About the charities and organisations featured on the Website
The Website allows you to donate to, and raise funds for, any of the Exempt, Excluded or registered UK charities listed with the HMRC (Her Majesty's Revenues & Customs), the Charity Commission for England & Wales or the OSCR (Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator) listed on this Website. All charities listed are provided under a contract from Charities Trust who are authorised to collect donations and reclaim Gift Aid under the UK Government's Gift Aid Scheme. Charities and Good Causes can have similar names: it is your responsibility to check that you are donating to the organisation you intended.
How we allocate money to charities via web search
Revenue is disbursed to individual charities, as outlined above, that have been supported by Users of the Website. The sum each charity receives is entirely proportional to the amount that Users use the Website relative to the Users of other supported charities. Disbursements are made to Charities either via either our payment partner, Charities Trust or directly by Everyclick if the Charity has completed and signed the on-line compliance and consumer partnership agreement.
The activity of Website users who do not select a specific charity will benefit all supported charities on a pro rata basis. A "supported charity" is defined as any charity that has Users who have selected to support them via the Website. "Users" are defined as anyone who selects a charity from the Website to benefit from their use of the site or who uses the Website via a referral from a charity Website.
How we allocate money to charities via Donation, Sponsorship and Vouchers
Charities Trust (Charity Reg No 327489) collect all donations made via the Website and disburse them to your requested charity. When donations are collected they incur a 4.8% administration charge from Charities Trust to cover the collection, credit or debit card fees and administration of the donation. Gift Aid will be collected on all qualifying donations and also disbursed to your requested charity minus the 4% administration charge levied by Charities Trust.
How we allocate money to charities via www.everygreeting.com

When donations are collected they incur a 10% administration charge to cover the collection, credit or debit card fees, technology costs and administration of the donation. Gift Aid will be collected on all qualifying donations and also disbursed to your requested charity.
How we allocate money to charities via shopping and eBay
The money is allocated to each charity supported by the Users who made the purchases or won the auctions. Disbursements are made to Charities either via either our payment partner, Charities Trust or directly by Everyclick if the Charity has completed and signed the on-line compliance and consumer partnership agreement.
Any shopping or eBay revenue earned by Users who elected to fundraise for All Supported Charities on the site will be disbursed to individual charities that have been supported by Users of the Website. In this case, the sum each charity receives is entirely proportional to the amount that Users use the Website relative to the Users of other supported charities.

Sponsorship and Appeals
Once you have made a payment to a fundraiser it is treated as a donation to the charity they are support at the time. Your payment is non refundable even if the fundraiser fails to complete their event.
Collection of promises to pay made via the Everyclick Pledge system are the responsibility of the individual fundraiser.
Please note that Vouchers can only be redeemed in the currency they are purchased in. Therefore £ Vouchers can only be reclaimed against UK charities and $ Vouchers against US charities.
Any Voucher's that remain unclaimed after 12 months will be distributed to charity at Everyclick's discretion.
On Vouchers where Gift Aid is being claimed a 4.8% handling fee is added to the cost of the voucher to cover purchase and donation management costs.
Donation amounts shown on Everyclick
The figures shown on the Website include estimated search revenue in addition to actual, shopping and eBay revenues and donations. They are updated every 3 minutes. They are verified monthly prior to disbursements being authorised. Payments are made to charities on a regular basis. It is possible that, following the monthly verification process, the actual search revenue will be less than that estimated which may, very occasionally, result in charity totals displayed on the site decreasing.
Use of funds
Each charity beneficiary reserves the right to utilise the income raised through Everyclick.com, including that raised through sponsorship and the sending of greetings and eGfits, to best effect for the charity.
In the event that a charity ceases to operate or becomes de-registered before all of the monies raised or donated can be sent to them, their outstanding payment will be distributed to a charity or charities at the discretion of Charities Trust and Everyclick management.
Unauthorised card use
When a donation is made via the Website 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.
