At Crowdbrite, we're committed to offering the best solution for you to collect, evaluate and grow your ideas. We recognize the trust you've placed in us to be the tool to do this.
Like most website operators, Crowdbrite collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Crowdbrite's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Crowdbrite's visitors use its website. From time to time, Crowdbrite may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Crowdbrite also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. Crowdbrite does not use such information to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Registered users to Crowdbrite's websites choose to interact with Crowdbrite in ways that require Crowdbrite to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Crowdbrite gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. In each case, Crowdbrite collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with Crowdbrite. Crowdbrite does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
One of the primary reasons people use Crowdbrite is to brainstorm content with others. Examples include adding ideas, organizing ideas, commenting on ideas and voting on your favorite ideas.
Solo and Private Canvas Contents
If the Canvas Content is added to a solo canvas, the data is only accessible by your account. If the content is added to a private canvas, the data is only accessible to the users invited to the canvas.

All Canvas Content added to a public canvas, the data is accessible to anyone who accesses the canvas and is licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution Share Alike License.
Securing your data
Crowdbrite has taken strong measures to protect the security of your personal information and canvas content to ensure that your choices for its intended use are honored. We take strong precautions to protect your data from loss, misuse, unauthorized access or disclosure, alteration, or destruction.
Crowdbrite may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Crowdbrite may reveal the average number of canvases users create, or say how many people the average person invites. However, Crowdbrite does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information and Canvas Content
Crowdbrite discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information and canvas content only to those of its employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Crowdbrite's behalf or to provide services available at Crowdbrite's websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Crowdbrite's websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Crowdbrite will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information and canvas content to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations, as described above, Crowdbrite discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information and canvas content only when required to do so by law, or when Crowdbrite believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Crowdbrite, third parties, or the public at large.
