Under no circumstances the payment of the amount due will give the User the right to receive a tree or plant, or become the owner of a tree or plant of the project he/she joined and supported.

The amount due will have to be paid in the manner that will be indicated at the time of ordering. Whenever this amount is sent through bank transfer, the User has to send to Etifor a proof of the completion of the bank transfer within 15 days from the completion of the Order.

All the phases of the procedure for joining and paying the related amount due are clearly described in the pages of the Website, its texts and graphics. In particular, to complete the process for joining the service, the User has to fill in the electronic Form and transfer it electronically to the Seller by following the instructions provided.

In this form, a reference to these General Conditions – that contain information on the Cancellation Policy, a summary of the main features of the project supported and the related amount due (inclusive of all applicable taxes and fees), methods of payment, timeline, execution modalities and related services – is included.

The Order will be archived in our database for as long as is necessary to provide the aforementioned Services and not beyond the limits set by law. Since the object of the transaction consists of a service, the User will not receive any material good / product. The trees and / or plants of the projects will be planted and / or taken care of within the areas involved within the projects and identified within each information factsheet.

Moreover, these information, will not be used by Etifor for purposes other than completing the procedures of purchase, reimbursing in case of cancellation following the exercise of the right of withdrawal or signalling to police forces possible frauds committed through the Website.

The amount due for purchasing the services will be charged when Etifor will send the confirmation that the Order has been received. In the case of payment via PayPal, the charge will be accounted when the e-mail that confirms the completion of the Order is sent.
