From Woman to Woman is not responsible nor liable for the completeness or accuracy of User content (such as, but not limited to, project descriptions, identity of users, desired project outcomes, project background, etc.).

For jurisdictions that do not allow From Woman to Woman to limit its liability: Notwithstanding any provision of the Terms, for Users in a jurisdiction that has provisions specific to waiver or liability that conflict with the foregoing, then From Woman to Woman’s liability is limited to the smallest extent possible by law. Specifically, in those jurisdictions not allowed, From Woman to Woman does not disclaim liability for: (a) death or personal injury caused by its negligence or that of any of its officers, employees or agents; or (b) fraudulent misrepresentation or intentional misconduct; or (c) any liability which it is not lawful to exclude either now or in the future.

Users may terminate their User Account by following the instructions on the Services, but From Woman to Woman may retain the User Account information after termination in accordance with regulatory, accounting, and legal compliance procedures. All provisions of the Terms that by their nature should survive termination shall survive termination, including, without limitation, ownership provisions, warranty disclaimers, indemnity and limitations of liability.
Users agree that: (a) the Services shall be deemed solely based in Switzerland (the principal place of business and headquarters of From Woman to Woman); and (b) the Services shall be deemed a passive one that does not give rise to personal jurisdiction over From Woman to Woman, either specific or general, in jurisdictions other than Switzerland. This Agreement shall be governed by the laws of Switzerland, without respect to its conflict of laws principles.
From Woman to Woman and User agree that any and all disputes or claims shall be resolved exclusively through final and binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that a User at its election may assert claims in small claims court, if the User’s claims otherwise qualify for adjudication in that court. From Woman to Woman and User manifest their assent to arbitrate by providing and using the Services. Arbitrable claims are those that From Woman to Woman asserts against User, and that User asserts against From Woman to Woman, any related or affiliated entity, and the officers, directors, agents or employees of any of them. To the maximum extent permitted by law, the Parties agree to arbitrate claims on an individual basis only, and they waive any right to bring, participate in, or recover under, a class, collective, consolidated or representative action. The arbitrator shall apply the Terms and the same substantive law to the dispute as a court would, and the same law of remedies. To begin an arbitration proceeding against From Woman to Woman or a related party, a User must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing the claim to From Woman to Woman’s registered headquarters.
Project Owners and other Users should be aware that many countries impose charitable fund solicitation laws to guide direct or indirect fund solicitation activities in those countries. While provisions vary country to country, these country laws typically include registration and reporting requirements. From Woman to Woman merely provides a technology platform to allow Project Owners to connect with Contributors. Users who access or use the Services do so at their own volition and are entirely responsible for compliance with applicable law.
From Woman to Woman makes no representations, warranties or other assertions as to the potential tax-deductible status of any Contribution by a Contributor to a charitable cause or to a Project whose purported recipient is a recognized non-profit organization or other tax -advantaged organization. The listing of an organization via the Services does not necessarily mean that the organization has been deemed— or remains currently deemed—a charitable or tax-advantaged organization.

All disputes, claims and causes of action (and related proceedings) will be communicated in English.
