4. How our Projects Work

MyTV LLC allows users to run petitions to bring back their favorite TV shows, and also provides a funding platform for creative projects. When a creator posts a project on MyTV LLC, they are inviting other users to form a contract with them. If a user backs a project, they are accepting the creator’s offer and forming that contract.

MyTV LLC is not a party to the contract that is formed between the creators and the backers of the project. These terms govern that contract:

When a project is funded, the creator must complete the project and satisfy each reward. Only at this point will the creator be deemed to have satisfied the obligations due to their backers.

Creators will ensure a high standard of effort, honest communication, and dedication to completing the project. Backers must understand that sometimes there will be changes or delays, and there is a chance that something could happen which prevents the creator from being able to finish the project as initially envisaged.

If a creator cannot complete the project, they must make every reasonable effort to find another way of completing the project in the best possible way for the backers.

A creator will only be deemed to have 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 completing the project as planned;
  • they work diligently and in good faith to bring the project to the best possible conclusion;
  • all changes are communicated to backers;
  • they can demonstrate that they’ve used funds appropriately and made every reasonable effort to complete the project as promised;
  • they 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.

If the creator is unable to satisfy the terms of this agreement, they may be subject to legal action initiated by their backers.


5. Funding

These are the terms that apply when you are backing a project:

  • You will only be charged if the project reaches its fundraising goal. You’ll provide your payment details when you pledge, but your payment will only be collected if, at the time of the project’s funding deadline, the project has reached its fundraising goal. MyTV LLC will collect the exact amount you pledged. If the campaign hasn’t reached its fundraising goal, no amounts will be collected.
  • We have the right to reserve the charge on your card. MyTV LLC and its payment partners may authorize or reserve a charge on your credit card (or any other payment method you use) for any amount up to the full pledge at any time.
  • You can change or cancel your pledge at any time before the project’s funding deadline (with one exception). You can cancel, increase or decrease your pledge at any time during the campaign. However during the last 24 hours of the campaign, you cannot decrease or cancel your pledge without contacting customer support first, if such decrease or cancellation would drop the project below its funding goal. Once the project has been funded, you can only cancel or change your pledge by making arrangements directly with the creator.
  • The Estimated Delivery Date is the creator’s estimate. The date listed on each reward is the creator’s estimate of when they will provide the reward and not a guarantee. The backers should be aware that the timetable may change. Creators should try to 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. Backers will need to provide the information in a reasonable amount of time.
  • MyTV LLC doesn’t offer refunds. Responsibility for finishing a project lies entirely with the project creator. MyTV LLC does not 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:

  • Creators can decide whether to refund pledges. After your project has been funded, you can cancel and refund a backer’s pledge at any time. If you do, you have no further obligation to that specific backer.
  • We will charge our fees before applying funds in your account. MyTV LLC and its payment partners will subtract fees before transmitting the proceeds of a campaign.
  • Some pledges cannot 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 will help resolve payment-card disputes. If a backer of your project disputes the charge with their card issuer, we will handle re-presenting the charge to settle the dispute with the card issuer. You will be notified that a dispute has been filed, and you will 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.
  • Be Patient. Do not assume you will 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.

6. Things that we are not responsible for

We do not oversee projects’ performance, and we do not mediate disputes between users or third parties.

MyTV LLC is not liable for any damages or losses related to your use of the Services, nor do we oversee the performance or punctuality of projects, and we don’t endorse anything content users submit to the Site.

All content you access through the Services is at your own risk.


7. Our Fees

Fees are only charged on successfully funded projects. We charge 5%, in addition to any fees from our payments partners.

Creating an account on MyTV LLC is free. If you create a project that is successfully funded, we (and our payment partners) collect fees.

We will give you the opportunity to review and accept our fees before we charge you. If our fees change, we will let you know through our Site. Some funds pledged by backers are collected by payment providers. MyTV LLC is not responsible for the performance of payment providers.

You are responsible for paying any additional fees or taxes associated with your use of the Service.


8. Other Websites

If you follow a link on the Site to another website, we are not responsible for anything that happens in relation to that website. We do not control or endorse those sites.
