We do not, at this time, have any analytical plugins or tracking code on our website to collect user data while visiting our site. Example, Google Analytics to track where website visitors are coming from and for how long you are visiting our site. This is something we may implement later, but will let visitors know by doing so upon visiting the site or this page.
However, both wordbyrd.me and wordbyrd.biz do implement Google Analytics to help our customers gain insight to bettering their marketing material so they can allocate their advertising budgets effectively to their every day business endeavours.
SHARING YOUR QUICK RESPONSE CARD & ONLINE DIGITAL PROFILE
Sharing your Quick Response Card and Online Digital Profile are at your own risk. We can not control the distribution of your QR Card, but can pause or remove the profile that is attached to your card, thus rendering it useless. We will not share your profile or card unless The WordByrd Network Inc. has your consent, and the only people you choose to share it with will have access to, or your permission to share the card for you. Sharing your card and profile information would be the equivalent to you handing out and sharing your business card and/or contact details with others where sharing is considered to be of public domain. That is, if you are sharing information with others from which you are providing a service or product, then this would be considered marketing material in which you consent to share with the public. If the profile and card are used for personal reasons, the profile is still considered a public service in which depending on whom the card and profile domain is shared with, it is reasonable to assume that these could be shared publicly should the user not take precautionary measures to prevent it from doing so.
We always do our best to make all of our Quick Response Cards and Online Digital Profile designs as unique as possible. That being said, there are only so many ways you can layout a profile based on the aspect ratio and size of the mobile screen. Therefore it’s likely that you could have the same layout as another WordByrd client, or that your card could look similar in design and feel. What should set your profile apart from someone else’s (business or individual) is profile pictures, logos/watermarks, brand names, colour and font choices. Another business or individual’s profile may be similar in look, even in feel with exact likeness, but that does not mean they are copying your profile and will not be required to have their profile taken down. As long as they are using contact information, and images/logos that belong to them, then design similarities or exactness between different WordByrd profiles is permitted, and something that may be common based on our previous remark about mobile devices. Any requests to take down profiles will be subject to The WordByrd Network Inc.’s review, and ultimately it is your responsibility to contact the user of another profile if you feel that they are fraudulently using materials belonging to you or your business. This is similar to our Quick Response Cards. The QR Code itself can only be altered in so many ways to give it a unique look and to still have it work and function correctly. It is more common and likely that your QR Code will look similar to another person’s card, but once again, branding added to the card will separate one user’s card from the other’s.
