THIRD PARTY AGREEMENTS
Prytany LLC is Solely Responsible for the Prytany Platform
You acknowledge and agree that this Agreement is between you and Prytany LLC, not with any third party (including, but not limited to, Apple®, Google®, any mobile carrier or any payment processing service), and that Prytany LLC is solely responsible for the Prytany Platform. The Prytany mobile application works on an application linked to a particular device and operating system, such as your mobile device's operating system. Prytany is solely responsible for providing maintenance and support services for the Prytany Platform.
The Prytany Platform allows Constituents to send contributions to Registered Campaigns and Registered National Party Committees through their mobile device using Prytany's payment processing service. If you use the Prytany Platform on your mobile device, you are responsible for any fees that your wireless service provider charges for SMS, data services, etc. Your wireless service provider is not the provider of the Prytany Platform.
Covered Third Parties
Your use of the Prytany Platform may be subject to separate agreements you may enter into with your mobile device operating system provider (e.g., Apple®, Google® or Microsoft®), your mobile device manufacturer (e.g., Apple, Samsung®), your mobile service carrier (e.g., AT&T® or Verizon®), and other parties involved in providing your mobile device service. Third party operating system providers such as Apple, Google, and Microsoft, your phone or other mobile device manufacturer, your wireless carrier or other network provider, any other product or service provider related to your mobile device service, and Prytany's payment processing services provider are collectively referred to as "Covered Third Parties." You agree to comply with all applicable third party terms of agreement when using the Prytany Platform. Prytany LLC is not a party to those agreements and has no responsibility for the products and services provided by third parties. Covered Third Parties have no obligation to provide maintenance or support services for the Prytany Platform.
Covered Third Parties have no warranty obligations whatsoever with respect to the Prytany Platform. Any claims, losses, liabilities, damages, costs or expenses attributable to any failure of the Prytany Platform to conform to any warranty provided by Prytany LLC, if any, will be Prytany's sole responsibility.
Prytany LLC, and not any Covered Third Parties, is responsible for addressing any claims relating to your use of the Prytany Platform, including, but not limited to: (i) product liability claims; (ii) any claim that the Prytany Platform fail to conform to any applicable legal or regulatory requirement; (iii) claims arising under consumer protection or similar legislation; and (iv) intellectual property claims. Please see the Contact Us section below for how to contact Prytany LLC.
Access to the Prytany Platform on Apple Devices
If you are accessing the Prytany Platform on an Apple device, you acknowledge and agree that Apple, and Apple's subsidiaries, are third party beneficiaries of this Agreement, and that Apple will have the right (and will be deemed to have accepted the right) to enforce this Agreement against you as a third party beneficiary. Such rights may also accrue to other handset manufacturers and operating systems which participate in the Prytany Platform.
Permitted Use of the Prytany Platform.
Compliance with Federal Election Laws and Regulations and Prytany's Code of Conduct.
Prytany abides by U.S. federal and state campaign laws, including Title 52 of the U.S. Code, Subtitle III ("Federal Campaign Finance") and Title 26 of the U.S. Code, Subtitle H ("Financing of Presidential Election Campaigns"). All users of Prytany agree to abide by such laws as a condition of their use of the Prytany Platform.
Accordingly, the Prytany Platform allows (a) eligible individuals, as defined by the U.S. Federal Election Commission (the "FEC"), to make lawful campaign contributions and pledges to principal campaign committees ("Registered Campaigns") and national party committees ("Registered National Party Committees") that are registered with the FEC and that have enrolled with Prytany (hereinafter referred to as "Enrolled Committees"), and (b) Enrolled Committees to receive lawful campaign contributions and pledges from individuals who are eligible to make such contributions and pledges under applicable US law, including the regulations of the FEC (" Constituents"). The Prytany Platform, however, does not permit Constituents to make contributions to a Registered Campaign or a Registered National Party Committee that has not enrolled with Prytany (" Unenrolled Committees"). Constituents and Enrolled Committees, using the Prytany Platform, also may form Groups on Prytany, may solicit contributions and pledges from other Constituents, and may engage in messaging among Constituents, Groups and Enrolled Committees. Contributions by Constituents to Enrolled Committees are not directed by Prytany.
Prytany LLC attempts to verify the identity of all users of the Prytany Platform to ensure that they are who they say they are. It is the user's responsibility, however, to determine if they meet the FEC requirements to be a Constituent, a Registered Campaign or a Registered National Party Committee. We do not guarantee the identity of any user of the Prytany Platform, including any Constituent or any Enrolled Committee. We also do not guarantee that a Constituent using the Prytany Platform to make a contribution or pledge can or will make the contribution or that the Enrolled Committee receiving a contribution or pledge made using the Prytany Platform can or will accept the contribution.
If you have any questions about whether it is permissible for you to make or receive a contribution under federal law, please go tohttps://www.fec.gov/help-candidates-and-committees/candidate-taking-receipts/who-can-and-cannot-contribute/for information about an individual's eligibility to make contributions and pledges to Enrolled Committees or, if you are an Enrolled Committee, about your obligations regarding contributions and pledges made to you.
In addition to those requirements, Prytany users agree to also abide of the federal campaign contribution limits set by the FEC. Constituents agree not to make, and Enrolled Committees agree to not knowingly accept and keep, contributions in excess of these limits. The applicable limits for federal elections may be found here:https://www.fec.gov/help-candidates-and-committees/candidate-taking-receipts/contribution-limits.
Prytany users agree also to abide by Prytany's Code of Conduct which prohibits abusive behavior, harrassment, hate speech and other unacceptable conduct. Please read Prytany's Code of Conduct, which can be found on our home page athttps://www.prytany.com/code-of-conduct.
Violations of these conditions of use will result in the suspension or cancellation of your Prytany Account.
Eligibility to be a Constituent and to use the Prytany Platform
If you are a Constituent, you may use the Prytany Platform to make one-time or recurring campaign contributions and pledges to Enrolled Committees using your mobile device or PC, to solicit contributions and pledges to Registered Campaigns and Registered National Party Committees from other Constituents, and to share messages and other information with other Constituents, with Enrolled Committees and with Groups that you, other Constituents or Enrolled Committees may form on Prytany. You will not be permitted to make a contribution to an Unenrolled Committee, however. The Prytany Platform will treat your attempt to make a contribution to an Unenrolled Committee as your intent to make such contribution if and when the Unenrolled Committee becomes an Enrolled Committee.
In order to be eligible to make a campaign contribution using the Prytany Platform, a Constituent must be an individual and make the contribution from his or her own funds. Those funds may not be provided to the Constituent by another person or entity for the purpose of making the contribution. The Constituent must make the contribution with their own personal purchase method and not with a corporate or business purchase method or a method issued to another person. A Constituent must be a U.S citizen or lawfully admitted permanent resident (i.e., a green card holder).
If for any reason Prytany determines that a Constituent's identity must be verified, Prytany may suspend a Constituent's Prytany Account until that Constituent complies with Prytany's identity verification requirements. Reasons for further identity verification include suspicious activity involving a Constituent's Prytany Account, any indication that a Constituent may not be who he or she states, and any indication that a Constituent may be a foreign national. Prytany also will require further identity verification if an Enrolled Committee or any governmental authority requests that a Constituent's identity be verified. Prytany's identity verification methodology requires the Constituent to log on to Prytany's website and then to use the identification card scanning application provided by Prytany to scan and send to Prytany a picture of the Constituent's driver's license or other government-issued identification, which may include the Constituent's US passport if Prytany so requires.
Such scanning of identification cards will occur only through Prytany's website and not through its mobile applications.If Prytany determines that the scanned identification card appears to be valid, the Constituent's access to the Prytany Platform will be reinstated. If Prytany determines that the scanned identification card appears not to be valid, however, the Constituent's access to the Prytany Platform will continue to be suspended and the Constituent's Prytany Account may be cancelled.
If a Constituent is exceedingly active on Prytany, including messaging activity with other users, or using the Prytany Platform to make aggregate contributions to Enrolled Committees in excess of $999.99, that Constituent may be required to submit his or her Social Security Number and to sign and return to Prytany a completed SSA Form 89. Such steps will permit Prytany to further verify such Constituent's eligibility to make federal campaign contributions at minimal cost to the Constituent (currently $1.00) payable to Prytany to reimburse Prytany for the fee charged by the Social Security Administration.
Constituents under the age of 18
If a Constituent is under the age of 18, additional restrictions apply. If a Constituent is a minor (under the age of 18), then such minor Constituent may make a contribution only if:
The decision to contribute is made knowingly and voluntarily by the minor;
The funds, goods or services contributed are owned or controlled by the minor; and
The contribution is not made using funds given to the minor as a gift for the purpose of making the contribution, and is not in any way controlled by another individual.
In order for a Registered Campaign to enroll with Prytany and to maintain an account on Prytany, you (1) must be a "principal campaign committee" (as defined by the FEC) and registered with the FEC as an authorized committee designated by a candidate as the principal committee to raise contributions and make expenditures for his or her campaign for a federal office and (2) must accept this Agreement. If you are a Registered Campaign and enroll with Prytany (and thereby become an "Enrolled Committee" for purposes of this Agreement), you may use the Prytany Platform to send and receive campaign messages, fundraising solicitations and other information with Constituents and with Groups that you or Constituents may form on Prytany. Please see Part II.I below for a description of the processing and fees for contributions made to Enrolled Committees using the Prytany Platform.
Registered National Party Committees
In order for a Registered National Party Committee to enroll with Prytany and to maintain an account on Prytany, you (1) must be the "national political party committee" (as defined by the FEC) and registered with the FEC as the authorized national committee designated by a political party as its national committee to raise contributions and make expenditures for the political party and (2) must accept this Agreement. If you are a Registered National Party Committee and enroll with Prytany (and thereby become an "Enrolled Committee" for purposes of this Agreement), you may use the Prytany Platform to send and receive campaign messages, fundraising solicitations and other information with Constituents and with Groups that you or Constituents may form on Prytany. Please see Part II.I below for a description of the processing and fees for contributions made to Enrolled Committees using the Prytany Platform.
Prytany's Payment Processing Services Provider
Contributions made and received using the Prytany Platform are processed by Stripe ©Stripe. Stripe ©Stripe is a licensed provider of money transfer services and all money transmission is provided by Stripe ©Stripe, pursuant to Prytany's license with Stripe ©Stripe.
Prytany LLC has no responsibility for the actions of Stripe © Stripe, any Constituent, any Enrolled Committee, or any other person using Prytany.
Seehttps://www.prytany.com/privacy-policy/for additional information and for disclosures that Prytany LLC is required to post by certain jurisdictions.
Eligibility and Account Registration
Registered National Party Committees
Types of Accounts
We offer two different types of Prytany Accounts: Constituent Accounts, which may be opened only by Constituents, and Campaign Accounts, which may be opened only by a Registered Committee or a Registered National Party Committee that is an Enrolled Committee. Prytany Accounts may not be used to receive business, commercial or merchant transactions. An individual may have only one Constituent Account and an Enrolled Committee may have only one Campaign Account.
As explained above, only eligible individuals may open a Constituent Account. By opening a Constituent Account and accepting the terms applicable to Constituents and Constituent Accounts set forth in this Agreement, a Constituent attests that he or she satisfies the FEC's eligibility requirements for making political contributions to Registered Campaigns and that he or she is not establishing a Constituent Account for marketing or other commercial purposes. We may restrict or suspend your access to or cancel your Prytany Account and may place a hold on contributions made by you if you are in breach of this Agreement.
Constituent Accounts are for use in making campaign contributions and pledges to Enrolled Committees. Constituent Accounts may also be used to communicate with other Prytany Constituents, with Enrolled Committees, and with Groups on Prytany created or selected by you or by Enrolled Committees as described in this Agreement. Some features of Constituent Accounts may be limited based on how you wish to use the Prytany Platform, how much you elect to contribute or pledge and what we know about you. We may require that you provide more information in order to complete a particular campaign contribution or pledge.
As explained above, only Registered Campaigns and Registered National Party Committees that are Enrolled Committees may open a Campaign Account. By opening a Campaign Account and accepting the terms set forth in this Agreement applicable to Registered Campaigns or Registered National Party Committees, as applicable, including but not limited to the Rules and Restrictions for Campaign Accounts set forth below, a Registered Campaign or a Registered National Party Committee attests that it is the principal campaign committee of a candidate for federal office or is the national committee of a political party, and that it is registered as such with the FEC. We may reverse or place a hold on contributions made to you if you are in breach of this Agreement.
You hereby authorize Prytany, directly or through third parties, to make any inquiries we consider necessary to validate your identity and/or authenticate your account information and, for Campaign Accounts, your FEC Campaign Identification Number. This may include asking you for further information and/or documentation about your account usage or identity, or requiring you to take steps to confirm ownership of your email address, wireless/cellular telephone number or financial accounts, and verifying your information against third party databases or through other sources. This process is for internal verification purposes.
You have the right to receive a statement showing all contribution and pledge activity in your Prytany Account. You may view your account by logging into your Prytany Account.
Making Contributions and Pledges
You Control Your Constituent Account
After you have registered as a Constituent, you will be able to make campaign contributions and pledges to Enrolled Committees using the Prytany Platform in accordance with this Agreement. Each Constituent may have only one Constituent Account. You control your Constituent Account and have sole power to direct your campaign contributions and pledges provided you are in compliance with this Agreement.
Types of Contributions and Pledges; Limits under Federal Election Law
A Constituent may use the Prytany Platform (i) to make a one-time campaign contribution in a specified amount to an Enrolled Committee, (ii) to make a commitment to an Enrolled Committee that he or she will make regular, periodic contributions in specified amounts and at specified times, which contribution commitments may be conditioned on the candidate associated with the Enrolled Committee maintaining specified ratings and (iii) to pledge to an Enrolled Committee that he or she intends to make one or more contributions to it, which contributions may be conditioned on the candidate associated with the Registered Campaign maintaining specified ratings. The aggregate amount that a Constituent may contribute to a particular Enrolled Committee is limited by federal election law, presently $2,700 to each Registered Campaign for each election and $33,900 to each Registered National Party Committee during each calendar year. Pledges count as contributions made for purposes of such limits (e.g., an outstanding $500 pledge to a Registered Campaign reduces the potential amount of other contributions that the pledgor may make to such Registered Campaign during the election from $2,700 to $2,200).
For the purposes of this Agreement a one-time contribution is defined as a one-time transfer of money from a Constituent to an Enrolled Committee. A Constituent will not be permitted to make one-time contributions to Unenrolled Committees using the Prytany Platform; instead, the Prytany Platform will treat a Constituent's attempt to make a contribution to an Unenrolled Committee as such Constituent's intent to make such contribution if and when the Unenrolled Committee becomes an Enrolled Committee.
For the purposes of this Agreement, a periodic contribution is defined as a commitment to transfer money from a Constituent to an Enrolled Committee in the future at specific times and in specific amounts (which may vary) pursuant to a predetermined schedule. Periodic contributions will be withdrawn by Prytany for the benefit of the Enrolled Committee from a Constituent's designated preferred funding source as previously provided to Prytany in accordance with the specified schedule unless the Constituent changes, alters, or cancels the scheduled contribution or the Enrolled Committee withdraws or otherwise ceases to be active. A periodic contribution may be conditioned on the candidate associated with a Registered Campaign maintaining an active campaign.
As stated above in Part II.F.2.i, the Prytany Platform will treat a Constituent's attempt to make a one-time contribution to an Unenrolled Committee using the Prytany Platform as such Constituent's conditional commitment to make such contribution if and when the Unenrolled Committee becomes an Enrolled Committee. The amount of such conditioned contribution will be withdrawn by Prytany for the benefit of the Enrolled Committee from a Constituent's designated preferred funding source as previously provided to Prytany if and when the Unenrolled Committee becomes an Enrolled Committee unless the Constituent changes, alters, or cancels the intended contribution.
Pledges may be made only to Registered Campaigns that are Enrolled Committees.
A pledged contribution is a promise of a future contribution of money. Pledges may be conditioned on the candidate associated with a Registered Campaign maintaining or achieving a specified rating by a particular issue advocacy organization within a specific period of time. When the candidate associated with a Registered Campaign successfully maintains or achieves the specified rating, the Constituent will be notified and given the opportunity to make the pledged contribution. Pledges must be made for a specific amount, with every intention of the Constituent to pay the stated amount in its entirety. All primary election pledges must be made on or before the day of the primary election. Pledges are built into a contributor's aggregate contribution total.
Conditioning Your Pledges
Constituents may condition their pledges to a Registered Campaign by requiring that the candidate associated with a Registered Campaign maintain or obtain at least a designated rating by a recognized third-party organization or special interest group that routinely and publicly rates candidates and elected officials with respect to their views and voting history on specific political issues or causes. Profiles of candidates appearing on Prytany may reflect some of the published ratings received by such candidates for the most recent election cycle for which such ratings are available but not all candidates will have ratings from all rating organizations and groups. Prytany will endeavor to update such published ratings when and as they become available. If a Constituent requires a candidate to maintain or obtain a certain rating as a condition to such candidate's Registered Campaign receiving a future contribution, Prytany will determine whether that candidate has or has not satisfied that condition and notify the Constituent of such determination before processing the conditioned contribution. Prytany, however, is not responsible for the accuracy, completeness, reliability, timeliness or frequency of any rating of a candidate. A Constituent may change the required rating or cancel a contribution commitment or pledge at any time before the conditioned contribution is made. Changing a rating condition or cancelling a contribution commitment or pledge may affect the Constituent's rating, however. In absence of a preexisting rating for a particular candidate, Prytany will assign such candidate a C rating on a letter grade scale or a numerical rating of a 50 on a 1 to 100 number scale.
Pledge Limit; Constituent Ratings
We may, at our discretion, impose limits on the number of pledges a Constituent makes using the Prytany Platform as well as the amount of those pledges. If we have authenticated your identity and your designated preferred funding source and you have honored your commitments and pledges, we may increase your pledge limit. If you fail to honor your contribution commitments and pledges, we may restrict your ability to make contribution commitments and pledges using the Prytany Platform. Prytany will assign to each Constituent a rating based on such Constituent's activity on the Prytany Platform. These limits and ratings may change from time to time in Prytany's sole discretion.
Sharing Your Contribution History
Your contribution history will not be shared with others on your Prytany social activity feed unless you choose to share. If you elect to share a contribution and your default audience setting is public, that setting will control who sees the contribution. If you make a contribution and your default audience setting is private, the contribution will not be shared with anyone through your Prytany social activity feed, although the Registered Campaign or Registered National Party Committee receiving your contribution will list your contribution in its public Prytany Account and in its required FEC reporting in accordance with federal election law. You can change your default audience setting in the privacy section of your Prytany Account settings. You can change the audience setting for any contribution you have already made by selecting it from your Prytany social activity feed and changing the audience setting.
Contribution Authorizations and Processing
When you make a contribution to an Enrolled Committee, you are providing Prytany or its payment processing services provider with an authorization to process your contribution using your designated preferred funding source. Prytany's third-party payment processing services provider will initiate a transfer of funds from your designated preferred funding source to your Constituent Account. Your contribution will be held as pending in your Constituent Account until Prytany processes it, which may not occur immediately depending on the Constituent, the Enrolled Committee, or the amount of the contribution. In such cases, your authorization will remain valid for up to thirty (30) days although Prytany either will validate or reject your contribution within ten (10) days after your Constituent Account was credited with the amount of your intended contribution. Once your contribution is validated by Prytany, Prytany's third-party payment processing services provider will initiate a transfer of funds from your Constituent Account to the Campaign Account of the Enrolled Committee and then ultimately to the bank account registered with Prytany by the Enrolled Committee. For contribution commitments and pledges, we may request an authorization for what you estimate to be your entire contribution amount. A Constituent may cancel a contribution commitment or pledge at any time before the scheduled contribution is actually transferred to the Enrolled Committee's Campaign Account. Once a contribution is transferred to an Enrolled Committee's Campaign Account, the contribution cannot be reversed by the Constituent using the Prytany Platform. A Constituent must contact the Enrolled Committee regarding any requested refund of a contribution, which is in the sole discretion of the Enrolled Committee.
You may make contributions using the Prytany Platform with a bank account, debit card or credit card, and may designated one of these to be your preferred funding source. When you make a contribution to an Enrolled Committee through the Prytany Platform, Prytany or its third-party payment processing services provider will withdraw funds from your designated preferred funding source to make the contribution in its entirety. When you use a credit card or debit card to make a contribution, you will be charged the standard 2.9% fee plus $0.30 per transaction charged by Prytany's third-party payment processing services provider. You will be notified of this charge before you complete your credit card or debit card transaction. This charge will be in addition to and will not reduce the amount of your intended contribution. You will pay no fee or charge when your contribution is funded through an ACH bank account transfer.
Funding Source Limitations
In order to manage risk, Prytany may limit the funding sources available for your use to fund any particular contribution. For example, your funding sources for a particular contribution may be limited to your bank account.
Please note that the various funding sources have different dispute resolution rights and procedures in the event your transaction turns out to be unsatisfactory. Your dispute resolution rights are determined by the funding source used to fund your transaction.
When your bank account is used as your funding source, you are requesting that Prytany or its payment processing services provider initiate on your behalf an electronic transfer from your bank account. For these transactions, Prytany or its payment processing services provider will make electronic transfers (via the Automated Clearing House ("ACH") of NACHA - The Electronic Payment Association (" NACHA")) from your bank account in the amount you specify. You agree that such requests constitute your authorization to Prytany or its payment processing services provider to make the ACH transfer, and once you have provided your authorization for the transfer, you will not be able to cancel the electronic transfer and Prytany or its payment processing services provider may resubmit any ACH debit you authorized that is returned for insufficient or uncollected funds, except as otherwise provided by NACHA's ACH rules (collectively, the " ACH Rules"), or applicable law.
Debit Card Processing
Prytany or its payment processing services provider will process your debit card-funded transactions through either the debit card's ATM debit network or the Visa/MasterCard network, as Prytany or its payment processing services provider may elect at its discretion.
Credit Card Information
If your credit card account number changes or your credit card expiration date changes, we may acquire that information from our payment processing services provider and update your account accordingly.
Refused and Refunded Transactions
When you make a contribution, the Enrolled Committee that received your contribution is not required to accept it and may refund it even if it was accepted. You agree that you will not hold Prytany LLC liable for any damages resulting from a decision by an Enrolled Committee not to accept or to refund your contribution made through the Prytany Platform.
If an Enrolled Committee to which you make a contribution through the Prytany Platform does not accept your contribution or elects to refund your contribution, then if the Enrolled Committee has not transferred your contribution from its Campaign Account to its bank account, Prytany's third-party payment processing services provider will cancel or reverse your contribution and will return your contribution, without reduction for Prytany's 3% per transaction processing fee, to your Constituent Account. If the Enrolled Committee has transferred your contribution from its Campaign Account to its bank account before it determined that it is unable to accept your contribution or elected to refund your contribution, the Enrolled Committee will be responsible for returning your contribution to you. Prytany's 3% per transaction fee paid by the Enrolled Committee is nonrefundable once the Enrolled Committee transfers your contribution from its Campaign Account to its bank account.
Until the Enrolled Committee transfers your contribution from its Campaign Account to its bank account, a hold may be placed on your contribution and Prytany's 3% per transaction fee. Provided the Enrolled Committee has not transferred your contribution from its Campaign Account to its bank account, we will return any refused or refunded contribution to you through the Prytany Platform promptly after the Enrolled Committee informs Prytany of its election not to accept or to refund your contribution.
Fees for Making Contributions and Using the Prytany Platform
When a credit card or debit card is used to make a contribution to an Enrolled Committee, a Constituent will be charged the standard 2.9% fee plus $0.30 per transaction charged by Prytany's third-party payment processing services provider. This charge will be in addition to and will not reduce the amount of your intended contribution. There is no fee or charge payable by a Constituent when his or her contribution is funded through an ACH bank account transfer. There also is no fee or charge payable by a Constituent when his or her contribution is transferred to an Enrolled Committee; instead, the Enrolled Committee receiving such contribution will pay Prytany a fee equal to 3% of the transferred amount. If Prytany reviews a Constituent's eligibility to make federal campaign contributions by checking with the Social Security Administration that the social security number given to Prytany by such Constituent is consistent with the records maintained by the Social Security Administration, the Constituent will be charged by Prytany for the fee (currently $1.00) paid by Prytany to the Social Security Administration for such search.
When funds for a Constituent's contribution are transferred from a Constituent Account to an Enrolled Committee's Campaign Account via the Prytany Platform, the Enrolled Committee receiving such contribution will pay Prytany a fee equal to 3% of the transferred amount. Each Enrolled Committee also agrees to pay to Prytany, within 30 days after each anniversary of the date such Registered Campaign or Registered National Party Committee accepted this Agreement, an annual top-up fee in an amount equal to $250 minus the aggregate amount of fees paid to Prytany by such Enrolled Committee during the applicable 365-day period for contributions received by such Enrolled Committee from Constituents using the Prytany Platform. The fees paid to Prytany by each Enrolled Committee are in consideration of the overall benefits received by such Enrolled Committee from its use of the Prytany Platform and are considered by Prytany to be commercially reasonable and fair value for such use. Accordingly, Prytany does not think it is making an in-kind contribution to any Enrolled Committee under 11 CFR 100.52(d).
These fees may change from time to time in Prytany's sole discretion. You also may be subject to third party fees, such as insufficient fund fees, reversal fees, or ACH insufficient fund fees that a bank may charge if a contribution is rejected.
Payment investigation is a process by which Prytany or its payment processing services provider reviews certain potentially high-risk transactions. If a contribution is subject to payment investigation, Prytany or its payment processing services provider will place a hold on the contribution and may provide notice to the Enrolled Committee. Prytany or its payment processing services provider will conduct a review and either clear or cancel the contribution. If the contribution is cleared, Prytany or its payment processing services provider will provide notice to the Enrolled Committee. Otherwise, Prytany or its payment processing services provider will cancel the contribution and the funds will be returned to the Constituent. Prytany will provide notice to the Constituent by email and/or in the account history tab of his or her Prytany Account if the contribution is canceled.
Prytany or its payment processing services provider, in its sole discretion, may place a hold on a contribution you make using the Prytany Platform when Prytany or its payment processing services provider believes there may be a high level of risk associated with the transaction. If Prytany or its payment processing services provider places a hold on your contribution, it will show as "pending" in your Prytany Account. Unless we receive a dispute, claim, chargeback, or reversal on the contribution subject to the hold, Prytany or its payment processing services provider will release the payment hold if Prytany or its payment processing services provider receives acceptable confirmation, is able to confirm proper delivery, or otherwise completes its investigation.
Risk of Reversals
When an Enrolled Committee receives a contribution via the Prytany Platform, it is liable to the Constituent for the full amount of the contribution plus any fees payable by the Enrolled Committee if the contribution is later invalidated or refunded for any reason. This means that, in addition to any other liability, an Enrolled Committee will be responsible for the amount of the contribution, plus applicable fees, if there is a reversal or refund of the contribution. Each Enrolled Committee agrees to allow Prytany to recover any amounts due to Prytany from such Enrolled Committee. Prytany will contact the Enrolled Committee to recover the funds from the Enrolled Committee, and may take other legal actions to collect the amount due, to the extent allowed by applicable law.
If a Constituent disputes a contribution made using the Prytany Platform or files a claim for a chargeback, the debit or credit card issuer or the originating bank, not Prytany, will determine whether the dispute is valid and to whom payment is due.
We review account and contribution activity at various times, including when a Constituent initiates a transfer of funds. This review checks for, among other things, suspicious or illegal activity, and whether your account activity complies with this Agreement.
Reviews may result in:
delayed, blocked or cancelled contributions;
account suspension or termination;
funds being seized to comply with a court order, warrant or other legal process; and/or
funds an Enrolled Committee previously received being returned by the Enrolled Committee.
Among other reasons, we may take the above actions if a Constituent knowingly or unknowingly made a contribution from a stolen card or compromised bank account.
In connection with our review process, you may be required to provide us with additional information and/or documentation to verify your identity. We may limit or suspend your access to your Prytany Account until verification is completed.
Closing Your Prytany Account
How to Close Your Prytany Account
As long as there is no pending or in progress transactions, you may close your Prytany Account at any time. You may close your Prytany Account by logging into your account from a web browser, clicking on the "Settings" tab, clicking on the "Cancel my Prytany Account" link, and then following the instructions.
Limitations on Closing Your Prytany Account
You may not close your Prytany Account to evade a payment investigation. If you attempt to close your Prytany Account while we are conducting an investigation, we may suspend your Prytany Account to protect Prytany or a third party against the risk of reversals, chargebacks, claims, fees, fines, penalties and other liability. You will remain liable for all obligations related to your Prytany Account even after your Prytany Account is closed.
Upon termination of this Agreement for any reason, we have the right to prohibit your access to the Prytany Platform, including without limitation by deactivating your username and password, and cancelling your Prytany Account, and to refuse future access to the Prytany Platform by you.
Additional Rules and Restrictions for Campaign Accounts
The following Rules and Restrictions for Campaign Accounts apply to use by an Enrolled Committee, whether a Registered Campaign or a Registered National Party Committee, of its Prytany Account under this Agreement.
As provided by applicable law and regulation, there are limits to the amount of contributions you can receive from a particular Constituent, which also apply to contributions a Constituent may send using the Prytany Platform.
Representations by Registered Campaigns and Registered National Party Committees that are Enrolled Committees

Resolution Procedures for Unauthorized Contributions and Other Errors
The following terms and conditions apply with respect to all uses of the Prytany Platform.
Unauthorized Contributions and Other Errors
When an Unauthorized Contribution (defined below) or Other Error (defined below) occurs in your account, including Unauthorized Contributions that occur because your Prytany mobile-activated phone has been lost or stolen, Prytany will assist you in notifying the Registered Campaign or Registered National Party Committee of such Unauthorized Contribution or Other Error and requesting that the full amount of your Unauthorized Contribution or Other Error be refunded to you as long as you follow the procedures discussed below. As provided below in Section III.P (No Liability of Prytany for Contribution Failures), Section III.Q (Disclaimers of Warranty; Damages Exclusions) and Section III.R (Limitations on Liability), Prytany's liability for Unauthorized Contributions and Other Errors, and to users of Prytany in general, is limited to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law.
An "Unauthorized Contribution " is a type of error that occurs when money is sent from your funding source that you did not authorize and that did not benefit you. For example, if someone steals your password, uses the password to access your account, and sends a contribution from your funding source, an Unauthorized Contribution has occurred. However, if you give someone access to your account (for example, by giving them your login information) and they conduct transactions without your knowledge or permission, you are responsible for any resulting use. Such transactions are not considered Unauthorized Contributions.
In addition, "Other Errors" occur when contributions are incorrectly recorded in your account. Routine inquiries about your contributions or the status of a pending contribution are not considered Unauthorized Contributions or Other Errors unless you expressly notify us of an Unauthorized Contribution or Other Error in connection with the contribution. Requests for information for tax or other recordkeeping purposes and requests for duplicate documentation also are not deemed to be Unauthorized Contributions or Other Errors. You may request documentation or information regarding your Prytany Account to determine whether an Unauthorized Contribution or Other Error exists by contacting us through the "Contact Us" link on the Prytany website.
You should immediately notify Prytany if you believe:
There has been an Unauthorized Contribution, unauthorized access to your Prytany Account, or the occurrence of an Other Error;
There is an error in your contribution history or your contribution confirmation sent to you by email;
Your password has been compromised;
Your mobile device has been lost, stolen or deactivated; or
You need more information about a contribution listed in your contribution history or contribution confirmation email.
You should regularly log into your Prytany Account and review your contribution history to ensure that there has not been an Unauthorized Contribution or Other Error. Prytany will also send an email to your primary email address on file in order to notify you of each contribution you make. You should review those emails to ensure that each contribution was authorized and is accurate.
For Unauthorized Contributions or Other Errors in your Prytany Account, notify us as follows:
By contacting to us as directed the "Contact Us" tab below; or
By emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
When you notify us, provide us with all of the following information:
Your name, and the email address and phone number registered to your Prytany Account;
A description of any suspected Unauthorized Contribution or Other Error and an explanation of why you believe it is incorrect or why you need more information to identify the transaction; and
The dollar amount of any suspected Unauthorized Contribution or Other Error.
During the course of our investigation, we may request additional information from you.
Prytany Actions After Receipt of your Notification
Once you notify us of any suspected Unauthorized Contribution or Other Error, or we otherwise learn of one, we will do the following:
We will conduct an investigation to determine whether there has been an Unauthorized Contribution or Other Error.
We will complete our investigation within 10 Business Days of the date we received your notification of the suspected Unauthorized Contribution or Other Error. If your account is new (the first contribution from your account was less than 30 Business Days from the date you notify us), we may take up to 20 Business Days to complete this investigation. If we need more time, we may take up to 45 days to complete our investigation (or up to 90 days for new accounts). We will inform you of our decision within 3 Business Days after completing our investigation.
If we decide that there was not an Unauthorized Contribution or Other Error, we will include an explanation of our decision in our email or other communications to you. You may request copies of the documents that we used in our investigation.
In connection with your use of our website, your Prytany Account, or the Prytany Platform, or in the course of your interactions with Prytany, another user of Prytany or a third party, you will not:

If Prytany incurs any damages because you breach this Agreement, violate our Code of Conduct (which may be found on the home page of our website athttps://www.prytany.com/code-of-conduct) or other policies, break any laws, or otherwise cause Prytany to suffer any damages or incur any expenses then we may take legal action against you to recover our losses, investigation costs, fines, or legal fees we may incur. You are responsible for all reversals, chargebacks, claims, fees, fines, penalties and other liability incurred by Prytany, a Prytany user, or a third party caused by or arising out of your breach of this Agreement, and/or your use of the Prytany Platform. You agree to reimburse Prytany, a user, or a third party for any and all such liability.
You acknowledge that you are responsible for the accuracy of all contributions made using the Prytany Platform, including but not limited to the accuracy of the amount paid and the recipient. Prytany shall not be responsible or in any way held liable due to inaccurate payment of contributions, including but not limited to making a contribution in the wrong amount or to the wrong Registered Campaign or Registered National Party Committee.
Actions by Prytany
If we have reason to believe that you have engaged in any restricted activities, made excessive or unexplainable transactions, violated any parts of this Agreement, violated Prytany's Code of Conduct, or provided any incorrect information, we may take various actions to protect Prytany, another Prytany user, a third party, or you.

If we limit or close your Prytany Account or terminate your use of the Prytany Platform for any reason, you may contact us and request restoration of access if appropriate.

First, if we reasonably believe that you have in any manner violated or threatened to violate our intellectual property rights, we may seek injunctive or other appropriate relief in any court of competent jurisdiction. Second, any claim of $500 or less may, at the option of the claiming party, be resolved in small claims court in Washington, D.C., if the claim and the parties are within the jurisdiction of the small claims court.

Waiver of Right to Jury; Class Action Waiver
TO THE EXTENT ALLOWED BY LAW, YOU AGREE TO IRREVOCABLY WAIVE ANY RIGHT YOU MAY HAVE TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR OTHER COURT TRIAL (OTHER THAN SMALL CLAIMS COURT) OR TO SERVE AS A REPRESENTATIVE, AS A PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL, OR IN ANY OTHER REPRESENTATIVE CAPACITY, OR TO PARTICIPATE AS A MEMBER OF A CLASS OF CLAIMANTS, IN ANY LAWSUIT, ARBITRATION OR OTHER PROCEEDING FILED AGAINST US AND/OR RELATED THIRD PARTIES.
No Liability of Prytany for Contribution Failures
Prytany will not be liable if a contribution made using the Prytany Platform is not completed or made on time or in the correct amount except to the extent required by law. Prytany will not be liable:
If, through no fault of Prytany's, you do not have enough money in your bank account or sufficient credit remaining on your credit card to make the intended contribution;
If the funds in your bank account are subject to legal process or other encumbrance restricting their use;
If the Prytany Platform was not working properly through no fault of Prytany;
If the failure results from a failure of the financial institution that issued your credit card or debit card, or Prytany is unable to access your credit card;
If you provided inaccurate or incomplete information regarding the contribution;
If the contribution appears suspicious, fraudulent, or unauthorized, and Prytany cannot confirm that it is a legitimate contribution, or if your Prytany Account or the account of the Registered Campaign or Registered National Party Committee receiving the contribution is under investigation by Prytany or if the contribution is or appears to be prohibited by any applicable law or rules.
Disclaimers of Warranty; Damages Exclusions
Unless otherwise prohibited by law, you assume all responsibility for your use of the Prytany Platform and use it at your own risk. To the fullest extent permissible under applicable law, all such representations, warranties, guarantees and conditions are disclaimed, including, but not limited to, any implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, title, noninfringement of intellectual property rights, or other terms which might otherwise be implied by statute, common law or in equity. Prytany LLC does not warrant that the Prytany Platform will be uninterrupted or error-free, that defects will be corrected, or that the Prytany Platform, or the servers that process information for the Prytany Platform, are free of viruses, bugs or other harmful components. On behalf of Prytany LLC, Covered Third Parties, and each of our respective affiliates, vendors, agents and suppliers, Prytany LLC makes the following disclaimers set forth in this section: the Prytany Platform is provided on an "as is", "as available" and "with all faults" basis, without any representations, warranties, guarantees, or conditions of any kind, express, implied or statutory, including, but not limited to, any warranty as to the use or operation of the Prytany Platform, or the information, content or other materials related to the Prytany Platform, whether provided by Prytany LLC, any third party, or any of the Covered Third Parties. Neither Prytany LLC, nor any third party, nor any of the Covered Third Parties warrant nor make any representations regarding the use or the results of the use of the Prytany Platform in terms of correctness, accuracy, timeliness, reliability, or otherwise. You assume the entire cost of all necessary maintenance, repair, or correction to any equipment you use in accessing the Prytany Platform, including, but not limited to, your mobile phone or other device.
PRYTANY LLC IS NOT LIABLE FOR THE CONSEQUENCES OF YOU CHOOSING TO SHARE ANY CONTRIBUTION OR PLEDGE DETAILS ON SOCIAL MEDIA OR WITHIN THE PRYTANY PLATFORM, AND YOU AGREE TO HOLD PRYTANY LLC HARMLESS AND INDEMNIFY PRYTANY LLC FROM ANY LIABILITY arising from the actions or inactions of any external social media network in connection with the permissions you grant to the external social media network.
None of Prytany LLC, any third party (including, without limitation, the Covered Third Parties, or any of their respective affiliates, vendors, agents or suppliers) will be liable for, and you agree not to seek against any of the foregoing, any damages of any kind arising from the use of the Prytany Platform, including, but not limited to, indirect, special, incidental, punitive, exemplary, consequential damages or damages resulting from the use of Prytany Platform, loss of use of the Prytany Platform, lost data, lost profits, or business interruption arising out of or in any way connected with the use of the Prytany Platform, any delays in the Prytany Platform, or the inability to use the Prytany Platform, or any portion thereof, whether based on contract, tort, negligence, strict liability or otherwise, even if all or any of us have been advised of the possibility of such damages and even if any remedy fails of its essential purpose.
Prytany LLC does not have any control over any Registered Campaign or Registered National Party Committee that receives contributions through the Prytany Platform or the associated candidates, and Prytany LLC cannot ensure that any Registered Campaign or Registered National Party Committee to which you have made a contribution will actually accept the contribution or that the associated candidate will maintain any rating or otherwise take or not take any action.
Prytany LLC will make reasonable efforts to ensure that requests for electronic debits and credits involving bank accounts, credit cards, and check issuances are processed in a timely manner but Prytany LLC makes no representations or warranties regarding the amount of time needed to complete processing because Prytany is dependent upon many factors outside of our control, such as delays in the banking system or the U.S. mail service.
SOME STATES OR OTHER JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE DISCLAIMER OF IMPLIED WARRANTIES OR THE EXCLUSION OF CERTAIN DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE DISCLAIMERS AND EXCLUSIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. YOU MAY ALSO HAVE OTHER RIGHTS THAT VARY FROM STATE TO STATE AND JURISDICTION TO JURISDICTION.
Limitations on Liability
Except as otherwise EXPRESSLY provided in this Agreement, and to the extent permissible under applicable law, Prytany LLC's cumulative liability to you for any claims or damages arising out of or related to your use of the Prytany Platform for which Prytany is found liable shall not exceed the amount of the fees you paid to Prytany LLC (ie., excluding third party fees you paid) for your use of the Prytany Platform during the twelve months immediately preceding the month in which your claim occurred.
These limitations on liability apply to: anything related to the Prytany Platform or any application or content made available through the Prytany Platform; and claims for breach of contract, breach of warranty, guarantee or condition, strict liability, negligence, or other tort to the extent permitted by applicable law. These limitations on liability also apply even if a refund of the contribution does not fully compensate you for any losses; or Prytany LLC, any third party (including, without limitation, any Covered Third Party) knew or should have known about the possibility of the damages.
These limitations on liability will apply to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, even if any remedy fails of its essential purpose.
Some states or other jurisdictions do not allow the limitation of liability so the foregoing limitations may not apply to you. You may also have other rights that vary from state to state and jurisdiction to jurisdiction.
Indemnification and Release of Prytany
You agree to defend, indemnify and hold harmless Prytany LLC and its affiliates, officers, directors and employees from any claim or demand (including any damages, losses, expenses and attorney's fees resulting therefrom) made or incurred by any third party due to or arising out of your breach of this Agreement and/or your use of the Prytany Platform.
If you have a dispute with one or more Registered Campaigns or Registered National Party Committees relating to your contributions, Prytany LLC is not responsible for any such dispute and you hereby release Prytany LLC (and our officers, directors, agents, joint ventures and employees) from any and all claims, demands and damages (actual and consequential) of every kind and nature arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes.
Assumption of Rights
If Prytany LLC makes a payment to you for a claim, reversal or chargeback that you file with us against a recipient of your contribution, you agree that Prytany LLC assumes your rights against the recipient and third parties related to the contribution, and may pursue those rights directly or on your behalf, in Prytany LLC's discretion.
Modification of Terms

By using the Prytany Platform after a new Agreement has been posted, you agree to the revised Agreement.
In the event of termination of this Agreement or the Prytany Platform, the terms in this Agreement that by their nature are continuing shall survive such termination, including but not limited to the disclaimers and limitations of liabilities.
We shall not be liable for any delay or failure in the performance or in delivery or shipment of materials, or for any damages suffered by you by reason of such delay or failures, directly or indirectly caused by or in any manner arising from or connected with acts of God, acts of public enemies, riots, strikes, acts of governmental agencies, labor difficulties, failure of our power, telecommunications or other suppliers, delays in securing or shortages of raw materials, breakdown or destruction of any system or equipment, or any other cause or causes beyond our control, whether or not similar to those enumerated herein.
The parties agree they are independent contractors to each other in performing their respective obligations hereunder. Nothing in this Agreement or in the working relationship being established and developed hereunder shall be deemed or is intended to be deemed, nor shall it cause, the parties to be treated as partners, joint venturers, or otherwise as joint associates for profit.
