This policy applies to all information collected or submitted on browserboard.com.
Information we collect
The operators of Browserboard are able to see all data you enter except your password.
If you sign up
- Your username, email address, and password
- All your interactions with the whiteboard tool
- Any information you enter into a form
If you don't sign up
If you participate in a whiteboard drawing without logging in, for example by visiting a link someone else shares with you, Browserboard stores:
- All your interactions with the whiteboard tool
- A random ID for your session
- The name you entered the first time you visited Browserboard
Our server software may also store basic technical information, such as your IP address, in temporary memory or logs.
Ads and analytics
Browserboard integrates with Google Analytics and sends information such as what web site you came from, your IP address, and your browser user agent to Google. We do this so we can understand where our traffic is coming from.
Browserboard only uses Google Analytics on the landing page and other marketing-oriented pages. Google Analytics is not used when viewing a whiteboard or when using the logged-in areas of the site.
We use the information we collect to operate and improve our website and customer support.
We do not share personal information with outside parties except to the extent necessary to accomplish Browserboard’s functionality. We may share anonymous, aggregate statistics with outside parties, such as how many people have used the site.
We may disclose your information in response to subpoenas, court orders, or other legal requirements; to exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims; to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud or abuse, violations of our policies; or to protect our rights and property.
In the future, we may sell to, buy, merge with, or partner with other businesses. In such transactions, user information may be among the transferred assets.
We implement a variety of security measures to help keep your information secure. For instance, all communication with the website requires HTTPS. Passwords are hashed, not stored, using industry-standard methods.
Accessing, changing, or deleting information
You may request to change or delete your information by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Deleted information may be kept in backups for up to 90 days. Backups are encrypted and are only accessed if needed for disaster recovery.
Browserboard may delete your information at any time and for any reason, such as technical needs, legal concerns, abuse prevention, removal of idle accounts, data loss, or any other reason.
While we are able to delete your username, name, and email address from our database, we are not able to delete your interactions with whiteboards. If you delete your account, these interactions will remain, but they will no longer be associated with your personal information.
California Online Privacy Protection Act Compliance
We comply with the California Online Privacy Protection Act. We therefore will not distribute your personal information to outside parties without your consent.
Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act Compliance
We never collect or maintain information at our website from those we actually know are under 13, and no part of our website is structured to attract anyone under 13.
Information for European Union Customers
By using Browserboard and providing your information, you authorize us to collect, use, and store your information outside of the European Union.
International Transfers of Information
Information may be processed, stored, and used outside of the country in which you are located. Data privacy laws vary across jurisdictions, and different laws may be applicable to your data depending on where it is processed, stored, or used.
