This statement describes how and when Wikimedia collects, uses, and shares the information we receive from survey participants.

Please note that this survey is powered by Google Forms, which means Google’s use of your information is governed by their Privacy Policy and Terms of Service.

Purpose of this Survey

We appreciate your feedback! This survey will help us to collect high-level use cases of the Beta Cluster test environment.

What Information We Collect

This study will collect your responses to the questions asked; there are two types of answers: defined responses, and free-form responses.

Licensing of Survey Responses

By answering the free-form response questions, you agree that we may record your answers, and agree to donate them to the public domain under the terms of Creative Commons Zero 1.0 (full text available at https://creativecommons.org/publicdomain/zero/1.0/).

Information Sharing and Disclosure

The results of this survey will be shared publicly, for the purpose of open analysis, research, and study. Aggregate data about the defined-response questions, and the raw answers to the free-form response questions, will be published on meta.wikimedia.org. For that reason, we strongly suggest that you do not provide your real name, username, email address, or other personal information in response to any questions.

We may disclose any collected information when required by law, when we have your permission, when needed to protect our rights, privacy, safety, users, or the general public, and when necessary to enforce our Terms of Use or any other Wikimedia policy.
