The user will be able to make donations through the website by entering the value to be donated or by selecting a default value.
Donations will be processed through the following payment processors:
Payment for the respective donation will be charged to the credit/debit card or PayPal account immediately after the donation is made, depending on the amount chosen by the donor. Once the transaction has been processed, we will send you an electronic receipt of the transaction to the email address you provide.
If you find any inconsistency in your billing, please contact us through our contact details or you can make the claim through the customer service of the corresponding payment processor.
If your card is declined, you will receive an error message. No payment will be charged to your card and no order will be processed. There may be a pending transaction on your account until your card issuing bank withdraws the authorization. This usually takes 2 to 5 business days.

The user will be able to cancel the monthly donations at any time to avoid the next automatic monthly charge.
