Donors may make contributions towards any Cause on the Website provided such donation is in compliance with Indian law, and applicable laws in the jurisdiction of the Donor.
Upon registration, Donors obtain access to certain information about Volunteer and beneficiary of Causes, including means of direct communication. While Lightofgoodhope endeavors to pre-screen and qualify Causes after an involved exercise, such screening or qualification is not error-free, exhaustive or warranted by us. Moreover, it is not a substitute for Donors’ independent investigations after Donor has obtained communication access to the Volunteer. The Website affords Donors an opportunity to ask Patients questions concerning the Cause and otherwise test the soundness of any Cause. By making donation through the Website, each Donor hereby represents and warrants that such Donor has conducted the due diligence that such Donor deems appropriate under the circumstances and does not rely on Lightofgoodhope or its affiliates for the accuracy, completeness or adequacy of the information supplied on the Website. Moreover, Donors should note that neither Lightofgoodhope nor any of its affiliates or employees represent or warrant that Patients or beneficiaries of Causes shall use donated funds in the manner and for the purpose represented by them. Lightofgoodhope is not a party to any Cause. Questions concerning use or utilization of funds are to be directed solely to the Patients and beneficiaries of Causes, not Lightofgoodhope or its affiliates or employees.
