Because we believe that you shouldn’t have to provide personal information to participate in the free knowledge movement, you may:
- Contribute to the RSMIN Community Heritage Wiki (CHW) site without registering an account.
- Register for an account without providing an email address or real name.
Because we want to understand how RSMIN CHW is being used so we can make it better for you, we collect some information when you:
- Make public contributions.
- Register an account or update your user page.
- Send us emails or participate in a survey or give feedback.
We are committed to:
- Using reasonable measures to keep your information secure.
- Never selling your information or sharing it with third parties for marketing purposes.
- Only sharing your information in limited circumstances, such as to improve the RSMIN CHW, to comply with the law, or to protect you and others.
- Retaining your data for the shortest possible time that is consistent with maintaining, understanding, and improving the RSMIN CHW, and our obligations under law.
- Any content you contribute, add or any change that you make to the RSMIN CHW site will be publicly and permanently available.
- If you add content or make a change to RSMIN CHW without logging in, that content or change will be publicly and permanently attributed to the IP address used at the time rather than a username. (Note: This is in reference to the future improvements and ability of the site. Plans are to give access to public users for the ability to directly update the RSMIN CHW page.)
- Our community of editors and contributors is a self-policing body. Certain administrators of the RSMIN CHW site, who are chosen by the community, use tools that grant them limited access to nonpublic information about recent contributions so they may protect the RSMIN CHW site and enforce policies.
- As part of our commitment to education and research around the world, we occasionally release public information and aggregated or non-personal information to the general public through data dumps and data sets.
