Wishy’s Terms and Conditions for Charities
Please read these Terms and Conditions carefully. By applying to be (and continuing to be) a member of the Wishy platform, each charity and similar organisation (each a ‘Charity’ for the purposes of these Terms and Conditions) is agreeing to these Terms and Conditions.
If a Charity does not wish to be bound by these Terms and Conditions, the Charity should not continue to use or access any of the Wishy Services.
These Terms and Conditions supersede and replace all previous versions of the Terms and Conditions. We recommend that you keep a copy of these Terms for future reference.
Wishy.org.uk is a site operated by Digital For Good Ltd (‘We’). We operate various online tools and services including the website wishy.org.uk which allows users to create fundraising pages, donate to those pages and allows Charities to access data about those pages (together, the Wishy Services).
