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 survey will help us understand what's working and what's not working in our current set of illustrations and help us develop new and better visuals that will be used in the Reading Wikipedia in the Classroom guide, and by the whole Movement.

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 in the following manner. Aggregate data about the defined-response questions and quotes from the free-form response questions will be published on meta.wikimedia.org; quotes will be attributed by country and role, e.g. “Trainer from Bolivia”. 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.

Raw data will only be shared with the Wikimedia staff, contractors, service providers, and volunteers 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 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/).
