Registering on Work for Good

In order to set up an account, we need to collect information about you, including your name, business and email address. As part of this process, you’ll need to register a username and password in order to access your account.

In order to create a fundraising page, you’ll also need to tell us which charities or not-for-profit organisations you want to support, and how much you are seeking to raise.

If you are registering on behalf of a business, you must ensure that the manager of the business agrees to you registering on Work for Good.

When registering a piece of work on the Website, you may provide us with information about others (e.g. your customer’s name and email address). You must ensure that they have agreed to you providing us with this information. We recommend that you keep a copy of them having agreed to this, and that you give them a copy of this Privacy Policy.

Payment Details

When your business makes a donation through the Website, Work for Good will take your (or your company’s) payment and credit card details. To enable us to process donations, we will connect you with an online payments service called Stripe, which will take all of the payment details. A copy of Stripe’s Privacy Policy can be found here https://stripe.com/gb/privacy.

We will also take the bank details of participating charities to enable us to arrange onward payment of the donations.

Will you pass my information on to other organisations or individuals?

We will not sell your personal information, and we will not pass your personal information to any third parties except in the circumstances set out in this policy.

We will share the name of your company as charities need to know this to comply with their own fundraising rules and procedures. We will not however provide any personal information to a participating charity unless you give us your consent to do so. Please note that if you give permission, charities may want to contact you directly.

On occasion, we may need to use other companies to process your data on our behalf for the purposes for which you have provided it to us. If we do this, we will not give those individuals or organisations any rights to use your personal information (or to contact you) except in accordance with our instructions.

The only times we will pass your details to anyone else would be:

  • To enable payment providers to complete transactions
  • To organisations within the payment card industry in order to prevent online fraud
  • Where we are required to do so by any law or court order. We will not pass your details to any third parties for marketing purposes.
