Hello Leeroy

Yola respects the Intellectual Property rights of their customers and does not lay any claim to your copyrighted content. Anything you post on your website remains your intellectual property. We do from time to time feature our customers' websites in our marketing material, or on our website. This is normally done by posting a screenshot of the homepage with a link back to the original site. This is standard internet practice: any site can link to any other site. It is also mutually beneficial as it helps drive traffic to your site.

Perhaps the following statement from our Terms will clarify: Intellectual Property Rights You acknowledge that Yola owns all right, title, and interest in and to the Site, the Yola Toolset and/or any content on the Site not posted by a Yola User and/or an acknowledged third party, including all intellectual property rights (the "Yola IP"). Yola IP is protected by United States of America, South African and international intellectual property laws. Accordingly, you agree that you will not copy, reproduce, alter, modify, or create derivative works from the Yola Web Site or Yola IP. You also agree that you will not use any robot, spider, other automated device or manual process to monitor or copy any content from the Yola Web Site or Yola IP.

Basically this means that we own the intellectual property rights for our own website ( and our software, and you own the intellectual property rights for any content that you post.

So Yola owns the platform, and you own your website. You can also sell your website, but we are unable to assist with the sale or get involved in any disputes that may arise.
