1.1 HasanaH is a company limited by guarantee registered in England and Wales under registration number 11269974 and has its registered office at 4 Old Park Ln, Mayfair, London W1K 1QW, UK and is also a registered charity with registration number 1184628 (“HasanaH” “Us” or “We”). HasanaH operates an online donation platform (the “Website”) through which HasanaH collects and processes donations received (the “Donations”) from individual donors (the “Donors”). HasanaH also claims gift aid (“Gift Aid”) from the UK’s Revenue & Customs (“HMRC”) on relevant Donations. HasanaH distributes Donations and Gift Aid to different non-profit organisations (“Nonprofits” “You” or “Your”). Nonprofits can register with HasanaH to create public facing webpages on the Website (“Project Pages”) that describe charitable projects for which the Nonprofit wants to raise funds (“Projects”). When making a Donation to HasanaH, Donors can advise that they want their Donation to support a particular Project and/or Nonprofit but, as described further in these Terms, HasanaH has sole discretion regarding the onward distribution of Donations and Gift Aid.
1.2 By registering and continuing to use or access the Website, You are agreeing to be bound by these Terms with immediate effect.
2.1 Once You have successfully completed the registration process (as detailed in Schedule 1 and as may be updated by HasanaH from time to time), You will be deemed a “Registered User”, and Your registration shall continue, subject to compliance with these Terms.
2.2 Once the registration process is complete, the Registered User will be deemed as authorised by the Nonprofit unless there is evidence indicating fraud, as reasonably determined by HasanaH.
2.3 Donations are made to HasanaH in their entirety and not to Nonprofits. When making a Donation, Donors may advise that they want their Donation to be allocated to Projects listed on the Website. HasanaH acknowledges such requests of Donors and while We will endeavour to ensure that Donations reach the Project chosen by the Donor, HasanaH’s Trustees retain sole discretion regarding the onward distribution of Donations, together with relevant Gift Aid, to Nonprofits.
2.4 By completing the registration process, You agree and acknowledge that:
(a) HasanaH retains full control over the Donations (including, where applicable, Gift Aid) and the Donations will be allocated to HasanaH’s general funds if (without limitation):

(iii) You do not have an active Registered User account (for any reason);
(iv) You fail to provide Us with any information requested in accordance with these Terms;
(v) A Project fails to attract support of at least USD 250 (or the GBP equivalent) within six months of it being posted to the Website ; or

(b) HasanaH reserves the right to refuse to accept any Donation;
© HasanaH may initiate fundraising activities and appeals itself and may choose to make grants to You with funds it has itself raised upon such terms as HasanaH may determine;
(d) some Donors may use filter options on the Website (e.g. by a specific theme, region, size of Projects, etc) which may result in some of a Nonprofit’s Projects not being seen on the Website by such Donors;
(e) HasanaH cannot ensure receipt of any minimum amounts of Donations and some or all of Your Projects may not receive any Donations; and
(f) nothing in these Terms shall constitute or be deemed to constitute a joint venture, partnership or agency relationship between HasanaH and You and You are not authorised to enter into any commitments for or on behalf of HasanaH.
2.5 HasanaH reserves the right to decline any registration, and refuse or suspend You or any of Your Projects from being listed on the Website for any reason without further explanation. At the time of registration and at a minimum every two years thereafter, HasanaH will undertake such checks as are necessary to verify or re-verify Your identity, objectives and activities (the “Due Diligence Process”, as set out at Schedule 2 of these Terms, and as may be updated by HasanaH from time to time). In addition to the Due Diligence Process, You may be asked to send additional information and documentation to HasanaH from time to time to confirm Your activities, legal status and financial details.
2.6 Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in these Terms, HasanaH reserves the right to update and make any changes it deems necessary to the Website, in its sole discretion.
2.7 If HasanaH decides to transfer Donations and any applicable Gift Aid to You (the “Funds”), You acknowledge that HasanaH will not be able to transfer the Funds until:
