Our services are according to the Code of Conduct made by the telecom operators.
Yepp-Yepp does not send out emails. Our affiliate networks refer to our products in their promotional material, which are distributed through various mediums including email. If you have signed up with such a network to receive promotional material via email, you could therefore receive a Yepp-Yepp offer. If you do not wish to receive these emails, you should contact the sender of the email and state your request. In most cases, there will be an unsubscription button within these emails that will allow you to block further communication from a particular party. Alternatively, you can block the sender of this email with a function within your own email application (Hotmail, Outlook, Gmail etc).
Some computer software is offered free of charge and comes with integrated advertising.
Such advertising allow the software developers to offer the software for free, and can be present in many applications including download accelerators, weather forecast tools, and music download applications. Our affiliate networks can promote Yepp-Yepp services via these applications, which will appear as a pop-up in screen. Also, some websites generate their own pop-ups. Most of the time, this is done to enable them to continue to offer their products/information free of charge. Your can compare this situation to free to air television, where commercials are broadcasted during shows to cover the cost of broadcasting those shows. Pop-ups are harmless and can be closed in the same way as every other window. If however, you wish to stop these pop-ups, you can either uninstall the application causing them, or install a pop-up blocker such as AdAware.
