WikiToLearn Privacy Policy

Disclaimer: this privacy policy is heavily inspired by the Privacy Policy of Wikimedia Foundation


WikiToLearn is founded on a simple, but powerful principle: we can do more together than any of us can do alone. Our pursue for a collaborative and fine tuned spread of free knowledge couldn't be possible without gathering, sharing, and analyzing information about our users as we seek new ways to make content more usable, safer, and more beneficial.
We believe that information-gathering and use should go hand-in-hand with transparency.
We do not sell or rent your Personal Data, nor do we give it to others to sell you anything. We use it to figure out how to make WikiToLearn more engaging and accessible, to see which ideas work, and to make learning and contributing more fun. Simply put: we use this information to make WikiToLearn better for you.
In short, we collect data through the following services:

Your Public Contributions

Whatever you post on WikiToLearn can be seen and used by everyone.
WikiToLearn was 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 WikiToLearn, 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. 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 WikiToLearn is used.
Unless this Policy says otherwise, you should assume that information that you actively contribute to WikiToLearn, 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.
