For more information, see our website: http://www.aidonic.io (the “Website”). Our Platform is available via the “Web Portal” https://app.aidonic.io/.

These Conditions apply to all use of the Platform and any other dealings between AIDONIC and its Users and any services by AIDONIC (all of this use, dealings and services is defined as the “Services”). AIDONIC offers its Services on the condition that the User accepts these Conditions. By making use of the Services, you agree to and accept to be bound by these Conditions. AIDONIC may amend these Conditions from time to time at its own discretion. By continuing to making use of the Services, you agree to and accept to be bound by the latest version of the Conditions. The latest version of the Conditions always applies between AIDONIC and the User.

  • Definitions

Insofar not defined in these Conditions, the following terms when capitalized in these Conditions shall have the following meaning:

  • AIDONIC: AIDONIC AG, a stock company under Swiss law, having its registered office in Baar (Zug, Switzerland) at Blumenweg 9, 6340 Baar, Switzerland, and registered in the commercial register of the Kanton Zug under number CHE-419.084.892. Also referred to as “we”, “us”, “our”.
  • User: any legal entity or natural person that makes use of the Services, including Verified Organisations (as defined below), Individual Beneficiaries (as defined below), Local Service Providers (as defined below), Donors (as defined below), Implementing Partners (as defined below) and Ambassadors (as defined below). Also referred to as “you” and “your”.
  • Parties: AIDONIC and the User, together.
  • AIDONIC: How does it work?
    • AIDONIC provides the Platform, a social crowddonating and digital aid distribution technology platform for humanitarian aid and development programs. Our goal is to efficiently get the help directly into the hand of those in need in the most transparent and accountable way.
    • Via the Platform non-governmental charitable organisations (“Verified Organisation”) can campaign and raise donations for projects to benefit a specific social, community or charitable cause (a “CrowddonatingCampaign“), in the context of which aid is distributed (the “Aid”) for which a digital “Campaign Page” is created on the Platform. Furthermore, Verified Organisation may also use the Platform in order to distribute Aid without raising donations through the Platform (a “Self-Funding-Campaign”). The Crowddonating-Campaign and the Self-Funding-Campaign are hereinafter collectively referred to as the “Campaign”).
    • The Verified Organisation determines and defines the beneficiaries of the Campaign (the “Beneficiaries”). The Beneficiaries may be defined as a certain group (e.g. refugees of a specific camp) as well as individually named (“Individual Beneficiaries”). Individual Beneficiaries are enabled to become a User and make use of the Platform. Verified Organisations and Local Service Providers (as defined below) are allowed to assign a Beneficiary.
    • The Verified Organisation further determines and defines the form in which the Aid is distributed. Such Aid may be distributed through the use of local service providers (e.g. supermarket or pharmacy, the “Local Service Providers”) or through other means (e.g. through the distribution of products or medical aid by the Verified Organisations and/or Local Service Providers directly). In any case, Vouchers (see clause 2) can only be redeemed by the Local Service Providers. Each User can only register one role.
    • Finally, the Verified Organisation may determine a minimum and maximum value of Donations required for a particular Crowddonating-Campaign to take place (the “(Campaign) Target”) and a fundraising period for which Donations can be made for a Crowddonating-Campaign as the “Fundraising Period”.
    • The Verified Organisation may make use of local implementing partners or other third parties for the distribution of the Aid (“Implementing Partners”). The Implementing Partners will directly use the Platform. They fulfil the same role as the Verified Organisation except for creating Campaigns. The Implementing Partners may only create a cause by connecting with a Verified Organisation through the Platform. The Verified Organisation is responsible for the due diligence on the Implementing Partner. Once the Implementing Partner is verified and approved by the Verified Organisation, the Verified Organisation can raise funds under a new Crowddonating-Campaign for that cause.
    • Natural persons and organisations (“Donors”) can donate money (“Donation“) to support the Crowddonating-Campaigns.
    • Ambassadors” fulfil the role of a charitable influencer. They can mobilize their network to help people in need, raise awareness about the Platform, Campaigns and causes and promote organisations related to AIDONIC to their followers or network, through the Platform.

Changes to and cancellations of Donations

  • AIDONIC cannot guarantee the Verified Organisations to receive Donations made to a Crowddonating-Campaign, even after the Crowddonating-Campaign has ended and the Campaign Target has been reached – due to the payment of Donations is arranged via the Payment Service Provider, see clause 13. In the event of, among others, refunds, chargeback disputes, fraud, violation of these Conditions or other policy violations, AIDONIC may ask the Payment Service Provider to withhold Donations made to a Crowddonating-Campaign. For the avoidance of doubt, it is in the sole discretion of the Payment Service Provider to withhold Donations. AIDONIC may also seek reimbursement from a Verified Organisation by any other lawful means.
  • A Crowddonating-Campaign can only be successfully finished in the event all relevant Local Service Providers ‘opt-in’ via the Platform that they received the funds and the Crowddonating-Campaign is successfully finished.
  • In case of a Crowddonating-Campaign, AIDONIC is compensated for its intermediary service via the Platform Fee, paid by the Verified Organisation.

The Individual Beneficiary needs to create an account, see clause 7, with the exception that an Individual Beneficiary may be a minor who have not reached the age of eighteen (18) yet.
    • The Voucher may be redeemed once. If the Voucher is redeemed, and the relevant Aid is provided, the Voucher does not include any value anymore.
