In particular, make sure that none of the prohibited items listed below appear on your publicly available pages or get linked to from your account (things like spam, viruses, or hate content).

GETYOURDONATION disclaims any responsibility for any harm resulting from your use of non-GETYOURDONATION websites and webpages.

Donations. Every charity or organization featured has a contractual agreement with GETYOURDONATION. By clicking the "Donate" button when making a donation, you agree to these Terms, including without limitation this section. You understand that this section does not constitute legal or accounting advice, and that you should consult your own tax advisor for information regarding the tax consequences to you of your donation. You understand that the tax rules governing the deductibility of your donation are complex and will differ depending on many factors, including your country of citizenship. You understand that, generally, a U.S. individual may not claim a personal U.S. income tax deduction for any charitable donation to a non-U.S. organization.

You understand that your contribution is to the GETYOURDONATION, that processes donations and disburses funds to charities and organizations based on donor recommendations made through the GETYOURDONATION website. You agree that, like any tax-deductible charitable contribution, your donation is non-refundable and cannot be cancelled or returned once it has been completed.

You agree that the GETYOURDONATION will deduct a small transaction fee from your donation to cover standard processing costs and that this fee is deducted before the GETYOURDONATION disburses your donation to the charity or organization. Your credit card statement will list GETYOURDONATION as the merchant. If you have questions related to the donation process, please contact the GETYOURDONATION at info@getyourdonation.eu. GETYOURDONATION or the GETYOURDONATION is not responsible for any dissatisfaction you may have regarding the recipient organization's use of any donation you may make through the Website or websites powered by us. Please note that the recipient organization reserves the right to use your donation for its general purposes. GETYOURDONATION cannot guarantee that funds will be earmarked for a particular appeal, unless specifically stated by the recipient organization itself. When a donation is made on the Website the transaction is final and not disputable unless unauthorized 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.

Donor's Responsibility of Due Diligence. While it is the desire of GETYOURDONATION to maintain an accurate and up-to-date database of organizations and their projects, we cannot and do not screen each individual cause and project, nor do we make any warranties about the accuracy or authenticity of any causes and projects. This service is offered free of charge for donors and we rely on the integrity of all users to represent themselves honestly and accurately. We require all organizations on this site to abide by policies and guidelines. Additionally, each participating organization's bank account must be verified by its local bank to reduce the likelihood of posting misleading or dishonest information. Also, because organizations and projects on this site will be viewed by numerous experienced and discerning donors, it is likely that any counterfeit proposals would be detected quickly. GETYOURDONATION will investigate all such reports of abuse from its users. Any organization found to have posted false or misleading information will be banned from further use of this site. Nevertheless, donors are strongly encouraged to perform their own due diligence on the organizations and projects they find in the GETYOURDONATION directory, bearing in mind that these organizations and projects are not "approved" by GETYOURDONATION, nor has their authenticity been validated in any way by us. Possible investigative steps you may want to consider include:

  • You could contact the organization directly by phone or e-mail, requesting more detailed information and historical data. You may also wish to ask for references or other proof of their work.
  • You could contact a trusted associate (particularly in the country of origin or someone who has close ties to or knowledge of that particular country and/or cause) to further research your findings.
  • You could contact your professional advisor or tax accountant to help research or answer any questions you might have. Only once you have established the validity of the organization and the project should you contact the organization or project leader to discuss your donation. You agree to conduct your own due diligence and that GETYOURDONATION may not be held liable in any way for any counterfeit organization or project found on this site. Charities and non-for-profit organizations can have similar names: it is your responsibility to check that you are donating to the organization you intended. Foundation Accounts.
  • Fees; Payment. By signing up for a Foundation Account you agree to pay GETYOURDONATION the monthly service fees in exchange for the services. Applicable fees will be invoiced starting from the day your Foundation Account is established and in advance of using such services. GETYOURDONATION reserves the right to change the payment terms and fees upon thirty (30) days prior written notice to you. Foundation Accounts can be canceled by you at anytime on 30 days written notice to GETYOURDONATION.
  • Support. Foundation Accounts include access to priority email support. "Email support" means the ability to make requests for technical support assistance by email at any time (with reasonable efforts by GETYOURDONATION to respond within one business day) concerning the use of the Foundation Accounts. "Priority" means that support for Foundation Accounts customers takes priority over support for users of the standard, free GETYOURDONATION account services. All Foundation Accounts support will be provided in accordance with GETYOURDONATION standard Foundation Accounts practices, procedures and policies.

We will evaluate the application and will notify you of its acceptance or rejection based on the above qualifications. Notwithstanding the above qualifications, we may refuse service to any organization without having to motivate or state any reason.
  • Donations. In order to receive donations from website visitors, you must enter into a separate agreement with the GETYOURDONATION Foundation.
  • Responsibility to Maintain Fresh and Accurate Content. Information about your cause, which may include images, will be viewed by a wide audience of potential donors, most of whom would never have discovered your cause had they not logged onto this site. Because it is the desire of GETYOURDONATION to maintain an accurate, up-to-date database of information, we rely on the integrity of all users to represent themselves honestly and accurately. Should any changes occur to the status of a cause, its leadership team, its vision and mission statement, its contact details, its banking details, its projects, or its administrators or authorized representatives, you agree, within five days of such changes, to log onto GETYOURDONATION and revise the contents where applicable. Additionally, you agree to update your cause profile as it changes or becomes obsolete. You may update or change your content as often as you wish. Content stay active in GETYOURDONATION for 12 months unless otherwise specified by you.
  • Responsibility to Prospective Donors. You and your cause should expect to be contacted by donors directly should they have further interest or additional questions not answered in the original content provided. You agree to accommodate donors who learn of your cause through GETYOURDONATION.
  • GETYOURDONATION Mobile Services. GETYOURDONATION facilitates the sending of mobile text (SMS) messages. You are responsible for paying all access charges incurred while using the mobile service, and we make no guarantee as to the continuous availability of the mobile service. Messages shall be deemed to have been sent when GETYOURDONATION has delivered/sent the messages to the immediate destination that our software is programmed to do, including SMTP servers, Mobile telephone networks, or any other intermediary server or API that is deemed to be the point of dispatch of the message. We do not guarantee the delivery of mobile text messages to mobile phones on behalf of mobile telephone networks. GETYOURDONATION lays no claims to its network coverage. Although GETYOURDONATION focuses on providing extensive coverage, mobile networks may choose from time to time to not be part of GETYOURDONATION or its service providers' networks. This may result in messages not being delivered. GETYOURDONATION has set no fixed upper limit on the number of mobile text messages you may send through the service apart from how many mobile credits are left in your account; however, GETYOURDONATION reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to determine whether or not your conduct is consistent with the letter and spirit of this agreement and may terminate the service if your conduct is found to be inconsistent with the agreement. GETYOURDONATION may, in the future, without prior notification, limit the amount of message storage space available to each user. Messages may be delivered late due to queuing or network traffic. This will still result in the message being seen as "sent". All mobile messaging fees are payable up front. Upfront payment refers to payment that is made within a reasonable time so as to allow GETYOURDONATION to add the SMS credits to your account.
  • GETYOURDONATION E-mail Services. You agree to import, access or otherwise use only permission-based lists (purchased lists may not be used). You cannot mail to distribution lists, newsgroups, or spam email addresses. You are responsible for monitoring, correcting, processing unsubscribe requests within 10 days, and updating the email addresses to which messages are sent through your GETYOURDONATION account. E-mails that you send through the GETYOURDONATION service may generate abuse complaints from recipients. As a matter of privacy, we cannot share with you the e-mail addresses of those who complain about receiving your e-mail. You are responsible for ensuring that your e-mail messages do not generate a number of abuse complaints in excess of industry norms. GETYOURDONATION, in its sole discretion, shall determine whether your level of abuse complaints is within industry norms, and its determination shall be final, binding and conclusive for all purposes under this Agreement. You agree that GETYOURDONATION makes no guarantee that HTML messages will be rendered properly on all recipients' e-mail programs, due to the wide variety of HTML generation tools available. By using GETYOURDONATION's E-mail service, you agree not to import or send to any e-mail address (1) for which you do not have explicit, provable permission to contact in relation to the topic of the email you're sending, (2) you bought, loaned, rented or in any way acquired from a third party, (3) you have not used within the last two years, or (4) you collected from the Internet.
