3.SCOPE OF SERVICES:
CrowdVista replaces the traditional charity method of monetary donations with product donation, thus building trust and transparency for donors. CrowdVista is facilitating a connection between Beneficiaries and You, so that You can donate to the Beneficiaries as per their requirement with relevant Materials, which shall be sourced by CrowdVista. CrowdVista shall act as a platform to allow the Beneficiaries to put up and share their Campaigns to raise support for the Materials required by them.
You shall be entitled to choose the Campaigns, You wish to support and donate the Materials, by making payment of the Materials to Times technology on CrowdVista. Times technology shall purchase the Materials and donate on Your behalf to Beneficiaries.
You understand, hereby acknowledge and agree that Times technology or this CrowdVista does not conduct any detailed and in-depth checks on the veracity and genuineness of the Campaigns put up by the Beneficiaries.

However, CrowdVista shall ensure that :
all the Materials donated by you shall be of a reasonable quality; and
sourced at prices conveyed on CrowdVista; and
delivered to the Beneficiaries, intimation whereof shall be sent to you.
Change in products being delivered after the campaign- At CrowdVista, We strive hard to deliver the exact products donated by the Donors to the Campaigner. However due to market conditions, We have to make changes in the products being delivered to the campaigner. We make sure that the Campaigner receive the same worth of products that they received earlier as well.
Some of the reasons why there will be change in the products that get delivered-
As most of the campaigns run for over a month, Prices get fluctuated and we either have to send more or less than the quantity obtained depending on the price at the time of purchase
We work with a lot of vendors across India and as we only process the order once the donation comes, Many times the vendors will go out of stock of few products and we have to replace them with other items after consulting the campaigner
Campaigner receive products from other source and they want to use the donated money for other critical products
Whatever changes we make in the campaign we make sure that we deliver the same worth of products to the Campaigner.
The Services provide features that exist for the ultimate benefit of the Beneficiaries and allow you to meet donate easily online. Considering the larger objective of donations reaching the Beneficiaries, You agree that as soon as You participate in a Campaign and donate Materials, You shall become a Backer for the Campaign and Beneficiaries shall have access to the Details provided by You. In case You do not wish to become a known Backer, You shall be entitled to be an anonymous Backer. Please consider carefully what You choose to share or make public, Times technology has no responsibility for that activity.
