Who Is Responsible For Completing A Project As Promised?

It’s the project creator’s responsibility to complete their project. SeeMeFunded is not involved in the development of the projects themselves. SeeMeFunded does not guarantee projects or investigate a creator’s ability to complete their project. SeeMeFunded , backers (you!) ultimately decide the validity and worthiness of a project by whether to fund it.

How Do Backers Know If A Project Will Follow Through?
  • Launching a SeeMeFunded  funding project is a very public act, and creators put their reputations at risk when they do.
  • Backers should look for creators who share a clear plan for how their project will be completed.
  • Creators are encouraged to share links and as much background information as possible so backers can make informed decisions about the projects they support.
  • Backers are encouraged and welcomed to request information from a creator before pledging via the “Contact me” button on the project page.
How Do I Start A Project?

SeeMeFunded vets each creator and project. Look for the creator bio section on the project page. Do they provide links for further verification? The web is an invaluable resource for learning more about a creator. At the end of the day, use your internet street smarts.

What Should Creators Do If They're Having Problems Completing Their Project?
  • If problems come up, creators are expected to post a project update (which is emailed to all backers) explaining the situation. Sharing the story, speed bumps and all, is crucial. Most backers support projects because they want to see something happen and they’d like to be a part of it. Creators who are honest and transparent will usually find backers to be understanding.
  • It’s not uncommon for things to take longer than expected. Sometimes the execution of the project proves more difficult than the creator had anticipated. If a creator is making a good faith effort to complete their project and is transparent about it, backers should do their best to be patient and understanding while demanding continued accountability from the creator.
  • If the problems are severe enough that the creator can’t fulfill their project, creators need to find a resolution. Steps could include offering refunds, detailing exactly how funds were used, and other actions to satisfy backers.
Is A Creator Legally Obligated To Fulfill The Promises Of Their Project?

Yes. We require creators to fulfill any rewards of their project or refund any backer whose reward they do not or cannot fulfill. We crafted these terms to create a legal requirement for creators to follow through on their projects, and to give backers a recourse if they don’t. We hope that backers will consider using this provision only in cases where they feel that a creator has not made a good faith effort to complete the project and fulfill.

Can I Get A Refund If A Project Is Unable To Fulfill It's Goal?

No. We don’t issue refunds as transactions are between backers and creators directly.  Creators receive all funds (less fees) soon after their campaign ends. Creators have the ability to refund backers through Paypal Payments (for US projects) and STRIPE (for non-US projects).

Additional information

Is SeeMeFundRazr safe for children and students?

SeeMeFunded is COPPA-compliant so safe for schools and after-school programs, including those under 13 (who require parental permission). We request parental permission for any users under 13 and all fundraisers require a bank account before being publicly visible.

I’m raising money for a nonprofit. Do my donors receive tax forms?

We do not send out official letters on your behalf. All donors receive receipts that could be used to inform them when they file taxes and as a receipt for a charitable donation. If you provide nonprofit information in the Nonprofit tab of your fundraiser, we will include the following language in automatic thank you emails that also indicate the amount of the donation:
This receipt confirms that you have made a donation in the amount of $X to [Nonprofit Organization] with a tax-exempt EIN: [EIN #]

Can I get my donations deposited into an organization or business bank account?

Yes, but you would still have to provide individual identification to verify your identity as a representative of that account for fraud and compliance reasons. You do not necessarily need to be an official representative of that business account.

Another great component to SeeMeFunded is the Amazon Wish List in which Project Managers can order from the following Wish List which will be our direct Amazon Store! 🙂

Security

We use Stripe to process payments and donations. We are PCI compliant. All credit card information entered is transmitted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology, assuming that you have selected the secure server method and that your browser supports this functionality. No credit card information is transmitted through, nor stored on, Piggybackr servers. All credit card information goes directly to our payment processors. Regardless, no data transmission over the public Internet is ever guaranteed to be 100% secure.

The security of your personal information is important to us. We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
