What is DCM and driverclubmanagement.com?

DCM is a British registered company, which provides talent management and motorsport sponsorship services. Driverclubmanagement.com is the official website of DCM, which markets its services and provides a secure donation payment platform.

In order for a driver to be represented by DCM and featured on driverclubmanagement.com, the driver has been validated by DCM to reassure the public, prospective donors and donors (“Supporters”) that when Supporters donate through driverclubmanagement.com, their donations will be spent for the benefit and career progression of our drivers within the motorsport industry. However, DCM cannot accept any liability in respect of information provided by a driver on driverclubmanagement.com or for the activities they undertake.

Donations payment processing journey

When you make a donation using the Donation Form on driverclubmanagement.com, the donation is made to DCM and an automatic confirmation email is sent to the Supporter. DCM collects the donations from Supporters and holds those funds for its drivers.

In normal circumstances, DCM will make payment of the funds remaining after the deductions (described below) to the driver(s) designated by the Supporter. DCM will take into account the Supporter’s wishes and will make every effort to donate the funds to the Supporter’s designated driver. However, DCM will have absolute discretion over the making of such donations so as to ensure appropriate donation handling and legal compliance. DCM may decide not to forward donations to the Supporter’s designated driver for any reason in DCM’s reasonable discretion (for example, where the driver is no longer competing in motorsport, or DCM has seized its contractual relationship with the driver). On such rare occasions, DCM may forward the funds to an alternative driver and will make reasonable efforts to ensure that the driver closely matches the profile of the Supporter’s designated driver. DCM will inform Supporters of the funds that have been sent to an alternative driver.

Donations

You are responsible at all times for making an accurate declaration when you make a donation through driverclubmanagement.com. DCM is not responsible for any false or inaccurate declarations made by a Supporter.

When you make a donation on driverclubmanagement.com, you are asked to confirm that you are donating your own money. The following types of donations are note eligible:

  • Cash collections donated through driverclubmanagement.com
  • Money donated on behalf of someone else or a group of people
  • Money donated by a company or other organisation

Upon the sole discretion of DCM, Supporters may receive a goodwill gift or accreditation from DCM and its drivers. Such goodwill gifts are non-transferable, non-refundable and do not provide or assume Supporters’ right to cash alternatives.

Deductions

Certain amounts will be deducted from all donations made through driverclubmanagement.com, as follows:

25% of the donation will be retained by DCM and invested for the continued support of its drivers.

3% of the donation will be paid to DCM as a transaction processing fee.

1% - 3% of the donation will be paid to the payment method provider (e.g. PayPal). The payment method provider may be subject to change. PayPal typically charges 1.2% + 20p for credit card, debit card and PayPal account transactions, but this amount is subject to change. The processing of donations by the payment method provider is subject to their terms and conditions and is outside the control of DCM.

Currency

Donations are accepted in Pounds Sterling. All fees and charges set out in these General Terms & Conditions are based on donations and payments being made only in Pounds Sterling.

Refunds of donations to Supporters
