Definitions: In these Terms and Conditions "Campaign Organizers" means those raising funds, and "Campaigns" as their fundraising campaigns. Additionally, "Donors" means those contributing funds, and "Donations" as the funds they contribute. Campaign Organizers, Donors and other visitors to the Services are referred to collectively as "Users". 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. The Company has no responsibility or liability for the deletion or failure to store any data or other content maintained or uploaded by the Services. To the extent you access the Services through a mobile device, your wireless service carrier's standard charges, data rates and other fees may apply.

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.

Administrative Platform Only: The Services are an administrative platform only. The Company is merely acting as a payment facilitator for any Donations between Campaign Organizers and Donors, and is not a party to any agreement between Campaign Organizers and Donors. 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. Donors are solely responsible for asking questions and investigating Campaign Organizers and Campaigns to the extent they feel is necessary before making a Contribution. 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. Campaign Organizers must register using their true identities, including their name and any image purporting to depict the Campaign Organizer. Registration data and certain other information about you are governed by our Privacy Policy. 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:

        • US Users ONLY: Third party payment processor charges a fee of 2.9% AND $0.30 per donation for VISA, MasterCard or Discover cards or 3.4% AND $0.30 per donation for American Express cards.

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.

However, it does not apply to entities that Company does not own or control, including without limitation, Campaign, advertisers or developers of content. Company may include third-party links on the Site. These third-party sites are governed by their own privacy policies and NOT this Policy.

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. This may include sharing information with other companies, lawyers, and courts or other government entities.

  6. Company may disclose information pursuant to subpoenas, court orders, or other requests (including criminal and civil matters) if it has a good faith belief that the law requires such a response. This may include requests from jurisdictions outside of the United States if Company has a good faith belief that the response is required by law under the local laws in that jurisdiction, is applicable to users from that jurisdiction, and is consistent with generally accepted international standards.

  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. Therefore, Company restricts the Site and all other provided services to persons 18 years or older.

Dear Kathy, LJ, Jonny and family,
I am shocked and saddened to hear of Sandy's passing. We just spoke a couple weeks back and I was looking forward to getting together after the New Year. You know how I felt about him - he was a wonderful boss, mentor, pseudo-uncle and friend. I owe my re-connection to the Baltimore Jewish community to him, as he shared his network of community leaders and offered guidance from his many years of service. Please find comfort in memories you shared with him and the people he touched, including me and my family.

So sad to hear of Sandy passing. What a wonderful man and family! I cherish my early interactions with Sandy, in our scrap metal industry! He was a customer, mentor, and friend. He did things THE RIGHT WAY and with THE RIGHT PURPOSE. Baltimore, and our metals industry lost a great man. Blessings upon his family, and ALL the families and organizations that Sandy influenced.
You will be missed Sandy!

As a lifelong friend of my mother and late father, I feel like I spent my childhood growing up around Sandy. Some of my fondest memories were conversations in the kitchen about Maryland football and basketball with my dad and Michael Lapides. Even when we occasionally crossed paths when I would visit my family in Baltimore, he would always want the full download from me about what was happening in my life. When I learned the news this morning, a flood of childhood memories came rushing back. His kindness and positivity will always be remembered. Truly one of the best.

Dear Kathy and family- my heart broke to learn of Sandy’s passing. I’m so sorry. I feel blessed to have shared an evening with your family earlier this year at a particularly difficult time in my life. He had a powerfully gentle presence that left quite the impression on me.

My message posted before I was finished. What a beautiful service. You are all blessed to have had him as your husband, father and grandfather. I have fond memories of the family Seders he/you hosted and the family picnics at your home. He was a true mensch and has clearly passed that on to his 5 children. May his memory be a blessing.

My name is Mike Zell and Sandy was my little brother in ZBT. It’s hard to believe 60+ years later what a big deal that was. Sandy was the equivalent of the number #1 draft pick and the in fighting to get him as a little brother was memorable. Sandy had it all and everybody wanted him as their little brother. We stayed friends for quite awhile but way leads on to way. A time not to be forgotten was Sandy, myself and 2 other ZBTs went to a jazz concert at The Howard Theatre at 14th and U. We were the only white faces out of several attendees. Not today. The last time I saw him was at the Western Wall in Israel which was a surprise to both of us. It was my privilege to have him as a little brother and friend. My most sincere condolences. Mike Zell

My first memory of Sandy was on Morning Gratitude. His kindness shone through his gentle smile. I always listened for his “amen “ response to prayers. I was fortunate enough to meet Sandy when a morning gratitude Rosh Chodesh was held in person outside of the Soul Center. I felt like it was a privilege to meet and talk to him in person-and it was. He was so easy to talk to. Sandy, I and others will miss you at “morning gratitude “
May your memory be for a blessing.

A heart of gold and a beautiful smile. I had the honor of working with Sandy on various projects at the JCC and then later of seeing him often at the Myerberg Center. He always stopped to find me and say hello, greeted by that 1000 watt smile. Truly a mentsch. May you find comfort in your memories and may Sandy’s memory always be a blessing.

Sandy and I were the two Sandys on Beth El's Morning Gratitude Zooms so we connected with one another right away. Sandy was always upbeat, full of smiles and we all loved his huge 'amens' after our prayers. Although he wasn't able to be with us lately, everyone always looked for him and missed him when he wasn't there. May he rest in peace and may his memories bring smiles to all who loved him

Dear family.
I don't believe Sandy had the word "no" in his vocabulary. He was always trying to help people.
I first met him over 45 years ago when he tried to help Iranian Jewish refugees get summer employment at his business. He was down to earth, sensitive and sympathetic. When I tried to thank him for his efforts his reply was "thank you for allowing me the opportunity to help. It's a Mitzvah!!!" He was the perfect example of a "Mensch". In later years he was helpful to the Shaarei Tfiloh Congregation. Unfortunately, they just don't make people like this anymore! May he rest in peace.
May the family be comforted among the mourners of Zion and Jerusalem.

Kathy and Family,
Sandy was a special person who cared deeply about everyone. I had the great fortune to know Sandy and work with him on many varied projects.

May his memory be a blessing. Nancy and Larry Rosenberg

Dear Kathy and Family,
I was heartbroken to read of the passing of your beloved Sandy. I got to know him at The Healing Services at Beth El and at the Shir Joy Shabbatot. He was a kind and gentle man , with whom I shared many conversations. My Mom was a Shapiro and Sandy & I spent time trying to figure out if we were related. I've missed him since he stopped coming to B.E., but I so enjoyed seeing him when he participated in Morning Gratitude. I really loved him. I hope your many years of happy memories of this truly wonderful man and knowing that so many people share in your sorrow will help you get through this difficult time and bring you smiles in the future. May his memory be a blessing and may Sandy Shapiro for ever Rest In Peace. God Bless.

Dear Family,
I was saddened to read about your loss.
I go back with Sandy many years as a running partner. We ran many a Saturday
from his home with a group, mostly 20 mile marathon workouts. We shared a great time running the Boston marathon and then dragging along on a tour of the city with our wives., I always
marveled that a man his size would play rugby! RIP, Sandy!
a person his size played Rugby! RIP Sandy.

I am so sad to see this. I had the great honor to have served on the JCC Board with Sandy for so many years. He was the go to guy and what he thought was always the answer. He was the epitome of the “Righteous Jew”. I am sorry I will never see him again.

May his memory always be a blessing for the family and all who had the honor to have known him.
