Terms of Service
- Effective Date: December 2, 2022
- Applicability and Scope
These Terms of Service are the only terms that govern the provision of services and use of our platform between you and MyCraft Business Solutions LLC (“Company,” “we,” or “us”).
The following terms, along with any documents, policies, or agreements expressly incorporated into these terms, constitute the “Terms” that will govern the provision of services and use of our platform, including any content, functionality, and services (our “Service”) offered on or through platforms including our website and application, or any subdomain of our website or application (the “Platform“). These Terms supersede all prior or contemporaneous understandings, agreements, negotiations, representations and warranties, and communications, whether written or oral, between you and us.
These Terms apply to you whether you are a guest or a registered user.
- Acceptance of Terms
- Changes to These Terms
We may revise and update these Terms from time to time at our sole discretion. All changes are effective as of the Effective Date above and will apply to all access to and use of our Platform thereafter.
Your selecting “Accept” or “Agree” to a change in our Terms following the posting of the revised Terms means that you have read and agree to the changes. These Terms are binding upon you, and you are expected to check this page periodically to be aware of any changes to these Terms.
- Age Restriction
This Platform is offered and available to users who are at least 16 years of age or older. By using our Platform, you represent that you meet all of the foregoing eligibility requirements. If you do not meet all of our eligibility requirements, you must not access or use our Platform.
- Relationship of Parties and Third Parties
We are providing our Service and our Platform as an independent contractor purveying a service. Nothing contained in these Terms should be construed as creating any agency, partnership, joint venture, or other form of joint enterprise, employment, or fiduciary relationship between the parties. Neither party has the authority to contract for or bind the other in any manner for any reason whatsoever. Your use of our Platform to facilitate the performance of a service contract does not make us a party to the contract, and we are not responsible for the performance of duties or obligations under the service contract.
These Terms are for the sole benefit of you and the Company, and our respective successors and assigns. Nothing herein is intended to or shall confer upon any other party any legal or equitable right, benefit, or remedy of any nature.
We will use commercially reasonable efforts to meet any performance, completion, delivery, or release dates.
However, any such date is only an estimate. Delays may occur for transactional or technical reasons. We will do our best to notify the parties to the transaction of any delays in the performance of the transaction. We do not warrant against the date of completion of the transaction. We are not responsible for any expenses incurred as a result of any delay in performance.
- Accessing the Website and Our Security
We reserve the right to withdraw or amend these Terms, our application, website, Service, material, or content we provide on our Platform, in our sole discretion, without notice. We will not be liable if, for any reason, all or any part of our Platform is unavailable at any time or for any period. We may periodically restrict access to some parts or the entirety of our Platform to users, including registered users and guests.
You are responsible for both:
- Making all arrangements necessary for you to have access to our Platform, including maintaining a valid account with up-to-date payment information.
- Ensuring that all persons who access our Platform, including our website, application, or Service through your internet connection, are aware of these Terms and comply with them.
If you choose or are provided with a username, password, or any other piece of information as part of our security procedures, you must treat such information as confidential, and you must not disclose it to any other person or entity.
You also acknowledge that your account is personal to you and you agree not to provide any other person with access to our Platform or any portions of it using your username, password, or other security information. You agree to notify us immediately of any unauthorized access to or use of your username or password or any other breach of security. You also agree to ensure that you exit from your account at the end of each session. You should use particular caution when accessing your account from a public or shared computer so that others are not able to view or record your password or other personal information.
We have the right to disable any username, password, or other identifiers, whether chosen by you or provided by us, at any time in our sole discretion for any or no reason, including if, in our opinion, you have violated any provision of these Terms.

- Timely obtain and maintain all necessary licenses and consents and comply with all applicable laws in relation to the Services so that timing of performance is not affected.
If our performance is prevented or delayed because of an act or omission of your doing, or if your failure to comply with these Terms causes a delay in performance, we will not be deemed to be in breach of our obligations under the agreement. We will not be liable for any costs, charges, expenses, or losses sustained or incurred by you, in each case, to the extent that the costs, charges, expenses, or losses arose directly or indirectly from such prevention or delay.

- Links From the Website
Our Platform facilitates transactions whereby money is held by a third-party payment processor service provider. To initiate a transaction on our Platform, you must first create a user account with our Platform. “Contractors” are the beneficiary parties to the project payments and may create a “Project” on the Platform. The “Client” is the initial depositor of the Project funds and can approve a pending Project on our Platform. By approving the Project, the Client accepts the offer of MyCraft’s Services set by the Contractor, agrees to the terms of the Project, and agrees to deposit the entire amount of requested funds at the intervals reflected in the Project. Any changes to the terms of the Project after approval must be made by a change order as described in Section 20 of these Terms.
Upon approval of the Project, the depositor of funds will be redirected to the third-party payment processor’s platform to complete the transaction by depositing the Project funds to be held by the third-party payment processor. The third-party payment processor will hold the Project funds until our Platform initiates the release of the funds. Our Platform will only initiate the release of Project funds following a request for release by the requesting party and affirmative authorization by the authorizing party for the release of such funds. However, if the authorizing party does not give affirmative authorization for the release of funds or notification of dispute in accordance with Section 21 of these Terms within 14 calendar days of the release request, the funds will be considered approved for release to the requesting party.
We institute a fee for each transaction at the then-applicable rate. For more information regarding our rate, please see our Frequently Asked Questions page. Our fee will be attributed and calculated based on the total Project value. Quoted fees and rates are subject to change without notice. Unless agreed to otherwise, a fee change will only affect contracts entered into after the change. We may accept or reject any transaction at our sole discretion. We reserve the right to discontinue the offering of our Service at any time.
Any amounts funded by the Client, except for processing fees, will be refunded to the Client in its entirety if a refund event occurs. Refund events include 1) the cancelation of a fully or partially funded Project, whether the cancelation occurs before an approved funding release or not, 2) a negative change order agreed to by the parties in accordance with these Terms, 3) the return of funds due to the accidental funding of a Project, and 4) any other event we determine in our sole discretion to be a refund event.
In consideration of the provision of our Platform and the rights granted to you under this agreement, you shall pay all fees, expenses, and taxes set forth on our Platform or invoiced to you. You are responsible for paying all sales, use, and excise taxes, and any other similar taxes, duties, and charges of any kind imposed by any federal, state, or local governmental entity on any amounts payable by you hereunder.
- Change Orders
If either party wishes to change the Project value or payment terms of the Project, it must submit details of the requested change to the other party in writing by submitting a change order on our Platform. The party receiving the change order request may choose to accept the change order or request a revision of the change order. If the change order is accepted, the terms of the Project are amended to reflect the effect of the change order on the Project. By requesting a change order and accepting the change order, both the Contractor and Client agree to the amendment of the terms of the Project. By proposing and accepting the change order, the parties agree to deposit or return the funds as represented in the change order. Our fees will also be applied to the change order value.
After the funds have been deposited via our Platform and if the Project has not been completed, the return of funds may be accomplished through a negative change order, whereby the project funds are returned to the Client. However, if the Client and Contractor cannot agree on the settlement of the funds, either party may submit a dispute by following the dispute resolution process described in the next section of these Terms.
- Dispute Resolution
Disputes may occur when a Client and a Contractor cannot agree to release funding that is already held by the third-party payment processor. It is in both parties’ best interest to resolve payment issues and move forward without initiating a costly and time-consuming dispute.
If either party believes that it is not able to resolve the disagreement with the other party, it may take advantage of the MyCraft Dispute Resolution process. Our dispute resolution process is designed to resolve disputes quickly and affordably.
Our Dispute Resolution process can only involve approved Project Funds in the possession of the third-party payment processor. Therefore, ancillary claims related to the agreement between the Client and Contractor are not subject to the MyCraft Dispute Resolution process. If the approved Project Funds are made subject to any external dispute resolution procedure, such as litigation or arbitration not affiliated with the MyCraft Dispute Resolution process, then the parties shall notify MyCraft immediately. At such time, the disputed funds will be released back to the funding party, less any processing fees, and the MyCraft Dispute Resolution process will not be available.
If your project has reached a point where attempts to reconcile issues related to funding release have failed and you wish to engage in our Dispute Resolution process, you must first notify us that you have begun the dispute process by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. The subject line should read “Project Name, dispute.” The date of such email is considered the Dispute Date.
What happens if I notify MyCraft of a dispute?
The MyCraft Dispute Resolution process commences on the Dispute Date, and MyCraft will flag the project as in dispute. During the Dispute Resolution process, all project functionality on the Platform will remain active. MyCraft is not a party to any dispute between Client and Contractor, and it is the responsibility of Client and Contractor to resolve disputes outside of MyCraft, as described in the MyCraft Dispute Resolution Process below. If the project is not funded through MyCraft, we may only respond with a reminder that a MyCraft dispute only applies to approved Project funds.
MyCraft Dispute Resolution Process:
- After we are notified that the MyCraft Dispute Resolution process has commenced, we will send emails to both Client and Contractor that the MyCraft Dispute Resolution process has begun. At that time, the Confirmation and Negotiation period commences.
- Confirmation and Negotiation Period – Beginning when MyCraft sends emails to both parties, the Contractor and Client have 14 calendar days from the Dispute Date to respond to MyCraft’s request for confirmation and to resolve their dispute without escalating the dispute. MyCraft will send reminder emails to both parties when there are ten days, seven days, three days, and two days remaining in the Confirmation and Negotiation Period. If the parties agree to a resolution, both will notify MyCraft via email, and if required, a change order reflecting the agreed-upon terms will be issued. The confirmation, notification, and change order must be completed prior to the end of the Confirmation and Negotiation Period.
- Mediation Commencement Period – If Contractor and Client have not resolved the dispute within the 14-day Confirmation and Negotiation Period, the Contractor and Client are provided a second 14-day period before the mediation period must occur. MyCraft will send reminder emails to both parties when there are ten days, seven days, three days, and two days remaining in the Mediation Commencement Period. By the end of this period, the Contractor and Client are required to begin mediation proceedings. The parties agree to make a good-faith eﬀort to settle the dispute in mediation. The mediation will be submitted to the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) to be mediated according to the AAA Mediation Procedures, and the AAA will be asked to choose a mediator. The Client and Contractor will evenly divide and pay the mediator’s fees, if any. MyCraft must be notified within two days of the initiation of the mediation process by the parties.
- Mediation Period – Beginning at the end of the Mediation Commencement Period, the Contractor and Client will work to timely resolve the dispute via mediation. The outcome of the mediation must be delivered to MyCraft within two days of completion. If mediation does not successfully resolve the dispute, the Contractor and Client will begin the Arbitration Commencement Period.
- Arbitration Commencement Period – If the contractor and client have not resolved the dispute during the Mediation Period, the Contractor and Client are provided 14 days to commence arbitration. MyCraft will send reminder emails to both parties when there are ten days, seven days, three days, and two days remaining in the arbitration commencement period. Before the end of this period, Contractor and Client are required to begin arbitration. The Contractor and Client will submit the dispute to arbitration before a single arbitrator of the AAA. The arbitrator shall be selected by application of the rules of the AAA, or by mutual agreement of the Parties. MyCraft must be notified of the initiation of the arbitration process by the Client and Contractor within two days. The issue of arbitrability will be determined solely by the arbitrator. The arbitrator must be instructed to serve the final award ruling to MyCraft within three days of the completion of the arbitration proceedings. MyCraft will then disperse the disputed funds according to the final award ruling, and at such time, the MyCraft Dispute Resolution process will conclude.
- Even though the Client and Contractor shall give MyCraft timely notice of all proceedings and final awards, MyCraft is not a party to the dispute or any proceedings. Because MyCraft is not a party to a dispute, the Contractor and Client are responsible for all expenses and fees related to the dispute process.
- At any point, the Client and Contractor can mutually resolve the dispute by sending a notification of the resolution of the dispute along with a description of the resolved terms and any disbursement instructions to MyCraft. Any such notification must be sent to email@example.com.
- If, after the commencement of the MyCraft Dispute Resolution process, MyCraft has not received timely notice as described above, MyCraft may terminate or cancel the Project and release disputed funds to the initiator of the dispute. Also, if any party is non-responsive, meaning they do not provide written response, email or otherwise for a period of 14 days following the most recent communication from the responsive party or MyCraft, MyCraft may terminate or cancel the Project and release the disputed funds to the responsive party, deducting our fees. In both situations, funds not in dispute will be released back to the funding party.
- If the dispute process has not been resolved within two years of the initial funding of the Project by the Client, then MyCraft will terminate the Project, and the funds will be returned to the funding party to be held until a final ruling is made by the arbitrator, at which time the funds will be dispersed pursuant to the arbitrators final ruling.

The Impacted Party shall use diligent efforts to end the failure or delay and ensure the effects of such Force Majeure Event are minimized. The Impacted Party shall resume the performance of its obligations as soon as reasonably practicable after the removal of the cause. If the Impacted Party’s failure or delay remains uncured for a period of 30 days following the removal of the Force Majeure Event, the other party may thereafter terminate the agreement upon five days’ written notice.
Provisions of these Terms, which by their nature should apply beyond their terms, will remain in full force after any termination or expiration of this agreement.
