Roles and responsibilities

Genome acts under these Terms of Use exclusively as a payment agent of the relevant Charity. Genome provides services of collecting Donations on behalf of the Charities, aggregating and transferring them on a permanent basis to the relevant Charity.

Genome is not a final receiver of the Donations and is not a non-profit charitable organization. Once You confirm to Us through the Website that You wish to proceed with a Donation, Your credit or debit card transaction will be processed by the bank acquirer who is Genome’s contractor.

If You want to make the Donation through SEPA transfer, the relevant payment details including the account number are placed on the Website. You can use the provided details and make transfer following the relevant payment procedures of Your bank or other payment service provider. The terms and conditions of the agreement between You and Your bank or other payment service provider shall apply to such transaction.

Genome collects the Donations made by different Payers, aggregates, and transfers them to the Charity.

What charity can You donate to

Charities are non-profit organizations independent from Genome. You can choose what Charity to make a Donation to. All Charities are proven non-profit organizations that successfully completed Genome’s due diligence and KYC procedures. Genome cooperates only with Charities, which purpose lies in helping the Ukrainian civilian population. All funds incoming from Payers shall be owned by/due to the relevant Charity, except only to reimbursements provided by contract between Genome and Charity.

Fees, Refunds and Recurring Donations

Genome does not charge any fees for Donations made. However, card scheme organizations (e.g. VISA or MasterCard), card issuing banks, acquiring banks or other participating parties may apply fees related to Donation transaction processing.

Please be aware that Donations are not refundable. You agree that We consider any Donation transaction executed as per Your instructions as duly authorized by You personally.

Genome does not allow recurring Donation transactions, which means that You will not be debited or requested any funds from Your credit or debit card on any regular basis.

If you make SEPA transfer, relevant fees and charges of Your bank or other payment service provider shall apply to such transaction. Please check the fee policy of Your bank or other payment service provider before initiating the transaction in favor of the Charity.
