FAQ

Does the badge designer track any personal data?

The badge designer does track some data, such as the address of the site you’ve plugged it into and the email address
of the user creating the badge. We do this so we can store badges against specific users in case we introduce further
saving and loading functionality. You can read more in our privacy policy.

The designer uses some cool HTML5 features, does it work in all browsers?

The badge designer does some really exciting things with the HTML5 Canvas element and some sexy Javascript. Because of
this we’re unable to support Internet Explorer :'(
