A temporary 1 cent charge may appear as a ‘pending transaction’ in your internet banking. This is to validate your card – you will not be charged this amount, it will be removed by your financial institution within a few days.

The Website is enabled for online donations using a secure donation server. However, despite the security on the Website, you should be aware that there are inherent risks in transferring information across the Internet.

5. Personal Information

The Community Enterprise Foundation records on its fundraising database your name, address, email, telephone, amount donated, and if the funds are for a specified gift.

The Community Enterprise Foundation does not share your contact details with the organisation for whom funds are being raised.

When making a donation on the Internet, you are given the option to untick a box to opt out of receiving future email communications. If this is not changed, you may receive fundraising material from the Community Enterprise Foundation and your email address will be added to the Community Enterprise Foundation’s email database. You may remove your name from this database at any time. The Community Enterprise Foundation’s emails include an unsubscribe link to facilitate this.

6. Disputes and refunds

All complaints, grievances and disputes will be treated seriously, quickly and in a timely manner. If you believe that there has been an error with your donation, you should notify the Community Enterprise Foundation directly on 1300 304 541 and confirm that notice in writing or by filling in the online form as soon as possible so that the Community Enterprise Foundation can resolve your query quickly. Any issues should be directed to the Community Enterprise Foundation in the first instance so that the Community Enterprise Foundation can attempt to resolve the matter. If you are not satisfied with the outcome, you can still refer it to your financial institution which will obtain details of the disputed transaction and may lodge a claim on your behalf.
