LAST REVISED: September 1, 2021
By using Fundof (“The Platform”, “Service”, “Services”, “We”, “Us”, “Our”), as a supporter (“Supporter(s)”, “Tipper(s)”) or creator (“Creator”) (collectively; “User”, “Users”), you agree to all the rules and conditions presented in these Terms & Conditions. Fundof is not a financial institution, merchant, creditor, charity, advisor or broker of any kind.
A Fundof creator is defined as someone who registers a Fundof creator profile or uses the Fundof platform in any way to solicit tips, messages, and/or link content (“Link”, “Links”), or uses any of the banking functionalities. A Fundof supporter is defined as any person or entity providing payments (“Tips”), or messages to a Creator. A Fundof User is either a supporter or a creator, or a combination of the two.
You can manually register a Profile (as a Creator or Supporter) on fundof.me, or by making your first tip. To register for receiving tips with Fundof, you need to be 18 years old or over. You are responsible for your account and all the activity on it. You can tip other users without being 18 years old if you have a valid method of payment.
After registering you will be prompted to choose your username which becomes your Fundof Link (“Tipping Link”). Do not impersonate anyone else, use trademarks that do not belong to you, or choose names that are offensive or that violate any local laws. If you do not adhere to these rules, your account may be suspended.
Users are responsible for all the activity on their account, and for keeping their password confidential. Report any misuse of your account to email@example.com.
To start accepting tips, you need to be at least 18 years old, or old enough to fulfill the local regulations where you live. Our payment provider may ask you for proof of ID and age, proof of residency and/or other information in order to activate your Fundof account.
2.1 The Fundof Visa Debit Card (“Fundof Card”, “Card”), Fundof Visa Debit Virtual Card (“Fundof Virtual Card”,” Virtual Card”) (collectively; “Cards”) and associated transaction functionalities (“Transactions”, “Fundof account”), (collectively; “Card Services”) are part of the Fundof Creator profile. In order to activate these functionalities an ID check, and KYC process is required. This is done through the Fundof platform, and managed by third-party partners. When providing KYC information, you promise and warrant to us that all such documents and information are authentic, up-to-date, true and correct and that you have the necessary permissions to disclose it to us. We reserve the right to suspend the services, including access to the account or freeze any funds, or to terminate the agreement and close your account at any time if you do not provide us with satisfactory KYC information upon request.
The Fundof Card Services are managed by our partner Intergiro, a Swedish fintech company licensed and registered as an electronic money institution with the Swedish Financial Supervisory Authority (Sw. Finansinspektionen) (registration number 48003) with the authority to issue electronic money and to provide payment services.

2.11 It is generally not possible to overdraw the Fundof account. It is your responsibility to ensure that there is always sufficient balance (including any fees and charges) in the account before you create a payment order or make a purchase with a card. In rare circumstances, the account may have a negative balance due to a reversed transaction, due to the fees and charges to be deducted or due to an offline card transaction. In such a case, you will need to transfer funds to your account to cover the overdrawn amount. If you do not cover any overdrawn amounts on your account within five (5) banking days, we have the right to terminate this agreement with immediate effect and close your account in accordance with these terms and conditions.
2.12 E-money is a type of electronic cash which we as a regulated e-money institution is authorised to issue in exchange for receipt of money. Your account is an e-money account which holds your e-money. Upon the receipt of collections intended for your account, our partner Intergiro deposits such money into a bank account with a partner bank and issue the corresponding amount of e-money to your account. Intergiro are required to do so under mandatory law in order to keep your money segregated from their own funds and they are not, unlike a bank, allowed to lend your money to anyone. This means that your money is secure and at all times deposited in ring-fenced accounts we hold with our partner banks. These safeguarding practices are designed to protect your money. In the unlikely event of an insolvency, after administrator or liquidator costs have been paid, Fundof users will rank first in any claim on funds held in the ring-fenced accounts. Under the terms of the e-money licence Intergiro is not permitted to pay interest to you and the money in your account is not covered by deposit guarantee schemes.
