    Yes, with either a personal or premier account your name will be visible. If you however upgrade to a business account this will not be visible.

    Yes, it is true. With a personal account your name is visible to all, but with a business account you have the option to make it not visible. It's like anything else, you pay more for extra features. It would be better to have the option with either personal or business IMHO though. Mainly for privacy reasons this would make more sense.

    For a business account, you need to have a company ?

    You have the option or it is turned off by default ?
