This statement describes how and when Wikimedia collects, uses, and shares the information we receive from survey participants.
Purpose of Survey
We appreciate your feedback! This survey will allow us to test out new features in our apps and mobile website, and gather feedback on how to improve them.
What Information We Collect
This survey collects the responses you provide to the questions asked. For in-person interviews, your answers will take the form of verbal responses. For the take-home survey, 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 in the following manner.
For in-person tests, we will record your screen to observe your use of the Wikimedia mobile apps and mobile website. Clips from these recordings may be published on meta.wikimedia.org. If you do not want your recording to be posted publicly, you can choose to have your recording only shared with the Wikimedia Foundation staff who need to access it.
From the take-home survey, aggregate data about the defined-response questions, and a sample of anonymous 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.
Full recordings of in-person tests and raw data from the take-home survey 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.
Licensing of Survey Responses
By participating in the in-person test or 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/).
Wikimedia Foundation is a global organization committed to promoting free and open knowledge.

You also understand that the information may be transferred by us from the U.S. to other countries, which may have different or less stringent data protection laws than your country, in order to carry out the aforementioned purposes and objectives.
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.
