What is the legal status of having a PayPal Donate button on your website?

Can websites just put up a site and have a PayPal Donate button on them and that's it? Do they have to register as a charity? Do they have to state what they are using the donation for? Can all money be used to feed someone's cat or must it be used to improve the website? Can donors require a refund of their money legally for any reason? I guess this all relates to the legal status of gifts? I am mostly interested in the legal status of donations other than tax implications but that could be useful to.
The laws of any country would be interesting. Thanks for your thoughts.
