It should be noted that Victory Center Users may have different combinations of permissions (to view/edit transactions, Donors, Donation Forms, Funds, etc.). Further, any User having permission to edit other Users has the broadest permission available because such a user can edit her own permissions or create a new User with any of the available permissions.

3. Description of Service
Victory Center INC provides a donation management system that enables the Organization to receive a credit card or bank transfer funded donation into its bank account via the Internet. An Organization addresses Donors using Donation Forms, each of which can be customized by the Organization.
The owner ("Account Owner") and first User of a Victory Center INC account ("Account") is typically the individual that sets up the Account on the Organization's behalf and has the authority to add additional Users. Password protected Accounts enable Users to access their Organization's Donation Center where, among other things, a User customizes Donation Form templates for each one of an Organization's funds. Donation Forms are assigned unique URL addresses and are meant to be visited directly at those addresses, or embedded in web sites that Donors visit, such as the Organization's web site.
Donors who access one of your Donation Forms can fund their donation from a credit card account or from a bank account. After entering their personal and account information in the Donation Form, a Donor is asked if they wish to donate now. A Donor's affirmative response signals the Merchant Account to process the donation. In the case of a credit card transaction, a near simultaneous authorization of funds occurs. Bank transfers may require several days. Should a Donor desire to make periodic/recurring donations, the Service provides a facility for this purpose.
While creating and customizing Donation Forms is a key feature of the Donation Center, it is by no means limited to this function. In particular, the Donation Center also provides reports, transaction information, Donor management, Account settings, and other features.
4. Donation Accounting
4.1 One Or More Donation Forms. Because Organizations may invite donations to support more than one cause, project, or other undertaking, the Service allows creation of multiple Donation Forms and multiple Funds (for internal tracking purposes). Each form can be associated with one or more funds which allows the Service to track donations made to each fund. Additionally, because Funds are optional, Donation Forms may simply provide for donations to be made without specifying a fund.
4.2 One Bank Account. During registration, you will identify a single bank account, the Organization Bank Account, for receiving donations. No matter which Donation Form/fund a Donor elects to use, proceeds from the donation will be deposited in the Organization Bank Account.
4.3 Donation Reports. Near simultaneous reporting on donations is available from the Service. In particular, reports include those detailing an Organization's receipts for one or more funds for arbitrary periods such as daily, monthly, quarterly, and annual reports.
4.4 Organization Bank Reporting. The Organization Bank Account will receive the full proceeds from the Organization's donations in rolling daily batches. Once per month, Victory Center INC will charge its fees and provide a billing statement. Fees paid in connection with your Merchant Account and any other fees due will be billed by the provider of your Merchant Account.
5. Use Of Service
5.1 Purpose. The purpose of this Service is to make online donations simple. An Organization registers for the Service through its Account Owner who has the right to authorize additional Users. Users with basic computer and browser skills can access the Donation Center, create Donation Forms, and manage their Organization's online donations. In particular, Victory Center INC enables Organizations such as charitable organizations and other Donor funded entities to quickly implement online donations with customized Donation Forms, transaction processing, and reporting. The Service also provides an audit trail showing who/what/when for each Donor transaction and for selected changes Users make to information stored by the Service. Using or attempting to use this site for a purpose other than the above is not supported by Victory Center INC and is, to the extent permitted by law, prohibited.
5.2 Donation Form Exemplary Language. Customized Donation Forms are built by each Organization from a template provided by Victory Center INC. To the extent that Donation Form language is editable, it is the Organization's responsibility to delete, edit, and otherwise adapt Donation Form language to properly and accurately inform Donors about the Organization, the fund, and the contemplated donations to the Organization's fund. For example, an Organization that enjoys tax-exempt status will inform Donors of this fact while an Organization without this status will inform Donors it lacks this status and that donations will, as a consequence, be taxable. Further, although Victory Center INC provides default alternative language concerning tax deductible donations, it is the Organization's sole responsibility to determine whether donations it receives are tax deductible and to advise Donors accordingly.
5.3 Linking. You are granted the right to create a "hypertext" link to any of your Donation Forms. If you change the location of a Donation Form, you are responsible for maintaining old/existing links to the Donation Form. Where there is misuse of the Service in connection with your Account, we reserve the right to disable links to your Donation Forms. You may not use framing techniques to enclose any Victory Center trademark, logo or trade name or other proprietary information including the images we create or images you create using our templates. Links to third party sites on our Site are provided solely as a convenience to you. If you use these links, you will leave our Site. Victory Center INC has not reviewed all of these third party sites and does not control and is not responsible for any of these sites, their content or their policies, including, without limitation, privacy policies or lack thereof. Other than its qualification of payment processor(s) listed herein for purposes of establishing compatibility to transfer information, Victory Center INC does not endorse or make any representations about third party sites or any information, software or other products or materials found there, or any results that may be obtained from using them. If you decide to access a third party site linked to this site, you do so entirely at your own risk. You acknowledge and agree that Victory Center INC shall not be responsible or liable, directly or indirectly, for any damage or loss caused or alleged to be caused by, or in connection with the use of or reliance on any such third party sites.
5.4 Limited Access. Except as otherwise expressly permitted by Victory Center INC, any access or attempt to access private and/or non-user areas of Victory Center Donation's computer system and information contained therein or reachable thereby for any purposes is strictly prohibited. You agree that you will not use any robot, spider, other automatic device, or manual process to "screen scrape," monitor, "mine," or copy the Web pages on the Site or the content contained therein without Victory Center Donation's prior, express, and written permission. You will not spam or send unsolicited e-mail to any other user of the Site for any reason.

7. Payment Terms
7.1 Our Fees. You agree to pay a Victory Center INC service fee ("Service Fee") in connection with your use of the Service. The Service Fee is 1 % of each Donor's donation. For example, when a Donor makes a $100 donation using the Service, the Victory Center INC Service Fee for this donation is one dollar. In the case that a Donor's donation does not result in funds being transferred to the Organization Bank Account, there is no Service Fee.
7.2 Payment of Our Fees. You agree that Victory Center INC will directly debit the Organization Bank Account to collect the Service Fee and that you will take all reasonable and necessary steps to set up and to maintain Victory Center Donation's right and ability to receive the Service Fees from this account. Should your bank charge us for a transaction defect such as insufficient funds "NSF," or for any other reason, we will include this amount in your Service Fee.
7.3 Other Fees. You will also pay fees to others. In particular, your Organization will require the services of a payment processor in the form of a Merchant Account. BluePay or another payment processor you select will invoice you directly for this service. Should you opt to accept credit card donations, you will also require periodic audit services showing your compliance with data security requirements, for example Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS) compliance.
7.4 Unpaid Amounts. Your failure to fully satisfy amounts that you owe us on demand will be a breach of this Agreement. You will be liable for our costs associated with collection in addition to the amount collected, including without limitation attorneys' fees, court costs, collection agency fees, and any applicable interest. Victory Center reserves the right to cancel your Victory Center INC Account due to unpaid fees. Cancellation results in the suspension of any/all of your Donation Forms and any/all recurring donations scheduled to be made by your Donors.
7.5 Taxes. You are responsible for determining any and all taxes and duties, including without limitation, sales, use, transfer, value added, withholding, income, and other taxes and/or duties assessed, incurred, or required to be collected, paid, or withheld for any reason in connection with any donation made to you, your use of the Service and the Site, or otherwise in connection with any action, inaction, or omission by you or any affiliate of yours, or any of your or their respective employees, agents, contractors, or representatives. You also are responsible for collecting, withholding, reporting, and remitting correct Taxes to the appropriate tax authority. We are not obligated to determine whether Taxes apply and are not responsible for calculating, collecting, reporting, or remitting any Taxes to any tax authority arising from any donation. Victory Center INC reporting tools in the Donation Center assist you with tracking financial information for your donations and Donors. However, these reporting tools are not intended to be sufficient for handling your tax reporting and you should not rely on them for this purpose. Note that your transaction data can be exported from Victory Center INC and used, for example, in accounting software of your tax professional.
8.1 Your Rights. You may terminate this Agreement by closing your Account at any time. Any amounts owed to Victory Center INC will be due and payable upon termination and collected by us as described above.

13. General Provisions
13.1 Electronic Notices and Your Consent. We primarily communicate with you via your registered electronic address. By registering for the Service and accepting the terms of this Agreement, you affirmatively consent to receive notices electronically from us (your "Consent"). You agree that we may provide all communications and transactions related to the Service and your Account, including without limitation agreements related to the Service, amendments or changes to such agreements, disclosures, notices, transaction information, statements, policies (including without limitation notices about our Privacy Notice), responses to claims, and other customer communications that we may be required to provide to you by law in electronic format (collectively, " Communications"). All Communications by us will be sent either (a) via e-mail, (b) by providing access to a Website that we designate in an e-mail, or (c) posting to our Site. All Communications will be deemed to be in "writing" and received by you when sent to you. You are responsible for creating and maintaining your own records of such Communications. You must send notices to us at the designated e-mail address(es) on the Site or through the submission forms on the Site. We reserve the right to discontinue or modify how we provide Communications. We will give you prior notice of any change. Your continued Consent is required to use the Service and your Account. To withdrawal your Consent, you will need to close your Account.
13.1.1 Requirements. To access, view, and retain Communications, you must have a computer with appropriate software and access to a personal, active e-mail account. You are responsible for any costs or fees associated with these requirements, including without limitation charges for telecommunications services. We will give you prior notice if we make a change to the requirements for receiving Communications.
13.1.2 Updating Your Information. As with all information that you provide to us for your Account, it is your responsibility to ensure that your phone number and e-mail address is accurate and remains current. To ensure that we are able to provide you with important Communications, you must update us with any change in your e-mail address.
13.1.3 Requesting Paper Copies. Communications will not be distributed in paper unless you contact us and request a paper version of a particular document. We reserve the right to charge you a handling fee for any notices that we physically mail to you at your request or because your e-mail addresses fail.
13.2 Governing Law and Venue. The Service, the Site, and Donation Center are arranged, sponsored, and managed by us in the State of California, USA. The laws of the State of California govern this Agreement and all of its terms and conditions, without giving effect to any principles of conflicts of laws. Any dispute relating in any way to your visit to the Site or Donation Center or to our services in which the aggregate total claim for relief sought on behalf of one or more parties exceeds $5,000 shall be adjudicated in any state court in Ventura County, California or in any federal court of the Central District of California, Western Division, and you consent to exclusive jurisdiction and venue in such courts.
13.3 Assignment. You may not assign or transfer any rights, obligations, or privileges that you have under this Agreement without our prior written consent. Subject to the foregoing, this Agreement will be binding on each party's successors and permitted assigns. Any assignment or transfer in violation of this section will be deemed null and void.
13.4 No Waiver. We will not be considered to have waived any of our rights or remedies, or portion of them, unless the waiver is in writing and signed by us. Our failure to enforce the strict performance of any provision of this Agreement (including any Policy) will not constitute a waiver of our right to subsequently enforce such provision or any other provisions of this Agreement (including any Policy).
13.5 No Agency. Nothing in this Agreement is intended to or creates any type of joint venture, employee-employer, creditor-debtor, escrow, partnership, or any fiduciary relationship between you or us.
13.6 Severability. If any portion of this Agreement is held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid or unenforceable, the remaining portions of this Agreement will remain in full force and effect and, upon our request, the court will construe any invalid or unenforceable portions in a manner that most closely reflects the effect and intent of the original language. If such construction is not possible, the provision will be severed from this Agreement and the rest of the Agreement remains in full force and effect.
