ZACollective Terms of Service

Terms of Service:

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

General terms

ZACollective 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 ZACollective's website, and you are responsible for reviewing the changes. If you do not agree with them, do not continue to use ZACollective's website, and refrain from using our data.

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

The data ZACollective provides is public information. It is gathered by ZACollective's proprietary software from third-party sources. The data is then collated, organised, manipulated, and displayed in unique ways by ZACollective. This makes the data proprietary.

Data rights

Sharing ZACollective's data, including screen shots or images of ZACollective's website, is allowed providing you credit ZACollective as the source of said data/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 ZACollective provides the data. This includes sharing our data on Social Media websites, on blogs and in any sort of publication.

Data that is shared from ZACollective on YouTube videos should include a link in the description and a verbal or written acknowledgement of ZACollective as the source of the data in the video itself.

Mass copying data from ZACollective's website (to include botting, crawling, scraping, etc.) is not allowed and may result in you being blocked from ZACollective's website and data. The only way you may gather large amounts of data is by requesting data directly from ZACollective (email is the best way of doing this).

it is ZACollective's policy to not delete data on our website. All the data on our website is gathered from public sources, and ZACollective 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), you will have to adjust your privacy settings on said third-party website. Again just to reinstate, the data shown on ZACollective 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 journalistic/encyclopedic 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, ZACollective utilises API services of third-parties including but not limited to Twitch and YouTube. Unless specific access is asked for at the time of use (i.e. to validate your identity), we are only going 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.

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.
This Document is Effective as of May 14th, 2020. Last Updated: May 14th, 2020.
