This Document (The Play Terms) describes how the GiGRUSH Community operates.
Considering communities are vibrant and constantly changing environments, these play terms are subject to change. We therefore strongly advise the user to check the Play Terms section at the gigrush.org website regularly for possible updates to this document. By using these websites - gigrush.org, gigrush.com and or by participating in the GiGRUSH Community you agree with these GiGRUSH Play Terms mentioned on this page.

GiGRUSH is a foundation and non-profit organization, it has been founded to offer to all those interested in their own
personal growth and development to participate. Regardless of background or financial means. Only motivation and
dedication are needed. Moreover, GiGRUSH will also offer individuals the unique opportunity to help reshape the world
by working on individual GiGRUSH ventures (GiGS) together with GiGGERS from around the globe.
GiGRUSH is all about self-development, learning by doing and achieving personal growth.
GiGRUSH (The GiGRUSH Community/Movement) is a global movement of people who want to achieve their dreams and goals. The GiGRUSH Movement wants to realize these dreams by building an ‘International GiG Ecosystem’. This ecosystem makes it possible for it’s members to realize substantial personal growth by offering self-learning resources and more importantly, by offering the possibility to form and forge ‘teams’ (creating a ‘GiG’) that will actually work – focused on a very specific ‘real-life’, social, business, or cultural project. GiGRUSH is about self-development and personal growth by DOING, not just by theory but by actually putting what you learn into practice. The Community believes that by uniting the forces and energy of all of its members and by collaborating as one global family, it can bring all of us to totally new, unsurpassed levels which would not be attainable while working alone.
• GiGRUSH is not a place where entrepreneurs come to work on individual start-ups, which they incubate for
individual purposes. What GiGRUSH wants to do, is a lot more - No individual thinking in this Movement,
- Only United Thinking

GiGRUSH has a big focus on creating activities at Universities and Colleges around the world. However GiGRUSH also

This document is issued by the GiG Leader in the name of the GiG he/she is managing. It officially recognizes the
contribution of any contributing GiGGER (Alpha GiGGER, KickStart GiGGER, Freelance GiGGER, Mentor GiGGER)
to a GiG and describes the nature of the contribution in full. It also describes the potential future rewards.
The GiG Community Administration needs to formally validate the Letter of Recognition in writing before this LOR can
be used within the Community. On a best-effort basis, the GiG Leader will try to do everything possible to make
sure that the return can be achieved. It is important to underline that this is on a 'best-effort’ basis. The GiG Leader
cannot guarantee validity before having received final confirmation from the GiG Administration. Even upon validity it
does not create any legal liability. The LOR is a ‘deed of trust’ by both the issuer (GiG Leader) on one hand and the
receiver of the Letter of Recognition on the other. This is not a commitment nor a formal, legally binding obligation
nor a ‘debt’ nor an ‘IOU’ of the GiG Community in favor of the receiver or anyone else.

The GiGRUSH Campus Leader is the individual responsible to represent the GiG Community at the applicants Campus.

This section describes the status of the GiGRUSH Campus Leader.

The status of the GiGRUSH Campus Leader is an add-on to the Full Member application as a GiGGER. There can be only one GiGRUSH Campus Leader per Campus. This GiGRUSH Campus Leader can choose to appoint up to 3 GiGRUSH representatives at his or her campus to assist with the GiGRUSH tasks. The division of a University/College into campuses is the decision of the GiGRUSH Community (administration). The GiGRUSH Community (administration) also reserves the right to change the campuses if the GiGRUSH Movement finds it necessary to do so.
To clarify: the ‘G’ account of the GiGRUSH Campus is totally different and independent from a personal ‘G’ account of the GiGRUSH Campus Leader. The two should not be confused. It is indeed the duty of the GiGRUSH Campus Leader to manage the G-funds of the Campus account. However, these ‘Gs’ do not belong to him/her personally and can only be used for useful activities of the GiG and thus not for personal or non-GiG purposes. The exact same principle applies to other assets that may ‘belong’ to the GiGRUSH Campus.
The GiG Leader is the individual who is responsible for managing the activities of an individual GiG. He/she makes sure that the suggested GiG Venture plan, milestones and goals are obtained by managing the GiG activities and his/her GiG Team.
