Refund Policy and Considerations – GLOBAL WORKCAMPS 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 WORKCAMPS 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 WORKCAMPS 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 WORKCAMPS is unable to recover these advance payments so GLOBAL WORKCAMPS is required to adopt and enforce a strict policy against refunds, except as otherwise specifically provided in subsection 5.2 below.

Information on the GLOBAL WORKCAMPS 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 WORKCAMPS does not guarantee complete accuracy of the information contained on the website. Volunteers agree to further verify all information prior to departure
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 WORKCAMPS 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.
