Terms & Conditions

Terms and Conditions of Online Payment Services

Fung Loy Kok Institute of Taoism (the “Institute“) is a Canadian registered charity (registration #11893 4371 RR0001).  The Institute operates the website www.taoist.org (the “Website“). Below are the terms and conditions (the “Online Payment Ts&Cs“) which govern each use you make of the online payment services provided through the Website.

The Online Payment Ts&Cs apply separately to each payment that you make.  By making a payment on the Website, you agree to be bound by the Online Payment Ts&Cs for that payment.

(1) The Online Payment Services

The Institute will use your payment at its discretion but within its stated charitable purposes.

All payments through the Website must be made by credit card. However, the Institute also accepts payments by cash or cheque at the Institute’s head office at 134 D’Arcy Street, Toronto, Ontario, M5T 1K3.

Once you confirm through the Website that you wish to proceed with your payment, your transaction will be processed through the Institute’s payment services provider, American Payment Solutions (“APS“). By confirming that you wish to proceed with your payment, you authorise APS to request funds from your credit card provider. APS will process your payment in Canadian dollars.

(2) Charitable Tax Receipts

When you donate through the Website, you have the option to obtain a charitable tax receipt. This option is available only to Canadian taxpayers.

(3) Unauthorised Credit Card Use

If you become aware of fraudulent use of your credit card, or if it is lost or stolen, you must notify your credit card provider.

(4) Information from You

Before the Institute can process a payment, you must provide (i) your name, address, phone number and email address and (ii) details of the credit card that you wish to use for the payment. The Institute will use this information to process your payment. It is your responsibility to ensure you have provided the Institute with the correct information.

When you submit your payment details, these details will be transferred to APS, and your payment data will be collected and processed by them. You should make sure that you are aware of APS’s terms and conditions, which are different from the Online Payment Ts&Cs, to ensure that you are comfortable with how APS will process your personal information.

Your credit card details are not stored on the Website.

The Institute will not share your personal information with any other third party other than as set out in the Institute’s Privacy Policy.  The Privacy Policy forms part of the Online Payment Ts&Cs and by agreeing to the Online Payment Ts&Cs, you are also agreeing to the provisions of the Privacy Policy, including how the Institute collects, uses, transfers and stores your personal information.

(5) Refund Policy

If you make an error in your payment, please contact the Institute either by email at headoffice@taoist.org, by phone at +1-416-656-2110 or by mail at Fung Loy Kok Institute of Taoism, 134 D’Arcy Street, Toronto, Ontario, M5T 1K3 within 14 days and a full refund will be made to you.

(6) General

The Institute reserves the right to amend these Online Payment Ts&Cs at any time.

These Online Payment Ts&Cs are governed by Canadian law and are subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of Canadian courts, sitting in Toronto.
