We accept no liability for any failure to comply with this agreement where such failure is due to circumstances beyond our reasonable control.

If we waive any rights available to us under this agreement on one occasion, this does not mean that those rights will automatically be waived on any other occasion.

To the extent permitted by law, any condition or warranty that would otherwise be implied into these terms and conditions is hereby excluded. Where legislation implies any condition or warranty, and that legislation prohibits us from excluding or modifying the application of, or our liability under, any such condition or warranty, that condition or warranty will be deemed included but our liability will be limited for a breach of that condition or warranty to one or more of the following:

if the breach relates to goods:
• the replacement of the goods or the supply of equivalent goods;
• the repair of such goods;
• the payment of the cost of replacing the goods or of acquiring equivalent goods; or

This disclaimer set out in these terms and conditions does not attempt or purport to exclude liability arising under statute if, and to the extent, such liability cannot be lawfully excluded.

You agree to indemnify, defend and hold us, our officers, directors, employees, agents and representatives harmless from and against any and all claims, damages, losses, liabilities, costs (including reasonable legal fees) or other expenses that arise directly or indirectly out of or from: (i) your breach of this agreement; (ii) any allegation that any materials that you submit to us or transmit to the website infringe or otherwise violate the copyright, trademark, trade secret or other intellectual property or other rights of any third party; and/or (iii) your activities in connection with the website. This indemnity will be applicable without regard to the negligence of any party, including any indemnified person.

Supporterships do not carry voting rights. Although we’re a non-profit organisation, our work does not yet qualify for tax deductibility status, therefore our Supporterships aren’t tax deductible. At our sole discretion, the Adore Animals Foundation reserves the right to refuse any person taking out a Supportership.

Joining the Affiliates program of the Adore Animals Foundation does not automatically qualify your organisation as an Affiliate. To be eligible for our Affiliates program, organisations must be registered charities or not-for-profit organisations (although tax deductibility is not a requirement) and they must reflect our views of respect, care and protection of animals and humans. Funds received from our Affiliates program must be used for the positive benefits of animals or humans. Your Affiliate application will be assessed by the Adore Animals Foundation on an individual basis.

Once accepted into our Affiliate program, the Adore Animals Foundation reserves the right to suspend or retract an application at its sole discretion. The Adore Animals Foundation also has the right, at its sole discretion, to withhold commissions to organisations who we believe are misusing or misappropriating funds.

Payments to Affiliates are calculated monthly, and are generally paid within 14 days of the end of the previous month. Payments are calculated automatically by our Affiliate software program E-junkie.

Customers can purchase products on the Adore Animals Foundation website using the PayPal system. The price paid is fixed at the time of ordering. An order cannot be cancelled after it has been submitted. It is the customer’s responsibility to ensure the product delivery address is correct. The Adore Animals Foundation takes no responsibility for a non-deliverable product because of errors in the delivery address provided.

Delivery will be via post and will be paid for by the customer at the price indicated at time of purchase. If you have received a faulty or damaged product, please email us within seven days of receiving the product to tell us about the nature of the damage. If this damage is found to be no fault of the customer we will happily issue a replacement. All faulty products need to be returned to the Adore Animals Foundation; please contact us to arrange return.
