Terms & Conditions
How We Operate
Anython.com is a service that enables Users to collect money into their own WePay or FirstGiving accounts. Upon becoming a user through the Registration process (who receives funds) or a donor (who gives funds), you are subject to these Terms and Conditions of Use.
When you sign up as a donor, you agree to pay at least $5 as a flat donation, or a per-unit pledge that equals at least $5. If you pledge per unit, you will be required to pay at least the minimum number of units earned by each participant up front. However, you will not have to pay for more than the maximum number of units earned if your participant completes more than the maximum units allowed during their Anython. You provide your payment information, and you agree you will pay (and will allow us to charge your credit card for) no less than the minimum (you will need to pay the minimum even if the participant in the event relating to your donation could not participate for any reason, i.e. sickness, injury, etc.). Upon the completion of the event relating to your donation, you will receive an e-mail informing you whether you are obligated to pay only the minimum or whether more is required. We will then charge your credit card what is still owed to complete your pledge. Often more will be charged, but never more than the maximum unit price allowed for your Anython pledge. For instance, if participants in a Jogathon promise to run between 10-30 miles, your pledge of $1/mile will be charged as follows: $10 up front, and between $0-20 after the event is over, based on the results. You card will be automatically charged and you will receive a receipt.
Our partners (WePay in the USA) ensure that all donations go directly to you automatically. If you're raising money for a company through FirstGiving, those payments are processed by FirstGiving and are given to your charity according to FirstGiving's schedule.
You are also agreeing to one of the following fees, along with the linked Terms & Conditions found below, based on your selection during the Anython sign-up process. Only one (1) of the fees described below will be applied per Anython campaign - not a combination thereof:
U.S. Users ONLY: WePay charges 2.9% and $0.30 per transaction. Read WePay's Terms & Conditions.
FirstGiving charges 4%. Read FirstGiving's Terms & Conditions.
All fees are deducted from each transaction automatically.
FirstGiving and WePay are not in our control, and their fees may change without notice to us.
Your Anython online donation page you publish will be publicly available on the Internet. You will have the ability to choose what to place on your donation page (such as recent donations, messages, etc.), but the page itself will be public. Donors will have the option to show the world that they have donated. To hide your donation, make sure you click on the "Privateâ€ button when you are donating.
All users and donors must abide by these Terms and Conditions of Use, and all users and donors are responsible for complying with all applicable laws.
