4.3 Enthuse will use commercially reasonable efforts to collect, protect and secure the personal details of Donors in accordance with applicable data protection laws. Where a Donor has chosen to allow us to pass their personal data onto the Charity, we will do so and the Charity agrees to only use that data strictly for the purposes and in the manner consented to by the Donor and not disclose any personal details to any third party except with the consent of the Donor. Enthuse will not be liable in any way whatsoever for any such disclosure of personal details by the Charity in breach of this section 4.3.

6. Transaction fees
6.1 The amount transferred to the Charity will be equal to the sums received by Enthuse on the Charity’s behalf, less the charges for processing the payments as set out in section 6.2 of this Schedule 1 (“Transaction Fee”). The Charity authorises Enthuse to deduct the Transaction Fee together with such other sums as are owed to Enthuse, in accordance section 9 of this Schedule, from the amount of any Donations that Enthuse is paying out to the Charity.
6.2 The Transaction Fee is made up of two parts, calculated as follows:
- the “Platform Fee”, calculated at just 5% of the gross Donation, which includes Gift Aid; and
- the “Payment Provider Fee”, calculated at just 1.9% + 20p of the net Donation, which does not include Gift Aid. The Processing Fee and Payment Provider Fee may vary. If Donations are processed via Stripe, PayPal or Go Cardless the Payment Provider Fee is set by the applicable payment provider.
6.3 Enthuse may provide a Donor with the option of paying an amount directly to Enthuse (a “Tip”) in addition to the Donation. The Platform Fee for a Donation will be waived on the net Donation, which does not include Gift Aid, where the Donor has been given the option of paying a Tip in respect of that Donation.
6.4 Enthuse reserves the right from time to time to change the Transaction Fee as well as to introduce new fees and charges. Enthuse will use commercially reasonable efforts to notify the Charity of any changes to its Transaction Fee or the introduction of new fees by email and will post its current Transaction Fee on its website. Changes to the Transaction Fee will be published on its website in advance of the effective date of the change and will become effective as of the date indicated as the “effective date” in such posting.
7. Bank details
7.1 The bank account information provided by the Charity to Enthuse will be used for executing all future transfers that Enthuse makes to the Charity, unless the Charity informs Enthuse otherwise or a transfer is rejected by the recipient bank. The Charity is responsible for ensuring that Enthuse is kept informed of the correct and up-to-date details. Any changes to the details must be provided via the Charity’s online account by an authorised representative of the Charity and within a sufficient period of time before a transfer is due to be made.
7.2 If the Charity, or any employee, director, agent or representative of the Charity, provides incorrect, out-of-date or fraudulent information, Enthuse will not be responsible if the payment is not made, is delayed or it is made incorrectly to a third party other than the Charity.
7.3 Transfers of Donations to the nominated bank account or payment processing account (e.g. PayPal) will be made by Enthuse through the Bankers Automated Clearing Services (“BACS”).

7.4 By providing bank account information to Enthuse the Charity agrees to Enthuse collecting payments for the Charity via any website, including third party websites that may use Enthuse to collect payments for the Charity.
8.1 If after a Donation has been transferred by Enthuse to the Charity bank account, such Donation is thereafter rejected or reversed for any or no reason, including payments made in error, credit card chargebacks, refund requests, suspected or actual fraud, in whole or in part, the Charity will be liable to refund such rejected Donation amount in full to Enthuse. The Charity authorises Enthuseto deduct any such amount and any directly related out-of-pocket expenses and reasonable administrative costs incurred by Enthuse in this context from the Charity Account. If this is not possible, you are liable for reimbursing Enthuse, and such amount shall be treated as a debt.
