8. Refund and Return policy

8.1 Right of withdrawal

You have the right to withdraw from this contract within 14 days without giving any reason.

The withdrawal period will expire after 14 days from the day of the conclusion of the contract.

To exercise the right of withdrawal, you must inform us of your decision to withdraw from this contract by an unequivocal statement (for example a letter sent by post, fax, or email). Our contact details can be found below. You may use the attached model withdrawal form, but it is not obligatory.

You can also electronically fill in and submit the model withdrawal form or any other unequivocal statement on our website.

If you use this option, we will communicate to you an acknowledgement of receipt of such a withdrawal on a durable medium (for example by email) without delay.

To meet the withdrawal deadline, it is sufficient for you to send your communication concerning your exercise of the right of withdrawal before the withdrawal period has expired.

8.2 Effects of withdrawal

If you withdraw from this contract, we shall reimburse you all payments received from you, including the costs of delivery (with the exception of the supplementary costs resulting from your choice of a type of delivery other than the least expensive type of standard delivery offered by us), without undue delay and in any event not later than 14 days from the day on which we are informed about your decision to withdraw from this contract. We will carry out such reimbursement using the same means of payment as you used for the initial transaction unless you have expressly agreed otherwise; in any event, you will not incur any fees as a result of such reimbursement.

If you requested to begin the performance of services during the withdrawal period, you shall pay us an amount which is in proportion to what has been provided until you have communicated to us your withdrawal from this contract, in comparison with the full coverage of the contract.

Please note that there are some legal exceptions to the right to withdraw, and some items can therefore not be returned or exchanged.  We will let you know if this applies in your particular case.

24. Donation Payment and Purchasing Terms and Conditions

7 Billion Presidents (referred to as “we”, “our” or “us”) is a registered ANBI Foundation in the Netherlands (kvk: 80984797). We operate the website www.7billionpresidents.org. These Terms and Conditions govern each time you make a donation payment (referred to as “service” “donation”… or …. ) through the website. 

These Terms and Conditions (referred to as “terms” “agreements” or “conditions”) apply separately to each single donation that you make. By confirming on the Website that you wish to make a donation, you agree to be bound by these Terms and Conditions for that donation.

​​Our Privacy Policy also governs your use of our service and explains how we collect, safeguard, disclose and process your personal information, that results from your use of our web pages.

Your agreement with us includes these Terms and our Privacy Policy. By using this service, you acknowledge that you have read and understood Agreements, and agree to be bound by them. If you do not agree (or cannot comply) with Agreements, then you may not use the Service, but please let us know by emailing sales@7billionpresidents.org so we can try to find a solution. These Terms apply to all visitors, users and others who wish to access or use this service.

The following terms and conditions shall be observed:

(1) The donation services
We will use your donation at our discretion but within our stated charitable objectives.
All payments through the Website are to be made by Ideal, PayPal, cash or direct transfer.
Please note that we only accept payment by cash if handed to a 7 Billion Presidents employee, from whom you will in return receive a receipt. Upon request, we will send a receipt.
Once you confirm to us through the website that you wish to proceed with your donation, your transaction will be processed through one of our payment services providers, WooCommerce or PayPal, as selected by you. You authorise WooCommerce to request funds from your credit, debit, or PayPal card provider.

 

(2) Information from you
Before we can process a donation you must provide us with (i) your name, address and email address; and (ii) details of the credit or debit card that you wish to use to fund the donation. We will use this information to process your donation. It is your responsibility to ensure you have provided us with the correct information.

When you submit your payment details, these details will be transferred to one of our payment providers, and your payment data will be collected and processed securely by them. You should make sure that you are aware of WooCommerce and/or PayPal’s terms and conditions, which are different from our own, to ensure that you are comfortable with how they will process your personal data before you make a donation.

https://www.paypal.com/uk/webapps/mpp/ua/useragreement-full#make-payment

We won’t share your personal details with any other third party other than is set out in our Privacy Policy. Our Privacy Policy forms part of these terms and by agreeing to these terms, you are also agreeing to the way we use and protect your personal information in line with our Privacy Policy.

 

(3) Refund policy
7 Billion Presidents donors and supporters are incredibly important to us. Without your help, we simply wouldn’t be able to build an inclusive Regenerative Economy, which is wellbeing-focused, with the aim to provide healthy air, water and food for all by 2037. In common with all registered foundations, 7 Billion Presidents are constrained by ANBI Foundation Law, which means that we are only able to refund a donation in certain prescribed circumstances.

If you believe that a donation you have made should be refunded, please contact us within 14 days. Donations arising from a sponsored event are not dependent on the supporter concerned completing the event and so cannot be refunded if the event or challenge is not completed.

We truly appreciate your donations and support, and recognise that there may be an occasion when you need to speak to one of our team to discuss your donation. Please reach out to us via email sales@7billionpresidents.org with any concerns.

 

(4) Delivery, Risk of Loss
7 Billion Presidents’ preference is to hand deliver every gift, especially when living close to one of our employees. This is because we believe every gift should be given personally and personal is what we think you deserve for supporting our cause. However, iff this is not possible, we will send gifts via post through PostNL or DHL, although we are not liable for damages caused by third parties. 

 

(5) General
We reserve the right to amend these Donation Payment Terms and Conditions at any time. These Donation Payment Terms and Conditions are governed by Dutch law and are subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the Netherlands court.
