We would very much like to help the beneficiaries of failed campaigns by sending them at least the money from the purchases received from their campaign. Unfortunately, European banking law forbids us to do so.
Indeed, in Europe, money transfer is considered a financial activity. For this reason, it is reserved only for licensed financial institutions (banks, insurance companies, brokers, pool sites etc.).
Animal Webaction is not a pool site and therefore does not have the status of a financial institution: therefore, the law forbids us to transfer the funds from the campaigns to the beneficiaries of the campaigns.
In case of failure, we have no other option than to refund all buyers.
