Welcome to Retrospective of Jupiter Crowd

By accessing this website we assume you accept these terms and conditions in full. Do not continue to use RoJCrowd’s website if you do not accept all of the terms and conditions stated on this page.
These terms and conditions (“Agreement”) set forth the general terms and conditions of your use of the rojcrowd.com website (“Website” or “Service”) and any of its related products and services (collectively, “Services”). This Agreement is legally binding between you (“User”, “you” or “your”) and Retrospective of Jupiter (“Retrospective of Jupiter”, “we”, “us” or “our”). By accessing and using the Website and Services, you acknowledge that you have read, understood, and agree to be bound by the terms of this Agreement. If you are entering into this Agreement on behalf of a business or other legal entity, you represent that you have the authority to bind such entity to this Agreement, in which case the terms “User”, “you” or “your” shall refer to such entity. If you do not have such authority, or if you do not agree with the terms of this Agreement, you must not accept this Agreement and may not access and use the Website and Services. You acknowledge that this Agreement is a contract between you and Retrospective of Jupiter, even though it is electronic and is not physically signed by you, and it governs your use of the Website and Services.
Scope of services
RoJCrowd runs the website https://rojcrowd.com/, where creators can launch projects and supporters can discover and financially support these projects. These projects are created by the project owners. For their content, for the offered rewards and for the realization the project owner is solely responsible. Copyrights and rights of use remain with the project owner at all times. Supporters decide exclusively on their own responsibility whether they want to support a project. RoJCrowd does not guarantee a successful financing of the projects nor their realization. The creators are solely responsible for the realization of the projects.
Accounts and membership
You must be at least 18 years of age to use the Website and Services. By using the Website and Services and by agreeing to this Agreement you warrant and represent that you are at least 18 years of age. If you create an account on the Website, you are responsible for maintaining the security of your account and you are fully responsible for all activities that occur under the account and any other actions taken in connection with it. We may, but have no obligation to, monitor and review new accounts before you may sign in and start using the Services. Providing false contact information of any kind may result in the termination of your account. You must immediately notify us of any unauthorized uses of your account or any other breaches of security. We will not be liable for any acts or omissions by you, including any damages of any kind incurred as a result of such acts or omissions. We may suspend, disable, or delete your account (or any part thereof) if we determine that you have violated any provision of this Agreement or that your conduct or content would tend to damage our reputation and goodwill. If we delete your account for the foregoing reasons, you may not re-register for our Services. We may block your email address and Internet protocol address to prevent further registration.
We do not own any data, information or material (collectively, “Content”) that you submit on the Website in the course of using the Service. You shall have sole responsibility for the accuracy, quality, integrity, legality, reliability, appropriateness, and intellectual property ownership or right to use of all submitted Content. We may monitor and review the Content on the Website submitted or created using our Services by you. You grant us permission to access, copy, distribute, store, transmit, reformat, display and perform the Content of your user account solely as required for the purpose of providing the Services to you. Without limiting any of those representations or warranties, we have the right, though not the obligation, to, in our own sole discretion, refuse or remove any Content that, in our reasonable opinion, violates any of our policies or is in any way harmful or objectionable. You also grant us the license to use, reproduce, adapt, modify, publish or distribute the Content created by you or stored in your user account for commercial, marketing or any similar purpose.
Use of User Information
Once a user creates a user profile, some of their information becomes viewable to the public: Nickname, Name, Social Media Channels (if provided), Profile Photo (if provided) and others, including the amount of their donations and the amount of donations they have raised for the relevant projects on the Website. The user profile also indicates which crowdfunding projects they participate in and contribute to. The donor has the option to make her/his donation anonymously. In this case the donor will be marked as “Anonymous” for the public.
However, when placing a donation, the campaign owner will be informed about the receipt of the donation, which will show the donor’s name, email address, phone number and address. This is used so that the campaign owner knows where to send the reward selected by the donor.
Commissions, fees and requests for payouts
After successful completion of a project, the project owner will receive 95% of the total amount paid out to her/his bank account, minus the transaction fees and the development and maintenance of the payment interface, which is about 3%, depending on the country. We use Stripe as our payment gateway. The exact fees can be found here.
This fee split also applies in the case that the funding goal is exceeded. If the previously set funding goal is not reached and/or the project owner does not make a request for a payout, there is no cost to the project owner. The funds that have already been paid in will be refunded to the backers.
Requests for payouts of collected funds can also be made if the fundraising goal has not been reached. Also in this case the campaign owner is obliged to deliver the already ordered rewards to the respective backers.
Deposits and withdrawals
The project owner and backers, when using our service, agree that RoJCrowd may engage third parties to collect funds deposited by backers and project owners to their accounts. For this purpose, backers will be directed to our payment provider Stripe, via the payment gateway. Payouts to project owners and refunds to backers are usually made within 4-10 days via the RoJCrowd account at Stripe or via our Swiss bank account.
Once a withdrawal request is submitted by a campaign owner, we pay out the total amount (minus the 5% and the fees from our payment provider) of a campaign to the bank account chosen by the campaign owner.
Please note: Regardless of whether only a part of the raised funds of a campaign is submitted for withdrawal, we will pay out the entire amount in a single withdrawal to a single bank account.
Project owners and supporters are required to provide RoJCrowd with valid bank details and current address for withdrawal of project funds or refunds of donations. If the withdrawal or refund cannot be made due to lack of correct information provided by the project owner and backer, RoJCrowd will take reasonable measures to locate the project owner and backer. If these reasonable measures are unsuccessful even after more than one year of the last contact with the project owner and backer, RoJCrowd is authorized to deduct a reasonable compensation for the efforts related to the reasonable measures and to donate the remaining amount to RoJCrowd.
The amount paid out to the project owners may exceptionally be less than 95% (and less the payment processing fees, which is about 3%) of the reached funding goal:
- if the credit cards used by the backers cannot be charged.
- if backers use their right of withdrawal and apply for a refund
- if we detect scam and the respective donated amount has not been credited to our account
- if we receive the funds too late on the account of RoJCrowd.
Accuracy of information
Occasionally there may be information on the Website that contains typographical errors, inaccuracies or omissions that may relate to product descriptions, pricing, availability, promotions and offers. We reserve the right to correct any errors, inaccuracies or omissions, and to change or update information or cancel orders if any information on the Website or Services is inaccurate at any time without prior notice (including after you have submitted your order).
