6. Bribes/Pledges/Donations and Refunds
When you make a donation through our Services, your payment will be processed by our third-party payment processor, such as Benevity or Apple Pay. We are not responsible for the processing of your payment or the handling of your personal information by these third-party processors.
If a bribe is unsuccessful, we may, at our sole discretion, process a refund for your donation. Refund requests must be submitted in accordance with our refund policy, which is available on our website or mobile application.
All bribe pledges are subject to the completion of the bribe challenge by the public figure or celebrity within the allotted time. If the challenge is not completed, the pledged amount will be refunded to the pledger, as mentioned above. However, if the public figure or celebrity decides to match the total amount raised and not perform the bribe challenge, Charity Bribes has the right to release the bribe pledges to the indicated charity.
