1. Core Principles
When you use our YouTube features, you allow Definitely Filipino to read the content of your YouTube channel and YouTube playlists. This content will be processed by our system, change how it was presented based on your preference, and then display it on your website or application.
By using Definitely Filipino, you agree to be bound by YouTube’s Terms of Service and YouTube API Services Terms of Service.
If you do not want Definitely Filipino to handle your YouTube content anymore, you can always delete all the related data that you used in our system. You can always find the Delete button on the main page or account settings of our dashboard.
If you have further inquiries to help you with this, you can always email us at [email protected] Filipino.com. Additionally, you can also check the Google security settings page at https://security.google.com/settings/security/permissions to make sure any data that you permitted to be used can be revoked at any time.
3. Facebook & Instagram
When you use Definitely Filipino, it is required to login with Facebook or connect your Facebook & Instagram accounts. To create your Definitely Filipino account, we store your first name, last name, email and Facebook ID. By logging in, you allow Definitely Filipino to get the list of Facebook pages and Instagram accounts that you own or manage. This way, you can easily select a Facebook page or Instagram account that you want to be used with our services.
For example, you want to compare your Facebook page’s ratings and reviews via Definitely Filipino. You select certain Facebook pages from your list. We store only the Facebook page access token, page ID and list of rating information of the Facebook page. You view the comparison via dynamic bar charts in Definitely Filipino dashboard. There you can see the rating count, overall star rating, five star to one star rating counts.
Another example, you want to customize the look and feel of your Facebook page’s events feed via Definitely Filipino. You select a certain Facebook page from the list. We store only the Facebook page access token, page ID and list of events of the Facebook page. You customize the look and feel via Definitely Filipino dashboard. Once you’re satisfied with how it looks like, you may now use the Definitely Filipino embed code on your website.
By logging in, you also allow Definitely Filipino to do the same with other content generated from your Facebook page. This includes your Facebook page photo albums, photos, videos, posts and reviews. You allow us to store those types of data from the Facebook page that you selected to be used on our services. If you wanted to delete the information we stored from your Facebook page, you can just use the “Delete” button. Your customized feed and related information from your Facebook page will be deleted immediately.
