Terms and Conditions
Section A – Introduction
1.1 Welcome to Crowdbazaar.in. The www.crowdbazaar.in website and the services provided through it (collectively called CrowdBazaar) are operated and owned by CrowdBazaar Services Private Limited
1.2 We may make CrowdBazaar available through a number of platforms, including website, app-based, etc. collectively called the “Platform”. It is currently available through the website located at www.Crowdbazaar.in
1.3 To make these Terms quicker to read, we use a few key definitions:
We refer to any individual, company, partnership, organization, trust, or other entity that is seeking to conduct a
Campaign to raise funds on the Platform as a “Campaign Owners” and their ideas or cause or effort or event for which they wish to raise funds as a “Project” and the campaign proposed to be conducted or undertaken by the Campaign Owner on the Platform for the purposes of raising monies or receiving contributions for any Project will be referred to as a “Campaign” and the page/s on Platform where the Funders will be able to make their contributions and where all the promotional materials (videos, images, information, graphics, etc.) that the Campaign Owners wish to use to raise funds for their Campaign, as “Campaign Page”. The financial aim of a Campaign will be referred to as its “Funding Goal”, CrowdBazaar members/ users who support those Campaigns by contributing funds as “Funders”, their financial contributions as “Funding”, the financial aim or target of a Campaign sought by a Campaign Owner for a particular Campaign as the “Funding Goal”, the maximum period for which Funding can be made for a Campaign as the “Funding Period” and the total value of Funding (excluding cancelled Funding) that a Project has received at the end of the Funding Period as “Total Funds Raised”. Further, irrespective of whether someone chooses to contribute funds or not, they can choose to be a “Supporter” and show\ their support through either liking and / or sharing the Campaign / Campaign details on social media networks. Campaign Owners, Funders, Supporters and other registered members are referred to as “CrowdBazaar Members” CrowdBazaar Members and other visitors to the site are referred to as “Users” or “you”, as applicable.
1.4 Types of Campaigns:
(i) All or nothing: These are Campaigns where monies would be transferred to the Campaign Owner only if the stated
Funding Goal is achieved at the end of the Funding Period. If the Total Funds Received is less than the Funding Goal specified by the Campaign Owner, all the funds raised (except the payment gateway charges in case of foreign Funding) pursuant to such Campaign shall be refunded to the Funders. This is best suited for Campaigns that need to reach a set target of funds before the Campaign can commence;
(ii) Keep what you get/raise: These are Campaigns where the Total Funds Raised would be transferred to the Campaign Owner even if the pre-stated Funding Goal is not met. This is best suited for causes or charitable Campaigns.
(iii) Drop-shipping model: CrowdBazaar also makes use of the drop-shipping model of delivering products to gain market traction, test the market’s response to the products, understand the demographic response for a particular niche and build user base across markets. This model exists separately from our crowdfunding and investing services and acts as a subsidiary to the rest of the services that we provide. A Campaign will be deemed to be funded at the end of the Funding Period: (i) if the Campaign reaches its Funding Goal by the specified date under the All or nothing scheme, and (ii) in case of a Campaign under the Keep what you raise scheme, if any monies are raised, in which event, the Campaign Owner keeps all the money raised net of CrowdBazaar fees.
1.5 We provide a platform for individuals and organizations that are CrowdBazaar Members to raise funds for Campaigns and to contribute to those Campaigns by funding them. The platform allows Campaign Owners to offer gifts or rewards in the form of tangible items or intangible services (“Rewards”) to Funders as an incentive to support and also provides them with an opportunity to build a community around each Campaign by promoting it on the platform and on certain social media sites to friends, family and other supporters.
1.7 By using the Platform Crowdbazaar.in, you confirm that you accept these Terms and that you agree to comply with them.

We provide a technology platform to allow Campaign Owners to connect with Funders and facilitate an agreement between Campaign Owners and Funders for Funding.

We also do not guarantee any Campaign & we are not a party to the contract between the Campaign Owners and Funders.
Other than as specified above, we do not have any involvement in any Campaign or any arrangements any CrowdBazaar Member makes with another through Crowdbazaar.in.

While we make sure that we collect data pertaining to email, personal details & mobile phone data of our Members we do not guarantee that any of the CrowdBazaar Members are who they say they are or that the information they provide is accurate, complete or true. Consequently, we make no recommendations or representations in relation to any CrowdBazaar Member or their Campaigns.
