7.1 Use of Funds by Donees
Shout makes no representations or warranties in relation to the appropriate use by Donees of funds raised by use of the Site or the services provided.
7.2 Peer-to-Peer Fundraising
(a) Subject to 3.3(c) below, by allowing you to create a peer-to-peer page on the Site, Shout has appointed you as its agent for the purpose of raising funds for the Donee named on your peer-to-peer page. Shout may revoke that appointment at any time without needing to have a reason.
(b) By creating a peer-to-peer page on the Site, you accept the appointment as Shout’s agent to request donations from Donors on behalf of the Donee.

(i) a breach of this Agreement by you; or
(ii) any misrepresentation by you to the Donor.
(f) The fees payable in relation to peer-to-peer fundraising are set out in 4.3(f) and (g) below.
8.1 Donations and fees
(a) All donations are denominated in Australian Dollars and are not subject to GST. If you make a donation using an Authorised Currency (the NZ Dollar, British Pound or US Dollar), there will be additional costs that are detailed in our AUS Rate Sheet (see also paragraphs (b) and (c) below).
(b) Across some Shout platforms, before a donation is processed through Shout, there is a preselected option to ‘add fees and taxes to donation’ (Fees on top option). If you leave this checkbox selected for the Fees on top option, the amount processed on your credit card or through your PayPal account is increased to cover Shout fees, other transaction costs and taxes (see AUS Rate Sheet) so that the Donee receives the full amount of your intended donation (the increased amount will be clearly shown). For example, if you intend to donate $10, the total amount processed on your credit card or through your PayPal account will be increased to an amount (that will be displayed on the platform) to cover Shout fees, other transaction costs and taxes in relation to the donation so that the total amount the Donee receives is $10.
(c) If you do not wish to pay the fees, other transaction costs and taxes for the Donee for any Fees on top option, you must ‘opt-out’ by deselecting the checkbox before submitting the donation. This means that the Donee will receive an amount less Shout fees, other transaction costs and taxes (the Shout fees, other transaction costs and taxes are detailed in our AUS Rate Sheet).
8.2 Tax Deductibility
(a) We have been authorised by the charities to issues receipts to you on their behalf.
(b) PLEASE NOTE THAT SHOUT MAKES NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES AS TO THE TAX DEDUCTIBILITY OF ANY SUCH DONATIONS. You should obtain independent tax advice about the deductibility of your donation. For the avoidance of doubt, Donees that are for profit entities are not deductible gift recipients.
(a) All payments of donations will be made using a credit card or a PayPal account.
(b) Shout undertakes and agrees at its own cost to comply with the requirements of the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard 3.2 (‘PCI DSS’), and provide reasonable evidence of such compliance with PCI DSS upon request.
(c) Shout will utilise validated Level 1 Payment Card Industry (PCI) payment gateway services (collectively, the “Payment Processor(s)”) to process the payment of donations made by users via credit card.
(d) Payment Processors utilised by Shout comply with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS).
(e) Shout will not collect or store credit card data of users on its own systems. All card data handling and storage will be outsourced to the Payment Processors. Stored payment details can be used to process future one off payments or recurring payments.
(f) The Payment Processors will process the donation made by credit card and then distribute the funds to Shout. Shout will then distribute the money directly to the Donee monthly or an agreed to frequency (after costs are subtracted).
(g) When payment is made through a PayPal account, PayPal Australia Pty Ltd will distribute the funds to Shout. Shout will then distribute the money directly to the Donee monthly or an agreed to frequency (after costs are subtracted).
(h) Please note that Shout is not affiliated with the Payment Processors or PayPal Australia or any other payment method that may be used by us and we are not responsible in any way for the actions or performance (or lack thereof) of any such Payment Processor. Accordingly, Shout expressly disclaims responsibility and liability for all services provided by these Payment Processors, including those related to donation/payment and text transactions, and you hereby agree that Shout shall not be responsible for any loss or damage of any sort incurred as a result of such services. Additionally, since these providers will have access to the information you provide to them in order for you to make a donation/payment or text transaction, we recommend that you closely review any policies that may be detailed on their respective websites.
We cannot process refunds on behalf of Donees. Please contact the Donee directly and quote your Shout receipt number. If an error is made by us, full refunds will be made immediately upon notification of the error and all costs will be borne by us. If you have paid using an Authorised Currency, the refund will be processed in that same currency.

Once a donation is made, the transaction is final and not subject to dispute unless unauthorised use of your payment card or account is proven. If you become aware of fraudulent use of your card or account, or if it is lost or stolen, you must notify your card issuer or PayPal Australia Pty Ltd in accordance with its reporting rules.
