  1. Use of Your Donation/ About the Causes. 


  • The Offerings allow you to chose a non-profit organization (a ‘’Cause’’) listed on either the App or the Site, and direct a donation to the Cause with every purchase at participating brands such as retailers and others like coffee shops and restaurants (“Brand Partners”). Causes are listed on the Offerings at Beam’s discretion; however, we are not responsible for the activities of any Brand Partners or Cause. A charity must have the appropriate authorization, permit or license to operate as a charity, as required by the local laws of the territory in which it operates.


  • Beam does not guarantee that your donations will be used for any particular purpose and shall not be responsible for any dissatisfaction you may have regarding a Cause's use of any donation you may make through the Offerings or for any misuse or non-use of such donations by a Cause. Please note that recipient organizations reserve the right to use your donation for their general purposes in accordance with their practices and rules. Beam shall not be responsible for ensuring that funds are earmarked for a particular appeal.

  1. Use of Plaid Inc.

By providing the requisite access information to Beam, you grant Plaid permission and authority to access the relevant third party accounts, on your behalf or on behalf from the principal account holder, and retrieve the relevant information to make it available as part of the Offerings and agree to be bound by Plaid’s terms of use in addition to these Terms of Use.
