About the Causes featured on the Donation Web site
The Website and its associated services allow you to donate to and raise funds for any Cause listed on the Website. Every Cause featured has an agreement with “Ape Sathkaraya” joining Sri Dalada Maligawa (defined below) to collect donations on its behalf. Causes are listed on this Website at Sri Dalada Maligawa’s discretion; however, we are not responsible for the activities of any Cause. A shrine (Temple) must have the appropriate authorization, permit or license to operate as a charity, as required by the local laws of the territory in which it operates.
NOTE: Sri Dalada Maligawa crowdfunding pages are not intended to raise money for charities, so you should read the description of them carefully and make your own decision regarding the authenticity and suitability of the recipient to receive your donation. It is your responsibility to ensure that the organization or person to which you donate is the intended recipient.
Donations or Give
Subject to the requirements of applicable local laws, and what we say below in relation to Sri Dalada Maligawa Crowdfunding, once your donation is made it will only be refunded to you with the prior written consent of the Cause to whom it has been directed. In the event all funds have been paid out and there are no funds available for refund, Sri Dalada Maligawa reserves the right to invoice or direct debit the Cause for the amount of the refund and the Cause must agree to settle that invoice within one month of the date of the invoice. For Sri Dalada Maligawa will process your donation via the payment method used at the time of donating.
NOTE: no donations will be refunded for any reason, subject to applicable local laws. Occasionally, the person who created the page to which you have donated does not pass identity verification or other necessary checks, or there is some other reason that we cannot transfer the funds to them. If we are unable to transfer the funds to the Cause to which you donated, we will return your donation via the payment method from which you made the donation. If we are unable to return your donation via the payment method you used, your donation will be sent to another Cause, subject to the deduction of applicable transaction and payment processing fees.
