6.1 Each party shall comply with the requirements of the Code of Fundraising Practice to the extent applicable to the Contract.

6.2 Each party shall (and shall use reasonable endeavours to procure that any third parties shall):

6.2.1 protect vulnerable people and other members of the public from:

6.6 Each party shall give reasonable assistance and cooperation to the other in connection with any complaint or enquiry made by any third party (including any governmental or regulatory body) in connection with the Services or the Event.

7. Charges

7.1 Unless the Proposal Letter specifies otherwise, the Charges for the supply of the Services shall be calculated based upon the standard formula set out in this clause 7, namely:

7.1.1 the number of Participants who participate or are expected to participate in the Event (Participation Fees); and

7.1.2 the donations paid by the School Personnel or any supporters of the School to the Supplier and/or the School directly or indirectly as a result of or in connection with the Services (Donations).

7.2 Subject to clause 3 below, the Supplier shall charge a Participation Fee per Participant in the Event as set out in the Specification.

7.3 If the total sum of Donations is less than or equal to the total sum of Participation Fees then the Charges will be equal to the total sum of Donations and no Participation Fees shall be payable.

7.4 But if the total sum of Donations is greater than the total sum of Participation Fees then the Charges will comprise:

7.4.1 the total sum of Participation Fees; plus

7.4.2 a fee equal to the total sum of Donations less the total sum of Participation Fees where that sum is then multiplied by a percentage set out in the Specification (Services Fee).

7.5 The School shall be entitled to retain the balance of the Donations less the Charges in the form of a voucher to be spent on programmes and/or products offered by the Supplier and/or its partners designed to increase physical activity at the School (School Voucher). The School Voucher is not redeemable for cash.

7.6 By way of example only the standard formula provides that:

7.6.1 if the total of the fees per pupil came to £200 and the total donations came to £150 then the Sports for Schools would receive just the £150 in total and the school would not receive a voucher; or

7.6.2 if the total fees per pupil came to £200 and the total donations came to £2,000 then Sports for Schools would receive £200 + (£2,000 – £200) x 40% = £200 + £720 which comes to £920 in total. The school would receive a voucher with a value of £2,000 – £920 = £1,080.

8. Payment

8.1 The School and the Supplier shall notify each other of the Donations it has respectively received in connection with any fundraising-related Event and the Supplier shall determine the Charges payable in accordance with clause 7 above or as otherwise specified in the Proposal Letter.

8.2 The School will bank all moneys they receive into their own bank account, while the Supplier will bank moneys received through the online sponsorship platform in a separate bank account for the purpose pending the determination of the Charges.

8.3 The Supplier shall invoice the School for the Charges on completion of the Services.

8.4 The School shall pay each invoice submitted by the Supplier within 14 days of the invoice date in full and clear funds to a bank account nominated in writing by the Supplier. The School shall be entitled to redeem the School Voucher only once it has paid the Charges in full.

8.5 Time for payment shall be of the essence of the Contract.

8.6 All amounts payable by the School under the Contract are stated exclusive of any value added tax chargeable from time to time (VAT). Where any taxable supply for VAT purposes is made under the Contract by the Supplier to the School, the School shall (on receipt of a valid VAT invoice) pay to the Supplier such additional amounts in respect of VAT as are chargeable on the supply of the Services (or any part of them) at the same time as payment is due for the supply of the Services.

8.7 If the School fails to make any payment due to the Supplier under the Contract by the due date then (without limiting the Supplier’s remedies under clause 13 below, the School shall pay interest on the overdue sum from the due date until payment of the overdue sum whether before or after judgment. Interest under this clause6 shall accrue each day at 5% per annum above the Bank of England’s base rate from time to time or at 5% per annum for any period where that base rate is below zero.

8.8 All amounts due under the Contract shall be paid in full without any set-off, counterclaim, deduction or withholding (other than any deduction or withholding for tax as required by law).

9. Intellectual property rights

9.1 All intellectual property rights and know-how of any kind in or arising out of or in connection with the Services (other than any intellectual property rights and know-how in any materials provided by the School) shall be owned by the Supplier.

10.2.2 process the sharedpersonal data only for the purposes of the Contract;

10.2.3 not disclose or allow access to the sharedpersonal data to any third party other than any agreed recipients;

10.2.5 ensure that it has in place appropriate technical and organisational measures, reviewed and approved by the other party, to protect against unauthorised or unlawful processing of personal data and against accidental loss or destruction of, or damage to, personal data;

10.3 Each party shall assist the other in complying with all applicable requirements of the DataProtection Legislation.

11.2 The inspecting party shall use its reasonable endeavours to ensure that the conduct of any inspection does not unreasonably disrupt the other party or delay or interfere with the provision of any services by the other party.

12. Limitation of liability.

12.1 The Supplier has obtained insurance cover in respect of its own legal liability for individual claims not exceeding £5,000,000 per claim. The limits and exclusions in this clause 12 reflect the insurance cover the Supplier has been able to arrange and the School is responsible for making its own arrangements for the insurance of any excess loss.
