About the charities and organisations featured on the Website
The Website allows you to donate to, and raise funds for, any of the charities and organisations listed on this Website. Every charity or organisation featured has a contractual agreement with Vallodata authorising Valldata to collect donations on its behalf. Charities and organisations are accepted as members at Valldata’s discretion. Charities and not-for-profit organisations must be registered with the Charity Commission or exempt from registration. Charities and not-for-profit organisations can have similar names: it is your responsibility to check that you are donating to the organisation you intended.
Use of your donation
Valldata is not responsible for any dissatisfaction you may have regarding the recipient organisation's use of any donation you may make through the Website or websites powered by Valldata. Please note that the recipient organisation reserves the right to use your donation for its general purposes.
When a donation has been checked on the donation process to be visible on the Tributefund donation list, it will also be visible on the Our Lasting Tribute live feed of donations, which can be viewed here: http://www.ourlastingtribute.com/
Credit card companies charge Valldata a small fee for each donation which is passed on to the charity. Subscription fees do apply to charities and companies. For up-to-date details please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Unauthorised card use
When a donation is made on the Website the transaction is final and not disputable unless unauthorised 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.
Protecting your password.
When you register with tributefunds.com 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.
Gift Aid information
When you donate to a charity on the Website and confirm that you are a UK taxpayer in accordance with the requirements of the Gift Aid Scheme as they apply from time to time, Valldata will pass on your name, address and any other information that you supply to the charity to claim Gift Aid. Valldata is not an accounting, taxation or financial advisor, and you should not rely on information given on the Website to determine the accounting, tax or financial consequences of making a donation to charity. We strongly recommend that you consult your own adviser(s) about any accounting, taxation or financial consequences that may affect you.
