They are effective from 28th January 2022 and will replace all earlier Switch Your Spend Limited terms of trade and any conditions contained in any document used by you and purporting to have contractual effect.
We reserve the right to change these terms of trade by notice to you. Notice may be given by posting the revised terms and conditions on our website.
Purchases from our online shop may only be made by persons who are acquiring goods or services for their own use or consumption, and you must not acquire goods from us via the website for resupply (whether in trade or otherwise).

What we giveFor every product you purchase through Switch Your Spend (either on our website or in person such as but not limited to when we are present at events), we will give exactly 12% of the price of the product excluding shipping costs to you, to your selected good cause.
If your selected good cause is not GST registered, we will deduct a GST component from what we give. This is 15% of the amount we are giving, which is 1.8% of the total sale excluding shipping costs to you. This will result in a give amount of 10.2% of the total sale excluding shipping costs to you.
We reserve the right to alter our give rate at any time.
When we giveWe endeavor to make payments to your selected good cause as soon as practically possible. Our company policy for doing so is that payments to good causes are made the month following when an order supporting them was placed, provided they have given us the required information to do so.
If a good cause fails to respond to our efforts to obtain this information before our next pay run, payment will not be made to that cause in that month.
Any monies owed to the good cause will be paid in full on the payment run immediately following the receipt of the information we require from the good cause.
Your Good Cause selectionWhen you use our website to make a purchase, it is your responsibility to select the Good Cause you wish to support with your purchase when you are prompted at the checkout.

If you do not select a Good Cause, our team may select one on your behalf in lieu of contacting you.
When your order is submitted, our team will endevour to check the eligibility of the Good Cause you have selected in accordance with our give criteria as soon as possible. However this cannot always be done prior to your order being shipped.
