Other Websites

We provide links to other web sites, but we can't control what those sites say or do. In particular, websites to which we link may request your personal and/or financial information. Ryan Krause for Texas is not responsible for other sites' content, information collection practices, or use of the information they collect.

Campaign Finance Laws

Political contributions are governed by campaign finance laws. Ryan Krause for Texas makes its best efforts to ensure that all contributions made on the Ryan Krause for Texas site are in accordance with these laws. Nonetheless, you have final responsibility for ensuring your own compliance.

For example: Ryan Krause for Texas will not permit users to make donations larger than $2,700 to any federal candidate. However, Ryan Krause for Texas does not track users' contributions through other avenues (e.g. fundraisers, candidates' websites). Therefore you (and not Ryan Krause for Texas) are responsible for ensuring that your total contributions through these different avenues do not exceed your contribution limits. If you are in a position to make these kinds of large contributions, please be careful and don't give these campaigns' accountants any more headaches than they already have.

Other Laws

Donations to charities (501(c)(3) organizations) and social welfare groups (501(c)(4) organizations) are not subject to any contributions limits. You may make unlimited donations to these groups on the site. Ryan Krause for Texas cannot be responsible for your treatment of these donations on your tax returns. Charitable donations are tax-deductible for federal income tax purposes. Social welfare donations are not tax deductible as charitable contributions. We will do our best to provide you with all relevant information regarding tax treatment of donations to the entities on our site, such as what percentage of your donation might be used for lobbying activities (check your receipt). However, it is your responsibility to report your donations accurately as required and to pay your taxes. We recommend consulting your tax adviser or tax preparer if you have any questions.

Refund policy

Ryan Krause for Texas does everything we can to accommodate requests for refunds. We do our best to honor refunds requested for reasons such as input error, when a contributor accidentally donates twice or enters the wrong donation amount. Ryan Krause for Texas will not consider refunds for other reasons such as a change in political or personal opinion or the cancellation of an event. Ryan Krause for Texas reserves the right to refuse a refund request for these or other reasons.

All refund requests are subject to the availability of the contribution funds. Because Ryan Krause for Texas forwards contributions to the candidate, cause, or committee to whom you choose to contribute, Ryan Krause for Texas will only refund a contribution if we still have the funds or can recover the funds from the recipient. For this reason, it is of the utmost importance that you make your request for a refund as soon after contributing as possible.

All refunds issued by Ryan Krause for Texas will be credited back to the card used to make the contribution. In all cases where we are not able to accommodate a refund request, we will be happy to refer you to the recipient of your contribution so that you may request a refund directly from them.

Our state of the art fraud detection software constantly monitors the site for fraudulent activity using stolen cards. When our software identifies a fraudulent transaction, the contribution will be refunded automatically regardless of whether a refund has been requested.

If you are with a campaign, committee, or organization that has received a contribution through Ryan Krause for Texas and would like to request that we refund that contribution, please contact us at ryan@krause4u.com and we will do our best to assist you.

Re-designation of Contributions

In the event that a campaign or committee (a) fails for 60 days to cash a check from Ryan Krause for Texas which includes your contribution (after Ryan Krause for Texas makes repeated attempts to work with the campaign to ensure all checks are cashed), or (b) affirmatively refuses a contribution earmarked through Ryan Krause for Texas, your contribution will be re-designated as a contribution to Ryan Krause for Texas. Contributions to social welfare organizations which are similarly not cashed or affirmatively refused will be kept by Ryan Krause for Texas and used generally to support its social welfare activities. Contributions to charitable organizations which are not cashed or affirmatively refused will go to Ryan Krause for Texas Charities.
