Purpose of Data Collection
VoiceThread is an online service that allows users to share and discuss digital media. The basic service structure is similar to wiki platforms or blogging platforms. Users upload media that we store and then distribute and make available to whomever the user determines should have access to it. The audience for that media is then given an opportunity to make comments about the media asynchronously, and a conversation takes place over time. VoiceThread collects first name, last name, and email address. These items are used to provision user accounts and identify them when they create content. Users may opt to go by an alias rather than real first and last name. VoiceThread utilizes Amazon Web Services as a datacenter, but user information is not shared with any other third party.
