We are Easyfundraising Limited, a company registered in England and Wales with a company number of 04764164 and a registered office at St Chad’s House, Suite 6, Cross Keys, Lichfield WS13 6DN (hereafter 'Easyfundraising, ‘we’ or ‘us’). These are our 'Supporter Terms' which govern the relationship between Easyfundraising and the registered users of our website (hereafter 'Supporters' or 'you') whose use of our website raises money for Good Causes (as defined below).
SECTION A: OVERVIEW
1. How the Website works: We are a for profit, private limited company which operates a website at easyfundraising.org.uk (the 'Website'). The Website is a donation platform enabling Supporters to effectively raise money for charities, schools, sports clubs, community groups and other good causes ( 'Good Causes'). Supporters are able to raise these monies as Easyfundraising has arrangements with certain retailers either directly or through affiliate networks (both retailers and affiliate networks being defined here as 'Retailers'). Under these arrangements if you do certain things ( 'Actions') Retailers pay monies to Easyfundraising as commission and Easyfundraising will pay such agreed proportion of these monies to a nominated Good Cause (a 'Donation') subject to these Terms. Easyfundraising retains part of the monies paid to it by Retailers before passing on any Donation to your Good Cause. You may also be able to donate money using your debit or credit card if the Good Cause you support has signed up for the service.
2. This is a Binding Contract: By registering as a Supporter you agree to be bound by these Supporter Terms which constitute a binding contract between you and Easyfundraising. By agreeing to these Supporter Terms, you are also agreeing to be bound to the following terms:

Transactions will subsequently appear on your debit or credit statement showing the Donation amount and will appear as an easyfundraising.org.uk transaction

To opt out of a Recurring Donation you can contact email@example.com
8.6.6. Supporters acknowledge that Recurring Donations may not be provided to or received by the applicable Good Cause if, subsequent to a Recurring Donation being arranged, such Good Cause becomes unavailable, unable to accept Donations, or chooses to stop receiving Donations, which may occur for various reasons, such as if the Good Cause becomes subject to an investigation or is suspended or removed from the Website.
8.6.7. You agree that, in the event of any non-termination of a Recurring Donation, Easyfundraising shall continue to be authorized to charge your Payment Method for the Donation in accordance with these terms. This does not waive our right to seek payment directly from you.

We may make every effort to amend or refund your Donation however we cannot guarantee this and shall not be held liable for the amount of such Donation or any bank fees or other costs you may incur as a result of the Donation(s)
9. Fundraising for Good Causes: For some Good Causes a Supporter can also actively raise funds for their nominated Good Cause.
9.1. To raise money for a nominated Good Cause, the Supporter shall be required to register as a fundraiser (“Fundraiser”) through the Good Cause page at easyfundraising.org.uk and can raise funds through: a) An organised event through which the Supporter is participating in order to raise funds. b) ‘In Memory’, through which the Supporter is raising funds in memory of a friend or family member c) Taking part in their own event where the Supporter sets up and completes a personal event to help raise funds
9.2. Indirect Donations: When Supporters establish a Fundraising page through which they are seeking to raise funds on behalf of a Good Cause they are supporting, the Supporter acknowledges that any monies raised will be passed on directly to the Good Cause and not the individual Supporter.
9.3. You acknowledge that Easyfundraising may take down any content you upload onto your Fundraising page at any time at its absolute discretion. Your continued use of the Website is subject to your compliance with the Website Terms.
9.4. Supporters acknowledge that Easyfundraising has no liability or obligations in relation to the method or means by which a Good Cause uses any monies raised for them through the platform.
10. Commission payments: Monies raised from actions are held by the Retailer and then paid to Easyfundraising as commission. No proportion of the commission is payable to you and, once paid, the Commission shall be retained by Easyfundraising to distribute the agreed proportion to Good Causes in accordance with these Terms.
11. Printable and Online Vouchers: On the Website, some Retailers provide online and printable vouchers containing offers which you may use. Such vouchers are unrelated to making Donations to Good Causes. You acknowledge that such vouchers are subject to any terms and conditions imposed by the Retailer. Easyfundraising is not responsible for the validity of the voucher, for any loss of Donations, or loss of any other benefit which might otherwise have been gained had a voucher not been used.
12. Relationship between you and Retailers: You acknowledge that if you decide to buy goods or services from Retailers that this is a private agreement between you and the Retailer. Any issue, defect or fault with goods or services you buy from a Retailer is the sole responsibility of the Retailer from whom you bought the goods or services.

Retailers may increase or decrease the Donations made in respect of specific Actions, from time to time.
14. Effectiveness of Easyfundraising's cookies: Our cookies (and other technologies) allow your Actions to be recorded and reported by Retailers to us. However, such cookies may not be effective if, for example, you have not gone directly from the Website to the Retailer's site to complete an Action, if you are using other similar platforms as Easyfundraising which also place cookies, or if you have a toolbar or similar technology from other similar providers of cash back services. This may be for a number of reasons, for example, another cookie may have overridden Easyfundraising's cookies, or the Retailer may have a specific policy when several cookies relating to similar services are placed on your device. Easyfundraising is not responsible for Retailers' policies, if a Retailer does not report your Action, or if a Retailer does not pay the Donation which you believe is payable.
15. Good Causes: As part of the process of registering on the Website, you shall be asked to select a Good Cause to which Donations you raise through Actions may be paid. You may change from one Good Cause to another using the "My Account" section of the Website. Easyfundraising subjects all Good Causes to a checking process in an attempt to ensure that only bona fide causes are registered as Good Causes on the Website. You acknowledge that whilst Good Causes are subject to the Good Cause Terms and checks, Easyfundraising gives no warranty as to the veracity of Good Causes, the activities Good Causes undertake, or how Good Causes spend any Donations. Please note that the payment of Donations to Good Causes is subject to the terms in Section D of the Good Cause Terms.
16. Retailers: We use our reasonable endeavours to ensure that all of the Retailers providing offers to Supporters are reputable. Easyfundraising would not work with any Retailer which Easyfundraising felt to be in bad taste and if anything contentious came to light about any of our Retailers, we would remove them from the Website. However, Easyfundraising gives no warranty or undertaking as to the veracity of Retailers or the activities and conduct of Retailers. Easyfundraising is also not responsible if a Retailer does not report your Action to us or if the Retailer does not pay the Donation payable as a result of your Action.
