SERVICES PROVIDED BY CLASSWISH

Educators (as defined below) can create wish lists ("Wish Lists") for educational resources. To create a Wish List, Educators must agree that they, their Wish List, and the use of the requested materials comply with the ClassWish Eligibility Requirements.

Donors contributing towards School Needs can specify their preference that their donation be applied towards the purchase of particular categories of items. However, schools may seek approval from ClassWish to use the funds for other types of resources, which ClassWish may grant at its option.

Donors can also contribute towards “Teacher Needs” (a term used on the website to indicate any educator).

Educators who have received contributions to their ClassWish accounts may submit a request ("Request") as set forth at www.ClassWish-Vendors.org for ClassWish to purchase such items. Educators must confirm that their Request, and the use of the requested materials comply with the ClassWish Eligibility Requirements.

ClassWish may review Requests to ensure that they meet the Eligibility Requirements before purchasing and arranging for the shipment of requested items to the Educator's school. ClassWish will attempt to honor the wishes of Educators with respect to the use of funds donated towards their Wish Lists; however, ClassWish reserves the right to: (1) exclude items from Wish Lists and Requests, and delay or refuse to purchase items requested by Educators that do not meet the ClassWish Eligibility Requirements; and (2) require the return of items that do not meet or are not used in accordance with the ClassWish Eligibility Requirements, in each case in ClassWish’s sole discretion.

In order to maintain transparency and accountability, ClassWish will display all items purchased pursuant to Requests and sent to Educators’ schools on the Website. In the event that an item purchased by ClassWish is returned, it will be removed from display on the Website.

In the event an Educator transfers to another school or ceases to act as an Educator, ClassWish may apply any remaining funds contributed towards such Educator’s Wish Lists to purchase items on other Wish Lists in the same school.

ClassWish may charge various transaction fees to cover credit card expenses, shipping and handling, order processing, operating expenses, and other expenses, and those fees may change from time to time. All such fees shall be disclosed in updates to this ClassWish User Agreement. The transaction fee is currently 2.2% of the donation amount plus 30 cents, which is the amount ClassWish incurs in third-party fees to PayPal. ClassWish does not currently charge any fees when an Educator requests that ClassWish purchase items, and ClassWish deducts from the Educator account the amount the educator sees on the vendor website, as further described at www.ClassWish-Vendors.org.

Currently ClassWish distributes funds to Educators only in two circumstances:
1. for the cost of a field trip
2. to FIRST Robotics teams.

In the event ClassWish distributes funds to an Educator, including a FIRST Robotics team, then it charges a fee of 4.9%. For instance, if a FIRST Robotics team requests a disbursal of $100 from its wish list account, ClassWish shall charge $4.90 and transmit $95.10 to the team. Instructions on how a FIRST team can withdraw funds appear at http://team-fundraising.weebly.com/withdrawing-funds.html.


SPECIAL PROVISIONS FOR EDUCATORS

Thank you for your interest in registering on ClassWish.org. By clicking the "I Agree" button during the process to sign up, the following additional terms of the User Agreement apply to those users who sign up for an Educator account and/or post a Wish List on the Website:

• Educator Representations
By registering on this Website, you represent and warrant that:

1. You are (i) the leader of a FIRST Robotics team, or you are (ii) a teacher, student teacher, substitute teacher, part-time after school teacher, staff developers, librarian, guidance counselor, school nurse, coach, principal, administrator, other employee directly serving students in an educational capacity, student teacher working with students in a school at least eight hours per week, or officer acting on behalf of a school Parent Teacher Association unit recognized by the National Parent Teacher Association or on behalf of another parent teacher organization (collectively, “Educators”) of (a) an accredited K-12, public, magnet or charter school, or (b) private or parochial school that is exempt from federal income tax under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, or (iii) a public library, or (iv) a museum or a nonprofit that is exempt from federal income tax under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, and that is in the United States (in accordance with our ClassWish Eligibility Requirements), and you are registering with ClassWish as an Educator at such organization (such FIRST team, school, public library, museum or nonprofit being referred to herein as an “Eligible Organization”);

2. The Wish Lists and Requests you create are solely for your Eligible Organization in accordance with the ClassWish Eligibility Requirements, and not for your or anyone else’s personal use.

• Educator Responsibilities

1. If you wish to have more than one Wish List (for instance, you may have a Wish List for your classroom needs and another for your role as faculty advisor for the chess club), you must register a separate Educator account for each Wish List, and must use separate email addresses for each.

2. You agree that any photographs, videos, graphics, messages and/or thank-you notes you provide will not contain any personal information that will identify any student.

• Your Responsibilities Should Contributions be Made to Your Wish List
1. If contributions are made to your Wish List and you submit a Request through ClassWish, you represent and warrant that all items you request will be used by students associated with your Eligible Organization in accordance with the ClassWish Eligibility Requirements, and not for your or anyone else’s personal use.

2. You agree not to post photographs of any child on the Website unless you have collected a Parental Consent Form as provided by ClassWish, signed by his or her parent or legal guardian. Only one Parental Consent Form per student, per school year, per Educator need be collected. You agree to provide copies of Parental Consent Forms to ClassWish, upon request.

3. You agree that ClassWish may display on the Website all supplies requested and provided through ClassWish, and may display any photographs, videos, graphics, messages and/or thank-you notes you submit.

ClassWish reserves the right to: (1) exclude Educators or Eligible Organizations from use of the Website; (2) terminate Educator accounts or associated Wish Lists or Requests; (3) remove or edit content; or (4) otherwise refuse Website service or access, in each case in ClassWish's sole discretion.


SPECIAL PROVISIONS FOR FIRST ROBOTICS LEADERS

If you are the leader of a FIRST Robotics team and create a wish list account with ClassWish, you agree to notify us when a different leader assumes control of the team. Upon such change in leadership, we will transfer control of the account to the new leader. ClassWish may rely on FIRST, its districts, or its regional directors in determining eligibility and leadership of FIRST teams.


PRODUCTS: DESCRIPTIONS, PRICING AND RETURN POLICY

The prices of requested items displayed on the Website are generally the retail or list prices provided by our vendors and may change from time to time. Any sales tax amounts or shipping fees displayed on the Website are estimated amounts and may be adjusted after final figures are confirmed.

ClassWish will attempt to use its anticipated large volume to negotiate with vendors discounts, commissions, and/or rebates off of the prices displayed on the Website. The amount by which donations received, including fees, exceeds the cost of the item to ClassWish (net of any discounts, commissions and rebates) may be used by ClassWish to cover its operating expenses (including capital costs), any unmet shipping and handling fees or sales tax, and for other educational purposes.

Returns and exchanges of items received through ClassWish will be subject to our Return Policy.

All donations made through the Website are non-refundable. However, there are circumstances in which a credit charge card may be reversed, such as in the case of a stolen card. In the event a donation that has been credited to a Wish List is reversed, the funds will be deducted from that Wish List account. In the event that ClassWish has already used the funds to purchase items which have been sent to an Educator, that Educator shall return the items if ClassWish requests, at the expense of ClassWish.

COMMENTS, COMMUNICATIONS, AND CONTENT

ClassWish may offer users the opportunity to (a) post comments and other content, (b) send e-cards, emails, electronic messages, and other communications, and (c) submit suggestions, ideas, comments, questions, or other information.

If you do post content or submit material on the Website ("Your Content"), you grant ClassWish and its affiliates a nonexclusive, royalty-free, perpetual, irrevocable, and fully sub-licensable right to use, reproduce, modify, adapt, publish, translate, create derivative works from, distribute, and display Your Content throughout the world in any media; and further, you grant ClassWish and its affiliates and sub-licensees the right to use the name that you submit in connection with Your Content, if they choose.

You represent and warrant that you own Your Content or otherwise have the right to license Your Content to ClassWish; that Your Content is accurate; that use of Your Content does not violate this User Agreement and will not cause injury to any person or entity.

OUR POLICIES

Each of these policies can be accessed from this User Agreement, and each of these policies is incorporated by reference herein so that by agreeing to the Terms of Use, you hereby agree to the following policies:
• PRIVACY POLICY
• COPYRIGHT COMPLAINT POLICY


PRIVACY POLICY

ClassWish Inc. ("ClassWish") takes your privacy seriously. Please read the following to learn more about our privacy policy.

What This Privacy Policy Covers

This policy covers how ClassWish treats personal information that ClassWish collects and receives, including information related to your past use of ClassWish products and services. Personal information is information about you that is personally identifiable like your name, address, email address, or phone number, and that is not otherwise publicly available.

This policy does not apply to the practices of companies or organizations that ClassWish Inc. does not own or control or to people that ClassWish Inc. does not employ or manage. This policy does, however, apply to WellGood Classrooms, LLC, which performs certain consulting services for the Website.

In addition, should you consent to release your personal information to any third party, including the schools and classrooms to which you make donations, the privacy policy of ClassWish will not apply; such third parties have their own privacy policies.

ClassWish does not currently participate in the Safe Harbor program developed by the U.S. Department of Commerce and the European Union, but ClassWish may participate in such program in the future.


Information Collection and Use

ClassWish may collect personal information when you register with ClassWish, when you make a donation, or when you visit Website pages or the pages of certain ClassWish partners or affiliates. ClassWish may combine information about you that we have with information we obtain from other nonprofit organizations, or from WellGood Classrooms, LLC, which administers certain aspects of the Website.

When you register with ClassWish we ask for certain personal information about you. Accordingly, once you register with ClassWish and log in to our services, you are not anonymous to us.

ClassWish may collect information about your charitable donations, favored schools or classrooms and favored donation items. This list of personal information that may be collected about you on the Website is by no means exhaustive.

ClassWish uses any collected personal information for the following general purposes: to help customize content you see, fulfill your requests for products and services, improve our services, contact you, or conduct research. ClassWish may also use this information, on an aggregated and anonymous reporting basis, for the benefit of other charitable organizations or governmental agencies, or our vendors.

Upon request, ClassWish will use reasonable efforts to allow users to update or correct personal information previously submitted to the extent such activities will not compromise privacy or security interests. Also, upon a user's request, ClassWish will use commercially reasonable efforts to functionally delete the user and his or her personal information from its database; however, it may be impossible to delete a user's entry without some residual information being retained by ClassWish because of the nature in which backups of data are maintained.

A cookie is a small piece of data that is sent to your browser from a web server and stored on your computer's hard drive. Cookies store information about your use of a particular web site or service and are typically used to make services more convenient and personalized. Most cookies are "session cookies," which are automatically deleted whenever you leave a web site, although some cookies remain on your computer until you remove them. As is standard practice on many websites, our Website may use cookies and other technologies to help us understand which parts of our Website are the most popular, where our visitors are going, and how much time they spend there. We may also use cookies to see to what extent our visitors are choosing to consider the purchase of products and services of our partners. We may also use cookies to study traffic patterns on our Website and to personalize information and services that we provide to you on our Website.


Do You Share Information with Third Parties?

Except as set forth in this privacy policy, ClassWish does not rent, sell, or share personal information about you with other people, companies or other nonprofit organizations, unless you specifically provide your permission to ClassWish. In the event you consent to provide your personal information to third parties in connection with a donation, such as teachers, schools and classrooms, such information shall be shared with such parties.

ClassWish may disclose personal information about individual users to third parties who provide services to ClassWish and who agree to maintain the confidentiality of such information in accordance with this privacy policy. These third parties may provide a variety of services to ClassWish, including, without limitation, helping us process information and credit card payments, fulfilling any orders placed on the Website, hosting our Website, helping create new promotions for ClassWish, and sending or coordinating the sending of communications to users. In situations where a user has supplied his or her information in connection with a question or request for information about a product or service offered by one of our partners, we may also send the information he or she has supplied to the partner that offers such products or services.

Our Website contains links to third party sites other than our own. Those sites may not follow the same privacy policies as ClassWish. Such links may be to advertisers, content providers, vendors or partners. These sites may send their own cookies to you, and may collect information and use it in a way inconsistent with ClassWish's privacy policy. ClassWish does not control the content that appears on these third party sites. Such sites may contain information that content providers independent of ClassWish have created, maintained, published, posted or otherwise made available. The use of any information or materials that you may access at these third party sites is purely voluntary. You should not rely on their contents without independent and thorough review of the accuracy, completeness, effectiveness, timeliness and correct sequencing. When you click via a link to such third party sites you should read the applicable privacy policy to determine how they will use any information they collect from you. These third party sites may also refer to specific commercial products, processes, or services by trade name, trademark, service mark, manufacturer or otherwise. Unless ClassWish has provided explicit authority, such references in no way indicate our endorsement, recommendation or preference.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, ClassWish will respond to subpoenas, court orders, or legal process, or to establish or exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims. We also believe it is necessary to share information in order to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, violations of ClassWish's User Agreement, or as otherwise required by law.

We may also transfer information about you if ClassWish is merged with, acquired by, under the fiscal sponsorship of or otherwise becomes a part of another organization.


What Security Precautions are Taken to Protect Personal Information?

This Website incorporates appropriate safeguards to protect the security, integrity, completeness, accuracy and privacy of the personal information we have collected, and we have put in place reasonable precautions to protect information from loss, misuse and alteration. Our security and privacy policies are periodically reviewed and enhanced as required and only authorized individuals have access to the information you provide us. Although we take appropriate measures to safeguard against unauthorized disclosures of information, we cannot assure you that personally identifiable information that we collect will never be disclosed in a manner that is inconsistent with this privacy policy. ClassWish uses a 128-bit security certificate for all credit card payments and will not store credit card numbers.

You hereby acknowledge that ClassWish is not responsible for any intercepted information sent via the Internet, and you hereby release us from any and all claims arising out of or related to the use of intercepted information in any unauthorized manner.


Changes to this Privacy Policy

By using the Website, you signify your agreement to the terms of this privacy policy. If you do not agree with these terms, you should not use this Website. ClassWish may modify this privacy policy at any time. If a material change is made to this privacy policy and/or the way we use our users' personally identifiable information, then we will post prominent notice of the nature of such change on the first page of the User Agreement or this privacy policy and also on our home page. You are responsible for reviewing this privacy policy periodically to ensure that you are aware of any changes to it. Your continued use of the site indicates your assent to any changes to this privacy policy.


Children

This website is not directed to children and ClassWish does not knowingly solicit information from any child under the age of 13. Should a child whom we know to be under 13 years of age send personal information to us, we will use that information only to respond directly to that child (or a parent or guardian) to inform him or her that we must have parental consent before receiving his or her personal information.

  • The activities for which I intend to use any items received through ClassWish are legal and fall within the standards of my state and/or local board or department of education, and the policies of my school or, in the case of FIRST Robotics team leaders, fall within the standards of FIRST Robotics;
  • All information I provide to ClassWish is accurate, and I will promptly update the information to keep it accurate;
  • Any Requests I submit and any funding or items I receive are solely for use in my classroom and/or school, or in the case of FIRST Robotics team leaders are solely for use by my FIRST team, and any items I request through ClassWish will not be for my or anyone else’s personal use;
  • I agree that any items provided to me by ClassWish shall become and remain the property of (i) the school to which ClassWish has them delivered, and I will not take such items to another school, or (ii) in the case of a FIRST Robotics team such items provided to me by ClassWish or purchased with funds provided to me by ClassWish shall become and remain the property of the FIRST Robotics team or, if such is dissolved, shall become the property of FIRST Robotics.
  • I commit to including in my Wish Lists and Requests only items that will benefit my students’ education, including extracurricular activities, and to use any items that I receive from ClassWish only for such purposes.
  • I agree that in the event that ClassWish determines that any items I received through ClassWish are not being used in accordance with these Eligibility Requirements, I will return such items to ClassWish at my expense. In the case of FIRST teams, ClassWish may rely on the determination of FIRST Robotics in this regard.
