About cookies

Here at easyfundraising we strive to make it as simple as possible for you to raise funds for your favourite good causes. To make this happen we have to use cookies. Cookies are small bytes of data that are set within your web browser to help us keep track of where we should send your valuable donations.


How do we use cookies?

When you or any other supporter uses our site to go shopping at one of our retailer partners we earn a small commission from the retailer. We then pass on a donation to the correct cause of that supporter. To earn this commission we place a cookie that identifies that the supporter has come from easyfundraising.


Other cookies we use

As well as using cookies to ensure you earn your donations, we use cookies if you used a referral link to make sure that the cause that made the referral earns their additional donations, and also record usage statistics. We do all of this to ensure whilst you are using easyfundraising we give you the best possible experience.


Delete or block our cookies

If you want to delete or block our cookies you can do so using your specific browser's settings. Please note though without cookies we cannot track any of your donations. If you would like instructions on how to do this we recommend you look at the guides at AboutCookies.org
