Personally Identifiable Information
Any information using which a person can be uniquely identified is referred to as personal identifiable information. Examples are email ID, phone number, passport number, national insurance number, any of the IDs provided by any authorities (government, non-government) that identifies a person, such as Skype ID, Facebook ID, LinkedIn ID, etc.
Bare Minimum Personal Info Policy
PublicBI strongly believes in its bare minimum personal info policy. I.e. collect only as minimum personal information as required to provide a service to its users and nothing more should be collected, stored, shared or processed. On a regular basis, proactively go through the collected records to find out records of people who are no longer users of the services or find out records of people that are no longer relevant as users, and then proactively delete the corresponding personal information part of the record that has been captured earlier. In the instance of a country's regulation permitting more personal information to be collected than what is required for PublicBI to provide its services, PublicBI will capture only bare minimum personal info that is required to provide its services to the user. Only if there is a legal/compliance requirement or a mandate in a country to collect certain personal information, will PublicBI capture more personal information than it requires to provide a service to its users. If you do not use any of our services that require personal information or are just a site visitor then we don't automatically capture any of the personal information, except for the details collected as part of the cookies.
PublicBI does not by default share personal information with third parties. Only in instances, where there is a business/operational requirement and consent from the users, PublicBI shares personal information with third parties.
