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 help us craft our plans for the Wikimedia Movement Strategy, a project that seeks to imagine the future of Wikimedia as we move towards the year 2030.
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 deidentified sample of 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.
Raw data will only be shared with the Wikimedia staff and contractors 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/).

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.
