This Cookies Policy applies to all users of the Website whether you are a visitor to the Website (a 'Visitor'), whether you have registered an account with the Website as a 'Supporter' (in which case these Website Terms form part of our Supporter Terms) or if you have registered an account as a 'Good Cause' (in which case these Website Terms form part of our Good Cause Terms). In this Cookies Policy we refer to Visitors, Supporters and Good Causes as 'you'.
Here at Easyfundraising we strive to make it as simple as possible for you to raise funds for your favourite good causes. To make this happen we have to use and place cookies to help us keep track of where we should send your valuable donations.
What are cookies?
Cookies are small files of data that are placed on your device when you visit our Website in order to perform a variety of functions in relation to your use of the Website.
When you or any other supporter uses our site to go shopping at one of our retailer partners we earn a small commission from the retailer. We then pass on a Donation to the Good Cause identified by that Supporter. To earn this commission we place a cookie that identifies that the Supporter has come from Easyfundraising.
