How safe is Givt?
It is very important to us that everything is safe and risk free.
Your safety is guaranteed on two levels: privacy and payment traffic.
You have to register to use the Givt service. We only ask for the data that is needed to perform a transaction. Therefore, we do not provide data to third parties, unless it is necessary within the framework of the execution of our agreement, or if legally required.
Being a UK based company, we adhere to the new GDPR regulations regarding privacy and the collection and use of personal information.
Givt works with SmartDebit, who handle our transactions. SmartDebit specialises in the processing and authorisation of direct debits through the BACS system. SmartDebit provides this service to Givt at a low cost. Givt believes SmartDebit is the ideal partner to make cashless donations simple and secure. As a payment service provider they are monitored by the Financial Conduct Authority. The donated amounts are collected by SmartDebit, transferred to a safeguarding account and distributed by Givt.
It is worth emphasising that transactions do not take place during giving with Givt. Transactions take place afterwards via a direct debit. Since these are revocable, giving is completely safe and protected against fraud.
