Terms of Service

Welcome to MiniDeed!

Our terms of service describe what MiniDeed does for you and the charities you support, and what we kindly request of you as a user in return.

Here is a summary of the key points:

That’s it! But if you'd like to read the full version here it is:

By accessing minideed.com and its related websites, services, applications or tools (collectively referred to as "MiniDeed") you are agreeing to the following terms, which are designed to make sure that MiniDeed works for everyone. MiniDeed is provided to you by Siperi Limited, 4 Shrewton Road, London, England, SW17 9HX, registered in England and Wales with company number 10291086 (“we”, “us”, “our”). These Terms of Service constitute a legally binding agreement between you and Siperi Limited. If you do not wish to be bound by these Terms of Service, you should not continue to use MiniDeed.

By agreeing to these Terms of Service you also agree to the General Terms and Conditions of MangoPay.

These Terms of Service may change or be updated from time to time. It remains your responsibility to check these Terms of Service whenever you use MiniDeed. The latest version of these Terms of Service will govern any future usage by you of MiniDeed.

About the charities featured on MiniDeed

MiniDeed allows you to donate to, and raise funds for, any of the causes listed on MiniDeed ("Causes"). Causes are charities that are registered with the Charity Commission for England and Wales or are Community Amateur Sports Clubs ("CASCs"). Causes are listed on MiniDeed at our discretion, however we cannot accept responsibility for the activities of the Causes. Causes consist of Member Causes (“Members”) and Non-members Causes (“Non-members”). Member Causes have a contractual agreement with us authorising us to collect donations and claim Gift Aid on their behalf.

Fundraising

When you post content, such as photos and videos, on MiniDeed, you may link this content to a Cause. Other users are able to support your post, and therefore your Cause, by making donations to the Cause through your post. Your post will display how much money has been raised for your linked Cause.

Donations

Your donations are accumulated in your MiniDeed account over the month and are paid out to the relevant Causes at the end of each month. Once your donation is paid out, it will only be refunded to you with the prior written consent of the Cause to whom it has been made, regardless of whether or not the donation had been paid to the Cause by us. You should therefore get in touch with the Cause first. Before a donation is refunded, the relevant Cause must agree that we may deduct the amount to be refunded from subsequent payments to be made by us to the Cause. Where no further payments are due to be made to such Cause within one (1) month of the refund being made to you, we reserve the right to invoice the Cause for the amount of the refund and the Cause must agree to settle that invoice within one (1) month of the date of the invoice. If we are unable to make a payment to a Cause or do not feel it is appropriate to pass on a donation (for example, if a charity has been de-registered by the Charity Commission or has a sanction listed against them) then we will notify you and either credit your account or return the donation to you. If we are unable to credit your account (for example, if you have deactivated your account) and we are unable to contact you then we will select an appropriate alternative charity to pass the donation to.

Transaction information

We will send you an email confirming the details of each month's donation as soon as we receive confirmation that the transaction has been authorised. We will keep records of your transaction for at least seven years. You will also be able to view the history of your donations and the Causes you have supported in your profile.

Use of your donation

We do not warrant that your donations will be used for any particular purpose and shall not be responsible for any dissatisfaction you may have regarding the recipient Cause's use of any donation you may make through MiniDeed or for any misuse or non-use of such donations by the recipient Cause. After donations are made, all further dealings are solely between the donor and such recipient organisation.

Please note that recipient organisations reserve the right to use your donation for their general purposes. They will use your donation for any purpose in accordance with their own rules. We cannot guarantee that funds will be earmarked for a particular appeal. If you want your donation to be used for a specific purpose or for a particular appeal you should contact the organisation and make your donation directly to them.

Gift Aid information

When you register on MiniDeed you will be asked to confirm whether you are a UK taxpayer and are eligible for Gift Aid in accordance with the requirements of the Gift Aid scheme as they apply from time to time. You may change this setting in your MiniDeed profile on our website from time to time. If you are a UK taxpayer and eligible for Gift Aid, when making a donation to a charity for the first time, you will be requested to confirm whether you would like Gift Aid to be claimed on your donation and all subsequent donations with that charity. You may change this authorisation in your MiniDeed profile on our website from time to time. It is your responsibility to ascertain whether you qualify for Gift Aid entitlement. If you have any doubts we strongly recommend you seek advice from your own adviser(s) or HMRC.

We may claim Gift Aid on behalf of Member charities or Community Amateur Sports Clubs ("CASC") under the UK government's Gift Aid scheme. We provide a purely administrative role in collecting donations and assisting charities claim Gift Aid themselves for Non-member charities.

Fees

We do not charge you any fees on donations made with Gift Aid. We may charge you a small fee on donations made without Gift Aid from time to time. Your donations are also subject to third party payment processing fees.

All payments referred to in these Terms of Service are exclusive of Value Added Tax, where applicable.

Unauthorised donations

When you make a donation the transaction is final and not disputable unless unauthorised use of your payment card or other payment method 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. Similarly, if you experience any issues of this nature when using another payment method, you should contact the provider of that payment method for assistance.

We will never email or phone you and ask you to provide all of your payment details.

Protecting your account

When you register on MiniDeed and choose a password to secure your account, you are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password to prevent others gaining access to your personal information. This includes any taxpayer details you may have saved under your profile in order to claim Gift Aid. Claiming Gift Aid using someone else’s taxpayer information is against the law. If you become aware of any unauthorised use of your account, we recommend that you change your password and contact us immediately.

You can read more about how we keep your information secure in our Privacy Policy.

Information

We are not an accounting, taxation or financial advisor, and you should not rely on information on MiniDeed to determine the accounting, tax or financial consequences of making a donation to a Cause. We strongly recommend that you consult your own adviser(s) about any accounting, taxation or financial consequences that may affect you.

Privacy

Our Privacy Policy forms part of these Terms of Service. By agreeing to these Terms of Service you also give your consent to the way we may handle your personal information under that Policy.

We reserve the right to cancel your membership and delete any MiniDeed content without notice in the event of a breach of the above rules.

Posting content on MiniDeed in aid of a Cause in no way implies our or the Cause's endorsement of your fundraising activity. For example, many Causes disapprove of, and do not wish to be involved in, dangerous sports or unusual challenges. It is your responsibility to check with the Cause first that your chosen activity does not contravene the Cause's policies. We reserve the right, at our absolute discretion and without notice, to remove your content at the request of the Cause, in the event that the Cause, in its absolute discretion, deems your fundraising activity inappropriate or unnecessarily dangerous. If your donations have not been paid out to the Cause on content that we remove, your account will be credited with the amount of your donation. If your donation have been already been paid out to the Cause on content that we remove, once the Cause refunds your donation to us, we will then credit your account; if this is not possible (for example, your account has been deactivated) and we are unable to contact you then we will select an appropriate alternative charity to pass the donation to.
