This document helps explain how we fulfill this commitment, by describing our guidelines for data retention, system design, and ongoing auditing and maintenance. These guidelines are meant to be a living document — they will be updated over time to reflect current retention practices.
To what data do these guidelines apply?
How long do we retain non-public data?
Unless otherwise indicated, we retain the following types of data for no more than the following periods of time:
|தரவு வகை||மூலம்||உதாரணம்||அதிகபட்ச தக்கவைக்கும் காலம்|
|ஒரு பயனரிடமிருந்து தானாகவே சேகரிக்கபடும்.||
||After at most 90 days, it will be deleted, aggregated, or de-identified|
||பயனாளர் நீக்கும்வரை/கணக்கு அமைப்புகளை மாற்றும்வரை|
|Non-personal information||ஒரு பயனரிடமிருந்து தானாகவே சேகரிக்கப்படும்.||
|After at most 90 days, it will be deleted, aggregated, or de-identified|
||After at most 90 days, it will be deleted, aggregated, or de-identified|
|Provided by a user||
||Until user deletes/changes the account setting.|
|Non-personal information not associated with a user account[T 1]||பல்வேறு பயனர்களிடமிருந்து தானாகவே சேகரிக்கப்படும்.||
|Articles browsed by readers||Collected automatically from a reader||
||After at most 90 days, if retained at all, then only in aggregate form|
- For the purposes of this table, "user account" means username, user ID, or IP address; "reader" means visitor to a Wikimedia project.
How long do we retain public data?
Wikimedia hosts Wikipedia and the associated projects as part of our mission to collect, document, and freely distribute the sum of human knowledge to the world. Accordingly, when you make a contribution to any Wikimedia Site, including on user or discussion pages, you are creating a permanent, public record of every piece of content added, removed, or altered by you. The page history will show when your contribution or deletion was made, as well as your username (if you are signed in) or your IP address (if you are not signed in). We may use your public contributions, either aggregated with the public contributions of others or individually, to create new features or data-related products for you, or to learn more about how the Wikimedia Sites are used. If you mistakenly included your personal information in a contribution to a Wikimedia Site and you would like to have it removed, please consult the community’s oversight policy. Keep in mind that the transparency and integrity of our sites’ revision histories is essential to our mission, and the Foundation supports our community’s right to reject oversight requests in order to protect the projects.
If you choose to register for an account with the Wikimedia projects, you will be asked to select a username. Usernames are retained until the user requests that the account be renamed, or goes through the community courtesy vanishing process.
For the purposes of these guidelines:
- Some examples of "public information" would include:
- (a) your IP address, if you edit without logging in;
- (b) your gender, if it is disclosed under your user profile;
- (c) any personal information you disclose publicly on the Wikimedia Sites, such as your real name or age.
- Some examples of types of information that are considered to be "nonpublic information" include:
- (a) your IP address, if you edit while logged in;
- (b) your email address, if you provided one to us during account registration (but didn’t post it publicly); and
- Data is "de-identified" when it has been aggregated or otherwise retained in a manner such that it can no longer be used to identify the user.
- Data is "aggregated" when the data associated with a specific user has been combined with data from others to show general trends or values without identifying specific users.
An example of how data can be aggregated includes:
- Using ranges rather than specific numbers, such as recording that there are "between 1 and 10 editors in language X in country Y" rather than recording that there are 4 editors.
If we make exceptions to these guidelines, we will notify the community by describing the exception on this page.
- Data may be retained in system backups for longer periods of time, not to exceed 5 years.
- When we conduct a survey or other research, we will provide you with a privacy statement specifying the term of retention for information (including personal information) collected through your participation in such research. In certain cases, information may be retained indefinitely for educational, development, or other related purposes, unless otherwise indicated in the relevant privacy statement. Such information may be retained in raw, aggregated, or de-identified form until we receive a request from the participant to delete the information.
- New editor research: There is an additional short-term extension for data collected as part of the Focus on help desk project. Most EventLogging data collected for this project will be retained for up to nine months, beginning on 11 January 2019; page IDs, page titles, and longer-term session IDs will still be deleted, aggregated, or de-identified after at most 90 days. This extension is necessary in order to gain a statistically significant sample from a small pool of users and analyze the information collected. The retained data will be deleted, aggregated, or de-identified no later than 1 October 2019.
- New editor research: There is an additional short-term extension for data collected as part of the Personalized first day project. Most EventLogging data collected for this project will be retained for up to nine months, beginning on 6 May 2019; page IDs, page titles, and longer-term session IDs will still be deleted, aggregated, or de-identified after at most 90 days. This extension is necessary in order to gain a statistically significant sample from a small pool of users and analyze the information collected. The retained data will be deleted, aggregated, or de-identified no later than 6 February 2020.
- investigate and defend ourselves against legal threats or actions;
- help protect against vandalism and abuse, fight harassment of other users, and generally try to minimize disruptive behavior on the Wikimedia Sites;
- prevent imminent and serious bodily harm or death to a person, or to protect our organization, employees, contractors, users, or the public; or
- detect, prevent, or otherwise assess and address potential spam, malware, fraud, abuse, unlawful activity, and security or technical concerns.
Audits and improvements
The Foundation is committed to continuous evaluation and improvement of these guidelines, and to periodic audits in order to identify such improvements. As we make changes to existing and systems, we will update these guidelines to reflect our changing practices.
Design of new systems
- inclusion of these data retention guidelines as requirements during the design process;
- legal consultation during the design and development process; and
- inclusion of privacy considerations in the code review process.
Ongoing handling of new information
Despite our best efforts in designing and deploying new systems, we may occasionally record personal information in a way that does not comply with these guidelines. When we discover such an oversight, we will promptly comply with the guidelines by deleting, aggregating, or de-identifying the information as appropriate.
