold on your account if fraudulent activity is detected.
By creating a Campaign, you agree to fully cooperate with any request we make for evidence we deem necessary to verify your compliance with these Terms.
Payouts for Successful Campaigns
To receive payment for your Campaign, you will be asked to provide a PayPal account email address. If you are requesting the Payout to be sent to a business or charitable organization and do not have the ability to send the funds to their PayPal account, you can contact email@example.com or your Bonfire representative to learn about alternate Payout options. We may require that you provide a Form W-9 to us prior to releasing funds.
You agree that you will verify the contact information you have provided to Bonfire for payments to ensure that payments from Bonfire are able to reach you or your intended beneficiary. Bonfire is not responsible for misdirected payments based on inaccurate information provided by you.
You acknowledge and consent that we may, at any time, for any reason, place a hold on a Campaign account, restricting payouts to a campaign organizer.
If you have questions about a hold that we have placed on your payout, please refer to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You are responsible for any taxes you owe based on the payments (“Payouts”) you receive from us. You must also follow our rules about content and conduct.
You are solely and fully responsible for payment of any income taxes applicable to the amount you earn through using our service. You are responsible for reporting any taxes. We collect tax identification information and report this to tax authorities as legally required.
We will provide a copy of IRS form 1099 no later than January 31st each calendar year for beneficiaries who received more than $600 in total payouts during the previous calendar year as paid by check, ACH, or wire transfer. Beneficiaries who are registered non-profits or corporations do not receive 1099s.
Tax reporting documentation for payouts made through third-party payment processors, such as PayPal, will be provided by the third party payment processor in accordance with all tax laws and regulations.

Bonfire makes every effort to transmit funds due to each Campaign organizer. In cases where the Campaign organizer fails to submit sufficient account information (e.g. PayPal account details, tax information if applicable, current mailing address, correct email address, etc.), Bonfire will make a good faith effort to contact the Campaign organizer and/or beneficiary in order to render payment in accordance with Bonfire’s processes.
If we are unable to contact the Campaign organizer and/or beneficiary and retrieve sufficient payment information after a period of six (6) months from the Campaign’s end date, we may then deem the funds unpayable, disperse the funds to a charitable organization of Bonfire’s choosing, and apply such funds to the reimbursement of Bonfire’s expenses.
