PLEASE READ THESE BUSINESS TERMS OF SERVICE CAREFULLY BEFORE DOWNLOADING, INSTALLING OR USING DAILYKARMA’S SHOP FOR GOOD SHOPIFY APP, OR ANY OTHER APPLICATION OR SOFTWARE DAILYKARMA MAKES AVAILABLE FOR USE BY BUSINESSES OR BRANDS, IN CONNECTION WITH ITS SHOP FOR GOOD SERVICE OR OTHERWISE. BY DOWNLOADING, INSTALLING OR USING DAILYKARMA’S SHOP FOR GOOD SHOPIFY APP, OR EXECUTING AN ENROLLMENT, SUBSCRIPTION OR OTHER AGREEMENT WITH DAILYKARMA THAT SPECIFICALLY INCORPORATES THESE BUSINESS TERMS OF SERVICE, YOU ARE AGREEING TO THESE BUSINESS TERMS OF SERVICE.
WHERE USED BELOW, “AGREEMENT” MEANS THESE BUSINESS TERMS OF SERVICE OR, IF YOU HAVE EXECUTED AN ENROLLMENT, SUBSCRIPTION OR OTHER AGREEMENT WITH DAILYKARMA THAT SPECIFICALLY INCORPORATES THESE BUSINESS TERMS OF SERVICE, “AGREEMENT” MEANS THESE BUSINESS TERMS OF SERVICE PLUS THE TERMS OF THE ENROLLMENT, SUBSCRIPTION OR OTHER AGREEMENT BETWEEN YOU AND DAILYKARMA, INC.
1.1 Shop for Good. DK has developed the “Shop for Good” program (“DK Program”) and software plugin (including any updates thereto, “DK Software”) to enable brands to offer the opportunity to give a portion of sales to a cause or their consumers to donate to a cause and in some cases receive a discount on the products of the brand.
1.2 Company Responsibility. The company is responsible for passing along all donations collected and configured through DK Software on their site, to DK to process and distribute to charity.
1.3 Further DK Obligations Regarding Donations. DailyKarma works with The DailyKarma Foundation, a nonprofit 501(c)(3) public charity that is independent of the DailyKarma company. The DailyKarma Foundation is overseen by the independent Board of The GoodCoin Foundation. You may visit their website at this link (www.goodcoinfoundation.org)
DailyKarma partners with The DailyKarma Foundation to expand and facilitate giving to thousands of charities. This partnership ensures that donations made through any of DailyKarma’s services, features, or tools made available on or through DailyKarma (including, but not limited to any widget, form, or other tools for marketing, communications, social sharing, event registration, branding, donation, integration, customization or promotions) create broad benefits for the nonprofit sector.
Donations made on DailyKarma’s software result in payments from The DailyKarma Foundation. The total transactions across the DailyKarma platform are tallied and payments are distributed by the Board of The DailyKarma Foundation on a regular basis (typically within 30 days). The DailyKarma Foundation does not charge an additional fee to the charity for payment processing. Confirmation of donations can be made at any time by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by consulting IRS 990 filings with the US Internal Revenue Service for EIN 47-5570019.
Depending on the geographical scope of your campaign, the options provided customers, the number of charities involved, and the annual volume of transactions, The DailyKarma Foundation and DailyKarma comply with all Commercial Co-Venture Agreement filings as required in various States and jurisdictions as long as the DailyKarma Shop for Good plugin is displayed on your website.
Donate for Discount: Any contribution made through the Shop for Good plugin is not tax deductible. DailyKarma guarantees that all funds designated by customers for charity will go to the charity they indicate, oftentimes more. The funds for these payments come from the DailyKarma Donor-advised Fund held at The DailyKarma Foundation and are not considered customer donations because the funds have already been given to The DailyKarma Foundation by DailyKarma. Under the Donate for Discount program payments are directed from this previously existing fund based on the aggregate total amount of customer-directed giving to that charity across the DailyKarma platform.
RoundUp and other direct customer donations could be considered tax-deductible to the customer but do not require a formal acknowledgement by The DailyKarma Foundation until they exceed $250 per customer (see: https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/p1771.pdf). However, a Commercial Co-Venture Agreement is required for these transactions. This agreement is between The DailyKarma Foundation (the recipient charity) and DailyKarma (the Commercial Co-venturer). The agreement is available for your review and has been filed in advance with the requesting authorities. The DailyKarma Foundation initiates payment of these funds to the charities indicated by your customers as the next step in completing the transaction.
Promotions that are based on a percentage of sales also trigger Commercial Co-Venture Agreement filings. These contributions are not tax-deductible for your customers because they are receiving something of value for their contribution. For you, as a client of DailyKarma, these transactions are generally considered to be a marketing expense for tax efficiency, but ask your accountant what works best in your situation. As with other Commercial Co-venture Agreement rules and regulations, payments to charities are ultimately made by The DailyKarma Foundation.
1.4 Donation Processing Fees A 10% donation processing fee + 2.9% + 30 cent fee is deducted from all donations prior to being processed to the selected charity unless otherwise stated.
1.5 Billing. All donations accrued through your store will be billed to the credit card on file on the 2nd of every month (or the following business day). If the credit card on file fails, we will attempt to reprocess the card on file 3 days later.
By uninstalling Shop for Good, you agree to be billed for any outstanding donations accrued from the period in which Shop for Good was installed. This may result in being billed in the following month’s billing cycle.
1.6 International Users. The Shop for Good app can be accessed from countries around the world and is available in many countries (including Canada, England, and Australia) although it may contain references to Services and Content that are not available in your country. These references do not imply that DailyKarma intends to announce such Services or Content in your country. Shop for Good and other DailyKarma properties are controlled and offered by DailyKarma from its facilities in the United States of America.
1.7 Communications from DailyKarma. When accessing and/or using the Services, Companies are communicating with DailyKarma electronically and consent to receive communications from DailyKarma electronically. DailyKarma will communicate with Companies by e-mail and/or by posting notices electronically in the Shop for Good administrative dashboard. In the event a Company cancels its Account or relationship with DailyKarma, the Company may continue to receive promotional electronic communications from DailyKarma unless the Company elects to opt-out of receiving those communications.
2.1 Ownership of DK Software. As between DK and Company, DK is the sole owner of all rights, title and interest, including all intellectual property rights, in and to the DK Software, and any modifications, improvements or enhancements of the DK Software.
