Indevue is in beta, and we are still sorting out all the details around our community terms of service, and we definitely want your input!
In the meantime, these will be our terms to start, and if you upload content or watch stuff your sense of honor (and of course legally) be bound by these when you agree to the terms of service.
Please message us with your comments and feedback @ firstname.lastname@example.org
The long form terms of service (below) is brain damage, so what we have here is the easy button.

The following rules are applicable to Project Owners who hereby agree to be bound by same, in addition to all other rules and regulations applicable to Users under these Terms of Service:
FOR THE AVOIDANCE OF DOUBT, AND NOTWITHSTANDING ANYTHING HEREIN TO THE CONTRARY, PROJECT OWNER (AND NOT COMPANY OR ANY THIRD PARTY PROCESSING COMPANY WITH WHOM COMPANY DEALS, INCLUDING STRIPE) SHALL BE SOLELY AND ULTIMATELY RESPONSIBLE IF ANY PLEDGE IS DISPUTED AT ANY TIME, INCLUDING AFTER FUNDS HAVE BEEN TRANSFERRED TO PROJECT OWNER.
IF A DISPUTE REGARDING A PLEDGE OCCURS AND DISPUTED FUNDS HAVE ALREADY BEEN TRANSFERRED TO PROJECT OWNER, COMPANY WILL WORK WITH ITS THIRD PARTY PROCESSING COMPANY TO SETTLE THE DISPUTE WITH THE CARD ISSUER. PROJECT OWNER WILL BE NOTIFIED THAT A DISPUTE HAS BEEN FILED, AND WILL REASONABLY ASSIST COMPANY BY PROVIDING EVIDENCE TO ATTEMPT TO RESOLVE THE DISPUTE IN PROJECT OWNER'S FAVOR. DURING THE TIME WHEN ANY DISPUTE IS ONGOING, PROJECT OWNER AGREES NOT TO USE OR TRANSFER ANY OF THE FUNDS IN DISPUTE. IF THE SUPPORTER'S DISPUTE IS FOUND VALID (WHICH MAY TAKE UP TO 60 DAYS OR LONGER), PROJECT OWNER SHALL BE REQUIRED TO RETURN THE DISPUTED FUNDS TO COMPANY IMMEDIATELY UPON REQUEST FOR SAME; FAILURE TO DO SO SHALL RESULT IN INTEREST BEING CHARGED AND DUE FROM PROJECT OWNER TO COMPANY IN THE AMOUNT OF 1% PER MONTH, COMPOUNDED MONTHLY, UNTIL THE ENTIRE AMOUNT DUE IS RETURNED TO COMPANY.
"indevue" IS NOT A GUARANTOR OF ANY PLEDGES MADE, AND SHALL NOT BE LIABLE OR HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY FAILURE BY A SUPPORTER TO HONOR A PLEDGE, REGARDLESS OF WHEN SUCH FAILURE OCCURS. IF SUCH A FAILURE OCCURS, PROJECT OWNER'S SOLE RECOURSE SHALL BE AGAINST THE SUPPORTER THAT FAILED TO HONOR SUCH SUPPORTER'S PLEDGE.
PROJECT OWNERS SHALL BE REQUIRED TO PROVIDE A VALID CREDIT CARD AT THE TIME OF STARTING A PROJECT, WITH AN ADEQUATE LIMIT TO COVER ANY FAILURE BY PROJECT OWNER TO TIMELY REPAY ANY DISPUTED FUNDS AS PROVIDED FOR HEREINABOVE, AND COMPANY IS HEREBY AUTHORIZED TO CHARGE SUCH CREDIT CARD IN ORDER TO BE REIMBURSED ANY SUCH DISPUTED AMOUNTS.
Contributions come in three categories:
A SUPPORTER UNDERSTANDS AND AGREES THAT IT HAS A LEGAL OBLIGATION TO MAKE GOOD ON A PLEDGE, IN A TIMELY MANNER, IF AND WHEN A CAMPAIGN IS SUCCESSFUL; FAILURE TO DO SO MAY RESULT IN LEGAL ACTION AGAINST SUCH SUPPORTER BY THE PROJECT OWNER.
Payment processing services for Project Owners on "indevue" are provided by Stripe and are subject to the Stripe Connected Account Agreement, which includes the Stripe Terms of Service (collectively, the "Stripe Services Agreement"). By agreeing to these Terms of Service or continuing to be a Supporter on the Site, you agree to be bound by the Stripe Services Agreement, as the same may be modified by Stripe from time to time; provided, however, that this Agreement shall govern if there is any discrepancy between this Agreement and the Stripe Services Agreement. Supporter agrees that, after a cash pledge is made, such Supporter shall update such Supporter's payment information so as to make sure such cash pledge can be fulfilled if and when a campaign is successful (i.e. when pledges to the Project reach at least 80% fulfillment of the Project's funding goals). As a condition of "indevue" enabling payment processing services through Stripe, you agree to provide "indevue" accurate and complete information about you and (if applicable) your business, and you authorize "indevue" to share it and transaction information related to your use of the payment processing services provided by Stripe. "indevue" shall have no liability for transactions or interactions with the third-party payment processor.
Incentives offered by Project Owners for contributions of any kind to a Project are strictly between the Project owner and the Supporter. A Project Owner is not required to grant a Supporter's request for a refund unless the Project Owner is unable or unwilling to fulfill the incentive reward or the Project Owner cancels the Project. For some incentive rewards, the Project Owner will need further information from Supporters, such as a mailing address or t-shirt size, to enable the Project Owner to deliver the incentive rewards. To receive the reward, Supporters agree to provide the reasonably requested information to the Project Owner and failure to do so in a timely manner will release Project Owner from the obligation to deliver such incentive awards without any obligation to return the contribution.
"indevue" does not represent, warrant or guarantee:
"indevue" makes no representations regarding the deductibility of any contribution for tax purposes. Supporters are directed to consult your tax or legal advisor for more information. Projects that have agreements with a Fiscal Sponsor may be able to provide deductibility through the agreement with that Fiscal Sponsor, in which instances only "indevue" may act as a limited agent for the Fiscal Sponsor, all as more specifically provided for in the Fiscal Sponsorship Terms of Service. In such instances, deductibility would then be the sole responsibility of the Fiscal Sponsor, to whom "indevue" will provide a supporter's name, email address and contribution amount. Please refer to the Fiscal Sponsorship Terms and Services provided hereinbelow for further details.

PLEASE READ THESE FISCAL SPONSORSHIP TERMS OF SERVICE (THIS "AGREEMENT" OR THE "FS TERMS OF SERVICE", WHICH FS TERMS OF SERVICE ARE INCORPORATED INTO THE TERMS OF SERVICE AND MADE A MATERIAL PART THEREOF BY REFERENCE) CAREFULLY BEFORE USING THE SERVICES OFFERED BY "indevue", INC. (""indevue"" OR THE "COMPANY"). THIS AGREEMENT SETS FORTH THE LEGALLY BINDING TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR YOUR USE OF THE SITE AND/OR SERVICE WITH RESPECT TO ANY PROJECT UTILIZING FISCAL SPONSORSHIP, WHETHER YOU ARE A PROJECT OWNER, SUPPORTER, AND/OR USER. ANY TERM USED BUT NOT DEFINED HEREIN SHALL HAVE THE MEANING ASCRIBED TO IT IN THE COMPANY'S TERMS OF SERVICE, WHICH CAN BE FOUND ABOVE, TO WHICH YOU ARE ALSO BOUND.
Company is a multi-faceted entity that, among other endeavors, provides funding facilitation to independent filmmakers and desires to so provide such services to filmmakers with and through fiscal sponsors; and
Company has arrangements with certain charitable, not-for-profit, and/or 501(c)(3) organizations (each a "Sponsor" or collectively, "Sponsors") that offer, provide, or intend to provide fiscal sponsorship for certain Projects that plan to or are currently pursuing funding facilitation through Company.
For the consideration provided for herein and in the Terms of Service, and other good and valuable consideration the receipt and sufficiency of which is agreed upon, you agree as follows:
Company may, at Company's sole option and in Company's sole discretion from time to time, make available certain Projects for fiscal sponsorship application with a Sponsor, which Projects shall each be subject at all times to both Company's and the applicable Sponsor's independent terms and conditions. Company understands and agrees that each Project made available to a Sponsor must complete Sponsor's fiscal sponsorship application process and be approved for fiscal sponsorship, which process shall be in such Sponsor's sole discretion pursuant to its policies, application procedures, and applicable laws, rules and regulations. Company may assist you with any such Project, whether related to Sponsor's application process, providing support for such a Project, or otherwise; provided, however, that you understand and agree to be subject at all times to the terms and conditions of this Agreement and any Sponsor guidelines, rules, and/or requirements with respect to an applicable Project. In no instance, however, will Company be required by this Agreement or otherwise to continue to work on and/or support any Project. By accepting these terms, you agree not to and will not use the Company's or Sponsor's name, brand(s), and/or intellectual property of any kind or nature except as specifically allowed by Company and/or Sponsor, and in any event will never use same in a negative, disparaging, ridiculing, mocking, or defamatory manner (regardless of the veracity or purported veracity of such use), which restriction shall extend to your owners, managers, employees, agents, and/or legal representatives.
Your agreement to the terms and conditions provided for herein shall commence upon your acceptance of same by "checking-the-box" regarding fiscal sponsorship and/or however else the Company reasonably requires your agreement to such terms/conditions, and shall continue thereafter indefinitely (the "Term"). If you do not agree to the terms and conditions provided for herein, you shall not be allowed to participate with or in any Sponsor-affiliated Project through the Company.
Sponsors have appointed Company as Sponsors' nonexclusive agent for the limited purpose of receiving contributions on behalf of certain Projects approved for fiscal sponsorship by a Sponsor. With respect to each such approved Project, Company has agreed to report to Sponsor each contribution and to provide Sponsor with such contributions in a timely manner, less only Company's fees. You understand and agree that Company's fees with respect to any Project are up to 5% of funding actually obtained through Company with respect to such Project, all pursuant to these terms and conditions and the Terms of Service.
You understand and agree that other than the limited agent role specifically provided for in Section 4 above, the relationship of the Company and a Sponsor shall be that of independent contractor and not as an employee, agent, representative (legal or otherwise) of the other for any purpose whatsoever, and neither party is or shall be liable for any benefits, taxes, or any other payments and/or obligations of the other party. This Agreement shall not be deemed to create any relationship of partnership, joint venture, or other agency between you and the Company or any Sponsor, and you agree not to and shall not make any representation to such effect. You understand and agree that Company, as a service provider to each Project, accepts certain fees in connection with each such Project.
(A) Company hereby disclaims any and all responsibility, obligation and/or liability with respect to Sponsor's fiscal sponsorship of each Project (if and as applicable), and you understand and agree that at all times during the Term, Sponsor is solely responsible for maintaining its non-profit status (including without limitation its 501(c)(3) status, if applicable); failure by Sponsor to so maintain such status shall in no event be Company's responsibility and, to the extent you contribute to or have any involvement in such failure (by your use of the Service or otherwise), you hereby release and waive any and all claims you may have against Company pertaining to same.
(B) You understand and agree that Company is a for-profit entity and does not offer fiscal sponsorship as part of its services, and if you choose to be associated with a Project that is fiscally sponsored or otherwise associated with a Sponsor, you do so with full knowledge of same and you knowingly and willingly accept any risks associated with same. Company makes no representations or warranties including without limitation with respect to the tax implications, if any, of working with or being a part of a Sponsor-affiliated Project. You hereby indemnify and hold Company harmless for and against any and all damages, liability, claims, proceedings, and/or costs/expenses incurred by you with respect to any Sponsor-affiliated Project.
(C) You acknowledge that the disclaimers and protections contained in this Section 6 are reasonable and necessary in order to protect Company's legitimate business interests, and that any violation of these provisions by you would result in damages to Company, for which you hereby agrees to and shall indemnify Company (including for related attorneys' fees and costs).
