Terms of Service
Our terms of service describe what StreetChange does for you and the individuals and charities you support, and what we kindly request of you as
Here are the key points:
- Online Giving – we run and maintain a website that markets and receives donations on behalf of the individuals and charities featured on it. For this service, and the support we provide to them, charities pay us a transaction fee of up to 10% on the donation. Because we promptly pay donations to charities and other good causes, we regret that we can only refund a donation in exceptional circumstances, as described below.
- User Conduct – We moderate comments that are made anywhere on the StreetChange website, and we will remove offensive, obscene or racist content, on the rare occasion we find it– and we may terminate membership as a result.
That’s it. If you want the full, extended version, here it is:
The local StreetChange entity and the company who provides the service to you is StreetChange Limited (registration no. SC523372), whose registered office is 60/5 Haymarket Terrace, Edinburgh, EH12 5LA, United Kingdom.
StreetChange operates www.streetchange.org.uk (the “Website”) and its associated services. These core terms of govern your use of the Website and its associated services. Please read these Terms of Service carefully. If you do not wish to be bound by these Terms of Service, you should not continue to use or access the Website or its associated services.
These Terms of Service may change or be updated from time to time. It remains your responsibility to access and check these Terms of Service wherever you access the Website. The latest version of these Terms of Service will govern any future usage by you of the Website and its associated services.
About the charities, good causes and organisations featured on the Website
The Website and its associated services allows you to donate to any of the individuals (“Members”) or causes (‘’Funds’’) listed on the Website, which could include charities and other listed organisations. Every member or organisation featured has a contractual agreement with StreetChange and authorising StreetChange to collect donations on their behalf. Members are listed on this Website at StreetChange’s discretion, however we cannot accept responsibility for the activities of the member’s. A charity must have the appropriate authorisation, permit or licence to operate as a charity, as required by the local laws of the territory in which it operates. You should note that StreetChange members pages are not intended to raise money for charities, all funds minus our 10% service fee that we pass to charities will reach the intended member.
Subject to the requirements of applicable local laws, and what we say below in relation to StreetChange Fundraising, once your donation is made, it will only be refunded to you with the prior written consent of the representative charity to whom it has been made, regardless of whether or not the donation had been paid to the charity by StreetChange. You should therefore get in touch with the charity first. Before a donation is refunded, the relevant Cause must agree that StreetChange may, subject to local applicable laws, deduct the amount to be refunded from subsequent payments to be made by StreetChange to the charity. Where no further payments are due to be made to such charity within one (1) week of the refund being made to you, StreetChange reserves the right to invoice the charity for the amount of the refund and the charity must agree to settle that invoice within one (1) month of the date of the invoice.
In relation to StreetChange Fundraising, StreetChange will charge your donation to your payment card account (or other payment method available on the Website) at the time of donating.
Use of your donation
StreetChange charges a small transaction fee on every donation made on the Website or its associated services. The fee is currently up to 10% of the gross donation. Donations are also subject to third party payment processing fees.
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, such as PayPal, you should contact the provider of that payment method for assistance.
StreetChange will never email or phone you and ask you to provide all of your payment details.
Protecting your password
When you register with StreetChange and choose a password to protect your secure account, you are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password. If you become aware of any unauthorised use of your password, we recommend that you change your password immediately contact us on the Contact Us page.
StreetChange is not an accounting, taxation or financial advisor, and you should not rely on information given on the Website or its associated services to determine the accounting, tax or financial consequences of making a donation to a charity. We strongly recommend that you consult your own adviser(s) about any accounting, taxation or financial consequences that may affect you.
