YoungFundr LTD is a rewards-based crowdfunding platform connecting project owners with project backers (contributors).
There are two types of users on the site: project owners and project backers.
For project owners, there is an application process that must be submitted before sending the campaign over to the YoungFundr team to check before being published live. Therefore, there is no guarantee that campaigns will be posted on the site. The application will need to be filled out providing accurate and relevant information.
The application process is a great opportunity to check your campaign is not incorrect and is suitable for the site.
The second type of user is the project backer, who has the responsibility to carry out their own due diligence on a project before contributing towards it.
YoungFundr or any of its affiliates are not associated with any campaigns, therefore we are not to be held responsible for any issues that arise. These must be resolved by the project owner and project backers.
