It is not our intention to be able to identify our users. In fact, we even prefer users to use our service anonymously (by using account names and email addresses which do not correspond to user's real identity). However, we are often able to know user's identity - for example when he registers to our service via his Facebook or Google account. Therefore, we need to explain what user's data is used and how it is used - and also, how it will not be used.
What personal information do we collect from the people that visit our website?
We collect user's account name (which may correspond to his real name, although it is not required), his e-mail address, country, and the answers submitted by him to quiz questions. Additionally, we collect information about user's gender, age and city, only if provided by user.
Why do we collect information?
Personal data such as country, city, age and gender is used to create various answer-based statistics (ex. best country in a given quiz category; male/female correctness ratio etc). These statistics are presented in the service in order to enrich user experience. All computed and presented statistics are non personally-identifiable, with the exception of 'user knowledge profile' explained below.
The quiz answers given by the user are used to generate his 'user knowledge profile. The sole purpose of 'user knowledge profile' is the presentation of user's achivements in the game. The 'user knowledge profile' is not used for any other purposes and it is not disclosed to any third parties.
The "user knowledge profile" is by default kept confidential and presented to its owner only. User may decide to publish his knowledge profile openly if he selects such option in his 'account settings'.
