The Information We Collect, And What We Do With It[edit]

In General[edit]

In order to sign up for a WikiFree account, your chosen username and password are required. “Optional information” that we request you provide may include your first name, last name, a valid email address, date of birth, and your gender. We may also request that you provide additional “optional information” such as your interests and hobbies for purposes of enhancing your profile among the WikiFree community. Any “optional information” you choose to provide may be made public. We use this information to improve your experience with the Service, including the proper targeting of advertisements.

If you request the creation of a wiki at WikiFree, all details submitted in regard to this may be made public.

WikiFree also may send one or more cookies - a small file that lives in your web browser that helps the Service operate with full functionality (such as keeping you logged into the service). Most web browsers allow you to disable cookies, and you are welcome to continue to use the Service if you choose to do so. However, some of the Service’s features may not function properly if cookies are disabled.

WikiFree’s user data is stored in Italy by AlterVista (“the Hosting Provider”), and its servers log some information whenever you access the Service; information such as your IP address, the time of your visit, your browser type and your browser's language setting.

If you send a communication to the Organization, we may hold onto that communication so that we can respond appropriately, and so that we can incorporate your feedback to improve the Service.

You are not required to register for an account or to provide any personal information to us in order to use the Service.

WikiFree collects all the information you provide when you modify the content of a page or the Service (such as making edits, uploading images, etc.) An indicator that you provided that information is left on the History tab associated with the edited page or appropriate special/image page; on the Recent Changes link, in the Community box on the left side of the wiki pages, and in your user contributions.

Sharing Your Information[edit]

WikiFree only shares your information with others in the following circumstances:

  • As described above - With our subsidiaries and affiliated companies, contractors, and vendors. We require these parties to process your information in compliance with this policy.
  • As required by law enforcement agencies
  • As we, in our sole judgment, deem necessary to investigate a breach of security - If the Company becomes involved in a merger or acquisition or any form of sale of some or all of its assets, we will provide notice to you, via an update to this policy, of any personal information to be transferred and/or subject to a different policy.

We may also share with third parties aggregated, non-personal information, such as the number of new user registrations over a specific time period or the number of users who edited a particular wiki.
