Cookies policy

We are Easyfundraising Limited (company number: 04764164) and our registered office is at St Chad’s House, Suite 6, Cross Keys, Lichfield, WS13 6DN (hereafter "we" or "Easyfundraising"). This Cookies Policy describes the way in which we use cookies on our website at  www.easyfundraising.org.uk (the "Website").

This Cookies Policy applies to all users of the Website whether you are a visitor to the Website (a 'Visitor'), whether you have registered an account with the Website as a 'Supporter' (in which case this Cookies policy forms part of our  Supporter Terms) or if you have registered an account as a 'Good Cause' (in which case this Cookies policy forms part of our  Good Cause Terms). In this Cookies Policy we refer to Visitors, Supporters and Good Causes as 'you'.

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 and place cookies to help us keep track of where we should send your valuable donations.

What are cookies?

Cookies are small files of data that are placed on your device when you visit our Website in order to perform a variety of functions in relation to your use of the Website.

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 that to the supporter’s Good Cause. To earn this commission we place a cookie on the shopping site that identifies that the Supporter has come from Easyfundraising. These cookies are strictly necessary to perform the service and raise donations for your cause

Affiliate Networks

When you click through to a retailer from our Website, your browser redirects via an affiliate network which may drop a cookie on your computer. The cookie stores tracking information so that when you visit a retailer via our Website, any purchases made will result in the retailer reading this information. The retailer will then send us information about your purchase, at which point we can raise a donation for your cause. We recommend that you enable cookies in your browsers to make full use of our Website in order to ensure that any purchases are recorded.

Whilst the affiliate network cookie isn’t dropped by us, we want to tell you about it before you use our Website to make a transaction. By continuing to use our Website you consent to third parties such as affiliate networks and retailers as featured on our Website using cookies for the purpose of tracking and raising donations.

Other cookies we use

As well as using cookies to ensure you earn your donations, we use cookies to improve the performance of the easyfundraising service, including personalizing your experience, such as;

  • Tracking cookies. They allow us to recognise and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around our Site when they are using it. This helps us to improve the way our Site works.
  • Functionality cookies. We use cookies to recognise you when you return to our Site. This enables us to personalise our content for you, keep you logged in and remember your preferences.
  • Targeting cookies. These cookies record your visit to our Site, the pages you have visited and the links you have followed. We will use this information to make our Site and the advertising displayed on it more relevant to your interests. We may also share this information with third parties for this purpose.

Please note though that without cookies we cannot track any of your donations. If you decide to block our cookies this may mean that many of the features of the Website will not work.
