SportsYapper is made available by Yapp Media, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company ("Yapp Media", "we" or "us"). We respect your privacy and want to make sure you understand our privacy practices and how information is collected and used by us. Please read the following carefully to understand our views and practices regarding your Personal Information and how we will treat it.
We may also collect and store other information that you voluntarily choose to provide, including as part of your SportsYapper user profile, which you may update via the SportsYapper website or mobile applications. Such information may include your name; age; profession; location; a brief description of yourself; your email address; SportsYapper password; and any other personal information you provide. If you contact us we may also keep a record of that correspondence.
All of your activity on SportsYapper and information in your SportsYapper user profile will be publicly viewable and capable of being shared by other SportsYapper visitors and users.
While you are using SportsYapper on a smartphone, tablet, or other mobile device, we may, with your consent, automatically collect geolocational information from your mobile device, your wireless carrier, or certain third-party service providers ("Geolocational Information"). You can withdraw this consent at any time.
In addition to the information noted above, we may also collect the following information (collectively, the "Other Information"):
|Cookie Name||Description of purpose|
|SY||This authentication cookie is used to know whether a user is logged in or not so they can move between web pages.|
|SY_recent||This cookie collects information about the pages which users have visited. We use the information to compile reports and to help us improve the site.|
|Google Analytics||These cookies are used to collect information about how visitors use our site. We use the information to compile reports and to help us improve the site.|
The cookies collect information in an anonymous form, including the number of visitors to the site, where visitors have come to the site from, the pages they visited and the number of yapps they have made.
All of your activity on SportsYapper, such as your Yapps, Check Ins, favorite teams, users you follow, and any information in your profile will be viewable by other visitors and users of SportsYapper. Please only post content and provide information you are comfortable being seen and shared by others, including people who are not your friends. When you share information or content you should think carefully about what you are making public. This information may also be indexed by search engines and, with your permission, shared on Facebook and Twitter. Further, other SportsYapper users may copy and share information you post on SportsYapper. SportsYapper cannot control or prevent this kind of activity.
Third-party applications or services may access your Personal Information only if you give them explicit permission to do so. SportsYapper uses standard OAuth (open authorization) to enable you to give permission to share your Personal Information with other websites and services, such as Facebook and Twitter (e.g., when you agree to a pop-up requesting you to allow another application to access your account information). We also use OAuth to allow us to share information about you that is stored by us (e.g., your Yapps and Check-In information) without sharing your security credentials.
SportsYapper may contact you by email regarding updates to our policies and to the SportsYapper service and to send daily or weekly activity summaries or other activities and information that we feel may be of interest to you. You may elect to turn off or unsubscribe from such email notifications.
In addition to the above, we may use information we collect as described below:
In each of the scenarios described above, such third parties may be located in the United States or anywhere else in the world and you consent to such processing wherever that may take place.
We take commercially reasonable steps to protect the information we collect from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. Please understand, however, that no security system is impenetrable and the transfer of information via the internet is not completely secure. We cannot guarantee the security of our databases, nor can we guarantee that the information you supply will not be intercepted while being transmitted to and from us over the Internet. In particular, email sent to or from SportsYapper may not be secure, and you should therefore take special care in deciding what information you send to us via email. Any transmission is at your own risk.
All information you provide to us is stored on secure servers.
Where we have given you (or you have chosen) a password that enables you to access certain parts of our platforms, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. You should not share it with anyone.
SportsYapper is operated in the United States. If you are located outside of the United States, please be aware that any information you provide to us (including Personal Information) will be transferred to the United States. By using SportsYapper and/or providing us with any information, you consent to this transfer and to the Personal Information being processed in the US.
You have the right to access Personal Information held about you. Any access request, however, may be subject to a fee.
You can modify the Personal Information you have provided to us and/or permanently delete your SportsYapper account. If you delete your SportsYapper account we will delete all the Personal Information held about you which is publically available (e.g. your user profile and any Yapps or photographs you have posted) although Personal Information may still reside on our servers, subject to applicable law.
