Salt 106.5 has developed a donation refund policy as part of our commitment to honouring and respecting the financial contributions that people make to Salt 106.5. We recognise the importance of donations and want to ensure we establish principles of transparency and fairness regarding the management of refunds.
This policy outlines the circumstances under which Salt 106.5 will refund a donation.
This policy applies to all those who make financial donations to Salt 106.5 and Salt 106.5 employees and volunteers responsible for processing and managing financial donations.
Salt 106.5 expects that anyone wishing to donate consider their decision carefully and check donation amounts during transactions.
Salt 106.5 recognises that it is possible to make an error when making an online donation or for the donors to change their mind about the donation made. It can also occur that an error can be made by Salt 106.5 or our financial institution.
Under this policy Salt 106.5 will endeavour to refund donations by the following principles:
If an error is made in making an online donation or if the donor changes their mind, we will honour all requests for refund that are made in writing within 30 days of the date the donation was made. The written refund request should include the details of the initial transaction including date, donation amount, donor’s name, ID, tax invoice number and the nature of the error.
Requests for refund can be sent by email or mail
Mail: PO Box 1234 Buderim QLD 4556
Salt 106.5 will fully examine all requests for refund and endeavour to ensure that genuine errors are rectified, however, we are under no obligation to give refunds, and the decision on refunds will be at Salt 106.5’s discretion.
If an amount is adjusted by Salt 106.5, the original receipt issued for the incorrect amount will become invalid, and a new receipt will be issued for the amount of the adjusted donation.
Salt 106.5 reserves the right to pass any refund transaction charged onto the donor
Refunds will be returned using the original method of payment – if donation has been made by credit card, the refund must be credited to that same credit card
Should an error be made by Salt 106.5 or our financial institution(s), a refund of the full amount will be made once we are notified of the error in writing.
