Billing authorisation and refund policy
When you become a Friend of Aeon, you authorise us to deduct a donation each billing period, at the then-current rate, to the payment account you provide when you signed up to Friends of Aeon.
‘Billing period’ means monthly if you choose to pay monthly or annual if you choose to pay annually.
If you choose to pay monthly for your Friends of Aeon donation, payment will be charged to your chosen payment account each month. If you choose to pay annually for your Friends of Aeon donation, the total annual fee for the year will be charged to your chosen payment account 12 months after you made your first payment and annually thereafter.
Your Friends of Aeon donation will continue at the end of each billing period until you cancel it (please see below for details regarding how you can cancel your Friends of Aeon donation). If you choose to pay for your Friends of Aeon donation annually, we will send you a reminder 30 days prior to the date when your Friends of Aeon donation is going to renew. You must cancel your Friends of Aeon donation before it renews at the start of the next billing period in order to avoid the next billing period’s donation being billed to your payment account.
There are generally no refunds or credits made for Friends of Aeon donations. However, if you believe a charge was made in error, rather than lodging a dispute, please contact us first at email@example.com so that we can resolve it quickly and arrange a refund if appropriate. Disputes lodged with financial institutions may result in charges to Aeon, which can be costly for a charity.
If a payment is not successfully settled, due to expiration, insufficient funds, or otherwise, and you do not edit your payment account information or cancel your account, we may cease your Friends of Aeon benefits.
You can find details about Friends of Aeon donations and payment methods here.
