This Is A Contract
IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THESE TERMS THEN YOU MAY NOT ACCESS OR USE THE SERVICES. BY USING AND ACCESSING THE SERVICES (OTHER THAN TO REVIEW THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THIS AGREEMENT), YOU AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THIS AGREEMENT, AS THE SAME MAY BE AMENDED FROM TIME TO TIME IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE TERMS BELOW. YOU SHOULD READ THIS AGREEMENT CAREFULLY BEFORE USING OR ACCESSING THE SERVICES, BECAUSE THIS AGREEMENT AFFECTS YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS AND OBLIGATIONS.

Tendr’s Services bring together givers and recipients of monetary gifts in a convenient online platform. If you would like to become a Recipient or Giver, click HERE to complete the registration process and to review the additional terms and conditions, if any, that will apply to you. Once you become a Recipient or Giver, those additional terms will take precedence over these Terms of Service, to the extent of any inconsistency.
If you choose to register, you agree to provide us with accurate, complete registration information. It is your responsibility to inform us of any changes to that information by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Each registration is for a single user only. We do not permit (a) any other person to access Recipient-only or Giver-only sections of the Site under your name, or (b) access the Services through a single name being made available to multiple users on a network. You are responsible for preventing such unauthorized use.
Third Party Payments
We provide one or more links to third-party sites that process transactions between Givers and Recipients, or their representatives. You acknowledge and agree that we do not control these transactions and that the transmission of gifts is solely between Giver and Recipient, by means of our third-party payment processor. When a Giver’s gift has been made, the Giver agrees that the amount of the gift may be deducted from the Giver’s credit card and reserved or secured until the Recipient withdraws the funds. All Givers and Recipients must comply with all terms and conditions imposed by our payment processor, in addition to these Terms of Service. Among these terms and conditions are a gifting limit of $8000 per day per user, and a requirement that all Recipients be located in the United States.

WHERE ANY JURISDICTIONS LIMIT OR DO NOT ALLOW THE DISCLAIMER OF IMPLIED OR OTHER WARRANTIES AS SET FORTH ABOVE IN A PARTICULAR CIRCUMSTANCE, THEN TENDR SHALL BE ENTITLED TO THE BENEFIT OF SUCH DISCLAIMERS AND LIMITATIONS TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY SUCH APPLICABLE LAW IN SUCH PARTICULAR CIRCUMSTANCE.
Limitation of Liability
YOUR SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY FOR ANY DISPUTE WITH TENDR IS TO DISCONTINUE YOUR USE OF THE SERVICES. TENDR SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY LOSS, INJURY, CLAIM, LIABILITY, OR DAMAGE OF ANY KIND RESULTING FROM YOUR USE OF THE SERVICES OR THE CONTENT, INCLUDING ANY SPECIAL, DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES OF ANY KIND WHATSOEVER (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ATTORNEYS’ FEES) IN ANY WAY DUE TO, RESULTING FROM, OR ARISING IN CONNECTION WITH THE USE OF OR INABILITY TO USE THE SERVICES OR THEIR CONTENT. TO THE EXTENT THIS LIMITATION ON LIABILITY IS PROHIBITED OR FAILS OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE, TENDR’S SOLE OBLIGATION TO YOU FOR DAMAGES SHALL BE LIMITED TO THE AMOUNT PAID BY YOU UNDER THIS AGREEMENT OR $100.00, WHICHEVER IS LESS. FURTHER, TENDR SHALL NOT BE LIABLE IN ANY INSTANCE WHATSOEVER FOR ACTIONS BY ANY THIRD PARTY INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ADVERTISMENTS AND SOLICITATIONS, WHICH HAVE NOT BEEN EXPRESSLY AUTHORIZED BY TENDR.
THE LIMITATIONS SET FORTH HEREIN ARE FUNDAMENTAL ELEMENTS OF THE BASIS OF THE BARGAIN BETWEEN YOU AND TENDR. TENDR WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO PROVIDE YOU WITH SERVICES WITHOUT SUCH LIMITATIONS.
You are solely liable for any User Submissions, content, messages or other information you upload to or make available through the Services. You agree to indemnify, defend and hold harmless Tendr from any third party claim, action, demand, loss or damages (including attorney’s fees and costs) arising out of or relating to (a) your violation of any term of these Terms of Service, (b) your use of or access to the Services, (c) your User Submissions, (d) any improper, unauthorized or illegal uses of your profile, and (e) your violation of any rights of a third party, including without limitation any property or privacy right.
Third Party Rights
The provisions of these Terms of Service (e.g., Disclaimer, Limitation of Liability and Indemnification) are for the benefit of Tendr and its affiliates, officers, directors, employees, agents, representatives, vendors, licensors, licensees, suppliers, and any third party information- or service providers to the Services. Each of these individuals or entities shall have the right to assert and enforce those provisions directly against you on his, her or its own behalf.
Remedies for Violations
We reserve the right to seek all remedies available at law and in equity for violations of these Terms of Service, including, but not limited to, the right to block access to the Services and their features from a particular Internet address or mobile phone number.
Dispute Resolution by Arbitration / No Class Action
You understand and agree that all claims, disputes or controversies between you and Tendr, or its affiliates, or their respective directors, officers, employees, representatives and agents, arising under or related to this Agreement the Services, the content, or the use or operation of the Services, including tort and contract claims, claims based upon any federal, state or local statute, law, order, ordinance or regulation, and the issue of arbitrability, shall be resolved by final and binding arbitration before the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), in accordance with the rules of the AAA.
IT IS IMPORTANT THAT YOU READ THIS ARBITRATION CLAUSE. IT PROVIDES THAT YOU MAY BE REQUIRED TO SETTLE ANY CLAIM OR DISPUTE THROUGH ARBITRATION, EVEN IF YOU WOULD PREFER TO LITIGATE THE CLAIM IN COURT. YOU SHOULD CONSULT LEGAL COUNSEL TO DETERMINE WHETHER THIS ARBITRATION CLAUSE IS APPROPRIATE FOR YOU. YOU CAN OPT OUT OF THE ARBITRATION BY FOLLOWING THE INSTRUCTIONS IN THE LAST PARAGRAPH OF THIS ARBITRATION CLAUSE. YOU UNDERSTAND THAT UNLESS YOU EXERCISE THE RIGHT TO OPT-OUT OF ARBITRATION IN THE MANNER DESCRIBED BELOW, YOU AGREE THAT ANY DISPUTE WILL BE RESOLVED BY BINDING ARBITRATION. ARBITRATION REPLACES THE RIGHT TO GO TO COURT, INCLUDING THE RIGHT TO HAVE A JURY, TO ENGAGE IN DISCOVERY (EXCEPT AS MAY BE PROVIDED IN THE ARBITRATION RULES), AND TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION OR SIMILAR PROCEEDING. IN ARBITRATION, A DISPUTE IS RESOLVED BY AN ARBITRATOR INSTEAD OF A JUDGE OR JURY. ARBITRATION PROCEDURES ARE SIMPLER AND MORE LIMITED THAN COURT PROCEDURES. YOU ALSO AGREE ANY ARBITRATION WILL BE LIMITED TO THE DISPUTE BETWEEN YOURSELF AND TENDR AND WILL NOT BE PART OF A CLASS-WIDE OR CONSOLIDATED ARBITRATION PROCEEDING. RIGHT TO OPT OUT: If you do not wish to be bound by this arbitration clause, you must notify Tendr in writing within sixty (60) days after such time as you become bound by this Agreement as set forth above in the section titled “This Is a Contract”, or your rejection of arbitration will not be effective. You must send your request to us. Your request must include your telephone number(s) and a clear statement of your intent to opt out, such as “I reject the arbitration clause stated in the Terms of Service Agreement.”
EVEN IF APPLICABLE LAW PERMITS CLASS ACTIONS OR CLASS ARBITRATIONS, THE DISPUTE RESOLUTION PROCEDURE SPECIFIED ABOVE APPLIES AND, WE AND YOU EACH WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO PURSUE DISPUTES ON A CLASSWIDE BASIS; THAT IS, TO EITHER JOIN A CLAIM WITH THE CLAIM OF ANY OTHER PERSON OR ENTITY, OR ASSERT A CLAIM IN A REPRESENTATIVE CAPACITY ON BEHALF OF ANYONE ELSE IN ANY LAWSUIT, ARBITRATION OR OTHER PROCEEDING.
Modifications to Terms of Service
We reserve the right to change these Terms of Service at any time. Updated versions of the Terms of Service will appear on the Services and are effective immediately. You are responsible for regularly reviewing the Terms of Service. Continued use of the Services after any such changes constitutes your consent to such changes.
Governing Law This Agreement is governed by the laws of New York, U.S.A., without regard to the conflicts of laws principles thereof.
This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement of the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof, and supersedes any and all other prior written or oral agreements between Tendr and you regarding such subject matter. For the avoidance of doubt, to the extent that you are subject to additional terms as a Recipient or Giver, the terms of that agreement shall also be binding on you and shall take precedence in the event of any inconsistency.
The invalidity or unenforceability of any provision of these Terms & Conditions shall not for those reasons alone affect the validity or enforceability of any other provision of these Terms & Conditions.
You have the right to discontinue your use of the Services any time upon notice to Tendr, and Tendr has the unlimited right to terminate or limit your access to the Services at any time and for any reason and without notice. In the event of termination, you are no longer authorized to access or use the Services. The restrictions imposed on you with respect to content acquired from the Services, and the disclaimers, limitations of liabilities and dispute resolution provisions set forth in these Terms of Service, shall survive. In any event, all of Tendr’s rights under this Agreement (and to the extent applicable, all of the rights under this Agreement of its affiliates, its and its affiliates’ directors, officers, employees, representatives and agents, licensees and licensors) shall survive any termination of this Agreement.
No Construction Against Drafter
The terms of this Agreement shall not be construed against Tendr by virtue of its having drafted them.
No Implied Third Party Beneficiaries

Shortened Statute of Limitations
ANY CAUSE OF ACTION ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THE SERVICES, OR THE SUBJECT MATTER OF THIS AGREEMENT MUST BE COMMENCED WITHIN ONE (1) YEAR AFTER THE CAUSE OF ACTION ACCRUES. OTHERWISE, SUCH CAUSE OF ACTION IS PERMANENTLY BARRED.
You and Tendr are independent contractors, and nothing in this Agreement creates a partnership, employment relationship or agency.
No Assignments or Transfers
You may not assign this Agreement or your rights and obligations hereunder, in whole or in part, to any third party without Tendr’s prior written consent (in its sole discretion), and any attempt by you to do so in violation hereof will be void and ineffective. Tendr and its affiliates may assign their respective rights and obligations under this Agreement (in whole or in part) without your consent or notice to you.
