Xeno Series Wiki:Privacy policy

From Xeno Series Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Xero Series Wiki is a very new wiki owned by a very new webmaster that doesn't really know how much of a privacy policy we need or all the legal mess it entails. So how about you cut us some slack while we lay this out rather informally.

  • By browsing the website, you will generate data such as what your IP address is, what browser you're using, what pages you've visited, that sort of thing. This is mostly for statistical/diagnostic reasons and will probably never be actually looked at.
  • If you make an edit, the content of your edit can be altered at will by anyone else without your permission. That's how a wiki works. If you don't like it, you shouldn't edit.
  • If you make an account, you have the option of providing things like your gender or real name. We don't actually recommend doing this but we don't think it can be turned off. Regardless, we have no intent of using this information in any way.
  • If you make an account, you have the option of giving us an e-mail. This is optional, and can be removed at any time. We won't send you any e-mails unless the relevant options are selected in your preferences; note that while some are on by default, you still must manually confirm your e-mail before any begin.
  • If you don't have an account and make an edit, your IP address will be publicly recorded in the page's history. This is necessary in order to track/block vandals and such.
  • You cannot have your account deleted. This is a core restriction of the MediaWiki software and cannot be circumvented by any means. If for some reason you wish to be separated from your account, we can rename it.
  • We use cookies because that's pretty much the only way for a user to be logged in for more than one page at a time (and also to save preference settings). If you don't want to accept cookies, you don't have to (it shouldn't be hard to find out how to tell your browser to refuse them), but you won't be able to make use of an account.
  • We currently do not have advertisements, so don't worry about those.
  • We have absolutely zero interest in using your personal information for anything outside standard website operations. This may include "because the law damands it", which will hopefully never happen.
  • Our server, and thus your information, is located in Canada. Both us and the host act towards keeping this information secure.
