Adoptors agree to not use any device, software or routine to interfere or attempt to interfere with the proper functioning of this online adoption.
Adoptors acknowledge that this online adoption is conducted electronically and that CNS, and other parties to the online adoption will therefore of necessity rely on hardware and software that may malfunction without warning.

You are solely responsible for providing accurate information that will be used to identify you to this online adoption system, to deliver notices to you and to allow the CNS team to contact you. If your contact information changes, then you are responsible for updating it. CNS will not be responsible for lost, delayed or misdirected notices in the event you do not update your information in a timely manner. CNS may refuse to provide services to anyone at any time in its sole discretion. You will be suspended or permanently banned from this site if you provide false information when registering, such as a false name or false contact information.

Our use of email addresses is strictly for contacting Adopters; any use of this private information by anyone else or for any other reason is strictly prohibited.
Description of Information
CNS believes the descriptions of lots appearing in this online adoption and in advertising prior to this online adoption to be correct. Nevertheless, neither those descriptions nor any oral statements made by CNS concerning any lot shall be construed as a warranty either express or implied. Lots are adopted “as is” – where is and with all faults. Adopter acknowledges that all lots will be made available for inspection if requested by Adopter and, by these terms, the Adopter is strongly encouraged to carefully inspect each lot in which Adopter has any interest. Adopter is to rely solely on personal inspection and not on information listed on this site or otherwise provided by CNS or any other person or entity (including SKM). If Adopter failed to inspect any lot, this failure to inspect, or otherwise be fully informed as to the nature, quality, condition, quantity and size of the lot, will not constitute grounds for any claim, adjustment, refund, termination of the contract for adoption, or refusal to close the adoption. These written terms constitute the final expression of the parties’ agreement and are a complete and exclusive statement of the terms of the contract for adoption, or refusal to close the adoption. The implied warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose, and all other warranties, either expressed or implied, are specifically excluded from this contract for adoption and this transaction and shall NOT apply to the merchandise that is the subject of this adoption and this transaction. CNS is not responsible for the actions the Adoptors take before, during, and after the online adoption, typographical errors, misprints, loss of merchandise/money, damage or failure of equipment, due to visits to this site. Use of this site is at Adoptor's own risk, and all content is presented “As Is”. Specific terms regarding adoption location, lot descriptions, payment terms, shipping and delivery, insurance and other important information is located on the first page of this site.
Adoption starts from S$88. Be aware that you may not be the only Adopter at the point of adoption, due to system delay. You will receive notification if another Adoptor closes the adoption ahead of you. In the event of such a situation, the earlier Adopter’s payment will be accepted and final, and your Adoption fee returned. There are no exchanges or refunds except express statement to the contrary expressed herein. An Adoption by any person shall be deemed conclusive proof that such person is familiar with the Terms of Use and that the Adopter agrees to be bound by them.
Every transmission over the Internet travels a different route and can be delayed by a variety of factors, including the Adoptor's own computer. The time lapse between submission of an adoption and its registration can vary by several seconds. Adoptions are queued by CNS’s host computer in the order received. Adoptions are awarded on a first come first served basis. Adoptions are time stamped by the host computer with the time received. Payment must be made in accordance with the instructions to the appointed collection agent Media Men Pte Ltd 200803552N (“Media Men”) via bank transfer/PayNow, and the details of the payment submitted via the online adoption form to be considered complete. If payment is not made, and CNS either through phone or email, is not able to contact the Adopter, the adopted figurine will be placed back for adoption within 5 working days, and the Adopter will be barred from making further adoptions from the Website.
In the event of malfunction by CNS’s host computer, the online adoption will be stopped. If the malfunction has not affected the adoption prior to the malfunction, the adoption will be considered complete. Adoption of any remaining lots will be completed upon correction of the malfunction. Adoption on the remaining lots will be open, with no adoption positions awarded upon resumption of the adoption. Any malfunction by the Adopter's computer or Internet service provider is not CNS’s responsibility. Placing an adoption is a binding contract between you and CNS, and the adoption cannot be retracted. Once an Adopter places a adoption, the adoption is final is cannot be retracted. CNS reserves the right to reject any and all adoptions.
As an Adopter, you are responsible for any adoptions placed by you or a designated representative under your name. The security of your adoption information is your sole responsibility and the Adopter will be responsible for any and all adoptions placed under his/her name. If, at any time, you feel that your Adopter details have been compromised, due to lack of security on your part, you must notify CNS immediately.
Adoption Retractions
There are no adoption retractions. ALL ADOPTIONS ARE NON-CANCELLABLE ONCE SUBMITTED. Once an adoption is made and confirmed, it cannot be retracted. When an adoption is made, you manifest your intent and ability to adoption the lot at the price. A false or fraudulent adoption may result in legal action. Any winning Adoptor who refuses to complete the adoption may be banned from all future adoptions and may be subject to legal action.
Despite efforts to avoid the withdrawal of lots from the online adoption after they are listed, it may sometimes be necessary to withdraw lots. Therefore, CNS reserves the right to do so at any time before or during the online adoption.
Adoption Price
All adoption lots will have a price starting from $88. The price will be displayed in the lot information screen. CNS reserves the right to accept or reject any or all adoptions unless otherwise stated.
Limit of Liability
In no event shall CNS and Media Men be liable for lost profits or any special, incidental, or consequential damages whatsoever arising out of or in connection with any adoption, sale or transaction.
CNS reserves the right to reject or void adoptions, that CNS deems not to have been made in good faith, or that are restricted, prohibited, or taxed due to local laws.
CNS is the one and only judge regarding the determination of winning Adopter, and the single deciding authority if disputes should arise, and accepts no liability for any errors or omissions. CNS reserves the right to reopen adoption on any disputed adoption.
CNS reserves the right to postpone or cancel an adoption without notice, if it is determined in CNS’s discretion that such action is appropriate for whatever reason in CNS’s sole discretion.
CNS will neither have liability nor obligation to the intended Adopters as a result of any withdrawal, cancellation, or postponement of any adoption.
Each Adopter, following his or her adoption, will receive an Acknowledgement of Adoption via email outlining the details of the transaction including payment, settlement, and final terms.
Intellectual Property Rights Associated with the Figurines
For the avoidance of doubt, the Adopter acknowledges that, in respect of the original design of the 3D “Singa" figurines (“Original Designs”) which are the subject of the lots, all intellectual property rights to such Original Designs shall remain the property of SKM but this shall not include the 3D “Singa” figurines, which are the lots and which are the subject of the online adoption.
Upon receipt of payment, CNS will inform successful Adopter on the collection procedure of the successfully adopted figurine.
Payment for adoptions must be made payable to the appointed collection agent Media Men Pte Ltd 200803552N (“Media Men”) via bank transfer/PayNow, and the details of the payment submitted via the online adoption form to be considered complete, unless otherwise noted in the specific online adoption's terms and conditions. All adoptions are in Singapore Dollars; all settlements will be paid in Singapore Dollars.
Monies Collected
All proceeds from the Adoption by 15 December 2020 will go towards the President's Challenge 2020. Adopters will receive an email acknowledgement upon successful submission for the adoption of the Singa figurine, and an email confirmation within three (03) working days of the email acknowledgement if the adoption is successfully verified. Adopters must be Singapore residents and provide their FULL NAME, NRIC, and ADDRESS to enjoy tax relief and for the final receipt to be mailed in January 2021 by the President's Challenge office.
Authorised Agents
Persons acting as agents must so indicate.
Default of Adoption
If any person with intention to adopt a lot and fail to pay for it in the manner described above, CNS shall have, in addition to all other legal rights, the right to reopen the lot, or, at CNS’s option, bring an action for specific performance, in which event the defaulting Adopter agrees to pay all costs of such suit, together with all reasonable attorney’s fees and expenses. In the event of a readoption, the defaulting Adopter agrees to pay all costs of readoption. If Adopter brings a lawsuit against CNS and does not prevail, the Adopter will reimburse CNS for all reasonable legal fees and expenses incurred in connection with said suit.
Adopters, CNS, and Media Men agree to indemnify and hold this online adoption site, its owner, and its parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, officers, and employees, harmless from any claim or demand, including reasonable legal fees, made by any third party due to or arising out of Adopter's and CNS’s use of the online adoption service, the violation of these terms of service, the infringement of the service using Adopter’s computer, or of any intellectual property or other right of any person or entity.
Legal Compliance
You shall comply with all applicable domestic and international laws, statutes, ordinances, and regulations regarding your use of our online adoption service and your bidding on, listing, purchase, solicitation of offers to purchase and sell lots.
No Agency
You and CNS and Media Men are independent contractors, and no agency, partnership, joint venture, employee-employer, or franchiser-franchisee relationship is intended or created by this Agreement.
We do not guarantee continuous or uninterrupted, or secure access to our online adoption services, and operation of our online adoption site may be interfered with by numerous factors outside of our control.
If any provision or portion of a provision of this Agreement is held to be invalid or unenforceable for any reason, such provision or portion of a provision shall be struck and the remaining provisions shall be enforced.
Headings are for reference purposes only and in no way define, limit, construe, or describe the scope or extent of such section. Our failure to act with respect to a breach by you or others does not waive our right to act with respect to subsequent or similar breaches.
Your Consent
By using our Website, you are consenting to the collection and use of your personal information including your full name, contact details by CNS. If your e-mail or other registration information changes please notify us immediately at singa2020@kindness.sg.
