Camp Freedom’s Raffle for the 2 Jeep Gladiators Built by Count’s Kustoms
Hope I Win Site Terms
By accessing or using the HopeIWin software application product and related services (the “System”), whether as a charitable organization (“charity”) that sells raffle tickets or a purchaser or potential purchaser of raffle tickets, you agree to the following terms:
HopeIWin (“we”, “us”) is a website offering software application services rendered to charities seeking to raise revenue through raffles. We do not, at any time, maintain or handle prizes forming part of a raffle; and do not, and will not, manage or coordinate the delivery of prizes. Furthermore, any charity using the System may elect to manage delivery of tickets independent of the System.
As a purchaser of raffle tickets through the System, you acknowledge and agree that we have no liability to you for any issues relating to prizing, and that your recourse is with the specific charity or through the processes established under laws of the applicable jurisdiction that regulate raffles and other gaming activities. If tickets are identified by the System as being delivered by the charity to you, then as a purchaser of raffle tickets through the System, you acknowledge and agree that we have no liability to you for any issues relating to ticketing or delivery, and that your recourse is with the specific charity or through the processes established under the laws of applicable jurisdictions laws that regulate raffles and other gaming activities.
As a charity that sells raffle tickets through the System, you agree that all prize delivery matters will be managed by your charity or its agents; and that you will indemnify and hold HopeIWin harmless from any claims that are made against us arising from, or related to, prizing in the raffle. Should you elect to manage delivery of tickets independent of HopeIWin, then you agree that all ticket delivery matters will be managed by your charity or its agents; and that your charity will indemnify and hold HopeIWin harmless from any claims that are made against HopeIWin arising from, or related to, raffle ticket delivery.
2. Account Security.
By using the System, you permit HopeIWin to collect data from or about you. We acknowledge the importance that you place on protecting your privacy and, as such, shall use commercially reasonable efforts to safeguard any individually identifiable data acquired from or about you, including without limitation, names, addresses or credit card information; against unauthorized access or use. Additionally, HopeIWin shall not, without your prior written consent, use, sell, license, lease or otherwise transfer such data to any third party or export data to any location outside of the country in which HopeIWin may have acquired such data. You agree to allow HopeIWin to use your individually identifiable data to send materials to you (including offers to purchase HopeIWin or third party services); as well as for building of HopeIWin proprietary databases relating to service offerings and service requests.
HopeIWin will: (i) allow you to access any data HopeIWin may have regarding you; (ii) allow you to correct any incorrect or incomplete data regarding you; (iii) comply with any request from you to remove your name from the customer list maintained by HopeIWin and (iv) upon receipt of a request as described in clause (iii) provide no further marketing materials to you. Upon the expiration or termination of this Agreement, HopeIWin shall have no obligation to return to you, or destroy, any lists, or other data regarding you, acquired from you; and you agree that HopeIWin may retain any copies of such data in hard copy or electronic form.
You provide us permission and instruction to communicate your information to the charity to which you are purchasing products from. For clarity, the System uses third-party payment processors engaged by a charity for the purchase of products from the charity; and, therefore, HopeIWin will never have access to your credit card information.
In order to use our services, we charge a flat monthly fee to those charities that use the System.
