Bulk Pinner does not store any users’ data. When a user authenticates the application to interact with Pinterest,
the authentication token is stored on the users computer, in their browser to be exact. If the user uses Bulk Pinner
again in the future, that token will be read and re-used so that the user doesn’t have to authenticate the app every
time they visit. If the user visits from another computer or using another browser on the same computer, they will
need to authenticate again, because the authentication token is only stored in the browser that they access Bulk Pinner from.
The image, note and link that the user specifies when clicking the Pin button gets sent straight to Pinterest.
There are no third party servers that could peek at the data.
When a pin is created in Bulk Pinner, there is an event that is sent to Google Analytics. This is purely an
indication of a user using the application, and doesn’t have any identifiable data associated with it. This
is the only custom event tracking that is occuring on Bulk Pinner.

I built Bulk Pinner as an extension to Pinterest. In no way could it replace using Pinterests’
own website and mobile applications.

I received an email today indicating that Bulk Pinner's access to Pinterest has been revoked.
The reason I was given is because people have been using Bulk Pinner to spam Pinterest.
I will now have to reassess how to move forward with Bulk Pinner, as I don't want people who are doing the right thing
to miss out on using the tool.
I don't know how long it will take before Bulk Pinner regains its access to Pinterest.
