Terms of service
The following definitions will be used in these Terms of Service:
Zakatify LLC allows Account Holders to manage charitable donations in conjunction with PayPal Giving Fund ("PPGF"). Once registered with Zakatify Services, each Account Holder has the ability to browse and review Content and initiate automatic or monthly donations to listed charities. Unless explicitly stated otherwise, any new features that augment or enhance Zakatify Services, including the release of new Zakatify LLC tools and resources, shall be subject to the TOS. In order to use Zakatify Services, you must obtain access to an Internet-connected device and pay any service fees associated with such access. In addition, you must provide all equipment necessary to make such connection to the Internet, including computers, smartphones, or other access devices. You also understand and agree that the service may include certain communications from Zakatify LLC, such as service announcements, administrative messages and Zakatify Services newsletters, and that these communications are considered part of Zakatify Services membership. You agree not to access Zakatify Services by any means other than through the interfaces that are provided by Zakatify LLC for use in accessing Zakatify Services.
Your donation will be made to PPGF, a 501(c)(3) charity, and is subject to PPGF’s policies and terms of service for donors. Donations are subject to Zakatify's platform fee and to payment processing fees, and PPGF makes grants to benefiting charities net of those fees. The charity you recommend will typically receive the funds within 15-45 days of your original donation. In the unlikely event that PPGF cannot deliver donations to the charity you recommend, it will whenever possible seek a new recommendation from you. To ensure your donation remains Zakat-eligible, you should recommend another charity from Zakatify’s directory. If no recommendation is given, PayPal Giving Fund will reassign the funds to another charity, which has been vetted by PPGF.
In order to use Zakatify Services, you must have a valid Zakatify Services account. This means that you must provide Zakatify LLC with your name, a valid email address and other information ("Registration Data"). As an Account Holder, you will choose a password and account designation for your membership during the Service's registration process. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of the password and account, and are fully responsible for all activities that occur under your password or account. You agree to (a) immediately notify Zakatify LLC in writing of any unauthorized use of your password or account or any other breach of security, and (b) ensure that you exit from your account at the end of each session. Zakatify LLC cannot and will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to comply with this Section. In consideration of use of the Service, you agree to: (a) provide true, accurate, current and complete information about yourself as prompted by the Service's registration form, and (b) maintain and promptly update the Registration Data to keep it true, accurate, current and complete. If you provide any information that is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, or Zakatify LLC has reasonable grounds to suspect that such information is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, Zakatify LLC has the right to suspend or terminate your account and refuse any and all current or future use of the Service (or any portion thereof).
Cancellation and termination
If you cancel one or more Zakatify Services, your cancellation will take effect immediately. After cancellation, you will no longer have access to your account and all information contained therein may be deleted by Zakatify LLC. Zakatify LLC accepts no liability for such deleted information or content.
You agree that Zakatify LLC, in its sole discretion, may terminate your password, and/or account, and remove and discard any Content within Zakatify Services (including, but not limited to reviews created by you), for any reason, including and without limitation, the lack of use, or if Zakatify LLC believes that you have violated or acted inconsistently with the letter or spirit of the TOS. Any contracts, verbal or written or assumed, in conjunction with your deleted content (as applicable) and all its parts, at Zakatify LLC's discretion, will be terminated as well. Zakatify LLC may also in its sole discretion and at any time, discontinue providing Zakatify Services, or any part thereof, with or without notice. You agree that any termination of your access to Zakatify Services under any provision of this TOS may be effected without prior notice, and acknowledge and agree that Zakatify LLC may immediately deactivate or delete your account, as applicable, and all related information and files.
