JustGiving’s Terms of Service
Our terms of service describe what JustGiving does for you and the charities and other good causes you are
supporting, and what we kindly request of you as a user in return.
We operate in a number of countries and these core terms of service apply in each. There are some country
specific terms which also apply. Please click here for your relevant country specific terms of service in
Australia or United Kingdom.
Here are the key points:
- Online Giving - we run and maintain a website that processes donations on behalf of the charities and other good causes
featured on it. For this service, and the support we provide to them and their supporters, charities and other good
causes pay us a transaction fee of up to 5% on the donation. Because we promptly pay donations to charities and other
good causes, we regret that we can only refund a donation if the charity or other good cause expressly requests it, and
they can pay us back. Please get in touch with the charity or other good cause first. For certain causes on the website,
we may not process your donation until after a specified fundraising target has been achieved. Where this applies it will
be made clear at the time of your donation. Alternatively, for these causes, we may process the donation upfront but if the
fundraising target is not achieved you will be able to choose to: give your donation to your chosen project in any event; or
transfer your donation to another good cause on the website. For these causes, we regret that no refund will be provided.
- If you create a JustGiving fundraising page or use any of our other services, please remember JustGiving is for everyone.
We’ll remove offensive, obscene or racist content on the rare occasions when we find it – and we may terminate membership as a result.
Please also make sure that the content you upload to the site, especially pictures, is not copyright-protected.
That’s it. If you want the full, extended version, here it is:
JustGiving is a trading name of the local JustGiving entity as identified in the country specific terms of service.
JustGiving operates www.justgiving.com (the "Website") and its associated services. These core terms of service
(and the relevant country specific terms) (together the "Terms of Service") govern your use of the Website and its
associated services. Please read these Terms of Service carefully. If you do not wish to be bound by these Terms of Service,
you should not continue to use or access the Website or its associated services.
These Terms of Service may change or be updated from time to time. It remains your responsibility to access and check these
Terms of Service wherever you access the Website. The latest version of these Terms of Service will govern any future
usage by you of the Website and its associated services.
About the charities, good causes and organisations featured on the Website
The Website and its associated services allows you to donate to, and raise funds for,
any of the causes listed on the Website ("Causes") which could include charities, certain non-charitable
good causes referred to on the Website as JustGiving Projects ("JustGiving Projects") and other listed organisations.
Every Cause featured has a contractual agreement with JustGiving authorising JustGiving to collect donations on its behalf.
Causes are listed on this Website at JustGiving's discretion, however we cannot accept responsibility for the activities
of the Causes. A charity must have the appropriate authorisation, permit or licence to operate as a charity, as required by
the local laws of the territory in which it operates. You should note that JustGiving Projects are probably not charities
therefore you should read the description of them carefully and be happy that they are genuine and suitable to receive your donation.
Different charities, JustGiving Projects and other organisations can have similar names: it is your responsibility to check that
you are donating to the Cause you intended.
Subject to the requirements of applicable local laws, and what we say below in relation to JustGiving Projects, once your donation is
made, it will only be refunded to you with the prior written consent of the Cause to whom it has been made, regardless of
whether or not the donation had been paid to the Cause by JustGiving. Before a donation is refunded, the relevant Cause must
agree that JustGiving may, subject to local applicable laws, deduct the amount to be refunded from subsequent payments to be made
by JustGiving to the Cause. Where no further payments are due to be made to such Cause within one (1) week of the refund being
made to you, JustGiving reserves the right to invoice the Cause for the amount of the refund and the Cause must agree to settle
that invoice within one (1) month of the date of the invoice. In relation to JustGiving Projects, JustGiving may not charge your
donation to your payment card account (using the details you provide at the time of donating) until after the fundraising target
has been achieved. Alternatively, JustGiving may charge the donation to your card account at the time of donating but if the
JustGiving Project fundraising target is not achieved JustGiving will allow you to either: make your donation to the JustGiving
Project in any event; or transfer your donation to another Cause on the Website. For donations made to JustGiving Projects no
refunds will be provided, subject to applicable local laws. If you do not agree to this you should not use the Website to make
donations to JustGiving Projects.
Use of your donation
JustGiving does not warrant that your donations will be used for any particular purpose and shall not be responsible for any dissatisfaction
you may have regarding the recipient Cause's use of any donation you may make through the Website or its associated services or websites
powered by us or for any misuse or non-use of such donations by the recipient Cause. After donations are made, all further dealings
are solely between the donor and such recipient organisation.
Please note that recipient organisations (excluding JustGiving Projects) reserve the right to use your donation for their general purposes.
They will use your donation for any purpose in accordance with their own rules. JustGiving cannot guarantee that funds will be earmarked
for a particular appeal. If you want your donation to be used for a specific purpose or for a particular appeal you should contact the
organisation and make your donation directly to them.
JustGiving will verify the identity of a JustGiving Project creator when they set up a JustGiving Projects page but JustGiving shall have no
liability to donors whatsoever for any use or mis-use of donations made to the JustGiving Project. The JustGiving Projects service is
intended to open up fundraising activities for good causes which are not charities. The JustGiving Project may state that they will use
donations only for specific purposes however JustGiving cannot guarantee that they will use it for such purpose. If you have any doubts
as to how the money will be spent then you should contact the JustGiving Project directly to seek reassurance. It is your sole responsibility,
as a user of the Website, to ensure that the good cause stated to be supported on a relevant JustGiving Projects page is one that you wish to support.
JustGiving charges a small transaction fee on every donation made on the Website or its associated services. The fee
is currently up to 5% of the gross donation. Subscription fees also apply to member charities for additional services. For
full details please visit www.justgiving.com/charities.
Unauthorised card use
When a donation is made on the Website and charged to your card the transaction is final and not disputable unless unauthorised use of your
payment card is proved. If you become aware of fraudulent use of your card, or if it is lost or stolen, you must notify your card provider
in accordance with its reporting rules.
Protecting your password
When you register with JustGiving and choose a password to protect your secure account, you are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of
your password. If you become aware of any unauthorised use of your password, we recommend that you change your password immediately or
call our helpdesk on the telephone number set out on the Contact Us page.
JustGiving is not an accounting, taxation or financial advisor, and you should not rely on information given on the Website or its associated
services to determine the accounting, tax or financial consequences of making a donation to charity, not-for-profit or JustGiving Project.
We strongly recommend that you consult your own adviser(s) about any accounting, taxation or financial consequences that may affect you.

JustGiving reserves the right to cancel your membership and delete any JustGiving page without notice in the event of a breach of the above rules.
Building a JustGiving page in aid of a Cause in no way implies JustGiving's or the Cause's endorsement of your
fundraising activity. Many Causes disapprove of, and do not wish to be involved in, dangerous sports or unusual challenges.
It is your responsibility to check with the Cause first that your chosen activity does not contravene the Cause's policies.
JustGiving reserves the right, at its absolute discretion and without notice, to cancel your personal fundraising page at the
request of the Cause, in the event that the Cause, in its absolute discretion, deems your fundraising activity inappropriate or

visitors to the Website. Whilst we will do our best to select partners of the highest integrity, we are not responsible for any aspect of

Governing law - These Terms of Service and any contractual or non-contractual dispute arising out of or in
connection with your use of the Website or the associated services are governed by the law of New South Wales, Australia
and are subject to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of New South Wales, Australia.
SPECIFIC TERMS OF SERVICE FOR THE UNITED KINGDOM AND ALL COUNTRIES OTHER THAN AUSTRALIA (SAVE WHERE INDICATED OTHERWISE).
These additional terms apply and will prevail where you access the Website or associated services in the United Kingdom or any other part of the world (other than Australia).
The local JustGiving entity and the company who provides the service to you is Giving.com Limited, whose registered office is at 1st Floor,
30 Eastbourne Terrace, London, W2 6LA (registration no. 3871904), United Kingdom.
Gift Aid and tax (this section is applicable to UK Tax Payers only)
When you donate to a charity and certain Community Amateur Sports Clubs ("CASC's") on the Website or its associated
services and confirm that you are a UK taxpayer in accordance with the requirements of the Gift Aid scheme as they
apply from time to time, JustGiving reclaims Gift Aid on behalf of the charity or CASC under the UK government's Gift Aid scheme.
Every charity or CASC that is a member of JustGiving has a contractual agreement with JustGiving authorising it to reclaim
Gift Aid on its behalf. Charities and CASC's must be registered with the Charity Commission or exempt from registration for
JustGiving to reclaim Gift Aid on their behalf. JustGiving also features certain not-for-profit organisations and JustGiving
Projects, which are not eligible for Gift Aid reclaim. These are clearly listed on the Website as not eligible for Gift Aid
reclaim. Donations to these Causes are not tax deductible.
When a donation is eligible for Gift Aid reclaim, the fee JustGiving charges is up to 5% of the gross donation, which
is the donation plus any Gift Aid reclaimed. When a donation is not eligible for Gift Aid reclaim, the up to 5% fee applies to the donation alone.
Non member charities (applies to the UK only)
JustGiving also runs a "non member charity" service. This means JustGiving will also feature on our Website most of the charities
registered with the Charity Commission for England and Wales, even if they are not one of our member charities. We have made
arrangements to allow donations to be made to non member charities through the JustGiving Foundation, who will collect Gift Aid
on their behalf. The JustGiving Foundation provides a purely administrative role in collecting donations and reclaiming Gift Aid
on behalf of the non member charities.
When JustGiving sends a donation to a non member charity, JustGiving will send the non member charity a cheque for the
donation plus the Gift Aid, minus JustGiving 's standard 5% fee (see the "Gift Aid and tax" section above). If the non
member charity accepts the donation by cashing the cheque an agreement will be formed with JustGiving. If they do not accept
the cheque they will not enter into any agreement with JustGiving and the donation will not be processed. It may take up to
six months from when JustGiving passes your donation on to the charity to confirm that the donation will not be processed as
cheques are valid for this period. If the non member charity sends the cheque back to JustGiving earlier, JustGiving is unable
to make payment or doesn't feel it is appropriate to pass on a donation (for example, if a charity has been de-registered by
the Charity Commission or has a sanction listed against them) then JustGiving will contact you so as to return the donation
to you. If JustGiving is unable to contact you then JustGiving will select an appropriate alternative charity to pass the donation to.
JustTextGiving (applies to the UK only)
JustTextGiving is one of JustGiving's associated services. It is a text giving service that processes donations and JustGiving
reclaims Gift Aid on behalf of the charities featured on it. JustGiving does not currently charge charities or donors for this
service, although JustGiving reserves the right to charge the transaction fee in the future. If JustGiving does decide to
charge for the service, JustGiving will tell you in advance.
Text donations may be refunded in certain circumstances (such as where the donation was sent from your mobile phone by mistake
or without your permission) at the absolute discretion of your mobile phone operator. If you wish to request a refund you
should contact your mobile phone operator to discuss this with them. There is no obligation for your mobile phone operator to
provide a refund and they may choose to refund only part of the donation if they wish. Because JustGiving pays donations via
text to charities regularly, we regret that we can only refund a text donation if the charity expressly requests it, and they
can pay us back. Please get in touch with the charity first.
Your mobile operator will pass 100% of the text donation onto JustGiving. The minimum text donation is GBP £1 and all
donations must be in whole pounds sterling. The maximum text donation allowed is GBP £10 for all mobile operators. Donations
sent via text will usually incur your standard text message fee. Please refer to your tariff for details of your standard text message fee.
After you send a donation via text JustGiving will send you a text message in response, confirming your donation and
providing you with the opportunity to add Gift Aid to your donation. JustGiving will include a link to a Gift Aid page
where you can provide your details to enable JustGiving to collect Gift Aid on your behalf. Alternatively, JustGiving may
send you a text message asking if you would like to add Gift Aid to your donation and to reply to this text message giving
your name, address and postcode. If you reply to JustGiving text messages regarding Gift Aid your mobile operator will charge
you one standard text message fee.
User conduct - you, as a user of the Website, must not provide a donor with any gift, prize or any other form of incentive in
connection with the making of any donation by the donor.
JustGiving fees - All payments referred to in these Terms of Service are exclusive of Value Added Tax, where applicable.
Disclaimer and Limitation of Liability - The times at which JustGiving shall undertake general maintenance and upkeep
of the Website will be between 12.00am and 08.00 hours (GMT) at the weekends.
Governing law - These Terms of Service and any contractual or non-contractual dispute arising out of or in connection
with your use of the Website or the associated services are governed by English law and are subject to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the English courts.

You further represent, warrant and undertake that no fraudulent, criminal or otherwise improper uses will be made of

In consideration of using the Website and associated services, you shall pay a transaction fee to

Disclaimer and Limitation of Liability
Notwithstanding the provisions of the "Disclaimer and Limitation of Liability" section of the core Terms of Service,
JustGiving's total liability to you arising under or in connection with these Terms of Service, so far as such
liability arises out of or relates to your creation and/or use of a JustGiving Projects page, shall be limited to
the total fees paid by you to JustGiving under these Terms of Service for your use of the Website and associated
services during the preceding 12 month period ending on the date the circumstances giving rise to the liability arose.
During the term of your project and for a period of seven (7) years thereafter, the parties shall treat as strictly confidential
all information about the other which has been acquired as a result of the use of the Website and associated services and which

Terms of Service shall terminate automatically upon the removal by you or JustGiving of your JustGiving Projects page

Upon termination or suspension or denial of access to the Website and associated services, funds already received on your
