“GYalumni.org” and related terms refer to certain non-charitable causes listed as such on the Website.

Terms of Service
These terms of service (and the relevant country specific terms) (collectively, the "Terms”) “govern your use of the Website and its associated services. Please read these Terms carefully. Your use of the Website and/or and its associated services constitutes your assent to these Terms.
We may update these Terms from time to time. It is your responsibility to review these Terms wherever you access the Website. The latest version of these Terms will govern any future usage by you of the Website and its associated services. The date on which these Terms were last updated is stated at the end of this document.
About the Causes featured on the Website:
The Website and its associated services allow you to donate to and raise funds for any Cause listed on the Website. Every Cause featured has an agreement with GYalumni.org authorising GYalumni.org (defined below) to collect donations on its behalf. Causes are listed on this Website at GYalumni.org discretion; however, we are not responsible for the activities of any Cause. 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.
Subject to the requirements of applicable local laws, and what we say below in relation to GYalumni.org Crowdfunding, once your donation is made it will only be refunded to you by contacting direct the Cause to whom it has been directed.
GYalumni.org will process your donation via the payment method used at the time of donating. NOTE: no donations will be refunded for any reason, subject to applicable local laws. Occasionally, the person who created the page to which you have donated does not pass identity verification or other necessary checks, or there is some other reason that we cannot transfer the funds to them. If we are unable to transfer the funds to the Cause to which you donated, we will return your donation via the payment method from which you made the donation. If we are unable to return your donation via the payment method you used, your donation will be sent to another Cause, subject to the deduction of applicable transaction and payment processing fees.
For donors that donate to Gateshead Yeshiva Alumni via Achisomoch (AAC), all donation details submitted will be shared with AAC for data verification purposes only. This includes donors’ contact details, first name, surname, email and any other personal details.
Use of your donation
GYalumni.org does not represent or warrant that your donations will be used for any particular purpose and shall not be responsible for any dissatisfaction you may have regarding a Cause's use of any donation you may make through the Website or its associated services or websites powered by us or for any misuse or non-use of such donations by a Cause. After donations are made, all further dealings are solely between you and the Cause to which you donated.
NOTE: For donations to GYalumni.org Crowdfunding pages, you may receive updates from the page creator to let you know more about their Cause. If you would like to stop receiving these emails, please contact the Cause directly. Please note that recipient organisations (excluding GYalumni.org Crowdfunding page creators) reserve the right to use your donation for their general purposes in accordance with their practices and rules. GYalumni.org shall not be responsible for ensuring that funds are earmarked for a particular appeal. If you want a donation to be used for a specific purpose or for a particular appeal, contact the organisation and make your donation directly to them.
GYalumni.org (or any payments processor or card brand we work with) will verify the identity of a GYalumni.org Crowdfunding page creator and undertake any other necessary checks before any funds raised are transferred to the page owner. GYalumni.org shall have no liability to donors whatsoever for any use or misuse of donations made to the GYalumni.org Crowdfunding page. The GYalumni.org Crowdfunding page may state that page owners will use donations only for specific purposes, but GYalumni.org cannot guarantee that they will use them for such purpose. If you have any doubts as to how the money will be spent you should contact the GYalumni.org Crowdfunding page owner directly to seek reassurance. It is your sole responsibility, as a user of the Website, to ensure that the cause stated to be supported on a relevant GYalumni.org Crowdfunding page is one that you wish to support.
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.
GYalumni.org will never email or phone you and ask you to provide all of your payment details.

When you register with GYalumni.org and choose a password to protect your secure account, you are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password to prevent others gaining access to your personal information.

Claiming tax or tax deductions using someone else’s taxpayer information is against the law.
