Information on this Website about vouchers
YourCare will engage with suppliers of products and services and invite them to post discount vouchers. These vouchers will represent a price or percentage discount on the product described on the voucher.
Information provided to vouchers on the Website is based on material provided by third party service providers, suppliers and product manufacturers.
Except as required by law (including the Australian Consumer Law) we cannot be held responsible for inaccuracies or errors caused by incorrect information supplied to us or by these third parties.
All vouchers offered on the Website are offered on behalf of third party merchants. Any voucher shall be redeemable only for the specified goods or services from the relevant merchant of the goods and services and shall only be available for redemption during the period specified on the voucher. The merchant, and not YourCare, is the seller and supplier of the goods/services to which the voucher relates and is solely responsible for honouring any YourCare voucher you claim.
You agree to make your own enquiries to verify information provided and to assess the suitability of goods or services before you claim the voucher.
Claiming a voucher from the Website entitles you to the discount described on that voucher from the supplier who has listed that voucher.
Claiming a voucher is free on the website and members are not expected to pay for receiving the discount described on the voucher.
When a member claims a voucher listed by a supplier it is the responsibility of the member to redeem that voucher with the supplier. In doing so, the member enters into this Agreement and any terms and conditions of the supplier offering the voucher.
Vouchers will be accessible via your account. Your voucher will not be emailed to you and will only be accessible via your account. We cannot be held liable nor responsible for any loss suffered as a result of a voucher not being received by you due to circumstances beyond our reasonable control.
In relation to goods provided by a third party on redemption of a YourCare Voucher, you recognise that the third party merchant is the supplier of the goods, and not YourCare.
To the extent permitted by law (including the Australian Consumer Law), YourCare makes no warranty or representation regarding the standard of any goods or services to be supplied by the merchant.
The YourCare voucher does not function as a stored-value card and cannot be redeemed incrementally, unless otherwise specified by the YourCare voucher.
The YourCare voucher cannot be exchanged or redeemed for cash. A YourCare voucher cannot be combined with any other discount or promotional offer unless specified by the supplier of that voucher.
Neither YourCare nor the supplier of the voucher is responsible for lost or stolen vouchers or fraudulent use (by a person other than YourCare or the supplier) of the voucher’s unique reference number.
YourCare vouchers may contain terms and conditions known as the 'Fine Print' that supplement, and are to be read as in addition to, this Agreement. In the event of any inconsistency between the Fine Print and this Agreement, the Fine Print will prevail.
YourCare vouchers may be transferred, assigned or gifted to other persons (“Gift Recipient”) and may be redeemed by the Gift Recipient in accordance with this Agreement.
It is the responsibility of the person claiming the voucher to redeem the voucher in communication with the supplier of that voucher.
YourCare vouchers are free of charge for members and consequently there is no refund policy.
Participating in YourCare’s Crowdfunding platform
YourCare’s crowdfunding feature has been built to provide a network of mutual aid for members. Members can initiate a Campaign (Organiser) for financial assistance or provide financial assistance (Contributor) to the Organiser. Each Campaign, once initiated is sent to the connections of the Organiser. Currently there is a limited to each Campaign of $2500.
YourCare records information about each members ‘reputation’, including the number of claims for financial assistance and contributions to others. This information is used to inform Contributors and assist their decision to provide financial assistance to the Organiser. Members pay a monthly or yearly fee, which allows them to request financial assistance from their network of connections.
In providing this feature, YourCare operates as a peer to peer service. YourCare is not a financial institution, insurer, broker or charitable institution. YourCare provides the platform to allow members to provide mutual aid. YourCare in creating and administering the crowdfunding platform has taken reasonable steps to ensure each Campaign is conducted in a safe and secure way.
YourCare does not hold any money transferred between members. YourCare uses a payment platform called Stripe to administer our crowdfunding platform. By using Stripe, YourCare does not store any credit or debit card details of our members. When a Contributor makes a financial contribution, Stripe holds this payment in escrow. The total amount of money collected during the Campaign is then transferred to the Organiser at the end of the Campaign period. By using Stripe, YourCare complies with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). More information about PCI compliance can be found on the Stripe website.
YourCare expressly prohibits Organisers from using the platform for the purposes of equity-based crowdfunding. All campaigns must be a donation.
YourCare does not guarantee a Campaign will obtain a certain amount of contributions and we make no guarantee, explicit or implied, that any information provided through a Campaign is accurate.
We do not and cannot verify the information provided by the Organisers for each Campaign and do not guarantee that the contributions will be used in accordance with any fundraising purpose prescribed by a Campaign organiser. We expressly disclaim any liability or responsibility for the success of any Campaign, or the outcome of any fundraising purpose. YourCare is not a party to any agreement between either party in a Campaign. By using YourCare, you acknowledge that all information and content accessed by you, including the crowdfunding platform is at your own risk.
We assume no responsibility to verify whether the Contributions are used in accordance with any applicable laws. While we have no obligation to verify that the use of any funds raised is in accordance with applicable law and this Agreement we do take the possibility of fraudulent activity and the misuse of Campaign contributions very seriously. If you have reason to believe that a Campaign Organiser is not raising or using the funds for their stated purpose, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will investigate. You authorise YourCare to provide information relating to your Campaign to law enforcement and you acknowledge it is an offence to fraudulently misrepresent your situation or to make a false claim.
