Dichiarazioni di non responsabilità: Questa sintesi non fa parte dell'Informativa sulla privacy e non è un documento legale. Si tratta di un pratico riferimento per comprendere la completa Informativa sulla privacy. Considerala come un'interfaccia intuitiva della nostra Informativa sulla privacy.

Riteniamo che tu non debba fornire informazioni personali per partecipare al movimento del libero sapere, pertanto puoi:

Desideriamo comprendere come vengono usati i Siti Wikimedia in modo da migliorarli, pertanto raccogliamo alcune informazioni quando tu:

Ci impegniamo a:

Attenzione:

Se aggiungi contenuti o apporti modifiche a un Sito Wikimedia senza effettuare il login, quel contenuto o quella modifica sarà pubblicamente e permanentemente attribuita all'indirizzo IP usato al momento piuttosto che al nome utente.

  • La nostra comunità di autori e collaboratori volontari è un organismo che si auto-regola. Alcuni amministratori dei Siti Wikimedia, scelti dalla comunità, utilizzano strumenti che garantiscono loro accesso limitato a informazioni non pubbliche sui contributi recenti, in modo da poter proteggere i Siti Wikimedia e applicare le politiche.
  • La presente Informativa sulla privacy non si applica a tutti i siti e i servizi gestiti dalla Fondazione Wikimedia, come i siti o i servizi che dispongono della propria informativa sulla privacy (come il Negozio Wikimedia) o i siti o servizi gestiti da terzi (come i progetti di sviluppatori terzi su Labs).
  • Nell'ambito del nostro impegno alla formazione e alla ricerca nel mondo, occasionalmente pubblichiamo informazioni pubbliche e informazioni aggregate o non personali al pubblico generale, mediante depositi di dati o insiemi di dati.
  • Per la protezione della Fondazione Wikimedia e di altri utenti, se non accetti la presente Informativa sulla privacy non puoi usare i Siti Wikimedia.

WMF open door.png Introduzione

Benvenuto!

The Wikimedia movement is founded on a simple, but powerful principle: we can do more together than any of us can do alone. We cannot work collectively without gathering, sharing, and analyzing information about our users as we seek new ways to make the Wikimedia Sites more useable, safer, and more beneficial.

We believe that information-gathering and use should go hand-in-hand with transparency. This Privacy Policy explains how the Wikimedia Foundation, the non-profit organization that hosts the Wikimedia Sites, like Wikipedia, collects, uses, and shares information we receive from you through your use of the Wikimedia Sites. It is essential to understand that, by using any of the Wikimedia Sites, you consent to the collection, transfer, processing, storage, disclosure, and use of your information as described in this Privacy Policy. That means that reading this Policy carefully is important.

We believe that you shouldn't have to provide personal information to participate in the free knowledge movement. You do not have to provide things like your real name, address, or date of birth to sign up for a standard account or contribute content to the Wikimedia Sites.

We do not sell or rent your personal information, nor do we give it to others to sell you anything. We use it to figure out how to make the Wikimedia Sites more engaging and accessible, to see which ideas work, and to make learning and contributing more fun. Put simply: we use this information to make the Wikimedia Sites better for you.

After all, it's people like you, the champions of free knowledge, who make it possible for the Wikimedia Sites to not only exist, but also grow and thrive.

Definizioni

Because everyone (not just lawyers) should be able to easily understand how and why their information is collected and used, we use common language instead of more formal terms throughout this Policy. To help ensure your understanding of some particular key terms, here is a table of translations:


Quando diciamo ... intendiamo:
“la Fondazione Wikimedia” / “la Fondazione” / “noi” / “ci” / “nostro” La Fondazione Wikimedia, Inc, l'organizzazione senza scopo di lucro che gestisce i Siti Wikimedia.
“Siti Wikimedia” / “i nostri servizi” I siti web e i servizi Wikimedia (indipendentemente dalla

lingua), compresi i progetti principali, come Wikipedia e Wikimedia Commons, nonché le applicazioni mobili, le API, le email e le notifiche; a eccezione, tuttavia, di siti e servizi elencati in “Cosa non copre la presente Informativa sulla privacy” di cui sopra.

“tu” / “tuo” / “me” L'utente, indipendentemente dal fatto che si tratti di un singolo, un gruppo o un'organizzazione e indipendentemente dal fatto che usi i Siti Wikimedia o i nostri servizi per conto proprio o di qualcun altro.
“la presente Informativa” / “la presente Informativa sulla privacy” Questo documento, dal titolo “Informativa sulla privacy della Fondazione Wikimedia”.
“contributi” I contenuti che aggiungi o le modifiche che apporti a qualsiasi Sito Wikimedia.
“informazioni personali”

Le informazioni che ci fornisci o quelle da noi raccolte che potrebbero essere usate per identificarti personalmente. A fini di chiarezza, sebbene non raccogliamo necessariamente tutte le tipologie seguenti di informazioni, riteniamo almeno che quelle che seguono siano “informazioni personali” se non sono pubbliche e possono essere usate per identificarti:

(a) il tuo vero nome, indirizzo, numero di telefono, indirizzo email, password, numero di identificazione su una carta di identità emessa dal governo, indirizzo IP, informazioni utente-agente, numero di carta di credito;

(b) quando associate con una delle voci alla lettera (a), qualsiasi dato sensibile come la data di nascita, il genere, l'orientamento sessuale, le origini razziali o etniche, lo stato civile o familiare, le condizioni mediche o disabilità, l'affiliazione politica e la religione; e

“terza parte” / “terze parti” Soggetti, enti, siti web, servizi, prodotti e applicazioni non controllate, gestite od operate dalla Fondazione Wikimedia. Questo include altri utenti Wikimedia e organizzazioni o gruppi indipendenti che aiutano a promuovere il movimento Wikimedia come i capitoli Wikimedia,le organizzazioni tematiche e i gruppiutenti nonché i volontari, i dipendenti, gli amministratori,i funzionari, i beneficiari di sovvenzioni e i subappaltatori di tali organizzazioni o gruppi.

We recognize that only a minority of you are familiar with technical terms like “tracking pixels” and “cookies” used in the Privacy Policy. Whether you are brand new to privacy terminology or you are an expert who just wants a refresher, you might find our Glossary of Key Terms helpful.

What This Privacy Policy Does & Doesn't Cover

Except as explained below, this Privacy Policy applies to our collection and handling of information about you that we receive as a result of your use of any of the Wikimedia Sites. This Policy also applies to information that we receive from our partners or other third parties. To understand more about what this Privacy Policy covers, please see below.

Examples of What This Privacy Policy Covers

For the sake of clarity, this Privacy Policy covers, regardless of language:

  • All of our major sites (found at list of major projects), such as Wikipedia, including user pages, discussion pages, and noticeboards.
  • Our blogs and APIs (unless we have provided a separate policy for those services).
  • Our mobile sites and applications, which can be found on our official list.
  • Emails, SMS, and notifications from us or sent to us from you.

This Privacy Policy, however, does not cover some situations where we may gather or process information. For example, some uses may be covered by separate privacy policies (like those of the Wikimedia Shop) or sites or services run by third parties (such as third-party developer projects on Wikimedia Labs). To understand more about what this Privacy Policy does not cover, please see below.

Ulteriori informazioni su cosa la presente Informativa sulla privacy non copre

La presente sezione costituisce parte dell'Informativa sulla privacy e intende spiegare nel dettaglio quali situazioni non sono coperte dalla nostra Informativa sulla privacy.

Siti Wikimedia con informative alternative

Alcuni siti web della Fondazione Wikimedia dispongono di informative sulla privacy alternative o di disposizioni che divergono dalla presente Informativa sulla privacy. Questi siti web includono:

il Negozio Wikimedia (coperto dalla informativa del negozio); e

donate.wikimedia.org, inclusa la procedura di donazione, come l'azione di fare clic su un banner di donazione (coperto dalla Informativa sulla privacy del donatore).

Questi siti, e altri simili, forniranno un link alla propria informativa sulla privacy (se è distinta) o a una spiegazione di eventuali disposizioni divergenti (se l'informativa del sito si basa sulla presente Informativa sulla privacy).

Membri della comunità

I Siti Wikimedia sono il frutto di passione e collaborazione, e sono mantenuti e aggiornati costantemente da una comunità globale di volontari. Pertanto, alcuni volontari hanno accesso a certe informazioni non pubbliche e l'uso di tali informazioni potrebbe non essere disciplinato da questa Informativa sulla privacy. Alcuni esempi includono:

Volontari amministrativi, come CheckUser o Steward. Questi sono volontari che mettono in atto le policy dei Siti Wikimedia e garantiscono la sicurezza degli stessi. Quando questi amministratori accedono a informazioni non pubbliche, sono tenuti a rispettare la nostra Policy di accesso a informazioni non pubbliche, nonché altre policy specifiche per quello strumento.

Fornitori di strumenti. Supportiamo le piattaforme in modo che sviluppatori terzi possano sperimentare e sviluppare nuovi strumenti e siti, come i Laboratori wmflabs.org. Quando utilizzi uno di questi strumenti sviluppati da tali volontari, potresti trasferire agli stessi delle informazioni. Quando questi volontari accedono alle informazioni non pubbliche, sono tenuti a rispettare i termini che disciplinano la particolare piattaforma sulla quale è disponibile lo strumento.

  • Altri utenti. Forniamo numerosi strumenti che consentono agli utenti di comunicare tra loro. Le comunicazioni possono essere coperte dalla presente Informativa quando attraversano i nostri sistemi, ma gli utenti che ricevono tali comunicazioni, e l'uso che ne fanno, non sono coperti da questa Informativa. Alcuni esempi includono:
    • pubblicare su liste di email ospitate dalla Fondazione;
    • richiedere supporto ai volontari tramite il sistema online di assistenza (email inviate a info[at]wikimedia.org raggiungono questo sistema);
    • inviare email ad altri utenti tramite i Siti Wikimedia (ad esempio usando la funzionalità "Invia email a questo utente"); e
    • chattare su IRC (come sul canale #wikipedia).
Terzi

La presente Informativa sulla privacy copre soltanto la modalità con cui WMF raccoglie e gestisce informazioni. I terzi che potrebbero ricevere informazioni quando tu utilizzi i Siti Wikimedia possono includere:

I Siti web gestiti da altre organizzazioni, come i siti collegati dalle sezioni "Note" di Wikipedia, o gestiti dai capitoli di Wikimedia o altre organizzazioni del movimento. Queste organizzazioni possono ricevere informazioni da te se visiti i loro siti dopo aver usato uno dei Siti Wikimedia. Sono disciplinati dalle loro informative sulla privacy.

  • Applicazioni mobili fornite da altre organizzazioni o individui. Tali organizzazioni o individui possono ricevere informazioni da te se usi le loro applicazioni per accedere ai Siti Wikimedia o ai contenuti degli stessi. Sono disciplinati dalle loro informative sulla privacy.

Strumenti di raccolta dati appartenenti a terzi collocati sui Siti Wikimedia dai volontari o da terzi. A volte, i volontari potrebbero collocare uno strumento di raccolta dati, come uno script, gadget, pixel di tracciamento o pulsante di condivisione, su un Sito Wikimedia senza che ne siamo a conoscenza. La presente Informativa non copre il modo in cui i terzi gestiscono le informazioni che ricevono a seguito di tale strumento. Se incontri uno strumento di terzi e ritieni che esso sia in violazione della presente Informativa, puoi rimuovere lo strumento personalmente o segnalarlo a privacy[at]wikimedia.org in modo che possiamo indagare.

Where community policies govern information, such as the CheckUser policy, the relevant community may add to the rules and obligations set out in this Policy. However, they are not permitted to create new exceptions or otherwise reduce the protections offered by this Policy.

WMF chart.png Uso delle informazioni

Types of Information We Receive From You, How We Get It, & How We Use It

I tuoi contributi pubblici

The Wikimedia Sites were primarily created to help you share your knowledge with the world, and we share your contributions because you have asked us to do so.

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.

Unless this Policy says otherwise, you should assume that information that you actively contribute to the Wikimedia Sites, including personal information, is publicly visible and can be found by search engines. Like most things on the Internet, anything you share may be copied and redistributed throughout the Internet by other people. Please do not contribute any information that you are uncomfortable making permanently public, like revealing your real name or location in your contributions.

You should be aware that specific data made public by you or aggregated data that is made public by us can be used by anyone for analysis and to infer information about users, such as which country a user is from, political affiliation, and gender.

Informazioni relative all'account e registrazione

Want to create an account? Great! Don't want to create an account? No problem!

You are not required to create an account to read or contribute to a Wikimedia Site, except under rare circumstances. However, if you contribute without signing in, your contribution will be publicly attributed to the IP address associated with your device.

If you want to create a standard account, in most cases we require only a username and a password. Your username will be publicly visible, so please be careful about using your real name as your username. Your password is only used to verify that the account is yours. Your IP address is also automatically submitted to us, and we record it temporarily to help prevent abuse. No other personal information is required: no name, no email address, no date of birth, no credit card information.

Once created, user accounts cannot be removed entirely (although you can usually hide the information on your user page if you choose to). This is because your public contributions must be associated with their author (you!). So make sure you pick a name that you will be comfortable with for years to come.

To gain a better understanding of the demographics of our users, to localize our services, and to learn how we can improve our services, we may ask you for more demographic information, such as gender or age, about yourself. We will tell you if such information is intended to be public or private, so that you can make an informed decision about whether you want to provide us with that information. Providing such information is always completely optional. If you don't want to, you don't have to—it's as simple as that.

Informazioni relative al tuo uso dei siti Wikimedia

We want to make the Wikimedia Sites better for you by learning more about how you use them. Examples of this might include how often you visit the Wikimedia Sites, what you like, what you find helpful, how you get to the Wikimedia Sites, and whether you would use a helpful feature more if we explained it differently. We also want this Policy and our practices to reflect our community's values. For this reason, we keep information related to your use of the Wikimedia Sites confidential, except as provided in this Policy.

Information We Receive Automatically

Because of how browsers work and similar to other major websites, we receive some information automatically when you visit the Wikimedia Sites. This information includes the type of device you are using (possibly including unique device identification numbers, for some beta versions of our mobile applications), the type and version of your browser, your browser's language preference, the type and version of your device's operating system, in some cases the name of your internet service provider or mobile carrier, the website that referred you to the Wikimedia Sites, which pages you request and visit, and the date and time of each request you make to the Wikimedia Sites.

Put simply, we use this information to enhance your experience with Wikimedia Sites. For example, we use this information to administer the sites, provide greater security, and fight vandalism; optimize mobile applications, customize content and set language preferences, test features to see what works, and improve performance; understand how users interact with the Wikimedia Sites, track and study use of various features, gain understanding about the demographics of the different Wikimedia Sites, and analyze trends.

Le informazioni che raccogliamo

We actively collect some types of information with a variety of commonly-used technologies. These generally include tracking pixels, JavaScript, and a variety of "locally stored data" technologies, such as cookies and local storage. We realize that some of these technologies do not have the best reputation in town and can be used for less-than-noble purposes. So we want to be as clear as we can about why we use these methods and the type of information we collect with them.

Depending on which technology we use, locally stored data can be anything from text, pictures, and whole articles (as we explain further below) to personal information (like your IP address) and information about your use of the Wikimedia Sites (like your username or the time of your visit).

We use this information to make your experience with the Wikimedia Sites safer and better, to gain a greater understanding of user preferences and their interaction with the Wikimedia Sites, and to generally improve our services. We will never use third-party cookies, unless we get your permission to do so. If you ever come across a third-party data collection tool that has not been authorized by you (such as one that may have been mistakenly placed by another user or administrator), please report it to us at privacy@wikimedia.org.

Locally stored data, JavaScript, and tracking pixels help us do things like:

  • Provide you with a personalized experience, such as using cookies to know your language preference, to remember the user preferences you set so we can provide you with the customized look and feel that you want, and to tell you about interesting Wikimedia issues and events in your area.
  • Deliver more relevant content to you faster. For example, we may use local storage to store your most recently read articles directly on your device, so they can be retrieved quickly. Also, we may use cookies to learn about the topics searched so that we can optimize the search results we deliver to you.
  • Understand how you use the Wikimedia Sites, so that we know what works and what is useful. For example, we might use cookies to learn about the list of articles you are following on your watchlist so that we can recommend similar articles that you may be interested in.
  • Understand how you use the Wikimedia Sites across different devices, so that we can make our varied Wikimedia Sites more efficient and effective for you.
  • Make the Wikimedia Sites more convenient to use, such as by using cookies to maintain your session when you log in or to remember your username in the login field.

Want to know even more? You can read more about some of the specific cookies we use, when they expire, and what we use them for in our FAQ.

We believe this data collection helps improve your user experience, but you may remove or disable some or all locally stored data through your browser settings, depending on your browser. You can learn more about some options you have in our FAQ. While locally stored data may not be necessary to use our sites, some features may not function properly if you disable locally stored data.

While the examples above concerning information about you collected through the use of data collection tools are kept confidential in accordance with this Policy, please note that some information about the actions taken by your username is made publicly available through public logs alongside actions taken by other users. For example, a public log may include the date your account was created on a Wikimedia Site along with the dates that other accounts were created on a Wikimedia Site. Information available through public logs will not include personal information about you.

Indirizzi e-mail

You have the option of providing an email address at the time of registration or in later interactions with the Wikimedia Sites. If you do so, your email address is kept confidential, except as provided in this Policy. We do not sell, rent, or use your email address to advertise third-party products or services to you.

We use your email address to let you know about things that are happening with the Foundation, the Wikimedia Sites, or the Wikimedia movement, such as telling you important information about your account, letting you know if something is changing about the Wikimedia Sites or policies, and alerting you when there has been a change to an article that you have decided to follow. Please note that if you email us, we may keep your message, email address, and any other information you provide us, so that we can process and respond to your request.

You can choose to limit some of these kinds of notifications, like those alerting you if an article changes. Others, such as those containing critical information that all users need to know to participate successfully in the Wikimedia Sites, you may not be able to opt out of. You can manage what kinds of notifications you receive and how often you receive them by going to your Notifications Preferences. You can learn more about email and notifications and how to change your preferences in our FAQ.

We will never ask for your password by email (but may send you a temporary password via email if you have requested a password reset). If you ever receive such an email, please let us know by sending it to privacy@wikimedia.org, so we can investigate the source of the email.

Direct communications between users (such as messages sent through the "Email this user" feature), to the extent such communications are nonpublic and stored in or in transit through Wikimedia Foundation systems, are kept confidential by us, except as provided in this Policy.

Sondaggi e Feedback

Participating in optional surveys or providing feedback helps us make the Wikimedia Sites better. Because every survey and request for feedback may be used for various purposes, we will tell you, at the time we give you the survey or request for feedback, how we plan on using your answers and any personal information you provide. If you don't feel comfortable with how we plan on using the survey or feedback results, you are not obligated to take the survey or give feedback.

Informazioni sulla localizzazione

GPS e altre tecnologie di localizzazione

Some features we offer work better if we know what area you are in. But it's completely up to you whether or not you want us to use geolocation tools to make some features available to you. If you consent, we can use GPS (and other technologies commonly used to determine location) to show you more relevant content. We keep information obtained by these technologies confidential, except as provided in this Policy. You can learn more by checking out the list of examples of how we use these technologies in our FAQ.

Metadata

Sometimes, we may automatically receive location data from your device. For example, if you want to upload a photo on the Wikimedia Commons mobile app, we may receive metadata, such as the place and time you took the photo, automatically from your device. Please be aware that, unlike location information collected using GPS signals described above, the default setting on your mobile device typically includes the metadata in your photo or video upload to the Wikimedia Sites. If you do not want metadata sent to us and made public at the time of your upload, please change your settings on your device.

Indirizzi IP

Infine quando visiti qualsiasi sito Wikimedia, riceviamo automaticamente l'indirizzo IP del tuo dispositivo (o il tuo server proxy) che può essere usato perinferire la tua posizione geografica. Noi manteniamo la riservatezza deli indirizzi IP, salvo nel caso in cui diversamente descritto in questa politica. Ad esempio, se dovessi contribuire senza avere effettuato il login, il tuo indirizzo IP sarà registrato in modo pubblico e permanente. Se stai visitando un sito Wikimedia con il tuo dispositivo mobile, potremmo usare il tuo indirizzo IP per ricerca e analisi dei dati; per personalizzare meglio contenuti, notizie e impostazioni per te; per contrastare lo spam, il furto di identità, i malware e altri tipi di abuso; per migliorare le applicazioni per mobile e altre.Privacy policy/FAQ#inferlocationFAQ

WMF share.png Condivisione

Quando possiamo condividere le vostre informazioni?

Con il vostro permesso

We may share your information for a particular purpose, if you agree. You can find more information in the list of examples in our FAQ.

Per motivi legali

We may access, preserve, or disclose your personal information if we reasonably believe it necessary to satisfy a valid and legally enforceable warrant, subpoena, court order, law or regulation, or other judicial or administrative order. However, if we believe that a particular request for disclosure of a user's information is legally invalid or an abuse of the legal system and the affected user does not intend to oppose the disclosure themselves, we will try our best to fight it. We are committed to notifying you via email at least ten (10) calendar days, when possible, before we disclose your personal information in response to a legal demand. However, we may only provide notice if we are not legally restrained from contacting you, there is no credible threat to life or limb that is created or increased by disclosing the request, and you have provided us with an email address.

Nothing in this Privacy Policy is intended to limit any legal objections or defenses you may have to a third party's request (whether it be civil, criminal, or governmental) to disclose your information. We recommend seeking the advice of legal counsel immediately if such a request is made involving you.

For more information, see our Subpoena FAQ.

If the Organization is Transferred (Really Unlikely!)

In the extremely unlikely event that ownership of all or substantially all of the Foundation changes, or we go through a reorganization (such as a merger, consolidation, or acquisition), we will continue to keep your personal information confidential, except as provided in this Policy, and provide notice to you via the Wikimedia Sites and a notification on WikimediaAnnounce-L or similar mailing list at least thirty (30) calendar days before any personal information is transferred or becomes subject to a different privacy policy.

To Protect You, Ourselves & Others

We, or particular users with certain administrative rights as described below, may need to share your personal information if it is reasonably believed to be necessary to enforce or investigate potential violations of our Terms of Use, this Privacy Policy, or any Foundation or user community-based policies. We may also need to access and share information to investigate and defend ourselves against legal threats or actions.

Wikimedia Sites are collaborative, with users writing most of the policies and selecting from amongst themselves people to hold certain administrative rights. These rights may include access to limited amounts of personal information regarding recent contributions and activity by other users. They use this access to help protect against vandalism and abuse, fight harassment of other users, and generally try to minimize disruptive behavior on the Wikimedia Sites. These various user-selected administrative groups that have their own privacy and confidentiality guidelines, but all such groups are supposed to agree to follow our Access to Nonpublic Information Policy. These user-selected administrative groups are accountable to other users through checks and balances: users are selected through a community-driven process and overseen by their peers through a logged history of their actions. However, the legal names of these users are not known to the Wikimedia Foundation.

We hope that this never comes up, but we may disclose your personal information if we believe that it's reasonably necessary to prevent imminent and serious bodily harm or death to a person, or to protect our organization, employees, contractors, users, or the public. We may also disclose your personal information if we reasonably believe it necessary to detect, prevent, or otherwise assess and address potential spam, malware, fraud, abuse, unlawful activity, and security or technical concerns. (Check out the list of examples in our FAQ for more information.)

Ai nostri fornitori di servizi

As hard as we may try, we can't do it all. So sometimes we use third-party service providers or contractors who help run or improve the Wikimedia Sites for you and other users. We may give access to your personal information to these providers or contractors as needed to perform their services for us or to use their tools and services. We put requirements, such as confidentiality agreements, in place to help ensure that these service providers treat your information consistently with, and no less protective of your privacy than, the principles of this Policy. (Check out the list of examples in our FAQ.)

To Understand & Experiment

The open-source software that powers the Wikimedia Sites depends on the contributions of volunteer software developers, who spend time writing and testing code to help it improve and evolve with our users' needs. To facilitate their work, we may give some developers limited access to systems that contain your personal information, but only as reasonably necessary for them to develop and contribute to the Wikimedia Sites.

Similarly, we may share non-personal or aggregated information with researchers, scholars, academics, and other interested third parties who wish to study the Wikimedia Sites. Sharing this information helps them understand usage, viewing, and demographics statistics and patterns. They then can share their findings with us and our users so that we can all better understand and improve the Wikimedia Sites.

When we give access to personal information to third-party developers or researchers, we put requirements, such as reasonable technical and contractual protections, in place to help ensure that these service providers treat your information consistently with the principles of this Policy and in accordance with our instructions. If these developers or researchers later publish their work or findings, we ask that they not disclose your personal information. Please note that, despite the obligations we impose on developers and researchers, we cannot guarantee that they will abide by our agreement, nor do we guarantee that we will regularly screen or audit their projects. (You can learn more about re-identification in our FAQ.)

Perché voi li rendete pubblici

Any information you post publicly on the Wikimedia Sites is just that – public. For example, if you put your mailing address on your talk page, that is public, and not protected by this Policy. And if you edit without registering or logging into your account, your IP address will be seen publicly. Please think carefully about your desired level of anonymity before you disclose personal information on your user page or elsewhere.

WMF safe.png Protezione

How Do We Protect Your Data?

We strive to protect your information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. We use a variety of physical and technical measures, policies, and procedures (such as access control procedures, network firewalls, and physical security) designed to protect our systems and your personal information. Unfortunately, there's no such thing as completely secure data transmission or storage, so we can't guarantee that our security will not be breached (by technical measures or through violation of our policies and procedures).

How Long Do We Keep Your Data?

Once we receive personal information from you, we keep it for the shortest possible time that is consistent with the maintenance, understanding, and improvement of the Wikimedia Sites, and our obligations under applicable U.S. law. Non-personal information may be retained indefinitely. (Check out the list of examples in our FAQ.)

Please remember that certain information is retained and displayed indefinitely, such as your IP address (if you edit while not logged in) and any public contributions to the Wikimedia Sites.

WMF sign.png Important info

For the protection of the Wikimedia Foundation and other users, if you do not agree with this Privacy Policy, you may not use the Wikimedia Sites.

Where is the Foundation & What Does That Mean for Me?

The Wikimedia Foundation is a non-profit organization based in San Francisco, California, with servers and data centers located in the U.S. If you decide to use Wikimedia Sites, whether from inside or outside of the U.S., you consent to the collection, transfer, storage, processing, disclosure, and other uses of your information in the U.S. as described in this Privacy Policy. You also consent to the transfer of your information by us from the U.S. to other countries, which may have different or less stringent data protection laws than your country, in connection with providing services to you.

Our Response to Do Not Track (DNT) signals

We are strongly committed to not sharing personal information with third parties. In particular, we do not allow tracking by third-party websites you have not visited (including analytics services, advertising networks, and social platforms), nor do we share your information with any third parties for marketing purposes. Under this Policy, we may share your information only under particular situations, which you can learn more about in the “When May We Share Your Information” section of this Privacy Policy.

Because we protect all users in this manner, we do not change our behavior in response to a web browser's "do not track" signal.

For more information regarding Do Not Track signals and how we handle them, please visit our FAQ.

Modifiche a questa Informativa sulla Privacy

Because things naturally change over time and we want to ensure our Privacy Policy accurately reflects our practices and the law, it may be necessary to modify this Privacy Policy from time to time. We reserve the right to do so in the following manner:

  • In the event of substantial changes, we will provide the proposed changes to our users in at least three (3) languages (selected at our discretion) for open comment period lasting at least thirty (30) calendar days. Prior to the start of any comment period, we will provide notice of such changes and the opportunity to comment via the Wikimedia Sites, and via a notification on WikimediaAnnounce-L or a similar mailing list.
  • For minor changes, such as grammatical fixes, administrative or legal changes, or corrections of inaccurate statements, we will post the changes and, when possible, provide at least three (3) calendar days' prior notice via WikimediaAnnounce-L or similar mailing list.

We ask that you please review the most up-to-date version of our Privacy Policy. Your continued use of the Wikimedia Sites after this Privacy Policy becomes effective constitutes acceptance of this Privacy Policy on your part.
