What information does the Bizzyb Team collect about me?
In order to complete business adventures or mentor and comment on other users’ projects, you need to make an account. During account creation, we ask you for a username, your country, birth month and year, gender, and your email address (or your parent or guardian’s email address if you are under 13 years old). Other users can see your username and country, but not your age, gender, or email address.
All of your BizzyB projects, comments, and posts are stored on the BizzyB servers. Other users can see your shared projects, comments, and forum posts, along with your username. Because the BizzyB team is responsible for the application, we have access to all content stored on the BizzyB application and website, including unshared projects. If you want to work on adventures in complete privacy, we offer Adventure Books for sale at Amazon.com.
When you use Bizzyb, our servers will automatically store a limited amount of information about how you use the application. This information includes a number that identifies your computer (the IP address), which pages you visited, and what browser you are using and how you use the application.
When you visit the bizzyb website, it may asks your browser to put an http “cookie” on your computer. The cookie is actually a small text file that our site can send to your browser for storage on your computer. This allows the website to remember that you are logged in when you go to a different page.
