Consequently you will have no recourse to any financial services compensation schemes in any jurisdiction.

What we do

We run a crowdfunded podcast named “The Biz.”

Following the release of its first episode, The Biz. will use crowdfunding to fund further episode releases. You will be able via the Site to contribute funds towards unlocking such further episode content (“Contributions”).

You should note Contributions are not linked to any acquisition of equity or other financial interest in Synonym Software Ltd.

A funding target for each episode will be published at the Site (“Target”) and when any new Contribution is received, a proportional amount of content to the goal for that episode will be progressively unlocked on the Site.

Once content for a particular episode is unlocked by the Contributions reaching the Target, all visitors to the Site will gain free access to that episode. When an episode is 100% unlocked it may be distributed as We wish.

A portion of the Contributions raised for any episode may be utilized for a list of projects, curated by Synonym Software Ltd. and chosen by the podcast guest. The projects associated with any podcast episode may be identified in the description of the podcast, in whole or part, but may not be disclosed or known at the time of Contribution.

Funding The Biz.

QR codes will be publicly available on the Site for payment of Contributions towards funding further episodes of The Biz.

You agree that a certain minimum Contribution amount may apply, and that all Contributions are final and will not be refunded unless We in our sole discretion, agree to issue a refund.
