This quiz game result image is displayed on your specific device within the game played only. It is not stored on our servers. The same applies also to text possibly entered by you, your answer choices - this data is not saved on our side, it’s only processed for the result image composition for you.

If you actively decide to share this image on Facebook (e.g. by clicking the share button), it is sent to Facebook where it is going to be part of the shared feed posting.
