5.3 Campaign creators will receive the specific BUNDUfunder Option Product(s) as initially selected by the campaign creator(s), thus ONLY the options/products offered by the BUNDUfunder and our supporting partners/sponsors will be allowed – NO MONEY (cash) will be paid/transferred directly to any campaign creator or backer.
5.4 The specific production schedule (dates) as well as of the estimated date for delivery of the final products included in the campaign, will be determined in writing before the campaign/project is opened for fan/crowfunding (also view para. 7 below).

6.3 Should a project receives more funds than it’s target amount, additional features and/or products, equal to the extra funds, will be added to the final product.
7. Rewards and what you are agreeing to when you create or back a project
7.1 Anyone who backs a project is accepting the specific campaign creator’s offer.
7.2 When a project is successfully funded, the creator must complete the project and fulfill each reward. Once a creator has done so, their obligation to their backers has been fulfilled.
7.3 Backers acknowledge and understand that when they back a project, they are helping to create a new product and are not contributing towards a project that already exists.
7.4 Backers also acknowledge and understand that there may be changes or delays in the process and that unforeseen circumstances may occur that could delay and/or prevent the creator from finishing the project on time as promised.
7.5 In a situation as described in 4.4, a creator must:
7.5.1 keep their backers informed and constantly updated as to the progress of the situation, what are the actions taken, how funds are used, and what factors are causing the delay or are preventing the progress of the project as planned;
7.5.2 explain to backers how the funds will be used to complete the project in some alternate form if for some reason the planned projects specifications need to be altered/modified.
7.6 Prospective backers should be aware that any funds given by backers to projects will be unsecured. Supporting a campaign involves a degree of risk and backers should not participate in a project unless they can readily bear the consequences of a possible risk and/or a loss. BUNDUfunder does not accept responsibility for the partial or total loss of any contribution or funds given to a project featured on this Site.
7.7 Prospective backers acknowledge that:
7.7.1 BUNDUfunder makes no projections as to the anticipated performance of a campaign/project that are featured on this Site.
7.7.2 the extent to which campaigns/projects will be able to achieve their set targets, goals or objectives within the specified period, may depend on factors outside their control and for which BUNDUfunder does not accept responsibility.
7.7.3 The perks, benefits or products offered to backers can NOT include any form of financial incentives such as cash or repayments, service, or any digital or non-digital product of which the creator(s) is not the legal owner(s).
7.7.4 Anything stated in this Site should not be construed as investment advice or as an invitation or inducement to engage in investment activity and this Site and the communications made on or through it are not therefore regulated financial promotions.
7.8 Unless otherwise noted or specified in the campaign/project description, rewards associated with projects featured on this Site are supplied by the project to its backers directly. BUNDUfunder plays no role in the transfer of such rewards and makes no representations or warranties regarding the appearance, quality, adequacy or suitability of such rewards.
7.9 Once a project has successful been completed, BUNDUfunder will give the full list of backers and their appropriate details to the campaign creator(s). The creator is then fully responsible for delivery of the rewards directly to their backers. However, should the reward includes the BUNDUfunder Campaign Option/part thereof (such as a copy of a video, DVD, or printed product), BUNDUfunder will be co-responsible for delivery of such rewards directly to the backers if specified beforehand on the specific campaign/project page.
7.10 Except for payments BUNDUfunder receives from projects in satisfaction of sums owed to their backers, BUNDUfunder is under no legal or contractual obligation to provide to backers any of the rewards that appear on this Site. By participating in a campaign you acknowledge that BUNDUfunder is not responsible and shall bear no liability should, for any reason, the project fails, whether in whole or in part, to provide a reward associated with a project.
8. Credit vouchers
8.1. In the event of a campaign being cancelled for whatever reason (also refer to para. 6 above), a credit voucher will be issued to a backer for the full amount pledged, but less any bank charges already deducted by the payment provider(s) (PAYFAST or other) on making the initial contribution, to be used to back any other campaign he/she likes on BUNDUfunder or to purchase any product to that value on the BUNDUROCK or the WEF‘s ONLINE Stores.
8.2 Credit vouchers and Gift certificates are non-transferable and non-refundable.
8.3 Credit vouchers must be used by the recipient within two (2) years of purchase. If, after twelve (12) months, the voucher has not been used, a first notification email will be sent to the recipient reminding them that the voucher will soon expire. If, after six (6) months of the first notification email the voucher has still not been used, a second notification email will be sent to the recipient. If, after three (3) months of the previous email being sent, the voucher has still not been used, a final notification email will be sent to the recipient. If the voucher has still not been used, the voucher will expire on the set date and all funds will be forfeited and BUNDUfunder reserves the right to transfer the funds to the WEF (a registered NPO and BPO) to be used for its Conservation Education Projects.
9.1 BUNDUfunder is the online fan/crowdfunding platform of the BUNDUROCK Music for LIFE initiative and as such functions within that framework, vision and mission. Creating an account on BUNDUfunder is free for any accepted campaign creator and fan/backer.
9.2 Each accepted BUNDUfunder Campaign/project include a 7% service/admin fee, collected from successfully funded campaigns at the end of the campaign period. This means that it is calculated and deducted from the actual final amount raised by the campaign which may not necessary be the same as the initial target amount.
9.3 Should a campaign be cancelled, terminated or the target amount not be achieved/over achieved, the rules as indicated in para. 6 above will apply and the 7% service fee will be calculated accordingly. This means that there are NO upfront service fees payable, nor will we collect any fees if no funds have been received for the project/campaign.
9.4 Any change in our fees will be announced on our Site.
9.5 BUNDUfunder uses PAYFAST as the secure payment provider and their standard transaction fee will be directly collected (deducted) from the funds pledged/contributed by backers when making a payment/contribution. This transaction fee may vary depending on the backer’s specific location. Since PAYFAST as well as any other payment provider (bank) functions independently, BUNDUfunder is not responsible for their tariffs nor performance.
9.6 BUNDUfunder is also not responsible for any additional fees and/or taxes payable, arising from or associated with your use of BUNDUfunder (be it as a campaign creator, backer or in any other capacity).
