Each person can submit subscription applications only once, and each application can subscribe to four banknote sets at most (two sets per charity collection).

e. If I submit my application and settle the payment successfully, does it mean that I can get the “New Banknote Charity Collective Sets”?

No, the allocation of Banknote Sets is not on a “first come, first served” basis. After the end of the application period, The Community Chest will handle the applications as follow:

The banknote set will go to the highest bidder if more than one bid are received. If two or more bids with same amount for a particular number are received, the set will be allocated by a draw to be attended by KPMG.
If there is over subscription for a particular charity set, the set will be allocated by a draw to be attended by KPMG.

f. After the application and payment have been completed, can I change the bidding / subscription items?

No. Applications cannot be changed or withdrawn after application.

Only one subscription application is allowed for each subscriber for either mail or online application. If more than one Application Form is submitted, the first Application Form will be deemed valid, and other duplicated applications made by the subscribers will be cancelled. (This does not apply to bidding applications.)
