Privacy Policy

These terms of use apply to your use of the website and all associated services. If you browse or donate through The Rainbow Movement, you accept these conditions.

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

We work hard to make sure all information provided by The Rainbow Movement 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. The Rainbow Movement is not responsible for other sites’ content, information collection practices, or use of the information they collect. The Rainbow Movement’s links to other web sites do not constitute an endorsement of those sites or their content, owners, or posters.

The Rainbow Movement encourages third parties and individuals to link to and content posted herein. Such links do not constitute an endorsement by The Rainbow Movement of these third party web sites or their content, owners, or posters.

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

For example: The Rainbow Movement will not permit users to make donations larger than $2,800 to any federal candidate. However, The Rainbow Movement does not track users’ contributions through other avenues (e.g. fundraisers, candidates’ websites). Therefore you (and not The Rainbow Movement) 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
RAINBOW MOVEMENT HAS APPLIED FOR ITS 501 C 4 Social welfare IRS DESIGNATION and donations are not tax deductible as charitable  contributions. Social welfare donations are not tax deductible as charitable contributions.  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
The Rainbow Movement 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. The Rainbow Movement will not consider refunds for other reasons such as a change in political or personal opinion or the cancellation of an event. The Rainbow Movement 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 The Rainbow Movement forwards contributions to the candidate, cause, or committee to whom you choose to contribute, The Rainbow Movement 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 your request for a refund as soon after contributing as possible.

All refunds issued by The Rainbow Movement 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.

Cancellation policy
For your convenience, The Rainbow Movement 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, The Rainbow Movement 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 looking up your contribution on the The Rainbow Movement website, or by sending us an email with your request.

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