Club Contributors - Terms and Conditions

The Res Populi Club of Spain (“the Club”) would like to provide an opportunity for its supporters to make a financial contribution to the Club and thereby help it in its mission to promote the values of classical republicanism and cosmopolitanism and support our commitment to providing the Club with financial and policy independence into perpetuity.

Contributions will be used by the Club to support its actions and operations.

These Terms and Conditions govern the relationship between the Club and each Contributor, including the terms on which contribution may be accepted, refused, or returned by the Club. Contributions will be accepted in the form of a one-off payment or recurring monthly payments made directly to the Club as described in these Terms and Conditions.


1. AGREEMENT

By making a contribution, a Contributor agrees and acknowledges that:

  • the contribution is provided to the Club as an irrevocable gift, subject to any exercise of the Contributor’s right to receive a refund as described below and the Club’s right to return any contribution at its discretion;
  • the contribution will be used by the Club to support its actions and operations; and
  • the contribution is made subject to these Terms and Conditions, which shall constitute a legally binding agreement between the Contributor and the Club (the “Agreement”), entered into by each party in consideration of the other’s obligations under these Terms and Conditions.

2. RECURRING CONTRIBUTION PAYMENTS

You agree to pay your selected contribution amount on a rolling monthly basis.

You must provide us with complete and accurate payment information at the time you agree to pay a recurring monthly contribution. Payment for your recurring contribution can be made by credit or debit card or by PayPal.

Your payments will be taken on a rolling basis and your recurring contribution will continue unless and until it is ended by either of us in accordance with the provisions of section 5 (Refunds and Cancellation of Contributions).

Recurring contribution amounts can be changed without cancellation when you pay with credit or debit card. If you pay with PayPal, the old amount will be cancelled and you will need to confirm the new amount.

3. CONDITIONS

Contributions will only be accepted from individuals.

Contributors must be aged 18 or over.

The maximum aggregate contribution from any one Contributor is €2,000 (two thousand euros).


4. ADMINISTRATION OF CONTRIBUTIONS

All contributions to the Club shall be made through the contributions page on respopuli.org (the “Club’s Website”). Contributions will be accepted by the Club for the period during which the contributions page is live on the Club’s Website.

Contributions received by the Club will be deposited in one or more bank accounts in the name of the Club together with other Club funds. Each contribution will be identifiable by a unique identification number and accounted for separately by the Club.

From the moment the contribution is processed, the Club will be legally and beneficially entitled to the full amount of the contribution and the Contributor has no entitlement to the return of a contribution in any circumstances other than as specified in these Terms and Conditions.

The Contributor shall receive no benefit in return for any contribution and shall have no rights to influence the actions or output of the Club.

Contributions to the Club are not charitable donations under the law of Spain and, as far as the Club is aware, Contributors shall not be entitled to any tax relief in respect of their contributions nor are any contributions eligible for “gift aid” either in Spain or in any other jurisdiction worldwide.


5. REFUNDS AND CANCELLATION OF CONTRIBUTIONS

The Club reserves the right to refuse and return any contribution in its absolute discretion, including without limitation where it believes that accepting the contribution would conflict with the mission, values or interests of the Club, and/or where, having regard to the source of the contribution or intentions of the Contributor, the Club considers that to accept the contribution could damage the independence or reputation of the Club or adversely affect the relationship of the Club with other Contributors or stakeholders.

Contributors shall be entitled to receive a refund of their contribution for up to 14 days after receipt of payment by notifying the Club by email at contribuyentes.respopuli@yahoo.com. Any requests for a refund of a contribution received by the Club following expiry of the 14 day period will be ineligible.

Any refused and/or returned contributions shall be repaid into the account from which the contribution was made.

Recurring contributions can be cancelled at any time, simply email contribuyentes.respopuli@yahoo.com.

Cancellation requests will be confirmed within 48 hours.


6. TRANSPARENCY OF CONTRIBUTIONS

The Club reserves the right to:

  • request the full name and contact details of the Contributor;
  • request from the Contributor any other information that it considers to be necessary or desirable to determine the provenance of the contribution;
  • undertake any further investigations it deems fit to determine the provenance of the contribution; and
  • publicly disclose the identity of the Contributor and the amount of the contribution.

If the Contributor refuses to provide any information requested by the Club under clause 5.1, the Club may refuse and return the contribution to the Contributor at its discretion.


7. CONFIDENTIALITY AND PUBLICITY

Contributors shall not be entitled to publicise their contributions, except with the prior written consent of the Club and only if they comply with any relevant policies, procedures or requirements of the Club.


8. DATA PROTECTION AND PRIVACY

If a Contributor opts in to receive information relating to offers from the Club via the email address supplied by the Contributor then he or she may unsubscribe at any time by contacting dataprotection.respopuli@yahoo.com.

Any personal information about a Contributor obtained by the Club as a result of a contribution being made will be used in accordance with the Club’s Privacy Policy. By making a contribution, the Contributor accepts the Terms and Conditions of the Privacy Policy.


9. EXCLUSION OF LIABILITY

Neither the Club nor any affiliated person, office-holder or employee shall be liable for any loss suffered by any Contributor or other person arising out of or in connection with a contribution, whether direct or indirect, including loss of revenue, loss of profits, loss of business or anticipated savings, loss of use, loss of goodwill, loss of data, and whether caused by tort (including negligence), breach of contract or otherwise, except in respect of any liability for death or personal injury or any other.


10. MISCELLANEOUS

A failure of the Club to assert a right or provision under these Terms and Conditions shall not constitute a waiver of that right or provision.

If any provision of these Terms and Conditions is held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable for any reason, that provision shall be eliminated or limited to the minimum extent such that the remaining provisions of these Terms and Conditions will continue in full force and effect.

This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between the Contributor and the Club in respect of any contributions made by the Contributor.

The Agreement and any non-contractual obligations arising out of or in connection with it will be governed by Spanish law and subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of Spain.
