When you become a Friend of Cinemuse, you authorise us to deduct a donation each billing period, at the then-current rate, to the payment account you provide when you signed up to Friends of Cinemuse.
‘Billing period’ means monthly if you choose to pay monthly or annual if you choose to pay annually.
If you choose to pay monthly for your Friends of Cinemuse donation, payment will be charged to your chosen payment account each month.

Your Friends of Cinemuse donation will continue at the end of each billing period until you cancel it (please see below for details regarding how you can cancel your Friends of Cinemuse donation).

You must cancel your Friends of Cinemuse donation before it renews at the start of the next billing period in order to avoid the next billing period’s donation being billed to your payment account.

There are generally no refunds or credits made for Friends of Aeon donations. However, if you believe a charge was made in error, rather than lodging a dispute, please contact us first so that we can resolve it quickly and arrange a refund if appropriate. The reason being that disputes lodged with financial institutions may result in charges to Cinemuse, which can be costly for a charity.

When you signed up you will have created an account or would have used your existing PayPal or PayFast account.

You may cancel your Friends of Cinemuse donation at any time, and you will continue to have access to the Friends of Cinemuse benefits until the end of that calendar month.
If a payment is not successfully settled, due to expiration, insufficient funds, or otherwise, and you do not edit your payment account information or cancel your account, we may cease your Friends of Cinemuse benefits.
