Buyer is hereby notified of Lacantus Store’s express rejection of any terms inconsistent with this Agreement or to any other terms proposed by Buyer in accepting Lacantus Store’s quotation.

2. CANCELLATION. Cancellation or modifications of all or part of any order are subject to Lacantus Store’s prior written consent in each instance. If cancellation or modification is allowed, Buyer agrees to pay to Lacantus Store all expenses incurred and damage sustained by Lacantus Store on account of the cancellation or modification, plus a reasonable profit.

Prices in any Sales Confirmation from Lacantus Store are subject to change upon notice sent to Buyer at any time before the Sales Confirmation has been accepted.

How Projects Work
Lacantus Store provides a funding platform for creative projects of events. When a creator posts a project on Lacantus Store, they’re inviting other people to form a contract with them. Anyone who backs a project is accepting the creator’s offer, and forming that contract.
Lacantus Store is not a part of this contract — the contract is a direct legal agreement between creators and their backers. Here are the terms that govern that agreement:
When a project is successfully funded, the creator must complete the project and fulfill each reward. Once a creator has done so, they’ve satisfied their obligation to their backers.
Throughout the process, creators owe their backers a high standard of effort, honest communication, and a dedication to bringing the project to life. At the same time, backers must understand that when they back a project, they’re helping to create something new — not ordering something that already exists. There may be changes or delays, and there’s a chance something could happen that prevents the creator from being able to finish the project as promised.
If a creator is unable to complete their project and fulfill rewards, they’ve failed to live up to the basic obligations of this agreement. To right this, they must make every reasonable effort to find another way of bringing the project to the best possible conclusion for backers. A creator in this position has only remedied the situation and met their obligations to backers if:
- they post an update that explains what work has been done, how funds were used, and what prevents them from finishing the project as planned;
- they work diligently and in good faith to bring the project to the best possible conclusion in a timeframe that’s communicated to backers;
- they’re able to demonstrate that they’ve used funds appropriately and made every reasonable effort to complete the project as promised;
- they’ve been honest, and have made no material misrepresentations in their communication to backers; and
- they offer to return any remaining funds to backers who have not received their reward (in proportion to the amounts pledged), or else explain how those funds will be used to complete the project in some alternate form.
The creator is solely responsible for fulfilling the promises made in their project. If they’re unable to satisfy the terms of this agreement, they may be subject to legal action by backers.
How Funding Works
This section goes over the details of backing and creating projects — things like how money gets collected, whether pledges can be changed or canceled, and how creators can contact backers to provide rewards.
These are the terms that apply when you’re backing a project:
- You’ll be charged, even if the project does not reach its fundraising goal.You’ll provide your payment information when you pledge, and you’ll be charged. Your payment will be collected like a purchase, between 24 or 48 hours your “order” will be completed. The exact amount you pledged is the amount Lacantus Store will collect. If the campaign has reached or hasn’t reached its fundraising goal, you’ll be charged as well, funds will be collected, and money will change hands.
- You can change your pledge at any time before the project’s funding deadline (with one exception).You can increase your pledge at any time during the campaign, with one exception, you can’t cancel your pledge (“order”). After the last 24 hours of the campaign, you can’t increase your pledge without contacting customer support first — if that action would drop the project below its funding goal. Once the project has been funded, you can only change your pledge by making special arrangements directly with the creator.
- The Estimated Delivery Date is the creator’s The date listed on each reward is the creator’s estimate of when they will provide the reward — not a guarantee to fulfill by that date. The schedule may change as the creator works on the project. We ask creators to think carefully, set a date they feel confident they can work toward, and communicate with backers about any changes.
- The creator may need to send you questions about your reward. To deliver rewards, the creator might need information from you, like your mailing address or t-shirt size. They’ll request that information after the campaign has succeeded. To receive the reward, you’ll need to provide the information in a reasonable amount of time. Creators should not ask for personal information that is not necessary to provide your reward, and should never request sensitive personal information such as your Social Security number or payment information. Contact us at email@example.com if you receive a request for information that seems inappropriate or excessive.
- Lacantus Store doesn’t offer refunds. Responsibility for finishing a project lies entirely with the project creator. Lacantus Store doesn’t hold funds on creators’ behalf, cannot guarantee creators’ work, and does not offer refunds.
These are the terms that apply when you’re creating a project:
- You cannot refund individual pledges. After your project has been funded, you cannot cancel and refund a backer’s pledge. It means that you have further obligation to that specific backer, and the agreement still exists between you.
- We’ll charge our fees before putting funds in your account. Lacantus Store and its payment partners will subtract fees before transmitting the proceeds of a campaign.
- Some pledges can’t be collected, which might reduce the amount of funding you get.Because some payments can’t be collected — for instance, when a backer’s credit card expires before funding ends, and they don’t provide updated information — we can’t guarantee that the amount of funding you receive will be exactly equal to the full amount pledged minus fees.
- We’ll help resolve payment-card disputes.If a backer of your project disputes the charge with their card issuer, we’ll handle re-presenting the charge to settle the dispute with the card issuer. You’ll be notified that a dispute has been filed, and you’ll be able to provide evidence to help us resolve it in your favor. If the cardholder’s dispute is found valid, you authorize us to charge the credit card number you provided when you started your project for the amount of the chargeback.
- Don’t count your chickens before they hatch.Don’t assume you’ll be able to launch your project when you want; there could be a reason we’re not able to accept it, or a problem that takes time to resolve. Don’t assume you’ll be able to immediately collect your funding; there may be a delay between the end of a successful campaign and your access to the funds. And don’t take any actions in reliance on collecting any of the money pledged until you actually have the ability to withdraw it from your account and spend it.
