This policy describes the general information that we (Brevy, the site Brevy.org) collect and how that information may be used. Please note that links to other sites exist throughout this site, and that the policy here is not valid for such links as they are owned and operated by external parties.
You are not required to create an account or provide persona information to have general access to Brevy services.
When you sign up for an account on Brevy, your username and password are required, whereas your real name and email address are optional. Your username and real name (if provided) may be made public and is primarily used to show authorship of pages and page edits throughout the site. Please be aware that the editing or creation of a page while not signed in will result in your IP address being made visible on the site. Should you wish to avoid this, you should either log in to an account or choose not to contribute to the site while not logged in. Your email address (if provided), may be made public in select circumstances of need (such as a site administrator trying to reach you to resolve an issue), but is generally not published across the site like your account name when showing author credit. All other information you provide to the site may be made public.
Timestamps are often used throughout the site to show when a page was edited or created. For instance, this may include the article ID (as part of the url) of summary articles created or notes listed in the revisions listing of an article. Please be aware that if someone knew your username, they might extrapolate from this information that you were editing this site at that time.
Cookies and Standard Information
We resolve to not provide your information to third parties as much as possible. This may be hindered, amended, or superseded if:
- For some reason, we are required by law to release your information to governing authorities and must comply.
- Advertisements are added to the site, in which case only non-personally identifiable information (information that can't be tracked back to who you, specifically, are) will be shared.
- We are providing aggregate and non-personal data about Brevy (for example, the number of users editing an article).
- We deem it necessary to investigate a severe security or safety concern.
