Because we believe that you shouldn’t have to provide personal information to participate in the free knowledge movement, you may:
Because we want to understand how Wikimedia Sites are used so we can make them better for you, we collect some information when you:
We are committed to:
- Any content you add or any change that you make to a Wikimedia Site will be publicly and permanently available.
- If you add content or make a change to a Wikimedia Site without logging in, that content or change will be publicly and permanently attributed to the IP address used at the time rather than a username.
- Our community of volunteer editors and contributors is a self-policing body. Certain administrators of the Wikimedia Sites, who are chosen by the community, use tools that grant them limited access to nonpublic information about recent contributions so they may protect the Wikimedia Sites and enforce policies.
- As part of our commitment to education and research around the world, we occasionally release public information and aggregated or non-personal information to the general public through data dumps and data sets.
Wikimedia Vakfı, işbirlikçi ve ücretsiz Wikipedia, Wikimedia Commons ve Wiktionary gibi bilgi sitelerini yöneten; kar amacı gütmeyen bir organizasyondur.
Bu Prensipler kişisel bilgilerinizi nasıl topladığımızı, kullandığımızı ve paylaştığımızı açıklar.
- Çok az kişisel bilginizi topluyoruz.
- Bilgilerinizi üçüncü kişilere kiralamıyoruz ya da satmıyoruz.
Wikimedia Sites kullanarak bu Prensiplere izin vermiş olursunuz.
Wikimedia hareketi basit ancak güçlü bir prensibi temel alır: el ele verilince herhangi birinin tek başına yapabileceği bir işten daha fazlası yapılabilir.
Biz bilgi toplamada ve birlikte çalışmada şeffaflığa inanıyoruz.Bu Gizlilik Sözleşmesi kar amacı gütmeyen Wikipedi gibi sitelere ev sahipliği yapan Wikimedia kuruluşunun sizden topladığı bilgileri nasıl kullandığını ya da paylaştığını anlatır. Herhangi bir Wikimedia sitesi kullanmanız durumunda bilgi toplama, transfer etme, işleme, depolama, ifşa ve kullanmanın bu sözleşmede açıklandığı gibi olacağına rıza göstermeyi anlamanız gereklidir. Bu, bu sözleşmeyi dikkatlice okumanız önemli demek.
Sizin ücretsiz bilgi hareketine katılmak için kişisel bilgilerinizi paylaşmamanız gerektiğine inanıyoruz. Wikimedia sitelerine kayıt olmak için gerçek adınız, adresiniz ya da doğum tarihiniz gibi kişisel bilgileri belirtmek zorunda değilsiniz.
Bilgilerinizi satmayız ya da kiralamayız, ayrıca onları size bir şey satmak için de kullanmayız. Onları Wikimedia sitelerini daha çekici ve ulaşılabilir bir hale getirmek, hangi fikirlerin çalıştığını görmek ve öğrenmeyi ve katkıda bulunmayı daha eğlenceli bir hale getirmek için kullanırız. Basitçe: Bu bilgileri Wikimedia sitelerini daha iyi bir hale getirmek için kullanırız.
Zaten, Wikimedia sitelerinin büyümesini ve gelişmesini olabilir kılan ücretsiz bilgi şampiyonları sizler gibi insanlar.
Çünkü herkes (Sadece avukatlar değil) bilgilerinin neden toplandığını ve kullanıldığını bilebilmeli, biz biraz daha resmi dil yerine ortak dili kullanıyoruz. İşte size bir çeviri tablosu:
|When we say...
||... we mean:
|"Vikimedya Vakfı" / "Vakıf" / "biz" / "bize" / "bizim"
||The Wikimedia Foundation, Inc., the non-profit organization that operates the Wikimedia Sites.
|"Wikimedia Sites" / "our services"
|"you" / "your" / "me"
||You, regardless of whether you are an individual, group, or organization, and regardless of whether you are using the Wikimedia Sites or our services on behalf of yourself or someone else.
||Content you add or changes you make to any Wikimedia Sites.
||Information you provide us or information we collect from you that could be used to personally identify you. To be clear, while we do not necessarily collect all of the following types of information, we consider at least the following to be “personal information” if it is otherwise nonpublic and can be used to identify you:
- (a) your real name, address, phone number, email address, password, identification number on government-issued ID, IP address, user-agent information, credit card number;
- (b) when associated with one of the items in subsection (a), any sensitive data such as date of birth, gender, sexual orientation, racial or ethnic origins, marital or familial status, medical conditions or disabilities, political affiliation, and religion; and

Biz ayrıca bazılarınızın cookie olarak bildiği piksel izleme giriş ve çıkışlarını bildiğinizi, bazılarınızın ise sadece bir çeşit çikolata türü sandığını da biliyoruz. Bu yeni gizlilik terminolojisinde uzman olsanız da, Temel Terimler Sözlüğü'nü yaralı bulabilirsiniz.
Bu Gizlilik Sözleşmesini Olur ve Olmazlarının Kapsadıkları
Sizin herhangi bir Wikimedia sitesi kullanmanız durumunda elimize geçen bilgiler Gizlilik Sözleşmesi'ne göre idare edilmektedir. Bu sözleşme ayrıca üçüncü şahıs partnerlerimizden alınan bilgilere de uygulanmaktadır.
Bu Sözleşme'nin Kapsamına Örnekler
Açıklık uğruna, dil ne olursa olsun, bu Gizlilik Sözleşmesi şunları kapsar:
- Vikipedi gibi bütün büyük , üye profili, tartışma sayfaları ve duyurular içeren sitelerimizde.(Büyük Projeler Listesi adresinde bulunabilir)
- Bloglarımız ve API'lerimiz (Ayrı bir sözleşme uygulamadıysak).
- Resmi listemizde bulunan mobil site ve uygulamalarımız.
- Email'ler, SMS ve size gönderdiğimiz diğer duyurular.
Bu sözleşme bilgi topladığımız bazı durumları kapsamaz. Bazılarının ayrı gizlilik sözleşmeleriyle ([$shopurl Wikimedia Shop] gibi) ya da üçüncü şahıs tarafından yönetilen siteler ([$labsurl Wikimedia Labs] gibi geliştirici uygulamaları). Sözleşmenin kapsamadığı durumlar hakkında daha fazla şey öğrenin.
- Wikimedia Sites with alternative policies
- Community members
- Administrative volunteers, such as CheckUsers or Stewards. These are volunteers who enforce Wikimedia Site policies and ensure the safety of the Wikimedia Sites. When these administrators access nonpublic information, they are required to comply with our Access to Nonpublic Information Policy, as well as other, tool-specific policies.
- Tool providers. We support platforms for third-party developers to experiment and develop new tools and sites, such as Labs wmflabs.org. When you use one of the tools developed by these volunteers, you may transfer information to them. When these volunteers access nonpublic information, they are required to comply with the terms governing the particular platform the tool is available on.
- Other users. We provide several tools that allow users to communicate with each other. The communications may be covered by this Policy while they pass through our systems, but the users who receive these communications, and what they do with the communications once they receive them, are not covered by this Policy. Examples include:
- posting to Foundation-hosted email lists;
- requesting support from volunteers through our online ticketing system (email sent to info[at]wikimedia.org goes to this system);
- emailing other users through the Wikimedia Sites (for example, by using the "Email this user" feature); and
- chatting on IRC (such as on the #wikipedia channel).
- Third parties
- Websites run by other organizations, like websites linked to from the "References" sections of Wikipedia, or run by Wikimedia chapters or other [[<tvar|wmf-affiliations>foundation:Resolution:Recognizing Models of Affiliations|movement organizations]]. These organizations may receive information from you if you visit their websites after using one of the Wikimedia Sites. They are governed by their own privacy policies.
- Mobile applications provided by other organizations or individuals. These organizations or individuals may receive information from you if you use those applications to access the Wikimedia Sites or Wikimedia Site content. They are governed by their own privacy policies.
- Third-party data-collecting tools that are placed on Wikimedia Sites by volunteers or other third parties. Sometimes, volunteers may place a data-collecting tool, such as a script, gadget, tracking pixel, or share button, on a Wikimedia Site without our knowledge. This Policy does not cover how third parties handle the information they receive as a result of such a tool. If you come across such a third-party tool, and you believe it violates this Policy, you can remove the tool yourself, or report it to privacy[at]wikimedia.org so we can investigate.
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.
Sizden Aldığımız Bilgi Çeşitleri, Nasıl Aldığımız ve Nasıl Kullandığımız
Halka Açık Katılımlarınız
Wikimedia Sitelerine gönderdiğiniz her şey, herkes tarafından görülebilir ve kullanılabilir.
Wikimedia siteleri bilginizi dünyayla paylaşmanız için kuruldu ve katılımlarınızı paylaşıyoruz çünkü bunu istediniz.
Üye profilleri de dahil herhangi bir Wikimedia sitesinde bir paylaşım yaptığınızda, her parçasının sizin tarafından oluşturulduğu, düzenlendiği ve ya silindiği bir halka açık kayıt yapıyorsunuz. Katılımlarınız (Sadece bir şeyi silmek bile olsa) yapılış tarihi ve isminizle beraber (eğer kayıt olduysanız) veya IP Adresi ile beraber (eğer kayıt olmadıysanız) gösterilecek. Sizin açık katılımlarınızı toplu ya da bireysel de olsa, yeni özellikler getirmek ya da veriye dayalı ürünler geliştirerek size Wikimedia sitelerinin nasıl kullanıldığını öğretmek için kullanıyoruz.
Bu sözleşme aksini iddia etmedikçe, Wikimedia Sitelerinde aktif olarak paylaştığınız bilgi, kişisel bilgiler de dahil, halka açık bir şekilde görünür ve arma motorları tarafından bulunabilir. İnternetteki bir çok şey gibi, dağıttığınız bilgi de başkaları tarafından kopyalanabilir ve dağıtılabilir. Lütfen kalıcı olarak halka açık kalmasını istemediğiniz bilgileri paylaşmayın, mesela katılımlarınızda gerçek adınızı ya da yerinizi belirtmeyin.
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.
Herhangi bir Wikimedia Sitesini kullanmak için profil oluşturmanıza gerek yoktur.
Eğer profil oluşturduysanız, isminizi ya da e-posta adresinizi vermenize gerek yoktur.
Eğer hesap oluşturmazsanız, katkılarınız IP adresi'nize bağlanır.
Üyelik açmak mı istiyorsunuz? Güzel! Üyelik açmak istemiyor musunuz? Sorun değil!
Wikimedia sitelerinde okuma ya da paylaşım yapmak için nadir durumlar haricinde üye olmak zorunda değilsiniz. Ancak, eğer üye olmadan katkıda bulunursanız, sizin yaptığınız paylaşımlar IP Adresi'niz ile beraber alenen gösterilecek.
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.
====Wikimedia Sitelerini Kullanmanızla İlgili Bilgiler
Information Related to Your Use of the Wikimedia Sites====
Wikimedia Sitelerini nasıl kullandığınızı görebilmek için ortak teknolojileri kullanabiliriz.
Bu bilgileri kullanıcı deneyiminizi çeşitlendirmek ve yeni özellikler ekleyerek geliştirmek için kullanıyoruz.
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.
Otomatik Olarak Aldığımız Bilgi
Like other websites, we receive some information about you automatically when you visit the Wikimedia Sites. This information helps us administer the Wikimedia Sites and enhance your user experience.
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.
Basitçe, bu bilgileri Wikimedia sitelerindeki deneyiminizi zenginleştirmek için kullanırız. Bu bilgilerin kullanıldığı yerlere örnek olarak site yönetimi, güvenlik artırımı ve vandalizmle mücadele ; mobil uygulama optimizasyonu, içerik kişiselleştirme, dil tercihleri belirleme, yeni özellik test etme ve performans arttırımı; kullanıcıların Wikimedia ile iletişimini anlama, çeşitli özelliklerin nasıl kullanıldığını araştırıp çalışma, Wikimedia kullanıcılarının demografisine dair bilgi edinme ve trend analizi verilebilir.
We use a variety of commonly-used technologies, like cookies, to understand how you use the Wikimedia Sites, make our services safer and easier to use, and to help create a better and more personalized experience for you.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
- 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.
- 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 remembering 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 this feature.
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 other the dates that other accounts were created on a Wikimedia Site. Information available through public logs will not include personal information about you.
If you choose to provide your email address, we will keep it confidential, except as provided in this Policy.
We may occasionally send you emails about important information.
You may choose to opt out of certain kinds of notifications.
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.
Size asla e-mail ile parolanızı sormayacağız (ama size geçerli parolanızı sıfırlamanız için geçici bir şifre yollayabiliriz). Eğer böyle bir mail alırsanız, lütfen şu e-mail adresine( privacy[at]wikimedia.org ) yollayarak bizi bilgilendirin, biz de böylece bizi taklit eden kötü büyücüyü takip edebilmiş oluruz.
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.
We may ask you to provide us with information through a survey or provide feedback, but you will never be obligated to participate.
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.
GPS & diğer yer belirleme teknolojileri.
If you consent, we can use commonly-used location technologies to show you more relevant content.
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.
We may automatically receive location data from your device. For example, if you upload a photo using the Wikimedia Commons mobile app, please be aware that the default setting on your mobile device typically results in the metadata associated with your photo being included in the upload.
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.
When you visit any Wikimedia Site, we automatically receive the IP address of the device you are using to access the Internet, which can be used to infer your geographical location.
Finally, when you visit any Wikimedia Site, we automatically receive the IP address of the device (or your proxy server) you are using to access the Internet, which could be used to infer your geographical location. We keep IP addresses confidential, except as provided in this Policy. For example, if you make a contribution without signing into your account, your IP address used at the time will be publicly and permanently recorded. If you are visiting Wikimedia Sites with your mobile device, we may use your IP address to provide anonymized or aggregated information to service providers regarding the volume of usage in certain areas. We use IP addresses for research and analytics; to better personalize content, notices, and settings for you; to fight spam, identity theft, malware, and other kinds of abuse; and to provide better mobile and other applications.
Ne zaman bilginizi paylaşabiliriz?
We may share your information when you give us specific permission to do so.
With Your Permission
Sizinle özel bir amaç için bilgi paylaşabiliriz, eğer onaylarsanız. Bizim şu examples listemizde daha çok bilgi bulabilirsiniz.
We will disclose your information in response to an official legal process only if we believe it to be legally valid. We will notify you of such requests when possible.
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 on opposing 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.
For more information, see our subpoena response page.
If the Organization is Transferred (Really Unlikely!)
To Protect You, Ourselves, and Others
We, or users with certain administrative rights, may disclose information that is reasonably necessary to:
- enforce or investigate potential violations of Foundation or community-based policies;
- protect our organization, infrastructure, employees, contractors, or the public; or
- prevent imminent or serious bodily harm or death to a person.
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 otherwise nonpublic information about 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.)
We may disclose personal information to our third-party service providers or contractors to help run or improve the Wikimedia Sites and provide services in support of our mission.
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 and Experiment
We may give volunteer developers and researchers access to systems that contain your information to allow them to protect, develop, and contribute to the Wikimedia Sites.
We may also share non-personal or aggregated information with third parties interested in studying the Wikimedia Sites.
When we share information with third parties for these purposes, we put reasonable technical and contractual protections in place to protect your information consistent with this Policy.
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 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.)
Because You Made It Public
Information that you post is public and can been seen and used by everyone.
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.
How Do We Protect Your Data?
We use a variety of physical and technical measures, policies, and procedures to help protect your information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure.
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 violation of our policies and procedures).
How Long Do We Keep Your Data?
We only keep your personal information as long as necessary to maintain, understand, and improve the Wikimedia Sites or to comply with U.S. law.
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.
Where is the Foundation & What Does That Mean for Me?
You are consenting to the use of your information in the U.S. and to the transfer of that information to other countries in connection to providing our services to you and others.
Our Response to Do Not Track (DNT) signals
We do not allow tracking by third-party websites you have not visited.
We do not share your data with third parties for marketing purposes.
Because we so protect all users, 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 Do Not Track FAQ.
Substantial changes to this Policy will not be made until after a public comment period of at least 30 days.
- 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.
