The charity donation website aliveandgiving.com has been relaunched so that donate buttons are no longer included automatically in charity listings.

When the site was first launched last month, visitors had the option to donate through aliveandgiving.com to more than 200,000 listed charities.

But after some charities expressed concerns that the donations were being taken without their consent, the organisation has removed the donate button from charities that have not agreed to it being included on their page.

Chester Sinclare, the founder of aliveandgiving.com, announced his intention to change the site in a comment left on the Third Sector website.

"We are soon to be releasing an updated version of the site," he wrote. "In this updated version only charities that have signed up will have a donate button on our website.

"This is both due to concerns from individuals and because we promised to listen to those who take an interest in what we do."
