ACCESS AND USE OF THE SERVICES
The Services Description: The Services are offered as a platform to allow an individual, entity or non-profit organization (the "Organizer") to post a fundraiser ("Fundraiser") to the Platform to accept monetary donations ("Donations") from donors ("Donors") on behalf of the beneficiary of the Fundraiser ("Beneficiary").
Transaction Fee: Although there are no fees to start or maintain a Fundraiser, please keep in mind that a transaction fee is deducted from each donation (hereinafter and on the website referred to as "Transaction Fee"). To learn more about the Platform and the applicable Transaction Fee, visit Miya Pricing. This fee excludes and is not related to credit and debit charges deducted by payment processors.
The Services are Platforms. We are not a Broker, Financial Institution, Creditor or Charity. The Services are administrative platforms only. Miya facilitates the Fundraiser of the Organizers and permits Donors to make donations to these Fundraisers. Miya is not a broker, agent, financial institution, creditor or nonprofit corporation.
All information and content provided by Miya relating to the Services is for informational purposes only, and Miya does not guarantee the accuracy, completeness, timeliness or reliability of any such information or content. No content is intended to provide financial, legal, tax or other professional advice. Before making any decisions regarding any Fundraisers, Charities (as defined below), Donations, Donors, or any information or content relating to the Services, you should consult your financial, legal, tax or other professional advisor as appropriate. You acknowledge that all information and content accessed by you using the Services is at your own risk.
Miya has no control over the conduct of, or any information provided by, a User and hereby disclaims all liability in this regard to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law. We do not guarantee that a Fundraiser will obtain a certain amount of Donations or any Donations at all. We do not endorse any Fundraiser, User, or cause and we make no guarantee, express or implied, that any information provided through the Services is accurate. We expressly disclaim any liability or responsibility for the outcome or success of any Fundraiser. You, as a Donor, must make the final determination as to the value and appropriateness of contributing to any User or Fundraiser.
No Solicitation: The Platform is offered to help Organizers raise money. Miya only provides the technology to allow Fundraisers to connect with Donors. The existence of the Services is not a solicitation of donations by Miya, and Miya does not engage in any solicitation activities, or consult on the solicitation of contributions from the public, on behalf of any individual, entity, or organization. By using the Services, you understand and agree that Miya is not responsible for the use of your Donations or the amount of funds raised for the User or Fundraiser.
Donors: All Donations are at your own risk. When you make a Donation through the Platform, it is your responsibility to understand how your money will be used and to check the Fundraiser content regularly for any updates. Miya is not responsible for any offers, promises, rewards or Promotions (as defined below) made or offered by Users or Fundraisers; such conduct violates these Terms of Service. We do not and cannot verify the information that Users or Fundraisers supply, nor do we represent or guarantee that the Donations will be used in accordance with any fundraising purpose prescribed by a User or Fundraiser or in accordance with applicable laws. Notwithstanding the foregoing, we take possible fraudulent activity and the misuse of funds reported to us very seriously. You can learn more about How We Protect Our Community. If you have reason to believe that a User or Fundraiser is not raising or using the funds for their stated purpose, please use the Ã¢â¬ÅReportÃ¢â¬Â button on the Fundraiser to alert our team of this potential issue and we will investigate. If you are a Donor, you may also be covered by the Miya Giving Guarantee.

The failure of Miya to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms of Service will not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.
