Terms and conditions for donation payments
 
The Open and Affirming Coalition of the United Church of Christ (referred to as us or we, or The Coalition) is a Not-for-profit organization (5o1c3). We operate the website www.openandaffirming.org (the Website). These are the Terms and Conditions which govern each use you make of the donation payment services provided through the Website.
 
These Terms and Conditions apply separately to each single donation that you make. Except as provided for in section 6, ‘Recurring Donations’, and unless specified by you, they do not form a contract allowing for future or successive transactions to be set up. By confirming on the Website that you wish to donate you agree to be bound by these Terms and Conditions for that donation.
 
(1) The donation services
 
We will use your donation at our discretion but within our stated charitable objectives.
 
All payments through the Website are to be made by payment card. We also accept donations by check. Checks can be made payable to The Coalition and sent to 700 Prospect Ave. Cleveland, Ohio 44115. Please note that we only accept payment by cash if handed to a The Coalition employee, from whom you will in return receive a receipt.
 
Once you confirm to us through the Website that you wish to proceed with your donation your transaction will be processed through our payment services provider, Click N Pledge. By confirming that you wish to proceed with your donation you authorize Click N Pledge to request funds from your credit or debit card provider.
 
(2) Tax deductions
 
You are responsible though your accountant for the determination of all tax-deductible amounts and kinds.
 
(3) Unauthorized card use
 
If you become aware of fraudulent use of your card, or if it is lost or stolen, you must notify your card provider.
 
(4) Information from you
 
Before we can process a donation, you must provide us with (i) your name, address and email address; and (ii) details of the credit or debit card that you wish to use to fund the donation. We will use this information to process your donation. It is your responsibility to ensure you have provided us with the correct information.
 
When you submit your payment details, these details will be transferred to our payment provider, Click N Pledge, and your payment data will be collected and processed securely by them. You should make sure that you are aware of CLICK N PLEDGE'S terms and conditions, which are different from our own, to ensure that you are comfortable with how they will process your personal data before you donate.
 
We won’t share your personal details with any other third party other than is set out in our Privacy Policy. Our Privacy Policy forms part of these Donation Payment Terms and Conditions and by agreeing to these Terms and Conditions you are also agreeing to the way we use and protect your personal information in line with our Privacy Policy.

(6) Recurring donations
 
These Donation Payment Terms and Conditions will only apply to successive donations made through the Website where you have set up a recurring donation. When you set up a recurring donation you will be scheduling a series of donations to be made on the day of the month that you choose until further notice. You agree that these Terms and Conditions will apply to each of the donations in that series.
