Projects: Fundraising and Commerce

Ruff.in is a platform where Project Owners run campaigns to fund their projects by offering rewards to raise money from Patrons (other members of Ruff.in). By contributing to or by creating a fundraising campaign, you agree to be bound by this entire Agreement, including the following terms:

Members/ Patrons agree to use their valid net banking or debit cards/credit cards for making monetary contributions towards the campaigns. Their cards/net banking accounts would be debited with the amount they commit for the Campaign/Project.

Members/ Patrons authorise Ruff.in and its payment gateway partners to charge their cards/banking accounts for an amount equal to the amount pledged for a Campaign/Project.

Members/ Patrons can make multiple contributions to the same Campaign/Project. The sum of all their contributions would be added up to determine the reward they would be eligible for from the Project Owner. However, in case a Patron wishes to get multiple rewards that correspond to a lower contribution then he/she should directly get in touch with the project owner with regard to this. For example if for a contribution of Rs. 1000 a project owner promises to give a t-shirt and a patron/contributor gives Rs. 5000 and he wishes to get 5 t-shirts instead of one gift corresponding to the Rs. 5000 reward mentioned by the project owner, then the patron/contributor should contact the project owner; the decision of the Project Owner shall be final and binding upon the Patron.

Members/ Patrons must remember that contributions once made cannot be cancelled. For refunds and payment related issues, please see the section below under Fees, Payments and Refunds.

If a Project Owner has a live project campaign in funding stage on Ruff.in, he / she cannot start a similar crowdfunding project, on any other crowdfunding website in India. This will lead to their project being closed immedeately and also a penalty will be charged on the Project Owner for such actions.

The Estimated Delivery Date listed on each reward is not a promise to fulfill by that date, but is merely an estimate of when the Project Owner hopes to fulfill his commitment about project completion and delivering the rewards.

Project Owners agree to make a good faith attempt to fulfill each reward by its Estimated Delivery Date.

For all campaigns, Ruff.in gives to the Project Owner each Patron’s Name and amount contributed. For successful campaigns, Ruff.in additionally gives to the Project Owner each Patron’s name and email ID for further contacting them with regard to the rewards.

For some rewards, the Project Owner needs further information from Patrons/Members, such as a mailing address or t-shirt size or choice of colour and shape, to enable the Project Owner to deliver the rewards. The Project Owner shall request the information at some point after the fundraising campaign is successful. To receive the reward, Patrons agree to provide the requested information to the Project Owner.

Ruff.in does not offer refunds once a project has been able to successfully reach its milestone for fund raising. A Project Owner is not required to grant a Patron’s request for a refund unless the Project Owner is unable to fulfill the reward committed and decides to refund the amount raised to the respective patrons. The Project Owners would be required to carry out such a refund and Ruff.in would not be responsible for enabling such a refund.

Project Owners are required to fulfill all rewards of their successful fundraising campaigns or refund any Patron/Contributor whose reward they do not or cannot fulfill.

Project Owners may cancel or refund a Patron’s contribution at any time and for any reason post the campaign closure on Ruff.in. If they do so, they are not required to fulfill the reward committed earlier. Such a refund would be done by the Project owner himself/herself directly to the Patrons and Ruff.in is in no way responsible for facilitating the same. However a Project owner is not allowed to cancel a campaign before the end date if any Patron has contributed towards the project.

Project Owners should not take any action in the hope that their full targeted amount would be raised on Ruff.in until they have the ability to withdraw and use the funds for their Project.

The Project funds collected shall be subject to Ruff.in and its payment gateway partner’s fees before transmitting the funds to the Project Owner. The net deductions for projects that reach full target set would be 10%. For those who fail to reach their target amount till the funding end date, please see the possible options mentioned below in the section Fees, Payments and Refunds.

Ruff.in reserves the right to cancel a Project at any time and for any reason and return the money to the Patrons if it finds any discrepancy with the claims of the Project Owner at any stage before disbursing the collection to the Project Owner.

Ruff.in reserves the right to reject, cancel, interrupt, remove, or suspend a Project Campaign at any time and for any reason. Ruff.in is not liable for any damages as a result of any cancelation. Ruff.in is not liable for any damages or loss incurred related to rewards or any other use of the Service. All dealings are solely between Registered Members and Users. Ruff.in is under no obligation to become involved in disputes between any Members/Users, or between Members/Users and Patrons and any third party. This includes, but is not limited to, delivery of goods and services, and any other terms, conditions, warranties, or representations associated with campaigns on the Site. Ruff.in does not oversee the performance or punctuality of projects. Ruff.in does not endorse any Member/User submissions either. You release Ruff.in and Eduksha India LLP, its partners, officers, employees, agents, consultants and successors in rights from claims, damages, and demands of every kind, known or unknown, suspected or unsuspected, disclosed or undisclosed, arising out of or in any way related to such disputes and the Service.

Fees, Payments and Refunds

Joining Ruff.in is free. However, raising funds for your projects is upon payment of our fees as provided hereunder. Ruff also provides services for project campaign consulting and digital marketing for a fees that is disclosed once the Project Owner shares the project details, target funding amount and other information that is required to arrive at the fee amount.

Once a Project Owner sets his Funding target for a project and his project goes live, the fund raising process starts. If by the project end date the project owner is able to raise the full targeted fund or more than that, the project campaign closes and Ruff.in would remit the funds to the Project owner's bank account after deducting 10% as payment gateway charges and Ruff administrative costs.

If however by the last date of the fund raising campaign the full targeted amount is not raised, the project owner has the following 3 options:
Project owner may choose to end the campaign and take whatever amount he has raised, less 15% as charges (payment gateway charges and Ruff charges), and promises to fulfil the rewards as committed to the Patrons at the start of the fund raising campaign.

Project owner may choose to extent the campaign by another 15 - 20 days in order to reach to a larger audience and then takes whatever funds are raised at the end of the extended funding period after deduction of the 15% fees as mentioned in option 1 above if the full target is not reached and 10% if full target is reached during this extended period.

Project owner feels he would not be able to fulfil his commitment for the project completion and rewards with the insufficient funds raised and hence asks for refunding the amounts contributed to the respective patrons. For such scenario, Project Owner must define the 'Minimum Amount' required, for fulfilling the promises made in the project campaign, before the project goes live. "Minimum Amount" here is the amount that a Project Owner will want to take and if anything more than or equal to that amount is raised, Project Owner will not opt for a refund and fulfill all the promises of project execution and rewards to Patrons as per Point 1 above. The Project Owner must disclose and share the "Minimum Amount" before the project campaign goes live on Ruff.in. Ruff.in will charge the Project Owner 5% of this amount as a payment gateway charge that will be levied on returning these funds to the respective Patrons. Project Owners must transfer this amount to Ruff.in before their project is made live. Patrons would be refunded the full amounts they contributed in such a scenario.

Though the above options are given to all the project owners, the final decision will lie with the Ruff admin.

In addition to the above fees, a 5% extra charge will be levied on every international contribution that is received from your international Patrons to account for the exchange rate difference that arises.

Funds contributed by Patrons are collected by CC Avenue (Avenues India Ltd) for Indian Patrons and by PayPal for International Patrons, who are our payment gateway service providers. Ruff.in is not responsible for the performance of CC Avenue (Avenues India Ltd) and PayPal. Moreover, the credit/debit card or internet banking details is collected by the Payment gateway service provider and Ruff.in is in no way responsible for any misuse of the data as it does not get recorded in our database at any stage. For users in India who choose to pay using the Cash facility, we have tie-up with Gharpay who are our collection partner.

Rewards

Ruff.in does not guarantee the delivery of the rewards promised by the Project owners. However, we try our best to include as much of legal element into it as possible by including a personal declaration which needs to be accepted by the Project Owner about a legal promise to honour the commitment made for the rewards. If for some reason the rewards cannot be delivered as promised, then the Project Owner is liable to refund the amounts to the Patrons within a reasonable time period. The Patrons can take any legal action against the Project Owners if they feel the Project Owner has not kept his promise. Ruff.in and its associates and directors and parent, Eduksha India LLP or its partners shall in no way be party to any such legal matters and you agree to not involve Ruff.in in such matters.
