6. COLLECTION OF THE AIRFUND BOND
What are The AirFund Bond based on
As Account Holder in The AirFund you can earn Bonds from your Confirmed contributions to The AirFund from participating Retailers and where possible the transfer of rewards from other digital wallets.
The transactions you make are not with us but with participating retailers.
Cashback is paid by the retailers and their tracking agencies for your applicable transactions, where the credit can be traced directly to your account by means of an identification tag provided in the reports of the retailers and their tracking agencies. Such cashback is (where applicable) credited to you in the form of The AirFund Bonds, subject to your preferences for charitable contribution and the allocation formula. Tracking of transactions can fail due to a number of factors – please do not make decisions on purchases based upon The AirFund Bonds as it is not guaranteed that any or all purchases will be tracked correctly. Please refer to section 7 ‘What can stop you from earning The AirFund Bonds’ below for more details.
From time to time retailers may increase or decrease the cashback paid. As this cashback is converted into The AirFund Bonds in accordance with these Terms and Conditions this means The AirFund Bond offer illustrated on our Site may be incorrect. Reasonable care is taken to ensure that the cashback data provided on this Website is accurate and up to date. However, we give no warranty as to the accuracy of any cashback data on the Website and do not accept liability for any errors or omissions; neither do we accept liability for any resulting damage or loss. By default, your applicable transactions will be credited in line with the cashback reported to us by the AirFund Retailer as Confirmed Purchases, which may be more or less than the advertised rate. Some retailers pay Cash Rewards on the purchase amount inclusive of tax and / or delivery charges and some retailers exclude these values for the purpose of calculating and awarding cashback.
When a transaction has been tracked to your account and subsequently confirmed by The AirFund Retailer as a Confirmed Purchase, we will show the amount as a credit on your account to be converted into bonds in The AirFund in accordance with these Terms and Conditions. If the goods are returned or the sale reversed or amended by any means, then the amount shown as a credit in your account will be amended accordingly.
We reserve the right to at any time reclaim or make balance adjustments accordingly where it has been established that any credit has been applied in error. This will include, but is not limited to, transactions where the credit is not genuinely due, or pay out for any credited transaction has not been received from an AirFund Retailer or its agencies.
The AirFund Bonds shall be priced in accordance with the daily Net Asset Value of investments made in the name of The AirFund with appointed FCA regulated professional entities.
By registering a payment card in connection with transaction monitoring, you authorise The AirFund and AirFunders Ltd to share your payment card information with Visa, MasterCard, Open Banking service providers such as The ID Co., and other necessary payment service providers (“Payment Service Providers”) to confirm your enrolment. You authorise the Payment Service Providers to monitor transactions on your registered card(s) and account(s) to identify purchases in order to determine whether you have qualified for an offer linked to your payment card, and for the Payment Service Providers to share such transaction details with AirFunders Ltd to enable your card-linked offer(s) and target offers that may be of interest to you.
The cards registered to your account do not need to be in the name of the AirFund Account Holder, but you, as the individual Account Holder, confirm that you have consent from the cardholder to register that payment card. We may ask that you provide written evidence of such consent at any time. If we are not satisfied that you have the cardholder's consent any and all payment cards registered may be deleted from your account.
You may opt-out of transaction monitoring on the payment card(s) and account(s) you have registered at any time by sending a request via the Support section of the Website or removing your card details from the “Accounts” page of the Website.
7. WHAT CAN STOP YOU FROM EARNING AIRFUND BONDS
There are a number of factors that can result in purchases you made with participating retailers not being credited to you as Confirmed Purchases which will affect the number of bonds in The AirFund you will be entitled to. For this reason, please do not make decisions on purchases based upon Confirmed Purchases or bonds in The AirFund as neither are guaranteed.
The following is a non-exhaustive list of examples of reasons why Confirmed Purchases may not have been credited to your account:
If your account is terminated or disabled for any other reason, then your cashback rewards, Outstanding Confirmed Purchases and bonds in The AirFund will be forfeited and any further transactions which could otherwise have been credited to your account will not be deemed eligible for bonds in The AirFund.
Cashback rewards and Confirmed Purchase status may be declined if the transaction is paid for using points, savings, promotional discount codes, or any other form of currency or credit earned via a loyalty scheme.
We cannot be held responsible if the AirFund Retailer fails to accept your sale as invoiced by us. AirFund Retailers have their own rules upon which they determine transactions to be genuine. For example, an attempt to simply earn each month by clicking / registering with no intention to continue to use / buy from their website could be deemed as non-genuine. Or, if The AirFund Retailer decides that your use or purchase (whether tracked or not) was deemed to have been provided by another website (such as, but not limited to, a comparison site or a search engine) then your transaction may not be applicable and will not earn bonds in The AirFund. These rules may or may not be advertised by ourselves or the retailer and may be discretionary.
If you are associated with more than one AirFund account (e.g. another family member’s account) then allowed transaction recurrences may be determined across these multiple accounts as part of fraudulent usage prevention.
Where a reward has been successfully paid by a participating retailer, you may receive a lower amount than expected, this may possibly be due to the amounts received by us being lower than the original claim.
Certain repeat purchases also may not qualify for bonds in The AirFund. Whilst we will use reasonable endeavours to recover non-payouts, the participating retailer or their tracking agent’s decision is final. We reserve the right not to chase missing reward claims, particularly where no purchase has been made. If a participating retailer still has not paid a manual cashback claim to us after a period of 3 months, then we reserve the right to close the query.
For the avoidance of doubt and notwithstanding any other provision in these Terms and Conditions or the retailers website, you agree that, in all circumstances, the issue of bonds in The AirFund is at our sole discretion and further we may refuse to issue bonds in The AirFund to you for any reason including, but not limited to, your non-compliance with these Terms and Conditions, non-pay out or late pay out of cashback rewards by the participating retailer.
8. REDEEMING AIRFUND BONDS
Your AirFund Bonds are redeemable upon the date of your 65th birthday (the “Maturity Date”), and the sum payable will depend on the capital growth which is calculated in accordance with the Allocation Formula. there will be opportunities, at the discretion of the company to transfer your entitlement to your own personal pension or to transfer your entitlement to another airfund member as nominated by yourself.
Further payouts from The AirFund charity may be possible at the sole discretion of the trustees of The AirFund Charity fund. When your bonds in The AirFund mature they will automatically be paid out to the bank account you have registered with us. This amount will be paid out as income in the tax year that the payment is received. If you do not receive transfer of such funds within 15 working days from the specific AirFund Bond maturing or such payouts cleared by the trustees of The AirFund Charity fund, you should contact us via email@example.com
For the avoidance of doubt, please note that any Outstanding Confirmed Purchases does not count towards any payment under AirFund Bonds issued to you.
