1.1 Formal notices
Everyclick Ltd ("we", "us" or "our") is a registered company in England & Wales (company number 5181419), with registered offices at Basepoint Business Centre, Crab Apple Way, Vale Business Park, Evesham, Worcestershire, WR11 1GP, United Kingdom.
By using our website, product or services, you are accepting our terms and conditions.
These terms and conditions may change or be updated from time to time. It remains your responsibility to access and check these terms and conditions when you use Everyclick. The latest version of these terms and conditions will govern any future usage by you of Everyclick.
2.0 About donations
2.1 Everyclick Search
You may use the Everyclick search engine ('Everyclick Search') to raise donations as you search the web. Everyclick Search generates money from sponsored results and adverts that are included with the results we display.
From the total advertising revenues we receive, 50% is given to charity. From this, your charity is allocated an amount based on the number of searches you make using Everyclick.
In addition, Everyclick Search includes integration with Give as you Live which allows further funds to be raised via shopping online. As mentioned in the introduction for these terms, you may also with to review the Give as you Live terms and conditions.
You may choose a specific charity to support. If you do not choose a charity, or if the charity you were supporting leaves us, then any donations raised will be distributed to a charity of our choosing.
In order for donations to be allocated to your account, you must be signed into your Everyclick account. If you generate Everyclick Search donations whilst not signed in, we are unable to move these donations into your account.
Only genuine searches are eligible for donations. Any fraudulent or automated searches may result in your access to Everyclick being blocked and donations being withheld and reversed. Automated searches include any software (e.g. robots or spiders) that sends queries to Everyclick, meta-search tools, or offline searches.
2.2 Everyclick Donate
Everyclick Donate involves you making a donation out of your own funds. You can also request that Gift Aid be added to your donation. You can either make a donation direct to a charity, or via a fundraising page that has been created in aid of a charity.
Although you do not need an Everyclick account in order to make a donation, if you want a donation to be allocated to your account, you must be logged in.
When making the donation, it is your responsibility to provide the correct card details, the correct donation value, and to only make the intended number of donations.
We can take no responsibility if a donation fails due to incorrect information being provided.
If you believe your payment card has been used to make an unauthorised donation, please contact us at your earliest convenience. You should also contact your bank or card provider in accordance with their reporting procedures.
If you mistakenly enter an incorrect donation amount or repeat a donation, it is your responsibility to inform us in a timely manner (contact us here). Once contacted, we may make effort to achieve a refund however we cannot guarantee this and cannot be held liable for any bank fees you may be charged as a result of the donation(s).
If you choose to add Gift Aid to your donation, it is your responsibility to answer the Gift Aid eligibility questions correctly and to provide the correct contact details. Gift Aid can only be paid to the charity if they are approved by HMRC to receive Gift Aid. The approval of Gift Aid is at the sole discretion of HMRC and we can take no responsibility for the decisions they make.
When making a donation, you can optionally provide a comment. This will be displayed publically and cannot contain language that may be deemed offensive. We reserve the right to edit or remove comments.
All fundraising pages are listed in good faith. However we cannot guarantee that any actions or events described on these pages (for example that an individual will complete a marathon) will be carried out, or that funds will be used in any prescribed matter. If you believe that a fundraising page is displaying misleading information, please contact us.
2.3 Fundraising pages
You have the ability to create a fundraising page via your Everyclick account. This allows people to make a donation via your page to the charity you specify. By creating the page, you agree for the page and its content and images to be made publically available.
The fundraising page tool allows you to upload text and images. You must use this tool in a responsible and legal manner. For example, you must not upload any content that may be deemed offensive, or any content protected by copyright without permission. Further, you must not use fundraising pages to mispresent yourself or to mislead others.
You must not request users to add Gift Aid when they may be ineligible, for example when the donation is part of a raffle or when a product/service is given in exchange for the donation.
Any views expressed on fundraising pages are, unless specifically stated, not those of Everyclick.
3.0 About charities and payments
3.1 Charities listed on Everyclick
We list charitable organisations who are fully registered with either the Charity Commission for England & Wales, the Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator, or the Charity Commission for Northern Island; or who are officially recognised by HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) as a 'good cause'. We are also able to list Community & Amateur Sports Clubs (CASCs) and Community Interest Companies (CICs).
You may choose to support any charity we list. Some charities may have similar names, descriptions or logos - it is your responsibility to select the charity you intend to select.
If at any time you wish to change your selected charity, you may do so through your account. Changing your charity does not affect any previous generated donations. We can only change the benefitting charity of a donation in exceptional circumstances.
In cases where you do not choose a charity to support, or if donations can no longer be made to your originally selected charity (see section 3.5 De-registered Charities and failed payments), then we will choose the benefitting charity at our own discretion. Typically, this will be a charity chosen as our 'charity of the month'.
3.2 Use of charity data
Charity data is often made publicly available. For example, the Charity Commission for England & Wales maintains a public database of registered charities and contact details. We uses this freely available data to create our list of supportable charities and store the information on our databases.
Subject to the terms of the data provider (e.g. the Charity Commission for England & Wales), we may also contact the charity using those contact details to make them aware of any funds that have been raised for them through our services, as well as any benefits, products and services that we make available to the charity sector in order to help them raise additional funds.
We only contact people on that database or those who have expressly given us permission to do so.
3.3 Payment methods and timings
Payments are made to charities by BACS via our payment partner, subject to our payment schedule and to any minimum payment thresholds. Our payment partner is currently Technology Trust, a charity registered in England & Wales (charity number 1133179).
Historically, fees have applied to Everyclick Search and Give as you Live payments made to cover the transactional and administration costs of making the payment. Currently, no fees are charged on these donations however we reserve the right to reintroduce such costs in future if we see fit to do so.
Fees do apply to Everyclick Donate - currently a 4.8% fee applies to the donation and 3.0% applies to Gift Aid where applicable. This is to cover the fees involved in taking the payment and then making the payment to the charity.
Our company does offer additional products and in some cases fees will apply, however these will only apply to the relevant portion of the payment.
In exceptional circumstances, payments may be made via cheque by us direct to the charity.
3.5 De-registered charities and failed payments
Payments can only be made if we or our payment partner have the required bank details of the charity. In cases where no bank details have previously been provided or if the a payment has failed due to incorrect details, we will endeavour to contact the charity however we cannot be held responsible if the charity is uncontactable, declines to respond, or responds but declines to provide the required bank details.
When this happens, we will continue to hold the funds for as long as we see fit in case bank details are subsequently provided, however we reserve the right to make the donation to a different charity if we decide the bank details are not going to be forthcoming.
In some cases, a charity may cease to be listed on our services - this may be because they've ceased to exist as a register charity, or it may be at their request. Any outstanding donations will be paid to a charity of our choice.
3.6 Use of funds by charities
Each charity reserves the right to utilise the funds raised for any purpose as they see fit. The charity's decision regarding use of funds is final.
