Any personal data related to you, which may have been collected through the Website shall be destroyed as per the terms of the Privacy Policy provided under the Website.

InMobi will continue to own and hold on to the ChipIn brand, domain, and technology.

In six years Chipin.com helped thousands of users raise millions from contributors for wide-ranging purposes, including heart surgeries, pet adoptions, college graduation, disaster funds and much more.

Thank you for being part of the ChipIn community! It is gratifying to know that it has made a positive difference for many.


ChipIn Shutdown FAQ

  1. When will ChipIn shut down?

    The ChipIn Web site will be immediately shut down on March 7, 2013. Because of this, event organizers should edit their ChipIns so they end before this date and communicate this to potential contributors via their ChipIn page and other methods as needed.

  2. What will happen to my data?

    We assure you that we will maintain privacy of your information as per our Privacy Policy and applicable privacy laws when the site is shut down, this may include destruction or purging of data except where it is retained solely for archival purposes. Before the shutdown date you can copy text from your ChipIn page entries and export contributor lists.

  3. Why can't I create new ChipIns?

    Allowing new ChipIns to be created up to the shutdown date would increase the likelihood of terminating ChipIns in progress to the detriment of organizers and contributors. Note that existing ChipIns and ChipIn page content can still be edited.

  4. Do I need to do anything to close or deactivate my ChipIn account?

    No. ChipIn will automatically deactivate all accounts on March 7, 2013.
