Under no circumstances are we liable or responsible for user content shown on the Fundervine.com platform.
We are not party, or involved in the pledge fulfilment process and should a query be raised on the delivery of the pledge rewards this should be taken up with the project owner directly. If there are any disputes with regards to transactions and offers solicited on the Fundervine.com platform this is to be treated as a case external to Fundervine.com.

Fundervine.com will endeavour to pass control of the funds of a project that has reached target funding within an allotted timeframe, to the Project Owner in a timely manner. In order to do this, the Project Owner will be required to give Fundervine.com a working bank account’s details that can be linked to a Fundervine.com Paypal account, or a Paypal account. Should the Project Owner wish to receive the funds via Paypal there may be an additional charge of up to 3% taken by Paypal.

You the user acknowledge that it is not the role of Fundervine.com to act as mediator, negotiator or even communicator between a project owner and a backer and as such absolve Fundervine.com of any responsibility with regards to the pledge reward process.
In the event of a dispute, you release Fundervine.com, its officers, employees, agents 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 our service.

You the user acknowledge that it is not the role of Fundervine.com to ensure the safe delivery of Project Rewards and in the case of a dispute between a crowd funder and the project owner, you absolve Fundervine.com of any responsibility with regards to the project reward process. Fundervine.com advise project owners to ensure delivery for pledge rewards is made within 30 days using either Royal Mail (recorded delivery) or a reputable courier.

Fundervine.com makes no guarantees regarding the performance of Paypal or any payments processing system in place for fundraising on the Fundervine.com site. Due to the failure of some credit and debit cards, Fundervine.com cannot guarantee the full receipt of a pledge, nor act as a guarantor for the funding to reach the full amount. If the funding total exceeds the target amount designated by the project specification, the additional funds will be paid to the Project Owners on satisfactory completion of the project (i.e fulfilment of rewards to crowd funders).

If a project is unsuccessful in reaching the full target funding, then Fundervine.com will issue refunds to all backers of the project. The amount refunded will be the initial pledge total minus the payment processor refund fees that can vary from 50p for a £1 pledge, to 3% of the total amount pledged. It is not the responsibility of Fundervine.com or the Fundervine.com designated payment processor to issue a refund for the full amount pledged.
