Terms and Conditions of Use

Last update: May 2020

Odysci manages, develops and commercializes the site https://www.odysci.com, as well as all its subdomains, and all its associated tools and services. The set of all web pages under the above domains are referred in this document as the “Site“. All products and services offered by ODYSCI on the Site through a protected login procedure are referred in this document as “Services“. Any person, individually, or representing a company, who completes a registration on the Site, or accesses our Services (via a password-protected login) is referred in this document as a “User“, or simply, as “you”.

We reserve the right to make changes to this Terms at any time. We will notify you via email of any changes that could materially impact your use of the Services or the way we process your personal data. Your continued use of our Services covered by these Terms will signify your acceptance of any and all changes to these Terms made by us from time to time.

1. ACCEPTING THE TERMS

1.1. By accessing the Site and/or using the Services, the User agrees to these Terms and to our Privacy Policy. Agreement to these Terms and to our Privacy Policy forms a legally binding agreement between the User and Odysci in relation to the use of the Site and the Services.

1.2. Users who do not agree with these Terms, or with our Privacy Policy, should NOT access any of the Services offered by Odysci.

2. DATA COLLECTED FROM SOCIAL PLATFORMS

2.1. The Services offered by Odysci allow users to monitor their social media business profiles, to create graphs and dashboards, and to analyze the data present in their social media pages. These data are collected by Odysci using the platforms’ (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube) public APIs and include the publicly available data, as well as data for which the user explicitly authorizes the Services to gather using the platforms’ access dialogs.

  1. If you access YouTube data using the Services, you also agree to the bound by YouTube Terms of Service.
  2. If you access Facebook data using the Services, you also agree to the bound by Facebook Terms of Service.
  3. If you access Instagram data using the Services, you also agree to the bound by Instagram Terms of Use.
  4. If you access Twitter data using the Services, you also agree to the bound by Twitter Terms of Service.

2.2. The Services use the platform APIs to collect data from users’ social media profiles, which include various metrics, such as, number of fans, subscribers or followers, number of postings, number of comments received, etc. The collection of this data, extracted from the social platforms, is called API Data. The integration of the Services with the platform APIs is solely for reading data, and never for writing

2.3. The Services do NOT allow for any changes to be made to the user’s social network profiles through the use of the Services. This includes, but not limited to:

  • The user cannot post any content onto their social media pages.
  • The user cannot “like” any posting made by another user.
  • The user cannot remove any content posted by himself/herself or by any other user, from his/her own social profiles.

2.4. Odysci does not modify any data collected from the social networks through their public APIs, nor does it present the data in any different way that it was originally available in the social network itself. Some of the graphs available in the Services display API Data exactly as collected (for example, number of “likes”). Alternatively, other graphs available in the Services display data computed by Odysci, and not directly available from the API Data. In accordance with the platforms’ Terms of Service, these Odysci-computed metrics and graphs are clearly identified as “not part of Social Platform API Data, and solely part of the Odysci Services.
