8. Payment of Donations
The payment of Donations will be made using one of the means of payment proposed for the Project concerned, which may be for example the bank card and/or any other means of payment already offered on the Site or which will be integrated into the service in the future.
8.1 Payment of grants for projects located in the SEPA area (Europe) by STRIPE
The ILNU Company has chosen to rely on STRIPE for the management of electronic payment services by Bank Card, transfer or other payment methods offered.
For projects that have reached 100%, the amount of donations collected will be transferred to the Creator’s bank account provided that he has a bank account in the SEPA (Single European Payments Area) area.
For projects that have generated a surplus of donations, the surplus will be transferred to the Artist’s bank account provided that he has a bank account in the SEPA zone (Single European Payments Area).
The ILNU Company thus allows its Users to proceed with the payment through STRIPE. In order to use the Credit Card, Bank Transfer or Direct Debit payment system offered on the Site, the User must accept the Special Conditions of Use and the STRIPE General Conditions of Use made available on the Site. The User will be opened an account with STRIPE.
In particular, the User acknowledges that pursuant to the provisions of Articles L.561-2 et seq. of the Monetary and Financial Code, relating to the participation of financial bodies in the fight against money laundering and terrorist financing, STRIPE and ILNU Company as mandated distributor are bound by certain obligations.
In particular, they may carry out all the necessary steps to identify the User. The User undertakes to make every effort to allow the Company ILNU and STRIPE to carry out an in-depth review of the transactions, to inform them of any change in their professional situation, In this case, it is necessary to submit any document relating to this data.
The User acknowledges that the Company ILNU and STRIPE have set up surveillance systems for the purpose of combating money laundering and terrorist financing.
The User acknowledges that the Company ILNU or STRIPE may terminate or postpone at any time the opening of an account or the execution of a transaction in the absence of sufficient information on its object or nature. He is informed that a transaction carried out under this agreement may be reported to the National Financial Intelligence Unit (TRACFIN) in case of suspicion.
Thus, no prosecution based on articles 226-13 and 226-14 of the Penal Code and no civil liability action may be instituted or any professional sanction pronounced against the Company ILNU or STRIPE, their officers or servants who have made in good faith the declarations referred to in Articles L.561-15 et seq. of the French Monetary and Financial Code.
When the User makes a Contribution by Bank Card, transfer or other payment method offered by STRIPE, the amount of his Contribution is immediately debited from the User’s account.
If at the end of the Collection Period (maximum 80 days), the Financing Objective has not been met, the Contribution is cancelled and the amount of the Contribution is returned to the User’s Bank Account (before the end of 90 days)Either by cancelling the payment if it was made by card or by transfer where this is not possible. In the latter case, the amount of the Contribution shall be kept on the platform account until the latter communicates to the ILNU Company the bank details necessary for the successful completion of the repayment transfer.
If at the end of the Collection Period the Financing Objective has been met or exceeded, the total sum of the Contributions will be made available from the Creator and the Artist to their bank account and will therefore no longer be refundable to the User who made the Contribution via the system set up by ILNU and its partner STRIPE.
8.2 End of collection period
The Donations will be given to the Creator only at the end of the Collection Period and only if they meet the regulatory obligations of ILNU and STRIPE Company in the fight against money laundering and terrorist financing in accordance with Articles L.561-2 et seq. The Artist acknowledges that as long as its supporting documents (notably but not exclusively, proof of identity, domicile, statutes, K-bis, if applicable) are not received by the Company ILNU and STRIPE and declared compliant by them, Donations cannot be disbursed.
In the event that some Projects require further study to rule out any risks related to the fight against money laundering and terrorist financing, No dispute concerning any delay in the execution of the payments of the Donations to the bank accounts of the Artists could be raised by them against the Company ILNU or STRIPE.
In order to facilitate the verification of these documents, the Creator or the Artist may be invited by the ILNU Company by electronic means to begin the process as soon as 50% of the Donation Collection Objective is reached.
8.3 Disbursement of Donations following an Extension of the Collection Period
In the event that the Project Holder wishes to extend its Collection Period, subject to the agreement of the ILNU Company, the latter may benefit from an early disbursement under the same conditions of article 8.2 hereof.
