Be Safe Online

AccelerateFunds.com THREE “S’s”…

 

What are Accelerate Funds Inc. THREE “S’s”?

  1. Serious: We take your online protection, well-being, and your online confidence SERIOUSLY. We have created a crowdfunding platform that is designed to benefit those campaigns that are clear, honest, and legitimate, and discourage those that are disingenuous.
  2. Security: We screen every campaign. We have a strict algorithm that allows or denies depending on the campaign theme. Please see our “NOT ALLOWED” page. We also reserve the right to deny any campaign if it does not follow our principles and values.
  3. Safety: Your safety is vital to us. We have mapped out a few steps we have taken and a few you can take to ensure your safety.

 

Contributing Currency:

 

Please only contribute to campaigns that you have fully understood and trust. We do not have the ability to guarantee the 100% authenticity of every campaign. Therefore, it is our recommendation to donate only if you personally know the campaigner and have complete confidence in its authenticity. Each campaign has the option of connecting to FaceBook to add another layer of authenticity. Donators then can see the campaigns user name, photo, and friends on FaceBook. This gives added transparency and benefits to both the contributor and the campaigner.

 

RECEPTION of CURRENCY

 

All Accelerate Funds campaigners must have a personal active Stripe or Pay-Pal account. Through these currency mediator accounts all transaction security is guaranteed. Any and all attempts to evade our secure donation process are forbidden, and swift termination of account will be enforced. (Examples but not limited to: giving direct web links to different contribution means, etc.)

 

Accelerate Funds will never stock delicate information. Banking data, passwords, and financial accounts are only required by PayPal or Stripe accounts. Never enter or give this information out unless prompted within these secure currency mediators.

 

REPORTING ISSUES

We ask that you immediately report ANY suspicious activity. Do not send any of your “delicate” information to a third party source or to any source claiming to assist you. AccelerateFunds will not contact you in this manner.
