What Information We Collect

This survey collects the responses you provide to the questions asked.

Information Sharing and Disclosure

Aggregate data about the results of this survey may be shared publicly. The raw information collected will only be shared with the Wikimedia staff, contractors, service providers, and volunteers who need to process this information and are subject to nondisclosure 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.

At the completion of the survey, you will find a link to our publicly visible mailing list, where you can provide your username in case you would like to be contacted about updates to Flow. If you choose to sign up, your username will be used only to contact you with information about Flow. Usernames submitted to receive these updates will be retained indefinitely, unless you choose to unsubscribe by removing your name from the list. You may do so at any time.
