Credit card donations

Users making a payment/donation by credit card hereby agree and assure CCRT that;

  1. All charge cards or credit cards information supplied is true, correct and complete;
  2. The person making the payment/donation is duly authorised to use the charge card or credit card for that purpose, and;
  3. The payment/donation and the fees will be honoured by the donor’s credit card company.

If you discover that a payment/donation has been made on the CCRT website using your charge card or credit card details in circumstances where you had not agreed to or authorised this, then (provided you have not, through failure to take reasonable care, allowed an unauthorised person to gain access to your charge card or credit card details or password), CCRT is required to refund to you the money that was received from you, provided that: (a) you inform your charge card or credit card company and CCRT of the unauthorised payment as soon as you discover it; and (b) you cooperate with your charge card or credit card company and CCRT, if necessary, the police in relation to unauthorised use of your financial details.

All payments/donations made via the CCRT website are final unless fraudulent use of the card is proven in accordance with the above statement.

How do we protect your information?

We use a secure server so that all supplied sensitive/credit information is transmitted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology and then encrypted into our Payment gateway provider’s database (Realex Payments). When you make an online transaction, Realex Payments provide us only with the following details: the final 4 digits of your card number, the card type and the expiry date. We do not see or store your full card details when you make an online transaction.

The CCRT takes, and will continue to take, all reasonable steps (which includes relevant technical and organisational measures) to guarantee the safety of the data you provide to us and we will only use the data for the intended purpose.
