In general, this Policy only applies to private information stored or held by which is not publicly available.

Interactions with not covered by this Policy include, but are not limited to, aspects of browsing and editing pages, use of the wiki "email user" function. These interactions may reveal a contributor's IP address, and possibly other personal information, indiscriminately to the general public, or to specific groups of volunteers acting independently of

Users may also interact with one another outside of, via email, IRC or other chat, or independent websites, and should assess the risks involved, and their personal need for privacy, before using these methods of communication.

User accounts and authorship requires editors to register with its website, although some pages can be edited without logging in with a username, in which case they will be identified by network IP address. Users that do register are identified by their chosen username. Users select a password, which is confidential and used to verify the integrity of their account. Except insofar as it may be required by law, no person should disclose, or knowingly expose, either user passwords and/or cookies generated to identify a user. Once created, user accounts will not be removed, unless there is obvious malicious intent, as is to be judged by staff. It may be possible for a username to be changed. does not guarantee that a username will be changed on request.

Purpose of the collection of private information абмяжоўвае збор пэрсанальных зьвестак карыстальнікаў мэтамі нармальнага існаваньня сваіх праектаў, уключаючы (але не абмяжоўваючыся) наступнымі:

  • To enhance the public accountability of the project. recognizes that any system that is open enough to allow the greatest possible participation of the general public will also be vulnerable to certain kinds of abuse and counterproductive behavior. has established a number of mechanisms to prevent or remedy abusive activities. For example, when investigating abuse on the project, including the suspected use of malicious “sockpuppets” (duplicate accounts), vandalism, harassment of other users, or disruptive behavior, the IP addresses of users (derived either from those logs or from records in the database) may be used to identify the source(s) of the abusive behavior. This information may be shared by users with administrative authority who are charged with protecting the projects.
  • To provide site statistics. statistically samples raw log data from users' visits. These logs are used to produce site statistics pages; the raw log data is not made public.
  • To solve technical problems. Log data may be examined by developers in the course of solving technical problems and in tracking down badly-behaved web spiders that overwhelm the site. may load resources like JavaScript from external servers, which might affect user privacy (for example Google Adwords or translation hints). It is up to the user to mitigate exposing unwanted details because of loading resources from external servers.

Details of data retention

General expectations

IP address and other technical information

When a visitor requests or reads a page, no more information is collected than is typically collected by web sites. may keep raw logs of such transactions, but these will not be published.
When a page is edited by a logged-in editor, the server confidentially stores related IP address information for a limited period of time. This information is automatically deleted after a set period. For editors who do not log in, the IP address used is publicly and permanently credited as the author of the edit. It may be possible for a third party to identify the author from this IP address in conjunction with other information available. Logging in with a registered username allows for better preservation of privacy.

Page history

Edits or other contributions to the project on translations, user pages, talk pages and other pages are generally retained forever. Removing text from the project does not permanently delete it. Normally anyone can look at a previous version of a page and see what was there. Even if an article is "deleted", a user entrusted with higher level of access may still see what was removed from public view. Information can be permanently deleted by individuals with access to, but aside from the rare circumstance when is required to delete editing-history material in response to a court order or equivalent legal process, there is no guarantee any permanent deletion will happen.

User contribution

User contributions are also aggregated and publicly available. User contributions are aggregated according to their registration and login status. Data on user contributions, such as the times at which users edited and the number of edits they have made, are publicly available via user contributions lists, and in aggregated forms published by other users.
Reading projects
No more information on users and other visitors reading pages is collected than is typically collected in server logs by web sites. Aside from the above raw log data collected for general purposes, page visits do not expose a visitor's identity publicly. Sampled raw log data may include the IP address of any user, but it is not reproduced publicly.
Editing projects
Edits to pages are identified with the username or network IP address of the editor, and editing history is aggregated by author in a contribution list. Such information will be available permanently.
Logged in registered users:
Logged in users do not expose their IP address to the public except in cases of abuse, including vandalism of a wiki page by the user or by another user with the same IP address. A user's IP address is stored on the servers for a period of time, and can be seen by server administrators and by users who have been granted CheckUser access.
IP address information, and its connection to any usernames that share it, may be released under certain circumstances (see below).
Editors using a company mail server from home or telecommuting over a DSL or cable Internet connection, are likely to be easy to identify by their IP address; in which case it may be easy to cross-identify all contributions to the project made by that IP address. Using a username is a better way of preserving privacy in this situation.
Unlogged-in registered users and unregistered users:
Editors who have not logged in may be identified by network IP address. Depending on one's connection, this IP address may be traceable to a large Internet service provider or more specifically to a school, place of business or home. It may be possible to use this information in combination with other information, including editing style and preferences, to identify an author completely.
On wiki discussion pages:
Any editable page can theoretically be the location of a discussion. In general, discussions on occur on user talk pages (associated with particular users), on supported project talk pages (associated with particular supported projects) or in pages specially designated to function as forums (e.g., the Support page). Privacy expectations apply to discussion pages in the same way as they do elsewhere.
Электроннай поштай:
Users are not required to list an email address when registering. Users who provide a valid email address can enable other logged-in users to send email to them through the wiki. When receiving an email from other users through this system, one's email address is not revealed to them. When choosing to send an email to other users, one's email is displayed as the sender.

IRC channels are not officially part of and are not operated on controlled servers. The IP address of users who chat over such a service may be exposed to other participants. IRC users' privacy on each channel can only be protected according to the policies of the respective service and channel. Different channels have different policies on whether logs may be published.

Access to and release of personally identifiable information


The project is primarily run by volunteer contributors. Some dedicated users are given privileged access. For example, user access levels to are determined by the user's presence in various "supported projects". User group rights and group members are public.

Other users who may have access to private identifiable information include, but are not limited to, users who have access to the CheckUser function, employees, appointees, and contractors and agents employed by operators, and developers and others with high levels of server access.

Sharing information with other privileged users is not considered "distribution."

Release: Policy on Release of Data

It is the policy of that personally identifiable data collected in the server logs, or through records in the database via the CheckUser feature, or through other non-publicly-available methods, may be released by volunteers or staff, in any of the following situations:

  1. In response to a valid subpoena or other compulsory request from law enforcement,
  2. With permission of the affected user,
  3. When necessary for investigation of abuse complaints,
  4. Where the information pertains to page views generated by a spider or bot and its dissemination is necessary to illustrate or resolve technical issues,
  5. Where the user has been vandalizing pages or persistently behaving in a disruptive way, data may be released to a service provider, carrier, or other third-party entity to assist in the targeting of IP blocks, or to assist in the formulation of a complaint to relevant Internet Service Providers,
  6. Where it is reasonably necessary to protect the rights, property or safety of, its users or the public.

Except as described above, policy does not permit distribution of personally identifiable information under any circumstances.

Third-party access and notifying registered users when receiving legal process:

As a general principle, the access to, and retention of, personally identifiable data in all projects should be minimal and should be used only internally to serve the well-being of the project. Occasionally, however, may receive a subpoena or other compulsory request from a law-enforcement agency or a court or equivalent government body that requests the disclosure of information about a registered user, and may be compelled by law to comply with the request. In the event of such a legally compulsory request, will attempt to notify the affected user within three business days after the arrival of such subpoena by sending a notice by email to the email address (if any) that the affected user has listed in his or her user preferences. cannot advise a user receiving such a notification regarding the law or an appropriate response to a subpoena. does note, however, that such users may have the legal right to resist or limit that information in court by filing a motion to quash the subpoena. Users who wish to oppose a subpoena or other compulsory request should seek legal advice concerning applicable rights and procedures that may be available.

If receives a court-filed motion to quash or otherwise limit the subpoena as a result of action by a user or their lawyer, will not disclose the requested information until receives an order from the court to do so.

Registered users are not required to provide an email address. However, when an affected registered user does not provide an email address, will not be able to notify the affected user in private email messages when it receives requests from law enforcement to disclose personally identifiable information about the user.

Disclaimer believes that maintaining and preserving the privacy of user data is an important value. This Privacy Policy and actions by, represents a committed effort to safeguard the security of the limited user information that is collected and retained on our servers. Nevertheless, cannot guarantee that user information will remain private. We acknowledge that, in spite of our committed effort to protect private user information, determined individuals may still develop data-mining and other methods to uncover such information and disclose it. For this reason, can make no guarantee against unauthorized access to information provided in the course of participating in projects or related communities.
