Definitions

Service: Raffle Guide is a digital platform enabling organizers to garner funds for their initiatives by securing donations through the Site. It facilitates Users to establish a Raffle Page, presenting their project to potential contributors within a designated time frame (“Lifespan”). This Lifespan initiates on a date specified by the User (“Launch Date”) and concludes on a predetermined date (“Drawing Date”), throughout which donations are accepted. Following the Drawing Date, Raffle Guide ceases the functionality to secure donations on a Raffle Page, however, the User retains access to the website and the data accumulated during the raffle duration.

Site: The amenities offered by the Company are housed within the website raffleguide.com, encompassing all other web domains owned and administered by the Company, inclusive of all integrated subdomains (collectively referred to as “The Site” or “Site” or “Sites”).

User: Individuals who engage with the Service and are governed by these Terms of Service. Users must undergo a registration procedure to avail certain facets of the Service.

Donor: A person who financially supports a User's Raffle via its webpage. Although donors interact with the Site, their capabilities are confined to contributing to a Raffle, without the provision to initiate Raffles.

Raffle: Represents the utilization of the Service by a User for a solitary event or cause. Each Raffle is dedicated to a singular cause, commencing the acceptance of donations from the stipulated “Launch Date” and terminating on the established “Drawing Date”.

Raffle Page: A webpage developed by the User via the Service, affiliated with a single Raffle.

Raffle Content: Encompasses all textual and media elements submitted by the User during the creation of their Raffle Page.
