Be careful, the "Little Miss" TikTok quizzes could be stealing your personal information.

Although the fun "Little Miss" quizzes have already taken TikTok by storm, there are some warnings to heed before taking part in them. According to uQuiz's privacy policy, "personally identifiable information" is gathered, "[based on] on the function(s) that are being performed."

"The vast majority of the quizzes on our website are created by users of our quiz maker," the company notes. "By taking a quiz on our website you acknowledge and agree that any information, including personally identifiable information is collected and stored on behalf of the quiz creator and is made available to the quiz creator through their account, in real-time and in downloadable form. Quiz responses remain anonymous unless you voluntarily provide personally identifiable information."

The whole thing comes down to how much personal information you provide the site. At the very least, though, the quiz collects the name that you provide at the beginning, the answers that you give to its questions, the length it took you to complete it, and the quiz's final result.

To request the deletion of your personal data, users will have to contact uQuiz directly here.
