We reserve the right in our sole discretion to modify any or all of this Agreement at any time, and such change will be effective immediately upon its publication on our Site. You agree to be bound by any modifications of this Agreement as long as you continue to access and use the Site thereafter. Because of the possibility that the Agreement could change between visits, you also agree to check the terms of the Agreement each time you return. Your continued access to or use of our Site Content (defined below) shall be deemed your conclusive acceptance of modifications to this agreement.
You may simply browse the Services, or you may become a supporter of Making Waves Foundation through our Site. In the event you become a supporter of our organization or otherwise provide us with information on the Site, you agree to only provide us with true, accurate, current and complete information. If we believe or suspect that your information is not true, accurate, current or complete, we may deny or terminate your access to the Site (or any portion thereof). Visitors are not required to provide us information, but if you do so, you agree that any such information will be true, accurate, current and complete information.
To make a donation to Making Waves Foundation, you will need to provide Making Waves Foundation with the information necessary to process the applicable payment from you. You may make such payment via credit card or any other manner then available on the Site. By submitting your payment information to us, you authorize us to charge the applicable payment method at our convenience but within thirty (30) days of such authorization. You represent that you will not use any credit card or other form of payment unless you have all necessary authorization to do so. We assume that because our payment options all require a valid credit card, that only persons age 18 or over are making such donations. We will not be liable in the event your children or others acting with or without your permission use your credit card or other means of payment to make purchases on the Site (and to the extent your minor children make any such purchases, you hereby represent and warrant that they are authorized to do so); however, you may report any unauthorized use to us, and we will use reasonable measures within our control to help prevent future unauthorized use of your card. Your donations may be tax-deductible as charitable contributions, but you should consult your own tax adviser. We do not provide tax, legal or other professional advice. PLEASE NOTE THAT THE CREDIT CARD PAYMENT PROCESSING IS HANDLED BY A THIRD-PARTY VENDOR. WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR, AND WE DO NOT CONTROL THE OPERATIONS OF, THIS THIRD- PARTY VENDOR.
