Links to third party websites

This Website may contain hyperlinks to websites operated by third parties and not by us. We provide such hyperlinks for your reference only. We do not control such websites and are not responsible for their contents or the privacy or other practices of such websites. Further, it is your responsibility to take precautions to ensure that whatever links you click on or software that you download, whether from this Website or other websites or applications, is free of such items as viruses, worms, trojan horses, defects and other items of a destructive nature. Our inclusion of hyperlinks to such websites does not imply any endorsement of the material on such websites or any association with their operators.

No Solicitation

The Website and Services provide users with the ability to make donations to designated Veita Project clients such as nonprofits, individuals, or other entities (“client”, “clients”). You acknowledge and agree that the displaying of a nonprofit client on the Website does not constitute a solicitation of donations, and that Veita Project does not engage in any solicitation activities on behalf of any of the clients that may be displayed on the Website.

Donations and Payment Processing

When a user chooses to support a client, their donation is distributed directly to the chosen person or entity.

Clients that create a Stripe account of their own, and link that account with a GiveWP donation form receive donations directly. When a donation is made through the Website, it is directed immediately to the client’s Stripe account. Therefore, the donation tax receipt Veita Project or a nonprofit client sends a donor will represent a direct tax-deductible donation to the selected nonprofit client. Veita Project does not take custody of any donations made on the Website.

Stripe terms can be found on https://stripe.com/legal/ssa.

Request for Refunds or Returns of Donations

Donations made directly to a client are not returnable or refundable by Veita Project. You must contact the client directly in order to request a refund. Veita Project cannot guarantee that the client you donated to will be able to honor your request. Veita Project does not have direct control over funds donated to clients and will not be held responsible for refund requests that are rejected by the client. Please refer to the applicable email receipt when requesting a refund or return. 

Payment Methods

We currently accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, JCB, Discover, and Diners Club. Veita Project uses the third party payment platforms, Stripe, Inc. ( “Stripe” ), to process credit card and debit card transactions. Although the collection of your credit card or bank account information takes place on our Website, after your payment information is entered, it is securely transmitted to Stripe, which process all credit card and debit card donation/payment transactions and manage the routing of applicable customer information through the processing networks.

Veita Project is not affiliated with GiveWP or any Payment Processor and we are not responsible in any way for their actions or performance. Accordingly, Veita Project expressly disclaims responsibility and liability for all services provided by Stripe including those related to donation/payment transactions, and you hereby agree that we shall not be responsible for any loss or damage of any sort incurred as a result of your use of such services. Additionally, since the Payment Processor will have access to the information you provide them when making a donation, we advise that you review their privacy policy – which can be found on their website located at www.stripe.com.

You acknowledge and agree that, for all donations/payment transactions, you will only use a valid credit or debit card, and that you are the authorized account holder. Additionally, you also acknowledge and understand that, like any tax-deductible charitable donation, your donation may not be canceled or returned once it has been processed, all donations/payment transactions are final and non-refundable as soon as a donation is processed.

When a donation is made, the Payment Processor may collect a variable processing fee depending on the payment method you select. The Payment Processor may offer discounted transaction rates for 501(c)(3) organizations.
