The term "Campaign Organizers" shall also be deemed to include any individual(s) designated as a beneficiary of Campaigns.

Services: The Services are offered as a platform (the "Platform") to Users of the Services. Among other features, the Services are designed to allow Campaign Organizers to post Campaigns to the Platform to accept Donations from Donors. Although there are no fees to set up Campaigns, a portion of each Donation will be charged as fees for our Services and those of our third party payment processors. Company reserves the right to modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, the Services with or without notice. You agree that Company will not be liable to you or to any third party for any modification, suspension or discontinuance thereof.

By using the Services, you agree that we may communicate with you regarding Company and other entities by SMS, MMS, text message or other electronic means to your mobile device and that certain information about use of the Services may be communicated to us.

Charitable Giving: Campaigns are not charities to which you can make tax-deductible charitable contributions. Any Donation you make through the Platform may be processed by an unaffiliated business partner for which a processing fee (in addition to our FrontRunner Professional Fee) is deducted. You understand, acknowledge and agree that Company is not a charity, and Company does not solicit charitable donations for itself or for any third-party charitable institution. Company is merely acting as a payment facilitator for any Donations.

Company is not a broker, agent, financial institution, creditor or insurer for any user. Company has no control over the conduct of, or any information provided by Campaign Organizers, and Company hereby disclaims all liability in this regard. We expressly disclaim any liability or responsibility for the success or outcome of any Campaign. Donors must in their sole discretion make the final determination of making Donations to any Campaigns.

All Donations are made voluntarily and at the sole discretion and risk of Donors. Company does not guarantee that Donations will be used as promised. Company does not endorse, guarantee, make representations, or provide warranties for or about the quality, safety, or legality of any Campaign. Donors are solely responsible for determining how to treat their Donations for tax purposes.

No Verification of Campaign Information: We do not verify the information that Campaign Organizers supply, and do not guarantee that the Donations will be used in accordance with any fundraising purpose prescribed by Campaign Organizers. We disclaim and assume no responsibility to verify whether the Donations are used in accordance with any applicable laws.

Your Registration Obligations: You may be required to register with Company in order to access and use certain features of the Services. If you choose to register for the Services, you agree to provide and maintain true, accurate, current and complete information about yourself as prompted by the Services' registration form.

If you are under 13 years of age, you are not authorized to use the Services, with or without registering. In addition, if you are under 18 years old, you may use the Services, with or without registering, only with the approval of your parent or guardian. Certain aspects of our Services may also require you to register with (and agree to the terms of) third party service providers (e.g., payment processors or charitable donation processors) in order to utilize such Services. While we may help facilitate such registration in some cases, we are not a party to any such relationships and disclaim any responsibility or liability for the performance by such third parties. We may exchange information with such third party services in order to facilitate the provision of Services (and related third party services).

Public Display of Donations: Donors have the option to publicly display their Donations for public viewing or allow their information to be provided to the Campaign beneficiary(ies). To keep the details of your Donation private, simply click the appropriate checkbox during the Donation process. Please see our Privacy Policy for more information on the ways that we may collect, use, and store certain information about you and your use of the Services.

Payment of Donations: In order to contribute to a Campaign, Donors will be required to provide Company information regarding its credit card (i.e., VISA, MasterCard, Discover or American Express) or other payment method. Donors represent and warrant to Company that such information is true and that Donors are authorized to use the credit card or payment method. Donors agree that a certain minimum Donation amount may apply, and that all Donation payments are final and cannot be refunded. Donors agree to promptly update account information with any changes that may occur and to pay the Donation amount that you specify. Donors hereby authorize Company to bill Donors' credit cards and payment methods in advance on a periodic basis until Donors terminate periodic payments through the Platform.

Fees: Company does not charge Campaign Organizers any upfront fees for Campaigns. Company retains a portion of each Donation contributed to Campaigns in the amount of four percent (4%) ("FrontRunner Professional Fee"). A portion of the Donation is payable to our third party payment processors ("Processing Fee"). Donors acknowledge that by contributing Donations to Campaigns, Donors are agreeing to any and all applicable terms and conditions set forth by a third party payment processor, in addition to these Terms and Conditions. The portion of each Donation payable to and retained by our third party payment processors are:

All Tribute Pay Fees and Processing Fees ("Fees") are deducted directly from each Donation and are not reflected in the amount which Campaign Organizers can withdraw from the Campaign. We reserve the right to change any of the Fees from time to time. If we change any of the Fees, we will provide notice of the change on the Website or otherwise, at our option, at least fourteen (14) days before the change is to take effect. Your continued use of the Services after the change in any of the Fees becomes effective constitutes your acceptance of the new Fees.

Indemnification: You agree to release, indemnify and hold Company and its affiliates and their owners, officers, employees, directors and agents harmless from any from any and all losses, damages, expenses, including reasonable attorneys' fees, rights, claims, causes of action, actions of any kind and injury (including death) arising out of or relating to your use of the Services, any Donation or Campaign, your violation of these Terms and Conditions or your violation of any rights of another. If you are a California resident, you waive California Civil Code Section 1542, which says: "A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS WHICH THE CREDITOR DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE, WHICH IF KNOWN BY HIM MUST HAVE MATERIALLY AFFECTED HIS SETTLEMENT WITH THE DEBTOR". To the extent you are a resident of another jurisdiction, you waive any comparable statute or doctrine




DISPUTE RESOLUTION - ARBITRATION (READ CAREFULLY): You agree to arbitrate all disputes and claims between you and Company (including our respective subsidiaries, affiliates, agents, employees, predecessors in interest, successors, and assigns). Notwithstanding the foregoing, either party may bring an individual action in small claims court. Notice of Dispute ("Notice"). The Notice to Company should be sent to 2501 Parmenter Street, Suite 300A, Middleton, WI 53562, Attn: President, with a copy by email to support@tributepayments.com ("Notice Address"). The Notice must (i) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute, and (ii) set forth the specific relief sought ("Demand"). If Company and you do not reach an agreement to resolve the claim within sixty (60) days after the Notice is received, you or Company may commence an arbitration proceeding. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by Company or you shall not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator determines the amount, if any, to which you or Company is entitled.

The arbitration will be governed by the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (collectively, "AAA Rules") of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA"), as modified by this Terms and Conditions, and will be administered by the AAA. The AAA Rules are available online at adr.org, by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879, or by writing to the Notice Address. The arbitrator is bound by the terms of this Terms and Conditions. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, including, but not limited to, issues relating to the scope, enforceability, and arbitrability of the arbitration provision. Unless Company and you agree otherwise, any arbitration hearings will take place in Chicago, Illinois. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator shall issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based. YOU AND COMPANY AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Unless both you and Company agree otherwise in writing, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. If this specific provision is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this arbitration provision shall be null and void.

2. General Policy Provisions

  1. Definitions

    “Personal Information” includes both “Personally Identifiable Information” and “Non-Personally Identifiable Information”.

    "Personally Identifiable Information" refers to information that lets us know the specifics of who you are and can be used to identify, contact or locate you. Personally Identifiable Information is requested when you register with us, make a Donation, correspond with us, or otherwise volunteer information, for instance, through the use of "Contact Us". Personally Identifiable Information may include, without limitation, your name, mailing address, telephone number, e-mail address, credit card number, and other identification and contact information.

    "Non-Personally Identifiable Information" refers to information that does not identify a specific individual by itself or in combination with other information. We gather certain information about you based upon what you view on our Site in several ways. This information is compiled and analyzed on both a personal and an aggregated basis. This information may include the Site’s Uniform Resource Locator ("URL") that you just came from, which URL you next go to, what browser you are using, and your Internet Protocol ("IP") address. A URL is the global address of documents and other resources on the World Wide Web (‘Web”). An IP address is an identifier for a computer or device on a Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol ("TCP/IP") network, such as the World Wide Web. Networks use the TCP/IP protocol to route information based on the IP address of the destination. In other words, an IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the Web, allowing Web servers to locate and identify your computer. Computers require IP addresses in order for users to communicate on the Internet, browse and shop

    “Sensitive Personal Information” means Personal Information that reveals race, ethnic origin, sexual orientation, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, trade union membership or that concerns an individual’s health.

  2. Notice

    Company shall inform you of the purposes for which it collects and uses Personal Information and the types of non-agent third parties to which Company discloses or may disclose that information. Company shall provide you with the choice and means for limiting the use and disclosure of your Personal Information. Notice will be provided in clear and conspicuous language when you are first asked to provide Personal Information to Company, or as soon as practicable thereafter. In any event, you will receive notice before Company uses or discloses the information for a purpose other than that for which it was originally collected.

  3. Choice

    Company will offer you the opportunity to choose (opt-out) whether Personal Information is to be disclosed to a third party or to be used for a purpose other than that for which it was originally collected or has subsequently been authorized. For Sensitive Personal Information (when applicable), Company will give you the opportunity to affirmatively or explicitly consent (opt-in) to the disclosure of the information for a purpose other than that for which it was originally collected or has subsequently been authorized. Company will treat Sensitive Personal Information it receives from anyone the same as it would treat its own Sensitive Personal Information.

  4. Security

    Company shall take reasonable steps to protect Personal Information from loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. No company is immune from Internet attacks or data breaches. Company cannot guarantee the security of information on or transmitted via the Internet.

  5. Data Integrity

    Company shall only process Personal Information in a way that is compatible with and relevant to the purpose for which it was collected or has been authorized.

7. How Company Shares Your Information

Company shares your Personal Information with third parties when it believes you have permitted such sharing, that it is reasonably necessary to offer services, or when legally required to do so. Company will not share your Personally Identifiable Information with third parties in a way that it thinks violates your privacy. The following non-exhaustive list contains examples of how Company shares or could share your information:

  1. If Site allows you to invite a friend to join the Site or become a User, and you choose to do so, the invitation will contain information that will allow your friend to identify you. The invitation may contain information about other Users your friend might know.

  2. Certain information you provide to Company may be shared by using the Site’s search function. This allows other Users to locate your profile and it allows new Users to find people they know on the Site.

  3. Company provides some public information to search engines. This information allows search engines to locate the Site. It also allows people to locate you on the Site using a major search engine. This does not mean all information you post on the Site may be accessed using a search engine.

  4. There are also times when Company may make certain Personal Information about you available to strategic partners or third parties. These companies may help Company process information, render services to you, manage and enhance customer data, provide customer service, assess your interest in products and services, or conduct research or satisfaction surveys. Without such information being made available, it would be difficult for you to use Company's Site and services.

  5. Company may also share Personal Information when it has a good faith belief it is necessary to prevent fraud or other illegal activity, to prevent imminent bodily harm, or to protect itself and you from people violating the Terms and Conditions of the Site.

  7. Company may disclose analyzed data in the form of purchasing trends or statistical data. No Personally Identifiable Information will be attached to this disclosure.

8. Business or Asset Transfer or Sale

Company may be sold, sell or buy businesses or assets of businesses, or merge with another business. In such transactions, Personal Information generally is one of the transferred business assets. Also, in the event that Company, a line of business of Company, or substantially all the assets of Company are transferred, Personal Information may well be one of the transferred assets. Company will make a reasonable effort to provide notice on the Site, and to notify you via e-mail to the most recent e-mail address that you have provided of any such change in ownership or control of your personal information.

9. Miscellaneous

  1. Privacy of Children


    Protecting children’s privacy is especially important to Company. Company does not knowingly collect Personal Information from children under 13, but because some information is collected electronically, it can appear to be the Personal Information of someone over the age of 13, and will be treated as such by this Policy. If a child under 13 submits Personal Information and Company learns that Personal Information pertains to a child under 13, it will attempt to delete the information as soon as possible. It is Company’s policy to comply with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 and all other applicable laws.

Dr. Alfred Kronthal, of Baltimore, Maryland, passed away on Monday, May 16th, 2022 at the age of 86. He is survived by his beloved wife, Roz Kronthal (nee Goldner); children, Sherri Kronthal, Lauren Kronthal, Lisa (Neal) Elkin, and Eric (Stacie) Kronthal; sister-in-law Joyce Kronthal; grandchildren, Claire Elkin, Cassandra Elkin, Nicholas Elkin, Jacob Kronthal, Henry Kronthal, and Reece Kronthal. He was predeceased by his loving brother, Dr. Herbert Kronthal; and parents, Reba and Jacob Kronthal.

Alfred (“Al, Alfie, Baba”) was born on December 15, 1935 and spent nearly his entire life in Baltimore. He studied piano at the Peabody Institute, attended high school at Baltimore City College and graduated from Loyola University. While studying medicine at University of Maryland, at the young age of 24, Al met Roz on a blind date. Marrying just 10 months later, they’ve spent the last 60+ years as the loves of each other's lives and best friends.
Their early years of marriage were busy raising four children and moving from state-to-state for post graduate studies at Harvard Medical School in Boston, residency at University of Illinois, Eye & Ear Infirmary and serving as a Captain in the United States Air Force in Omaha. After which, he kept his promise to Roz and brought the family back to Baltimore where he set-up his ophthalmology practice.

Al loved his chosen career and practiced for more than 50 years. Equally so, he was beloved by his patients – unwaveringly attentive, getting to know each patient personally and, caring for multiple generations. He also loved teaching: mentoring ophthalmology residents, and fellows, at Sinai Hospital and Wilmer Eye Institute where he was named Teacher-of-the-Year.

More than his career, Al loved being a father and was committed to spending time as a family and sharing his wisdom. But what brought him happiness above all things was his role as a grandfather. He cherished being ‘Baba’ – the joy his grandkids brought him was as boundless as his love for them.

A curious man who enjoyed learning his entire life, Al pursued interests in literature (especially the Great Books), art of all kinds, travel and genealogy. Later in life he discovered the joy of jewelry-making and studied at Maryland Institute College of Art. One of his great pleasures was creating pieces and gifting them to his family and friends.

Al was a devoted husband, father, father-n-law and grandfather – loving his family and friends fiercely. The room lit up when he walked in. He will be sorely missed.

Services at Sol Levinson's Chapel, 8900 Reisterstown Road, Pikesville, MD 21208, on Wednesday, May 18th, 2022 at 12:00 pm. Interment Arlington Chizuk Amuno Cemetery.

I knew Al since I was a lifeguard at the Merc . He was always generous and friendly . I was later able to have a professional relationship as a colleague . If I needed a valued consult on a case ,he was always respectful and generous with his time . Andrea ,my wife, always worked closely with him at Dulaney Eye and had the highest respect for him as a surgeon and a friend . He is sorely missed

Alfred was a "life force" sort of person, a lively loving man with a gracious manner who, after a great career in medicine, created a second life for himself in retirement. He will be terribly missed by all who knew him but his best legacy is the wonderful family he leaves behind.

I was so sorry to hear about the loss of Dr. Kronthal; he was the mensch of all mensches. he was good friends with my late uncle, Jerry, and my parents, Essie and (the late) Norman Levin, always spoke about him fondly. it was not only a pleasure to see him as a patient, but also to bump into him around town; he always gave such a genuine, warm greeting. He will be greatly missed.

No one likes to visit their doctor, dentist, dermatologist, neurologist, etc., but everyone couldn't wait to visit their eye doctor, Alfred. Besides the expert, caring and personal treatment he gave you, you got a chance to visit, catch up, shmooze, laugh and just enjoy his company over an hour or two and some eyedrops. A man who will be missed by many and was loved by even more.

Dr Kronthal was my Father's eye Doctor for many years. We got to know how special he was, when everytime my Dad had a problem, Dr. Kronthal would discuss it with me, and find a way to help resolve the problem for my Dad. All of his patient's loved him, because he always listened to them, and was there when needed. Please accept my condolences on the loss of a Special Doctor, Husband, Father Grandfather, and Friend. May he rest in peace. A Good name lasts forever.

Dear Roz and Kronthal Clan….
I can honestly say that I don’t remember ever seeing Alfred without a broad smile on his face. He was always warm and welcoming, asking about my family and trading stories about his. He was a long time friend of Hap’s, going back to their days in high school. Though you have lost Alfred, he will live on in your hearts forever. May he rest in peace.

Cousin Alfred , someone who meant so much to our entire family. Kind, caring, positive, a real mentsch, that was the Alfred that we knew and loved. Whenever we would see him he showed us that he truly cared about us and asked about each member of the family with such warmth and concern. We felt a closeness that can't really be explained in words. There was a connection, meaningful and special. When we heard the news today we truly felt that the world has lost a special soul. A tremendous thank you for all the years that Cousin Alfred took care of us in his office alongside his incredible, caring wife cousin Rozzie. You will be in our hearts forever. Cousin Rozzie, how lucky he was to have you supporting him and loving him all these years. Hashem should help the family get through this challenging time.
Love always,
Cousins Yossi, Maxine and Yisroel, Meir, Moshe, Hennie, Nissi, Chaim

Dear Roz and Family,I was so saddened to hear about Dr. Kronthal's passing. He was a fantastic Doctor and loved by all his pt'.s. He was always so pleasant and fun to be around in the office-we had a good time together at specialized eye care. I'll never forget how kind he was to me when I had shingles and Dr. Blum was out of town-Dr. Kronthal checked on me everyday! I hope all your love and spectacular memories will guide you through this very difficult time. Fondly, Lorie Butler-Ford-former technician for Dr.Barry Blum and Specialized Eye care.

I was a patient from the 1970s up until Dr. Kronthal retired. He knew my mother from childhood, but I am sure that is not the only reason he treated her with immense kindness and compassion during her devastating and aggressive illness more than 40 years ago. It was because he was a mensch in every sense of the word. She adored him, as did I. Much gratitude and heartfelt condolences.

Roz and family,
My love and thoughts go out to all of you during this most difficult time.
I believed that Al would always be sitting on my shoulder. Though he was there physically, at least twice a year, I often heard him whispering in my ear throughout the year, always accompanied by a chuckle. The twinkle in his eyes and smile on his face were never broader than when he was talking about Roz, the kids, their partners, and of course the grandchildren.
The past 60 years are filled with so many memories and shared experiences between our families.
Al was a role model, mentor, and friend. He touched so many lives and each one was better for their experience of him.
May his memory forever be as a blessing
