If you are an eligible UK taxpayer, the Soccer Aid Appeal, on behalf of the benefitting charity or the charity itself, may claim Gift Aid from HM Revenue & Customs via the online, SMS or phone donation methods and hence increase the amount you donate by up to 25%, at no extra cost to you.

You will be required to provide information including, but not limited to, your name, home address and postcode for the purposes of claiming Gift Aid.

F/. Data and marketing
If adding Gift Aid through the SMS microsite, you will be asked whether or not you would like to receive further information from ITV about prizes, offers, programmes and ways for you to get involved with ITV. Where you have indicated consent to receive this information from the ITV by ‘opting in’, the data provided will be used in accordance with the privacy notice available at https://www.itv.com/privacy-compsandvotes.
If your donation is over £5,000, ITV and its subcontractors may need to pass on your personal data to the charity in order for them process your donation and claim DFID aid match funding. Your personal data will only be passed on where appropriate and strictly necessary for the purpose of DFID aid match funding.
