Do We Share the Information that We Receive?

YODLE considers your information to be a vital part of our relationship with you. YODLE will share information including Personal Data with its subsidiaries and affiliates that have also agreed to be bound by this Privacy Statement and Consent. In addition, YODLE, like many businesses, sometimes hires other companies to perform certain business-related functions. Examples include mailing information, maintaining databases and processing payments. When we retain other non-affiliated companies to perform a function of this nature, we seek to provide them with only the information that they need to perform their specific functions, and we require them to protect your Personal Data in accordance with this Privacy Statement and Consent and YODLE's restrictions.

In addition, if you input Personal Data on a co-branded registration page, relating, for example, to a contest co-sponsored by both YODLE and a partner company, then your Personal Data will be available both to YODLE and to such partner company. While YODLE will only use such Personal Data in accordance with this Privacy Statement and Consent, such partner company's use of your Personal Data will be subject to the privacy policy of that company and YODLE cannot be responsible for their use of your information. We encourage you to review the privacy policy of such partner company before providing information on any such co-sponsored page or promotion.

There is also a limited number of circumstances in which we may share your Personal Data and other information in our possession with certain additional third parties without further notice to you, as set forth below:

Legal Requirements: YODLE may disclose your Personal Data, User Data and other information if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary: (a) to comply with a legal obligation, (b) to protect and defend the rights or property of YODLE or its affiliates, (c) to act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of the Site or the public, or (d) to protect against legal liability.

Public and Unsolicited Information

This Privacy Statement and Consent shall not apply to Public Information you provide to YODLE through this Site or through any other means.
