2. Nature of our website

2.1 Our website provides opportunities to make tax-efficient charitable donations online to support our mission to protect East African wildlife and wild lands for the benefit of all. Our website describes the Services in more detail. The website provides information about Big Life and the programs which are featured on this site.

2.2. Please note that our website is available only to individuals that can form legally binding contracts under applicable law. Although the general information on our website is suitable for users of any age, you must be over eighteen (18) years of age to use the Services and the payment methods displayed on our website.

3. Using the Services on our website

3.1 To use our Services, you will need to follow the procedures set out on the Website.

3.2 Details of the procedures for payment and how we will process your donations are displayed on our website.

3.4 You may pay by credit or debit card, by using PayPal, your Charities Aid Foundation (CAF) account, by cheque, or bank/wire transfer.

3.5 We try to ensure that the information on our website about our programs is accurate, but sometimes there may be a delay in updating this information, or funding goals for a program may change. On rare occasions, a program may become fully funded after we have received a donation from you but before we have transmitted the funds to our partners on the ground in Africa and we will not be able to process the donation in accordance with your original choice on using our website. If this happens, we may contact you to ask your preference for how to reallocate your gift. If we are unable to obtain instructions from you about how to process your donation within a reasonable period of time, we reserve the right to distribute your donation to other programs in our absolute discretion.

3.6 We are entitled to refuse to process any donation placed by you. If your donation is accepted, we will confirm acceptance to you by emailing the email address you give us when you register on our website. The donation will then be processed by the date set out in the confirmation email.

We reserve the right to obtain validation of your credit or debit card details or verification of the authenticity and ownership of these payment methods before taking any other steps to process your donation.

4. Gift Aid and Refunds

4.1 If you make a donation in GBP, your donations are made to Big Life UK (registered charity # 1158772) in their entirety for us to distribute to your chosen programs (subject to our rights set out in clause 3.6 above to distribute donations to other programs in our absolute discretion if we cannot obtain instructions from you).

4.2 We do not provide accounting, tax or financial advice, and you should not rely on any information given on our website to determine the accounting, tax or financial consequences of making a donation using our Services.

4.3 A UK-taxed donor is eligible to request to claim Gift Aid on a GBP donation made through biglife.org. In order for a donation to be classified as Gift Aid, the UK-taxed donor is required to have (i) paid the same amount or more in UK Income Tax or UK Capital Gains Tax in that tax year, as the amount of the Gift Aid claimed, and (ii) made a Gift Aid declaration that gives Big Life UK permission to claim such Gift Aid. You will be asked to make this declaration and provide personal details in order that we can make such Gift Aid claims.

4.4 We reserve the right to recover from you any funds we are required to repay to Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs (‘HMRC’) for any reason in connection with Gift Aid claimed on your donations, including any infringement of applicable rules relating to Gift Aid. More information about Gift Aid is available from HMRC.
