3. Gold4Gold Program

Once received by CAN Fund in accordance with this Agreement, all Donated Items will be catalogued and appraised by an independent appraiser. On the advice of the independent appraiser, CAN Fund will sell the Donated Item either (i) to Imperial Smelting and Refining Company of Canada Ltd. for smelting, or (ii) at auction through Ritchies Auctioneers.

Due to insurance limitations, and notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, CAN Fund is not responsible for packages that are:
(i) sent without tracking or signature upon delivery (such as any packages sent by regular mail); or
(ii) sent directly to CAN Fund instead of the address noted on the donation form.
You are responsible for, and will bear all costs and risk of loss or damage to, your Donated Items until they are duly received by CAN Fund or its representative at the address noted on the donation form.
We reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to refuse delivery of any package that appears to be damaged, opened or tampered with. We will have no liability to any customer for returning packages in this manner.

Appraisal of Donated Items
A tax receipt will be issued for the fair market value of any Donated Items. The fair market value of each Donated Item is determined by an independent appraiser. You will not be notified of the appraised value unless the appraised value is significantly above or below your stated value (as discussed below).
Appraisals Significantly Above or Below Your Stated Value
If the appraised value of any Donated Item varies by the greater of 30% from your stated value (as stated by you on the donation form), we will contact you by email to notify you of the appraised value of that Donated Item.
(i) if stated value is $600 then under the above formula the threshold for a notice is +/- $200
If you would like to talk with a CAN Fund representative about the appraisal, please indicate a telephone number at which you can be reached. Any telephone calls concerning appraisals may, in our sole discretion, be recorded.
If you wish to proceed with the donation at the appraised value, please reply to our email and indicate that you accept the appraised value.
If you do not wish to proceed with the donation at the appraised value, we will return the Donated Item to you at your expense. We will, in our sole discretion, choose the return carrier, insurance and receipt verification method for the shipment of the returned item. We will insure that Donated Item for a maximum of $100 (regardless of what you insured it for when you sent it to us), unless you notify us by telephone at 1-866-937-2012 and agree to pay for additional insurance. If you believe your Donated Item is worth more than $100, we recommend that you insure your shipment for the value that you think it is worth.
If you do not reply within seven (7) days of the date that the above email is sent, you will be deemed to have accepted the appraised value.
Cancelling a Donation
If you change your mind about donating any Donated Item and wish to cancel the donation, you must do so by email or by telephone no later than seven (7) days after our receipt of the Donated Item. If you do not contact us within that period of time, the Donated Items will no longer be available to be returned to you.
If you cancel your donation, we will return the Donated Item(s) to you at your expense. We will, in our sole discretion, choose the return carrier, insurance and receipt verification method for the shipment of the returned item. We will insure that Donated Item for a maximum of $100 (regardless of what you insured it for when you sent it to us), unless you notify us by telephone at 1-866-937-2012 and agree to pay for additional insurance. If you believe your Donated Item is worth more than $100, we recommend that you insure your shipment for the value that you think it is worth.
CAN Fund will issue tax receipts on a monthly basis, using the name and address on the donation form. Tax receipts will be issued for the fair market value of the item(s), as determined by the independent appraiser.
(i) CAN Fund will issue a tax receipt to donors only for Donated Items that are valued at $25 or more.
