Charity Terms and Conditions
Effective July 17, 2022.
These Terms and Conditions (these “Terms”) covers Charity’s use and access to the services, as set forth in an Order Form, and the Platform (defined hereinafter) provided by Resupply, Inc. (“Resupply”). By Charity executing an Order Form and registering a Charity Account (defined hereinafter), Charity is agreeing to be bound by these Terms. The “Agreement” between Resupply and Charity consists of the Order Form and these Terms.
Resupply may make changes to these Terms from time to time. If Resupply makes changes, it will provide Charity with notice of such changes, such as by sending an email or updating the date at the top of these Terms. Unless Resupply says otherwise in its notice, the amended Terms will be effective immediately and Charity’s continued access to and use of the Platform after Resupply provides such notice will confirm Charity’s acceptance of the changes. If Charity does not agree to the amended Terms, Charity must stop accessing and using the Platform.
1. Scope of the Platform; Access Grant; Services
Resupply provides a digital marketplace (the “Platform”) that provides a logistics solution and connects individuals and organizations that seek to make donations(the “Donors”), third-party services that can transport such donations (the “Logistics Providers”), and charities, not-for-profits, that can accept such donations(for purposes hereof, you are hereinafter referred to as “Charity”). Resupply shall grant Charity a limited, non-exclusive, non-sublicensable, revocable, non-transferable license to: (i) access and use the Platform, and (ii) access and view certain limited data and content that Resupply, Donors, other charities, and Logistics Providers make available on or through the Platform (“Platform Content”)which shall be solely used for internal business purposes.

Additionally, Charity does not contract with, is not a third-party beneficiary of any contract with, and does not have any liability to Logistics Provider or Donor for exercising its discretion to accept or reject the property donation arranged through the Platform. Resupply does not take custody or title of any property donated to Charity by any Donor (whether delivered through a Logistics Provider or otherwise) and does not serve any Donor or Charity as an agent or in any other capacity with respect to donated property. CHARITY ACKNOWLEDGES THAT ITS ABILITY TO REQUEST, AND IF APPLICABLE, OBTAIN DONATIONS FROM DONORS AND SERVICES FROM LOGISTICS PROVIDERS IN CONNECTION WITH THE USE OF THE RESUPPLY PLATFORM DOES NOT ESTABLISH RESUPPLY AS (i) THE OWNER OF ANY OF THE PROPERTY DONATIONS MADEBY DONORS; NOR (ii) A PROVIDER OF TRANSPORTATION, LOGISTICS OR DELIVERY SERVICES OR AS A TRANSPORTATION OR PROPERTY CARRIER.
