We go to great lengths to ensure that all donations are made through a secure link. However, the security of information and payments transmitted over the internet cannot be assured, and since we are not responsible for the secure link's operation, we will not be liable for any loss you may suffer if a third party gains unauthorised access to any information you provide.

We accept donations via our website and social media using Charity Checkout, Stripe, Just Giving, Launch Good, Smart Debit, and Facebook. We consider these to be reliable sources and well-known platforms that are used by a variety of charities. However, we disclaim any responsibility for their mistakes or errors, as well as any losses you may incur as a result of using their platform. Your financial transaction becomes their responsibility if you reach their platform for payment. If you'd like to contact them, please contact our office for their contact information. We make no guarantee that the functions contained in our sites will be uninterrupted or error-free, that defects will be fixed, or that our sites or the servers that make them available will be free of viruses or bugs, or that the materials will be fully functional, accurate, or reliable.

Complaints Procedure

All of Crisis Aid's donors, volunteers, helpers, and supporters are treated with the utmost respect.

As a result, we serve the public and are conscious of our responsibilities. We will, nonetheless, make mistakes, despite our best efforts, because that is human nature. We need your assistance, advice, and assistance in correcting them so that we can provide a better service to everyone.

To register your concerns or complaints, please email us at [email protected]

If you file a complaint within one month of the incident, we will make every effort to respond and provide you with a response within 14 days. If the situation necessitates additional time, we will notify you in writing. Within 30 days, we aim to resolve all grievances and conflicts.

Liability

We do not limit our liability in any way to the extent permitted by law for fraud, death or personal injury caused by our negligence or breach of statutory duty, or any other liability that cannot be excluded or restricted under applicable law.

Links

Links to third-party websites may be found on our sites. These links are provided solely for your convenience. Such websites are not necessarily under our control, and we are not responsible for their content. The mere presence of these links does not imply any endorsement of the content on those websites or any affiliation with their owners. You do so entirely at your own risk if you visit any of the third-party websites related to or from our websites. We cannot ensure that these links will function at all times and we have no control over the linked pages' availability.

If you want to link from your website to any of our pages, you can do so only if you link to the page rather than replicating it and only if you follow the following regulations:

We reserve the right to revoke permission to make website links to our sites at any time and in our sole discretion.
If any of these terms are found to be illegal, invalid, or otherwise unenforceable under the laws of any country to which these terms apply, The provisions that are illegal, invalid, or unenforceable within the country in which these terms apply will be severed and deleted from these terms, and the remaining provisions will survive, remain in full force and effect and continue to be binding and enforceable.

If you breach these terms and we do nothing, we retain the right to use our rights and remedies at a later date or in any other situation where you breach these Terms.

Events beyond our control

If the delay or breach is due to acts of God, civil commotion, riots, malicious damage, floods, drought, fire, legislation, failure of an isp or telecommunications provider or any other cause outside our reasonable control, we will not be liable to you for any delay or breach of our commitments. This has no bearing on your legal rights.

Law, courts and language

These terms, as well as your use of our websites and our provision of services, are governed by and interpreted in accordance with English law. In the event of a dispute arising out of or relating to these terms, your use of our sites, or our provision of any services, the English courts will have jurisdiction. These terms, as well as our websites, are only available in English.

Donations

All appeal donations are subject to availability, and we reserve the right to refuse service to any company or individual.

Your donation represents an offer to purchase the appeal that you have specified, but it is not binding on us until we have approved it.

All donations made in response to a specific appeal will be closed and used only for that purpose. The following is an exception:

Double Donation

Please WAIT and DO NOT REFRESH THE PAGE if your browser freezes while making a donation. You will be charged TWICE if you REFRESH the page. If this happens, please contact us.

Refund Policy

Please contact our team by email, phone, or postal if you want to cancel your donation before it is used for your requested appeal or project:

If an order to distribute the aid has not been placed, we will honour your cancellation and refund your entire payment. We do not provide refunds or cancellations if your donations have been used or if the order for the donation to be processed has been granted.

We will try to provide a full refund within 3 working days if your donation was made by accident, mistake, or computer error, as long as you notify us within 14 days. We cannot ensure a refund for any accident, mistake, or computer error reported to us after 14 days if we are unable to trace the error on our systems.
