1. Introduction

The Terms and Conditions page explains the conditions of use of the Caritas Mauritius website. When you use Caritas Mauritius, you automatically accept all the rules detailed on this page. By using this website (the “Site”) and the services (“Services”) offered by Caritas Mauritius (as well as by, its agents, representatives, consultants, employees, directors, the Board of Directors, Administrators and Members), you agree to these legally binding rules (the “Terms”). You also agree to our privacy policy and agree to follow any other rules on the site.

These conditions may change without notice. However, we will inform you of any important changes, either by informing you on the site or by sending you an email. The new versions of the terms will never apply retroactively – we will tell you the exact date on which they will come into effect. If you continue to use the site after the announcement of a change, it automatically means that you agree to the new terms.

2. Create an account

To create an account, you must be 18 years of age or older. You are responsible for your account and all activity on it.

You can browse the site without registering for an account. However, to use some of the features of the site, you must register, choose an account name and set a password. When you do this, the information you provide us must be accurate and complete. Do not pretend to be someone else and do not choose names that might be offensive or that could violate anyone’s rights. If you do not follow these rules, we may cancel your account with immediate effect.

You are responsible for all activities in your account and the confidentiality of your password. If you discover that someone has used your account without your permission, you must notify us immediately.

3. Funding by donors

You will have the right to provide funds for various projects proposed by Caritas Mauritius (national and international). The details of the projects will be posted on the site. The financing of the various projects can be done by means of an online payment gateway, the MCB Juice service, a bank transfer or by check, but also by other means of payment (SMS, etc.) and can be done in any currency. Caritas Mauritius reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to authorize this financing by check, as a last resort and not by online payment.

12. Miscellaneous

These Terms and the other documents referenced herein constitute the entire agreement between you and Caritas Mauritius with respect to the Services. They replace all other communications and proposals (verbal, written or electronic) between you and Caritas Mauritius regarding services and govern our future relations. If any provision of these Terms is held to be invalid by law, that provision will be limited or removed to the minimum extent necessary for the Terms to remain otherwise in effect and enforceable. If you or Caritas Mauritius does not exercise the right provided for in these Terms and Conditions in any way, this will not be considered a waiver of other rights.
These conditions are personal to you. You may not assign, transfer or sublicense them unless you have Caritas Mauritius’ prior written consent.
