All graphics, logos, page headers, button icons, scripts, and service names appearing on the Site
are trademarks or trade dress of CharityData.org or its subsidiaries.
CharityData.org's trademarks and trade dress may not be used in connection with any product
or service that is not CharityData.org's, in any manner that is likely to cause confusion among
customers, or in any manner that disparages or discredits CharityData.org.

A new user may be invited to use an Evaluation Membership, which is only intended to demonstrate
the features of CharityData.org.
The Evaluation Membership may be terminated at any time by CharityData.org, at which time
the user will be unable to access their Administration Website.
A user may optionally purchase a Premium Membership Subscription, which offers features that are not included with a free membership.
Although the user may cancel a paid subscription at any time, each period of a paid subscription is non-refundable after the user has paid for that period.
For example: If a user purchases a 3-month subscription on February 1, and then they cancel the subscription on April 1, then they will not be charged on May 1,
but they will not receive any refund for the 30 days from April 1 to May 1.
A paid subscription does not include any merchandise or shipment whatsoever.
Therefore, the user may not use "failure to receive merchandise" as a reason to request a refund or chargeback,
and the Site shall not be required to provide any shipping or tracking information in response to a request for a refund or chargeback.
Premium Members (i.e. paid subscribers) may have their Banner Ad displayed on 8 of our websites.
Each Premium Member's ad is rotated with the ads for the other Premium Members. For example, if there are 100 Premium Members, then each Premium Member's ad would be displayed 1 out of every 100 times
that any of our 8 websites are shown.
A Banner Ad will appear on the 8 websites the day after the Premium Member has created or edited their Banner Ad on their Administration page.
The Banner Ad's content must be appropriate for the websites that it will be displayed on.
At their sole discretion, the Site may reject any Banner Ad for any reason whatsoever.
Our 8 websites are listed here.
