The badge designer application requires users to provide a valid email address in order to access the applications functionality. This email address is stored in the form of a cookie on your computer with an expiry time of 365 days from creation.
When used as part of an integrated solution a unique identifier may be shared that allows created badges to be tied to a specific user. It is recommended that developers do not pass sensitive information, such as names or email addresses, as this identifier but as a safeguard this data is never sent as plain text and is not returned from the badge designer. This identifier is, however, stored against saved badges allowing for potential future functionality.
