Terms of Service

TERMS OF SERVICE

This is the terms of use agreement (the “Agreement”) that governs your use of Scany's website, apps, and data. If you do not agree with these terms, please stop using Scany’s website, uninstall our apps, and refrain from using our data.

GENERAL TERMS

Scany.com may change any of the terms and conditions in this Agreement at any time for any reason. A notice of material change will be posted on Scany website, and you are responsible for reviewing the changes. If you do not agree with them, do not continue to use Scany website, uninstall our apps, and refrain from using our data.

Scany does not provide any guarantee or warranty of the accuracy of any data. By using Scany, you are certifying that you are over 13 years of age and have your legal guardian’s permission.

The data Scany provides is public information. It is gathered by Scany’s proprietary software from 3rd party sources. The data is then collated, organized, manipulated, and displayed in unique ways by Scany. This makes the data proprietary.

DATA RIGHTS

Sharing Scany data, including screen shots or images of Scany website, is allowed providing you credit Scany as the source of said data and/or images. The acceptable way to do this is to provide a link back to the source of the data, and clearly state in text that Scany provides the data. This includes sharing our data on Social Media websites, on blogs, and in any sort of publication.

Mass copying data from Scany’s website (to include botting, crawling, scraping, etc.) is not allowed and may result in you being blocked from Scany’s website and data. The only way you may gather large amounts of data is through our custom reports function, or by requesting data directly from Scany (email our staff, or submit a support ticket).

It is Scany policy to not delete data on our website. All the data on our website is gathered from public sources, and Scany will continue to display said data. If you want us to stop displaying the statistics of your channel/account from a third party (e.g. YouTube, Twitch, Instagram), you will have to adjust your privacy settings on said third party website. Again just to reinstate, the data shown on Scany is the same public data anyone could get by visiting your profile on various social media sites and writing it down. We do not display private data. If we were to delete or change any of the data shown it would ruin our journalstic/encylopedic integrity. If you want a private social media profile simply mark it as private on that site and we won't collect its public data, otherwise we will.

DATA SOURCES

In order to keep statistical data updated, Scany utilizes API services of third parties including but not limited to Facebook, Instagram, Twitch, Twitter, Daily Motion, Mixer, and YouTube. Unless specific access is asked for at time of use (i.e. to validate your identity), we are only gathering publicly available data from each of the API services, not anything private about your account. When private data is granted it isn't being stored, it is just being used to verify various things such as how many views you received in the last month to see if you qualify of for services.

CHANNEL MANAGEMENT / CONSULTING

By signing up for channel management, the channel owner will be authorizing Scany to work on their YouTube channel as a channel manager. The channel owner also agrees that Scany is not liable for any damages to the YouTube channel.

In both Channel Management and Consulting sessions Scany will use best business practices to promote managed YouTube channels using Search Engine Optimization, but results are not guaranteed.

 

WE WILL NOT DELETE OR REMOVE PUBLIC INFORMATION UNLESS WE RECEIVE A LEGALLY-BINDING ORDER TO DO SO.
Again as stated above, we are not storing, sharing, or displaying private data without explicit permission for specific purposes such as applying for services.
