Terms of Use

Welcome to the Zariya Foundation, (together with its affiliates, officers, directors, agents, employees, representatives, partners and their respective affiliates, collectively, "Zariya"). This Terms of Use ("Agreement") is a contract between you ("you") and Zariya and governs your access and use of the zariyafoundation.org website and all other websites owned and operated by Zariya that have this Agreement posted (collectively, the "Website"), including, but not limited to, all transactions conducted on the Website and all Zariya services provided in connection with the Website. By accessing or using the Website, you signify that you have read all of the terms and conditions in, and linked to, this Agreement (including the Privacy Policy), and you agree to be bound by this Agreement, whether or not you participate in Zariya's services or activities (collectively, the "Program") or otherwise access or use the Website (in each such capacity, a "User"). If you do not agree with all of the terms and conditions in this Agreement, please do not participate in the Program or access or use the Website.

This Agreement may be modified by Zariya in its sole discretion from time to time and such modifications shall automatically become part of this Agreement and shall be effective once posted by Zariya on the Website (as indicated by the posted update date). Your use of the Website will be subject to any such modifications. You should review the Website and this Agreement from time to time for any modifications.  If you do not agree with any such modifications, please immediately terminate your registered Zariya account, if any, as outlined in Section 9 below, and please immediately stop accessing and using the Website.

This Agreement will be binding on, inure to the benefit of and be enforceable against the parties and their respective successors and permitted assigns. Zariya has the right to delegate, assign and otherwise transfer any or all of its rights and duties under this Agreement. Neither the course of conduct between parties nor trade practice shall act to modify any provision of this Agreement. All rights not expressly granted herein are hereby reserved.

1. Participation in the Program

Zariya manages the Website, which promotes in particular the charity film tentatively entitled MOTHER TERESA (the "Movie") and seeks to collect financial support and donations (the "Program") for the production and distribution of the Movie.

By participating in the Program or otherwise accessing or using the Website, you hereby acknowledge and agree to the following:

Zariya manages the Website, which collects donations from you and other persons (each, a "Donor" and, collectively, "Donors") for the financing of the development, production, and distribution of the Movie. By participating in the Program or otherwise accessing or using the Website, you hereby acknowledge and agree that (a) the development and production of a motion picture is a "high risk" entrepreneurial endeavour; (b) the production of the Movie might to be started for a lack of funding; (c) Zariya makes no representation, warranty, covenant or guarantee that any funds you donate to Zariya via the Website will be repaid in whole or in part if the Movie does not get made and (d) given your financial situation and objectives, you will donate only those amounts that you can afford to lose. Donations made via the Website are philanthropic in nature with no offered rate of return and, as such, are not intended as, and cannot be considered as, an investment in a financial instrument or security.

Should Zariya fail to raise enough capital to finance the production of the Movie within 5 years, or if the Movie is not made for any other reason, all donations shall be forwarded to charitable institutions working towards and supporting Mother Teresa's cause of support to the poorest of the poor.

You understand that Zariya is a non-profit foundation public benefit corporation. Kiva has received exemption from the Canton of Basel-Stadt, Switzerland, as an organization that qualifies as a public charity under Swiss Law. You also understand that you are solely responsible for determining whether you are eligible for a tax deduction for any donation which you make through this website. Zariya has not and will not provide any tax or legal advice to you in connection with any Donation you might make. This Agreement does not attempt to define the tax implications of participating in the Program. If you participate in the Program, you should consult with your own accountants, tax advisors and legal advisors.
