The National Reward Reward Scheme

Using the scheme is easy with no personal registration, logins or passwords required. There are no extra costs involved, all the prices, terms and deliveries are the same as going directly to the individual websites. Simply select the school, which will be remembered for future visits and use the links to shop online with your favourite retailers.


PRIVACY AND CONDITIONS
Our Aim


While schools manage their own budget, provided by the Local Education Authority, most schools also raise voluntary funds.

These "School Funds" are used to purchase supplementary equipment for music, sports, clubs, the grounds, library and the school environment, which go to improve life for the children.

Most schools have fund raising events and sponsorships from time to time. There is often the opportunity to make small donations.

Schools via the parents and friends collect tokens from stores and products to obtain equipment, but the rewards are often small or involve spending many thousands of pounds with one store.

The aim of The National Reward Scheme is to provide the supplementary equipment for schools without cost to the individual, by simply using the schoolfunds.co.uk website to find and purchase goods and services online.

There are no extra costs involved, all the prices, offers, terms and deliveries are exactly the same as if you went directly to the individual online stores.

NOTE:
Every effort has been made to check the content of the participating stores by schoolfunds. Schoolfunds does not accept companies with offensive, illegal, immoral or otherwise distasteful content. We have no gambling sites other than the national lottery website and sites that may contain free competitions as part of promotions.

Any website or retailer that does not to comply with our high ethical and moral standards will be removed immediately. This policy is to protect both the users of our website and the integrity of our participating retailers.

We may also offer additional free content on the Website from time to time (including news, weather etc.) provided by third parties.

Schoolfunds uses reasonable efforts to ensure the accuracy or content and availability of links on the Web Site. However, Schoolfunds does not control or take any responsibility for the content, accuracy, capability, safety, availability, legality or quality of items available on or through advertisers web sites or any third party web sites that may be accessed directly or indirectly via this Web Site, and is not liable or responsible for any actions you might take in reliance on the content of any such web site or this Web Site. Schoolfunds does not control or take any responsibility for any transactions between you and such sites (including as to personal data, confidential information or purchases of goods or services).

Nothing contained in the Services is an offer or promise by Schoolfunds or any advertiser to sell any product or service for a specific price or on any specific terms, and Schoolfunds does not guarantee the price, performance, terms, product, availability, information and/or services offered by any advertiser. In the event of any dispute with any advertiser or other third-party, you hereby release to the fullest extent allowable by law, Schoolfunds (and all Schoolfunds directors, employees, agents, content providers and service providers) from claims, demands and damages (actual and consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, suspected and unsuspected, disclosed and undisclosed, arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes.

The National School Reward Scheme

Unless otherwise specifically notified, Reward Points ("points") can only be earned via the schoolfunds web site, and through following all and any instructions regarding earning points. A participant's failure to correctly follow any required instructions or procedures may result in no points being earned, for which the participant will have no recourse against schoolfunds or any participating companies.

Points earned are recorded against your school account information, however any points earned are never available for redemption until payment has been received in full from the participating company where those points were earned to cover the cost allocation of those points.

Schoolfunds is not responsible for changes to, or discontinuance of any points earning opportunity through third party companies, nor are schoolfunds responsible for the inaccurate communication of points earned through a participating site, by that participating company.

The individual schools are responsible for assessing any tax implications that may arise through redeeming points, and for the payment of any said taxes.

To redeem points against free rewards the school account must have sufficient points accrued and fully paid for by the relevant participating companies. Points that have been allocated, but not yet paid for are never available for redemption. For practical purposes, the minimum number of points that can be redeemed is 1000 points per redemption.

Schoolfunds reserves the right to change the range of products and services available for redemption of points, as well as the number of points required to make any such redemption from time to time and will be communicated via the schoolfunds website.

Points may not be transferred to other accounts nor pooled together in any manner.

Unless specifically notified otherwise, all rewards supplied to use in return for points are provided solely by the named third party, and Schoolfunds makes no warrant in respect to any Reward. Rewards are purchased on your behalf from third party companies by Schoolfunds. You must exchange defective products or goods by following the supplier-designated procedures.

Schoolfunds points have no monetary value, and cannot be used for any purpose other than redeeming designated rewards. At no time will Rewards or points be available to be refunded for any cash value.

The sale or barter of points is strictly prohibited by schoolfunds.

You give permission to Schoolfunds to provide your customer details to third party companies for their use within the rules and restrictions of the Data Protection Act, unless you have indicated that you wish to "opt out". You have the full right to "opt out" of any third party communication at any time through notifying Schoolfunds of your wishes.

By joining the scheme you agree to allow Schoolfunds to communicate with you via email with suitable offers containing opportunities for earning points and Schoolfunds will always use this communication method responsibly. In the event that you are unhappy with the level of communication between Schoolfunds and yourself, you may leave the Scheme at any time by communicating your intention to Schoolfunds.

The school expressly agrees that no points are available for redemption until payment has been received in respect to these points, regardless of whether they appear in the school account information. Schoolfunds will not be responsible for the non-collection of any monies due in relation to the points, and the subsequent non-issuance or removal of points from the school account for this reason.

We may from time to time adjust the school account upwards or downwards in respect to accounting errors, non-payment from third parties, refunds issued, products returned or suspected fraud, for which we have full authority.

Schoolfunds reserves the right to terminate the Scheme at any time. In the event of this, you will have 30 days from the notice date of the Scheme termination to redeem any points as per the above terms and conditions. Unless specified otherwise, no additional points will be able to be accrued during this Termination period.

Schoolfunds will make every effort to communicate to all participating schools the termination period, however we will not be held responsible for failing to notify any school regardless of the reason.

Schoolfunds may modify this agreement from time to time, with or without notice, and your continued participation in the Scheme will be deemed as your acceptance of the new terms and conditions.

A schools participation and acceptance into the Scheme is subject to these terms and conditions, and participation may be refused at the sole discretion of Schoolfunds without recourse. Any fraud or abuse of the system will result in the immediate termination of that account and total forfeit of any points accrued.

All questions or dispute regarding the Scheme, including without limitation, questions regarding participation and eligibility must be submitted in writing within 90 days of the query where applicable, to Schoolfunds.co.uk, 59 High Street, Littleton Panell, Devizes, Wiltshire. SN10 4ES. Any such dispute will be resolved by Schoolfunds at their sole discretion. All interpretations of these terms and conditions shall be at the sole discretion of Schoolfunds. In the event of an error by Schoolfunds your sole recourse will be the crediting of any disputed points.

Annual Prize Fund

The prize fund accumulates points from companies where schoolfunds are unable to award them to a specific school for what ever reason. The prize fund will also include bonus points and promotional points awarded by schoolfunds.

The prize fund will be allocated to actively participating schools from time to time as detailed on the website. The allocation will be randomly selected by an official of schoolfunds on or shortly after the closing date for the draw. The decision of the allocation is final.

The names of the prize winning schools will be posted on the website and the points added to their total.
