You should review this Agreement each time you access our Website. Bell Life Safety reserves the right to modify the Terms of Service at any time and will publish notice of any such modifications online at this site. By continuing to access a site after notice of such modifications has been published, you signify your agreement to be bound by them.
Bell Life Safety, LLC. provides its services (described below) to you through its website (the “Platform“) and related services (collectively, such services, including any new features and applications, and the Platform, the “Services“), subject to the following Terms of Service (as amended from time to time, the “Terms of Service“).
All such terms are hereby incorporated by reference into these Terms of Service (provided, however, that such other terms may be modified in accordance with their terms and, with respect to the use of the Services, these Terms of Service will take precedence in the event of conflict).
Access and Use of the Services
- Services Description: The Services are offered as a platform to users of the Services based in the United States only, which may include Campaign Organizers and Donors (each defined herein) and other registered users of the Services (which may include users who simply “like” Campaigns or otherwise interact with the Platform or Services). Among other features, the Services are designed to allow a user (a “Campaign Organizer“) to post a fundraising campaign (“Campaign“) to the Platform to accept monetary donations (“Donations“) from those wishing to contribute funds to the Campaign (“Donors“). For purposes hereof, the term “Campaign Organizer” shall also be deemed to include any individual(s) designated as a beneficiary of a Campaign.
There are no fees to set up a Campaign.
Campaign Structure: Campaigns will be created for the purpose of obtaining an Automated External Defibrillator (“AED”) device and shall remain active for three (3) months during which time Donations can be received towards the Campaign goal (“Campaign Goal”). When a Donor makes a Donation to a Campaign, he/she will be debited immediately, and will receive an automated email acknowledging the donation. After three (3) months, Bell Life Safety will terminate the Campaign regardless of whether or not the Campaign Goal has been achieved.
- Complete Campaign: When a Campaign Goal is reached, (“Complete Campaign”) the
donations made to the Complete Campaign will be used to provide an AED device to the Complete Campaign. Bell Life Safety will distribute AED device.
- Incomplete Campaign: If the Campaign Goal is not reached (“Incomplete Campaign”), donations made to the Incomplete Campaign will be donated to Bell Life Safety and used for the operation of Bell Life Safety. Bell Life Safety will also use any funds collected from Incomplete Campaigns to fund the donation of AEDs to organizations on a case-by-case basis based on needs and availability of funds.
- Services are a Platform.
- The Services are a Platform: We are not a Broker, Financial Institution, or Creditor. The Services are an administrative platform only. Bell Life Safety facilitates the Donation transaction between Campaign Organizers and Donors, but is not a party to any agreement between a Campaign Organizer and a Donor. Bell Life Safety is not a broker, agent, financial institution, creditor or insurer for any user. Bell Life Safety has no control over the conduct of, or any information provided by, a Campaign Organizer, and Bell Life Safety hereby disclaims all liability in this regard to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law.
- No Guarantee: Bell Life Safety does not guarantee that a Campaign will obtain a certain amount of Donations or any Donations at all. We do not personally endorse any Campaign, or Campaign Organizer and we make no guarantee, explicit or implied, that any information provided through the Services by a user is accurate. We expressly disclaim any liability or responsibility for the success of any Campaign. You, as a Donor, must make the final determination as to the value and appropriateness of contributing to any Campaign, or Campaign Organizer.
- Campaign Organizer Warranties: You, as a Campaign Organizer, represent, warrant, and covenant that (i) all information you provide in connection with a Campaign is accurate, complete, and not otherwise designed to mislead, defraud, or deceive any user; (ii) you will comply with your jurisdiction’s applicable laws and regulations when you solicit funds, particularly, but not limited to, laws relating to your marketing and solicitation for your project; and (iii) to the extent you share with us any personal data of any third party for any purpose, including the names, email addresses and phone numbers of your personal contacts, you have the authority (including any necessary consents), as required under applicable law, to provide us with such personal data and allow us to use such personal data for the purposes for which you shared it with us.
You authorize Bell Life Safety, and Bell Life Safety reserves the right to, provide information relating to your Campaign with donors and beneficiaries of your Campaign, and with law enforcement or to assist in any investigation.
- Taxes: It is your responsibility to determine what, if any, taxes apply to the Donations you receive through your use of the Services. It is solely your responsibility to assess, collect, report or remit the correct tax, if any, to the appropriate tax authority. Bell Life Safety will collect the appropriate amount of sales tax. The sales tax is based on the address information you provide in the Campaign.
- Member Account, Password and Security: You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password and account, if any, and are fully responsible for any and all activities that occur under your password or account. You agree to (a) immediately notify Bell Life Safety of any unauthorized use of your password or account or any other breach of security, and (b) ensure that you sign out from your account at the end of each session when accessing the Services. Bell Life Safety will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to comply with this Section.

We will endeavor to give you notice of any such modification, suspension or discontinuance. You agree that, to the extent permitted by law, Bell Life Safety will not be liable to you for any modification, suspension or discontinuance of the Services in accordance with these Terms of Service.

Toward this end, you agree to the following dispute resolution procedure. If you are unable to resolve any dispute in the ordinary course of business, you shall send a written notice to Bell Life Safety in which you outline the issues in dispute, enclose any relevant documents, and state the requested relief. Bell Life Safety shall respond within ten (10) business days with identical information from its perspective.

If, within sixty (60) days of the first communication, you and Bell Life Safety fail to resolve the matter, you may then proceed to litigation in the forum described below. Any dispute that is not cured or resolved amicably shall be submitted to mediation if a Party has a good faith belief that the Dispute is continuing before a mutually agreed mediator in Clinton, MS; and, if mediation is unsuccessful, then the Dispute shall be submitted to binding arbitration before a mutually agreed arbitrator.
You agree that Bell Life Safety, in its sole discretion, may suspend or terminate your account (or any part thereof) or use of the Services and remove and discard any content within the Services under reasonable circumstances, including, without limitation, for lack of use or if Bell Life Safety believes that you have violated or acted inconsistently with the letter or spirit of these Terms of Service.
