Contributions to Nonprofit Organizations
iRobinHood is a participant in various arrangements with certain third parties that offer to You the opportunity to earn contributions for Your designated nonprofit organization(s). If You complete an eligible transaction (for example, a purchase from an online merchant partner’s website, or use of a co-branded credit card), then the third party is obligated to remit funds to iRobinHood, which will then contribute a portion of those funds in Your name to Your designated nonprofit organization.
If You choose to avail Yourself of one or more of these arrangements, then You acknowledge that these arrangements are operated by third parties and are not under the control of iRobinHood. We do not set the criteria for what constitutes an eligible transaction, nor the amount that is to be paid to iRobinHood as a result of an eligible transaction, and cannot assure You that the applicable third party will remit funds to us even if You have satisfied the criteria for an eligible transaction. The amount of potentially eligible contributions is determined by transaction data provided to us by third parties. iRobinHood is not obligated to confirm, and does not warrant or guarantee, the accuracy, truth or completeness of any data provided by such third parties. We are not responsible for any such third party’s failure to pay funds to us. No contributions will be made to any nonprofit organization until we have received the funds from the applicable third party. The amount eligible for contribution to Your nonprofit is based on the amount that we actually receive from the third party, net of our fees and net of any chargebacks, credit card commissions, refunds, or other amounts payable to or offset by the applicable third party. iRobinHood does not determine which purchases are eligible for contributions, nor the percentage of the purchase price that is remitted. iRobinHood will make diligent efforts so that the amount actually contributed to your nonprofit organization after deduction of charge backs, credit card commissions, refund and taxes shall be (i) at least 85% of the remaining balance in case iRobinHood does not use third parties in the process of the transaction; or (ii) at least 50% of the remaining balance third parties are involved in your transaction even if you are not aware or did not engage such third parties.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, it is hereby clarified that in certain cases when we use third party partners, the amount the will be eventually contributed to charity may be lower than 50% due to payments that the we collect for the benefit of our partners and that we are obliged to pay to our partners.
The eligible portion of funds paid to us is allocated to Your designated nonprofit organization subject to deduction of transfer commissions and other similar commissions as the case may be at iRobinHood's sole discretion (including without limitation, and any other third parties' fees and commissions in accrued in connection with the activity of the end user). You acknowledge that such funds are not Your property and You have no claim to such funds or to any interest earned by such funds.
Although iRobinHood tries to ensure that all transactions are tracked and credited, no system is perfect. If You believe that an eligible transaction You completed has not been credited to Your account within 120 days of the date of the transaction, please contact (as specified below) include the receipt, the name of the merchant and the amount and date of the transaction, Your name, address and email address registered with iRobinHood and we will investigate the matter with the applicable third party.
You may use the iRobinHood Applications to locate merchants, shop, and thus contribute to the designated nonprofit organization, as follows:
- You may locate a merchant via the "shop" button located on the iRobinHood toolbar or other Application, and choosing a merchant from any of the listed categories.
- You may locate a merchant using the search field on the iRobinHood toolbar or other Application, or via your favorite search engine. Note however that in such a case an appropriate Cookie shall be stored on your computer in order to facilitate the contribution. Every time you click on the advertiser's link we are affiliated with, in natural search, affiliate cookie will be stored on your computer in order to facilitate the contribution.
- Direct navigation to the advertiser's site, participating in the Commission Junction Affiliate Network, will result in affiliated Cookie stored on the end user computer.

To be eligible for a contribution through the online shopping program, You must complete a purchase with a website participating in our program. If You initiate a purchase but complete it after a different session, or if You click on other links to other webpages before completing the purchase, then Your purchase may not be an eligible purchase. Items returned after purchase will invalidate part or all of the original eligible purchase.
The iRobinHood Applications (the “Applications”) will help to remind You to shop at iRobinHood's online merchant partners, expedite your shopping process, or advance the cause of your designated nonprofit organization. Your use of the Applications is voluntary and You may remove it from Your computer at any time.
