This statement describes how and when Wikimedia collects, uses, and shares the information we receive from survey participants.
Purpose of Survey
We appreciate your participation! This survey will provide us with an overview of the type of cases ArbCom considers, as well as information about how members of ArbCom experience and understand the arbitration process.
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
Only the survey administrator will have access to the raw data collected via this survey. They will anonymize all information before sharing with other Wikimedia Foundation staff who need to process this information in order to achieve the goals of this project, and who are subject to non-disclosure obligations. Following the completion of this project, we may publicly share a general summary of our findings from this survey; we will not quote participants directly, nor will we attribute thoughts, ideas, or responses to any individual.
