Symantec has initiated a consumer charity rebate program that will enable customers that purchase selected Norton 2002 software products to donate cheque rebates of up to $40 to a range of Australian charities.
The charity rebate program, which runs until September 30, will assist charities such as the Royal Institute for Deaf and Blind Children, the Royal Flying Doctor Service, the Leukaemia Foundation and the Heart Research Institute.
Under the rebate program, customers will have the choice of keeping the cheque rebate for themselves or donating the rebate to one of the charities.
Carolyn Hay, consumer sales and marketing manager for Symantec Australia, said the charity rebate program was a first for Symantec as customers could choose how to use their rebate.
"We are confident the majority of customers buying these products will feel generous and donate their rebate to a charity."
Customers can participate in the charity program by purchasing Norton Internet Security 2002 Standard and Professional Edition, and Norton SystemWorks 2002 Standard and Professional Edition from participating retailers such as Harvey Norman, Officeworks and Dick Smith Electronics.
Customers taking up this offer are required to complete their details on the on-box sticker and send it, together with proof of purchase, to Symantec. Entries must be received by October 14.
