In an effort to further validate or verify fundraisers, AngeLink reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to require a background check on the Campaign Organizer and/or Beneficiary. AngeLink may require a background check if we believe in our sole discretion, that the fundraiser may be misleading, fraudulent or inaccurate for any reason or that the Campaign Organizer has an intent to potentially deceive Donors. In this circumstance, AngeLink may require a Campaign Organizer and/or Beneficiary to complete a third-party background check prior to withdrawal of funds. AngeLink is not a background check company and utilizes a third-party background check vendor to perform background checks.
AngeLink does not have access to or retain any personal information that may be reviewed by a third-party background check company. Fundraisers may also be asked to validate and verify fundraisers and respond to additional security questions to keep our platform safe and secure and to build trust among the community, however, AngeLink does not warrant or guarantee this. See AngeLink Terms of Service to learn more.
If the Fundraiser and/or the Beneficiary (as applicable) is notified that he/she failed third-party background check, the Fundraiser and/or the Beneficiary (as applicable) will be advised that he/she may contact the third-party background check company to file a dispute and provide documents to remediate any inaccuracies in the background check per the Fair Credit Reporting Act.
