I understand and acknowledge that I am fundraising “In aid of” DSAA. This means that as such I am acting “in aid of” the charity when raising funds, but that I am acting independently of the charity and this status gives me no authority to act in the charity's name.

I understand that I am responsible for my fundraising activity, however if my fundraising employs methods which the charity disapproves of, or which could bring the charity into disrepute, action can be taken to prevent my activity.

I understand that as my fundraising is undertaken independently of the charity and is 'in aid of', the charity will not accept any responsibility or liability for my fundraising events or activity.

I understand that DSAA will endeavor to provide support if requested to enable me to effectively carry out fundraising activity that is legal, safe, honest and respectful.

I agree to pass over to DSAA all funds raised as a result of my “in aid of” in a reasonable time frame (within three months of the event date) and that the charity may take steps to recoup all funds raised in its name.

I understand that I can deduct reasonable expenses to cover the costs of my fundraising activity but that these are kept to a minimum and that I will seek advice from a DSAA fundraiser if I am in doubt about what constitutes reasonable expenses.

If my fundraising takes place over a prolonged period of time, I agree to transfer funds at regular intervals and those intervals will be agreed with DSAA at the outset.

I agree to raise money for DSAA and that my activity is not intended to raise my business profile and/or attract customers by associating myself with the Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance brand, and I understand that if this is the case my activities may be considered to be that of a commercial participator’ - a person who carries on a business and in the course of that business represents that it will make donations to a charity. I agree to notify the charity if this is the case and accept that my activities may be subjected to different terms and conditions.

I understand that the charities logo may be released to me for single use, on a specific occasion, and in connection with my specified activity in support of the charity. If I need to use the logo for any other reason other than in connection with my fundraising activity or on multiple occasions, I will need to seek further written permission.

I agree to give DSAA sight of anything using the charity's name or logo prior to printing/publication.

I understand that DSAA will store my personal contact information and that this storage complies with the Data Protection Act 1998.
