These sponsorship terms and conditions are issued by Making Herstory of Kemp House, 152-160 City Road, London EC1V 2NX (United Kingdom), registered Company Limited by Guarantee number 8166243.

Sponsorship Donation

By agreeing to sponsor one or more women with Making Herstory (hereafter, “MH”), I agree to pay the sponsorship amount indicated on the sign-up form for each of the women I have agreed to sponsor, and to continue to pay such amounts at the intervals indicated on the sign-up form until such time as I terminate this agreement.

I understand that at the completion of the sponsorship year, any ongoing payments will be terminated with a notification of this due process being given by MH 30 days beforehand.

If I have chosen to make my sponsorship donation by debit or credit card, I give permission to MH to charge my card directly. If I have chosen to make my sponsorship donation by any other method, I agree to pay by such method within 14 days of entering into this sponsorship agreement.

If I have chosen to pay my sponsorship donations by debit or credit card and my sponsorship donations are uncollectable for whatever reason, I agree that MH may charge all uncollected amounts in one charge when collection is resumed.

I understand that the sponsorship amount and duration may change from time to time to reflect increased costs. MH will make reasonable efforts to inform me of such changes with not less than 30 days’ notice in writing, and I understand that if I do not respond to these notifications, I give permission to MH to automatically charge me the changed sponsorship amount and to continue charging me for the changed sponsorship duration. I understand that MH may hold, waive or refund sponsorship donations at its discretion.

Cancellation Policy

It is my intent to sponsor (each of) my sister(s) for the duration of her year of rehabilitation and training, but I understand that I have the right to cancel my sponsorship at any time by giving MH not less than 30 days’ notice of my intention to do so.

I understand my sponsorship and regular donation will continue unless and until not less than 30 days’ notice of cancellation is given. If requested, MH will erase the debit or credit card information held. Should the same card/s be in use for other regular MH donations or sponsorships, I understand the debit or credit card information will remain on file to enable those other charges to be processed.

I understand that my sponsorship may be terminated by MH if my sponsorship donations are uncollected after three consecutive months. In the case of non-monthly payment options, this cancellation will occur after one payment (equating to three months or more of support) is uncollected. MH will make all reasonable efforts to contact me by all means available when my donations are uncollected.

Changes to My Account

If I have chosen to pay my sponsorship amount by debit or credit card, I agree to notify MH immediately if my billing address or card details change, so as to prevent missed donations.

Data Protection

I understand that MH cares how my personal information is used and/or shared with others and that ensuring the security of my personal data is of the utmost importance to MH. Accordingly, I further understand that MH implements reasonable physical, administrative and technical safeguards to help protect my personal information from unauthorized access, use and disclosure. However, I am aware that there are inherent risks in transmitting personal data and any information disclosed online can potentially be collected and used by unauthorised persons. I understand these risks and consent to providing MH with my personal information.

I consent to MH using my information to send me details about sponsorship or such other matters as MH reasonably believe will be of interest to me. I understand that MH will not share my details with any third parties. I also understand that I can opt-out of receiving emails from MH in the future by following the unsubscribe link in any email that is sent to me, or by sending an email to the following applicable email address:

Gift Aid

If I confirm prior to entering into these sponsorship conditions I have paid or will pay an amount of Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax for each tax year (6 April to 5 April) that is at least equal to the amount of tax that all the charities or Community Amateur Sports Clubs (CASCs) that I donate to will reclaim on my gifts for that tax year. I understand that other taxes such as VAT and Council Tax do not qualify. I understand the charity will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give on or after 6 April 2010. I understand it is my responsibility to ascertain whether I qualify for Gift Aid entitlement. I agree to notify MH of any changes in my circumstances that affect my Gift Aid status in a timely manner.

Governing Law

I acknowledge and agree that if any part of these terms and conditions is held to be unenforceable, the unenforceable part shall be given effect to the greatest extent possible and the remainder will remain in full force and effect.

I agree to defend, indemnify, and hold MH, its officers, directors, employees and agents, harmless from and against any claims, actions or demands, including without limitation reasonable legal and accounting fees, resulting from my use of the Site or the Content or your breach of these terms and conditions.

I understand and agree that all contractual and non-contractual obligations and other matters or disputes arising from or connected with these terms and conditions will be governed by the laws of England and Wales. The courts of England and Wales will have exclusive jurisdiction to settle any dispute which might arise out of or in connection with these terms.
