Except as otherwise stated, all amended terms shall automatically be effective five days after they are initially posted. Okanjo may also revise other policies, codes or rules at any time, and the new versions will be on the Site. No amendment to the Terms of Use or Privacy Policy shall apply to any dispute of which Okanjo had actual notice before the date of the amendment.

To the extent the Terms of Use or Privacy Policy conflict with any other terms, policy, rules or codes of conduct, the terms contained in these Terms of Use and in the Privacy Policy shall govern.


By accessing the Site, you have a limited license to use the Site for your personal use, including the limited right to view, bookmark, download and print those pages of the Site that interest you, subject to any other terms and conditions of use in these Terms or on the Site. These Terms cannot be waived or modified by any oral communication between you and Okanjo. Your use of any materials, tools or software from the Site is terminable by Okanjo at any time.

Okanjo’s failure to exercise, or delay in exercising, any right, power or privilege under these Terms shall operate as a waiver.

If you breach this Agreement at any time, you are not considered to be “good standing.” Okanjo may suspend your access to the Okanjo Website in order to require you to remedy a breach. Okanjo may terminate this Agreement at any time and for any reason by providing notice to you in accordance with this Agreement.

You understand that Okanjo has no obligation to make any donations to you (even those where you have been specified as the Charitable Beneficiary), or otherwise to provide any services or perform other obligations under this Agreement, after the termination of this Agreement for any reason.

Any obligations you have incurred before termination will survive as obligations even after termination. The obligations above will survive the termination of this License Agreement.

Miscellaneous Terms and Conditions

This Agreement, together with any other documents incorporated herein by reference (including, without limitation, Okanjo Terms of Use and the Okanjo fee structure, each as amended from time to time), constitutes the entire Agreement between Okanjo and supersedes all previous negotiations, understandings and agreements between Okanjo in relation to its subject matter.

You acknowledge that in entering and performing this Agreement both Okanjo and you are acting solely as independent contractors, and nothing in this Agreement creates a partnership, joint venture, or employer-employee relationship, and neither party is acting as an agent of the other party. For purposes of clarity, neither party has any authority to make any commitments on behalf of the other party or to purport to bind the other party in any manner or to any extent.

Okanjo may give notice pursuant to this Agreement by any means of contact in your Okanjo Nonprofit Store Profile and will be effective when sent. If you fail to provide valid and current contact information as required, you waive your right to receive notices under this Agreement during the period of such failure. Notices may also be given by posting information within the Okanjo Website and, except as required by the following section will be deemed effective when posted. Notices from you to Okanjo must be given by email or other means provided within the Okanjo Website and will be deemed given when actually received by Okanjo.

Okanjo may amend this Agreement at any time by posting amended terms on the Okanjo Website. Okanjo will send a message to the email address in your Okanjo Nonprofit Store Profile alerting you. Except as otherwise expressly stated in such a posting, all amended terms shall automatically be effective and legally binding upon 5 days after having been posted on the Okanjo Website. Your continuation as an Okanjo Nonprofit, and/or your continued access to or use of the Okanjo Website after such 5 day period will constitute your complete consent and acceptance to all such amended terms. If you do not accept the amended terms you may terminate this Agreement as set forth in this Agreement. Apart from such posting by Okanjo, this Agreement may not otherwise be amended except in a written document (i) that expressly references this Agreement and/or any affected amended terms as posted by Okanjo and (ii) that is executed by both you and Okanjo.

Should any provision of this Agreement be held by a court or other tribunal of competent jurisdiction to be void, illegal, invalid, inoperative, or unenforceable, the remaining provisions of this Agreement shall not be affected and shall continue in effect, and the invalid provision shall be deemed modified to the least degree necessary to remedy such invalidity.

You may not assign this Agreement without Okanjo’s prior written consent; any attempted assignment in violation of the foregoing will be null and void. Okanjo may assign this Agreement to any third party without your consent. All the terms and provisions of this Agreement shall be binding upon, shall inure to the benefit of, and shall be enforceable by the respective successors and permitted assigns of you and Okanjo.

Okanjo’s failure to partially or fully exercise any right will not be considered a waiver of that right unless Okanjo so states in writing to you. The waiver of any breach, shall not prevent a subsequent exercise of such right or be deemed a waiver of any subsequent breach of the same or any other term of this Agreement. Any remedies made available to us by the terms of this Agreement are cumulative and are without prejudice to any other remedies that may be available to us in law or equity.

Any dispute between you and Okanjo shall be resolved in accordance with the Dispute Resolution provisions of the Okanjo Terms of Use which cannot be resolved by negotiation shall be submitted to mediation, and if mediation fails, arbitration, under the rules of the American Arbitration Association, or any comparable entity that you and we may subsequently agree upon in writing. Any arbitration award issued by the arbitrator shall be final, binding, and enforceable in any court of competent jurisdiction. Notwithstanding the foregoing, you acknowledge that unauthorized use of our proprietary materials, information or technology may cause irreparable harm to Okanjo for which monetary damages would be an inadequate remedy. Accordingly, we have the right, without necessity of posting bond, to seek injunctive or other equitable relief from any court of competent jurisdiction to protect our rights in intellectual property or confidential information.

This Agreement shall be governed and interpreted in accordance with the laws of the state of Wisconsin without regard to its principles of conflict of laws. Venue for mediation, arbitration, or litigation of any dispute, controversy, or claim arising out of, in connection with, or in relation to this Agreement, or the breach thereof, shall be proper only within a mediation or arbitration process or in a tribunal of competent jurisdiction within the state of Wisconsin.
