Authorized third-party service providers' use of these technology
With our permission, we may collaborate with third-party firms, often known as service providers, who are authorised to place third-party cookies, web beacons, or similar technologies for the purpose of storing information on our sites or in our services, applications, and tools. These companies assist us in providing a better, faster, and safer experience for you.

These service providers are bound by confidentiality agreements with us as well as other legal limits on the use and collecting of personal data. The privacy policies of third parties apply to third-party cookies.
Cookies and tracking technologies from our third-party service providers may be used. Facebook and Google are two service providers with whom we work:

The Facebook Business Tools Terms ('Facebook Terms') describe the specific processing purposes as well as an explanation of the corresponding data privacy duties. For users in the European Economic Area (EEA), the following applies: To the extent that we are solely responsible for the processing of your personal data (including the transmission of such data to Facebook) in accordance with the Facebook Terms (i.e., when Facebook provides comparison, measurement, and analysis services to us), Facebook acts solely on our behalf under an applicable processing agreement (so called Data Processing Terms in addition to the Facebook EU Data Transfer Addendum). If we and Facebook share responsibility for the collection and transmission of your personal data to Facebook (i.e., specifically for the processing of data about your use of our services for the purposes of targeting our advertisements, improving and measuring their effectiveness), Facebook will process the data as an independently accountable party and assume sole responsibility.
We and Facebook have engaged into a Shared Responsibilities Agreement to establish joint responsibilities for the fulfilment of data privacy obligations related to shared processing. According to this agreement, Facebook is responsible for protecting the affected people' rights in relation to the personal data maintained by Facebook under the mutual agreement.

At Yuppieyo, we take our obligations for animal welfare protection very seriously. The Pets category aims to assist individuals in locating suitable, loving, and secure homes for their pets. Please abide by the following regulations when putting an ad on Yuppieyo to safeguard animal welfare and obey UK law:
- Members are permitted two rehoming advertisements per year. Ads that surpass this threshold may be deleted. Note: A litter may be included in a single ad so long as all individuals are pictured. Multiple litters from separate parents or born at different periods are prohibited from being included in the same advertisement.
- All pets must be posted on Yuppieyo with a price. Pet "swapping" is also illegal.
- Pet Wanted advertisements are prohibited.
- Pets are for life . Therefore, we prohibit the advertising of animals as Christmas gifts, Easter gifts, Valentine's Day gifts, etc.
- We discourage reproduction on Yuppieyo. No stud or breeding services are permitted. Similarly, animals cannot be sold for breeding reasons or if they are pregnant.
- Litters cannot be marketed before their birth. This consists of hatching eggs.
- Dogs, cats, and other animals may not be sold before 8 weeks of age. They may be advertised prior to 8 weeks as long as the ad specifies that they will not be rehomed until they reach 8 weeks of age.
- Prior to sale, all dogs older than 8 weeks must be microchipped.
- All advertisements for pets must include a photograph of the particular animal being offered. If selling a litter, each animal must be depicted in the advertisement, either collectively or individually. Lost/found advertisements are excluded from this rule.
- Puppies, kittens, and other litters of mammals must contain a photo of the mother and litter (preferably suckling mum). Ads that are reported to violate this policy will be deleted.
- Yuppieyo prohibits advertisements that offer shipment or delivery of animals. Animals may only be sold locally so that transactions may take place in person and animal welfare can be guaranteed. Likewise, gathering at a third-party site is prohibited for the same reason.
- Imported animals are not permitted. This includes animals rescued from abroad.
- Animals may under no circumstances be sold for use in fights.
On Yuppieyo, certain sorts of pets are not authorised. In addition to our list of prohibited animals, please do not post pets that fall under any of the following restrictions:
- It is prohibited to sell dogs with docked tails, cropped/clipped ears, or tacked eyes. These services are similarly prohibited. Eye tacking is approved in breeds prone to entropion, including Shar Peis.
- Cats with declawed paws and birds with clipped wings are prohibited from being sold. These services are similarly prohibited.
- The Pets category of Yuppieyo is for pets exclusively. We prohibit the selling of hunting and working dogs.
- Yuppieyo prohibits the selling of live or frozen animals for feeder purposes (i.e., mice to be fed to snakes).
- Yuppieyo prohibits the selling of animals whose ownership requires a licence under the Dangerous Wild Animals Act 1976 (legislation.gov.uk)
Yuppieyo is a fantastic platform for buying and selling autos. However, like with any internet purchase or sale, it's critical to approach with caution. Along with the usual scam red flags, there are a few extra things to keep an eye out for when purchasing second-hand vehicles.
Examine the Vehicle
It's always a good idea to inspect any second-hand item before purchasing it. You might also request that the seller meet you at a mechanic's shop for a professional inspection. Be wary if the vendor claims you won't be able to check the vehicle for any reason (particularly if they claim it's in a remote place).
Take the vehicle for a spin
Test drives are an essential component of the car-buying process. If you feel uncomfortable with the situation at any point, don't be scared to leave.
If you're going to test drive a vehicle, make sure someone knows where you're going and who you'll be with. Bring a friend or family member with you if possible.
When selling a car, make sure you get the buyer's driver's licence and evidence of insurance. If everything seems good, go for the test drive with the buyers. Tell someone who you'll be driving with and when you'll return.
Look into the vehicle's past.
It is best to conduct your own history check so that you can examine all of a vehicle's facts. We recommend Get vehicle information from DVLA - GOV.UK (www.gov.uk)
Be Cautious of Escrow Services
Yuppieyo does not provide any type of escrow service. It is a scam if a seller says that their vehicle is in escrow with us. Please do not send any money. Please be aware that any invoices or PayPal communications sent to you in connection with this escrow service are not genuine. If a seller makes these statements, contact us straight away.
Fairness is something that everyone desires and deserves. The Equalities Act of 2010 protects our rights in the United Kingdom, ensuring that we all have equal access to employment, public and private services.
It's critical that your ad respects the law when you post it on Yuppieyo. You must compose your advertisements in such a way that they do not discriminate against anyone based on their age, handicap, gender, race, religion or belief, or sexual orientation.
Know Your Responsibilities and Rights
With this wonderful online tool from the Equality and Human Rights Commission, you can easily bring the spirit and the letter of the law to your posts. Whether you're posting or responding, it can help you discover the answers you need in practically every situation. Plus, it's completely free.
Report an Ad
We rely on our community at Yuppieyo to keep things running smoothly. You can help by reporting an advertisement that you'd want us to look into. We'll collaborate with the owner to ensure that everything is in order.
You must email us in order to get a refund at email@example.com.
