Our Disclosure of Your Personal Data and Other Information:
ChopChop is not in the business of selling your information. We consider this information to be a vital part of our relationship with you. There are, however, certain circumstances in which we may share your Personal Data with certain third parties without further notice to you, as set forth below:

Agents, Consultants and Related Third Parties: ChopChop, like many businesses, sometimes hires other companies to perform certain business-related functions. Examples of such functions include mailing information, maintaining databases and processing payments. When we employ another company to perform a function of this nature, we only provide them with the information that they need to perform their specific function.

The Federal Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (COPPA) governs how information is gathered online and how it is used when communication is received from children under the age of 13. Although ChopChop is a non-commercial, nonprofit organization and is not subject to the COPPA, we take children’s privacy and safety very seriously and, as such, have developed our policies regarding the collection of Personal Data from children to be consistent with the requirements of COPPA.
We do not collect any Personal Data directly from children under the age of 13. Our ChopChop Cooking Club program provides a fun way for kids to learn basic cooking skills and submit photographs of the completed dish for the for a chance to win prizes. The ChopChop Cooking Club registration form should be completed by an adult over the age of 18 on behalf of the participating child. The only information we require when signing up to our program is the child’s first name and age, email address (or validated email address of parent or guardian), username and password. This information is never made public to anyone outside of ChopChop. The only information disclosed or displayed publicly is a child’s username. Names, birthdays, passwords, email addresses, or any other identifying information is never made public.
