Purpose and responsibility in mutual relations between users

All relationships that are established between project holders and investors through this site are exclusively theirs, so administrator does not take responsibility for any of these parties for the obligations of the other party, nor does it guarantee such obligations. Each user of this site, regardless of the capacity in which acts, agrees that all contacts with other users of this site, regardless of the capacity in which these other users act, take place solely on their mutual responsibility, and are waived on the basis of their mutual relationships any requests to the site administrator.

Negotiating obligations between users and making payments
When using the site and entering into mutual obligations, users are obliged to comply with the laws and other regulations of the Republic of Croatia and European Union. All monetary obligations between users are contracted exclusively in Euro currency. The binding relationship between the users is created when platform transfers the funds of the investors to the bank account of the project holder. In the investment process, the investor, by selecting a particular financing model, is forwarded to the IPG (Internet Payment Gateway) page where makes the payment. The investment is considered completed when the investor completes the entire prescribed payment procedure, that is, enters his personal data (name, surname, email address and residential address) and selects the “Pay” option. After the completed investment, the project owner and the investor will receive a confirmation of the completed investment from administrator to their e-mail address, showing the investment model, the price paid and the personal data of the investor, i.e. the project owner. The investor can withdraw support for the campaign and request a refund during the campaign.
Choosing a flexible or all-or-nothing fundraising model
The project holder is obliged to indicate before the start of the campaign whether the campaign applies a flexible or “all or nothing” fundraising model. If the project owner does not highlight the desired model in the description of the campaign, it is considered that the campaign applies a flexible model. During the campaign, it is not possible to change the selected model. The flexible model of campaign financing implies that the project holder has the right to keep all the funds collected regardless of the success of the campaign, while with the “all or nothing” model, they keep them only if the campaign reaches the target amount. If the campaign that applies the “all or nothing” model does not collect the target amount of money, administrator will return the money paid to the investors within 15 working days, whereby the contributions will be reduced by the amount of the cost of the bank transaction and the fee calculated by the payment service providers on the platform in accordance with their valid price lists. If the project owner decides to end the campaign that uses a flexible financing model, administrator will calculate the fee for the campaign implementation as if the campaign had ended within the planned period, and the project owner will assume the responsibility of returning the money to the investors. The co-owner of the project or a member of the team who subsequently withdrew the consent for the implementation of the campaign is obliged to pay within 5 working days from the date of delivery of the compensation request all the costs of advertising the campaign, lost profit in the amount of 5% of the highest target amount stated in the cost list of the campaign, as well as non-material damage. If the co-owner of the project or a member of the team does not pay the requested amount within the given period, he is obliged to pay interest on default, at which the highest allowed interest rate will be applied.
