SPONSOR.ONLINE provides an auctioning platform for closing a sports sponsorship deals. When a Club or Sportsperson launched an Auction on SPONSOR.ONLINE, Sponsors are invited to form a contract with them. Anyone who is taking a part in an Auction by bidding is accepting the creator’s offer, and forming that contract.
SPONSOR.ONLINE is not a part of this contract — the contract is a direct legal agreement between Clubs/Sportspersons and Sponsors. Here are the terms that govern that agreement:
When an Auction is successfully closed, the Club/Sportsperson must execute a sponsorship deal described in the offer and use it`s merchandizing and other space defined in the offer to promote the Sponsor. Once the Club/Sportsperson has done so, they’ve satisfied their obligation to the Sponsor.
Throughout the process, Clubs/Sportspersons provide Sponsors with a high standard of effort, honest communication, and a dedication to executing the sponsorship deal.
If the Club/Sportsperson is unable to execute a sponsorship deal described in the offer and use it`s merchandizing and other space defined in the offer to promote the Sponsor, they’ve failed to live up to the basic obligations of this agreement and they may be subject to legal action by Sponsors.
Sponsor will provide the payment information when he starts bidding, but he won’t be charged. Sponsor`s payment will only be collected if he wins the Auction and it is accepted by the Club/Sportsperson. The exact amount Sponsor offered is the amount SPONSOR.ONLINE will collect. If the Sponsor didn`t win the Auction or the Club/Sportsperson do not accept his offer, he won’t be charged, no funds will be collected, and no money will change hands.
3 different options for execution of sponsorship deal will occur after the Sponsor is accepted by the Club/Sportsperson.
1. Auction is closed successfully (for less than USD 5 000):
We will transfer the money directly to the Club/Sportsperson`s account. We will connect Club/Sportsperson with the sponsoring company providing them with their contact details.
2. Auction is closed successfully (for less than USD 10 000):
We will connect Club/Sportsperson with the sponsoring company providing them with their contact details. There is a 30 days period allowing Club/Sportsperson to submit the sporsorship execution timeline for Sponsor. Once the intention of the sporsorship fulfillment is proven, SPONSOR.ONLINE will transfer the money to the Club/Sportsperson`s account.
3. Auction is closed successfully (for more than USD 10 000):
We will connect Club/Sportsperson with the sponsoring company providing them with their contact details. SPONSOR.ONLINE will appoint an Account Manager to oversee the implementation of the sponsorship and make sure there is a value created on both sites. There is a 30 days period allowing Club/Sportsperson to prove this value. After this period, SPONSOR.ONLINE will transfer the money to the Club/Sportsperson`s account.
We’ll charge our fees before transferring money to the Club/Sportsperson`s account.
SPONSOR.ONLINE and its payment partners will subtract fees before transmitting the proceeds of the Auction.
SPONSOR.ONLINE doesn’t offer refunds. Responsibility for executing the sponsorship deal lies entirely with the Club/Sportsperson.
