3 How donations are processed on the Platform
3.1 The Platform only registers and records your pledged donations.

3.2 As a charity, receipt of donations, minus any applicable transaction fees, is based upon and subject to the applicable Payment Processor’s terms and procedures.
3.3 Catalyser does not withhold funds for tax purposes or otherwise. Charities will be solely responsible for taxes based on applicable taxes or levies.

Your Company is responsible for forwarding your donations and any matched Company donations (if applicable) to the applicable charity; and

Catalyser is not responsible or liable for the deduction of donations from your salary or wages and the transfer of pledged donations from your Employer to the applicable charity.
3.7 By choosing to donate through credit card, (if this is an available donation method for the appeal):

(c) you understand and accept that although Catalyser does not charge any administration fee, a third party credit card payment gateway provider may charge certain fees to process your credit card donation.
3.8 For Appeals to Australian charities where PPGF is selected by you as the Payment Processor:
(a) your donation will be made to PayPal Giving Fund (ABN 65 105 950 945), a Public Ancillary Fund and charity registered in Australia subject to its terms of service;
(b) your donation is subject to transaction fees of 1.1% + AU$0.30 (such fees subject to change at PPGF’s discretion) and PPGF receives your donation net of these fees and grants the funds to the registered charity you have chosen;
(c) your chosen charity will typically receive funds with 15-45 days of your donation (90 days if the charity has not yet enrolled with PPGF); and
(d) in the rate event PPGF cannot fund your chosen charity, it will seek to consult you before reassigning the funds to a similar cause.
3.9 For Appeals to Australian charities where PPGF or PayPal is selected by you as the Payment Processor, you may in certain circumstances, dispute a credit charge relating a donation. If the applicable donation is refunded to you by PayPal, or if PPGF already remitted payment to the charity, the chargebacks or refunds will be deducted from future payments to the charity, and if necessary, an invoice will be issued to the applicable charity. In such circumstances, the applicable charity expressly agrees that:
(a) It will be responsible for paying PayPal or PPGF the full amount of any donation refund due to you; and
(b) PayPal or PPGF, as applicable may elect to offset future donations to the applicable charity rather than requesting that the charity return the refunded donation.
3.10 You acknowledge and agree that Catalyser has no liability or responsibility for, and that you are solely liable and responsible for, your own tax affairs, including obtaining any tax deduction in relation to donations made through this Platform.
3.11 All your pledged donations will go to your chosen charity. You do not pay any fee to and Catalyser does not make any deductions from your donations. Catalyser may charge your Company a software license fee for using the Platform.
