Capturepoint Terms & Conditions

  1. Overview

  2. Philosophy

    The primary objective of CommunityPass, Capturepoint's flagship product, is to make it easier for residents, parents and children to participate in community activities and more affordable for organizations within the Community to operate. To that end, following are the founding principles of CommunityPass.

    1. To provide a trusted and central location for parents and residents to register themselves and their children for events and activities within their Community.
    2. To enable organizations within a community to accept credit card payments at the lowest possible processing cost.
    3. To reduce the amount of administration required to process and manage registration data.
    4. To enable collaboration and sharing of data across disparate organizations within a community without requiring ongoing coordination or financial commitments between organizations.
