Copper Hut Technologies Inc. (hereafter referred to as “CHT”), provides its services (hereafter referred to as “Yodel” or the "Application") to make it easy for users to create a fundraising page for their community cause, or to create a challenge to prioritize something meaningful in their lives and raise money through their social network for causes they support and care about. As a user of the Yodel site, you have control of your information and decide what you want to share with everyone. This includes contact and personal information and details of your challenge.
We believe that you should have control over your information including how it is shared with others.
Information You Provide
While using the Application, you may provide us with anonymous information, personal information and additional materials.
You provide us with anonymous information such as your IP address, areas of the Application you have visited, time and date, and whether or not you clicked on links. We use technologies such as cookies to collect this information. A cookie is a piece of data stored on a user’s computer. We use session ID cookies to confirm that users are logged in. Session cookies terminate once the user closes the browser. If you choose to click on a link to any outside website, anonymous information may be provided to that website.
You provide us personal information if you register at the Application.
You may also post information, opinions, text, sounds, photographs, audio, video, images, graphics, and other content or materials of any nature (collectively, “Materials”) to the Application. If you choose to share your challenge on Facebook, you have control of who sees this Material on Facebook through your use of the privacy setting available in your Facebook account and the Promote features of the Application.
Use of the Information We Collect
You are in control of sharing personal information that you provide to the Application, including by using the privacy settings of Facebook. If you choose to post Materials directly to public portions of the Application, obviously those Materials become publicly available and can be viewed by other users and anyone with the URL to your campaign, and may also show up in search engine results.
CHT may use personal information you elect to provide to us in order to provide products and/or services to you and, if you elect, other users and for administration, maintenance and development of the Application.
Your personally identifiable information will not be sold to advertisers or spammers.
If you provide your email address at the Application, we may use your email address to contact you and notify you of any Application news. Generally, you cannot opt-out of receiving certain communications such as service-related announcements and administrative messages, except by terminating your use of Yodel.
CHT may use anonymous information collected to improve the quality of the Application. This information may help us to diagnose problems, maintain security, and provide services users want. CHT may determine user demographics, interests, and behavior and may share such anonymous information with others. For example, we may provide demographic or usage information to an organization so they may see how many users are located in a specific geographic area.
Sharing of Information
We share your personally identifiable information in three cases: (1) with your permission, (2) as required by law, and (3) change of ownership, each as more fully described in the paragraphs below.
From time to time CHT will share information with PayPal to resolve client payment issues as well as to assist with the detection and prevention of fraud.
We may be required to disclose user information pursuant to lawful requests, such as subpoenas or court orders, or in compliance with applicable laws. We do not reveal information until we have a good faith belief that an information request by law enforcement or private litigants meets applicable legal standards. Additionally, we may share information when we believe it is necessary to comply with law, to protect our interests or property, to prevent fraud or other illegal activity perpetrated through the Yodel service or using the Yodel name, or to prevent imminent bodily harm. This may include sharing information with other companies, lawyers, agents or government agencies.
Please remember that anyone who has access to your Yodel username and password may be able to access your personal information; therefore, we encourage you to keep your password secret to prevent any unwanted access.
Deletions / Corrections / Updates
Prior to receiving a donation, you can delete your challenge on the Application. You can also edit your information to ensure that it is correct and up-to-date.
Yodel is concerned about the safety and privacy of all its Users, particularly children. To this end, CHT requires parental consent for use of the Yodel site for anyone 18 years old or less and does not allow use by children under 13 years old. CHT does not knowingly collect or solicit information from anyone under the minimum age requirement.
To be able to submit a donation to a challenge or cause, you must meet or exceed the minimum age requirement to register for a PayPal account.
Links to Other Websites
The Application may contain links to other websites, including but not limited to nonprofits, charities, and other organizations. CHT is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of other websites that may be linked to the Application.
CHT takes reasonable precautions to protect our users’ information. Your account information is located on a secured server behind a firewall. Because email and instant messaging are not recognized as secure communications, we request that you not send private information to us by email or instant messaging services. We cannot control the actions of other users with whom you may choose to share your information. Even after removal, copies of Materials may remain viewable in cached and archived pages or if other users have copied or stored your Materials. If you have any questions about the security of the Application, please contact us at here
Opting out of communications
You can choose to opt out of receiving emails from CHT by clicking on the “unsubscribe” link in any such e-mail. Please note that once we receive your request, it may take an additional period of time for your opt-out to become effective. Your unsubscribe change will be processed promptly, and in no event longer than 10 business days. Alternatively, you may email from our form here or reach us at the following contact information:
