THIS WEBSITE PROVIDES USERS WITH ACCESS TO INFORMATION – INCLUDING INFORMATION RELATED TO CHARITIES - WORKS OF AUTHORSHIP, AND OTHER CONTENT (THE “CONTENT”), AS WELL AS TO A VARIETY OF SERVICES, INCLUDING THE ABILITY TO CONVERT LOYALTY/REWARD POINTS (“LOYALTY POINTS”) INTO CASH DONATIONS (THE "SERVICES").
Loyalty Points Retrieval, Processing and Disbursements; Acknowledgements; Rules for Disbursements
PointWorthy provides a technology platform that allows Loyalty Point holders of participating Loyalty Point providers to convert their Loyalty Points into cash that can then be converted into charitable donations. In order to use the platform located on the Website, you must first register, setup an account and provide certain personal information. PointWorthy reserves the right to refuse any request to setup an account for any reason or no reason. You understand, acknowledge and agree that in order for PointWorthy to convert your Loyalty Points into cash on your behalf, you will need to link your loyalty rewards account to a PointWorthy account, this action enables us to withdraw, process and disburse your Loyalty Points. By linking your account you hereby authorize us to make such requests on your behalf in order to execute and complete transactions.
You understand and acknowledge that PointWorthy is a processor of payments, processing your points into cash, and disbursing such cash as a donation. You further understand and acknowledge that your donation designated via the Website may be transferred to a Donor Advised Fund (DAF) operated by a third party. A DAF is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization and in such instances will be the initial recipient of your donation; the DAF will subsequently processes your donations and disburses the funds to charities based on your recommendations. Please also note that in such instance your Loyalty Points statement will list the name of the DAF as the recipient “merchant” of your donation, rather than your designated charity.
The DAF’s we work with may also provide charity verification services, charitable fund distribution from its DAF, and related administration and reporting services, as more specifically described below. Additionally, PointWorthy will provide users with the ability to search and select charities through the PointWorthy Website. While you will have the option of passing your personal information to your designated charity or remaining anonymous, you acknowledge and understand, however, that in instances in which a DAF is being used, PointWorthy will be required to provide the DAF with certain personal information that you provide us in order to allow the DAF to complete your transaction.
Please note that if you made a donation through Donate with Points, and the charity you designated is no longer accepting donations, is no longer recognized by the IRS as a public charity, is no longer in good standing with federal regulators, or is no longer eligible for Donate with Points, PointWorthy will cancel the portion of the donation made with Loyalty Points and credit back your Loyalty Points account. You will receive a donation cancellation email informing you of this event. If a donation or part of a donation was made using a PointWorthy e-Gift Card or a credit card, the portion of the donation funded by the PointWorthy e-Gift Card or the credit card is non-refundable. If you used a PointWorthy e-Gift Card or credit card to designate a charity that is no longer accepting donations, is no longer recognized by the IRS as a public charity, or is no longer in good standing with federal regulators, the DAF will distribute the donation to another charity that meets high public accountability standards and whose mission is similar to the designated charity that you originally selected.
