Thank you for visiting! This is going to be two parts, the first is the part for people. That’s people like you and me who just want to see what the rules are without being forced to read a book and then agree we read it. We all know nobody has time for that, except lawyers. So the parts for the lawyers, and people who really do want to read a giant book of rules with archaic/arcane language, is at the end of this document. Yip Yip is a communication platform that allows one to many communication to social and blog type media. At no time will Yip Yip use the information provided to it in any activity other than the normal course of business as a communication platform. We let one person communicate for many people. Yip Yip will not sell or market information about its users, clients, subscribers, customers, or business partners without their explicit permission. Information obtained during normal activity such as an web site visits and other metrics may be used to generate marketing reports and for other internal performance reporting, but every effort will be made to remove any personally identifiable data from any non-internal report or presentation that may be shared in public. Account information is used only to authenticate clients and customers, and will never be used to market products or services, nor will it ever be disclosed to any parties outside of the platform. User accounts may have an administrator account that supervises them, and this administrator account may view the contact information of the user in order to perform maintenance functions like making or deleting accounts under their control.
The software platform has three functions:
Create and organize content (Articles) for posting to a website (Blog)
Post links to that content, or to other URLs, on social media
Manage groups or teams of users, and their content
To enable social media management a user will allow the platform to post on their behalf utilizing OAUTH. The platform will never automatically post or pre-fill a post! The user, or their administrator must interactively create posts. However, a post may be suggested by an administrator to a user group.
Posts can be scheduled for future publishing by writing it now, and then choose to post it later. This lets you write a Christmas card in November and schedule it to go out in December, and is not considered an automatic post.
Users agree to only sign in to social media accounts they own. Use of second or third party accounts is strictly prohibited and may be reported as abuse to the social network, whose policy this violates. Use of multiple accounts or false identities of any kind to create, enable, or send spam of any kind is prohibited.
Copyright is important to us. Please do not “cut-and-paste” the work of other authors in to our platform, this is an act of theft and should it be reported by the original author or their agents, we will remove any work without notice.
Social Media Access
In the course of using the platform users may connect to social media.
This allows the platform access to the following items, for the following purposes:
Basic information Allows the software to retrieve some basic information from your profile, about you like your name or your avatar photo. These items are typically already public.
Birthday Provides access to the birthday, this comes as default with most services. We do not use this information.
Manage Pages Manage the userâ€™s pages they may have at a service like Facebook. For example, you might have a page for buying and selling Bicycle Parts that you want our app to be able to post as.
Post to Profile The app can post to your feed. You will only get posts that you specifically write, or that you accept from your boss who wrote them for you.
Post to Pages The app can post to pages you manage. For example maybe you dont own the Bicycle Parts page, you are just an admin on it with a team of other admins. If you are, you can choose to let this app post to the page for you.
Manage Photos The app may manage photos and albums if you are attaching photos to posts, or want to delete a photo, etc.
BusinessÂ Manager The app can post to businesses you manage. Perhaps instead of Page you have set up a Bussiness instead, which is a special thing at some networks. This allows us to post to those Business pages, and to their Location Specific pages.
Insights The app can collect information about posts including likes, shares, comments
Friends List The app can view your friends list, so we can give you an estimation of how many people might see your post. It us to the social network whether or not they show your post to all of your friends, and they all have their own way of doing things.
