What does Blackberry ID sync?

I found this in the Blackberry ID help documentation. It is very sparse and does not detail the function of Blackberry ID. Nevertheless, here is an excerpt.

 

"With BBM 7.0 or later, your BBM contacts, profile, and group memberships are automatically backed up over the wireless network, and are associated with your BlackBerry ID. When you switch devices, your BBM contacts, profile, and group memberships are automatically added to your new device when you sign in using your BlackBerry ID."

 


Is there documentation somewhere that explains exactly what your Blackberrry ID "backups" and what it does with the personal information on your OS 10 device? We are a business and do not want to have anything being downloaded  off of our devices or "backed up" without our knowledge. I was unable to find any documentation on Blackberry ID other than what is minimally explained in the topic's help section located on this website.

 

Thank you for any help you can give.

On your BlackBerry10 device, nothing but your BBMessenger contacts, group memberships and profile are backed up to servers, that I know of.

No address book contacts, mail, messages, or anything.

OK. Thank you for your help.

 

Is there a more robust resource on Blackberry IDs?
