GLAM Donation Survey Privacy Statement
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 Qualtrics, which means Qualtrics’ use of your information is governed by their Privacy Statement and Terms of Service. If you opt to respond to this survey via email or direct conversation instead of taking it on Qualtrics, the rest of this privacy statement will still apply.
Purpose of Survey
We appreciate your feedback! This survey will help us better understand the process and experience of donating GLAM media to the Wikimedia projects.
What Information We Collect
This survey collects the responses you provide to the questions asked; there are two types of answers: defined responses, and free-form responses.
Information Sharing and Disclosure
The results of this survey will be shared publicly, for the purpose of open analysis, research, and study, in the following manner. Aggregate data about the defined-response questions, and anonymized raw answers to the free-form response questions, will be published. 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.
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.
