  1. Acknowledgements and agreements: You acknowledge and agree that Give a Trap are only facilitating a Donation between the Affiliate and you. The Products and any information in relation to them, including text and graphics, have been provided to the Website by the Affiliate and as such are provided on an “as is” basis with no warranty. To the maximum extent permitted by law, Give a Trap disclaims all representations and warranties, express or implied, with respect to such information, services, products and materials, including those in relation to merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, title, non-infringement and warranties arising from course of dealing or course of performance.
  2. Eligibility: Products can only be purchased by Eligible Donors. Any Order from a person who is not an Eligible Donor, will not be processed and will be cancelled.
  3. Pricing: The prices for the Products are in New Zealand dollars and include allc costs, including delivery charges, required to fulfill the Donation. We reserve the right to amend or rectify.
  4. Donating: A Donation is an offer to purchase one or more Products. When we receive a valid Donation from you we will accept this offer by confirming via email that we have received and are processing the Donation. The Affiliate will then be notified of your Donation and it is the Affiliate who will be responsible for packaging and arranging delivery of your Donation to the party for which the Donation is intended. Once your Donation has been dispatched you will receive an email notification of this.
  5. Delivery: It is expected that a Affiliate will dispatch the Donation within ten (10) working days of it being placed, which will be sent to the stated address by courier on a non tracked basis. It is expected, unless the Affiliate states otherwise, that deliveries to an urban address will be received within six working days of an Donation being dispatched, and in the case of rural delivery within eight working days of an Donation being dispatched.
  6. Refunds: Give A Trap will refund all donations made that are fraudulent due to unauthorised use of a credit card. In all other circumstances, refunds of donations will be at the discretion of Give A Trap, unless in the event of returning funds raised for a specific purpose that has not been fulfilled by Give A Trap as agreed. In assessing whether refunds of donations can be facilitated, we will determine whether the donation in question has already been applied to a charitable purpose or whether it is available to be released back to the donor.
  7. Returns: The Affiliate is required to meet their obligations contained in the Consumer Guarantees Act and the Fair Trading Act along with any other terms they may have in relation to returns stated on the Affiliates’s page of the Website or their own website. Please admin@giveatrap.org.nz in the first instance if you have any concerns about the quality of the product.
  8. Invalid affiliate: At the date of distribution, if any Affiliate that you have named in your Donation does not exist or has been amalgamated with another Affiliate or has changed its name, such Donation will not fail but Give a Trap will Donate it to the Affiliated organisation which they consider most nearly fulfils the objects intended to benefit.
