All refunds will be via a “platform credit” which may be applied towards future meeting expenses. In the case of refunds of “Promotional Credits”, those funds may only be applied towards future platform fees.

a. QUALIFYING ORGANIZATIONS. Business leaders may only designate charities or causes that meet the following criteria: (i) a public charity exempt from federal income tax under section 501(c)(3) of Title 26 of the United States Code or (ii) GoFundMe campaigns that are directed to a public charity exempt from federal income tax under section 501(c)(3) of Title 26 of the United States Code or other charitable cause. For clarity, no politically motivated organizations or charities or causes from which the business leader derives a financial benefit can be designated to receive funds. TIB reserves the right, in TIB’s sole discretion, to reject any designation that TIB believes to violate these Terms of Service.
b. ANONYMOUS CHARITY PAYMENTS. For the protection of the participants’ privacy, each business leader acknowledges that any payments to be made to a business leader’s designated charity/cause will be made by TIB as an anonymous donation on behalf of the participating vendor. TIB will not disclose the vendor’s name or contact information to the charity/cause.
