Quickz is a platform for creating live quizzes.
Some data collection is required for the site to function. This data includes, IP addresses, usernames, email addresses and any other data explicitly entered into the website (such as the content of comments or decks)
Quickz makes use of a self-hosted Plausible Analytics instance to track privacy friendly web analytics. Up to date information regarading the data collected by Plausible can be found at the Plausible website. If you would not like this data to be tracked, block the
Decks can be marked as private or public. This determines whether the deck is visible to other users, however there is no guarantee for confidentiality. Site administrators have the ability to view private decks.
Quickz uses Google OAuth for the authentication process.
- Quickz will only request Google User data from the Google API when chosing to login or sign up with Google.
- Quickz uses the
userinfo.emaildata scopes. This means that it can "See your personal info, including any personal info you've made publicly available", and your email address. Email addresses are only visible to site administrators.
- Quickz uses these scopes to build a profile upon sign up, and verify future logins.
- Quickz may use the username from an email address to generate a publicly visible Quickz username. This can be changed in settings page, and other users would only be able to indirectly find it once the user has created a comment or deck.
Email addresses collected through the sign up process may be used for support or user experience research.
Children under 13 may only sign up for a Quickz account with parental consent.
