      4. Registration and Credentials

 

Registration on the website www.happypot.ch is mandatory to create a pot. However, registration is not required to participate in a pot or submit a refund request. To become a user, it is necessary to complete the registration form accessible from the homepage or when creating a pot. Registration requires the individual to be of legal age and to accept these Terms of Use. During registration, the visitor guarantees the accuracy of the provided data. The user is solely responsible for their credentials, consisting of a valid email address and a password, and for the use of their account. Happy Pot LLC cannot be held responsible for the consequences of a user’s credentials being used by a third party and/or the user losing their credentials. Happy Pot LLC or its payment service provider may reject a registration request, and such a refusal does not entitle the user to any compensation. The company reserves the right to request additional identification information, data, and any supporting documents it deems necessary at any time. The event name, description, and organizer’s name must be filled in carefully, as these fields determine the purpose of the mandate given by participants to the organizer.

 

      5. Participation in a pot

 

Guests can participate in a pot by contributing through their credit card, PayPal, Twint, or bank transfer. The credit card payment platform is managed by the secure PayPal payment interface. By participating in a pot, the contributor authorizes the organizer to use all or part of their contribution to fund the cause described on the pot’s page. Users should only participate in pots where they trust the organizer. Since Happy Pot LLC is not the final recipient of the funds, it only issues proforma invoices.

 

      6. Withdrawal of Participation

 

Participants can request withdrawal of their contribution as long as the pot has not been collected or closed, without providing a reason. To be valid, the withdrawal must be requested to the email address on the site. Withdrawal results in the reimbursement of the contribution amount. However, the commission paid to Happy Pot LLC is non-refundable. The participant is solely responsible for the consequences of withdrawing their contribution concerning the pot’s organizer.

 

      7. Customer Knowledge

 

 

In compliance with regulations, certain users must be identified. In the fight against money laundering, terrorism financing, and fraud, the identity of users exceeding specific thresholds must be verified. Happy Pot LLC reserves the right to suspend any transfer request initiated by a user who has not completed the identification procedure. The company may ask a user to authenticate themselves if it deems it necessary as part of the procedure defined by anti-money laundering and counter-terrorism financing rules.

 

      8. Pot Usage

 

The organizer is solely responsible for the proper use of the collected funds, i.e., the total sum of contributions to their pot. This usage must comply with the mandate given by each participant. The participant declares being informed that Happy Pot LLC is not responsible for the organizer’s use of the contribution amounts. The organizer can collect their pot through the collection interface when desired, requiring password input. Pot collection necessarily involves requesting a bank transfer or Twint payment, with the organizer providing their bank details. The minimum amount for a transfer is one franc. The organizer is responsible for the data provided to Happy Pot LLC for a transfer, and the company cannot be held responsible for incorrect information given by the user for their transfer. In accordance with regulations related to anti-money laundering and terrorism financing, Happy Pot LLC is obligated to identify users who have collected on one or more pots. To proceed with this identification, the user must provide a copy of an identification document. Happy Pot will suspend pot collection until the requested documents are provided. Happy Pot LLC may conduct the same identification for any user when deemed necessary in the context of the fight against money laundering and terrorism financing.
