What then of use of the data by an organization, and in particular by skyBuilders.com itself?
We pledge never to reveal data about a user to others inside (or outside) skyBuilders unless the user has given explicit consent to its distribution. We are dismayed by recent court decisions that suggest courts may subpoena personal data from a company under some circumstances, and give notice to our users of this sad fact.
Organizations who purchase skyBuilders timeLines must confront the privacy problems presented by personal data in web-accessible form. The user-built aspect of the timeLines data model can provide their users significant protection - even allowing a user to hide behind anonymous "handles" if necessary and still benefit from the "community computer."
The minimum starting information we require from our consultants and developers is an email address. However, once earnings are to be paid, the law requires a taxpayer identifying number. We are looking into the legality of accruing earnings in an interest-bearing account at skyBuilders for "virtual" employees who want to maintain their anonymity for a period of time.
"You may think we do nothing really, but skyBuilders can do virtually anything."
