Payment Policy

This policy represents a portion of the Service Agreement.

Last modified: August 8th, 2019


It is our policy to promote safe, secure, and lawful transactions. This payment policy describes how we process transactions.

Specifically, this policy describes the terms and conditions that apply to contributions made to the Progressive Party Organizing Fund (PPOF). You may not make contributions to PPOF unless you agree to abide by all of the terms and conditions in this policy.


Payment Processor

We use Stripe to process transactions. You may not do anything that violates their Service Agreement, or causes us to violate their Service Agreement.


Rules

You may only contribute to PPOF if: you are not a federal contractor; you are at least eighteen years old; you are a U.S. citizen or lawfully admitted permanent resident (i.e., green card holder); the contribution is made from your own funds, and funds are not being provided to you by another person or entity for the purpose of making the contribution; you are making the contribution with your own personal credit or debit card and not with a corporate or business credit or debit card or a card issued to another person; and, you are not contributing more than $5,000.00 USD per year


Monitoring and Enforcement

We monitor transactions. We may refuse, condition, or suspend any transaction that we believe: may violate this policy or other agreements you may have with us; are unauthorized, fraudulent, or illegal; or, expose you, us, or others to risk. If we suspect or know that you are making unauthorized, fraudulent, or illegal transactions, we may share any information related to such activity with the appropriate financial institution, regulatory authority, or law enforcement agency consistent with our legal obligations.


Cancellation Policy

For your convenience, we offer the ability to make a recurring payment using a stored payment method. When you sign up for a recurring payment, we will charge the amount you designated to your stored payment method once each month. We will never change the amount or frequency of your recurring payment. You may cancel future instances of a recurring payment at any time.


Refund Policy

We do everything we can to accommodate requests for refunds. We do our best to honor refunds requested for reasons such as input error, when you accidentally donate twice, or enter the wrong donation amount. We will not consider refunds for reasons such as a change in political or personal opinion. We reserve the right to refuse a refund request for these or other reasons.

All refunds issued by us will be credited back to the credit or debit used to make the contribution.


Campaign Finance Laws

Political contributions are governed by campaign finance laws. We make our best efforts to ensure that all transactions are in accordance with these laws. Nonetheless, you have final and full liability and responsibility for ensuring your own compliance, including, but not limited to, filing any regulatory or tax reports.
