HOW PROPELLER WORKS
Propeller provides a technology platform (“Platform”) through which users (“Users”) participate in certain activities and earn points (“Points”) that can be redeemed for certain rewards, including additional sweepstakes entries (“Rewards”). Activities are typically tied to certain fundraising campaigns or social enterprise missions for participating charities, not-for-profits, and other tax-exempt entities (each a “Cause”). In order to sustain operations of the Platform, Propeller typically retains a small fee from any revenue earned by a Cause that uses the Platform (the “Fee”) Propeller never charges a Fee of more than 20% of revenues received via the Platform and Propeller may choose to reduce or forego this Fee at any time in its sole discretion. In addition, Propeller uses secure third party payment processors that also deduct their transaction costs. The applicable Cause receives no less than 80% of the proceeds. Use of the Platform is governed by these Terms in addition to the Propeller Master Platform Agreement (“Master Agreement”).
