Cancellation and Refund Policy - applicable to both volunteer and travel program

Refund Policy and Considerations. .
Global Volunteer Solution offered programs will cost you far less than other programs from other companies that will offer you the same itineraries and program quality. Interested parties are encouraged to compare our fees with other companies and see for yourself. As a consequence, Global Volunteer Solution operates on a much smaller profit margin and is therefore unable to provide and does not provide an open refund policy. Each participant is asked to weigh whether our services are worth our price, and decide for himself or herself if they can get quality service for their money. Global Volunteer Solution commits significant resources to arranging each Placement and Project. In most Host Countries, payments to Volunteer/Travel Coordinators, Country Coordinators, Project Staffs and/or the Host Families are made well in advance to pay for their commitments and services. Global Volunteer Solution is unable to recover these advance payments so Global Volunteer Solution is required to adopt and enforce a strict policy against refunds, except as otherwise specifically provided in subsection 5.2 below.

Credit Card Security
If you choose to use your credit card, please be assured that Global Volunteer Solution has taken all possible precaution to ensure system security and privacy. Customers who buy through the Global Volunteer Solution Volunteer & Travel online system are shopping on a secure server, which encrypts all of the customer's personal information including name, address and credit card number. Encryption ensures that no one can access or use personal information in an unauthorized manner. Our commerce system was developed in-house with security as its number one priority. This single entry point allows to maintain the tightest access control - eliminating (rather than closing) the backdoor. Global Volunteer Solution has made an investment in protecting our clients' and customers' information utilizing the following technologies:

Web Information
Information on the Global Volunteer Solution website is generic, and program location, geography and culture may not be exactly the same. Countries may vary in nature from what is written on the website, and it is the responsibility of the participant to research information about the host country on their own. The nature of these programs varies from location to location. Therefore, Global Volunteer Solution does not guarantee complete accuracy of the information contained on the website. Volunteers agree to further verify all information prior to departure

SSL (Secure Socket Layers)
Because we accept sensitive information from end-users such as passwords and credit card numbers, Asia Horizon’s site uses SSL. This logic encrypts the data being sent to the server from the browser using high-level encryption technology. Once the data is received from customers on the Global Volunteer Solution Network, it may be required that the data be maintained for a certain period of time inside our private network. Encrypting the data means it cannot be viewed in plain text.
