AND RULES GOVERNING PARTICIPATION
TERMS AND CONDITIONS GOVERNING PARTICIPATION
IMPORTANT DEFINITIONS AND CONCEPTS:
SBP – School Bell Partners. SBP may also be referred to herein as “we” or “us” or “our”.
K-12 or School – Any accredited public or private educational institutions (serving grades Pre-K through 12th) located in the 50 United States, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, Virgin Islands and Guam, (private institutions must be recognized as tax exempt under Internal Revenue Code section 501(c)(3) and described under IRC section 170(b)(1)(A)(ii)). Schools must be housed in a facility zoned as a school building by the local municipality, county, or other governing body. Colleges and day care centers not providing pre-K classes do not qualify. Eligibility for this Fundraiser is determined by SBP and the School. A K-12 or School may also be referred to herein as “you” or “your”.
Fundraiser – Any SBP online fundraising program in which participating Schools engage by agreeing to the Terms and Conditions contained herein, and by complying with any other requirements of the Fundraiser. SBP Fundraisers are branded with names including but not limited to schoolFUNDCenter and DigiSchoolCart.
Website(s) – SPB websites and other websites that use SBP’s Mini-Window (“SMW”).
Sponsors – Schools that have placed the SMW on their School website’s webpages will be eligible to earn contributions in the form of Bonus Rewards as well as from national-regional Sponsors (“National-Regional Sponsors”) and/or local businesses (“Local Businesses”) (Local Businesses and National-Regional Sponsors, each a “Sponsor”, and collectively, “Sponsors”) who will be recognized within the Sponsor Window added at prominent locations on each School’s website by School website managers.
TERMS AND CONDITIONS:
SCHOOL SIGN UP: In order to receive earned contributions, an authorized School representative is first required to complete a Fundraiser engagement process at www.schoolFUNDCenter.com (or another Fundraiser-designated website) and provide the required information about the School, the authorized representative and optionally the Schools’ website manager. This required information may include but is not limited to names, addresses, phone numbers, School’s published website URL, the name of the principal or superintendent, email addresses, the School’s bank account information (for electronic payment) or payee information (for payment by check), and the name/email address/phone and title of the School’s main contact responsible for administering the Fundraiser on behalf of the School. Upon review, verification of eligibility, and acceptance of the School information by SBP, the School’s participation in the Fundraiser will be confirmed, and the School may request withdrawals of earned contributions at any time, not to exceed more than once per month. Due to the high cost of processing and sending contributions, only withdrawal requests of $50.00 or more will be honored.
- Assumptions. SBP projects that more than $400 per participating School family per year can be raised through the Fundraiser, based on funds committed by Sponsors, together with a reasonable amount of parent/teacher/school family participation per School. SBP cannot exactly predict the volume and timing of participation and therefore does not guarantee that this rate of fundraising will take place or, over what time period. Visit http://schoolfundcenter.com/faqs/ for more details.
- Affiliate Program. In this program, purchases made through clicking on sponsorships in the SMW result in commissions from the corresponding Sponsors which are shared by SBP and the Schools. The value is in a portion of the money spent by Website visitors who click on the sponsorships and subsequently purchase products and/or services from the Sponsors.
- Every Click Counts (“ECC”). To encourage Affiliate Program purchases, a small donation may be made to each corresponding School for each click (as described in Affiliate Program above). This is called “Every Click Counts” or “ECC”. ECC donation amounts may vary and are published in further detail below in these Terms and Conditions.
FUNDRAISER CONTRIBUTION RATES TO SCHOOLS: Schools earn contributions through SBP from National-Regional Sponsors which the Schools allow to participate, and also directly from Local Businesses the Schools allow to participate.
- National-Regional Sponsorship Contributions: When SBP receives funds from each National-Regional Sponsor that appears in the SMW, the first part of these funds is the contribution from the National-Regional Sponsor to the School, which contribution belongs to the School and is the School’s property. Accounts for Contributions will be maintained separately for each School by SBP. The Contributions may be withdrawn at such times and in such amounts as the School may decide in its sole discretion, not to exceed once per month. The remainder of these funds is the fee for SBP, which SBP will retain for its own account. The specific amounts of the fees and all contributions made to Schools are published further down in these Terms and Conditions. All contributions are credited to each corresponding National-Regional Sponsor.
- Local Business Sponsorship Contributions: The School may arrange contribution amounts from Local Businesses. Payment of the contribution is made by the Local Business directly to the School. SBP has a partner which signs up Local Businesses and maintains their text listing. This partner is “School Website Affinity Network” (“S.W.A.N”). S.W.A.N.’s services are funded by an annual fee. Such fees are accounted for by SBP and payable by Schools to SBP either by check, electronic bank fund transfer, credit/debit card, or adjustments to earned School donation balances (the “Local Sponsor Payment Methods”). SBP is responsible for fee payments to S.W.A.N.
- Bonus Rewards Contributions: K-12s participating in the Bonus Rewards Program, will have added-contribution incentive opportunities contingent on Affiliate Program purchases as described above. These contingency incentive bonuses rewards will be in addition to contributions earned from ECC and Sponsorship Contributions. Bonus Rewards are intended to increase each School’s contributions earned from the Fundraiser.
Bonus Rewards are only earned if Website visitors shop with the Sponsors by clicking through the SMW. Bonus Rewards contributions are earned by Schools in three straightforward ways:
(a) Upon the SMW being placed on a K-12 website for a school that has not opted-out of Bonus Rewards, the first 1,000 participating schools will receive a $250.00 “Welcome Gift” Bonus Reward, of which 1/12 or $20.84 will be added to its K-12 funding, monthly, starting the first month after the first full month of participation, and continuing for the next 12 consecutive months that its website is connected and the Bonus Rewards option is not opted-out of;
(b) For the first 20 purchases made each month, $100 in Bonus Rewards will be earned by the K-12, and added to its contributions earned from Affiliate Program purchases and ECC during the same month;
(c) After the first full month of being connected, a number of purchases (called X here) will be determined. For X purchases above 10 each month, $2.50 in Bonus Rewards will be earned for each purchase and also added to the K-12’s contributions earned from Affiliate Program purchases and ECC during the same month. Each K-12 can find its X by logging in to its SPB Dashboard Account.
The above Bonus Rewards and ECC contributions are subject to change/adjustment without notice, for reasons including, but not limited to: (a) changes with Advertising Services, Advertisers and/or Sponsors participating in Extended Outreach, (b) an unusually high percentage of Website visitors having Cookies disabled, (c) a Website having an unusually low number of visits, or (d) a participating School’s non-compliance with the Rules.
SPONSOR ELIGIBILITY: Businesses that sell, promote, or advertise products or services deemed by SBP and/or individual Schools, in their sole discretion, to be inappropriate will not qualify for participation in the Fundraiser. Examples include but are not limited to businesses specializing in alcohol, tobacco, firearms, and adult content, or any products or services determined by the School not to be suitable for children. Advertising content will be subject to acceptance by SBP and the its advertising providers, but as between K-12s and SBP, the Schools shall remain solely responsible for all advertising content supplied to SBP or its advertising providers by any K-12, or on its behalf. SBP will make reasonable efforts to verify that National-Regional Sponsors are COPPA compliant. However, Schools will be responsible for satisfying themselves that Local Businesses are COPPA compliant.
SCHOOL ACCEPTANCE OF SMW: Schools that participate in the Fundraiser are required to prominently place the SMW on the School website’s home page (main landing page) and sub-pages (linked directly to the home page) and are required to keep the SMW live for a term of no less than one year after commencing participation in this Fundraiser. The SMW is required to be placed where it is most likely visible to all website visitors. If such placement requirements are not met by the School, SBP may discount contribution rates based on the variance from the required placement criteria. Such discounts will be accounted for to National-Regional Sponsors. The School further understands that SMW view and click information will be recorded and retained to allow SBP to track various performance metrics. Among other things, SBP may use this information to help develop SMW enhancements and to report performance statistics. In addition to Sponsor related information, the SMW may also display SBP related content and offers available through the Fundraiser. All content appearing in the SMW and related Sponsor and/or Fundraiser information, are the sole property of SBP or the National-Regional Sponsors, protected by copyright laws, and any copying or re-distribution of such content is prohibited. Each participating School is required to promote its participation by regularly informing all school parents and teachers of the Fundraiser through communications channels and methods commonly used by the School to keep school parents and families informed.
NATIONAL-REGIONAL BUSINESS PARTICIPATION: SBP makes its own efforts to solicit participation from businesses whose trade areas extend beyond local areas where Schools are located. Such businesses include, but are not limited to, retail chain stores, consumer packaged goods brands, and service providers. All such businesses fall under the same eligibility requirements as Sponsors. Each School is notified by SBP of the business’s name, type, and contribution, when a particular business indicates its desire to be included on the School’s website. Upon the School’s acceptance, the business will appear in the SMW on the School’s website, and the School will receive the corresponding contribution.
SPONSOR ACCEPTANCE OF SMW: Sponsors which participate in the Fundraiser agree to allow the business information they provide to be displayed within SBP’s determined templates and layouts, and further agree to allow SBP to track various performance metrics. Among other things, SBP may use this information to help develop SMW enhancements and to report viewing statistics. In addition to Sponsor related information, the SMW may also display SBP related content and offers available through the Fundraiser. All content appearing in the SMW and in the Sponsor information that appears when users click in the SMW, is the sole property of SBP, or each individual Sponsor, protected by copyright laws, and any copying or re-distribution of such content is prohibited. Once appearing in the SMW on a School’s website, a Sponsor will continue to appear. A Sponsor may stop appearing for various reasons including but not limited to: (a) a Sponsor leaving the Fundraiser, (b) a sponsor choosing not to appear on all K-12 Websites participating in the Fundraiser, or (c) a School opting-out of a Sponsor.
LOCAL BUSINESS SIGN UP: In the course of keeping parents and teachers informed of the Fundraiser, Schools are required to inform Local Business owners and operators with children attending their School of the opportunity for Local Businesses to participate. Local Businesses can initiate their participation directly through Schools. The Local Business provides payment of the contribution and identifying information to an authorized School representative. The School then provides this information to SBP, and SBP activates the Local Business listing. Then, the School pays the S.W.A.N. fee to SBP, using one of the Local Business Payment Methods. Finally, SBP pays S.W.A.N.’s annual fee.
SBP AD SERVERS: SBP uses third party ad servers for its ad serving and reporting functions. These ad servers may vary depending on particular SMWs and corresponding content, and are subject to change in SBP’s discretion. Applicable ad server(s) shall be official counter(s) for determining various performance metrics, and other relevant information reported to Schools and Sponsors.
BREAKAGE: By participating in the Bonus Rewards program, a K-12 acknowledges and agrees that its entitlement to Bonus Rewards is not guaranteed but, rather, is contingent on the sales/purchase results achieved by outreach through the K-12’s website. If a K-12 does not earn 100% of the Bonus Rewards to which it otherwise could be entitled (based on the Bonus Rewards contribution rates to Schools described the paragraph above), the unearned portion of such Bonus Rewards (“Breakage”) will be retained by SPB, for rolling three (3) month (quarterly) periods to determine if future months’ sales/purchase results entitle the K-12 to the Bonus Rewards held by SPB. If, at the end of each rolling quarterly period, the K-12 still has not earned the Bonus Rewards which were contingently available to it, SPB may, at its discretion: (a) pay Breakage to the underachieving K-12 despite its failure to attain its sales goal for a particular month, (b) pay Breakage to different, overachieving, K-12s, (c) use Breakage to fund special Bonus Rewards such as scholarships, academic contests, etc., (d) use Breakage to support special promotions that drive ECC click-throughs and Affiliate Program sales/purchases, (e) use Breakage to mitigate SBP financial and/or opportunity losses due to K-12 Website underutilization of Sponsors, or (f) any combination of (a) – (e). Without limiting the foregoing, any K-12 which participates in Bonus Rewards agrees that IT IS NOT ENTITLED TO BONUS REWARDS SIMPLY BY PLACING THE SMW ON THE K-12’s WEBSITE. RATHER, SUCH BONUS REWARDS ARE A CONTINGENT INCENTIVE ONLY, AND ARE EARNED BY PARTICPATING K-12’s BASED ON THE RESULTS OF THEIR AFFILIATE PROGRAM SALES.
NO TRANSFER: Each K-12 acknowledges and agrees that any Extended Outreach pools SBP or its Advertising Provider develop may only be used in connection with SBP’s and its Advertising Provider’s advertising services and platform(s) and are not transferable to any K-12. SBP agrees that SBP will use any such outreach pools solely for the benefit of K-12s participating in the Fundraiser.
DISQUALIFICATION AND FUNDRAISER CHANGE: SBP reserves the right to change these Terms and Conditions, withdraw its services from a School, or disqualify a Sponsor from participation, at any time. All contributions credited to the School per SBP’s records will be paid to the School.
BILL PAYMENT SERVICE: SBP offers Schools and Sponsors the ability for contribution payments to be made and remitted to Schools either electronically or by check, not to exceed more than once per month. Due to the high cost of processing and sending contributions, only withdrawal requests of $50.00 or more will be honored.
LIMITATIONS AND CANCELLATION RIGHT: SBP and any of its affiliate companies are not responsible for late, lost or misdirected data, or any other transmission or recording method errors including jumbled, garbled or illegible data, or for any other errors or malfunctions that may affect any aspect of the Fundraiser. SBP reserves the right to cancel or suspend any Fundraiser at any time without notice. Tracking information and advertising content and metrics are the sole property of SBP.
EXCEPT AS SPECIFICALLY PROVIDED IN THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS, THE FUNDRAISER, AND ALL PRODUCTS AND SERVICES ASSOCIATED THEREWITH, ARE PROVIDED “AS IS” AND WITHOUT ANY WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED. EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY PROVIDED HEREIN, SBP DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, TITLE, OR NON- INFRINGEMENT.
INDEMNIFICATION: By participating in the Fundraiser, Sponsors and Schools, together with their administrators, employees agents, representatives, successors and assigns, agree to release, hold harmless, defend and indemnify, SBP, SBP and each of their respective parent and affiliate companies, subsidiaries, agents, representatives, distributors and advertising and promotion agencies, successors and assigns, as well as the officers, directors, employees, representatives and agents of each of the foregoing, from any and all liability, loss, damage, expenses, costs (including reasonable attorneys’ fees), or injury sustained in connection with such Sponsors’ or Schools’ participation in the Fundraiser. All taxes and other fees or costs associated with the contributions are solely the responsibility of the Schools and Sponsors and their corresponding representatives. (Depending upon total amounts earned, Schools may receive an IRS earnings form.) Contribution payments from SBP will not be made to any entity other than the corresponding School.
ARBITRATION: Any legal or equitable claim arising out of participation in the Fundraiser (a “Claim”) will be resolved only by binding arbitration. The arbitration will be conducted under the JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures (the “JAMS Streamlined Rules”). ARBITRATION MEANS THAT YOU WAIVE YOUR RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL. The interpretation and enforcement of these Terms and Conditions will be governed by the laws of the state where a participating School is located, except this paragraph will be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act. Neither SBP nor the School will be entitled to join or consolidate Claims in arbitration by or against other individual or entities, or arbitrate any Claim as a representative member of a class or in a private attorney general capacity. Accordingly, both SPB and School agree that the JAMS Class Action Procedures do not apply to arbitration of any Claim. If, however, the law of a School’s state would find this agreement to dispense with class arbitration procedures unenforceable, then this entire paragraph is unenforceable.
SPONSORSHIP CONTRIBUTIONS: Shown on the web page linked to below are: (i) the contributions Schools may expect to receive by allowing Sponsorships to be placed on their School website, (ii) corresponding ECC contributions, and (iii) SBP’s good-faith estimates on what one School family could earn for its School in a year by participating in the Fundraiser. All of these available Sponsorships have been approved by the related Sponsors. These Sponsorships will change from time to time, and such Sponsorship changes will not be deemed a change in these Terms and Conditions. Here is a link to the currently available Sponsorships and related contributions: . http://schoolfundcenter.com/sponsors/
IMPORTANT DEFINITIONS AND CONCEPTS:
When a School opts-out, its opt-out status will be recognized by SBP’s systems and any related offer will no longer be included in the Fundraiser with regard to the corresponding school. Should the school reverse an opt-out, the corresponding offer may be reactivated based on various conditions including but not limited to the availability of the offer.
See the section below, called “OPTING OUT” for more information about this option, and for a link for you to click to opt out of the Value Added Opportunity.
We also describe additional rights that California users have under the California “Shine the Light” law.
