Purpose of Survey

We appreciate your feedback! This survey will help us learn about the experience of contributing to Wikipedia on mobile devices.

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 a summary of the answers to the free-form response questions, will be published on https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Mobile_contribution_research. In addition to any information included in your responses, we may view other information, including your email address, username, edit count, account age, country code, the platforms you use to contribute to English Wikipedia, and any other data provided by you or transmitted to us. In order to help us understand how and why our users visit the Wikimedia projects, we will link your responses to this survey to the collected browsing data.

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.

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.
