(a) All donations are non-refundable. However, if you have made an error in your donation, please notify your card provider immediately. We will consider authorising a refund in exceptional circumstances, but we reserve the right to apply a fee for the refund before such a refund is processed. Subject to the aforesaid, we will only consider your request for a refund if your request reaches us within 1 hour from your donation. Please contact us at email@example.com for requests for refund.

(c) Any donations made through the Website using a credit card or debit card are final. If you become aware that your credit card or debit card has been lost, stolen or is being used fraudulently, it is your responsibility to report the issue to your financial institution. We may, at our absolute discretion, refund the donation where we have investigated and are satisfied that the donation was unauthorised by you and that you (or anyone authorised by you) have not acted fraudulently or carelessly. We reserve the right to apply a fee to process such a refund.
(d) These Terms will apply to successive donations made through the Website where you have set up a recurring donation. When you set up a recurring donation you will be scheduling a series of donations to be made on a specific day of the month that you choose, on a monthly basis, until you cancel the recurring donation. You agree that these Terms will apply to each of the donations in that series. By confirming that you wish to proceed with a recurring donation you authorise our payment service provider MC Payment to request funds from your credit card or debit card on the day of each month that you have stipulated through your application on the Website.

In the event that the total donations received for a fundraising campaign and case exceeds what is required, you agree and authorise ROH to redirect your donation to other fundraising campaigns and cases at ROH.
In the event that you choose to donate to red and “unverified” cases before the cases are verified and the cases do not pass our ROH due diligence process or remains unverified for a period of 7 days, the cases will be taken down from ROH website. In such event, you agree and authorise ROH to redirect any amounts donated to unverified cases to other fundraising campaign(s) and case(s) on the Website, at ROH’s sole and absolute discretion.
(g) If you have requested for your donation to be made to a specific case or beneficiary, and we are unable to disburse donations to the beneficiary or recipient within a reasonable amount of time due to incorrect or insufficiently supplied details, we will try to contact the beneficiary or recipient to obtain the required information. If we are unable to find or contact the beneficiary or recipient and/or he/she does not respond to our inquiries within a reasonable period of time, you agree and authorise ROH to disburse your donated funds to other fundraising campaigns and cases on the Website at ROH’s absolute discretion. If the beneficiary or recipient contacts us after the funds have been redirected to another case of ROH’s option, you agree that your donation will be deemed disbursed in accordance with your specified purpose, and we will not be required to disburse any funds to such beneficiary or recipient. Keeping your personal contact details up-to-date is the best way to ensure donations are directed to where you want them to go should we need to contact you for further details on the beneficiary or recipient.
