General conditions of use

1. Scope of application

Yes We Farm Sàrl manages the page, which allows individuals, companies and associations in Switzerland to propose their project and have it financed by the public or to support a project financially. The name operator will be used hereafter to replace Yes We Farm Sàrl. People who propose projects on the platform are referred to as "project owners", and people who contribute financially to one or more projects are referred to as "contributors". Non-registered users are referred to as "users". Project owners and contributors can only be natural persons with full contractual capacity (the minimum age required is 18), and legal entities.

Project owners, contributors and users declare their agreement with these terms and conditions by using this website.

These terms and conditions apply to all contractual relationships with Yes We Farm Sàrl.

Yes We Farm reserves the right to modify these terms and conditions at any time.

2. Services

Yes We Farm Sàrl provides its platform to enable project owners to present their project and have it financed by the public. Each project is monitored by the Yes We Farm team to ensure optimum project quality and the highest possible success rate. The operator does not guarantee that projects will be successfully financed or carried out.

The project owner is solely responsible for the content of the project, the compensation offered and the project's completion. The right of use and copyright remains with the project owner.

Contributors decide exclusively and in accordance with their own responsibility whether they wish to support a project.

3. Commissions and fees

Each project must reach at least 80% of its target in order to collect money. If this percentage is not reached within the allotted time, the project owner earns no money, but pays no fees either. What's more, in this case, contributors are simply not debited. If the project is successful, i.e. if at least 80% of the amount has been raised, the project initiator will receive the money. A commission of 12% is deducted from each successful project. Of this 12%, 4% relates to payment costs and 8% to the costs of running the platform. If the project's financial target is exceeded, the costs are distributed in the same way.

4. Payments

Payment services for Project Developers operating on Yes We Farm are provided by Stripe and are subject to the Stripe Connected Account Agreement, which includes Stripe's Terms of Service (together referred to as the "Stripe Services Agreement"). By agreeing to these terms and conditions or continuing to operate as a project owner on Yes We Farm, you agree to be bound by the Stripe Terms of Service, which may be amended by Stripe from time to time. Because Yes We Farm allows you to make payments via Stripe, you agree to provide Yes We Farm with accurate and complete information about you and your business, and authorize Yes We Farm to share this information as well as information about transactions made via the payment solution provided by Stripe.

5. Project Payments

The project owner and contributors are obliged to provide the operator with valid bank details and a current address for the payment of the sum upon successful completion of the project. If the payment cannot be made due to incorrect information from the project owner, the operator reserves the right to take reasonable steps to trace the project owner. If these reasonable measures are unsuccessful one year after the last contact with the project owner, the operator is entitled to deduct an appropriate amount of compensation for the costs incurred as a result of the reasonable measures, and to donate the balance to the operator.

The amount paid to project promoters may be less than the amount reached at the end of the fund-raising campaign in cases where certain pledges have not been paid despite reminders sent, and where donations have not been made within a reasonable period of time.

6. Personal data

When creating a project, project owners must identify themselves with an official identity card. As far as possible, the operator checks the accuracy of the data.
