YAWN… TERMS AND CONDITIONS – King and Crown

FIRSTLY. HEY. WELCOME TO KING & CROWN. SO GLAD YOU'RE HERE!

Boring but super important since 3rd of March, 2020

1. Welcome to King and Crown!

This page explains our terms of use. When you use King and Crown, you’re agreeing to all the rules on this page. Some of them need to be expressed in legal language, but we’ve done our best to offer you clear and simple explanations of what everything means — hence the brief summaries in these blue boxes. The summaries, for the record, are not part of the official legal terms.

Welcome to King and Crown (ACN: 627 914 229, ABN: 88 627 914 229). By using this website (the “Site”) and services (together with the Site, the “Services”) offered by King and Crown Ltd (together with any parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, agents, representatives, consultants, employees, officers, and directors — collectively, “King and Crown,” “we,” or “us”), you’re agreeing to these legally binding rules (the “Terms”). You’re also agreeing to our Privacy Policy and Cookie Policy, and agreeing to follow any other rules on the Site.

We may change these terms from time to time. If we do, we’ll let you know about any material changes, either by notifying you on the Site or by sending you an email. New versions of the terms will never apply retroactively — we’ll tell you the exact date they go into effect. If you keep using King and Crown after a change, that means you accept the new terms.

King and Crown is for your personal, non-commercial use, except as explained in section 4 and section 5 below.

2. About Creating an Account

To sign up for a King and Crown account, you need to be 18 or over. If you are under 13 you definitely can’t use the site and anyone in the middle needs adult supervision. You’re responsible for your account and all the activity on it.

You can browse King and Crown without registering for an account. But to use some of King and Crown’s functions and services, you’ll need to register, choose a username, and set a password (a strong one). When you do that, the information you give us has to be accurate and complete. Don’t impersonate anyone else or choose names that are offensive or that violate anyone’s rights. If you don’t follow these rules, we may cancel your account.

You’re responsible for all the activity on your account, and for keeping your password confidential. If you find out that someone’s used your account without your permission, you should report it to [email protected].

To sign up for an account, you need to be at least 18 years old, or old enough to form a binding contract where you live. If necessary, we may ask you for proof of age.  Registration data and certain other information about you are governed by these Terms of Service and our Privacy Policy. If you are under 13 years of age (16 in Europe), you are not authorized to use the Services, with or without registering. In addition, if you are under the age of majority in your jurisdiction (typically 18 or 19 years of age), 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 like Stripe), with whom King and Crown has entered into contracts, in order to be able to benefit from their services. If King and Crown or one of our payments processors at any time discovers that the information you provided about you or the purpose of your Campaign is incorrect or violates any of these Terms of Service or their terms of service, the Services may be suspended and/or terminated with immediate effect and fines may be applied by the relevant authorities which will in all such cases be payable by you. You acknowledge and agree that the use of third party payment processors are integral to the Services and that we may exchange information with such third parties in order to facilitate the provision of Services as set out in our Privacy Policy.

We may maintain different types of accounts for different types of Users. If you open a King and Crown account on behalf of a company, organization, or other entity, then (a) “you” includes you and that entity, and (b) you represent and warrant that you are an authorized representative of the entity with the authority to bind the entity to this Agreement, and that you agree to this Agreement on the entity’s behalf. By connecting to King and Crown with a third-party service (like Facebook, Twitter etc.), you give us permission to access and use your information from that service as permitted by that service, and to store your log-in credentials for that service.  If you are registering on behalf of a company or organization you are likewise bound by the age restrictions listed above and are in every way legally able to enter into a contract in your jurisdiction.

3. Things You Definitely Shouldn’t Do

This section is a list of things you probably already know you shouldn’t do — lie, break laws, abuse people, steal data, hack other people’s computers, and so on. Please behave yourself. Don’t do this stuff.

Plus, remember, you’re responsible for your interactions with others.

Millions of people will use King and Crown. We expect all of them to behave responsibly and help keep this a nice place. Don’t do any of these things on the Site:

Don’t break the law.

Don’t take any action that infringes or violates other people’s rights, violates the law, or breaches any contract or legal duty you have toward anyone.

Don’t lie to people.

Don’t post information you know is false, misleading, or inaccurate. Don’t do anything deceptive or fraudulent.

Don’t offer prohibited items.

Don’t offer any jobs, services, projects or posts that are illegal, violate any of King and Crown’s policies, rules, or guidelines, or violate any applicable law, statute, ordinance, or regulation.

Don’t victimise anyone.

Don’t do anything threatening, abusive, harassing, defamatory, libellous, tortious, obscene, profane, or invasive of another person’s privacy.

Don’t spam.

Don’t distribute unsolicited or unauthorised advertising or promotional material, or any junk mail, spam, or chain letters. Don’t run mail lists, listservs, or any kind of auto-responder or spam on or through the Site.

Don’t harm anyone’s computer.

Don’t distribute software viruses, or anything else (code, films, programs) designed to interfere with the proper function of any software, hardware, or equipment on the Site (whether it belongs to King and Crown or another party).

Don’t abuse other users’ personal information.

When you use King and Crown — and especially if you create a successful project — you may receive information about other users, including things like their names, email addresses, and postal addresses. This information is provided for the purpose of participating in a King and Crown project: don’t use it for other purposes, and don’t abuse it.

Don’t post projects you are unable or unwilling to fulfil.

If you knowingly post a project that you are unable to unwilling to fulfil then you open yourself up to liability, potential prosecution and fines.  We take no responsibility for the project owners ability to fulfil their claims made on a project.  Donors should do everything they can to ensure the project owner is able to fulfil their commitment before donating.

Don't post jobs unless an actual position is available.

Only post job listings where a position or vacancy is currently available.  In some cities, states and provinces offering positions where no vacancy is available is an offence.  Job listings should also be reflective of the actual position available.  We reserve the right to remove any job postings that are actually currently available or are in conflict with other terms of this site.  All jobs should be aimed at hiring a Christian for either a Christian company, or reflective of Christian interests.  If the position is not specifically Christian that should be stated within the job description.  It should be assumed that anyone applying for a position will be a Christian.  Do not post positions that you cannot hire for, such as in the case where hiring a christian only will be in conflict with the laws of your country.

Don’t apply to a job posting unless you intend to and are able to hold the position.

Jobs posted on this site should and according to the rules above and below, constitute real positions (paid or voluntary), and applicants should applying in good faith with truthful and accurate information with the intention of actually holding the position.  Jobs on this site are posted with the intention that applicants will be of christian faith and belief, for advertised positions where this will likely be a pre-requisite.  Do not apply for jobs you can’t hold.

Conflicts arising on the Site are the between parties, not Us.

You are solely responsible for your interactions with other King and Crown Users. We reserve the right, but have no obligation, to monitor disputes between you and other Users. King and Crown shall have no liability for your interactions with other Users, or for any User’s action or inaction.

Plus, we love working with you, but please don’t stretch the relationship. These are also things we don’t want you to do with the King and Crown brand or trademarks. Play nice. We also need to make sure that the Site is secure and our systems function properly. So don’t do any of these things — most of which boil down to “don’t mess with our system.”

Don’t try to interfere with the proper workings of the Services.

Don’t bypass any measures we’ve put in place to secure the Services.

Don’t try to damage or get unauthorised access to any system, data, password, or other information, whether it belongs to King and Crown or another party.

Don’t take any action that imposes an unreasonable load on our infrastructure, or on our third-party providers. (We reserve the right to determine what’s reasonable.)

Don’t use any kind of software or device (whether it’s manual or automated) to “crawl” or “spider” any part of the Site.

Don’t take apart or reverse engineer any aspect of Kickstarter in an effort to access things like source code, underlying ideas, or algorithms.

Using any King and Crown Content (as defined below), including any King and Crown trademarks, in any manner that might tarnish, disparage, or reflect adversely on such King and Crown Content; using the Service or any King and Crown Content (as defined) to support, incite or promote discrimination, hostility or violence; using any King and Crown trademark or any variant thereof including misspellings as a domain name or as part of a domain name, as a metatag, keyword, or any other type of programming code or data; adopting or using, without our prior written consent, any word or mark which is similar to or likely to be confused with King and Crown trademarks; copying, imitating or using, in whole or in part, the look and feel of the Service (including but not limited to all page headers, custom graphics, button icons, and scripts) without the prior written consent of King and Crown; using any King and Crown Content to link to the King and Crown website without the prior written consent of King and Crown; or framing or hotlinking to the Service or any content other than your own without the prior written consent of King and Crown with the exclusion of embedded project boxes. You are free to use those without our consent.

4. How Projects Work

Most of our Terms of Use explain your relationship with King and Crown. This section is different — it explains the relationship between creators and backers of King and Crown projects, and who’s responsible for what. This is what you’re agreeing to when you create or back a King and Crown project.

King and Crown provides a funding, jobs board and communication platform for Christian projects. When a creator posts a project on King and Crown, they’re inviting other people or organisations to form a contract with them. Anyone who backs a project is accepting the creator’s offer, and forming that contract.

King and Crown is not a part of this contract — the contract is a direct legal agreement between creators and their backers. Here are the terms that govern that agreement:

When a project is funded in any form and to any amount, the creator must complete the project and fulfil, to the best of their capacity the obligations they committed to in the project brief. Once a creator has done so, they’ve satisfied their obligation to their backers.

Throughout the process, creators owe their backers a high standard of effort, honest communication, and a dedication to bringing the project to life. At the same time, backers must understand that when they back a project, they’re helping to create something new — not paying for something that already exists. There may be changes or delays, and there’s a chance something could happen that prevents the creator from being able to finish the project as promised.

If a creator is unable to complete their project and fulfil their commitment, they’ve failed to live up to the basic obligations of this agreement. To right this, they must make every reasonable effort to find another way of bringing the project to the best possible conclusion for backers. A creator in this position has only remedied the situation and met their obligations to backers if:

  • they post an update that explains what work has been done, how funds were used, and what prevents them from finishing the project as planned;
  • they work diligently and in good faith to bring the project to the best possible conclusion in a timeframe that’s communicated to backers;
  • they’re able to demonstrate that they’ve used funds appropriately and made every reasonable effort to complete the project as promised;
  • they’ve been honest, and have made no material misrepresentations in their communication to backers; and
  • they offer to return any remaining funds to backers in a cases where a project as outlined on the Site or within backer communication, can no longer be completed (in proportion to the amounts pledged), or else explain how those funds will be used to complete the project in some alternate form.

The creator is solely responsible for fulfilling the promises made in their project. If they’re unable to satisfy the terms of this agreement, they may be subject to legal action by backers.

5. How Funding Works

This section goes over the details of backing and creating projects — things like how money gets collected, whether pledges can be changed or canceled, and if creators can contact backers to provide rewards.

These are the terms that apply when you’re backing a project:

You will be charged immediately when you contribute towards a fundraising goal.

You’ll provide your payment information when you give to a project and you will be charged the amount you have committed to immediately. As your payment will be collected immediately, not at the time of the project’s funding deadline, you’re donation will be reflected in the fundraising goal, you’re dashboard, on a backers list attached to a project, in you’re receipts section and may be displayed in various other places. The exact amount you pledged is the amount King and Crown will collect. If the campaign hasn’t reached its fundraising goal, you will still be charged (on the date and time you committed to giving), funds will be collected, and money will changed hands.

In some cases we may reserve the charge on your card.

King and Crown and its payment partners may authorise or reserve a charge on your credit card (or whatever payment method you use) for any amount up to the full pledge, at any time between the pledge and the remittence of funds to the project owner.

You can not change or cancel your pledge.

You can not increase, decrease, or cancel your pledge at any time with one exception.  The one exception is that once you have donated to fund the project, you can only cancel or change your pledge by making special arrangements directly with the creator who are directly in control of the payment processor they use.

The Estimated Delivery Date is the creator’s estimate.

Any dates listed on for project completion and delivery is the creator’s estimate of when they believe the project will be completed — not a guarantee to fulfil by that date.  The date of fundraising completion is not a reflection of the anticipated date of project completion. The schedule may change as the creator works on the project. We ask creators to think carefully, set a date they feel confident they can work toward, and communicate with backers about any changes.

The Estimated Human Impact and Gospel impact are the creator’s estimate.

Any outcomes listed on the project at completion and delivery are the creator’s estimate of outcomes, including but not limited to human and gospel impact goals and warrants no guarantee of outcomes.  The outcomes may change as the creator works on the project. We ask creators to think carefully, set outcomes and targets that they feel confident they can work toward, and communicate with backers about any changes.

The creator may need to send you questions to or make contact with donors.

Project owners, in some cases, may wish to send outcomes of the projects as a reward, the creator might need information from you, like your mailing address or t-shirt size.  As an example, Project Owners may wish to send backers a copy of an album they recorded as a result of the donations they received. They’ll request that information after the campaign has succeeded. To receive the reward, you’ll need to provide the information in a reasonable amount of time. Creators should not ask for personal information that is not necessary to provide your reward, and should never request sensitive personal information such as your Social Security number, Tax File Number or payment information. Contact us at [email protected] if you receive a request for information that seems inappropriate or excessive.  Rewards such as these are the exception, not the rule and Creators are under no obligation to offer incentives or rewards.  Likewise, donors are under no obligation to receive rewards if they are offered.

King and Crown doesn’t offer refunds.

Responsibility for finishing a project lies entirely with the project creator. King and Crown doesn’t hold funds on a creators’ behalf, cannot guarantee creators’ work, and does not offer refunds.

These are the terms that apply when you’re creating a project:

You can refund individual pledges if you want.

After your project has been funded, you can cancel and refund a backer’s pledge at any time. If you do, you have no further obligation to that specific backer, and no agreement exists between you.

We’ll charge our fees, from the donated amount, before putting funds in your account.

King and Crown and its payment partners will subtract fees before transmitting the proceeds of a campaign.  These fees are charged immediately and are taken directly from the donated amount at the time it is given and charged to the backers account.  These various charges will appear as a single charge on the backers account.  Only the donated amount, less fees – platform and payment partner, will be transacted to the creators account.

Some pledges can’t be collected, which might reduce the amount of funding you get.

Because some payments can’t be collected — for instance, when a backer’s credit card expires before funding ends (especially in the case of pledge or on-going giving), and they don’t provide updated information — we can’t guarantee that the amount of funding you receive will be exactly equal to the full amount pledged minus fees.  If you become aware that there is an issue, please contact [email protected] and we will see if we can get access to more information or alert the card holder.

We'll help resolve payment-card disputes.

If a backer of your project disputes the charge with their card issuer, we’ll handle re-presenting the charge to settle the dispute with the card issuer. You’ll be notified that a dispute has been filed, and you’ll be able to provide evidence to help us resolve it in your favor. If the cardholder’s dispute is found valid, you authorise us to charge the credit card number you provided when you started your project for the amount of the chargeback.

Don’t count your chickens before they hatch.

Don’t assume you’ll be able to launch your project when you want; there could be a reason we’re not able to accept it, or a problem that takes time to resolve. Don’t assume you’ll be able to immediately collect your funding; there may be a delay between the end of a successful donation and your access to the funds including but not limited to payment provider clearing time. And don’t take any actions in reliance on collecting any of the money pledged until you actually have the ability to withdraw it from your account and spend it.

6. How Jobs Ads Work

This section relates to your obligations as a job advertiser, fees, charges, content of the job advertisement and how real the job is. Basically you should only post a job if you actually intend to employ someone. If you want to advertise your company and how great it is, there are other places for that.

Also, we have the right to use any information that was submitted to you in relation to jobs you post, including CV’s etc to make the Site better.

Oh yeah, don’t do bad things with applicants data. Respect their privacy!

Obligations & Privacy

You may not use any feature of the Site to send any unsolicited commercial electronic messages to candidates, whether individually or as a group. Candidate management tools may only be used to communicate with candidates in accordance with the Product Terms.
Any “personal information” (within the meaning of the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth)) of any candidate that you obtain through your use of the Site or any features of the Site or products offered on the Site (including job applications received from candidates) must only be used by you in relation to your genuine employment and/or recruitment activities.
Selling or offering services or products (such as learning or educational courses or tools) to candidates whose personal information you have obtained through your use of the Site (including job applications received from candidates) is considered by King and Crown to be a misuse of candidate data, and is prohibited.
You may not under any circumstances provide any candidate personal information you have obtained through your use of the Site (including job applications received from candidates) to any other party, including to any affiliate or related party of yours (unless King and Crown has otherwise consented to this). This restriction on forwarding personal information applies irrespective of whether you receive direct financial benefit for doing so.
King and Crown takes its obligations under the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) extremely seriously, and is resolute in its determination to prevent the misuse of candidate data. If King and Crown believes that you have misused candidate data for any reason, We reserves the right to take appropriate action against you such as terminating your account, reporting to relevant authorities and seeking damages.

Placing Advertisements

You must ensure that all advertisements posted to the Site comply with all applicable legislation, regulations, by-laws, ordinances and codes of conduct, including but not limited to the:

  • Competition and Consumer Act 2010 (Cth) including but not limited to section 31 of Schedule 2 which requires that if you are a company you must not mislead persons seeking employment as to the availability, nature, terms or conditions or, any other matter relating to the employment opportunity being offered;
  • Fair Trading Act’s in all applicable States and Territories;
  • Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) including the Australian Privacy Principles;
  • Estate Agent Acts in all applicable States and Territories; and
  • Human Rights and Equal Opportunity Commission Act 1986 (Cth); and
  • all anti-discrimination and equal opportunity legislation applicable in the State or Territory in which you do business.
You must adhere to the principle of honest representation in advertising set out in the RCSA’s Code For Professional Practice.
We reserve the right to remove any job ads that are in conflict with the faith beliefs as promoted by this site.
You are not permitted to insert links to an external website or an externally hosted application form.  Similarly, you are not permitted to promote or refer to brands other than those associated with your business, (or a business operated by a related party to you):
  • within the details of a job ad (including from the apply functions);
  • from within King and Crown’s job application process;
  • within or from a previously approved externally hosted application form; or
  • within an employer/company profile; or
  • within any communications with a candidate via Search.

You may only post Advertisements to the Site that are in respect of a genuine, paid employment opportunity that is current as at the time of posting the Advertisement, and for which you are currently recruiting. King and Crown reserves the right to request any information from you that it deems necessary to verify that a genuine, paid employment opportunity exists.

You must ensure that advertisements posted to the Site are posted to the appropriate category of the Site. It is your responsibility to ensure that you familiarise yourself with the advertising requirements of each available category on the Site to ensure appropriate placement of advertisements.

Advertisers acknowledge and agree that they must only advertise one job role per job advertisement (except in the case of volunteers whose roles are indistinguishable) posted on to the King and Crown Site. Where Advertisers have breached this obligation and have advertised multiple job roles in the one job advertisement, King and Crown reserves the right to charge the Advertiser for the number of job roles advertised in the one job advertisement posted on to the King and Crown Site.

Advertisers must ensure that all information entered into any data entry field, as part of the advertisement classification process, relates directly to the relevant data field category. King and Crown reserves the right to amend, alter or remove any information that does not meet this requirement.

King and Crown reserves the right and Advertisers must accept as a condition of advertising on the Site, King and Crown’s right to re-classify advertisements posted to the Site, entitling King and Crown to withdraw advertisements from one category of its Site and to re-publish advertisements in another category on the Site.

Standard job advertisements are valid for 30 days, although you can choose to expire the advertisement earlier.

The following actions constitute a new/additional job advertisement:

  • copying a job advertisement;
  • reposting an archived or deleted job advertisement;
  • extending a job advertisement (“Extending”) which adds 30 days to the life of the advertisement unless you choose to expire the advertisement earlier and this can occur on multiple occasions;
  • changing a zone classification and refreshing any job posting. Refreshing is the process of deleting and re-posting the same or substantially similar job advertisement;

Extending advertisements on King and Crown will count all new/additional job advertisements against your account and will invoice you accordingly.

Changes to job advertisement body copy and advertisement title or location, work type, classification and sub-classification categories do not constitute a new job advertisement, regardless of the method used to post the advertisement.

Fees and Costs For Job Advertisers

You may not ask or require any candidate to pay a fee, charge, cost or any money whatsoever in connection with the hiring process for any job advertised on the Site (including to apply) whether such fee, charge, cost or money is asked or required of the candidate in the job advertisement itself or in any communication with the candidate that takes place as a result of a job advertisement placed on the Site.

King and Crown charges on a per job ad basis at a rate of $50 per advertisement.  We reserve the right to change this amount at any time.  After completing the job for you provide your payment details and are charged immediately for posting a job by our payment partner (Stripe),  You agree to payment and terms regardless of whether you utilise or fully utilise Jobs services after posting your job.

You are wholly responsible for the jobs you post, finding candidates, accessing candidates and the full process of employment.  King and Crown provides a platform only to connect job posters with candidates in so much as candidates may use our services to search for and apply for jobs.

Besides our platform fees for posting a job, our payment partners also charge a fee.  This fee is charged as a percentage of the platform fee and will vary from region to region.  For more information on fees see the Strip payment platform fees for your region.

The Site provides services to boost and promote ads which may be charged at a higher rate than standard ads.

Any advertisement, paid or voluntary, is charged a platform fee and Payment Partner fee (Stripe).

If a job is reposted after it has expired additional fees will be charged.

Paying the Job Advertising fee will result in a months worth of service for the associated Job Advertisement.

Adding Jobs to Projects or Projects to Jobs

You must only add jobs to projects or projects to jobs that relate to that specific position. Failure to do so may result in a breach of these terms as the job ad may be deemed misleading.

7. How Job Applications work

This section is a list of things about job applications, the jobs you are applying for, what it will cost you (hint, it will cost you nothing) and a reminder about things already covered in our privacy policy.

Applicants Fees for Service

The jobs board service is free for applicants.  You will not be asked or are required by us or Job Advertisers to pay a fee, charge, cost or any money whatsoever in connection with the hiring process for any job advertised on the Site (including to apply) whether such fee, charge, cost or money is asked or required of you in the job advertisement itself or in any communication with the advertiser that takes place as a result of a job advertisement placed on the Site.  If you are asked at any time to pay for services on this Site in relation to a job posted on the Site be sure to contact us.

Information does not represent professional advice

You acknowledge and agree that information published by King and Crown is intended to provide general information in summary form on market insights, legal and other issues. King and Crown does not warrant the accuracy or completeness of such information.

King and Crown does not endorse or recommend any of the jobs, business or self-employment opportunities advertised on its Site and King and Crown strongly recommends that prior to entering into any agreement with any of the Advertisers on the Site, that you obtain your own independent legal, accounting, financial or taxation advice as appropriate.

No guarantees of job vacancy

King and Crown gives no guarantee to you of the continued availability of any particular job advertised on the Site and will not be liable to you should an advertiser have filled the vacancy at any time prior to removal of the advertisement from the Site.  Whilst King and Crown takes efforts to ensure that jobs advertised are for actual job vacancies, it gives no guarantee to you that every job advertisement represents an actual job vacancy.

Our rights to use information you send us

King and Crown welcomes ideas and feedback from you about all aspects of the Site. You agree that King and Crown may reproduce, distribute, transmit, create derivative works of, and publicly display any materials and other information (including ideas for new or improved products and services) that you submit to any public areas of the Site (such as bulletin boards, forums and newsgroups) or by email toKing and Crown, especially in this instance, with regards to your CV/Resume. (Please read our privacy policy for more information as to how we deal with information you send to us.)

8. How Social and Profiles Work

The things in this section are about relate to making the Community Profiles section safe and sound (and hopefully, legal) for everyone involved. This is basically a “don’t be a jerk and neither will we” section.

By creating an account on King and Crown you agree to us also creating you a community account and profile. By using the profile section of the site you agree to the community guidelines. You can disable many sections of your public profile using the profile tools of the Site. This includes profile items displayed publicly and communication for King and Crown. You are responsible for opting out of public display of features within the profiles section. If you are a protected, at risk or threatened person or belong to a threatened people group such as someone within a persecuted church or region where christians are persecuted and wish you profile to be completely removed, hidden and obscured please contact us. We would love to see how we can help you out. By using this platform you agree to the community guidelines, privacy policy, the terms within this document, cookie policy and all other policies now available and should you continue to use the service, all future policies, laws and rules mentioned on this Site.

Your Commitments

In return for our commitment to provide the Services of this Platform, we require you to make the below commitments to us.

Who Can Use King and Crown Profiles.

How You Can't Use King and Crown.

It also includes some photos of female nipples, but photos of post-mastectomy scarring and women actively breastfeeding are allowed. Nudity in photos of paintings and sculptures is OK, too.
  • By using the service you agree not to post content that is anti-church or anti-christian in nature or in conflict with Christian faith and beliefs.

You can end this license anytime by deleting your content or account. However, content will continue to appear if you shared it with others and they have not deleted it.

We can change your username if its offensive.

If you select a username or similar identifier for your account, we may change it if we believe it is appropriate or necessary (for example, if it infringes someone’s intellectual property or impersonates another user).

We can change your username if its offensive.

9. Stuff We Don’t Do and Aren’t Responsible For

We don’t oversee projects’ performance, and we don’t mediate disputes between users.

King and Crown isn’t liable for any damages or losses related to your use of the Services. We don’t become involved in disputes between users, or between users and any third party relating to the use of the Services. We don’t oversee the performance or punctuality of projects, and we don’t endorse any content users submit to the Site. When you use the Services, you release King and Crown from claims, damages, and demands of every kind — known or unknown, suspected or unsuspected, disclosed or undisclosed — arising out of or in any way related to such disputes and the Services. All content you access through the Services is at your own risk. You’re solely responsible for any resulting damage or loss to any party.

10. Our Fees

Fees are only charged on successfully funded projects. We charge between 2-4% on projects and donations and $50-$150 for job ads, in addition to any fees from our payments partners.

Creating an account on King and Crown is free. If you create a project that is successfully funded, we (and our payment partners) collect fees. Our partners’ fees may vary slightly based on your location.

We will not collect any fees without giving you a chance to review and accept them. If our fees ever change, we’ll announce that on our Site. Some funds pledged by backers are collected by payment providers. Each payment provider is its own company, and King and Crown isn’t responsible for its performance.

You’re responsible for paying any additional fees or taxes associated with your use of King and Crown.

11. Other Websites

If you follow a link to another website, what happens there is between you and them — not us.

King and Crown may contain links to other websites. (For instance, project pages, user profiles, and comments may link to other sites.) When you access third-party websites, you do so at your own risk. We don’t control or endorse those sites.

King and Crown partners with other companies (such as Stripe) for payment processing. When you back or create a project, you’re also agreeing to the payment processor’s terms of service.

12. Your Intellectual Property

We don’t own the stuff you post on King and Crown. But when you post it, you’re giving us permission to use or copy it however we need in order to run the site, or show people what’s happening on it. (We generally just use this to promote projects and showcase our community on the website.) You’re responsible for the content you post, and you’re vouching to us that it’s all okay to use.

King and Crown doesn’t own content you submit to us (your “Content”). But we do need certain licenses from you in order to perform our Services. When you submit a project for review, or launch a project, you agree to these terms:

We can use the content you’ve submitted.

You grant to us, and others acting on our behalf, the worldwide, non-exclusive, perpetual, irrevocable, royalty-free, sub-licensable, transferable right to use, exercise, commercialise, and exploit the copyright, publicity, trademark, and database rights with respect to your Content.

When we use the content, we can make changes, like editing or translating it.

You grant us the right to edit, modify, reformat, excerpt, delete, or translate any of your Content.

You won’t submit stuff you don’t hold the copyright for (unless you have permission).

Your Content will not contain third-party copyrighted material, or material that is subject to other third-party proprietary rights, unless you have permission from the rightful owner of the material, or you are otherwise legally entitled to post the material (and to grant King and Crown all the license rights outlined here).

Any royalties or licensing on your Content are your responsibility.

You will pay all royalties and other amounts owed to any person or entity based on your Content, or on King and Crown’s hosting of that Content.

You promise that if we use your Content, we’re not violating anyone’s rights or copyrights.

If King and Crown or its users exploit or make use of your submission in the ways contemplated in this agreement, you promise that this will not infringe or violate the rights of any third party, including (without limitation) any privacy rights, publicity rights, copyrights, contract rights, or any other intellectual property or proprietary rights.

You’re responsible for the stuff you post.

All information submitted to the Site, whether publicly posted or privately transmitted, is the sole responsibility of the person from whom that content originated.

We’re not responsible for mistakes in your content.

King and Crown will not be liable for any errors or omissions in any content.

Your content should be Christian faith based in nature.

King and Crown is Christian site so it should be clear that the content on the site, content you post, jobs you apply for, applicants for jobs and projects on the site should be Christian in nature.  If content you post and are responsible for is not Christian in nature or intent we reserve the right to remove it.

13. King and Crown's Intellectual Property

The content on King and Crown is protected in various ways. You do have the right to use it for certain personal purposes, but you can’t use it for anything commercial without getting permission first.

King and Crown’s Services are legally protected in various ways, including copyrights, trademarks, service marks, patents, trade secrets, and other rights and laws. You agree to respect all copyright and other legal notices, information, and restrictions contained in any content accessed through the Site. You also agree not to change, translate, or otherwise create derivative works of the Service.

King and Crown grants you a license to reproduce content from the Services for personal use only. This license covers both King and Crown’s own protected content and user-generated content on the Site. (This license is worldwide, non-exclusive, non-sublicensable, and non-transferable.) If you want to use, reproduce, modify, distribute, or store any of this content for a commercial purpose, you need prior written permission from King and Crown or the relevant copyright holder. A “commercial purpose” means you intend to use, sell, license, rent, or otherwise exploit content for commercial use, in any way.

14. How We Deal with Copyright Issues

We comply with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act. If you don’t own it you shouldn’t post it. If you do, and we or anyone else finds it and reports it, not only are you potentially liable, but someone is going to ask you to take it down. Imagine if you just never posted it. Waaaay easier.

The Digital Millennium Copyright Act lays out a system of legal requirements for dealing with allegations of copyright infringement. King and Crown complies with the DMCA, and we respond to notices of alleged infringement if they comply with the law and the requirements set forth in our Copyright Policy. We reserve the right to delete or disable content alleged to be infringing, and to terminate accounts for repeat infringers. (We do this when appropriate and at our sole discretion.)

If you’d like to submit a claim of copyright infringement, please visit contact our designated agent for notice of alleged copyright infringement:

King and Crown Ltd
Attn: Copyright Agent
77-83 Parramatta Rd.
Annandale, Sydney  2038

15. Deleting Your Account

You can delete your account at any time. Deleting your account won’t automatically make some content you’ve already posted go away.

You can terminate your account at any time through your account settings. We may retain certain information as required by law or as necessary for our legitimate business purposes. All provisions of this agreement survive termination of an account, including our rights regarding any content you’ve already submitted to the Site. (For instance, if you’ve launched a project, deleting your account will not automatically remove the project from the Site.) You can contact us at [email protected] for additional information or to request project page deletion (this is not available in all circumstances).

16. Our Rights

To operate, we need to be able to maintain control over what happens on our website. So in this section, we reserve the right to make decisions to protect the health and integrity of our system. We don’t take these powers lightly, and we only use them when we absolutely have to.

King and Crown reserves these rights:

We can make changes to the King and Crown Site and Services without notice or liability.

We have the right to decide who’s eligible to use King and Crown. We can cancel accounts or decline to offer our Services. (Especially if you’re abusing them.) We can change our eligibility criteria at any time. If these things are prohibited by law where you live, then we revoke your right to use King and Crown in that jurisdiction.

We have the right to cancel any pledge to any project, at any time and for any reason.

We have the right to reject, cancel, interrupt, remove, or suspend any project at any time and for any reason.

King and Crown is not liable for any damages as a result of any of these actions, and it is our policy not to comment on the reasons for any such action.

17. Warranty Disclaimer

We work hard to provide you with great services, but we can’t guarantee everything will always work perfectly. This site is presented as-is, without warranties.

You use our Services solely at your own risk. They are provided to you “as is” and “as available” and without warranty of any kind, express or implied.

KING AND CROWN SPECIFICALLY DISCLAIMS ANY AND ALL WARRANTIES AND CONDITIONS OF MERCHANTABILITY, NON-INFRINGEMENT, AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, AND ANY WARRANTIES IMPLIED BY ANY COURSE OF DEALING, COURSE OF PERFORMANCE, OR USAGE OF TRADE. NO ADVICE OR INFORMATION (ORAL OR WRITTEN) OBTAINED BY YOU FROM KING AND CROWN SHALL CREATE ANY WARRANTY.

18. Indemnification

If you do something on King and Crown that winds up getting us sued, you have to help defend us.

If you do something that gets us sued, or break any of the promises you make in this agreement, you agree to defend, indemnify, and hold us harmless from all liabilities, claims, and expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees and other legal costs) that arise from or relate to your use or misuse of King and Crown. We reserve the right to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter otherwise subject to this indemnification clause, in which case you agree that you’ll cooperate and help us in asserting any defenses.

19. Limitation of Liability

If something bad happens as a result of your using King and Crown, we’re not liable (beyond a small amount).

To the fullest extent permitted by law, in no event will King and Crown, its directors, employees, partners, suppliers, or content providers be liable for any indirect, incidental, punitive, consequential, special, or exemplary damages of any kind, including but not limited to damages (i) resulting from your access to, use of, or inability to access or use the Services; (ii) for any lost profits, data loss, or cost of procurement or substitute goods or services; or (iii) for any conduct of content of any third party on the Site. In no event shall King and Crown’s liability for direct damages be in excess of (in the aggregate) one hundred U.S. dollars ($100.00).

20. Dispute Resolution and Governing Law

We’re located in Sydney, Australia, and any disputes with us have to be handled in Sydney under Australian law.

We at King and Crown encourage you to contact us if you’re having an issue, before resorting to the courts. In the unfortunate situation where legal action does arise, these Terms (and all other rules, policies, or guidelines incorporated by reference) will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New South Wales and Australia, without giving effect to any principles of conflicts of law, and without application of the Uniform Computer Information Transaction Act or the United Nations Convention of Controls for International Sale of Goods. You agree that King and Crown and its Services are deemed a passive website that does not give rise to jurisdiction over King and Crown or its parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, assigns, employees, agents, directors, officers, or shareholders, either specific or general, in any jurisdiction other than the State of New South Wales, Australia. You agree that any action at law or in equity arising out of or relating to these Terms, or your use or non-use of King and Crown, shall be filed only in the state or federal courts located in Sydney in the State of New South Wales, and you hereby consent and submit to the personal jurisdiction of these courts for the purposes of litigating any such action. You hereby irrevocably waive any right you may have to trial by jury in any dispute, action, or proceeding.

21. The Rest

These are our official terms and our rules for how things work. (So if you ever see confusing or conflicting information about any of this stuff, just check these terms — they’re the last word.) Thanks so much for reading them, and for using King and Crown!

These Terms and the other material referenced in them are the entire agreement between you and King and Crown with respect to the Services. They supersede all other communications and proposals (whether oral, written, or electronic) between you and King and Crown with respect to the Services and govern our future relationship. If any provision of these Terms is found to be invalid under the law, that provision will be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary so that the Terms otherwise will remain in full force and effect and enforceable. The failure of either you or King and Crown to exercise any right provided for in these Terms in any way won’t be deemed a waiver of any other rights.

These Terms are personal to you. You can’t assign them, transfer them, or sublicense them unless you get King and Crown’s prior written consent.  King and Crown has the right to assign, transfer, or delegate any of its rights and obligations under these Terms without your consent. King and Crown will provide you notice via email, written notice, or by conspicuously posting the notice on our Site.
