The Bike Index wants to be the best place to save and share your bike on the internet. For us, prioritizing user privacy and being transparent in our policies is a required part of that.
This post is our explanation of our approach.
First, our goals:
With the recent discussion about privacy brought on by revelations about PRISM, it seemed like a good time to clarify the Bike Index's intentions.
Terms of Service; Didn't Read (TOSDR) is an online resource that rates and labels website terms and privacy policies. We submitted our site to TOSDR, but they haven't evaluated it yet, so here is our own review of our policies:
You don't grant any copyright license to Bike Index
You can sign up with a pseudonym
Changes can happen any time, sometimes without notice
We are transparent in complying with law enforcement requests.
Your account can be suspended and your data deleted any time for any reason
Your personal information is used for limited purposes
