COPDATE TERMS OF USE

PLEASE READ THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF USE CAREFULLY BEFORE USING THIS WEBSITE OR APPLICATION.  

By using this Website (the “Site”) or mobile application (the “App”) (collectively the “Services”), you signify your consent to these terms of use.  If you do not agree to these terms of use, please do not use the Services.  We reserve the right, at our discretion, to change, modify, add, or remove portions of these terms at any time.  Please check these terms periodically for changes.  Your continued use of the Services following the posting of changes to these terms (including our Privacy Statement), subject to our procedures for material changes to our Privacy Statement will mean you accept those changes.

In this Policy, user of the CopDate mobile applications and/or a visitor to the CopDate website may be referred to as “you” and/or “user”. When a user has created an account and is logged in, they may be referred to as a “Logged-in User”.

In this Policy, the terms “Website”, “Mobile Application” (“App”) are used interchangeably and in both cases, each term refers jointly and severally to the CopDate mobile applications (iOS, Android; including any future versions or updates) and CopDate website (www.CopDate.com, including present and future subdomains).

 

SCOPE & GENERAL DESCRIPTION OF SERVICES

CopDate works with retailers allowing them to send their subscribers time-sensitive announcements about upcoming product launches via push notifications and/or postings inside the App.  Once users receive the notification, they will have the option to attempt a reservation (i.e. to ‘Cop’) or to dismiss the notification (i.e. to ‘Drop’).  

 The ability to make reservations for any individual product is time-sensitive and, without limiting the generality of the foregoing, is subject to the retailers’ stock availability at the time of the attempted reservation.  Reservations are allocated on a ‘first-come-first-serve’ basis based on stock availability and CopDate does not guarantee the availability of any product at the time a reservation is attempted. 

 CopDate does not handle any purchase transactions for the products reserved using our services. All reservations and/or products reserved using CopDate must be purchased from the specified retailer on the day of release and are subject to the terms and conditions set by the individual retailers for each product released.

 Users with successful Reservations (“Cops”) will receive a Reservation and/or Confirmation Number. Bring this Reservation Number to the participating retailer on release day to pick up and purchase your product.

Please consult and carefully read the terms and conditions, rules, and release details set the by the retailer in the reservation confirmation you receive with your successful reservation notification in the App.

 CopDate is not responsible for the fulfillment of any product reservation by the participating retailer.

 All new verified CopDate accounts are activated with complementary credits at no cost to the user. Credit(s) will be deducted from your account for each successful reservation made using the Service. Credits will be deducted only if your reservation is successful. If the product is unavailable or you decide to “DROP”, credits will not be deducted. Accounts must contain at least one (1) credit in order to receive the notifications and use the reservation service.

Location services and notifications for CopDate should be enabled (turned on) in your phone settings in order to optimize the performance of the App.
