Bibbit Privacy Policy

Preface

 

Get off my lawn! Privacy is as important as it is scarce nowadays. We won’t share that information with third parties to make some moola. Like most websites, using Bibbit and creating a profile mean you agree to share some information with us. Our Terms of Service apply to our Privacy Policy. If you don’t agree to our policy and use of your information, to be described below, don’t use our site.

 

Collected Information

 

When creating an account, you might give us your username, email, birthday, and gender. We use that information to build your profile and to make sure that you are at least 13 years old. We’ll also send emails to you unless you opt out on the Settings page. That said, system emails like password recovery links will continue to be sent. As you use the site, we may collect your IP address, pages visited, browser type, operating system, cookie data, device information, and the actions you perform like commenting, liking, and sharing. With this info, we create anonymous statistics to improve Bibbit. We also tailor your Bibbit experience to reflect your preferences.
