Legal:2016 Developer Summit Registration Survey Privacy Statement

From the Wikimedia Foundation Governance Wiki

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 Survey

We appreciate your feedback! This registration survey will help us plan for the 2016 Wikimedia Foundation Developer Summit. You will be able to register for the Summit, as well as apply for scholarships to enable attendance.

What Information We Collect

This survey includes two types of responses: defined responses and free-form responses. To register you for the Summit, we will collect your name, email address, and other basic information. We will also ask for some information about your contributions to the Wikimedia projects.

Information Sharing and Disclosure

The results of this survey will be shared publicly in the following manner. Some questions ask participants to provide information which they would like to share on-wiki with other attendees. Answers to these questions will be published with attribution on the Summit wiki. For that reason, we strongly suggest that you do not provide your real name, email address, or other personal information in response to these questions. As these answers will be posted on-wiki, you will be able to edit them once posted.

Raw answers to the other questions will only be shared with the Wikimedia staff who need to process this information and are subject to non-disclosure obligations, with the exception of the circumstances described below.

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.

Licensing of Survey Responses

By answering the free-form response questions, you agree that we may record your answers, and agree to license them under the Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 3.0 unported license. We explain in greater detail here what types of information we treat as public information and what licenses apply.

Important Information

Wikimedia is a global organization committed to promoting free and open knowledge. By submitting your response, you agree to the transfer, storage, and use of the collected information to the United States and other places as may be necessary to carry out the purposes and objectives discussed above.

Wikimedia understands the importance of user privacy. For this reason, we work to protect our users from the unauthorized disclosure or use of information we maintain. The results of this survey may be retained indefinitely, both the raw responses and the aggregated data. See our data retention guidelines for more information.

Thanks again for your feedback!
