Terms & Conditions.
BWUK is established as a network of volunteers providing a quick response to an immediate request for assistance in situations related to animals in general & exotic pets specifically. It is not intended that any initial response or assessment of a situation by a BWUK officer or member constitutes a contractual arrangement. Assistance is given voluntarily & is proportionate to the urgency of need.
Where the services of BWUK are required (or can be predicted to be required) beyond the initial response for assistance then it would be necessary for the regional coordinator to review the situation with a senior officer of BWUK committee.
When the only practical assistance by BWUK is likely to incur expenses or require additional resources then this situation will require review by a senior officer of the committee with the prospective client & an agreement reached regarding funding or a donation to cover expenses.
Where there is an obvious need payment in advance may be requested. Other arrangements can be made at the discretion of the senior officer of the committee.
All agreed fees to be due to be paid in full within a thirty day period following either closure of the case or the withdrawal of BWUK involvement (if sooner)
