Your presence and communications are sent to MyWorld Virtual and other Room users.

  • Custom Avatars/Digi Me: You may create a custom avatar/Digi Me. If you create an account, MyWorld Virtual will store your custom avatar/Digi Me, associated with your account.
  • Stock Avatars: If you choose one of the regular avatars/Digi Me, you may login to store information about your avatar with MyWorld Virtual. You can optionally store information Avatar/Digi Me in your browser’s local storage if you do not log in to your account.
  • Room data: Rooms are publicly accessible to anyone with the URL. MyWorld Virtual receives data about the virtual objects and Avatars/Digi Me in a Room and shares that data with others in the Room.
  • Voice data: If your microphone is on, MyWorld Global Inc receives and sends audio to other users in the Room. Mozilla does not record or store the audio.Be aware that once you agree to let MyWorld Virtual use your microphone, it will stay on as long as you remain in a MyWorld Virtual room, unless you turn it off.
  • In-Room Photos and Video: You can use the camera tool to take photos and video unless the room owner has disabled this feature. The camera tool displays a red icon during filming. Your avatar/Digi Me will also indicate to others with a red icon that you are filming and capturing audio from enabled microphones in the room.
  • Data retention: If you take a photo or video, the file is stored locally on your device and uploaded to MyWorld Virtual’s servers so that it can be shared within the room. Pinned files are stored permanently in your room unless you remove it. Unpinned files are deleted from MyWorld Virtual’s servers after 72 hours.
  • Third-Party Communications Services: MyWorld Virtual allows you to connect some third-party services to a MyWorld Virtual room.
  • Twitter: Logging into your Twitter account from MyWorld Virtual allows you to tweet and share 2D images. Any content you tweet will be shared with Twitter and published publicly on the Twitter platform. You can see Twitter’s Privacy Policy for more information.
  • Discord: MyWorld Virtual allows you to connect Discord to a MyWorld Virtual room. When someone has connected Discord to a MyWorld Virtual room, we store access tokens and the server and channel IDs that have been connected. We will synchronize chat messages, room changes, 2D and 3D objects you create, and whether a user joins or leaves with the connected Discord channel, but do not log any of these synchronized messages. For diagnostics, we log aggregated counts such as the number of messages and users who have joined relevant channels. You can see Discord’s Privacy Policy for more information.
