ADMINISTRATION OF CONTRIBUTIONS
All contributions to ACML need to be made through the “become a supporter link” on theneweuropean.co.uk (the Website).
Contributions received by The New European will be deposited in one or more bank accounts in the name of ACML together with other ACML funds.
From the moment the contribution is processed, ACML will be legally and beneficially entitled to the full amount of the contribution and the supporter has no entitlement to the return of a contribution in any circumstances other than as specified in these Terms and Conditions.
REFUNDS AND CANCELLATION OF CONTRIBUTIONS
Supporters shall be entitled to receive a refund of their contribution for up to 14 days after payment by notifying ACML by email at email@example.com. No refunds will be given if you notify us that you wish to cancel your contribution after 14 days of becoming a supporter.
We reserve the right to request that you return any of the goods you have received, at your cost, if you cancel your contribution to us. Goods need to be returned in the same condition as which you have received them, and if they are not received in the same condition we reserve the right to charge you the retail value of the goods.
Should The New European cease publication within 14 days of you becoming a supporter you will receive a full refund of your contribution.
The New European reserves the right to refuse and return any contribution in its absolute discretion, including without limitation where it believes that accepting the contribution would conflict with the mission, values or interests of The New European or ACML, and/or where, having regard to the source of the contribution or intentions of the supporter, ACML considers that to accept the contribution could damage the independence or reputation of ACML or adversely affect the relationship of ACML with other supporters or stakeholders.
Any refunded contribution shall be repaid into the account from which the contribution was made.
TRANSPARENCY OF CONTRIBUTIONS
The New European reserves the right to:
- Request the full name and contact details of the supporter;
- Request from the supporter any other reasonable information that it considers to be necessary or desirable to determine the provenance of the contribution;
- Publicly disclose the identity of the supporter with the supporters consent (such consent shall be deemed given if the supporter opts to have their name in The New European);
- If the supporter refuses to provide any information reasonably requested by ACML, ACML may refuse and return the contribution to the supporter at its discretion.
CONFIDENTIALITY AND PUBLICITY
Supporters shall not be entitled to publicise their contribution or otherwise market themselves or any connected person or business in connection with their contribution, except with the prior written consent of The New European and then only if the supporter complies with any written requests of The New European.
Supporters shall not be entitled to imply or promote any form of relationship between themselves and The New European, unless agreed in advance in writing by the Editor of The New European.
DATA PROTECTION AND PRIVACY
If a supporter opts in to receive information relating to offers from The New European via the email address supplied by the supporter then he or she may unsubscribe at any time by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
EXCLUSION OF LIABILITY
Neither ACML nor any affiliated person, employee, agent, officer or director shall be liable for any loss suffered by any supporter or other person arising out of or in connection with a contribution, whether direct or indirect, including loss of revenue, loss of profits, loss of business or anticipated savings, loss of use, loss of goodwill, loss of data, and whether caused by tort (including negligence), breach of contract or otherwise, except in respect of any liability for death or personal injury or any other liability which cannot be excluded or limited under applicable law.
A failure of ACML to assert a right or provision under these Terms and Conditions shall not constitute a waiver of that right or provision.
If any provision of these Terms and Conditions is held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable for any reason, that provision shall be eliminated or limited to the minimum extent such that the remaining provisions of these Terms and Conditions will continue in full force and effect.
This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between the supporter and ACML in respect of any contributions made by the supporter.
These Terms and Conditions are not intended to confer any contractual benefit on any person pursuant to the terms of the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999.
The Agreement and any non-contractual obligations arising out of or in connection with it will be governed by English law and subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of England and Wales.
