Pro Business PAC “Donor Information Form” Terms and Conditions

These terms of use apply to your use of the ProBusinessPAC.org and all associated services (including, but not limited to, e-mail received from Pro Business PAC, and content embedded on other websites) provided by Pro Business PAC. If you browse or donate through ProBusinessPAC.org, you accept these conditions.

 

Privacy Policy

These terms of use include our privacy policy, which describes how we use your personal information.

 

Accuracy

We work hard to make sure all information provided by Pro Business PAC is as accurate as possible. However, this information is presented without warranty, either express or implied, as to its accuracy, timeliness or completeness, and is not intended to replace any official versions of that information, where applicable, such as information provided by a candidate or government office.

 

Other Websites

We provide links to other web sites, but we can't control what those sites say or do. In particular, websites to which we link may request your personal and/or financial information. Pro Business PAC is not responsible for other sites' content, information collection practices, or use of the information they collect. Pro Business PAC's links to other web sites do not constitute an endorsement of those sites or their content, owners, or posters.

Pro Business PAC encourages third parties and individuals to link to ProBusinessPAC.org and content posted herein. Such links do not constitute an endorsement by Pro Business PAC of these third-party web sites or their content, owners, or posters.

 

Campaign Finance Laws

Political contributions are governed by campaign finance laws. Pro Business PAC makes its best efforts to ensure that all contributions made on the Pro Business PAC site are in accordance with these laws. Nonetheless, you have the final responsibility for ensuring your own compliance.

For example, Pro Business PAC will not permit users to make donations larger than $2,800 to any federal candidate. However, Pro Business PAC does not track users' contributions through other avenues (e.g. fundraisers, candidates' websites). Therefore you (and not Pro Business PAC) are responsible for ensuring that your total contributions through these different avenues do not exceed your contribution limits. If you are in a position to make these kinds of large contributions, please be careful and don't give these campaigns' accountants any more headaches than they already have.

 

Other Laws

Donations to charities (501(c)(3) organizations) and social welfare groups (501(c)(4) organizations) are not subject to any contributions limits. You may make unlimited donations to these groups on the site. Pro Business PAC cannot be responsible for your treatment of these donations on your tax returns. Charitable donations are tax-deductible for federal income tax purposes. Social welfare donations are not tax-deductible as charitable contributions. We will do our best to provide you with all relevant information regarding the tax treatment of donations to the entities on our site, such as what percentage of your donation might be used for lobbying activities (check your receipt). However, it is your responsibility to report your donations accurately as required and to pay your taxes. We recommend consulting your tax adviser or tax preparer if you have any questions.

Refund policy

Pro Business PAC does everything we can to accommodate requests for refunds. We do our best to honor refunds requested for reasons such as input error when a contributor accidentally donates twice or enters the wrong donation amount. Pro Business PAC will not consider refunds for other reasons such as a change in political or personal opinion or the cancellation of an event. Pro Business PAC reserves the right to refuse a refund request for these or other reasons.

All refund requests are subject to the availability of the contribution funds. Because Pro Business PAC forwards contributions to the candidate, cause, or committee to whom you choose to contribute, Pro Business PAC will only refund a contribution if we still have the funds or can recover the funds from the recipient. For this reason, it is of the utmost importance that you make a request for a refund as soon after contributing as possible.

All refunds issued by Pro Business PAC will be credited back to the card used to make the contribution. In all cases where we are not able to accommodate a refund request, we will be happy to refer you to the recipient of your contribution so that you may request a refund directly from them.

Our state of the art fraud detection software constantly monitors the site for fraudulent activity using stolen cards. When our software identifies a fraudulent transaction, the contribution will be refunded automatically regardless of whether a refund has been requested.

If you are with a campaign, committee, or organization that has received a contribution through Pro Business PAC and would like to request that we refund that contribution, please contact us at Lead@ProBusinessPAC.org or leave us a message at (302) 724-8074 and we will do our best to assist you.

 

Cancellation policy

For your convenience, Pro Business PAC offers the ability to make a recurring contribution to one or more recipients using a stored payment method. When you sign up for a recurring contribution, Pro Business PAC will charge the amount you designated to your stored account once each month and forward that contribution to the recipient you have chosen. All payment information is stored securely in our system, and we will never change the amount, frequency, or recipient of your recurring contribution. If you wish to cancel future instances of a recurring contribution or change the payment method used for future charges, you can do so by clicking on the appropriate link in your original receipt, by requesting assistance on the Pro Business PAC website, or by sending us an email with your request to Lead@ProBusinessPAC.org.

 

Re-designation of Contributions

In the event that a campaign or committee (a) fails for 60 days to cash a check from Pro Business PAC which includes your contribution (after Pro Business PAC makes repeated attempts to work with the campaign to ensure all checks are cashed), or (b) affirmatively refuses a contribution earmarked through Pro Business PAC, your contribution will be re-designated as a contribution to Pro Business PAC. Contributions to social welfare organizations that are similarly not cashed or affirmatively refused will be kept by Pro Business PAC and used generally to support its social welfare activities. Contributions to charitable organizations that are not cashed or affirmatively refused will go to Pro Business PAC.
