The donation-related features will only be available on BriteBuild’s site located at www.goodspree.com. If Beneficiary, Designated Recipient, or Organizer does not want products created for them available on third-party marketplaces, they must opt out of third-party marketplace participation within 24 hours of creating an account on goodspree.com by emailing email@example.com and stating they would like to opt out.

Any such activities are carried out solely by the Beneficiaries or Organizers who sell products or on their own initiative. If any state regulatory agency overseeing charitable solicitation activity has concerns, they will be addressed directly to the Beneficiary or Organizer, as the case may be.

BriteBuild makes every effort to transmit funds due to each Beneficiary or Designated Recipient, as the case may be. In cases where the Beneficiary fails to submit sufficient account information (bank account details, a completed IRS form W-9, current mailing address, correct email address, etc.), BriteBuild will make a good faith effort to contact the Beneficiary or Designated Recipient in order to render a payment in accordance with BriteBuild’s policies.

BriteBuild collects and remits sales tax to required states for all transactions.
Whether a Donation is tax deductible as a charitable contribution depends upon whether the Beneficiary or the Designated Recipient is a recognized 501(c)(3) organization and whether the Beneficiary or the Designated Recipient chooses to deem Excess contributions facilitated by BriteBuild as tax-deductible donations. BriteBuild reserves the right to request a copy of an IRS Determination Letter to verify 501(c)(3) status.
