doubts about the information I'm Sharing

Hi, I would like to find out the extent of the information I'm sharing by installing BBID on my phone. 

I do not want to share the content of my smart phone, such as: phone numbers, pictures, messages, etc. 

Thanks for your help

Re: doubts about the information I'm Sharing

Thank you for your answer.

I had already read the terms and conditions and legal notice, but I cannot find anywhere how much of “My Content” am I making available to RIM when I subscribe to a BB ID or when I share information via BB messenger with another smart phone.

This “concern” derives from the contractual need of keeping the information I share with fellow workers vía BB messenger private, since I´m using a corporate phone. Therefore, I would like to know: how much of this information can be accessed by RIM ?  Again, thanks for any help on this subject

for BlackBerry ID :

  1. on the current page, click on the Legal link in the bottom right corner.
  2. you get to a page, in section 4 is a link for the BlackBerry ID T&C, it will be a PDF. http://us.blackberry.com/legal/blackberry-id-terms-and-conditions.html
  3. in that PDF, information about "You Content" is in section B.4.

 

Please read carefully the paragraphs that refer to applications linked to BlackBerry ID, since BBM7 is entirely linked to BBID.

 

For BlackBerry Messenger:

  • a 5-min search on my side did not succeed in finding a monolith document about the T&C
  • some information, as well a a contact if you need more, can be found here:
  • http://us.blackberry.com/legal/privacy-policy.html#rim-processing
  • You are supposed to have already read and accepted the T&C on your first launch of BlackBerry Messenger. I did not find a way to access that screen after that first launch.
