Wikimedia Foundation Privacy Policy Glossary of Key Terms


An "application programming interface" or "API" is a communication protocol that allows software components to communicate with each other. The MediaWiki API, for example, allows third-party software tools to communicate with Mediawiki sites (including Wikimedia Sites) to carry out certain actions, such as reading or editing a page, automatically and remotely.

En "webbläsare" är en programvara som folk vanligtvis använder för att surfa på Internet. Exempel på populära webbläsare är Chrome, Firefox, Safari och Internet Explorer. Läs mer på Wikipedia.


En "kaka" är en liten datafil som vi överför till din dator, mobiltelefon eller någon annan enhet som du använder för att besöka Wikimediasidorna, som används vanligtvis för verifiering och spårning. Varje kaka löper ut efter ett tag, men den tidsperioden beror på vad kakan används till och hur din webbläsare är konfigurerad. En "sessionskaka" är en kaka som vanligtvis löper ut när du stänger din webbläsaren eller app. En "beständig kaka" är en kaka som stannar kvar på din enhet även om du stänger ned webbläsaren eller appen. En beständig kaka löper ut efter varaktigheten som vi har fastställt (eller när du raderar den manuellt.) Läs mer på Wikipedia.

Du kan ta bort eller inaktivera kakor via dina webbläsarinställningar.

Do Not Track

"Do Not Track" ("spåra inte") eller "DNT" är namnet på ett funktion för din webbläsare att berätta för webbsidan du besöker att du inte vill bli spårad av tredjepart, vars webbsidor du inte besökte; som analystjänster, annonsnätverk och sociala plattformar. När du använder denna funktion skickas en signal av din webbläsare, som berättar att dina personliga uppgifter, speciellt om dina Internetaktiviteter och nätverkssamverkan, inte ska föras vidare till tredjepart. När personen som äger webbsidan tar emot en DNT-signal från din webbläsare kan denne antingen acceptera eller ignorera den tidigare nämnda begäran.


The “global positioning system” or “GPS” is a space-based satellite navigation system that provides location and time information on the location of devices designed to receive their signals such as car navigation systems or cell phones. Learn more on Wikipedia.

Internet Protocol Address

An Internet Protocol Address (or "IP address") is a unique number assigned to a particular device connected to the Internet. Your IP address may not always be the same on a particular device, depending on a number of variables such as your use of a proxy server or a corporate network. Generally, however, IP addresses are assigned according to the geographical location of your device and your internet service provider, and might be usable to approximate your real-life location.

"Javascript" är ett standardprogrammeringsspråk för programvaror som används på de flesta webbplatser. Läs mer på Wikipedia.

Local Storage

"Local Storage" (also known as "Web Storage") is a way for a website to collect and store information "locally" (i.e. on the user's device rather than on the website's server) and then later retrieve it again. For example, by using LocalStorage, a user's visits can be stored on their own computer, counted, and then given to us. This allow us to receive important use statistics (the count of visits), while the specific information about when each individual visit occurred would never be transmitted to us.


"Metadata" means additional information about a particular file (such as a photo or video) that usually includes things like the manufacturer and model of the device that took a photo, date and time the photo was taken, exposure time, lens focal length, ISO speed rating, and f-number. Some metadata is automatically included by the device and some is written by the owner of the device. Learn more on Wikipedia.


An "operating system" is a software program that manages your device's hardware resources and performs basic tasks like keeping track of files, recognizing when you type something into the keyboard, and sending output to your screen. Examples of common operating systems include Linux (also known as GNU/Linux), iOS, Windows, Mac OS X, and Android. Learn more on Wikipedia.

Proxy Servers

A "proxy server" is a server that acts as an intermediary between your device and the server your device is requesting information (connection to a webpage, a file, etc.) from. Learn more on Wikipedia.

Tracking Pixel

A "tracking pixel" (sometimes called "web beacons", "transparent GIFs", "clear GIFs", "pixel gifs", or "pixel tags") is a tiny, invisible image that allows us to track activities on Wikimedia Sites or activities based on email notifications we send. Although tracking pixels are commonly associated with advertising, we never use tracking pixels for advertising nor do we sell or rent the information collected through tracking pixels. Information collected through tracking pixels can only be shared with third parties in aggregated form and in accordance with the Privacy Policy. Tracking pixels help us figure out if certain features, notifications, and products are effective and if they can be improved. Learn more on Wikipedia.
