About in/PACT

in/PACT is a cloud-based enterprise charitable giving platform which allows companies and brands to empower their customers (users) to either make a donation to their favorite charity, or receive a small contribution funded by the brand which they are in turn able to direct to their favorite charity or cause.

When you use the Platform or other affiliated sites, you will be connected to selected brands and merchants that generate contributions towards your personal and favorite Charity when you interact with them, or which enable you to make a personal contribution.

The Services also include a Rewards Program (as described below) that is based on “GoodCoins,” which is a form of a loyalty or points system. The Services and Platform are collectively referred to here as "in/PACT."

Participation Types

There are several ways for users to ‘participate’ in the in/PACT platform. These may include but are not limited to the following:

  • Collect & Direct - where a user collects GoodCoins or dollars for completing a desired behavior with a brand and is then given the opportunity to direct that amount to the charity of their choice.
  • User Donations - where a user gives their own dollars to a charity of their choice through a payment method provided by in/PACT.
  • Reward Redemption - where a user redeems points in a brand loyalty program as a charitable contribution to the charity of their choice.

GoodCoins

GoodCoins may be purchased outright by a user or earned in a variety of ways as designated by the contributing merchants, brands or in/PACT. Additionally, brands may also offer users (also known as "Brand Ambassadors") the ability to earn GoodCoins for their designated Charity based on the purchases of people or organizations that they have successfully invited to join in/PACT. Merchants may opt to allocate GoodCoins to the user’s Charity based on the activities of the user. The amount of GoodCoins awarded may be promotion or campaign specific and is at all times at the discretion of in/PACT and may change in whole or in part as determined by in/PACT and without prior notice. in/PACT retains the right to interpret the rules with respect to the Rewards Program in its sole discretion and you hereby agree to our interpretation.

Additionally and except as otherwise provided or explicitly agreed, GoodCoins are not returnable or refundable for cash, except where required by law or explicitly stated in advance by in/PACT. Resale of GoodCoins, except where required by law, without the expressed permission of in/PACT is strictly prohibited.

GoodCoins expire three years after the date of issuance or purchase, except where expiration is prohibited by law.

Charities pay a processing fee to the GoodCoin Foundation to be withheld from their owed payment on all contributions directed to them. The fee is calculated per directed transaction generating new contribution to Charities.

GoodCoins is an owned trademark of the GoodCoin Foundation.

The GoodCoin Foundation:

All donations will be sent first to the GoodCoin Foundation, an international foundation dedicated to connecting people with their passions through social good. The GoodCoin Foundation will facilitate payment to the charities selected during purchase. All charity selections are subject to review of the charity or nonprofit that has been selected.

The GoodCoin Foundation has the right to deny payment if Charity is found and will find a suitable alternative to direct your donation to within the same Charity category.

For more information on The GoodCoin Foundation, please their website at: https://goodcoinfoundation.org/

Charities

in/PACT will allocate GoodCoins to a user's nominated Charity. A Charity may be a non-profit, charity or other appropriate specific nominee. A Charity must first register with in/PACT or have its profile created under the “Unclaimed Profile” section in order to be selected by a user as their chosen Charities and receive GoodCoins. Users can “create” or add a Charity to the platform if it is not available and it will be included as an unclaimed profile that they and others can collect contributions for. in/PACT will attempt to contact the Charity in order to claim their profile and start collecting contributions.

If a Charity does not register to participate or becomes ineligible, the user will have a chance to select a different Charity or we will redistribute donations earned among other participating Charities

Charities should not incite hatred, be jingoistic, be offensive or violate any applicable federal, state, local and international law or regulation. in/PACT reserves the right to remove any Charity from the in/PACT Platform that in/PACT, at its sole discretion, deems to be inappropriate. Any charity that is removed from the in/PACT Platform or suspended will automatically lose their right to any accumulated GoodCoins. in/PACT does not guarantee the legitimacy of a particular Charity and does not choose the Charity. The community is responsible for alerting in/PACT of any Charity that appears to be inconsistent with the spirit of in/PACT or is otherwise suspect.

Our Relationship with and Requirements of Merchants and Brands

Merchants/Brands are an integral part of the in/PACT platform and sit between the user/Charity supporter and the Charity. in/PACT provides the platform and tools to reach, engage and acquire new prospective customers. In addition, we provide the merchant/brand with the possibility for meaningful interaction with your network and the in/PACT community in a manner that benefits Charities and our collective communities.

You, the Brand, should regularly verify the list of Charities with respect to your network of users. You may want to remove some Charities deemed inconsistent with your overall brand concept and we authorize this aspect and will assist accordingly in taking reasonable efforts to screen causes but we can’t make any guarantees in this regard. in/PACT is designed to be a community of caring and responsible participants and we reserve all rights to monitor and take those actions we deem appropriate and consistent with the desires and image of those Brands participating on the platform.
