- All donations to the society are final, and non-returnable. Any equipment loaned to the society must have the terms of the loan (e.g. time period and/or conditions of fair use) laid out clearly before the loan is accepted.
- The society shall not feel obligated to reimburse a donator in any way. Donations should be given freely for the benefit of the society and its members, not for personal gain.
- Only equipment that has a direct and immediate use, or a clearly defined planned near-future use, shall be accepted. We simply do not have the storage capacity to collect items that 'may be useful someday'.
- A clear log shall be kept of who, what and when equipment was donated, and kept in a prominent place so as to honour our benefactors.
- The Society can not be held responsible for the safe keeping of any items loaned or otherwise to it. Whilst every effort will be maintained to protect it, any subsequent damage or theft is entirely at your own risk.
- The Society retains the right to return or dispose of any item that threatens, or is believed to threaten the safety rules laid down by the Student Union and the University.
- The Society may use, or dispose of donated equipment (non-loan items) in any manner that benefits the society, this includes potentially selling items in order to raise funds to purchase more directly useful items, or donating or swapping equipment with others for good will and favour towards the society.
