3. CHILDREN'S PRIVACY. YYppEE is committed to protecting the privacy of children. Neither YYppEE nor any of its services are designed or intended to attract children under the age of 13. YYppEE does not collect personally identifiable information from any person it actually knows is under the age of 13. If YYppEE discovers that a child under 13 has sent an email request to us or in any other way provided personal information to YYppEE, that personal information will be deleted from YYppEE’s systems as soon as possible. The parent or guardian is solely responsible for providing supervision of the minor's use of YYppEE.

Nob Hill Rd. Suite 350 Plantation, Florida 33324.
4. NON-PERSONAL INFORMATION. Even if you do not provide personally identifiable information to the Site, YYppEE collects non-personal information about your use of the Site. Your visit to the Site is tracked through a standard web traffic statistics program, which keeps records of traffic on the site, as well as numerical counts of visitors by domain, URL, search engine, keywords used, and other standard web measurements. YYppEE’s server automatically collects data about your server’s Internet address when you visit the Site. This information, known as an Internet Protocol address, or IP Address, is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer by your Internet service provider whenever you are on the Internet. When you request pages from the Site, YYppEE’s servers may log your IP Address and sometimes your domain name. Your IP Address is used to help identify you and to gather demographic information about our Diners as a whole, but does not include personally identifiable information. Our server may also record the referring page that linked you to us (e.g., another web site or a search engine); the pages you visit on this Site; the web site you visit after this Site; the ads you see and/or click on; other information about the type of web browser, computer, platform, related software and settings you are using; any search terms you have entered on this Site or a referral site; and other web usage activity and data logged by YYppEE’s web servers. YYppEE uses this information for internal system administration, to help diagnose problems with our server, and to administer the Site. Such information may also be used to gather demographic information, such as country of origin and Internet Service Provider. YYppEE may link this information with your personally identifiable information.
YYppEE may disclose user information to government authorities, and to other third parties when compelled to do so by government authorities, at its discretion, or otherwise as required or permitted by law, including but not limited to in response to court orders and subpoenas. YYppEE also may disclose user information in connection with investigations or when it has reason to believe that someone is causing injury to or interference with its rights or property, other users of the Site, or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities.
5. LINKS TO THIRD PARTY WEBSITES. The YYppEE Site may contain links to other websites. Once you enter another website (whether through an advertisement, service, or content link), be aware that YYppEE is not responsible for the privacy practices of these other sites. YYppEE encourages you to look for and review the privacy statements of each and every web site that you visit through a link or advertisement on YYppEE. YYppEE does not disclose your personally identifiable information to these third party websites.
In some cases, when you click on a link or an advertisement on the Site, in an e-mail or newsletter, your browser may be momentarily directed to the website of a third party which, acting on behalf of YYppEE, notes or "counts" your response to the e-mail or newsletter before re-directing your browser to your selected destination; this re-direction process may not be apparent to you.
YYppEE offers Contact Importer tools to help upload third party addresses so that you can find your friends on YYppEE, and invite your contacts who do not have YYppEE accounts to join. If you give YYppEE your password to retrieve your Contacts, we will not store your password after you have uploaded your Contacts information. One of the primary reasons people use YYppEE is to aggregate their internet usage and to share content with others, such as your status, photos, videos, shared links, comments or messages. If you do not want YYppEE to store metadata associated with content you share on YYppEE, please remove the metadata before uploading the content.
7. CALIFORNIA PRIVACY RIGHTS; CHANGES TO YOUR PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION; COMPLAINTS.
California law permits residents of California to request certain details about what personal information a company shares with third parties for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes.

If you want to (1) delete your personally identifiable information from YYppEE’s systems, (2) update the personally identifiable information that you have provided to YYppEE, or (3) change your preferences with respect to receiving newsletters or other activities, select use the Contact Us link on the Site. Upon your request, YYppEE will delete your personally identifiable information from its active databases and where feasible from its back-up media. You should be aware that it is not technologically possible to remove each and every record of the information you have provided to YYppEE from its servers.

Plantation, FL 33324
At YYppEE, the security of our user’s information is our highest priority. So, we do a myriad of things to protect your sensitive data.
First, when it comes to your password, even WE cannot see it. Like a bank or other financial institution, we make our password storage system work in a way that only the person who created the password can login with it or reset it. Basically when you sign up with YYppEE, you enter your password and we do some fancy programming to compute a special value that "represents" the password. Then when you login, we run the password you enter against that represented password to see if they match. If they do, you're in, and if they don't you're not. That's why when you reset your password, all we can do is give you a new temporary one because we don't know the original. Cool huh?
Second, when it comes to all that sensitive data; whether it's from your social networks or emails, we don't ever store that information on our servers. We are a "pass-through." When you login and request that information, we ask the services for it, and then pass the info directly on to you. That way, we ensure that all data that is passed through YYppEE is "transient" and never held for periods of time in something like a database. The other way we interact with services is by utilizing a username/password combination that you provide. That information is used only over a secure channel and is encrypted on our servers. This is the same way any "app" would use that information to connect to another service. And if you decide you no longer want YYppEE to access your account, you can remove the service with a single click.
Third, there are 2 basic ways we connect with third-parties in order to provide you your content. For the majority of systems (e.g. Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Flickr, Yahoo!, etc) we connect using OAuth (Open Authentication) which allows us to connect directly over a secure connection to the data source and retrieve your data via a token issued by the third-party.
Fourth, per Wikipedia "OAuth is an open standard for authorization. OAuth provides a method for clients to access server resources on behalf of a resource owner (such as a different client or an end-user). It also provides a process for end-users to authorize third-party access to their server resources without sharing their credentials (typically, a username and password pair), using user-agent redirections."
And finally, we utilize best practices when it comes to working all those services that you take advantage of when using YYppEE. We use THEIR API's (application programming interfaces) in the way that they stipulate it. If they offer secure data transmission (which most do) we transmit everything securely. While we cannot control the security practices of all those services, we do make sure that we do everything we can to make your experience with YYppEE not only fun, but private and secure.
