2. Donations

2.1 Introduction

Givero provides you with a free way to raise donations for Good Causes. You may choose several Good Causes to support, or no specific Good Cause if you want us to distribute the funds evenly.

2.2 Givero Search

When you use the Givero search engine (‘Givero Search’), we display which Good Cause benefits from your next search. If you have selected one or more Good Causes, you will see that the name displayed corresponds to one of your selected causes. If you have not selected any, we switch evenly among them all and encourage you to make a selection.

Givero Search earns money from sponsored results and advertisements that are displayed on search result pages. We send information about your currently selected Good Cause to our search partner when you perform a search, and when we are paid, we get a report detailing how many searches were performed and the amount earned by supporters of each Good Cause.

We earn money from advertisements displayed based on genuine, unique queries. Our search partner has fraud protection systems in place that filter out any suspicious and unnatural search queries. The counter you see on the Site when performing searches is the number of search queries you have completed, but the actual number counted by our search partner may be slightly different.

Any fraudulent, automated or otherwise programmatic queries or excessive amounts of unnatural ad-clicks may result in your access to the Sites being blocked and earnings from your queries being voided.

Clicking on more ads than usual will not help generate more revenue for Good Causes, as our search partners will detect them as potentially fraudulent and discard them, reducing our payout accordingly. When our suspected fraud rate goes up, our traffic quality score goes down, and our payouts are dependent upon the traffic quality score.

2.3 How much is donated?

We are a Registered Social Enterprise, and required by law to re-invest or donate money to soceity. This way the money we earn are used to run and develop the company and donated to good causes. We publish a financial reports detailing earnings and donations, and our external auditor verifies that we comply with the legislation.

Applicable taxes may differ based on the nature of the Good Cause. For example, donations to certain Good Causes engaged in research projects are tax exempt, according to Danish law.

2.4 Distribution of funds

Users support their selected Good Causes when performing searches on Givero Search.

Each month we receive a report from our search partner detailing the number of valid searches and earnings accumulated by each Good Cause. We donate half of those funds to the Good Causes.

Each valid search query performed by a user counts towards the current Good Cause. If the user has selected one or more Good Causes, the search queries from that user are distributed evenly among those Good Causes.

If the user has not selected any specific Good Causes, the search queries will be distributed evenly among all Good Causes.

If a user changes his selected Good Causes, it does not affect any previously generated and assigned queries.

3. Good Causes

3.1 Supported causes

We list Good Causes that are registered with official authorities in European Economic Area countries and USA as either charities or otherwise officially recognized as a ‘good cause’.

Inclusion on our list of Good Causes is subject to our approval, at our sole discretion. We reserve the right to refuse any person or organization at any time with or without cause.

In 2020, the Good Causes are selected by us, but our intention is to let our users recommend and vote for Good Causes to include in the future.

3.2 Terms

We do not require any consideration from the Good Causes listed on our Sites and we will not use logos without prior written permission. We are happy to participate in more formal partnerships for the sole purpose of promoting the Good Cause on the Sites, in print and any other media. Except as specifically set forth herein, no right, title or interest in any of the Client Marks is intended to be given to us. The Good Cause represents and warrants that it has the authority to grant the licenses as detailed in this paragraph. It understands that it will not receive any compensation as a result of such use.

We grant to each Good Cause a royalty free, non-exclusive, non-transferable license during its participation in the Service to use the Service names and logos (“Services Marks”) on its site, in print and other media.

A Good Cause may terminate its participation in the Service for convenience, with or without cause at any time by giving written notice to us. We will cease use of the Client Marks within 30 days of receiving this notice and the Good Cause will cease use of our Services Marks within the 30 day period beginning from when notice was served.

Upon termination, we will send the Good Cause any outstanding donations earned as per our usual calculations and distribution cycle.

3.3 Payments

We are paid by our search partners approximately 60 days after the end of the month This is a necessity to combat fraud, which is widespread in the search industry. It takes time to spot fraud patterns and weed out the invalid ad clicks, and make sure no advertiser is charged for ad clicks they shouldn’t be. We pay the Good Causes no later than 30 days after receiving payment from our search partners.

Payments are made to the Good Causes via wire transfer, subject to our payment schedule.

Payments will be made Yearly unless otherwise agreed and so long as the donation amount exceeds €1000.00. If donations do not exceed €1000.00, payments will not be made until the accumulated donation amount meets or exceeds €1000.00.

Any bank or other payment fees incurred by us as a result of processing payments to Good Causes will be deducted from the following donation payment.

Good Causes agree to pay all applicable taxes or charges imposed by any government entity in connection with their participation in our services. If a Good Cause disputes any payment, it must notify us in writing within thirty (30) days of any such payment; failure to do so shall result in the waiver of any claim relating to any such disputed payment. Payments shall be calculated solely based on records maintained by us. No other measurements or statistics of any kind shall be accepted by us or have any effect whatsoever under these Terms of Service.

Payments can only be made if we or our payment partner have the required bank details of the Good Cause. In cases where bank details are unavailable or incorrect, we will contact the Good Cause to get their current details. However, we cannot be held responsible if the Good Cause is uncontactable, declines to respond, or responds but declines to provide the required bank details. If this happens, we will continue to hold the funds for as long as we see fit in case bank details are subsequently provided. However, we reserve the right to distribute the donation to one or more different Good Causes if we conclude that the bank details are not going to be forthcoming.

3.4 Use of funds

Each Good Cause reserves the right to utilize the funds raised for any purpose as they see fit. The Good Cause’s decision regarding their use of funds is final.

4. Transparency

We operate with full transparency, so you can be sure that we pay Good Causes the share we claim we do.

4.1 Your contributions

The Good Cause that is supported by your next search is always displayed on search pages, so you know which Good Cause you are supporting every time you search.

The number of searches you have performed is always displayed on the search page, to give you an idea of how much you have helped the Good Causes. We store the counter in a cookie on your device, so it may be reset if you clear your browser data. However, the Good Cause has still benefitted from your searches as we credit the Good Cause server-side instantly for each search query performed.

4.2 Your contributions

On the Good Cause information pages, you will find a description of the Good Cause, how much was donated in the previous month, how much has been donated in total, and the number of searches performed by their supporters this month.

6 Platform-to-business trading (P2B) Terms

This section applies to business, in addition see section for non-profit organisations.

6.1 Webmaster guidelines

Following Bing Webmaster guidelines will help your site be indexed by Bing and will help you optimize your site to increase its opportunity to rank for relevant queries in the search results. Please pay special attention to the guidance in the Abuse and Examples of Things to Avoid section to ensure your site plays by the rules and will not be found to be a spam site, which could lead to the demotion or even the delisting of your website from search results.

Under our syndication contract with CodeFuel, we ourselves do not decide whether one business is ranked differently than another business in our web link results – these decisions are made by Bing, which does not share its reasoning or algorithms with us. We are contractually prohibited from changing any of the web link rankings. We also are constrained in connection with content that we receive from third-party; we have no insight or influence into their algorithms.

We display different web links results due to a variety of additional factors, such as the user’s browser local (language) setting, his/her chosen or intended geographic region (e.g., Denmark vs. Norway), and his/her safe search selection (strict, moderate, or off).

Although our ability to adjust search rankings is constrained, our value proposition revolves around being an Social business including also being a data ethical service with respect for user privacy
