1.2 To make these Terms quicker to read, we use a few key definitions: we refer to our fundraising project as a ‘Campaign’ for which we are seeking to raise funds and offer ‘Rewards’. Person who coordinates the Campaign is called ‘Campaign Manager’, and people who are seeking to raise funds through offering Rewards as ‘Campaign Owners’. Community Members that support our Campaign by contributing funds as ‘Contributors’, their contributions as ‘Donations’, and the minimum total value of donations as ‘person goal’. The maximum period for which donations can be made for a campaign as the ‘Fundraising Period’ and the total value of donations (excluding cancelled Donations) that a Project has received at the end of the Fundraising Period as ‘Fundraising target’. We will use term ‘us’ or ‘we’ to refer to the project, as applicable. 

1.3 We have created this platform to raise funds for a specific project (development of The Embodiment Portal through which we will stream The Embodiment Conference). This fundraising platform allows us to offer unique items, services or experiences (‘Rewards’) to our Contributors, as ‘thank you’ gifts for supporting our project. Through this process, our Contributors are also provided with an opportunity to create a community by promoting our Campaign on certain social media sites, to family, friends, and wider audience.
