Our Services are primarily designed to help you share information with the world. Most of the information you provide to us is information you are asking us to make public. This includes not only the messages and notes you write about content and forum posts, but also any other place where you are able to type. The metadata provided with CONSTRUCTSKILLS, such as when you are certified, shows up in your public profile page.
