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 series will help us to understand the impact of Learning Days and help us to improve our delivery of the event in the future.
What Information We Collect
You will receive a total of three surveys: a pre-event survey, a post-event survey, and a follow-up survey 3-6 months after Learning Days to assess the long-term impact of the event. The surveys collect 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 some anonymized quotes from the free-form response questions, will be published on the Learning & Evaluation Team Portal 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. Raw data 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 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/).
