Players Terms of Service

Funraising is owned and operated by Cedita Ltd, company number 08588677 whose registered address is Vanguard House, Merchants Quay, Salford, M50 3ST, hereafter "we", "Cedita" or "Funraising". There are our "Terms of Service" which govern the relationship between Funraising and the registered users of our website (hereafter "Players" or "you") whose use of our website raises money on behalf of Fundraisers (as defined below).

1. Overview

How the website works: We are a for profit, private limited company which operates a not-for-profit website at funraising.uk/funraising.app (the 'Website'). The Website is a platform enabling players to effectively raise money for charities, schools, sports clubs, community groups and other fundraising teams ('Fundraisers'). Players join events hosted by a Fundraiser and pay an amount via credit or debit card (where applicable) to participate, after which Funraising will pay such agreed proportion of these monies to a Fundraiser.

Entry to Fundraiser Events: Confirmation of entry to Events is delivered in the form of a confirmation email which is delivered by us. A request by you to purchase entry to an Event via this Website is an offer made subject to these Terms of Servce. Acceptance by us of your offer on behalf of the Fundraiser shall be deemed to be effective when your payment has been cleared and we have confirmed your order.

Additional Donations: You may optionally specify an Additional Donation when purchasing an Entry to an Event, which will form part of a payment back to the Fundraiser not subject to increasing any prize pool for an event, nor being subject to any Fees by Funraising. Any donations are not subject to Gift Aid or any other relief that may otherwise be available.

Cancellations and Refunds: Monies committed as part of an Entry fee to an Event cannot be refunded, and events can not be cancelled once created and the first Player has joined the event.

2. Registration as a Player

Registration Form: In order to register as a Player you must complete and submit our registration form indicating your agreemeent to these Player Terms of Service by clicking the box on the registration page. By doing so you promise that:

3. Event Prizes

Event Placing Rules: Funraising calculates positions for quiz events, based on number of correct questions answered, and then by time that it took to receive a final answer to break ties. Other events may have specific rules that will be shown on the detail page.

Payouts: Following event conclusion, if you have provided us with your Bank Details and/or a Give Back to Fundraiser %, your payment will be remitted within 3 business days. Should you have not provided us with Bank Detail information, nor configured a Give Back to Fundraiser %, you will be reminded and have up to 7 days from event conclusion to rectify this. After 7 days, your winnings will be automatically given back to the Fundraiser at a rate of 100%.

Fundraiser Terms of Service

1. Overview

How the website works: We are a for profit, private limited company which operates a not-for-profit website at funraising.uk/funraising.app (the 'Website'). The Website is a platform enabling members of the public registered on our website ('Players') to effectively raise money for charities, schools, sports clubs, community groups and other fundraising teams ('Fundraisers').

This is a Binding Contract: By registering as a Fundraiser, you agree to be bound by these Fundraiser Terms which constitute a binding contract between the Fundraiser and Funraising. By agreeing to these Fundraiser Terms, the Fundraiser is also agreeing to be bound by the following terms:

  • The Website Terms, which relate to what Players, Fundraisers and visitors to the Website may and may not do in relation to the Website and its content;
  • Our Privacy and Cookies Policy which relate to the ways in which we collect and use information about the visitors to the Website, Players, and Fundraisers;
  • any special terms which apply to competitions and promotions which Funraising may offer from time to time.

2. Registration as a Fundraiser

Fundraiser Administrator: In order to register as a Fundraiser, a person duly authorised to act on behalf of the Fundraiser (a 'Fundraiser Administrator') must complete our registration and application form on behalf of the Fundraiser and the Fundraiser's application must be accepted by us. It is acknowledged by Funraising that Fundraiser Administrators may be required to act on behalf of the Fundraiser from time to time. By completing a registration form and by acting as a Fundraiser Administrator, the Fundraiser Administrator promises that he or she:

  • is aged 16 or over in order to make use of the Website;
  • resides permanenetly in the United Kingdom;
  • has provided Funraising with information on the Fundraiser that is true, accurate and up-to-date, including the legal name of the Fundraiser, the Fundraiser Administrator's name and email address;
  • has the authorisation and authority to act on behalf of the Fundraiser, is only seeking to become a Fundraiser Administrator on its own account with respect to that Fundraiser (being the Fundraiser whose details are provided in the registration form) and is empowered to enter into this agreement with Funraising on behalf of the Fundraiser. Funraising shall have no liability for any claims, losses or damage suffered by a Fundraiser as a result of breach of this sub-paragraph.

Application Email: Once your registration and application form is complete, we shall send an email to the Fundraiser's primary email address as well as you to confirm such action has been taken.

Fundraiser Administrators are also Players: Whilst a Fundraiser Administrator will be able to use their account to administer their Fundraisers' fundraising activities, and Fundraiser Administrator's account can also be used in the same way as a Players' account. To the extent that a Fundraiser Administrator uses its account as a Player, the Player Terms shall apply and the Fundraiser Administrator agrees to comply with the Player Terms.

Fundraiser Administrators and multiple Fundraisers: Where authorised to act on behalf of different Fundraisers, a single Fundraiser account may be used in an administrative capacity with multiple Fundraisers, where that Fundraiser Administrator has initiated the application process.

Fundraiser requirements: By accepting these Fundraiser Terms, the Fundraiser promises that it:

  • is based in the United Kingdom;
  • has only one account registered on Funraising;
  • has not previously held an account with Funraising that has been terminated for any reason;
  • has a UK Bank Account active in its own name for the purpose of receiving remittance. Where the Fundraiser is registered with the Charities Commission, HMRC as a CASC, CIC or CIO, then the bank account should be owned by the Fundraiser/organisation. On occassion Funraising may seek confirmation of the authenticity of the bank account details provided and the Fundraiser Administrator agrees to provide information when prompted to do so;
  • has provided accurate details of the reason the Fundraiser was established (the 'Purpose'), the name of the Fundraiser, the Fundraiser's geographical location and address and the details of the Fundraiser's registration as a charity, company or other corporate body (as applicable);
  • has a Purpose which is 'unselfish', which does not violate any applicable law and/or which is not otherwise: obscene, fraudulent or misleading, offensive, hateful, discriminatory, inflammatory or a promoter of violence, gambling or sexually explicit material. The Website is a fundraising tool and is not intended to be used for private, personal or commercial gain. Funraising reserves the right, at its absolute discretion, to decide whether it considers a Fundraisers's Purpose to be 'unselfish'; and
  • shall comply with all of the terms of these Fundraiser Terms and Website Terms (and Player Terms, if applicable).

Protecting the Fundraiser account: It is the Fundraisers' responsibility to keep its login account details secure. Any such details must be treated as confidential and not disclosed to any third party. We have the right to disable any account at any time if in our reasonable opinion a Fundraiser has failed to comply with this paragraph. If a Fundraiser knows or suspects that any third party knows its username or password then it must change it immediately or promptly notify us by sending an email to info@funraising.uk. We have no liability to a Fundraiser for any claims, losses or damage caused to a Fundraiser as a result of a Fundraiser's breach of this paragraph.

Investigation: Although Funraising shall use its reasonable endeavours to ensure that the Fundraiser complies with its obligations under these terms, Funraising has no duty or responsibility to investigate or ascertain whether the Fundraiser complies with such requirements. Funraising shall have the right to request any such documentation as it deems relevant to confirm the status of the Fundraiser (including that of the Fundraiser Administrator) or to confirm the compliance by the Fundraiser with these Fundraiser Terms. If the Fundraiser or Fundraiser Administrator does not provide such information Funraising may, if the Fundraiser already has an account, suspend access to such account until such information is provided or, alternatively, terminate the account and, if the Fundraiser does not have an account, refuse the registration application as a result.

Acceptance by Funraising as a Fundraiser: Funraising is under no obligation to accept any application to be a Fundraiser on the platform. Please note that Funraising may reject a Fundraiser's application at its absolute discretion. Funraising is under no obligation to disclose the basis upon which any decision to refuse registration of a Fundraiser was made. If the Fundraiser's application for registration is accepted we shall send the Fundraiser Administrator an email to notify them of this action.

3. Remittance of Earnings

Remittance of Earnings: We automatically calculate both revenue earned from the sales of entries to events, as well as any applicable fees or withholdings as agreed with you once an event has concluded. Each Fundraiser shall be paid by BACS in to their nominated bank account. The Fundraiser shall ensure that all its payment details are accurate prior to any payments being made by Funraising. Funraising accepts no liability in respect of payments made incorrectly where the Fundraiser provides incorrect BACS details or other incorrect payment information.

Any additional donations that may be made by a Player to a Fundraiser will not be subject to any Funraising Fees.

Funraising will endeavour to make payments within a 3 business day time period once an event has concluded, but may delay payments where it considers unusual activity to have taken place within a Fundraiser's account or if it requires additional information from the Fundraiser in order to ensure that payments are made correctly.

VAT: For the avoidance of doubt, no VAT is payable on Event Entries.

4. Publicity

The Fundraiser grants Funraising a royalty-free license to use any of the Fundraisers' trademarks (whether registered or unregistered) or Content which the Fundraiser has uploaded to the Website, throughout the world, for the sole purpose of issuing publicity in respect of Funraising's provision of the services to the Fundraiser and to promote the Website and Funraising. Funraising shall immediately withdraw any such publicity upon written notice of the Fundraiser.
